Polka Dot Linen Top for Summer

Linen is one of my favorite fabrics to wear in the summer in North Carolina because of how lightweight it is! I spotted this polka dot linen top at Old Navy recently and immediately purchased it (it’s currently on sale here). It’s the perfect top to wear with shorts, sneakers, and a fun headband (I’ve talked about my love for hair accessories here) during the weekend. I’ve also worn this top with a pair of black pants and flats to work during the week because of how versatile it is. What do you think about linen?

4 Ways to Wear a Barrette

I was hesitant about the barrette trend at first, but I’ve definitely become a big fan! It’s a fun way to switch up your hair especially when you have shorter hair. There are so many fun barrettes out there now, but the pearl ones from Amazon are my favorite (you can shop them here). Here are 4 ways to wear a barrette this summer:

1. Two pearl barrettes stacked together:

The Affordable Dress You Need for Summer

I’ve mentioned it before, but Amazon has been my go-to place for pretty much everything these days! This also includes shopping for clothes, and I only purchase pieces that have Prime shipping with free returns. You never know what the quality and the fit of the clothing will be like when it’s coming from Amazon, so free returns is definitely key. I purchased this affordable dress for our trip to Nashville because I love the way that it looks with Cowboy boots. I really like the color, the material, and the tie around the waist and it pairs perfectly with sandals too. It’s definitely a piece that I keep reaching for, and it’s under $25 which doesn’t break the bank either. What do you think about clothes from Amazon?

Charlotte’s Schedule: 19 Months

Charlotte's Schedule: 19 Months-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic

It’s been a little while since I shared Charlotte’s schedule (here are her 3 month, 6 month, and 10 month schedules)! I found reading other children’s schedules to be really helpful when trying to come up with one that works for Charlotte and for us. It’s hard to know at first when they should sleep and eat, especially because it changes so much during the first year.

The biggest changes in her schedule are that Charlotte started drinking whole milk at around 12 months, and also dropped her morning nap at around 13 months. Here’s what we have found works for us and Charlotte at the age of 19 months:

 

7:30 AM-Wake up for the day

8:00 AM-Breakfast

10:00 AM-Snack

12:00 PM-Lunch

1:30 PM-4:00 PM-Nap

4:30 PM-Snack

6:30 PM-Dinner

7:30 PM-Bedtime routine which includes a bath and a bedtime story (you can find our favorite books here and here)
