Floral Dress

Today, I went to a bridal shower, and I wore this floral dress that I absolutely LOVE! And the best part is, it was under $50 ... I mean, hard to beat that, right??

Unfortunately, this dress sold out after I posted it on my Instagram story..DARN! But here are a few other ones that I LOVE:

 

I paired the dress with my favorite espadrilles (get them here) and my all time favorite accessory: baby James! :)

It's so much fun getting to dress up! I don't get all that many opportunities to doll myself up these days, so when I do get a chance I take full advantage! This dress was perfect because it is so feminine and so on point as far as trends go, while still being really comfortable! It was comfortable and stayed put while chasing around and carrying a 10 month (almost 11 month) old baby boy - it passed the ultimate test! haha

What are you all up to this weekend? I am so excited to celebrate Ben's first Father's Day tomorrow!! Well, first Father's Day since James has been born at least - sorry Gunner!!

Have a great weekend, friends!

Beach Day, Baby + 10 Things

How was everyone's Memorial Day weekend??

The weather here was SO beautiful! It really felt like Summer and it got me so excited for all of the fun outdoor adventures that we'll be having with James! We went to a beach near our house and it was so fun seeing how excited James was. He was having such a blast running around on the stones and stepping in the water and watching Gunner dive for rocks. :) It also got me really excited for Summer clothes. This dress is so comfortable and lightweight - perfect for a hot Summer day. It's also under $30. You can get it here.

I've seen other bloggers do "10 things" types of posts and I always really enjoy reading them. So I'm going to start doing them every now and then as well! They'll just be 10 random things on my mind.

  1. I'm having SO much fun picking out all of the details for our new house that's being built!! But it's also a little bit stressful, if I'm being completely honest! I'll share more in my new real estate series that I'll be kicking off soon!
  2. James has learned how to fake laugh and it is the CUTEST thing ever. It makes me laugh so hard, which just makes him do it more!
  3. Ben and I just finished watching 'The OA' - so creepy and weird and GOOD! Looking for new show recommendations, so send them my way!
  4. James has started napping much more regularly and for longer periods of time, which has been really nice because I've been able to get so much more done! But, I MISS him while he's sleeping!! haha
  5. I feel like I'm in a bit of a slump at this point in the Bikini Series...needing to snap out of it and find my motivation again! A new bikini, perhaps?? Stay tuned for my Swim Lust List, coming soon! ;)
  6. I want to go to Italy so badly! I've been seeing all of these beautiful pictures lately of Lake Como and am planning us a trip there because - SO BEAUTIFUL!!
  7. I'm planning out all of the things that I want to make sure to document/do for James' 1st birthday! We aren't having a party, but I for sure want to do a smash cake, and maybe a ball pit for him and do something super fun on his Birthday. What are MUSTS that you other mamas recommend absolutely doing/documenting for a little one's first??
  8. I shared in a recent blog post that the mini pill was making my skin break out and giving me horrible cystic acne, which I've never dealt with before! I switched birth control pills, and my skin is definitely getting better, slowly but surely. I've also found a few products and tricks that are helping, and I'll do a blog post about them soon.
  9. Ben and I have been talking about FINALLY trying to do an overnight getaway without James...but we both really dread leaving him over night!! It's going to be so hard, but I think once we're gone, Ben and I would have a blast. So we're working on planning that for sometime in the near future.
  10. I haven't done my toe nails in over a month now...what in the world. #momlifeI should probably go get a pedicure, STAT.

Have a wonderful day!

Ok, who else is SO SO ready and excited for Spring?! This morning when I let Gunner outside, I heard birds chirping and the air felt ever so slightly warmer - it got me dreaming about sunshine-y, Spring days!

The off the shoulder trend is HUGE this season, so I have definitely been stocking up on cold-shoulder and off the shoulder pieces. I LOVE this trend!

This pretty lavender dress is seriously the most comfortable, easy, effortlessly stylish dress. I can see myself definitely having it on repeat for this Spring. It's super feminine (which I am AAALLL about) and it is light-weight (but not see-through). It's the perfect trend piece to add to your wardrobe this season.

Anyways, I just wanted to share this dress with you all because it's just the best! And OH, did I mention it's only $15??????
