Happy Monday sweet friends!

We're more than half way into summer, yet August is known for being the hottest month of the season, which means dressing comfortable is very much necessary to get through the day. Whether you're getting up and ready for your 9-5 or jetting off to your final destination for the summer, there's one fabric that should find its way into your wardrobe if it hasn't already, linen.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends! 

I'm sure many of you prefer to get up and get out on those hot summer days that you have plans for. I, for one, loathe the thought of putting on a full face of makeup followed by standing blank faced in front of my closet without a clue of what to wear because let's face it, when it's hot, it's just too much to overthink. Even though I may have zero interest in contemplating what to wear, I do want to look chic and put together. I believe I've found what's worked for me in making that happen that help me look chic and feel put together without having to put too much effort, allowing me to get on with my day enjoying my summer plans. Here's what they are....

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen the IG Story I posted last Tuesday stating that my mother-in-law passed away, after battling stomach cancer for seven long and painful months. I've mentioned her condition a few times on the blog to explain my lack of posts throughout the winter and into spring. It was...

Happy First day of August my friends!

Where is the summer going? Where is time going for that matter and how is Aviah going to be 13 months tomorrow? She just turned one! Yes, I'm one of those moms that still goes by months. I used to think it was so funny whenever I heard moms say that, but now I understand how much growth and development takes place between 12 and 18 months for example!

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! 

A couple of months ago, Love Beauty & Planet sent me a few products to try out, including their argon oil and lavender smooth & serene shampoo and conditioner duo. I've never heard of the brand before, so I was excited to test them out. I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful packaging, the fact that it was suited for frizzy hair (which I have), and the fact that they don't contain parabens and other harsh chemical ingredients, which as you know I really try my best to avoid.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a wonderful start to your week so far! 

It's been rather hot, humid and muggy, so I've been reaching for pieces that are easy to work with and are comfortable for the weather. Dresses and jumpsuits have been on heavy rotations and those in linen and silk fabrics have been my favorite especially. This silk shift dress I'm wearing has been my summer go-to for years now. You may remember it from my How to Wear a Dress as a Blouse With Pantpost from a few years ago. It's one of these timeless classics, even though it's in a bold color.

Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

So, as many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also known as the #Nsale) early access opened to card holders yesterday. I personally don't have the credit card, but have the rewards card, which grants you the same access. If you shop at Nordstrom frequently or even quarterly, I think it's worth considering, especially during this time of year because the most popular items sell out fast! I can't tell you how many times I've kicked myself for not purchasing something I had been eyeing when it was available and ended up hunting it down and refreshing my browser countless times for it to be restocked. Don't go through this! If you love it, know you'll wear it, and it's within your set budget, get it!

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends! 

Denim. Probably the most worn fabric, aside from cotton. It's durable, it can be comfortable and certainly is fashionable and timeless. My most popular blog posts are nearly all on the topic of denim and so, I figured it would be only fitting (you see what I did there?) to compile those posts into one to serve as a denim guide.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine is, thankfully, still going on, since Eddie took the last few days off. We've been together for 13 years, married 9 and he's been off on a Saturday maybe 4 or 5 times. His industry is quite demanding, so whenever he catches a break, I like to take full advantage and annoy him; yes, I'm clingy, haha. We've also been talking advantage of the extra time spent by putting together some of Aviah's birthday gifts that I get to enjoy with her, like this convertible tricycle my cousin gifted her with. How cute?!
