Sail To Sable Dress c/o || Ava’s Dress || Sunglasses || Wicker Bag || Jack Rogers Sandals || Vineyard Vines Hat (Old, Similar) || Jackie Kennedy Earrings || Pearl And Anchor Bracelet || 

Good morning, friends! This dress could not have been more perfect for being on the Cape.  The flutter sleeves give the dress just the right amount of flair while keeping the look classic, elegant, and fun! I love how comfortable the dress is too. This was another look that I matched with Ava, though we didn’t get too many photos together other than our macaron snap and our yearly family photo in front of the Nausset Lighthouse, which is the lighthouse on the Cape Cod chips bag! This is one of those dresses I love to keep in rotation all summer long. It’s so easy to throw on with some sandals and go. 

What a gorgeous day we had! We started at one of our favorite antique stores and then headed to Cake and Islands Dessert Shoppe. They’re known for their sea glass candy, but also their macaron cookies. They were amazingly good! We ate all of them on the beach, haha. Next we stopped at the National Seashore Park office in Eashtham, which is also where the Nausset Lighthouse is. Fun fact, on August 7, 1961 President Kennedy signed a bill establishing the Cape Cod National Seashore to preserve the Great Beach and prevent large scale development from occurring at other places along the Eastern seaboard. It includes 43,607 acres and nearly 40 miles of seashore along the Atlantic coast. After visiting the park office, we went to the beach where Ava played with a sand turtle toy she got at the park store and then eventually to the lighthouse to get some photos. Ava thought someone lived inside the lighthouse and kept knocking on the door. She is adorable to watch! To end the day, we stopped in Chatham, my second favorite town on the Cape. It is beyond charming. We stopped for dinner at the Chatham Raw Bar to try out their oysters after hearing so many good reviews. Trust me, they were the best oysters I ever had! I’m kicking myself for not getting a photo of them, but I literally inhaled them as soon as they got to the table.

Happy Tuesday, friends! First, happy birthday to my brother Mike! I can’t wait to celebrate with him. This look definitely puts a smile on my face. It has my all time favorite vintage vibe going on with the forever fun polka dot print and the tailored white shorts with an adorable bow at the waist. I matched Ava with her ruffled polka dot top and white bottoms. I seriously cannot resist matching with her! Both pieces fit extremely well and are true to size. I’m wearing an XS for reference. We took these photos at a newly found restaurant for us. Persy’s became one of our go-to spots for breakfast with a huge menu, great prices, and even better food! The meal I got the most was eggs, bacon, home fries, and a common crumpet. Of course some coffee too!

 Good morning everyone and welcome to Monday! One of the things we love to do while on the cape is to catch some breathtaking sunsets and trust me, they never disappoint! There are a few spots to watch the sun setting over the bay, but one of the highest rated is Skaket Beach in Orleans. This is a great family beach too. It’s never overcrowded, very clean, has warm bay water, and of course has the amazing view of the sunset. This was our first time trying out the beach and we were very impressed! This was actually one of our busiest days and it was very relaxing and memorable to end it with the beautiful golden glow. I wore this blue crochet dress for our day out and love it’s gorgeous details! I’ll tell you, Chicwish never disappoints with that. It has a full crochet finish with eyelet details, a scrolled hem, and is pleated at the waist. I’m wearing an XS for reference. 

Stay tuned tomorrow for some matching with Ava! There were a few outfits I had planned out where Ava and I would match. I’m also getting our family photos from the trip ready to go as well. Looking back on them gives me the biggest smile and fills my heart with happiness. Until then, have a great Monday!

