    I like that blazer & top a lot!
    There's a Nordstrom Rack near my office, but I've never been in there – guess I need to get on it, yeah?!

  8. Ha! #beastmode. Love it! And now that you've announced it on your blog, you have to hold yourself accountable, right? (I purposely do this to myself too.)

    It's been the same way here! Even my butter cup flowers are in full bloom and we are growing grass here in GA. It's crazy! Not to mention my allergies have been in full bloom b/c of this craziness. haha.. I love that Nordstrom Rack top! I agree though, I just went and bought all Spring tops @ TJMaxx this past weekend, and a pair of sandals. Where is Winter?! I am in beast mode as well (btw). lol

  12. I started my #beastmode today… I need a major life change before summer. My motivation? NEW WARDROBE! 🙂 Can my husband deny me the money to spend if none of my clothes fit?? 😉 Good luck!
