Swing Time



The lazy days of summer are just around the corner and I , for one, cannot wait.  School will be out in just two more weeks - which means we will get the chance to sleep in a little, spend more time outside enjoying our yard and soaking up the sun (with spf, of course).  Activities that are high on my list include lounging in the hammock with a good book, picking wildflower bouquets with my daughter and roasting marshmallows in our backyard firepit...just a few of the many reasons why I love living in the country.  What things are you most looking forward to doing this summer?




What I'm wearing:
J. Crew sweater (here), I Heart Ronson skirt (here), Merona belt, ALDO sandals (on sale here), Forever 21 necklace, Vintage & Monet bracelets, Dockers aviators

Your outfits always look so high-end! Like that necklace doesn't look like F21 at all.

Love this look. So breezy and casual. MUST hit up JCP. It's actually at this now defunct mall about 15 minutes from me. It's literally the ONLY business still open so I'm always hesitant to head over there however there's way too many fab, affordable finds to keep passing it by.

PS: next time you see any J Crew like this top or the button downs you're obligated to clue me in. :)

I love this look! And your blog! It's refreshing to see someone who doesn't post about outfits that are thousands of dollars.

Cheers, Elizabeth
