Packing packing and more packing! Luckily this striped jersey shift dress is a cinch to fold and doesn’t easily wrinkle. We are heading to Florida for spring break today and I am beyond excited to catch some vitamin D! We’re spending a few days in Boca, a few in Miami, and then the last 2 days in the Keys visiting friends and family the entire time and logging lots of beach hours! What I love most about this dress is that it is jersey material, can be worn super casual as a beach dress or even a cover-up, but is also appropriate for dinner with fun flats or wedges. I just ordered these and SO wish they arrived in time for me to take them on our trip but they didn’t 🙁 aaaaand I paid enough expedited shipping charges already (because have I mentioned I’m the worst procrastinator?) so I suppose it will be something to cheer me up from vaca blues when we return. I’ll probably be in flats a ton on this trip anyway since we will be playing on the beach and running around with the boys.
Speaking of the boys, I occasionally get asked why I don’t post more pictures of them on my Instagram so I figured it would be a good time to address that before we head on our family trip. First.. have I mentioned I have 3 boys ages 7.5, 5.5, and 3.5? Need I say more?! Ha! No, but seriously the last thing they want to do is pose for pictures. I work while they are in school and when they get home it’s homework, sports, or just general chaos. The weekends are pretty much the same. I can sometimes get Zander to pose for photo with me but even then there is some bribing going on and I pretty much have to hose him down first because he is such a dirty little monkey :). So honestly it’s not worth the pain it causes on all fronts! And no.. we are not trying for a girl so I can dress her up and take photos with her.. We are DONE! 🙂 Happy with my crazy boys even if I can’t walk through the house with getting pelted my a nurf gun or tackled while trying to walk in heels. However I DO hope to get some great family pics and pics of the boys while we are on vaca, so fingers crossed for that! If you ever want to see there shenanigans “real time” I regularly post them on Insta Stories so you can check that to get a good laugh (or feel sorry for me :).. j/k)
Excited to share all of my fun beach looks for you over the next week so make sure to keep checking my Instagram!!
Have a great day!
