Good morning and happy Friday friends!
I’m thrilled it’s Friday but also a little bummed that Trevor’s week of vacation is coming to an end. I feel like I have been looking forward to this past week since I came home from the hospital and am sad to see him go back.
We have been talking about taking a road trip to get a little change of scenery lately and I would love to hear from any of you that have done it. Our idea is to basically quarantine like we are now, just somewhere fresh and new. I can’t believe it has almost been 6 months that I have been home with the kids and being in a new environment would be lovely!
We are thinking of renting an Air BnB in a small beach town in Michigan where we can hang out in the backyard, cook at home and enjoy a secluded section of the beach. Please let me know if you have been recently and your thoughts!
As for today’s post, I thought I would share the few purchases I’ve made over the last few months that I have been loving. All practical items that I’ve been wearing repeatedly but that have brought me a bit of joy.
Dress: Amazon – the new mumu I’m in love with! If you are new around here, this mumu was what I basically lived in last year. I ran across this new version and immediately ordered since it was breastfeeding friendly. Not only do I love the buttons all the way down but the sleeves are airy and less constricting and the tie waist and v neck is more flattering I think. It comes in a ton of prints and I stayed TTS and am wearing a small! | Sandals: Splendid, old, similar – these are my go to summer sandal and you all always ask about them! They are a few seasons old but I linked their current version above which I also love. I am a huge fan of Splendid footwear and always find them to be comfortable, well made and last forever. I always stay TTS!
I searched high and low for masks for both of us and ended up going with these since I found them both in stock in one place! They came surprisingly quick and have worked well for us. The toddler size fits Zain perfectly (he is 3) and I love that we can wash them regularly without them falling apart. I also love these and this version has a flexible nose bar in case you are looking for that!
I shared this comparison over on Instagram stories but recently snagged this pair of sunglasses from Amazon. I love my Ray-Ban’s but hate being constantly worried about them being crushed when I’m in the backyard or out with the kids. This pair is sturdy and looks almost identical!
Let’s be honest, I had every intention of starting this book last week when it arrived but that has not happened. I’ve been reading a lot of heavier books and watching a few new crime shows so a light fun read is much needed. I’m hoping to start next week!
These shorts!!! I also shared these on stories last week but I love them and highly reccomend. As someone who hates shorts, these were a win for me. I already own this pair of blue denim shorts I love (I would size up in them if you want the looser fit!) so opted for these in black but they come in several washes. They are a longer length, super stretchy and I love the distressing. I took my usual size which is odd for Free People (I think their stuff always runs small) so I would size down if you want a more snug fit!
The jewel and initial necklace are both a few years old and staples of mine! If you are looking for an initial necklace that doesn’t break the bank, I highly recommend this one. It was under $15 and I have never had an issue with it. I also love how small and delicate the letter is. I recently purchased this link necklace and haven’t taken it off since! I was also asked about showering with my jewelry frequently: I never do so not sure how any of this would hold up in the water.
Tank: Nordstrom Rack – I wish this had arrived so I could show you a better look at it on but I’m still waiting on it! However, I wanted to share because it is on sale for $14 and was a bestseller the past few weeks. It comes in 3 colors and is a bit cropped from what I can tell so I ordered up to a size medium.
If you have any questions at all, just send me a message and I hope you all have the best weekend!