Good morning and happy Thursday!  We were very lucky to have some incredible weather on our trip that was perfect for the beach. We made sure to make the most of it too, especially after this hard winter. With beach weather comes swimsuit season! For the longest time, I really only had one or two swimsuits I would pull out every year, but when they started looking old and thread worn, I vowed that would never happen again, haha. Honestly, there are so many great bathing suits out here for very affordable princes, there’s no reason to keep recycling the old ones year after year. The one I’m wearing above is only $14 and has the cutest floral print with little ruffles. I’m wearing a size small. I’m also loving my new MVMT sunglasses and watch! The sunglasses fit my face nicely and do not slide off my nose, which happens to a great deal of sunglasses. The reflective lenses are always an awesome touch! The watch is elegant and timeless with brushed rose gold stainless steal and a peach 100% leather strap. Use the code “amandabrezovsky15” for $15 off of your MVMT order!

Pink Satin Dress c/o (Sold Out, Similar Here and Here) || Ava’s Tulle Dress c/o || Similar Pink Sandals || Jackie Kennedy Pearl Earrings || MVMT Watch c/o || Kate Spade Mom Bracelet || KJP JFK Pearl Bracelet || KJP JFK Pearl Necklace || 

Good morning, friends. First, I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kate Spade. My heart goes out to them. I was completely shocked and saddened to learn of her passing yesterday. Her brand and vision have always been an inspiration for me bringing color, sparkle, and whimsy into the fashion world. I remember getting my first Kate Spade bag only a few years ago and what a monumental moment that was for me. She brought affordable luxury to the masses and allowed us to peak into her world of fun and vibrant colors. She did live colorfully and she did leave a little sparkle everywhere she went. Thank you Kate. You will be missed. 

This was one of my most favorite photography shoots we did while on vacation in Cape Cod. I told Ava these were our princess dresses, which she loved! She kept telling me we looked like princesses for the rest of the night. She didn’t want to take her dress off. Both of our dresses are from Chicwish, a favorite of mine. I was happy to see they started carrying children’s clothing too. As soon as I spotted this tulle floral dress, I knew Ava would not only love it, but look darling in it. She’s wearing a size 3-4. She wears a 3T now. My heart swooned a bit when I saw my dress. It’s perfect for any formal event, especially with wedding season upon us. Mine is currently sold out, but I linked some similar ones also from Chicwish.

We took these photos at the JFK memorial on my 30th birthday. A great way to end a very memorable day. This is my favorite spot on all of the Cape and that’s saying a lot since every spot on the Cape is charming and dreamy. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous going down behind the memorial and glistening on the water fountain. It’s relaxing and very peaceful to be there, especially with Veternas Beach being in front of the memorial too. It’s a great little spot to come and the spot where I initially fell in love with Hyannis. I can’t wait to share the rest of our photos from our vacation!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! I don’t know what it is, but I adore matching. I love matching my accessories to my outfit and I especially love matching my outfits to Ava’s. Those are my favorite! I was thrilled when Julie Brown NYC told me they were doing a matching collaboration with Dress For Cocktails. I could not wait to see what they had in store. The dress is so vibrant and stands out in a crowd. It also has pockets, which, let’s be honest, is one of the best features for a dress to have! I’m wearing a size 2, but I should have gone with the 0. The 2 felt a little loose. Now, the bags (tote and clutch) have a removable magnetic bow, which matches the print of the dress. There are also a few different colored bows available to mix and match. I told Ava the little matching clutch was hers to carry around and she loved it. She also really liked the removable bows. She was constantly switching them around. It’s a neat idea!

Hello friends and happy Tuesday! Today is a very special day for me, my 30th birthday! It’s hard to believe I’m in my 30s now, haha, but I’m at a good place with it and excited to see all that my 30s have to offer. If you know me or have been following along, then you know today is also JFK’s birthday. It is the coolest thing for me to share my birthday with him! The best gift my mom could have ever given me. He would have been 101 today. I treated myself to these cute Cape Cod turtles the other day. They were absolutely delicious and even better with my favorite place on earth on them.

