Blue Eyed Girl


I talked about these sunnies last week and I'm still smitten with them.  I'm also smitten with these shoes that I purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I love them so much that I also purchased the same ones but in black.  Confession time: I have never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  FOR REALS!  We stopped on the way to the beach and on the way back home to Nordstrom and OH EMMM GEEE!  For all the spending I haven't been doing, I more than made up for up.  I just couldn't flipping help myself and now I get the hype.  I, like most everyone else, had my blog reader inundated with Nordstrom Anniversary posts and I couldn't help but just scroll past them.  After seeing this sale in person, I get it.  I get it.  I like a good deal and a good deal was had.  I still have some exchanges to make since I was sort of rushing but I just love everything I got!  Let me know what goodies you scored during the sale!

Beach Please


So we discovered that Lucas is obsessed OBSESSED with the beach!  Anytime we were outside, getting ready to go to dinner, Lucas was always squirming away from us to run to the beach.  He absolutely loved shifting sand back and forth, laying on the sand, and sitting at the edge of the shore and letting the waves crash on his legs.  As soon as he woke up in the morning, he would run to the window and yell AGUA!  He then proceeded to grab my hand, place it on the door knob, and say BEEEEAAACCCHHH PLEASE!  He is a beach baby for sure.

On an unrelated note, I am obsessed with my new necklace that you can see Lucas really wanted to break.  But he didn't so it is also toddler proof.  Win win!  Also, on the way to the beach, we stopped by Nordstrom and my hubby bought these sunnies for me.  I was a little unsure because I don't have anything like them and have never purchased sunglasses in this type of frame or color but I absolutely flipping love them!  I find myself wanting to wear them every day and, plus, they remind me of the best beach trip ever so I love them even more.  I actually really like the blue lenses and, now, this brown eyed girl can finally fit in with my blue eyed boys!

PS I apologize for the crappy IPhone pictures!  And Lucas makes no apologies for his BEEEAACCHH PLEASE tantrum evidenced below.  Being a toddler is tough.

Longboat Key


I've missed you, Dainty & Decadent!  I was away last week but with great reason...I was on my first weeklong vacation since my honeymoon five years ago!  It was also Lucas' first family vacation where he was lucky enough not only to be staying at a beach front condo in Longboat Key but also staying with his Aunties Adri and Melisa, his abuelo and abuela, mama and dada, and my sister's boyfriend Jeremy (also referred to by Lucas as JJ!) AND, most importantly, he turned TWO on July 18!  TWO!  SERIOUSLY!  TWO!    

My family has been vacationing in Longboat Key, Florida since I was nine years old but I haven't been able to go since 2008 and I have missed it so!  We had a phenomenal time and I literally cried leaving.  Tears...real hot tears.  Lucas is definitely a beach baby.  We packed tons of sand toys and he had so much fun gathering sand and water all by himself that I was able to lounge on the beach chairs long enough to get a slight tan.  The water was warm, the weather was perfect, the food was awesome, and the company was even greater.  We had such a great time and it has me excited for future vacations!  I feel recharged and ready to tackle things.  I will definitely miss my time at the beach and will miss my little sissies and Jeremy very much so but it just means we have to start planning the next vacay soon :-)

Lucas had a great time with his Abuela (my mom)


Isn't my sister, Adri, beautiful!  Lucas will miss his 'Titi' Adri.



Lucas loves his 'Titi' Meli so much and even asked for her on the way back home.  
It definitely made me tear up a little bit.

Here's the whole hang including the boys.

Have a great week!

Swingy Tops


I certainly never dress for the weather because I literally melted in this outfit.  Melted.  But it's okay because as soon as I sat at my desk, I froze.  Froze as in freezing.  I know I talk about the weather a lot but it literally occupies a lot of time in my head.  It's so flipping hot so swingy sleeveless tops are now my jam.  I want a million of them and then more.  I spotted some more sleeveless tops at Target over the weekend so I may buy every single color and convince myself that tank tops are office appropriate because I'm not totally convinced yet.  Riveting stuff here.  It's the heat.  The heat is making me cray...and boring.

Weekend Photo Diary: 4th of July


We had such a great three day weekend that I am getting sad it's over as I type this post.  My husband and I had Friday off so I got a haircut while Lucas napped and afterwards we went for a Target run, of course.  On Friday night, we went with my parents to a fireworks show that the town I live in does every year.  This is the first year we have gone with Lucas and I was anxious to see how he would react to the noise.  As you can tell in the picture below, he loved it!  He kept looking up and saying WOW!  Now, I want to take him back to Disneyworld to see the fireworks show probably in a couple weeks.  We even gave him a sparkler for a hot second, literally, because, of course, he wanted to touch the fire.  Our favorite part of the show is when the orchestra starts playing the official songs for our armed forces and asks for those who have served to stand while their song played.  My dad always stands with pride when the Army song plays as he proudly served the army for ten years.  Lucas strangely stood when the Navy song played and when it was over, he sat back down.  Maybe he's foreshadowing the future.  Sunday was a relaxed day and we hit the pool early then did a little shopping afterwards.  I'm so sad the weekend is over but I definitely feel rested for the work week.  Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Trust Me


It's best that neck up not be shown.  I may or may not have gone to work with wet hair...it was one of those mornings.  Luckily, I did not have any meetings and it was just a day working at my desk.  I'm patiently waiting for someone to invent a machine where I can step in two minutes before I need to head out the door and it will dress me and do my hair and makeup.  One day.

