Gingham and Stripe Top

J.Crew Gingham and Stripe TopThis J.Crew gingham and stripe top combines two of my favorite prints so the first time I saw it online, I instantly added it to my cart. I can’t wait to wear it with white denim, a floral skirt or jean shorts this summer.

This coat is from Zara from a few years ago. I tend to gravitate towards neutrals so I’ve been slowly but surely trying to add more color to my wardrobe, especially with my outerwear. They have a newer version with fun sleeves, and if you’re looking for another fun color and/or print, I love this new style too.

Things you can’t tell from this photo – I was wearing two different earrings all day. I obviously need to slow down in the morning because in addition to different earrings, I’ve gone to work more than once with something backwards or inside out.

I’m feeling refreshed after a much needed weekend at home without too many plans. I got lunch with one of my best girlfriends, had a big family dinner with both of our families (we ended the night with Codenames – if you’re looking for a new game for game night, we love it!), made it to spin class and ended the weekend with a much needed trip to the spa to use some gift cards from the holidays.

If you love gingham as much as I do, Banana Republic has quite the selection right now, and I’ve included a few more tops and a cute clutch below.

And if you love sales, the LOFT and Old Navy sales were extended through tonight. You can shop my picks here (at the bottom of the post!).

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
