Scorching Hot Summer

Friday, August 19, 2016

I'm sure a lot of you can relate to the fact that it has been HOT. Like, melt-the-makeup-off-your-face-before-you-get-to-your-car hot. If you cannot relate, then tell me where you are and I will be there in a day or two. Just kidding....but not really.

I am normally a warm natured person, so these past couple of weeks of high temps have been just a tad miserable for me. Here are some solutions I came up with in the meantime to help beat the heat:

  1. Bathing in ice water (preferably in a kiddie pool)
  2. Drinking margaritas 
  3. Sitting on the air conditioning vent (you read that right)
  4. Sticking your head in the freezer
While I've only tried two of those four options, wearing maxi dresses is a much more socially acceptable practical option that I've fully embraced. Thankfully, this flowy maxi from Old Navy is perfect for keeping me cool during this scorching hot summer. This printed number has been on repeat several times already. About five times since I got it....I've had it a week. Ok ok- a girl has to keep cool, alright??

What have you been doing to keep cool this summer? I'd love to hear in the comments section! :)

Petite Picks

Monday, August 15, 2016

In the spirit of starting fresh on the blog, I've decided to incorporate a new installment called Petite Picks. Just like My Life Lately, this post will be weekly, and will feature some looks/pieces that I am currently crushing on.

With the summer winding down, and the school year about to start, I've been thinking Fall. (I just wish the weather would get the hint- is it like the surface of the sun near you?) Autumnal hues and prints, and transitional pieces are on my radar. For this first post on Petite Picks, I selected a few pieces that could work now, but would also be great for when the days get cooler. 

What are some pieces you've had your eye on? Are you ready for Fall as much as I am?

       3. Lace-up booties     
                                 4. Floral utility blouse (available in petite!)

Easy Breezy

Thursday, August 11, 2016

This is a look from our honeymoon in Laguna Beach, California. For those of you who have not been on the Pacific Coast, it gets a little chilly with the wind blowing from the ocean. While the weather was gorgeous every day we were there, it did not feel overly warm (Which I loved...I hate sticky summers!!) I wore this outfit a couple of times when we were in Cali because the light tank with the jean jacket and flowy skirt were a perfect combination with the ocean breeze. 

On a side note- I loved my wardrobe in California. There was something very effortless about dressing while there. On several occasions, my husband told me, "California looks good on you." (I took it as a compliment! :)) We hope to travel back someday and include wine country next time! Have you been to Laguna Beach? What were your thoughts?
