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).

I’ve been pretty busy moving and getting radjusting to my new house.  I haven’t been able to take any photos of outfits and its been raining for about two weeks straight but I’ve been trying to snap some pics.  Check out some of my Instagram shots below

In the middle of a food run for the hungry movers I found this striped piggy at Walmart and had to have it!

Even though I didn’t do any major lifting I still needed a break. 🙂

Here’s William with his new guitar.  I still remember when he was three how he would wake up every morning put on his Shrek cd, grab his little guitar and sing his heart out.  🙂

One of the very first things I hung was my favorite metallic mirror.

It’s been raining on and off for almost two weeks…I love it and I also love the new view from my backyard.

During the move I happen to find a box of old shoes and in it were my gold metallic flats that I’ve been looking for.  YAY! 🙂

 

Hope everyone has a fun Fourth of July!

When summer rolls around down here in Florida it comes with inhuman heat and humidity, which only wreaks havoc on my hair (even after an hour in front of a hairdryer I still end up with frizzy hair)!  So lately I’ve been air drying to camouflage the frizz and although I am not 100 percent sold on it, it’s easy to do. I use the hanna thermal protectant oil and Sally Hershberger Shagg Spray that I found for only $2.99 at Ross to get a piece-y look and it works great.  Along with the big hair that I to call “beachy waves” I like to keep my outfits easy and comfy as well.  I tend to keep my focus on tops because bottoms always consist of cut off shorts, a cotton mini or rolled up jeans.  Every year I get on a new kick: last year I was all about asymmetrical tanks and this year it’s graphic tees.   I got this one from Shopbop and although a little bit more than I usually pay for tee, it’s totally worth it!  It’s got a roomy fit which is perfect for summer; the length makes it look like a perfectly worn-in mens tee and my favorite part is the length of the sleeves – its just long enought to be able to give it a nice roll if I’m in the mood too.

When it comes to summer heels I like them to have a casual feel but still give me the sexy height.  For the most part wedges do the trick, but sometimes I want a little more oomph and while looking around for a pair to wear all summer I found these Ragini Slide Sandals by Rebecca Minkoff and I instantly fell in love!  What I like about this pair is that they manage to have every single detail that I was looking for: the wooden stacked heel is comfy and has the casual look I wanted, the ankle strap is dainty and the gold trim glams it up.  I’m definitely going to be wearing these babies a whole lot!

What I’m Wearing:

Dress – $24.99 at Forever 21

Denim Jacket (also seen here) – $39.99 at American Eagle

Belts (also seen here) – $10.99 at Charlotte Russe
