Hello hello! I hope your week is off to a good start! I’m sharing some recent fashion favorites today, but before I do I wanted to let you know that this cute little patio set I put on our outdoor deck last summer is back in stock! It sold out quickly last year and I kept getting questions about it so I wanted to mention that it’s back. :)
Adding a little furniture set to our back upstairs deck last summer was so rewarding! We’ve used our deck more this past year than we did in the 7 previous years we’ve lived in this house. Our deck still looks like this other than the pillows are a little sun faded and minus the real flowers of course. Those babies are long gone. Ha.
You can tell how much we’ve loved this space by Kole’s expression in the picture above. Actually I don’t know what you can tell by Kole’s expression in the picture above. Is he happy? Sad? Laughing? Crying? Trying not to spit out his drink? Thinking his drink is too sour? One of life’s mysteries we may never know.
What we do know is that it’s clearly time to move on to fashion. (I really need to stop writing my posts after 11 pm..)
You all know my deep love for graphic tees and this strawberry tee that recently showed up on my doorstep is too cute for words! I always want to put it on because it’s just happy. Like a summer day.
I’ve been loving these cute slides and they are perfect with skirts, shorts, jeans, graphic tees.. any and everything.
They also work great with my every day purse that holds all the things so winning there. :) *Purse organization details here.
This is the other graphic tee I recently ordered (I think I shared these in a collage a post or two back?). Keeping real plants alive? Not my thing. Wearing plants on graphic tees? Totally my thing. :)
I’ve already worn this twice this week! Felt ok about it since I mixed up the jeans. Ha. Here are a few other Anthro graphic tees I’m pinning over below..
As soon as our sun decides to peek out (so cool and cloudy lately!) I’ll be sporting my suit with this cute romper over it. Just like a good graphic tee I’ve never met a black romper I didn’t love. :) Zella is a go-to brand for me in the summer. I really like their leggings, shorts, jackets, tanks, sports bras. GOOD stuff for exercise and lounge wear.
These are the Zella joggers I wear the most and they are back in stock!
I have two pairs of them in black because I wear them so often and just ordered the grey. I’ve shared this crop henley before but it’s another item that has been on repeat.
I linked all of my Zella favorites below.. most of these I own and love!
This flutter sleeve dress is another fun and easy to slip on item for summer. It comes in lots of colors/patterns and could be worn dressy with heels or casual with flip-flops.
I’ve always loved flutter sleeves! This blouse is beautiful and I always get compliments on it when I wear it. Like the flutter sleeve dress it also comes in other colors and patterns.
Do you have a “just got out of the shower” outfit? Because I do and it’s these moonlight pjs. :) They are so soft and comfy! I always put them on when I get out of the shower while I get ready. I’ve never liked going straight from the shower to my clothes. Especially if I need to blow dry my hair. Drying my hair is a process (which is why it usually happens only twice a week) and I like to be in something cool and comfy. Obviously these are great summer pjs too but if you haven’t tried a “just got out of the shower” designated outfit to get ready in, I would highly recommend both the ritual and these pjs. :)
Loving this flutter sleeve top for summer! It will be so cute with jean shorts too. (Still so cool and cloudy here!)
I wore it a couple of weeks ago with these white linen pants and felt so nautical. I instantly thought of What About Bob.. “Ahoy! I sail! I’m a sailor!” Ha. One of our favorites. :)
Floral tops are always fun this time of year and I almost didn’t order this because I don’t wear a lot of bright pink but I’m so glad I did! It’s beautiful.
I love the neck tie and feminine sleeves. It looks cute with a black pencil skirt too.
And last but not least is another recent favorite floral blouse. You can adjust the neck tie on this.. so cute for summer! It would look really good with white shorts too. Fashion is so fun this time of year isn’t it!?
Since I know you’re sick of seeing mirror selfies at this point (I certainly am!) I’ll share some pics from Mother’s Day I want to document. It’s one gift my kids give me every year.. a picture with no complaining. :)
I actually have one child who never complains about pictures. As soon as we finished a family shot she asked if we could get a picture with just the two of us.
“And can we shoot lots of different pics and see what we like best mom? Then you should take some with just El and just Kole too!”
Addison is so like me that sometimes it’s scary.
“Great idea Ad! Kole.. you’re up next. Come and get a picture with just me.”
I laughed out loud when I saw this pic. His face tells it all! I didn’t realize Kenny was snapping pics during our conversation. He got everything on camera..
Not feeling another picture with mom AT ALL and just wants to get out of his church clothes.
I know your smile is in there bud. It’s Mother’s Day. You can do this.
Suddenly realizes this is a great opportunity to bribe mom.
Evil laugh when after serious negotiating mom finally caves on extra iPad time.
Mutual smiles because we both got what we wanted.
And Ellie? “Ellie.. Ellie.. my sweet 17 year old.. where are you?”
Poof! Gone. No chance of another picture. Bribery isn’t even an option with that child. Good thing I know she loves me. ;)
Motherhood! It’s an adventure.
Every single day.
