Trip to the Farm

The weather here has been ridiculously hot lately, too hot to do anything outside unless you are head to toe covered in water, and it honestly has me a little bit over summer and dreaming of fall.  But this weekend it finally cooled down some, so we took the girls to a little farm near us to visit with the animals and to get ice cream.

My husband & I have a not-so-secret life dream of moving to the country.  He's always been 100% for it and I recently came on board, since I realized that even though it may be farther than a mall than I'm used to, now that I have kids all I do is shop online anyways.  Our girls love to be outside, as do we, and the thought of all our kids growing up & making memories like this on a huge chunk of land is pretty magical to me.


I also wanted to share the details on the maxi dress I am wearing, which I love so very much!!!  I have been a tried & true fan of maxi dresses forever, they are a go-to for me all year long.  I just love how put together they make you look and feel, when let's be honest, you are a mom and you really aren't put together at all. ;)

The print on this one stood out to me immediately, the floral makes it summery for now but it can also be worn in the fall or winter with a denim or leather jacket.  The dress is from Pink Blush, which also has a great maternity line, and actually this dress is sold in maternity as well.  I am running a giveaway on my Instagram starting tonight for a $50 credit, they have so many other adorable options as well!!  Good luck! :)


And hope you all had the best weekend!

  2. It has reached those miserably hot temps here in Texas too! I am dreaming of Fall something fierce right about now. This farm looks awesome and you got the sweetest pictures. I especially love the one of the girls in front of that pipe fence where Waverly is wrapped around Avalon! So precious. Your dress is as beautiful as you are, friend!

  4. Beautiful print on that maxi! I'm not in love with the one I picked out, but I always forget to try things on before taking tags off and washing. Fail.
    And, moving to a farm would be amazing! I'd love to do that with my family =)
