Happy long weekend! For those of you in the United States, it’s the Memorial Day weekend and unofficial kick off to Summer! For us, it’s our big Anniversary weekend! We were hoping for a getaway but the area we want to go to is completely booked due to the senior PGA tournament. So it’ll be a day to night date instead on Saturday and on our actual Sunday Anni, we’re going to see… 


Top Gun Maverick

Only been waiting for this sequel to Top Gun for 2 years since its release was postponed during the Pandemic. And essentially been waiting 36 years since the original was released! It’s in my top 10 of favorite movies! AND it’ll be our first time back to the theater since January of 2020! Give me all the concessions, lol! 

I think I should wear THIS TEE!!

I ordered it, should be here today!

2. Festive Attire

This TEE! 

And how about wearing This one all weekend long and right through Fourth of July! This was a favorite purchase from last year and now you can get it all over the place. I will be talking more about Americana tees in a couple weeks but I had to share this one because I realized I never got any pictures of me in it by myself last year. So cute!

Tee HERE // Shorts HERE //Earrings HERE // Flip Flops HERE // Hair Tie HERE


And look at Stella and her red, white and blue! She wore this Cute Romper recently and saw her first train!

My Angel!!

3. TV

This is Us! 

This show has my heart and I bawled like a baby during the last episode of the series on Tuesday night! Did you watch it? The writers of the show are incredible and I have loved the Pearson family so much!

Stranger Things

I never thought I would like this show, Stranger Things, but I love it and I’m excited for season four which starts today!

4. Old Navy Tech & OkaB

As I mentioned in a post last week, the Old Navy Tech line really has my heart, I ended up getting the Joggers in three different colors and isn’t that green just so cool? In addition to the ribbed T-shirts, the Ribbed tanks are even better. They are cool, soft and you can tuck them in or just leave them on the outside, they are not cropped at all. AND look at my Cute Slides from OkaB. The are called the Bette. Stella chewed some pearls off, first shoes she's damaged.

Sooooo CUTE!
AND my dear friends at OkaB are having 25% off their website until June 2nd!! I own 3 pair and LOVE them all!!

Wednesday ~ Favorites


**BE like the old lady below 
this weekend!!!!


Most importantly, we must diligently pray for those affected by the Robb Elementary school shooting in Texas this week! Those beautiful children lost on Earth but now thankfully in the arms of God! Leaving behind grieving and broken hearts all over this world. When are the senseless mass shootings going to stop? 

 Hug on each other extra this weekend, be kind and 

never lose HOPE!!!!!!!

I’m back with more CHICWISH to review because I can’t get enough! My latest spring/summer bonanza has me swooning over their cuteness! 

In my last few Chicwish reviews, (most recent one HERE) I’ve talked all about all the pros and cons of Chicwish so in this one I just want to focus on some of my favorite pieces! Oh the pretty love!

Isn’t the title picture and this outfit just dreamy! Caught the blooms along a pathway at a local college and it accented the magnificent dark floral maxi dress along with a cute crochet top I’ve been wanting from Chicwish forever. I got complemented on this outfit numerous times.

Olé my beautiful babes! Isn’t this Dress just so much fun? And you can wear the sleeves up or off the shoulder. The colors are so spot on summery! I just love the way it flows, the ruffles, the tie sash belt and the wrap front portion a little higher than the back. Asymetrical heaven right there! AND those Red espadrilles were the perfect shoes for this awesome dress!


Oh that BACK!!!!

Will you look at this ombré beauty! This Mesh Tulle Dress is GORGEOUS!! The beige and blue make such a beautiful color combo. This lined dress with the tulle overlay in a blue ombre is such a stunning! This would make a great wedding guest dress.


Will you look at this? The tassels, the fit, the pretty color stripes, this dress called rainbow candies is just a gem! I’m so happy to get some photos of these by the cherry blossom blooms before they were all gone. I love the flowering trees but the blooms dropped so quickly so until next year. But I don’t have to wait next year for this dress cuteness. You will love this one!

