SHOP THE POST:
I just finished another book I couldn’t stop thinking about until I read it through called The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. If you remember, I raved about another one of her novels The Lake House that I read last summer. I’m serious when I say a page turner brings me a crazy levels of joy. If I find more books like that to read this summer, I’ll be golden. I just downloaded The House at Riverton on my kindle and I can’t wait to begin. I promise my full reading list of favorites will be coming your way so stay tuned ;)
How is your week going?
Summer session is in full swing and I had a blast with the kiddos on the playground today. I’ve got four weeks back at school with the littles before ‘official’ summer vacation begins! I’m going to miss them so much next year.
I’ve reached 23 weeks of pregnancy and I have to say I’m surprised by many things along this journey including the fact that I can still wear a lot of my dresses and tops. I thought by now I would strictly be wearing maternity clothes but with few staple maternity items such as a pants and shorts, I can mix and match non-maternity clothing just fine. I know it is different for each person, and I wasn’t sure how it would be for me, but I’m taking each day as it comes :)
One of the things I love wearing most, especially in summer, are dresses. I’ve raved about florals since I brought them out in February (ha!) and I’ve had great luck finding amazing pieces for my closet. This off the shoulder floral print from Red Dress boutique is so fun and flirty and great for a wedding guest or just a fun date night downtown. I’m wearing a size small and it’s plenty loose to hide a bump and I love the little ruffle detail. AND, it’s under $50! Such a deal!
Have any of you shopped with Red Dress before? They have so many cute pieces that are totally affordable. I love this hot pink dress & cold shoulder floral maxi. Everything is reasonably priced and they have a wide variety of clothing from tops, bottoms, swimsuits, dresses, to accessories and shoes. I highly recommend you check them out! Adorable and affordable? Yes please.
My siblings left last night so I have many errands to run and cleaning to do to return to normal life. And tonight I’m just excited for a moment to sit on the couch and do absolutely nothing ;) I’m exhausted!
I hope you’ve had a good start to your week!
