Independence Day

In honor of the upcoming 4th of July holiday I thought I would showcase some red, white and blue. I could not be more excited about having a three day weekend coming up and welcome the much deserved break.

Here are some great clothing ideas for your picnic, barbecue, or pool party celebration.

Etsy: Feature Shop of the Week

Do you ever feel like playing dress up just for the heck of it? As I was reading Adored Austin's post from last week it occurred to me that there was still a "little girl" trapped in all of us just dying to try on everything in our closet's and come up with different places to wear the outfits to!

Astral Boutique has a whimsical feel to it and most of the clothing is vintage and from another place and time. So whether you have a themed party to attend or just feel like dressing up 60's mod one day and a cowgirl the next this boutique has something for everyone.

My Obsessions of the Day!

It was kindda a slow afternoon at work yesterday so I took it upon myself to do some online shopping aka surfing because I liked so much stuff I couldn't afford to buy everything I wanted! I am still on a HUGE sundress kick because it has been so dang hot lately.

Here are some of the super cute dresses I found and I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!

Late Night Omelet and Outfit of the Day

I stayed over at my friend Erin's house the other night and decided to document our late night snack, or 4th meal as Taco Bell likes to call it. I LOVE breakfast for dinner and it hit the spot after a great girls night out.


Here is the outfit I am wearing today and to tell you a little secret I usually wear this dress as a swimsuit coverup so I think it transitioned nicely over to work attire with the help of my red cardigan. Happy Friday!

It's Not Easy Being Green!

I almost didn't post these pictures of myself because I think I look gross but I guess everyone has one of "those" days. I could NOT get outta bed this morning, super lazy! It's probably because I have been staying up and reading this brand new book and I love it, it's so funny. It is called 29: A Novel by Adena Halpern.


"What if you closed your eyes, blew out the candles, and your wish came
true?

Ellie Jerome is a young-at-heart seventy-five-year-old who feels she
has more in common with her twenty-nine-year-old granddaughter, Lucy, than her fifty-five-year-old daughter, Barbara. Ellie’s done everything she can to stay
young, and the last thing she wants is to celebrate another birthday. So when
she finds herself confronted with a cake full of candles, Ellie wishes more than
anything that she could be twenty-nine again, just for one day. But who expects
a wish like that to come true?

29 is the story of three generations of women and how one magical day shakes up everything they know about each other. While Ellie finds that the life of a twenty-something is not as carefree as she expected, the sheer joy of being young again prompts her to consider living her life all over. Does she dare stay young for more than this day, even if it means leaving everyone she loves behind?

Fresh, funny, and delightful, 29 is an enchanting adventure about families, love, and the real lessons of youth. "

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I thought I would switch my photos up and instead of taking them in the back of the house I went to the front where my pretty flowers are! I don't have THAT many flowers planted but at least they are growing so I must be doing something right.

It has been so hot lately don't ask me why I have pants on...I needed to take a break from my dresses cause they have been getting a workout I have been wearing them so much. At least I work in air conditioning so it's not that big of a problem for me.

On a totally different subject my camera is on the fritz and keeps creating little lines on my photos so please give me any thoughts or suggestions on what type of camera I should purchase. Happy Hump DAY....

Etsy: Feature Shop of the Week

Today's feature shop of the week is byZIEHL fashion + art. I was browsing on Etsy looking for new and hip shops to add to my favorites and found a dress that I fell in love with and here we are. The clothing looks like it would (and should) be more expensive than some of the pieces are but hey...I am not complaining by any means!!!

The shop sells lots of handmade crochet tops and dresses for a more earthy vibe but I am in love with the one shoulder dresses that are a little more trendy. A couple pieces of art along with handbags, jewelry and accessories make up the store and I couldn't be more happy with my find and excited to share it with you.

Dinner Possible!

You can ask any of my friends and family about my cooking skills, or lack there of, and they will ALL tell you I am impossible in the kitchen. So it came as a complete surprise to me when yesterday I decided to go to the store and get ingredients for not one meal but three different dinners this week.

It is not like I don't try to cook but the end results always disappoint me...I am my own worst critic I suppose. I watch every cooking show the Food Network dishes out and I have tons of cookbooks and I love to eat so you would think that creating dishes would come easy to me but no way mister!

It is with great pleasure I present my meal from last night...Rachel Ray's Cowboy Spaghetti (one dinner down and two more to go.) The rest of the week after my two more meals consists of pizza, takeout, and a pre-planned dinner Wednesday night with my best girlfriends. Life is good!!!

Happy DRESS

I don't know why but everytime I put on this Target dress I feel instantly happy! It might be the colors of the dress or the fact that with so much going on print wise I don't have to think too much about accessories but either way I like it A LOT!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and see ya Monday!
