Kimono: 7th & Park Boutique (here) // Gold Sandals: JCrew Factory (here)
Happy long weekend! The long weekend is a good change of pace around here to get somethings done on my to-do list. What are your plans this weekend? I cannot believe it is already July! This year is flying by. Monday, I am thinking of taking a ‘pool day’ to relax and enjoy the summer sunshine, maybe read a book.
The best pieces to add to your wardrobe are those items that can be worn multiple ways. This 7th & Park Boutique floral cover up can be worn a few ways. It would look great over a dress. You could pair with pants as I did above. Or you could simply wear it as a swim cover up for a day at the beach or pool. I really like the detail of the fringe on the sleeves and bottom hem. Get this cover up/kimono for under $40 + Free shipping, here. You can also get these gold sandals which I have been living in this summer, here, for under $25.
Have a great Holiday weekend. I am still currently working on blog posts & a video of our Hawaii trip!
What is more exciting, this perfect ‘summer’ weather lately or that I am finally blogging? Okay, maybe you all did not miss me like I have missed blogging. Lets have a small recap on my life since my last post in February. Yes, I said February as in 4 months ago. Since then, I have been working full time, running the boutique business full time, small renovations to our kitchen, attending weddings, going on mini weekend trips and most recently planning/taking a two week vacation to Hawaii for my 30th Birthday. It was the trip of a lifetime and I could go on for hours about it. I took a lot of photos and videos in Hawaii so I am still working on a post or two of that trip. Stay tuned and I will eventually share it here with you all. 🙂
Todays look is one of my favorite summer go to looks. A simple bell sleeve dress with some simple bright designs. This look can go to the beach, the park or a day date. Good news, you can get it right now at 7th & Park. Free U.S. shipping! I paired my look with a simple gold flat sandal from J.Crew. You can also add more accessories depending on the occasion. Beach tote? Floppy hat for the beach? Sunglasses? Check out the sunglasses all under $15 at 7th & Park.
Hope you all are doing well and have some fun things planned for the weekend and summer. I have a few things planned this summer; lake house life in Maryland with my family, girls weekend to see my best friend in Grand Rapids, mini tips and possibly a getaway to Nashville, TN. We recently booked a long weekend trip for early November in NYC. Southwest was having a major sale and I earn points with my Southwest card. Our flights only cost me $22.40! (the taxes & fees you have to pay) I will put together a post soon on how we travel on a budget and get great deals. As for this weekend, I will continue working on our kitchen/patio area, getting caught up on the business, and enjoy the nice weather outside.
Enjoy your weekend!
Hello and Happy Friday! It has been over six months since my last post here on the blog, but I’m back and with a workwear look thats easy to create. Can you all believe I never used to own anything pink in my wardrobe and I disliked pink hardcore? I know, strange, right? I have just never been one to like pink. I own a few items now but my dislike for wearing pink is not so much a thing anymore. 😊
Today’s post does not come with ‘new’ things in my closet to share, besides the handbag. All the other items in today’s post consist of items that are year(s) old. Re-creating a look from items I already own is something I am working on these days. ‘Less is more’ You can create more looks than you think with items you already own or forgot you own.
Classic stripes, which I wear at least once a week, black velvet crop pants and a pop of color coat make for an easy workwear look. Classic, simple looks are my favorite.
Have a great weekend.
