We’re spending July 4th at the lake this year and I’m so excited!
Father’s Day is this weekend, friends. Let me say it again: this
weekend. I’m a huge celebrator and gifts are my love language so I’ve had this day on my mind for a while but sometimes Fathers Day sneaks up on us and before we know it, it’s Saturday and we’re having our kids paint a pinecone. If you’re still scrambling for a gift, Here are my favorite Amazon Prime
gifts that will arrive to your doorstep promptly in 2 days! And I’m not talking a bouncy ball or a mug here…these are some seriously good gifts. The dad in your life will have no idea you ordered it on your phone on a Wednesday. Win.
The requirements for my swimsuits used to be really simple: don’t give me crazy tan lines. Since having kids, my swimwear has quite a hefty list to stand up to. It needs to hold certain things in and hide other things. It needs to cover my bum enough to be appropriate for chasing after kids and stay up when I’m dunking them in the water. Also, I have to feel fantastic
in it. With the teenier-than-ever bottoms and strappier-than-ever top trend, finding the right suit can be intimidating but I’ve chosen a few favorites I can’t wait to try.
I’ve always favored Classic wardrobe pieces over any other. The ‘closet essentials’ tend to be the pieces I reach for over any trendy item I own which tells me to skip the crop top and choker and stick to my delicate gold necklace and simple day dresses. If I’m ever in a rut and can’t think of an exciting outfit to wear, I always know I can look pulled together in 5 minutes with this combination: denim jacket, black dress, sneakers. Works like a charm.
Shopbop is having an incredible Sale today and I saw it as the perfect opportunity to talk about investing in great pieces to build a wardrobe.
It’s our last Spring in Virginia and honestly, I think the whole state is punishing us with unpredictable weather. Within a few days, we had sunshine and sundress weather, full on snow gear weather and light jacket weather. And thats okay! It was the last big tantrum of winter so now let’s make it official. Spring is here.
