Can we all take a minute to slow clap that athleisure is trending?! WHOOP! Comfy and cute is the name of the game. I think the key is finding neutral items that fit you well paired with some fun pieces.

ON TOP:

Ya’ll know I love a good graphic t-shirt! The vintage ones can cost a fortune, so I was super happy when I found this one for $8. (Wearing a size small for reference.) If band tees aren’t your thing, a basic t-shirt is a wardrobe essential. When it’s cooler throw on a denim jacket on top.

ON BOTTOM:

Go with a comfortable bottom that can take you from gym to errands. I love a jogger or a yoga pant. I’m wearing these distressed joggers that are $13! They come in a few other color options as well. Very lightweight so great for spring.

SHOES & ACCESORIES

I love carrying a big tote so that I can fit all of the boys things as well as a pair of slip on sandals for after a work out, etc. This grey one is under $10 and such an awesome find. You can shop it HERE. It comes in black and several other color options as well. I love adding an easy slip on sandal or a fun pair of sneakers and then some large oversized glasses. (Hiding those tired mom eyes, HA!) No but really, a large pair of sunglasses always seems to make a spring athleisure outfit look more chic.


Get This Look:

This entire look is from Wal Mart. Everything I’m wearing is under $30. I was so impressed with the spring collection. They’ve also added a premium designer shoe line with Lord & Taylor. SO many good options..you can shop them HERE. They carry some awesome brands like Ray Ban too. Everything shipped free and fast.

Best Finds On Amazon For Spring

Best Finds On Amazon For Spring

I’ve been scouring Amazon like a crazy lady lately and finding some really great deals (and dupes!)

If you haven’t checked the new look for less section.. you can find it HERE. It’s tons of designer look a like items, and several are Amazon finds.

Laundry Detergent– I’ve shared this before, but there is something about this fresh scent in spring that just can’t be beat. It will make your whole house smell amazing while you are washing items, and impress any guest when you wash your sheets in this. Since it’s a little bit pricey I use it on sheets, blankets and items that go several times in between washes. It lasts me a very long time this way.

Marble Diffuser– I ordered one of these to diffuse our lavender essential oil at night and immediately ordered two more for the main living area.

Lip Mask-– I didn’t even know that I needed a night lip mask, but it is SO GOOD.

Tan Sunglasses-– The look so much like the Celine version and our under $10.

Clear Tote Bag– This looks JUST like the Staud version, and comes in multiple other colors as well. Such a great piece for spring and summer!

Barefoot Dreams- The softest blanket you will ever own! It is a splurge, but it’s just that good. These are always sold out, but there are a few left in stock here!

Spice Rack (Stadium Style)– Spring cleaning time is here! This $9 spice rack totally transformed our cabinets.

Make Up Organizer– It’s made for travel to protect your make up from breaking, but can be used anytime. $18.. but seems like it should be much more for the quality.

Lululemon Sports Bra Dupe– Comes in several other colors as well. It runs just a bit small.

Statement Earrings-Perfect for spring and under $10. Make a great little gift for a friend as well.

Shopbop Sale: What You Need

The Shopbop Sale is here! Everything is 20-25% off using code EVENT19 and it’s the perfect time to stock up on everything you need for spring and summer.

These denim shorts are the best! They are actually long enough to cover everything that they need to. A total staple item you will wear all spring/summer.

Two slides I’m loving for spring are these and these. Both under $100 and neutral enough to go with everything.

If you’ve been wanting to splurge on a pair of Golden Goose sneakers, now is your chance! There are several options on sale HERE. I’ve got a whole post on sizing and the different types of Golden Goose that you can check out HERE.

The bag of the summer is on the sale here! It was one of the first things I added to my cart. You can shop it HERE.

spring activities to do as a family

We are absolutely loving the spring weather! It’s important to us to spend lots of family time together creating memories. We are always out so I’v compiled a list of ideas for fun spring activities to do as a family.

While you are out and about.. here are some adorable little spring outfits too. (I just can’t help myself when it comes to matching them…)

The Mommy & Me Matching Outfits

You can shop my denim jacket HERE. I’ve had so many denim jackets in my day, and this is far superior to any other one. It is the perfect amount of distressing, so insanely soft and the company that makes it is charity based with an amazing mission.

The boys denim jackets were $20 and perfect for spring! You can shop those HERE. I am loving this baby Levi’s trucker style baby denim jacket too. It’s currently on sale for $33 HERE.

10 Spring Activities To Do As A Family
