Ready for the Weekend and the Pool

Finally the weekend is almost here! Can’t wait to head to the pool to celebrate my son’s 7th birthday. I wore this swimsuit and hat last weekend and they were both perfect. I was so impressed with this Target swimsuit. It was very comfortable and flattering (if I do say so myself!)

I’m normally not a hat person, but I picked this one up from Amazon recently based on the great reviews and it worked out great! See even more details below (affiliate links)

Tropical Floral Print Swimsuit– Wearing size small. Has good coverage in the rear and not too high cut on the legs. Straps criss cross in the back and are adjustable.

Wide Brim Straw Hat– Such a steal! This hat is less than $16 plus another 5% off. It comes in tons of colors and has great features: it’s adjustable so I was able to play with the fit till I got a flattering look, has a wide brim that gave my face a lot of protection from the sun, and it’s packable so it’s easy to throw in your bag for the beach and pool or on your next vacation!

Scalloped Trim Cami @ J. Crew Factory

It’s rare you find a top that is so versatile and is made with great quality fabric and workmanship. Especially when it is also extremely affordable!

The J. Crew Scalloped Trim Cami is one of my favorite tops because it has a flattering fit, feminine details, and it looks great on it’s own or layered with a cardigan or jacket.

Additional features that make the price even more amazing are it is fully lined and has adjustable straps to provide the perfect fit. It fits tts. I wear a small or size 4 normally in woven shirts or woven dresses and in this top I’m wearing a size 4.

It’s now on sale for about $21! Prices are marked and then use the code 1DAYONLY for 20% off. I have it in turquoise and black but may need it in more colors at this price! (commission links).

Versatile Amazon Dress!

My latest Amazon purchase was a huge hit! (most of the time its 50/50) This Button Front Dress surprised me, as I was not sure if I was going to like it. First of all the buttons are faux. This is huge because it means you don’t have to worry about gaping, one of the reasons I have stayed away from this spring/summer trend. It is a midi length, which means it hits between the knee and mid calf. I happen to love this length! The last feature I am loving about this dress is that it is not too low cut. It actually hits pretty high on the chest, so makes it a great option to wear to work! Oh and I forgot the absolute best part!! It is $18.99! That’s right!! $18.99!! AND comes in 29 colors, stripes & prints! (I am wearing color 25-white)

Summer KidPik Life Saver!

For those of you who have been following us, you know my love for Kidpik for my daughter. For those who are new to Rockstar Moms, well you are in for a treat!

In an effort to help make our very busy Mom lives as easy as I can, Knowing that every season my Isabella will be receiving this box full of super fun fashion, shoes, and accessories is a life saver. I don’t always have the time to keep up with her growth spirts and who doesn’t love a good subscription box!?  The fun and suspense of seeing what’s inside!

When we found Kidpik, a subscription box for girls sizes 4-16, we just HAD to try it. We have been subscribing to Kidpik now for about 3 years and absolutely love it!  It is so much fun for her to open and know that if she loves the items she can keep them and if she does not, well then, they can be returned with no obligation to anything. Best part is the shipping is free and free for the returns too!

First, let’s start with how Kidpik works:

When you go to the Kidpik site you set up an account.  You will need to enter things, such as, address, credit card info, when you would like to receive your picks.  You can receive them as little as once per year or as often as 1 per month! Then your daughter will get to set up her profile (this is the fun part).  She will be able to control telling Kidpik what her favorite colors are, rank how “sparkly” she is, choose from pre-set outfits what she likes the best, and also what stores she likes to shop at.  This helps them choose the picks for her boxes that fit her style. She will need to update this profile for each season and you just need to remember to update her sizes as she grows!

It is very important to note that there is zero obligation to keep anything you receive in your box.  There are also no shipping fees to receive or return. You can keep everything, pick and choose what you want to keep , or send it all back!

In an average box you will receive on 7 items, that make about 4-5 outfits.  This may include dresses, skirts, pants, tops, shoes, accessories, and always a “Gift for you” that you can keep even if you send everything else back.

The box will arrive looking like this:

 

It will be addressed to your daughter.  It is sooooo exciting for Isabella when she comes home from school and sees this box at our door step!

When she opens the box everything is wrapped up beautifully and some items are in these amazing reusable drawstring bags (which I use when we travel for toiletries or shoes).

Isabella’s box came with a pair of cut off denim shorts, a T-shirt , 1 skirt, 1 dress, a bathing suit (Bella’s fab item), pair of ADORABLE sandals, a belt bag and her “gift” of a super secure LOVE bracelet or she choose to wear it as an anklet. In the past the “gift” has been patches, pins, hair ties, or even jewelry. Oh! Another super fun item that came in this box is this magazine! It is full of articles, games, puzzles, and beauty diy’s.

Her try on session! Needless to say she is keeping everything, again!!

Now for the details:

The price points for this box ranged from $9.99 for the Belt bag to $29.50 for the dress.  A very important note is that if you keep everything you get 30% off the total purchase, and this is for every box.  So to keep this entire box will be $102. We received 7 items so that is $14.57 per item, on average.

Another very important note is that if you do not want to keep all the items but, sometimes, it is less expensive to buy everything and get the 30% off.  You can donate the items you do not want to keep by paying for everything, sending back the item you do not want to keep in the pre-paid shipment bag and Kidpik will donate the items to girls in need in the community around them.

From what I have seen so far in the 3 years we have been receiving boxes is that this company delivers quality clothing at a great value and cares about the community around them.

Oh!! One more very important note is that the actual boxes are great to reuse for absolutely anything.  Isabella uses them to store her dolls, shopkins, play school supplies……the options are endless!😁

Loft Dress Sale

I was doing an inventory of my closet to see what else I needed for the warm weather and to capitalize on the great sales going on!

It quickly became obvious to me how much I rely on Loft for great quality dresses. Casual, dress-up, short, long, I have them all!

This season’s styles are no exception to offering great prints, colors and details that are right on trend and they are all 40-60% off! They also come in many different sizing options in regular, petite and plus sizes!

I stopped by my local loft to try on some great styles. Here are my favorite dresses and I even found a great jumpsuit for the summer…all fit tts. I am wearing a size Small or size 4 in all styles. The first picture, the stripe button down was the only style I maybe could have sized down 1 size in due to me being a little smaller in the bust area 🙂

All styles below are 40% with code CYBER except where noted at a deeper discount (commission links)

Last Short Try ON! American Eagle!!

The last stop on my “looking for shorts that look good on me” journey was #AExME. I really wanted to try their Midi Short that I have heard great things about. My local store only had one style of the Midi Short to try however….. But I will say that these are probably my favorite destructed short of all the denim shorts I tried. It was definitely worth finding!

Also, you all know how much I love that basic tee from a certain big box retailer, but this camo tee is a great not so basic style. The fit is super cute, the feel is SUPER soft, and the sleeve cuff detail is adorable!!

Shop both below! (commission links)
