Weekend Recap

For some reason the week after vacation is rough. Getting back into the swing of things takes a little while to get used to. So, when Friday night rolled around, it would be an understatement to say I was excited. I spent part of the weekend celebrating a dear friend’s baby shower, and then immediately after changed into comfy clothes and prepared for an evening in with TJ, some good food, conversation, and tunes. Over conversation we talked about being intentional with the time that we have… and out of that we committed to returning to the long runs we used to do before I became pregnant… and by the end of the evening we had promised ourselves to run a half marathon in the next 6 months.

In light of the events that took place in Orlando this past weekend, I think committing to be intentional is so important. Time is precious and not promised. So, this week I am seeking to be more present in the time I have with those I love. Have a good one everyone! xx

With the official start of summer just a couple weeks away, I’m looking forward to the longer evenings and warmer days. I’m hoping to do another backyard rosé tasting party and to replicate this reduced guilt ice cream sandwich bar. We’re having a family get together his weekend, and I’m thinking that maybe we need to make these healthy popsicles again…. or maybe try out a new recipe!

With all the fun outdoor activities, I’m looking for comfortable pieces, that can take me throughout the day. I’m loving summer knits and this pullover, this sleeveless tunic knit, and this open knit pullover are on my list. I love that they can be easily tossed over a simple tee.

After a long day at the pool, I love tossing on a simple top and I’m eyeing this black and white swing tank, a pink flutter sleeve top, a simple side tie tee, and this striped tunic (which comes in 3 different colors). I also love this fringe open front cardigan paired with this eyelet tank… perfect for sitting outside around a fire, or just dining al fresco with friends and family. I also snagged this chambray lace up tank and can’t wait to pair it with a double dose of denim with these espadrilles.

If you’re looking for a few options that can be worn for daytime and evening, I’m loving this eyelet skirt (with sneakers + sandals), a ruffled off the shoulder dress, gingham cold shoulder dress, and this striped off the shoulder dress (which I recently purchased).

For little miss Harper I love this bird graphic dress, this chambray and red set (perfect for the 4th), and this red and white dot bubble romper (um, so adorable!). I also think this mint colored bubble romper and these red and white striped espadrilles are the cutest.
