Clinging on to Sweet Summertime

I know that everyone is clambering for fall.... pumpkin spice lattes, light layering, smells of cinnamon and spices, candied apples, and falling leaves...but I'm still hanging on. I'm hanging on to sunshine, water drying on my skin, beaches, pools, smells of barbecues, and fireworks. Summer always goes by so quickly, and fall with have it's day, so I'm enjoying summertime while it lasts! What says summer like a hot pink linen skirt? Nothing. What is better than Target sales during changing seasons? NOTHING. I scooped up this linen skirt for a mere $8.00. It's super lightweight and comfy. Comfy and cute? Fahghettaboutit!

Polka dot chambray shirt: Old Navy--gift
Wide waist belt: Old Navy $4.00 on sale

My favorite way of getting beach waves? The wand! You must get the wand! These eventually fall into imperfect little waves that look like God blessed you with great hair even though for me, that is definitely not the case!

Later, lovelies!

Rain, Rain Go Away

This rain in Atlanta has been way too depressing, so I decided to face it with the gumption of these bright yellow shorts that I snagged from LOFT last spring. I added the scarf mostly to help protect my (sad, frizzy, humidity and moisture sucking) hair from the water, but I ended up thinking it turned out pretty cute!

Yellow shorts: LOFT $12.00 on sale
Navy polka dot cardi: Gap Outlet $8.00 on sale
Tan pointy toed flats: Old Navy $4.00

All About That Ikat

I saw this Ikat shirt in the window at the J.Crew outlet and immediately fell in love with the indigo color and bold pattern. Of course, I waited until it was on super sale and it became mine. :) The J.Crew ad had this shirt matched with a more masculine army green rolled short, which was a cool contrast, but I made it a little dressier by adding a white pencil skirt and pop of color with the belt. The shoes just let the shirt be the party that it was meant to be!

Indigo and white button down: J.Crew factory $12.00
White pencil skirt: Banana Republic factory $ 11.00
Patent skinny belt: Target $3.00
Nude peep toe pumps: TJ Maxx $20.00

The Understated Polkadot

I've been really into these cigarette pants and ankle pants lately, and I love this navy blue version in a subtle monochromatic polka dot. Navy and fuchsia is a combination I love--let's be honest, navy and anything is a combination I love, however, this time I went with a fuchsia blazer that I got awhile back at F21. I literally wanted to rip these pants off of the shelf so that nobody else could steal them, then I realized I was the only one in the aisle, so I toned down the crazy and just stuck them in my cart. I'm wearing this more casual with the longer shirt untucked, but this could be really cute with a tucked in structured shirt, or a flowier blouse tucked in.  The pants are down to the ankle, so I paired them with a nude pump to elongate the leg line and give the pants a more polished feel, although these could easily be worn with a flat.

Button down white shirt with gold buttons: Marshall's $13.00
Navy blue polka dot ankle pant: Marshall's $16.00
Nude pump: TJ Maxx $20.00
Fuschia Blazer: F21 $15.00 on sale

Later, lovelies!

Sweet, Crazy Summer

It's been forever, and I miss my blog world! I apologize for the absence, but this summer, I have finished my on campus graduate school work, gone on two vacations (terrible, I know), and moved to the great city of Atlanta! I'm super excited to be back in the south, and I'm excited to see some different looks now that I'm in the big city. This casual summertime look was when I was in Florida. When I'm in Florida, I feel the right to wear whatever bright colors I please, so I put together this ensemble. :)

White v-neck: Target $6.00 on sale
Lightweight tan and white infinity scarf: $8.00 Forever21
Bright pink shorts: J.Crew Outlet $17.00
Seafoam green boat shoes: Old Navy $8.00 on sale

I free-handed these leopard nails today, and despite the lack of professionalism, I'm loving them! What would polka dots and leopard spots be without a little leopard spot? 

Talk to you soon, lovelies!
