Thank you Marks & Spencer for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend brands I truly love.
Spring and summer are my favorite seasons. And every year they seem to just fly by. And I hate that. This year I’m making a conscious effort to cut back on everything else I have going on and focus on the kids and having fun with them over the summer. Some people who know me are going to roll their eyes at this and say that I say this all the time. Well this time, I’m serious. These kids are growing up way too fast and I’m going to slow down time the only way I know how.
As a kid summers were a really special time for me. Not just because school was out. But because my mom was a high school teacher and my dad a college professor, so summer meant getting tons of time with them. Some summers we spent at home, some we traveled all over the world, but no matter what it was special.
I’ll always remember one year when we went to England, and my mom really wanted to get Marks & Spencer clothing, because there weren’t any in the states and you couldn’t shop online back then. We couldn’t find it so she went up to a couple of local looking guys, and wanting to sound hip by asking where the M&S was, asked where the S&M was. I can’t remember what happened next but I know she was mortified and I never forgot what Marks & Spencer was after that.
I was thrilled when I realized that M&S ships to the United States now and knew that I had to get my hands on some stuff. I ordered a few outfits for me and the kids for this summer and oh man, it does not disappoint. Usually you only get a good price or great quality, not both. With M&S you don’t have to sacrifice price or quality, you just get exceptional quality and the best price. I went with a perfect fun colored off the shoulder dress with pom pom details, the perfect off the shoulder top with floral embroidery paired with white skinny jeans, and a great maxi dress perfect for wearing to some friends’ baby showers I have coming up this summer! Oh and don’t forget the finishing touches – the cutest shoes, straw purse, and sunglasses. I also got the cutest little outfits for Tripp and Maddie Grace.

That off the shoulder dress is gorgeous on you! My favorite seasons are Fall and Winter … I know, I know … but the GA heat can be so brutal. I don’t mind the temps as long as the yucky humidity isn’t there!
