The White One Piece

I don’t even know where to begin about this one piece swim suit! I have searched high and low for a functional whole piece that is suitable for my mom figure and I could comfortably wear while chasing Adler around this Summer. 

I have to say I finally found one that I literally wanted to wear every day at the beach. This suit is well lined, covers well, and is so very comfortable. I HATE having to constantly pull at swim suits once they get wet. This suit felt perfectly glued to me and I loved it! The price was a little more than I cared to pay for at the time, but “you get what you pay for” seems to be really important in this scenario! I’m linking it here for you guys. I hope you love it as much as I do!! Also it is half price right now, so act fast!! 

P.S. you can find my jean shorts here.  I am also in love with them! They are high wasted and aren’t booty shorts!!

Beach Bound

We are having the best time with our little man this year. He’s at such a fun age! Yesterday we started off the day watching dad paddle board and catching hermit crabs. I have to say this is the first time I have actually seen hermit crabs in the wild! Adler was amused yet somewhat hesitant when they would creep out of their shell.

We have spent our week running back and forth between the marsh and the ocean, we’ve fished, paddle boarded, surfed, tried out some kayak’s, explored the sand with Adler, and eaten more than we should. This is what vacation is all about ❤

Sharing some of our outfit details below 🙂

Rash Guard / Trunks / Water Shoes / Hat (TJ Maxx find)

Of course Adler had to give paddle boarding a try. He has to do everything dad does right now.

My swimsuit is from SheIn and is only $18!!

Hello From Litchfield Beach

 

Good morning from Litchfield Beach! It may be vacation but Joshua and I are on the Adler’s time clock. We’ve already been up long enough to cook ourselves a gourmet breakfast and take a morning bike ride. Adler is already down for his first nap, so I decided to do a little blogging!

Litchfield is one of my favorites! (The more I blog, the more I realize I have a lot of favorite places). We have a perfect location for riding bikes, so we took Adler and his cousins to get a little morning workout.

We have been coming here every Summer with Joshua’s family ever since we have been together (I believe this is our 7th Summer here). As I have gotten older, I love the fact that the beaches are NOT crowded. We have all the space in the world, so if you are a fan of that as well, you would love this vacation spot. Aside from the desolate beaches, there’s a beautiful private drive situated in between the ocean front rentals and the marsh across the road. Your front porch view is a marsh where you can fish, cast nets, watch others, or the sunset; and your back porch view is the ocean! This place is what I call my little slice of heaven :). Next Summer’s vacation spot for you…Litchfield Beach in South Carolina!

Sharing with you this adorable exercise outfit I found at Target. You can find the workout outfit here. If you are looking in stores it is the C9 Champion brand. From what I can tell, the sports bra is only available in stores. My ever so comfortable white t-shirt is the American Eagle “soft and sexy” brand. My tennis shoes are the Nike Flex Trainer 7 and can be found here! Lastly, my sunglasses can be found here…for $9 I might add 🙂

Thanks for Stopping by guys!

Wilderness at the Smokies

I am NOT kidding you when I tell you that Wilderness at the Smokies is seriously one of my most favorite places on Earth! My family and I used to go for New Years Weekend, but the past two Summers we have taken advantage of the warm weather and stay for a long weekend with my Grandmother. She’s not crazy about the beach these days, so this is a perfect spot for her to find shade and stay entertained by the kiddos. Continue reading “Wilderness at the Smokies”

Hot Pink Pleated Top

Coffee, coffee, and more coffee! We had a packed but successful Memorial Day weekend. We started by going on a little family fishing trip Friday night to Boone lake. Joshua is in a big brother program, so we got to take his “little brother” and guide him through catching a fish, which literally made his night. It was awesome.

Striped Bow Top

Soon I am going to be doing a Shein review for guys! I’m sure most of you have already seen their ads and other bloggers wearing their clothes. I spent all of my Birthday money with them and this top is one of the purchases I made! It is definitely a contender for Memorial Day!

I am linking a similar top here and here. The actual top I have on seems to be sold out at the moment (sigh). The great thing about this top and the others linked are that they can be worn with the bow on the front or back! Who knew! 

This cute little fedora was a TJ Maxx find from last year. I thought it added just the right touch to my red and white outfit. I am linking a similar one here.

How cute are these lace-up red sandals? I fell in love when I first saw them. They are easy to put on and make a statement with any outfit. I am going to link the striped version as well, just because I love them all! You can also find my white pants here. They have been on repeat for me this Spring. They are definitely a staple piece that I think every girl needs. You can find a similar pair of red floral studs here.

Stay Inspired,

Kara

Hello friends! If you have an upcoming vacation and aren’t sure what accessories you want or need, I have you covered! I’m excited to share with you these adorable items I found for you, and they are all under $40 per piece!

Anything that has a pom pom or a tassel on it, says “buy me please”! You guys, they are HOT items for the season. You don’t have to break the bank to get in on the latest trends. TJ Maxx has this adorable pom bag for 20 bucks and Wal-Mart has pom sandals for $10!! That is a steal.

Aside from poms and tassels, pineapples are the latest rage. This is why my jaw dropped over this adorable ball cap. I think every girl that goes to the beach, lake, or pool needs a cute little cap to throw on with her bathing suit.

Round beach towel anyone? I can personally vouch that these are super convenient and give you much more room for activities! And how cute are the flamingos? I want this one for my self!

I hope this serves as a vacay guide! I may or may not have to get a few of these for myself! I’m a sucker for things that are affordable AND fashionable. Who isn’t?

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you stay inspired!
