I did it!  I did it!  I actually purchased a jumpsuit and wore it out in public!  You may be thinking, "what's the big deal?"  Well, I don't think a jumpsuit works for everyone, and until I found this one at TJ Maxx, I thought the same thing applied to me.  I was nervous my hips and legs would look too big, and that I would look like an adult trying to dress in teenager clothing, but this one was perfectly loose enough in just the right spots.  I love the way the back drops (which is why I wore a t-shirt underneath), and at just under $50 I thought this was a great buy!  It's lightweight and perfect for travel and upcoming beach vacations.  Hope you all have a great weekend!  See you jet setters back here on Monday!

Last summer Rich came to me with the idea of joining a CSA.  I said "CSA, what's that?"  I went on to find out that CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, which basically means it's a way for us (the consumer) to buy local, seasonal vegetables from a farmer.  I was nursing Brody at the time and thought it sounded great because I'd be eating a lot of fresh, healthy foods and passing it onto him.  Then when he told me we were joining a start-up CSA by three Brooklynites who moved to New Jersey to begin this wonderful program, the New York born and based/frequent New Jersey shore girl couldn't be happier.  Every week we would get a huge basket full of amazing green things like lettuce, mixed field greens, kale, radishes, garlic scapes, cauliflower, tomatoes, carrots and eggs just to name a few.

We loved it and found it to be a thing we looked forward to each week....what would we get?  What meals would we cook with our ingredients?  Plus, the boys loved visiting the farm and seeing all the animals run free.

 So we decided to sign up again this year, and to treat ourselves!  In addition to the "share" of a fresh green weekly basket and eggs, we also signed up to receive fresh wildflowers, and homemade soap.

We can't say enough about joining a CSA!  It's great for the environment, it's wonderful to help local farmers fulfill their dreams, and it's a reason for our family to eat right and eat different things in a fun way! I love starting my day enjoying my weekly fresh flowers from the farm.  If you are not part of a CSA, check if there is one near you...I promise you will love it!

How can you ever go wrong with black and white?  Am I right?  Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love color, but sometimes a little black and white with just a pop of color can go a long way.  If you follow my Instagram account, you may have already seen me wear this dress when Rich and I had a date night and went to our friend's house for dinner in the city.  I knew we would be doing a lot of walking around the city both before and after dinner so I went for these gladiators sandals which are so comfy and on sale too!  I also love maxi dresses, and this one that I picked up recently is 100% cotton and feels like you are wearing pajamas.  It will be perfect to wear all summer long, or be great as a beach cover-up, and it will even transition well into fall with a denim jacket.  I love being "smart" about how I spend my money on clothes, and these pieces are not only affordable, but I know I'll get my money's worth out of them.  That's Jet Set Smart fashion!  Happy Hump Day!

Hard to believe so much time has passed already since I've talked about our trip to Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas at the beginning of last month.  Rich had to go for a work trip and we decided to tag along to visit our good friends and to show the boys the Big D.  Here are some pictures from our trip- we had a blast checking out the Forth Worth Zoo, lots of great restaurants in Dallas, and of course a bit of shopping.  We just love visiting Texas and hope to make it back soon!
