Omg you guys, my FAVORITE jeans ever are now 25% off! I blogged about them many times including here, here, and here. The fit on these is amazing! If you’re looking for jeans that fit your thighs, hips, and waist properly, then your search is over because THESE ARE IT! The stretch on these is also really great. I wear them almost every day and I love that they’re casual enough to chase my toddler around in or I can dress them up with some heels and a blouse. You’ll need to size down by one size and if you’re in between sizes go ahead and size down by two. I also really love that these go all the way up to a size 22. Good American jeans are a little pricey and these are on sale 40% right now so take advantage, I’m sure they’ll go quick!

Beach Style | Striped Swim Suit Cover Up Kimono

Striped Swim Cover Up: Forever 21 | Athena’s Suit: Nordstrom Rack

 

I love the Missoni style of this striped swim cover up kimono. The chevron stripe and woven knit is classic Missoni. It really looks much more high end than it is. I got a lot of questions about this piece while we were in Kauai. Everyone was surprised when I said it was from Forever 21! It’s on sale right now for just $30, super affordable! I have the corner tied up in this pic but its floor length on me and I’m 5′ 10″. I’m wearing a size large.

Speaking of affordable swimwear, how cute is Athena’s swimsuit?! Toddler swimsuits are the cutest! This one is from Nordstrom Rack, and it’s on sale for just $17!!!

Ok, that’s it for right now because we’re absolutely jetlagged and we have no groceries or diapers so gotta go do #momlife. But I’ll be posting all my outfits from our vacation really soon; can’t wait to show you guys some of the cool shots we got!

Snake Print Shirtdress With Vegan Leather Wedges

Dress | Hat | Purse | Shoes (sold out, similar here and here)

[^ Click links above to shop ^]

This snake print dress is one of my favorite recent purchases. I’ve been telling you guys for a little while now that animal prints are going to be a huge spring/summer trend. This dress is a great piece to add to your wardrobe to be right on trend. I LOVE a versatile piece. The snake print makes it pretty neutral so you can wear it with just about any shoe. It’s still a bit cold here in Las Vegas, so I’m planning on wearing it with tights and over the knee boots. It can also be paired with booties and a cute hat, or sandal and belted at the waist for summertime. I also really love that it buttons all the way down which means that you can also wear it open like a bathing suit coverup.

Moving right along to this oversized extra large wide brim hat which I’m totally obsessed with. I love this piece because it instantly elevates your beach style. I’ve had this hat for years, since like, 2014. Quick story, back in the summer of ’14, I was coming back from a trip to Mexico. I was driving into Las Vegas and called Marc (my baby’s dad) asking him to meet my family and me for lunch. He said he was busy working; it was Memorial Day weekend. It was a little annoyed that he preferred to work instead of meeting up with us but this was typical of him so I said I’d see him later at home. When I got home, he told me that when I called him earlier, he was in the middle of auctioning off a website he’d been working on for the past six months. While we were having lunch, he sold his site, for quite a bit of money too! He decided to celebrate by taking us to Hawaii. This hat was the first thing I bought for that trip, so it holds quite a bit of nostalgia for me.  I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of it.

 

Blue Floral Cropped Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit | Shoes | Bag

This jumpsuit is one of my favorite purchases ever! It’s so soft, lightweight, comfortable and perfect for my upcoming trip to Hawaii. I talked about this piece extensively today on my Instagram stories. In case you missed that, here’s what you need to know. This brand runs small so you need to size up 1-2 sizes. Most of their items are made of this rayon material which does not stretch, at all. The front of this jumpsuit is pretty low cut, however, there is a hook and eye clasp in the front that makes it less revealing. The waist tie is not removable, however, it can be tied in the front or back. There is a hidden back zipper (which I forgot to mention in my stories). This jumpsuit also ties at nape of the neck, there are two really long ties with tassels at the end.

My favorite ark bag dupe is made of bamboo and is under $45! Lastly, these vegan leather (faux leather) espadrille wedges are under $20!