Running Late


What happens when my alarm clock (aka Lucas) decides to sleep in and doesn't give me my screaming wake up call?  I end up wearing slouchy clothes, very minimal makeup, and what somewhat resembles a ponytail.  Oh, and since I was already late, I obviously decided to take pictures to blog about it of course.  You cannot pay me enough to take these sunglasses off.  Trust that I am doing you a favor.

The Happy Birthday Girl



I could have picked another picture to post up there but nope!  I want to show you in all my glory how thrilled I was to turn 32 yesterday and have to work all day on my birthday.  #keepingitreal #allgrownup   

Despite turning into an old lady and having to go to work, I actually had a pretty great day.  I think I was eating the whole day because as soon as I got into my office, my wonderful co-worker had fully stocked my drawers with tons of candy, cannolis, and cupcakes.  For dinner, my mom cooked my favorite meal and funfetti cake which is the bestest cake in all of the land.  Then the eating didn't stop when I got home because my sweet hubby gifted me with chocolate covered fruit.  I was spoiled with lots of gifts and love from friends and family and Lucas even told his daddy to get me a new handbag.  He is such a sweet boy.  Soooo, turning 32, was not so bad of a day.

My Standards


Looking back on my outfits lately, I very much seem to have a standard go to: pants, shirt, and cardigan.  Although I prefer dresses, I, unknowingly, am in another style rut.  I appreciate others than can change it up and be comfortable.  My standard comfort zone, is just that, something comfortable.  I've said it over and over again but I will always choose comfort over style and my agenda is to try to make my comfort more stylish.  I am a firm believe that if you feel you look your best, your attitude will be better and thus more productive.  Just my two cents for the day.

Because It's Too Hot


I do not like to wear sleeveless tops to the office.  I do not like to show shoulders period.  I'm weird.  I know it.  But it's too damn hot to not let loose every now and again.  I'm so wild.  Anyone else have weird things they avoid wearing?

The Era of the Shopping Blogger


Nothing much to see here: just a cardigan and a dress.  Trying to keep up with blogging though, I thought, well, I got dressed today so why not take pictures?  Reading this post on Franish made me think of fashion blogging and where it is today.  When I first started reading fashion blogs, I was starting out my career and most all of the blogs that I read and were popular are not really what's popular today.  I'm not saying that it's a bad thing the way fashion blogging has progressed - it's just different.  I feel like today it's all about shopping, shopping, shopping, expensive, expensive, expensive.  Now, I'm a girl that loves to shop and likes nice things but I still think it's attainable.  For example, I have, what I consider, a nice handbag collection but I can tell you that it took years to collect and lots of hours at the office working on a nice bonus so I could treat myself.  I can look at a handbag and think of a fond memory that is usually attached to the purchase (i.e. honeymoon, first big settlement, first paycheck, etc).  

As much as I'd like to be a high fashion blogger, truth be told, I'm probably wearing something I purchased years ago, and there's probably throw up/milk/cheetos/syrup/etc stains on my clothes but I'm okay with that.  I hope you are too.

Weekend Basics


I have a wee bit humongous obsession with pineapples.  One day when I'm bored and have 5 minutes to myself, I'm going to round up all my pineapple stuff and show you all because I'm not a liar - I'm obsessed.  I was looking for another beach bag because this girl is finally going on vacation (what?!?!) and this bag had me at pineapples...and it's black and white...and it's a beach bag because duh I was looking for a beach bag.  #ilikeitalics

His and Her Watches: Jord Wood Watches

Shirt: Lucky Brand  /  Jeans: American Eagle {Similar} /  Shoes: Tory Burch  /  Necklace: Kendra Scott              Bag: Old Navy  /  Bracelet: David Yurman  /  Sunnies: Polette c/o  /  Watch: Jord Wood Watches c/o

I have a fun post today to introduce (if you don't already own one) a fun and unique timepiece.  Jord Wood Watches are just that - watches made out of wood!  I cannot get over how cool these watches are.  I tried to think of a better word than cool but sometimes, things are just that cool.  But honestly, Jord Wood Watches are beautiful and something I don't see every day which makes them that unique to me.  Jord has a wide selection of different wood finishes and styles so it was hard to narrow my selection down to one.  I chose the Ely Series in the Cherry color and could not be more happy with my choice.

The website boasts that Jord Wood Watches are sustainable, efficient, and influenced by experiential living.  It is truly a beautiful watch!  Each watch is custom cut to fit your wrist and for the week of June 5- June 12, 2015, Jord is offering free sizing with code DANDD4119845.

My husband even got to partake in the fun!  You'll see in the pictures below a mens version of a Jord Wood Watch.  He's wearing the Sully Series in the Black and Maple color. My husband loves watches and he gave this one two thumbs up.  These would make great father's day gifts!  






My husband was so excited to see his watch!  He told that the he and his co-workers had a conversation during the holidays about how wood watches would make such a great and unique gift to give to someone.  True story!  He was very pleased with the fit and construction.  He also said that it has been a fun conversation piece.
