My Latest Snag: Sal E Pimenta Swim.
I did buy micro and mini matching watermelon swimsuits for Sal E Pimenta on sale — this for mini and these trunks for micro. (Won’t they be perfect against their inflatable watermelon kiddie pool?!) I do find this brand runs really small, FYI. There are also some really good swim sale scores from Sal E Pimenta and other similar brands at JoJoMommy! And speaking of Sal E Pimenta: I did come across this adorable duffel I should have included in my roundup of chic travel gear for the entire family.

Weekend Musings: “My Peace Is More Important.”
I sent this quote (discovered on the depths of Instagram) to a friend going through a rough interaction with someone in her life:
“Always say ‘my peace is more important’ when you find yourself reacting to something that doesn’t deserve your energy.”
Easier said than done when your emotions are at an eleven, but those words have been helpful to me in the past and I thought I’d leave them here.
P.S. The quote above feels akin to the logic behind “pressure is a choice.” I often revisit that quote, too.
Post-Scripts: Jenny Walton Inspo.
+Ladies, ladies. I saw Jenny Walton wearing this slip skirt in navy with a $39 Uniqlo sweater and I’m not above admitting I am 100% going to recreate this look from head to toe in fall. V. Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Jenny wore hers with chunky Church’s sandals, which are not really my vibe (though she totally rocked the look!), so I would probably pair with Chanel captoes or a pointed toe flat like this or this.
+Lots of great LoveShackFancy scores on serious sale here, too.
+Just discovered a cool new drapery company that customizes your order to the dimensions you need at a reasonable price — brilliant! I am actually eyeing these for micro’s room!
+We have a great utility room in the basement and I think I’m going to buy a bunch of these racks for the space.
+These pearl earrings are super cute.
+Gorgeous caftan. Would work with bump.
+My most-worn-at-home dresses includes a spectacular embroidered caftan!
+Gorgeous blue summer dress from Saloni. Actually, moving made me realize I’ve neglected the fleet of Saloni dresses I purchased a few summers ago. The way they cut their garments is *chef’s kiss.* They are somehow able to create the most gorgeous, lean, flattering lines — and I am SHORT! I am currently wearing a navy dress of theirs from several seasons ago and it makes me feel like a million bucks. Love this jumpsuit of theirs for date night (at home OR out!).
+ICYMI: these rattan bon bon earrings are a huge hit this summer!
