Leopard and Ruffles and stripes, OH MY!

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 3:30 AM

Good Morning! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 
Mine was packed, I had a fundraiser Friday evening, a football event Saturday and I did some Spring cleaning Sunday afternoon.  Friday's fundraiser was for circle of Hope, in which my sister in-law danced in a local dancing with the stars. In the months leading up to the dance event each of the 6 dancers had to fund raise holding separate events, the collectively raised $184,000!! 
I was so impressed by their commitment to both raising money as well as the dedication to learning and rehearsing their dances.  They were all so amazing! 

The weather here still refuses to accept it is spring, however Mother Nature might get the memo by the end of the week with temps soaring into the 70s! 

When I saw this top I thought it was just darling, I mean, who doesn't love stripes?  The ruffles, too cute!  I loved it paired with jeans for this time of year, layered with a light jacket and you're ready to go! 

How has the beginning of your spring been? 

xx, Elise
