Let go of the toxic relationship you have with those too small jeans you keep in your closet. They represent the idea that your body at this size isn’t desirable or worthy. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. ✌🏻
^ those are the words I told myself about the pair of overall shorts I had being holding onto in the hopes that “someday” they’d fit again. Truthfully all they did was serve as a daily gut punch that made me feel like my current body wasn’t good enough.
This summer they hit the donate pile SO fast, and this new pair replaced them. That tiny shift felt like the biggest weight lifted off, even if it wasn’t those extra pounds.
Do you have any “when I’m skinny again” reminders in your closet? It’s time to let ‘em go! ✌🏻
I have got my mind on summer, and summer on my mind. 🏖 Anyone else?!?
We’ve been starting to plan a summer trip, which made me immediately want to start shopping. 😉 Just a few years ago I would dread buying or WEARING a swimsuit. Nothing about it was enjoyable to me. Fast forward to now, and 28 year old me has embraced my body just the way it is and I want ALL the suits! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Below are some of my favorite swim finds! Lots of affordable options because if you’re like me, you can’t have just one!
Keep scrolling for kiddo options!
You didn’t think I would forget the little ones did you?!
Kids swimsuits are actually one of my most favorite things to buy. Each of my littles has multiple, and they all get plenty of use in the summertime! Below are some of my favorites this season, including some that are perfect for sibling matching for SwimZip! There sun protection is next to none.
Phew. These past few months just FLEW for us. You may have noticed that September’s outfit summary was never a thing. 🤦🏼♀️ I meant to put it out a little late, then next thing I knew it was October 20th and I decided to just roll it over into the next month.
So here is the September AND October outfit summaries!

I don’t know about you guys, but fall is my absolute favorite time to put outfits together! Give me all the layers!
So here are 5 items that I consider fall staples in my closet. Whether you pair them all together, or only wear one, the outfit possibilities are endless! 🍂
1. A good cozy cardigan
Truthfully this is a year round must for me! I love the finished look they give, while still being comfortable! I do tend to gravitate towards my neutral/earth toned cardis because they go with EVERYTHING. Here are some current favorites. ⇣
2. A flannel. Or 8. 😉
Fall is flannel season! 🙌🏻 I love how they continue to stay in style year after year, and they are SO good for layering! My go-to is finishing off my outfit with a flannel tied around my waist. It looks cute, and provides an extra layer if that fall breeze picks up. 😉
3. Graphic T’s!
Give me ALL the graphic T’s. It’s no secret that I love a good casual look, and graphic tees give outfits such a fun spin! Pair them with a pair of distressed jeans, some cute booties, and your good to go! Or add some texture with a flannel/cardigan/both! See- outfit options are endless. 😉
4. Mom Jeans!
Okay okay. I know these aren’t everyone’s jam. Here me out.
These hug in the right places, while giving a little extra room elsewhere. As much as I love my Jeggings, I also dig the slightly baggy look Mom Jeans offer. Paired with all the above and some cute booties, they’re AMAZING for fall.
5. Cognac Accessories.
This one is actually multiple items, but you catch my drift. 😉 We all know accessories can make an entire outfit! Think hat, boots/booties, bag, etc. That cognac color is PERFECT for fall, but also transitional for other seasons! 🙌🏻 Examples are below!
I hope this was helpful, and gave you some good affordable options, if you’re looking.
