Thoughts and Whatnots 5.8.16

Aqua pencil skirt:  one  |  two  |  three

Blog Love:
  • I've loved Nicole's Derby Days series, and I'm swooning over her final, stunning pink look!
  • Love how Fran styled this polka dot shift dress! I recently snagged it myself, but it needs a trip to the seamstress first - for a little side slimming and hem-let-down - before it makes an appearance on the blog. I think it's going to be perfect for the summer. :)
  • I've been jonesing for a good DIY, and Anne's cork burst looks like such fun! Guess that means I need to drink more wine - for the corks - right?

On Teal and Polka Dots:

Favorite Sales:

  • What I'm reading: I enjoyed What Alice Forgot so much, I picked up The Husband's Secret to read next!
  • What I'm watching: Still watching reruns of the Office, but have Young and Hungry season 3 and the second season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in the queue.
  • What I'm crushing on: Is it weird that I kinda want this aqua KitchenAid mixer? I don't even cook that much - but I do love to bake - so all those future batches of cookies need it, right?
  • What I'm looking forward to: Happy Mother's Day to all the mommas out there! I hope you have a lovely day full of pampering and family.


  1. I absolutely love the color of this skirt on you Erin! Hope you have a great Mother's Day!

    1. Thanks Nicole! And thanks for the blog love on Friday. I tried to comment on your post, but it kept kicking me out. Hopefully you didn't get a bunch of repeat comments from me...

  2. Love your outfits here! I just got a gingham dress and am debating whether it should be returned or go to the tailor to shorten the shoulders.

    I have that exact aqua KichenAid mixer and love it! It's not like I "needed" it - I was used to mixing by hand - but it certainly does make baking much smoother and I love to bake.

    1. That's the worse...keep and go through the hassle of fixing, or return and look for something that works off the hanger?

      I think that mixer is definitely going to have to go on my's just so pretty!

  3. You've given me so many good suggestions for ways to wear this skirt! I bought it when you first posted about it because I knew I'd love it too :) I wore it to work yesterday and felt fabulous all day!

    1. Yay! I'm so glad you like it! I'm always so nervous when someone orders something I wore because I'm afraid though I love it, they'll hate it and think I was nuts for recommending it. :)
