56 Things To Do With Kids This Summer

56 Things To Do With Kids This Summer

Thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

How’s your summer going friends? I can’t believe we’re already to the end of June! It feels like summer is going so fast! I am sleeping in about an hour later than usual, but I still have a little morning time to myself before the house wakes up. James has been in camp for the last three weeks, but we’ve already managed to pack so much fun into this summer.

For some of us, it can be hard to find things for the kids to do all day without resorting to mind-numbing video games,

Style Saturday {A Hair Affair}

Style Saturday {A Hair Affair}

If I added up all the time I’ve spent washing, drying, curling, styling, spraying, cutting, coloring, discussing, obsessing, loving, hating, and debating my hair, surely it would add up to  . . . more time than I care to admit.  I’ve had all lengths (mostly long) and all colors (mostly blonde) over the years.   Each style tells a story. December 2007 (long, blonde).  Just married and oh, so in love! May 2008 (short, blonde).  Ready for a “change” and chopped it to my shoulders. June 2009 (medium, brunette).  Getting tired of appointments with the colorist and decided it would be better to just do a solid brunette to avoid all that maintenance.

Style Saturday {A Tale of Two Wedding Dresses}

Style Saturday {A Tale of Two Wedding Dresses}

Did you watch Bethenny Getting Married?  I did, and I loved it!  I loved how happy Bethenny and Jason are and how witty and funny she is.  Isn’t Jason the best?  So kind and sincere.  And baby Bryn!   I guess I’m all melty and sappy about babies now that I have a little one.  I thought Bethenny looked gorgeous all season, and especially in her wedding dress- pregnant and all!  I hear the dress was an an Amsale’s Kenneth Poole called “Romantic.”   It had a ruched satin bodice with Swarovski crystal beading at the empire waist with a bustled skirt.

I love, love, love Michael Kors designs.  Especially his watches and handbags.  Since recently becoming a stay-at-home-mom, I’ve certainly been doing more admiring than acquiring.  But that’s okay, I can still appreciate the beauty!  I’m dying over the new camo handbags!   *all images via Michael Kors.

Style Saturday {Accessories Under $50}

Style Saturday {Accessories Under $50}

I am a girl who loves accessories, especially when I find them at a good price.  Makes me so happy!  I find that I often favor the accessories that I bought at the discount stores and then wear them more because I don’t feel too “precious” with them.  Here are a few great pieces I found, all for under $50, from various sources like Nordstrom, InStyle, Piperlime, and Bebe.

Who doesn’t look good in a maxi dress?  I love it because it’s so easy to wear and hides those last 10 pounds of baby weight:)  Pair it with flat sandals or wedges.  Here are some fabulous ones I recently spotted:

Style Saturday: Fabric and Floral Necklaces

Necklaces and babies sometimes don’t go so well together, but, when I get a chance (maybe on a future date night, hint, hint to hubby), I’d love to don some floral and/or fabric necklaces like these this summer:

Style Saturday: Wedges

Style Saturday:  Wedges

I love wedge sandals for summer.  For starters, I’m really short (5’1) so I love the height they give.  Plus, they are generally more comforable than heels and dressy enough for me to wear to work.  I’ve literally worn these everyday to work since I went back from maternity leave (I have them in gold and silver so they go with everything).
