Inside My Beach Bag

Sandals // Texturizing Spray // Sunscreen Serum // Sunglasses // Hat // Water Bottle (similar)

With Memorial Day weekend approaching quickly, I wanted to share a few things that I will be packing up as we go to the beach this weekend! Often times, I am weighed down by endless juice boxes, sand toys and snacks, but as a mom we have to have a few things for ourselves, right?! :)

Cute flip-flops
 These sandals are so fun! I love the color, the prince ($4) and the fact that they reference my favorite drink, rose! 

Texturizing Spray
I tried this spray last week at Sephora and fell in LOVE! My hair is very fine and after spraying a bit of this in my beach waves, I felt like I had double the hair.  Plus my hair didn't feel sticky after which has happened with a lot of these types of sprays in the past. 

I have been using this sunscreen serum for a few months now as my morning sunscreen moisturizer. It is light weight and doesn't feel like you are wearing sunscreen. As a Floridian with sun sensitive skin, I try and be diligent about wearing sunscreen daily, so this is a perfect option. 

I have been living in these sunglasses since Kris got them for me for Christmas! I love the fact that they are metallic and hide super tired eyes! This brand is fantastic - the quality is great and the price point is even less than other similar brands. 

Panama Hat
This Panama hat has been in my closet for a few years now! I love that it goes from the beach to the city with ease. 

Water Bottle
Drinking water is obviously an essential at the beach! I have been a huge S'Well fan for a few years now since I found my first S'well bottle on vacation in California! I recently was in Jo-Ann's with my girls and found a cute dupe for only $10! It works similarly and has such a cute palm print. S'well has one here that is also adorable!

My Favorite Spring/Summer Transition Dress

Dress ($30!!) // Shoes // Athena Necklace 

This spring/summer dress has been on heavy rotation in my wardrobe lately! I wore it for a baby shower, to church and for a girls night recently. It is easy to wear and is so high quality for the price point! I paired it with these cute espadrilles (so comfortable) and my favorite new necklace from the Styled Collection! I just learned about this site and am obsessed! My necklace is only $36 and I love the layered look! 

Have a great day! XOXO Meggan 

Black & White Gingham

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was filled with a girls night with my best friends, a friends daughter's birthday party at the splash pad, and a double date night! 

I have always been a huge fan of gingham...even when it wasn't that popular! Many years ago, I once wore a red and white gingham dress to a casual rehearsal dinner. I loved the dress, buuuut I didn't know the dinner was a BBQ...with red gingham table cloths, ha! Nothing like matching the table cloth...whoops! 

Well, this black and white gingham top is one of my favorite Target purchases ever. The print is on trend, the material is comfortable and it has the cutest bell sleeve! And hello it's Target...only $28! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

XOXO Meggan 

Lace Up Tee and Distressed Denim

As a mom of two little ones, t-shirts have been on repeat for the last few years; you might say I am a connoisseur, ha! I wore this outfit earlier this week for a casual work from home day  I love this lace up t-shirt because it is a great length and has such a unique neck detail. I didn't find it to be too low cut at all. I paired this top with the most comfortable distressed white denim! I have tried so many different white jeans, and this brand is by far my favorite. They are at such  a great price point to boot! These Tieks are an investment, but they are SO worth it! They have held up so well and are THE most comfortable shoes ever! I hope you have a great day, friend! 

Charlotte's Pineapple First Birthday Party

Since it has been a while (ahem, forever) since I have blogged, I am catching up with posts on some of my favorite events! Miss Charlotte turned one during late summer, and we thought that a pineapple party would be the perfect theme for an outside bash!

We kept the party super small and child oriented. Kris grilled chicken and steak kebabs and I had a dessert/snack bar for the kids (and grown up kids)! The dessert bar included organic applesauce pouches, multi color goldfish, cupcakes, vanilla oreos, pudding and party favors!

Charlotte had so much fun; especially eating her smash cake! I have included source/information on DIY projects.

mine were a DIY using these clear latex balloons and tissue paper cut into mini rectangles and placed into the balloon before blowing it up with helium

mine was from target last summer but the above is cute!

to make the banner, I cut some burlap in a pendant shape and fabric strips from Joanns. I then designed pineapple "one" by searching for a pineapple image online and adding it to the "ne" in word. I lined them up appropriately, printed in black and white and then cut it out so it was one word. Then I traced it over iron on gold glitter paper that I got from Hobby Lobby and ironed it onto the burlap! Then I simply measured some twine to fit the high chair, tied on the ribbon and hot glued on the burlap. I attached it with command mini hooks on the sides! 

I found this cute smash cake from our Publix for $9! Yay! Charlotte loved it!