Fab Pink Shoes HERE

Jeans with a white leg are all the rage, throw in a slit and so on trend! These light denim jeans with their sailor like side buttons and pull up style have me swooning and oh so comfortable! Dress it up with this pretty pink crochet top; lined and so romantic! It is just darling!!

As you can see, I will be shouting the praises of Chicwish every year with the style, quality and designs they keep putting out! There truly is something for everyone and every occasion and season!


Which outfit or piece is your Favorite??

Hope your week is going sooo GOOD!!!

Hi friends, well we had one rainy day this week but every other day has been picture perfect here in Indiana EXCEPT What originally was supposed to be an 80° weekend is now a Sunday high of 58, boo to that. We were going to take Stella on a day trip to establishments that allow dogs around Lake Michigan, darn it. We’ll figure something else out and I sure hope y’all figure out a great weekend! Inching into total summer mode!

OH and big news, I went to COSTCO for the first time with my friend Kim yesterday. I'm SOLD!

1. Stella the Swimmer


Last weekend it was all warmth and sunshine! We blew up the Big Flamingo from my friend Kate and Miss Stella had her first swim! How cute does she look in her teeny weenie pink Polka Dot Bikini! She just loved floating on that flamingo and of course was a natural swimmer, LOL! We have such an outdoor lover on her hands!

Get that Flamingo HERE and Doggie Bikini HERE //

2. J.Crew Factory 

I don’t know why it is but I really only tend to shop J.Crew and J.Crew Factory in the warmer weather months! So much cuteness to be had and summer frocks! J.Crew factory always has much better prices but the exact same quality! Look how cute these pieces are!

3. Back Porch

Getting the Back Porch cleaned up and ready for Summer Sittin makes me so happy. New Pillows arrived this year and I painted the accent table and lanterns a deeper teal. I did an entire Blog Post when we first put together this look of the porch and now on our 5th summer, it's going strong. I may change colors next year but I love the blue hues with the green.

Newer Version of our exact Sectional HERE
Comes with an extra set of cushion coves which we finally 
switched to this year.

4. Azalea

I only have one azalea and it blooms every spring to only last for about a week, so I made sure I snapped a picture. Such a beautiful lavender shade.

Happy middle of the week my sweets! Sometimes we bloggers share things that aren’t necessarily everyday wear! Like maybe I’ll share dresses that I would only wear to a bridal shower or a wedding, that kind of thing. So today I’m bringing you some things I’ve bought or been gifted that I actually wear on an everyday basis. And it’s not always practical to get out the tripod and snap pics with a remote so today I’m just bringing you some closet selfies of some adorable outfits I love and have been wearing lately!


Let’s start with these Target Tops because I cannot stop wearing them and such great colors! There’s actually several color options and both of these tops are under 20 bucks! 


This Tangerine Cutie has the sweetest ruffle sleeves! Only $15!!!!!

White Linen Pants are a must for the summer and if you like shorts, a good pair of distressed Jean shorts would look cute as well! 

OH, The sweet Bubblegum One Shoulder Wonder Top!! I love this one so much.   Several colors too and $18! I've worn it with White pants, a skirt and now these cute Jean Shorts (Splurge). (Save) version HERE. Pink Oka-B much love for those too!

OK, nothing but pure love for these next two outfits! I have become such a fan of joggers and these Tech Ankle Joggers from Old Navy are spot on spectacular! Old Navy always has such great sales and I will be wearing these around all the time! Size down one if you don’t want them to baggy.

The little Ribbed Knit Tee is shorter so there’s not so much excess to tuck in. I’m going to throw on one of my LuLulemon Bags and I’m good to go!

(TRUTH..I just ordered my 4th Lulu Bag this week (black) LOVE THEM)


With these brown ones (called date palm), I dress them up a little bit with the Gold Chains and Tory Burch Flats! That’s what I love about joggers, so versatile!


Last but not least, these little Ruffle T-Shirts from Express are so soft and darling! I got these in two colors and they will go with so much this summer. Here I just tucked them in some cute linen shorts.

There you go, what I’ve been wearing lately and the outfits that I wear most often. Which outfit is your fav? 
Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Hope your week is going GREAT!!!
