(sandals: old navy, skirt: h&m)
LOVE these shirts. I need to find me some for this spring/summer~
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been really into reading books this summer. Whether it’s at home, the beach or at the pool~ I’ve been zipping through books! Here are some recommendations from UsWeekly recently~The next one I’ve been itching to read is actually Gone Girl. Anyone read it yet?
Just a fun little clip to read about pronouncing celebrity names =P
(It’s from this issue)
…I shopped. gahhh So hard to say no to sales when the deals are SOOO GOOD. For this piperlime/gap/old navy round, Everything was 25% off (using codes from their websites: ONTAKE25 for old navy and the gap one is over…)~ Plus I had a gift card for the company which…made it even harder to stay away. Anyway…on to the things I bought!
Found this gorgeous Bikini in downtown LA today for $20!! I’ve been searching for stuff with the American flag since the Olympics started and I have my first find. 🙂 LOVE IT! Cant wait to wear it to the beach, on fourth of july and…well any chance I get!
Biked to Santa Monica pier and Venice Beach with Markel today~~ LOVE summer
I can never find all the things I love in one place, so I thought I’d blog about it instead =) Because there may be some other girls out there planning their big day! I know it sounds like a lot of colors…but Black/White will be the main colors at play~ while Gold/Pink will accent every detail and create a rich depth into the details. I’m sure you’ll already see this pattern, but I’m obsessed with stripes, lace, pearls, and bows. I want that vintage feel but with romantic modern touches to give it a more elegant and chic feel. I’m sure I’ll change my mind a hundred times more before the wedding~ but here’s the board in progress~ And yes…this is sensory overload so I’m sure when the time comes, everything will be much more streamlined, must more simple…and hopefully well put together.
so…for my someday wedding…here is my board of ideas:
Wow I cannot believe it’s already JULY!!! WowzaAaa Every year I love to make big plans for this day. I don’t’ know if I could say that I’m super patriotic, but I love any reason to throw a great BBQ, have friends over and make a mean cocktail. In the spirit of America, red/white/blue, and all things patriotic…I leave you with this collage of sparkles and red/white/blue!
I need a cold drink today… =P After a thrilling weekend with friends, I’m off to eat, drink and tan with my friends =) Since Markel bought me the every so wonderful Kindle Fire~ I can’t wait to get caught up on some summer guilty pleasures (oh yes…chicklit!)
Happy Sunday All!
LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes. They’re super comfy and easy to walk in. ❤
I just bought my tickets to Hawaii (Honolulu/Waikiki) and all I can think about is what new things I should buy for my trip ❤ Here’s a fun collage of my wishlist from Piperlime (where else?). For the 13 days that I’m there, I hope to spend most of it on the beach drinking margaritas and getting super dark! hehe
More ideas! =)
I’m SOOOO excited! Today, the Blairs and I are going wine tasting in Temecula together. I LOVE everything about this trip~~ eating lunch outside at a winery, getting to try new delicious wine bottles, and spending time with Markel, Mama and Papa Blair. This weekend there is a Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival going on~ not sure if we’re going to go to that, but wine tasting and a gorgeous lunch outside are definitely on our check-list! Today, I leave you with some fun pics I found online to show you what I’ll be doing this weekend ❤
As for an outfit…I’m thinking about something like these below with GORGEOUS nude espadrilles =)
LOVE LOVE LOVE this skirt!!! So ADORBS~~ I want it so badly for the summer. Yes it’s loud, yes it’ll probably be worn only once…but I LOVE IT! I can imagine wearing it with a really flowy tank and flats and LOUD red lipstick and my hair tied up in a bun ❤
So…Markel doesn’t know it yet…but this summer I plan to revamp his wardrobe with some more preppy pieces. I’ve decided that preppy looks the best on him and really gives off a clean, put-together look. He can mix and match without a problem, plus he’ll always look appropriate to every function without much effort. Button downs, polos, khakis, boat shoes, hats… it’s SO adorable!
Here my inspiration board first, then I’ll show you the new things I’m looking to add to Markel’s wardrobe =D
My Shopping List:
Okay…so it wasn’t just a FEW key pieces…kind of a lot really…But each item was so adorable i just couldn’t take anything out!
