Pippa and I spent the weekend visiting some friends, and decided to take some photos there since the weather was so glorious! Sunshine and mid-70’s, what more can you ask for on a June day? We finally broke out our summer wardrobe and put away our winter clothes last week, so as you can see we had fun accessorizing with our favorite summer items like my shell necklace and sandals and Pippa’s nautical bag and straw fedora. I’m also thinking the hair-wrap bun will be my new go-to ‘do this summer because it’s cute and simple and keeps my hair off my neck and out of the way. Would anyone like to see a tutorial for the style?

Full-shot Close-up Top Shoes Hat

My brain is definitely in summer mode today! This fun pineapple top inspired my tropical-themed look, and now I feel like I should be off strolling the boardwalk by the ocean and drinking a smoothie! Pink and orange is such a great color combo for summer if you’re not afraid to be bold and have a little fun, and I think this outfit has just the right amount of neutrals to balance the bright colors.

Simple Summer

Close-up Full-shot Top  ShoesSunnies

The breeze coming through the house this evening was simply glorious. I love this time of summer when it starts to cool down in the evenings after a hot day. I went for a simple look today since I wasn’t going anywhere too special, and just felt like wearing a nice and easy summer outfit. Can’t go wrong with denim shorts and some layered sleeveless tops!

Together At Last

Close-up Necklace Full-shot Sandals Hair

This vest (actually the whole outfit that it comes with) has been on my wish list since the day it came out, but somehow it kept not coming home with me. It is one of the best potential mix-and-match outfits available from AG, so how could I keep ignoring it? At last I have added it to my wardrobe, which has never felt more complete. My necklace is another Joann Fabrics pre-made jewelry-making strand with a clasp added to the end; I have a feeling my necklace collection is going to grow significantly with this new discovery!

Hats Off to Saratoga

Full-shot Hat Clutch Shoes Close-up

Although I sadly cannot attend my beloved hometown’s event, I am dressing in honor of the “Hats Off to Saratoga” celebration weekend in Saratoga Springs, NY, which kicks off the thoroughbred racing season! There are always plenty of fun events and venues to explore, but my favorite part is the ladies hat contest at the race track, where everyone wears their most extravagant summer hats! While I don’t have a hat that compares to some of the outrageous ones that have appeared in the contest, my large-brimmed straw hat with its big ruffled flower seemed appropriate. I do hope to make it to the track at some point this summer!

Red Hot Summer

Full-shot Bag Hair Close-up

It was a steamy summer day today! I couldn’t bear to wear more than a tank and a light-weight skirt with the humidity- which I also blame for my hair’s extra volume, though I’m not necessarily complaining. Red always seems like an appropriate color for the hottest days, so I added some colorful accents with some red sandals and a red bag. Now it’s time to stay cool inside with the AC and perhaps a glass of lemonade…

What I’m Wearing:
Tank: AG Picnic Time
Skirt: Clarisse’s Closet on Etsy 
Bag: AG Saige’s Accessories(on sale now!)
Shoes: AGP Beach Set
Sunglasses: TheCraftySewingBee on Etsy
Bracelet: AG Seaside Tote Set

A Touch of Pink

Close-up Full-shot  Headband ShoesClose-up2

I’m all about the pink accents today! A bit on my blouse, a rosette headband, and of course these adorable striped sandals- just the right amount of color to complement my white and navy. Pops of color are always a fun way to spice up an outfit!

Dog Days

Full-shot Close-up2 Hat A Friendly Pup Close-up

It seemed only appropriate that I let my friend’s pup (who I am pet-sitting today) join me for photos on this hot and humid day, as it could easily be mistaken for a mid-summer “dog days” scorcher! A wide-brimmed hat is a must for days like this when the sun is beaming down, and it paired so nicely with this summery halter tank, I just couldn’t resist. I’d call this another one of those “meant-to-be” pairings of 2 items from completely different places that just seem destined to be worn together. It’ll be a summer favorite for sure!
