My Latest Snag: Easter Outfits for Mini and Micro.
I have been loosely shopping for mini and micro for Easter over the last few weeks, but I finally settled on this short set for micro (which he’ll wear with knee socks and saddle shoes) and a floral Luli & Me dress for mini (which she’ll wear with knee socks and probably these adorable Gap Mary Janes).
P.S. Also snagged this precious white sun set for micro marked down to $36 from $100!
P.P.P.S. I’m dying over the tabletop stylings of Alice Neylor-Leyland (seen above). Would adore to add these placemats to my Easter table!

+LOVE this denim shift dress, especially with Chanel captoes.

+Would love to call this midi skirt my own.
+Who has tried this hyped face mask? Eagerly waiting to try mine out!
+Cutest teak camp stools, on sale! Adorable for the foot of the bed or a nursery.

#Turbothot: Prayer in Uncertain Times.
This is a wild and scary time for everyone, and the only thing I have to offer is the suggestion of praying in addition to whatever you and your family have decided to do with regards to keeping yourself safe. (And on that latter point — I have found it imperative and centering to discuss what Mr. Magpie and I hear and learn about the coronavirus over the course of many, many nights of “STPs” to download, compare notes, and continue to evaluate our plan as a family. I am reticent to share our personal plan because there is so much information swirling around and things continue to change and I don’t want to add any additional stress or “…but should I do that, too?” to your already very full mind.)
Both in the context of COVID-19 and other challenges you may be facing, can I suggest you consider praying a novena? I recently bought this inexpensive booklet, which has various novenas (i.e., prayers you say every day for 9 consecutive days) for different circumstances, including pregnancy, cancer, and lost things (St. Anthony!). There are many that are applicable to this uncertain and confusing time.
Sending love to everyone.
