Girls' Day Out

Dress: ASOS (petite size here) | Handbag: Gucci | Shoes: Marc Fisher | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Ring: Nadri

Anna's Outfit - Dress: J.O.A (on sale!) | Necklace: Anthropologie | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Hat: Sole Society | Shoes: Kate Spade

My blogger bestie, Anna from The Styled Fox, and I met for a light lunch and wine a couple of weeks ago. There is a cute cafe here in Houston called Sweet Paris that we meet at weekly just to enjoy a little girl time. This is much needed as I am ALWAYS with my little ones. Even if it's just for an hour or so, it can be nice to get out without the munchkins once in a while.

I am OBSESSED with this off-the-shoulder maxi dress that I scored for $60! I also found it in a petite size which is a major plus because getting EVERYTHING altered can be a pain sometimes (short people problems).  This dress would also be great for a date night or even a fun summer gathering. My husband said I looked like a little senorita in it. Haha!

Hope you are enjoying your week, friends!

4th of July Outfit Inspo for the Family + Nordstrom Giveaway

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

We are looking forward to 4th of July this year because we will be hosting a fun party in our new home! I purchased this beverage tub from Pottery Barn and I plan on filling it with our favorite beer on one side and kid friendly drinks on the other. My husband will probably grill BBQ chicken and I will make all the sides (potato salad, veggie kabobs, roasted sweet potatoes, fruit salad).

Dressing for the Fourth is one of my favorites and I love keeping my style casual and comfortable. I found this cute off-the-shoulder top and it's only $35! My Converse sneakers are my go-to shoes and perfect for chasing the kiddos around in the backyard. My husband has been into the Vineyard Vines brand lately and they have lots of great options for summer! I usually have a little more fun with the girls' outfits. I found this pretty little stars and stripes dress for Bella and I thought these overalls paired with red Salt Water sandals would be adorable for Avi. Salt Waters are a classic!

What are your plans for the Fourth?

Boyfriend Tee

Top: Adidas | Denim: Nordstrom | Sneakers: Adidas | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Watch: Michele | Lip Color: Persimmon by LipSense

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! I hope you enjoyed your weekend! 

I am kind of obsessed with Adidas at the moment and have been stocking up on lots of cute tees and hoodies (I know it's summer but it's always cold in my home!). I fell in love with the color of this tee and I seriously throw it on every morning for preschool drop off. It's a nice basic to have in your wardrobe and would also be cute paired with distressed denim shorts, a denim skirt or even your favorite pair of workout pants! There is so much you can do!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Memorial Weekend Recap

Top: Target | Shorts: Treasure & Bond | Shoes: Sam Edelman (my fave!) | Hat: J.Crew | Bella's Outfit: Target | Bella's Shoes: Target | Aviana's Outfit: Gap (sold out)
Highchair: 4moms | Outfit: Zulily (old)
Shoes: Sam Edelman

I know this post is a little late but I wanted to share some photos from Memorial Day weekend. We had one day of beautiful sunny weather and we spent the entire day outdoors. I bought the girls an inflatable pool and they had a blast splashing around and playing together. I really wish I would have snapped a pic of that!

My husband has become a pro griller and made the most delicious grilled chicken and I whipped up an amazing Greek salad. I love Greek salad and this is something we eat weekly!

On the one rainy day we had we pretty much stayed in our pajamas all day and watched movies. Rainy day weather just makes us so lazy! I also crave junk food on rainy days, it's the oddest thing!

I wanted to end this post by thanking everyone who has served and given their lives for our country. We are forever grateful...

The Prettiest Floral Dress

Dress: TopShop | Necklace: BaubleBar | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Handbag: YSL

One of my favorite things to wear during the summer time is flowy maxi dresses. I find them to be comfortable and I love that you can still look put together. Having a maxi dress on is also a plus when you are bending over and picking up your children. Short dresses can be difficult sometimes! I'm sure all you mamas know what I'm talking about!

I spotted this beautiful floral dress online and ordered it immediately for a blog event that I attended in Austin. I sized up (after reading reviews that it ran small) but I kind of wish that I would have gone with my normal size as it was a little big around the waist. No biggie as I had extra room to eat!

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
