Striped Off the Shoulder Top

Striped Off-the-Shoulder Top

Hi, friends! Hope your week is off to a great start. We’re heading to Michigan on Friday for a wedding this weekend so I’m trying to make the most of a shorter week.

In other news, my sister and I celebrated our 28th birthday this weekend (can’t believe we’re getting so close to 30). We had a really fun game night on Friday, met our friends for a drink and went out to dinner with our family on Saturday, and I finally got outside for a long walk and caught up on some reading on Sunday.

After a long week at the office looking at a computer screen each day, I tend to need a break. Anyone else?

This was another outfit I packed for our trip to Georgia and never had a chance to wear. I raved about this white pair of denim earlier in the month, and I love this top just as much. It’s comfortable, lightweight and has the cutest tie details on the sleeves. It looks great with shorts and pants, and I’ll probably try it with a printed skirt. LOFT now offers the top in a floral print, too! As much as I love all of the one-shoulder tops, every time I try them on, I hate the fit and opt for an off-the-shoulder top or dress instead.

My favorite new accessory is the circle bag. The Madewell Marfa crossbody bag is a great neutral color that works with just about every outfit. I also snagged the Clare V Alice bag during the Shopbop sale (seen here), and can’t wait to wear it throughout the summer.

  • Sending a virtual cheers to any other parents that had a 5:30 a.m. wake up call this morning ☕️ Not going to lie though, we’ve gotten so much done before 9:30 a.m. including a quiet walk around our neighborhood.
  • 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 ❤️
