diy denim cut-offs
With the start of school last week, I’m kind of mourning the loss of summer. We had such a fun summer filled with activities and vacations, so although I’m thrilled to be back on a schedule, I am sad to see the constant fun come to an end.
Out of all the trips we had during the summer, our family trip to Scottsdale with my in-laws was probably my very favorite. We stayed at the gorgeous Westin Kierland resort
, and between the amazing pool (that was only 3 1/2 feet deep at the deepest part so our kids felt super safe), the lazy river and water slide, the Friday Food Trucks, and the amazing breakfast buffet, we were in heaven for two days.
The only downside was the killer heat, so when we weren’t in the pool we made sure to drink lots and lots of water, and also wear lightweight clothes so none of us got heat stroke. These tees
for my boys from Old Navy were perfect because they are well made and durable so they hold their shape well and look nice, but they’re also so comfortable and lightweight. And of course their Old Navy flip flops
are my very favorite. So inexpensive, comfy, and durable — they’re a staple for my kids!
And as for me, I found this pretty printed Old Navy blouse
and paired it with some cool denim cut-offs and a pair of wedges. Perfect for a casual dinner in the 100+ degree heat, but also easy to wear as we head into Fall!

Goodbye, summer — we’ll miss you!!
Also! I mentioned on Friday that some changes were coming, and another one (besides DIY Friday’s) is that I’ll be sharing a little bit of kid style a couple times a month, including a few sewing tutorials for kids clothes — I can’t wait to share them with you!
