Spring Home Decor Finds

I am heading back to NYC tonight and honestly, I'm mainly looking forward to hanging the art that arrived just before I left town a week and a half ago! Something about spring just makes me so excited to decorate. I am looking forward to hanging art and sprucing up my space once and for all in the coming weeks. That said, I've rounded up some pretty home pieces for spring here, I hope you love them as much as I do!

Spring Dresses for Any Occassion

Whether you have a wedding, graduation, bachelorette party, or any other event coming up in the next few months, you're bound to find a spring dress in this round-up perfect for the occasion! I did a Q&A recently over on Instagram and I received so many questions about where to find dresses for special occasions this season. I actually found it so much harder than usual to put this particular assortment together, so I totally understand the difficulty! Everything was either $600+ or a little off... but the dresses I've included here are exceptions to that, and each one is as fabulous as the next in my opinion! I tried to keep the majority of the dresses around $200, which is usually a fair price point, at least for me.

TEN YEARS of Blogging!

The Blonde Prep, April 2014

Today in lieu of This Week's Top 10, we are celebrating my 10-year blog anniversary! I can NOT believe it's been 10 years. I remember coming home from school on this day in eighth grade and starting "the blonde prep" on Blogspot. My first post, of course, was a "welcome to the blonde prep," and I think my second post was either about j.crew or Vineyard Vines. I had no idea what I was doing, but every day I would come home with this newfound excitement to jump on the computer, create Polyvore collages (who remembers that?!), and online shop to share all of my new favorite things with maybe the five people that read my pink and orange, chevron stripe blog. 

March Moodboard (Desktop & iPhone Wallpaper)

HELLO and happy March 1st! This year is flying by! I know I say this every single month, but I love the way this mood board turned out! Of course, February being so pink was absolutely my truth, but March is not far off being pink and green! Hopefully the mood board will influence the weather to start warming up and show us some signs of spring soon! It's kind of giving Loveshack Fancy in the Hamptons / cottage core vibes, right?
