Beautiful Blouse

Top BCBG/Jeans 7FAM/Shoes Steve Madden/Bag YSL/Braceletes Jcrew, Express, Target

Sometimes I feel like photographs just don't do my outfit justice. This blouse is beautiful in person, but is coming across a little bleh in the photos. I guess you will just have to take my word for it. I am looking forward to the long weekend as I am sure most of you are. Find me on Instagram to see what I am up to this weekend...

Mini + Tennies

Skirt American Apparel/Top Nordstrom/Shoes Converse/Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs

Don't mind my wrinkled shirt. I would like to pretend that it was totally wrinkle free before tucking it in and wearing it, but I don't want to be a liar. I am not much for ironing (everything seems to come out worse than when I started) and I am very thankful that we have a steamer. I remember several years ago when I told my mother-in-law that I never ironed or dry-cleaned anything...I thought she might bust a vein. Since then I can say that I have improved...a little. I now go to the dry cleaners once a year! :)

I am excited to be featured again on Dailybuzz for Labor Day Fashion!

Dress Target/Clutch UO/Shoes DV Dolce Vita/ Belt F21 
I wore this cozy dress over the weekend to breakfast with my family. This dress is quite old, but I never get tired of the print. On another note, I made a meatloaf last night that had a ton of vegetables in it. It actually turned out better than I had husband even requested that I make it again.

I sincerely apologize for my lack of regular updates. Between family visiting and starting back at work I haven't found much extra time to take photos. I guess that isn't a very good excuse, since it is all about prioritizing....

p.s. I was very excited to be featured again on the site for Fall fashion! Check out my featured tab or their website to see the post.

Date Night

Romper BCBGeneartion/ Sandals Sam Edelman/ Bag Tory Burch/ Necklace Express

Nick surprised me with a date to the movies on Tuesday evening. We figured out that the last time I had been to the movies was last summer! We used to go all the time, but neither of us have movie going very high up on our list of priorities. It was nice to treat a weekday like the weekend for once though. It was also a good way to cheer me up.

As many of you already know, my grandma passed away on Sunday. I have very mixed emotions when it comes to death, but one thing that I do know is that even under crappy circumstances it is always great to see family. The rosary was last night and afterwards many of us headed to dinner. On the car ride home I was smiling and feeling so much joy after being around family and catching up. It makes me want to buy a bunch of land and build our own little commune that we all live in. Who's in? :)

Leopard Circle Skirt

 Skirt Collective Concepts/Top Nordstrom Rack/ Shoes Zara/ Bag Chanel
Sorry I just couldn't help myself :) I mentioned before that my husband ends up taking more pictures of Dexter than he does of me. This is a prime example!
I googled ecards and spent more time than I would like to admit reading them. I also ended up with tears in my eyes and a strong urge to copy a bunch to this post. I think I am a little (cough- a lot) late to the game so I wont bore you anymore with things you have already read. But seriously, if you want a good laugh....

High Waisted Denim

Shorts Express/ Top Marshalls/ Shoes Steve Madden/ Bag YSL
I have been stealing inspirational sayings/quotes from instagram, friends, etc. Sometimes all it takes are a few simple words to help put things into perspective. I also enjoy reading ecards and thought that this one was pretty fitting:
Funny Workplace Ecard: So you're telling me I've got to blog, tweet, post AND pin? When do I work?

Slithering by the Pool

Jeans Joe's/Top Michael Stars/ Bag and Shoes BCBG/Sunglasses Tom Ford
How adorable is my nephew? He was patiently waiting for us to be done with pictures, so that we could go swimming in the beautiful pool in the background.  It is tough looking at these vacation photos, especially since I started back at work yesterday. I think I decided that Fall is my favorite season, so at least there is that to look forward to :)

I saw this on an Instagram account and loved it:
If you are humble.
Nothing can touch you.
Neither praise or
Because you know who you are.

I'm Back

Top Haute Hippie/Jeans Joe's/Sandals Steve Madden/ Bag Gucci/ Glasses Maui Jim
I apologize for the lack of posts. Nick and I have been on vacation the last two weeks and we were taking advantage of our relaxation time. We just got back from a trip to Texas, visiting my sister and her family. We had such a great time that words cannot do it justice. All I can say is that we already miss everybody so much and it was very difficult to leave. We managed to take a couple of outfit pictures in between all of the photos of the kids and as you can see there is a new photo bomber in town :)

Party Time

I wore this dress for a day of parties a couple Saturdays ago. This dress is a couple of years old and it is still one of my favorites.

Currently Craving

I recently discovered Zara and I am in LOVE! These are a few of the pieces that need to be added to my closet for Fall.

Dress Old/ Top Nordstrom/ Shoes Dolce Vita/ Bag YSL
Don't worry folks, I realize that the denim/chambray trend has been a bit over done, but what hasn't? I love my denim jacket, but it is a bit too warm this time of year for it. A button up is a nice alternative.
The summer break has afforded me with ample time for thinking/contemplating and has resulted in a few personal goals. I guess it doesn't have to be January 1st to make some resolutions...
