Peplum and Ties, A Nautical Look

Peplum J Crew Top

You might remember way back in May, yes I did say wayyyy back, when Kristin and tackled some summer trends and dressing room selfies. Where did that time go?! We had a great time shopping together for the season but once I got home and looked at the photos I really regretted not purchasing the silk top from J. Crew featuring peplum and ties. It was still full price at the time but I loved the look. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon it on the sale rack. I snapped it...

One-Shoulder One-Piece Bathing Suit

It's not easy for most of us moms to bare ourselves in our bathing suits. It feels like I'm the super pale over exposed person at the pool every time. But my love for the water shows no bounds and swimming and spending time at the beach are my favorite things to do all summer long. Lack of abs be damned. No way am I about to miss out on all the fun from the sidelines while my boys play in the waves. I SO want in on that action! Which is why I was...

These photos are just us being us, you know shopping around with a coffee in our hands while my husband was at home wrangling kids. Today we have more from that same day of bestie shopping at J.

Bright Ballet Striped Tee

Striped Tee and Blazer

Calling all tee-shirt lovers! We've found another great one and this bright ballet striped tee is definitely not one to miss. I love styling a tee with a blazer for a casual professional look, although I already have a few other ways I'm planning on wearing it. So the background. Knowing that I love stripes, you won't be surprised when I say I already have two striped tee's in my closet. But I discovered that they both felt a little short length wise which make them hard to wear, especially to work. I was on the...

Pull-On Shorts Style

Honeycomb Top

This hot weather means that I am spending a lot of time outdoors playing. Typically shorts are not my go to look, but I have been embracing them more and more. After all, they allow me to play and move outside while giving me full coverage. And while I may not be giving my full normal smile up above, it's only because it was so BRIGHT and HOT outside. Thankfully I was smiling on the inside since I was so comfortable in my new favorite go to shorts. So, here's a look at my summer shorts...

Champagne Saturday: Well Hydrated

Happy weekend!  It's bright and sunny and things are looking up.  Although I'm still rockin my PJs, which I'll spare you all a glimpse of.  My trip to Albuquerque left me with a nasty cold.  I'm blaming the woman with 6 kids scattered around me on my Southwest flight, but I totally forgive her.  I mean she had SIX KIDS! ON A PLANE!  A cold is peanuts compared to what that woman experiences on a daily basis, I'm guessing.  So despite my love for the good ol' bubbly, I'm drinking lots of fluids.  And when...
