Sweetheart Cami

May 31, 2016

Blue Moonbeam and I had a hard time getting up this morning...we spent the holiday weekend in Fort Worth with Sally, her husband (my favorite and only brother-in-law) and their two pups. It was so great to see them - super relaxing for me and like summer camp for Blue. Poor puppy is still so tired from all the swimming and fun that he's been in max nap mode since we drove back to Houston yesterday afternoon. As for me, I always feel a little bit of a struggle getting back into the swing of things after taking a few days away from my routine...the struggle feels especially real after two days of pool time and sun.

 

Mmmk, enough complaining! I’ve been excited to share this sweet little sweetheart cami ever since I got it. Silk and lace and super skinny straps – it’s even more pretty and elegant in person and I just adore wearing it. When I mentioned above about getting back into the swing of things, that also includes finding a new pair of jean shorts (re: jorts). I’m looking for a pair or two of high-waisted, not-too-tight-on-the-thighs styles that I can wear with shirts and tops tucked in…including this cami. I have big plans to wear this dainty little number with shorts, skirts and jeans (if it’s not too hot) all summer long. So today I’ll be running into Gap to try these and these. Wish me luck!

I Wish I Was Wearing…

May 30, 2016

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! When I came across this image on Pinterest, I had not realized that it was actually from Madewell, and I was quite proud of myself for finding what looked to be an identical shirt to the one in the photo. Ha - it just happens to be the exact same one! If I could, I would probably sport an outfit like this every single day. A comfortable pair of jean shorts is my ideal summer staple and I can't even talk about how much I adore the striped shoes I found. I've mentioned my love for slide sandals before, and these are pretty much the coolest looking slides ever. Molly recently purchased the Clarins Self Tanning lotion and has been quite pleased with it, so I am thinking of jumping on that bandwagon myself. A good self-tanner for the face and bod is priceless in my opinion and beats getting too much sun, too. Hope everyone has had a nice relaxing long weekend (much needed around here) and was able to spend time with friends, family, and puppies like we did:) Don't forget to hit up the sales + steals before they end today and tomorrow!!

This + That // Sales + Steals

May 27, 2016

To say that this week has been hectic/chaotic/overwhelming/younameit would be a complete understatement. It was one of those weeks where things weren't just crazy at work, but it was after work as well. The amount of downtime has seemed limited and sleep has been minimal at best. I am not one of those humans that functions well under those conditions. In fact, I can pretty much loose my mind. The holiday weekend has come at the most perfect time. We are flying to Texas tonight to see our pups who have been staying with their Grams and Gramps (my awesome in-laws). I am hoping for warm weather, pool time with puppies, and Tex-Mex galore. That and most definitely scooping up a few good sale buys for upcoming weddings, etc. Happy long weekend! (read on to get the sales + steals)

Forever Karlie Flares | Styled Thrice

May 26, 2016

Here you have it, my third and final look with the Forever Karlie Tall Flare jeans. If I could wear a pair of jeans and some sort of white shirt (preferably a t-shirt) every day, I would - so this ensemble is definitely a true example of my kind of dressing. Simple, comfortable, basic with maybe a little bit of edge or detail thrown in. The only reason why I don't do the jeans + white tee look all day erryday is because I love it so much that I don't ever want to get sick of wearing it. I'm not so sure that makes total since to say but in my head it does!

 

I wish I had more thoughts to bring to the table for this post but my brain’s still a little fuzzy from last night’s book club meeting (re: wine, wine, wine). Hoping that my little mini series showed you how versatile flare jeans can be. I seriously can’t get enough of mine…and the best way to close is by telling you all that the pair I have is now ON SALE at Shopbop! Run don’t walk before your size sells out.
