Favorite Tops From AE

AE is a gold mine for finding knit tops that are soft, have nice and easy fits, and fabrics that wash well.

Two of my favorites this season are the beach fleece and Aerie real soft v-neck tee shirts. They are perfect for the weekends when I want to be comfortable while still looking cute!

The beach fleece is sold out in my navy stripe but still comes in a red stripe and tons of solid colors. I think I might pick up an extra one! I found this top to fit a little big. I wanted it to have the slouchy and casual look but not too over-sized. I sized down one size to an XS and found the look I wanted.

The real soft v-neck tee is sold out in my pink, but still comes in 6 beautiful colors. This tops fits tts. I am wearing a small. It’s the perfect blend of being a little roomy, while not being too over-sized that it looks sloppy. Aerie also introduced a similar style called the distressed v-neck boyfriend tee. The fabric and fit look similar to my tee, and it comes in different shades of pinks, plum, green called royal palm, and a grey.

Swimwear Steals @J. Crew Factory

It’s that time of year again….swimsuit season! I both love and hate this time of year. I love being outside and enjoying the nice weather and going to the pool and beach with the kiddos. But I also loathe having to be in a swimsuit for hours on end.

After some searching, and lots of try on sessions, I think I have found my go-to swim brand- J. Crew Factory! There are so many great things to love about their suits- great prices, good quality fabrics, stylish details and prints, and they fit me great!

I also love that the swimsuits have good coverage in the back 🙂 I need to be able to run around after the kids and I feel super comfortable in these suits. They don’t ride up and I feel like I’m adequately covered while still looking great! In my opinion, they run tts. I’m wearing a size small in all 3 suits.

Check out my new 3 suits below:

Styles photographed left to right (commission links):

Navy Ruffle One-Shoulder Swimsuit

Tie-Front Navy and White Gingham Swimsuit

Scalloped Neckline Swimsuit– black is sold out, but the style is still available in Sweet Hibiscus Pink!

Target Find Friday: Swimwear for the kids- at a great value

Four weeks till we are poolside for the first time this season! My kids are ready with their new swimwear, are yours? Of course Target came through with another win! I can’t rave enough about their swimsuits. They are my go-to each year.

The fit is great. They offer different silhouettes for girls which helps when different cuts will fit my daughter better than others. My son is on the tall and skinny side and the board shorts stay up great even when he’s jumping off the diving board.

Quality and value is top notch. I wash them in garment bags in the washer and air dry. They hold up all season. The kids out grow them before the suits start to look too worn. 

I highly recommend that you head on over to Target.com and stock up for the summer. Many styles are on sale! So the kids will look adorable and you’ll know you got a great value!

Here are their favorite looks from last summer and their picks for this year:

Violette and Mason last summer at the beach

Top picks for Violette this year

Bought this one again this year with a matching cover-up and they came out with a 2nd print option. So adorable!

Violette trying out the new print

Also tried two new silhouettes with another cute cover-up

Pretending she’s playing at the beach 🙂

Modeling some of their favorite looks together!

Top picks for Mason this year (he loved all the bright colors and animal themes)

And they came back with his favorite from last year so I picked up the next size.

Dive in and enjoy the warm weather!

Easter and Passover are almost here. So in the Northeast that means it will be spring break time! Last year we were lucky enough to spend spring break in Florida with family. But this year we will be on a staycation! But that doesn’t mean I can’t dream about flying somewhere warm, preferably near a beach. I put together my fake packing list. And if you are heading on vacation, hopefully it will give you some outfit inspiration!

You will look so stylish by the pool or at the beach in these looks from Target or J.Crew. Since having 2 kids, I’m not very confident in a bikini. Plus, I have to be able to run around after them and I need to make sure my swimsuit will stay in place! These styles do the job but still make me feel young and trendy.

Safe travels!
