This past weekend we celebrated my mother’s birthday by heading to the beach for the first time this summer. We took the little guy for his first experience and he loved it. We also stopped by the strand to do a little window shopping at all the cute beach shops. I bought this super lightweight and fun shark stroller for Jayden. As a mom, investing in a small stroller for site seeing or shopping down narrow isle is a must, and if you have a little boy this is a steal for less than $30! I found this Floral two piece bathing suit cover up on line. I love the material because it dries fast so you can go straight from the beach to the shops. Plus it really coordinated with my Becca off shoulder bikini and these pink polarized ray bands. Check out the rest of the outfit below!

When it comes to Texas weather sometimes wearing pants is not an option, but I found this great alternative with my Ruched pants from Buckle. These are so comfy and can be worn dressed up or down, and great for the mom on the go. I love all the colors because you can coordinate with so many different tops. This look I channeled my inner boho with my favorite fringe purse from my previous post and this must have floppy hat for the summer which I also wore in another post. I love my open back detail to this top, and I got it on sale at Charlotte Russe. As a mother shopping on a budget, you would be surprised what cute things you will find on sale. These black wedges are a must have for any wardrobe and are perfect with pants or a dress like I styled in my previous post. Click on the link below and you can get 45% off these wedges!

This past weekend my sister, friend, and fellow blogger Style the Girl, went downtown to visit some of Houston’s local art scene, and some of Houston Blogger’s favorite photo destinations. I wore this super cute and fun pink dress from Sheinside with my favorite yellow espadrilles from CiciHot, which by the way can be purchased on sale for less than $15 in the link below! Can you believe that? When we went to the Lawndale Art Center, I was amazed at the neon wall art. It was a perfect summer backdrop for this dress. I love bold colors for summer! Also making an appearance on the blog is my new favorite fringe purse from JustFab. It’s already sold out so I posted a similar style! I do a lot of online shopping as a mom. It is so convenient, especially when your schedule revolves around the baby. You can find some great deals for less. Check out my links below!

This was a fun date night outfit I wore, and it was all about these shorts! I can’t get enough of how cute the ruffle detail and paisley print. Love all the bright summer colors! I found a link to a clutch similar to the one I got on Mother’s Day from Nordstrom. It is one of my favorite summer clutches because it goes with everything. Check out one of my previous post with this clutch here. I love how I dressed it up with one of my favorite cork wedges. By the way you can get 40% off these wedges by clicking on the link below!

Hey guys so I did this fun product review of Jamberry Nails for a sweet friend of mine. I’ve never tried them until now. I don’t normally get my nails done, I prefer all natural just because I am so active, and do a lot with my hands it is hard to keep nails on. I’m also not a fan of how thick and heavy acrylic or fake nails feel on my fingers. I was pleasantly surprised by how light weight these nails felt in comparison to fake or acrylic nails. It was a ton of fun to sport such a cute design on my nail in the convenience of my own home. The only downside for me, was the application process. It was hard to get some of them to fit straight on my nails, so I had tiny creases on my nails. However, this would make a great investment for someone who loves to do their own nails and change it up with fun and unique designs. For more information, if you are interested in trying this product, click here, and talk to Lyssa one of Jamberry’s independent consultant. Ask how you can become financially independent by working from home and becoming a consultant!
This past weekend we went to zoo for the first time with our little one. Unfortunately we got rained out before we got to see the new gorilla exhibit. I love my outfit I wore to the zoo. I bought this straw hat to keep the sun from my face. It’s a perfect summer hat for all your summer activities. It coordinates with everything. My top is a fun floral sheer, off the shoulder, crop top paired with my favorite BKE Mollie shorts, and gladiator sandals from my previous
http://noprescriptionrxbuyonline.com post. I have these shorts in 3 other different colors because they are a great alternative to denim shorts. My bag is my newest purchase. I love it because its nautical stripes are perfect for the summer, and it’s also big enough to double as a diaper bag for our trip. My husband decided to make a guest appearance in this blog. He is such a goofball. Check out his amazing hybrid shorts. Even though we had to run in the rain and were all soaked and wet, by the time we got home his shorts we already dry! How awesome is that land/water technology! Perfect for golfing or going to the beach! His and her outfit details are below.
Sometimes it takes a really cute outfit to motivate me to go the gym. I purchased this super cute outfit from the Buckle. The bralette is made by Fox, and I love the mesh neck detail. I love this soft tank from Billabong. It’s a great lightweight tank for the summer and such a steal for less than $25! But the best thing about this outfit is the reversible workout pants. I can actually wear these inside out as a pair of black capris. How cool is that!
