Navy Eyelet

Navy eyelet dress

There’s something so easy and mindless about an eyelet dress…it’s both a blank canvas to be dressed up or down, and also works well on its on for the days when you just don’t want to to think. So I’m excited to share this pretty navy number with you guys today–I’ve worn it to work and snapped these photos before dinner with friends on Saturday night (we went to The Smith, which has become one of my favs! The burger and s’mores in a jar are great, as are all the cocktails!)

10 Great Summer Buys Under $100

Gingham bikini (top) (bottom) // Nine West wedges (five colors available!) // Persifor passport case // Tuckernuck dress // Tuckernuck hat (also comes in white) // Bobeau top // J.Crew earrings // J.Crew Factory clutch // Banana Republic top // BP. sunnies

You know how much I love a good deal–specifically any under $100! All of these are are kinda trendy…like enough to be “cool”… but also pieces that go with everything and can likely be worn for seasons to come. They’ll all go with staples that are already in your closet–this one-shoulder top (which I just snagged in the navy) and this top may as well have been made for white skinny jeans. Also can you even believe your iPhone (even the big one) + essentials will fit in here?

Have you picked up any good summer pieces yet this season? I’m trying not to buy more right now but obviously self control can’t be helped for some great finds ;)


My First OTS Top

Happy Tuesday, friends! Did you guys have a nice long weekend? We spent most of Saturday and Sunday painting the living room (in this pretty white/gray) and I’m so happy the blue walls are GONE! The plan was to do the bedroom, too, but we totally underestimated what it would be like to paint a very small space with all the furniture still in it. Unfortunately we weren’t able to paint before moving in, so a lot of time this weekend was spent rearranging things and trying not to fall on top of the television while balancing on a stepladder. The job isn’t perfect, but it looks good and I do think we learned a lot. Next time (for the bedroom, perhaps) I’m hoping we can have a friend who’s done this a few times give us some tricks to a) speed things up and b) avoid some of those streaky spots. Thank goodness for gallery walls ;)
