Yet again - another day, another off the shoulder dress. Other than the fact that I am absolutely loving the feminine detailing of the off the shoulder trend alone (clearly) along with the ruffles and floral print on this dress. I am also loving that I have been able to style every single one of these dresses as tops too! You can't beat a two for one! I love pairing them with denim cut offs, white skinny jeans and even distressed light colored jeans. Also, as many of my other dresses this year, as soon as I feel like I have worn them as a dress or top one too many times, I will also start wearing this one as a beach cover up!
By the way, I am on the hunt for two new pairs of denim cut offs (in white and blue) for this summer. I will let you guys know when I find some worth telling you about!!! :)

A Dress As Sweet As a Pineapple

Thursday, April 28

Hey guys!! It is almost the weekend!!! So I have to tell you, when I originally ordered this dress  for UNDER $18!!!! I had all intentions of wearing it and doing my shoot on the beach. I was going to have pina coladas with umbrellas in my drink, this super sweet pineapple, round beach towels and etc. Then I realized - while a lot of my readers are from Florida and the coast - not all of you are and I wanted to show you that you can wear this dress just about anywhere this summer. It can be worn as a dress or as a bathing suit cover up. I will probably wear it as a dress a hand full of times and then switch it over to a cover up. I absolutely love the tassel detail on the back and the ruffled hem! This dress also comes in a super sweet blue and white stripe for only a few dollars more - still under $25!

I paired it with super simple, clean white flip flops from Oka-b because a. they are extremely comfortable and easy to clean, (one swipe with a magic eraser and they look brand new) and b. I wanted to be able to slip them on and off easily. As much as I love a lace up or gladiator sandal, they are not always the easiest to slip on and off quickly.

Top Spring Baby Items

Wednesday, April 27

Becoming a mom, one of the things I struggled with most was trying to figure out what things I needed to be prepared for the new baby. That being said, even it isn't necessarily a necessary item, it is not to know - is this item really worth it. Thankfully, I recently discovered the Baby Cubby. This site is for every parent out there who has ever felt overwhelmed or discouraged about becoming a parent due to the amount of items there are to choose from, after all - we all want our children to have the very best.  The Baby Cubby team is made up of parents who have been there, they know what it’s like and are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, and reminding parents how amazing they are and how important their role is.

Baby Cubby is doing ALL the research and finding the best and safest baby gear and providing it to parents in a fun shopping experience where they do things like test strollers on their stroller track, price match everyday - even amazon, offer free shipping nationwide for orders over $49 at and actively engage with parents via social media and the cubby community blog to discuss some of those hard topics of parenting.

Since Baby Cubby does all of the hard work for us by making sure they only sale the best, it gave me much comfort to recommend all of these items I picked out for you guys for spring - you will also notice they only have particular strollers, carseats and gear - showing you they only chose the best products of the best brands. All items above can be found on and we actually own several of these items, so I have even tested them myself! We actually just got Walker this new carseat from Baby Cubby as well!
