The most fun weekend of summer is just around the corner, we can’t wait for food trucks, fireworks & sparklers! I put together a few of my favorite Fourth of July inspired mini styles, I always look forward to coordinating the girls in their red, white & blue. I love all of these because they are versatile enough to wear all summer long, my girls pretty much live in dot leotards & graphic tees! I’m also obsessed with those swim trunks and need that pattern on a swimsuit for girls asap! Something about ice cream & bomb pops always gets me.
On the topic of online shopping, I thought I would share this story as a reminder as to why I rarely shop in stores (especially with my kids). Last week I took the girls with me to a local store to buy a dress for my trip back to Iowa, I normally put Eloise & Claire in the double stroller & Harper walks, but Eloise was begging to walk this time. I let her (against my better judgement), so while we were in the store, I had Claire in the stroller, Harper holding onto it, and then Eloise holding Harper’s hand, so she was the furthest from me but they were all being really well behaved. I bent down to look at a pile of folded clothes on the bottom shelf of a table, when all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in the back of my head and heard a crash. I fell to the ground and turned around to see that the girls had knocked over three seven-foot-tall mannequins, all of which came crashing down on top of me. I burst into tears, one because it hurt SO bad, but second because I had already been on the verge of crying all day buying a dress for my grandma’s funeral. Needless to say, I was so thankful they hit me and not anyone else or the girls, but damn. Lesson learned, we are online shopping for life.
What are your plans for the Fourth?! Hope you are having an amazing start to your summer break! XO299
