A Mint Condition Transition
















This is a great “transitional” outfit into Fall. Especially on days when we get those chilly mornings, that quickly heat up around lunch time here in the South. I found this pretty, lace blouse at Target, and I fell in love with the bell sleeves & detail. I also like this one, and this one, too. These jeans have been on repeat, and will continue to be into the Fall/Winter months. I love the undone hem for something new, and they’re so comfortable with the higher waist.
This Stadium coat has been redesigned year after year, by J.Crew, because it’s just that good. It’s so warm, but what I like best about this coat is that it’s available in all of the happiest, brightest colors. Who doesn’t want to be “cheery” in the cooler months? I know, I definitely do! Right now, I’m eyeing the pink one (it’s currently on sale!). I bought this “mint” one two years ago, and wear it year after year, so it’s totally worth the investment. It adds just the right “pop” of color that you crave in the cooler months, especially to a neutral outfit like I’m wearing in this post.

Have a happy day, Friends!

Spring! Spring! Spring!

Happy Spring, Everyone!

Our wedding anniversary is the first day of Spring, so that makes this time of year extra, extra special for us!!

Easter is this weekend, and I can’t wait to see our little one see the Easter basket, and hunt for eggs after church! So excited!

I took a bit of a break from blogging in the last month, but I’m back! And, I’m oh so happy to be back!

There are so many great Spring finds for your closet and home out there right now, so I thought I would do a quick round up of some of my favorites!

Happy Shopping!

Swing Pintuck Dress

You can’t go wrong with an easy, breezy dress like this for Spring. I just added this to my closet, and I can’t wait to wear it on warmer, sunny days.

Sleeveless Flounce Top
jcrew flounce top
Polka dots are one of my favorite prints, so this one was definitely added to my closet. This is perfect worn with a blazer or alone. It’s on major sale right now, too!

English Factory Dress

This dress is even more gorgeous in person! It’s so soft, and the fit is true to size. I think I’m going to have this one on repeat this Spring/Summer!

Loft Off the shoulder blouse
loft eyelet offs
This is so so cute. It think it would be a great date night top. Right now, it’s 30% off. Better order it fast!

 Diamond Lace Swing Top
Loft lace top
This top is even more beautiful in person. I actually wore it on our 6 year anniversary date night last weekend. I styled it with my navy skinny dress pants from jcrew and nude suede pumps (kicking myself for not taking a photo of us for instagram!) I might have to get it in white as well. It’s that good!

St. Anne Spring Monogram Tote
Barrington totes
I’m so in love with the new St. Anne Tote Spring styles from Barrington Gifts. I love the baby bag I’ve had for a few years now, but this is the design (above) I’m leaning towards now! So many fun color options to choose from. I’m pretty sure I’ll be redesigning it again and again, but I’m definitely making it my new Spring bag!

 Pillow Flamingo Sheet Set

These are A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!! I would put them in our guest room where we have 2 twin beds. Such a happy print. Don’t you think?

Blue and White

I’ve also had a lot of luck lately in finding more blue and white for our house at HomeGoods! I stocked up this past weekend for our dining room sideboard (found 4 ginger jars/vases in various sizes, all under $30!). I have them in our kitchen, den, dining room & master bedroom. To say I’m obsessed is a bit of an understatement!

What are you loving for Spring so far?

Have a happy Tuesday, Friends!

Loving Lately – A Few Fun Things

Happy Saturday, Friends!

It’s been a whirlwind of a week here, hence the lack of blog posts, and please know that I’ve missed it terribly. My computer was acting up, and now that we’ve got that working again, I’m back! So, I thought I’d pop in and say “hello!” as well as share some things that I’m loving lately.

Joules Field Welly Rain Boots

As you know, I’ve been searching for a good pair of rain boots, and I found these on Amazon. I absolutely LOVE them. They are so cute and comfortable. I really like the pink, because it adds a little bit of happiness to an otherwise gloomy, rainy day. The best part is that they’re on amazon prime, and we were able to use our cash back bonus to pay for them! Gotta love it when that happens! Guilt-free shopping  – sold!

all in good taste

Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book? Especially one from Kate Spade? My sweet husband surprised me with pre-ordering this one for me. I cannot wait to flip through it while sipping a good cup of coffee (during my little one’s nap, of course!).

Threshold Brown Faux Fur Throw

This is an incredibly soft & chic throw I recently added to our family room. My little one loves it just as much as I do. It’s machine washable, thank goodness. And, right now, it’s 15% off!

And, this is always a good reminder…

Enjoy today, it’s a gift!

Plan Your Look

How many times have you woken up in the morning, walked into your closet and said “I have nothing to wear,” even though your closet is full of wonderful clothes to wear? This happens to me so many times that I would be embarrassed to put a real number on it. Just ask my husband, he’s a numbers guy, so he may actually have the real number (And, Honey, I don’t want to know). Of course, that statement is soon followed by “I need to go shopping asap!” He just patiently listens until my little “fashion fit” is over. We always laugh about it after the fact, but it’s “real” to me in the moment. To a girl who LOVES fashion, it’s a crisis, even though deep down I know it’s not.

I love my clothes, I truly do, but let’s face it, we all get bored with them sometimes. And, sometimes, all we need is to do is to plan a little bit better. And, especially on those mornings where you don’t want to/have time to think about putting your look together.

So, if you follow me on instagram, you will know that I have been putting together outfits. It’s called “Plan Your Look” with Fancy Says Have A Ball. It’s a simple way to get inspired with clothes you already have in your closet. Just call me your “online stylist!” I love putting “looks” together, and even more so, if I am helping you, too. You’ll get a preview of each week’s outfits, if you follow me on instagram.

Some of the pieces I have owned for many years, and some I have just added to my closet. It’s fun to mix the old with the new, and it’s even better when it something all new! Every week, I plan to post several of my “plan your looks” on the blog. It might help you on those days where you want to look your best, but can’t see past getting your first cup of coffee in hand, and your long to-do list.

I plan to include outfits for any occasion you may have to attend. Whether it’s for work, church, a play date, a girls night out, or a date night. My hope is that you can find inspiration to go back and “shop” in your closet, and get ready with confidence!

 Look 1

This look would be great for a date night, church, or a night out with your girls! You could add a blazer to it, and a pair of flats to make it a work look.

Look 2

This would be great for work, church, or a date night. Change out the tote for a clutch at night. An all black outfit is so chic, no matter what the occasion.

Look 3
If your office has “casual” Fridays, this would be cute for work. It’s also a great look for the weekend, running errands, brunch, play dates or a movie date night.

Look 4
This look is perfect for work, a date night or girls night out.

Look 5
Another great look for work (you could add a cardigan or blazer), a cookout, a date night, brunch or even a play date.

Look 6
Perfect for running errands, a play date or brunch.

Look 7

A dress is so simple to dress up or down. The flats make it perfect for work or a play date. Add heels, and it’s a casual date night look.

I hope y’all found this helpful. I now have no excuse for the next week to say “I have nothing to wear!”
