I was afraid this romper/dress was going to be too low cut for me but the neckline goes wayyyy deeper on the model- its perfectly fine!!  So weird!!  If its still too low for you I added a couple other yellow dresses for you up there, just scroll through!!  Missy’s little blue dress is just perfect for summer too!!

Summer Style With My Little!!!

We live for summer!!  And couldn’t be happier that its pretty much summertime!!  Born and raised in southern California I think its just in my blood- dresses and sandals, boys in shorts and tanks- the smell of sunscreen ( love it!! ) BBQ’s, beach, pool- its my jam!!  I have considered moving to Hawaii when it drops below 70 here in the winter haha!!

If you think about it- its much easier dressing kiddies and yourself in summer clothes!!  I tell the boys to throw on some shorts and pick a tank or tee- I don even care if they match! =)  And for us its a dress and sandals?!  Easy breezy!!  I picked up both of our outfits at Nordstrom, our one-stop shop for the boys and I!!  They always have good quality clothes for my boys and me- always on trend, good selection, and prices ranging from very affordable to designer- so theres something for everyone!!

I love these fun shorts Bubs is wearing ( speaking of Hawaii!) and this tank comes in other colors.  These shoes are perfect because they slip on and he’s not into sandals right now for some reason- boys go through weird phases!!  Im pretty obsessed with this dress Im wearing- plus this bag and shoe combo- you can pretty much wear anything with!!

Mixing Denim, Band Tee, and a Lace Skirt

I about died when I saw this skirt!!  Its everything!!  I mean seriously!!  I wore it to church last week with a white top with ruffle sleeves- but sometimes its hard to get a picture after 3 hours of church and getting starving kids home to eat!!  I just love that you can wear it so many different ways!!

Obviously this day I was feelin a little edgy ( and maybe wanted to be comfy in a t-shirt?!) so I paired it with my new favorite super soft band tee!!  Threw on this distressed denim jacket ( you won’t believe the price on this rad jacket!! )  and went to pull may hair out- then decided to leave it tucked in.  And now Im debating cutting my hair off!!  Its always fun to change your hair!!  Only problem is that after awhile I end up wanting it long again…

Also these shoes are easy to walk in with the platform heel, go with everything, and they’re on sale!!!  Sizes are going quick so I lined another pair…

Thanks for stopping in!!!!!   xx L

Being a single mom of 3 boys makes it hard to travel the world! Ofcourse its well worth it!!  I will one day =)  But for now stay-cations are where its at!!

Like when we went to the Surf And Sand Resort in Laguna Beach, CA.  Its one of my favorite places- its always had a special little place in my heart.  I love that its literally on the sand and you can walk steps from the pool to the beach.  I also love the cozy charm of the smaller resort.

And on to important things like what I wore while we were there!! =)  xx L

Spring weather drives me crazy!!  =)  Ofcourse I love spring, its a beautiful time of year- but does anyone else struggle with how to dress?!  One day its cold, next day its hot!!  I feel like every time I get ready for cool weather after seeing its overcast I end up sweating and then I dress for hot weather and end up freezing!!  So Ive learned that cardi’s are my best friend- along with ventilated jeans haha 😉

With that being said this card is perfect!!  And how pretty is the color?! Love!!  It comes in black also if you’re in the market for a black one…  Ive been wearing this grey tee all the time- its so soft and its on sale!!!!  These are a great pair of lighter-washed skinny jeans with the busted knee… I feel like a broken record but these shoes and this bag are obviously favorites of mine!!  I wear this combo all the time!!  They just seem to go with everything!!

Thanks for stopping by!

We are so happy about warmer temps, sunshine, shorts, and dresses!!  We live for this time of year!!  Today we went down by the beach to meet friends for ice-cream and walk on the pier.  Its been sooooo nice out!!  Its hot but not too hot- just how I like it!!

