This season I have come across so many cute striped jumpers. I found this at Forever 21 this Spring, and it is super lightweight and comfortable. Perfect for a warm summer night! I went neutral with my accessories and added a pop of color with some yellow tassel earrings (now $6.99 on sale!)

Off shoulder, cutout shoulder, and one shoulder…we are seeing all of it this season. And, even going into fall it still looks as though the cold shoulder will be prominent. I like these styles of top, because it shows a little bit of skin without being too sexy. And, depending on your body type it seems as though there is a cold shoulder top to fit any shape or style that you are looking for.
4th of July is one of the best and easiest holidays to dress for! This year we will be staying in Kansas City doing a bike parade in the morning and a Country Club in the evening. I found two looks for the kids at The Little House in Fairway which will be perfect for both occasions.
Romper: Appaman, Shoes: Saltwater Sandals , America Tee: Chaser, Navy/White dot Shorts: Egg
The bandana is an easy accessory to add red or blue to an outfit! Just twist and tie!
If you have a dressier occasion; loving this Octopus/Anchor print dress by Roberta Roller Rabbit for V. J is wearing a super lightweight, almost sport fabric polo by Busy Bees with plaid shorts by The Laurence.
Shop these looks at The Little House in Fairway. They also ship anywhere in the US!
When I was younger, I had a longterm boyfriend who compared me to others constantly, and take jabs at me that made me feel inadequate. This led to many years of my teens and early twenties comparing myself to others. It’s a brutal cycle that leads nowhere except body shaming and terrible self image. When I got out of that relationship and met my husband I was not so happy on the inside.
My husband is the kindest, most genuine person you will ever meet. He makes you feel like a million bucks, and when he says something he means it. It took me a while to get used to him complimenting other women so often. But it is one of the things that I love most about him! For the first time in my life I had someone building me back up to a place where I felt good about myself again.… Continue Reading
It’s freaking hot in Kansas City. We have had 90-95 degree days since the beginning of June. I have resorted to shorts and loose fitting tanks or this knit tank dress from J.Crew I love it so much I have it in 2 colors! TODAY it is 40% off, and make sure to size down, depending on how you want it to fit. I am wearing an XXS.

My panama hat has also been a life saver, since we have pretty much been living at the pool.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating your favorite dads!
I felt like the weekend started on Thursday, as I was the honorary chair for Purses with a Purpose to benefit the FIRE Foundation. We auctioned off some amazing bags, and raised money for an incredible cause.
Without this foundation, children with special needs would not be able to attend parochial schools in Missouri alongside their siblings and peers. FIRE provides the funding for para professionals and special educations and the tools the students need in the classroom. A huge thanks to friends and women in the community for coming to support FIRE.
Outside of Thursday, we didn’t have much planned, so we just kind of winged this weekend…
Friday night we took the kids to Jax for their happy hour (which is awesome, in case I haven’t mentioned it before).… Continue Reading
I always love finding unique sites for cute, and high quality kids fashion. When I discovered Sailor Janes I fell in love with their selection and brands that you don’t see everywhere else. One of the cool kids clothing lines they carry is Carly Megan; which is made in the USA, has beautiful silhouettes and soft fabrics for your little ones. I got Vivi this precious “hideaway ruffle jumpsuit” to wear this summer; I am obsessed. It is so simple, yet the details make it special.
I am so excited to give away a $50 credit to Sailor Janes to one lucky winner, to use on an item of your choice! To enter, you must comment with the item that you would spend your credit on. Just follow the rafflecopter instructions below for additional entries.
Good luck everyone, a winner will be picked on Monday!
I was over Maxi dresses, until I saw this dress at Alysa Rene Boutique. It was such a statement, and I knew I had to try it on. I love the print, which is modern and bold yet not too crazy. It’s light and breezy, perfect for a hot summer day or night. And love it paired with this choker by local designer Julie Zancanelli.
