Although Labor Day nearly signals the end of summer for us- that weekend felt the most like summer yet. We headed to Oliver’s grandma Jenkins for the weekend. It’s just a little over an hour away so its an easy escape but it always feels like a mini vacation. It was a hot weekend- the kind where you never take your swim suit off, you walk wet haired to the local burger stand, you lounge around in grandmas yard, you stay up playing card games and wake up early to walk along the ocean with the dogs and you forever feel warm, salty, sweaty and browned by the sun. We had a good one. Lets re-live it via this little short we made with our point and shoot.
I bought this top in black at Nordstrom Rack several months ago while visiting my parents in the bay area and I find myself wearing it constantly. I recently checked my local Nordstrom Rack and I was so pumped when I found it in white! It is seriously the perfect wardrobe staple. It can easily be dressed up or down and I love the tulip hem – not to mention it super comfy! Speaking of comfy, these heels are a pair of Steve Maddens from about 5 years ago- I dont wear them nearly enough and I was delighted to be reminded how comfortable those are as well!
Although it’s not yet fall and I will soon find myself missing summer -I cant help but feel the lure of ankle booties and felt hats. I recently picked this tulip wrap dress up at Old Navy. I like that it’s a simple staple that can be mixed and matched (bonus for you breastfeeding mamas – its BF friendly!) but I wanted to bring a bit more of my own unique style to it and make it a bit funkier. So I paired it with an ankle bootie, a wool fedora style hat, denim button down and my grandmothers silver/turquoise jewelry.

Little Boogaweezin asked me to participate in their Six Ways Style Challenge. I was to choose one item from their collection and style it 6 different ways over a series of six months. This is my fourth installment and probably my absolutely favorite so far! Follow along on their blog to check out all of my looks, as well as all the other stylish Six Ways Style Challenge mamas.
This picture below totally sums up the real me: eyes closed, super gummy smile.

UGH Obi, it’s not about you okay! Just kidding.
Can I tell you a secret? This top is maternity….and I did not buy it or wear it while pregnant! It was in the Target clearance section and I liked the simple smock shape so I tried it. It looks very much like a romper when its worn with shorts!
Necklace: J.Crew Factory
Top: Target (maternity- insert that teeth gritting eek face emoji here)
