Summer has already been crazy busy. Does anyone else find themselves “waiting” for it to start, when in reality it’s upon us and moving faster and faster every day?…Cory and I have had a lot of fun bringing Everett to my grandma’s pool, seeing friends, and endlessly balancing our hectic and never consistent schedules.
Summer also means Everett has been around for almost a year, which seems all too unreal. The past eleven months have been filled with ups and downs, the good outweighing the challenging. I’ve learned a lot. Sometimes I get mad at myself and know I can do better, as both a life partner and a mom, but that’s why each day is a fresh start.
On a lighter note, I’ve narrowed down my summer wardrobe to a few key pieces that work no matter what we’re doing. One of my favorite options is a simple maxi dress. I found this easy black floral piece at Forever 21 for around $25. [photos are linked to product]
Another go-to is a romper. I’ve got them in every style because they’re so EASY!
This rust-colored number comes from J. Crew Factory and has pockets (YES!) and is the right fabric to be dressed up or down. [photos are linked to product]
Finally, I want to mention my love JEWELRY! In all shapes and sizes, I’ve grown a new appreciation for uniquely crafted pieces. I especially like “212 West – the spoken life“… Their pieces are the perfect way to wear your heart on your sleeve–er, around your neck. I have two necklaces from their collection. They’re FUN and perfect for summer when I want to add a [literal] statement to my look. Plus, it’s always a joy knowing you’re supporting a MN company.
