I know, I know it's been too long since I blogged. Life got a tad bit busy these last couple weeks!
Easter coming up, cleaning out the house, family time. You get the picture. I'm hoping I can get back in the swing of things soon enough. The sun is starting to creep out a bit more. The snow is melting! Spring is coming! That means lots of exciting things. No snow is exciting enough as it is. Spring Fashion is another one too! So stay tuned!!

Here's a little bit of what I've been up to lately. I started an instagram follow me@meadowsandreeds

{Fashion Friday} Edgy-Casual

It's almost spring time and I've been cleaning out my closet. I've been getting rid of tons of clothes that I don't really wear anymore and it feels great! Maybe I'm just weird but I love not being wasteful. Even after I finish off a box of cereal or the milk and throw the container away. I get a smile on my face, because I used the entire thing. My closet is no different, or the basement. I don't like "excess" whatsoever. I feel like it's overwhelming to have too much stuff! Especially being in the military and you are constantly moving every few years. I can't keep carting around stuff that doesn't get used to each new house. So we've been going through the basement, throwing away tons of stuff, selling stuff, donating stuff. Pretty soon it will be a nice beautifully organized basement of only the necessities. So it's about time for that spring cleaning. Go through that old stuff you don't want anymore. Try to have a yard/garage sale go to consignment stores. Donate to the goodwill, salvation army or local organizations. If you do make any money put it on a jar and label it "Summer fun" lol that way you can do something fun, maybe with your family this year. It's time for some change...get rid of the clutter! 

Have a good weekend everyone!

{Fashion} Special occasions=special outfits :)

Perfect ending to an awesome family weekend. After a really bad case of cabin fever I was desperate to get out of the house and do something. So Saturday came and I decided it was time for a visit to the children's museum in Boston! Riley of course had a blast, even though that place is packed and you could easily lose a kid in there! Then we had lunch at a local place where Riley won a little award from Awanas for making it to the halfway mark. Sunday we had church and attempted to go to Hobby Lobby but forgot it was closed on Sundays..{fail} so we ate some lunch and then came home and caught one of those ridiculous squirrels that have been plaguing our attic for months now!
Then this morning we had the pleasure of having the husband's promotion ceremony. It was very simple and quaint not what we are used to. But Riley and I got to be more involved this time. Riley took off his old rank off of his uniform and I put on his new one! We are so proud of him and it's always nice to hear people such nice things about my man! I love him so much! He's such a stud.

So special moment for us deserved a special outfit in my opinion. I was glad it was in the 50's and sunny today so I got to wear my new skirt. The skirt definitely makes an impression! :) The week is looking good. We are one happy little family!

{Fashion}..casual maxi

Right when I think we are home free from this snow. It dumps like 3-5 inches on us and is continuing to dump! { I seriously can't wait to be blogging about something other than the snow and how it puts a damper on plans}  Definitely missing California right about now. 
The beaches, the sun, the relaxation! Maybe I just need a little vacation already. As well as a tan this little puerto rican is looking a bit white these days! Yes Puerto Rican! That may be news to some. I'm only half though! Since we have a snow day and no school today. I have to think of some indoor activities for the little munchkin to do!

Thought I would do as I set out to do and add a bit more color to my wardrobe! With a pop of Red! Red is one of my fave colors so I don't know why I wouldn't have more of it. I guess add that to my wishlist!
Happy Friday!

{Fashion} Neutrals

As promised a few more fashion posts this week! It's been hard to get out and take pictures when everything is covered in snow. Even as I tried to take these pictures outside it started to rain! Of course so I had to move it inside!Who said you can't wear black, gray with brown? I do have a lot of dark neutrals in my closet. I can't help it! I usually gravitate more towards blacks then bright colors. I've tried to remedy this recently. I intend to do more as Spring and Summer start to arrive. Because I can't take much more of this snow! I can't wait to get out there and wear shorts again! I am a little obsessed with leggings these days. They are just more comfortable then jeans lately. Luckily they have more options for leggings these days.

{Secret Confessions}

I have a secret confession to make. I'm in love with the idea of flipping houses. Finding something so ugly and making it something so beautiful. I could sit and watch "Flip this house" for hours! Maybe it's that whole make over thing maybe. But I love interior design so much! I picture myself one day starting a little flipping business. Running around looking for junky old houses and gutting it and making everything pretty and sparkly. Wishful thinking I guess. You never know it could happen someday!

Another secret confession is that I have a little crush on vintage cars. It's hard to say where I started falling in love with them. Maybe I get it from my mom or something. I've just always loved old vintage cars and I love that people restore them. Anything old and vintage I like I guess. I'm an old soul maybe I was born in the wrong time! I recently did a little photo shoot with a friend of mine in Colorado Springs at a junkyard just filled with old cars. You can check out more photos here!

What are some of your secret confessions?

{Fashion Friday}.......Spring

They say snow. Yet it doesn't snow! I'm beginning to think the weatherman is a liar! 
I'm so ready for Spring! It's very short lived here then it gets muggy and hot. What are your fave things for Spring!
I found this fancy blazer/cardi combining my two fave things. Lace and Floral print! Spring always reminds me of everything floral, light and airy, feminine and peaceful.

On A side note: Why does every house have a black hole? I lose so many things all the time! Where do they go. You're missing clothes when you did all the laundry. Missing things from your purse that you dumped out over and over and you never take it out of your purse. I just don't get it! Maybe it's those stinking squirrels. Determined to drive me NUTS! {No Pun intended}

Have a good weekend everyone!!
