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

  1. I’m going to need this plaid skirt…right about now!
  2. Blogger love of the week: From one Katie to another, I’m loving this casual summer look from Katie of Little Black Book! I’d wear it to a summer BBQ or outdoor concert in a heartbeat!
  3. Two great fruit print finds for your daily dose of fruit: this adorable fit-and-flare watermelon dress (here) and this orange print blouse (here).
  4. These are probably the least summer appropriate shoe, but I love these suede mule slides! I don’t know if they are exactly my style, but they come in 4 colors and two of those are my favorite colors ever…so maybe that is a sign?
  5. The sweetest, most simplest commercial ever. All the awwwws.
  6. An ideal skirt for easy summer work outfits (and bonus, it comes in two different colors)!
  7. Ed Sheeran. James Corden. Carpool Karaoke. So much talent.
  8. Not sure how to process this, but this is a rechargeable clutch that has a scallop trim. Get you a clutch that can do it all (aka charge your phone, hold your stuff, and look cute too)!
  9. 18 products that Sephora employees buy for themselves!
  10. This maxi dress print is a dream, and I’m just going to pretend I could own it for more than two wears without spilling coffee, tacos, or ice cream all over it! ;)

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)!

Home is Where the Polka Dots Are

There are few things that I love more than polka dots and the state of Indiana (my family, coffee, puppies, and stripes are the only things that really come to mind), so what better way to celebrate them both than by pairing them together for a bonus outfit post this week?!

You know, more than my weekly average of a whooping four…

You can also thank Indiana…and its capital city for that one as well. Mainly, because I spent all evening yesterday hanging out with my fellow Indianapolis bloggers and had no time to come up with a creative blog post for your Wednesday viewing pleasure.

But also because, as you all know, they do say that home is where the polka dots are! ;)

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Off of work AND it’s my birthday? How great can a Friday get?
  • I was looking through my past birthday posts on this blog (you’ll have to search for them yourselves…this blog has developed a ton), and a ton of things have happened on my birthday. Two years ago, we were in the middle of selling a house and buying a new one! Last year, I had been blissfully married for one year and two months and in our new house for roughly a year (and drinking sangria). This year nothing is new, but everything is still wonderful (and I’ll probably be drinking sangria later)!
  • This weekend, The Husband and I are head to St. Louis again. We went last year (check out my favorite spots in this post) in mid-July, and it was so freaking hot (99 degrees!) that we didn’t get to do/enjoy some of the things on our list! So we thought we’d go back in early June and enjoy some pleasant weather…the joke is on us, because the high tomorrow is…97 degrees!
  • So a lot of shade-seeking and cold drinks/cold treats are in our future! ;)
  • Oh, and a new pair of perfect shorts never hurt anyone! ;)

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Football started yesterday, but the real team (the Colts) are back in only two more days, guys! I promise to be camped out on my couch to watch the debut!
  • Summer is not officially over until Colts football starts. That’s the saying in Indiana, right? I used that as one more opportunity to bust out these shorts that my mom loves so very much and stole The Husband’s hat for the day!
  • Wednesday snuck up on me this week, so The Husband and I defaulted to Noodles & Company for our date night, and my favorite dish (the Thai Hot Pot) is back! So yum!
  • We also had our fantasy draft Wednesday night, and my team is sooooooo GOOD, you guys! Keep your fingers crossed for me, will you?
  • This weekend we’re headed to another wedding (friend of The Husband) and watching way too much football. So fun!

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?
