The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is a great time to stock up on key summer staples for your closet with many items discounted at up to 40% off!  I have scoured their site and here are my top picks!  I included stuff for your littles too!

Target has 20% off all dresses this Memorial Day Weekend!  Use code DRESS20.  So many of my dresses this spring have been from Target.  They have so many options!  I’m linking all of the dresses I have and others that have caught my eye!  They also have 40% off Shoes with code SAVE40!

5 white dresses you need in your closet this summer

Happy Monday friends!  I thought I’d kick off the week with a round up of five white dresses you need in your closet this summer as we near Memorial Day Weekend!  I popped into Nordstrom Rack recently to shop for a birthday present for my husband and walked out with something for him AND this adorable Spirit of Grace off white dress midi dress for myself and I just had to share it with you!  I’m struggling to find it online though, but I will continue to keep my eye out for it for you.  In the mean time, I’ve got you covered with a round up for five other fabulous white dresses for your closet this summer!

I love a good white dress because they are usually still very casual looking, but you can accessorize them in so many ways.  A white dress never goes out of style either.  It’s such a classic, timeless style that you know you will wear over and over again each summer.

I wore this particular dress to a local event with fellow bloggers, The Babbling Blondes yesterday.  The event featured tons of local vendors and boutiques and all ticket proceeds benefitted the Women’s Safe House here in Saint Louis, MO.

Sunday Style | A Round Up of the Best Pajamas Under $50

Are you still rockin the sorority and frat t-shirts you got in college to bed each night?  Just me?  Well I’m on a mission lately to change this.  I have slowly started to build my pajama set collection and trade in these dingy tees for something cuter.  It seems like this is a trend all around lately given the number of amazingly cute options that I found out there.  So grab your morning cup of coffee and settle in (for 3 min or so) and snag yourself a cute pair of PJ’s.  Your husband or significant other will thank you!

Short Sets

Given the time of year, I love sleeping in matching short pajama sets.  There are so many cute prints right now, so there is literally something for everyone.  As I’m sure you’ve seen, fruits are on everything . . . particularly lemons.  And who can deny them, they are darling!  So let’s kick off this round up with a few fruity prints!

If you’re worried about the white lemon print pajama set above being too see through, check out this navy set!  I own pajamas that are this brand and they are SO comfortable and hold up well.

If lemons aren’t your fruit of choice, check out this watermelon print!  I love the black and white stripes with the pop of pink!  And you can’t beat the price on these either.

I told you I wasn’t kidding when I said I found several fruit print sets!  The colors on this set are so summery and perfect.

Did you know that Sam Edelman carries more than just shoes?! These bird print pajamas are darling and oh so comfy too!

Bird Print Satin Pajamas // $37

I have had my eye on these for months, not sure why I haven’t just purchased them because they are darling.  They do keep going in and out of stock, but they have continued to bring back because they are so popular.  They come in a pretty pink stripe as well!

I shared this set on my Instagram feed last week, you really can’t go wrong with stripes and florals!

Ugg Slippers

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving these pops of green and pink in this cute cactus print set!  And the price is right too!

Cactus Print PJ Set // $42

This set is something I purchased from the Gap and wore in the hospital after having my son.  They are the absolute softest and sadly I cannot find them on their site any longer.  I am linking a pair from Target that is SO similar though.

Pant Sets

Pajama pants used to be something I owned a TON of, but then in the last few years I have purged some things and gotten rid of a lot of older pairs.  PJ pants are always so easy to throw on with a tee or tank after work, and I’ve rounded up a few of my faves from across the web!

You can never go wrong with blue and white.  These colors look great on everyone and they are a timeless pattern!

You didn’t think I was done sharing fruit prints with you did you?  Old Navy always has us covered in the PJ pant department!

This black and white set is similar to the short version above (different brand), but great price and includes long sleeves and pants.  My daughter was born in the winter months so when I had her, I actually wore basically this set in a different brand.  It would be great for an expecting mom!

H&M black and white set // $35

Sleep Shirts

Sleep shirts are another great option for feeling cute and staying cool in the warmer months.  I always find really cute ones at TJ Maxx and they are usually less than $20!

Another blue and white stripe (because, hello, timeless).  This one is under $30 and comes in a pink stripe too!

And last but not least, I give you this embroidered number.  We love the embroidered trend on shirts and denim lately, why not add it to your pajama collection too!  This one is under $20!

Topshop Striped Midi Dress

So it seems as though Saint Louis has skipped right over spring and into summer.  And with temps in the 90’s already, this Topshop Striped Midi Dress is perfect!  It’s super lightweight and breathable.  This midi dress hits me right below the knee which is absolutely perfect. I am wearing a size 2 (petite) for reference.  This dress also comes in a tall version as well which is cut specifically for girls over 5’7″.

The stripes are red, pale blue and white which are great for all summer!  This dress is perfect for any Memorial Day or Fourth of July BBQs that you have coming up. The top stripes are horizontal and the bottom stripes are vertical which I love because they make me appear taller – WINNING!  The buttons don’t actually work, they are decorative only.  I have a strapless bra on with it, but you could very easily make this dress office appropriate by throwing on a denim jacket and a pair of espadrilles.  Another way to style this dress would be to layer it over a fitted white shirt (I’m going to link one at the end of this post for you).

I promise you will wear this dress all summer long.  It is $50 and FREE SHIPPING / FREE RETURNS!  So you can buy it and try it without any risk of not being able to get your money back if it doesn’t work out for you.  I had not ordered from Topshop.com before, but it was a great experience.   It took 6 days to receive my order, but I was kept up to date with when it would be arriving through a series of emails.

A Healthy Breakfast for Toddlers

This post is sponsored by Happy Family, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Let’s face it, we are ALL busy!  As a working mom, I am always on the look out for a healthy and fast breakfast that I can serve my kids before heading out the door to start our day.  I recently discovered the Happy Family brand at Walmart, specifically the Happy Tot Super Morning Bowls.  Bonus, many Walmart Stores now offer curbside pick up so you can shop online and then schedule a time for pick up!

What makes Happy Tot Super Morning Bowls a healthy breakfast?

Happy Tot Super Morning Bowls are the perfect healthy on the go breakfast for toddlers.  These oatmeal bowls come ready-to-eat and are filled with gluten-free oats, sprouted quinoa, and chia for Omega-3s.  My favorite part of this healthy breakfast is the fact that there are 0g of added sugar!

walmart happy tot super morning bowls

Happy Tot Super Morning Bowls contain organic fruits for a natural sweetness. You can serve these straight out of the bowl or gently warmed (approx. 20 seconds or so).

How many flavors do the Super Morning Bowls come in?

These bowls come in two flavors:  apples and blueberries and bananas and strawberries. We tried both, but so far the apple and blueberry version has been a big hit in our house!

Does Happy Family offer other breakfast options?

Yes!  There are so many other healthy and nutritious options for your babies, toddlers and preschoolers!  Whole Milk Yogurt, Soft Baked Oat Bars, and Chickpea Straws are some of our faves as well.  I love these snacks because they are packable in my purse when we are on the go!  Super Morning Bowls can be eaten on the go too because they can be eaten right out of the bowl!
