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.  Click READ MORE to view the full post.

summer outfits polka dot scalloped cardigan striped midi skirt ruffle bodysuit

As you know, I am trying to wean Miss Milan off breast milk and it hasn’t been easy to say the least.  Starting Monday, I’ll be going full force and I’m determined to stop nursing.  It’s been almost 2.5 years and I’m ready.  My body is most definitely ready.  I can’t wait to enjoy a huge cup of coffee, regular manicures/pedicures among other luxuries I stopped doing since I got pregnant.  Wish me luck (lol)!

On to the sales this weekend.  Get 40% off Ann Taylor with code: SPF40 (just ordered this, this and this).  Get $10 tanks, $15 tees and $20 shorts at Loft (select full price styles).  J.Crew is having 40% off vacation must haves with code: SCORE.  I haven’t bought anything from them in so long.  Did their styles/clothes change or something because I haven’t liked much lately…however there are some cute swimwear right now.  If you missed out on the target ruffle swimsuit, this one is a great option and currently on sale!  Click READ MORE to view the full post.

little black dress with pockets straw pom pom bag

I tend to shy away from black cotton dresses because I can’t stand how you can see everything like lint and fuzz.  It’s one of my pet peeves so I wasn’t expecting to keep this black tie waist dress however…click READ MORE to view the full post!

Happy June!  Isn’t it crazy to think that Summer is right around the corner?  This year is flying by!  As a reminder, you still have until Sunday to shop the Nordstrom half-yearly sale (see my picks HERE)!  My favorite purchase are these slingback sandals – super soft and comfortable.  Ann Taylor is only having 40% off select right now styles (not that great) however I noticed this seersucker blazer looks just like my favorite skirt from last summer!  Get 50% off must have summer styles at Loft (love this sweater).  J.Crew Factory has tons of cute stuff and I’m swooning over this seersucker apron dress – the back is to die for.  Make sure to click READ MORE to view the full post because you do not want to miss the second outfit!

gingham knot ruffle hem dress

I’m so over this May gray weather!  Who’s with me?  I need the sun to come back out because it totally affects my mood and activities with Milan.  I now remember why I disliked living in Minnesota so much.  It’s always gloomy and I couldn’t stand it.  Anyway, since Summer is right around the corner, I thought I’d share some summer outfit inspiration.  Make sure to click READ MORE to see all the outfits!
