Good morning and happy Monday, friends! Ava and I are here with some rainbow prints sure to brighten the day. My maxi dress from chicwish adds some sweetness with its candy inspired rainbow print and fun tassels. The straps along the shoulders are adjustable (self-tie) for fit and added comfort. A true win for the summer season, especially for a vacation! Ava’s ensemble is a two piece set with a cat holding balloons on top and a rainbow layered mesh skirt on the bottom. There is an inner lining underneath the mesh and an elastic waist band. She fell in love with this outfit because it reminds her of Mary Poppins so she was beyond thrilled to wear it! Look at some of her model poses too!! Both her outfit and mine fit true to size.

Ruffle Wrap Dress (On Major Sale!) || Similar Blush Sandals || Réna Iman Blush Leather Clutch c/o || Chloe And Isabel Earrings (Old) c/o || Necklace (Old, My Mom’s) || 

Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m very honored to introduce a brand I’ve only just found out about, Réna Iman. This classic blush clutch, with a customized tag featuring Ava’s birthstone, provides that beautiful  personal touch and is made of the highest quality leather inside and out. What really makes this brand quite special is how their handcrafted timeless pieces go on to support stopping violence against women one unique story at a time. A portion of every purchase is donated to the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance and the Joyful Heart Foundation. 

 It’s hard to believe this is the last official meteorological day of summer. It truly did fly by in the blink of an eye as summer usually tends to do. The first calendar day of fall is September 22, but meteorologically it starts on September 1st. There’s still plenty of warm weather left though making this romantic wrap dress an absolute must! It’s on sale now for only $15 too. It’s light and airy with the most beautiful ruffles and watercolor print. There’s also a black and a rose version as well. I love how it flows and all of the feminine details making me feel at my very best. 

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! We’re planning some outdoor activities and of course a fireworks show. Cheers!!

Pineapple Stripe Top || Nantucket Reds  || Similar Wedges || Sunglasses || Arc Bag || Earrings || Pearl And Anchor Bracelet || DW Watch c/o || 

Good morning, friends! Ever since visiting Nantucket back in 2014, I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair of Nantucket Reds to add to my coastal New England attire. I came across these at J. Crew Factory and was instantly smitten with them. Everything from the color, length, and fit was exactly what I had been searching for. The color pairs very well with navy blue, white, light blue, and stripes. The most common color seen with Nantucket Reds is navy blue. I went with blue and white stripes with the cutest pineapple print. I’m especially loving the little pop of yellow gold the pineapples give. It’s no surprise that my favorite guy, JFK, sported Nantucket Red as well. I mean, he did live on Cape Cod after all. 

 Nantucket Reds are typically worn in place of khakis or chinos and are found most commonly on Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Cape Cod. The official Reds are produced and distributed by Murray’s Tuggary Shop located on Main Street on Nantucket Island.

Good Morning and happy Monday! This has to be one of my favorite Mommy & Me outfits to date! This pink layered tulle skirt has been on my Chicwish wishlist for quite some time now. It’s whimsically romantic and the prettiest shade of blush. This skirt has a magical quality to it. It really does! It’s one of those pieces that can make you feel at your best. It can set the mood for the entire day. Doesn’t the skirt remind you of Carrie Bradshaw in the opening of Sex And The City too?? There is a new black style that was just released as well. When I saw there was a matching skirt for the little ones, I knew this would be perfect for my little mini me and I. Ava and I felt like princesses and everyone that saw us stopped to say how much they loved our outfits. It’s was the coolest day! We danced and twirled all while laughing and having a good time. Kisses and hugs included <3 I’m wearing an XS/Small and Ava is in a 3-4 year.

