Mod Moment


Whaddya know? I was feeling a little "mod" this week.  I wore this ensemble to a dinner date with a friend on Wednesday. I saw this tunic from Anthropologie several weeks ago and kept coming back to every time I perused their online sale section. I knew I wanted it, loved the style and the price was right, but was a little unsure on how to style it. Then a light went off....LEGGINGS!! I can wear my stretchy, forgiving, comfy black leggings with it. BINGO!! Purchase immediately made! This will be a good one for a few of my solid blazers in the fall too...in about two months. Maybe sooner...fingers crossed.

In other news, I teamed up with The Jeweler's Wife & Gigi New York to giveaway the Kendra Scott earrings and clutch I am featuring today.

Stop by Gigi New York's website for your chance to win! Two lucky winners will be chosen! Entry details can be found here. Good luck!!

The Jeweler's Wife also offers $10 off your $30 purchase by using JW1030 at checkout and FREE shipping. Happy shopping!

Enjoy the weekend. I know we plan on making the most of it. School starts on Tuesday! How did this happen? Wasn't it June 1st like last week?

Carefree Days

ChicWish Embroidered Boho Top

Lately have been gravitating toward more boho inspired styles, prints and designs. Maybe it's because of the current season and my free-spirited way of life during the summer months. One of my go-to boutiques for boho pieces with lace and embroidered detailing is ChicWish. The proof is in the pudding here, here, here...and again today with this breezy top

Unfortunately, those carefree days of no schedules and marching to the beat of our own drum are coming to a close. We are headed back to school next week and back to early morning routines. Part of me is heartbroken, the other half is ready to get back into the swing of things, but NONE of me is ready for fall, pumpkin anything or even remotely getting into the "holiday spirit". 

I am a lover of Summer and savoring every single last bit of it. I have one more month to bask in it's glow and then I'll talk spiced lattes, caramel apples, sweaters, scarves and football....and maybe just maybe start my Christmas shopping. Not holding my breath on the latter. 

LONG LIVE SUMMER! Anyone else with me?

Loving Them Was Red...


I am not sure if red skinny jeans are still a "thing" in the world of fashion trends. I know they were leading the popular pack a few years back, about the time when I actually bought the ones I am wearing today. It seems distressed/destroyed denim are currently the crowd pleaser and getting the most applause as of late. Two of my favorite pair of jeans are actually the ones that are worn in with a few holes on the knees, but sometimes it's fun to go bold. Adding my beloved chambray top, Converse sneakers and some pops of print kept this style comfortable and current.

So, what do you ladies think? Am I behind the curve? Should I throw in the towel on red skinny jeans? Are they a fad of the past? Okay, don't answer that because I just can't seem to let go of these pants and think they still deserve some love and attention.

P.S. Does this post title make you want sing a certain song?
