Happy Hump Day! It’s the LAST week of school here and I feel like I’m in a race to get as much as I can done before the kids are at home all day every day. I love summer and I want to enjoy it.
Sad news, my favorite camera broke. I loved my little Sony NEX-5R that I received to facilitate a blogging promotion last spring. It was such a handy size, and it worked great for my “self portraits.” I’ve had to resort to an old camera that for some reason produces grainy shots like many of the ones you see below. Basically, if the photo is indoors, it’s pretty pathetic. Oh well. I guess this is what they call #bloggerproblems.
I have a slew of photos from this week, I have no idea why. So here goes.
I wore this outfit to volunteer at my daughter’s 2nd grade “end of the year” party — which turned out to be OUTSIDE, not in the classroom. Oooops! I got a little crispy.
I love this ivory crochet sweater and the coral jeggings, both from CAbi. I received these as part of a blog campaign last month. The shoes are my Sam Edelman Romy Wedges, although I admit I didn’t wear them to school. I wore a comfort sandal for, well, comfort. HA! But I took my outfit photos with these because they’re so much cuter, and they’re what I would wear if I could. The Rebel Pendent is from my Stella & Dot boutique, and the white and gold enamel bracelet was from a blogging promotion a while back.
This Marc Jacobs satchel is currently my favorite bag; unfortunately it’s no longer available. I bought it on clearance (I refuse to pay full-price, but I do love a designer bag.) I don’t know if they’re still available, but these bracelets are from a Haiti fundraiser. I ordered a few to support a friend who is adopting from Haiti.
I wore this next outfit on a date night with my husband. We went out to dinner. Everything in this outfit is old so I have no links.
Movingrightalong. This outfit, I wore into Philly to see The Wizard of Oz with my daughter at The Academy of Music. It was a weeknight so I knew I didn’t need to dress to the nines. Still, I wanted to look nice. Yes, white jeans again. White jeans are always a good idea in the summertime. I paired them with this royal blue top from Banana Republic (last year) and my Stella & Dot Fiona necklace.
I’m cheating again in the shoe department. I would have LOVED to wear my Tory Burch Miller Sandals. They are so cute, and when I’m not having foot issues, they’re quite comfy. However, right now I need more support so I switched them out for a pair of low-heeled wedge pumps for the event.
I thought the pink clutch added a fun pop of color. And since the necklace had gold accents, I pulled out a gold bracelet to wear as well.
I still have more. Can you believe it!?
I wore this on Saturday. The jeans are my cigarette-leg jeans that I cuffed to make them seem more summery. The coral tee is from LOFT. It’s just easy to wear, and the color seems to say, spring! My sneaks are the Ecco Biom Lite Flow Toggle that I picked up at The Walking Company a few months ago. They’re nice for wearing with casual jeans when I need something with more coverage than sandals but don’t want a clunky running shoe.
The necklace is the Open Hearts Necklace from Studio Jewel, proceeds benefitting my friend Amanda. Isn’t it gorgeous? They’re still available, if you want to grab one for you or a friend.
On Sunday, I wore my orange dress again, this time with the Fiona Bib Necklace and my Dansko Sophie Sandals (comfort first!) The fabulous perforated tote is from Stella & Dot.
Finally, my token activewear outfit. I wore this to shop for bikes yesterday. The capris were a press sample from Fabletics, and the Under Amour racer-back tank was an impulse buy at Dick’s Sporting Goods last year when I was training for a half marathon and wanted something lightweight and cool for those hot summertime runs. Sometimes I wear it around the house just because it’s comfy and I actually think it’s kind of cute if you like that athletic-girl vibe. The bike shopping was a success. I can’t wait to pick up my new bike later this week and take it out for a spin on Saturday!
And that’s that!
