Happy Friday friends!  I'm currently in Oklahoma for a SeneGence conference, so I'll keep this post short and to the point.  Which is, this dress is amazing!  If you've been on the hunt for a comfy dress that can take you from the playground to lunch with the girls, then you need this dress!  Not only is the sweatshirt material beyond cozy, but I love the lace up detail, and the fact that this dress is mom friendly.  I decided to keep it super casual by pairing it with a denim jacket and sneakers.  My jacket is a couple of year old from Forever 21, but I did link the updated version, along with other denim jackets that I'm loving, below.  I finished my look with my Nickel & Suede earrings, which if you have been following me for some time, you know I'm a huge fan, and my new Foley & Corinna backpack.

Alright friends, I have a newfound love, and it's this top!  When I was browsing the Mint Julep website, I saw this tunic and thought it would be a perfect addition to my summer wardrobe.  Little did I know how soft it was going to be!  Seriously, it's like wearing a thin blanket.  I love how it can be worn both off the shoulder, or as a boat neck top, and you can bet it will be a staple in my closet this spring and summer.  I decided to pair it with my white jeans and these adorable ruffled wedges, for an easy neutral look.  I have to say these wedges are also super comfortable, and look great with both jeans and dresses.  Just a note that they do run on the narrow side.

If you're looking for cute spring clothing, make sure to check out Mink Julep.  There is so much on my wish list, and I'm loving the price point.  Also, if you sign up to receive Mint Julep emails,  you get $10 off your first purchase!

The Perfect Shirt + Link Up

Striped Button Down Shirt #springtops
*This post contains affiliate links

Happy Friday friends!  This week has been a long one, so I'm more than happy that the weekend is here.  If you follow me on Insta Stories, then you may have seen that I was a little stressed about an upcoming trip.  I have a conference in Oklahoma at the end of the month, and although I am super excited for it, I realized that had the WRONG dates for the conference, and scheduled my trip a week early!  Talk about #mombrain.  All is well now, but lets just say changing everything two weeks before the trip was a little stressful.

On another note, today I'm sharing the perfect shirt.  Not only is it actually called the perfect shirt, but it truly lives up to its name.  I love the classic button down fit, and the material is light weight, making ideal for the spring and summer.  I wore it here with my favorite high rise button front jeans (seriously obsessed) and open toe booties (under $35), but I can't wait to style it for the summer.  It will look great paired with denim shorts, or thrown over a tee shirt dress as a warm layer (because you all know that I'm always cold).  I can also see myself wearing it over a bathing suit when I'm out on the boat.  Not a fan of the red stripe?  It's available in six different colors, including a gingham print.  Although the shirt runs true to size, I sized up to a medium for a slightly oversized look.

Have you taken advantage of the Shopbop sale?  There are only two days left, as it ends on the 14th.  You can shop all of my top picks here.

Even though spring hasn't arrived here in New England (seriously though), it's not stopping me from switching over my closet for the warm season, and adding some new spring styles to my wardrobe.  Now is the perfect time to stock up on some new spring/summer clothing as Shopbop is having their Event of the Season Sale!  What I love about this sale, is that almost everything is included, and you get 20% off no matter what you spend, no minimum requirements.  Spend under $500 and get 20% off your order, and spend over $500 and get $25% off with the code EVENT18.  I've listed all of my tops picks below, including my all time favorite denim shorts and the bag I'm currently lusting after.  Most things that I listed are on the budget friendly side, but if you have a higher price item on your wish list, then now is the time to purchase!

The Perfect Summer Tan + Link Up

Aglow Airbrush Tanning #airbrushtanning

Notice anything different about me in these photos?  I'm tan!  You guys, I have not been tan in almost five years, which if you have been following this blog for a while, then you know!  Between pregnancy, babies, and a couple of skin scares, lets just say that the sun has not been my friend.  Although I've tried a few sunless tanners in the past, I'm really too lazy to use them regularly, so I never achieve my desired color.  So when AGLOW, a local airbrush tanning studio,  reached out to me to try their airbrush tan, I had to give it a try.  Lets just say, I'm obsessed!  Not only was the tanning process easy, but I had the perfect color within minutes.  What I love even more, is that AGLOW's products are all natural, and free of any gluten, nuts, soy, alcohol, oil, and parabens.

The morning before my airbrush tan, I made sure to exfoliate in the shower, and that's all I had to do for prep.  The entire airbrush process only lasted 15 minutes (in and out the door), and before I left the studio, I already had the perfect glow.  You want to wear loose clothing after (preferably in dark colors) while your tan develops.  Then you go about your day.  You can't shower or sweat for 8 hours after your tan, so you want to make sure that you don't have any big plans within that time, as you will feel a little greasy.  However, if you can't wait the 8 hours, AGLOW offers an accelerated rapid tan, where you're able to shower in just 2 to 3 hours after!

The part I was most impressed with, is how long my tan lasted.  It was the third day when my tan began to fade, but the process was slow and gradual.  I still had tan lines after a week, and when I saw  my sister almost two weeks after, she commented on how great my color looked!  AGLOW gave me some great tips for making my tan last, some which included using a sharp razor when shaving, no exfoliating, making sure to moisturize right out of the shower (dry skin can make the tan flake off), and using their tan extender a couple of times during the week.
I have a feeling that I'll be a regular at AGLOW this summer, and if you live in the Boston area make sure to check them out.  They have locations in Bedford and Acton.  Also, mention my name when you book an appointment, and get 20% off your first airbrush tan!
