Off-the-Shoulder


We are headed back to Texas today. My heart is a little broken that our California vacation has come to end. We spent most of our days on the beach (we visited seven in five days) relaxing and soaking in the sun with our good friends. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Monday we spent 13.5 hours at Disney and California Adventures and closed the parks down. My friend had her pedometer with her and we ended up walking 15 miles, 35,000+ steps and burned over 3,000 calories. Let's just say that I am still hurting today and could barley walk Tuesday morning. It was worth every single ache and pain. Thank you Sharon, Tommy and your three precious boys for all your hospitality. California would not have been the same without your generosity and crazy memories we made along the way. And thank you Audrey, Tiffany and my blogging soul sister, Jenn for meeting up with us during our stay. Getting to see my blogging buds was icing on the cake. Unfortunately, we are now back to reality and in full back to school mode. How did this happen?

Marshall's Top (love this and this) // Old Navy White Cut Offs // Forever 21 Wedges (option here and here) // Forever 21 Tote // Kendra Scott Tassel Necklace // La Mer Watch c/o (option here) // Gorjana Ring c/o // Wrenn Jewelry Ring c/o // Costa Sunglasses (option here

I wore this off-the-shoulder top and white cut off shorts during our last day in San Diego. The top was another Marshall's last minute find before we left. The $14.99 price tag couldn't be avoided. It can be worn on top of the shoulders too and still looks cute. This will be great way to wear it when the summer months have ended. I loved the pattern and lightweight material and hoping to add another one to my closet soon. Below are a few I have my eyes on.

Hi Shanna
You look super pretty in your off the shoulder look!!!
When I took my older kids to Disney Land I too was soooo sad when it was time to go home! I am looking forward to when I get to take my two younger kids (which obviously weren't born when we took our other two girls)!!
See you soon.

I love this top! Great color for you! Disney is our favorite place although we have never been to California. If you ever head to Disney World, let me know. I can help you plan. We should work there;) I hate to see summer end too. I have an eighth grader this year - makes me cry. But we can always look forward to next summer!! Susan

What a great look on you, not that anything isn't great but really liking the slight boho vibe. Love the pedometers for keeping us motivated, I use a fitbit now and its amazing how many steps we take on vacations.
