Ruffle Sweaters
Well, happy middle of the week friends! This week seems to be going much much better than this time last week, so I am one happy mom of the stay at home variety. Nothing too exciting has gone on. Chris has been off (so far) this week so we have been trying to get some errands done and out of the way before the weekend. Ace's days are always so long Tuesday-Thursday that we have a ton of extra time to run around or switch off watching the kids depending on what each of us has going on.

The home projects are now beginning since we are creeping closer and closer to moving! And I am telling you, my children are far more destructive than my giant dogs. (we also have a very high threshold for wild and crazy activities in this house, as evident on my snapchat. The pulling each other on roller blades with hockey sticks didn't end well). I have been trying to tell realtors that in Savannah when they say "well yes the owners will allow large dogs up to 65 pounds". I am sorry, that is not a large dog in my house, that is just a large primary school child. But!! Two houses popped up this week that are near perfect for our family size, and backyard preferences. I am hoping money can talk a little bit and I can convince these people that the size of my dogs really has nothing to do with their destruction level. One conversation went like this:

me: well yes we have two dogs, a labrador and a great dane.
owner: oh okay we have a chocolate lab, great dogs. what are their weights?
me: cough....cough.... 95 and 118, respectively.
owner: silence......chuckle...umm...was that your weight or the dogs?
me: well I am flattered you think I weigh 95 pounds, but those are the dogs. 
owner: well, let me think about it and I will email you. 
me: i'll double the pet deposit. 
owner: crickets.

Have I ever told you how excited I am for the day that this military journey comes to a close and I can have 600 animals and not have to worry about it? The excitement is real. 
Sweater outfits for spring
Zara ruffle sweater
But it is totally fine, it will all work out. I am actually really excited for this move. The area has some of my favorite stores! I know, it is probably not the best practice to gauge my moving happiness off of shopping opportunities. But can you say Anthropologie and Sephora? Because I can! 

Speaking of shopping! This oversized ruffle sweater is the softest and most comfortable thing I currently own. It is lightweight, so perfect for this little spring transition we have going on. 

I hope you guys are having a great week thus far!


  1. Oh man I'm trying not to laugh but your comment about it being a large primary school child just made me laugh hard!! I'm sorry it's been a little harder finding something, but I know you guys will! I love that top - it's so fun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Love the gray and white! And the ruffles on the sleeves are so cute! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. I love that ruffled top and slip-on sneakers like those. I think the kerchief scarf tied to your gorgeous bag was a great idea. =) The story about your large dogs is funny but I wish you luck. Moving, selling and buying houses is not easy.

    Do come by tomorrow and every Thursday and linkup with me. Share your awesome style with my readers. Happy Hump Day!

    <3 Ada.

  4. Fingers crossed that you get a house!! Also who would say no to a pet deposit being deposit?!

  5. I KNOW!!! People are really unsure of Shameless' size. But if you know a great dane then you know they really are not destructive at all! He plays hard and naps harder. Haha

  6. Love your top!

  7. I know this post is about the top but I LOVE those sneakers. I bought a cheap pair at Target in pink and they cut my feet so badly I took them RIGHT BACK! So sad, but I knew I'd never wear them.

  8. What a gorgeous top! I love the ruffle detailing on the sleeves. Such a great look!

  9. My boys are way more destructive than my dogs ever were! I hope you find a place that will let you have your poochies soon!!

    pumps and push-ups

    1. 100% my dogs are a piece of cake in comparison! haha ;)

  10. Sooo jealous you're going to Savannah! So many awesome shopping opportunities AND the outlets! And Whole Foods....GAH!

  11. Loving this look! And I hope that the money talking thing works out for you! I agree sometimes kids can be far worse than a well trained dog!

  12. Obsessed with this ruffle sweater! So cute! Aw I hope everything works out and you find the perfect place for your family and ginormous pups! ;)