Good morning and happy Thursday! I’ve been trying to soak in as much of summer as I possibly can recently and with that comes wearing as many dresses as I can. This blue one reminds me of a vintage 1950s circle style with cap sleeves and some of the prettiest florals I’ve seen. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a small and found it to be slightly loose, but comfortably so. Not enough to go down a size (small is the smallest size available.) I thought the perfect spot to capture the essence of this dress would be at one of our local parks that has a flower garden. It blooms all throughout spring and summer. Each time I visit it, there seems to be different flowers in bloom, which makes it all the more magical.

Good morning! One of my favorite things about a casual look is elevating it with beautiful little details. This top includes gorgeous mesh yoke with cap sleeves and a bow tie neck. It’s all in the details my friends! I found the top to fit true to size (wearing an XS) and it only costs $12. I kept the look light and fresh with pastels and a cute button down jean skirt, which is a very versatile piece, though I would recommend going up one size as it fits slightly tight.

 Pink and Palm Print Bikini c/o || Sunlasses || Blush Sandals || 

It’s hard to believe we’re in the home stretch with summer, but the kiddos go back to school soon and with that comes all things fall related. While I am excited for the new season to come, I’m not quite done with summer yet! Another thing hard to believe, this is actually the first bikini I’ve worn since Ava was born three years ago. I was very self conscious with my body after giving birth, but I’m at a much better and more confident place with how I look now. I felt great wearing this!

Last year I had a pink and green palm print once piece swim suit that I absolutely loved. Ever since then I’ve been quite taken with the color combo and print. This tropical bikini fits true to size. I’m wearing a small and felt very comfortable in it. The print is just darling too! At just $12, this certainly is a great addition to your swim wear attire. One note of caution though, watch the cut outs right underneath the boob area. Slippage can happen with some bottom boob, haha. I feel ridiculous saying that, but it was something I noticed. It also could have been because Ava and I were constantly jumping up and down and running around, but it’s still worth noting.

Good morning and happy Friday, everyone! This outfit is something you would find me in on any given weekend whether we’re running errands around town or just having some plain ol’ fun. I love how this tie neck embroidered mesh yoke top elevates the look and adds a beautiful feminine flair. It also comes in two other colors (pink and black) that are equally just as stunning. I also recently picked up these jeans from the nsale, which ends tomorrow, so if you have any items you’ve been thinking about now is the time to get them! These jeans fit true to size and are the best fitting jeans I own, though petite heights may need to cuff them a bit like I did above. The problems of short people, haha. 

Be sure to check back in tomorrow for a very special 3rd birthday post for Ava! Along with Ava, Barack Obama and Meghan Markle are also celebrating their birthdays. She’s in good company :)

Good morning, friends! This is one outfit that completely has me swooning with its beautiful flow and showstopping floral patterns. Its as if I’m floating on air with how this skirt moves. Even the sleeves have a pretty movement to them. The flower appliqués on the mesh sleeves of the top are absolutely stunning! While the skirt and top together have an elegant feel to them, this top could also be worn with a pair of jeans for an elevated casual look. All of these details create one magical romantic look. The top runs true to size.

Good morning and welcome to August! This month is a special one since it’ll be Ava’s third birthday. I can hardly believe she’ll be turning three. Where did all of that time go?! I feel like I was just holding her in my arms for the first time in the hospital when she was born. She’s very excited to be turning three. It’s been a big topic of conversation lately, lol.  

It’s no secret I’ve been enchanted by all things yellow this summer. Many of my outfits have included the happy color either with the accessories or as the centerpiece of an ensemble. This particular look, with a gorgeous floral wrap dress, steps things up a notch creating a monochromatic silhouette. This darker shade of yellow is perfect for transitioning into fall as well. The dress is currently on sale for only $14 and fits true to size.

