Surf Sweater

 


 
Sorry for the lack of posts this week, especially to my few who follow regularly ! I am so grateful for you! I was on holiday at the beach. Children (and myself) just love the beach and we had a great week with family visiting. I wore this look out to a seaside dinner and since it was breezy I needed a light sweater. This sweater was previously on my wish list ( see post from June here), but I waited until the sweater went on sale and then pulled the trigger. I added these amazingly expensive looking ( but actually cheap under $17) earrings to dress it up. You can get this vintage looking surf sweater here and it's on super sale with an extra 25% off (use code shopnow). I also just picked up this ponte fit and flare dress in Navy for under $40.00. I had been needing a classic navy dress in my wardrobe that can be dressed up or down.
 
Are you shopping end of year sales for yourself or just for back to school for the kiddos?
 
Well enjoy the last few days before school starts at the beach, home, or wherever you are!

Fall Cravings - Travel in Style

Fall Cravings - Travel in Style

Fall Cravings - Travel in Style by superchicmom featuring lips makeup


As I get ready to go to the beach one last time with the family, my fall fashion magazines have started arriving. Seeing all the warm and deep colors of fall fashion are  inspiring and lead me to thinking about the good things when the leaves fall - warm cozy sweaters, hot chocolate, and travel. I put this look together for a casual fall day - perhaps getting on a plane to Florida? Or perhaps, for a cool late summer evening.

What are you craving for fall? Have any fall travel plans? Or do you live where the weather stays warm?

As always, thanks for stopping by and for staying so chic!

Best Summer Drugstore Beauty Buys

Best Summer Drugstore Beauty Buys

Best Summer Drugstore Beauty Buys by superchicmom featuring an essie nail polish

These are some products that I have been really getting use out of this summer. They are all easy to find at your local drugstore, Walmart, or Target. The Jergens Self Tanner works great giving a subtle glow that does not look orange. The Cetaphil is great for removing all of your sunscreen and makeup. CeraVe makes a great zinc based sunscreen with ceramides for adding volume and an SPF of 50. You need to rub it in pretty well but it really protects, lasts well in the water and has not challenged mine or my son's sensitive skin. Lashblast waterproof mascara is really that - it adds a blast of volume and stays put while you are swimming with your little ones. Finish off your summer look with a white polish from Essie. It goes on nicely and looks perfect with every summer outfit.

What have been your favorite summer drugstore buys?
