Pools open this weekend! Are you ready?!
Need some last minute pool essentials? Here are a few of my faves
You may have seen a few bloggers sporting this adorable dress from Old Navy. It’s from the kids department. I was shopping at the Old Navy outlet here in Kansas City and spotted it for $8! I snagged it without trying it on, because it was the only Large left. I now know that I definitely need an XL in dresses from the kids department. The arm holes are just a lot smaller and higher up, so going up one size helps a ton. (for reference, I am typically a 4 in dresses)
Since purchasing this dress, I now have been scouting the girls department for new dresses! They are so cute, and less expensive than the women’s. I bought this one today for $15. Seriously, you can’t beat it.
It also comes in a blue and green combo. Love them all!
This one was also adorable and so lightweight
Am I the only one shopping the kids department?!… Continue Reading
I hope all of you moms out there got spoiled for Mother’s Day! Our weekend was wonderful. Spring has sprung here in Kansas City and we were outside enjoying every minute of it.
Saturday we had our first annual “Mommie’s Brunch”. It was essentially a gathering of friends; sans kids and husbands. It was perfect. We ate at a favorite of brunch spot, the Classic Cup and we enjoyed the gorgeous sunny day.
My friend Tiffany (pictured center above) brought each girl a book called “She”. It’s a precious book with inspirational quotes. I loved reading it and I look forward to sharing it with my daughter as she gets older.
The group I was with is comprised of a very interesting and dynamic group of women. I am so honored to have them as a support system. And so proud to call them my friends.
On Sunday I had a few requests…Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, pizza for lunch and steak for dinner.… Continue Reading
Summer…bring it on! I don’t care if we go straight to 80 degrees. I am so ready for it! When warmer temps arrive it’s time to switch up my beauty routine. For Summer I always love a lighter fragrance. I tend to gravitate to lighter scents anyways, so most of my favorites I only can wear this time of year. Here are 4 that I wear and love
Bond No.9 Hamptons is a delicious scent suitable for a man or a woman. According to Bond, Hamptons is “A male-female weekend scent, combining lush florals with a woody musk that lingers like a creamy ocean mist” . It has notes of Lime blossom, bergamot, white jasmine, magnolia, amber, sandalwood. It’s light, beachy and it completely embodies the feeling of summer.
Bellini by Calypso immediately transports me to a glamorous beach vacation. It has top notes of apple, pineapple, grapefruit, orange
heart notes of white peach, coconut, frangipani, cassis, freesia, jasmine, orange flower
and base notes of white musk, amber, sandalwood.… Continue Reading
I am totally riding the fun nail polish train as long as possible. It’s so refreshing to be able to use colors other than pink, red or coral! Essie’s resort collection is amazing! 4 bright fun shades perfect for toes or fingers.
Think of all the beautiful places you have taken a vacation. Remember the color of the water? That is what “in the cab-ana” reminds me of. The most perfect shade of tropical blue. love it.
You can find the entire collection for sale HERE.

Another great dress! Love the print. Wear this with flat sandals or dress it up with a heel…$24.80
I actually have these shorts from last season. First of all, they are a great price at $15.80. For me they are like the grown up version of denim shorts. Not too short and not too trashy. I lived in them all summer!
When you can find a great blouse, especially one appropriate for summer it’s good to snag it up! I love this linen blend, slightly sheer blouse. It looks great paired back to printed pants, shorts (with the sleeves rolled) or your favorite jeans.… Continue Reading
I had taken a break from Etsy, but I have found myself back on there as we are doing some projects in our home. I came across this darling shop Habitation Boheme.
I am just loving her mix of patterns and colors! They are also extremely well priced at about $38-$48 per pillow cover.
She is also an Indiana based designer, which makes me slightly biased since I am a proud Indiana University alumn!
