A couple days ago I posted about simple outfits which is still on my mind. I shop a lot, and sometimes I buy things for one specific event or outing and then hardly look at it again. (Such a waste!) So my end of the summer, going into fall, goal is to focus on key pieces. Key pieces can still be fun and bright and exciting, but I need pieces that I’ll see a future with!
I’ve already shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early, but I keep going back because so much of what’s on sale are those key pieces I’m talking about! How pretty are these statement earrings from Kendra Scott, and can’t you just see yourself grabbing and throwing everything into this tote! I just might have to re-shop the sale!
What a week! I know I’ve been saying that every Friday for the last couple of weeks but seriously my life has been so busy. Work has been busy, life events have been busy, and quite frankly I’m exhausted. All I want is a weekend to lay out at the pool with a stack of magazines and some sweet tea. But that will have to wait!
Today I’m headed to watch my little sister graduate high school and then I’ll jump in the car and head on up to New York where I’ll watch my brother graduate college! Then early Sunday morning I catch a flight down to Orlando for a work conference. Who needs sleep!?!
But one thing, regardless of how busy I get, is my attraction to hot pink right now. SUCH a good summer color and pretty much looks banging on anyone with a little bit of a sun kissed skin. And if you’re like me and haven’t had a chance to get to the pool this summer yet, I swear by Neutrogena Micro Mist Sunless Tanning!!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I’ll talk to you on Monday!
It is almost Memorial Day weekend which means I’m sure a ton of you are packing your bikini and hitting the road toward the beach! Dewey/Bethany/Rehoboth are the beaches that most DC’ians go to this weekend, which means avoid 50 at all costs! But you if you’re going to the beach, a lake, or just the grocery store straw totes are the perfect bag to grab for this time of the year. I love how straw bags are no longer the itchy, can only be used to store beach toys bags, but now a statement. Have fun with a dip-dyed tote or one with parrots like the Vera Bradley bag above. I’m loving the Tory tote… neutral yet patterned. My kind of straw bag!
It’s official… I’ll be moving mid April! Its so bittersweet as I love the place I’m now, but it’s time to move onto the next apartment! Probably the only thing I like about moving is decorating. Finding those little accents that make a place a home is so much fun! I’m definitely attracted to metallic and metals right now so these gold pieces might soon be purchased!
With the month of love (February) right around the corner I wanted to prep for a fun girly Valentine’s Day look. I’m a big fan of pink & red together but right now I am loving the pale blush tones out there. Add a little leopard, some sparkly earrings and you are good to go with this dress… what a beauty!
Jumpsuits are an item that I’ve always loved but never tried on given that I’m not even close to model height [or model thin]. I just assumed that the pants would be too long, the top too baggy or even worse- I’d look like a stuffed sausage. All that changed when I walked into Anthropologie and saw this number hanging there. The material, cut, color, wide leg — it was everything I ever wanted in a jumpsuit! As soon as I tried it on [and it fit] I walked right over to the registar and out the door without a second thought! It’s seriously so comfortable and versatile. I can wear it to brunch with heels, walking around town in flats, to a BBQ, date night, movie night in… where ever, whenever!
