Happy Friday, friends! I am going to start off this post the way I start off all of my posts lately; talking about the weather! 😉 I just cannot help it! This past week we have seen so much sunshine and snow melting, it is magic for the soul! Of course, I am not a fan of having to strip my kids down to pants and shirts at daycare pickup because their snow gear is literally DRIPPING WET, but ya win some, ya lose some. I’ll take the sunshine and fresh air, even if it means dealing with a huge wet mess and running my dryer extra. With all of this spring weather, I cannot help but start shopping for warm weather items, so keep reading for this week’s favorites! And as always, if you want to see items daily, follow along over on my Instagram!

Shorts For Tall Girls
I swung into Target earlier this week, and finally felt like we are close enough to warm weather that I can justify shopping for shorts (all the praise hands). I tried on a few pairs, but HAVE to share with you the tie-dye pair below. They are cut shorter in front and longer in the back, which is a dream for tall girls! I had a pair from American Eagle that was cut like this and I literally wore them for a decade. So I did a happy dance when I tried these on and realized they had the same cut! If you are tall, these are PERFECT and the colors are tame enough that they surprisingly pair well with a lot of styles!
The Best Amazon Dupe
I grabbed lunch with my sister earlier this week, and she had the CUTEST purse with her. She told me it is actually a Chanel dupe, and sent me comparison pictures. There are a few options on Amazon, this one is less than $25 and this one is a little over $100. My sister has the more expensive one, so I am planning on ordering the cheaper one and comparing. I will be sure to report back and tell you if the ‘splurge’ is worth it, even though it is still a STEAL compared to the Chanel price tag 😉
Must Have Denim
You know I love me a good pair of jeans, and after trying out just about every tall option out there, American Eagle proves time and again to have the best and most flattering fit for me. I LOVE that nearly all of their jeans come in extra long, and they are so flattering on the booty. I fell in love with the wash and distressing on this pair. They are a high waist with plenty of stretch, I highly recommend!
Okay you guys, HOLD. THE. PHONE. I think pretty much everyone has Amazon Prime, and I have definitely taken advantage of free shipping and returns on items to try out different colors/sizes. But how many of you have tried Prime Wardrobe? You select a minimum of three items, and they are shipped to you without you being charged! Once received, you have a week to try them out and decide if they are items you want to keep. You then are prompted to select which items you are keeping/returning, and anything you don’t want, you just package back up and attach the shipping label they send you! I know there are a lot of subscription services out there, but to be able to do this on Amazon, where we all already have a membership, is AMAZING. My jacket, dress, and Adidas shoes below are all part of my Prime Wardrobe order! I LOVE the jacket so much-like I didn’t realize until I put it on why people rave about this brand so much. And the dress is ridiculously soft and a great quality. It does run large, so if you are between sizes, size down. I love the shoes, but was able to wear them around my house for a bit before determining I need the next size up, so they are going back so I can order a new size! The black slip on shoes are not Amazon, but you can find them at Target 🙂
Seriously, this is the most amazing service, and gives me yet another reason to swoon over Amazon. I will also say that Prime Wardrobe items are limited to certain brands, but they are all higher quality items compared to a lot of other Prime clothing I have gotten. I 10/10 recommend giving it a try. You literally have nothing to lose!
All About That Coffee
If you didn’t catch my blog post earlier this week, I shared all about Cameron’s Coffee! They are a Minnesota based company, and are my new favorite brew to have in our home. Head to the post for a full recap, and be on the lookout for lots of fun things to come with them in the future!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, we are off to another family fish fry tonight, and will likely be playing Secret Hitler again. Hopefully this time doesn’t end with me refusing to speak to my husband afterwards, haha! Cheers friends!
