Tie Dye Maxi

Tie Dye Maxi

How are we approaching the end of July? Didn’t summer just begin? The kids start TK and 1st grade in 4 weeks and I’m just not ready to let go of summer! The past several weeks we’ve built so many wonderful memories. Luckily, we have one more month to live it up before schedules take over!

Let’s talk about this tie dye maxi dress! It’s been on repeat this summer for many reasons. It’s light and flowy, doesn’t wrinkle, can be rolled for easy travel, and goes with just about any accessories. Bonus- it has pockets! You can grab it here for $23, which is a steal for the quality of this maxi. I’m wearing the small and it has room so I recommend sizing down a size. Trending Now –> knots at the bottom of maxi dresses. Scroll to the bottom and see how cute and easy it is to add a knot to your dress! Perfect for those beach days when you don’t want to drag the bottom of your dress.

Mother’s Day 2017

Mother’s Day 2017

It’s been another magical year of motherhood! I rounded up a few candid pics (above) from the past year! Our fur baby, Louis, has brought so much love to our family. Audrey has become an avid reader and continues to write/illustrate her own novels. Her imagination and creativity continues to amaze us! She hopes to be an author or singer one day! She’s busy with basketball, soccer, tennis, Girl Scouts, and soon piano! Jack has found his love of golf as he enters his first golf academy! His teacher’s seem to think he is extremely bright, and I’ve found I have a little heartbreaker on my hands. He is my old soul, extremely gentle and kind-hearted. Art, soccer, and music are a few of his favorite things, but mostly he still likes cuddling with mommy! I’ll take it as long as I can! Motherhood is a journey. It’s not always easy, but it’s an amazing gift. I’m so blessed to be their mama and I’m so grateful to have learned from the best! Which leads me to my own mother…

For the past two years I’ve written/drafted a post or I guess more of a tribute to my own mother.  I have a collection of stories and moments that I reflect on, this part is easy for me. It’s more the emotion behind it all that gets me. Nothing I have written thus far is good enough, sigh. I know she would love anything I say about her, and she’d tell me it’s the best thing she has ever read. That being said, my words of how truly special she is to me, and to so many people in her life seem to still not do her justice. So, until my words/tribute are perfect I’ll simply say Thank You, Mom! You have been the best example of EVERYTHING in my life. I love you to the moon and back!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing mamas! I hope that you were spoiled silly today! Know that your job as a mom is truly the most important role you will every have and that it goes way too fast!!! Cherish these moments!

We had such a lovely vacation with the kids in Kauai! I’m still sorting through all my pics so stay tuned for a Travel Diary (last one here) coming to a glaMoMorous life soon. We ate some fabulous local island cuisine that I can’t wait to share about! Today’s post is all about this lovely green dress! I just adore the colors of this airy dress with the varying hues of green! Turquoise has long been a favorite color of mine but I find myself loving these greens! Maybe it’s all those palm tree prints that are sweeping summer fashion. Anyhow this dress is such a steal at $24. It’s top rated and I love that it’s the perfect shape for all body types! I’m wearing a size small (my usually size) and it has plenty of room. I’d say if you usually wear a size medium you could probably get away with a small. Shop it here, it’s definitely one of my new favorite dresses for summer!

The tassel trend is still one of my favorites, especially in the summertime, but I’m also loving ruffles these days. How cute are the sleeves on this dress and the ruffle hemline?! The fit is lose and comfy which y’all know I love, and the stripes give a nod to nautical which I also adore. Grab this dress for  only $19 here! In other news, I turned another year older! In recent years birthday’s seem to have brought more meaning than presents and cake. I find myself reflecting on what I’ve done and what I hope to accomplish in the future. I remember my mom always telling me that her mid 30’s and 40’s were some of her favorite years. While I haven’t reached my 40’s I am really loving my mid 30’s. Getting older isn’t just about those laugh lines creeping up. With age you gain a stronger confidence in yourself. You value real relationships that only make your life better. I’ve discovered my goal in life is really to be the best version of myself. The best mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend as possible. So CHEERS to getting older!

My wardrobe during winter was grey, black, camo, and touches of blush on repeat! More recently I’m adoring all the floral prints that are making a big splash with major retailers and small boutiques. It’s such a girly trend but you can also find tropical prints such as a palm print that doesn’t feel as girly. My dress is from one of my favorite online retailers,  Jane.com and I highly recommend shopping/checking out the site. It’s a favorite of mine for finding trendy clothing, house hold items, kid gear, gifts, and more at a discount price. This blue cold shoulder floral dress was from Jane.com for only $34.99! I recently had a girls night out so I threw it on with some booties and tassel earrings to dress it up a bit! The floral trend is so easy to take from day to night making it super versatile! My dress was sold out but I linked a bunch of my favorite floral finds at the bottom of this post! I’m obsessed with the floral wrap dress linked and the Ted Baker clutch is so beautiful! Hope everyone had a lovely Easter! xx
