Bluff City Lights double teamed this month! With warm weather early on in Memphis we decided to have a fun pool day. What is more fun that silly pool floats and disco ball tumblers? Big thanks to Whimsy Cookie Company for these super fun pool accessories. I did say Whimsy Cookie Co. Yes, they are a delicious cookie boutique that also sell adorable accessories. I have ordered cookies many times from Whimsy but I didn’t know they had such cute little things to purchase too! Make sure you browse the store next time you order cookies. Most of you know one of our BCL girls, Collins, is part owner of Whimsy and she was so sweet to gift us a pool float of our choice and our disco tumbler.
Indigo provided our outfits for this shoot including our jewelry, cover-ups and hats, they also gifted us our swimsuits! You can read more about my coverup and pool side accessories in my previous post. The 4 of us Bluff City Lights girls all have very different styles and Indigo is sure to be able to make all of us happy! Don’t forget to read Megan, Collins, and Alex’s posts to see more of their individual style!
I honestly have so much fun with these girls. I always look forward to our hangouts whether we are shooting for our blogs or not! We have a little something fun for you guys too!
Enter our giveaway at the end of our post!
I am a pretty practical person so when I was looking for a swimsuit to wear I was thinking which suit would give me the best tan lines. I needed to step outside of my box and try something extra cute. I will definitely be wearing this suit a lot this summer since I won’t be able to lay out like I used to. Myles decided to take a few steps this week so I’m preparing to be chasing him around all summer. I also need a suit he can’t pull down or untie, those little hands of his grab onto anything and everything and I’m not interested in him accidentally exposing my top half to the public. This top is pretty secure so fingers crossed it stays on all summer!

Myles was with us during this shoot (I’m not the only blogging mom that brings her child every once in a while to a shoot am I??). He was such a good sport watching us while he was in his stroller. Once I got him out he loved playing in the floats and didn’t want to let go of the disco tumbler. The tumbler is actually still in my car because he loves to play with it. The reason I am writing this under a mommy confession is because this is my first summer after having Myles and trying on swim suits wasn’t as exciting as it once was. My stomach has always been one thing I have been proud of. My thighs and butt are another story, those have always been a little dimply and occasionally saggier than I prefer. This summer they are just a huge eye sore, I’d like to blame it on my pregnancy but I think the real blame is me not having the time to go to the gym like I used to. So I guess I can blame my pregnancy since Myles is the outcome and the reason I don’t have time to go to the gym. Back to my stomach, I am very happy with how far I’ve come in the last 9 months. I was 42” around my waist the morning I went to the hospital so to think I would have exact same shape is silly. When I stand and engage my core I look fine and I’m satisfied but when I sit there is no hiding, flexing, or sucking in the extra loose skin that I am left with. You can see what I’m talking about in the picture where I am hugging the flamingo’s neck (3rd picture down). It is minor and not that big of a deal but it is on my mind and something all moms probably go through and I felt like expressing my feelings with these pictures. I sure do love my little guy!
Live votre rêve!
