Peaches & Pinks


Happy Friday! Today is my last day of work before I'm on vacaaaation for a week and I couldn't be more excited. C'mon 4:30.

Today I'm bringing you a little roundup of peaches & pinks! I'm loving all these pink & peachy dresses, cute tops, fun accessories, peach nail polish and adorable espadrilles! These colors just scream summer! Speaking of which, does anyone else feel like summer is going way too quickly? How is it the end of July? I feel like it's barely begun! Hoping for a fun filled August to make the most of what's left!

Late Summer Neutrals


So I know that summer is at its peak and bright colors and fun prints are out in full force, and I am 100% down with that! But lately while browsing online, simple, clean neutrals are catching my eye. I'll call these more "late summer" than fall for now, as it's too early to think about fall, but I'd love to add all of these to my wardrobe (and bonus that they can definitely carry you into fall!) 

I'm definitely in need of a new iPhone case and Kate Spade makes my favorites. (Granted, I don't have a iPhone 6 so most of the new designs aren't available for me!) I'm also swooning over these sweet "xo" earrings from Kate Spade. (Really, the brand can do no wrong!)

BB Dakota is a long time fave and I always love their knits, which can work for a cool summer evening, too! Cooper & Ella is a new to me brand but I lovelovelove this simple white blouse. It even has a gold zipper detail on the back that is just too pretty! 

These wedges I just spotted on Danielle's Instagram and I LOVE how they looked on her. They are Jeffrey Campbell and I love all the cut out detailing! 

And I'm sure you've heard by now that Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere has her own clothing line now?! I'd love to pick up a piece, and this striped dress is just a sample of how gorgeous the line is! 

I already mentioned in my last post how much I am dying over lace up flats these days, so just had to throw these in there again! 

And last but not least, a couple of cute tops from J.Crew! I am loving the ruffle layer on this one, and there's nothing like a bit of sparkle to dress up a gray tee

Lace Up Obsession

It's always a little disheartening when you're surfing through blogs and see something you absolutely love and must have immediately, only to click on the item and realize they are way, way out of your budget. Like, ya know, $600 or so out of your budget. And while I'm not a fan of designer knock offs, I was definitely excited to see the lace up shoe trend take off and offer more affordable options! 

The originals - or at least the first ones I saw and fell in love with, were by Aquazzura. They are so sleek and gorgeous but there was no way I could justify anything close to these. So I went on a hunt, and found a number of similar pairs - Topshop actually has a bunch of different styles at affordable price points, but I think my winner may be the Aldo ones (both due to the style and their accessibility and price point!) 

What do you think of this trend? Have you found any others out there that I haven't listed here?
