All Tied Up

To say life has been busy lately would be the biggest understatement of the century. Between work deadlines, motherhood, travel, home projects and everything in between, May was just the busiest month! And on that note… how is it already June?! I’m gearing up for the months ahead and getting my wardrobe ready for lots of days in the hot summer sun. Since having my son, I’ve now lost a total of 50 lbs (thank you paleo!) — which is AMAZING for my health, confidence, energy level and overall habits but it’s also a challenge when it comes to getting dressed everyday. Some of my favorite pieces are now too big or just fit awkwardly so I’ve found myself grabbing new silhouettes off the racks. It feels good to feel good about the way I look again and I’m grateful to have taken the time and effort I needed to put myself first.

When I saw this tie top, I knew I had to have it for the Houston heat. I love how lightweight and airy it is while still being structured. In the past, you’d find me grabbing all the flowy tops to hide my curves — don’t worry I still love a good flowy top — but wearing this cropped little tie-front top makes me feel like I’m embracing my new body. I don’t hate it that it has the cutest little buttons up the back either! I just bought these adorable white jeans too (on sale for only $47 right now, y’all!) and can’t wait to pair them with this tie top this weekend.

Isn’t it just the cutest little tie-front top? 2weeksnotice has a lot of really fun, feminine and affordable pieces for your summer wardrobe. This is only $28! PS, if you’re eyeing my stacked bracelets, they’re from Burdlife and believe me, they are even more beautiful in person. I can’t stop wearing them!
