Summer Accessories Essentials (Great for Mother’s Day Gifts!)

Hey, guys! When summer rolls around, I always like to snag a few new summer accessories. I could always use a new kimono, a fresh pair of sunglasses, and a comfy pair of sandals! Here are 12 cute and trendy summer accessories that I love, and they would even make great Mother’s Day gifts!

one: I have this thing with pink. And sparkles. And I always reach for baseball caps in the spring and summer to shield my eyes and skin from the sun! How cute and sporty is this pink adidas cap adorned with Swarovski crystals?! It’s perfect for running errands, walking the shoreline, and everything in between. read more

Flattering and Affordable One-Piece Swimsuit that is Mom-Friendly

You guys. I am obsessed with this one-piece swimsuit that you all voted for me to buy! Not only do I think it is cute, with its balanced mix of florals and stripes, but I think it fits so well! I’m going to tell you why I highly recommend this flattering and affordable one-piece and why it is suitable for everyone- even moms running around after their kids!

What I love about this one-piece swimsuit:

  • adjustable straps that help get your bust looking and feeling just right
  • padded (but not overly padded) cups
  • ample rear-coverage (My daughters won’t have to tell me, “Your cheeks are hanging out” the entire day. Ha! They are too funny.)
  • simple yet flattering design- no weird openings or straps

What I don’t love about this one-piece swimsuit:

  • nothing!!!

However, it is important to note:

I read the size guide, and I was kind of in-between sizes, so I originally went for the medium. But as you can see in the photo below, it was too large. It swallowed my chest and simply did nothing for me. Plus, when I bent over, I couldn’t be sure there wouldn’t be a wardrobe malfunction. And ain’t nobody got time for that!! read more

One-Piece Swimsuits from Amazon I’m Crushing On

I’m in major summer mode here. Winter be gone! Who else is over it?! I’ve been taking my girls swimming at the indoor pool, and I always wear the same swimsuit. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it and receive compliments every single time I wear it, but I need to increase the size of my swimsuit wardrobe. What better way is there to do that than to purchase cute and inexpensive swimsuits?!

I find one-piece swimsuits the most functional style for #momlife right now, although I’m definitely not opposed to two-pieces! And since I shop on Amazon so frequently for gifts, home items, clothes, and pretty much anything else ever made, I started shopping on Amazon for one-piece swimsuits! I bought this one last year (It’s under $11!!) and still love it, but like I said, I’m looking for more. read more

Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 3)- A Day Early!

For today’s Thrifty Thursday, I’ve rounded up some of my fave outfits that are on major markdown!  If only I could wait until everything is on sale before I buy…  It’s okay, though.  I have been getting some major wear out of these pieces!  And now you can, too, for super affordable prices!  (I decided to publish this post a little early because the stock of some of these items is dwindling.)

$22 Maxi Dress

I have been loving the black and white color combo lately!  It’s always in style!  So you cannot go wrong with this $22 ruffle maxi dress (It runs TTS, but I think, there is limited selection left!).  I’m going to have this one in my summer wardrobe for a very long time.

Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 3) striped maxi dress
