I teamed up with Target today to share two of my favorite swimwear trends, tips on how to take those looks from day to night, AND a few tips on selecting swimwear that flatters your body. Woot!
So here’s one thing I’ve learned: as a mama, you need friends. Boy do you need friends. You need friends to get you out of your house. You need friends to keep you sane. You need friends to have adult conversations with. You need friends to motivate you to keep getting dressed instead of living in yoga pants all day urrrrryday. Anyone feel me? Today I teamed up with Old Navy and one of my best blogging gal pals, LaTisha from The Girl in the Yellow Dress (who I absolutely adore and who you will as well) to go on a little play date with our kids. After all, it’s summer! And summer should equal play dates. I’m gonna be honest though you guys – when your kids are little and you’re combining them with someone else’s littles, the whole thing can turn into a crap-show reeeeeal fast. For that reason, I wanted to share with you my top tips for having a successful play date!

Fathers Day is SUNDAY peeps! Did that creep up on anybody else (hand raised)? Husband works in the city (San Francisco), which is about 30-45 minutes away from where we live. At least two nights a week he works late and doesn’t get home until after the kids are in bed – which we haaaaate hate hate with a fiery passion. So this year as part of our Fathers Day celebration, we decided to head into the city to spend some time with Daddy on his lunch break! Oh, and in case you’re wondering – heck yes we definitely all wore Crocs for this little get together. Crocs you guys! We’re at it again with Crocs. We just can’t help ourselves…

Oh hi guys. Just an outfit here. I got nothin’ tonight. Nothin’. I’m just real real tired, and real real excited to go to bed. Know what I mean? Mom life. Newborn life.Messy house life. Working life. Blogging life. Etc. etc. Y’all know what I’m talking about.
The one thing I will say in reference to this outfit is that in all honesty, I just really love me some Chicwish. I really, really do. Things are decently priced, and they have so many of my favorite kinds of tops – elbow length, oversized and adorable. I’ve been asked about how sizing works at Chicwish. Most things are sized at S/M, largely on account of the fact that many of the tops are oversized. Even in my postpartum, 35 lbs of baby weight to lose situation, the S/M almost always fit just fine. Hope that helps!
