My New Favorite Hat!!

Hello friends Happy Hump Day! Today I bring you a trendy piece that I'm currently obsessed with. My new Brixton Fiddler Hat. I got this little baby during the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale and since then they have come out with so many new colors!! I just love them all! It kind of gives me throw back britney vibes! Circa 2001! Ha ha! Who remembers those days? I'm a bit of a fan to say the least. Hats are such a great way to update an older piece in your closet. Even if it's just to go from season to season. Hats always find a way to really step that outfit up even if its a dad cap! I hope you are having a great week so far! Enjoy!

Thank You for reading!

White After Labor Day...

Hello!! Happy September! I can't believe it is officially September and Fall is just around the corner. I love love summer and I must say its probably my second favorite season next to my absolute fave, which is HALLOWEEN. I know we are not quite their yet but just throwing that out there! Ha ha!

Wearing white only in the spring & summer is what you all have been told to do. My Grandmother was the one that told me this rule when I was 12 years old (if I can remember correctly). Then my mother encouraged it as I was growing up.  While no one is completely sure exactly when or why this fashion rule came into effect, I'm guessing it had to be in the early 1900's. So clearly its dated and not relevant in todays society. Fashion to me should be fun, exciting and expressive in all sorts of different ways. So I say throw our the rule book and just have fun and be adventurous. 

My look today is a great transitional fall look. This ruffle dress it a poplin material and can easily be paired with sandals in the warmer summer months then paired with booties or boots and a leather jacket for those coming colder days. I'm really loving these blush velvet booties by Steve Madden. The Velvet trend is one I'm totally with.  I'm having fun finding different ways to incorporate different pieces into my looks. The fit is true to size and super comfortable. Blush is my go to color and it is perfect to take into fall as well as spring. Paired with a wide brim fedora and your good to go! I hope you enjoy your day! 

Thank you so much for Reading!!

Laced up in Red!

Hi!! Happy Thursday my friends! Im taking us back to San Diego once again. Why not right it is Thursday! Right? We had such a good time on our little staycation which I talked all about in my last post here.  Im kinda obsessed this season with one piece swimsuits. They are just so comfy and so perfect for running around with the kids. I love how you can just throw on a pair jean shorts and your ready to go. Wa-la instant bodysuit!! I'm currently loving this red laced up suit by Misguided the laced up details are what I love. It has the perfect combination of sexy and cute! The bandeau top is perfect for tanning and is just such a fun suit! I also want to mention that this suit just went on major sale and its going fast! I've linked it above and below for you to check it out. Happy almost weekend!! Thanks so much for reading!

Staycation In San Diego...

Hello!! Today I want to share our recent staycation in San Diego. We like to visit San Diego at least once to twice a year maybe more if we can. The kids always get super excited when we are getting ready for this trip every year. One of the main reasons is they get to visit Sea World and of course the fact that get to stay in a "hotel". I don't know what it is about hotels that just get kids so excited. I guess its the new surroundings, pools and of course room service which I must agree with! Who doesn't love some good room service! We stayed at The Catamaran Resort and Spa for our second year.  We had such good time last year at this resort we wanted to come visit again. The Resort is located on Mission Bay.  They offer beachfront rooms and has a Hawaiian flare to it! The grounds are covered with beautiful tropical greens and florals everywhere. You can find Koi Ponds and the cutest ducks just waddling around. They even have the own mascots, The Talking Parrots. It's not an official name but it is what the kids started calling them. They offer Sunset Luaus every Tuesday and Friday. We had the opportunity to enjoy this last year and I would highly recommend it. It was such a fun show. The hotels offers multiple water sports and family activities like paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, etc.

There is so much to do in San Diego that I didn't want to bombard the kids with too many planned activities. I'm a big planner and sometimes I can get carried away! Ha ha! Its nice to just relax at the beach and spend some family time just chilling!! We have just 2 short weeks till my kiddos are back in school and I will officially have a (2nd year) pre-schooler and a 2nd Grader!! Wowza! I'm not ready for summer to end but then again I'm never really ready.  

If you haven't had the opportunity to visit the Catamaran Resort and Spa its unlike any other hotel and I suggest you do and let me know what you think!! 

Thank you so much for reading and following along.

Lauren
