Floral Cover Up


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!



Summer Day Dress

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!



Stripes + Pink Workwear

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.
