Leopard Lime

Aww, the Florida heat is upon us and my swollen hands and feet are so happy :-/  These shorts and sandals have been in heavy rotation lately.  I'm not typically a shorts kinda gal especially since those lovely pregnancy stretch marks are only on the back of my legs...not anywhere on my belly...only on the visible part of my body.  I've gotten great advice from you ladies on what to wear this summer to make it through the last stretch.  I've started using many of your suggestions so I'm very thankful!

Stripes and Dots

Just, you know, testing the seams on my pre-maternity clothes and they're barely holding together.  My husband sweetly said to me the other day that if I really need more maternity clothes that he would be happy to go shopping with me...big mistake buddy ;-)  I obviously took him up on his offer and picked up just a few things that I hope will be enough to take me through these last couple of months.  Of the things I bought, one was a dress I'm planning on wearing to my baby shower!

Devil in Me

 Dress: Target  /  Handbag: Chanel  /  Shoes: Sam Edelman  /  Accessories: Gucci Sunglasses, J Crew, Stella and Dot, David Yurman, Elizabeth Cole

I'm trying my best to channel this outfit from the movie "Devil Wears Prada."  That is one movie that I could watch over and over and over again.  One of my husband's pet peeves is that I can watch movies over and over again without getting sick of them.  But who can resist not watching films like Legally Blonde, Devil Wears Prada, Bridget Jones, and 500 Days of Summer three times in one day?  Am I right or am I right?

Camo Houndstooth

My husband and I have been working a little later than usual so by the time we get home it's dark outside.  We aren't picture taking savvy enough to know how to take night time photos so pictures in the early morning it is for now.
I look thrilled and so much like a morning person, right? :-)
I purposefully bought this dress a size bigger so that I could grow into it the next couple of months.  I was drawn to the pattern which is a mix of camo and houndstooth I think.  I'm definitely becoming more and more a dress person because they are easy and comfortable.

Basically Basic

It's true, my style is simple.  Is that a bad thing though?  I always go for comfort over style but try to balance the line of trying to look nice while still feeling comfortable.  Although there isn't much excitement with this outfit, it's comfortable, and for me, that's okay :-)

Working Uniform

I think I may have been in the minority of those school kids that actually wanted to wear uniforms.  I never had to wear a uniform but something about the plaid always appealed to me.  I would have gotten tired of them just like when I was a Brownie and never wanted to wear the brown uniform but since the grass is always greener, I secretly wanted uniforms.

When I was in middle school, there was a strict dress code that required the use of a belt if you had belt loops.  Well, one day I went to school in overalls that had, yep, belt loops and I, of course, did not wear a belt.  My friend and I were both called into the office for not wearing a belt.  Neither of our moms would come bring us a belt so we did the next best thing...cut the loops off.  This has obviously scarred me in life (this dress has loops attached) and is probably why I just wanted uniforms instead of having to wear a belt with my overalls...priorities.

Farmer's Market Breakfast

Putting this post together, I realized that everything I wore, head to toe mostly, was from Target.  I told my husband about this discovery and his response, "that'll be my favorite post of all time."  Oh boy...

Saturday morning, my husband and I walked around the Village Farmer's Market and had breakfast at my favorite breakfast restaurant.  Simple kind of morning but it made me realize how much I love where I live and how much I enjoy days like these.  The Gators beat Tennessee so it was a nice lil Florida Saturday :-)

Red, Blue, and Fireworks

I wear my Eve's Addiction Monogram Necklace a lot because a. hubby gave it to me, b. it has my new initials on it, and c. I LOVE IT!  So I was extra thrilled when they interviewed me for their blog!  Check out the interview here:

Thank you Skylette from Sequins and Stilettos for the shout out!

Have a safe and happy independence day!

Birthday Girl

Today is my 29th birthday.  It's the last year that I can say, "I'm in my 20's,"  and I'm okay with that.  I'm looking forward to making this year great.  I know it sounds cliche to say that but I truly want to kick in my 30s with the expectation that I did my 20's proud or that I accomplished as much as I could.

I look forward to embracing changes that come with growing older and wiser.  I, also, look forward to continuing my career and this lil ole blog.  I never thought I would actually start this blog but I'm so happy that I did.  I've enjoyed reading all the comments and emails and connecting with other bloggers.  I very much look up to you all for daily inspiration and appreciate all the kindness that has been shown to me.  Thank you so much :-)

Packing Treasures

My hubby and I did some packing this weekend and I uncovered some (or a lot) of accessories and clothes that were hidden for the past two years.  These sunglasses were one of my finds that I found underneath the bed.  Yeah, I'm that bad at housecleaning that for two years, these were under the bed!

Summer Freshness

With the start of summer, many stores are having major sales and promotions.  I have been taking full advantage of many of my favorites stores 50% already reduced prices and have found great deals!  But does anyone else's hubby suggest that for every new item you buy, something old must get thrown out?  Or is that something evil my hubby came up with????  In all seriousness, I really like the idea of taking something old that I've been hoarding since college or bought on a whim that hasn't been worn and giving it away.  I always keep a pile of things to give away in my closet to give to my sisters.  So I guess hubby's idea wasn't so bad... lol

Yellow and Black

I've worn this Loft sweater a couple of times before just never with the black shirt underneath.  I get to work and someone tells me that I'm channeling Star Trek with this look.  Although I did see the new Star Trek movie that came out a little bit ago, I'm not familiar with Star Trek nor did I ever watch the show.  I thought, there's no way someone on Star Trek had a yellow sweater with a black collar...

I guess Captain Kirk and I share similar tastes...

Sweater and the Dress

I think the majority of what I ate this weekend was all sugary sweets...hence the sweater and dress combo ;-)  My mom's friend sweetly gifted me a box of macarons and I nearly devoured the entire box in one sitting.  Seriously.  The next day, my parents came back from Puerto Rico and brought back soooo much food.  I really can't complain though since it was delicious.  Here's to hoping I add more vegetables to my meals this week :-)
