Ruffle tank and 4 things on my mind


In my eyes this outfit is perfect.  
The most comfortable pair of white skinnies (seriously so soft and lightweight without being see-through!), a bright eye-catching tank, colorful jewelry, and wedges.  Throw it all on, throw the hair in a pony, grab your sunnies and you're out the door looking chic and ready to take on the day.  







Four things on my mind:
1 - I am a morning person.  I love getting up early (like 5:00/5:30) while everyone is still sound asleep, working out (sometimes! hehe), turning on CNN, and drinking my coffee while I get ready for the day and work on the laptop in peace and quiet.  I look forward to that time each day.  Then I'm ready for the hustle and bustle of fun that comes with 3 kids!

2 - I had been on the hunt for the perfect pair of non-distressed white skinnies for quite some time.  My husband is not a big fan of all the distressed styles lately.  So I thought I'd find a "regular" pair.  These jeans in todays post are fabulous and under $55!

3 - Our oldest goes to camp next week for 4 nights!  I'm excited for her and all the fun she'll have with her friends.  But having her gone for that long without talking to her will be strange.  

4 - My husband and I sat outside last night and enjoyed a bottle of wine by the fire.  It went too fast!  Why do they only make 750 ml bottles or a magnum size (which is too big for two people)?  Trust me - it won't go to waste if we open a second bottle but an in-between bottle size would be perfect!

    I love your outfit what a perfect summery outfit! I can only wish that I was as dedicated as you are to getting up that early. Most days I can barely peel myself out of bed for work. I should start getting up that early, I could more work outs in then.

  10. I really enjoyed reading through your thoughts! I 150% agree with a bigger bottle size for two people because one bottle isn't enough ;) but two bottles may be too much and you're stuttering your way to bed. Reading that actually made me laugh out loud so thanks for that! I'm excited your oldest is going to camp too because I loved going to camp. Although I never truly camped; I mean there was cell service and we were in cabins not sleeping in sleeping bags in the woods so I don't know if it was a true sense of camping, but that was enough camping for me! If you met me, you would know that I consider gazing at the ocean from a hotel room plenty camping for me :-D xx

  21. This outfit is perfect! I know you said in your eyes, but seriously! I love that tank top! Also I am a semi morning person, I can easily wake up in the morning and I love being awake when everyone else is still sleeping, but I honestly am so grouchy. Its something I really want to work on!

  22. I love the ruffles in the back and that your paired this light pink top with this fringe necklace! I'm a morning person too. This morning I was up at 5:45 this morning to join my husband for a fun run that his unit does every month. It feels great getting up that early and it makes your day feel much longer.

  25. Lovely outfit. Both for the ruffled back and the contrast between the yellow of the necklace and the coral of the top. I'm a morning person too and if I don't get my hour of quiet early on, I can be quite grumpy. And my husband isn't a huge fan of distressed either hahah.

    Have a great day!
