Are your kids napping? Good.
Grab a diet coke and click through these links. So much good stuff.
I love when Studio McGee features a new webisode. They are so fun and as a fan, I feel like these videos really connect me to their brand. They also make me fiercely jealous! And fill my brain with lots of dreams. One of my favorite webisodes they did this summer was the Before and After Park City Canyons Remodel.
Watch it below and check out more of their videos here.
Here's to the first day of the last month of summer...
"The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color."
―Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting
...and here's to hoping your Friday night looks something like this.
Check out this gorgeous Island Home, located on Kiawah Island, South Carolina. Perfection.
I love a great Target find, this dress is adorable, affordable and perfect for my Summer Vacay!
Check out designer Erin Fetherston's gorgeous home tour. Layered with soft neutrals her West Hollywood home is so chic and stylish. I love everything, especially how each room flows into the other (and so much gorgeous white.)
Check out the full tour here.
Friday is here! But lets be honest, all these summer days are blurring together. Isn't it wonderful? I've been spending lots of time with my kids, so this Friday Favorites has the subtitle of: Fun things my kids and I are loving.
I splurged on pool toys this year. And I use the word splurge loosely... really I just bought them a few things because my kids were the only kids at the pool without toys. Loving these pool floats from target: watermelon, flamingo and ice cream sandwich. So fun!
Did you make a summer bucket list with your kids? I printed off this simple check list and it's been really fun (and manageable). Movie in the park may have been one of my kids favorites... a Redbox, our laptop, some blankets and a few boxes of candy.
This kinetic sand was recommend on the Young House Love podcast and we give it two thumbs up. Way less messy!
Hands down my favorite summer shoes for my kids. No socks, waterproof and more durable than a flip flop.
But since I mentioned flip flops, I buy my kids Havaianas. They are awesome and last for years.
Hope you are enjoying your summer!
Warm days + lots of playing has me constantly on the go with my kids. I think dressing in summer is really tricky, so I asked a few of my girlfriends what their summer uniform is. Here's what I learned is important:
1. You want your summer uniform to consists of items that are pretty affordable so can you can easily buy in bulk.
2. You want to be comfortable without looking too sloppy. Let's be honest, throwing on baggy shorts and old flip don't scream classy-mom.
3. Keep the color pallet the same, so you can mix and match. Buy all light tops and all dark bottoms.
4. Don't forget the rule of three even in the summer. Whether it is a hat, great pair of sunglasses, or a chunky watch, it will make a difference.
5. And most importantly, you want to be able to get out the door fast. The easier the better.
What's your summer-uniform? I'd love to hear. Comment below!
