• Summer Fashion: One Piece Swimsuits

    Okay! Sorry for the pause in posts, I needed a bit of a breather! Those 3+ months of Covid Quarantine really caught up with me and I just hit a wall! (I spoke about that here) It is officially Summer so let’s focus on some fun and relaxation! We are overdue here for a fashion post and swimsuits are a pivotal part of Summer fashion! Focusing on one pieces… I want something that is fashionable but still appropriate for chasing kids, building sand castles and jumping in the water! I just ordered #15 and am contemplating #4 , I have heard it is the BEST suit!    1. / 2.…

  • Week Twelve Coronavirus Hiatus & May Favorites… 2020

    Week Twelve. Things are shifting. Now in this Phase One stage restaurants are offering outside dining, fitness studios are reopening as are stores slowly with restrictions in place. It feels hopeful… I think, as a family, we will continue to hibernate a little longer and dip our toes in the water with caution in the coming weeks. There is still so much unknown about the virus, particularly in children, and it seems that the information changes daily. That said, as the country was starting to reopen last week, there was a happening that is anything but hopeful. The death of a George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd and what…

  • The White Tee Shirt

    Ah, the white tee shirt. Much like a pair of jeans (or denim cutoffs), it can be hard to find a good one. You don’t want it to be see-through, but also don’t want it to be too thick. Slightly slouchy, soft and definitely comfortable; that is what you want! I did a round up of a few white tees that I have and love and also ones that look like they would be great! I just ordered two new white tees from Everlane (#1) and am super impressed with the quality and the fit! I also love #2 from Lululemon. I don’t have this exact Gap tee (#5), but…

  • Easy Cotton Dresses

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I always consider this the kick off of Summer, although this looks quite different for us this year. This will be the first Memorial Day in a very long time I won’t be spending it in RI with family and friends. Bizarre and a real bummer! Regardless, we are still going to make it a fantastic low key weekend here. The kick off of Summer has me thinking more and more about my summer closet (and packing for the big trip to RI) and what I really want to be wearing on those hot Summer days. Cotton. I’ve become pickier about fabrics, and the Summer definitely…

  • Week Nine Coronavirus Hiatus: Warmer Weather At Home Fashion

    Alright. Let’s be honest. Who thought this was going to last this long? And even when the Stay At Home orders are lifted, life isn’t going back to “normal”. Those gorgeous Spring dresses in my closet aren’t going out to dinner. That said, the weather is changing, and sometimes something as little as new pair of shorts can lift one’s spirit. Make you feel fresh. So as we head into Week Nine I don’t have any great words of wisdom (I ran out of those weeks ago) but I do have some fun new picks for warm weather casual at home fashion. (Say that five times fast). That means cotton,…

  • What To Wear For Thanksgiving 2019

    Thanksgiving is a little over two weeks away! Do you know what you are wearing? I don’t! We are headed to my in-laws this year and despite my propensity to over plan and pack (way) ahead I can barely wrap my head around Thanksgiving being in 2 weeks! I love dressing up a bit for the holiday. We always used to when I was little and it seems like putting on your best clothes honors what a special day it is. Gathering with friends and family, taking a breath and taking note of how much you have to be grateful and thankful for. So here are some ideas of what…

  • The Best Little Knit Blazer Styled 3 Ways

    I purchased this little J Crew knit blazer this Spring and adore it! It seems to go with everything, is light enough that I don’t get hot but it also keeps me warm on chilly days. The original pink that I have is sold out in a few sizes but the camel is a great option and available in sizes xxxs-3x; so I will use that color to style the blazer into three different outfits!
