Summer White

SHARE THIS

I’m doing a little something different today. You clearly know I’m a shopaholic, although I dedicate most of my posts to our everyday life and Blaire. BUT since I’m giving away a $500 Nordstrom giftcard at the bottom of this post, I just had to take the time to do a style post. I’m love, love, loving the flowy, boho look lately! My favorite thing about flowy pieces is they’re just so comfortable, without looking sloppy.  When I saw my bestie wearing the cutest crochet/lacy/flowy white tank last week on her IG last week, I had to have it. Good thing she’s the best, because she brought me one of my own last weekend all the way over here to Iowa. ;)

Lucky for me, Jason and I usually have some reason to get a sitter a few times each month. Whether it’s for a party we’re going to, or just for a good ‘ol fashioned dinner and a movie date night. These nights are my opportunity to wear the things that aren’t safe around Blaire. (Think dangly earrings, long necklaces, and heels!) So I always like to go all out when we get out of the house for something special. I HAD to wear this tank, obviously. It’s so lightweight and will be perfect for layering in to fall.

I swear my braid was supposed to be a fishtail… but I’m still proud of it, so I had to show it off. What do you think? Are you loving the boho trend as much as I am? What’s your go to look for your mama’s night out? Let me know in the comments below! xo

Now… on to the fun stuff.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
