Last week turned out to be very eventful! It started with a busy schedule at home and at work (we hired a new babysitter and are changing our routine slightly so its been a transition for everyone). Then on Wednesday evening I was gardening with the boys for an hour (ONE HOUR) and the result was the discovery of a tick bite and a poison ivy outbreak. I didn’t realize I had touched poison ivy, so on Friday when I first developed a small rash on my neck and around my eye, I assumed it was a reaction to a new face oil. It wasn’t until Saturday morning when I woke up that I knew something was wrong. Half of my face, neck, and stomach were covered and it was SO itchy! In between errands for Mother’s Day I went to urgent care and was prescribed a 10 day course of steroids. PHEW! I’m still itching while I write this but oddly enough I have to say I ended up having the nicest day on Sunday. It was rainy and cold but we hosted both of our immediate families for dinner and everyone had the best time. I cooked which kept me busy and the boys were so happy to have everyone over. Another highlight last week? The luncheon I attended for the launch of Persifor’s new collection. Alex the founder is a true visionary and it was amazing to see her vision come to life - a collection inspired by Cartagena, Columbia.
Today I’m sharing two of my favorite summer accessories and a great way to refresh your wardrobe. While on the topic of accessories I have the share that I have been wearing these sandals non-stop. They are so comfortable and go with everything!

Lately I’ve been loving the addition of a hat to my outfit. Not only is it a practical solution to keeping the sun out of my face, I love the contrast of a structured hat with a beach dress…
