Summer is just a few weeks in for us in San Diego, and no matter what mom I run into they are always saying the same thing, “Is it September yet?”  The kids are clearly winning for many reasons.  They are running wild wanting to go go go into some crazy unstructured adventure.  It’s fun for us moms, but sure can be tiresome tending to the wet towels, forever opened cabinets, dishes piled, sand, sunscreen, cooking meals, and laundry tripling for some crazy reason.

Great moms take on these little people head on and are able to create some sort of summer structure in their little lives.  It’s what I do best – set the rules, and create routines.  I surely can function in chaos, but not in any mess.  While I write out the summer  structure of our home, I want you to take a break and dive into my friday favorites this week.  These dream boards are a nice little escape from our summer day-to-day.  I hope they create inspiration for your next outfit or renovation of a special space at home.

Happy Weekend my friends….. and don’t forget to create just enough structure for the little ones so you too can relax a bit!!!

  1. Thank you for posting this. During the summer madness, I like to bath in the Chanel Bodywash. “Chanel, Chanel, take me away…”

  2. I love all the outfits! Especially the palazzo pants and the Charlotte Russe white sandle outfit! You might see me in one of these outfits when I atrive San Diego next week! Lol
