 Cheers to a short week!
I'm craving a mohito, a manicure, and a dip cone. Top priorities for the weekend.

Abusing the Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Pandora station as I take long runs along the water. Highly recommend it.
Just bought this little tunic on sale and love that it's a bit more cropped- perfect to wear with jeans rather than a bathing suit.
Looking to cozy up poolside wearing this white panama hat, this suit *30% off, and one of these cute striped turkish towels which can double as a sarong (just can't decide on a color!)
Also loving that everyone is getting on board with the jumpsuit these days. I parted with one during my last closet cleanse and would LOVE to replace it with this little stunner- also 30% off. It seems there's no middle ground on this one though... you either love it or can't stand it. Similar to Joverals (jean-overalls). 
Would you rock the onsie look?

Looking to add all of the above to my bookshelf this summer. 
Yes. All Eight.

Happy Wednesday

Summer Stripes

Posted on: Tuesday, May 28, 2013

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! 
I did some spring cleaning, updated my living room with a new sisal rug, spent time with family, and enjoyed long runs by the water.  
Little round up of some classic summer stripes:
*also obsessed with these pants which are on sale but out of my size, wah-wah.

Sounds of Silence

Posted on: Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Sorry for the lack of post today... once I emerge from this pile of work I'll be back.
In the meantime I've logged some serious hours on the computer listening to moody melodies in the background while I work.
A few of my favorites:
Daughter: "run" and "youth"
Wood Brothers: "luckiest man"
Atlas Genious: "Trojans"
Little Green Cars: "the john wayne"
Muse: "madness"
Philip Phillips: "home"
Marina & The Diamonds: "i am not a robot"
Sufjan Stevens: "jacksonville"
The XX: "intro" and "chained"
Damien Rice: "9 crimes"

Of course during break time I have to turn it up with something upbeat. What are you listening to these days? I'd love to know.

When I first pinned this image of the June 1932 Vogue Cover from the Vogue cover Archives I had two thoughts: 1. I need this framed and in my gallery wall immediately 2. Is it summer yet?

For me summer means COLOR so I've put together a few "essentials" for your summer lust list:

1. This blue striped pouch is perfect for nights out after a fun day at the beach or to wrangle small essentials in a larger tote. The whimsical tassel detail is my favorite part aside from the price $36
2. Still loving a fedora for summer. Perfect for the beach, and serious sun protection.
3. A statement necklace elevates any ensemble. Jeans and a tee- suddenly next level. Simple solid maxi, instantly transformed with a bold necklace like this one. It looks like it costs hundreds but is only $32.  Yes you read that correctly!
4. Why not switch out your iPhone case for a lighter summer look? I'm coveting this pink ombre option.
5. Summer calls for cocktails and these napkins are such a nice touch for either a hostess gift of for yourself!
6. This striped straw beach bag is a must-have. The rope handles are my favorite part, and it comes in either red or blue.  When I first saw it I thought the only thing that could possibly make it better is a monogram... well guess what? BOOM. You can have it monogrammed and it's only $27.
7. I've got to give it to JR for keeping up with the trends on this one. I love the neon detail on the iconic flops- I certainly have my fair share of JR's but adding these is a must. 
8. Couldn't leave you without the perfect summer weight striped scarf- the pink detail sets it apart.

Ready to double down on NEON? Then Tory Burch is your girl.  I love the pop of color in the above bags and wallets.  I'm not really in the market for a wallet at the moment; so, the neon snake cross body may just have to happen!
Which would you go for and what color would you choose?

I hope all of the mommies out there enjoyed a special weekend with their families!  Today's post is a little roundup of a few things I'm loving lately.
1. I'll take two of those perfect little x benches please!
2. This chandelier would be lovely in any space but I really like the idea of it in a nursery or play room.
3. Travel necessities! I'm starting to think about my summer excursions, and if you know me, then you know sleep masks are an absolute must (this is my all time favorite one).
4.  These heels are such a fun statement piece and they actually have a reasonable price point.
5. This boho top would pair perfectly with these jeans. Could be my summer uniform.
6.  Still working on my coffee table collection and this book is high on the list of new purchases.

Wait... what day is it?
Is anyone else having that kind of week? Whirlwind! Busy busy at work and have something to do every night of the week. I'm certainly not complaining and am so fortunate to have family in town as of today! So exciting.
Wishing you all a happy day!

I'd wear this as an outfit but also know that I would get a ton of wear out of each piece individually. 
Throw on the chambrary shirt for they beach or pair it with colored jeans for a relaxed daytime look
The Sam Edelman pumps are perfect with a shift dress, white or even distressed jeans.
The striped skirt is a stunner that transitions nicely from day to night. Toss on a silk cami and some statement jewels for a night out.
Warby Parker sunnies- need I say more?
 Clare Vivier's La Grande Pochette: neutral paired with a neon stripe: yes, yes, and yes. Just do it.
Lastly, loving the juxtaposition of the large round face paired with the slim white strap on this watch.

Weekend Wear

Posted on: Thursday, May 2, 2013

This is the type of outfit I'd wear on repeat and hope that I don't bump into anyone who has seen me in it already! Easy, comfortable, and appropriate for everything from the grocery store to happy hour.
(Click images below to go straight to sources)

I had to throw in the adorable tic-tac-toe board.  Simplistic, chic and f-u-n. I don't know if it's arrested development or what... but I'm always game for a little tic-tac-toe, hangman, shut the box (ACK lovers you follow me right? Cisco Brewery!) and catch phrase. I'm a little overly competitive at most things. Cards... yup, bowling.. that too, ping pong... didn't think I would take it there did you? But yes.
Anyone with me on this? If you haven't heard about Catch Phrase I would definitely check it out. It's so much fun with a group (and libations) on a night in.
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Go Bold or Go Home

Posted on: Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Bright and bold- this look is perfect for happy hour with your girls or a fun date! I've been a fan of statement pants for a while so the bright yellow hue is right up my alley. The shoes are such a home run and a steal priced at only $59.  The sunglasses and blouse are staple pieces you can easily mix in all summer... but the clutch!? The clutch is a showstopper.
