Prints, Basics, & Mixed Metals

I'm skipping this weeks installment of Photo Friday & decided to show you the new additions to my closet.  Unfortunately, since a majority of these are geared toward cooler temperatures, I may not get to wear them for a little while longer.

Nobody Til You

Summer dressing at its finest. An outfit consisting of two light-weight layered jersey dresses, a pair of old gladiator sandals, & a feather head-wrap worn as a belt is as creative as I can get in this heat...

The White T

Nothing beats a classic white tee.  I've had my share of favorites over the years, but at the moment, I'm obsessed with this one from TNA.  It's just as soft as some of my old soccer t shirts I reserve for bed-time only, has just the right amount of drape, and it falls away from the body/doesn't cling.  I dressed up my white t with a ballgown-length skirt & piled on the jewels...

On the Fence

I was initially on the fence on whether I should actually buy these flats, as they were a bit pricey for flats (in my opinion).  I also have a rule while shopping: If the item in question cannot be easily styled in 5 different ways, then I don't allow myself to buy it.  Instead of thinking about what I could wear these with, I was trying to think of what I couldn't wear them with...

Blog Crush: Pneumonia White

In typical Sunday morning fashion, I'm sipping my coffee & catching up on my favorite blogs (my visitors are all still sound asleep).  Among them, a newcomer,  is the ever-captivating & refreshing blog of Pneumonia White.  Her text is poetically well-spoken, her photography is modern & intriguing, and her style is reminiscent of an old Hollywood movie star with a modern day twist.  However, those reasons are not what keeps me checking back day after day. What does?  Her fascinating story of a tragic past and new beginning that keeps me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know more. Don't take my word for it, read it yourself. I promise you won't regret it....

Photo Friday

A majority of these photos are from last weekend at Rib & Beer fest.  My weekend started last night when my family/friends arrived, I just wish the weather would cooperate so we could hit the beach (it's almost too hot to be outside for extended periods of time).  Happy Weekend!

The aftermath of a drinking game...I won ;)

Corn on the Cob, yumm....
Buckets & pans of BBQ sauce
BBQ pulled pork was amazing!
Working on some friendship bracelets :)
An outfit that wasn't really blog-worthy, but I love the colors...
How cute is this bracelet a reader sent me?! Love the neon yellow, thanks again Sam :)

The Summer Suit

Easy summer dressing in an office-appropriate manner.  The wedges & silver cuffs add a bit of edge, while the scarf & glitter nail polish keep the look on the feminine side. It's a scorcher out, hottest day we've had in years...

On My Desk

Yes, I'm one of those "I'd-go-insane-if-I-lost-my-day planner" type of people.  I've got some current DIY projects in mind & some fun new posts coming up, just waiting on the mailman to deliver some supplies...

Tropical Paradise

The combination of this vintage jacket, the sun, & the humidity made me feel as though I had gone on vacation to a tropical locale. If only...

In Full Swing

I almost held off too long on buying this dress.  By the time I figured out how badly I needed it (yes, you read that correctly...needed), it was practically impossible to find.  I love the full skirt & the bright colored stripes, but most of all, the way Marc Jacobs  never fails to create my dream wardrobe...
