Tennis Dress Love + an OOTD + Giveaway Winners + Tocca Giveaway

Happy First Day of Spring!  I hope y’all had a great weekend!  The weather was pretty wishy-washy here, so every time the sun popped out, we were outside.  How sweet is this little pup?  Wish it was ours, but at least we got to snuggle with her for a little while.  Can’t wait to share more of what we’ve been up to lately on this week’s Wednesday Whereabouts post. // This striped top is still a favorite!

So I’ve never been a huge tennis dress lover…until now.  When I tried the green one on a few weeks, I was so excited how well it fit.  Loved it so much that I ordered it in the white/coral one above.  This pic above was taken right after I finished my last match of the season, I ended up being undefeated!  Some of you asked what I wore underneath.  I wear this bra and these shorts.

This tennis dress recently came out too, and I of course added it to my wishlist!  Love the springy colors!

My water bottle is currently on sale!

Ruffle Sneakers // Shorts

I’ve been eyeing these tennis shoes for a little while now, and finally decided to order them.  Just love how crisp and clean they are, and the ruffles are the cutest touch.  And they’re honestly just as comfortable as they look.  These are fun to wear around, as well as play tennis in.  I’m breaking them in tomorrow morning.  I’ll let you know how it goes!  For fit, I’m an 8.5 and wear an 8 in them.

Some of you were saying you were sad that my platform wedges are sold out at Nordstrom.  I’ll let you know if they restock them, but for the time being, they’re also available here and here. // Floral Romper // Crossbody

Kids were all well enough, so we headed to church on Sunday!  The girls are still loving these dresses.  It’s so nice that they’ve pretty much been the same size, so they can share everything.  Effie was excited to have her turn wearing the green and pink one, and Wheeler loved her seagull one. // Sunnies // Dress

This pic cracked me up from last night!  South Carolina played Duke following Carolina’s win last night.  There’s rarely a time when Carolina cheers for South Carolina, but we sure were last night!  So excited about their win, defeating the Blue Devils!

If you’re in search of a white sleeveless top, I love this one!  I have it in a few prints, but decided to go ahead and order the white too.  For fit, it does run a little small so I sized up to a medium. // My light blue necklace (perfect for you Carolina fans) is on sale for $29.99! // Grey Shorts // Clutch // Sandals
