Outift Post: Summer Blues

In the summer I practically live at the pool. But with this new baby, I’m not feeling quite as confident rocking a bikini while walking around (sike – I’m never walking, it’s always chasing a kid yelling at them to stop buying snacks or to stop dumping water on people). Cue a good cover-up.

This Vineyard Vines one is pretty enough to go from the pool or beach to the patio bar. I’ve worn it over my suit but also paired it with dark jeans and espadrilles for a casual dinner. The only thing I have to watch out for is grubby kids hands and my own clumsiness to avoid a spill. Plus how cute is this bag? I am obsessed. Just like this cover-up can go from day to night, this bag is big enough to fit your beach reads, sunscreen and water bottle but is pretty enough to pair with a dress for dinner out. Plus it’s on sale.

Speaking of sales, there’s a ton going on this weekend. I’ve included a few links below so you can get your summer shop on before heading out on vacation for the long weekend.

Outfit Post: Lunch Date * The Exchange

Being on maternity leave has a lot of benefits, one of which is being able to dress down just about every day. And while I’m currently wearing workout clothes as I write this, I sported this easy summer look for a lunch and shopping date in New Albany with my mom while she was still in town post-baby. Had to stop by Dress & Dwell for some new clothes to fit in this weird in-between time.

We hit up The Exchange and sat on their patio for a boozy Tuesday lunch – another perk of maternity leave, cocktails at lunch. I rarely get over to New Albany but the patio at The Exchange, plus the delicious cocktails (I had the ‘Crimson and Clover’ – a super refreshing mix of vodka, cucumber, lemon and more) has me wanting to go back for happy hour or dinner. Seriously, this is not sponsored, I’m just convinced they have one of the best outdoor spaces in the area. If you go, make sure to try the Goat Cheese Fritters and get a side of fries no matter what. So delicious.

One quick comment on this bag – I’ve gotten more compliments on it than any expensive bag I’ve ever owned. This pretty pink cross-body was $25 at Old Navy (got it on sale) but looks WAY fancier. The pink is sold out but the brown is equally cute and looks luxe (and it’s 20% off today). Plus it’s big enough to actually hold your wallet, phone and other random crap without being stuffed to the gills.
