Cobalt Blue Bow Dress, and I HAVE A NEW NEPHEW!

When I got the latest J. Crew catalog a few months ago, I spied this cobalt blue stunner. The bows, the color and the shape of the dress were all 10/10 for me! I can't bring myself to pay full price for anything, really, so I knew it would be a waiting game. Fast forward a couple months, and the fam and I were shopping in Florida. We stopped at J. Crew, and this dress was 30% off! Horray! Of course, there were none in my size. I was bummed, but the salesperson encouraged me to try on the 4. Well, I am really glad I did! This dress runs a little big, as I am not typically a 4 (especially in a sheath dress), so keep that in mind!  It is on sale currently for 40% off $109! About $60 ish dollars for a classic dress. It also comes in black! 

Note: not my drums, HAHA!

Those bows!

Isn't this color just so vibrant?

I paired this dress with my favorite blue crystal-cluster earrings, also from J. Crew, compliments of my friend, Jackie!

I went with silver jewelry and my silver Michael Kors watch with this bright blue hue.

I get so many compliments on these bow Nine West pumps!
I wore them for my friend Fran's wedding, and they were extremely comfortable!
Wait: the best part-- they are currently under $40 on 6pm.com! I paid full price for these beauties a couple years ago because I was desperate for a black pump and fast. However, they're WORTH EVERY CENT!

Now the best part: Finn Patrick! 

I am so in love. My nephew is just perfect.
Bar coordinates necklace: Lat and Lo. I just purchased this necklace with our address on it! The inscription on the back says, "our first home"! What an amazing gift to give someone (or yourself!). Check out http://www.latandlo.com/ for more fabulous personalized pieces!

He's smiling!

My sister looking amazing after giving birth!
Finn was born on April 22 at 4:40 am. He weighed 7 lbs. 6 oz.
