Summer Layering

As if you haven't noticed, Dexter loves making cameos on my blog and Nick usually spends more time photographing him than me. The above picture is all the evidence you need.
Have a great weekend!

Summer Stripes


Top F21/ Shorts Express/ Wedges Old
I tried taking some "selfies" without a proper camera stand. Even Dexter was exhausted by my sad attempt :)  I spent the night at my awesome friend's house Sunday night and came to several realizations:
1) I really REALLY miss her. I knew I missed her before, but actually getting to hang out for a while elevated those feelings.
2) I need to get a clarisonic. My face felt so smooth afterwards.
3) I also need to start using WEN hair care products. My sister has been trying to convince me for a couple of months now and I have to admit that my hair never felt softer.
4) Having a personal trainer is awesome...especially when it is your BFF and you get to work out with a small group of friends.
5) I also was lucky enough to enjoy the company of her sister who I adore spending time with, which in turn made me miss my sister even more.
I would also like to mention that a stranger pinned one of my outfits on Pinterest and it kind of (err....absolutely) made my day.
Have a great Wednesday.

High Waisted Shorts

Shirt and Shorts F21/ Shoes Gianni Bini/ Jewelry Express, F21/ Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs

One of the chores that I need to get to this summer is cleaning out my closet. I have decided that I have waaaayyy to many summer outfit options and that I really don't need anything new. It is hard to not get caught up in buying the latest and greatest, especially when you have a blog, but I think it will be more fun to remix the items I already have in my closet. This will serve as somewhat of a challenge, forcing me to become a bit more creative with my outfits. The challenge begins today!!!!

Polka Dot Shorts/Skort

Shorts Target/ Tank F21/ Shoes BCBGeneration/ Jewelry Express, Nordstrom
This was my Father's day BBQ outfit. My husband was curious as to what kind of bottoms these were and I tried to explain what a skort was without much success. It was awfully windy that day, blowing my "skort" all around. Wish me luck for Bunco tonight!

Flower Crown Headwrap

Top look all from Urban Outfitters: CrownRomper, Shoes, Bag
Bottom look all from Shopbop: Crown, Dress, Shoes, Bag
Flower crowns are all the rage on Pinterest these days and my sister-in-law mentioned that she would be wearing one in some upcoming photos. I thought it would be fun to take the trend and create some looks. I am loving the jeweled one...I may just have to snag it up!

Summer Romper

Romper Gift from Sis/ Sandals Target/ Jewelry Express, Nordstrom/ Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs

My generous, beautiful sister sent me this romper in the mail when I was having a bad couple of days. How thoughtful is that? I think if I ever read the "Language of Love" book it would say that mine is gifts. I love the colorful print and the silky feel of this romper. I got a little matchy matchy with my accessories, but I just couldn't resist layering on my favorite color.

In other news...we almost one our first softball game. It went to extra innings, which is a huge improvement from our last couple of weeks. I pre-gamed at Panera with my other sis-in-law, enjoying another great lunch!

P.S. I love Lydia from Real Housewives of OC and thought I would try out her jeweled headband look. I am digging' it. Happy Tuesday!

P.P.S. I will be working on a collage for tomorrow, so feel free to send me an item that you want to see featured! :)

Silky Shorts


Shorts and Tank F21/ Shoes DV Dolce Vita/ Necklace Express/ Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs
I have been living in silky shorts and tanks the last couple of days. I liked the fun print on these and the fact that they were around 10 dollars. Be prepared for the silky shorts overload this week!

Nautical Shorts

Shirt Nordstrom/ Shorts JCrew/ Jewelry Express, Nordstrom/ Shoes Gianni Bini/ Clutch Marc by Marc Jacobs
I think it might be impossible to wear these shorts without exuding a nautical vibe, so I just went with it. I wore this outfit for a lunch date with my sister-in-law, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am one of those people that talks a lot when I get excited or haven't seen somebody in a while, okay I guess I talk a lot in general. Right about now is the time to feel sad for Katie, or jealous that you weren't having lunch with me  ;) All kidding aside, I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Striped Dress + Coral

Jacket F21/ Dress and Shoes Target/ Necklace Nordstrom/ Watch Michael Kors/ Bag TB
So, I have a confession...Whenever a new trend comes out (i.e. peplum, colored denim, etc.) I have a tendency to buy a ton of stuff. Remember when cropped sweaters were all the rage about 7? years back? (guess who has a bin full of them) I am also a bit of a clothes hoarder. When you add up the trend purchasing and hoarding, you're left with a pretty full closet. I have been making a conscious effort to not "over buy" when it comes to a trend. I am proud to say that I have limited myself to a few items. The next couple of sentences are meant to be purely observation, not criticism. There are other blogs that I look at and lately I am finding myself uninterested. I think it might be the overload of "trends." So I apologize if you want to see the latest and greatest everyday, but I think that some days we need to put down the chambray or peplum top, colored skinnies, and statement necklaces (myself included).  Thanks for reading!

Little Red Skirt

A friend of mine told me that she was thinking about buying the red skirt in the center. I thought it would be fun to pick out some tops and shoes to go with it. Sorry, I am still trying to figure out how to make collages without borders, so that the outfits would match up better.  If anybody knows how feel free to share.
I am by no means a personal styling expert, but I do enjoy helping my family and friends when they ask. I have spent hours searching for dresses, shoes, etc. for events for my peeps and have even put together looks and "option boards" similar to this and emailed them. If you would like me to put a board together for you or would like me to feature an item for you on the site, send me an email! Have a great day!

Bold Flower Necklace

Top Marshalls/ Jeans Citizens of Humanity/ Wedges Steve Madden/ Bag TB/ Necklace GroopDeelz?
This was my "last day of work" outfit. Statement necklaces have been all the rage lately and I can see why. My outfit would have been rather plain without it. I apologize for the late post, my husband strained/tore his hamstring last night, so I was getting ice, motrin, snacks, etc. instead of writing my post. As a result of said left hamstring injury, I am getting some practice driving around the stick may want to stay off the roads. :)
