Take A Walk on the Wild Side

After a long week of basketball last week, I am back to work on Emmilu and Brother Too!
I wanted to share with you three of my favorite items from the Wild Thing collection.
You can find all of these items in my shop on etsy (Emmilu and Brother Too)

The first is the Lucy and Mackey in Wild Floral

Lucy & Mackey in Wild Floral

This set is a classic pillowcase top with fabric ties & wide leg crop pants with contrasting ruffles. I love this set because it can be dressed up or down. You can put a tee or blouse under it in cooler weather. It is cool, comfortable and adorable!
If you want like this set, but want to go a little more on the "wild side", check out the Lucy and Mackey in Wild Thing.

My next favorite is the Candee dress.

Candee dress
The Candee dress is a classic float dress with a fully lined bodice. The great part about this dress is the strip skirt! I have pieced together 5 different fabrics to make a sensational "mismatched" dress! The bold florals, the pink bird fabric and the brown zebra mix and blend into a delightfully pleasing pattern! This dress is versatile. You can start wearing it in the spring with a blouse underneath. Wear it through the summer as a sun dress. Then in the fall when it starts to get cooler (and perhaps a little shorter) you can put a tee under it and wear as a long top with leggings or jeans!

My third favorite (but definitely not my last) is the Opal dress.


Opal is a fully lined swing dressed. I have taken three bold floral prints and pieced them together diagonally across the dress. The front bodice features a lovely brown zebra print that adds a little of the unexpected to the dress. Again, this is a versatile piece! I like to be able to get as much wear out of things as I possibly can!

I hope you will go check out these and more items.
Remember to take a walk on the wild side!

March Madness...DEFINITELY!!!

March may have come in like a lamb....but there is MADNESS at our house!

It's state basketball in Arkansas and Harding Academy is the host of the 3A tournament!

Add caption
 Our family is helping with the tournament by being a host family. We were assigned the Lady Hornets of Camden-Harmony Grove & the Curly Wolves of Prescott.
We met the teams around one yesterday and made sure they had everything they needed. We made sure they made it to the right locker room and sat behind their team bench during their games. (4 & 5:30).

Now if that is not enough basketball for you....we then watched the Lady Bulldogs of Bald Knob pull out a last second win.

Finally at 8:30 the Harding Academy Wildats took to the court.

Jake and his friends cheering the Wildcats on to a first round victory!
The Wildcats got it going in the 4th quarter and got the first round win. 
It was such a great atmosphere in the Rhodes Field House! 
Kolt was a trouper! He was with me the whole time. A total of about 9 hours at the gym just for yesterday!

My tired boy was VERY busy at the house today!!!

Caught in the recycling!

Guess he wasn't too tired after an entire day and night of basketball yesterday. Of course, I was trying to do about 20 things too many today. I never knew recycling could be so fun!

We were back again at the gym tonight for more 1st round action.

We love our Lady Wildcats!

The Lady Wildcats took the floor against a very tough team from Charleston.
Down at the half and scoreless for a long time in the 3rd...the ladies turned on the heat and pulled out a super win to advance to the 2nd round of the state tournament!

Lady Wildcats WIN!!!!

 I love watching Jake and all his friends cheering on the girls. I love the different reactions as the buzzer sounds signaling a Lady Wildcat WIN!!

 The best part was hearing the student body sing the Harding Alma Mater at the end of the game. Love traditions!!!

The rest of our week doesn't look any calmer....March Madness....YES....
But do we LOVE it?.....DEFINITELY!!!!
