My Most-Worn Items This Summer

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end soon! Yesterday was the first day back to school for most schools here and over the weekend we got a bit of fall-like weather. It was so nice to have the windows open throughout our house, take Avett for walks, and actually be able to enjoy being outside without sweating! Even though I am looking forward to fall and all it entails, I have really enjoyed summer. It’s been a great albeit hot summer with lots of memories made! Today I wanted to share my most-worn items from this summer. These are all items that I found myself reaching for time and time again these past few months!

   my most worn summer favorites

  1. MZ WALLACE MEDIUM METRO TOTE | This bag has been my favorite for travel for a few years now. I have used it so often for vacations, weekend trips & even grocery trips. It’s the best carry-all bag.
  2. RAY-BAN SUNGLASSES | These are definitely my go-to sunglasses. These are similar to the wayfarer style, but a little more feminine!
  3. CLARE V. BAG | I bought this bag in spring and have certainly gotten it’s fair share of use! It holds way more than it seems like it would and always adds a fun element to an outfit.
  4. PENDANT COIN NECKLACE | This necklace looks great with almost any outfit – from a LBD to a white tee and shorts!
  5. GOLDEN GOOSE SNEAKERS | These have become my go-to travel sneakers. They are so comfortable, look chic and I love wearing them when I’m doing a lot of walking – whether that’s in the airport or around a new city. I like these particular ones because they don’t look dirty, like some others do!
  6. LITTLE WHITE MIDI DRESS | This has been a summer classic for quite a few years now. It’s such an easy, breathable dress to throw on throughout the warm summer months. Plus, it can be styled so many different ways!
  7. BOYFRIEND JEANS | I ordered these right before summer started and have worn them so often! It’s typically pretty chilly in restaurants and these have been a great alternative to skinny jeans!
  8. SWIMSUIT | I really like the simple style of this swimsuit (and that the bottoms are full coverage). I have this style in a few prints I like it so much!
  9. NEUTRAL WEDGES | Finding a good neutral pair of wedges is harder than one might think. I was SO happy when I found these because they look so nice and they’re really comfortable.
  10. AGOLDE SHORTS | I totally didn’t buy into the hype of these shorts for quite some time. In the spring I decided to order a pair & it’s confirmed, I get the hype! They’re a great length, not too tight on the thighs and they wear so well.
  11. MADEWELL TOPS | These are some of my favorite tops, no matter the season! The oversized fit is great (especially when it’s so hot!).
  12. OVERSIZED DENIM JACKET | Although it’s been hot here, every store & restaurant tends to blast the AC. I always bring a jacket with me so I’m not freezing!
  13. WHITE DENIM | White denim is hard to find, but this pair is excellent. This pair isn’t too tight and they’re not see through in the slightest.
  14. BRIXTON HAT | This has been my tried-and-true hat for many years now! It’s cute for pool/beach days and looks equally as cute with sundresses!
  15. GOLD SANDALS | These sandals go with just about everything in this collage – and it’s safe to say I have worn them with most things! I have a few different colors and so does my mom!
  16. PLAID BEACH BAG | This is such a fun, colorful beach/pool bag! It has top handles as well as a shoulder strap. If anything spills inside of it, it can easily be wiped right off.
  17. SMALL TRANSPORT TOTE | If you’re looking for a simple, functional crossbody bag – look no further! This transport tote is the perfect size & it has a zipper to keep your belongings safe!
  18. WHITE COVERUP | I adore this chic coverup! It’s super affordable and you’ll look really put together by the pool or the beach.
  19. MAXI DRESS | I have this dress in a red floral and it’s been a great flirty dress for summer. It’s lightweight and breathable – but you still look cute and put together!

  • A little mid-week floral happiness for ya! 🌸 hows everyone doing this week? I’m having a pretty good week so far - sharing a few things I’m thankful for this week:
• a loving, supportive husband! I haven’t been out of the house in 2+ weeks & he’s made sure I have everything I need!
• neighborhood walks, they’re good for the soul & a great way to recharge.
• a great support system near & far keeping me encouraged!
• the ability to catch up with friends! 👩🏼‍💻Had a great zoom call with my #bloggersdotravel girls @mystylevita @glitterandgingham @kristinchambless & @poorlittleitgirl today!
• my endless pile of books that I want to read! 📚I’ve enjoyed unplugging and reading every day. #booksconnectus

share what you’re thankful for this week! 💙 #liketkit #LTKhome #floralarrangement
  • 24 weeks with our baby boy🤰🏼💙 it’s crazy to think we get to meet him in just 16 weeks, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! 👶🏻I feel grateful that I have had a healthy & happy pregnancy but, to be honest, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. As a first time mom, I have these feelings of immense sadness as the last half of this pregnancy is going to be nothing like I had envisioned. There have been a lot of tears over the fact that many exciting moments can no longer be shared with those closest to us. I know others have it much, much worse but I’ve learned it’s ok to be sad & to feel these emotions. I’m upset that I am no longer able to have a baby shower to celebrate our first born, I’m sad I don’t get to hug our family and watch their faces as they see my growing bump. I’m upset that these last few months of just the two of us look completely different - more time spent in our house quarantined and less time having date nights at our favorite spots and doing the things we want before baby arrives. I mourn the fact that our families may not get to meet our baby boy in the hospital the way we always talked about. But with any situation, I have cried it out (a lot) and decided to take it one day at a time and to find joy in each day💙 And ya know what? There’s a lot of joy amidst the chaos. It brings me so much joy to feel his daily movement (and my heart nearly burst when Nick felt him kick for the first time).🥰I am overjoyed that we have such a strong support system near and far. I love that we get to spend more time at home spoiling our fur babies. I find solace knowing that there are so many pregnant mamas out there feeling these exact emotions & we share a common experience and bond! I am grateful for those that are on the front lines caring for everyone. I know we have the best doctors carrying us through this uncertain time. We are strong mamas and we will get through this! 💕 so, I challenge you to find the join in each day no matter your situation! #24weekspregnant #24weeks #pregnancy #2ndtrimester #stylethebump #bumpstyle #pregnant #pregnantduringcovid19 #pregnantblogger #thebump #boymom #expecting #expectingmom

  • How’s everyone doing? 💙 I’m taking it one day (heck, sometimes one hour!) at a time this week!

Here are a few things I’m grateful for:
• Getting to check on our baby boy👶🏻& hear his heartbeat today!
• That I am able to work from home & have some sense of normalcy through all of this👩🏼‍💻.
• Those who are working & caring for others (including doctors, nurses, delivery drivers, those who work at grocery stores & restaurants handling takeout).
• Having this community to chat with through the good & bad days! It’s been so nice connecting with all of you via DM (especially those who are pregnant or new moms!) as we juggle this new “normal.”

  • Hi friends 👋🏻It’s a new week & I’m going into it with a positive attitude (that’s all we can hope for at this point, right?) 💙I’m social distancing & self quarantining in an effort to “flatten the curve.” We spent the weekend going on walks with our pup🐶, getting in a lot of reading📚, binging Love is Blind📺 and cooking some of our favorite meals🍽! We’re trying to remain positive & do the best we can to protect ourselves and others 😊 p.s. I am *loving* this dress (wearing XS) & it’s bump approved - swipe to see a pic of my #22weekspregnant bump! #liketkit #LTKspring #LTKbump #bumpstyle #stylethebump #pregnantblogger #22weeks #expectingmom #babyontheway #2ndtrimester #bumpfriendly
