Love these cute patterned diapers!

best sunscreen for the beach

Beckam became the sunscreen hoarder. He had to put it on everyone’s face and would carry the sunscreen around in his little sand bucket and took it with him everywhere while we were at the beach lol.

kids speedo

Dying over his mini speedo!! He still has a little baby fat on his legs (you can’t really tell in this pic, but it’s like the last bit of baby-ness left on him. I love how his little speedo still shows his cute little thighs!) They have so many cute patterns here. It’s actually a swim diaper but I just used it as a swimsuit.

They say there are no sharks in Greece so this was the most swimming I’ve done in anything other than a swimming pool in maybe 5 years! I know it’s so pathetic haha but it was so fun remembering what it’s like to be back at that age when you don’t think twice about the dangers.

The kids could seriously live in the water! It’s always a fight when it’s time to leave – we hear: “Just 5 more minutes! Just 5 more!”

Mykonos was the third stop on our family trip this summer. I didn’t know much about it before we got there. It was actually Cody’s pick – I chose Santorini and I was sure there was nothing that could beat it but I fell in love with Mykonos even more! Our family is all about the beach and the Santorini beaches were all pretty rocky which made for a great view but Mykonos actually had sand so it made for a good beach day.

Our favorite beaches were Super Paradise and Pink Beach (although Cody still swears nothing compares to the beaches in Hawaii ;). They are actually both in the same cove but are considered two separate beaches. Paraga Beach was another good one. They had cheap massages on the beach and amazing fresh fruit!

As much time as we spent outside and at the beach, sunscreen was a daily staple. I always wish I had taken better care of my skin when I was younger – take it from me, never skip the SPF! I love the Honest sunscreen stick (so did B – he would not put it down lol). It’s so easy to carry around (and never any mess) and makes applying sunblock on the kids so easy. It doesn’t get in their eyes when we apply it on their face so it’s easier to make sure they get full coverage without worrying about getting it in their eyes.

You guys know what a big fan I am of Jessica and the Honest brand. We have some exciting projects coming up! But today I am teaming up with them to giveaway a sunscreen bundle and 30% off your first month’s essentials bundle with code: HF30. They seriously have the cutest diapers ever and so many other things we use daily at our home.

Seriously so obsessed with these boots!

Embroidered Jacket

DETAILS: EMBROIDERED DENIM JACKET (WEARING SIZE 38) | WHITE LACE DRESS (WEARING SIZE 4) | EMBELLISHED GUCCI BOOTS | SUNGLASSES | BAG

Happy Friday!!! We got back from California and are in full party mode! Wes birthday is Monday so we have his friends party Saturday and family party Sunday. Wes is so so excited he keeps asking the days and hours until his party 🙂

This was one of my favorite outfits from NYFW. Each one of these pieces I found at really different times but had that OMG moment when I tried them on. Gucci has a new designer and all their pieces are so beyond good! Designer pieces are always a big investment but the amount of detail they put into the pieces are so gorgeous. I wanted to pair feminine and grunge together for a “tough meets girly glam” type look. The lace detail of this dress is the perfect feminine contrast with an appliqued denim jacket. Plus a denim jacket is a great casual layer for fall to be able to transition your favorite dresses into the season with a pair of leather ankle boots to complete the look.

I have been obsessed with these boots ever since I got them. I’ve been wearing them non-stop with everything from dresses to denim. They were definitely a splurge but one that will make a wardrobe statement forever.

I also put together a list of similar pieces to recreate this look on a budget below!

BUDGET FINDS: DENIM  JACKET (UNDER $100) | WHITE LONG SLEEVE LACE DRESS  (UNDER $50 – LOVE THIS ONE UNDER $100)| STUDDED ANKLE BOOTS (UNDER $60) | SUNGLASSES (UNDER $100) | SHOULDER BAG WITH HANDLE (UNDER $200)

Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Fall is hands down my favorite season for fashion! I always get so excited to try all the latest styles and finding budget buys make it so easy to refresh my fall wardrobe. I have been obsessed with all things ruffles and love the way they are being incorporated into this season’s looks! This olive green blouse (under $50 – also comes in blush) is such a good find and the ruffle detail makes it read a lot more expensive than the price tag. I also love this nude satin top (under $50)- such a good neutral for the season!

Velvet is another one of the fall trends I’m most excited about. I just got these velvet booties in black and want one in every color. These are the perfect heel height and a steal under $100! Nordstrom is running triple points right through Sunday now so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite fall pieces and earn triple rewards. Below are some of my favorite picks right now:

And below are a few more great finds under $100:
