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!

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

 

Easter Sunday

There’s so many reasons I love Easter! It is such a sacred and joyous day! My little family and I had a slow morning eating breakfast and getting ready. We allowed enough time to get some pictures before we left home, because after church is pure chaos! We were blessed to attend an awesome church service where we were fed The Word and were able to sing Praise and Worship! Wouldn’t it be awesome to start out every day like that?!

After church we headed to Joshua’s parents where his mom always spoils us with a homemade Easter meal. We all enjoyed each other’s company around the dinner table. Later we had our first swim of the season (in the heated pool I might add!) We napped, played outside, and ate some more! Life with a toddler makes these memories so much more! Watching Adler interact with his cousins, discover Easter eggs are not balls after all, insist on wearing his bunny ears, and laugh at water being splashed, ahhhh! Does it get any better?

My Outfit Details: Skirt / Necklace / Wedge Sandals

Feeling Flannels

Today has been eventful to say the least! Joshua is on a hunting trip, so I’m spending the weekend at my parent’s house. With a child of my own, a niece, a nephew, and a sister still in high school, there’s never time to “relax”. We are constantly going on errand runs or chasing kids. My Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law saved the day by keeping Adler for me. Based on the SnapChats I’ve received he’s loving the attention, and I finally have a moment of peace to blog. It’s a win win!

I took advantage of some “me time”and convinced my little sister to be my photographer. We always have fun and I’m glad we got to have a mini hang out session. She’s 100% teenager and a social butterfly, so our times together are limited.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to style a flannel. This one is on repeat for me lately. I love that I can wear it so many different ways. You never feel like you are wearing the same outfit twice if you just style it differently each time (fist pump)! Dress them up or dress them down. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Go get creative with your flannels too!
