I love red white and blue fashion. It is one of my favorite things about summer. I love these colors put together, I love showing my love for my country (no matter the state of our politics) and I love finding adorable fashion that doesn’t break the bank. I picked over 50 Memorial Day outfit ideas and most (not all) are under $50. There are a few that I really wanted to include that are a little over $50 but everything is definitely well under $100.

Today I thought it would be fun to share a few things I have bought recently and a few things that we have been gifted for my Friday Favorites. I feel like we had so many things come in the mail this week and it was so exciting. I couldn’t wait to show you guys everything! So, here are some of this week’s Friday Favorites:

I’m done. I found my dress for the season. This tee dress is so gorgeous, amazing quality and I love all of the little details. The entire back of this adorable dress, buttons. I love it because you can wear it fully buttoned or unbutton a few on the top or bottom for a completely different look! I can’t wait to play around with it a bit more! Made well sent me some clothes this month, and I have adored everything I have put on. It remains on of my favorite stores and their jeans are still my favorites. They fit me perfectly. The thing that I never have to worry about when shopping at Madewell is the quality of my purchases. Everything is amazing quality down to their tee shirts. I have owned my button down buffalo plaid shirt from them for years and it still looks like new!
I can’t believe how fast this week is going by. Is it just me, or is it going by quickly for you, too? I’m not sure if it’s all the sunshine we’ve had, or the fact that we have been running around like crazy people all week. I must say that while we have had a busy week, we have also made time to play outside quite a bit. I think we have been so excited to see the sun shining and feel the warmth outside. Especially after all of the storms last week. I recently received this maxi dress from Pink Blush (one of my favorite shops) and I thought it would be fun to style it two different ways. I love maxi dresses because they seriously look good on everyone. I can’t think of one body type they don’t work for. They are also really easy to dress up or down and during the summer, they are cool and comfy.This dress has pockets and a slit that goes just below the knee so it is easy to tie in a knot which is a trend I am loving right now!
One of my favorite stores is having a huge sale that opened today to the public! Shopbop’s event of the season sale is a great excuse to snatch up some of those designer pieces you’ve had your eye on for spring and summer! I have a running wish list on their site that keeps growing and growing because they have so many adorable things. I thought it would be fun to share what is on my wish list. Some are realistic and some…not so much. It’s all in good fun, though, right? So, let’s get to the Shopbop sale…
Happy Friday! We are still battling a stomach virus in our house, but I hope you are having a great start to the weekend and for most people – spring break! I remember as a kid that spring break was such a big deal! I always needed a break this time of year and looked so forward to it. I am so excited that Hamp will be out of school all week! We are planning to go to Florida, although because of this virus, our trip may be postponed a couple of days. So, let’s get on to Friday Favorites, shall we?
Now that my baby bump is getting bigger and bigger these days and the weather seems to be set on one temperature – HOT – I have found it easiest to wear cool and comfy dresses. Maternity and non-maternity dresses are wonderful. I’ve been trying to stick to non-maternity as much as possible so that I can wear it post-baby as well, but I found this adorable dress (similar) at Target in the maternity section, and who doesn’t love and need a good striped dress? I loved this one almost as much as I loved the price tag. Tar-jay for the win! You see what else I’ve been carrying around town? This custom bag by Rebekah Scott Designs was designed by yours truly and I love it so much!
I think it is safe to say my baby bump has POPPED over the last couple of weeks. I definitely feel like I look 30 weeks pregnant rather than 24. As my stomach is rapidly growing, I have had to start pulling out my loose fitting tops and have busted out my maternity jeans. I remember with Hamp, I fought maternity everything, but when I gave in, it was the best decision I ever made. I love my maternity jeans. Over the next few weeks, I am going to share a few of my favorite fashions and stores to shop while pregnant. It can be so hard and frustrating watching your body change so much and gaining so much weight in a very short amount of time. I still think it is important to get up and get dressed because it makes you feel so much better. So, bare with me as I share my growing baby bump (and bootay).
I love Nordstrom, but a lot of times, I don’t love their prices. The is why I love this wonderful time of year when they decide to have their Nordstrom half-yearly sale! Out with the old and in wth the new! I love to score some great pieces during their sales. Below I am sharing a few of my favorite clothes and accessories. Most of my picks are accessories this year. I doubt I will be buying many clothes over the next few months, but I am going to have a hard time saying no to some of these shoes and bags! I. Want. Them. All.
