Blush & Beige

Hi ladies!  I have to admit, I was a bit relieved when the temperature cooled down just a little this week.  My kids all came down with ear infections and strep simultaneously and I think it had to do with being so active in the heat and going in between the heat and the air conditioning so often.  While it's always stressful and upsetting to have sick children, it's sometimes necessary to take a little break too.

On a side note, this neutral, lightweight sweater is perfect to throw on when it is hot outside, but freezing everywhere else!  It is super soft and washes well without any pilling.  Everything is 50% off right now at LOFT so I may have to scoop up a few more colors!!

Thanks so much for reading!!

18 weeks!

Hi ladies!  We are thrilled to announce that we are expecting baby #5 in November!  I am about 18 weeks along.  While I dealt with some mild naseau during my first trimester, this pregnancy has gone relatively smoothly so far.  I have finally felt the baby kicking and that is always one of the most amazing feelings in the world!

Since this is my fifth pregnancy now, I feel I have finally learned what clothing items to buy and what not to buy when pregnant.  Aside from a couple of pairs of maternity jeans, solid maternity tanks & tees and a couple of jersey skirts, I try to continue to buy clothing in my normal size, but that are designed in a way that flares out at the waist, like the top featured in this post.  This top is only $17.50 right now and it comes in black and white too!  I should be able to wear this top for a couple more months and then it will also fit great after the baby is born.

While these shoes are super comfortable, I would have preferred to wear some lace up heels or an edgier open toe bootie with this outfit.  I linked some funkier options below.  I probably won't be purchasing any heels at the moment, because my feet get so sore when I am pregnant, but it's always fun to daydream!

Off the Shoulder

Hi ladies!  I usually opt for practicality and comfort over trends, but this top met those requirements plus fulfills two of the summer's hottest trends - off the shoulder & bell sleeves!

I love that this off the shoulder top can also be worn "on the shoulder".  While I love the off the shoulder look, it doesn't feel appropriate (for me at least) in every occasion, so I love that you have the option to pull the sleeves up too.   I linked similar styles that can be worn either way below. 

Thanks for reading!

Denim on denim

Hi ladies!  Here is a casual look I wore to take the kids to the park a couple of weeks ago.  I have come around to the denim on denim trend and love to spice it up with bright colors and fun accessories.  Now that my youngest is almost two, I don't always have to carry my enormous diaper bag around when running errands, but it is still nice to have extra kid clothes, snacks, lotions nearby. So I find it helpful to throw my essentials (wallet, phone, keys, wipes)  into a clutch and leave my heavy bag in the car.  I linked some colorful clutches below.  Thanks so much for reading!!
