I really wish three day weekends were a monthly thing–something about having that extra day off is just good for the soul!
I love me a nautical look….I can’t help it. I am pretty sure I have three pairs of pants of just like these. I like what I like!
This particular pair of pants was the result of stalking JCrew and waiting for a sale. Finally, I scored–and got these for around $30! Time and money well spent! Not sure if my husband would agree with that statement but let’s not digress.
So, whenever I wear something nautical, I always want to pair it with navy or stripes. It is just the perfect pairing…like Audrey Hepburn and Rome or pork chops and applesauce (Seriously. Don’t knock it till you’ve rocked it). This bell sleeve top balances out the volume of the pant and I love the crisp and shape and classic color..unfortunately it is from last year but I did link a cute similar one from Nordstrom!
These espadrille sneakers were a major score..found them on clearance at my local Target for $8 so naturally I bought two colors and have been loving them! They fit true to size and are super comfortable. The little platform made them perfect for keeping these longer chinos off the ground but didn’t make me feel unstable and allowed for running around after the kids!
Hope everyone has a great week!

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend! We really did…went by quickly as they always do, but we got a lot done and had a lot of fun too 🙂
We started Friday off by hitting up the pool after the gym…I love that we have a pool in the neighborhood which means I get to enjoy it but don’t have to maintain it lol
Saturday morning we were up bright and early to hit up NASA in the park. It was really awesome! I kind of expected it to be lame honestly but it was really neat with food trucks, live music and lots of kid friendly exhibits.
This striped maxi dress was perfect for such a hot day! I was seriously sweating my face off but this dress is really light so it helped!
Despite the heat though, the kids had a great time!
Louis loved the rock climbing wall–he didn’t go very high but he was so proud of himself!
We finished our visit by feeding the ducks and meeting a space ranger–Louis was thrilled I promise!
Sunday we celebrated two great dads in our lives, Joe and my dad right down the street 🙂 After a delicious brunch (thanks mom!!) the kids napped at my parents while Joe and I ran to Home Depot and Target. Believe it or not, Joe said it was a perfect Father’s Day…he’s a keeper 🙂
Mascara and coffee are going to be essential to getting me through this day! Who are we kidding?? WEEK. Here’s hoping it’s a good one!

So our Memorial Day Weekend was kind of a bust. We planned on going to Nashville for the big flea market and some shopping but the forecast kept calling for severe storms. Kept going on and on about how bad this weather was going to be, and so we got spooked…and…would you believe it? DID NOT RAIN. Then we thought about going on Sunday, but by then my enthusiasm had waned so we thought we would just go over to Decatur and check out the hot air balloon show. Well, wouldn’t you know it…too windy for the balloons to fly.
Soooo we wondered the basically empty grounds (save for the bored firemen and EMT who so kindly indulged Louis for a bit) and then headed over to the trails for a little walk.
Of course, the sky was ominous looking the whole time and therefore we didn’t wander to far. So then we just decided to head to a new (to us) Target and go out for lunch. #Goals.
So all in all…kind of a bust. It never really rained until night and today of course, when we told the kids we’d go to the pool. Win some, lose some.
Love this outfit though..I don’t know about you, but the worse my mood, the cuter my outfit needs to be! This blazer was a clearance score and I just love it so much! Looks to be sold out online, but this print is still available in a top and there is a new Liberty blazer that is also to die for.
This purse is getting major use this spring and I expect it to continue its MVP status into the summer! It doesn’t have any lining and is thus super light weight…I know there being no lining or pockets may be a deal breaker for some but to me, it’s a nice break from my heavier bags.
At least my outfit was cute for our one day of activities and I got to get some online shopping done! Did you guys catch anything good?

Have you seen La La Land? I am so obsessed with it! I have the record, the DVD and am one step away from buying a poster for my bedroom–just kidding on that one, but seriously love this movie!
Emma Stone wears super twirly, gorgeous dresses and skirts throughout the film and I was totally thinking of that when I picked out this outfit!
My purse and skirt are both from the WWW collection at Target…I have so many things from them and am always impressed with the quality and trendiness of their offerings.
Little miss LOVES the La La Land soundtrack so of course she had to get in on the twirling action!
It was crazy hot this day so a hat and shades were necessary! I do not do well in the humidity so I’m trying to adjust and these two are helping!
Hope you find a chance to laugh and twirl this week!
