Happy Tuesday Friends,

I am so happy that Independence Day is just next week! I love love love July 4th. Something about it just gets me so excited. Every year and it never fails. I purchased this skirt last year and never got around to wearing it. Don’t judge me, you know you do it too. I am getting it out to you this summer just in time for July 4th. I don’t plan on taking much leave, but I still have to be festive around the office. Here is a look I may or may not have already planned to wear Monday the 3rd. ๐Ÿ™‚

Embellished Summer Dress

So I am frugal, and I never buy things full price. That said, when I buy something full price I have to love it, ALOT. So I bought this dress full price from Banana Republic at that. I have been a fan of Banana for years. I love how their clothes fit me. Their dresses are the perfect length. I don’t wear a lot of heels so having my dresses hit right at my knees is exactly what I look for.

What called out to me about this dress is that it is essentially a basic dress, with a splash of fun. Oh and that is exactly how it wears. It is so comfortable, the fabric amazing!

Summer 2017 Reading List

Hi Friends,

Happy official first day of summer! Hopefully that means life is going to slow down enough for you to stop and smell the roses or at least read a good book ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been getting back in to reading lately and I have been loving it. A fashion blogger I follow always gives the best book reviews and each time she provides amazing books that I always love. I enjoy thrillers… one of my favorite books is Gone Girl, and I have a few book reviews I plan do in the near future. Until I get that together here are books I am looking forward to getting my eyeballs on ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy reading!

Happy Tuesday Love Bugs!

I love love love this dress. One day on my lunch break I was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding. Do you all pick out an outfit then when your even gets closer you change you mind. In this case I felt like my original outfit was not formal enough. It all worked out because I found this gem! Oddly enough, we didn’t go to the wedding and I ended up wearing this dress to a baby shower.

Talking about the dress, it is so comfortable. Perfect for warmer weather, the fabric is breathable. Having the slits on both sides makes it so much easier to talk in.

It’s officially summer!!!! In the summer I love to wear brighter colors. I found this dress a few years ago at TJ Maxx, I actually wore it for my bachelorette weekend. When the seasons change I like to put my clothes aways for the off season, I just pulled this dress out for this season and I realized how much I have missed it.

This dress is so comfortable and I like how it is something you can just throw on with flats and it is easy to dress up. How about those bows on the sleeves ๐Ÿ™‚

I love to be comfortable! Pixie Pants are comfortable, and they are cute! The first time I tried pixie pants they were from J-Crew. If you are looking for a more affordable option then I recommend you try Old Navy’s Pixie Pants! I bought these last year but they have a very similar pair in store now.
