H&M Button Down

For some reason, it seems like the fall is coming as soon as the Fourth of July is over. However, I am determined to enjoy every last minute of sunshine & warmth this time of year has to offer. I have been up to the lake several times this month, but this was my favorite beach look.

I didn’t know if I was gonna be able to rock the vintage inspired high-waist style, but it is just perfectly STYLESILIKE for a curvy gal like me. This H&M button down was a solid cover-up, and I basically don’t go anywhere this summer (the bar, the office, or the beach) without wearing my Birks.


As  much as I love spending time in the sun and on the beach with my loved ones, I know we also have to be mindful of protecting our skin. Before July comes to a close in just a few days, I wanted to share the fabulous #JCREWSMARTSUN campaign. Simply tag any of your photos that feature you enjoying the sun safely on Instagram from this year’s ocean, lake, and/or pool season to do your part, helping J.CREW raise money for The Skin Cancer Foundation and the Melanoma Research Alliance. Hope you are excited to share before the month is up!

My cousin/budding photographer, Maggie, snapped these photos earlier in the summer. If you remember she also took the pictures for this blog post. Also, she is twelve. #GIRLBOSS

Erin & Allie

While Maggie & I were taking a break from swimming and playing on the beach, Allie, another one of my cousins stopped by to hang. I was honored to have Allie, THE BIRTHDAY GIRL, in my photos.

She looks more beautiful every day, and I am so lucky to have been able to watch her grow up into this smart & funny & sweet girl.

There are so many things I love in this post. I love summer, bathing suits, flowers, J.CREW, the lake, Birks…

Oh, and in case you couldn’t tell, I love my family – more than anything.
