savory summer

How is today August 1? I feel like Memorial day was last week. My summer to-do list is pretty lengthy for the end of summer to be quickly approaching. I still have a few seasonal recipes I must try. I better start now, because with how fast time is flying by Christmas will be here before we know it.

basic but bold

What a week! I could not be more excited that today is Friday. My internet is finally back up and running at home and I am looking forward to a low-key weekend, that may include a little shopping, of course. I have been on the hunt for a few new pieces for my living room and I love these black and white pillows from Ikea. A great basic, yet makes a bold statement. How fun are these other black and white items for the home?!

drop waist

My most recent purchase was a precious drop waist dress, after wearing it, I’m confident I need to add a few more to my wardrobe. So easy to wear and very versatile for any occasion. Not to mention perfect for this summer heat.  Shop the look, all from ASOS, in a variety of price ranges.

friday finds

I made a pit stop at Forever21 last night {looking for this iPhone case} and ended up stumbling upon a gorgeous pair of high heels, with leather insoles no less. The color, shape and fit is perfect.

down at seaside

Typically we spend July 4th at the beach but this year we decided to change things up and relax at home. Lucky for us, the weather was perfect, and from the looks of the weather channel the rain has been nonstop at the beach. These pictures are from my last beach trip on an outing to Seaside. Seaside is the small picturesque beach town, most known for the set it played for the Truman Show. The small town is now jammed packed with people, shopping, beach homes and bikes.
