There's been a lot of changes in the Lulu house over the last year.  My hubs took a job last year with a large consulting company working from home.  THAT was a big change with both good and bad points...  He's a very social guy and spending so much time at home without any people interaction (with the exception of me and the kids) wasn't good for him.  So now he's with a new company and traveling!  Big change from being at home all the time.  For the last two weeks he's been gone and it's been me and the nuggets.  So handling everything has been difficult and exhausting.  If I've been a little MIA on social media and the blog this is why!  It's really been catching up to me because I've been very forgetful, which only happens when I have too many things on my plate.  I have a memory of to-dos that is like a hawk.  So I'm trying to keep it together for the next few weeks.  Forgive me lovely readers if I seem a little crazy :)

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------


Hello Monday!  What a weekend we had at the Lulu house.  The nuggets had a ball jumping up and down with a new toy that is taking up a fair bit of room in our backyard.  Any guesses?  :)  Sunday was church, lunch, and a hike.  The day was gorgeous and I was so happy to spend it with my little family.

Today is about a summer dress and bright colors.   I purchased this dress (unfortunately the blue is sold out, similar here) from Old Navy a few weeks ago, but it really has been too cold to wear it.  Even this day a jacket was necessary.  I chose this light blue denim jacket from J.Crew because I wanted to keep the look cool and casual.  To lengthen the leg I kept the heels "barely there" with a nude heel.  These Aquazzura are a favorite of mine and I had my eye on them since last summer (I got them on sale at Shopbop!).  These fringe nude heels are also amazing!

Get this look here!



Thanks for popping by.  Have a great day!

Happy Wednesday and Earth Day!  Today is the 45th Earth Day!  Since honestly I didn't know much about Earth Day I looked up some information.  Started in 1970, officially by Gaylord Nelson, it lead to the creation of the United States Environment Protection Agency.  There are many more interesting notes and information about Earth Day that you can read HERE.

Over the weekend we had some stellar weather and a picnic was in order.  We packed up our lunch and bikes and headed to the park.  Our lunch was served on these fantastic Repurpose paper plates, bowls, and cups.  Repurpose is committed in creating dinnerware that is made exclusively from plants which are annually-renewable resources.  Their pieces are BPA, chlorine, and petroleum free.  It can stand up to 200 degree (F) and the cutlery is basically unbreakable (my husband tried...).  Read more about the Repurpose story HERE.   Buy your Repurpose products below for all your summer get togethers.  Your family and the earth will thank you :)



Thanks for popping by, have a wonderful Wednesday!

Today I'm sharing my favorite spring top (I'm loving the sweet persimmon color too!) that I purchased at J.Crew (who is having an awesome sale right now!) a little while ago.  It's so versatile to dress up or down.  So I will be sharing 2 looks, one today and Friday - so stay tuned!  Another fun accessory...ish I've been playing with is pom poms.  I wore this top on Friday and today I'm a having a little pom pom fun with my scarf.  Crazy enough I've had this scarf for quite a while and don't exactly remember where I purchased it.  But I found a similar scarf and I'm so loving this white pom pom scarf and this one for under $17!

Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day!