Another day, another red dress! This was the first rain free day we had, which meant heading outside for the entire day! Ava and I visited various places, but stopped at one of our local parks for the majority of the time. It was refreshing to see and feel some sunshine and to spend time with others enjoying all that summer has to offer. This shirtdress is a vintage dream! It’s included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which ends August 5th. These red bow flats, which I am obsessed with, are also a part of the sale. The red color is striking and the bow on the flats is adorable. Top notch with good details. I had so many people come up to me on our day out to tell me how much they liked the outfit, which to me, is clear that it’s a winner! Both fit true to size. I’m wearing a 0p in the dress.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’ve has this skirt for quite some time now that I originally purchased from ModCloth. I’ve always had a “thing” for this print since it reminds me so much of the blue and white antique pattern you see on tea cups, plates, or bowls. I wanted to give this skirt a little refresh with this ruffle crop top that has the most seductive back, or lack there of, haha. Honestly though, the back is my favorite part of the top. It’s quintessentially summer. The 24k rose gold heart earrings (rose gold!!) are quite a delicate beauty. They’re elegantly designed, lightweight, and the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Humble Chic has always been a go-to for me when I’m looking for some delicate jewelry. The hearts not only evoke a sense of romance, but also charm and are a chic alternative to the traditional hoop style. You can use the code AMANDAHEART  for 35% off of the heart earrings in any color or size! The code is good for today Wednesday the 25th through Thursday the 26th.

Good morning, friends! Lately, I’ve been smitten with anything and everything yellow. I can’t seem to get enough of the cheery sunshine color! When I saw this yellow floral top, it was a no brainer for me. It’s a lightweight chiffon material, perfect for any summer outing. This would also make a great top to wear to work with a blazer. It’s extremely versatile and fits true to size. There’s also eighteen total designs for this top. Variety is the spice of life! 

 

Did anyone go see Mama Mia Here We Go Again this past weekend? I saw it and loved it!  The actors all did a great job and the story was very touching. The last scene with Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfreid (mother and daughter in the movie) was so beautifully done. I could not stop crying watching it. You’ll know why when you see it. It reminded me so much of my mother and I with Ava.

I’m also impressed by the quality of the material (lightweight) and how this dress could be worn to work, a weekend BBQ, or to the beach. It works for so many different occasions all while remaining totally chic!

Even better, this dress made to feel as if you’re wearing a comfy t-shirt and trust me, it is sooooo comfortable to wear! The ruffles add a nice touch and give the dress a little feminine flair. I also adore the dusty rose shade, which is also perfect for fall. It’s my go-to shade of pink once the leaves start turning. I pulled out my other dusty rose accessories, including these bow back heels that I’m absolutely in love with! I’m such a sucker for bows. They're also very comfortable and run true to size.

I’ve been wearing red, white, and blue quite a bit lately. Blame it on the 4th of July, but they’re also a truly classic Summer combo of colors. Stripes will always be one of my favorite prints to wear. They’re a go-to in my wardrobe. I tend to favor a small or medium size stripes and stay away from large or bold ones, though I do have one large stripe top. This is definitely a look to keep in mind when thinking of the summer holidays as well including Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day.

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. Some places near me had even started to do their fireworks display, which is always a treat to see and quite magical. It’s one of my favorite parts about the 4th of July! 

This romantic ensemble started with this beautiful Lavender Swiss Dot Top with a subtle bell sleeve. I love a playful sleeve! I went with a monochromatic color scheme and also wanted the outfit to have a flow about it, which I think adds to the romantic vibe. A pleated skirt has a lovely swish movement to it, while the tapered bell sleeve also helps add some movement to the top.

I love how easy going the ensemble is with a flowy lightweight top hat has a stunning lace back, some skinny jeans, and a little pop of color with the shoes. My go-to bag in the summer is typically a straw or wicker one with a roomy clutch being perfect to carry all of your essentials from day to night. 

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!! We’re supposed to have a pretty decent heat wave coming through. Also, I was able to finally go see Avengers: Inifinity War. OMG, so many people died!! I was kind of blown away thinking, did that all really just happen?! I’m a little late in getting to see it and I didn’t read anything about the movie so it was a total surprise. I’m crossing my fingers for Marvel to pull some movie magic and bring some of the characters back to life.
