One of my most favorite memories from my childhood is dressing up with my mom in our matching sunflower dresses whenever we traveled to the beach. I can remember it so vividly, even the matching sunflower hair ties we had for the dresses. They’re memories I cherish along with the dresses I still have, both my mom’s and mine. Last year, Ava and I tried on the dresses to see how they fit. It was a very emotional and special moment for me. I can’t wait for both of us to slip into them again!

Knowing the sentimentality behind a sunflower print, these dresses Ava and I wore above brought back memories of my mom and I from years past. My sunflower dress is an absolute favorite I’ve had for a few years now. When I saw Ava’s dress from Pat Pat, I knew it was a clear winner. The bright sunflower pattern along with the ruffle sleeves make for a darling summertime combo!

Red Sailor Dress || Ava’s Blue Sailor Dress c/o || Stripped Sandals || Red Scallop Bag || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Anchor  & Pearl Bracelet || 

Good morning, friends! This was by far my favorite outfits of ours from our trip. It was an absolutely breathtaking evening too. The sun was casting its golden glow upon the JFK memorial and further down onto the sands and glistening water. This is by far my favorite spot on the Cape. It was where I initially fell head over heels in love with the Cape. This view will always be my favorite view. It’s one of the best spots to experience the golden hour too. 

Ava was so excited to be a sailor for the day. She kept trying the dress on even before we left for our vacation. I couldn’t resist a mommy and me matching moment, pulling out my red sailor dress with a vintage flair. The stripes, buttons, pleats, and naval collar all make my heart swoon. Ava’s dress has a decorative bow, stripes, a naval collar and buttons to compete her nautical ensemble. These would also make wonderful dresses for the 4th of July as well! 

Today also marks my brother’s birthday. Wishing you a very happy one, Mike!

Mint Sailor Dress (On Sale!!) || White Disc Hat || Sunglasses || Wicker Bag || Yellow Wedge Espadrilles || Pink & Blue Co Bracelet c/o || 

Good morning, friends! What a dreamy evening it was to take a stroll along the harbor and Main Street. With the golden sun slowly setting, the sweet fragrance of lilacs in the air, and the warm breeze softly rustling, it truly felt like paradise. Gazing upon the harbor with its endless boats and ships is one of my favorite pastimes that I do quite frequently while visiting the Cape. This mint swing dress with mid-century mariner art upon it was the perfect ensemble to wear for the evening stroll. It’s on major sale right now too! Featuring an array of adorable sailor motifs, white buttons to secure the darted bodice, a white lapel collar that flares out to the cap sleeves, a button belt to cinch in your fabulous hour glass figure, and front pockets to carry your favorite necessities in. The dress runs true to size. Along this walk we also stopped to get our yearly photo with JFK’s statue at the Hyannis museum. Ava always gets so excited to see him, running right up to him to say hello.

Polka Dot Swimsuit c/o || Ava’s polka dot swimsuit c/o || White Bow Straw Hat || Ava’s White Bow Straw Hat || Sunglasses || Pink & Blue Co Bracelet c/o || Woven Mules ||

These are by far the cutest swimsuits Ava and I have! I adore anything that’s mommy and me matching, especially when they have a fun retro feel to them. These red polka dot swimsuits are the hit of the summer season, not to mention eye catching and darling with their sweet ruffles along the top. I found the sizing to be true to size for the toddler version. The adult version runs small. I would recommend sizing up one size for a comfortable fit.

These photos were taken out first day on vacation at the Cape. The weather was amazing and the beaches were practically untouched with an abundance of seashells laying on top of the sand. Ava had a field day collecting all of her seashell treasures and then arranging them on my towel!

Good morning, friends! As you know, mommy and me posts are my absolute favorite here on Enchanting Elegance. I get a big thrill each time I’m able to feature one. I’m particularly fond of this one because  of its nautical theme, which is very close to both my and Ava’s hearts. Come sail away with us! Both the sweater and sweater dress feature a wheel motif on a hydrangea blue background. I love being able to wear this sweater with a jacket now in winter, but I can also imagine wearing it with some jeans shorts and flats or wedges in the summer too. It’s perfect for those cool summer nights. This is how you do nautical year round! Both fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS and Ava is in a size 4.

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! As the weather starts to turn from chilly to downright freezing, I love to find pieces that remind me of being cuddled up in the coziest blanket. This peacoat Sherpa coat from Chicwish does just that. It has an oversized fit, perfect for layering sweaters or even another jacket under for those wind whipping days. I felt warm and toasty all weekend long while wearing this. I also thought I’d mention how the pockets are nice and roomy. It’s a small detail, but one I truly appreciated for being able to keep my hands warm and also to carry various items in them. I’m a huge fan of pockets!

This dress!! Swoon. Is there anything better than ice cream in summer? I think not, haha.  This dress embodies everything fun and sweet that ice cream has to offer. How about the vintage flair too?! I always gravitate towards items that remind me of the 1940s-1960s. Especially the 1950s. I wanted this outfit to have a dash of whimsy, a spoonful of bright color, and a healing cup of cheeriness. We had ice cream the night before at Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream (delish!!) and I instantly fell in love with the location. I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for the dress. The dress fits perfectly (wearing a size small) though I wish the skirt portion had some more flair to it.

The vintage vibes are strong with this one! I cannot resist anything that has a little vintage flair to it, this dress included. I especially love that a belt was included and the cute ruffles. This would make a great dress to transition into fall with as well. The color is more of a muted mustard yellow, which is perfect during the fall months. I actually got a lot of compliments on this dress while we were at the Mashpee Commons. It was a hit! If you’re visiting Cape Cod, definitely check it out. It’s a very charming outdoor shopping center that looks like a little town. This is also where we spotted Cape Cod Coffee for the first time. They also have a location in Hyannis. I would recommend the cranberry flavor as well as their lattee’s. I went back for seconds! The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a small for reference.

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.

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!

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.
