Summer Days are Here!

May 29, 2017

One-Shoulder Top: Nordstrom (On sale for $26!) Also comes in solid white and yellow & white stripe! // Shoes: Jack Purcell–there are also a ton of white sneakers on sale right now–like the all-white Stan Smiths and Nike Roshes! (More favorites above!) // Shorts: Levi’s Wedgie Jean Shorts (also come in raw-edge cutoff version in a blue wash and a more distressed wash) J.Crew makes a similar rolled hem version. I’ve also got my eye on Levi’s 501 long denim shorts, too! If you’re looking for white jean shorts, this high-waisted pair is SO cute and is on sale for only $35! // Bag: c/o Lo & Sons (it’s actually a camera bag!) This Madewell one is nearly identical though and is on sale in black for $88! I also love this version with the whipstitch detail! This one and this one are also similar. // Initial necklace: Similar here in gold and here in rose gold! // Lipstick: Burberry Bright Plum // Leather Jacket: Old, but similar here (on sale for under $200!)

Happy Memorial Day!

What were you up to this weekend?

Admittedly I mean’t to get this post up much earlier today HOWEVERRR I was having too much fun enjoying the weekend and the gorgeous weather! (Thank you in advance for your understanding!!)

To kick off the weekend I got a haircut (amazingggg!) at Sine Qua Non. My hair was getting SO long it wouldn’t even hold a curl anymore and things were getting ridiculous. Don’t worry, you probably won’t be able to tell a difference, I didn’t take THAT much length off 😛 Why do I always forget how relaxing getting my hair cut is? Sitting with wine and having someone massage your hair? I mean…If you’re looking for salon reccos, I can’t say enough amazing things. (I go to Stacia at the West Town location!)

After that, we headed to the lake house which included lot’s of family time, fun celebrations, BBQ’s (Neal’s dad grilled a TURKEY, did you even know you could do that?) and bonfires. It was the perfect weekend!





We headed back early this morning to get a full day in at home, too. We rode bikes around the city and went to L’Patron for lunch–which totally lived up to the hype and I think they honestly might be the best tacos in the city. (I think it might be their red hot sauce. I would put that on ANYTHING. I wish they sold it by the bottle!)

Anyway–a few outfit details before I hop back offline for the rest of the day:

This shirt is on major sale. It’s only $26! Nordstrom’s sale is going through June 4th, but the good stuff is going quickly! It runs big, so size down! It also comes in white (such a great basic tank to have for summer!) and the cutest yellow and white striped pattern, too. I also found a leather jacket similar to mine on sale for under $200! (That never happens!)

These shorts are the best jean shorts ever! The version I’m wearing isn’t on sale, but the cutoff version is! They come in a few different washes, too! I wore both these and my favorite white sneakers to bike around town today. There are a ton of other white sneakers on sale right now as well–the all white Stan Smiths included! They’re 20% off and only $60!

Some additional savings to be had before the weekend is over…

Tuckernuck–20% off all orders over $200

(Yes, this means you can snag some amazing Barbour items at major discounts!) I also LOVE this adorable little white dress. With the buttons?! OMG.

Urban Outfitters – up to 50% off!

(Where you can get Levi’s on sale + it includes home items, too!)

Nordstrom Rack – 25% off more sale items!

Ann Taylor–60% off ALL sale items + 40% off regularly priced items! I’m eyeing this gorgeous blue dress.
