trending: fruit frenzy

Everywhere you look right now there's one trend that's sure to catch your eye- all the FRUIT in the form of purses, brightly patterned dresses, neck scarves, and pretty much anything else you could think of. It's such a fun trend for summer and I can't get enough! Just this morning I shot several looks featuring a pineapple and watermelon that I can't wait to show you guys soon :). And no, they weren't REAL fruit, of course. Though it was hot enough outside that I would've given a lot of money for a watermelon slice at that moment. And it's not even June...Heaven help us Houstonians and our humidity (my former English teacher Mother will be happy at that alliteration). 

What I love about this craze, aside from the obvious bright colors and fun prints, is that you can score the cutest pieces on the cheap! Most everything linked below is super affordable so you don't feel like you're breaking the bank for a trend that won't be around ten years down the road. However I promise this sweet trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon!

What are some of your favorite trends for summer? Are you into the fruit trend, too? Maybe you've got an orange crush (pun totally intended)?! I'd love to hear in the comments!

Today is a crazy busy day around the Fullwood house before we leave in the morning to go spend Memorial Day weekend with our families. It also happens to be my sweet mama's birthday this Saturday so we can't wait to celebrate her!

one dress, two ways

When I first put on The Nichole Dress, I knew I'd be living in it from now on. I'm talking about the ultimate comfy dress that also happens to be SO cute and versatile. The Nichole knows no bounds when it comes to seasons, as it's the perfect neutral color block dress that can be easily dressed up or down. When I set out to take blog photos in it, I couldn't decide just one way to style the dress. So naturally I went with two! 

The first look is how I wear the dress when running errands or just a typical day with Bear- my favorite espadrilles from Amo Luz, an oversized bag, and of course, coffee. The second look is a little dressier, perfect for a date night or afternoon meetings. I can't believe how comfortable all of the pieces from MaLyn Logic are- I seriously have never worn softer dresses. Nothing beats feeling like you're running around town in pajamas when you're actually in a super stylish little number!

first look: DRESS | ESPADRILLES | SIMILAR BAG
second look: DRESS | BOOTIES | NECKLACE | BAG

Which look is your favorite?! I can't choose but one thing's for sure- coffee makes any outfit better (as long as you don't spill it all over yourself, which I've been known to do). :)

I hope you've had a great weekend! We had family in town visiting and it's been so much fun- Bear is also excited that this is his last week of "school" before summer break. Mommy isn't quite as stoked about the no school thing but I am ready for pool days! Growing up with two parents as teachers, summer break was always an exciting time around our house. I think I still feel that same giddy feeling as May comes to a close- time for vacation, no set schedule, and lots of fun with friends. Houston summers may be brutal weather-wise but we still love them as long as there's a pool close by!
