gettin' it in gingham

May 31, 2017

Currently still trying to pull myself out of the weekend funk. Yesterday was rough! Rough and lazy my friends. My children did not wake up until well after 8:00 am!! Like a dumbass I just sat at the computer and online shopped....looked at a few new beaches to explore....and genuinely just wasted those precious child free moments that I could have been doing many a things
Summer gingham outfits
Cute gingham outfits
gingham top: j.crew factory // jeans: nordstrom (old, very similar) // shoes: j.crew // bag: cult gaia 

But sometimes after a long weekend, you have to just ease back into things. Or we do. I know you go getters were out and about feeling like a champ. I'll get there, at least by Friday. I really have so many places that I want to explore with the kids, but if we are having an honest mom moment, going alone with four kids is intimidating. Simply because I turn into a helicopter parent when kicking it solo in crowded places. I mean sure, I have done a ton with them on my own, but I hate feeling so overwhelmed that I don't enjoy the outing. This always happen, I get so inside my own head about things, but the alternative of staying in the house is even worse in my book. But now that school is out, more summer activities are popping up so I get excited for the kids to do new things and make new friends.

And a perfect summer outing outfit cannot be complete without gingham right? I love this gingham button down! It is SO lightweight, and can basically be paired with anything and you are good to go. 

How was your Tuesday/Monday? 


  1. Oh I feel you I mean I just have three but it's like all I do is spin my head around trying to keep track of them! But can't let that stop us!! Today was lettys first day back at school and it. Is. Tough.

  2. I love that top!!! Happy Wednesday!!! :)

  3. I only have one child and sometimes doing things is rough and I have to be on a rush. You totally rock those wide cropped jeans. I love the gingham shirt too - a trend I am currently loving. My next post will feature a gingham dress.

    Welcome by tomorrow and every Thursday and linkup with me darling. Thanks, Ada. =)

    Happy Hump Day!!

  4. I imagine I would feel the same way on a solo outing with four kiddos. I think you spent your time well if you ask me. ;) Loving this gingham with the culottes!

  5. Love the style of these culottes with that gingham top. I cannot imagine four kiddos at once out. I get anxiety with my two in large crowds. Sounds like you picked the right choice!
