Happy Monday, you guys! We had such a nice time with Mike's brother, Brian, and our sister-in-law, Molly, and our nieces Audrey and Charlotte visiting us for the weekend! I just wanted to share three looks that I talked about on Instagram, but I hadn't had the chance to post. Be sure to follow me on Insta (@BelleOnTrend), haha shameless plug, to see all my Instagram posts and Insta-videos where I do a lot of talking to myself and our dogs. LOL. #pureentertainment
My mom and Gary surprised me by sending this to me on Friday! I totally ruined the surprise for Anna, though, by posting it on my Insta-story. Sooooorrrry, sis! They bought it for me in Florida on their anniversary trip and sent it up to Geneva. I am obsessed.
It was the nicest little surprise and truly made my day. Thank you, Mom and Gary!!! It has adjustable straps, too, so I instantly made it a little longer. Love it!
They got it on sale for $54, but it's silk and LOVELY! I am wearing a small.
My mom (Lsob as all my friends call her, for Laura Sobotka), loves Lilly, but only buys it on sale. Makes sense!
^^My niece, Audrey, and me outside Grahams Chocolates in Geneva. Apparently this arch is something to do with Harry Potter?! IDK, but I did not like the HP books. Haha, sorry in advance to my bffs from hs, Lauren, Megan and Jamie, who are HP fanatics. LOL- I still love you girls!
^^Just had to share this pic of Mike and his nieces, makin s'mores! Charlotte has the sweat band on from her uncle and aunt's wedding-- isn't that the coolest gift for wedding guests? To keep dry when you're busting a move on the dance floor?
Audrey and I loving on the cukes that our friends Ibby and Evan gave us from their garden. SO good!
Okay, this swimsuit you guys! Such a win! I wanted a one-piece like this Marysia one, but I didn't want to spend $300+; that is just stupe (sorry if you have that one lol).
I bought a medium, and it was perfect. I did get some major wedgies, but that is to be expected from a $24 swimsuit. LOL! I would definitely buy it again in another color.
All of us enjoying the Sunset Pool!
^^ Val on the left (who, by the way was our realtor, and is incredible. Please let me know if you're moving and need a realtor!), and her daughter, Alex, in the middle! We all met at Pure Barre!
This cactus dress is from Copper Fox in Geneva! I was just raving about Copper Fox in this post because it has the most unique, adorable pieces, for the best prices! There were more in store, and it was only $33! This is a medium; I tried on the small, and it would've been fine, but I wanted it to be a little flowier!
Also, you guys know I am obsessed with these Toms. My mom tipped me off to a major sale from Von Maur. You need these in your life! They are the most comfortable heels, ever!
I am obsessed with anything "critter" print, so this cactus dress was right up my alley.
So happy Val and Alex (and a bunch of our friends and family!) could make it out to Mike's show Saturday night. He played at Even Flow, in Geneva, and he was amazing! In case you missed it on my Instastories, Mike is in a band! He plays drums and is incredibly talented. He was soooo happy and enthusiastic through the entire show. I love watching him rock out! Totally in his element :) so proud of Mike!
My co-teacher, Cat, came, too!!! So nice of her to come to Geneva to support Mike. :) I'm so lucky to have her as my co-teacher.
How cute is this cactus dress? Apparently critter cacti dresses are IN! haha!
