THIS IS NOT A MOMENT, IT'S A MOVEMENT // A trip to the Anthropologie home office in Philadelphia, PA

If you’re new around here, you may not know that Anthropologie extended their sizing to include plus sizes last Spring. I was very impressed with my first fitting room experience (read about that here or watch it here). While I was there trying amazing clothing on that actually fit (tears!!) - one of the corporate team members was there and mentioned that the president of Anthropologie was actually behind APlus 100%.

TRAVEL // Highlands, NC - Toyota Camry: There for Life 

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (“Toyota”) provided me with compensation and use of a Camry for a short period of time. The opinions I have shared about this vehicle are my own.

It’s Summer. If you’re like me, you have big hopes and dreams every year for having the best summer ever. Hopes and dreams of traveling and making memories with our families, sure...but what about the stress that comes with traveling?! Forget about it. There shall be NO SUCH THING!! Right?! Wishful thinking…

But on top of these unattainable goals we give ourselves, we scroll our feeds and often see people we may or may not know on lavish family vacations, seemingly having the time of their lives. 


I've gotten a lot of questions about what I wore in New Orleans on our recent trip. Guess what?! It was actually just a swimsuit that I restyled as a bodysuit. Here is what was going through my head while trying to figure out what to wear:


Before we had a baby, we could go on 5 date nights a week. We could laugh as loud as we wanted to at night. We could sleep in on the weekends. We wouldn't worry about how much quality time we were getting with each other. Last week, my college roommate got married in Texas. My husband and I decided a while ago that we would just block this time off and drive, instead of flying. This drive would include a pit stop in New Orleans for a night.  



IT IS FINALLY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND and I could not be more excited for vacation! I'm sharing with you some of my favorite MUST HAVES for the beach! 


1. SEA ANGEL TANKINI - fits. amazing. and way cuter than any other prints I've seen in this style.

Regular sizes (L-XL) , Plus sizes (1X-3X)

2. QUAY sunglasses - in love with the shape and polarized lenses

3. ESCAPE beach bag - I use this for magazines and beach towels
