Today’s fun highlights:

  • Fridaaaaaaay! You’re here!
  • Maybe it’s the Olympics (just kidding, those hadn’t even started when I spotted this tee), but I HAD to purchase this graphic tee from Old Navy, because I have actually traveled to all four cities mentioned on the tee!
  • And let’s just say that that cost of the tee was a lot cheaper than the plane tickets to get there!
  • So like I mentioned early this week (here), I spent most of my free time watching the Olympics! I don’t know what it is about this year in general, but I’ve been loving watching all the events and the stories! Maybe because this year has been all about negative news, and the Olympics are a bright spot of pure joy in all of that? I’ll go with that! ;)
  • This weekend, I have no idea what we’re doing. I finally want to start watching Stranger Things, because it’s all everyone can talk about. Yes, I’m behind the times. Yes, I’m so behind the times…that I say “behind the times.”

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Honestly, I’ve lost track of how many days/ways I’ve worn this dress. My bestie, B, keeps asking me…”You’re wearing that dress again?!” And yes, B, but here is yet another way to wear it!
  • I have not lost track of what day it is though! FRI-YAY, indeed! This week has been killer busy at work, and I’m so glad to see the weekend! Summer days at work should just be outlawed, you know?
  • This weekend, we’re headed up north to Michigan to join The Husband’s family for a long weekend trip. We haven’t seen them in AGES, so I’m excited to see how much my niece has grown and catch up with the rest of the family.
  • Annnnnnd I’m going “deep lake” fishing for the very FIRST time. Which obviously means that I’ll come back with the biggest catch right? Beginner’s luck? ;)

Today’s Style Soulmates look was nearly stolen right off the back of Jacey from Damsel in Dior (see the original look here). So thanks, Jacey!

This outfit was the very first outfit that I had pinned after buying this skirt from J.Crew Factory, because it is (slightly funny enough) the same exact skirt! The original one is from J.Crew, and I waited approximately one year later and managed to snag it up for 1/3 of the price from J.Crew Factory…when it was on super sale@

#winning. See sometimes, I can demonstrate extreme amounts of patience…at least when it comes to clothes!

About exactly 9 months ago, I styled this fall Madewell-lookalike outfit (see it here), and I’m back again with a summer edition.

Aka when you want to look like a cool girl, but don’t want to look like you TRIED to look like a cool girl. Exhausting just thinking about it, right?

My formula (why yes, it is super scientific and yes, I nearly won a math medal for it, thank you for asking) for looking like a “Madewell Girl” still remains the same:

Some kind of jean item + no patterns (unless they are stripes or plaid) + neutral colors + simple accessories = Madewell Girl material.

But once again, I’m not wearing a single piece from Madewell (nearly all Target pieces actually), which is why budget style is my favorite style. And if Madewell style isn’t your thing? You could easily do the same sort of thing with Ralph Lauren (plaid + navy + oxford shirt/polo + riding boots) or Anthropologie (anything floral print + a dress + flower crown) or whatever brand you wishfully lust over!

Ready, set, style!

You all seemed to enjoy my first Style Soulmates post (here if you missed it), so I’m making it a monthly feature! Lord knows that I have enough pretty pins on Pinterest (follow me here) to keep it going for approximately 50 years, so let’s put those pins to good use, huh? ;)

Today’s look was inspired by this look by Daphne from Mode and the City (here). She’s probably my favorite blogger ever (all the red and blue combos definitely help her campaign), and she has the world’s second cutest dog (mine wins because the judge is biased).

Daphne’s layering skills come fall/winter are absolutely amazing, but this summer look was a bit simpler for her, which is probably why it was so easy for me to recreate it! A basic white blouse, denim jacket, and polka dot shorts is really all you need to recreate this look, and then you just add in your favorite accessories based on your own personal style preferences!

These polka dots shorts are probably my favs to wear all summer because they’re light and flowy, so any outfit inspiration that gets them on my body is a win for me. But imagine if I had a similar pair in navy and red polka dot shorts…I’d never wear anything else!  So thanks for making a casual summer outfit super easy, Daphne, by letting me steal this look (now if you could just send me your whole wardrobe…that would be great)!
