My Instagram Life

I feel like it's been awhile since I've updated you on what's going on behind the scenes of this blog!  Instagram is of course my favorite way of documenting these things now, with nearly 1,400 photos in the year and a half I've been on it. Whoa! You can follow me at username @JackieofSPS for daily updates. 

Last Friday I wore a rose gold and gray combo out to dinner and really fell in love with the two together.  I mixed silver with rose gold jewelry to play off the theme, and found they mixed quite nicely.  Forever 21 sweater, old (similar), Target rose gold bracelets, XOXO watch (similar), Groop Dealz silver bracelet.

I hadn't made an etsy purchase in too long, and since I have a renewed vision for my home decor, this print was the perfect purchase. Meaning "Love, It's Everything ", plus I have a thing for black hearts and gold-no brainer!

A recent ootd. Gap henley, F21 skinnies, Old Navy Booties, old scarf (similar), XOXO watch (similar).

Shopping one of my favorite outlets, ella moss/ splendid.  They have amazing deals on great basics in the softest fabrics.  You can see Natalie's little head in the corner there browsing the racks! (BTW, Nat will be 7 this weekend which totally boggles my mind. She was a month shy of 2 years old when I started this blog!)

Another recent ootd I wore out to an afternoon at the wine bar.  H&M sweater (similar), F21 Skinnies, H&M booties (similar), London Fog bag.  The bag is a recent purchase and I am obsessed!  It was my color of the year purchase.

I mentioned in my resolutions post that I wanted to start entertaining more, without stressing out or feeling like I had to go over the top.  Over the weekend I threw my first happy hour of the year, and I kept is super simple.  I made a few appetizers (this one and this one), both were a hit! We had wine and Skinny Girl Margaritas (we are all watching our figure) and it was so much fun. Can't wait to throw one again next month.

I am adamant about getting new floors this year.  We have been in our home since 2004 and with two kids  since then, our carpet is just done.  My husband finally agreed to trying to put them in himself with the help of his dad, so it is full steam ahead!  Tested out some samples yesterday and I think I have a winner-the one on the left!

New gym shoes to help keep me motivated.  A little neon goes a long way!

Simple pleasures: a People Stylewatch and a pretty necklace form Target. This was a crazy 90% off, making it only $2.99!
