I hope you all had an amazing long weekend with family and friends…did you? I know I did! I’m so grateful for the many brave soldiers who we honor and remember over this special weekend. It’s definitely not about sales and an extra day off work. It’s certainly nice to get that extra time with friends, but let’s also remember the reason. We’re so lucky. God bless America!
With that being said, we opened our pool this weekend and it was a frigid 70 degrees Saturday. That might sound warm to you, but let me tell you, it’s not. The kids got in, I did not. By yesterday, it had heated up to 75, so I did get in, but it wasn’t a long swim! We celebrated on our back deck southern style with lots of sliders, potato salad and fixings…it was a lot of fun. And it was quite adorable to see baby L in her little heart swimsuit (last year she was just four months, so I’m really enjoying this!).
Last week I was sent a pair of white Leigh boyfriend jeans from Hudson. They’re distressed…they’re comfy…they’re fabulous. And I’m not even joking. These jeans rock my heel-wearing world. They look pretty darn amazing with heels, and what a great jean to wear around with the kids…I can move in them…I can live in them. My first pair of Hudsons were a bootcut just after I had little C. and they were a breath of fresh air compared to others that cut off my circulation. Obviously boyfriend jeans are meant to be comfy, so it’s truly a win here. I love a trend that’s completely wearable. These are coming to the beach with me next week…squeal!
I love (love!) pairing white jeans with chambray and I actually found this one a few years ago at the J.Crew outlet mall…score! I actually took the last one off the poor mannequin. And the red heels? They’re by Report and they’re one of my go-to’s because every girl should own a pair of classic red pumps in her closet. Mark my word on that.
Know what else is completely changing my life? My new wristlet phone wallet sent to me from GiGi New York. I’ve long been a fan of GiGi’s monogrammed handbags (here’s my green clutch), and since I cracked my iPhone several months ago and recently had it repaired, I’ve been verrrrrry picky about my case. This not only holds my phone in a handy little pocket inside, it has slots for four credit cards (so needed…duh) and my ID. I can just zip and unzip on the go…and the wristlet is handier than you could ever imagine. I can totally just slip it on my wrist and carry baby at the same time. Of course, it also has my initials monogrammed once again. It’s available in several materials (I got the stone embossed python like my clutch) and 10 colors (mine is Desert Rose and I absolutely adore!). The wristlet retails for $115 (plus $15 for personalization). Trust me, you need one of these.