We unintentionally matched- I swear!! =)  Maybe I do it subconsciously, probably!!  Im lovin his distressed denim- just how his mama like her denim!  They’re perfect for pairing a t-shirt or button down shirt.  Speaking of button down shirt- how cute is this multi-color pineapple one my little buddy is wearing?!  Its crisp and white with those adorable pineapples, I love it!!  He wore it to church last sunday with colored pants so Im all about versatile pieces you can get plenty of wear from!  His little Toms are my fav pair of shoes he has right now- one word… velcro!!  Haha!!  Plus they’re super cute!! I had a hard time deciding between these and his white Chucks but he picked these- I linked the white converse too because they’re always a great go-to.  Oh and lets not forget about my dress!!! I feel like Im wearing a nightgown its so dang comfortable!!  Chambray and embroidery- plus its lined- win/win!!  We shopped at Bloomingdales for all of it and couldn’t be happier!!

Im so excited to share some of my favorite gifts to give and get with you!!  As a mom and daughter, Mother’s Day is a special day for me!!  Ofcourse Im good with hand-picked flowers, quality time, and lots of love… but getting a nice gift that Ill use is always fun too!!  I love getting my mom something nice to let her know how much we all appreciate her too.  I always get her something I love and use myself so that I know she’ll love it!

Ok, this is my favorite candle!!  It smells sooooo good and looks so pretty too!  I give it as a gift all the time!!  I even buy a couple at a time so that I have one when a friend’s birthday comes up!  I’m sensitive to fragrances on my body so I dont wear perfume often, but when I do this the only one I wear!!  My 2 favorite scents are linked!!  This is my favorite eyeshadow palette and its great for everyone!  These earrings are perfect for anyone!!  I love them!!  Im pretty sure anybody would love to receive any of these!

All of these favorites are from Nordstrom- which is great because they have everything we need and free shipping!!  We all probably need to get our orders in soon- Mother’s Day is in a 2 weeks!  If you’re a mother I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day and feel loved!!  Or enjoy this day with your mama!!

Wrap Bikini x Kimono

April 27, 2017

Every girl needs a black go-to bikini, right?!  I feel like they do!!  And this is “the one”!!  The fit is so so good and flattering- its not too skimpy yet certainly not frumpy!!  I love the way the top wraps around the front and ties in the back for a cute criss-cross look and support.  The bottoms are just the right amount of coverage- I can’t do the ones that leave it all hangin out!!  =)  But some full coverage bottoms dont make by bum look very cute if ya know what I mean!!  So I love these bottoms!!  You can mix and match colors if you want a two-toned suit or go for one of the other colors it comes in!!

So now can we talk about this kimono and hat?!  If you’re gonna buy a beach hat this summer it has to be this one!!  Every blogger has it haha!!  Which is a sign its a good one!!  Its affordable and looks so cute on, you’ll be wearing it all summer long!!  This kimono is such a great buy also!! Its such a cute coverup or you can wear it with a tank top and jeans/cutoffs- I love it!!!  You can’t see my flip flops but they’re the best flip flops you’ll ever own, Ive had a few pairs over the last several years and they last forever, so comfortable.  You might already have a pair- but never hurts to have more!  I have a pair sitting by my front door and another by my garage door!  I found all of these pieces at Nordstrom!!  Nordstrom never fails me!!  =)

Mother’s Day Dress

April 27, 2017

Click picture to shop!!

 

Mother’s Day is around the corner!!  The older I get the faster holidays seem to creep up on me- its just a couple of weeks away!!

My boys asked me what I wanted and I gave them the same answer I always give them on my birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas, etc…  ” I just want to spend time with you and lots of love and hugs!!”  =)  They smile and then say “no really, what should we get you?!”  I honestly love when they just pick flowers or make a macaroni necklace and card at school- I keep them all!!  But this year I have been in a rut with church dresses!!  I have been rotating the same 4 dresses it feels like so I really wanted something I could throw on and feel pretty in for church or even a baby/bridal shower.  This dress from Nordstrom could not be more perfect!!  I love the white, delicate flower appliqué, bell sleeves, the length, everything!!  Its just beautiful!!  It comes in both regular and petite sizes too.  Im so excited about my early Mother’s Day gift- Im thinking about getting one for my mom too!!

I feel like jewelry is always a great gift for the mama in your life- especially when its personalized.  I think it makes someone feel special when you put their initial on it!!  So Ive picked out a few pieces- a couple of them I have and love- for you to shop!!  Ive also listed a few other dresses that I was looking at for my mom- for you to wear on Mother’s Day or give to your mom!!  I am putting together a post with some other ideas for the special day coming up soon so stay tuned!
