Farming Attire

Nick and I spent one evening last weekend picking and cracking walnuts. I have to admit that I made the job more difficult than it needed to be by attempting to pick up the walnuts with a bucket in one hand and a cider in the other. Next came the cracking....who knew that cracking the walnuts could be so much work? My dad used to give me the walnuts cracked, toasted and in a freezer bag. I don't think I fully appreciated it until last weekend.

Jeweled Shorts

Tee American Apparel/ Shorts Zara/ Sandals Nine West/ Bag Urban Outfitters
I got a compliment on my "ombre" hair today, which I just loved. I guess that means that I have let my hair grow out far enough that it now looks intentional :) I actually have a few more photos to share with you all soon. It feels nice to take pictures and blog when I want to, rather than feeling the pressure of doing it so frequently. Thank you all for you continued support and for being so understanding!

Black, White, and Tan

Shorts Zara/ Shoes Sam Edelman/ Top Forever21/ Bag Tory Burch

Yep, I am still wearing these shorts everywhere! Nick and I had a fun packed Saturday in San Francisco, attending the Giants game and wandering around the pier with two of our favorite people. Check out my instagram page for pictures from the game. Have a great week!

Tulle Skirt

*Sorry, I couldn't resist posting this picture of Dexter with his Fall/Winter coat blowing in the breeze

Thank you all so much for the kind words. It really means a lot to me that you a) enjoy my blog and b) took the time to share your thought. After taking some time to think it over I have decided to continue to post; however, on a less frequent/regular basis. I think the pressure of posting four to five times a week was a little much for me to manage. I will try to update a couple of times a week, but no promises.

We spent the week/weekend enjoying the company of one of our nephews and my aunt. We had sleepovers, visited the reptile museum (not ever going there again), and headed to Santa Cruz boardwalk for some rides and lunch/dinner on the water. I love when family visits, but it makes it that much harder when they leave. At least I know that I will be seeing them again soon!

Embellished Tee and Ripped Jeans


 Jeans Joe's/ Top Express/ Shoes Shoedazzle/ Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs
I was going to write about finding this shirt in my closet and visiting with family, but instead I will tell you a little about the conversations I have been having with my sister and husband. I am thinking about quitting :( I don't know if any of you have put yourself "out there" before, but doing this blog has definitely taken me out of my comfort zone. When I started this blog I had very high expectations for myself, like most people do when they set out to do something. I also set a goal for myself, which I have not reached, not even close. Blogging can sometimes be the most rewarding part of my day and it can also be the worst part of my day. I have received so much support from many of my family and friends and I am very grateful for that. I wouldn't have made it this long without them. I think I need to reevaluate why I am doing this and what I hope to gain, if anything. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated :)

Printed Skirt

Skirt Topshop/Top Express/ Shoes Aldo/ Bag Chanel

I thought this skirt was really fun and decided to step outside of my comfort zone a bit. I have been getting very excited for Fall and the upcoming holidays. There is nothing better than pumpkin flavored everything, changing leaves, snuggly blankets, and the smell of rain. Have a great day!

Simple Black Tee

Jeans Seven for All Mankind/ Clutch YSL/ Tee American Apparel/ Shoes Steve Madden/ Bracelet Gift from Costa Rica

With the exception of my dinner date outfits, I feel like I have really been getting back to the basics for my everyday wear. I don't feel like layering jewelry or clothing at all and there is something about a flare jean that has been calling my name. I hope you all are having a great week.
