Linking up here!
When we were in Michigan it was cold for us Floridians so we got to get some good wear out of a lot of Ace’s long sleeved t’s and fun skinny jeans. I seriously love dressing this boy.

This past weekend was fabulous. Saturday Bran had off which is always nice since weekend days off are not a guarantee with his job.
We weren’t planning on staying long so we said screw it, we weren’t paying over $30 to go for 2 hours so we decided to go to the Sawgrass Mills mall to eat at the Rainforest Cafe.
I have never taken Ace there so I was really excited to go there with him. They also have a cool play area that he was finally big enough to play at so I figured that would have been a lot of fun for him.
They sat us next to a big aquarium, totally awesome. Ace was so into the fish that he decided to try to feed them his cheerios and by feed I mean throw them at the tank so we had to promptly take them away.
Ace got really excited when he heard the animals come to life. We weren’t sitting close to any but he could hear them and he really liked it. He also loved the monsoons. We were near the bar area and they have rain around it so he loved that as well.
After that we Ace played and was so freaking cute. He loved being around all the kids and going up the stairs and slides.
Sunday I was meeting up with my sister, bestie and my sister’s bridesmaids for another dress shopping trip. She is doing different colors for all our dresses so we were pretty hysterical trying to find dresses in the colors she wanted and some of them were just hideous. We have our styles picked out but just trying to see the colors together in these awful dresses was entertaining.

I am so excited, tonight we are heading north to Daytona to see one of my besties! I just got to see her the other weekend but since we live about 4 hours away it is always so exciting when we get to spend the weekend together with our families. I am hoping we can get a picture like the one above again this year, that one was taken a year ago so I would love to be able to get the same pose from the kids. We have tried to get it before but lets just say with Ace on the run and the girls trying to help us get him to hold still it was a hot mess.
Our husbands will be going to the Daytona 500 while we do girlie things and hang with the kids. We will also be celebrating her husband’s birthday Saturday night, Happy Birthday Jaime!
I know a lot of you have been following my shop Au Natural Baby Boutique on Facebook and saw the new dresses that I will be getting in! I am so excited to start offering women’s clothing now. Since my orders are pending, which means they just make sure what I ordered is in stock and then they will send it, I can not take preorders at the moment. I know one of the dresses was on the iffy side if it was still in since I had it in my cart for awhile but I believe the rest are a sure thing so hang tight and when I get the confirmation that my order is on the way I will gladly take preorders for all my lovely fans out there!
If you haven’t checked out my Facebook pages go do it now! I update them often and you can communicate with me a lot easier on there than on here or on email.
For those of you who are wondering about the dresses here is a sneak peak!
With spring and summer right around the corner and the fact that Florida is already super hot I decided to check out Pinterest and see what was out there. We all know the chevron print is totally in and I found the cutest dress! This Navy Chevron Print Belted Dress is to die for! I love this for dinner out with friends or a date night. It also is the perfect dress for lunch with your girlfriends because it is light and airy which means you won’t feel over dressed.
I also wanted a pair of Boyfriend Jeans for running around running errands. It is a good compromise between shorts and regular jeans, don’t you think? You can still manage to look put together and casual all at the same time. When it comes to going out at night just throw on a pair of simple black heels and a flowy top and you are good to go!
For a dressier look I love these Skinny Mini Skimmer Khakis, they are easy to wear and look stylish. During the day you can pair it with a simple white t-shirt and a pair of flats and dress it up at night with heels, some statement jewelry and even a khaki blazer.
I am a huge fan of loose tops in the spring and summer. It just adds to the laid back style of summer. This Chiffon Pullover in white is the perfect top to go with a pair of cut off shorts during the day or tucked into a body con skirt at night. It is a top you will end up wearing year round, guaranteed.

So what is the 5th item to add to your summer wardrobe? Jewelry of course! Jewelry can make any outfit go from day to night in an instant. Take a couple of bangles and throw them on for a fun daytime look, add a statement necklace or ring to the look for night. Want to draw attention to your face? Add a pair of statement earrings. Gold is very in right now so don’t be afraid of it.
Back to Glossy Box, this month’s theme was Winter Survival Kit and it is called The Man Repeller. Already in love with the fabulous attention to details this box has. First of all the little silver box is freaking cute and inside is a little note that makes you feel like this box was sent with love from one of your besties. It also comes with the Glossy Box Magazine which has all the latest trends as well as beauty tips.
Next up are the awesome products.
Here is the detailed list…

– Sumptuous Extreme Last Multiplying Volume Mascara Sample

I would say all of that is worth the $21.00! 3 full size items and 4 samples is pretty good. The mascara sample is a perfect size for carrying in your purse.
