Hi friends! Hope you are enjoying a nice week. It’s a busy week here. Lydia Grace got her helmet yesterday which thankfully went very smoothly. The first 3 days require you to do skin checks and all went well except for one little spot that needs to be adjusted. So we are headed back today to get that done and hopefully she will be good to go. Truthfully, I’m hoping this process is a quick one. They told us she will need to wear it for 3-4 months but I’m hoping 8-10 weeks will do the trick. If you responded to my question box in stories over the weekend with your experience, thank you! They were all so reassuring as everyone had a positive experience and one they are so happy they did for their babies.
Let’s chat fashion because that’s more fun anyway, right?! There are 2 trends that I am loving for summer – the silk scarf and rattan belt! I shared in Friday’s blog post a little bit about how this JCrew silk scarf caught my eye immediately when I was scrolling. I have never been one that wanted to try wearing a silk scarf maybe because I didn’t like the idea of something tied – I love classic outfits but that may have been a little too preppy for me. When I saw that scarf simply draped over her shoulders, I wanted to try it and also look for more affordable options. Of course, I headed to Amazon as I knew there would be something there. I came across one with very similar colors and patterns and I really hit the jackpot with it! It’s super soft, the colors are so pretty for spring and it will go with blues, pinks and whites which all make up colors I wear a ton. I think wearing this with a classic dress really dresses this up and adds a pretty detail with a pop of color. I also added my favorite rattan headband and clear strappy shoes that I have been loving!
This dress was such a pleasant surprise! The color is a muted pink so it’s not your stand out bright pink. The material is so soft and I absolutely adore the elbow length sleeves with a little bit of puff. I thought this dress was going to be your basic midi dress but when I put it on, it stood out on it’s own. Wear this as a work option, to church and for Easter! It’s part of the new Amazon Aware brand that I’m loving. I ordered the sheets and towels to try out as well! I can’t wait to try them out!
Let’s chat about the 2nd trend for summer – this rattan belt. Belts are back and I’m here for it. I used to wear belts with everything! They accentuate your waistline add something to an otherwise plain outfit. Keep it simple though and don’t overdo it with accessories. I came across this rattan belt I shared in the latest Sunday finds! Thankfully it has a little loop that the excess belt fits into so it won’t be flopping everywhere. Add this belt to dresses, skirts and shorts this summer!Outfit details: dress | rattan belt | bangle bracelets | straw handbag | square toe heel
What do you think of these trends? Would you wear them?
Have a wonderful day!
