The Momkini 

So here we are one baby, a few stretch marks, and some extra skin later. Am I going to let that stop me from my love of bathing suits, sand, and Summer fun? Absolutely not! I found this adorable one piece at Aeropostale and thought I would share it with all of you moms out there (or maybe you women that just don’t love your mid section right now)! The color alone just screams fun. I also love the ruffle top. It’s perfect and it’s under $40!

So Modish Boutique

I’m super excited to share today’s look with you guys. I’ve been lucky enough to team up with some new boutique friends once again!

The best part….if you see something you like you can enter coupon code “Kara15” at checkout to receive 15% off your total purchase. Happy Hump Day!

Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! I’m sharing my festive look with you on the blog today and I must say, I am certainly glad the weekend is here. Joshua and I have a lot of changes we are adjusting to! In the last two months I’ve switched from being a full-time stay-at- home mom to being a full time work-from- home mom, flipping houses! Joshua has had a career change in the last month and is now his own business owner. I try to help as much as possible. It’s been a super exciting and scary process but he is flourishing non the less. We have recently sold our home in Tennessee and will be moving back to Virginia soon, another big change at a crazy time in our lives! Although there are a lot of changes going on for us, we are finally relying on prayer for all of our decision-making. Why is that so hard to do? To give up our own plans and give them to God?! I must say, it has been the most peaceful process we’ve gone through as a married couple and I wish we had started sooner. I am trying to keep up with my blogging in the midst of the madness, so you guys be patient with me! It’s hard to be a fashionista when I stay paint covered and dirty these days! I hope you like todays look. Stay inspired everyone!

Outfit details: I got an express gift card for my birthday, so I had fun going in and putting together an outfit to take on our weekend get-a-way a few weeks ago. This  top is just as comfortable as it is cute! Some off shoulders can be binding, but I’m not kidding, I could sleep in this one. The skirt was also comfy and very cool for an evening in Florida. It’s such a fun piece. I love all of the floral detailing along with the adorable buttons on the front. The shoes are also Express and I love them! I am a shoe freak and usually have summer shoes in every color. I thought these are both fun and pratical! My necklace is from Charming Charlie. I got it a couple of years ago so I linked a similar one that I thought would also go really cute with this outfit!

Road Trippin’

Wednesday night I drove my baby boy to my mom’s house to be dropped off for the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, I already talked a little bit about this. It is the hardest thing to leave your kids and go on trips after you become a mom! I used to hear women say this and think, “That is crazy! It’s just a couple of nights, and you need the break.” It’s just different when it is your own. I feel guilty, like he is being mistreated by being left! Are there any other moms who deal with trip anxiety? My mind also goes to dark places, like, “What if we get in wreck and leave him behind.” What? Why do we do this to ourselves?! I know we shouldn’t feel this way, but something changes when you become a mom. Continue reading “Road Trippin’”

Bluegreen Vacations

Pink Flamingos

It’s been a couple weeks since our trip to Florida and I’ve been doing some reminiscing. There’s one thing I know for sure, and that is you cannot go to the beach without eating at a good Seafood restaurant! We arrived in St. Augustine late on a Thursday afternoon and did not feel like driving much more. We decided it would be a good night for some local seafood, so we asked around to find the best one. We were in luck! We landed at St. Mary’s Seafood restaurant. Joshua got the cat-fish and I had the crab cakes (my seafood favorite). It was soooo yummy! Our sides were bacon mac n’ cheese and cream corn. This rarely happens, but I ALMOST ate every bite. We were very pleased with our experience there! Continue reading “Pink Flamingos”
