How fun are these wide leg jeans! I finally bit the bullet and purchased a pair of wide leg, cropped jeans for the summer season as an alternate to my beloved boyfriend jeans. It seemed like it was about time to have an alternate pair of jeans, since I have all but abandoned my skinny jeans.

These cropped wide leg jeans are super comfortable; and fun! I love the bleached design at the crop. Since I am 5’4″, the regular size hits me at the ankles. Maybe I should have ordered petite? If I was taller, it would hit me a couple inches above the ankles; which I think looks amazing. If there were not details on the edges of the jeans, I would cut them to be a little bit higher.

I wore this outfit last weekend for a sushi dinner with my family. it was our second time eating at Sushi Confidential in downtown Campbell. The food was really good, so we had a lot of fun! If you are local, be sure to check it out!

My nine-year-old son took these photos. He was so cute trying to work my dslr camera! It is fun teaching him photography. I love how my two younger kids love to learn photography.

What are your thoughts on the cropped wide leg jeans trend? Is this a trend you plan to wear?

Thanks for stopping by!

This past weekend my husband and my son went off to Cub Scout camp. This meant my two daughters and I had a weekend with just us girls! Can you say-Girls Weekend!!

Friday night we watched a movie and ate dinner at home. On Saturday, we did something the boys don’t like to do-we went shopping! I took the girls to Sino at Santana Row for Dim Sum, and we shopped around Santana Row. The weather was warm and summer-like, so it was a beautiful day to be walking around outside. While we were walking around, my cute little ten-year-old snapped these pictures for me. Isn’t she great!

Saturday evening we did some house-cleaning (so not glamorous), and watched another movie on TV. Super fun! On Sunday we went to church, did a Goodwill run, and ran a few errands. The rest of the day my older daughter had some volunteer work to do, and of course, homework! Ugh, cannot wait for school to be over!

All in all it was a quiet, family weekend with my girls. This easy breezy maxi skirt paired with a comfy tee worked perfectly for the hot weather, and hanging out with my daughters.

Are you getting out and enjoying this summer weather?

Thanks for stopping by!

It is entirely possible I am obsessed with this season’s ruffle trend. I have stocked up on four tops this year with ruffles! I’m not counting peplum as ruffles; do you count peplum as ruffles? It seems like a lot of pieces from one trend, but when you love something, why not go all in!

You might be tired of seeing me in my boyfriend jeans, after all, I have owned them for a couple of years now, but they really work well with all of the ruffle tops I’ve aquired for 2017; and they create a daytime ruffle look which is comfortable and easy to wear. When paired with skinny jeans, I find ruffle tops take on more of an evening look; at least here in the Bay Area.

I wore this summer ruffle top outfit to meet up with my friend Dawn from FashionShouldBeFun.com. She is one of my best blogging buddies, and she has turned out to be a great friend! If you are not already following her, be sure to follow along!

We met up at Pizza Antica at Santana Row for lunch to catch up on life, and talk about new trends in web design. When you blog, you work alone, so it is nice to have other blogger friends to talk to about things like web design, and other business topics related to blogging. I’m always looking for ways to tweak my site to make it easier for you navigate, if you have any suggestions, likes/dislikes, feel free to leave them in the comments below!

After lunch, I went home and finished planning our summer camp schedule. I am a little frightened at how many camps I signed my kids up for! We have art camp, baseball camp, archery camp, tennis camp, lego camp, and writing classes! Whew! I might need to clone myself to drive my kids to and from all their camps this summer!!

This ruffle top was perfect for my busy day since the fabric was comfortable, and the off-the-shoulder sleeve actually stayed off without constantly popping over-the-shoulder like so many tops do! It can also be worn with both shoulders down, but I like how it looks one up, one down. Although it sustained a few wrinkles, they were not that noticeable, and super easy to iron out when I got home. I cannot believe it was under $60!! I think it will look cute dressed up this summer with a black pencil skirt for more of an evening look, and a small black shoulder bag.

Have you scheduled out your summer yet? Have you ever over-scheduled summer like me? (searching for beach days!!)
