Simple Stripes

Sharing My Sole

 
Something about summer has me gravitating towards the simplest outfits, like this striped tee and jeans. And since I’ve curated quite the little collection of striped t-shirts, let me tell you this one is up there on the top of the pile. As we head into this long, holiday weekend, I hope yours is filled with stripes and ice cream.

Friday Favorites

Hello sweet weekend, so happy to see you. My week was long and challenging, so I’m looking forward to heading to Lexington, Kentucky this weekend to see one of my college roommates get married. Cheers to Friday!

A few favorites from around the web…

You guys. I tried these retinol eye masks this week and whoa. They are awesome. They seemed to decrease under eye bags and little wrinkles almost immediately. Worth a try.

I need these wedges and they are under $50. Done. Also really like these in nude.

Love this dress for another summer wedding coming up.

If you follow me on Instagram, you can shop my looks by signing up with LiketoKnow.it and then get an email with all the outfit deets by simply liking the photo. It’s pretty much my new favorite (and easiest) way to shop.

I really enjoyed reading this article. What a great reminder that it’s ok to do nothing sometimes.

Nothing But Navy

Sharing My Sole

 
This little navy number has quickly become a summer staple. I wore it to my dear friend’s engagement party and then to the office with a light sweater. And I’m certain I have said this before, but easy summer dresses are my jam.

(Psst: My dress is currently on sale with an extra 30% off. I also love this skirt, this tank and this easy tee.  Use code EXTRASALE).

Stars & Stripes

Sharing My Sole

 
This little striped sundress welcomed in summer this weekend.  This sundress and very flat hair from the humidity.  I swear I try everything to boost up these roots and it’s useless.  But that’s a different post for another day.  So, if you happen to be planning your July Fourth attire, might I suggest this dress paired with this scarf?  Can you say America?  Stars and stripes style.

Friday Favorites

Some weeks are crazier than others and this one was a bit nuts, so apologies for the lack of posts.  The blog needed to take a back seat this week.  I’m headed into a weekend with minimal plans and I’m looking forward to unwinding and relaxing.  Happy Friday!

A few favorites from around the web…

J.Crew has 30% off some amazing summer pieces like this dress and this statement necklaceThese earrings would spice up any outfit and would go perfectly with a sundress.  Plus my favorite crossbody bag is on sale.  Yes please.

This campaign from Pantene really resonated with me… Why do women say sorry so often?!

Love this skirt on sale from Madewell.

Because I have a maxi dress obsession…  Might need this one.

Enjoyed this article about the small, happy life.

These pumps are so chic (and on sale!)

Bloggers Who Budget: Pastels for Less

Sharing My Sole

When I was putting together my outfit for this month’s Bloggers Who Budget collab, I realized one thing…  I have a lack of pastels in my closet.  Probably because I’m consistently drawn towards neutrals, but pastels have not made a strong appearance.  And then I remembered I had this gem of a dress from TJ Maxx, which I snagged for 30 bucks (humble brag).  And I’m all about easy dresses in the summertime.  (Ahem, like this one under $50).

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends. It’s hard to believe it’s already the middle of June. This summer is a busy one with a crazy work schedule and weekends full of bachelorette festivities and weddings, but I’m doing my best to savor the small moments of summer and to give myself permission to do nothing every once and awhile. (I struggle with the art of doing nothing…) Hope your weekend is sun-filled and wonderful.

If you’re a planner like me, Kate Spade’s new 17-month agendas are available! They start in August and go into 2016.

My favorite eye cream is on sale.

I’m already thinking about Fourth of July ideas… Told you I’m a planner.

Ray-Bans are on sale! Yesssss.

Love this summer dress from Madewell.

I was contemplating not posting this outfit because it’s not one of my more “glamorous” looks, but let’s be honest, a lot of my weekends are spent running around in jeans and a t-shirt. And I like to keep it real. I think half of my life has been spent in pursuit of the perfect t-shirt… It’s like a mystical unicorn and I just keep searching. A few of my favorites have been from Madewell (like this one) and J.Crew (vintage cotton tee), but I will probably continue my search until I find “the one”… And then buy it in bulk.

Little Black Dress

Sharing My Sole

 
I scooped up this little dress a couple months back for a bachelorette weekend and it was quite the find. A sweet shift dress with a sporty racerback for under $50? Don’t mind if I do. And these heels were a sale steal before Piperlime closed up shop (tear) but I’ve linked to some similar options below. Neutral heels for the win.

Friday Favorites

Hello Friday, nice to see you again. It’s crazy to think we’re already into the first week of June, and yet I still don’t feel like I’ve hit that “hello summer” mode. We had a bit of a cool down this week which had me sporting my spring jackets and sweaters again, but this weekend should be sun-filled and beautiful. Hope yours is lovely!

I ordered this maxi dress and it’s black and white summer perfection. And under $40.

These sandals are just awesome.  And these Sam Edelman wrap sandals.

Has anyone tried Headspace? It’s a great meditation and mindfulness app that I just recently tried out. I want to commit to 10 minutes a day for a healthier, happier noggin.

This sweater (under $40!) would look so cute with white jeans.

I’ve been trying to keep my face out of the sun and this floppy hat is perfect for under $20.

J.Crew has 30% + free shipping (!!!) through tonight at midnight.  It’s time to stock up on my favorite tee now available in short sleeves, plus this kiss kiss tee.  I’ve had my eye on this dress for some summer weddings and I adore these earrings.
