Friday Five & June Pin-spired

This week/month has really been a blur!
I am hoping we can slow down a bit in June.

Let's get to business!

Linking up my Friday Five with the following

We had a fantastic holiday weekend filled with friends, family, and lots of driving!

I signed up to attend my 2nd Blogger meet & greet!
I can't wait!
I get to meet fellow Ohio bloggers Erin, Kayla, and Shane (to name a few).

Mic rocked the AdvoCare 10 Day Cleanse!
He is down 11 pounds and 8.25 inches overall!

I challenged myself to increase the weight I was using at booty barre class on Wednesday night.
WOW! It was rough, but felt so good afterwards!
I seriously love working out!
Maybe in my next life I will be a trainer :)

We are entering vacation month!!!!!
Not.Excited.One.Bit!!! (said very sarcastically)
In my mind/dream world I will be relaxing by the ocean, sipping a fruity concoction, and soaking up the sun.
In the real world I will be chasing after a very quick 2.5 year old, brushing sand off of me every 5 seconds, and praying X takes a nap each day so I can have a few minutes to sit down :)
I don't care either way honestly!
I just can't wait to spend some time with my little family and our friends! :)
9 month old X on the beach for the first time!
I would love to recreate this photo, but I have a feeling he won't sit still this time around!

How was your week?
Any big weekend plans?

Now onto my favorite monthly link up party with Shay, Sheaffer, & Mel!

Between the Spring Style Me Challenge and just forgetting to take photos of my outfits, I only have one recreation for today :(

But I love this outfit, so that is what matters!

Here is my inspiration photo...

It was love at first sight when I saw this outfit on Pinterest!
White & any color gingham are 100% me!!!!

My result... 
Joe Fresh Gingham shirt, exact
Old Navy white shorts, similar
Silver ball necklace, similar 

I had a long strand of pearls that I could have worn with this,
but I switched them out for a silver ball necklace to keep it more modern.

I even wore it to work that day and just switched out the shorts for my white dress pants!
Old Navy white pants, similar

This is one of my favorite summer go-to outfits!
Now I just need a good faux tan and I am set!

Check out all my pin-spired looks here!

What is your go-to outfit in the summer for work or play?

That is all for today folks :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Vacation takes on a whole new meaning when you do it with a toddler! Fingers crossed you can get him to sit still long enough for a recreation picture, it would be oh so cute.

  2. We're about to have our first kiddo, and we're taking him to Europe with us next summer... It should be interesting! I'm going to be reading a looooot of books about traveling with little ones. ;)

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Didn't know about that meetup, but darn, we'll be staying on Lake Michigan that weekend! Have fun!

  4. Time for family vacation is so fun! I like your outfit too, I've always been a fan of gingham!

  5. Family vacations with toddlers are so different, aren't they? Hope you all have a great one! And I love your outfit, by the way!

  6. Found you through the Link up! And I love that there are blogger meet ups! How do you find out about those? I live in NY and I just can't seem to find any!!!

    Also: I would love a little sun and sand right now! Envious!!!!

    Come check me out if you get a second!

  7. oh family vacation so fun! Where are you going? East Coast or West Coast? Love your outfit recreation. I should participate next time, I've actually never recreated an outfit on pinterest yet...I should though...maybe I'll start looking/ thinking about that this weekend.

  8. Your outfit re-creation is SO spot on! Love it! I'm not ordinarily drawn to gingham and somehow I I am in love with this! And will have a busy time with your 2.5 year old on vacation! Fun...but busy! Enjoy your getaway! And thanks for your nice comments on my blog - you are always so good at interacting in linkups!
