Here we go....

Here we go...I'm not obsessed with much this season, but one thing I am obsessed with is the side striped jean!

I am utterly obsessed with this trend, especially with the above Veronica Beard tuxedo stripe jean, I don't think I can get these into my closet fast enough
While the Veronica Beard is definitely on the pricey side you can get into this uber flattering trend for as little as $50

From AE, to Zara to Mother and so many more I got you covered on one of this seasons hottest trends
Click through the slideshow below to see some of my favorites of the season

What do you think of the tuxedo stripe trend??

Now & Later

Hi Guys! I know I know I've been MIA lately, my sister even asked me if I was still blogging, I'm still here but I've been enjoying every minute of this fleeting summer.
And while fall is creeping closer, I have yet to really see anything that I have to have, and that's why I started this blog to share things that I love, anything else just feels forced.
With that being said....when I came across this Get off my Back sweater I automatically added it to my cart, you all know I love my graphic sweaters, and I can wear it Now with a pair of cut-offs and later with a pair of jeans like these Rag & Bones with the trend of the moment the step hem. I've been searching for a fresh new pair of sunglasses all season, but it seems like every pair is mirrored and mirrored sunglasses are just not my thing, these Carrera sunglasses are classically cool and are just what I've been searching for. Now this Gucci bucket bag well that's just my thing, the striped strap is perfect for now or later, and who doesn't need a fresh pair of kicks, last year I had to have the grey Tretorns now it's all about the navy, perfect for cut-offs or whatever the fall throws at me

Double Duty


You guys know that once the warm weather hits I basically live in Levi's cut offs, but I do love wearing light summer dresses

So lately I've been pairing the two together

This off the shoulder stunner is actually a $24 dress, while it's a no brainer to throw this dress on with a pair of wedges or flip flops I love how it also tucks easily into a pair of shorts, it's like getting two looks for the price of one

Don't you love how a simple summer dress transforms into a totally different look when you pair it with shorts? Double duty dressing at it's best!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hey Guys!
I am up early this morning filling my cart with lots and lots of goodies from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It is literally one of my favorite sales and if you are a Nordstrom card holder early access starts NOW and goes until July 20th, and then the sale is available to the public but unfortunately many of the hot items will be sold out by then, so my advice is act fast!

I missed out on a great Topshop cardigan last year so I am acting fast this time around, and I always stock up on the dual RevitaLash set and of course denim and I am loving the Frame jeans in the slideshow below, wait....and have you seen the new style of Hunter boots definitely need those!

What's in your cart???

Affordable Summer Dresses


Hey Guys! Today I am talking about affordable summer dresses, who's in??
I don't know about you, but during the summer my laundry load just about triples compared to the rest of the year. It seems like between me and the kids we each go through on average three outfits a day. This means keeping my closet packed with lots of choices for day and night, and it also means lots of strategic shopping. You all know that I am a high low shopper to begin with, so I love hitting up SheIn to find those affordable on trend pieces, that I now the Hubby won't freak out about when the UPS guy comes to the door.

I am loving shirt dresses this summer and I just grabbed this wear everywhere wrap dress, and I have my eye on a few more

Currently in my cart...


Thanks to SheIn for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own

For some reason I have tons and tons of jeans, and bottoms, but I always find myself topless. Heading into the summer I am on the hunt for a bunch of great tops to wear for a stroll through town or a fun night out. I typically do not like to spend a fortune on trendy tops,so I tend to rely on favorites like Zara, Storets and SheIn to keep me on trend without breaking the bank.

So many of these trend don't last more than a season, so why overspend when you can find the same look for less. I would rather save my pennies for those Gucci loafers or that Loewe bag that I can't get out of my head!

Wouldn't you??

Tie One On

A few years ago I became obsessed with these Brazilet bracelets


Brazilets are wish bracelets based on a 200 year old Brazilian tradition. Wrap you Brazilet around you wrist and tie 3 knots making a wish on each knot, it is believed that when the bracelet naturally breaks down and falls off your wishes will come true. I am such a sucker for things like this, I am super superstitious so of course I bought them for my entire family including the Husb, and all of my friends

Fast forward to Memorial Day weekend, perusing Instagram over my morning coffee, I came across this pic from Samantha Yanks, as soon as I saw that bracelet I had to google it....
These Roxanne Assoulin bracelets are based on that Brazilian bracelet I once loved but elevated with these amazing sterling silver beaded messages

I want them all!!! Which is great because you can buy them individually or buy the entire set!
Which one will you choose???

