Lifestyle Steals Under

Steals Under $35: Stripes and Florals

Stripes and florals are my two favourite patterns for the summer and all year round for that matter.  I’ve gathered all of these beauties for under $35 to help make your summer budget-shopping a bit easier.

Stripes have been and will always be my closet staple you just can’t get any more classic.  Beyond that there are endless variations on stripes so they never feel boring.

There’s nothing more quintessentially feminine than florals not to mention they are a pattern that exude happiness.  Whether you like florals full on or more subtle they will add the right amount of pretty to your look.

Speaking of florals boy do I have to “stop and smell the roses” much more often.  Work has been chaotic I mean as in 14 hour days 3 straight days in a row kinda crazy.  I have been guilty of letting the stress get to me more often than it should which of course trickles down on my interactions with family.  Thus, I am trying to be more intentional and mindful with the time I do have with my loved ones because life is way too short.

One way that helps me appreciate each day is reading a devotional (such as Jesus Calling) first thing in the morning.  Actually I read the messages with my girls as we eat breakfast and this has become a sweet little tradition. The messages help me focus on having a day filled with peace no matter how that day may be going.

When working in child welfare each day brings new challenges so taking moments to simply breath deeply and refocus make all the difference.  For myself this can can be anything from chatting with a co-worker, listening to a favourite song, saying a prayer or stepping away from whatever I’m doing.  I write this as a reminder for myself as much as I do for all of you hard working women out there whether you are a stay-at-home mom or in the workforce.

Thanks for stopping by and reading!
