this last week the weather has been outrageous- a real break in the heat from the 100+ temps we have become accustomed to over the last several months. we have wanted nothing more than to just soak it in while we can! it is August, so summer is definitely not over yet!
we live just outside a funky little college town..home to some really unique spots with hole in the wall diners and some of the best ice cream you have ever eaten. live music plays on the grassy knoll in from the court house after the sun goes down, and in this same spot just an hour earlier, under the 150 year old trees, you can find about 75 men and women doing yoga in the grass.
the BEST kind of weather to enjoy this kind of esthetic of our town.
we have a favorite little breakfast spot- its open 24 hours a day and serves the BEST omelets (for me!) and chocolate chip pancakes (for the kids). after going back and for a minute about having breakfast for dinner or cheese burgers, we went for the breakfast! even though.. cheeseburgers are delicious at this one little spot. not to mention it was open mic night and the rooftop seating was phenom! but alas.. the nibbles of chocolate chip pancakes soaked in maple syrup I steal off of Jolie’s plate were calling my name.
after dinner we made our little spot on the grass to listen to the live music. these days I am always looking for something to wear that is comfortable and cute but still allows me to not look like a complete mess when I’m trying to wrangle my little people. I was introduced to pinkblush when I was pregnant with Baker. looking for something to cover this bump, their maternity style
of clothing was right up my alley. I actually didn’t even realize they had a full (and amazing) line of women’s clothing
completely outside of maternity clothes until recently. the cold shoulder dress I am wearing is actually versatile enough to transition from maternity to non-maternity. but for this bump-less gal over here I appreciate the longer length that this dress has to offer!
I’ve teamed up with pinkblush
to offer one lucky winner $50 gift card to this trendy online boutique
towards anything they wish! I know you mamas out there could use some easily transitional staple pieces in your closet, and every little bit helps to kick off a fresh start to this season’s fall wardrobe, right? RIGHT!! in the meantime, pinkblush has a promotion going right now, just use code WHATUNEED for 25% sitewide
