Favorite Wears: Perfect Summer Dress

perfect summer dress for work and weekend 

Summer brings a uniform made of a slew of dresses that I can wear easily to work, on the weekends and even roll and pack for travel.  This dress has been on repeat for all those reason. It's polished and conservative enough for work, but it's flowy and comfortable for weekends. And I plan to take it on my next trip, and now that I have a little bit of a suntan, I'm looking forward to not having my legs blend into the white checks (only downfall of this dress). ;)

And I just wanted to mention (not show!), I've still been wearing my new favorite bra and loving them.  I wrote (and showed!) about it here back in January, but if you have a bust that needs a little extra support or post-baby, I still - tried and tested now for 6 months - recommend Olga Intimates' Balconette bra.  It's so comfortable and smooth - you can't ever see it under even summer clothing.

If you have any favorite summer dresses (or bras!), please share - I'm all about more, more, more dresses.

Favorite Modest Swimsuits

cute and feminine modest swimsuits

Swimsuits are so much fun these days - and I never would have thought I'd ever say that, even back in the day when I was in way better swimsuit shape.  Their are SO many styles, prints, patterns, and with modest styles being the preferred (for sun-safety number one) and most in-style option of them all.  I love how swimsuits are now an extension of summer outfits, and some you can even easily wear as a top with the appropriate bottoms.

My long-time favorite one piece is this strapless and ruched number that comes in many colors and sizes (regular, long-torso, D and DD cup).

Love this strapless, ruche one-piece with a fun design and pattern (I can see it being a really cute top for pool/beach to happy hour wear).

This stripe with solid side one-piece comes in lots of different patterns, and I love the feminine and flirty cut with the sliming structure and patterns.

If it's stripe you're looking for, I love this stripe + mesh version that draws the eye up!

If you are moving into a one-piece from two-piece territory for the first time, you might try a cute cut-out one that is sort of the best of both worlds!

I love the bold colors and geo-design of this one piece suit - and have it in my cart right now (do I really need another suit?!?). I saw Rebecca from Mommy in Heels trying it on in her IG Stories and loved it right away.

A site I love for two-pieces (yes, TWO!) is Lime Rickie - they have high-waisted and cute peplum tops for a look that still covers you up!  
Even more suits I love can be found below!  Happy swimming...

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

A few weekends ago we went to our first baseball game of the season (as a family).  Luck would have it, it started raining top of the 2nd inning, and after a 2 hour delay packed with snacks and lunch to keep us all occupied, they started back up again for us only to make it through the 4th inning!  Regardless of the very little actual baseball we got to watch, the kids LOVED eating all the peanuts.  And Liam will take watching any amount of baseball that he can get. ;)
 Liam and I, and for a little bit, Nora, also wore matching baseball shoes that were gifted to us, which Liam got a big kick out of. Nora's were a tad big for her, so she'll be ready to wear them next year (I love that her size has velcro!).  Mine, which you can't see, were actually customized to be KC Royals with a little logo on the outside of the shoe - back by the heel.  They were really cute, and now my friends are all ready to borrow mine for their own games.
