The weather is PERFECT. And I am sassy like a Cheetah today. Can’t you tell??? I would love to live in these leggings all the time. Embrace my inner cat. MEOW. Melissa actually convinced me that I should go ahead and buy these black version of her brown Madewell boots. I must say, I lusted these boots for a long time. All of these long loose layers are singing to me these days.

So the wonderful Jessica of What I Wore decided to put together a Breton Stripe Tuesday. Since I definitely have a slight stripe obsession… it was only natural. I was down in Virginia for my sister’s graduation from Nursing School (CONGRATS SISTA!!). I wanted to wear something with a nautical flair. The gold accents were the perfect way to snazz this up. After the graduation, we were able to take a walk on the beach with my whole family. Sand in toes is heaven. What a great weekend!!
Don’t forget to head over to Jessica’s page to check out the other lovely ladies of the stripes.
So I couldn’t wait to strut around town with my screen printed anchor tote. I can imagine stuffing a beach towel in here, or a packed sandwich, or even some fresh flowers. I feel like a little sailer in my blue dress with the crisp collar. So the anchor was very fitting. This is one of the first times my little feet have seen the light of day. Let’s just say that I didn’t paint my toesies yet and Melissa would yell at me for no toe polish. So we will keep a nice distance back from them, K? I am starting to get REALLY excited for Summer. Please come faster!!! HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!

Carrie Bradshaw that is. This flower has sat amongst many other accessories in a drawer for WAY too long. The minute I saw this I knew it was going to turn me into the fabulous Carrie Bradshaw the instant I pinned it to my little black dress. Well, I will say, this flower brightened up this simple dress. I was headed to the orchestra this night. Something classic would have to do. I also went with a BRIGHT pink lip and virtually no eye makeup (see last photo!) Thanks to my trusty curling iron, 5 minutes later I was ready to go. I also have to thank our reader CarrieNYC for taking these photos for me and making me laugh!! I know everyone out there loves Carrie and her style as much as I do! Carrie can I be your friend??? HA!

Brian always tells me to put down my black clothing and pick up some white or color. This day I listened. Hahahahaha. It was all about neutral colors and tones. I have been dying to wear this new jacket from the H&M Garden Collection! I find it a great alternative to the classic trench because of its bubbly shape. It’s also light weight and will allow me to wear it further into the summer.

necklace: self made via old junk
If you haven’t noticed, I am exploring some different silhouettes in my wardrobe lately. The minute I saw this sweater I knew I had to have it. I imagine frolicking on the beach in this. DONE AND DONE. The length is perfect to cover my tush if I want to wear it with leggings which is what I did today. These photos are taken in my Mom’s glorious garden. She has filled it with all types of wildflowers. GOOD WORK MAMMA!

Rittenhouse Square is definitely one of my favorite places to people watch, stroll and drink a cup of coffee. These photos are actually from the day we dropped Andrea off at the airport on her venture home. I’m still sad she left. COME BACK SOON!!! Brian and I grabbed a bagel and coffee and headed to soak up the sun. By now, Im sure you know I have a thing for band tees / rock and roll. I have an old soul and love the rock of the 60s and 70s. Being comfortable on a lazy Sunday was my top priority, but I wanted to find a little garnish to top things off. This is one of my all time favorite hats and I am sure you will be seeing it ALL SUMMER LONG.
