OK give it to me straight. Is the Crew going out of business? I mean the sales are just ridiculous and feel a little like a last hurrah–I’ll share below some of the stuff I snagged! And lest you think this is all for me and I am a maniac–some of this is for my mom and the kiddos but yeah, mostly for me cause I’m a maniac…
Man. Have we had a rough couple of weeks or what?! I had so many plans that have gone awry these last two weeks so I will try and backtrack and share some of the highlights and if you’re morbidly curious like I am, I’ll share of our illness details–fun!
This was a pretty low key weekend around here. We have a lot planned for March and April so it was nice to just take it easy. The weather was pretty gorgeous on Friday and Saturday so we got in some strolls around the neighborhood.
And anytime the weather is decent, I bust out my dresses and skirts. This wrap dress is old J.Crew that my sister actually picked up from Buffalo Exchange in New Orleans. It has become one of my most favorite pieces! This option from Target is such a good dupe though!
What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? We have had plenty of them around here lately so I have had to get creative. If it were up to me, we’d just watch old movies all day but I don’t think the kids would go for that. Actually, Judy would but Louis not so much. Judy girl is always down for movies and has been such a mama’s girl lately that she goes along with whatever I’m doing and that’s a-ok by me!
My favorite old time movie is probably His Girl Friday or Roman Holiday–you have any faves? Or is watching a black & white movie a fate worse than death to you?? I actually just found out that TCM is showing old movies again in certain movie theaters and Huntsville is showing a few! You can see if a theater near you is participatinghere–we already bought our tickets for Philadelphia Story!
When I’m not eyeball deep in a movie marathon, I throw on my wellies and get the kiddos out of the house. We usually hit up the library or go out for a quick bite. Thankfully I snagged these leopard rain boots from J.Crew a years ago and have been wearing them anytime there’s even a chance of showers! I was able to find a really cute dupe from Ralph Lauren here –I prefer a short boot as I find them easier to move around in!
I also love how these boots allow me to pattern mix and one of my favorite combos is leopard + stripes–this sweater is an oldie but goodie (from J.crew naturally) but here is another cute striped sweater that would look great layered over your favorite chambray!
So what’s your go to rainy day look? Do you rock a pair of wellies or just throw on some well loved sneakers and call it a day?

What a lovely weekend we had! I am writing this on Sunday afternoon and am still currently in my pajamas so you know it’s been a good one.
Valentine’s Day is a big deal for the Mendiola’s and we are already prepping! I just adore spoiling the ones I love and cannot get enough hearts, pink decor and sweets! Side note–Judy’s due date was actually Valentine’s Day so having her birthday end up on February 6 just means we get to love on her a little early!
So much to love this month! I know January usually feels like the WORST but I love it! I love the freshness and the enthusiasm to make this year the best! Of course, this doesn’t last–usually by March I am hangry for Spring but for now I will relish in January.
In that spirit of enjoyment, let me share with you some of the things bringing me joy this month!
