So March was… in like… something and out like probably the same thing (a mess) because the freaking weather has taken us all on such an emotional roller coaster. But April showers bring May flowers and now I’m giggling to myself because next April, Kendall and I will be celebrating our wedding at The Mayflower and how perfect is that? April is a special time of year for my family. My mom’s birthday is April 9th, as is my parents’ anniversary (celebrating 29 years this year WHATUP!) and my Uncle Jay and Aunt Jeanie happened to pick the same date for their own wedding 6 years later! Lots of love, lots to celebrate in April!

It’s also usually the first month of the year to really feel like spring! As much as I love getting into the winter cozies, I’m over it. Bring on the sunshine. And in that vein, I bring you my April wish list.

the carolove april wish list

  1. I’m kind of digging this Cupshe Melodic Blues One-piece Swimsuit. Has anyone ordered from Cupshe before? Thoughts?
  2. Last year, Target had this amazing straw tote with pompoms that I really wanted… until I got to the store and it was big enough I could have put a couple toddlers or a weeks worth of clothes in it. The Rainbow Pom Pom Tote from t+j is a much better size AND I love the colors!
  3. I found the Women’s Wildfox More Glitter Manchester Tee last Friday when I was super sad that our CFO was retiring. “More glitter, less bitter” is the best sad day mantra.
  4. I’m still determined to try rainbow highlighter, and at under $10, I won’t mind this little purchase once Lent is over!
  5. This is one of the cutest collabs I’ve seen! If you can’t pick just one color, the Clinique Crayola(TM) Chubby Lip Crayon Box is just the thing for you!
  6. I love my nude studded heels, but they’ve been about run into the ground. Yay for
    Betseyville Naveah Gladiator Sandals and their under $50 price point!
  7. Not going to lie, part of the appeal of the Shashi Caroline Necklace is the name. But I also obviously love the style!
  8. I keep going back to these Rachelle Tassel Chandeliers from Stella & Dot.
  9. Kendall + I kind of want to have a vintage picnic themed engagement photo shoot, but for a real picnic, the ban.do Watermelon Super Chill Cooler Bag is the cutest!
  10. Yes, I’m obsessed with going to Mission for margs with my girls. The Margaritas With My Senoritas Crewneck from Tees And Tank You seems appropriate.
  11. We’ve burned through almost all of the Christmas clearance candles I stockpiled, but it’s time for fresher scents anyway! Bring on the Mimosa Kiki&Me Tumbler Candle!
  12. Stripes. Always stripes. But it doesn’t hurt to have an unexpected detail like this Women’s J.crew Ruffle Sleeve Top.
  13. Candace and I never had jellies because my mom was smart and knew they were painful, sweaty, and not great for your feet. I got the adult version for a music festival a few years ago, and quickly learned that for myself. But the Kate Spade New York Fanley T-Strap Sandal seem like a great, slightly more grown up, option.
  14. Mint is a tricky color for me, but once I have a tan, here I come for this Pintucked Swing Blouse.

Remember last week or whenever how it got nice? And then it freaking SNOWED at the end of the week? And it wasn’t even nice snow it was gobs of slush. Gross. I was so ready for the week to end already and that was just the ice(ing) on the cake.

Anyway, I guessss it’s ok because it gave me a chance (maybe my last one of the season) to rock my Topshop from Nordstrom leopard fur coat (last seen here). I wanted to be both cozy and cute as I slid into the weekend and I think I got this.

Now, let’s talk weekend essentials. You know I love a good backpack, but the one I got last year was a little small. Hi gorgeous Eddie Borgo for Target Backpack in Thunder. The backpack so nice that my mom bought me the same one. And if you’re constantly on the go like me, you probably have a snack or two in your bag. When Myprotein asked if I could try some of their products, I jumped at the chance. I ordered Protein Cookies in white almond, Protein Chox in caramel nut, and their 100% peanuts peanut butter. I’ll be honest, the cookies were a little too almond-y for me, it was almost overpowering. And I could really taste whatever extra protein was in it. But the chox were great! They taste like a heartier snickers and are definitely better for your if you’re like me and have a 3:30 in the afternoon chocolate craving. The peanut butter? On apples, one of my favorite snacks/ deserts.

