Saturday Shopping

What is everyone up to this weekend? I only have my apartment for a few more days and my fiancé only has his house for a few more days so we are in the last home stretch of moving! Movers officially come on Monday and by then, I should be almost fully DONE!

I've had a few things delivered and I cannot wait to get things hung on the wall so it starts to feel like a home!

Tomorrow is Easter and we typically go to church and then my parents always host Easter and my extended family comes! It's lots of fun and lots of good food.

I've found a ton of good things this week- all over the place, but worth the browse!!

Easter Wishlist

Shop the Collage:

With Easter this Sunday, I thought it would be fun to share what I would want in my Easter basket if the Easter bunny was feeling very generous, ha! My parents actually gave me a basket up until about 26... I miss the baskets but I'm making one for Henry so that's still fun!

One of the products that I wanted to highlight is this peachy-pink concealer. When I was in Jamaica for the Draper James shoot, we had a makeup artist and she recommended using a peachy-hued concealer. I don't usually have dark circles, but within the past month with so much going on, my circles have been DARK! She said that the peachy pink color will help to neutralize the blue/purple tones in under eye circles and then you can add your own concealer over top. She did it on me and it totally erased any trace of dark circles.

I haven't ordered this product yet, but it's the next thing I'll be buying!

Shoes (now available online!!)

Oh my goodness, what a whirlwind of an April so far. This entire month has sped by and I have been the busiest I have ever been. Hence why I missed a post this week, which, in the 10 years of Summer Wind is a big rarity. That is when you know things are REALLY crazy.

Today I am spending all day working from the new house because I have some furniture being delivered and Comcast will come to set up cable/wifi and I'm so excited! We were planning on spending our first night at the new house on Friday but I just could not take my bare, sad-looking apartment any longer, so we had our first night last night. I actually felt like I was staying at a hotel because my bed was SO comfortable, ha!! The first night made it all feel so real and I'm just so excited for all that is to come!

I will finally have all of my furniture delivered on Monday. Crazy. It's been so weird to watch my apartment become bare and the new house starting to look so homey. Now, I cannot wait to close the door to my apartment and not have to deal with it any longer, ha!

I had my inaugural Costco trip this week and I'm obsessed. They have so much good stuff and the fact that I actually have a place to store more than a few rolls of toilet paper is such a luxury to me. It's the little things, right?

Wearing: You saw the second photo already this week but I wanted to share a second photo of how you can wear this white dress in two very similar ways, but one is for cooler spring weather and the other is for summer weather! The dress is not see through so I do not wear a slip underneath and it runs true to size. I could not recommend it more!

Eating: This recipe for french onion chicken meatballs sounds phenomenal! I'm a huge fan of French onion soup so this is right up my alley. 

Reading: Have you seen this coffee and cream chart? It's too funny! I'm definitely an f-6... what are you? 

Sale-ing: Ralph Lauren is having a 30% off sale, use code FAMILY. Love these jeans, this color blocked puffer,  I have this incredible cashmere cable cardigan. Also, my favorite cable cashmere sweaters are included in the sale. It's a rarity that they go on sale! My other tip is that if you wear a size small in women's clothing, usually a size Large or XL in boys will work so you can snag this cashmere cable sweater for a lot less! 

 The Big Little Lies season 2 trailer is out now. I cannot wait!

Loving: I just got this gorgeous blue and white maxi dress in the mail and I am so in love. I cannot wait to wear it!

Wanting: Does anyone have this iPhone case? I think I want to get it for my iPhone XS Max! On a completely unrelated note, I love love love hot dogs. I don't eat them that often because they are bad for you, however, these sauces are making me very excited for grilling hot dogs this summer... I'm just excited to have a grill, ha! Trader Joe's uncured organic grass-fed beef hot dogs are my absolute favorite- they are so flavorful. 

Pittsburgh-ing: Did you see the dates for the Arts fest have been announced? So excited- one of my favorite things about summer in Pittsburgh! 

Traveling: I mentioned this in Monday's post but we have a quick weekend getaway to Ohio wine country planned which will be fun and then we booked a Nantucket trip in June for my fiancĂ©'s 30th birthday!

Wedding Wednesday: White Dresses for Showers and Rehearsals

Today's post is a highly requested one! I know many of you are also brides-to-be and are looking for special white dresses to wear for all things wedding! 

I have always been a fan of white dresses and especially in the summer months. Luckily, right now you can find a lot of white dresses. I think if you are getting married later this year or early 2020, now is a good time to start looking because right now through about September are when white dresses are available in abundance!

Today I wanted to share some of my favorites! I'm including a lot of different brands as well as price points!
