I am exhausted from the weekend.  The hubby had to travel a couple days and taking care of the kiddos and the house trying to get ready for a party takes a lot out of you. Especially after a long week of working! My little guy turned TWO and he had super fun day on Sunday!  It’s always so great to have family and friends over.

Onto this outfit….so funny story…these pics are a few months old because…..I forgot about them!  Mom brain.  It’s really super easy to put together. I love midi skirts with a higher waist to hide your mom belly and make sure your bum is covered for chasing around kiddos- or high winds (I mooned several people in a parking lot last week because my dress flew up- oh well!).  You can pair a midi so many ways. Because it’s been so hot this summer, a cute cami was a great option. A crop top works if you’re feeling bold.  Bring a little casual into it and tie a knot at the front of a tee.  Cozy up this fall and winter with a chunky sweater or denim button down.  Easy peasy friends!

It’s hard to believe that it’s that time of year again.  It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the end of school and now suddenly we are in prep for Back to School.  The end of summer we should be celebrating, yet we often find ourselves racing around like mad to get everything ready for that big day.  What do you do to prepare?  I try to keep things as simple as possible and plan the attack ahead of time in effort to alleviate the chaos…and the potential first day jitters!

Read the rest of my Back to School blog takeover tips for Skechers on their website HERE!  Or scroll on down for photos and links to shopping!  This was such an honor and pleasure for me to partner up with Skechers!

Distressed White Denim

I love shorts!  Short shorts, white shorts, black shorts, all shades of denim, floral, fancy, and distressed.  I crave summer for shorts.  With just a few short months of summer here in the mitten state, I can honestly say I have more shorts in my closet than jeans/pants.

A great pair of white shorts goes with literally everything.  It’s the easiest way to dress up a look. Take this top for example.  With a dark wash denim cut-off, its very casual.  Make the swap to white denim, and you’re instantly ready for a night out.  Just try it!

A perfect midi dress!

When I saw this dress, I fell IN LOVE!  Safari print? Little Safari Critters?? YES PLEASE!  I have equally fallen in love with the brand Hinge.  I have never been disappointed to be able to find something super cute, unique, and perfect.  The cotton is so soft and comfy.  Navy is always classic for summer.  The little friends give it just that little something extra to make people say “What’s on you dress?” But you know, like, in a good way! (What.)

These sandals from Express have been worn often in the week.  They are not super arched, but in fact rather perfect. The platform is easy to walk in too.  Oh wait, back to the dress…it has pockets!  You all know I LOVE pockets! Money, keys, Hot Wheels, a Cheez-it perhaps…it all works! Flats, sneaks, pumps, and ohhhhhh ankle booties…that will easily transition this dress with a super cute jacket (denim perhaps?) in to the fall.

I was super excited to receive a package in the mail from Totes!  This beautiful berry colored trench coat is just what I needed to replace my old one that the sleeve ripped on- talk about good timing!  It’s lightweight and comfy even in the summertime. Rainy days can be so dreary, so why not add a pop of color to keep the gray skies away?!

This umbrella though…it’s big, but not huge…it’s the perfect size to keep dry from head to toe. I can even fit a kiddo or two underneath it with me, unless they’re puddle jumping in their Hunters then its more room for mama!  The print is super cute to boot.

Many thanks to Totes for keeping me dry and stylish on rainy days to come:)

I recently teamed up with Nickel and Suede and was able to style and play with several pieces of their jewelry.  I can literally sum this all up in one word…AH-MAZING!  Really, the jewelry is amazing!  But, I wouldn’t be doing anyone any favors by not telling you all a little more about this company.

I recently purchased a pair of their lipgloss leather earrings and instantly fell in love.  Straight up swooning, you guys!  Don’t believe me?  Ask my husband…I wore them every day for like two weeks straight whether they went with my #ootd or not (which they did, duh!)  I am now a proud owner of four…count that FOUR pair of their super lightweight leather earrings, and a super fabulous slit cuff (which I also now wear every day).

Bell Flares and Border Florals

I love this border floral, hi-lo top!  It looks great with flares, skinnies, and cut-off shorts.  The cut makes styling easy, giving the appearance of being tucked in the front with the longer back, especially if you like to hide your booty!

I grabbed my go to Leo print, fold over clutch to mix up the prints.  The black and white color plays off the border on the shirt making each one pop in its own perfection.  Rather than matching up colors and choosing black shoes, I decided on my nude, platform peep-toe pumps to mix it up once again.  This works because of the lightness in both the top and the flares.  It continues to elongate the leg versus a pairing with black which I believe would make this head to toe look come to a screeching halt, a definitive end instead of a continuous line that the nude provides.

Navy and White

Navy and white is always right!  It’s an easy color combo that is effortless and simple.  If you’re not quite ready for the cold shoulder or off the shoulder look, then find something with smaller cutouts.

This pair of white pants has been the perfect addition to my closet.  I love the small slits at the knee which give it just the right amount of “distressed” for me.  Pairing these colors with tans or browns looks very polished.
