I can’t complain about how unbearable this summer has been. We’ve had a record number of days BELOW 90 degrees — but with the onset of [college] football next week, I guess you could say that I’m ready for fall. Trends at least. I’m over all the summer stuff hanging in my closet… 

one- Stella McCartney sunnies // two- coral tassel earrings // three- Chelsea28 dolman sleeve sweater (I would order one size up in this for a move relaxed fit) // four- J.Crew painter tee with zips (comes in other colors; 25% off with code SHOPNOW) // five- Olivia Burton watch // six- BCBG booties // seven- Cynthia Rowley drop waist, ruffle dress

wednesday wonders

For the most part, I’m not investing in anything long sleeved until at least September. However, like most of you, I don’t control the AC units here at work and I’m forced to either freeze to death or layer like hell to get through the day. Hence, the long sleeved blazer and merino wool sweater. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…

Summer might not officially start until this weekend, but mid-90 degree temps have arrived in the Raleigh area. Meaning? The looser, softer, and lighter weight the clothing… the better. 

one: Asos print cami and shorts // two: electron ring // three: Loeffler Randall “Starla” sandals // four: TopShop drop waist dress ($20!) also comes in orangepurple, mint, red, and blue // five: TopShop palm print romper // six: Saint Laurent shoulder bag // seven: Schutz pumps // eight: Madewell leopard shift // nine: Aldo pumps // ten: Oscar de la Renta tortoise tumbler and wine glass // eleven: Madewell track shorts //  twelve: sealife dessert plates // thirteen: Vince silk dress

Weather like this makes me want to move to the coast. Where I would have a permanent excuse to live on the water (oh, a breeze. how lovely!) in casual dresses and sandals.

Sadly, life doesn’t accommodate for that sort of thing. Damn it for having to put food on the table and a roof over our heads. Guess we have something to work towards at least. And thank God for vacation.

Happy Thursday, peeps.

I’ve been a particularly shitty blogger as of late.
I bring no excuses. Just thought I’d pop over and show you some of my favorite things from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale (as Ann suggested via Disqus last night). Since apparently all I can muster these days are shopping posts :)
1: Splendid dress which I can just happen to vouch for since it’s currently hanging in my closet // 2: Steve Madden sandals // 3: Joie a la Plage leather sandals // 4: Cosabella lace bra // 5: oversized teeshirt dress a steal at only $21! // 6: cutaway shoulders sheer insert tank (also a pretty great deal) // 7: Beautifully gorgeous Vince pumps that are- sadly- sold out in my size // 8: TopShop trapeze dress // 9: Tadashi Shoji lace dress // 10: Burberry watch (ultimate wish list item) // 11: Milly clutch // 12: Trouve sandals which I love so much that I’ve actually blogged about before. They are also- sadly- not available in my size. 
Happy shopping! Any summer sale items you’ve got your eye on?
