Summer Uniform

When I saw this print at Loft I knew I needed to add it to my closet!  This fun print came in a top, dress, and these darling shorts!  All of these pieces are also currently 50% off.  I have a thing for shorts that have a print to them, so of course I went with the shorts!  I have worn them a few different ways that you can check out on Instagram, but I have loved this look the best.

I spend three mornings a week from 7:45- 12:00 at the ball diamond with my boys.  Getting dressed in the morning on these days are always a bit tough, because temps drastically change in that 4 hour time frame.  When I am in doubt on what to wear I go back to my summer uniform.  This always includes cute shorts, a tank, and simple jewelry.  What is your go to style in the summer?

Matilda Jane is a name that is mainly associated with fun and whimsical clothing for young girls.  As a mom of boys I have not had much of a chance to explore the wonderful world of Matilda Jane.  I have loved their pieces for young girls and thanked god that he knew I would be poor if I had girls.

 

 

This past year I became aware that Matilda Jane is not just for kids.  They have a women’s line too!  I loved the fun prints, and the built-in pattern mixing that most pieces offer.  I wasn’t sure though that their style would fit mine.  I was super excited when Taylor a local Trunk Keeper contacted me and wanted to share some of the pieces that Matilda Jane offers.  I got to try on most of the spring pieces and I loved each and everyone!

 

 

Matilda Jane only puts out their lines twice year and it is slowly released over the following months to build on their collections.  At the end of the season (usually January and July) typically they host their End of Season Sale.  Matilda Jane is currently having their end of season sale with up to 40% off on a ton of women’s and girls’ pieces.

 

 

One of my favorite pieces was the Sunday Best Dress.  I loved the carefree and easy style that is perfect for twirling!  The print is what first caught my eye when looking through the pieces.  I loved the combination oranges, yellows, and pinks and how it created a feminine floral feel.  The prints are designed by an in house artist exclusively for Matilda Jane.

 

My youngest decided to jump in on the photo and I couldn’t help but add it!  He is always the first one to tell me how beautiful I look!

Another reason why I loved this dress was the style!  I loved the neck detail that is definitely in trend this summer season!  This dress can be worn with or without a belt depending on the silhouette that you want.  I loved it both ways!  I added turquoise accessories to continue the summer feel.  Since the dress and accessories were bold I went neutral with my shoe choice.  These have quickly become a favorite pair of mine!  They are comfortable and go with so many dresses and skirts.

 

 

I ended up ordering a few items Monday from Matilda Jane.  I couldn’t resist adding more to my closet.  Be on the look out this week for how I am styling all of my Matilda Jane pieces!  Let me know what you end up getting and which looks are your favorite!

Summer Trends: Distressed Denim Shorts

SALE Alert:  These shorts are currently 50%!  All shorts at Loft are either 40, 50 or 60% off!

I have been wanting a pair of distressed denim shorts for a few summers now.  I have not been able to find a pair though that fit my requirements.  One I didn’t want to much distressing.  I didn’t want all of my bits hanging out for the world to see!  Two I needed a pair that were long enough!  I hate the feeling of not being fully covered and having to pull down my shorts constantly.  The last requirement was of course the overall fit!  I have always loved Loft shorts so I was excited when I saw they had some with distressing.  I knew I had to try this pair!

I ordered these shorts originally through my friend Kristin (@Kleightstyle) over the phone at her Loft.  I went with my normal size 4, and waited anxiously for them to arrive.  I was hoping to take them on spring break with me!  They ended up arriving in time, but they were a tad snug.  I wanted a looser fit and for the shorts to sit at my hips.  I ended up taking them back and found them in my store!  I tried a size 6 and the fit was exactly what I wanted.

I knew I would love these shorts, but I never thought I would want to wear them all the time!  I have to force myself some days to choose another pair!  They are incredibly comfortable, and I love the way they look with so many of my current clothes.  They have definitely become a closet staple! How do you like to wear your distressed denim shorts?

Date Night with Koolaburra by UGG

Summer is in full swing here in our household!  I feel like we have been running nonstop since April.  Between baseball for both of our boys, and soccer for one of them we are running ragged!  Once a month hubby and I try to get a night out with just the two of us.  It doesn’t always happen especially in the height of sport’s season.  With the end of baseball we are planning a date night for just the two of us.  When we go out we love to have  a nice dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.  I normally indulge on these nights since they are few and far between.

Since I know our date night is on the horizon, I have begun to outfit plan.  For date nights, I like something special that I feel confident and sexy in, without being over the top!  Summer is a perfect time to show a little skin yet remain modest.  This high neck top is in one of my favorite color palettes.  I am not sure why, but I am always drawn to neutrals.

 

 

I am also drawn to golds and leopard print when I go neutral with my colors.  I love the way that they casually accent one another.  These Marlana sandals by Koolaburra from UGG were the perfect pairing!  I love the slight wedge that helps elongate my legs, but aren’t too high that I will be uncomfortable by the end of the night.

 

Before collaborating with Koolaburra, I never realized that UGG made anything other than boots.  I was not disappointed by the choices on their site!  Koolaburra has everything from boots, sandals, sneakers, even slippers!  These Marlana beauties are extremely comfortable!  They have a padded insoles that makes these sandals perfect for all day wear not just for a night out!  The zip up back make it very easy to slip them on and go!  What is your go to look for date nights?
