We’re in the home stretch to Christmas and you know what that means? Last minute gift shopping! I’d like to think of myself as a professional procrastinator when it comes to my holiday shopping every year. On Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I have such great intentions but often don’t get to everyone on my list. Which means that last-day-to-ship-in-time-for-Christmas-Eve banner in bold print at the top of every website finally gets me to act fast! SO! I’m here to help all the last-minute folks, like myself, find some incredible gifts certain to bring holiday cheer to all the ladies in your life.
Oh Everlane, you consistently have me swooning with every new arrival. Clean, classic and effortlessly chic…this brand just nails it every time. Pre-baby I shopped regularly at Everlane, then once pregnancy happened it was time to box up my high waist jeans and bring on the giant tees and stretchy leggings. Alas, my postpartum body is slowly but surely allowing me to wear all the high rise denim, skirts and cinched dresses I’ve been lusting after for months.
My current daydream on repeat lately: basking in the sun, a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc in hand (omg yes), the soothing sound of waves crashing and that “ooh I look good” feeling in a swimsuit that hugs you in all the right places. Grab your cat-eye sunnies, pull your hair into a top knot, add a turban-style silk scarf and sip that wine in style. And while this Amalfi Coast-inspired daydream might actually be a neighborhood-kiddie-pool-one-piece-ball-cap-workout-shorts-iced-coffee-by-the-gallon kinda reality, a girl can dream, right? 😉 Sharing 12 adorable swimsuits that’ll make you feel like a million bucks this summer…whether you’re in vacay mode or #realreality mode. From pretty prints (florals, rainbow, polka dots) to feminine silhouettes (high rise, dainty straps, ruffles), it’s time to enjoy the summer sunshine in any of these darling suits.
Which one is your favorite? I’ve got my eye on two & eight…sucker for a high rise swimmie…and gingham is always so timeless!

Warm days, breezy nights (…or full humidity if you’re in Texas, ha!), sunset dates on a pretty patio, backyard cookouts with friends…ohh the possibilities! Time to show off your latest pedicure and rock some new summer sandals. I am LOVING the adorable, minimalist options out right now. Lots of cute slides, fun wedges and ankle straps are IN – and I’m all about it. Throw on a flirty summer dress or pair with high rise denim shorts and darling tee (like this classic and affordable option here) and slip those feet into kicks that make you feel extra special!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about putting together an outfit when you know you’ll be nursing your baby, it’s this: BUTTONS! They’re my secret weapon when it comes to shopping for nursing-friendly tops and dresses that make you feel GOOD. (…Because as my fellow mamas know, wearing workout gear on repeat can often be the norm…even when there’s no workout on the agenda!). Grab your favorite pair of high rise denim, some boyfriend shorts (comfort is key!) or even your maternity jeans – whatever bottoms you feel comfortable wearing, and pair with any of these cute tops. Whip out some classic sneakers or summer sandals for the dresses! Sharing more of my nursing secrets below…

Hello, gift guide season! If there’s one gift that keeps on giving, it’s anything c-o-z-y! Perhaps the most overused word in the blogger world during the holidays (ha!), but for good reason…cozy things make you feel AMAZING and HAPPY. I don’t know about y’all, but the older I get the more of a homebody I become. I stand by the power of a pair of Ugg slippers (happy feet year round…what’s not to love?) or a calming face mask (100% yes to a pamper sesh!).