How do you get ready for the weekend?

This past weekend simultaneously seemed never-ending and entirely too short. Saturday was our Bubbles & Bloggers Barbie Brunch at Hawthorne, and it could not have been better! That will actually be a separate post tomorrow because it was so amazing- we had an absolute blast! Dani and I got there entirely too early to set up- not much actually had to be done thanks to the Hawthorne crew, so we set out to take some pictures before the rest of our party arrived.

I have been saving this sweater since late January (and now it’s on super sale) specifically for this brunch after spying it on McKenna Bleu. The neon pink is a little insane, but this may actually be the most cozy thing I own, and it definitely makes a statement. I actually was really proud of myself for organically pulling of a street style look. I feel like sometimes I want to, but it looks almost costume-y.

My street-style Barbie look was very Caroline at its root- just fun. I love playing with color (and a little glitter) so the theme, which admittedly I picked, was super fun to dress for. I hope everyone else thought so too, but judging by the outfits yesterday, all the ladies were game! I ordered my Bride hat the weekend after I got engaged. It came in on Friday and I was literally happy dancing around DC with it, super excited that it came in on time for the brunch. I will be shamelessly rocking it from now until forever.

Up until last year, I was a total princess brat about my birthday. With my Year Of Weddings, I just didn’t have the energy and I tried to skip it all together. Even so, I ended up with a low-key bottomless pizza brunch with some of my closest pals and a v silly trip to Mission and Mad Hatter.

It’s no secret that I have a deep and unending love for Mission’s happy hour. Since my birthday is the day before St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to go grab a drink there on the 17th to celebrate. A couple pitchers and a chorizo quesadilla later, we thought it would be brilliant to head down the block and split a Mad Hatter hat full o’ alcohol. I ended up wishing everyone a very happy Patrick De Queso and now I want to make it a tradition to head to my favorite Mexican spot on/ around my birthday/ St. Patrick’s Day. Makes sense, huh? Whatever.

This year, Mission and I are sharing a birthday party on the 16th. I’ll be working all day because it’s, like, on a Thursday, so no uber-cute St. Patrick’s Day gear for me. But if you’re doing something fun that weekend you probably need a fun top or a little something green so you don’t get pinched.

How ’bout this weather, huh? I’m currently putting this post together at 1:33PM on Wednesday and it’s 77 degrees and looks like  storm might hit in a little. There is also a chance of snow on Friday. WHAT?! And this is why everyone is sick and miserable.

Last Saturday, in the middle of my feeling pretty nasty, it was simply gorgeous out in the morning in DC. Because I wasn’t feeling so hot, I was actually extra warm and the thought of wearing much of anything was not appealing. Kendall was gearing up for his monthly trip to Mississippi for drill, and I was heading out to my meet my mom for lunch and light wedding planning. Of course I’m going to grab a good old Old Navy sundress and go from there. Urban Expressions had sent me a couple new pretty bangs to replace my broken Gia, and I couldn’t wait to take my Faith for a spin. The light blue + pink combo was giving me total rose quartz + serenity vibes. Of course my music-lovin’ self is adoring the guitar strap purse trend, and the studs make it even just a little bit edgier.

Something else I’m loving right now? I stepped from my silver to a lavender CELEB LUXURY VIRAL COLORWASH shampoo. It’s definitely more bold, but I love that it goes in and out of my hair so easily. In couple washes with “normal” shampoo, I can be back to blonde. I’m just having fun with it. I kind of like my unicorn/ fairy/ troll/ whatever hair, and I’ve been getting compliments from just about everyone but Mama D who I think is having flashbacks to when I was Avril Lavigne for several months in college. If you want to try it yourself in a more contained way, DCists can hop over to Illusions and get some fun color up in that hurr professionally. My DC stylist, Amanda, has me hooked!What do you think about it, honestly?
