Ready for Summer with a New EyeletTop

I cannot resist a new fun white top in the summer. I love this eyelet top because of the fun flutter sleeve. It’s so easy to throw it on with jeans or shorts and dress it up or keep it casual. I paired it with light wash ripped jeans and a heel for a lunch date. When it gets warmer I’m excited to wear this top with white jeans for a fun date night look.

Another must have this summer is light wash denim and this pair has been my go-to for the last two years. The stretchy denim is great while I keep working out to lose my pandemic pounds and are easy to style. I’m not usually a fan of distressed denim but this pair is easy to dress up.

Cute $15 Dress from Target

One of our first things we did with our new car was to go to Target and walk up and down every single aisle. Kudos to Jacob for being so patient while we shopped! We walked in with a list and somehow we walked out with way more things than we planned on getting. As an impulse buy I grabbed this cute dress I saw because it was only $15 and just thought it would be an easy summer dress to throw on. Right away I loved the way it looked when I got home and tried it on. I loved the ruffle hem on the bottom and was easy to throw on for errands. I’d recommend sizing down because the hem flares out. I’m wearing an XS and right now I’m usually a small/medium.

Slingback Pumps are a Trend to Try

I’m looking outside my window right now and the tree outside my house is screaming “hello, Spring!” and then I ask Alexa what the temperature is today and she tells me it’s 50 degrees…. Spring can be so misleading! It can go from really warm days to chilly weather overnight. It’s tricky to dress for Spring with floral dresses because of the constant weather changes so I like to invest my money in the Spring pieces that are a bit more practical.

It’s easy to style transitional outfits with clothes that you already own. We want to be able to wear spring colors while also staying warm! One way I like to transition my wardrobe is swapping out my shoes in spring. It’s all about the accessories! You can take a cozy warm sweater with jeans and wear it with slingback pumps. Just because the calendar says spring, we are not putting away our winter clothes just yet! I can stay warm with layers and wear those cute shoes sitting in our closet waiting to be worn!

I was really excited to find these Marc Fisher slingback pumps on sale at DSW because the style is cute, they are super comfortable and are a great price point! I can’t wait to wear these to work or for any occasion! It looks like a fancy shoe because of the pointed toe but the short heel makes them so comfortable so you can wear them for hours! They look professional and have a nice fun twist of a slingback which is really popular right now. It’s a great play on a work friendly version of the sandal that I can easily slide into. I plan on wearing them for Spring, Summer and Fall!

Life is Better in these Pajamas

During all of the moving craziness, I started to feel a bit overwhelmed. My entire life was in boxes, I couldn’t find anything, I kept tripping over things because they weren’t where they belong and because of that I was being really hard on myself. Things had to get done, my to do list was forever growing and we needed a lot more than I thought we did for the new home. On one of our trips to Target picking up a few essentials, we walked by the pajama section and these pajamas caught my eye. When I touched them and realized how soft they were, I immediately was like oh my gosh I need these! Seems silly, but I was so excited to go to bed that night with pajamas that matched and were soft!

Life is messy and unpredictable. It’s not easy and sometimes the easy things are more difficult because of unforeseeable bumps in the road. During the move, I was so tired and so critical of myself because no matter how I planned, I could not get everything done in my timeline. Sometimes we need a reminder to take some time for ourselves. To treat ourselves to a cozy blanket or just new soft pajamas. It actually took me over a week to find and then unpack my box filled with pajamas so it was so nice to actually have a set of pajamas during all of the chaos. I swear I washed the pajamas frequently and they were just as soft as when I first bought them!

Here are some things that helped me stay sane during the move….

  • Cozy pajamas duhh! Super soft and the price was right!
  • Taking a long shower. There were a lot of late nights and I would feel so gross. I cannot even begin to explain how much better I felt after taking a shower and having some time to myself.
  • A made bed. Okay, seems silly that with everything else going on that I kept the bed made but it was nice to have something inviting at night when I was ready to collapse and fall asleep.
  • Keeping the bedroom neat. The rest of the house was a disaster but I made Jake and I keep the bedroom clutter free as much as we could. I can’t sleep being surrounded by a mess so it was a nice escape during the of boxes.
  • Unpack the kitchen first. It’s usually the easiest room to unpack and it’s nice to say that at least one room is in order while you unpack the rest!



The Shoes I Can’t Stop Wearing This Summer

Stuart Weitzman cork heel (a Marshall’s find)// Under $60 Cork Heel

Lately, I have been on the hunt to find a neutral pair of shoes that I can wear with a lot of my outfits and can be worn from work to date night. My usual go to shoe has been the same 4 pairs of flats that I wear all the time to work. I got bored of the same shoes over and over again and wanted to get a neutral heel for when I have meetings and need to get dressed up. On a recent shopping trip, I found these cork heels from Stuart Weitzman and I love finding excuses to wear them. I’ve already worn them to a graduation, a fancy date night and wore them with white jeans to dress up an outfit. I found a pretty alternative cork heel at DSW that are under $60. These shoes really do go with everything and make a statement even if I am just wearing white jeans!

Comfortable Work Shoes at DSW

New job means new shoes right? After a few weeks at my new job I’ve been wanting to get new shoes that I can wear to work. Of course they have to look cute but they also have to comfortable while I run around at work all day. Seriously, my Fitbit tracks close to 10,000 steps a day because I am always on the move. I wanted to get a heel that wouldn’t make my feet hurt after 20 minutes of wearing them. Luckily I found a pair of the Caitlin pumps by Marc Fisher. A part of me bought them because they were pink (duhh) but also because they have a blocked heel. After wearing them for a few days I can say that that these are the most comfortable shoes I own! I’ll be heading back to DSW shortly to pick up a few more pairs of these in different colors because the price point is also amazing! Like the saying goes, if the shoe fits (and is comfortable), buy it in every color!
