Better late than never! How did Wednesday turn into such a crazy day? Oh wait...I know! Back-to-back phone calls since 8am would have something to do with it I presume. Ahhhhhhh!
It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly halfway through the summer, but it's time to talk back-to-school. Olivia and I had a great mommy/daughter date at Woodfield Mall this past weekend to start prepping for KINDERGARTEN. I know...and I am very close to tears so do not mess with this momma.
But first, we fuel up on carbs because we are serious shoppers, duh!
To help make sure shoppers are voted “most fashionable” in their class, Woodfield Mall’s more than 300 retailers are gearing up with the season’s hottest trends. And boy, did we hit the jackpot!
We started out at H&M where we got the majority of our loot followed by a quick visit to Guess for some skinny jeans. This girl has grown two inches and nothing, I mean nothing, fits her!
P/S I have no idea where she got the height from because her dad and I are vertically challenged.
We finished our shopping trip with a bite to eat at Nordstrom Cafe and a quick selfie because...
- two is better than one
- we had to pick some work shirts up for dad
- Nordstrom has great mirrors
Also duh, right?
Just look at all this cuteness! So many separates to mix and match in all their favorite colors!
Any pair of pants that has a bunny face applique on the knee is going home with us. Nothing to discuss...move along!
I'm so excited for my big girl to kick off the shool year in style and comfort. I highly recommend making a date with your littles for some QT time at Woodfield Mall before the homework hits. As Olivia so aptly put it, "Mom, this was the best day EVER!" I knew she would appreciate shopping just as much as I do!
Happy shopping! xo
The sales are abundant this weekend - be on high alert. Today, for a change of pace, I am rounding up my favorite Bauble Bar items...you know the ones that are in heavy weekly rotation. Good news, too - the majority of them are on mega sale this weekend so I've linked them below. 75% off! You cannot beat that with a stick!
Happy first day of Summer, friends! How sweet it is. I'm ready to embrace all the sunshine and make this a killer summer with my little family. Are you? Let's kick if off with some sizzling Summer fashion! I am all about sandals and breezy dresses as of late. Pants are for the birds so free those gams and scoop up this gorgeous pinstripe dress. Hurry while supplies last!
I've partnered with Woodfield Mall again but this time the focus has slightly shifted...we're talking all things DAD! Yes...even dear old dad deserves a day to himself. <don't we all?> The girls and I headed out last weekend to get our shop on and shopping we did, indeed, accomplish. Might I add that we took several 100 breaks for various reasons ranging from the bathroom to snacks to toy stores and beyond BUT we completed our mission.
Note to self: Train daughters to build some shopping stamina!
Let's shop eh? It's been awhile, right? I've been struggling to hit a rhythm with my blog posting schedule...perhaps even hobbling but I will deliver! I promise. I am so excited to enter a new season and in dire need of tops. Why is it we are always low on tops? Is it just me? No worries, I've found some great ones.
P/S Are you as obsessed with bow mules, loafers and sneakers, too? It's literally taking everything in me not to purchase a pair but that's what birthdays are for!
Okay, real talk. I never get to a spa. And that is not a complaint. I'm of the mindset that if I cannot relax at all - why spend the money? Heck, I can barely get through a no-chip manicure without tapping my toes and telling my manicurist to skip the hand massage complete with warm towel aromatherapy. Yeah, I'm that girl.
Spring is the yin and yang of fashion. It you live in Chicago, you might actually turn both the AC and the heat on within the same day. It's what inspired today's post -- 20 pieces to take you through transition weather. Blouses, denim, dresses and strappy heels. Some of my favorite items and ones that you should stock up on because they never go out of style. I find myself layering a lot during the season because you can always shed the layers = smart dressing!
If there's one thing you can count on me for...it's bringing you on-trend footwear for every season. I am shoe obsessed. Always have been...always will be. Which makes today's post most delightful as I am ready to embrace the cutest, embellished flats in the form of SANDALS!
Doesn't it seem like everyone is in Mexico? I swear. Envious...a bit but hey, Spring is right around the corner and I'm feeling it big time. Maxis, tanks, sandals and more...today's round up is Spring Break inspired and if you're jumping on a plane to jet set to the nearest pearly, white beach - get on this shopping list muy pronto.
If there is one thing I love, it's little girls in Easter dresses. There's nothing sweeter. But, sometimes momma needs a new dress, too! #amiright? Not to worry, I selected five sweet but tasteful dresses that fit the bill no matter if you're hosting or brunchin' out.
Fun fact: I fell in love with SPIN classes starting in January. It's a welcome change up to my at-home workouts. Another fun fact: my calves have grown and all my jeans are tight in the calf. Who does this happen to? Me…of course.
