Bells and Bees

My Grandmother B (who I wrote about here) would have gone crazy for these bee shoes (and they are so affordable that even someone who lived through the depression would not balk).  I styled them with this bell sleeve top (also affordable) and these jeans with a fun slit detail.  All of this is from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  You can see a preview of the eight outfits I styled here.

The photos are by my seven year old.  He was also excited about the sale and scored these shoes, this robe and this dopp kit.  The Tumi dopp kit seemed extravagant for a seven year old, but he is obsessed with it and Tumi lasts forever (they have a number of luggage pieces in the sale in a great grey).  He takes such good care of his things that I expect this will go to college with him.

Mani Monday -Black Stripes Edition

2017 is off to a stripe-y start. It is no secret that I love stripes.  Last week was a week of stripes.  For this week’s mani, I am wearing black for the first time with negative space stripes.

The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.  The color is “Black Pool” by CND Vinylux.

Happy Monday!

PS – How cute are the Gucci Bee Loafers?



Mani Friday – Bee Edition

My maternal Grandmother B, who I wrote about in this post, would have turned 105 on Sunday.  She lived one day shy of 100 years and is still a daily inspiration.  Her name was B, she loved bees and she definitely buzzed around with infectious and authentic energy.

The color is “Sun Bleached” by CND Vinylux.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Happy Friday!



Buzzing Gingham

About a month ago I wrote about my Grandmother B in this post.  June is her birthday month (and mine), so I have been thinking about her a lot.  I decided to style the J. Crew Save the Bees t-shirt again with some Gingham.  It has been very cool and foggy, so the layers made sense and wearing bees makes me feel connected to her.
