GINGHAM PEPLUM TOP

I seriously wish I had more tops like this gingham peplum top! I love light and flowy tops and I especially love the the peplum shape this one has! Usually peplum looks a little dressy (in my opinion), but I love the casual relaxed look this one has. You know I can’t say no to gingham! I get a lot of comments on my bag and so many people think it’s a Chloe ‘Drew’ bag buttt, it’s not! It’s such a great dupe for a great price! It’s all leather, made really well, and they have a ton of colors!

How was everyone’s 4th of July?? The 4th is one of our faves! Porter did great during the fireworks show this year so that was a nice change from last year(woo-hoo)!

We are getting new kitchen counter tops installed at the end of this month so I’m painting our cabinets… such a pain! Thankfully the lady at Jerry’s (local home improvement store) knew what she was doing and gave me really good products to work with! I’ll keep you posted on how bad I screw it up!

It’s almost Friday!!  Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend!

Military Romper

You probably know by now I love anything with a military/field look to it! I love and have jackets and vests, so I was in need of  a romper! (and now I feel like I need pants as well) This romper is so so so comfortable! I love how it has a loose fit so it almost looks like two pieces. I’m wearing a size small, if I had bought an extra small I don’t think it would have fit.

I’ll be the first to say not all rompers are created equal. It’s definitely hard to order them online not knowing how they will fit. In my opinion, you could order this one without worrying about any funky fitting issues. I think it’s true to size and if you have a shorter torso definitely go for an extra small.

How was everyone’s 4th of July?! I love Harrisburg especially on the 4th! Porter loved the parade and got so much candy! He did great during the fireworks and John and I thoroughly enjoyed our yearly fried “fair” food!

I went with my friends to see Me Before You, finally!!! Of course I bawled like a baby and actually (minus a few things) liked the movie more! I never like the movie more than the book, so that was a nice surprise. I also finished Angela’s Ashes and am over halfway done with The Glass Castle, which I’m loving so far!

I have been on such a book craze.  Help me out with some more you love and I will check them out!

The Spring, Summer, and Fall Suede Skirt!

Suede Skirt

I love getting the absolute most out of the clothing in my closet, so anything I can wear for more than  one season I am happy with! In the fall, I wore a suede skirt with a turtleneck and thigh high boots. It was super comfy and I knew in the spring/summer I would be able to wear it styled for warmer weather.

My off shoulder crop top is is from H&M and their sizing is always a little tricky and its hard to know how its going to fit. This top is a size 10 and in my opinion, I would say it equals out to a size medium.  Remember always try it on first!

Did anyone do anything special with their husbands or dads on Father’s Day? On Sunday my sister-in-law got married so we spent Father’s Day at Shotgun Creek. Such a beautiful park with everything you need to have a great time!

I finished the book You before Me a couple of weeks ago and my friends and I are going to see it this Saturday! I liked the book, but I’m hoping the movie is better! Most movies aren’t, but I heard this one is! My book club is reading Game of Thrones now, and I actually really like so far! I haven’t watched any of the T.V series so I’m going into it super naive!

Happy Friday Loves!!!

PLANET BOX LUNCHBOX

We had the most perfect day to try out our new Planet Box Lunchbox! Confession time… I’m really picky about how my food is stored! I can’t handle anything in the bread, cracker, cookie, family stored in a plastic baggie. Fruit, veggies, and nuts are fine, anything else, no way! This is why I was so excited about my Planet Box! I love that that there’s a guide for how much to pack, I didn’t have to put Porter’s yogurt or dip in a a bunch of different plastic containers, and the portioning is perfect! There are three different lunchboxes to choose from so you can choose which design best fits your eating routine. I chose the Rover because Porter, John, and I like variety when we eat so no matter who I’m packing a lunch for it’s the perfect portions for us.

I loved not having a ton of trash after our picnic! No brown paper bag or plastic baggies to throw away! I can’t wait to take it when we go hiking, I hate having to pack a ton of different containers or baggies when the the goal is to keep your carrying load minimal and then having all the empty containers and trash to carry! John and I both tend to forget our plastic containers either at work or in the car and then they stink so bad, not with this! The clean up was so easy and didn’t retain any smell!

The carrying bag was perfect for our picnic! It fit Porter’s sippy cup, utensils, lunchbox, and his Boogie Wipes! I had everything I needed all in one bag! I really like that that Planet Box is practical for everyone, not just moms! Go check out the different designs they have, there’s something for everyone!  Note:  They have Bambini Eugene listed as a store you can buy these at!  Go and support a local shop!
