Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. These striped sandals are the things that style dreams are made of. Striped, flat, and comfy…yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Someone explain to me how Taylor looks so great in basic tees? Anyone?
  3. I love a top with details, and this Caslon top has some great embroidery! It also comes in several color options and perfect for summer!
  4. This is an old article written by Jenna Lyons, but I just discovered it…and we all know how much I love her. But did you know a watermelon skirt changed her life? See, we’re all humans after all! ;)
  5. Item No. 435 that I love from Tommy Hilfiger: this contrasting trim cardigan that comes in 4 colors…now which color should I get?!
  6. I think The Limited is spying on me…and knows about my undying love for red, blue, and stripes. Need this dress (please come back in tall sizes)!
  7. My brother has Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook (here) at his apartment, and when we were there last month, I flipped through it. Uhhh…it looks amazing, so I totally need to get my own copy and follow this lady’s lead and cook with it only for a week! Yummmm!
  8. Three words: affordable. scallop. flats! Someone stop me from buying them ALL (especially the leopard print…surprisingly cute)!
  9. I dare you to NOT cry when you watch this little girl unbox her new look-a-like doll. Spoiler alert: all the tears over here! What a great company and a great way to feel “normal.”
  10. This striped midi dress is absolutely gorgeous! I’d wear it to work with heels and a blazer, and on the weekend with a denim jacket and wedges! Snag it before all the stripe-obsessed bloggers do! ;)

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Grooving

You know that Taylor Swift is now going to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day, right? You’re welcome! Shake it off…shake it off!

In other news….I styled this polka dot dress a few weeks ago (check it out here), and I love how versatile it is. I feel like I use that word ALL. THE. TIME. on this blog, but it’s honestly what I look for (and what I think a lot of you look for) when it comes to wardrobe purchases.

We’re not constantly wearing giant tutu skirts or an off-the-shoulder top (why are those EVERYWHERE right now) on this blog or in real life. We’re looking for things that can take us from the office to dinner dates to weekend adventures! This polka dot dress is perfect for all of that (and more). I’m still finding countless ways to wear it which is exactly what I want out of most of my purchases. Ain’t no shame in re-wearing and remixing again and again over here!

And rumor has it that polka dot shirt dresses are PERFECT for Taylor Swift dance parties. Just in case that is on your checklist as well! ;)

Short Hair, Kind of Care?

Debuting the short hair on the blog, and here’s how I feel about it!

MEH.

I love the style, but I haaaaaaaaaaate the length. I feel like I always end up with a hairdresser that cuts it too short (anyone else relate to this?). I would love it if it was about 2 inches longer, which according to Google will be in roughly four months (hey there October).

But in the meantime (and let’s not kid ourselves…after hours of whining to my mom and The Husband), I’m going to embrace the breeze on my neck, my shorten blow drying time, and my new hair.

Plus, when you’re wearing your favorite new skirt and the perfect summer outfit (with a hint of print mixing…can you see it?), how big of a deal is a slightly-too-short haircut anyways? ;)

ps. Since I had a backlog of photos, the next week (or so) of outfits will feature my longer hair, so don’t get too confused…I didn’t glue it back on! ;)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Okay, confession…I actually have a four-day weekend. It’s okay to hate me.
  • And yes, I totally want you to read the title as a rhyme…I know that means you have to pronounce weekend as week-OND, but it’s fun. I promise. ;)
  • Guess who conned their mom into coming down today to help me replant our front yard flower bed? This girl!! She got all the green thumb genes in this family and somehow managed to pass down NONE to me. This is her payback. ;) #thanksSchmom
  • This week’s date night was our first time out at Ralston’s Drafthouse, and if you’re an Hoosier that likes seafood, you have to go sometime and try their crab and spinach dip! So good!
  • This weekend we’re staying put in Indianapolis after all our traveling in May. We have a few home projects we need to get done, and then we’ll be trying some new places and activities. Our super-cool art museum has a really unique mini golf course right now, and I definitely want to check that out!
  • Onto the sales, because Memorial Day sales are usually some of the best of the year, and you know I’ll be ordering some things!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. A gingham blazer (that’s not from J.Crew AND goes on sale every other day)? Yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: When Kimberly does a post for Old Navy, I pin all her pictures and stop and buy ALL the things that she features. She truly is the master of affordable fashion!
  3. This workout tank just gets me (#margsforlife)!
  4. Now that I’m done with the Whole30, I’m on a mission to find out the most PERFECT chocolate chip cookie (my favorite), and this list may have narrowed it down to the top 10 recipes for me to try out! Yum!
  5. The perfect neutral heeled sandal to take you from work to summer nights out!
  6. Reason number #179 that I love Tommy Hilfiger: this striped collared tie blouse! 
  7. The 90s are most definitely making a comeback, and while I’m not excited for 90s style to return (pass on chokers 2.0)…I am excited for the 90s Bath & Body Works scents to return! Flashback to middle school, you all!
  8. Another day, another gingham dress that I love. And bonus? This one is under $70!
  9. This short film won 59 awards, got the filmmakers jobs at Disney and Pixar, has a great message, AND is about a cute puppy! So that definitely means it is worth four minutes of your time!
  10. Love these dressy striped red/tan/blue shorts! Great with a white tee and statement necklace or with a light navy sweater and espadrilles! Or if shorts aren’t your thing…try this dress in the same print!

ps. Sorry for the 10 million photos of my outfit today! This was probably my favorite outfit (and all Target items!) and set of photos recently, so it was hard to choose which ones to eliminate.

pps. Trust me, that does not happen every day! It’s usually like “which one has the least amount of hair in my face” or “which one am I making the most normal-ish face in…does that count as a smile”?! #bloggerproblems ;)
