I have a confession, I shop in the kids departments. I’m only 5’2″, so regular clothes, and even some petites are usually too tall for me. I have to be creative when shopping for trends, because they usually don’t come in petites, so I always check the kids departments and see what they have. This denim off the shoulder dress is from J. Crew Crewcuts! I’m wearing a size 12, I could have done a 10 because it runs really really big, but I was afraid that the elastic in the arms would be too tight. I am usually a 14 in kids, so a 12 was a shock. The best part about shopping in the kids section is that clothes (and shoes) are always cheaper than adults, so I feel like I am getting a great deal.
A few weeks back, I borrowed Blaire’s adorable pom pom clutch and I mentioned that I was eying this cute straw pom pom clutch for myself. Well, right after I wrote that I got a text from Blaire asking if I had purchased it already. I was being lazy and hadn’t yet, but it was on my to-do list. She immediately says DO NOT BUY IT, which obviously means YAY, she already got it for me for my birthday! The bad part was, I had to wait 3 weeks before I got it. But now I have it and it is SUPER cute. Thanks Bestie for knowing me so well!
I hope that everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend. Father’s Day gifts are so different than Mother’s Day gifts. We want massages and to be pampered, for dads, they get power tools useful things. I got my husband a garden hose and a new set of pruning shears and he loved them! Super fun, I know. The best gift that I gave was for my Father in Law. It was these marshmallow roasting sticks for making s’mores. The sticks have two prongs and extend out 32″, so you don’t have to get so close to the fire. If you have kids or just like s’mores (guilty) they are a must have and a great gift!
