Happy First Day of May! I can't believe we are already 4 months through 2019.  These photos are from Easter Sunday. The weather was still a bit dreary but Christian and I stopped at a local historic society to snap these photos with beautiful blossoming trees! A lot of the people on this street got this same type of tree a few years ago so each Spring we are greeted with about a half a mile of beautiful pink flowering trees. You have to love communities coming together to make something so pretty.

Once again I'm wearing my new white blazer. This time I wore it with one of my favorite Target designer collaboration pieces - a Jason Wu for Target floral dress! I wear this almost every Easter because it's so perfect for the holiday. It definitely ranks in the top of my dress collection - quite a feat considering I have some "real" Jason Wu (and Burberry!) dresses in my closet.

Blazer: Massimo Dutti (Roundabout Resale), Dress: Jason Wu for Target floral dress, Sandals: Cole Haan 'Minetta' (Amazon), Necklace: BubuRuby

As I mentioned last week - and pretty much any holiday - we have 2 different celebrations with each side of the family for holidays so we aren't rushing to two houses on the same day. For Easter my Dad's side of the family came to my parents house on Saturday for a lovely dinner. The weather was pretty gross so I had to take photos inside. Luckily I have a great photographer who can weather any situation ;)

I wore the same jacket for both of my outfits but styled it with different shoes and dresses. For the first day I wore a long sleeve silk dress because I knew it would be the cooler day of the weekend. I opted to not wear tights because I'm sick of having to cover up my legs for cold weather. I like to wear this particular dress with my fun Lanvin pumps. Such a gorgeous color that matches the dress perfectly.

Enjoy Jude's cameo, he's my brother's dog.

I almost made it through the month without buying any clothes. But then Roundabout sent an email yesterday morning about their winter blowout. 80% off clothes and shoes!! AHH! So I went hoping I wouldn't find anything and I walked out with 3 jackets...whoops!

One is a white blazer which normally isn't my style, because I'm afraid of getting white dirty, but I was drawn to it so now I have to be brave and wear white! Next up is a Sandro Paris burgundy blazer. I've been wanting something from Sandro for quite a few years but could never pull the trigger on anything because they're so pricey. Last is a purple Rag & Bone wool jacket with leather details. I liked it because it's like a blazer but since it's knit that makes it a little more casual.

I'm hoping to get back on track with my no shopping next month, but we'll see! You know I can never pass up an amazing deal if I see one. And I have a $15 credit for The RealReal expiring....

Colors are off a bit in these photos but I took them last night so the lighting wasn't the best. The perils of buying something the day before my wardrobe update is posted!
