As we approach the 1 year mark on August 1st, I’m starting to organize our things, and see what we have and what we still need for a growing baby boy. I’ve also learned what’s super important to have on hand as a mom during summer months, especially for a 11-month-old. Today I’m sharing my *JULY MOM MUST HAVES* with y’all, in hopes of keeping any momma’s out there in the loop on what’s essential at this time. Hope you enjoy, and I’ll be back with an August round-up next month.
There is NO DENYING our front door needs some major TLC. We’ve been planning to paint it for a while now, and quarantine seems like the perfect occasion to get the job done. Speaking of quarantine, I will now be featuring some home updates on here with y’all, as we work on the house through the remainder of the pandemic. Our home was a new build in 2013, but with three pets and a baby, you could say it has seen a lot of wear and tear. So enjoy our first of many *HOME UPDATE* posts, and let me know if you’d like to see more! I will post the AFTER of our front door after we finish the job this weekend.
4th of July Weekend!
This past weekend we loaded up the car, and headed north to Winnetka, IL. We were so excited to visit with Evan’s brother and his family for the 4th of July. Our kiddos are super close in age, so we were eager to reunite them, and let them have some fun. We did so much in just a few days, including taking Mac to the beach for the first time, a visit to the local park, a small block party for the 4th, and lots of time outside. Mac had a ball, and so did we. Other than the long drive, it was a magical long weekend with family. Here’s a quick photo recap for you guys!
POLKA DOT TOP | SHORTS | EARRINGS | SHOES
I’m ALL about the polka dot top this time of year! This top specifically is so ME, and so fitting for my work and off-work wardrobe. Styling it here with shorts and sneakers, you can easily wear this for a fun, summer day out of the house. You can also style these polka dots with white jeans and sandals, or knotted and paired with a midi skirt and wedges.
When you order this shirt for yourself, you’ll be ALL about the polka dots too! This find is super affordable, and obviously very versatile. Did I mention it’s comfortable too? This will not be the last time you’ll see me sporting this polka dot top!
