Festive Summer Stripes you Need and New Mexico

Summer Adventure

This summer I’m all about adventure! Being teachers and all, my husband and I both have the same summer vacation, and this year we planned on doing something a little different. Rather than flying out to a destination, we thought it would be exciting to a take a road trip and meet up with my sisters and their families at the Grand Canyon in Arizona; sort of a mini family reunion.

Now, keep in mind we do have a two-year old, meaning we need to take our time. With that I thought, how cool would it be to make a mini stop in New Mexico? The hubs doesn’t know about my little plan just yet, but he will shortly!

Festive Summer Stripes

With this festive pit stop we make, the girls and I are surly going to need to look the part, and I would say our striped and festive dresses will be perfect! You can find my dress from ASOS, see similar here, here, here, and here, complete with wrap up heels by Steve Madden or gladiator sandals from Target, and an authentic Mexican leather bag, which can be found via Etsy. As for the girls, their dresses can be found at Target, Tay’s here, similar sandals here, and Sisi’s here, and gladiators here). Whether or not you go on an adventure this summer, just make sure you keep it festive with these must haves!

See my video blog and pictures below to see our festive styled dresses! Don’t forget to scroll all the way to the bottom to shop our looks! And, just FYI… ASOS literally just sold out of this dress as soon as it was delivered to my front door on Saturday; they do have other colors–which are linked on my Shop the Post below. Other than that, I found some amazing similar looks that you would enjoy, and I’ll keep you posted about restock alerts.

Keepin’ It Festive, Casual & Cozy For the Holidays

Keepin’ It Festive, Casual & Cozy…

Mom life and teacher life is always crazy, which unfortunately means we get a late start on our holiday festivities and shopping. However, with it being the holidays and all, of course you know this mama must be rollin’ in style.

This past weekend kicked off the first of our Christmas break. Thankfully my husband and I are both teachers, so we get the same vacation–meaning we’re able to be super productive in a short time.

First stop… McKinney, Texas.

This chic and adorable little town allows me to find affordable, yet unique gifts. I also get to antique shop, which my husband just loves (insert sarcasm). On this stop, I kept it festive!

This festive poncho (originally from Urban Outfitters) is by far my favorite piece for the holidays! Click here and here for two similar looks.
I paired my casual overalls with this super chic pussy bow blouse, just like I did in the fall.This look wouldn’t be complete without a knit pom pom beanie.
My rustic decorative sled I just had to have! I was inspired by the amazing Pearls and Petunias.  My husband is such a great sport! Ha! Thank goodness he’s always down for a photo opportunity. Click here for a similar hooded vest, and here for his plaid flannel.
Click here for my Sassy Pop’s “Be Bold” Old Navy graphic tee and here for her hat.
Also check out Tayteebear’s similar Old Navy boots, and patchwork denim.

Next Stop… Trade Days!

On the next stop, I kept it a bit more casual at trade days, sort of an antique flea market… I switched out my festive poncho and formal pussy bow blouse for my casual military cargo jacket and black turtleneck.

How cool is this lumber jack hat?
I’ve had this awesome jacket since I graduated from college, but click here and here for a similar military cargo jacket.  These Target rain boots are amazing, but unfortunately they’re long gone… but check these boots out! Pretty darn close!
Love this hat  This look minus the jacket… <3

Last Stop… Enjoy Christmas Lights with the Fam!

On our last stop we took a family walk enjoying all of the festive Christmas lights. We also drove through a strip of choreographed dancing lights. Love this time of year.

Everyone must have a cozy puff coat–see a similar one here.
Love this faux fur pom pom beanie!

Jam packed day… but so worth it when you get to enjoy it all with family.

Wishing you all festive, casual, and cozy holidays!
