Over the weekend I found a similar skirt to this one at Goodwill, but at first I wasn't sure about the length.  Mid-length skirts don't always look good on shorter people, but I thought what the heck for $3 it's worth trying.  I'm excited to try out a look similar to what Jennifer Lawrence is wearing!

Wish List :: Swim Suits


swim suits




Although I don't have any vacations planned this summer, it's always fun to think about getting a cute new swim suit.  Over the weekend I fell in love with a couple suits from American Eagle, but also wanted to venture out into the Internet world for a few others.  From the suits above, you probably have noticed my new favorite look for a top - less of the triangle look and more "shapely."

Long Weekend



I couldn't be more excited for a long weekend.  I don't have a lot planned, other than a sure to be fun girl's day on Saturday.  Hopefully some bbq'ing, beer, sunshine, and relaxation will also be on the agenda.  Happy un-official, official, start to the summer!

About halfway through my day I realized that I was wearing head to toe Old Navy.  I've never worn head to toe any brand before and think it just shows how much I'm loving Old Navy lately.  I love how this look is another way to wear a summer dress on a cooler night.  Of course it's pairing a chambray shirt with the look as well, and that's just one of the pieces I'm loving lately.

Life Lately






Whoops I took an unplanned blogging hiatus.  Here's some of what I've been up to!

1) Framboise Lambic beer from Gold Dust Meridian.  Have you ever had this beer? It's very rasberry-ey and so tasty!
2) Fun new nail polish colors via Amazon (you save a little money even with shipping than the store) - turquoise and caicos and tart deco by Essie.
3) Eating a lot of ice cream when Oregon went through a warm spurt - bunny tracks flavor!
4) My love and I in a "snug" at Kell's on 21st
5) Hefeweizen beer with a water and straw, always.

When I first came across the blog, Gal Meets Glam, I couldn't help but look through every post and got so many fun outfit ideas.  I was inspired by my post yesterday, and this outfit is an example of how to wear a pencil skirt in a more casual way.  I plan on wearing my red pencil skirt with a striped shirt very soon!

Wish List :: Skirts

skirts




Every year when it starts getting warmer, I immediately feel like I'm lacking in warm-weather clothes.  This year is no different, and I feel like most of my skirts are either more conservative like a pencil skirt, or better for the weekend.  My closet is definitely lacking in moderate length but fun skirts so I couldn't help but do a little online window shopping tonight.

Mother's Day


This picture was taken when my mom and I spent a long weekend in San Francisco after I graduated college.   It was the first, but hopefully not last, mother-daughter trip and we had so much fun.  She and I haven't always seen eye-to-eye (but really who agrees all the time with what their mom says?), but now I notice myself doing and saying things that she has always done.  I'm lucky to have such a great mom - Happy Mother's Day!

I'd be lying if I didn't say that I was more than thrilled for seven (!) days of sunshine in a row, and 80+ degree days next weekend.  With this little fact, I couldn't help but be inspired by this look and another idea of how to wear my polka dot skirt with a more casual top for a fun casual Friday outfit or weekend outfit.

Red Pants Strike Again


{Blazer, shirt, and necklace: Forever 21, Jeans: Old Navy, Heels: Ralph Lauren}

If someone would have told me how versatile red pants could be (some ideas here, here, and here) I wouldn't have believed them.  I now find myself being drawn toward them almost as often as my regular dark blue skinnies.  Have you jumped on the colored jean trend bandwagon yet? If not, I highly encourage you to give it a try!

Weekend Happenings





Last weekend I wanted to do little more than enjoy the sunshine and the last couple of days before my boyfriend went out of town.  Friday night I got happy hour with two pals at Brix Tavern. It was my first time there, and I was pleasantly surprised by their happy hour (the fondue was delicious), and am already making plans to go back!

Did anyone see the beautiful moon Friday and Saturday night? I couldn't believe how pretty it was!  Saturday we had a date night at Cinetopia, and saw Hunger Games.  I was a little surprised about how much I enjoyed that movie, and now want to read the books! Sunday, I went on a nice walk to soak up some vitamin D and relaxed the rest of the day! It was such a relaxing weekend!

Fill in the Blank Friday




1.  My bedtime routine includes, washing my face, brushing my teeth, getting a glass of water to put beside my bed, setting my alarms, setting the TV sleep timer, and then putting on my eye mask. (I'm sure that was really interesting to read). 

2.   I am super happy to be home after a busy week, but had a fun Friday night and start to the weekend!

3.  I can't stand peppers because  they taste awful, and smell horrible when cooked.

4. My idea of relaxation would be drinking coffee, sitting in the sun, and reading magazines.

5. If I had an extra $50, I would get a manicure and pedicure!

6. The best thing about a bloggy friend is when they're just as nice in person as they seem to be online.

7.  A recipe I've been dying to try is French macarons!

Happy Weekend!

I can't believe that it's Wednesday again already - last weekend and this week have flown by! This week's outfit is a super cute one from where else, but JCrew.  I really wish that I could afford to buy everything in this outfit, but for now I'll settle on trying to recreate it with my lower priced items in my closet.

Happy Wednesday!

Candy Colored Wall


{Cardigan: Forever 21, Top: Michael Kors, Jeans: Gap, Jacket: H&M, Boots: Guess}

This wall reminds me a bit of Easter themed M&Ms and fruit stripe gum.  So naturally I've been craving that fun-only-has-flavor-for-10-seconds gum, but then was reminded of how it almost immediately turns to the consistency of rubber.  I guess I'll just have to eat one of the two giant bags of M&Ms that I stocked up on  post-Easter 50% off candy rack.  You'll find me doing Zumba tomorrow ...
