Summer Sandals

Posted on

First off, I greatly apologize for the lack of posts this week. I’ve had a low-grade migraine all week and haven’t felt much like typing, much less putting an outfit together. 

Needless to say, I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo (is that enough “o”s?) ready for summer and relaxation. To get us in the spirit, I thought I’d do a post on 8 summer sandals that I love. I would pair any of these with some shorts or a flowy skirt and head off to the beach with magazine in hand.

Pop Up Video History Lesson

Last week, the hubby and I started watching “The Tudors” on Netflix. I love history (like “thought-about-majoring-in-it-love”), but I am not the hugest fan of sixteenth century England. There is too much blood, gore and super confusing relationships/politics going on. It made me have a genius thought. What if there was “Pop Up Video” for confusing TV shows? Remember “Pop Up Video” where random facts about a band and their song came up during the showing of the music video? Well, this would be like that, but as you watched your TV show, facts that explained things like “King Henry VIII desired to have a son to be his heir” or “Henry’s wife Catherine was previously married to his older brother Arthur”. I believe this would make the show so much more enjoyable and save me from spending hours combing through facts on Wikipedia.

What I Love: Polka Dots

Posted on

Why I Love Them

-They are classic, timeless and oh so feminine.

-They are a statement print and come in different sizes (so you can go big or little, depending on your personality).

-They are incredibly versatile and can be easily mixed with other prints.

-They are fun, youthful and completely whimsical, but can be dressed up appropriate for the work environment.

How To Wear Them

-When paired with leather, you get a feminine rocker look.

-Solid colored skinny jeans on bottom are a must.

-On a pair of skinny jeans, choose a smaller dot size and more subdued color, so as not to look too Minnie Mouse-y.
