And just like that we’re in March!

I’m not going to lie, when the calendar hit March 1st on Sunday, I did a happy dance for a number of reasons. The first one being, we’re that much closer to spring, which also means summer is imminent. Second, just a few more weeks until this baby comes, and lastly I get to share the 5 things that rocked my world last month (February) which leads to today’s post!

Let’s get right into it!

1. ShopBop

I’ve grown quite fond of Shopbop  because they always have great sales when it comes to designer goodies. I’ve mentioned before I’m not big on brand names, but I will say that spending a little more sometimes equals quality. Last month (Feb.) I scored an incredible deal, on the Thakoon Addition shoes pictured above, and I can’t wait for the snow to melt so I can rock these bad boys.

Sooo, to celebrate the new season, Shop Bop is having a BIG spring Sale; starting today, March 3rd  6:30AM EST to Sunday March 8th 2015 at 4AM EST and you my dear,  can save up to 25%. Get your shop on by clicking this coupon code and thank me later!

2. Danielle Forte Collection

Last month I had the chance to chat with Danielle Forte, Chicago Bear’s Matt Forte’s wife regarding her new collection. I wrote about it for the Chicago Parent blog, and you can read all about it right here. If you’re expecting or looking for post pregnancy clothes that are comfortable and cute, she’s got you covered!

3. Coveted Things

So obsessed with everything about these swaddle scarves so… I’m just going to leave this here. Click at your own risk.

4. Amy Poehler’s YES PLEASE

So I became a huge Amy Poehler fan after binge watching several episodes of Parks and Recreations on Netflix. I’ve always known her bff Tina Fey to be hilarious, but Amy is just as funny. I bought Poehler’s book last Fall, and just started reading it last month. Hilarious, and insightful just like Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants. Get it, read it , I promise you’ll love it.

5.Sultry Summer

I wanted to leave you with a sneak peak at what I plan on looking like before summer ends. Fellow mom and curator of GOODLOOKNOUT nailed it right on! Thanks for the inspiration! Check it out here!

And there you have it folks! My five!

Until next time!
