I kind of love the one shoulder trend making a comeback. I remember in college, I had a hot pink ruffle one shoulder top that I loved and would wear on repeat to fraternity parties and the Cellar {yes, it was a bar in Fort Worth that was below ground, dingy but made an amazing Jame's Special and therefore was a popular bar for the coeds. I still do not know what was in that drink...}

There are endless one shoulder options currently available for summer, but I know that you are not surprised that I gravitated towards this navy one, but I also love this light blue one.  Shop some other one shoulder wonders below!






5 THINGS


1. My husband as asked me more than once to cancel the Chandon champagne club membership I have had for 6 + years more than once. I keep telling him that I will get to it...

2. His reasoning is we are too old to drink bad champagne and therefore has come home every Friday night with a bottle of Vueve. That we promptly finish...that night.

3. I try to eat healthy, plant based meals everyday. But I grew up with an extreme sweet tooth and affinity for chips. And french fries. And ice cream.

4. I have an unhealthy English Royalty Obsession. 

5. I sometimes imagine what my tag line would be for "The Real Housewives of San Diego" Not that I would every do that show...but I still can't come up with a good tag line. Probably something along the lines of: "Family above everything else." And then I would be that housewife that wouldn't share anything personal, wouldn't be filmed at home and wouldn't let her kids be on camera. Sounds like a success...

wednesday wishlist: 4th of July

red white and blue fashion

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 13


You know that I love anything in navy and I live for a stripe, but I tend not to have too much red in my closet. This Wednesday's wishlist is to get you ready for the long weekend, at all price points {#8 is only $20 but I am excited for #12 to arrive, which is not $20...}


#3 is from one of my favorite places to get baby clothing, especially for little boys: not too feminine and no graphic tees! Plus, you can get things monogrammed. Almost everything in my son's closet is from here. {and here}

nude pink lips

While I am not a fan of the celebrity this color is named after, I cannot deny that it is the perfect pink lipstick. I have seen it on endless bloggers and friends and it is truly flattering on everyone!

As you saw on my Insta Story on Sunday, the blush pink romper I was wearing perfectly accented this ultra flattering color. I promise your summer tan will too! {I did a light layer of my favorite lip balm to ensure the light color went on ultra smooth.}

high waisted distressed jeans outfit

I got a ton of questions about these white high waisted distressed denim. They are under $80 and I now want them in every wash. Thank goodness for mom jeans!

The top is from Zara and can be found here, but I included some similar options below. 





suede bow sandals


Tired of seeing these shoes yet? I thought I would wear all equally, but the navy ones are getting worn three times as often as these pink ones. Oops. 





navy lace dress


When I first came across this dress, I thought it was too good to be true. It is a designer dupe and under $75. I couldn't order it quickly enough and worn it to celebrate our anniversary. 







polka dot off the shoulder dress

I love this navy dress and think that it would be perfect for any 4th of July celebration. Paired with white sneakers {I just order these!}, it makes is festive but functional to chase around your little ones. Plus, off the shoulder makes for easy breast feeding. The all around functional dress, mommy or not and under $45.





nameplate necklace stack


I love the mix of these free necklaces, plus what could be they more perfect with your little loves' names on them? Lipliner in 'Edge to Edge' and lipstick in 'Modesty'.

My timing is way off...

I can't stop wearing all white! It doesn't stay white for long with two little ones and my desire to make all their food and let them feed themselves. This quickly translates into pureed food everywhere, including all over me! 

Nevertheless, I love white on white all times of the year, but it is perfect this time of year with a cold shoulder top. This one is one of current favorites as it comes in 4 colors {including 4th of July ready in red} and is $35. Pair it with your white jeans and a red lip for all of your 4th of July festivities. 



5 THINGS 

1. I'm a vegetarian. I haven't eaten beef since I was 8 and chicken since I was 21. I do love sushi and salmon but I try to limit fish meals to 1-2 a week. 

2. My daughter was not conceived in Madrid, but I am asked this about once a week. It was the first city that my then boyfriend and I traveled together and walking around the city one afternoon, we both agreed it would make a really cool name. 

3. I have run over 5 half marathons but the idea of a full marathon is still crazy to me.

4. My in-laws have Rottweilers that have bitten multiple people: most of our uncles, the maid, the pool man. They love me for some reason...

5.  I changed my major 8 times in college. Started out pre-med and ended up with a Political Science/ History degree.

my go-to lip color

mac lipliner edge to edge

mac lipliner edge to edge

This is my all time favorite color combo and my current go-to for everything from running errands with my cuties to date night with my hubby. I find that a light coat of BURT'S BEES CHAPSTICK makes the lip super smooth and plump and therefore easier to color in the entire lip with the MAC LIP PENCIL IN EDGE TO EDGE. I start by outlining the lips then do quick, long strokes on the bottom lip, staring at the corner of the mouth. I rub my lips together a couple of times and then fill in any sparse spot. 

This will totally change the way you look at any of your current lip pencils in your makeup drawer!

navy peplum top outfit

I would wear this outfit everyday, if I could {keep it clean}.






light wash jean jacket outfit

In love with this tank! So soft and drapey and easy to nurse in. {under $18}





scalloped flat sandals

These scalloped flat sandals are so comfy and 4th of July ready with my favorite pedi-ready red.





chambray ruffle top

I have been looking for the perfect pair of denim cut-offs and these are perfect. Flattering, distressed but with a cuff and a slightly high waisted cut, I went up a size to give them a loose, boyfriend cut look. 





daisy top outfit

I couldn't wait to wear this daisy top again {last time, it was covered in organic sweet potato puree since I thought it would be a good idea to wear for dinner time with my two cuties}. We went to my favorite restaurant and then to one of my favorite places to kick of the anniversary weekend.
