Currently Loving .230

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! My girls are officially out of school for summer break and we couldn't be more excited. This year has been quite the rollercoaster! It has felt like the longest and shortest school year of all time. But, I'm super proud of how much my girls have grown this year. They have also taught me the power of being resilient and flexible!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving. Honestly, I have hardly purchased anything recently besides a couple of new dresses. I have just been living in dresses when I'm not at work. They are instant outfits and so comfortable to wear!

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

1. T E E | I am loving this tee! Such a fun tee for spring and summer. I love the neutral colors!

2. E A R R I N G S | Seashells jewelry is my favorite during the summer! I am loving the dainty shell attached to this classic hoop earrings. So cute!

3. T A N K | Sweater tanks are one of my favorite things to wear during the spring and summer. This budget friendly one is only $20 and comes in two colors. I love pairing my sweater tanks with denim shorts and sandals for a put together (but comfy) summer style!

4. S C R U N C H I E | When I first got this srunchie in the mail, I couldn't believe how big it was and I totally didn't think I would use it. Well, I was wrong! I have worn it almost everyday since it arrived. It's perfect for wearing to bed or on a bun. I love it!

5. S U N G L A S S E S | I love my Ray Bans but I have been on the hunt for a cheaper pair of sunglasses to bring on vacation. I spotted this pair on Amazon and they have great reviews. They are also super budget friendly!

6. D R E S S | How gorgeous is this dress?! It's currently on my wish list! I love the polka dots, the pleats, and the pretty color.

7. B A G | This is another wish list item! This adorable bag is perfect for warm weather outfits. The crossbody strap also makes it super versatile!

8. S H O R T S | I've been shopping for longer denim shorts that are work appropriate and I loving this $20 pair that I recently found. They are high waisted with a 7-inch inseam.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! I hope y'all have had a wonderful week! So, I've always loved flowers. They are one of my favorite things but recently I have really gotten into taking care of the flowers at our house myself. We even built a raised flower bed for a zinnia garden! My husband planted a peony bush for me three years ago and first the first time ever, I got blooms! Three beautiful pink peony blooms. They are seriously one of the prettiest flowers I have ever seen!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! We are going to be getting into the 90s here in central North Carolina so it's definitely tank top weather and I am also dreaming of sitting by the ocean or pool at this point. I am absolutely loving these extra warm spring temperatures!

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

1. D R E S S | If you're following along over on Instagram, then you'll know that I am currently really loving dresses! I have collected four new dresses this season and I have my eye on a couple more, including this gorgeous one. I am loving the style and pattern!

2. E A R R I N G S | I love a simple statement earring and these are no exception! How fun is this design?! I need to add them to my jewelry box ASAP.

3. S W I M S U I T | Polka have always been one of my favorite patterns and I really love this cute, polka dotted one piece suit. The ruffle detail is so pretty!

4. B A G | I had been eyeing this bag from Madewell but it's pretty pricey for a bag that I would probably only use during the spring and summer. I found this budget friendly option for way less! I also found this one that's only $20!

5. S A N D A L S | I bought this pair of sandals last month and I am happy to report that I am extremely pleased with my purchase. Why did it take me my whole life to invest in some Birkenstocks?! Now, I own two pairs and they really do just get better and better with each wear.

6. T A N K | I love finding great quality, affordable basics, like this tank. I have it in a couple colors and it's only $8! A must have for summertime. Fits true to size.

7. S H O R T S | I have been loving bike shorts for my workouts and just everyday athleisure. These super affordable leopard print ones were too fun to pass up. I can't wait for them to arrive!

8. H E A D B A N D | I've been growing my collection of headbands for the past few years and I have my oldest daughter hooked on headbands. You'll never catch her out and about without a headband on. Besides being adorable, they are also super functional and I usually wear them when I workout, too. I am loving this straw one plus it's under $10!

