5 Things I’m Loving in April

Here are the 5 things that I’m loving for April …

1 | Lounge Work Wear

If you are like me, you have been living in lounge wear these past weeks as working from home has become the new norm. If you missed my post earlier this week on helpful tips on working from home, see here. One of the things that has helped me adjust is getting dressed everyday. I’ve swapped some of my more formal outfits instead for much more casual work wear.

I’ve been living in my favorite Vince Camuto leggings paired with a cute sweater blazer (like this amazing J.Crew one – currently on sale! or this 1901 one). These are not only comfortable, but make me feel put together and so much more productive throughout the day!

2 | Rain Jacket & Sneakers

Another one of my favorite things has been taking daily walks around our neighborhood. This spring has been really windy in Cincinnati and scattered showers keep popping up. This Cole Haan Rain Jacket has helped block the wind and protect me during the showers (it’s completely water proof). I also could not live without these Nike Sneakers. I’ve been wearing them every day and they are super comfortable!

3 | Vintage Tea Cups

Another thing I’ve been loving this spring is enjoying my morning espresso in vintage tea cups! Normally I’m in such a hurry during weekday mornings that I use the same boring mug, but with working at home more this spring, I’ve really been enjoying my espresso in these elegant alternatives. They bring such a smile to my face every morning with the fun different patterns and prints. I picked up some of my favorites at antique stores, but Amazon also has a great selection that deliver straight to your door.

4 | Scented Candles

For a tranquil atmosphere around the house, I love having scented candles sprinkled everywhere. Now that I’m home more than ever, I’ve been lighting them frequently. These Anthropologie candles are to die for! The scents are so fragrant and before long the whole house smells like an oasis!

5 | Cozy Blanket

Last but not least, even though it’s starting to get warmer, nothing beats snuggling up with a cozy blanket at the end of the day to catch-up on Netflix! This Ugg blanket is my favorite! It is super cozy and soft!
