Stone Harbor 2021

This past week we spent with our toes in the sand in Stone Harbor, NJ with our dear friends. We typically visit every year and it truly feels like a second home the second we pull into town. We have a routine, know the local spots we like to hit and enjoy every bit of […]

Early Summer Vibes

Laid back, put together style feels like my go-to lately. Regardless of the season, my day-to-day typically allows for casual dress, yet at the same time, I like to feel as though I put a touch of effort into my outfits. Playing around with color combos and various materials are two ways to to do […]

Loving Lately: Rifle Paper Co.

When it comes to pretty and unique items for myself or a gift, Rifle Paper Co. is one place I’ve always turned to. Their bold and beautiful designs are striking to me and can turn any ordinary item, like an umbrella or a lunch box for example, into something eye catching. They started out with […]

Flutter Sleeves

School’s out for summer rin our household! Granted, we still have to wrap up dance with a recital and soccer with one more game, but no more homework or having to pull kids out of bed for now :) Swim team starts this week and it’s been such a great experience with my older two […]

Outdoor Living Inspiration

With Memorial Day upon us and summer just around the corner my guess is many of you have already begun spending more hours outdoors. Each year I tweak our back porch a little bit and it becomes more and more inviting to both our family and our guests. Seating is a great place to start. […]

Loft Try-On

I popped into Loft the other day to see what new arrivals had come in and have some of my favorites to share with you today. Their current sale gives you 50% off three or more pieces, 40% off two pieces or 30% off of one. These pieces are more on the casual side this […]

Sunrise / Sunset

The days are growing longer and longer and although I may not often see that sunrise, I appreciate the growing lateness of the sunset each day. As we continue to wait for the summer heat to creep in, summer sweaters like this one have become my go-to. I’ve also been pairing this one with these […]

Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day was extra special as I shared the day with my baby turning 6 years old! It was the best excuse to gather our families and have one big celebration. These three kids fill our house with joy and laughter…and noise, lots and lots of noise! But I know without a doubt that […]

Loving Lately: One Piece Swimsuits

When it comes to swimsuits, I’m a one piece gal. I don’t love my post baby stomach (but I do love the fact that it gave me three beautiful children), and I find one-pieces to be more comfortable overall. Plus, the options keep getting better and better. I had a difficult time narrowing down my […]
