PJs All Day | 9 Cute & Quirky Pajama Sets Under $30







I'm a sucker for a cute pajama set. Like, seriously, I have to control myself in the sleepwear section and I probably purge my own drawer at least twice a year. As much as I value the comfort of an old camp t-shirt and sweats, there's just something about a classic, button down pajama shirt that will always make me happy. Add a cute saying or quirky print to the mix and you can really consider me sold!

I just love these egg print pajamas from Forever 21 (aff. link) so much. They make waking up in the morning a little more tolerable and are actually pretty comfortable. I went with a medium (which is my regular size at F21) and feel like I have plenty of room. They're silky and comfy and actually wash really well--I haven't noticed any fading or pilling in the material and I wash them on a normal cycle and dry them on low with everything else! Such a great purchase and under $20, so you totally need a pair (or two)!

Pretty as a Peach | What To Wear While Peach Picking


Warm, humid breezes, chirping cicadas, and the sweet smell of fresh, juicy peaches in the air--summer is officially in full swing! We've been on a mission to do more this summer since the kids are starting to really enjoy different outings, so this week we're crossing a new one off the list: Peach Picking!







OUTFIT DETAILS

Straw Bag // Target
Boater Hat // Target (old, similar here)
Sandals // Target (old, similar here)
Sunglasses // TJ Maxx (similar here)

We headed to our favorite local orchard, Eckert's, for the opening weekend of peach picking! The kids always have such a blast at their Belleville Farm and their new Boyd's Orchard in Versailles KY! I've picked many fruits in my day, but this was my first time picking peaches and y'all know how much I love a theme, so I just had to have this precious pink seersucker top from The Pink Lily Boutique! The lightweight material made it perfect for the humid summer temps and who can pass up these darling bow details? Love!






If peach picking is on your summer bucket list this year, I can't recommend this seersucker top enough; it's one of my favorite materials for summer and such a classic. Oh, and this off the shoulder style? They're actual sleeves, which means no constant adjusting necessary! The Pink Lily has so many cute summer tops available and all at great prices. Y'all know I'm a budgeting babe, so a boutique this cute that I can afford is a game changer!

Check out some of my other summer style favorites from The Pink Lily Boutique below:


Are you planning any peachy excursions this summer? Peach season only lasts a few weeks, so hurry and snag one of these adorable Pink Lily pieces--you'll look as sweet as a whole peck!

How to Host The Perfect Baby Shower!

Are you planing a baby shower? Looking for a new and exciting way to celebrate a new little bundle? I've partnered with Basic Invite to share how you can be the hostess with the mostest right from the start!

First things first--pick a theme! Consider your guest list. Are you inviting ladies only? Is this a shower for mom and dad? A family affair? No matter what your party plans are, Basic Invite has a custom invite to cover it. Here are a few of my favorites:


Second, it's time to choose an invitation! Basic Invite has a wide array of invitations for every occasion and theme. There are even neutral baby shower invitations for those mamas who are patiently waiting to be surprised! Don't love the invites the way they are? Basic Invite has an almost unlimited choice of colors for you to completely customize any invitation on their website just the way you want it! Once you select your design online, you can customize each element with one of over 180 color options in an instant preview. Use pinks and purples to make your safari baby shower invitations fancy and feminine or opt for shades of grey and yellow to keep things gender neutral. 

PRO TIP: plan your invitation colors and shower theme around baby's nursery theme and all your guests will be able to bring gifts for baby that mom will love!


Ready to mail them off? Don't forget the envelope! You can choose from over 40 different color envelopes to wrap your invitation up with a little extra pizzazz! You can even allow Basic Invite to do some of the work for you by taking advantage of their Address Capturing Service--simply share a link on Facebook (or your choice of social platform) where you can request all of your potential guests' address information. It will be safely stored on your Basic Invite account and can easily be selected during the checkout process so your envelopes are addressed and ready to go! This is such a great way to have all of your mailing information in one place and also tick one more item off your hostess to-do list!


Third, it's time to discuss the details! No shower is complete without a few fun games and entertainment! Basic Invite even has you covered there--just check out their fun Baby Mad Libs or Baby Song Contest printables and get ready to have a blast with all of your guests. It's a great way to get conversation flowing, too, for parties where not all guests know each other. You can also find printable monthly onesie stickers (which make a great gift!) and small stickers to add the perfect finishing touch to any party favor.

One last thing: want to really step up your hostess game? Why not think ahead for the mommy-to-be and add some custom thank you cards to your invitation order? She'll be so grateful for the reminder (trust me, overwhelmed is an understatement to a new mom!) and it'll take one more item off of her growing to-do list, too! Talk about the hostess with the mostest!

Basic Invite is currently offering 15% off with code 15FF51 so you can grab your invites, envelopes, thank you cards, and even your baby shower gift all in one place, for less! I really love how Basic Invite makes everything so easy and tailor-made just for you! I'll definitely be ordering my Christmas cards (with FREE recipient address printing!) from them this holiday season! I might even have to come up with a few more reasons to throw a party in the meantime! What will your next party be?

Red, White, & Gingham








Happy July, y'all! Time to break out the stars and stripes, amirite? I've probably got 100 different things in my closet that could work for Fourth of July outfits, but this $3 gingham find from TJ Maxx could not be passed up! I love the pom pom details and the lightweight seersucker fabric. Best part is it works all summer long, not just for the holiday, so I can easily wear it again shamelessly!

SHOP THE LOOK

Since this top was a TJ Maxx clearance find, I linked a few other affordable gingham tops for you to check out for the rest of your summer festivities! We've got peach picking and *hopefully* a day at the lake in our future, so I'll definitely be needing some more fun summer patterns in my closet.






Who else has a full day of fun planned for tomorrow? We're watching the parade first thing, then checking out the carnival and having a picnic before heading home for a relaxed dinner on the grill and fireworks on the lawn. Then we're ending the night with the local fireworks display on the river! It's my favorite part of the day and I've got a bottle of rosé waiting for me to enjoy during the show!


Hope you all have a safe and fun-filled Fourth of July! Let's remember to thank God for all of our freedoms and pray that our leaders will look to Him for guidance in running our great country! God Bless the USA!
