Fireworks

Fourth of July is by far my favorite holiday. BBQs food, fireworks popping from every direction, pool parties, and s’mores are just a few reasons I LOVE fourth of July. Hope everyone has a safe one. How will you be celebrating?

Newport & Gavin is One Month!

This past weekend, we did our annual Newport, Rhode Island trip & celebrated Gavin’s one month birthday!  It was a great weekend full of shopping, New England seafood (such as lobster grilled cheese & burger topped with lobster meat!) beautiful sunsets, and catching up with family.

Perfect Pearls

I am a huge fan of big, bold costume jewelry but nothing compares to classic, quality jewelry like these amazing freshwater pearl earrings from Laguna Pearl. There is something so delicate about the perfect pair of pearl earrings that makes any outfit a little more classy.  I wore a very casual outfit I threw together for running some errands with Gavin and putting on these earrings instantly dressed up the look.

Trend Alert: High Waist Bottoms

It started with the “mom jeans,” the total antithesis of hip-huggers which were my go-to jeans in my teen years. At first, it took a while for mom jeans to grow on me, however, designers have really perfected the high-waist style to create a clean, crisp look. What I love about high-waisted shorts, jeans, and skirts is:
1. They accentuate your curves in the right places and keep everything into place. There is nothing falling out in the wrong places so they are super flattering.

2. I love crop tops! But I just had a babe so… high-waisted pants are the perfect solution if you want to where those adorable crop tops without showing a lot of tummy. Problem solved!

3. They elongate your legs. I am only 5’2 so I need all the help I can get. If you tuck in your shirt or pull off a crop top, the extra fabric that shows gives the illusion of longer, leaner legs. I’m sold!
