REVIEW : Best Jean Shorts for Summer

REVIEW : Best Jean Shorts for Summer

Hi friends!  I’m super pumped about today’s blog post because it’s all about JEAN SHORTS!  You might be wondering why the topic of jean shorts gets me so excited- well, it’s because jean shorts are what I actually wear most often in my everyday life. I’m a work from home mom and Houston is hot and humid from now until November, so jean shorts are the easiest thing to throw on!

Even on days when I pull myself together and wear something cute to step out of the house in, lots of times when I return, I throw on my favorite jean shorts.

One day closer to the weekend friends!  With Spring in full swing and Summer quickly approaching, I’ve found 6 fantastic dresses that I’d consider Must Haves for these warm weather seasons! They are all priced right and several are on big time sale so I wanted to share today!

There’s three maxi dresses: a solid tank maxia t-shirt drawstring waist maxi; and a striped maxi and cute sundresses in three varieties: racerbackruffled; and swing!

Happy Friday!!  I can’t send you into the weekend without wishing you a wonderful Mother’s Day!  I’m blessed to have the best mom around and am looking forward to spoiling her for who she is and everything she does for us!  It’s been a few rough years for her and our family since losing my Dad, but being able to have her here with Jordan has been the biggest blessing all the way around.  I really think it’s helped heal her heart and we love getting to spend so much time with her. ♥

For our Mother’s Day,

Thank you so much for giving Shannon such a warm welcome yesterday!  She’s definitely feeling the love and I knew y’all would like getting to know her!  We popped in on Stories yesterday, so check that out for a mini Q&A!

Also, thank you for letting me know that you haven’t been getting my blog emails and bloglovin’ posts since April 30.  I’m so sorry! #love/hatetechnology! There’s a tech issue that we’re working hard to get fixed ASAP, but #itscomplicated.  This is exactly one of those things where I’m like,

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Are y’all having a good week?! Mine’s been busy and productive!  I made yesterday a GSD (Get Sh*t Done) Day and I love those!  Nothing like knocking out your To Do list and getting things accomplished to make you feel great!  Even those nagging things like vacuuming/cleaning out the bathroom drawers and getting all the hair out of your brushes (the chore I hate most! #gag!!!)  Don’t you agree??

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS

But, today we’re looking ahead to fun things like Mother’s Day!  It’s in less than two weeks!! I’m all for celebrating my wonderful Mom who deserves so much more than words or gifts could ever express!

Well, just as we’re approaching the end of the week, I’m finally starting to feel like I’ve got my life together!  It takes some time after traveling, right?!  I did a poll on Stories asking if y’all felt the same way and I was so happy to hear that it’s not just me! I always feel so bad for taking forever to get back on track!

That grocery store online order & pickup + crockpot combo yesterday was a lifesaver!  Have you ever tried that? And now James has parent/teacher conferences so that means school ends at noon today and tomorrow!

Work . Weekend . Wow | How to Style A White Blazer with Shorts & Jeans

Hi friends!! Every day I’m feeling better and better which reminds me to never take our health for granted! We tend to do that sometimes, right?!  When everything is going great, we don’t think about it. But when we feel bad, it’s like the world is falling apart!  I feel like I’m finally accepting that I’m one of those people that just needs extra cushion when I travel.  Aside from getting sick, it always stresses me out all the planning and preparing for the trip and then the extra work and catching up when you get home.  I admire people who can get up and go so much more easily than I can!

Hi friends and happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I’m recovering from a terrible stomach bug, and I’m praying today is much better than yesterday!  And that no one else in my fam gets it!  #fingerscrossed

Today is a new one for me, I’m used to scouring the stores and sales and putting together outfit options for you, but this time, Trunk Club, which is a Nordstrom Company, styled me for a change!  Someone must be wise to how much I shop there and I got an offer to try the Trunk Club and review it on my blog.

Affordable New Spring Finds!

Affordable New Spring Finds!

Today it’s all about fun looks for Spring, think gingham and vibrant stripes, from a place you might have overlooked! I tend to fall into the camp of ordering things from the same few places because it’s easy and I’m familiar with those sites and their customer service, however, I’ve gotten requests to add new retailers into the mix, so today’s post is for YOU!

