Monday Monday

After a week of gorgeous weather we seem to have a more appropriate March day for Chicago and it's sad. There must also be something else going on as there were a lot of moms signing their kids into the gym childcare to sit in the lobby (rather than workout) me included. I wore workout clothes just in case, but let's be honest, I'm sitting here playing on facebook, obsessively reading Hunger Games reviews and blogging. Mama needs some down time.

On my mind this week - mint colored jeans, polka dots and stripes and The Hunger Games - I'm going to see the movie on Wed night, it's only the 2nd time I'll have been in a theater since Nate was born.

I got to go shopping for a few minutes without the babe yesterday and I spied some of these and love them -

J Brand Midrise Capri in Juniper

Paige Denim Verdugo Skinny in Mint

Such a lovely color that I could never wear near my face, they make a great pair of spring jeans.

the sundresses and maxi dresses come out to play!

time to stock up on spring and summer clothes for the kiddos (and yourself if like me, you've found your tanks are somehow all stained from cooking, cleaning, life with a babe....) Good thing Gap and Old Navy are having sales this week. Also, I have to say I've had my eye on a cute sundress from old navy - I love cheap summer clothes, I'll admit it. I sweat too much and spill too much to spend on my everyday clothes for hot weather. So I don't know what this will look like on, but I'm definitely going to find out!

Use code ONPLUSUP to get 10% off, or 15% of you use a gap/banana/old navy card.

Oh yeah, lot's of cute stuff for the kids too...

The Gap is 25% off today and tomorrow and 20% off on Wednesday.
From there I'm eying the maxi dresses (they come in petite!!!) in addition to all the kiddo clothes...

ready for the beach

As the weather warms I'm planning to start Nate in swim lessons, I would love it if he felt comfortable in a pool or even the lake with me come summer. But I'm also concerned about the sun. Hanna Andersson has some adorable swimwear for babies and toddler that they say offers 99% UVA/UVB. Even better, it's on sale for the rest of the month. Here are a few of my favorites for boys and girls -
