I’m a sucker for a brightly colored wall, so when I spotted this one out of the corner of my eye while driving home from Trader Joes awhile back I made a mental note to bring Jeff back here to shoot an outfit. Luckily a month of so later I finally remembered. There are some parts of blogging that seem really strange to other people. Like stopping in a random neighborhood on a Saturday morning and posing in front of a strangers fence while people drive by. But over time you kind of learn to roll with the punches.
Shift dresses are perfect for summer. They’re not clingy and can be worn multiple ways. I’ve already worn this one four times in the week and a half I’ve had it. To a sip and see, to work dressed down with converse and two more times because it’s such a good piece. I love dresses that are a statement on their own without going over board and this one is exactly that.
I’m obsessing over bougainvillea right now and want to plant some along the fence in our backyard. I was so excited to find this patch to snap these pictures… what you can’t see is it’s on the side of a parking lot with a Baskin Robins and liquor store 😉
Have a great day – thanks for stopping by!
Do you have a summer go-to?! Thanks for reading!
The only thing good about Tuesday is it’s one day closer to the weekend. And today will be especially fun for me because we’re finally seeing our accountant and doing our taxes. Nothing like last minute! Tell me I’m not the only one scrambling this late.
I’m flashing back to a more fun day at the beach in my new Kingdom & State bathing suit. I’m having a full on love affair with one pieces. They’re so easy – you don’t have to worry about anything hanging out and can throw on a pair of shorts to have an instant outfit. Of course I dyed over this one in the palm print (it also comes in a high-waisted bikini), but they have a lot of other cute ones too!
Have a great day – thanks for reading!
I think cutoffs are a spring and summer staple. But if you’re like me and have a hard time justifying spending $100 on a pair of shorts, this is a great time to snag a pair for a steal. This is the most flattering cut. It elongates AND slims your legs.
