festival vibes

Festival Outfits Ideas
And when I say festival, I don't mean Coachella or any other uber fun music festival. I mean momchella....all day err day! Yesterday was a great example of momchella. Nothing screams party like some store bought Trolls decorations, balloons, and a non-homemade cake. Oh, and pizza, and unwrapped presents handed out throughout the day. And half the pie I ate while watching Passengers after the kids went to bed.

If you've been around these parts for awhile then you know we set the birthday party expectations super low. We basically just make sure we check everything off their little wish list (within reason.....Avalon is already asking for a dolphin for her birthday). But we partied hard yesterday. By six Chris was saying, "is it bedtime? I feel like I haven't sat down all day." I feel ya homie, I feel ya. I half-heartedly wish I could get all pinterest-y with the kids' birthday celebrations, but I just feel like at their ages it is so much more for show, than for them. And I just can't stress myself out over burlap birthday banners, and the perfect tassel streamers. Not to mention my creativity starts and ends with scotch tape. 
Spring Denim Outfits

What I am really looking forward to is my date with Avalon on Friday to see Beauty and the Beast!! Who's going?  She is just beaming with excitement every time she asks if it's Friday yet. I might even wear this outfit on repeat and layer a turtleneck under this denim dress, since the weather has decided to go crazy (I know I have no reason to say anything since we didn't see a speck of snow, but it is still chilly out there!) I am obsessed with this distressed denim dress though. And I mean, it's denim how could I not be? Avalon cannot be bothered with denim on the big day, she picked out a Belle themed ensemble, complete with rose printed tutu. 

Is it Friday yet?


  1. I'm so thrown off now that we have another snow day today! But the weekend sounds great to me! We are seeing beauty and the beast on Saturday! Cannot freaking wait!!!

  2. I'm over here with a big ol AMEN on that pinterest party thing. I threw a couple of Pinterest style birthday parties for my older son when he was one and two and I realized how silly it was. Now, we just celebrate with balloons, of course gifts and a day full of whatever they want to do! My youngest is two today, so we are heading out shortly to have a day of fun! :-D Also, you have the coolest mom style, it's like runway style!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

    1. Yes!! Balloons are a must, they completely make the whole day for my kids. :)

  3. Yay for a date with your girl! You guys are going to have a blast.

  4. I can't wait until I can take Riley to the movies. Until then, we will refrain from ruining everyone's experience! Also, love the jeans, I have yet to decide if I can pull them off - but you might be convincing me to try!!

    1. HA! I totally get that. Odette is like that, we tried a movie with all the kids a few months ago and I just ended up in the hallway running around with Odette (which is I mean, duh, she is two. LOL) . Avalon is pretty chill and can sit through a movie.

  5. My mom is coming into town today and we are going to see Beauty and the Beast too! It was my first theater movie as a little girl so things are coming full circle LOL!

  6. Girllllll straight killing it! I need this dress and I love how you wore it over the flares!

  7. Such a great look! Loving those flare jeans and the denim-on-denim with that hat!

    Trendy & Tidy

  8. Your Momchella look (I love how you called it too) is perfect for everyday. That is a fun denim dress. Avalon would love the movie. I took my little 4-year old beauty yesterday and she did so well, sat through it all and loved it. I did too. It was fantastic!

    Welcome by on Thursdays and linkup with me. Share your lovely style with my readers. Thanks, Ada.

    Happy Hump Day!

    P.S. My DIY skills start and end with the Scotch tape too (most of the time) lol.
