Decorating With Plates

I debated on DIY curtains but realized I was way too busy to tackle that right now so I kept my damask room darkening curtains from Target.

I actually love love love these curtains but I do eventually want a change. So I decided to look through some boxes I labeled decorative (aka stuff thrown around the garage) and I came across a bunch of antique plates that I always planned on hanging and use as decoration.

They didn’t offer much help for my room or living room because they didn’t match but I think they’ll be perfect in the kitchen.  Most of them where handed down from my mother in laws antique collection but I also picked up a few of my own when I lived up in Jersey and went antiquing all the time. My original plan was to hang them inside an empty frame  but I wanted to see what pintrest had to offer and I found some amazing ideas!  I might still stick to hanging within black frame to modernize them a bit and it’ll give me the option of easily swapping them out.  Tip:  Look at stores like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx or even Goodwill for affordable stylish plates.

Summer Shoe Shopping at Famous Footwear

There’s still plenty of hot summer days left and nothing screams summer like a pair of  espadrille’s and I always invest in a nice pair that lasts year after year.  Normally I buy a pair of wedge’s this year however the flat espadrille is all the rave and I love it!!  It takes the casual espadrille to a comfier level without sacrificing any style.  Great practical shoe to pack for a summer getaway and it can be worn in place of sneakers with cut off shorts, dresses or even jeans.

I found these adorable striped espadrille’s at Famous Footwear for only $29.99 but I got them for $25 because I had some saved up some points with their Famous Footwear Rewards program.  I love that they have a reward program because affordable stores like Famous Footwear are a favorite among families and who doesn’t want to get something back and save a few dollars?  I’ve shopped there for years for my family and with prices that low I can be pretty dangerous in there.  I go in for one pair and always come out with two or sometimes even three.

Striped Espadrille – $29.99

While I love my striped espardille’s and certainly did not need another pair of shoes I still took another look around and found these strappy metallic sandals and I gotta say they are pretty fabulous.  I’ve been looking for a metallic pair just like these for a while and they will be perfect to wear with just about all of my summer favorites and for only $29.99 I figured why not!.  I love metallic sandals because you can still dress them up and be comfy making them a must have for summer days or nights.  Check them out below.

The summer craziness continues!  I manage to sneak off to the beach.  It wasn’t for long but at least I got a little color.

Went shoe shopping at Famous Foootwear and found these super cute stripe espadrille’s.

 

Swung by parents to celebrate my dads birthday which kicks off a very busy birthday season.  There’s at least three birthdays every month all the way till February. Fun stuff! 🙂

It’s been one of the rainiest summers ever.  I love it but making plans outdoors is almost impossible.  I saw this double rainbow after a really bad storm slammed us.  Wish I could have got a better shot but it’s still beautiful.

Robert got to sneak off to the movies with my parents.  He loves the one on one time.  🙂

 

Simple avocado and corn salad is a definite summer favorite.  So yummy and easy we just chopped up 1 whole red onion, 1 whole avocado, 1 can of white sweet corn and 5 cherry tomatoes.  For the dressing we used 1 tablespoon of vinegar, salt to taste, pepper to taste, 1 teaspoon of olive oil and a a splash of lemon juice.

I love me a good perk!  Got this perk from eclos and I can’t wait to try them out.

I love my new curling iron by Hot Tools!  It’s a 3/4 inch ceramic barrel that managed to curl all my thick hair in about 15 minutes.  Bonus:  it smoothes out the frizzy!

I find dressing for florida summers a bit of a challenge sometimes.  It’s too hot for jeans and layering but wearing shorts and summer dresses all the time can get a bit monotonous.  Sometimes I just take the pain, crank the ac and put together an outfit that’s more me. 🙂  Yesterday I wore a chambray button down from Walmart (seen here), yellow Old Navy tank (seen here)  and a animal print mini skirt.  The whole outfit was under $30 and super comfy (as long as the ac was on high lol).
