Below are my (Paige) picks for the sale this year! Can you tell I’m a mom of two now?? It’s mostly active and loungewear haha. I love a good matching set to make me feel more put together when I don’t actually get ready!
Quick post sharing one of my new favorite tees, and my three favorite ways to wear it! I’m also linking a few other oversized tees that I’m loving right now at the bottom of the post.
Tucked in with jeans.
You KNOW we live for a good basic tee. This is my go-to, everyday outfit. A tee either tied in a knot, or front tucked into some high-waisted denim. You can’t go wrong and it’s so easy!
2. Tied over a dress.
How have I not been doing this for years?! I think I’ll be wearing basic dresses & tees every single day this summer. SO much cooler (temperature wise, haha) than jeans and so comfortable! Plus, you can find them for so cheap! This one was only $14 from Forever 21. I bought it in store and can’t find it online, but I liked some similar styles below.
3. Over biker shorts.
Okay. I’m not totally convinced that the biker short trend is cute yet. And I don’t think they’re very flattering on me, but I WILL say this outfit is perfect for a hot summer day hanging around the house or running errands. These bikers are suuuper soft and stretchy and comfy. And we know I’m all about comfort.
Have I convinced you that splurging on a good quality, basic tee is worth it yet? Love that this one comes in three great neutral colors, too. It’s a little pricey, but SO worth it for how many times I’ve already worn it. Linking it along with a few others I’m loving below!

Hi! I wanted to share one of my new favorite outfits, thanks to the wide-leg crop pant trend that I am loving, and a little update on what Cal’s been up to as of late!
Cal is almost two and a half years old and has such a fun personality! He’s not quite walking on his own yet, and I feel like we’ve been saying, “he’s so close!” for a very long time now, haha. But he really does seem like he could totally do it on his own. He just needs a little more confidence! He cruises around everywhere on his little walker and is so proud of himself. We think it’s the cutest thing ever.
Cal’s little personality is still the sweetest ever. We are so lucky that he’s so nice and easy-going, because he’s also still not talking at all. It seems like it would be so frustrating to want something, and not be able to tell us exactly what it is! But luckily he just goes with the flow and is usually happy with whatever it is we think he wants. He HAS learned to communicate with us though through a few signs and hand signals and is starting to make some more sounds with his mouth, too. He says “dada,” “nana,” “mmmm,” for a cow sound (so cute), and growls/yells for a lion, sheep, and any other animal. Haha.
We have speech, occupation, physical, and developmental therapists coming every week to work with him and give us new ideas for things we can do on our own. We also still follow up regularly with his cardiologist, pulmonologist, dietician, ENT, gastroenterologist, and ophthalmologist. Cal still has his feeding tube and is on oxygen when he sleeps, but is starting to ween off both! The biggest thing we still worry about with Cal is his little heart. It’s been such a miracle that we’ve been able to put off any heart surgeries up to this point. We actually just had another 6 month follow up with his cardiologist, and his mitral valve and aortic stenosis look about the same as they did at our last check up, which is such a blessing! His doctor thinks that he will need a mitral valve replacement at some point, but we are hoping to hold off as long as possible!
Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in all the things he’s not doing, but then I remember what a miracle it is that Cal’s even here, and am so grateful for all the progress he’s made! I love being his mom and am anxious to see what he’ll be like in 5-10 years.
Since Cal’s not walking yet, I spend a lot of my time with him either playing on the ground or holding him! Comfortable clothes that I’m not adjusting all day long (like I talked about in my last post), are a must and these pants are perfect! They re super comfortable and flattering - the only two things I look for when buying an item of clothing. I’ll link a few different styles below!

When it comes to choosing an outfit for me, my number one priority is comfort. Plain and simple. This is especially true since becoming a mom, but I’ve kind of always been this way. I have never been interested in wearing heals that I can barely walk in (I actually don’t even think I own a pair of heels these days, other than wedges), and I always stay away from anything I’m going to have to be adjusting all throughout the day. I want to be able to throw on an outfit, then not think about it the rest of the day.
When my good friend Brin recently found this two piece set, we knew we both needed it. I actually have to thank her, because I would have never thought to buy this for myself after just seeing it online. Now it’s my favorite Saturday (and everyday) grunge outfit to throw on, wear all day, nap in, all while still feeling cute and put together!
I’m also now obsessed with sets! This one is a pretty good price for this company, and now I have three different outfits I can easily wear! The top looks so cute with jeans or leggings, and these pants look great with any tee tied or tucked in.
This laidback lounger set also come in four different colors! Brin and I had both been eyeing this set for a while before we actually bought it, and we’ve noticed all the different colors and sizes sell out, then get restocked pretty often. So keep checking back if you’re thinking about getting yourself one!
Also, be sure to find yourself a friend who sends you cute finds and embraces twinning! I always love it when I share a good find with someone and they end up buying it, and have no problem admitting that a lot of my fashion inspo comes from my sisters, friends, or other influencers recommending their good finds.
Linking the set below along with a few other comfy sets I’m loving! Have a great week!

Regan here! Let me first say that the photos below are not super realistic. I’m usually NOT this casual, cool and collected heading out the door when I leave the house (obviously). More like, 40 lb. diaper bag around one arm, 25 pound toddler on the other, and a handful of whatever else I can possibly carry anytime I have to venture out of the house. I know any mom can relate!
It’s pretty rare that I get dressed up in a cute outfit during the week. I usually rotate between the several colors of my favorite Madewell tee that I have, front tucked in to some high waisted jeans and call it good. Luckily, THIS COAT is a new favorite of mine, and throwing it over any outfit makes me look totally put together.
This coat has also made winter more bearable because it’s super warm! Random side note…my first couple years living in Utah were kind of miserable. I haaated it here and was determined to move back to California ASAP. Well…over eight years later and I’m still here! Utah has grown on me though. I think moving from our small, dark apartment that we lived in our first few years, and now having a home where we get natural light and can have plants in every corner giving off oxygen has made all the difference. I am still determined to move back to California, but Utah is not as awful as I used to think it was! Cute coats and booties also help 😉
