It’s Monday! Hoping you all had a great long holiday weekend. It has been a while since my last post but I have some great posts coming up here on the blog. Anyone else have a slight obsession with off the shoulder tops? More on that in a moment…… These converse have been on repeat in my summer wardrobe lately.  Oh, and this off the shoulder top……I am loving summer off the shoulder tops and this one is perfect.  You can head over to the shop, 7th & Park and get this off the shoulder top for LESS than $25!  Another repeat item is my mirrored aviator sunglasses which are UNDER $7 over at the shop too!  This whole look is less than $100.  The best part, most of these items will be staple pieces for your summer wardrobe. You can wear each of these pieces differently.  Anyone else love the off the shoulder top look? What are some of your summer wardrobe staple pieces? Great summer SALE going on at 7th & Park boutique!

*Coming up this week my DIY stair makeover Part 1!

XOXO,

Sometimes an all striped dress can be a bit overwhelming.  I used to hate horizontal stripes as it does the one thing we all never want, make us look wider. But I have recently come around to them a bit more in the past year or so. Naturally with this loose fitting T-shirt striped dress, I did not want the stripes to over power my look.  By adding solid pieces, it helped tone down the bold pattern while still giving the stripe pattern center stage.  Anyone else like to wear a sporty look to run errands on beautiful days? I know what your are thinking, your yoga pants do just fine for a sporty look.  Okay, maybe you can give your yoga pants a break and still be comfortable and sporty with a simple Tshirt dress, low sneaker and fun accessories. Try it out! Maybe you will go back to the days of Sporty Spice. Anyone else a Spice Girl fan in the 90’s? I sure was! Spice up yo life!

And who doesn’t love a nice jumping picture? Truth is I was overjoyed at the beautiful weather we have had this past week I was celebrating. Okay and maybe jumping for joy that we leave on vacation in less than two weeks! Score! Those poor pale legs of mine need some time in the sun. Oh, pardon my pedometer, I have been wearing it to track my daily steps and it slipped its way into this photo shoot. 🙂

Lets be honest, I love my basics.  Everything about this look screams basic! Nothing says wearing heels everyday is the only way to show your style. Sometimes a girl just wants to have a laid back look and I go straight to basic pieces for that kind of day.  These Converse are by far all I had hoped they would be and more.  Convers-ation is getting real…..  These Converse ‘shoreline’ slip ons have been on my ‘shopping list’ and radar for a while now. Go. Get. Them. Now. What girl can’t love her chucks every now and again?  These are going to be a great go to shoe for spring and summer days. How do you all wear your basic and/or converse?

P.S. This pair of denim was on clearance, plus an additional % off.  Ended up paying $12 for a pair of high waisted, distressed denim that was on my ‘shopping list’. Score! I have a love for all pants high waisted. 🙂

XOXO,
