Weekend 6.17 – The Mother Edit

Properly, we packed up and headed to the shore for a few weeks. We had been supposed to go away Friday, however since Mike and I had spent the week working as an alternative of packing/cleansing/laundry/and many others. we each determined that it could be higher to go away Saturday “morning.”


Now we have this…canine.

I’m, I imply we simply…

Guys, I don’t even know what occurred. However packing up with the Nieve pet floofing round was Leaving Problem Degree 10. It was like we had been again within the snowsuit and carseat days with toddlers and newborns. Besides now we’ve been out of shape for a decade, so Mike and I had been mainly rookies, additional hampered by, “My Shorts Aren’t The place You Mentioned They’d Be” Raines and “I Can’t Discover My Footwear From The Mendacity Down Place on the Sofa” Pax.

Good grief.

The automobile was packed a number of occasions over. After which unpacked once we realized – oh! Canine stuff! A large canine crate was flattened, after which loaded in, diagonally. There was some try at stuffing every little thing else round it. This didn’t go nicely. There could have been tears. There was undoubtedly yelling. A large canine crate was then left behind.

We left at 6pm, Guys. And nonetheless needed to cease at Petco or PetSmart or regardless of the hell for one more massive (however – crucially – not “large”) crate, as a result of if there’s ONE rookie mistake we’re NOT making…it’s going anyplace with Dangerous Gal NiNi and no crate.

Additionally, for enjoyable, right here’s the Nieve herself, serving to Mike drive.

And sure, she’s buckled in, it’s simply that her “seatbelt” wanted to be shortened.

Nbd, simply one other 20 minute delay.


How cute is that this costume? I’m all the time on the hunt for summer time clothes created from 100% cotton and/or linen, and this Lucky Brand dress appears like one thing from La Ligne. Ooooo…additionally out there in stripe.

Hey, Sailor. For one thing completely different, I’ve been swapping my ordinary distressed denim cut-offs for FRAME’s denim sailor shorts. They’re ridiculously snug and the very best mixture of flirty and stylish. I love them. For a decrease price possibility, LOFT makes a pair which might be related, as does GAP (click on over to ‘darkish indigo’ to see the proper pair of shorts – they’re cataloged very unusual on-line). Anyway, I extremely suggest when you’re in search of just a little one thing completely different.

I suppose waterproof jewellery is a factor now? Whereas strong gold is all the time a secure guess to verify your jewellery by no means tarnishes or rusts in water (salt or chlorine included), some firms are actually masking stainless steal with gold plating as an reasonably priced – but nonetheless waterproof – different. It appears like Hey Harper was one of many first manufacturers to start out this development, and their Easygoing set of two different gold necklaces is verrry Wealthy Lady At The Seaside, or this pair of huggie hoops is ideal for on a regular basis.

My summer time sneaker. I simply picked up a pair of Adidas Gazelles in navy, and…they’re freaking excellent. The navy is sort of denim-esque in particular person, and so they look simply pretty much as good with cut-off shorts as they do with little white clothes (particularly this one).

Whilst you’re there…I simply picked up this sweatshirt within the sunny yellow colour. I’ve been carrying my black one mainly each day, however thought a reasonably colour can be a pleasant replace for summer time. Seems? I LOVE IT. As soon as once more, this little sweatshirt appears cute with cut-offs and feels precisely proper for cooler summer time mornings on the shore.

Shore issues. I’m fairly positive I would like this sexy Boden swimsuit (inexperienced or yellow, tho??). And gosh, Boden is on fireplace – right here’s an ideal pair of flat, tan sandals (once more, just a little horny), and a bra-friendly tank that doesn’t learn mumsy. WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Simply the highest half. I didn’t notice that my favorite dress (see it on, here) can also be out there as a top. On sale, too.

Anybody headed to London this summer time? Convey this raincoat. Severely cool design particulars, nice colours, excessive efficiency.

Outfit inspo of the week: These matching sets that look like PJs however aren’t PJs. Are we into them? I’ll admit that they’d be freaking excellent on the shore. And gahhh…the plus size version appears actually good, too.

If I labored in an workplace…I’d recreate this simple, sporty workplace look of black trousers + slouchy stripes. As an alternative of sleeveless, I’d go for a 100% cotton collared pullover to retain that workplace vibe. One thing like Ref’s Cotton Polo Sweater or – oooo – Alex Mill’s short sleeve striped polo sweater. That final one is very candy and can be a cool offset to black trousers.

High plus measurement choose: This dress actually made my jaw drop. The silhouette is gorgeous, and the print is vaguely 70’s wallpaper, in the easiest method. Feels actually on level for summer time.

For the fellows. Nordstrom is now carrying Buck Mason’s curved hem tees. These are Mike’s favorites, as a result of they’re mushy, sturdy, and look good un-tucked.

Shit. I forgot about Father’s Day. In truth, Mike gained’t care, however I’ll pull collectively some espresso & pastries for the morning of, and inform him a Vuori order is on its method. Each he and Raines love these boardshorts, and I’ve been ready for this hoodie to get re-stocked (actually the one zip hoodie that doesn’t learn schlumpy on guys), and these joggers (possibly in ‘cocoa’), which appear to virtually vibe like…costume pants?

Actually white enamel. Whereas I’ve all the time been impressed with Crest’s 3D-White toothpaste (I’ve used it for years), I not too long ago picked up considered one of these Oral-B toothbrushes with charcoal-infused bristles and whoa: after solely a few makes use of, I’ve already seen a fairly large distinction. Which implies I’ll by no means want to make use of these Crest white strips again (ugh – I hate these issues).

Glad Juneteenth. This guest essay in the NYT is a deeply private account of Juneteenth, and is an ideal piece to twist up with a cup of espresso and browse.

Get pleasure from your weekend, everybody.
