  • Gimme Dat List | March

    "He will come to us like the rain." -Hosea 6:3

    Spring is almost here, friends. (cue applause) I love this verse in Hosea and it always reminds me of spring. Even though it can get sloppy outside, I'm thankful for the slop this time of year. It means things are melting and coming to life and the greens are getting greener - hence, the rain. Praise Him for rain being rain and not snow, y'all... hallelu!

    With that, I have some fun things shown below that are currently on my "Ooh, I would love to have that!" list for March. I'm really vibing botanicals, florals, gold (ok, this is year round), marble (oops, yeah, year round love there), sandals, lightweight fabrics, and brights and whites. 

    I'm currently in the market for a new phone case, which is quite a decision. I'm not one to swap these out to match my outfit. I'm more of a one and done (until it breaks) type of girl in this department. And thus, my case recently broke and here I stand. So, I'm digging this cute pineapple one. Too summery? Maybe. Does that matter? Not really. TBD here.

    Regarding the clip board... that might be one you're scraching your head over. Um, why do I need a clip board? Well, I like using them as wall art to highlight a photo or drawing rather than using a frame. Ahhhh, it's all making sense now, eh? I want to get some botanical prints and get four of these to make a little mini gallery. Cute, don't you think?

    The other item I want to highlight is the set of cord tacos... WHAT! How genius/hilarious are these you guys?! I randomly stumbled upon them on the Free People website - bahahaha. R-A-N-D-O-M. So I don't know about you guys, but I have borderline OCD tendencies with certain things in my life. One of them: cords. Seeing cords dangling or having cords unkept in a "junk drawer" makes my skin crawl. Right now, our TV has two cords that hang below it that aren't covered by the console table under it. Literally I'm annoyed every time I see it, but since we are likely moving soon, I don't want to go to extreme measures to cover them - UGHHH. So, here comes the cord tacos. Tuck these around headphones, phone chargers, etc. in your purse, in a *neat* junk drawer in your home, in your car's center console - wherever. These are a fabulous invention! Plus, the cognac color leather is divine. Thanks Free Peeps!

  • Gimme Dat List | January

    I'm back! I've been on a hiatus from Pride & Joyce, as you may have noticed. Why? My absence is partially attributed to lack of motivation, time, inspiration and feeling short on creativity - which has been really hard. I've never felt so uninspired in my life, you guys! I hate it so much. I've been having talks with God, asking Him why I feel like this and how I can "get back to normal." Should I just quit? Should I embrace that I'm not going to be the next Joanna Gaines or Joy Cho and just give up? I don't think quitting is the answer - who quits as soon as something isn't easy? Cowards! I don't want to be lumped into that category. Woof. But I also don't want to be thought of as a failure. Ugh, that word is the worst. It hurts to type it. So, I've been trying to figure out why I'm feeling this way and how to get out of my rut. 2016 has been very introspective thus far, which is something I really struggle with - I get frustrated. It's a lot easier for me to figure other people out than myself - I'm so complicated! Yikes, my poor husband. However, I'm not going to let my FEELINGS stop me from doing something I've wanted to accomplish and share with the world - this blog. So, despite how I'm "feeling", I'm still here and I still want to share my opinions, likes, wants, rants and pretty things I find with you all. I've allowed my feelings to rule for the last four (almost five - gulp) months and enough is enough! 

    So without further adieu, here is my current "Want List" or as I lovingly call them - my monthly "Gimme Dat List". It consists of some wardrobe staples (and a faux plant I really want! ha) and features some of my favorite brands/stores: Athleta (a.k.a. my favorite place on the planet), Lululemon (not the biggest fan of all their stuff, but their headbands and yoga mats have no equal), Target, Madewell, Nordstrom, Baublebar, Steve Madden, Essie... etc. (Side Note: The floral dress and skinny boyfriend jeans are a part of the new collab that Target has with WhoWhatWear, releasing in stores on January 31! Nothing in the collection is over $49.95... yeah. AMAZE. I've linked to the entire lookbook below.)

    How is your 2016? Can you relate to my feeling frenzy? Anything you're eyeing at the moment? SHARE below!

    #1 / #2 / #3 / #4 / #5 / #6 / #7 / #8 / #9 / #10 / #11 "Bordeaux" / #12 "Chili"

    It feels good to be back - love you all!

  • Gimme Dat List | March 2015

    Spring is almost here, you guys! {Hallelujah chorus} The sun is shining, the nasty snow along the curbs is gone. GRASS, yes GRASS, is starting to change from brown to green and the sky has changed back to blue from the constant grayish white that winter dooms us with each year. 

    People have come out of hibernation and are walking, running, biking, rollerblading... you name it! Sigh... life is back. Each winter feels like I'm holding my breath until now. 

    Anyway... in anticipation of spring, and dare I say, SUMMER, here are some of my current "wants" - do you notice a vibe? I'm ga-ga over florals right now. CANNOT wait for Target's Lilly Pulitzer line launching April 19... it's in my calendar, don't worry.

    Here's my March 2015 Gimme Dat List:

    tote / jeans / earrings / sandals / sunglasses / swimsuit: top, bottom / leggings / blazer / tank

    Are you swooning over anything lately? Drop me a line!
