Mothering is a BEACH!


This weekend we headed to the beach with the babe! As soon as we sat down, he stuffed his mouth with sand. It would have been cute if he didn’t like it, but he sat there shoveling it in his mouth. We have taken him a few times when he was smaller, but this was the first time he seemed to actually enjoy it!


It makes it more fun as a parent, but also more exhausting chasing a crawling baby around. Gone are the days of laying out, listening to the waves while reading a book. Now that he is mobile I find myself dressing more practically since it’s all about comfort and moving quick! One of my favorite summer trends has been eyelet, and I was excited to find this cute blouse at Zara on sale for $25. To be honest I’m not even sure it’s a cover-up, however I wore it as such, and it was the perfect material for a day at the beach.  Unfortunately I didn’t see it on their site, however I did find it on and have linked it below, along with similar styles!

Summer’s Hottest Trend: Hair Scarves

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

WHOA! It’s been a hot minute since I have written a blog post, and BOY is there a lot to catch you up on. If you follow my @anabudget Instagram page then you know I gave birth to a baby boy back in October 2017. He is now 9 months old, has a mouth of teeth and is crawling like a mad man. It is crazy how fast time is flying by and how my heart could seriously explode with happiness.  Being a first time mom has brought me so much joy and exhaustion, taught me patience and filled our house with more love than we could ever imagine. I will be sharing more on that soon!

BUT, I know you have been waiting on pins and needles for this, so here it is: HAIR SCARVES!   giphy

This has seriously been my favorite summer trend for 2018, bringing me out of hiding to share my favorites for under $50! Below are pics of how I styled one of my favorites (from my mom’s closet) at FolkTale Winery in Carmel CA.