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

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! This weekend, we are going to spend it celebrating Olivia! She will be turning nine on Sunday and I just can't believe it. It's so cliché to say but really, it feels like she was just a baby not so long ago. She has plans for just the two of us to go on a breakfast date at our favorite local spot and I can't wait to spend some quality time with my Livi!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of items that I am Currently Loving! This week's picks included lots of fun patterns, sweet details, and great accessories for spring + summer. I already own and love a few of this week's favs!

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

1. B I K E  S H O R T S | I am currently loving bike shorts, especially for my workouts. This pretty floral pair immediately caught my eye! All of my bike shorts are black so this pair would definitely be a colorful and fun new addition. There's also a matching sports bra as well!

2. H E E L S | I've owned a super similar pair of heel for a few years and I always get compliments on them when I wear them. I am loving the style of this pair too! The cognac goes with everything.

3. R I N G | Madewell jewelry is my favorite! I just placed an order for this ring to add to my collection. I love the 80s vibes of this piece!

4. T A N K | The tie straps on this tanks are so cute! I got this tank a few weeks ago and it's already one of my favorite items for this spring and summer. It runs a little small so I would recommend sizing up one size for less fitted look. If you want it fitted, stick with your regular size.

5. S H I R T | White tops are my weakness! My closet is color coordinated and white/cream/ivory is currently my largest section. This gorgeous shirt would fit in perfectly in there!

6. D R E S S | I just can't say no to polka dots! I have always been a big fan of a good polka dot pattern. I am also really loving the style of this little dress. It would be darling with a pair of white sneakers!

7. S U N G L A S S E S | Up until two years ago, I was the queen of losing or breaking my sunglasses. It was a serious problem for me, lol. I bought this pair of sunglasses in May of 2019 and I am so proud to announce that I still own them + they are still in great condition. For me, investing in a great pair of sunglasses was the key to keeping up with them and taking care of them. This colorway is the green + gold but the "green" is definitely more black in person. I love them!

8. S W I M S U I T | I also already own and love this swimsuit. I bought the black version of it last spring and literally ordered the leopard print one while I was at the pool wearing the black one for the first time. It's so incredibly flattering and has good backside coverage. It's so hard to find flattering and good coverage in one suit but this one definitely has it. The price is also great, too! I stick with my regular swimsuit size the best fit. It comes in long sizes as well!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Currently Loving .227

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! Mine has been mostly great with the only one exception. When I was on the highway driving to pickup Julianna from school, a large truck ran off the road causing dirt and rocks to go flying. Two large rocks came right at my car while I was driving 70 mph and severely damaged my windshield. I am feeling grateful that it didn't come through, that it was on the passenger side (with no passengers), and that I was able to get my windshield replaced quickly. Thank goodness for God's protection and insurance!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! Some of these picks I already own and love. The other items are on my wish list! This is such a fun time of year to shop.

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

1. T A N K | I already own and love this workout tank! It's so soft and so incredibly comfortable to wear. I sized up one from my regular lululemon size for the best fit.

2. S L I D E S | These $10 sandals are my go to! I literally throw them on every single morning to take the kids to school, run errands, and I also wear them when I'm doing yard work. Sometimes I even very fashionably wear them with socks, lol. If you're in-between sizes, go down a size.

3. H E A D B A N D | Do I need to add another gorgeous headband to my collection? Definitely not. May I do it anyways? Probably. I love the print one this one! Such pretty colors!

4. B A G | How fun and unique is this budget friendly bag?! I always love anything rattan or straw so this bag caught my eye right away. It's so perfect for spring and summer!

5. S A N D A L S | I love a "barely there" kind of sandal in the warm weather. These beautiful sandals are definitely on my wish list!

6. D R E S S | Hello, new favorite dress! I think this is probably the most perfect floral print that I have ever since. This dress was my Mother's Day gift and I cannot wait to wear it! I's definitely a special item and a splurge but I know it will live in my closet for many, many years to come.

7. B A R R E T T E S | Feeling bored with your hair? Try a new hair accessory! I am loving this collection of dainty barrettes.

8. T O P | I can't get enough white tops! This one definitely gives me vintage vibes and I am loving the little stripes on the sleeves. It would be so cute paired with high waisted denim shorts!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
