White Denim

SKIRT:: Rag & Bone // SHOES:: Soludos // SHIRT:: Zara (similar here) // BAG:: Etsy // NECKLACES:: Lola James Jewelry // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban

I had been on the hunt for a white jean skirt for quite some time. I had one from Old Navy but sadly I got chocolate ice cream all over it so I was in desperate need for another white denim skirt that I could wear to work! I really loved this Rag and Bone one for its higher rise and frayed bottom. It has more of a pencil shape than a denim mini, which was prefect for me to wear to the office and on the weekends!
Clearly we all know by now how much I love a striped button down and this one from Zara is just another example of that. It's oversized giving it a more masculine vibe but slightly tucked in with a fitted skirt made it was really great outfit for work! The bow in the back is totally unexpected but that's what makes it so cute!
If you watched our Insta stories - you will also notice how much I love Soludos. There are hands down the comfiest shoes to wear out and about whether in the City or the beach and these tassel mules are one of my favorite Summer buys. I am also loving these and these!
When it comes to accessories I gravitate towards dainty pieces. I like to layer on my neck, wrist or hand, and when its dainty AND gold there is never enough! If I'm feeling like I need to jazz up an outfit I will definitely put on a pair of statement earrings. My two necklaces are from Lola James Jewelry and I am so thrilled with them that I am already eyeing this! Both of mine are from the "mini me" collection. And in case anyone was wondering what the date tag meant - it's my wedding date!

Affordable Beachwear


I tried to hold out buying multiple beach coverups this year but I stumbled upon this one above on ASOS and loved the style and the price tag. I tend to gravitate towards white and blue beachwear and styles I can wear while chasing around after the kids. And at $56 I couldn't resist this one. After a few friends asked where I purchased this coverup, I decided I would do a roundup of some affordable beachwear. Everything below is under $100 (most around the $50 range).

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

We've been holding out on posting this until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went public and it finally is open for all to shop! They had an early access sale for people with Nordstrom credit cards all last week. There are a TON of amazing items on sale and wow, I did not expect so many things to sell out SO quickly! We can't wait to show you our favorites::

    • This ruffle sleeve cardigan (wah, already sold out in the color I like) caught my eye almost immediately. The soft lilac color is gorgeous and I love how unique the style is. At $55 you can't go wrong. Pair it with an easy tee and you are good to go! Both items have been added to my cart. 
    • These Vince Corbin Sneakers come in a bunch of colors and are perfect for running around everyday. 
    • Love this bell sleeve top- another great everyday piece that also comes in a ton of colors.
    • These moto leggings I could wear everyday with an oversized sweater or sweatshirt and my high top sneakers or slip on sneakers. Definitely purchasing!
  • BEAUTY:: 
    • SKINCARE:: I don't know if it was because I had three babies in three and a half years or if it's just because I'm thirty..one. BUT I've noticed so many changes in my skin and I've decided one of my new goals (along with working out regularly) is to take better care of my skin. Nordstrom has a ton of skincare products on sale and this little La Mer Mini Miracles set has been added to my cart and will hopefully be making it's way to my doorstep in the next few days. It includes the Moisturizing Soft Cream and the Regenerating Serum which diminishes signs of lines and wrinkles. NEED! If you already are a La Mer fan they also have this set which is a $492 value and on sale for $330.
    • MAKEUP:: This Bobbi Brown Palette might just be the best deal out there right now. It's a $365 value for $98. This palette includes 12 eyeshadows in both shimmers and mattes and two blushes and two bronzers. This has also been added to my cart!
    • There are so many great deals when it comes to baby gear. I used this infant carseat for Charlie and LOVED it. It is by far the safest (in my opinion) and easiest one out there. It installs super easily and feels so sturdy. If you need a jogging stroller, this is the one to have. It glides with ease and gives baby a really smooth ride. This is the carseat I use once my babies are out of their infant carseat. It is comfortable and easy to wash and we all LOVE it.

In My Closet

Wow! We haven't done one of these posts in a looooong time. Mostly because whenever I buy something new I try to save it for my styled shoots. I'm actually not due to shoot with my photographer for another month because of our busy schedules so you will be seeing some more "on the fly" posts! Here is a small round up of some new items I've added to my closet. Nothing fancy, just some good everyday kind of things::

I had my eye on this top for a while and once it went on sale (60% off) I decided to buy it. It's the perfect lightweight tank for summer and the tassel trim adds a little something extra to it.

