Fourth of July Looks

Hi Friends! It has been waaaay too long since I’ve posted on here and I’m so sorry! If you follow me on Instagram you already know we’ve been in Florida and Alabama for the past 10 days. I had planned to do some blog posts while we were on vacation but I forgot my laptop. I’ll be sharing a few pics from our trip on here tomorrow!

Anyways, I wanted to share a couple of cute Fourth of July looks with y’all you can still order with free two-day shipping and get before the Holiday! We shot these looks up at Saxony Beach which is the cutest little lake with beach access in Indy.

First, how adorable is this USA sweatshirt?! It is SO soft and perfect to throw on over a bathing suit and cut-offs. I’m such a fan of an over-sized pullover and cut-offs at the beach or pool. It’s just such an effortless, cute summer vibe. I paired it with these cut-offs I basically lived in last week. They have a flattering fit and they’re only $68 which really surprised me when I looked at the price tag. Plus, they cover your booty which is a must, lol! I’m not a fan of my butt cheeks showing, lol. I also paired it with these adorable fringe sandals that are a must for Summer!

Outfit 2:
I love a good affordable off-the-shoulder top for the beach or the pool in the summer. This one is only $42 and comes in several colors! I paired it with the same cut-offs and sandals as the sweatshirt. Also, how fab is this crochet beach bag? Love the cute fringe tassel and it’s on sale, SNAP! I’m wearing Mac lipstick in the shade “Ruby Woo”, it’s the perfect red. I’ve loved this shade for years, it’s perfect for Fourth of July or Christmas. It’s not too orange or pink! We are heading up to Lake Michigan with friends for the Fourth. I’ve lived in Indiana most of my life but I’ve actually never stayed on Lake Michigan so I’m so excited! The girls are excited to play with their friends at lake. Do y’all have any fun plans for the weekend?! XO

Lavender Duster

Is it seriously Friday?! This week flew by! Darek was on a business trip all week so needless to say we were all SO happy for him to get home yesterday. I thought I’d give you guys a little update of what’s going on in our lives. The girls have their dance recital this weekend so we are going to have a crazy busy weekend but I am so excited to see them dance! They’ve practiced all year and it’s seriously the cutest thing ever to watch them up on stage. Hopefully Brynleigh doesn’t get stage fright like she did last year– you  guys, she cried up on the stage the whole time during her number.  It’s so funny because she LOVES to dance and is so excited to go every week but then when it came down to GO time she froze, poor Babe! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this year she will rock it out! We leave for Florida next weekend so we’ll be busy packing and getting ready for that next week.  I’ve already bought WAY too many swimsuits for the trip, you guys…I have a problem, ha!  We’re renting a beach condo with my Mom, Dad, sister and nephews.  The girls are looking forward to see their Aunt Katie and cousins :).  My sister and I are super close and we always have so much fun together.  I’m so excited to see her and my sweet nephews, next week can’t come soon enough!

Ok, so about this cute outfit…I’m majorly swooning over this lavender duster! I mean, how gorgeous is this color?!  I’m wearing a size XS for reference.  I paired it with my fave boyfriend jeans and this flowy layering tank ($25). It would also be SO cute with shorts. I’ll definitely be wearing this duster all Summer long! Also, you guys know I’m obsessed with these neutral lace-up heels. Be sure to check them out if you’re looking for some new heels because they are so comfy and they’re on SALE– woot!  I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend!   Thanks for stopping by! XO

Striped Knotted Tee

After I had Brielle I remember my mom said to me, “Now that you’re a mom you need to buy a lot of hair ties!”…She was implying that I didn’t have a lot of time to fix my hair or get ready now that I was a mom– which I’ve found to be totally true, ha!  There are SO many days when I just don’t have the time to take an hour to get ready so I just throw my hair up in a topknot, throw on a cute tee and jeans and I’m out the door #momlife. Of course I love to get dressed up and I have days when I like to take my time and curl my hair and plan my outfit down to the last accessory but sometimes it’s just not realistic. That’s probably why half of my closet is t-shirts, haha. I love this knotted striped tee SO much.  It’s available in several color options and how cute are the ruffle sleeves? These skinny jeans have been on repeat lately and I can’t get over the fact they’re only $64. You guys already know I love these wedges. They are seriously more comfortable than some of my flats and I wear them a ton during the Summer. Also, I’ve had a ton of requests so I’m filming a topknot tutorial and it will be up very soon!

My cute Mother-in-law flew in today to stay with us for a few days and we’re so excited to have her.  The girls love her so much and she’s honestly one of my best friends.  We have so much fun together. We are heading to Brielle’s end of year Kindergarten program tomorrow. I seriously can NOT believe she’s almost in First Grade–what?! So crazy and sad and happy all at the same time, haha.  Thanks so much for stopping by! XO
