Oh my goodness, my sincerest apologies for my short hiatus! Life has just gotten super busy! Summer is in full swing and we’ve had our plate full. Our darling niece made her arrival last Thursday. She is absolutely perfect and we are all just so in love! I can’t even believe that the 4th is this weekend! June just flew by. I promise more regular posting and outfit posts coming soon. As well as a giveaway. I have been “blogging” from Instagram when I don’t get a chance to sit down and write a formal blog post so be sure to follow me there!

There are a ton of awesome summer sales going on right now. This dress and my wedges are both on sale! I love the color and fun shift like fit of this dress. Perfectly breezy for a summer day or evening. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is coming up and although summer is still in effect it is getting me excited for some cute fall clothes! Fall is definitely my favorite season for fashion!

I’ll leave you with a photo of my newest adorable niece Margaret Rosemary

Summer?

denim (similar)| top (old, super similar options here & here) | cardigan | hat  (new fave)| bag | jeweled sandals | necklace spiky pearl bracelet | fitbit bracelet | watch | ring 

We have been having some horrible weather! It doesn’t feel like summer at all, it actually feels like April. I’m waiting for warmer temps with more sunshine and less rain! I love this hat though, it’s definitely a new favorite. A great neutral color and floppy but not too floppy that it impairs your vision because that drives me nuts. Perfect to toss on during a bad hair day (like mine that I just threw to the side in a braid). Currently loving this mauevy colored cardigan, it’s a chunky knit and a great deal. And on repeat are these new sandals, at less than $23 such a steal. They are so comfy and very well made too!

How big does my baby girl look?! Ahhh, I can’t even believe it! She is starting to stand on her own, but is still too nervous to take a step alone. I feel like once she starts walking she’s officially a big girl so I’m okay waiting a bit longer 🙂

What is everyone doing for Father’s Day? We are doing brunch with my family in the morning and dinner with Kevin’s in the evening. Does anyone have a great go to brunch recipe? I’m thinking of doing my tried and true egg strata recipe of my mom’s, fruit, pioneer woman’s cinnamon rolls, and maybe strawberry shortcake for something sweet. Any other savory suggestions?

I hope everyone is having a good week, almost Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

random…

Sorry for the random collection of posts/sporadic posting lately. The weather has been so crazy/unpredictable and Kevin has been super busy at work!

white tank (sold out, similar here & here) | boyfriend shorts (LOVE!) | sandals | bag | bandana | aviators | necklace | earrings | ring (on sale!) | bezels & bytes fitbit bracelet | druzy open bangle | renegade cluster bracelet

Some form of this outfit will be my summer uniform, mark my words! I finally, finally found a pair of boyfriend shorts I love that a) don’t break the bank (excuse me rag & bone $200+) b) are cute and c) aren’t huge! The tank I got from the half yearly sale but since it was only $16 it didn’t take long to sell out, but I linked a couple super similar options for you! Everyone needs a good white tank in their life for hot summer days! I wore my hair natural because the day we shot these pics it was INSANELY humid and I knew my hair didn’t stand a chance anyway. On the advice of my sister, who has VERY curly hair, I used Aveda Be Curly Curl Enchancer cream to tame my frizzy natural waves. I love that it helps define my waves/curls without leaving them crunchy.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Make sure to check back Monday for another fun giveaway!! Thank you for reading! 🙂

midi dress | wedges | bag | sunnies | bracelets here & here | bezels and bytes fitbit bracelet | earrings

I snagged this dress during Nordstrom’s half yearly sale along with a few other cute finds. I love the colors and the shape, it’s so fun and different! Pairing it with neutral cognac accessories keeps the emphasis on the dress. I’m really into light and flowy pieces for summer and as the temps begin to rise that’s exactly what I reach for! I’m hoping many pool days are in my future.

In other news Isla is so close to walking. She can go from sitting to standing on her own and stand for like 5 seconds but then gets nervous and sits back down and crawls away. I know it’s just a matter of time. She is growing and learning so much every single day. Yesterday morning on our run the stroller went over a big bump in the sidewalk and I said “woooahh!!” she mimicked me and said “woah!” it was so cute. She also tries to mimick when we whistle and actually did whistle in one attempt! It’s the little moments like that that make me so so grateful to be a stay at home mom. Wouldn’t trade my job for anything!

Hope everyone has an excellent hump day!

Insta lately

Sorry for the mini hiatus last week! We have just been so busy with life, and haven’t had the opportunity to shoot any outfits! Today I’m going to share some instagram posts as of late. Hope everyone is having a lovely Monday!

My outfit: dress (old, love this) | kimono (sold out, similar here)| sandals | sunnies  Isla’s outfit: romper (sold out, love this one) | sandals

These are the last of my outfit photos from Florida. We took these before going to dinner one night. I am obsessed with kimonos over everything for summer. Shorts, tees, jeans, dresses, skirts. How cute is my little sidekick & how pretty is my mama? I get more questions and comments on Isla’s sandals than anything I have ever worn! LOL go figure. Everything is cuter in baby form. But seriously grown women want to know where they can buy them in their size, haha. She also has them in hot pink. I actually just had to order the same pair again in white because we lost of them in a furniture store 😦 I love little rompers on her too. Even though she’s growing so fast she still looks like a baby in them so that makes me happy! I just love my little pumpkin so much!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Sorry for no post yesterday I had a Sunday/Monday funday girls weekend in the city!

I’m happy to announce the winner of the Bezels & Bytes giveaway is Ashley L.! Be on the lookout for some more giveaways coming soon! 🙂
