Donuts + Pink Walls

Donuts + Pink Walls 150 150 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
This week is bittersweet because my babies go back to school on Friday.
Wait, what?! School’s back in session already?  YES!  I cannot believe this summer is already gone.  I feel like these last few weeks have been so busy that it’s just slipped by us.  We’ve had football practice almost every morning from 7-9 am, swim lessons, baseball lessons, baseball tryouts, dance…it’s been pretty jammed packed!
While the Bubs was at football practice one morning, the girls and I ventured to our local Dunkin’ Donuts to grab some of our favorite donuts and lots of coffee for the Momma.  During our drive back we found this awesome pink wall on our Baskin Robbins!  We had to pull over and snap a few photos because you have to take photos in front of a pink wall, amiright?!
I wanted to share a little with you about a new company I recently discovered called Agnes & Dora.  I’m all about clothes that are easy to wear, not so trendy to where you only get one season out of them, and are at a price point that anyone can afford them.  The company was started by a mom out of her garage and I love to hear stories of small businesses that start like that!  I was contacted by local team, Agnes & Dora by Flucy & Lucy and we teamed up to show you my favorite piece from their collection, the frill sleeve top! The fabric is so incredibly soft and I love how versatile this piece is!  I can’t wait till cooler weather when I can pair it with my favorite jeans and olive army vest! Be sure to check them out and shop their dresses, leggings, tops, skirts, and cover-ups!

Tips from a shoe addict

Tips from a shoe addict 150 150 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
Did you know that if you wear a size 7 in women’s shoes, you can wear a 5 in girls? 
I know, RIGHT?!
I scored these adorable Cat & Jack sandals for only $5.98 the other day at Target in the clearance section!  Our clearance sections are always a hit or miss, especially in the kids department.  My girls LOVE Target shoes but we always have a hard time finding them in their sizes.  I didn’t even think to try a 5 on myself to see if they fit!  They usually have very cute colors and styles for girls so I’m glad I can take full advantage of it now!  They had a lot in size 5 to choose from too!  
So 7 women = 5 girls
6 women = 4 girls
5 women = 3 girls
Let me know if you’ll be able to use this awesome tip and if you score any great deals yourself!

all about that modest swimwear

all about that modest swimwear 150 150 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
Before I had kids, I wouldn’t have dreamed of ever wearing a one-piece bathing suit. 
Nope. Yuck. Eww. 
My, how times have changed. 😂
My insecurities win every summer as I try to find the perfect suit to cover up all the parts of myself that I hate; the extra fluff around my waist, the fact that I have a terribly flat chest, all those things that most women struggle with this time of year.  
This year, I decided that I just don’t care…somewhat.

First up is this amazing bikini & swim romper set from Doliray Swimwear c/o.

My sweet IG friend, Karli over at everyday_ellis (whom I love because she’s all about modesty), posted about an amazing swim set and I knew I had to have one.  I’ve worn this set a lot and have received more compliments on it than any other swimsuit I’ve ever had.

The second awesome suit I got was this awesome two-piece from Beverly Swim c/o.
It’s the perfect match for comfort and cute!  I love that there’s a little bit of skin in the middle but it keeps that muffin top in check. 😉✅ There’s a lot of great padding in the top to help us flat-chested girls look like we got a little sumthin’ sumthin’ up there!
She had so many great suits that it was hard to choose one.  I fell in love with this geometric floral print but these are some of my other favorites!
Last but not least is my good ol’ one-piece.
I found this LaBlanca number at TJMaxx and it’s pretty much perfect.  Paired here with my LuLaRoe Bianka from my dear friend Lisa Rossiter, it’s perfect for walking the shore collecting seashells.
