What I Loved: April 2018

The concept of this post is that I share with you a handful of things that I was really into during the last month. Some of the things I continue to love, while other things I get over as they tend to have a short shelf life. But I recently realized that I never did a What I'm Loving post for December 2017 or March 2018. Both months were quite busy for me. I thought about adding some of the things that I loved in those respective months to this post, but that sort of defeats the purpose of this concept. Unless I'm still loving items from those months now, then everything here should be in the moment. So, without further ado, here's everything I loved in the month of April! What were you into this month?
Suits: It's no surprise that I've been a big fan of Suits this month. I blew through all episodes on Amazon Prime and I'm now watching the last couple episodes of season 7 on USA one episode per week like a low-born pleb. Granted, the show starts to falter come season 5 or 6, and now that Meghan Markle (Rachel Zane) is set to marry a prince, her chemistry with Patrick J. Adams' character (Mike Ross) just isn't the same either. Neither actor will return to the show after season 7 anyway. But I'm invested in this show now, and I'm excited to see the wedding season finale tomorrow night. I don't think I'll be back for season 8, but I will say that Suits has some of best characters and comedic writing on TV (it's the dramatic writing that needs help). Are you planning on watching the finale? #FarewellMike&Rachel

Succulents: I can't tell you the amount of succulents I have in my house. Some -- like the succulent terrarium I own -- were gifted, but others I bought myself. I just find them to be great decorative pieces that don't require much attention. And since I don't have a green thumb, they really work for my house -- all 10-15 of them. My favorite is actually a wire ampersand succulent that I got from Target, but I can't seem to find it online. Are you into succulents?
Unique Sunglasses: If you've been around here for long, then you've noticed that I'm a big fan of sunglasses. I almost always wear them in my outfit photos. Just look at the image below to see for yourself. You can also see that I clearly have a good side, lol. Right now I've been into sunglasses even more, specifically unique styles and shapes. I'm also wearing clear lenses a lot because I realize that even though I don't actually need glasses, they need me! ;) I happen to look pretty good in them. I haven't given the tiny sunglasses trend a shot yet. Still not sure how I feel about them or if they even look good on my face. The jury's still out. What are your thoughts on tiny sunnies?

Polka Dot Dresses: Polka dots have always had their place in my closet. And this spring, I'm particularly excited to see them on dresses. I know that florals are all the range right now, and that's fine, but I think we can leave a little room for some dots. If you're a fan of the mustard polka dot dress that I shared in the image -- shop it here -- as it's only $24 and comes in a bevy of other colors. If we're lucky, the other dress might show up on the Muse in the near future...

  6. I would definitely consider adding a polka dot dress to my closet!
    And I'm surprised Suits is going on to another season without Mike and Rachel, especially when everything this season has been wrapping up with the other characters. Honestly I didn't see how things would continue once Mike's secrete was out feel the show has already outlived itself. In this day, when every time you turn around you hear about another revival, it seems we can not let go of anything.

    1. Girl, preach! They probably should have ended the show back in season 5 or something. But I thought they'd end it after this season considering Mike and Rachel aren't returning. But who knows what they'll do with season 8.

  20. I love Suits and I knew it had to end at some point with her marrying a Prince. It didn't seem the same after a while, but I'll see it through to the end. They're making a Korean version of it, so I might see how they turns out. I like the word succulent, haha. But, they are so cute to have in the house. Unique sunglasses are the best, I have a few pairs on my list to get soon!! Great things :) x

  21. I'm so with you on unique sunglasses shapes and polka dots! I can't get enough of either this Spring. I've never watched Suits but I think Meghan Markle's life is unreal, so fun watching her and Harry get ready for their wedding!!

  25. OMGGGG! I LOVE terrariums! I'm a major gardener and when winter gets his grip on our city (for most of the year), I take the gardening inside. Terrariums are the perfect option for this too. I splurged and got a super expensive one that my puppy keeps getting into. SIGH.
