I've been trying to take my time while walking around the city. Usually I've got my head buried in my phone but all the flowers are blooming and its just so beautiful. It's amazing the things you'll notice if you just take the time to enjoy the moment even if it is just walking to lunch.

This week I'm really trying to make a conscious effort to slow down a bit, drink 2 liters of water a day, and plan ahead. Staying hydrated and staying organized really helps me stay productive. When I don't drink enough water, my skin feels dry, my lips are chapped - it's just not a good feeling especially after a long day of work.

So, here's to a great week ahead! P.S. If you're looking for some great Spring staple items, Bloomingdales's 25% off Friends & Family sale is going on now with code FRIENDS. Here are some of my picks for the sale: 

Soludos Stripe Ankle Tie Espadrille Flats :: I just picked up a pair of these and I'm loving them!
Illesteva Mirrored Leonard Sunglasses in Tortoise/Pink :: These are really cute for the summer and a great way to accessorize naturally at the beach! I'm trying to decide between the pink and rose gold, any suggestions?
Splendid Belted Shirt Dress :: Shirt dresses are such a Spring classic, especially in white. I'm particularly loving this one because of the belt which gives the dress some shape so you don't look like a paper bag!
Chambray Off the Shoulder Top :: Off the shoulder tops are so feminine and so perfect for Summer. I love this one because it's in chambray which makes it so easy to wear. It would look great with white, black, or dark denim! Absolutely love the casual, tastefully distressed edges. 
Mar Y Sol Ibiza Tote :: I love how this tote is so versatile. It would look great with chambray or whites on the weekend but would look equally cute at the beach. The colorful tassels add just enough color to any outfit without looking over the top!

Let me know in the comments below what you guys get!
