The summer heat is here to stay, well, for a while anyway. Summer is my favorite season – I love all four seasons and watching them change, but summer is definitely my favorite. Mostly because I get a summer break and I get to spend lots of time with my kids, but I would by lying if I said that I didn’t love the summer fashion too.
The boho look and style is one that I am totally loving. The Off the Shoulder (OTS) top, the sunglasses, the white distressed jeans and the cognac colored wedges all give off the modern 60s vibe.

Nordstrom is having their annual half-yearly sale where you can save up to 40% now through June 4th. Online shopping has become such a quick and easy thing to do, especially if you don’t have much time for shopping, don’t enjoy going to stores or maybe you are just a busy mama with little ones constantly clinging to you. I guess, my favorite part is that I can do it at home once the kids are in bed, watch my favorite shows and sip a glass of wine or two…haha.
One of my favorite trends for this summer are eyelet tops. What is an eyelet top? It’s a small hole edged with embroidered stitches as part of a design. They have been around for a while, but are now making a strong comeback. They are gorgeous and the detailing is beautiful. This lightweight fabric is similar to the fabric used for embroidery, the trend we are seeing all over the place.
I am so excited to be partnering with Shopko for their Friends and Family event that is happening May 21st – May 24th. They are offering 20% off Fashion and Home Goods and 10% off Electronics and Furniture with a promo code FNF119.
Last Call! I have a quick blog post with some great last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas for ya. Some are even Amazon Prime and can be at your door in just a few days…score!
I cannot believe that we are already into May. Thank goodness. I get soooooo excited for this month because I know that my summer break is just around the corner and that I will have two solid months off. Oh what to do, what to do. Actually, we have a few things planned, so fingers crossed that the summer months don’t fly by.
Let me start off by saying, I have a love/hate relationship with white jeans, but when I found these, I knew that I had to have them, although, I was a bit skeptical because white jeans don’t always look the way I imagine them looking in my head. I was very pleasantly surprised when I got them in the mail. Jeans are one of those clothing items that you kind of cringe when you buy them online because for some dang reason they all have to run and fit differently…like, why? Why can’t we just have one universal size and stay consistent with it?
Dresses are perfect because they don’t require a lot of planning, you just throw one on, add an accessory and a pair of shoes before running out the door. This cold shoulder dress is a recent favorite – not only is it stretchy and soft like a t-shirt, but it can be dressed up or down super quick. The leather jacket adds a little bit of edginess to this look.
Comfort does not have to trump style. When I am not working, I am constantly on the go with my boys. We like to go to parks, zoo, museums, you name it! My goal is to look effortlessly stylish and comfortable all at the same time. The verdict is still out there whether I pull it off every time, but I try, haha. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good pair of comfy sweats, but I probably wouldn’t wear them out and about.
