Outfit Post: Stripes In Between

Monday, you dog. You snuck up on me again, just as I was starting to enjoy the weekend.

Last week was a wacky one when it came to getting dressed in the morning. One day it was a summer scorcher. One day it was a rainy, humid spring day. And the next, fall made an appearance. This outfit was for the day in between the scorcher and the rainy day. Basically, I dressed for summer and added booties. When in doubt, just add booties and you should be fine.

Although if I could find a pair of booties that could also handle all my work this week, those would be a godsend. Here’s to making it a good one friends!

Outfit Post: Lazy Sunday

Yesterday we had a little birthday dinner at our house for my brother-in-law Alex and since I usually look like a big mess for these, I tried to get my act together and look  presentable. I got these white shorts from Island Company a couple weeks ago and have been wearing them non-stop. I love that they are crazy comfortable (i.e. – feel like wearing pj’s) without looking sloppy. I just wish I could tie the bow like they did in their catalog.

I kept it pretty simple with a button down shirt but added these stripe flats and a little bit of sparkle to add some polish.

Oh and I couldn’t help but share a quick pic of the new puppy. His name is still TBD but we’re all in love with the little guy.

 Any name suggestions? If we don’t figure something out soon, I think Hippo might stick.

Outfit Post + Yay It’s a Giveaway: Double Denim with Erin McDermott Jewelry

Okay this is going to start off totally off topic but here goes. When I saw this pictures, I immediately thought of the book Go Dog Go! (you’re probably like “what the what?” right now). See it’s my kiddo’s favorite book and at the end, there’s a scene with a “big dog party” except that every time we read it, my son tells me that I’m the dog sleeping at the party. Last night, he even called me into his room to basically make fun of me and show me that I’m the sleepy dog. He’s two.

But maybe he’s on to something since I definitely look like my dog party doppleganger in these pics. There’s a lot that didn’t make it in here in all their sleepy glory.

Anyways, I did this little combo of a way to wear white jeans layered. I fell in love with this sweater when I saw it here but knew it wasn’t quite white shorts weather yet around here (especially not in the last couple weeks), so I obviously layered it with chambray. And for when it’s a little warmer, I’ll be wearing my white jeans with a black tank top – I can’t help it, I’m boring like that.

The real stars of the show here though are these turquoise stud earrings from Erin McDermott Jewelry. I’m not a big dangly earrings kinda gal so I love finding fun studs and these turquoise ones are just a little bit different than your standard stud.

And since it’s been WAY too long since I’ve done a giveaway around here, Erin was generous enough to offer up a $100 giftcard for one lucky gal to pick up their own pair or any other goodies in her shop. All the details after the post…
