This isn’t the first time I lusted after star sandals. A few years ago I first came across this pair of Loeffler Randall sandals and was smitten. I loved the star details and ankle wraps, but couldn’t justify the price at the time. The following year I bought a star and tassel pair somewhat impulsively from a Shopbop sale, but admittedly I haven’t gotten much use from them. Unlike the gold star pair, they’re multi-colored and LOUD (seen here). This year I was wanting a more versatile pair and I found several to share at every price point!
Summer has always been my favorite season, there are just so many fun things to celebrate! I also love how my personal style is a bit more low maintenance when it’s hot. I kind of give my hair and skin a breather by spending less time heat styling and putting on much makeup and embrace a more natural look. The same holds true style-wise too and I wanted to share my go-to summer wardrobe staples. Each of these pieces can be mixed and matched and styled in so many different ways. This would also be a great packing outline if you’re heading out of town in the summer months!
When I was pregnant one of the questions I was asked the most was if I was going to nurse my baby. I always answered, of course, what could be so hard?! I was so naive then. HA! Nothing prepared me for how hard breast feeding was. It’s really a full time job between learning how, getting the baby to latch and how often you have to do it, especially at first. Now that I’m three months in I feel like I’m finally starting to get it.
In our house we consider the start of summer Memorial Day, but the official start to summer is just a couple of weeks away! I know I’ll be spending a lot of time at the beach and pool and wanted to share my favorite swimwear for the upcoming months. There’s such a huge variety these days so I’m breaking down my top 3 favorite styles below.
