Currently Loving

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! My kids had Vacation Bible School at our church this week so my husband and I were able to squeeze in two weeknight dates this week. It was so much fun to catch up and spend some time together during the week! Monday nights make great date nights! My girls also had a great time at VBS so it was a win-win.

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. A couple of the items I already own and love (plus they are included in my Puerto Rico packing list that I shared here on the blog yesterday). I found lots of great, budget friendly items this week!


Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. B E L T  B A G | This is such a cute, affordable option for a belt bag! For less than $20, you can gave a belt bag a try. I love mine so much!


2. T E E | This tee is so fun! I love pink and champagne so I'm definitely adding it my wish list.


3. S A N D A L S | I already own and love these sandals. I wear them several times a week and they comfortably dress up any look! Fit is true to size.

4. N E C K L A C E | I am currently loving shell jewelry and this five dollar necklace is a great way to try out the trend. Yay for style on a budget!


5. T O P | I love the print and the style of this adorable top. It would be super cute styled with a pair of high rise denim shorts!


6. S K I R T | I ordered this skirt earlier in the week and I can't wait for it to arrive! I had my eye on a much more expensive option so I was really excited to find this one. I'm planning to style it with a graphic tee and sneakers!


7. S H O R T S | These shorts are one of my favorite items in my closet! I love the dots, the color, and the fit is fantastic. They run true to size.

Puerto Rico Packing List

puerto rico packing list, puerto rico, north carolina blogger, style on a budget, travel blogger

Happy Thursday! It's officially one week until we are Puerto Rico bound! We are actually road tripping to Atlanta, Georgia first to stay the night and fly out of the airport there. We have several airports close to us in North Carolina but flights for four people was significantly less expensive directly out of Atlanta. I am all about getting a better deal! This will be my girls very first time flying and they are so excited for their first flight. We can't wait!

Today, I'm sharing some of the items that I am packing for our trip! We will be staying with Josh's grandmother at her home so I won't have any resort recommendations for this trip. We are so excited for an authentic Puerto Rican experience and can't wait to go on so many new adventures! On the agenda is visiting beaches, going to the rainforest, snorkeling, and maybe even zip lining.

Now, on to the packing list. This list might be more for me than anyone else but it's helpful for me to organize what I'm taking with me plus I always love to see what others are packing for their trips!

Instagram Roundup

Hey y'all! Today is our first official day of summer break and we are unfortunately kicking it off with a trip to the dentist for a filling. This is the first cavity either one of my kids have ever had so I am dreading it! I don't like going to the dentist at all myself and my kids usually like the dentist but I have a feeling Olivia is going to lose her love of the dentist (at least a little bit) today! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of outfits and inspiration from Instagram. I currently can't stop wearing skirts. I am loving them for spring and summer!

Got my kids to school, went to the post office, and got my car inspected all before 9am this day. I felt so accomplished! This black tank and my fav jeans made getting ready simple that morning. The tank is super budget friendly, true to size, and so flattering. Adding the gray one to my cart too!

I'm nosey and I like seeing other people’s Target hauls so here’s mine: polka dot dress, body wash that smells like a watermelon jolly rancher, bud vase, comfy bralette, Crest white strips because I love coffee, and new mascara!

Some days I really love my outfit and this was one of those days. This budget friendly skirt is finally available online and it’s the perfect leopard print for summer! The fit is true to size for wearing on your natural waist but size up if you like wearing your skirts lower on your hips.

Now that I finally gave in to getting a belt bag (aka chic fanny pack), I wish I would have gotten one sooner! They are the perfect solution to a dress or skirts without pockets. This one perfectly holds my iPhone, keys, lipgloss, and a small card wallet!

Treat Yo Self

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today is the last day of school! This school year has been filled with fun, growth, learning, challenges, and new experiences. Y’all, having a third grader isn’t for the faint of heart! I thought for sure my experience as a third grade teacher would prepare me for the challenge but nope. Lol. Third grade drama is exhausting! It gets better right, mommas?! Our first grader thankfully had much less drama and grew so much academically. We are thankful for a great first year at a new school! Julianna changes her career path on a weekly basis but right now she wants to be a yoga instructor and Olivia still dreams of being a baby doctor. Now, let’s have the best summer ever! We are trying to squeeze in as much fun as possible because school will be back in session before we know it.

Today, I'm sharing another fun wall mural in Greensboro. This one is located at the BohoBlu headquarters and it's too cute! You can find it at 3718 Old Battleground Rd, Greensboro, NC. This adorable piece of art was painted by the super talented Gina Elizabeth Franco! Hurry and get your picture taken in front of this one because a new mural in coming soon in it's place. 

I wore a few of my favorite closet basics on Saturday for a busy day of running errands and hanging out with my family. You just can't go wrong with a little black dress and leopard sandals! I added my new belt bag (which is so perfect when your dress or skirt doesn't have pockets) to complete the look. When you don't know what to wear, the answer is always little black dress!

Currently Loving

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week! Yesterday, I wrapped up my seventh school year at my current job which completes my eleventh year in education. I can't believe it's been 15 years since I graduated from high school! Time seriously flies. 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. I already own and love a few of these items this week! 


Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. T O T E | Yes, another straw bag because if you don't already have one, you need one! It's the perfect neutral bag for spring and summertime.


2. S U N G L A S S E S | I finally splurged on a good pair of sunglasses and I am loving them so far. Sunglasses are an essential part of my everyday wardrobe so I treated myself!


3. L E O P A R D  S K I R T | I got this skirt in store a few weeks ago so I was super excited to see that it's finally in stock online. It's true to size if you wear it on your natural waist but if you like your skirts to sit a little lower on your hips then size up one size. Such a fun skirt!


4. D E N I M  S K I R T | I own this skirt in a different wash and it's one of my favorite items in my closet. It's definitely a wardrobe staple for me! The fit is true to size.


5. T E E | I am currently loving graphic tees, especially this fun floral one! I love that it comes in a pink option but it's also available in cream too.


6. D R E S S | I can never say no to polka dots! I love this gorgeous and budget friendly dress.


7. B E L T  B A G | For a couple of months, I have been wanting to try a belt bag so I finally went for it while they have been on sale. I wish I would have bought it sooner! It's so great for wearing with skirts and dresses that don't have any pockets. I'm able to fit my iPhone, keys, card wallet, and lip gloss inside of it!


8. S A N D A L S | I wore these all last weekend at the beach and they are comfortable. The perfect pool and beach sandals! I'm a true 8.5 and the 8 was the best fit for me. Plus, they are under $13!


Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!
