I love wearing pretty floral dresses when the weather is warm and this one just says spring all over it!  This dress is made of thick neoprene-like fabric and just fits and flatters like a dream.  The flounce hem adds a bouncy, flirty detail while the scalloped hem is feminine and chic.  At 5' tall, the dress hits me right at knee level and while it is a little longer than I expected, I find that it makes the overall look just a little more sophisticated!  

For some more flounce-hem dress options, here are a few (especially loving this one!):

Our recent rainstorms have helped cool down temps here recently, so it was the perfect time to break out this pretty black floral dress.  I absolutely love the rosy pink floral colors against the black background and this dress just has such a classic and elegant feel to it.  On its own, the dress was a bit blousy on me so I decided to add a belt for some waist accentuation.  I wanted to keep with a flowy look so I pulled up the fabric to sit more loosely on the torse.  While it did shorten the length up a bit, the hem still passed the "fingertip test" with a good inch or so to spare and I loved the subtle billowy-ness of the chiffon fabric.  

This dress ranks up as one of my favorite SheInside finds to date (and seriously, only $16?!), but in case you're looking for more options, here are a few others I stumbled across:

Now that summer has unofficially started, I'm itching to wear white all the time!  I wore this dress over the long weekend and absolutely loved the combination of the off shoulder, crochet, and tassel details that made it perfectly on trend.  The off shoulder / cold shoulder style is hot this season and I feel like it's the ideal alternative to the strapless top look for those with broader shoulders.  The spaghetti straps up top break up the shoulders and add a subtle feminine touch while still keeping with the effortless, laid-back vibe.  I'm a definite fan!

For more off shoulder white dress options, here's a mini roundup:


The fit of this particular dress does run a little short -- I'm 5' tall and it hits me at about mid-thigh.  The dress is lined with a slip but I would still recommend wearing nude undergarments just to prevent anything from peeking through.  And while the dress length still okay for sitting down, I did have to be careful whenever I was bending over or raising my arms.  The tassel rope belt is included with the dress and but keep in mind that it does raise the length of the dress by an inch or so when used.  I've been developing a tassel obsession lately so this detail was actually part of what won me over with this dress.  :)

Meanwhile, these shoes.  I haven't worn shoes this tall in years (pre-kids, of course)!  While I was admittedly a little out of practice strutting my stuff in something this tall, I was reminded of how amazing tall platform shoes make your legs look!  :)  I love the natural, earthy tones of this shoe and for a super tall style, they actually weren't too difficult to walk in -- the thicker, stacked heel provides nice stability while definitely making a statement!  But, if you're not all about the tall heels, this one is similar and at a much more reasonable height.

Tips for Preventing Diaper Rash // Babies 'R' Us $100 Giveaway

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As a mom, my job of always wanting to find the best for my little ones never ends.  With Dylan when he was small, we suffered from diaper rash incidents and I just remember how red, irritated, and uncomfortable he was -- it was just heartbreaking to see my little baby like that!  When I was pregnant with Kennedy, I did a bit of research before she arrived to see what we could do to prevent diaper rash from happening again.  And so far, what we've been doing has been working!  Read on for my tips and as well as a product we've switched to using that has made a huge difference in our diapering situation!

It finally cooled off late last week and I was excited to get a chance to wear this moto jacket that I recently picked up.  The pink blush color is perfect for the spring and the cropped fitted style is ideal for a petite frame.  This particular one was still about 1" too long in the sleeves on me, but it's not too bad if the sleeves are scrunched up a bit when worn.   This jacket is fully lined yet still relatively lightweight with a soft faux leather.  Forever 21 is actually having a free shipping promo today (Monday) only so it's a great time to pick it up!  I've also rounded up a few other options below (all are available in a pink blush color):

The sneaker look has been especially popular this year and I've personally been loving the look of Chuck Taylors for a casual outfit.  I love that I can slip these on (it even has an elasticized heel) and the red / blue stripes is such a classic, American style!  I'll definitely be wearing these now that the days are getting longer and we're spending more time with the little ones outside -- Dylan is all about us chasing him around and these shoes actually let me keep up with him!  :)
