What's in my beach bag?
We Are Now, We Are Bold, We Are Fit, We Are Free – We Are USA. We are boohoo.
boohoo is a brand after my own heart. I sang the praises of this dress yesterday. I want it in two other colors because the fit is amazing and let's face it...affordable fashion is my motto, let alone $35 dresses that make you feel like a goddess. The website is one of my top five bookmarked shopping sites for a reason!
Naturally, when they asked me to share what's in my beach bag...that was a no-brainer because as you know, I've savoring Summer. Every last watermelon slice!
What's in my bag? (you'll probably wish you'd never asked!) Obviously my girls have a huge influence on my free time hence the banana and stray goldfish. Sunblock...a given. Bathing suit, and cut offs because if I am with them...we're at the pool and of course, my wallet...because someone has to buy bomb pops for the clan. Oh and hand sanitizer because I'm a freak about germs. (Did you guess that? I bet you did.)
No, it's not as glamorous as my evening clutch but it's me; everyday. Enjoy the summer, enjoy the now.

It’s almost too good to be true…a rare Monday post. I used to be so diligent!
I’ve recovered, and I 100% mean “recovered”, from a busy weekend…ready to tackle Monday. This is what it felt like before when work wasn’t as busy and I was actually productive during the work week. It feels great!
I’ve caught up on NYFW here and there but really, most of what I love is based on my own personal preference, fit for my body type and seasonality. Animal print returning is not ground breaking, people…this is the one millionth time it has returned but I always love to showcase my pieces again. On my radar: tiger print!
It's always bittersweet to approach the long Labor Day weekend. The unofficial close of summer. We're savoring the last of pool weather, popsicles and barbecue no different than you, I am sure.
I shutter to think what I wore to my first job out of school. More awkward than anything. A small budget while trying to navigate my personal style as a young 20-something. The reality is that I didn't figure out my personal style until really about two years ago and I am 40. This could also be largely attributed to the fact that my body has changed with birthing two humans. Regardless, I am comfortable in the skin I'm in and I know what works for my body. This doesn't mean that I don't have occasional missteps but on the whole, I've widdled my closet down to a pretty curated collection.
If I had to wear one outfit over and over again - this would be it. I'm obsessed with these budget friendly denim shorts; once you see the price you'll want some, too! Dressing them a zillion different ways has never been my problem either. From muscle tees to OTS tops to blazers as pictured above...I think you can create a new outfit with a simple swap of accessories.
Apparently when you purge your closet you can actually see all the items you have in it. Novel, right? As much as I used to be a trend follower, you'd be surprised how basic I've really become. Ridiculously basic. Perhaps a basic bitch. <wink, wink>
So here we are. Day 3 of me trying to complete a singular blog post this week and it's 9:20pm on Wednesday night. I am a writer by trade so you can imagine how incredibly unnerving this is for me. I used to crank out five posts a week with ease. And now...I am lucky if I manage two a week. Why? Well...
It's hard to beat a LWD for summer. It's cool, feminine and crisp even on the days when you feel like you're melting. Melting is in full effect in these parts but I'm not mad at it because that means double the popsicles!
Enter summer salads, popsicle dates and Sundays spent in the yard. Yes, we've officially ended summer and I couldn't be happier. Schedules have loosened up just a bit and I am finding it nice to be able to pick up the girlies after camp and see their tired, happy faces.
