Floral & Military

Anyone completely obsessed with the military and floral trend? Good. Me too. I just love mixing casual skinny cargoes with a girly top or balancing out a ladylike floral with some tougher pieces. So I threw together this inspiration board and this little Polyvore set to celebrate 3 of my favorite ways to wear this trend (I actually wore the 1st outfit to work yesterday.) What is your favorite trend right now? Enjoy lovelies!

My Dad

Since I was out of town over the weekend, this is a bit late...

Happy belated Fathers Day to the best Dad in the whole world! I love that we are so alike and that I get so much of what I love from you (like art and music.) I am so proud of all you accomplish- from your tri-athalons to remodels to the fabulous restaurants- you are amazing. Thank you for singing "Back to the House at Pooh Corner" and James Taylor songs to me when I was little, thank you for being patient while I was the world's worst driver, thank you for teaching me to be tough and a hard worker. Thank you for your kindness, support, jokes, hugs and unending love. I could go on and on. You are my hero and my rock. Love you Daddy.

P.S. And Happy Father's Day to my awesome Father-in-law! I will always remember the sweet speech at our wedding about wanting daughters- I am so blessed to be your DIL! XO

Off to Key West

Happy Tuesday pretties! The hubs and I are off to Key West in the morning to celebrate Hubs' birthday, the wedding of some of our dearest friends, and for some much needed R&R. I'll be back to blogging on Monday.
Have a great week!

Weekend Wrapup

What do a ridiculous amount of pink pom poms, wearing a bra on the outside of your clothes, a home brew kit, man pedicures and margaritas have to do with each other? Thats pretty much our weekend in a nutshell.

 My Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure outfit. Cute huh?

The pink pom poms that decorated our Komen booth.

Yep, that's my hubs with my 2 bosses Jim & Fred at the Komen Race. 
Aren't our shirts hysterical?! Love my job.

The hubs enjoying his very manly pedicure.

I got a pedi and a Shellac mani- those things last forever!

A nice way to wrap up a fun weekend!

Bright Ideas

 

Hello there pretties. Meet the two newest additions to my closet.  I headed to Nordi's looking for one dress for the wedding we will be attending in Key West next week and came home with two (this one and this one). I really couldn't decide between the two. I absolutley adore the bright fun prints! Don't you think the hubs should let me keep them both? Yeah, I think so too.

P.S. Happy Happy Happy Birthday (Dirty 30!) to my bestie Laine! We have been friends since 4th grade and she is such an important, wonderful part of my life. I hope your day is filled with awesome surprises and lots of treats. Love you little friend!