I couldn’t think of anything more fun and festive than this two-piece set with all the trimmings! The double ruffle straps and flat pom trim set this two-piece apart from the rest. The best part, pretty much this entire outfit is 20% off today only! The store is having a Memorial Day sale with almost everything at 20% off and sale items an additional 20% off at checkout. Nothing like a good sale. How cute are these statement earrings too?! I love how they have a spring and summer vibe all wrapped into one. The straw bag, with removable pom tassels, reminds me of a fiesta and is the perfect piece to kick off summer with. These blush heels, you know my affinity for blush!, are soooo comfortable to wear and feature a beautiful scallop trim. They fit true to size. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend and hopefully had some good weather. We got together with some family friends to have a cookout and celebrate the holiday. Thank you to all of those of have served to fight for and protect this amazing country!

VIIcode Eye Mask c/o || PJ Set c/o || 

Good morning, friends! Today I’m excited to talk about a revolutionary eye mask system from VIIcode. The eye masks are soft pads with a gel-like material that feels amazing to put on. A fun tip would be to put the pads in the refrigerator before applying them at night. To receive maximum benefits from the eye mask, it is recommended to wear them for eight hours at night. One box comes with six pads, which can be worn two or three times per week giving about two or three weeks worth of treatment. A full treatment would be three boxes total. Now, onto the benefits! Being a busy mom, I typically have under eye circles that I need to cover up with makeup in the morning. Depending on the weather, the delicate skin around my eyes can feel a bit dry as well. The eye pads are so easy to put on. You just peel back the plastic, stick the gel side against your skin, and go to sleep! When I would take them off in the morning, my skin looked refreshed and felt soft. The dryness was gone and my delicate eye skin felt moisturized. My eyes didn’t look tired anymore, but looked revitalized. I really love how these masks work while I’m sleeping too. A totally no fuss system that delivers results with powerful antioxidants. Some of the key ingredients are, Vitmin E, Sodium PCA, Sodiun Hyaluranate, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadneis, and Algin. I was also impressed with the feel of the gel pads. I was worried they wouldn’t ld stay on or would fall off while I slept, but that did not happen at all. The gel had a nice cooling feeling (fantastic in the warm summer months!) and they stayed put all night long. No slipping or moving around. If you’re under eye area needs a little love, definitely give these gel eye masks a try!

Good morning and happy Wednesday friends! Today I’m happy to be able to share a little glimpse into the fun filled history adventure of my Mother’s Day weekend with you. I finally finished editing all of the photos and got to relive the memories while doing so. I was fortunate enough to spend it in my favorite city filled with history, culture, and excitement. Ava’s always learning and soaking up information. I find it important to teach her as much history as I can about each place we visit. She loves it and can tell you quite a bit about American history! A current favorite of hers right now is Abraham Lincoln. She was completely taken by him and wanted to go talk to him, which we did multiple times at the memorial. One of my favorite pictures is actually her gazing upon Lincoln’s portrait at the National Portrait Gallery. She looks so small standing next to the painting and is in a state of awe. Coming from a history loving family like mine, it’s pretty amazing to see. I kept telling Ava all weekend how lucky I am to have her and thank you for making me your mommy. She gave me the most beautiful gift of all. Being her mommy.

Hello all and happy Monday!  I am currently writing this from outside as it is such a gorgeous day! We had rain for about 75 perfectof the weekend so it truly feels like a breath of fresh air. Speaking of the weekend, did anyone watch the Royal Wedding?? I didn’t see it live, but as soon as I woke up, I watched all of the highlights and read up on all of the details. It looked like a dream wedding and Harry and Meghan were so happy! I couldn’t be happier for them. I also went to go see Deadpool 2 and loved it. Ryan Reynolds is perfect in the part and oh so halarious. If you liked the first Deadpool, then you are sure to pleased with this one as well. 

 I’ve always been a huge fan of floral prints and wear them year long no matter the season. When the seasons do change into fall and winter, I change over from light brights to dark florals in order to keep rocking my favorite print. They’re also my favorite backdrop to photograph against. The song lyric, “these are a few of my favorite things” comes to mind when thinking of this dress! The eye catching white flowers set against a beautiful blush background make for one stunning combo. The ruffle hem adds some feminine flair while the ruffle cut out in the back gives this dress a fun sexy twist that still feels elegant! On a side note, does anyone know the name of the white flowering trees I’m standing by? They smelled AMAZING! Possibly jasmine? No one knew for sure, but they were increadible.

