Favorite Summer Accessory

Pssssst… I have a secret…I play favorites. But really, don’t we all have a favorite kid? Oh no, I’m just kidding. What I meant to say was, don’t we all have a favorite clothing item or accessory? I do.

It’s my round straw bag! I found this one on ThredUP, it’s by Talbots.  And, since I love this so much, I wrote up a blog post about where to find similar bags over at Fredericksburg Parent.  Everyone needs a cute straw bag.  And, while it may seem trendy, I think straw bags are always ins type, especially for warmer weather seasons.  Although, I am tempted to use mine into fall, and I just might because if you love it so much why not? I mean I love wine and that’s year round… LOL.

And yes, I pretty much use this bag with almost every outfit.  It’s neutral enough that it works.  Join me in this love affair and head on over to Fredericksburg Parent and read my post.  Let me know if you order one of the similar ones that I found!  Let’s be straw bag friends…that’s the best kind of friends. 🙂


And, local friends, don’t forget to grab a copy of this months Fredericksburg Parent magazine! Find my column! This month is about date nights and how to sizzle (with your outfit, of course, not because of the actual dreadful heat.)  Or, visit the online version, here.

What’s New To You?

Hey everyone! Welcome back.  Anyone else feeling like this summer is dragging a bit? I do. Usually when mid July hits, I start feeling a bit…tired.  Tired of the routine, tired of the constant kid noises, tired of all it. It’s about this time that I’m ready for the kids to go back to school.

To break me out of the summer funk, I decided to write this week’s blog post all about a few new pieces in my closet, and a few new beings in our house… head on over to Fredericksburg Parent to get the scoop.


Here’s a hint…

The babies. Apparently, they love the stairs. #kittens
