Gingham Goodness

If it seems like gingham goodness is all around you lately, that’s because it is.  From shoes to bags, and tops to dresses, there is a gingham print for everyone.  I have done a quick round up of all of my current faves for you!


First up are these black and white gingham mules that I had in my cart forever and then finally decided that for under $30 they were worth the purchase.  They run a little big in my opinion, so you could size down a 1/2 size in these.

These cute little two strap gingham slides would be perfect with a pair of cutoffs or a simple dress this summer.  They are under $20!  Same brand as the pair I have above, my gut is these will run large too.

If you’re looking for a more long term pair of gingham heels, then Sam Edelman naturally has you covered.  The Hazel pump is a best seller for a reason!  It’s a bit of a splurge, but will last several seasons for sure.

This pink peplum top is perfect!  This would look fantastic with a pair of white denim.

If you’re looking to try this print, but not break the bank then look no further.  This cute little number comes in blue/white and black/white.  Hello cute sleeves too!

Another less expensive, but fun option is this tiered sleeve top.  It’s on sale right now and all sizes remain!

Ok so this isn’t a top, but how cute is this jacket?!  I couldn’t resist including this in my roundup.  The reviews say it runs small in the shoulders, so size up!

Midi length dresses are awesome because they come with variety.  You can keep them looking casual with some flats, or you can dress them up with some wedges or heels.  Both of these are great options for the office too because you can throw a denim jacket or light sweater over it.

You know I am loving the tie waist (i.e. paper bag) trend bottoms that is going on right now (refer to my last post here) . These adorable, higher waist shorts are only $23!  A white tee or tank is all you need to have a complete outfit!

If you want to take the gingham print into the office, why not try these ruffle hem pants?  Reviews say they run large.

This suit combines two of this seasons hottest trends . . . gingham AND embroidery!  The back on this one is a little more high cut so keep that in mind.

Scalloped Shorts

{This post contains affiliate links}

Happy Wednesday friends!  So excited that we are halfway through the week.  We are heading to the home opener for the Cardinals tomorrow so it has me in full on summer mode and glossing over spring completely (since STL probably isn’t going to have one anyways)!  Hence why I’m sharing this adorable pair of scalloped tie waist shorts that I scooped up recently from Nordstrom.

The Fit

These are by BP.  Which if you’re not familiar with that, it is Nordstrom’s own affordable brand that has on trend pieces for the everyday girl on the go.  These shorts are more of a midrise (so not too high on the waist).  They zip in the back and have a super cute tie waist.  These fit true to size for me (wearing an XS).  I tried the S on they fit but I liked how they looked better slightly more fitted.  These are a great length for wearing around on the weekends while attending all of your upcoming summer BBQ’s (and even chasing after those toddlers in some cute flat sandals while sipping your IPA ;)).  These are so easy to pair with a tucked in plain white tee (as I’ve shown here), but you could easily dress this up with a pair of block heels and a lace cami (I’ll link some ideas for you below) and wear it to dinner with friends.

The Color

These are a nice neutral olive green which tends to look great on all skin tones (even my pasty white legs at the moment)!  The white scallop trim is nice because it allows you to easily pair a white tee or tank with it but you could also venture out to other colors as well.

The Price

As if the fit and color weren’t enough, these cuties are under $40!  Say whaaa?!  Anytime I can snag an item that has multiple ways I can style it, then it’s a win.  The fact that I can wear these around on the weekend with my kids, but also dress them up for a date night sold me.

20 things you won’t believe are from Walmart!

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t love going shopping in the actual store but recently I had to do some shopping in store and I’m so glad I did because I came across these top 20 things that you won’t believe are from Walmart!


Walmart has a few new brands.  One of them is called Time and Tru.  It appears there is everything from clothing to jewelry available under this brand.  These gold floral earrings are only $4.  I probably wouldn’t recommend wearing these if you have sensitive ears, but they would be so fun for dressing up a tee shirt and jeans!  These are only available IN STORE so I can’t link them for you.

These little quirky clear pouches were mixed in with the bags and purses.  They kind of have a look to them.  These would be perfect for throwing in your beach bag this summer.  Also can’t find these online, but look in the accessories area if you’re in a Walmart.

So these hard case suitcases are all the rage right now in the blogger world.  This rose gold one is pretty darn cute and the price is pretty darn great.  BONUS – it gets good reviews too!

