Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week! All of the items in today’s Tuesday’s Cravings wish list are under $80 which is perfect for style on a budget. My favorite item are these Steve Madden sandals which I’ve had my eye on for a while now, and I think that they are the perfect pair of flat sandals for Spring and Summer. They come in a few different colors, and I think I’ll be adding them to my closet. I own a lot of wedges when it comes to Spring and Summer shoes, but they aren’t always so practical anymore when running around town with an infant! Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?
Today I thought I would share my diaper bag essentials! Charlotte is currently 3 months old, and this is what I’m carrying around with me now (as I’m sure it will change up a little bit as she gets older). I’m currently using this diaper bag from Barrington Gifts pictured above. I really love that it’s a tote, has pockets on the inside, and is a fabric that’s easy to wipe down. I also have a backpack style diaper bag from Vera Bradley that’s perfect if I know my husband is going to be carrying it around too (it’s not as girly). Here’s what I carry with me:
- Diapers, wipes, diaper rash cream, changing mat
- Burp cloth and a blanket
- Change of clothes for Charlotte and for me (you never know what might happen!)
- A lightweight jacket for Charlotte
- Hand sanitizer and wet ones wipes
- Extra pacifiers (she loves WubbaNubs!) and pacifier wipes
- Face and hand wipes
- Nursing cover
- NoseFrida and boogie wipes (I talked about my love for Frida Baby products here)
- A toy (like this one here)

Now that it’s officially Spring (even though it keeps snowing in NC!), I thought it would be fun to do a round-up of my Spring fashion essentials! Here are the top 6 items that I think that every woman should have in her wardrobe when it comes to dressing for Spring:
1. Rain boots
For my birthday last year, my husband bought me a pair of Hunter rain boots. I love wearing them with a pair of skinny jeans, or with a classic swing dress when it comes to styling them for Spring. They are definitely worth the investment, and they are such a great pair of quality rain boots that everyone should own!
2. Denim jacket
A denim jacket is the number one item that I reach for in my closet this time of year. It’s the perfect weight and it’s such a great layering pieces with pants, dresses, and skirts. You don’t have to spend a lot one one either (this one is from Target)!
3. Blush bag
It’s time to pack away my darker colored bags, and break out lighter colored ones like this blush Michael Kors bag. It’s a favorite of mine, and it definitely screams Spring!
When Spring weather finally arrives, I’m most excited to start wearing dresses again! I have a few different printed dresses in my closet, and they are the ones that I reach for the most to wear with sandals or flats. I need to find dresses that are nursing friendly though, so let me know if you have any suggestions on places to look!
It’s time to pack away my tall boots (although I’ll continue to wear ankle boots in the Spring and Summer). One of my favorite types of shoes to wear are colorful heels like this pair pictured below.
I’ve definitely become more of a statement earring kind of girl, and this pair from BaubleBar is the one that I reach for the most in the Spring. I love the blush color!

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week featuring items from Loft! I’ve always been a big fan of Loft, but I haven’t looked at their website much since last spring before I found out I was pregnant. I was looking at their new arrivals recently and fell in love with so many pieces! I can’t get over how cute everything is (especially everything with fun sleeves) and it’s definitely dangerous for my wallet. I currently have the pleated bell sleeve top, striped blouse, and floral flutter sleeve dress in my cart. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?
