Hey everyone! I’m SO sorry it’s been forever since I’ve been on here, but I’ve encountered some technological issues…
Within a couple of days, my computer battery is about to permanently die, my iPhone was dropped in water and stopped working, I had to get a little go-phone, and I switched domains!
The most exciting of those being my new domain. I had some hosting issues and decided to switch – so PLEASE if you follow me (or not), go follow me at my new blog page!
You won’t regret it! :)
Happy Memorial Day to everyone!
I know the big trend for holidays like this is red, white, and blue everything! Some people go all out with American flag shorts, leggings, tanks – everything! I, on the other hand, tend to like using the signature colors in a more subtle way. Here’s my take:
Shirt – mason’s | shorts – American Eagle | shoes – Charlotte Russe
What are your favorite ways to dress for patriotic holidays?
It’s Memorial Day weekend which technically doubles as the first weekend of summer! Yay!
It’s HOT outside and feels beautiful so I went to my go-to summer style. One of my favorite trends is the high waisted short mixed in with some older styles that have stuck around for years (gladiator sandals)!
Top – Ann Taylor LOFT | Shorts – New York & Co | Shoes – Payless
Sorry I’ve been gone the past couple of days – it has been busy! Tuesday night Collin and I were at our friends house all night for dinner and some games. We ended up staying really late and had a lot of fun out there! Then yesterday I finally got some quality time at the pool, a great workout, and Collin made us an AMAZING dinner.
So today, after I woke up I had to sit in on a magazine interview for work and run a few errands. I’m finally back in for the day!
I’m starting to really think about my cousins’ wedding I’ll be attending in a couple of weeks. I was talking to my mom the other day about what we should wear because it isn’t your typical wedding. It’s being held in the Stockyards and seems like it will be more casual than most. Initially I thought a maxi-dress would be super adorable – but my mom and I are both VERY short!
I’ve actually never worn a maxi-dress because of how short I am, but I would love to try it! Here are some of my favorites from Nordstrom that I think might work for us short people for the season:
These all have defined waistlines that would help from the dreaded no-leg image.
What do you think about maxi-dresses and height?
I had every intention of making a post tonight…but I ended up spending the last hour taking shelter in the stairwell of my apartment complex.
My thoughts are with Moore, OK and everyone else in the path of these storms. I am in Northwest Arkansas and luckily, no tornado touched down here… but we did get the same line that went through there and it was VERY scary. The trees outside were completely sideways and the skies were completely black with the sirens going off.
Everybody being affected by this horrible weather, be sure to stay safe and take shelter if needed – better safe than sorry!
Thoughts for Oklahoma.
So it is FINALLY feeling like summer outside and I have definitely been enjoying it. But of course – relaxing 90% of the time means in my pajamas or workout clothes.
I did get a chance to get in some nicer clothes to go out to meet my boyfriend at his work yesterday, and went for a casual look (sans makeup). The weather was amazing in the 80′s and it was perfect to finally whip out my colored shorts I’ve been storing since last year.
Shirt – America Eagle | Shorts – J Crew
I have noticed A LOT of leather on the runways lately and have seen leather products filling up clothing stores. It feels like I’m back in the 90′s with the leather pants trend!
One thing I actually just noticed today really blowing up the retail world is leather summer dresses – and it definitely caught my eye.
Here are a few adorable leather dress finds of mine..
What do YOU think about the trend? Will you be buying in this summer season?
