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

  1. Scalloped striped shorts for the win!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Big fan of this sunny yellow look from Jessica! Now get me to Charleston!
  3. Love these simple fringed block heel sandals…but how do I choose between the three colors?!
  4. I fell in love with this Kate Spade coffee travel tumbler (even though The Husband said I didn’t need it), so I had to order it when it was 25% off during Macy’s sale (still going on). Isn’t it the cutest?!
  5. 50 “underrated” places (one for each state). I have to say, Indiana’s choice is verrrrry popular for being underrated, but it was still cool to see the picks!
  6. Can you even deal with this lemon skirt? Adorable and perfect for spring/summer events!
  7. This Heineken ad is 100% what we should all strive to be and is now my gold standard for future ads. 
  8. The cutest little strawberry graphic tee ever.
  9. Someone make me this DIY circle tote, so I can use it all summer along. Please and thank you.
  10. The plaid shirtdress of my dreams (now if we could get that price tag to go down)!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Can you believe that I was thisclose to sending this skirt back? What was past Katie thinking? This skirt is obviously a winner…and has pockets…duh! ;)
  • The Husband bought me this beautiful gray purse for our third anniversary this month (leather is the traditional 3rd anniversary gift). His extensive research was…stalking this blog. And he nailed it, because I absolutely love it! It’s a keeper, and he’s a keeper!
  • And if you’ve been eyeing this purse (and my other two ones just like it in red and yellow)…I can’t recommend it enough! Perfect size, soft leather, and no logos. And did I mention it is 30% off today? Go go go!
  • This weekend, I’m driving up north to have lunch with my mom (hopefully my car decides to make it this time) and getting packed and geared up (aka buying all the magazines) for our trip to Ireland in one week! CANNOT. WAIT!

Weekend sales:

Happy weekend, friends! What are you up to?

Goo Goo Gaga for Gingham

Can you even with this skirt? Because I couldn’t.

I basically pulled it out of the J.Crew package when it arrived, put it on, pranced down to show The Husband, and proudly proclaimed it the Spring/Summer Skirt of 2017. So get ready to see it frequently.

The onnnnly bummer about this skirt is it is selling like crazy, and there seems to only be a few sizes left. I’d recommend checking with your local store to see if they have it in stock or watching the J.Crew site for pop-backs. Trust me, it’s worth it!

Because, as the title of the post indicates, I’m goo goo ga ga for this gingham skirt (and did I mention it has pockets!)! ;)

ps. Happy Birthday to my not-so-baby brother, R! Hope you have a fantastic day!

What do you do when your mother nicely hems a dress for you? You promptly manage to not featured it on the blog foooorrrr…I don’t know…maybe 8 months? #whoops

But look Mom, I’m wearing it now! ;)

This beautiful olive green dress used to be this maxi dress (last seen here). Though I loved the way it looked as a maxi dress (so Grecian, right?), I knew I would wear it much, much more once it was safely above my knees.

Because while these giraffe legs are great and all, they make lots of things difficult. Like walking (in general), but specifically walking while constricted by the fabric length of a beautiful maxi dress.

So Mom, olive you a lot for hemming this dress and saving me from myself/legs. Oh, and for about a billion other more important reasons and things.  <3

ps. These Old Navy d’orsay pumps look like a million bucks and are super affordable (they do run big though, as a warning)!

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

  1. An adorable (and navy) anchor sweatshirt? Yes, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: My dear friend Sarah is KILLING it lately. I’ve been pinning every one of her looks lately, but this floral maxi dress and ankle boots look is PERFECTION!  And it doesn’t hurt that her beautiful dress is from Target!
  3. These might be the cutest pair of heeled sandals I have seen. The pastel colors, the circle cutout straps, the block heel. Can they get any more unique and fun?! I think not…
  4. This is EXACTLY how I feel about off-the-shoulder, bare shoulder, peek-a-boo shoulder, cold-shoulder, and one shoulder tops (and seriously, stay away from my summer dresses). Move along, please. But that’s the best part about trends…sometimes you love them, sometimes you loathe them!
  5. I can’t remember if I already linked to it or not, but this circle bag from Madewell is the bag of my summer dreams.
  6. Gimme this navy plaid midi dress…it’s made for my closet!
  7. Be right back, buying this castle across the pond.
  8. Definitely do not need these gingham print flats, but definitely still want them! So cute!
  9. Did you guys hear the news that Jenna Lyons is leaving J.Crew? I can’t tell now whether or not that’s good news for the brand or not, but either way, it is definitely the end of an era. Man Repeller wrote a lovely tribute to her and all the ways she might have subtly changed up the fashion game!
  10. This eyelet collar sweater is GORGEOUS, affordable, and comes in 4 different colors. And yes, I want them all!
