Real-Life Stay-At-Home-Mom Outfits- Summer 2021

Over on Instagram, I did a poll to see if you guys still like to see my real-life everyday outfits and an overwhelming amount of people said yes!  I always feel like now that I don't have a job to go to every day it gets harder to share the actual outfits I wear daily.  I often find myself planning my outfits and staging most of them for my Instagram and blog content.  I don't think that there is anything wrong with wanting my content to look pretty, but not everything is always perfect pretty. 

 2 Casual Ways to Style a Neutral Dress

As everyone has been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale the last couple of weeks, I have been shopping for look-a-like items from the sale for less.  (You can check out all my favorite splurges and saves from my recent post HERE!!)  One of my favorite items in the nsale was this neutral-colored cotton midi dressI loved its style, so I knew I had to find a similar dress for less.  I ended up finding this crew neck neutral-colored midi dress on Amazon for $13 less than the Nordstrom dress.  I am so happy with my purchase.  This dress fits perfectly!  It's true to size (I'm wearing a small) and it hits me at the perfect length, which is not always easy for me when buying midi dresses because I'm only 5'1.  Most are either knee length or maxis on me.

Travel Outfit Ideas from a Pilot's Wife

 Let's talk about travel outfits today.  This is a topic I've been wanting to cover for a while.  I've written posts on travel outfits in the past, but today I wanted to dive deeper into the topic.  Last month my husband and I went on a trip together for our anniversary. (Read about it HERE).  It had been a while since I had last flown so I went to Pinterest for some travel outfit ideas.  I am not going to lie, I was a little disappointed in what I found. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Splurge or Save

 It's that time of the year again.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and I'm sure that you have seen at least one blogger do a try-on haul of the sale by now on Instagram.  I'm not going to lie, I actually do enjoy seeing what everyone buys.  I mean I would be excited too if I got to shop the sale the first week and leave with six bags full of goodies.  However, I have to wait until the sale goes public on July 28th to shop it.  This isn't a bad thing though.  It actually gives me plenty of time to plan out my wishlist and think about the items I really want, then enough time to talk myself out of it and look for affordable options. 

6 Ways to Wear Biker Shorts

I don't know about you but I got pretty excited when I saw that biker shorts were back in style.  As a kid in the early 90's I loved wearing biker shorts.  I had little matching sets with matching skirts.  They were the best. 

9 Affordable Effortless Summer Outfits

Summer is here and I am feeling very busy lately with life.  Nothing major is going on, it's just keeping up with daily life that is getting me feeling like I don't have time for very much.  Some days it's difficult just to find time to shower and get ready for the day.  I really don't have much energy to put into thinking about what to wear for the day, that's why I've been keeping my outfits effortless this summer.

Baby Girl is One!!!

My baby girl has turned one and I can't believe how fast the year has gone.  I wasn't sure how I would feel about this big milestone, but I am actually feeling really excited about having a one-year-old.  Knowing that Anna is my last baby has given me a sense of peace and contentment that I didn't feel the first time around.  It has allowed me to really enjoy and take in every stage of this first year.  I've just loved watching her grow and become her own little person.

What I Wore in Las Vegas

Last week, Kevin and I snuck off to Las Vegas to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.  It was our first vacation in over a year and the first time we left both Jack and Anna over night anywhere.  It was a much needed get away for us after this long pandemic year. 

Walmart Finds- Memorial Day Look

It's no secret that Walmart has really stepped up their game in the fashion business over the last few years.  They went from a store that people felt embarrassed about buying their clothes from, to a store that people proudly clothes shop at and share their finds all over the internet.  I hugely support what they are doing on the fashion front.  They are selling affordable stylish clothes that everyone has access to, no matter how big or small their budget may be.  I have shopped at Walmart here and there over the years, but now that I am doing the majority of my shopping online,  Walmart has become one of my top 5 stores that I shop for clothes at.

Casual mom friendly summer wardrobe capsule

 Summer is all about slowing down and not taking life so seriously.  We all get out of our normal routine a little in the summertime.  Kids are out of school, there's more vacations and we're outside more often.  Our wardrobe usually shifts to the casual side.  I like to keep my summer outfits easy.  I don't like to think about it, so it's always nice to have a wardrobe full of casual summer staples.
