I'm gearing up for our annual vacation next week and feeling all things summer. Bring on the frilly tops, distressed shorts and lace up anything. It's all I can do this week to get through my work as I await the first sip of a pina colada. My vacation weakness; why do they have to be so bad for you? It's a cruel joke during bikini season...don't you agree?
Grab your cuppa jo and get your shop on this morning! There's some amazing deals out there. Happy shopping! xo
- The braided detail on this off-the-shoulder top is bananas.
- These lace up sandals...almost sold out!
- ...because it's the step sister of my favorite style top this season. The sweetest dress!
- It's almost ice cream season which is why you need this purse.
- And for the cooler nights, this lace up top. So cute with a denim skirt!
Life has been busy…busy with birthdays! Hello to all my Virgos out there. You can’t imagine the time I’ve logged onto Amazon and Target these days. It would blow your mind. But, I love a good challenge so today I am sharing 10+ Fall Finds from our beloved Amazon. Who doesn’t love a good #Amazon moment? Gotta love a destination where you can buy stevia, J.Crew chambray, kids pajamas and LOL dolls all in one spot.
It always takes the first gloomy day and back-to-school for me to change my seasonal mindset. I just need a little added push to get me over the hump and out of cut off shorts. You feel me?
If there’s one holiday I am fully supportive of coordinating outfits for - it’s the Fourth of July. Hands down. Every year I snag red, white and blue outfits from Target for the girls because they ride bikes in our hometown parade. <super Normal Rockwell, I know> And, undoubtedly, the temps are near 100+ so cool, comfortable pieces are the name of the game. Bonus points if they transition from day to evening with added layers for the firework show.
We are at the point in the summer, although it hasn’t “officially hit” where the basics become the wardrobe staples that we reach for each and every morning.. A solid pair of cut offs, the most perfectly worn in sandals, light knits, denim jackets and more. Toss in some air-dry hair and you are really speaking my language. This is essentially my summer playlist.
Three more days! It’s incredibly hard to believe that the school year is over which leads me to one question: did you remember to say “thank you” to your teachers? I will be honest in that I completely spaced and feverishly hit the internets on Sunday in a panic. How could I have forgotten?
Meet my girl, Zandra. She’s the latest addition to the Rockport Summer Collection and she is just perfect. She mixes well with frocks just as well as she does with cutoffs and tees. She does well with any crowd. She pounds the pavement with ease in the concrete jungle just as seamlessly as she does on suburban soccer fields. Currently my MVP for the Summer!
It’s no secret. Amazon is just a black hole of amazing deals. Admittedly, I’ve been tumbling down that hole pretty frequently this Spring. Whenever new trends hit, someone just slap a “sucker” sticker on my head. I am officially the best consumer in ‘Merica.
Previous years didn’t affect me as much as this birthday. Not sure why. Eight might as well be ten as far as I’m concerned. She just doesn’t feel like a little girl anymore and while it’s wonderful to see her grow and I couldn’t be more proud…gosh, I am not ready to let go of that little baby. This is a sentimental birthday for me. Missing teeth and all.
I feel pretty confident that women all around the Midwest are rejoicing at the sight of sunshine and blooming flowers. That only means one thing to us: sandal season.
I’ve been receiving quite a bit of new beauty products as of late and I ain’t mad about it. Spring is the perfect time to switch skincare routines and opt for lighter, cleaner beauty. Thank God it’s here. It’s been a long winter. And while I haven’t gone 100% clean beauty, I am slowly still inching my way. Additionally, there were some purchases made towards restocking my favorites on last minute runs before Europe. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at some of my drugstore finds.
