At the Beach in Italy

I love this Marel George painting of an Italian beach scene on this t-shirt.  Just like with last week’s Andiamo tee,  I am living vicariously through my clothes.  While I thoroughly enjoyed a recent getaway to the American Riviera (Santa Barbara), but I still dream about the long days in Europe.

I styled the tee with my go-to seersucker blazer, jeans, sunglasses, Legend of Lido clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels.

Mani Monday – Flamingo Edition

After seeing this t-shirt I had flamingos on my mind.  Coral is one of my favorite nail colors for summer.  I was able to find the perfect coral, “On the List” in my new favorite Essie Gel Couture.  My last mani lasted over a week.  It is indestructible.

This past weekend we had a quick getaway to Santa Barbara which included swimming and lounging at the Coral Casino.  It was the perfect mid-summer getaway and my coral, flamingo manicure fit right in.

The color is “On the List” by Essie Gel Couture. The nail art and manicure are by Olive & June.

Let’s Go, Weekend!

Ready for the weekend, again?  I am!  I have serious summer wanderlust.  This summer will include a few domestic trips.  I will have to rely on my wardrobe and imagination for international pursuits.

I styled this “Andiamo” tee with a white denim skirt, sunglasses, New Balance sneakers and my bag of the summer (which is in stock!).

Hiking up to the Getty

It’s back to reality from the long weekend which included museum hopping, riding a fire truck in a 4th of July parade, fireworks, a kid’s race and lots of fun.

For this visit to the Getty Museum I put together this casual outfit and everything in it is on sale!  I just picked up this placed stripe tee for a steal and styled it with my favorite vintage crop jeans (they are such a good deal right now that I got a second pair), my pink signet bag and New Balance sneakers.  I was in a very competitive Fitbit competition, so we walked up to the museum instead of taking the tram.  I love my Fitbit Flex 2 in navy.  Competing definitely makes me look for more walking opportunities.

Preppy Plaid

I love to dress up my (daily) denim with a blazer.  This preppy plaid version is perfect with a white tee, pink clutch and my favorite denim (that is on sale).  The look still feels casual and breezy with just the right polish.

Mani Monday – Sunflower Edition

 

Tall stems and long days – it’s Summer!  Sunflowers scream summer to me with their bright yellow and stems that seem to grow forever.  I am enjoying the longer days even if it does seem to make it impossible for my seven year to go to sleep.  He like, me wants to chase the light.  We take a later walk and scooter ride with the dog stopping along the way to smell the flowers.

Love and Stripes

Love, stripes and a birthday weekend lunch with my mom at Flower Child.   I was happy to have my favorite kale salad with salmon before all the celebrating and cake eating commenced.  It was perfect June weather and just right for a cotton sweater and skirt.  I love this striped sweater with patches.
