Life has been busy these last couple of months! In March we moved to our new house. We hired a moving company to move all our furniture, but it took us longer to actually move everything else. We took time to clean out things we didn’t need anymore, which took about a couple of weeks! Plus, have had contractors working on some remodeling in our old house before we list it for sale. We are completely moved in now and I have been able to focus more on blogging.
I updated my website theme to a new one Lauren just released called “Beloved” from Restored316. It is very similar to the one I was using before, but Beloved has a few more features. If you have a blog/website or are considering starting one, I highly recommend Restored316. I have used Lauren’s theme’s for a few years and in my opinion, they are the best ones on the market. They are well coded, well designed, very versatile and are easy to customize.
A few of you have asked how my daughter has been doing with her brain cancer treatments. She is still participating in a clinical trial in Augusta, Georgia and is doing well (now). She was sick all during the month of March from the radiation treatments she received in February and the chemo medicine and her appetite decreased. She is on monthly cycles of chemo and had been sick everyday. Last week the sickness dissipated, thank goodness, and she has a bit more of an appetite. We have to travel to Augusta once a month for her clinical trial doctor visit and every other month she has an MRI scan there. We will travel there next week for her bi-monthly MRI, so please pray that she gets good results again. Thank you!
Because the last few weeks have been busy, I haven’t had time to post regularly on Instagram, but I thought I would share a few Instagram posts and what I have been wearing from my Spring capsule wardrobe. If you are on Instagram, follow me @classyyettrendy.
I shared this #flatlay of my #OOTD (outfit of the day) on Instagram that I wore the other day. The Button Front Knot Hem Tee is on sale for 40% off! These Jaycie Leather Flatform Espadrilles in Bronze Metallic are new this Spring. They are the Bronze Metallic color and they also come in black and dark brown. What I love about these is that they are so comfortable it feels like walking on air! Plus, the bronze metallic color is a neutral so they match all your outfits.

One Saturday last month, I went to J Crew Factory and Madewell and did a try-on session at each store. I posted everything I tried on in this blog post, “J Crew Factory Fitting Room Reviews” and “Madewell Fitting Room Reviews”. I shared this photo on my Instagram of a few things I tried on at J Crew Factory:
Here is the outfit I wore while shopping at J Crew Factory and Madewell. It is from my Spring capsule wardrobe:
I wore the Gingham Tie Front Top I bought:
This outfit is a no-brainer! Stripes, jeans, utility jacket and mules. It’s simple, comfortable and easy to wear.

Last week I shared several pairs of shoes on the blog (more info here) that I’m wearing with my Spring capsule wardrobe. This new pair of Vince Camuto Breshan Espadrilles looks like the Chloe Glyn Espadrilles, but a lot cheaper!

I’m so glad I added this Scoop Neck Camo Tee to my Spring capsule wardrobe! The material is buttery soft and the pattern is subtle enough, so it coordinates well with all my bottoms in my capsule. I invested in this Margaux Medium Satchel. The color is “Pale Vellum” and is a warm blush color and provides just a pop of color to my outfits. The size is perfect because I can carry it as a hangbag, shoulder bag or a crossbody.
