Those perfect white summer kicks

I don't think that there is any shoe better this time of year than a fresh pair of white kicks. I actually bought the girls and I, all the same ones. I was trying to think what would be a shoe that we would all wear ALL the time and go with pretty much any look? Yep the white sneaker it is! I love how white these ones are, they are so simple so you can wear them over and over again without getting sick of them too! Check out the links below to my whole look...

Favorite spring bags

Today I am sharing my favorite spring bags and you might be surprised to not see a single designer  bag among them. Lately for spring/summer I am ALL about easy breezy, woven, wooden, and crochet bags. They really do represent all the feels this time of year, just laid back and at the same time still terribly interesting and chic!

Girls in gingham

I CANNOT believe today is the LAST day of April! And if you remember back when I said my new years resolutions... well I wanted to do at least four posts a month! I was ONE post short last month so I am NOT going to fail this month! lol

For today's post I am showing a truly classic spring/summer print on me and my girls. You can truly not go wrong with these dresses and skirt. They are so flattering and the ties in the front give them interest and volume.

Brunching with the family, and how I keep us all "matching"

When the weather turns nice, we tend to do a lot more "brunching". Which just so happens to be one of my favorite things to do! I mean who doesn't like to go to cute places, sit around and be served the most important meal of the day?! 

So for this blog post I wanted to share my secret for keeping us all "matching". Does this sound unusual for a family of six to be coordinating on a regular basis?! lol probably! But I love it. I love being a "polished" bunch just as much as I love wearing a "polished" outfit myself. Like I heard one time, "dressing well is a form of good manners". And I plan on having my family very well mannered! 

So my big trick on keeping us all in sync? Simple! I only buy clothes of a certain color scheme! I have my fav colors and I stick to them and viola we always match! The colors I love for our family are, pink(duh), white, grey, blue, and tan. Turns out all these colors work really well together so we always end up looking like we intentionally dressed that way (which in a way we did) Do they have to be those colors? Of course not! Choose any colors you like but try choosing colors that all work well together and you'll end up looking like you walked off a styled shoot! 

We seriously get stopped all the time by people complimenting us and I am so proud! I think in a way dressing well has gone away a bit, and I am totally up for inspiring people to bring it back! Links for our looks below!

My new favorite self tanner!

I am so excited to share my new favorite sunless tanner with you! I love that it's made with only natural ingredients and it's soo effective! I am pictured down below with only one application! 

How I apply:
After I take a shower I apply this self tanning lotion all over my body with a tanning mitt. I try to be sparing on areas that have looser skin, i.e. elbows, and knees. Then I let dry WHILE I blow dry my hair (sans clothes). After I am done with drying my hair I apply a regular lotion over the top of my tanner (I find this makes the lotion more blended and streak free) and then I get dressed. That's it! Your skin gradually becomes darker throughout the day and turns to this beautiful golden tan! I usually apply once a week and this keeps me that golden tan, which is especially nice this time of year!