I practically live in easy dresses like this Joie one above during the summer. This one just so happens to be 30% off! It also comes in this pretty color (not on sale). I also love this chambray style which is seriously marked down. Just an easy summer dress!

Like I said, I love an effortless dress for summer. I have to admit, I'm usually not a stripe person but this dress was easy to like. It's super light and soft and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Plus who doesn't love a good shoulder detail??

Do you remember when Cambridge Satchel came out with neon colored bags a few years ago and they were all the rage? Well I had kind of forgotten about them until I stumbled upon this  Cambridge Satchel saddle bag while browsing through Shopbop's sale items and I fell in love with the color. It's currently 40% off and it's the perfect everyday bag.

You probably saw a version of this pic on our Instagram from when I was on Nantucket for the 4th (going back soon!!). This Carmen Marc Valvo one piece suit is one of my favorites: love the one shoulder and love how it's kind of banded (helps to hold you in if you know what I mean ;). And I love wearing a pareo (sarong/beach wrap) with it and this one is now 30% off and comes in three colors. Obsessed with the little pompom details.

And that's a wrap for now!

Skincare :: Top Picks

GLOSSIER :: Rose Water Spray & Super Pure serum // FRESH:: Rose Cleansing Foam // SUNDAY RILEY:: Good Genes (not pictured Ole Henriksen Truth Serum)

 I am a skincare junkie. I love reading up on what's good and bad for your skin but the tricky part about skincare is that everyone's is different and that means going through months or trial and error. I am one hundred percent a big believer that our diet plays a role in our skin - everything from elasticity to breaking out.

I have loved and hated countless moisturizers, serums, toners , cleanser - you name it I've probably tried it. But with that being said I wanted to share some of my staples with you and give a little background on just what they do!
 A more recent addition, probably in the past few weeks I have added Sunday Riley's "Good Genes" to my nighttime routine ( and this mask once a week)! Before the Summer month's I was using their Luna Night Oil which contains retinol and should be stopped well before sun exposure! Good Genes works almost immediately. The appearance of wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation are visibly reduced to show a healthier looking complexion, not to mention a smoother, more radiant one!

Two moisturizers I have come to love are both from Sunday Riley. Both morning and evening I use my Fresh cleanser, followed by the Glossier spray. My morning serums are Glossier's Super Pure, and Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum - always followed by Glossier's SPF or Supergoop if I am not in the office.

After SPF application I put on Sunday Riley's Tidal Water cream and it's literally the lightest most refreshing moisturizer. I feel like my skin is drinking it up! At night i opted for a richer moisturizer - the CEO. It's packed with Vitmain C and has a heavier more whipped texture. After all the free radical exposure from the city and the sun the Vitamin C in this moisturizer help's repair my skin

 I know this may seem like A LOT of morning routine but trust me it's worth it in the long run. I wish I took better care of my skin growing up but it hasn't been until i had a real wake up call discussing my sun damage with my dermatologist. With that being said, after my morning skincare application I then follow with Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer WITH SPF!

 I cannot stress the importance of SPF enough but this tinted moisturizer is one of my favorites with it comes to makeup and skincare. It's not oily, has the perfect amount of tint and its extremely light weight but gets the job done!

Roberta Roller Rabbit

DRESS:: Roberta Roller Rabbit // BAG:: Cult Gaia // SHOES:: Joie // SUNGLASSES:: Ray-Ban

Summer calls for easy pieces you can just throw on and head out the door in. Items you can wear to the beach, running errands around town and out for dinner and drinks. Roberta Roller Rabbit makes some of my favorite easy to wear dresses and tunics perfect for these warmer months (and of course I love the kiddie pajamas, too!). I purchased this dress in the beginning of the summer and it's my favorite dress to wear on days I'm taking the kids to the beach and also have to run errands. I love the pop of color with the coral tassel. There are so many good tunics and beach dresses on sale at Shopbop (love this one), Saks (how cute is the longer caftan style? I have this in a longer sleeve tunic style) and Tuckernuck where you can save an additional 25% sale off with code FINALSALE25. Love the color of this tunic. And check out their kid pjs on sale- so cute!
