Mommy and me style: How to wear stripes

With Summer in full swing here in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I mean FULL SWING 100 degrees temperatures here, every weekend I try and plan a little fun family activity for the kids! Whether it’s just exploring a new area in town or hitting up a local carnival, there’s TONS to do here and I just wanted to share my top 5 favorites!

But first, Vivian and I are both wearing our summer stripes in this casual outfit. Yes, to me, maxi dresses are the ultimate casual but dressy look. I own way too many but I can’t get enough. It’s like shoes. This striped one is from Shabby Apple and I think it’s all sorts of amazing. It runs a little long and big, so I would size down if you are interested in getting it! Also, Vivian’s little top and striped shorts set is from Wildly Co, a brand that has lots of great basics for kids. And her adorable shoes are from Adelisa & Co. One look at their shoes and you will want ALL OF THEM, I swear. They are just darling!

Now on to the list!

Can you guys believe that the year is almost half over!? I swear just yesterday we were shopping for Christmas gifts and now it’s already 4th of July soon! This is one of my FAVE weekends of the year because it’s Marvin’s birthday weekend, the weather is generally super nice, and well we get a…

This post is written in partnership with World Market, all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I’ve seriously been on a Boho fashion kick lately with my outfits. Maybe it’s the eclectic, unique and mostly colorful style, or maybe because most things are loose and breezy, but whatever it is, I could wear a breezy…

 One of my favorite things about going into an office each day, is trying to dress myself stylish yet cute for the workplace. We don’t have to wear business suits or professional wear, but business casual is our dress code and it can be rather fun to try and achieve. To me, is means no…

Not going to lie, this shoot was taking awhile ago when the blossoms were still blooming in Spring, but I totally forgot to post it. But it was such a gorgeous set and a fun place for Vivian to run around at the Provo Orchards that I had to share it.  :) Vivian even got…

I seriously can’t believe that my baby is slowly growing out of baby clothes and moving on to girl clothes, we are slowly removing the bottle from daily feedings, and the fact that she is talking up a storm now (even if we can’t understand half of the things she says) is so crazy. We…

I’m sharing #WholeBlends in my life as part of a Garnier sponsored series for Socialstars™. With the heat of Summer in full force right now, so comes the unmanageable frizzy flyaway hairs. Frizz is mostly caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, but humidity can also contribute to it. The dry or damaged hair can swell…

By now you guys all know that I love supporting small shops and handmade brands, right? I mean, I used to be an Etsy seller myself, back in the day… so I really have a soft spot for supporting these types of brands. I know all the hard work it goes into owning a small…

This post is sponsored by Kidbox, but all opinions expressed are 100% my own. Ever since I had my baby girl Vivian, my wallet has honestly dwindled for buying her clothes, shoes and accessories. My 4 year old son, on the other hand, hasn’t really minded what I put him in, although lately he has…

I partnered with JTV for this post and received free jewelry for me and one to giveaway. Traditionally, when you think of wearing pearls, you think of wearing them for weddings, special occasions, etc. At least that’s how I what I had associated pearls with as my first set was given to me by my…

So I just needed to give a shout out to Joyfolie, because the fact that they make these Mommy and me matching gladiator sandals… is seriously amazing. I am obsessed with twinning with my mini me – you knew that, but these shoes are SO good! I love that they are adjustable to fit your…

 So this is not quite a red, white and blue patriotic look, but my babe and I are twinning by wearing shades of blue! I have seriously been wearing by red Swedish Hasbeen clogs almost every other day, they are the most comfortable things ever, and the red is so fun! It’s the perfect look…

In 1966, my dad started out his pursuit in finding the American Dream by flying from Taipei to San Francisco and taking the Greyhound bus to Mississippi (took 5 days) to get his Graduate degree in Agricultural Engineering for 2 years. Then he went to West Virginia for 4 months and started looking for jobs…
