I hope everyone has a very happy Mother's Day! My babies aka my cats, Beyonce and Ziggy, 'made' me a card and bought me breakfast. I don't know quite how they pulled it off, but Michael assures me that he didn't help. ;) It's finally my favorite time of year where it's not yet too hot, but it's fun to hang out outside and explore. For days when I know I'm going to spend a long time outside I usually ditch my big petticoats and aim for a slightly sleeker silhoutte. This floral skirt from Gemini Tauberge is exactly what I want in a lightweight skirt for these hot Georgia days. The print on this skirt also just screams 'Spring' to me with it's lovely wild flowers and pastel colors.
This weekend we found a new place for Amanda and I to shop/explore when she comes into town to visit! It's called "Final Cut" and it's an Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters Outlet featuring so much awesome that it's almost hard to take in. They have racks and racks of clothes that are mostly samples, slightly damaged or have manufacturing flaws so you have to dig to find great pieces, but that's what makes it so much fun! They also carry furniture, which is currently my weakness. I really want to redecorate my house. We found an amazing couch for $200 that I'm pretty sure I'm driving Michael crazy, because I cannot stop talking about how much I need it.

Collin worked a lot this weekend + my mom is in Georgia (but will be visiting this week, yay!) so I decided just to wander around Nashville a little bit and get things done around the house, which was so nice! Thank you GOD for no more finals until June! Collin + I went to see Minus the Bear on Saturday night which was absolutely amazing and coincidentally, what Collin had playing in his car when we went on our first date almost 10 years ago now. THAT makes me feel a liiiiittle old but I get a good laugh out of remembering what we were like back then.
Like Katie, I decided to shed my petticoat for the weekend, especially because the fabric in our new Gemini Tauberge skirts is this thick, amazing material that has a really great shape on it's own. Also, the skirts are lined with fun colors (mine is lined in lime green). I love how retro this print is, and also, I've always had an affinity for poppies, maybe's it's my love of the Wizard of Oz. How cute is this atomic print skirt she also makes?!
