It was so fun to have a fun Mitsubishi Outlander to tour Palm Beach. It was the perfect car for my girlfriends and I! Roomy for all our luggage (READ: ALLLLL our luggage) to and from the airport, it fit cases of sparkling water and pool floats from Target, and helped us get Starbucks in the mornings and afternoons.
It was so nice to escape cold temps by heading down to West Palm Beach for a getaway and bachelorette party. The whole weekend was filled with 80 degree temps, sun, poolside cocktails and catching up. Paradise? Yes.
We also drove to the beach and took a glorious walk along the shore. The word glorious makes me laugh, but that is exactly what it was – good girlfriends, walking in the sand with the warm, salty air, in the sun, talking about everything. I was able to pick up some seashells for my kiddos, and we talked about everything from motherhood to marriage to when our next trip would be. We took a short detour down Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, which was beautiful. Lots of high end shopping, gorgeous hotels, and cute restaurants.
My favorite part about the Outlander was how it is compact in feel but so roomy on the inside. It was easy to park, and handled better than most SUVs. The interior was so comfortable and I love the black trim on this model. Plus, it was fun to drive a red car.
If you are planning a weekend getaway, West Palm Beach should be on your list. Most days are sunny and warm, there is a great scene downtown, the hotels are stunning, and the beaches are gorgeous. It’s the perfect place to get some sun and relaxation.
I know it’s been a minute since I’ve posted – but I had to pop on to tell you about this star sweater I am L-O-V-I-N-G. It had me at stars. Anyone else obsessed with stars, the moon, the universe in general? The cosmos are hot right now, like the sun, HOT.
It’s not technically the last minute, but pretty darn close. I’m here to help if you need a few last minute things for your husband, dad, brother, son, boyfriend, the list goes on – there are a lot of special guys out there and you want to surprise them with something they’ll love and something they’ll use!
For the techy: Bluetooth Beanie – I have one, and love it. No getting tangled in earbud wires, and they are super easy to set up and pair to your device. you just put on the hat, turn on a podcast or playlist from your phone or music device and go! This is the perfect gift for the dog walker, outdoor runner, hiker, and guy who walks to school or work.
I love a cute little dress with some over the knee boots, and this button front jumper is the perfect short length to show off my favorite pair. It’s a corduroy material with the cutest button detail, and has a great not too snug fit. See below for a coupon code!
I mean…can you even with this? A girls teddy coat is just way too adorable. Super snuggly, well-made, and the perfect neutral, this coat is wearable with casual and dressy style. Think coat for a day out with mom, for Sunday mornings, for a family photo shoot, and a coat because “I don’t want to wear my ski jacket everywhere, I want to be fashionable.”Read More
One of my favorite things to do is visit cute downtown villages in Michigan. They have old school charm, friendly people, and unique small shops. Downtown Lake Orion was so fun to explore on a Sunday date. It’s a quaint spot that reminds me of Northern Michigan without the 4/5 hour drive.Read More
‘Tis the season to party, and we love using HoneyBaked ham to make our get togethers fun and easy! We hosted a friendsgiving fiesta with kids, and everyone (dogs included) loved the food and decorations. There were bright colors, delicious food, and lots of smiles all around.Read More
Between running my kids to all sorts of activities, walking dogs and doing yoga once a week, I know what good work out gear should feel like. I recently found the Reebok Puremove Sports Bra, and it’s an essential. I love the fabric, the cooling technology and the way it moves with you – yes it moves with you and can tell what your body is doing!Read More
I know, I know. Another jumpsuit – but I wouldn’t share something not worth sharing, ladies. And it’s under $50! Comfortable, borderline pajama-ish, but totally legit for daytime, this super soft gray jumpsuit has me all giddy. From the off the shoulder optionality to wide leg pants, it really couldn’t get any cuter for running errands to meeting up with friends to lounging on the couch (what’s that like?).
The gray marl is cozy, but lightweight. Just add a soft sweater on chillier days. It has pockets which are always applauded in my opinion, and the drop waist is forgiving. Read, you can wear this to brunch, have your pancakes and split that omelet, too.
There aren’t a lot of sizes left, so I would rush to order if you are even contemplating. It runs big – I recommend sizing down. I’m on the tall side, and it’s on the verge of being too short but I can get away with it wearing flip flops are converse sneakers.
