These jeans are at least 12 years old. The holes have gotten bigger but they're still perfect for those hot days where I feel like wearing jeans but want a breeze. Paired with a fancier top and sandals its a bit more "dressed" than "distressed"

I bought this dress after having it on my watch list for 6 months. It was only $7 but I was trying to behave and not buy it, in the end I decided if I couldn't stop thinking about it I should just get it. I found it because I have a camisole version that is one of my Summer staples (so I was looking for it for an outfit post.)

When I first bought the top version I didn't think I would wear it often because of the deep v on both sides. I'm not the biggest fan of showing off my chest but I thought it was pretty.  Now it's one of my favorite things to wear in the warmer months. And I can even wear it in Fall with jackets. Time to add the dress into the rotation!

 I wore it with another Summer staple for its first outing - my Lanvin studded suede sandals!

This is what I wore for the 4th of July. Christian and I had a pretty laid-back day. We started with a trip to the local farmers market, a walk in the park and then headed to my parents for lunch - steak fajitas. We hung out in their AC for a while and then headed back home where I proceeded to sit out the couch and watch the TNT Star Wars marathon the rest of the day.

I wore this a couple weekends ago to a blogger Happy Hour at Fork & Fire in Farmington, CT. They have recently changed their name from 4Eat&Drink but is still owned and run by the same team. Manager Jesse explain the appetizer options while Danny made us delicious cocktails. I tried the Spring Blossom which features gin and strawberry.  I particularly enjoyed the BLT Flatbread, wings and pita chips. What can I say, I’m a simple gal who loves her bread.

The event was super fun and we were the only ones in the restaurant so we were free to do crazy blogger things like rearrange tables to get the best shot of the food. So much easier than when you have other restaurant goers disturbed by photo taking; or just staring because they're confused.

I wore my fun firework print Marc Jacobs dress for the occasion and Lydia and I stopped by a local historical society afterward for photos.

P.S. You may also notice some weird circles on my back. I was going to photoshop them out but was too lazy. I went to my Aunt's for a massage before the event and had her do some cupping because my back was hurting more than usual that day. Cupping makes it feel so much better! IF you're in the Wethersfield area be sure to check her out for massage, cupping and energy work! (We're currently revamping her site because this one was made way back when I was in college in 2009.)

A simple outfit for a warm day. I wore this to go grocery shopping so I didn't want to wear shorts - hello freezer section.  I haven't been wearing this pair of jeans much for some reason so I decided it was time to take them out for a spin. I wore them with one of my favorite Summer sweaters - a bit of an oxymoron but this is a tank sweater and it's perfect for hot days. I'm really liking the blue, black and brown combo; who says you can't wear them together?!

I've shared the story a few times before, but my late Grandmother (Dad's mom) made this sweater and 3 others for my Mom and her other daughters a long time ago - decades probably. My Mom actually asked for a second one in another color because she loved it so much. She passed it on to me in 2012 and it's been a Summer staple since then.

Wearing my second new purchase of June, these linen pants I bought the same day as my Splendid shorts. I liked these because they aren't as tight as most of my other pants so I can wear them on warmer days. I still have to get used to the pleats/bulkier waist area but overall I like them! Next time I'll wear them with a tighter fitting top, this Ralph Lauren sweater is a little too oversized for them I think. I actually found the sweater on eBay, a first for me since whenever I wear it on the blog I can't find it to share! And one is actually my size so I'm tempted to get it....but I'll stick with my 2 sizes too big one.
