Mint Bird Print Dress

Posted by Tara


I have to confess that mint is my favorite color. My purse is that color, my phone case is that color and I have lots of shirts in this color. I am definitely smitten! When I saw this dress at DownEast Basics, I had to have it! It screamed SPRING to me!


The print on this dress are tiny little birds. It's busy with the right amount of color. I used the colors from the birds to pick out my long cardigan. 


With the busy fabric I chose a simple necklace. I always love using my bow tie necklace, it's dainty and clean. I paired this outfit with my gold flats. The exposed zipper gives the dress a perfect touch!



What a fun outfit this was! I hope you love it as much as I do. Be sure to follow my Fashion Board on Pinterest

What I Wore:
Dress: Downeast
Cardigan: Downeast
Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: Target

Donut Teacher Appreciation Printables

Posted by Devin


Teacher appreciation is coming up for us next week and I always love the opportunity to tell my boys' teachers how wonderful we think they are! Unfortunately, I don't always have a ton of time (or money) to put something as fabulous as I would like together for them, but a simple treat with a cute tag always seems like a nice way to express our appreciation. 

This year I was looking around the bakery area in Walmart when I spotted 12, 4-packs of mini donuts for $3. Yep, three bucks for 48 mini donuts. That's a pretty good deal! So I snagged a few boxes and decided to not only make them for my boys' teachers, but also for my husband's employees as it is employee appreciation week right now as well. I went home and quickly created these printables and I was ready to go!


You can simply tape or tie these tags onto the individual packages of mini donuts or put them on a mason jar filled with donuts like I did! To print these donut tags you can click here or on the image below.

Workout Clothes with Athleta

Posted by Devin


Tara and I recently had the opportunity to partner up with Athleta for a Girl's Night Out with our friends at Athleta's Scottdale location in Kierland Commons. It was a really fun evening of mingling and enjoying time with the girls while, of course, trying on clothes! As women who try to stay active, we love comfortable and stylish clothing to work out in. After all, some days we never manage to get changed out of it! So today we thought we would feature two of the outfits we brought home with us from Athleta.

Devin's Pick


I chose a pleated, gray tennis skirt and a bright coral top. Let's start with the skirt. It's awesome. I love the pleated design; it is extremely feminine but also sporty and perfect for running around on the tennis court. It has a zippered pocket in the back where you can store balls and built-in shorts with rubber-type bands around the bottom of the legs to keep them in place while you're playing. No riding, wedgies, adjusting every five seconds... everything stays where it should and feels great!


The top is equally awesome. I obviously love the color (coral is a personal favorite of mine, although I think they call it ember orange) but the cut and style are great as well. The sleeves are the perfect length to prevent any restrictions to my movement and the back also has a zippered pocket. The zipper on the front is super cute and let's me put the shirt on and take it off without messing up my hair. ;) Things only a girl would think about... I'm super excited to hit the court this season with these new additions to my workout gear! 


Tara's Picks


One thing I saw a lot of while walking around the Athleta store was bright colored workout clothes. I couldn't resist getting workout attire with a pop of color! I first grabbed these capri's and fell in love with the fabric and how they fit. 

I have always been smitten with the color mint, so when I saw this tank, I immediately knew I was going to get it. Not only does it match really well with these pants, but also a lot of my other workout pants. I love how the sides and back are their Power Mesh material. Makes for a cooler workout.


The back of the tank top has a fun detail with crossed straps. Workout clothes from Athelta literally make me want to head to the gym everyday so everyone can see them!
