Our patio furniture needs a major update for Summer. I’ve narrowed down to these sets and posted to facebook to get your feedback! The reviews were mixed and made it even harder to narrow down the choices.  Here were the choices…

Patio Furniture

Option A:  I love because of the rectangle fireplace and reclaimed wood finish

  Option B:  I thought was cute because of the curved seating design.  It would make conversation really easy.

 Option C:  Has my heart because of the dark color and hello….I can already see myself taking long naps on the chase lounge.

Option D:  Is a a great combo of A and B with the curve seating and fireplace.

I am having such a hard time pulling the trigger on one patio furniture set, however, I’m leaning towards A or C.

Once I had the patio furniture at least narrowed down, I was ready for your opinions on a dining set!

Here are the choices:

Patio Furniture

Option A  |  Option B  |  Option C

I’m leaning towards C, but would love your opinions as I am at a loss on this one too.

While I was searching my patio furniture I came across these darling sets for the kids!
Patio Furniture

Option A  |  Option B  |  Option C |  Option D

This one is easy…I just want to get them all!

So what pieces would you snag if you were looking to make your outdoor space your sanctuary???

Here are some of my favorite spring outfit ideas that will easily transition to summer!  If you feel like you are in a rut or that your closet needs an update, you’ve come to the right place!  I’ve linked up the styles that I am loving right now that will give you tons of inspiration for spring outfit ideas.

Spring Outfit Inspiration

Pretty sure bermuda shorts are THE worst!!! I mean who says to themselves, “I love how they accentuate the top of my knee cap…it’s my favorite body party!” As a 35 year old mom of 3 they are a necessary evil and here is my secret to making them at least tolerable. lol Grab a pair of jeans you no longer like and cut them off. I’ve chopped off all my boot cut jeans and love the frayed look so much better than buying an actual pair of shorts. Now instead of throwing them out, repurpose them into shorts!

Mermaid tail shirt (relaxed fit, wearing a small) | Shorts: Old jeans cut off  | Shoes | Sunnies

Spring is here and summer is almost upon us! If you’re anything like me, you’re ready for some bright white tops for Spring! Lucky for you, I already found 25 of them for you – all under $50!  I’ve seen so many darling printed shorts and skirts, but it can be tricky to pair tops with them.  Having a variety of white tops in your closet can make getting ready quick, easy and actually a lot of fun!White Tops

I’ve linked each of these white tops from Nordstrom online.  Did you know that you can shop online, check out then receive an email an hour later when your items are ready to pick up?  It’s so hard to get out and shop with little ones in tow, but sometimes you need a little immediate shopping gratification.  Online order pick up gives you just that without having to push a stroller through clothing racks.

White Tops

tassel trim spring top  /  tie back spring top  /  tie front spring top  /

tie shoulder camisole  /  tiered bell sleeve

Tie tops are going to big this Summer and any tassel or bell detail is going to be another trend you’ll want to have in your closet.

White Topst-strap spring top  /  scallop hem spring top  /  ruffle sleeve top  /

ruffle hem sleeveless top  /  ruffle halter top

Girly details are classic and simple.  These ruffle tops are fun and flirty, but still flattering.

White Tops

peplum spring top  /  off the shoulder  /   off the shoulder crop top  /

linen knit spring top  /  lace-up peplum top

Peplum and off the shoulder are great for running errands and hanging by the pool.

White Tops

lace yoke top  /  lace sleeveless top  /  lace off the shoulder top  /

fringed lace top  /  eyelet flutter sleeve

Lace will forever have my heart and these tops have the perfect touch of that delicate style.

White Topseyelet collar short-sleeve sweatshirt  /  cross back ruffle  /  burnout tee  /

bell sleeve striped  /  asymmetrical ruffle spring top

I am a firm believer that one can never have enough white tops in their arsenal.  Grab one or all of these white tops and I can guarantee you will be getting a ton of use all the way through to Fall.

Something about Spring – the fragrant breeze, the flowering buds on trees, and the sunny smiles, make me want to eat desserts of the lemon, lime and berry variety.  Take this Iced Lemon Poppyseed Loaf for instance.

Lemon Poppyseed Loaf

Here in Cali, we get Citrus all through the winter, and in March there are still lemons on trees saying to you “Please Caroline, make me into something super delicious, bright and happy!” so how could I not acquiesce and create this wonderful iced lemon poppyseed loaf with candied lemons.  If you’re in the citrus mood, we also have dozens of lemon/lime recipes on twocarolines.com such as our Lemon Cream Pie, CK 1.0’s famous Lemon Bars, Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake, or the super tart and sweet magic of Maple Lime custard pie!  I could heartily recommend any of the lemon, lime and orange recipes we’ve posted, but I’m sharing this one with you because it’s brand new, so easy, super beautiful, and it tastes like a sunny spring breeze~

Lemon Poppyseed Loaf

Feel free to double this so you can bring one to a friend, save one for later, or feed a crowd.  You can also keep is super simple and skip the icing, the lemons, or both and just do the loaf – it’s fantastic on it’s own!

Iced Lemon Poppyseed Loaf Recipe

For the loaf:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 (scant) teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter (softened or room temperature)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup plain yogurt (I like to use whole milk greek, but as long as it’s plain it will work – and sour cream works if you don’t have yogurt!)
zest of 1 lemon (about a tablespoon and a half)
3 tablespoons poppy seeds (go a full 1/4 cup if you want it extra seedy!)

Lemon Poppyseed Loaf

For the candied lemons:
2 lemons
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup water

For the glaze:
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1 cup confectioners (powdered) sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1.  Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a loaf pan by spraying it with cooking spray and I always line the bottom with parchment just to be sure I get a clean loaf.
2.  Mix the flour baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.
3.  In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy – about 3-4 minutes then add the eggs one at at time.
4.  Mix lemon juice and yogurt together and add alternately with the flour mixture until just blended.  Stir in the lemon zest and poppy seeds.
5.  Pour into your prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 for about 50 minutes or until browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
6.  While your loaf is baking make your candied lemons. Cut lemons into 1/8-inch-thick rounds; discard seeds. Stir together sugar, lemon juice, and water in a large skillet over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add lemon slices, and simmer gently, keeping slices in a single layer and turning occasionally, 14 to 16 minutes or until slightly translucent and rinds are softened. Remove from heat. Place slices in a single layer in a wax paper-lined jelly-roll pan, using tongs. Cool completely (about 1 hour). Cover and chill 2 hours to 2 days. Reserve syrup for another use – haven’t figured out that use yet, but I’m sure it will be delicious when I do.
7.  For the glaze, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, lemon zest, and fresh lemon juice until smooth.  You can use more or less of the sugar/lemon juice to get to desired consistency.
8.  Once loaf has cooled, drip on your lemon icing and place your candied lemons – voila!

SeneSun SunScreen SPF 30 is an effective spritz-on sunscreen that is light and non-sticky. Unlike other sunscreens, SeneSun SunScreen is barely noticeable when applied as it does not feel thick, oily, or muddy. You know what we mean… other sunscreens seem as though they make you even hotter in the sun – like you applied a thick smothering blanket layer across the surface of your skin.
Protect yourself while making your skin more beautiful with SenePlex Complex. SeneSun SunScreen SPF 30 is oil-free, and you barely know it’s there.
