dress: J.Crew (March 2011)
belt: Anthro Cake Decoration (August 2010)
sandals: F21 (May 2010)

Don't you just love easy throw on summer dress? I love this one. So comfy. Maybe too comfy because my nephew asked if I was still wearing my pjs.

What do these pictures have in common?

If you guessed "a hat," you're correct!!

We really like the look of the fedora, but we don't know how to pull it off. I know how to wear it to the beach, a 4th of July parade, and that's about it.

Here's where y'all help out. We need styling inspiration. If you could email me pictures of how/where you wear your fedora, Rebekah and I would greatly appreciate it. After I gather all the pictures, I'll post them because I'm positive there are others like myself out there. So, email me ( your fedora outfit by next Wednesday, June 22nd. Oh, and don't feel limited to 1 picture.

I can hardly wait to see your cute stylings!

Today is Rebekah's 19th birthday! She went to work like every other person does on their special day; being a capitalist is great. Here's what she wore--
cardigan: H&M (April 2010)
dress: TJ Maxx (April 2011)
black lace slip: she made it
shoes: Rampage via Marshall's (2007)
earrings: F21
Here's my lovely outfit--
top: Anthro Emcee (June 2011--I got it last week on sale + 25% off)
belt: F21 (Rebekah's closet)
shorts: Nordstrom BP (June 2008)--I will cry the day these shorts are retired.
shoes: Unlisted (May 2009)

Does anyone else have as much fun as I do with CatPaint? Every picture cracks me up.

Let me introduce you to my little sister, Rebekah...
She thinks I describe her as a 12 year old; she's not. There are 6 kids in my family: 5 girls, 1 boy. Rebekah and I are pulling up the rear being numbers 6 and 5, respectively.

We're wearing our church outfits. Do we look alike? Rebekah insisted that I do something with my hair.
necklace: Anthro Majorelle (September 2010)
tee: LOFT (May 2009)
skirt: Anthro Calm Seas (June 2011--I just got it last week. It got a 2nd cut to $30; then with the 25% off, it was $22.50. Rebekah got it as well; we did a charge-send.)
shoes: Unlisted (May 2009)

This little girl is going to be 19 tomorrow! Ahh, where did time go?!

posing slump?

Grabbed dessert with a friend
tee: J.Crew outlet (February 2011)
cardigan: Rebekah's (my little sister's closet)
jeans: GAP outlet (May 2010)
shoes: Unlisted (May 2009)

I thought this was funny and informative. I can use any posing ideas I can get. Sydney at The Daybook is too cute. Tilt your head to the left.

Since I use self-timer, my poses aren't super creative because I have approximately 8 seconds to get in place. I'm home for a few weeks, and my little sister kindly and willingly volunteered to take my outfit shots. (She really did!) She loves this stuff...seriously.

I wore this outfit for a couple days. I'm loving that it's still cool enough to wear these jeans. Although, I know come July, they will probably be packed away until school starts. Too hot otherwise. I feel like my window of time to wear these is so limited. Do you have any spring/summer pieces like this?
tee: J.Crew outlet (May 2010)
jeans: GAP outlet (May 2010)--I searched high and low for white skinnies. Every store that had white skinnies, I went to. I tried on at least 15 pairs.
shoes: TOMS (June 2010)

swim lessons

I took my nephews to swim lessons as my sister took her little girl to the doctor. Here's my poolside attire:
bathing suit underneath
tank: J.Crew outlet (May 2011)
skirt: Aeropostale (April 2006)
sandals: F21 (June 2010)

I bet a couple of you are thinking, "May 2011? I thought she joined the shopping ban." I did. I made an exception for beach items. I purchased 2 tanks ($6 each and the tanks will be used for the gym as well), 1 tee ($10), and 1 romper/coverup ($10). Those were my only purchases. $32 total. Not bad. How did y'all fare?

more beach vacation

My roommates (Megan and Benita) and I went to the Outer Banks to meet up with several of my friends from when I lived in Washington, DC. We had such a great time! It was really nice because halfway through the week we ended up having the HUGE house to just the 3 of us. A much needed respite for all of us!
cream cardigan
romper: F21 (May 2011)
Sperry time! Plaid--me; navy--Benita; gold metallic--Megan
I don't know where her dress is from. F21? Target? TJ Maxx?

tee: J.Crew outlet (May 2011)
skirt: Benita's
blue dress: Target (May 2011)
This picture was taken to show that there was an elevator in our house. It turned out to work as an outfit shot as well.
tee: H&M (April 2010)
