    Dressing Room Diaries: Anthropologie

    Tomorrow is Friday, and let me tell you, I could not be more excited. We survived another week with my husband out of town, and I am SO hoping we can find time this weekend to go out shopping and finally furnish this new house we are in. It doesn’t quite feel like home yet, and because of that, I pretty much do whatever I can to get out of the house and stay busy.

    It rained all day today, so it was the perfect day for the mall, and I am still in shock at how well behaved the girls were. We shopped for almost three hours (what?!) and they didn’t fuss or cry once!

    One of the main reasons we were at the mall for three hours… these dresses! I have never been stopped more in my life, by complete strangers, than I was today.

    The dresses run true to size, I just ordered a size up so they would last the girls through fall and winter.

    Okay, now to the good part. I found four tops that I am absolutely obsessed with, and they actually have me excited about transitioning into the fake fall that we have here in South Florida.

    The first is this tee. I have talked about this top before, because I got it in pink back in the Spring, but it is seriously the softest tee I own. It is under $50 and seriously can’t be beat. It comes in four colors right now and by the end of the month I may have them all.

    This embroidered top is just so perfect and so light weight. I love all of the detail with the stripes, the ruffles, and the florals that I just couldn’t put it back.

    I am pretty sure this one was my favorite. I love the pale blue and the cut is just so easy. I love a good front tuck, and this shirt is perfect for that. Another light-weight option that you can wear now and later.

    Finally, there’s this little beauty. Clearly I have a problem, and I can’t help myself when it comes to white blouses with lace, or ruffles, or anything for that matter. But this one is just so good. The floral detail around the neck is so pretty, and I couldn’t believe it was under $100.

    Hope you all have a great weekend!

    4 Fab Finds at Anthropologie

    Okay, so I know I am just as guilty as the rest at posting about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but all of that fall merchandise just had me longing to get back to the reality that we are in, and that is summer!

    We are headed out for another vacation next week, and I just needed to get back in the summer and beach mindset, and find some new cute pieces that I could wear now. Read more…


    Christmas in July with The Mulberry Tree

    This post was sponsored by The Mulberry Tree. All opinions are my own based on my experience with the company, service, and products.

    Every Fourth of July week, my family heads up to our mountain home in North Carolina for some time together and a break from the Florida heat. This year was no different, and we were actually able to get nine days away to relax, play in the woods, shop some of our favorite boutiques, and celebrate the fourth as a family.

    Every year we consider participating in the Country Club’s golf cart parade, where everyone decorates their golf cart and parades through the neighborhood throwing candy and necklaces, but we just never seem to get our act together. However, we did manage to celebrate the holiday with our matching pjs from The Mulberry Tree.

    From the time Juliet was born, pjs have been one of my favorite things to buy. Baby and toddler pjs are just too cute. And if you follow my Instagram, you also know that I like to match with my girls on occasion a lot. So matching my girls, in our pjs, is just the best of both worlds.

    We had so much fun playing and lounging around the house in our pjs, and I just loved that each set was unique in it’s fabric and monogram.

    The Mulberry Tree also specializes in party decor, garland, and banners, and the girls loved playing with their Fourth of July garland all over the house!

    We order matching Christmas pjs every year, and last year we ordered from a different company that had sent us a catalogue in the mail. When we received the pajamas, I was sent the correct sizes in the tops, but two size 2t bottoms. Anniston was only 9 months old and there was absolutely no way we could make them work. I was so disappointed with the error the company had made, and because it was so close to Christmas, there was nothing we could do.

    This year, I will not let that happen again. The customer service at The Mulberry Tree is amazing, and they were even willing to make Juliet’s pants to her exact leg length to make sure they fit her! I look forward to getting our matching Christmas pjs this year! I know it is only July, but is it really ever too soon to start shopping for Christmas?
