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.

Halloween DIY Pumpkins & Easy Brunch Wear

Donuts are such a hit in our family that they’ve been served at birthday parties instead of cupcakes! On any given Sunday, Daddy will make a run to our favorite donut shop, Christie’s, and bring back an assortment for the family. Chocolate with rainbow sprinkles is of course the kids favorite, Mike loves a chocolate bar, and I can’t wait to gobble up a maple or glazed milk donut! Are y’all wanting a donut now because I am. Haha!

Every year we do all sorts of DIY pumpkin projects. One of my favorite ways to decorate a pumpkin is with paint! It’s so easy and fun. Since Halloween is on a Monday, I decided to host a Halloween themed brunch on Sunday. So when I started thinking about how I wanted to paint my pumpkin(s) this year, I decided on a centerpiece of mini pumpkin donuts! Pretty sure I’ll need to have real ones too, but I think they will make the perfect addition to the table. These are so easy!

supplies

You need:

  • 5 mini white pumpkins
  • Pink, brown, and/or white acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Markers

painting

Make sure you clean and dry the pumpkins. Next paint each pumpkin with your chosen color of paint. I went with all pink because I wanted a cohesive look, but mixing up the colors would be cute too. Let them dry. Next, draw on the sprinkles using the markers. I let my kids help with the sprinkles, but if you want to make these look more professional, then handle the sprinkles on your own.

What to wear for a holiday themed brunch? If you don’t love to dress up, or you need something asap, then I’ve got a quick fix for you. I adore this playful shirt and it’s so on trend! Fashion is having a moment with fun printed t-shirts. Paired with a leather skirt or leather pants it’s the perfect outfit for any holiday brunch. You are a bit dressed up without trying too hard! A bit cheeky and a bit sassy. Throw on some cat ears or a headpiece of choice to make it Halloweenish. For an everyday look there are so many ways to mix up a printed tee. Another favorite would be with distressed jeans, a leather jacket, and a colored heel. So fun! My shirt is only $16, so grab it now.
