Swingy Tops


I certainly never dress for the weather because I literally melted in this outfit.  Melted.  But it's okay because as soon as I sat at my desk, I froze.  Froze as in freezing.  I know I talk about the weather a lot but it literally occupies a lot of time in my head.  It's so flipping hot so swingy sleeveless tops are now my jam.  I want a million of them and then more.  I spotted some more sleeveless tops at Target over the weekend so I may buy every single color and convince myself that tank tops are office appropriate because I'm not totally convinced yet.  Riveting stuff here.  It's the heat.  The heat is making me cray...and boring.

Weekend Photo Diary: 4th of July


We had such a great three day weekend that I am getting sad it's over as I type this post.  My husband and I had Friday off so I got a haircut while Lucas napped and afterwards we went for a Target run, of course.  On Friday night, we went with my parents to a fireworks show that the town I live in does every year.  This is the first year we have gone with Lucas and I was anxious to see how he would react to the noise.  As you can tell in the picture below, he loved it!  He kept looking up and saying WOW!  Now, I want to take him back to Disneyworld to see the fireworks show probably in a couple weeks.  We even gave him a sparkler for a hot second, literally, because, of course, he wanted to touch the fire.  Our favorite part of the show is when the orchestra starts playing the official songs for our armed forces and asks for those who have served to stand while their song played.  My dad always stands with pride when the Army song plays as he proudly served the army for ten years.  Lucas strangely stood when the Navy song played and when it was over, he sat back down.  Maybe he's foreshadowing the future.  Sunday was a relaxed day and we hit the pool early then did a little shopping afterwards.  I'm so sad the weekend is over but I definitely feel rested for the work week.  Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Trust Me


It's best that neck up not be shown.  I may or may not have gone to work with wet hair...it was one of those mornings.  Luckily, I did not have any meetings and it was just a day working at my desk.  I'm patiently waiting for someone to invent a machine where I can step in two minutes before I need to head out the door and it will dress me and do my hair and makeup.  One day.

What I Wish I Wore Poolside

1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5  /  6

Do you ever see pictures on instagram or actual people in person that look so put together and cutesy at the pool?  Yeah, that's not me but I wish it was!  I'd love to try to make more of an effort especially since we're going to the beach soon.  I'll be picking up some cuter options so I don't look like an awkward sloppy mess poolside!

Outfits That Didn't Make It


Here's how this conversation went:

Me: [to husband] Can you take my picture?
Him: You want it for your blog?
Me: Yes.  Why do I look like crap?  Because I'm real.  This is how I really dress. [clearly, I'm not dramatic.]
Him: I mean okay.

Since I assumed my photographer was not inspired, I took pics with my iphone instead.  Note to self, must get new mirror and keep little toddler boy hands off of it.  

The picture below shows one of my birthday gifts from my husband!  It's a Tory Burch bag that doubles as a diaper bag since it's nylon fabric.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Although I also love my Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag, since my baby boy is now a toddler, I don't have much of a need to always have all of the things.  However, I still carry with me diapers, wipes, snacks, drinks, and toys so I wanted something that was nice enough to wear on its own and also carry my toddler necessities.  Tis love!

Running Late


What happens when my alarm clock (aka Lucas) decides to sleep in and doesn't give me my screaming wake up call?  I end up wearing slouchy clothes, very minimal makeup, and what somewhat resembles a ponytail.  Oh, and since I was already late, I obviously decided to take pictures to blog about it of course.  You cannot pay me enough to take these sunglasses off.  Trust that I am doing you a favor.
