Summer vacay is officially here and I am ready for it! I took last week off from the blog to finish out the year with my kiddos. It was a great week, but also so hectic! Yesterday I had a training and finished “summerizing” my classroom. I am definitely ready for some time off!! My plans for this summer include working on the blog, spending time at the lake, and reading. There is nothing I love more than reading in the summertime and have already ordered a few new books to dive into. Any suggestions for great summer reads? Leave them below!
Speaking of summer, this dreamy little polka dot lace mini dress was made for summer! It’s light-weight and airy, but doesn’t lack in show stopping details. This dress is even prettier in person! From the gorgeous lace hem to the pretty polka dot mesh fabric, it’s a stunning piece that doesn’t break the bank. It’s only $60! This dress would be PERFECT for any brides out there! Think bridal shower, bachelorette or honeymoon, this flirty mini is sure to be a stand out!
SALE ALERT! It’s currently on sale for 30% off with code RESORT30, meaning you can get it for under $45!! Snag this cutie before it’s too late!
When it comes to makeup, I’m a pretty simple girl. I like an every day face, topped with a little glow and a neutral lip. However, as simple as I am, I do love my makeup products and am always looking for the latest and greatest! I especially love show stopping products that are easy to apply but make me feel like a million bucks!
I’ve been looking for a few new summer lip colors, and was immediately drawn to the light up lippies from the new collection. These limited edition products really impressed me and I have officially found my summer lips! My favorite? The Light Up Lipstick. This lipstick is super comfortable, goes on smoothly, dries matte and STAYS PUT. I’ve been loving the soft neutral with a pop Merengue color and have been so impressed with how long lasting it is. This is the perfect lippie to put on while enjoying a summer bbq or drinks with friends. The best part though? When you unscrew the cap, you are in for a surprise as this lipstick features a built in LED light and a mirror, making application easy-peasy. If you are more of a lipgloss kind of gal (who doesn’t love a good gloss?), the Lip Lights Lip Gloss is high-shine and comes in 8 gorgeous colors.
Confession…I have worn this dress 3 times in the last week! It is the ultimate summer midi dress and I can’t get enough of it! Coming from one of my favorite boutiques, Nell + Rose, this dress is meant for summer! From the breezy linen fabric to the neutral palette, it’s the perfect dress for all of your warm weather needs! I have worn this cutie to work (paired with a denim jacket), to church and out and about this past weekend. I love how versatile it is! Have a laid-back summer wedding coming up? Pair this cutie with some heeled sandals or wedges to dress it up. If you buy one thing this summer, let it be this dress…I am telling you, you won’t regret it!
There is no better spring essential than a comfy knit dress. It is a staple in my wardrobe for teaching and the weekend! It’s casual enough to be paired with sneakers and a denim jacket for Saturday errands, but easy enough to dress up a bit with espadrilles for a day at work.
This option is incredibly comfortable, made of the softest knit fabric, and I’ve never met a piece of striped clothing that I didn’t love. This cutie also comes in navy and berry, but I’ve been on a total pink kick lately and opted for this soft blush option. I love the rolled up sleeves and the tie at the waist which makes this option more flattering. I went with my regular size (XS) and love the fit, however it may be a tad short for work. I would recommend sizing up for length. I plan on ordering the navy to wear with a green cargo jacket and sneakers or espadrilles to work (yes, I’ve already planned it out!).
