Nordstrom Love, Fire Smocked Off the Shoulder Top

Alright, y’all. The gingham, poms and off the shoulder had me hooked from the start. I’m obsessed. This top was another random Nordstrom find. It barely fits over the bump, but it’s working for now and can we all just say a prayer that poms and gingham will be back on trend next summer?! Let’s hope so!

July is almost over. August is approaching. The countdown to fall apparel is ON! I’m selfishly looking forward to fitting into normal clothes again and I can’t wait to rock booties every day. Y’all feel me?

 If you read my last post about the Chealsea28 top, you know my husband and I finally got a little time to ourselves and had a date night that he arranged himself. (shout out to Kim & Michael for watching our crazy kids!) It was much needed — more than I even realized. Life just keeps going and going and our days all start to run together. Next thing we know, it’s been months since either of us have had time alone other than the evenings where one of us falls asleep within 10 minutes of the kids getting in bed. The struggle is real.

We had dinner and then my husband asked me what I wanted to do next. Of course I said go to the mall (halfway joking) and he happily obliged. He had mentioned he wanted ice cream anyway and there is an ice cream place at the mall, so it was a win for both of us. I ended up shopping a little and getting a cardigan that I already had in pink and loved so much, so I got it in green. We then headed over to the other side of the mall for ice cream. I waddled, trying to keep up with my husband who seemed like he was sprinting for real. We had ice cream (I swore I was going to pop at this point) then we were like, “Ok. Fun date but let’s get serious and run some errands while we’re kid free.” #AdultLife

Anyway, back to this adorable little top. I paired it with my ever so faithful white jeans and my Steve Madden wedges. I’ve linked this exact top below, along with some other similar ones. This was my first time getting something in this brand and I really like it. I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for some of their other tops!

      Thanks girl! Yes, he totally could’ve just dropped me off for a few hours LOL! I guess that would defeat the purpose of date night though.
