White Embroidered Kimono

White Lace Kimono

Do you own a kimono?  If you answered no, I highly suggest that you add one to your wardrobe asap, because they are perfect for all of your summer outfits! Not only do they complete an outfit, but they can even make denim shorts and a white tee look chic.  This white embroidered kimono is from Chicwish, and one I've been wearing with everything!  I love how the embroidered detailing adds a feminine feel, while the bell sleeves give off a boho vibe.  I kept my outfit simple by pairing the kimono with denim shorts and a white tank, but I love that it can also be worn with dresses, or as a bathing suit cover up. 

Head over to my Instagram Stories today to this kimono style a few different ways!

Summer Boho Dress

With Memorial Day right around the corner (seriously though, can you believe the unofficial start to summer is this weekend?), it's time to start organizing your summer wardrobe, and for me, that means stocking up on dresses and shorts.  One of my go-to places for finding affordable and trendy summer pieces is Shein.  I love their selection of the seasons must-have items, and the prices won't break the bank!  I recently added this embroidered smock dress to my wardrobe, and can't wait to were it this Memorial weekend.  The wider cut and embroidered detailing gives off a boho feel that I love for summer.  Although the long sleeves can be hot on a humid summer day, it's perfect for a cooler summer night, or as a swim cover up for a late day boat ride.  Since this dress is on the shorter side for my 5'7" frame, I threw on a pair of denim shorts underneath, so that way if I bent over or the wind blew, nothing would be exposed!  I love that you cant even tell I have anything on underneath!

Did I mention that this dress is under $20?? Plus, take an extra 15% off your purchase with the coupon code 2forthomas15.  Valid until June 30th.

The Perfect Summer Cardigan

Summer Cardigan

Spring has finally arrived here in New England, which means it's time put away the winter jackets, and pull out the sundresses!  Since it's not quite warm enough to run out the door sans sleeves, little sweaters and lightweight jackets have become a staple in my wardrobe, and this wrap knit cardigan is the perfect addition.  Not only is the lightweight material ideal for a spring day, but I love the eyelet detailing and wrap style.  It adds a feminine touch to my jeans and tank, plus it's a great sweater for throwing over sleeveless dresses.  Although I'm loving the crispness of the white, it also comes in a beautiful mint color.

Last Minute Mother's Day Gift Guide

*This post contains affiliate links.
Amazon gift guide for women

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11

Mother's Day is this Sunday!  Anyone else a last minute shopper and still have gifts to buy? All I can say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime! If you're in same the boat as I am, don't worry, I've got you covered.  I've rounded up some cute gift ideas for that special lady in your life, plus they can all be delivered in two days!

1. Bath Bombs.  When I think of Mother's Day, I think of pampering that special woman, and nothing screams pampering more than a relaxing bath.  Not only are these bath bombs beautiful, but they're 100% natural and have gotten a ton of great reviews!

2. Initial Necklace.  As a mom, I love wearing my kids initials or names around my neck!  These make the perfect gift as they're sentimental and have a personal touch.  Plus, they layer perfectly with other necklaces.

3. Drop Earrings.  Not only are statement earrings on trend this season, but they're perfect for summer since many women love wearing their hair up on a hot day.  These earrings are great for all ages, and come in a variety of shapes and colors, 40 colors to be exact!  

4. Bathrobe.  Anyone else love cozying up in a bathrobe after a long day?  Summer and winter, it's the first thing that I put on in the morning to drink my coffee, and the last thing I wear before bed, to drink my wine! This one looks ultra plush, and comes in a variety of colors.

5. Rose Quartz Roller.  I haven't tried using a jade or rose quartz roller yet, but I've heard great things about them, and will be getting this one for myself.  They are said to help with circulation, decrease puffiness and dark circles, and help lift the face. This one has great reviews, as does this option here.

6. Succulents.  I love this succulent collection! They make a great alternative to flowers, yet still add a little cheer to any room.

7. Travel Coffee Mug.  I don't know about you, but I'm always running out the door with coffee and kids in tow.  I'm sure most moms with school age children can relate!  This travel mug is super cute, and comes in a few colors/phrases.

8. Rattan Bag.  Every woman loves a new bag, and this one is perfect for summer! It also comes in a white which is super cute!

9. Floral Scarf.  Scarfs have always been one of my go-to items for giving.  Almost every woman wears them, and you can never go wrong in size.  I'm loving the colors and floral print of this one for summer.  It can be worn around the neck, as a hair accessory, and as a swim cover up!  Plus it's also available in 12 other colors!

10. Silk Pillow Case.  Do you sleep with a silk pillowcase yet? Not only do they help prevent wrinkles, but also help to keep your hair smooth, and not tangled at night.  I love these ones as they are affordable, yet feel super luxurious! They're also available in multiple colors.

11. Sunglasses.  In my opinion, a woman can never have too many pairs of sunglasses, and with summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time for a new pair!  I recently added this pair to my wardrobe and love them.  They also come with other lens colors and in a tortoiseshell frame.

And if these ideas don't work, you can never go wrong with a gift card to her favorite store, flowers, or a framed photo of her kids/grandkids!

Black Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit
*This post contains affiliate links.

Hi friends!  Anyone else loving jumpsuits as much as I am this season?  I'm so happy that they're in style, not only because they are fun to wear, but I love that you don't have to put any effort into getting dressed when wearing one.  You just jump into it, and are ready to head out the door!

I recently added this black number to my wardrobe and have been wearing it non-stop.  I love that it can be worn both on the shoulders, or off, and the cotton/polyester blend gives it a cozy feel.  The best part is the price.  It's under $25!!  It's perfect to throw on for a casual Sunday afternoon, or dress it up with heels for drinks with the girls.

Note:  Although I find this jumpsuit comfortable, I was hoping it would be a tad bit softer.  For the price though, I think it's a great purchase, and it is soft enough that I've been wearing it constantly. Also, because of my larger chest, I don't love how the material falls when I pull it off one shoulder.  I'm thinking if I sized up, it would fall better.  I am wearing a size small.

Little Mint Dress

Perfect Summer Dress
*This post contains sponsored content and affiliate links.

Each summer, I make sure to have one dress hanging in my closet that I know will be perfect for all of the events I'll be attending. Although I may not wear it to every occasion, it gives me a peace of mind knowing that I have a great option, or backup dress if needed.  This cold shoulder mint dress is one I recently added to my wardrobe, and will be this year's summer staple.  I got it right before my trip to the Dominican Republic, and couldn't have found a better dress to bring along.  I paired it with heels and fun fringe earrings for our last night at the resort.  Not only is it the perfect dress for a date night or grabbing cocktails, but it also makes a great wedding guest option.  In fact, I have a wedding to attend this summer in Maine, and thinking this will be the dress that I'll wear!  It would also be a cute option for a bridal or baby shower.  I can also see myself wearing it with a pair of flat sandals and a denim jacket for a daytime look.

The funny thing about these photos, in typical Rachael fashion, is that I'm wearing it the wrong way! It's suppose to be a cold shoulder style!  Remember when I did that same thing with my cold shoulder red dress here?  I was in a rush to get ready for the night, and when I realized I forgot to put my arms through the ruffles, I didn't bother to fix it, because I actually liked how the dress looked the way I had it styled.  That makes me love the dress even more, because you can wear it two ways!  I'm loving the mint color for the summer, but it's also available in a light pink, and under $60.
