Although we don’t have true vacation plans on the horizon, I can’t help but feel like I should pack for a getaway with this gauzy cotton dress—the embroidered blue details, and subtle front tassels make for a slight gypsy, bohemian flair—calling for a seaside destination. Club Monaco’s Summer Style Event is currently offering up to 30% off, where you can snatch a unique array of breezy items, like this dress, in hues of light blue. Below I link to a few items I’m loving for the Summer season, or you can shop curated items at the Club Monaco beach shop here with discount code “summer.” With the baby on the way, truth be told, I haven’t had much time to think about summer vacation plans nor do much blogging (these photos were taken Easter weekend, so, as you can imagine, the bump is much bigger these days!).
With less than 9 weeks left to go, I’m in full nesting mode. Cleaning, organizing and preparing for my maternity leave consume most of my free moments. From the cars to the closets, and even my husband’s office—there seems to be an urgent need to put everything in tiptop shape. Although I’d normally classify myself as a “doer,” this nesting energy is quite the real deal; in chatting with other mamas, I’m glad to see it’s not me going coo-coo, but part of the innate preparation process for our baby’s arrival. Oddly enough, it almost reminds me of my wedding planning: counting down the days, keenly focused on what’s needed to get done, all in time for the “big day.”
With that said, I’m enjoying every last minute with Chris as a family of two. Soon there will be a third person in the mix and life as we know it will change. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited beyond belief and can’t wait for our little girl to get here, but I’m intentionally savoring these last special moments with the hubs. In years to come, we’ll look back and say, “remember those days…we had so much time on our hands!” 🙂
Any vacation plans this summer? I always find that part of the fun in traveling is preparing what to wear. In case you’re packing for a getaway, or just looking for a summer silhouette, below I link to a few coastal styles fitting for your next warm-weather outing. Grab a straw bag, a fedora hat and slip into some comfy sandals. And just like that, you’ll be ready for this Summer season. Voila!
