Photo Friday: Homebody

After what has been a long & somewhat disappointing week, the long weekend has finally arrived.  I've been a homebody as of late, trying to finish up several projects around our place & preparing for football to start (college=Saturday, NFL=Thursday)...

Basking in the Sun

I've been trying to take advantage of the heat wave this week by wearing all the summer outfits I possibly can.  I wore this out last weekend to run errands, eventually swapping my heels for black flip flops & removing the jacket by mid-afternoon...

Inspiration: Raw Minerals

It's happening again- my obsession to raw-cut stones & earthly treasures has returned.  I'm in the process of acquiring a few new pieces to add to my collection, but until I do, here's a little inspiration to get us both by...

Sunday's Were Made For Baseball Games

I wore this a few weekends back when we decided to head to a pub to watch the Jays play.  There's nothing better than the combination of a printed tee, blazer, denim, & heels when it comes to getting dressed for an afternoon of beers & baseball...

Photo Friday: Mini Moments

Happy Friday!  This weekend's plans are pretty insignificant, just a few projects around the house & some quality time with the manpanion.  As for last weekend, I added a new jacket to my collection, perused the IKEA catalog, welcomed a gifted doormat to my front stoop, relocated my sweater collection, sipped a latte in a cozy sweater, & painted my nails to match my earrings.

Inspiration: Boho Chic

I've always been drawn to the effortless styling of bohemian dressing, but never really felt it suited me.  Gauzy fabrics, layers of turquoise & silver jewelry, ankle boots, & large brimmed hats paired with wavy locks all just seem to fit for summer.  Here's some inspiration, courtesy of the heat & humidity that decided to come back one last time...

Cheerleader Chic

The frilly skirt & this striped sweatshirt only made me think 'cheerleader' when I glanced at myself in the mirror.  Also, I swear I'm not that blame the lighting isn't convincing you though, is it?

Summer Skies

Wore this a few weekends ago, when the temperatures were starting to fall as the sun set.  I've finally managed to grow my hair out long enough to exhibit a long's all about the little victories, right?
