-------DETAILS-------



Today's look is inspired by vacation!  Ours is a little less than three weeks away and to say I'm counting down the days is an understatement :).  I love this dress because it can be very versatile.  Use it as a dress (like here), dress it up with these heels (these are beautiful sandals too) and this belt or... dress it down with gladiator flats (these are $33 and leather!) or even sneaks (yes, I said "sneaks").  No vacation would be complete without a summer tote.  I love adding a pop of color with this nail lacquer.  The color is gorgeous and long lasting!

What's on your vacation packing list?  Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I wore this look to a double birthday dinner night.  My two best girlfriends had birthday get togethers on the same night!  One was a surprise party, both were so much fun.  I am blessed to have wonderful girlfriends.  One has been a good friend for 18 years and the other I've known since I was 3 (you can guess on the math).  They are friends I can always count on and when we're together it's like no time has passed, we just pick up where we left off.

Who loves turquoise for summer?  Or really any time of the year..!  You may have seen me wear this necklace on Instagram.  I can't stop wearing it because it's so gorgeous and just under $50!  It's a great statement piece with a simple tee or a beautiful summer sundress. The best part is it's very light for a statement necklace!  When I spotted this off the shoulder top at Loft I knew it was a piece I wanted in my closet (I actually bought the white and black!).  I'm also loving this boho top!  I know I've been living in these jeans, last seen HERE (these white skinny jeans are just $64), but they are seriously comfortable.  Since the weather was less than par in western PA, I wore them A LOT!  We are back in Philadelphia and although I miss my family, it's good to be home!

Thank you for reading.  Have a wonderful day friends!

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  My apologies up front but this will be a short write up today.  We had a great weekend wrapping up visiting family, a family wedding, and then a killer drive home (took longer because of an accident).  We are praying that everyone involved in the accident is ok.  However, I'm popped, and have SO much to get done today.  While we were gone our area had a terrible storm and left our house without power for 3 days.  Hence everything in our refrigerator will be in the garbage.  Good time to clean out the fridge, major grocery shopping is in order, and tons of things to unpack.  

So with all that said.  Ok, Monday... Let's do this! :)

Weekend Casual

DL 1961 boyfriend shorts

jcrew stripe shirt

jcrew fedora

jcrew casual shirt

star mela clutch

jcrew leopard clutch

dl 1961 boyfriend shorts

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

J.Crew shirt  ||  DL1960 shorts via Nordstrom (visit their site for Summer Clearance, up to 40% off!) ||  J.Crew sandals (on sale!)  ||  Star Mela clutch  ||  J.Crew hat  ||  Ray-Ban sunnies  ||  Julie Vos bracelets  ||  Nars lipgloss "Turkish Delight"  ||  Olivia Palermo X Ciate nail lacquer "Nantucket"



Happy Friday!  Last week was a bust with sick kiddos and being stuck in the house with days of rain.  But this week has been MUCH better!  My kiddos are on the mend, we've had a few days of sunshine, and I've been able to get together with friends who I only get to see a few times a year.  We've had dinner, happy hour, lunch, and time at the pool.  Thank goodness for girlfriends right?  :)

This look is all about weekend casual.  I've been living in these shorts (and THESE) this summer.  I paired it with this preppy shirt which can be dressed down or up with a pencil skirt for work, or a chambray skirt (I recently bought this skirt) for another casual look.  The other piece I haven't been able to stop wearing are these sandals!  I never thought I would wear something like these I absolutely love them (not to mention they are on sale!).  Who doesn't love a Fedora in summer?  It's perfect for those humid days!  Throw up the hair in a pony, put on a hat and you're ready to go!  This J.Crew hat is a staple, but then I found this fedora for just $13!  Isn't it so cute?

Happy Wednesday!  July 4th is right around the corner and it's a special time for us.  My husband's birthday is actually July 3rd and so we have a lot to celebrate.  Instead of a casual look for the Fourth I decided to go with something more dressy.  But I love how you can dress up this maxi or down with even a pair of Converse!  I think if I would purchase this dress I'd have my tailor do a high/low hem on it.  Wouldn't that be gorgeous?  I've been eyeing up this belt at Anthropologie (they have more summer pieces up to 50% off!) for a while and it's now on sale!  How cute is this iPhone case?  Pineapples are very trendy this year and what's a better way to introduce this fun trend without going crazy :)

Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------




Happy Monday!  We were so blessed that the sun actually came out yesterday for several hours!  We've gotten so much rain visiting here in Western PA that I'm ready for the bright yellow ball in the sky!  This week's weather looks to be a bit better and we have some fun things planned.  A special shout out to my sis who took these pictures.  Didn't she do a great job!?

This was a look I was 'supposed' to wear last Wednesday for a girls night out with one of my best friends.  Alas, Ella got very ill that afternoon and plans were postponed.  Both the nuggets are on the mend and doing much better thank goodness.  I absolutely feel in love with this strapless embroidered top when I saw it and bought it right away.  I can also picture it with some boyfriend shorts and comfy sandals.  The lace and embroidery are so beautiful.  In fact all the Nightcap Clothing pieces are gorgeous!  Because the intricate nature of the top I went light on jewelry and accessories.  I wanted the top to steal the show.  These earrings (last seen HERE) are just so fun and I'm in love with tassels this season, are you?  These J Brand jeans are ahmazing.  They are so comfortable I've been wearing them alllll the time.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Thanks for reading!
