I’m kind of obsessed with all shades of blue lately.  Cobalt blue is one of my favorite shades and with the Fourth of July this week I’ll be wearing a lot of this color mixed with red and white..  Have you found what you’re wearing for the Fourth yet?

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week and check back to see some other patriotic looks.

I’m so excited to share one of my new favorite sites.  I’ve always lived close to malls and great shopping until moving to the South a couple of years ago.  Don’t get me wrong, the shopping down here is fabulous it’s just a bit of a drive from where we live.  I’ve had to rely heavily on online shopping but I’ve always felt like I’m missing out on good deals, you can usually find better sales in the stores.  Well, that all changed once I was introduced to Jane.com!  They have such a great selection of clothes, shoes, accessories, and more!  I picked out this cute polka dot shirt and love it dressed down with jeans or paired with my favorite skirt.  There are so many other cute things I’m dying to order.  You’ll have to check it out and let me know what you’re loving too!

Thanks for stopping by, happy shopping!!!

Neutral Flats

I’m sure you can tell that I love a cute pair of flats.  I’ve always loved heels but flats are just so easy to throw on while I’m out running errands, especially if I’ve got my kids with me.  I’m always on the search for new, cute shoes and I thought I’d share a few I’ve had my eye on.  From the looks of it, I’m definitely leaning toward neutrals.  I’ve linked each pair of shoes below.  Hope you find some you like too!

Rain, rain, go away!  I can’t believe how much it rains in the south!  I shouldn’t be surprised, it’s so green and lush and is always humid, but oh my rain!  I’ve had to change my plans many times because of the rain but I guess I shouldn’t complain because where I’m from (Sacramento area) they need rain so bad, wish we could share with them!

Today I’m wearing one of my favorite sweatshirts from J Crew, I bought it when I was in Utah a few months ago.  It’s a great light-weight sweatshirt that’s perfect for the spring/summer months.  They don’t have this exact one online anymore but if you’re close to a J Crew store check for one, it’s on sale and it’s super comfy!

While we were out taking pics for this post my boys were running wild in the background, they were stuck inside while it was raining for most of the day so they were enjoying their freedom.  If you look close you can see them running or wrestling, we of course had to snap a few pics of them.

Hope you’re all having a good week and staying dry wherever you are.  Thanks for stopping by!

Pool Essentials

Pool Essentials on CaliCrest.comNow that school is out and the kids are home we’ve been spending a lot of time at the pool.  Swimsuit shopping is always a humbling experience but it’s something that’s got to be done.  J Crew has the cutest suits that cover what you need them to while being as flattering as a swimsuit can be.  These are some of my pool essentials.

It’s not very often that Joel and I get a date night.  With our kids getting older we have a game, swim meet, or a practice just about every night.  So when we have a sports free evening we try to take advantage of it and go out.  I don’t get overly dressed up but I love an excuse to throw on some heels.  Here’s what I wore on our last date night, I love mixing dressy and casual pieces.  Looking forward to more date nights this summer!

I’m kind of obsessed with stripes and straw bags right now.  I’ve had this bag for a couple years and bring it out every spring/summer, it’s timeless!  This outfit has been on repeat lately because it’s just so easy to throw on and run errands without looking sloppy.  I’d love to hear what your go-to outfit is.

Father’s Day Wish List

Father's Day Wish List on CaliCrest.com.jpg

 

It’s Wish List Wednesday and with Father’s Day around the corner I figured this is the best time to put a little wish list together for the dads out there.  Joel helped me out with this one so I’ll definitely be getting him something off this list.  We tried to stay away from the typical new tie and socks gift but I had to include these Stance socks because I’m sure ever guy out there would love a pair, they’re the best!  Hopefully this will give you a few ideas for the special guy in your life.  Thanks for stopping by!
