off to texas!

Off to Texas! {image via heyclaire} || Sprinkles and Style

I'm off to Texas for the weekend for a few days filled with college basketball and golf. It's become a bit of a family tradition to take a trip to the Final Four, and in the past few years we've been throwing in a little bit of PGA golf too. To say I'm excited would be an understatement! Unfortunately, my Syracuse Orange didn't even make it to the Sweet 16 this year {major bummer!} so I'm not packing any team attire this time. I've packed a few of my favorites though, like these sunnies, this scalloped romper, these scalloped shorts, and some comfy sneakers in anticipation of the much warmer temperatures. I can't wait for sunny days and lots of sports! Which team are you rooting for in the tournament?

See you next week! Have a great weekend!

april showers

The saying goes "April showers bring May flowers." Here's an outfit to keep you dry during those rainy days.

I'm not a fan of using umbrellas so I try to avoid it at all costs, no matter how hard it's raining. I prefer to wear hooded coats whenever there's even the slightest chance of rain. You can only imagine how many of the coats in my closet double as rain coats.

Hope you're all staying dry!

Here are a few other rain coats that I'm loving for this weather!

march favorites

Usually I would film a video of the things I loved during the month, but with just four favorites for March, I thought a quick post was just easier. A short list of favorites is a good thing though! It shows just how much I really loved these products since I reached for them every day.

March 2014 Favorites || Sprinkles and Style

Clinique All About Shadow Quad in Jenna's Essentials :: I think Clinique is a makeup brand that just doesn't get enough love. I've been using their products since my dance recital days when I was just a little kid! This eyeshadow quad is one that is great to use for a natural daytime look or a nighttime smokey eye. Jenna Menard, Clinique's Global Colour Artist, knew was she was doing when she put this one together. You really have everything you need all in this quad.

NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie :: This peachy-pink gloss is great for the spring and summer. It's a sheer to medium coverage gloss, isn't too sticky and is great alone, on top of a lip liner, or over lipstick. Even better, it's super affordable {currently on sale at Ulta!} and smells like cake batter.

Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep :: Before this month, I was using a pencil to fill in my brows. I'd heard a lot about this product though so I decided to give it a try. If you're looking for a quick way to fill in your brows and set them, then this is the product for you.

Divergent Soundtrack :: I loved the trilogy so I had high hopes for the film. I wasn't disappointed, and I actually loved it more than the book. I've been listening to the soundtrack on repeat everyday. "Find You" by Zedd and all four Ellie Goulding songs are my favorites.

What did you love during the month of March?

Happy Monday!

Overall Thoughts {Sincerely Jules} || Sprinkles and Style

I have to ask because I've been back and forth on this trend for quite some time {and Blair of Atlantic-Pacific makes it look so chic} - what are your thoughts on overalls? Sometimes I see it and think "Hello 1990s!", and other days I think it's one of the best trends out there. Whenever I've been doing some online window shopping, I always search out a pair. There are definitely some affordable options out there that make me want to just pull the trigger and purchase them.

So what do you think of overalls? Do you think you may rock a pair for the spring and summer?

Here are a few that I've considered buying!

what to watch: the short game

What to Watch: The Short Game || Sprinkels and Style

Last year, I wrote a few posts about golf - everything from pictures from the Masters, outfit ideas, and even recipes. I played golf in high school, but my love for the sport didn't really start until after college. Going to tournaments is so different and so much better than watching it on TV.

The documentary The Short Game came out in September of 2013, but it wasn't until just a few weeks ago that I finally sat down and watched it. To say that I loved it would be an understatment. These kids are just 7 and 8 years-old and yet, they are already so much better than I ever was and will be at this game. They drive it farther than I do, they chip better than I do, they read greens better than I do. It's amazing! Seeing them compete at Pinehurst and what they do in terms of practice and training is remarkable. You know that some, if not all, of them will be the next golf phenom.

But don't think that this move is all serious business, they are just kids after all. Their personalities really shine in this movie and you get the sense that while they do want to win, there's a part of them that just wants to be a kid and run around acting silly with friends. I did cry at one part, but overall, this one is sure to put a smile on your face.

If you haven't seen this yet, I highly, highly, highly suggest doing it soon!
