Bikini Top / Bikini Bottom

Can’t believe I’m including a photo of me in a bikini. 😆 But GUYS. It’s so good. This is the first bikini I have ever loved. The bottoms’ wide waistband is amazingly flattering and doesn’t pinch, and it completely covers my butt, making it super mom-friendly for when I’m running after Emma and Lucy. The top is padded (which I personally need) and stays totally in place. Highly recommend! I ordered a size 6 in both and they’re great. The bottoms are a tiny bit loose around the waist but I very much prefer that with bottoms.

Oh hey, I’m back with Recent Finds! To be honest, guys, I’m kind of a mess over here, haha. The end-of-year school activities have been so much fun but between that and some big work projects, I was burning the candle at both ends for a while there. I finally got a good night’s sleep, though, and I’m back in the game!

Anyway, this week’s finds are good. Here’s what caught my eye:

New print for the ever-popular Kenzo Dress! I love this cut. I have it in two colors—the black and the blue stripe. Wonderful travel dress!

Ins’t this so pretty!? I love a dress that you can throw on and look like a million bucks. This is definitely one of them.

Gorgeous comfy sandals.

Heart eyes.

LOVE. So classy-looking; a combo of the timeless ballet flat and mule!

Okay, so Kira was over this past week wearing a Rachel Pally dress and HEAVENS. She looked gorgeous. I’d never heard of Rachel Pally before, but I’m now obsessed. I love the simplicity and the fact that the linen is super soft.

Gorgeous.

The perfect beach/farmer’s market dress?!

Oh my gosh. They have a gingham…

My wooden ducks with brass feet are sold out, but look at this all-brass duck—he’s on sale!

A really great messy mudroom solution.

I sold most of my ginger jars on Facebook Marketplace—but not all!—and am now on a very slow-paced hunt for neutral pieces to go in the top parts of our kitchen cabinets to replace. (This is very nice because I will end up SAVING money, haha.) LOVE this one I found on Amazon!

The best Jack Rogers to have ever existed. I will be including them in every Recent Finds until the fall hits. Because you need them! Totally TTS.

In brown.

Another product I’ll be including until the cows come home. I have it in ivory and a (now discontinued) olive green. It’s the best! Runs big. I have it in an XS and it’s still a little oversized, in the best possible way.

Our outdoor couch is still going strong and looks BRAND NEW. I truly can’t get over this thing. It’s survived two Chicago winters now, and is still perfect-looking. A+! Worth every penny.

This pan. It’s the BEST. It really is the only pan I need. (Of course, we have others. Mitch loves kitchen gadgets. But if it were up to me, this is the only one we’d own! Then again, we’d probably go hungry…) It was out of stock in this color but it’s back. :)

Again, this thing is a can’t-live-without piece. It looks amazing thrown over dresses or button-downs. I don’t attend weddings without mine!

Restocked in a few sizes!

Oh, my favorite. This bag is simply the best. I feel like it’s going to be the next “big tote” — But I’m not seeing it around much! I adore mine and get so many questions about it when I wear it out and about.

A few favorite home products to share. First up is my office rug. It’s the best. A bit of an investment depending on the size, but a great neutral and something that goes with nearly any room design. Adds texture to the room, too!

This is the mirror in our bedroom, which I’m so in love with. It makes getting ready in the morning so much nicer!

And this is the rug in our room. I am almost always “meh” about rugs when they first arrive, but this one was love at first sight.

This chair. I have it in my office right now but might move it down to Lucy’s now that her crib is gone. Love switching furniture around for a fresh feel!

I adore these pillows. They’re so affordable but look like $100+!

Everyone needs an airy linen shirt.

Paired with these shorts?! Coastal Grandmother; I love it.

The comfiest sandals are back in stock!

White skinny jeans that everyone needs to pair with oversized sweaters for beach nights! (Very specific.)

This cute bow skirt is a best-seller for good reason.

So our basement wallpaper got all torn up recently during some fireplace and bathroom fixes. Thinking about doing the same paper but in “sand” this round. (Ugh. Hopefully no more papering!)

THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL.

Back to home stuff. We have this in our dining room and it’s beautiful and functional.

Favorite dress of all time. It goes with me on nearly every trip!

How gorgeous?!

Easy-breezy gauze tops for days.

Okay, BRAVO, Madewell! This is so pretty.

Different cut and color.

*Adds to cart.*

I can’t do jumpsuits. I need to use the restroom too often, haha. But if you *can* do jumpsuits, this one is so cute.