Good morning and happy Thursday! Have you ever wanted to switch up your style, but not spend tons of money in the process? I’m sure this happens to most, especially when the seasons change or a new trend hits the scene. An easy and affordable way to add some pizazz to your wardrobe and give it a breath of fresh air is through accessories! New from Vtthai, this bamboo bag strap let’s you create your own style by matching the straps with any bags. They are created using dyed woven bamboo, which is a traditional craft technique that has been passed down through generations of Thai artisans, and incorporated with genuine leather. The straps have an exquisite design and excellent quality. 

I hope everyone has been safe with the torrential rain and all around nasty storms the east coast has been getting hammered with lately. We lucked out with only getting some heavy rain and gusts of wind yesterday, but other areas nearby were getting hit with hail and tornados too. Hopefully we’ll see some sunshine soon, although it looks like a steady storm running its course throughout the weekend.

Good morning, friends! What a wirl wind the past few days have been! I’m floating on cloud nine just thinking about all of the adventures we just had, but more about that later. I hope everyone had a lovely mother’s day too. I kept telling Ava, thank you so much for making me your mommy. You gave me the greatest gift of all.

 

I’m not exactly sure what type of flowers these are, but they create the most beautiful sea of purple down along the river walk. It’s a gorgeous spot, especially with the sun setting. Ava bug was my little helper carrying around this Tignanello bag for me. She knows a good circle bag when she sees one! She always says, “mommy loves circle bags.” Haha, she is beyond adorable. Tignanello is a brand I’ve come to know in recent years and appreciate their quality and eye for classic styling and functionality. Their design team draws inspiration from the aesthetic of traditional Italian craftsmanship. One of the best places to shop the handbags is on QVC. I believe you can find some on Amazon too, but QVC is their main retailer. My mom would have loved that, she was a big QVC fan!

Good morning friends and welcome to Wednesday! This post is all about our adventures celebrating May The Fourth Cinco De Derby weekend. Haha, it truly was an amazing time with many many memories that we’ll cherish forever.

To start with, Friday was Star Wars day, known as May The Fourth Be With You. Ava was thrilled! My brother and I took her to her first baseball game where they were celebrating Star Wars with characters walking around, sounds and video from the movies, boat loads of merchandise, and changing out the opponents team photos with Star Wars villains while our players photos had light sabers for bats. The weather was phenomenal too adding the overall greatness of the night. Even the Rail Riders mascot Champ came over and gave Ava and big high five! 

Next came my brother’s fiancé’s graduation from Penn State, my almamater! It was so special to be back and get to share this new chapter in her life with her family. Ava and I dressed up in our blue and white dresses to match the PSU colors. As soon as the lion saw her he came right over to snap a photo. We took some photos together after the ceremony, had lunch tnd then some ice cream before everyone needed a nap lol. Later on, we had a little Cinco De Mayo party followed by a bonfire at my brothers. We didn’t watch the Kentucky Derby, but we were keeping our ears open as to how the race went. So many celebrations in one day! 

Our last big event of the weekend was a trip furniture shopping with my brother and his fiancé. I also have to note the photo of Ava in her car seat, my brother took that! It turned out being one of my favorite photos from the weekend. He really knows how to make her smile.

Good morning and a very happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a blast, but I don’t want to get too into it just yet since I have a post covering our special weekend coming up. Let’s just say there was lots of celebrations going on! 

Last week I stumbled upon this gorgeous magnolia tree with its pretty pink blossoms that perfumed the air beautifully. If you got close enough to the tree, it was like gazing upon a sea of endless pink blossoms with golden light shining through. Quite magnificent and utterly magical to see. It was the perfect backdrop for this gingham mix ensemble.

