I am always extremely thankful and overly excited when I get to go on vacation with Zach and this time is no different. However, I’ve spent the past month battling the flu, then bronchitis and now a sinus infection so to say that I could use some warm weather and a vacation would be an understatement. I never, and I mean never, get sick. In fact I can’t recall ever missing a day of work due to sickness and couldn’t tell you the last time I went to the doctor that wasn’t for pregnancies. So long story and a lot of boxes of tissues later I an counting down the days until I can feel the sun on my face and hopefully have the sniffles no longer.
I know that this isn’t the most picture-perfect post for the first day of spring and you would much rather see a great pair of espadrilles and pretty dress. I’ll get to all of that tomorrow but I’ve been sitting on this post for awhile and needed to go ahead and push it live. After all this is what I’m wearing day in and day out because while the calendar says March the temps feel a whole lot like January. And when the weather is cold I always grab a Patagonia vest. I love this thin black one because I can wear it with my workout clothes or with a casual sweater and distressed jeans. For a ton of other ideas on how to style vests visit this post. You can also find outfit inspiration on this pinterest board that I created. I share it with a couple of my blogger friends and we keep it full of outfit photos.

I’m going to shoot you guys straight here. I honestly could not tell you the last time I stepped foot in a Loft and this post is in no way sponsored. A lot of what I do here is troll around the internet in search of new products, clothes and accessories I love. I’m constantly looking through retailers sites to see if there is something cute in their new arrivals or if I need to remove them from my list of favorite online retailers. In doing so I happened across Loft’s website and let me tell you there are some cute clothes! Here are my 12 favorites.. and bonus, they are all under $100!

Bell Sleeve Blouses. Try to say that ten times fast. If wearing bell sleeves is wrong I don’t wanna be right. For the life of me I cannot figure out what it is with me and these dang huge sleeves. I don’t know if it’s because they are a perfect mixture of classic structure and feminine details or if it’s because I have an innate desire to look like Jim Carey in when he does the conga in The Mask. Regardless of the cause I’m just going to go with it because every time I wear one of these tops I just feel pretty. Oh so pretty.
