Sunny Summer Outfit

Jul 10, 2017

Top: Nordstrom (I also have this similar tank that’s only $35 and LOVE it.) This one from Topshop is also similar and only $25! (Comes in tons of colors!) How cute is this ruffle off the shoulder version, too?  // Pants: Levi’s 721 White Jeans (I’ve also heard amazing things about Madewell’s version, and I love this pair by Articles of Society for less than $60!// Shoes: Loeffler Randall  (On major sale right here! But fully stocked here at regular price) I also love this simple version for under $100! // Straw bag: Vintage, but I love this similar one and this one as well! // Necklace: Similar here in gold and here in rose gold and similar here // Earrings: Baublebar (they have a mini version, too! Both come in tons of colors!)

Hii and happy Monday!

We’re officially home from Portland–we got home on Saturday night, and then yesterday was my birthday!

29 has really snuck up on me. I can’t believe next year I’m going to be THIRTY! AHH. I’m a feeling a little conflicted on the subject. Sometimes I want to cry because I feel like time is slipping so quickly through my hands, but other times I don’t care at all, and I think I can embrace this getting older thing. I don’t even feel old enough to be getting married, let alone feel like I’m almost thirty!

Anyway, yesterday we went to dinner at Monteverde to celebrate. We didn’t get reservations in time but figured we’d just wing it and walk in and have dinner at the bar, but they ended up having the best table on the outside patio available, and we got it! It was so good, I would highly recommend the burrata appetizer and the pomodoro!

I was between wearing my new favorite dress and some version of this outfit. (I went with the dress because it was super humid out!) But I’ve been loving slinky tanks like this one lately, and the adorable pale yellow color with the tiered layers makes it so, so cute. It’s swingy too which means it keeps you cool even in the hottest, sticky weather!

You also know my obsession with my new tassel sandals. They’re on INSANE sale right now for under $200 right here and there are only a couple sizes left in this color (they also have black)–but are fully-stocked at regular price right here! They run pretty TTS but when in doubt, size up.

Anyway, if we’re being honest, I’m definitely ready to dive into the week head first. Between time off for the Fourth of July and taking off Wednesday through Friday to go to Portland, I feel SO behind, but it feels really good to sit down at my computer again this morning and get the ball after what feels like a very long hiatus!





Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