Today is all about affordable (and stylish!) head to toe looks from JCPenney! If it’s been a while since you’ve shopped there, I urge you to take a second look!

We had such a nice bonus day off school yesterday and spent the day running around town, eating lunch and doing a little shopping with the kiddos and my mom! Our weather has been glorious lately, so it was nice to enjoy the sunshine outside and feel like we were playing hooky on Monday!  Look how happy Jordan was to find this tent! It’s got my brain swirling with ideas for her big girl room! But first, we gotta finish our master bedroom– and James!

Hello and welcome back friends! I hope you had a glorious Easter weekend!  Ours was so nice! The kids woke up to Easter baskets on Sunday morning and eggs hidden by the Easter bunny!

In their Easter baskets were a book for each of them (Llama Llama books are popular for little kids and James is all about geography lately), some toys, a new swimsuit, and a bit of candy.  What do you put in your kids’ baskets?

Anyone with young kids knows it can be a challenge to get everyone ready and out the door at a certain time,

Weekend Style | Day to Night

Hello friends!  I’m so happy to be home after being away for Spring Break and then home for just three days before heading out again!  This time, I went to Austin for a blog conference and what I always enjoy most about them is hanging out with my friends that I don’t get to see on a regular basis.  So many of my ‘blogger friends’ are actually real-life friends, but we don’t live in the same city, so we’re always communicating via social media and on the phone.  It’s the best to get to hang out in person for a change!

Happy Friday friends!  I’m waking up in Austin this morning no closer to solving any Facebook puzzles, but at least I’m having a good time catching up with friends!  Thank you SO much for letting me know you like my new fashion series: Work • Weekend • Wow!   Getting your feedback is so appreciated!

In these WWW posts, I’ll show you multiple ways to wear an item for different types of occasions; specifically, work, weekend and a night out (wow).  I know we all like to get the most out of our clothes by mixing and matching with other things in our closet and also get the most bang for our buck.

And just like that, I’m off again for a couple days for a blog conference in Austin, this time to try to figure out the puzzle that is Facebook when trying to use it to promote your blog!  I hope I learn a few things and I’ll be sure to report back!  But, the cool thing is, I get to meet up with my buddies Cassie and Sheaffer for some fun girl time! You know it’s always a hoot with these girls! I swear, I wish I was funny but at least I know when to laugh!

Wow, yesterday was definitely a manic Monday!  When we got home late on Sunday night, even though I was tired, I made sure the kitchen was all clean, unpacked ALL the suitcases and put all the dirty clothes outside the laundry room, and made a to-do list for Monday so I could wake up a little ahead of the game. It took awhile, but all the laundry is done, folded, and put away! A major feat!  But, I have to stay on top of it because I’m heading out of town again Thursday for a blog conference.

2 DARLING RUFFLE DRESSES

Hi friends!  I’m getting this post ready to go before we leave for Spring Break, but by the time you’re reading it we’ll be either: 1) having the time of our lives, or 2) wondering whether we lost our minds bringing a two year-old skiing!  I hope it’s #1!!  We began this with week with two flirty eyelet Spring dresses and we’re ending the week with two fun ruffle dresses!  I guess I’m really getting in the spirit of Spring with these dresses lately and it’s also a great way to show off a spray tan after way too long with a pasty white body!

Good Monday morning friends! Today kicks off our Spring Break week and I’ve been knee deep in laundry, packing, shopping and organizing all weekend! I swear it takes a small army to get a family ready to go out of town for a few days and I’ve found myself questioning more than once this weekend if it’s really worth it! Do you do that too?! Well, the trip is on and I know once we get there I’ll be so happy we went, it’s just lots of prep work on the front end!

Even though we’re headed to the cold and snow,

White Jeans REVIEW WINNERS

Wasn’t yesterday’s Style-A-Friend post with Ali-Shaun so fun?!  She is such a great sport to participate and I know your kind comments and compliments really made her feel good! Maybe if I bribe her, she’ll come back and make another appearance?! It was actually easy finding things she looked great in and I want to take her to more stores!

Is it too early to start talking about white jeans?!  I hope not because I’ve dedicated this entire post to them! I tried on about 15 pairs to help take the guesswork out of shopping for white jeans and I really hope this post is helpful!
