I can't believe I'm saying this, but school starts in two weeks. Ugh. Yes, this momma is having a pity party. I know I can't keep my kids all to myself forever, but I love the extra time I have with my oldest when she isn't in school. I will wipe away my back-to-school-blues (for a moment) to look back on a few of my favorite moments and the cute attire they were wearing while we lived it up. We still have time to squeeze in a few summery adventures and you bet I will bottle up every giggle, dance party and look of awe I can.
Let the rooftop dance parties commence. One of my most favorite summer memories was when I had a date day with my girls to see The Little Mermaid on stage at the Straz Center. We pulled up to the top of the parking garage and it was empty, so this momma set the camera timer to catch the memory and we just danced. We laughed and laughed because we didn't have any music, but made our own.
I L-O-V-E this new small shop I found online called Denise's Boutique. Everything is majorly adorable and majorly affordable. I know that was a lot of emphasis, but I can't say enough good things about their clothes. Although my girls are not afraid to play in the dirt, they also love to be girlie--so this pink off the shoulder to with headband (20.00) and striped jumper (17.00) did the trick.
Can't leave my little man out of the fashion fun! He was rocking this Ain't No Mama Like The One I Got tee (22.00) at one of our trips to the zoo. Remember that affordable part I mentioned above? This tee comes with these light wash, fitted jeans and they are caaaauuute! His daddy may have even wished he had a pair in his size.
These adorable sandals (37-39.00) by Baby Chelle have been with us all summer--that's huge devotion from a pair of shoes. The zoo, the park, camping and everything in between--they've been there. They are super easy for the kids to get on themselves (what?! I know!) and not one complaint about their feet hurting on our busy adventure days. Hashtag mom win!
With the twins being almost four, this summer had a lot of firsts as they are getting older. That, and we finally feel (more) in control of our beautiful chaos enough to venture out more with all three. For sweet little reminders, I adore these Stronger Than Fear, Brave Explorer and Live For Today tees by Wolf Pup Threads (22-25.00).

Is there anything better to wear to the zoo than these sweet giraffe and panda necklaces (24.99) by The Pickled Lemon? I think not. Even the zookeepers and fellow mommas had to stop to see them.
Freshly Picked, most known for their unbearably cute moccasins, has branched out into newer styles like these sandals, penny loafers, Mary Janes and even bow moccasins. The girls love the buttery soft leather feel that keeps their toesies comfy as they run about. Styles run in the price range of 40-60.00 and will transition through many seasons to come.
Living in Florida often means a trip to Mickey Mouse's house during the summer. It can be to the theme parks, Disney Springs or in this case, camping at Ft. Wilderness. Given the magic that Disney always brings to everything including a camp ground, these tees from Piggy Had Tea (20.00) were a must. If you have a trip to Disney planned, their store has so many whimsical designs for the kids and even the parents (you know you want to, so just do it!). Most styles have the option to add a bow, headband or monogram as well.
Well, if that picture doesn't explain how much we've loved summer, I don't know what will. We are sad to see it coming to an end, but will savor the memories. We might(well, for sure will) even take some of these cute clothes with us back to school.
