Ava’s Rainbow Maxi Dress c/o || Rod Gold Sandals ||

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! What a spectacular weekend we had! First, Saturday July 20th was the 50th anniversary of the Saturn 5 rocket landing on the moon. John F. Kennedy’s dream of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth was not only realized, but celebrated with vigor all these years later. My family has always been big with space and the moon so this was a very cool moment to commemorate. The heat wave was also in full effect, which meant lots of pool time! Luckily, we have family members with pools so we were hopping from one to the other. Ava and I also celebrated National Ice Cream Day on Sunday with some yummy treats from one of our favorite local spots.

A few months back I wore the adult version of this fun rainbow striped maxi here. Recently, Chicwish released the kids version, which makes for some wonderful mommy and me summer moments! Ava was in love with this dress and it’s bright colors. The self ties at the shoulder are adjustable and have the cutest tassels on them along with tassel on the hem of the dress. A word to the wise, hand wash this frock only! I accidentally threw mine into the wash one day and many of the tassels fell off.

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!

Floral Dress || White Disc Hat || Vintage Kate Spade Bag (Similar) || Sandals || Jackie Kennedy Earrings || Pink &  Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o || Ava’s Dress TJ Maxx (Similar) ||

Happy Friday, everyone! For the past three years, Ava and I have always worn matching or similar outfits for Mother’s Day. It’s a tradition that we’re going to keep going for as long as we can! When Ava first saw me in this floral 1940s inspired dress, she said, “mommy, that dress is so beautiful.” She’s really been getting into dressing up and taking photos with me and wanted to dress in her own floral dress for the shoot. She looks so angelic in these photos too. She’s my precious little angel. I was also teaching her how to twirl her skirt during some of these shots. She’s getting the hang of it! It was a gorgeous day outside that we made the most of with many wonderful memories at our favorite spots in the park.

Ava’s dress came from TJ Maxx, which she also wore for Palm Sunday. It’s a great spot to find unique dresses at a great price. I’ve gotten many of hers there over the years. My dress not only boasts a great deal of charm, but also grace with its pink floral cascading throughout the 1940s style embellishments. The bodice has a multitude of pin tucks, centered by a classic winged collar, highlighted by long sleeves (that I rolled up), and a button cuffed for added vintage accent. The wide banded waistline slims and elongates your hourglass while the swing skirt features gentle gathers for a delightful flair. This is one of the most lovely dresses that I own. Everything about it makes me feel at my very best. The sizing for the dress runs small. While the dress does fit, it’s rather tight in the waist. I would suggest going up one size for comfort.

Don't forget to look below for our other Mother’s Day outfits from the past three years! Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mamas out there. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
