Allie Clay / spring closet cleaning

Allie Clay / spring closet cleaning 150 150 Jenn Pennell
I’m a little late in the spring cleaning game, but who’s got time for that?

My first place to straighten up is the closet, because it’s the most important room right?!

First, I want to show you the AMAZING cosmetic bag that I got from my friend Allie, over at Allie Clay Monogrammed Gifts on Etsy

She even sent over this picture of my custom bag!
Adorable, right?!

My little makeup station got a little makeover too!
Anyone recognize that gorgeous face in the picture?
It’s Angela Lanter from Hello Gorgeous!

I had to clear off my sweater shelves to make room for all my summer shoes!

Thanks so much Allie for gifting this beautiful bag!  You’re the best!

 Hello Love!

Well friends, today starts the madness.
The time of year when me and my little rascals will be going non-stop

Next week…rehearsals/recital, ballgames, and standardized testing! YIKES!
This post is FULL of goodies that I’ve been dying to show you and one of the pieces will be part of a G I V E A W A Y next weekend on my Instagram page, so make sure you’re following along!

Oh, HGTV.  You’ve had a piece of my heart since the first time I laid eyes on you.  With wonderful shows like Love it or List It and Income Property, I just didn’t think you could get any better, but oh, oh, HGTV, you really hit it out of the park when you brought on the delightful, playful, outstanding Chip & Joanna Gaines and their fabulous show, Fixer Upper.
I. Can’t. Get. Enough.
And it’s not just the hosts, no, it’s her design vision.
The colors.  The materials and texture.  THE SHIPLAP.
If you haven’t ever seen it, please turn it on tonight.  Turn it on tonight and fall in love with The Gaines family.  You won’t regret it!!
We love Sundays in this house and they always call for family time.
We decided to have us a girls day and we traveled down to our favorite antique shopping mall
looking for all kinds of treasures. 
We found some adorable pieces and I wish I would have taken pics of them all!

 We scored another vintage Lilly Pulitzer dress! 
Wanna buy this shirt?  Find it here!

Last year the gorgeous Landon Lacey sent me some goodies to model and I fell in LOVE!
She sent me a beautiful druzy necklace and the gorgeous earrings that I wore in this post.
Today’s OOTD was this super cute, super cozy outfit.
The adorable gray & lace tee is from JCrew and the amazing pink boyfriend jeans are from
Ann Taylor LOFT (which I found at TJMaxx last weekend!)
And the mason jar? I mean, how cute is the lid and straw set? I found those at Target a few days ago! There’s nothing better than drinking Pink Lemonade from a mason jar! Don’t you agree?!

Thanks Landon for this fabulous necklace 
and girl, you were a S T U N N I N G bride!!

Hello Love!
It’s been a loooooong week hasn’t it?  It feels like Saturday was forever ago and I think that this little cold snap is what has made the week feel like it’s been dragging.  I was so used to wearing sandals and dresses that it was a struggle to put long pants and jackets back on this week.  
Jenny + cold weather = no good.
Monday we had a beauuutiful day and I was to be able to get out and take some pictures. I feel like I’ve gotten so far behind on my posts lately and I’m so thankful the warm weather will be here to stay very soon.  
Last week I showed you a fabulous tote bag from Urban Expressions and this week I’m featuring the second bag I received from them, the Hudson.
I mean…how absolutely fabulous is this pink bag?!  I die! 
I’m not gonna lie, I am the WORST on making color decisions about things.  When I have many color options, it’s a struggle…that’s probably a good reason why I love discount shopping so much.  You usually only have one to choose from, right?!
Gray is such a goooooood neutral color to have in you closet, but guys, there was just something about that pink that I just couldn’t turn away from!
There are only only a few colors left on their website as well so don’t wait too long to grab this gorgeous bag!

Baseball has officially started here in Tennessee and I had to get this shirt to start the season!  We had our first practice on Sunday and what better background to show off this great new tee. I mean, why not get a little work done while sitting at the hot ballpark?! 
Be sure to check out my other blog posts from the great girls over at

Thank you sweet Hannah for sending me another fabulous shirt!!
