I'm Back...

Dress: Eliza J (wearing 0p) also love thisthis and this, Shoes: Stuart Weitzman similar here (on sale for $49), Sunglasses: GucciThese are almost identical for $20. Earrings: similar here, Bracelets: The Styled Collection, Necklace: Made by Mary, Stroller: City Select, Andi's dress: Ruby and Bloom




Happy Memorial Day! I really can not believe that it has almost been a year since I have done a blog post! The time goes by so fast. I choose to give up blogging for the past year so that I could really focus on my kids. Andi and Lincoln are so close together in age and as you all probably know I don't have help with them. So I felt like in order for me to be the best mom I could be something had to give. I had to much on my plate. So blogging was what I had to quit for a while. 

As I am sure you know I still did my best to keep up with my social media, which is a job in itself! But actual blog posts are much more time consuming and I felt like I couldn't so it all unless I hired someone to help me with my kids. And for me personally that just isn't what I wanted to do. I am so lucky that I had the option to give up a part of my job to stay home with my kids. I know not everyone can do that and I am so thankful that I was able to. 

Andi and Lincoln are only little once and I will never get this time back and like I said it sure does go fast. So I am really happy with the decision that I made. But I feel like I am ready to start bogging again. Andi and Lincoln are a little older (3 and 2) and Andi is going to be starting camp this Summer and school in August. And they are both just a little more independent. Don't get me wrong I am not going to be blogging 5 days a week. I don't want to se to high of an expectation for myself and then feel disappointed when I can't get it done. So I am planning to start posting twice a week here and still keep up with my regular social media posts and just seeing how it goes. 

But on to my outfit, I LOVE this dress! It is literally the perfect dress for summer. I have worn it so many times and a bunch of different ways. It is super easy to dress up or dress down and I love that it comes with a belt! It comes in regular and petite and it runs pretty true to size. 

Also, I know I talked bout these dupes of my Gucci sunglasses on Instagram but I wanted to link them here for you guys as well. They are almost identical. the only difference is they don't have the double G on the side. But they are only $20 and I am so excited that I found them. I wear mine all of the time to the beach or the pool so if something happens to them I don't feel so bad because they were only $20. 

Like always, thank you all so much for all of the support throughout the years. It is crazy that I started this little blog almost 5 years ago. And it is even crazier that some of you have been following me from the begining. It means so much so thank you.
