But First... Coffee

Another fabulous summer weekend is in the books, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year isn't it? Longer days, al fresco dining, pool, beach, and lake time - I love it all! We celebrated Father's Day, checked out a new to us restaurant, and had plenty of pool time.

I've been stocking up with all the great summer sales lately for myself and lil' miss. I have been buying her so much that H said "Ooook that's enough". There's just nothing sweeter than toddler style, Emily was right when she named her Baby Fashionista. <3 p="">

I have a black lace bralette that I love, but couldn't resist scooping up another one in the copper color as well. Because who doesn't love a fun pop of color?

Pineapple Floatie 

I'm loving my new floatie which is super comfy, and I also have the corresponding mini-pineapple drink holder which was only $1.50! I call them my "big and little" while floating around in the pool. What are some of your favorite summer-fun purchases?

Summer Days

Summer weather is here and in full force, and I couldn't be happier! Any time out of the office has been spent poolside, at the beach, at the springs, and dining al fresco.

A few weeks ago, H and I celebrated his birthday by taking off that Friday and heading to Wekiva Island for a date day.

*Cheers to the birthday boy*

We also celebrated our anniversary (8 years - whoa!) a few weeks early while my mom was here to watch lil' miss, and checked out a dessert bar. Better Than Sex Desserts started in Key West, and now has a location in Orlando so we went to check it out. All I have to say is - YUM!

This past weekend, one of H's best friends from CT (who now lives in Chicago) came to visit. So, we took Friday off for a beach day and spent Saturday poolside before the guys headed out for the evening and I had quality time with lil' miss.

*Amazing day in the water - I'm a little kid who has to be pulled out from playing in the waves*

We stopped at a "new to us" spot before leaving the beach, and enjoyed yummy food, cocktails on the water, and watching the boats go by. 

*I'm already craving another day with this view*

The Heat is On

Even though I'm on team wear summer clothes as long as possible, I was already thinking about what goodies I might scoop up at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Let's just step back for a second, and be clear that I usually look for wearable pieces for July during that sale. The last thing I want to do is sweat just thinking about fall and winter clothes in the heat of July. But us Southern girls (and Northern girls too - because let's be honest it's HOT through September) can find plenty of great pieces on sale come July that can be used anytime. In all the excitement, I completely forgot about the Half Yearly Sale. I restrained myself from buying all the things, but couldn't resist scooping up  this dress and these wedges on major sale that will carry me through summer and the heat of fall.

Around Town

I headed out on a "school night" to venture down to Disney Springs for the first annual Spring Showcase event at L'Occitane for an evening of sipping, tasting, mingling, and pampering with other local bloggers and store owners. I almost didn't go because I was afraid to go by myself and mingle, but I'm so glad I took the plunge and went. 


A group of us rented out a few beach suites at The Ringling Beach House in Siesta Key which was perfect for our little families over Mother's Day Weekend. Full recap found here


Dress {On sale - 40% off}

As I mentioned in this postI was so sick of seeing these wedges everywhere last year... well in blog land not in day to day life - ha! I refused to even think about them, but then this year I came across them again and instantly fell in love. They totally grew on me, and I finally pulled the trigger over the holiday weekend with them being on major sale for less than $100. Run don't walk to scoop up your pair if you've been waiting like me for a great deal.

Peplum Florals

I'm completely settled in for all the fun spring and summer styles from now through about late October with our Florida sunshine (no fall clothing posts here in July and August or even September - you're welcome). This pretty floral keyhole peplum top gives me all the springy vibes, and is also perfect for the heat of summer. And since it's on major sale for only $7 - yes you read that correctly, I may need it in both colors.
