Yesterday marked the first official day of summer, for me at least. The kids finished school and we are in no schedule-land for one full week. Then it's summer camp-ville! I am seriously looking forward to not packing lunches for awhile and not rushing out the door. It's the little things.
I haven't published a shopping post in quite some time so today felt right. I adore all six items...pleasant finds, if you will. And yes, we are back to black and white. I just can't leave it...especially when you can mix and match pieces.
What's on your summer closet rotation?
- What a sweet dress for summer. Really into button fronts this season.
- ...and here's the wedge sandal to wear with #1.
- So cute with high-waisted, paper bag trousers.
- I finally caved and this bag is so darn versatile.
- Very much into wide leg trousers...like very very much.
- Such a sweet jumpsuit that can literally take you anywhere.
Happy shopping! xo
What's the biggest challenge you face when it comes to family night? For me, it's undoubtedly finding a place that will make the entire family happy. Somewhere that will keep the kids occupied while feeding the hubby something with substance. Tough, right?
You can tell I am slowly becoming acclamated to Spring...splashes of pink, more pattern play...it's happening. And like every year, there are so many pieces I want RIGHT NOW but I am trying to reign it in and be realistic. Do we really need all this excess? The answer is no but it sure is fun to look and honestly, purging a few pieces in exchange for splurging on one great closet staple is never a bad idea.
I am on the countdown for my birthday getaway and I couldn't be more excited. Next stop: New Orleans! I've never been but I am ready for all the amazing food, architecture and color. I know this will be not only good for the soul but also a great opportunity to spend QT with the hubs. The last time we went away was about three years ago! Everyone tells me that that is an insane timeline but hey, life gets in the way. So yes, this is long overdue.
You guys, Zara is so so good right now for mod, chic Spring basics. Clean lines, menswear and cowboy details...my favorite lineup. I usually gravitate towards brights but man, I am really digging on the monochromatic wardrobe these days. And for good reason, you can mix and match to your heart's delight!
Let's go shopping...just in time for Daylight Savings this weekend, eh? Sounds like a good plan to me. I am ready to transition. Here's to hoping Chicago cooperates. While denim will always remain a staple in my closet, this year I am embracing cheeky flats and texture. I've never been one for big florals so this is my way of dipping my toe into a new season.
An extra late post on what was a pretty exhausting Monday. Not to be confused with what as an AMAZING weekend staycation in the city. More on that later as I plan to do a full write up to share with you all.
Well, that snowfall was a fine how-do-you-do wasn't it? It's a legit winter wonderland out there but I am okay with it because it's back to 40 this weekend. Wahoo! For now, I am enjoying the coziness with all the sweaters and blankets!
Fitness is such an important part of my life. Once I was done having kids, I vowed to get toned. Slowly my goal of getting toned became a reality but the real reason I stuck with it was because it calmed my stress levels and made me a better wife and mother.
Today's shopping is NYE themed. If you are anything like me, NYE means you've "BEEN THERE, DONE THAT" aka A Pajama Party At Home! It's easy as pie: 1. purchase adult onesie 2. invite real friends over who do not judge (often parents in their 30's) 3. make your own pizzas 4. let the champagne and dessert flow 4. make sure the kiddos arrive in their pjs for play comfort.
