Shades of Blue

Over the weekend we took a trip to my favorite Brunch spot, Egg Harbor, and while walking to the restaurant Adam saw a trail of gigantic ants so we all had to stop and appreciate them for a moment. It is amazing all of the things we fail to notice as adults – if we just change our perspective a little bit we could really enjoy our world a little more. I’m convinced that is why God invented children…

I loved the fact that the house behind the ants matched my outfit so well, so I thought, why not take a few pictures? After blogging for a few years, my mind now constantly scouts locations for photo shoots, it is just automatic! After brunch we spent the afternoon cleaning the house and then went to our neighbors for a swim. Pretty much a perfect Sunday in my opinion!

I wore what I think is the perfect outfit for anyone – no matter your size or shape. A skinny jean, tee, pointed pump, and a lightweight trench (slightly oversized is my preference). If it is too warm for long sleeves, opt for a sleeveless trench and tank top instead.

  • Probably the tidiest part of my house right now...ngl 
In addition to fixing all the things that shouldn’t have even been broken, I’m also currently working on a few fun design projects - my powder bathroom remodel and my attic - soon to be dream walk-in closet ~ check my ‘home’ highlights for that as I’ll be posting a lot more soon, including drawings, swatches and all of that fun stuff! 
Side note: my shoes are mostly still in boxes that’s really why I keep wearing these same old flip flops! 😂
  • Monday’s after a trip are the absolute Monday-est...😫 Tonight’s plan is to unwind with a bath and my newest favorite @greenenvee collagen gel mask - it has hyaluronic acid and aloe, and it is really cooling and hydrating - which has been SO great in this heat. I’ve been using this masque in conjunction with their collagen serum for over a month and I’m already seeing results - reduced fine lines and more radiant skin. Check out @greenenvee for these products. They have a boutique in Geneva for all my local babes!
I’ve been testing a lot of new products this year and I’m going to share my skincare routine with all of my favorites very soon - stay tuned! And thank you to @greenenvee for sending me these lovely products to test. (please know I will only talk about the products I truly love and highly recommend.) #cleanbeauty #bathtime
  • I left my laptop AND dslr camera at home and only brought ONE pair of shoes with me (flip flops!😱) for a weekend at the lake ~ I honestly don’t know who I am anymore - but...I like who I’m becoming💕 hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! My swimsuit is @zimmermann and pants are thrifted #lakelife
  • Today’s look, wearing my new (to me) high waist vintage mom jeans that fit like a *glove* - swipe to see the 🍑 it’s so cute. Now off to see @kosexyhair_ to give this mop of hair some much needed tlc, color and finally a 💇🏾!
  • Yesterday I shared over my stories a recent bullying incident I had (still on stories now for a little while) and I am SO glad I did. What started as someone dm’ing me about Islam and nazar, ended up in a long hateful message criticizing everything from me being a housewife down to my makeup choices. I’m also a huge narcissist because I post pictures of myself, my family, and my home on my Instagram, and I should expect to get nazar (evil eye). Well here’s a selfie in response to that! And btw I’m going to keep posting pictures of myself because I’m ALLOWED to take up space in this world how ever I choose to. I wanted to ignore the message completely but the person was borderline stalking so I had to do something (and yes she is blocked and reported). The outpouring of support, encouragement, and love from all of you really meant the world to me. One person messaged me about how this type of behavior really stems from the patriarchy and as long as we as women are divided, we will never rise. We as women need to change this and instead of tearing each other down, actually be kind and gracious to each other because we are ALL in this together ❤️
  • A peek into my master bath since I still have those pretty roses from my solo trip to the French Market 🌸 I did a little shelf styling which I think makes the room so much cozier ~ I am focusing on the big design projects in the house now so everything I used to style the shelf (and the shelf itself) is stuff I already had, but I think it works - at least for now! #masterbathroom #onyxcountertop
  • Love him despite his terrible taste in hats 🙃 More Fourth of July partying today with family and old friends thanks to the amazing hosts Renee & Jason! (Tagged my suit, my shorts are Levi’s - thrifted)

Yup! our #fourthofjuly celebration is going according to plan! hope you all got the day off and doing something fun today 🇺🇸🎇
