Currently Craving: March's Pretty Periwinkles & Shades of Gold


Happy... April!! I had to think about that one for a second! I hope your Easter/Passover weekends (if you celebrate!) were filled with family, celebrating God and warm spring weather - it finally was warm here! Today not so much - I do NOT want to talk about what's on the ground right now (hint: it's white) and the fact that the Yankees Home Opener was switched to tomorrow, but the sun is supposed to come out later so hopefully it melts quickly! I have way too many cute spring things to be wearing to deal with this snow in April LOL! When putting together March's Currently Craving list, I found myself adding all things periwinkle and gold - so here's lots of spring inspiration for you to get just a little more excited for the spring:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

1. Periwinkle Loafers: these also come in (the prettiest) pink, black and nude/beige but I can't resist this pretty periwinkle color! They're on sale for $48 and there's an additional sale going on also. They're perfect for spring and a great, less expensive (but just as nice) option for these popular, $228 loafers.

2. Gold Laptop Stand: this is a TOTAL game changer. It comes in gold, gray and silver and it lifts your laptop to the height of your eyes so you won't slouch down just to see your screen. I slouch wayyyy too much!! I find myself doing it all the time and when I try to stay sitting straight and tall I slowly but surely slouch back down, and then wonder why my back hurts by the end of the day. *eye roll emoji*

This laptop stand is the best money you could spend - this specific one I showed is meant for MacBooks (hence the color choices matching the laptop colors - I secretly love how matchy it is! ;) but THIS stand can fit any laptop size up to 17" and is $10 cheaper.

3. Circle Straw Crossbody: so there's two major spring trends that we're seeing on repeat this season - straw bags and accessories and circle bags. Put 'em together and you have this cute crossbody! I've seen so many circle straw bags like this so far this spring and I can't get enough of them! They can be sort of on the expensive side but there's a ton of options and after searching high and low for one that I loved, I found this $29 version and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did because 1. it keeps selling out and 2. IT'S SO CUTE! I'm so glad I didn't spend as much as I was going to on a more expensive version - this one is great quality (which actually surprised me)

Here's some more trendy, circle straw bags to shop this season:


Sidenote: have you seen my spring trends post?! It has a break down of the 11 best spring 2018 trends and the cutest finds for each! It's been a long week - treat yourself!

4. Jet Lag Face Mask: if your skin has been craving some extra moisture lately with all of the crazy weather changes or have been traveling, this is for you! It's so soothing and worth giving a try! I'm loving it!

5. Pearl & Gold Hoop Earrings: these are on major sale - they're under $20 and just so cute! I always look for statement earrings that are light enough that they don't bother my ears and these are perfect. So dainty and so fun!

6. Travel Wallet: this is a MUST for travel! I've been looking for a travel wallet like this for so long; keeping everything you need when you travel in one place that's easy to get to is so important and keeps your sanity in check, hah! This $28 travel wallet would also make a really cute gift for your girlfriends!

7. Sheer Lace Kimono: kimonos have always been one of my very favorite spring and summer accessories - great for light layering or dressing up an outfit! This one is a bit pricier, but it's absolutely stunning and it's one of those must have spring buys - you'll wear it a ton and year after year! I love the floor length style, so different and chic!

8. Pineapple Table Lamp: I. Need. This. In. My. Life. Anytime I see anything with a pineapple on it I freak out a little bit!

9. Cut-Out Wedges: on the market for some new, super versatile AND really comfortable wedges? These are for you! I bought them not expecting to love them as much as I do - they're the perfect height and are way more comfortable than you'd expect. I love them and will be wearing them on repeat for the next few months!

10. Pearl Embellished Sandals: can't stop won't stop shopping for pearl-everything! These are on sale for $39 and I guarantee you'll wear them all spring and summer long and with just about every outfit!

11. Double Stone Pendant Necklace: this necklace comes in so many colors and I want them ALL! It's stunning and I love that it can be worn as an every day necklace - even being more of a statement pendant, it's simple enough to go with everything.

12. Floral Embroidered Bag: $55 for a floral embroidered bag with jewels, that doubles as a crossbody and a clutch, that also comes in blush?! Yes please! *adds to cart*

What's on your shopping list this month?!
XOXO -A

  3. That floral embroidered purse is so beautiful! I almost bought a similar one in white, but ended going up with a basic, black bag since I didn't have one. I might have to go back and get it though.
