J.Crew new releases for fall 2013

lights & brights

shirt: Express | jeans: J.Crew | necklace: J.Crew | sandals: Tory Burch | sunglasses: J.Crew | belt: vintage J.Crew | purse: vintage | ring: David Yurman | sunglasses: Blue7

These gorgeous sandals were a present from my wonderful Step-Mom Amy - and I've been wearing them like crazy! I love the bright orange color and wrap around ankle strap. They are easily the best thing to wear during these hot summer days. I wanted to balance the bright color of the shoes with the J.Crew necklace. The softness of the mint color and balance of the black and white stripe are a great way to let the necklace and sandals pop.

dressy casual

top:  Loft and similar here | vest: Old Navy and similar here | boyfriend jeans: Big Star and similar here | shoes: BCBGeneration and similar here | watch: Michael Kors and love this one | necklace: Topshop | sunnies: Ralph

I found this lace peplum top during holiday and wore the heck out of it. When it started to get warmer  I was excited to wear my linen and light weight cotton - I hadn't noticed this lace peplum top for awhile. Then I thought - how can I make this wintery favorite a fun pick for summer? So, I played it up with some casual pieces to down play the dressy feel. 

What wintery pieces would like to wear now?

adventures lately

My sweetheart and I took a fun trip to explore Chicago to celebrate two years of marriage. 

We made it to the Bean on the first day - which I loved! We went to Lincoln Park and explored the Zoo! Such a gorgeous place.

We both agreed that the Second City performance we saw was the highlight of our trip. The jokes were absolutely hilarious I'm still laughing - no really, I am. haha

My sweet sister and I went to the Beyonce concert!!!!! It was an event of a lifetime! And I couldn't have spent the night with a better gal!

I mean, it's Beyonce, she's the queen. Her show was absolutely perfect with more outfit changes than I could keep count of. Incredible.

The outfit for the Beyonce concert. I had to make Beyonce proud. 

Kev and I got to spend the 4th with our families back in OK. It was so nice to cook and play games with everyone.

This was my 4th of July outfit. I finally got the sock bun to work! And it's perfect for summer time when it's too hot to wear your hair down. It looks so chic, it's great!

Isn't this fruit bouquet gorgeous? My talented mama made this for the 4th. And boy was it yummy!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
