Trend Spin Linkup- Summer Style

#romper, Skirt, Summer fashion, trend linkup

Hey Y’all!

Summer is here and so are the hot temperatures especially in the South. Texas gets hotter and hotter and summers tend to last a bit longer than usual.

So I’m finding it hard to find pieces other than shorts and a tee. So thankful for maxi dresses and rompers.

#summerfashion, #romper, #trend, maxiskirt

Romper: Ross (Sleeve less Option, Similar , Love the color on this one, with an eyelet top)

Sandals: No longer available (Similar and on sale!!, I need to go back for these)

We took a short trip to the beach last month and I went on a quick trip to my go to stores to find a few dresses or rompers and I found this beauty!!

I love it and I’m secretly looking for more styles and patterns!

I love that it’s super versatile! It’s the perfect outfit for any mom. I can bend down to pick up my toddler in the middle of a tantrum without any problem and still look fashionable enough for a day out on the town.

And guys I promised  I’m looking for an at home tanning lotion or spray or something to make me look a bit summer ready! #pastywhite #neverinstyle

I’m excited to join Laura and Erin in their weekly Trend Spin Linkup and I hope you can join us too.

One Dress 4 Ways

This post contains affiliate links! Thank you for supporting my blog.

Hey Gals!

Spring and Summer are the seasons for dresses and I cannot get enough of them! The only problem we sometimes face when we purchase dresses is the lack of outfit options for the future.

Today I want to take the challenge and make easy for all of us! You can do this with any swing dress but what I love about this dress is the peplum aspect, but let’s get started!

#summerdress #1dress4ways

1. As Is

This dress is very lightweight and if you know me in real life you have probably seen me wearing it multiple times! I wear it with these flats. When the temps drop (I doubt it will happen in the next 8 months in Texas) you can pair it with boots!

#summerdress #1dress4ways

2. Kimono It

Another thing that comes with spring are Kimonos!

One of my favorite accessories. (I have a post on my favorites coming up) In reality, kimonos are a match with almost everything in your closet! This is my favorite way as it gives the dress a whole entire look!

3. Tied up

The new way to do every shirt! It always reminds me when I was in junior high and we use to tie our t-shirts! #90skid. Except now there are tons of tutorials out there for different knot looks and many of the shirts bring the knot already! #easypeasy

#summerdress #1dress4ways

4. Peplum Top

My second favorite. I love it this way and it’s super simple! Tuck most of the dress in your shorts and start pulling little by little until you get the desired length all around.

Hope you can see your dresses in a new light and get the most use out of them! And don’t worry we will be going to the beach this weekend so I can get some sun on them legs!

Chemical Free Laundry Scent Booster

This post contains affiliate links! Thanks for supporting my blog.

essential oil, young living

I’m all about saving money and I have mentioned it on here before but something I don’t skimp on is my family’s health. I made the switch to essential oils about 8 months ago and has saved my life and a few bucks too!

Im still learning but I wanted to answer one of the most asked questions I get.

What else do you use them for?

Let me be very honest, the oils are not cheap. I think that’s the main reason it took me so long to finally sign up. Now 8 months later I regret that decision full heartedly. I wish I had done it sooner! They don’t work like the oils you buy at the store! Most people make the mistake of buying them and thinking they’ll work the same way! They dont!

There are so many ways to use them that I couldn’t possibly list them in one post, but I today I want to share just one of their many uses aside from diffusing,

Laundry Scent Booster.

I make a huge batch and it lasts me up to 3 weeks or more and the cost is about $1.50 or less for the batch. Since I use the oils for other areas in my home it would be a bit difficult to calculate the exact amount but I’m very positive is even less than that!

Here is what you need:

An airtight container like this one or this.(comes in a set of 2) Great deal!

15 Drops of the Essential oils of your choice. (I use Lemon and Purification)

2 cups of Epsom Salts ( you can get yours at your local store cheaper)

1/2 cup of Baking Soda  (Great Price) I also use this for my carpet cleaner!

That is it!

Check the video below for the instructions and feel free to comment below or email me if you have any questions!

The Perfect Little White Dress

This post contains affiliate links! Thank you for supporting my blog.

white dress, summer and spring dress

Hey Dolls!!

Every week we patiently, and sometimes not so patiently, wait for the weekend. The time we dedicate to our loved one and everything and everyone we neglected since Monday’s alarm went off.  As much as I have tried not to live for the weekend, I must say it’s pretty hard and the saddest thing is that most of the time it flies by!

Skirt

Now, every once in a while we get one of those magical weekends and last weekend was one of them. I think we just get to a stage in life that we just enjoy the little things so much more. When we are younger we tend to always be in a rush and the fastest we can go the better. Which always leaves us missing all of life’s beauty! And then we get that spark, that reminds us to stop and look around and just enjoy this season! This moment just as it is! The last-minute unplanned trip will just give you a new perspective on your day!

This weekend we woke up late, I got a much-needed pedicure and manicure and the rest was spent as a family, you know just the best kind of fun!

We made a quick and definitely unplanned trip down to the coast and back on the same day, an outdoor mall with the grandparents and a very late dinner. We finished our weekend off with a lot of God and even a Sunday afternoon nap! Just the sweetest time!

On Sunday I finally got to wear this dress that has been sitting in my closet for the last 3 weeks, and guess what? I loved it even more on!

 

It’s such a perfect dress for spring and even summer. For cooler mornings and evening, you can add a sweater or a jean jacket and still look amazing! Best this is under $25! Yes under $25 !

Dress/ Shoes (wait for a deal or check these out)

Tip: For shoes, I have been going to JCPenny more since they have a lot of sales and $10 off $15 purchase.

Hope you love it as much as I do and be on the look it for more big savings on Spring and Summer outfits!
