Friday 5 + The Perfect Summer Outfit

ruffle sleeve tee shirt (currently 30% off!) | chambray shorts (on sale for $19.95!) | necklace is sugarfix by bauble bar (sold at Target) | wedges are Vince Camuto (a few years old) linked to similar ones here and budget friendly pair here

Oh, hey Friday! This week seemed to fly by? Anyone else? We had a fun week and the weather was SO nice (finally)! Here are 5 things that made me smile this week:

1. The Zoo! I took the boys to the zoo on Tuesday with my mom, sister-in-law and her 4 month old son. I shared a few snaps on snapchat (find me @ LindsayRumple) and instastories, but only took one actual photo! We got to see the 2 new polar bear cubs with their mom swimming in the pool. It was so neat to see Camden's reaction to all the animals! He is at such a great age for the zoo now!

(I just love how he is the same size as the polar bear cub!)

2. Running outside : It was so warm and sunny on Wednesday afternoon, I decided to finish work early and go for a run before we picked up the boys for the day. I forgot how much I love running outside when the weather is nice. The combination of the vitamin D, physical activity and my favorite jams is such a mood lifter!

3. This clutch : I ordered and received this perfect leopard clutch this week and I am in LOVE! It's such a classic pattern that I know I will use a lot. Perfect for date nights or girls nights. Easy to dress up or down. And a much more budget friendly option than this one I've been coveting forever!

4. Southern Charm : You guys.. I'm addicted to this season of Southern Charm! There is just so much drama and love triangles... And I'm obsessed with Cameran on the show and if you follow her on instagram, they just announced she is pregnant with a little girl!!

5. This Face (see below) : You guys... How is it possible that my baby is 10 months today? TEN whole months! That means he will be a year old in 2 months?? I just can't believe how fast time flies when you have a baby. It is unreal. I just want to bottle up all his chubby baby cuteness and save it forever (cue the water works)! Hopefully posting an update on Bennett next week since I didn't get to his 9 month update!

That's all for this week's Friday 5! 
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Spring and Summer 'Momiform' Must Haves...

Here's the thing about 'Momiforms'... Being a mom is basically having an excuse to 'dress down' everyday (that is if you are home with your kids). Nobody wears high end, dry clean only outfits when they are hanging out with toddlers or babies. And if you do, what are you thinking?!

However, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. I still like to think that it's possible to dress comfortably and functionally in a stylish manner. What's great about the spring and summer months, is that you can wear shorts and flat sandals everyday and just mix up the tops. While I'm with my kids, my tops have to be comfortable, easy to wear and easy to wash. Enter the perfect tee shirt... There are so many great styles of easy breezy tee shirts in stores currently. AND it doesn't have to be just a regular old v-neck tee. Now, you can add a little twist, bell sleeve or a ruffle hem to make it a little more fun! 

Here are some of my recommendations to help build your perfect 'momiform' outfits for the warmer months... (click on the image to link to the item)

What a crazy week it's been! Our painters were here Tuesday and Wednesday painting most of our house. My parents watched the boys both days so they were out of the way and I could work while the painters were here. I'm happy to report that Camden no longer has a pink room and our bedroom is no longer a dark brown cave! If you caught my snaps or instastories earlier in the week you saw how light and bright both rooms look now! We landed on SW Popular Grey (which we used pretty much all over our last house in IL) for Camden's room and Bill's office. Our bedroom, master bath and the boys' bathroom is painted with SW Olympus White which is a really light, pale greyish blue! I absolutely love the color! I can't wait to style the rest of our master bedroom and share photos with you all. We also had our kitchen painted SW China Doll, which is a neutral very light cream color. We still have to paint our great room, entry way and hall ways which will be done after we have some drywalling projects to complete in the great room. But, I'm happy that 'phase 1' of painting is complete!

Now, on to 5 things I've been loving this week:

1. When I noticed I was about to run out of my daily sheets in my current agenda, I started searching for a daily agenda pad on Amazon and stumbled upon this daily agenda pad and this weekly pad (which I use now for blog planning). Both of which I am loving! I still use my agenda for keeping track of upcoming monthly events/holidays/birthdays, etc. but, it's so nice to be able to write down my daily to-dos on the daily agenda and then tear it off at the end of the day!

2. As I was searching for the above agenda pad, I stumbled across this weekly menu pad and this 'all out of' grocery list pad! I am loving using both of them and keep them by the fridge for easy access. Bill has been loving checking off the items he wants me to pick up at the grocery store. Now there is no excuse for opening the fridge, staring blankly and saying we have nothing to eat (my pet peeve).

3. I picked up a few new beauty products this week that I am loving. One is the Physicians Formula color correcting CC cream. I got it in the shade 'light/medium' which I wish I would have got the 'light' shade. I think the shade I got is a bit too dark for my complexion at the moment, but hoping that it will work better for my complexion in the summer months. It is a really smooth, lightweight, build-able coverage cream which I love!

4. I also picked up a new bronzer that I have heard nothing but great reviews about on blogs and youtube. It is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and it is definitely worth the money! It is so smooth and creamy and it smells like you are on vacation! I can't wait to use this more in the summer!

5. Lastly, I've been wanting to get a new high chair for Bennett for a while now and had my eyes set on the one from IKEA. I loved our highchair we used for Camden, but it was so bulky and the fabric liner always got SO messy and so annoying to take off and clean. I just wanted to get one that was ALL plastic, easy to clean and had a modern/sleek/minimalist look to it. The one from IKEA has been sold out for a while (at least in our area), so I just bit the bullet and got this one that is similar (and still only $30!) from Babies R Us. I love it! And now that Bennett is sitting up a lot better on his own, it is perfect for him! If any of you are in the market for a highchair, I highly recommend this one if you can't get the IKEA one.

Happy weekend and happy shopping!