The ruffle hem wrap skirt ties everything together with a chic little bow. I’m a big fan of matching and went my gingham cocktail crossbody bag that is currently on sale! In fact, almost everything here matches one another. The bow hair tie matches the bow in my skirt. The pearl earrings and necklace match the pearl embellished slides. Finally, the gingham skirt matches the gingham bag. I first tried on a white top with the skirt, but eventually decided a black one that really made the whole look pop. I actually pulled out a body suit I’ve had for ages, which kept everything very streamlined. I’d forgotten how much I love them. Bye bye excess fabric!

Lavender Floral Dress  || Lavender Bag || Lavender Bow Slides || Sunglasses || Hoop Earrings || 

Good morning and happy Friday, friends! Today is also affectionately know as “May The Fourth Be With You” for all of my Star Wars fans! We’ll be celebrating by going to a baseball game where they’ll have the Star Wars characters walking around. I can’t wait! This weekend is also Cinco De Mayo and my brother’s fiancé is graduating from college so it’s going to be a busy one. 

My love for lavender continues! It’s easy to fall in love with this drss with its fluttering ruffles, springtime florals made up of warm reds and yellows, and a stylish crisscross back. The material is very light and airy making it great for the warm spring and summer days. I’m quite taken with this lavender bag too! While it’s not a circle bag, which has been my current go-to, the shape is so unique and interesting and of course the lavender color totally has my heart. I love that it’s pretty roomy too and an added bonus of gold hardware. 

Cheers to the weekend!!

Floral Maxi Dress c/o ||  Similar Blush Sandals || Similar Straw Clutch || Hoop Earrings || 

Hello and happy Thursday!  Do you ever find that everything comes together just right to make for the perfect outfit? That’s exactly how I felt about this look between the gorgeous twirl worthy dress to the beautiful blossoms and dreamy sunset. The weather was warm and the sweet scent of flowers were swirling in the breeze as people around me were laughing and enjoying the soon to be twilight. The look itself was fairly easy to create with my blush sandals and straw clutch matching the nude and blush background of the maxi dress from Chicwish. The oversize floral print brings spring to life and creates a lovely romantic scene. Though this is a maxi dress, the length will work for petite girls! I’m 5’2” and found the length to fit perfectly. Anyone under 5ft might need this to be hemmed. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing an XS for reference. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather! We had a HOT one yesterday and i’ll you, after the long and dreary winter, it felt AMAZING! Ava and I did not waste one second of it. We were completely wiped out by the end of the day and actually headed to bed early. We took walks, ran around, played kick the ball, throw the ball, baseball, and bowling. Then we went over uncle Mike’s house and he was squirting her with the hose. Haha, she absolutely loved it. Her laughter was the sound of pure childhood joy.

T3 Single Pass Wave c/o || Pink Pearl Top c/o || AG Skinny Jeans || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o ||  

Welcome May and happy May Day!  May just so happens to be one of my favorite months and though I may be partial to it because it’s my birthday month, I can’t help but feel an over excitement that the month has arrived. Speaking of, today is also “It’s Gonna Be May” for all of the *NSYNC and Justin Timberlake fans! Did anyone happen to see their walk of fame ceremony yesterday? Ava and I watched the live stream of it. Sadly, they did not reunite for a song, but it was fantastic to see hem all together again! The crowd kept chanting “reunite, reunite, reunite” so I’m definitely not alone in this wishful thinking, haha. 

The one brand I know I can count on for  flawless hairstyling is T3 Micro. I quickly became a fan the moment I tried my first curling wand from them and have not looked back. Their new SinglePass Wave is designed for all hair types and for women who want fast styling with beautiful and healthy results. We’re talking about some gorgeous summer sunshine type of shine for your hair! T3’s custom blend Tourmaline + ceramic barrels emit negative ions that seal the cuticle fast, to retain moisture and produce healthy, shiny results. The lightweight design includes five adjustable heat settings ranging from 260F-410F and a SmartTwist dial to easily turn the tool on/off and regulate the temperature. Along with the Tourmaline + ceramic barrels technology comes the new T3 digital SinglePass technology allowing for a consistent temperature, one pass styling, and flawless, frizz-free waves.
