Navy Lace

While on the hunt for a new shirt and tie for my husband, I managed to come home with a new top and cuff for myself. I can’t help it, walking into TJMaxx is like sending a kid into a candy store! This top was too pretty and priced too well to pass by. And […]

Linguine with Summer Veggies and Goat Cheese

Today I’m sharing a dish that I recently tried from Real Simple. I love pasta and goat cheese and with the addition of some fresh summer veggies it seemed like a no brainer. This dish could serve as your meal, but in my house we served it as a side to some grilled chicken. I […]

8 of My Summer Go-To’s

We’re about half way through summer and although I’m expecting to start seeing the ‘back to school’ ads any day now, I plan on ignoring them all and continue to embrace the summer months. Today I’m sharing with you the items that I have been turning to over and over again. Most of my time […]

Summer Wedding

My closet isn’t full of designer clothing, but when I am able to find a bargain from a designer I love, I jump on it. I happened to snag this Trina Turk dress at a shop in Hoboken, NJ a few years ago. I didn’t have any immediate plans for it at the time, but […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! Coming off of the 4th of July weekend this week continued to feel like a whirlwind. My husband was away in NY for a few days so the kids and I got to share plenty of one on one time (as if we don’t already!) There was plenty of park and pool time […]

Hot Summer Days

With a hint of a tan going on and some hot humid weather, I’ve found myself turning to white quite often recently. I love the elements of interest that the stripes and buttons add to the sailor shorts but I knew I still needed a pop which is why I threw on this coral crossbody. […]

Blackened Chicken and Cilantro Lime Quinoa

¬†With two young children to feed, there’s always a fine line between adding too much spice (for them) and not having enough flavor (for us). When I found this recipe that I was eager to try, I simply prepared the kids’ chicken on the mild side and went full on for my husband and myself. […]

T-shirt dress

What’s better than finding a casual, versatile, t-shirt dress that can be worn in a variety of ways? When it only costs $29, that’s what! I knew I’d love this Joe Fresh dress the second I saw it hanging in the store and I was right. Not only is it navy, one of my favorite […]

The Weekender

Along with summer come beach vacations¬†where our SUV is typically filled to the brim. In addition to those week long trips I’m sure many of you have a handful of weekend trips scattered throughout the next few months. What’s nice about these mini getaways is that you can pack fairly lightly, at least in comparison […]

High Five for Friday

It’s here, July 4th, Independence Day, and the day I realize that summer is flying by! Summer is certainly not relaxing with two little ones, but we sure are enjoying ourselves! We’re getting as much pool time in as we can and doing our best to dodge the thunderstorms that have been passing by this […]
