4. Lipgloss // 5. Grommet Bag (Only $28) // 6. Leopard Mules

Do you have a pair of favorite shoes?  Mine are probably my leopard pumps. I wear them so much - that I have worn out several pairs.  The ones I currently have should probably be thrown out, but I cannot find new ones that have the same leopard print.

After putting this  outfit inspiration together, I decided to wear pretty much this exact look to work.  I love the mix of the yellow and white with leopard.

Also, I wanted to mention that the cute grommet bag is only $28!  It looks like it would cost a lot more.  Also, the sweater is 40% off - and comes in a couple colors!


MY FINDS & DEALS
I like these fun woven mules - that come in two colors.

Have you seen this cute “moon and stars” quilted bag?

This cute quilted heart bag is under $50.


I like these snake print slides that are marked down.

This striped sweater would be perfect for the 4th - and is 50% off.

This straw tote is only $28.

This cute “seersucker” sundress is only $25 - and comes in two colors.

This gingham ruffle wrap skirt is a bold statement.

My New Favorite High Waisted Jeans

best fitting high rise jeans


Do you have a favorite brand of jeans?

I am pretty picky about my jeans, and for the longest time, I thought I had found my “perfect-fit" jeans; however, recently, I started to hear about THESE GREAT JEANS.  I didn’t think much of it at first - until I started to hear more and more about them; so, I decided to give them a try.

After buying a pair, I have to say - they definitely lived-up to the hype. They are amazing! 

I am very particular about my jeans. I have two main criteria - fit and stretch.  As far as fit, I have become a “high rise jeans” only person. They are just more comfortable.  I do not like the awkward sit down and quickly tug a shirt over the back of my pants (so no one sees down my pants).  These jeans pass that test - they fit really well around the waist with no awkward gaping.  Plus they are just the right amount of high rise. I am not into that super high waisted trend.  My second criteria is stretch.  I have had jeans in the past that continually stretch-out, so that by the end of the day my jeans have become almost a size or two bigger.  These jeans do not stretch-out with wear.  I can wear them over and over - and they stay the same shape with still having enough stretch to be comfortable.

I can honestly say - these are the jeans I wear on most days.  And, my husband would agree. After seeing me wear them day after day - he asked me - are you going to wear other jeans or just these new ones you bought?  

One thing, as far as sizing, they run a little big on me; so, I actually sized down one size.

How to Wear White + Turquoise for Summer

white jeans straw circle bag wedge espadrilles

SHOP THE LOOK

For some reason, white and turquoise just looks like summer to me.  Maybe because the colors remind me of the packaging on one of my favorite hair products that smells like the beach.  If you have never tried MOROCCANOIL - I highly recommend it!  The smell is amazing - and it stays with you all day long!

Want to know something about me?  I have a hard time spelling the word - turquoise.  Anyone have those words that you have Google to figure out the spelling - or use autocorrect (if it finds the right word).  I honestly had to keep looking back at how to spell it.  It does not matter how many times I looked at it - I kept forgetting how to spell the - "uoi" part of the word.

Also, be sure to check back tomorrow - I am going to be sharing my new favorite jeans - that everyone should know about.  I thought I had a favorite - but these have replaced them.  Any guesses?  Check tomorrow to find out!

What is up with this weather?  I am ready for sunny summer weather.  It has rained and been cloudy more days than sunny lately.  It kind of reminds me of years ago when we used to go to the lake in June -  and it always rained.  We would laugh about it because it never failed - the week we picked to go to the lake - it would be a rainy week; however, somehow we always managed to have a great time, even in the rain!

9 Summer Dresses + Tops to Shop

Sandals // Tote (40% off) // Slide Sandals



Is summer your favorite season?  For a lot of people, it is.  I enjoy summer.  I love the warmth, the sun, and being outside; however, summer is not my favorite style season.  I enjoy fall and winter clothes more.  I love boots, jackets, sweater, and jeans.   Summer means hot weather and the need for shorts!

Full disclosure, I do not like wearing shorts - in public.  I have always been critical of my legs, especially the “whiteness” at the start of summer.  We recently had a heat wave where I live, and I had to be outside - and needed to wear shorts, so I thought I would try some self tanner - to add a little color to my legs.  As hard as I tried to have it turn out “natural” - it ended up with those annoying streaks - right down the front of my shin and ankle!  After the debacle, a friend reminded me of this “airbrush tanner” product.  I have heard great reviews of it before - so I am going to give it a try.  I’ll let you know what I think.

Anyone else have great self tanner products they highly recommend?

Do you have a favorite dessert? One of my favorites is a peanut butter cup blizzard from Dairy Queen.  I love the mix of the peanut butter with the vanilla and the "crunch" of the chocolate.  The other day I talked about some of my summer favorites - and Dairy Queen is one of them.  I have so many great memories of going to DQ in the summer with friends and family.  (If you can't tell - I love ice cream!)

As I ponder my favorite dessert, check out this cute summer look.  How about this striped summer tee and those embellished sandals.  I actually just ordered those summer slides. I wanted a more "fun" sandal - so I thought I would give those a try.  I'll let you know what I think.  Hopefully, the "embellishment" isn't too much.

Also, I wanted to mention that the (faux) leather moto jacket is under $100 - it is a great looking jacket for that price!

Five Things I Bought During Memorial Day Sales


Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing long weekend.

Yesterday, I went to a Memorial Day service, and it was a meaningful reminder of the ultimate sacrifice the men and women of our country have given for our freedom.  One thing the speaker talked about was WWII pilots and the extremely high casualty rate, and the extreme conditions inside the plane during battle.  He also talked about the mid air crashes - as each of the planes circled to wait for the entire fleet of planes to take off and join the group for their mission.  It was a mini history lesson - but more importantly I learned more about the sacrifices of the men that serve.  

The service reminded me that this weekend is not all about the "start of summer" or the great deals - but something more important to take the time to remember.

SHOP THE LOOK

This is a "winter white" look for summer.  I love the idea of a "winter white" styled for summer.  Plus, this is a great sweater - that would look cute layered over this lace cami.  I tried on the sweater, and it is a more relaxed fit - so I would definitely recommend keeping with your normal size for a more relaxed fit or sizing down for a more fitted look.  I found the sweater for half price HERE, and marked down considerably HERE.

Plus, there is a 40% off sale at LOFT starting today.  A few picks...
 This cute "butterfly" floral skirt.

This pretty lace peplum top.

Styling a Pink Blazer + Leopard Pumps for Summer



Do you guys have a favorite restaurant that you like to go to - that just makes you happy?  For me, it is Five Guys. I love the burgers and fries!  And, the fun pop machine. Did you know that they are one of only a places (I can find) that actually offers flavored carbonated water, like Dasani.

In talking about things that make me happy, this look that I put together with the pink blazer and leopard pumps is a favorite of mine.  Pink and leopard is "go to" color combination.  Styling a classic pink blazer with jeans and leopard pumps - makes the perfect summer outfit.  And, you may have noticed that even pink gingham mixes well with leopard - like I shared on Sunday.

Is there a color combination or look that is your "go to" that makes you happy?
