Fashion Friday & Beach Days

Hello, Friday!!!  Tomorrow marks five whole years of marriage with the love of my life, we are so excited to celebrate all day long!  The grandparents will be taking care of our girls, no huge plans, just a day of relaxing kid-free on the beach and then dinner for two.

Speaking of the beach, we have been trying to make our way there at least once a week to burn off some energy and enjoy some sunshine.  Going to the beach with kids (especially when you are on your own & outnumbered), is hardly relaxing but it's definitely one of our favorite activities in the summer.  Little sissy already loves it just as much as we do, if only we could get her to not eat her weight in sand - we would be golden. ;)

Avalon is wearing the sweetest dress ever from She's So Precious, I absolutely adore it!  White is my favorite color to wear hands-down, for both me & the girls, even though it's super risky for all of us, since it always ends up dirty.  Well worth the cuteness, though!  The dress has the most beautiful embroidery and the tie on the back is just precious!  I love how classic it is, I can see this being passed down to my grandkids one day (whaaaaat?!!), I will definitely keep this one forever.


A special shout-out to my mother-in-law who handmade Avalon's bonnet (in fifteen minutes!), another piece I will cherish forever and ever, without a doubt!

And before I sign off for the weekend, if you follow us on IG, you may have seen the circus that is a beach day for me with two kids.  We got this beach cart at the end of last summer and though it took forever & a day to load it, it was amazing and we definitely won't do a beach day without it ever again.  The wheels go perfectly on the sand, and obviously, you can fit a lot on it.  I'm happy to report that I got all three of us and the cart down to the beach and back, though I'm sure the site wasn't too pretty at all.

  2. Seriously though! How do you keep them from eating all the sand? We took my 11 month old to the beach for the first time and it stresses me out so bad!

  5. I cannot even imagine going to the beach by myself with 2 small kids!! It's so enhausting lugging everything to the beach! You are one brave momma! To be honest, I can't imagine getting to go the beach all the time! That would be awesome!!

  6. Waverly in that last photo has me cracking up laughing. Too funny! But that dress on Avalon? To die. Definitely a classic, and one for her memory box. Love sweet pieces like that! And girl, I feel you. We don't have a beach nearby, but taking my kiddos to the pool is an Olympic effort. My goodness. Along with carting all the things, just making sure they are both sunscreened up and, you know, alive the whole time is completely exhausting. But well worth it:) Happy Friday, sweet friend!

  7. A beach cart sounds amazing, but do you not have stairs to get to it? The stairs are always the worst part of a beach trip, lugging the few things we bring.
    Loooove the white dress, so pretty.

  10. I hope you guys had the best anniversary! A beach date sounds amazing. Wearing white is definitely worth the risk. All three of you look adorable in white. Wait, she made that in only 15 minutes? Amazing! I am impressed. Love all of the pictures and their matching swimsuits.
