summer outfit ideas floral dress polka dot shorts striped maxi dress

You guys!  I’m alive!  It’s been officially 5 straight days with no breastfeeding.  I honestly wasn’t sure we were going to survive this weaning process but here we are.  It hasn’t been easy but Milan is a champ!  In case you need to wean your toddler, I wrote about my journey and what method I used here.  I’ve also enjoyed a cup of coffee every single day this week and I feel like a new woman.  So awake but slightly jittery.  My body is like what the heck is this? LOL

Here’s what’s happening this weekend as far as sales.  Get 40% off at Loft with code NEWNOW.  Ann Taylor is having 40% off full price tops and accessories.  Loving this polka dot bow sleeve top so much!  J.Crew Factory has so many cute new arrivals!  Get $25 off $100 with code MORE (some exclusions apply).  I have my eye on this textured ruffle tank, striped faux wrap dress and this seersucker apron dress.

I’ve been debating on whether or not to keep this striped maxi dress but ultimately decided that it was too comfortable NOT to keep.  I also got such a great deal on it (under $30).  Plus the length is perfect and requires no alterations.  The only downside are the straps are way too long (took them up) and sizing runs on the larger side.  Read my full review HERE.

Dress: c/o Flutter sleeve floral ruffle hem dress (size XS) | Hat: c/o Tuckernuck bow hat | Sandals: Kristin Cavallari | Purse: c/o Boho Peach  Watch: c/o kate spade | Cuff: c/o kate spade (similar HERE)

How pretty is this floral dress?  It’s under $20 and petite friendly!  I’m wearing size XS and it fits similar to a 00P.  The length hits below my knees so it’s great for a business environment and Church.  Love the flutter sleeves and ruffle hem.  FYI – it does come with a matching belt but looks fine without it.

I was cleaning out my closet the other day and found these cute polka dot shorts!  It’s not often I wear shorts because I still feel so awkward in them for some strange reason.  I just sent a huge sack of clothes to thredUP so if you are similar in size, you may want to check it out – tons of J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic items.  I’ll keep you posted when I see my items hit their site. 🙂

On another note, this split cuff cardigan is so versatile.  So happy the sleeves are the perfect length (so rare).   Sizing runs true to size and I’m wearing size PP (petite petite). It’s currently 40% off!  This would be a cute beach cover up too – love it!

This peplum top is $8.  Yes only $8!  Sizing runs true to size and slightly wide and boxy.  I honestly haven’t had time to try it on (will soon).  I love the print and peplum style.  The material is thin and slightly sheer but can you really complain for $8?  Not really (lol).  I’ll try it on this weekend and post it on my Instagram. Have a great weekend! XO
