My kiddos have been back in school for 4 weeks now (time is flying by) - most days it feels good to be back into a routine. Those unstructured summer days seem like a distant memory. We're busy with soccer & flag football games and trying to enjoy my favorite season in Maine. Four weeks in with a 3rd and 1st grader, I thought I share some of my favorite products we're using during these school days.
Seriously though I love a good pair of jeans - When I'm not in workout clothes or athleisure wear, you can pretty much bank that I'll have on a favorite pair of denim - pairing it with a white t-shirt and sneakers or dressing them up for date night. I do believe that one quality pair of jeans that fits you perfectly is far better than a closet full of cheap jeans you don't love. With that said, you really can find a great pair of jeans at a variety of price points. It takes some time to find the brands and styles that best fit your body but once you do you'll wear them on repeat.
What do you do when you have a whole bunch of ripe/almost overripe bananas lying around? The kids are ALL at school right now, so I'm trying to scrub the house and continue my efforts to purge with no little people around. We have a big surplus of bananas from a soccer tournament last weekend and I'm going to use them up before they go bad or attract fruit flies (it's hot here this week).
I've been working hard to purge this summer. Cleaning out closets, play spaces and everything in between. Now that my closet has been significantly paired down, I'm in search of a few fresh pieces for the season ahead. I'm also trying hard to keep my spending down, so I'm hoping to buy a few key pieces this holiday weekend to take advantage of some great sales. Here's some items that I'm eyeing:
With school starting here tomorrow and the calendar full of the boys soccer and football games, summer is unofficially over. Things have been quiet over here as we've been busy making the most of our summer days - boating, island visits, beach outings, movie days and time with friends. There's also been plenty of refereeing my wild boys, and getting back into a routine will be welcome in some ways, but it's always hard to see these summer days go.
I've been meaning to share some of these products for a while now, and you've probably seen some of them over on Instagram, but thought I'd round up some of my favorites from this summer. There's still plenty of time to enjoy these - some you'll be using year round like my new favorite (and work-out tested) deodorant. Take a look and let me know some of your favorites.

Most days I'm just figuring it out as I go - Thanks so much for stopping by!
