My new favorite dress.

My new favorite dress.

I referenced Lolla earlier this week and today I'm sharing what I actually wore. This dress has become a fast favorite. I adore the ruffles. It's girlie but universal enough to wear for everyday and as the heat index gave way...I was cool as a cucumber. I realize that sneaks aren't the most obvious choice, and in some ways I didn't care all that much because I knew I was going to get trampled, but now that I think of it -- they kind of work!

We loved loved loved this week's Brightly Book: We're All Wonders. It explores the differences in all of us which came at a tremendous time as my girls have been incredibly inquisitive about hair color, skin color and beyond. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:

One can never have too many white tops. They are a closet staple for me and not all are created equal either. This breezy number is $20 and comes in pink, too. Thinking I may need to acquire the second version. It's forgiving on hot days and the days when you had a bit too much to eat. I wore it in Mexico with shorts and I've already worn it back home with white trousers. It's really a steal of a top and I'm loving the texture. For a more modest look you could pair a white cami with it but I've been wearing it without and feel completely comfortable.

6 things to do with your girlfriends before summer ends!

Summer is coming to a bittersweet end and I have to tell you that it's been a great one. My family and I experienced and did so much this year. Slightly exhausting but definitely more exhilarating as blogging has afforded us some really great experiences that will forever be a part of our memory book.

Having that said, I am sharing SIX fantastic things to do with your girlfriends before the Labor Day flags wave. Yes, there's still time!

Another day, another OTS top. I'm a one trick pony this summer. Fully aware but who can resist? I'm a sucker for details and those sleeves are just too too good. Speaking of too too good, my top is a whopping $13 and I've linked it below along with similar options that rank pretty high in the cute category!

We are through and through a Seuss family. I was so excited when my girls quickly adopted this author's books into their little bedroom libraries. And let's be honest...they are an easy read on the days when you've been put through the ringer in life and as a parent. I am nothing if I am not brutally honest!
