What I Love: Jean Jackets

Posted on

I remember watching “The Wedding Singer” and being completely enamored with Drew Barrymore’s jean jacket and became determined to add one to my wardrobe. And thus began my love affair…

Why I Love Them

-They are so versatile. Just like jean pants, they go with practically any color, pattern, texture or fabric.

-They are crazy comfortable….because they are denim. Duh.

-They are timeless. I mean, hello?! I pray denim never goes out of style.

How To Wear Them

-Dress down with some camo and/or cut off shorts to dress it down.



-Add an oversized scarf, statement necklace and brightly colored skinny jeans.


-Wear with oversized sunnies, leggings and an oversized t-shirt for a last minute outfit.


-Dress it up with a belted maxi (perfect date night outfit).


And I want to get married to my husband all over again, so I can wear a jean jacket with my wedding dress. Why didn’t I think of that six years ago?!?? How cute is this?!

What I Love: Summer Dresses

Posted on

Why I Love Them

-As the heat rises, they are perfect for keeping you cool.

-Takes no thought, just pick a dress, shoes & necklace and you have a complete outfit.

-Totally feminine, even for just running errands.

How To Wear Them

-Choose a flowy material that isn’t too clingy (helps for airflow when the temp rises near 100 degrees).

-Belt it loosely to accentuate your waistline.

-Pair with ballet flats or sandals for a dressy casual look.

-Works well with a braided up-do or high ponytail.

Best Bathing Suit I’ve Ever Owned

Posted on

Let me start off by saying that I’d rather go to the beach on a cold and overcast day in sweats than to be caught dead in a swim suit. I am not the type that likes to show too much, if any skin. I am incredibly modest and prefer to cover up any spots (*cough my stomach, thighs and butt cough*) that just aren’t that lovely and should be hidden away from any seeing person.

That being said, I have found a new suit that I LOVE and that pushes me out of my comfort zone, although I’ve never felt sexier. Go figure.


Here’s the story:

Right before Memorial Day, I was shopping at Target and got the urge to buy a new swimsuit. It has been two years since I bought my last swimsuit and I was still working off some baby weight back then, so there aren’t good memories attached to it (you mamas know what I mean). It’s a tankini and nothing is wrong with it per se, it’s just not incredibly flattering.

I went looking through the bathing suits and threw three one piece suits (two were the same in a different size) in my cart and walked to check out. There is no way I was going to put myself through trying on a bathing suit with those dressing room mirrors and bad lighting. No thank you.

I took them home and tried on the first one. And it was love at first sight. It definitely shows more chest area than I prefer, but it boosts my girls right up, instead of flattening them in an unflattering tube like my tankini.

I looked at the tag and realize it’s made by Assets which is a version of Spanx.


I really wish someone would have told me this ten years ago. I would have possibly attended a lot more pool parties sans board shorts and t-shirt. 😉

No wonder I feel so incredibly sexy! It hugs/lifts in all the right places and is a HUGE boost of confidence to this mother of two.

If you need a bathing suit for this summer, I urge you to look at Target. You can buy the same one as me online here. (I got a Large and normally wear a 10-12.)

Happy Fashion Friday!
