It feels like it was just Christmas, and yet here were are preparing for summer! Depending on were you are, it might already feel like summer. I know it sure is hot here in Raleigh. We have already made our way to the beach for a little fun in the sun. Looking at pictures from a day trip to Carolina Beach, I realized that my beach wardrobe could use a serious overhaul. I need to get some new beach items that compliment my new “mom bod”, because we will be going to pool and beach A LOT this summer.
I have been doing a lot of browsing to find some of the cutest swim pieces this summer. And I have found some really great pieces. I think a lot of these pieces will look great on ANY body shape. I love high-waisted and one-piece bathing suits because they accentuate my waist, while hiding the extra bit of belly I have post baby. Most, if not all, of these bathing suits are under $50, because I am shopping on a budget.
I included sunscreen because I feel that sunscreen is SUPER important to maintaining healthy skin. I have been slacking with wearing the proper amounts of sunscreen but this summer it is my goal to take better care of my skin in the sun.
I was introduced to the COOLA brand about two years ago, when I got a sample in my Birchbox. It smells SO good, it is not super heavy on my skin, and its easy to apply. They have a ton of different types if sun screen, for your face, body, lips and even baby. I included the link to for these items through La La Daisy , a discount beauty product website. I 100% recommend shopping for your high end beauty products through this site. If you use code ” TANNERMMANN” for 15% off.
That yellow one piece from Belk is giving me all the “Saved By the Bell” vibes, RIGHT?

Spring is finally here! It’s the time for Easter Egg hunts, family gatherings, flowers blossoming, sun shining and rain falling. During Spring, I like to update my wardrobe, I pack away my winter clothes and start collecting Spring (and sometimes Summer) pieces. So of course with my little girl, I would do the same. I have gathered my favorite pieces from Carters into a Spring Baby Girl Outfit Guide!

I am LOVING the mix of pastel and bright colors that these Spring pieces bring. Of course I could not pass up the FLORALS, they just scream SPRING to me.

I love how versatile these outfits are, they are also great transition pieces into summer as well! I can not get enough of the patterns on these outfits, especially that toucan shirt, HOW CUTE!
If you live in a warmer climate, Spring may also mean the start of pool season. It can get pretty hot in May in Raleigh, so of course I had to include some adorable swimsuits. Ellie has the flamingo one piece, but now I want the swan one too! (Let me be honest, I want all the pieces on this list)
Anyone else’s heart explode when they see little baby shoes? No outfit is complete without a cute pair of shoes, so naturally I had to add some sandals to this list! Those Espadrille sandals are very on trend this season!
