Cobalt & Bows

Who's excited for Easter weekend?

This girl! Today is the first day I've had off since I started my "real girl job" and I couldn't be happier to spend it at home with my parents and brother. I went to Jazzercise this morning, got coffee with the girls and made a healthy lunch for my family. Soaking up time at home is exactly what I needed.

And know what else I needed?

This cobalt blue dress from {Fashion Forward Boutique}. Yes, the color is gorgeous, and so is the length and the flowy fabric, but can we please check out the back of this dress?

I'm a sucker for bows and I'm a sucker for pretty backs.

Thus, this dress is pretty much to-die-for in my book.

I'm in love.

What I'm wearing:

What are everyone's plans for Easter? My family always goes to church and then heads to my Gramma's house for Easter brunch. I'm spending tomorrow in the kitchen with momma baking up some goodies!

Love, Cait

Why I've been a bad blogger

Sorry friends, I've been such a bad blogger this past week! To be truthful, I didn't have a very good week and wasn't really feeling like myself. I think it might have had something to do with the weather - when it's cold and rainy outside I can't seem to get motivated to do anything. I can't wait for the sunshine to come out again!!

So to pull myself out of a slump, here's what I've been doing:

Dressing in bright colors

{J.Crew striped popover} - thanks AJ for the link!

This bright shirt makes me SO happy. It's so comfortable and I can't wait to wear it with shorts in the summertime.

Here's another outfit from the week that made me happy:

{chevron tee}{chain link necklace}{Kate Spade watch}{chain bracelet}{turquoise studs}

Wearing sparkly jewels

I'm obsessed with this {necklace} from Red Dress Boutique! I love the rhinestones and the fact that it's Carolina blue ;)

Taking a trip to Target

Yep, it's true. Going to Target always makes me happy! I found this {french tee} at Target earlier today and just couldn't resist. I have been looking for a tee with French writing on it (is that weird?) and I love how comfy this one is! The back is completely sheer, which adds an element of chic-ness. I can't wait to wear it!

Sunless tanning

That's right, babes. If the sun won't come to me, then I'll come to the sun. Jergen's Natural Glow daily moisturize works wonders!

If you're worried about a funky smell... don't be. They just re-did the product and there is no smell!

So sorry for being M.I.A. this week. I have some fun posts planned for this week, though! Look out for a clean eating post and one featuring my newest sponsor {Fash Foward Boutique}.

Hope you all are having wonderful Sundays!!

Life Lately.

Hi friends,

I haven't had much time this week to plan posts, so here are some updates from my life lately :)

What I'm wearing:

Lately I love any shirts with pretty backs, so when I saw this shirt at Vestique I immediately knew I had to have it! 
I just loooove the bow back!

Can't forget about the arm party. My Stella & Dot look-alike bracelet came in the mail this past week and I'm obsessed! I bought it from {Groopdealz} and it looks and feels incredibly high quality. So impressed.

What I'm buying:

I just ordered {this gorgeous necklace} from Red Dress Boutique. 

And snagged some matching Essie nail polish in {bikini so teeny} at Target!

What I'm eating:

This {tomato mozzarella egg white omelet} topped with spinach has been my breakfast this whole week. It's so filling and SO delicious, and incredibly healthy. This is apart of my {clean eating} diet I've been following lately. With summer coming up, I've upped my workouts and have been paying attention to what I've been putting in my mouth! In the process, I've discovered all sorts of tasty snacks and meals that are super healthy. If anyone is interested in a healthy eats post, I can definitely put one together!

What I'm drinking:

So this probably doesn't fit into the "clean eating" category, but I just couldn't resist. When the weather starts warming up, I immediately start craving cool drinks. This light hazelnut frappuccino is the answer to my prayers! SO YUMMY.

What I'm pinning:

Pretty interiors, like these...

What I'm writing:

Big news... My first post for Skimbaco went live on Tuesday!

Hope everyone is having a good week!!

Look-Alikes + a Winner!

Hello loves!

Here's a little deal to brighten up your Monday morning. :)

I went to Target over the weekend to pick up a few items for an upcoming post (details coming soon) when I spotted these gorgeous stud earrings for $7.99 each! They reminded me SO much of the Kate Spade studs that I just had to get a couple.

Don't they look incredibly similar to the Kate Spade pairs shown above? (With a much better price tag?) 

I couldn't find these earrings on the Target website, so go get your tush there now! They come in a lot of different colors, even neons (!), and they're all gorgeous. Pssst, you should also pick up {this pretty necklace} while you're there.

And now, for the winner of the Foxy Lady Bangle giveaway... 
Chelsea Webb, who blogs over at {Sweet Peach Couture}!

Congratulations Chelsea. Check your email!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to the week. I've got a busy day ahead, and I'm hoping it passes quickly so I can watch the Bachelor finale tonight. Who will be watching?

Love, Cait

Favorite Instagrammers

Hi bebes!

So if you're anything like me, you're slightly obsessed with instagram. Yep, I admit it - I'm an instagram addict. I love scrolling through pictures of my favorite fashionistas and getting inspiration for my own closet. I also love how you can follow people in different cities and countries and get a feel for their life, which may be completely different than your own. 

I thought I would share a few of my favorite instagrammers today. I have a lot of favorites, but here are my top five... I seriously swoon over everything they post!

1. @jscott24

This chick seriously has the best style ever! I love how this Florida gal wears pops of colors and sparkly jewels, and is a self-proclaimed J.Crew addict. Not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous and has the most perfect hair ever.

2. @mrsstrock

Abigail Strock is a Stella & Dot senior stylist, so many of her fabulous jewels feature Stella & Dot. Her style is impeccable and she has a knack for playing with patterns and colors and coming up with fabulous combinations.

3. @mackenziehoran

If you love monograms and cute pups, Mackenzie Horan is the one to follow. She owns the online boutique {design darling} and is constantly posting her new, cutest products. With her preppy, stylish outfit posts and her adorable puppy, she documents her life in NYC daily.

4. @greyandscout

Liz Bachman is an interior designer and stylist who blogs over at {grey and scout}. I have seriously never seen a more amazing house than hers! She is constantly taking pictures of interior design, her fabulous bar cart, her cute dog, or some concoction that she's whipped up in the kitchen. Her pictures are always light and clean and never fail to make me happy.

5. @whitneyspinelli

I think Whitney is addicted to J.Crew as much as I am! I would seriously LOVE to raid this girl's closet. Her necklaces are all amazing and she has layering down to an art. Her style is complete perfection.

Well babes, these are just a few of my favorites! There are so many talented people out there with awesome instagram accounts. Please tell me your favorite instagrammer in the comments below - I'm always on the lookout for some inspiration! ;) 

And if you don't follow me, my instagram username is @cmcoving.

Love, Cait

A Foxy Giveaway

Hey babes!

I've got a treat for you today, and it has to do with this gorgeous {foxy lady bangle} below.

When my friend {Beth} tweeted at me about this bangle from {Sugar Boutique}, I knew I had to order one asap! I had SUCH a hard time picking out a color. In the end I decided to go with the black since I can wear it with anything. I was super happy with my decision when this baby showed up on my doorstep - isn't it incredibly classy?

In addition, the sweet ladies at Sugar Boutique sent me hand-written note and another bangle to give away on my blog!

The navy is SO gorgeous and I'm so excited to send it to one of my blog readers! How amazing will it look with a tan?

To enter the contest, just use the widget below. The contest will end one week from today, on Sunday, March 10th.

Good luck!!

Pssst! If you want to go ahead and order one for yourself, I say go for it!!! You can order one, or five, {here}! I want one in every color, but especially the mint.

Love, Cait
