Skirt: Club Monaco, Top: Club Monaco, Shoes: Stuart Weitzman, Earrings: Bauble Bar, Jack’s Jon Jons: c/o RuggedButts, Jack’s Shoes: GapKids

Jack and I are holiday weekend ready with our blue + white! How amazing are his little loafers and Jon Jons!? You all know my love for coordinating with Jack (I know, I took it a little far here).

This denim skirt from Club Monaco has been one of the most unexpectedly amazing additions to my closet. I picked it up the other day as I was speed shopping with the little man, and figured I could always return it if it was too out there for me.

My rule with any new piece of clothing is it has to go with three existing items in my closet to stay, and GEEZ this skirt goes with everything. The other day, I threw on this top and these sneakers with it, and instantly felt cooler than wearing my momiform jeans. The buttons on the waist are incredibly flattering, and make this skirt super versatile. Did I mention it’s breezier than wearing jeans in the summer? Alright, off my soapbox!

What are your long weekend plans? We are headed to Austin, Texas for a wedding and some serious lake time. This will be Jacks first time in the water!
