This week has been pretty amazing! Productive mornings have made for plenty of time to play in the afternoons (at the pool of course!) But our summer days are numbered friends. There are now only 10 days until we head back to school. We are planning to start our first week with half days to help ease the transition, but school is school!
However, as much as I hate to say it, I think we are ready. Summer has and will continue to be great, but we’ve been done with school for nearly 3 months now. It’s time to head back.
Let’s take a peek at this weeks Friday five!
Bathing Suit Capsule
I’ve never been into the idea of a wardrobe capsule, I need choices, until recently… when I decided to make one for my swim wear!
I snagged this top for $5 at Target.
It took me a while to figure out my swimsuit style and I finally did it! Two piece tankinis, preferably with tops that have different strap styles so my tan lines are always changing 😎 . After wearing out some of my swim wear that I’ve had for a while, and deciding I really didn’t love other pieces I have, I started putting together a capsule.
I bought this top for $8 at JCP
I now have 5 pieces (3 tops and 2 bottoms) that can all be mixed an matched. I would LOVE to add one more pairs of bottoms to the mix but that is dependent on me finding the perfect shade of bright purple.
This is probably the only kind of capsule I could ever rock and is it really “capsule like” to have several pieces of swimwear anyways?! Isn’t the point of doing a capsule to minimize things?
Do you mix and match your swimwear?
The girls have spent the last week attending VBS and they’ve been having the best time. I’m not going to lie, I’ve had a pretty great week too 😉 . It’s been fun to drop the girls off and have some time to do whatever I’d like durring the day time hours. I guess this is what our life would be like if we didn’t home-school 😆 . They are super sad that today is the last day, but super excited for their music performance and ‘Family Fun Night’ this evening.
Lately I have been using the money saving app more and more. It is a great way to save money on name brand purchases without clipping coupons. One of my favorite current rebates has been this.
Buy one box of family size Cheerios and another box from this list ….. and get $3.75 back. The cereals have been on sale for 3.64. So when all is said and done I get two boxes for 3.53 and I could save even more if I took the time to clip coupons! It is a fantastic app and hardly take any time to use, especially since the recent update.
Did you know that National S’more Day is coming on August 10th? Last year I participated in a s’more recipe blog hop and I may or may not have something similar in store for Monday. So mark your calendar for August 10th and get ready by checking out some amazing s’more inspired posts.
Like these cookie bars that I shared last year. NOM!!!
