I’m a firm believer that you when you feel your best, you look your best. I had rare afternoon solo so I hopped over to Nordstrom to try on a couple pieces that would work with my growing belly! I found this camisole top with cute laser cut for upcoming summer weekends. I also was happy I fit into this rose sleeveless body con maxi. So comfy!

1. Hat
7. Hobo Wallet I recently purchased this wallet and I’m obsessed. So much room!
I have had so many friends and followers message me about what to bring or buy to a warm weather getaway. Living in LA, and not being far from a beach or pool, here are some of my top picks and things in my beach bag. Don’t forget SPF, a good book, and leave your worries at the beach. I always bring my go-to cutoffs and a bunch of black and white tanks to mix and match.
 
Shop more swimsuits below. There are a lot on sale right now, like this stripe one-piece I just ordered, hurry up sizes are limited.
After all, they say, happiness comes in waves. Happy Friday!

What I’m Wearing

I’m not sure what I love more, long summer nights sipping wine on the porch or awesome bodysuits I can’t stop wearing Monday through Saturday. I’ve been wearing this ruffled one so much so, its embarrassing. Even hubby made a comment! It’s chic with jeans, a skirt or pleated pants. Here, I’m wearing it with a linen trench, distressed jeans and fall’s must-have red boots. I’m linking some of my favorites below. Hope you have a lovely Monday!

 

A bodysuit is a summer must-have that easily transitions to fall. And did I mention a bodysuit with an interesting back is even better? Here are some of my favorites:

 

Red boots are fall’s stunner, get them before they sell out during NYFW. I love them with denim or a punch of color paired with a monochromatic look:

 

I love a lightweight trench for layering casual or dressy looks. It’s an easy way to look “pulled together” without trying too hard.

 

What are some of your favorite layers?

Today is one of our favorite days of the year, watermelon, the smell of hamburgers on the grill, and a picnic at the park. I still can’t believe this marks our second summer in California. It has been a whirlwind, but I’m grateful for the endless summer and new friendships we have made here easing the distance from family. So grateful!

5 Things I love about Summer

1 the beach – a no brainer. Manhattan Beach is our favorite! 2 the pool is so chill and no sand clean-up! 3 cold drinks like kombucha and matcha with boba taste especially good when it’s super hot out. 4 Ice cream, we love scoops in Highland Park! 5 Dressing for 4th of July – I love all things red, white, and blue

5 Things I’m loving at Nordstrom Rack:

1 kids flipflops and shoes (A friend of mine told me Nordstrom Rack is the best value for kids shoes, and she was right! Stock up on snow boots)  2. Anything FRAME 3. VINCE 4. RAG & BONE 5. Denim Shorts

To highlight a fun stripe jacket, I like to keep it simple with all black. It’s way easier to highlight a new color and shape with a monochrome basics – $70 jeans, trusty tank and stripe jacket I love thats light enough for summer nights. Back to writing our summer bucket list because its already June 22nd! I can’t believe it. What’s your go-to summer look?

 

 

 

Who doesn’t love a good Summer top under $40?  I’m loving this floral off the shoulder top with bell sleeves. We brought all the kids to Nordstrom Rack for some tops for me and work pants for Reid. Miraculously, we only left with 4 impulse buys and one fidget spinner. I was so proud of ourselves. We celebrated over guac, chips and burritos. If you’re on the fence, both my tops I linked below are under $40, and at that price, I’m not stressing about the green tea I spilled on them.

I’m so excited to partner with Rebecca Minkoff as they launch their new line of watches! I chose this RM gold tone studded leather wrap watch – loved the double wrap because it looks most similar to jewelry. I paired my brown leather accessories with a white overall dress and white top I’m obsessed with because of its ruffle three-quarter sleeve. Such a great buy. See more RM Watches here! Have a great weekend, we’re excited to get back home to LA next week.

For one day, we can honor our dads and husbands. It’s a great time to send a card, a gift and if you’re long distance to your father, pick up the phone and call. Either way, a gift means a lot. Reid does so many things for our family, from working downtown all week, to helping spread out breakfast before he leaves, to always taking time for me and the kids. We love him so! Don’t forgot to honor our dads and husbands. Below is a list of things my hubby would love, approved by me, and I’m sure yours will love as well.
