Lavender and Leopard

I've been living in cozy tees and shorts (almost) all summer because this girl still has a serious love affair with sundresses. Pretty pops of color like this lightweight lavender top are my favorite to pair with my leopard sunnies and espadrilles.

Eat Cake for Breakfast

How are we already here at birthday week? Even though I'm scared to be officially in my mid-30's (yipes), I'm super thankful for each day I'm blessed with. Coming off a fabulous weekend which included a great Bar Method workout (duh) and a birthday brunch thrown by sweet friends, I'm excited for the short week ahead and a mini-vacay for the big day. I rounded up a few wishes (well let's be honest that bag is a total wish), and fun pieces that will carry me through mid-fall and others that will be great for a fall trip up north. Plus, one can never have too many lace bralettes... unless you want to wear it alone as a top. If you watched BIP last week, you know what I'm talking about.



So much excitement going on between birthday festivities, my niece who will be born any minute, going to visit family in CT in October, and a big trip planned next spring with friends. Because cruising is my favorite.

What are you thankful for right now?

A big shoutout to my birthday twin Nadine - it's our week girl. Cheers! 

Brunch Perfection

My favorite meal of the week is brunch, because when else can you enjoy all the amazing breakfast food and bottomless mimosas? I can hear the bubbly popping right now! My go-to pieces are easy and breezy dresses for this weekend affair, and I was excited when I found this dress for only $19.

And we can't forget my favorite photobomber. Girlfriend was living her best life running up and down the bridge, and pointing out the lily pads looking for froggies.

Giving Camo the Cold Shoulder

My weekend uniform is usually a slouchy tee paired with shorts and sandals, and of course coffee or cocktail in hand. This weekend, I decided to try Dunkin's brown sugar cold brew. Albeit a tad sweet, it was delish and the perfect pick me up after a Bar Method sweat session.

It's Good to be Basic

I have definitely become one of those girls obsessed with cozy basic tees, and I love how they can be dressed up or down. Add some fun jewelry, your fav pair of jeans, and heels for a fun night out or throw your hair into a ponytail and pair them with shorts and sandals to run some errands around town. LOVE!

A Weekending Good for the Soul

After all the beach and brunch fun the past several weeks, we had a quiet weekend. I had planned to go out and celebrate with bubbles after receiving really good news at work, but was craving quiet time with my little fam after a sudden loss in the family last week. A day date on Friday, a quick Bar Method sweat session, movie night, and taking lil' miss to the splash pad was just what the doctor ordered.
If you're not blue in the face yet of being sick of all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage, it's now officially open to everybody and there are plenty of fun items at amazing deals to be had. You can find my fav picks here including this basic tee for less than $12 which was perfect for weekend errands.

My fav moto leggings are still in stock for only $25 (plus sizes are also available), and I can't rave enough about both colors. I love how they can be dressed up or down and will carry you right through to the colder seasons.

Lots of fun on Friday, and I'm still forever thankful for my new-ish job. Besides all the other amazing perks, having unlimited PTO truly is priceless. Not counting my days is so free-ing, and it's good for our relationship to have time together just the two of us. We started the day with lunch at Vanbarry's where I had a sandwich with turkey, bacon, avocado, and cream cheese - YUM with a can of my favorite sparkling rosé (they also had multiple flavors of frosé that I'll be trying next time) before moving downtown to grab drinks on the lake and go for a nice walk.

Airy Stripes

If there's one thing I can't get enough of in the warmer months it's stripes and airy comfortable dresses. I fell in love with this dress because of the airy sleeves, and it even has pockets! Paired with my favorite wedges, and this to me is comfy-summer perfection.
