Recent Finds, 3/22

Scalloped Coat

A few things today:

Serena and Lily is having a huge sale. This kind of never happens, so if you’ve been lusting over something for a while, now’s your time to pounce! Everything is 20 percent off with code “INSPO.” (Crazy!) We recently re-did our home office/guest room with Serena and Lily, so check out this post for our favorite products! (Also, here are Emma’s table and chairs.)

I’m feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and a bit down. I know it’s just because I’m in the third trimester–this happened when I was pregnant with Emma, too–but ugh. Trying really hard to get enough sleep (so many naps), eat right, get out, and take it easy… but with the exception of the naps, not much seems to be making a difference. Is anyone out there in the third trimester, too? How’s it going for you? Any tips on how to make it through? (Funny how quickly I’ve forgotten…)

We’re having a low-key weekend here in Chicago. This, I think, is going to help! We don’t have anything on the agenda except for a date night with Kira and Tom, which is sure to lift my spirits. Other than that, I’m thinking a trip to our nearby two-in-one playplace/coffee house would be nice… along with perhaps a bookstore visit? I could use a new read to help me unwind at the end of the day. Let me know if you have any suggestions. :) Feel-good stuff is requested, haha.

I’m in love with this scalloped coat. Yes, I have such a thing for pink coats… but isn’t it just darling?! Sigh.

On to this week’s “Recent Finds”!

Guys, my favorite Dudley Stephens turtleneck is still in stock! I love it in the navy and the beige/blush color. Get it while you can! Runs TTS, but when I’m not pregnant, I normally order one size up since there isn’t any stretch. Can’t recommend it more; it’ll get you through these next couple of chilly months!

I’m trying really hard to not buy things for “post baby,” but I couldn’t help myself with this one. IT’S SO ME. I love it! And it’s on sale. :)

Trying hard to resist this one. ;) I’m all about modest bathing suits, and J.Crew nailed it with this one. I love that it has padding, too!


Here it is again. Heart eyes!

LOVE the bows on this navy jumpsuit.

If you’re looking for a great pair of white skinny jeans that won’t break the bank, try these! I love mine, and have had them for years.


One of my best secrets for wearing cute shoes during the spring and not freezing my toes off is opting for closed-toe sandals. I love the scalloping on these!

These are on sale and would look so cute with white jeans and a navy striped tee.

STILL THINKING ABOUT IT. Just throw it over a white blouse or button-down and it’s the cutest outfit ever.

Lilly! Sneakers?! I love it.

Do these remind you of the ocean or of prison? I can’t decide.

The iconic J.Crew trench is on sale! You can’t go wrong with this one.

BUT ALSO MY FAVORITE TRENCH OF ALL TIME HAS BEEN RE-STOCKED! (It has a quilted liner so it’s super warm.) The re-stock won’t last long, so definitely grab yours if it’s available.

This is a new one! No liner, but it’s really cute.

I’m about to go down a coat hole. Another pink one! I love!

Barbour brought back its classic yellow rain coat!

The gingham lining. I can’t. But I can. And I will. Just kidding. I need zero additional coats. #chicagoprobs


This is a FLEECE wrap coat. For all you girls who are freezing during springtime.

I love these!

The bows on the back. :) If you have an event this spring, this dress would be the sweetest!

Or this one!

Favorite jumpsuit of the season? I know it’s just begun but I can’t imagine a cuter one…

Those huarache sandals I keep talking about! GET THEM. They’re cloud shoes. And you know how much I love cloud shoes.

This top has been an all star for me this year. It runs big, so size down if you’re not pregnant and either order your normal size or one size up if you are.

Favorite cashmere sweater of the moment!

A great white top that goes with everything. Size down.


An affordable woven bag! Adore this one.

I’ve heard that these shoes are insanely comfortable.

MY FAVORITE SUNGLASSES SNAPPED IN HALF. I’m SO sad. These kind of look like them, though. Thinking about trying them. But still devastated.

The cutest!