Ummm, how stinking cute is this seersucker cap?  It was $3 so you can bet this one went home with me.  It will be perfect for the summer! How cute would it be to put a monogram on the front of this?? I’m not finding this one to link for you either, but this was located in the accessories area as well!

So I discovered these adorable rain boots prior to Christmas and snagged a blue pair for Henry.  They came in handy for a wet Easter egg hunt this past weekend. They have so many more colors now!  You can’t beat the price either. These are linked below!

So little jelly sandals for girls were a big thing in the 80’s and 90’s and these totally reminded me of those!  These are by Wonder Nation (Walmart’s cute new brand for kids)!  And you can’t beat the price ($5).

This is the second year now where I have found some super cute swim trunks and these plain swim shirts for my son!  The prints aren’t terrible, and I love the PLAIN swim shirt because it will go with all of his trunks.

My son is growing so fast lately so PJ’s are always needed.  I love these cute little robot print ones!

Another super cool thing I found was this set of plates, cups and utensils.  It sort of reminded me of the stuff IKEA sells.  I can’t find this exact set on their website, but this same brand has the most adorable little graphic melamine plates for your tots!  These would make great Easter basket stuffers!

These natural jute placemats look so much more expensive than they are!

Jumpsuit styling tips

Jumpsuits are a big trend right.  Before you start saying you can’t pull one off, let me share with you why I love jumpsuits and you should too.  There are so many options.  And in case you don’t know exactly what a jumpsuit is, it consists of pants on bottom, and then various types of sleeves up top.  The main reason I love them is because you can style a jumpsuit in so many ways.  It’s like having multiple outfits in one!  And I bet you have most of these pieces in your closet already to work with.

The first, and most obvious way to style a jumpsuit is to wear it exactly as you purchase it!  🙂  Depending on the length of the jumpsuit and your height will determine your shoe choice.  In my case, I’m short, but this particular jumpsuit was on the shorter side and flats pair perfectly with it.

Another great option for styling a jumpsuit is to throw on a denim jacket.  This is the perfect way to turn something into an office appropriate outfit.  For example, if your jumpsuit has spaghetti straps then putting a denim jacket on over it makes it work appropriate.

Lastly, I threw a plain cotton tee on over my jumpsuit and tied it in a cute little knot.  This really gave it a fun laid back casual look.  And it gave me a chance to wear my FAVE tee of all time.  I’m linking it for you below.

Loving Lately

Hi gals!  I’m here with my latest edition of Loving Lately!  So if you know me or have been following for a bit now, you know I love to browse online (basically one of the reasons I started my blog).  My goal is to consistently bring you these loving lately posts because I know we are all always looking for different things at different times.  My hope is that these posts save you the hassle and time of having to look for things on your own.  Let’s get down to business, shall we? 🙂

Road Trip Tee

How cute is this tee from Madewell?  Summertime is all about trips to the lake and traveling to fun places with friends and family.  This tee would be super cute with some denim cutoffs and it’s 15% off through 3/11!

Stripe Wrap Dress

This wrap dress has stripes AND ruffles!  I haven’t tried this one on (hoping to do so soon and report back), but this one looks like it’s long enough that it would be office appropriate with a pair of wedges for a more dressed up look.  Or you can pair it with some flats for a casual look.

Suede Belt

Ladies, this belt is only $28!  I checked it out in person and the quality is great!  I like the thinner profile to this belt.  I think it will be perfect with jeans, cut offs, skirts, or dresses!  It’s a pretty timeless piece.

Floppy Straw Hat

I LOVE hats!  They hide bad hair days, and they protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.  This one is a no brainer.  I like the fact that this one is simple.  It works for everyone and it’s under $30.

Embroidered Dress

I love the color and texture of this one. . . I haven’t felt it in person, but it sort of has that vintage-y look to it.  It also looks way more expensive than it actually is too.  Wear it with some espadrilles or footbed sandals for a perfect spring look!

Bardot Polka Dot One-Piece

This swimsuit sort of reminds me of the dress Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman so I instantly love it.  I also love that it comes with detachable straps too!  This suit is great because it comes in actual cup sizes as well.

Espadrille Sandals

If you buy one pair of sandals this season, let it be the espadrille.  There are SO many options out there, but I have my eyes on these because they only have a 2″ platform which means it will look cute and dressed up with skirts and dresses.  But they will also be perfect with shorts and jeans for a more laid back look!

Denim Skirt

It’s back ladies!  The denim skirt.  I remember having one of these in college, but I haven’t owned one since.  I love the color of this one and the slight frayed hem. The length looks pretty appropriate too.
