So I’m the girl that swore off crop tops back in the 90s, and when I saw them show their evil heads again last season, I immediately shunned them. But as fashion always does, it grew on me and today’s post is my attempt at the whole “crop top” trend. I love this outfits ability to still look modest and feminine. Both things I’m all about. I’d totally rock this look for a weekend shopping in LA or brunch with my family. Are you a crop topper?

Landyn left last night to spend a week at her dad’s. To say I was a soppy mess would be an understatement. This is the longest she’s been gone for and it’s going to be a tough one on me. I couldn’t sleep last night knowing she wasn’t in the room next to me, I woke up feeling empty, and I still have 6 days to go. I told Josh I was going to redo our entire house to keep my mind busy. I’ll be sure to share the projects I tackle this week.

Have a great week!!!!

Here is a public service announcement for all you that want to come to California for their beaches in June. Don’t do it. Ironically enough, June is the worst time to be at the beach in southern California. It’s usually overcast and COLD, as you can see from these pictures. We took our bikes down to Ventura a few weekends ago and rode along the pier for 15 minutes before high tailing it into the nearest restaurant for lunch and warmth. Had it been July, these shorts would have been the perfect biking ensemble.

Landyn and I are spending the day at Disneyland tomorrow. Its been a few years since I’ve taken her and I really think she’s at the perfect age to experience the Disney magic. I’ll be back next week with some recaps.

Have a fantastic weekend.


“Big Hair Don’t Care”

To say I am completely obsessed with Paper Doll Clothing Co’s quirky “big hair don’t care” racer back tank, is an understatement. I don’t even have big hair, and I love rocking it. Because most day’s I have that messy mom hair and it seems rather appropriate. It’s super soft and the tri-blend grey can be styled so many different ways for summer.

We are slowly working on some big changes around here and I can’t wait to share. I am at the mercy of my web designer at this point…patience Lindsay.

Have a great week.

I’m back. Please excuse my brief absence. We are wrapping up our last and final week of preschool and things have been busy to say the least. I’m super nostalgic about my one and only baby finishing up preschool. As if that isn’t enough, our new elementary school decided to have the “kindergarden orientation” this week too. Perfect timing. It’s a good nostalgic though. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to attend some of the best schools and watching Landyn spread her wings is a good thing. I just have a hard time letting go. I always have.

I’ve styled this top 34566 different ways since receiving it, and my bestie over at Hazel & Olive Boutique just restocked her best selling shirt. A summer must have you guys. Scoop it up before it sells out again.

Have a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back next week.
