I posted this pic on instagram but I know I have a few readers that don’t use IG so I’ll share again. 99% of the time when I burn a candle I don’t burn it at all. I use a candle warmer. It plugs into the wall, you place your candle on it and it warms the wax until it melts. It fills your home so much more with the scent than traditional burning! It also makes your candles last much much longer. Like almost indefinitely. I “warmed” this exact candle all last season and it is practically still brand new. It is also much safer than having an open flame around a crazy toddler! The candle warmer can also double as a coffee warmer to keep your coffee, hot chocolate, or tea nice and hot! Which is perfect for the colder temps that will soon be upon us! This is my exact warmer. Let me know if you get one and how you like it!

Obsessed with “reading” on her belly. She finds all sorts of little spots to lay down and read haha

Last weekend we went apple picking! Someone was much more interested in the tasting part…

Hope everyone is having a great week! Sorry about the lack of posts. It has been kind of slow getting into the groove this week! Working on a few little decor updates in our family room too.

Oh P.S. has anyone tried the new Toasted Graham Latte (TGL) from Starbucks? It’s soo good. I’ve never been super obsessed with the PSL like everyone else and this is right up my alley!

Thanks for stopping by!

wrap dress | tank | wedges | clutch (not available online, similar here)| necklace | watch | renegade cluster | chevron bangle | ring

This is a look I wore to The Morton Arboretum annual dinner on Saturday night. I LOVE this dress. The top is too revealing for me so I layered a tank underneath. The colors and flow of the dress are so fun though! And for less than $28, it was a steal!

On Saturday afternoon I threw a little surprise sprinkle for my sister in law, Megan. She is due with her second baby at the end of June. We don’t know if we will be getting a niece or nephew so we are very excited for the newest addition’s arrival!! Isla hopes for a girl and I’m sure the new baby’s brother, Teddy, is hoping for a boy. It was a fun afternoon of girl talk, mimosas, and brunch!

white distressed denim | white tee (my favs, 2 for $28) | kimono (obsessed & under $18!!) | grey wedges (also obsessed, so comfy) | bag | earrings (can be worn multiple ways, I’m wearing them as studs) | necklace | watch | amelie bracelet | link bracelet

A kimono is an easy breezy way to dress up any outfit. I love them over a tee and jeans, or shorts, or a dress! This one is so me, with the pale pink, floral pattern, and tiny pom pom trim. It’s under $18, which is a steal! Could be a cute swim suit coverup as well! These grey wedges are so good. It’s almost impossible to find a grey wedge. A lot of the reviews for these said they run really tiny which I do agree they run small. I’m normally a 8.5 in wedges and ordered a 9.5 and they fit perfect. So definitely size up! I thought they would be uncomfortable but are actually one of my comfiest pairs! Gotta love the little platform. They will be on serious repeat this summer as grey goes with so much!

Happy Hump Day! 🙂

bow top (old, similar here & here) | skirt (old, similar) | wedges | bag (other styles here and here) | rebel pendant | isadora hoops | watch | amelie bracelet | chevron bangle | ring (on sale!)

This looks feels very country club to me. I feel like I should grab a tennis racket and go hit some balls! Haha, but really it’s very preppy and cute for summer! My bow top is old (from F21!) but I linked a couple similar I like. It would also look adorable with white skinnies. These wedges are by far my favorites. They are neutral and go with every single outfit, are comfy and I just love the bows! The pale pink purse just pulls this girly look together. My bag doesn’t come in this color anymore but I linked a couple that do!

This week is flying by, I can’t believe it’s Thursday! It was SO warm out yesterday and the perfect taste of summer! Fingers crossed for it to continue! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

cold shoulder dress || wedges (last season, similar here and here) || botanical leaf clutch || sunnies || engraved bar necklace || pop geo pendant || isadora hoops || renegade cluster || amelie bracelet

Can you tell I’m digging the off the shoulder/cold shoulder looks lately! Such a fun take on summery dresses and tops! This clutch is one of my favorite pieces from the S&D summer line. The leaf print is in right now and it’s so vibrant and lush, perfect for summer! My wedges (which I have gotten a lot of questions on) are Kate Spade last season 😦 I wish they came out with them again because they are SO fun. I love the hot pink color and of course the bows!

How adorable is this skirt? My MIL (mother in law) gave it to me for my birthday and I love it! The shape is super fun and perforations are really in this season! Especially in bags like this and this. I feel like I should go play tennis in it too, very preppy. I’m so lucky that she knows me so well, she always gets me great gifts! I have been buying so many white pieces lately, especially tops. I just love crisp white in the spring and summer. Especially paired with brights like oranges, corals, and turquoise!

skirt | lace top | wedges (old, very similar here) | bag (old, very similar) | sunnies | necklace | watch | ring

I sincerely apologize for how bright these photos are! It was SO sunny when we took them and obviously the very light colored outfit reflected the sun like crazy. I really need to invest in photoshop & learn how to use it!

This pencil skirt is a great basic! It is super affordable, comfy, and light. Perfect for summer. It comes in a ton of colors too. I have it in 2 others as well. It’s funny because I was just recommending this skirt to Kevin’s cousin the other day, hi Laura! This lace top is perfect to pair with high waisted anything (especially a skirt) unless you are into crop tops (which I am NOT, definitely do not have the bod for them post baby). The eyelash lace is so beautiful on it and you will not believe the price. It is see through so I am wearing a nude color cami underneath. I bought these wedges 5 years ago at Marshalls! They are easily the most worn heels in my closet. They are so comfortable and the nude color pairs well with everything. The ones I linked are by the same brand and very similar. I highly recommend them! They can be dressed up or down which is what’s so great about them.

Kevin gave me this Kate Spade watch for my birthday! I was so surprised because he remembered it from one of my Valentine’s Day blog posts. I love how dainty the band it! It feels so feminine and very me. He did really well & even got Isla to sign the card 😉

OH BTW Nordstrom is having Triple points right now on all purchases made with your Nordstrom card! If you shop at Nordstrom a lot (like me) you need to get their credit card.
