Looking cute while melting

Hi Lovely!

Last weekend was a hot one! The temperature got all the way up to 93 degrees and I did my best to dress accordingly. So, I busted out my cute ice cream cami dress. What I love about this dress is that it is stretchy, light-weight, and semi-cool (as cool as you can be in 93 degree weather). I have a hard time in warm weather. The heat makes me sweat a lot which makes me uncomfortable, emotionally and physically, so feeling cute when the temperature rises is a regular challenge. I mean, being comfortable in my own skin when I can cover it is hard enough. Combine exposing most of your body to the equation and you have a situation filled with self doubt and uneasiness. So, finding a dress that keeps me cool and makes me feel good about myself is a pretty special thing.

My Transition To Summer

Hi Lovely!

One thing I hate about the changing seasons is figuring out how to transition my winter wardrobe into summer. I literally have to pack away a huge portion of my clothing once it warms up because it’s too hot to wear during the summer. We must accept it, which I do, BUT when it cools down for a minute I like to bust out my clothes that won’t see the light of day for months if only for a moment. This little number is one of those pieces. Too thick for summer but add a pair of tights and BAM it’s great for winter.

Feelin’ cute in my first JapanLA purchase!

Hi Lovely!

I’ve been eyeing products from JapanLA for a very long time but could never pull the trigger. Their products are ridiculously cute but a bit pricey. I never found anything that I felt comfortable spending money on. That is, until I saw this cute My Melody tank top! It was in their sale section so it was just the right price and too cute to pass up.

Today I am sharing how I styled my super cute shirt I bought while Emma was visiting!! (You can read all about her visit here and here.) We ended up finding a shirt that we both loved in a Portland boutique so we decided to both buy it! I mean, why the heck not?! We’ve now decided that these matching tops are our best blog friend tops. How fun is that?!

I love this shirt because it is simple with little details, like the ones I just described, that makes it really pop. Perfect for a casual weekend or to rock at work. Plus, it was on sale!! Emma and I just couldn’t pass it up.
