Strip of Blue

Happy Thursday! 

I know that when you have a baby everyone tells you to enjoy every second because it goes by in a blink of an eye. I am here to tell you, it is so true! 
I feel like just yesterday my son was born, how is he going off to middle school in the Fall? 

I remember thinking his first day of Kindergarten, he will be here forever, six years! Those six years have gone so fast, and it makes me so sad.  Yesterday I picked him up for the last time from his after school program and this morning was the last time I will drop him off at elementary school. 
At this point we might as well be looking at colleges, and shopping around for his first apartment!

Other than the emotional rollercoaster of the end of the school year, this is my favorite time of year.
The weather has been perfect, low 80s and zero humidity. I love dressing for the late spring, not too hot to still wear jeans and layers.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

  5. You look so chic
    you do not look like you have
    a son entering middle school.
    Have a great day!


  6. Just love this beautiful outfit with its soft nautical blue and white colors. The frayed edges on your white denim is such a fun detail! I love the striped top! My son is going to be in 7th grade next year, I just can't believe it!


  7. It looks extremely pretty by the harbour filled with sailboats and motorboats for the summer - what a beautiful setting - idyllic.
    It's hard to believe you have a son who will in middle school already - you look so young - and absolutely fabulous rocking the white cropped fringe flare leg jeans and striped tie-front blouse. Your lipstick and hair look very pretty.

  8. How fun are those pants, and loving the stripes! I hear ya on time flying, I feel like I've blinked and Serena is almost 2. It's crazy how fast it goes by, and I'm definitely trying to treasure every second <3

  9. What a lovely blue outfit! I like your striped top.

    And it's true, they do grow up so fast! It feels like it was only the other day I gave birth to my eldest and we just celebrated his fourth birthday last weekend. Blink and you miss it, haha!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far :) I've managed to catch my first winter bug (only 2 weeks into winter, ha!) So it's a low key one here!