Smile Fearlessly


Call me a skeptic but, I'm not one to fall for that magic pill boasting weight loss, or that lotion that promises to turn back the hands of time, but when I heard about Smile Brilliant I thought this one I had to try.

At 45 years old and a major coffee drinker my teeth definitely needed a brightening, I have tried every whitening toothpaste, strip, gel, paint  and whatever else  you could find in the drugstore, and although my teeth weren't all that yellow to begin with, I never seemed to see any kind of noticeable results from the drugstore products.

Smile Brilliant is a affordable at home teeth whitening system comparable to what you would get from your dentist but for a fraction of the cost, and without any time consuming and pricey dental visits, Smile Brilliant is equally if not more effective.

There are six different systems to choose from, heavy stains to lights stains, sensitive to non-sensitive. I have sensitive teeth so I went with the T6 Sensitive System (average stains) which is $165, included in the kit is a set of impression trays and impression material so you customize your dental trays, it's super easy to do and practically fool proof but if you do make a mistake they include 3 sets of impression materials so you are sure to get a perfect impression of your mouth. You have questions, yes I did too luckily Smile Brilliant's 7 Things to Know before Buying Teeth Whitening answered everything I wanted to know and made me super comfortable using their products.

Once your impression are made you send them back to the Smile Brilliant lab in pre-paid postage envelope, within a few days your custom fitted trays are mailed back to you, and you are on your way to a whiter brighter smile!


I've literally only used my whitening trays 4 times. I am a busy mom and always on the go so I only wear them for about 45 minutes-an hour at a time, but the recommended time is between 1-3 hours, even after just one wear I noticed a difference. As I said my teeth were pretty white to begin with but they had that dull yellow coffee addict tinge, Smile Brilliant has not only brightened my teeth but call me crazy I feel like they are shinier.


Another great feature about Smile Brilliant is that since you already have your own custom trays if you feel like in a few months that you need another round of whitening, you can order a pack of just the whitening gel, without ordering another whole kit.

Why waste your money on those strips that run almost $50 and barely work, your teeth and your smile is the first thing that people notice, we should all invest in our smile and be confident enough to Smile Fearlessly.

Because Sunscreen is not Optional

My skincare regimen is basic, it typically consists of products that can easily be found at Target or Amazon, and then one morning while chilling out to one of Jennifer Fisher's snap stories, I came across Glossier and the The Balm Dotcom. I have to tell you, there was something about the name Balm Dotcom that got me, and it got me good, their Balm Dotcom, can be found in my nightstand, my jacket pocket, my handbag even the husband is using it, personally my favorite is the rose, but the coconut is a close second. Then came The Super Pack, now I am not a serum user, usually eye creme and moisturizer is as far as I go, but something about the Super Pack lured me in, and just like that I am officially a serum convert.
There is something about this company, something about it's products purity, something about the simplicity of the products, so when I heard about their new Invisible Shield Sunscreen, I just knew I had to try it.

This clear watergel based sunscreen promises to instantly absorb into your skin, and not have that heavy greasy, white faced  typical sunscreen feel,
 Added to bag and checked out because sunscreen is not optional. 
Have you tried Glossier yet??

Coachella Bound..

If I were Coachella bound....
 I would probably be one the oldest people there, and would be Shazamming every song because let's face it I either am too old or as cool as I think I am, I'm not cool enough to know any of the bands in the line up, aside from Gaga of course, but if I were going I would be packing something like this easy breezy sunny summer dress

 And pairing it with a great  hat, and some White Girl Sunscreen to protect my skin from the scorching dessert sun, always a cool pair of sunnies, a great pair of hoop earrings with a pop of color, this AMAZING Cult Gaia bamboo bag that is the IT bag of the summer, and a go with everything pair of ankle wrap sandals and I am not only festival ready but summer ready
