Leather and Lace

Head to Toe: Top, Loft (thrifted) // Shorts, Urban Outfitters // Bag, Old Navy // Booties, Target.

Can we talk about how quickly August is approaching? Scary! Time is in illusive thing, and I'm not sure what I can do to hold on besides wear white lace shorts and soak up some sun when I can. Though Fall is my favorite season, I'm not quite ready for summer to be over. I've barely visited the beach! I think I need to write an end-of-summer bucket list. What's on yours?

Sweet Simplicity

Head to Toe: Top and Jeans, Forever 21 // Sandals, Steve Madden via Marshall's // Raincoat, Target via Continuation's Consignments // Bag, c.o. Women in Business

This outfit subscribes to my new style philosophy: simple clothes, more jewelry. I've always admired the girl who makes a white tee shirt, jeans and a statement necklace look fabulous (think Lauren Conrad). Dressing down is not something I'm normally good at, but going with the relaxed vibe of summer, I'm trying to pare down before the days of fall layering are upon us. This past weekend, I went to a wine festival with my parents and snuck in some shopping at jewelry vendors. The baubles I'm sporting here were some serious bargains, so I don't feel too guilty piling them on.

Country Roads, Take Me Home

Where to begin...It's been weeks since I've posted, and what can I say? Sometimes, real life needs a bit more attention while internet responsibilities to take a back seat. After some much needed me time, I'm excited to dive back into my blog and the relationships I have with my wonderful readers and fellow bloggers. During some of my sabbatical, I was visiting my dear mountains where I've vacationed nearly every year since childhood. Being with family in a beautiful place so near to my heart gave me some of the restorative energy I was needing. These snapshots (some by me, and some borrowed from my brother), summarize the time: loved ones, no makeup and carefree fun. Just revisiting these photos gives me a little zen. I can smell the fresh mountain air. Can you?
