styled x3: what to wear for Memorial Day weekend!

I am SO ready for a long weekend... we have no sports and no set plans and I am looking forward to enjoying the gorgeous weather and getting outside all weekend. I pulled together three fun looks for the weekend no matter what your plans include... from picnics to bbqs, shopping with friends, brunch or a day at the park. Happy (almost) long weekend!

what to pack: weekend at the lake!

This past weekend I asked on Instagram Stories for packing list requests for summer travel. WOW! You all are going to some FABULOUS locations this summer and I will be working on lots of packing lists for lots of fun destinations throughout May and June... I can't wait to share more.

Today's packing list was for a popular destination... from Lake Travis to Up North Michigan to lakeside in Wisconsin. There were lots of requests for a lake life weekend. Especially with Memorial Day Weekend coming up lots of families will be heading to cottages and cabins for the long weekend. Today I pulled together the ultimate lakeside weekend packing list. Simple shorts and tops that mix and match well alongside some sweats for evening bonfires or chilly morning coffees on the deck.

styled x3: white blouse!

I just love a simple white blouse for spring and summer... they can easily be dressed up or down and are perfectly lightweight for warm weather. Today I pulled together three really easy looks for spring and summer with a simple white blouse. From running errands to date night to zoom calls - this blouse can do it all. Let's take a look at the three outfits...

(above) This look is perfect for errands, sports sidelines or casual weekend activities. I love this blouse with denim shorts and casual Birkenstocks for summer. 

(above) If you are heading out for a girls night or date night I would pair this blouse with denim and wedges. This straw bag is a cute addition!

(above) To dress up the look for summer try pairing this white blouse with dressy shorts. This is great look for brunch, casual grad parties or a day of shopping with friends.

dress round up!

It's DRESS season... finally! From casual dresses for everyday wear and more structured dresses for the office to the perfect easy dress to throw on for a date night... I've got a little bit of everything for all the dress lovers out there. I have to say I never used to get into wearing dresses, but over the past few years I've really come to love them. They are incredibly convenient to throw on and go and always looks pulled together. Plus, often they are the coolest thing to wear on super hot days. I am LOVING all these dresses I pulled together today... I hope you find some inspiration here too!

the home edit organization on a budget with Walmart!

This post is sponsored by Walmart and ShopStyle Collective. All opinions are my own.

Thank you for supporting the brands that support this blog.

I've got the spring cleaning bug big time right now! I've been on a kick of cleaning out closets and drawers and purging and organizing my heart out. There is for sure a correlation to longer and brighter days with my desire to get our house seriously in check. I've gone through almost every space in our house and the laundry closet was one of the areas that needed some serious organization.

This small but mighty closet holds not only our washer and dryer but lots of back stock items like toilet paper, paper towel, cleaning supplies and of course all of our laundry supplies. This closet gets a lot of use and we are always in and out of it grabbing things. It *was* very organized at one point and it's fallen into chaos over the past year or so. It was really time to get some fresh bins in there and clean it out for good. 

I LOVED using The Home Edit for Walmart clear organization solutions for this closet. I love that you can see right into the clear bins to see what you have or what you might need to stock up on. And when the kids are digging in here for the stain treatment or dusting products they are so EASY to see and just grab. 

For this project I used two of The Home Edit 5-piece laundry sets which are under $25 each which is such a good price. I used the larger bins for paper products, large laundry bottles and dusting/cleaning supplies. Then I used the smaller bins for dryer sheets, laundry soap, and other fabric treatments. The clear turntables were perfect for holding extra candles (they spin so you can see your entire candle back stock) and some glass bottles for essential oils which makes them so easy to get access. I also supplemented with some additional large bins. My favorite product from the set were these slim bins, they are the perfect size with no space wasted at all. I love that everything from The Home Edit collection works together so easily and looks perfectly uniform. It contains the chaos in style while really making it functional for both the space and our whole family. 

I completely emptied the shelves in the laundry closet to start completely from scratch. Let's take a look at how I pulled it all together and then you can see the 'before' photo at the very end... it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either (wink, wink!). In the end The Home Edit collection made this closet a dream to open and enjoy. Even my husband said "Wow! Big improvement!"

You can take advantage of FREE 2-day shipping with orders over $35 at Walmart or you can order online and pick up in store in just a few hours so you don't have to wait around when the organizing bug strikes!

spring & early summer capsule 2022!

My spring capsule is only a few weeks late... wink, wink! But it's finally here! I've been so uninspired for spring with the terrible weather we are having but the weather is finally on the up and up and I'm feeling much more inspired for spring dressing. I just LOVE this round up of looks for spring... simple and classic pieces that mix and match easily with small pops of color and plenty of classics! What more could you ask for? I hope you love these gorgeous pieces and all the outfits just as much as I do!

styled x3: sweater tank

I love finding super versatile pieces for my closet that I know I will wear multiple ways for several seasons... this sweater tank is one of those! It works now with jeans or skirts and later this summer with skirts and shorts. And you could even wear it this fall with a blazer or lightweight jacket. 

Today I pulled together 3 looks for inspiration on how to style it through the warmer months... I hope you love these looks!

(above) For warm spring or summer days with denim shorts and Birkenstocks this tank is perfect for everyday mom on the go or a busy weekend look.

(above) I love a white on white look for warmer days and this sweater tank works great with jeans for spring.

(above) To dress it up a bit try pairing this maxi skirt with the sweater tank, perfect for casual parties, date night, or just everyday!

loving lately, April

News flash! It's almost MAY... like what!?!? This month has been so fast and furious, I hardly know where it's gone. Today I'm rounding up some of my favorite purchases from April in a new-ish series that's called Loving Lately. You can see past round ups here. This month was all about shopping for spring and summer staples - even though the weather is just NOT cooperating. To say my closet is ready for warmer weather is quite the understatement... let's take a look at my favorites this month. 

white gauzey short sleeve top, this top is so soft and lightweight it's the perfect piece for warm sunny days, I'm going to be wearing this A LOT once the weather warms. True to size.

olive flutter sleeve gauze top, I'm obsessed with this fabric and the flutter sleeves are just gorgeous. Plus, this is super budget friendly! True to size.

pale green tank, easy tanks like this are a staple I my spring and summer wardrobe. This one works great under jackets or on it's own and this pale green color is SO pretty. True to size.

distressed hem jeans, obsessed. That's all. I just adore these jeans. They are super flattering and the distressed hem is a fun touch. They don't have stretch but form to your body as you wear them. I went up a size.

beaded necklace, beaded necklaces are my summer obsession. They are fun on their own or layered with other necklaces and they add a fun pop of color to any look. 

brown sandals, simple and classic. I love this pair! True to size.

black flutter sleeve dress, the perfect everyday dress at a crazy low price. I will wear this tons this summer. This runs big, I went down a size.

white/gold golden goose sneakers, I splurged on a new pair of Golden's and I'm in love. I went for a super simple white pair with light gold accents. It's my first plain white pair and they are perfect for warmer months with shorts, jeans or casual dresses. (I can't find my exact pair online, this pair is very similar)

enbliss bra, this came under amazing recommendations from many of you as a super comfortable bra with light padding that ALSO has a deep v-neck for spring. I LOVE this bra!
