 ::boyfriend jeans Nordstrom (here, similar and great priced here, white version here), Top c/o Hazel and Chic Boutique (similar here), Sunnies Borrowed from my husband (here), Shoes (here, on sale), Bag c/o Given Goods, Jewelry J.Crew (necklace on sale), David Yurman::

This is my husband's favorite outfit. Not exactly these items, but similar ones. Easy, slightly "alternative" if you will. I must admit, it was pretty comfy and putting on heels later that evening for dinner seemed silly since I was already feeling at ease. But hey, what girl doesn't feel more fabulous in heels, amiright?

This lace baseball tee from Hazel and Chic Boutique is also a win. The heather gray sleeves are so soft- I've worn this everywhere from running errands to sleeping. Plus, it's cute which is also a bonus. If you haven't checked their site out, I recommend paying them a visit, adorable stuff for great prices!

What's your favorite outfit, or your significant others favorite look for you?

Closet Sittin'

::Shorts and Blazer (J.Crew, old. Similar sets here, here, here great combo for fall here), Bag Kate Spade (here, loving this color for fall), Lace tee Zara (similar here and Anthropologie version here major sale), Shoes old, similar here and on sale), Jewelry David Yurman, JCrew, Personalized Necklaces, Sunnies Kate Spade (

I bought these pieces at the end of summer last season and while I’ve worn each separately, I’ve never paired them together. I had the intention of doing so when I bought them, but I guess I just never got around to it. So, they have been sitting pretty in my closet waiting for the right moment to break them out- and poof low and behold here they are today for you!

Im keeping this short today since my post is late. Apologies! Hope you all have a glorious Tuesday! Ill be back tomorrow with a casual laid back look!

Did anyone else wake up today amazed that this is the last week of August? I can’t believe this weekend is Labor Day and that a new month is already upon us. During the day I sometimes feel like time is slowly ticking (possibly because I’m at work), but week after week, I comment on how fast the days of summer seem to slip through our fingertips. While I discussed here last week that summer is still upon us, Labor Day does bring a certain closure to another season. While I am certain North Carolina will see MANY MANY more 90 degree + days, school is officially in session and has been and eventually the days will start to get shorter…. <insert sad face>. One good thing about that is the need to get together with friends and celebrate another passing holiday! This past weekend we got together with friends and chatted, ate, drank refreshing cocktails and beverages and just relaxed.

I wore this Shop RiffRaff dress to hang out with friends and absolutely love the embellished detailing and cut outs, how fun right? Since we were just getting together for dinner and a casual night, I tried to dress it down a bit with strappy sandals and cognac accessories, but I know with some black heels and more sparkly jewels this will be such a great LBD for a special occasion too!  
Speaking of the upcoming holiday weekend, Aaron is off, but works Monday so an earlier celebration is in store. Hopefully we will have some people over for a grill out if all goes according to plan. I always keep an array of beverages on hand for reason such as this and Smirnoff is a great option because it’s light, fresh and let’s be honest, easy! Plus, the flavors they have out (this Peach Bellini was delish) are such to appease anyone’s tastes. We don’t plan on having anything fancy, but maybe some burgers, music, drinks and overall just good company. Isn’t that the perfect mix for any type of gathering?

What do you have planned for Labor Day? Anything exciting? While I really want to relax, I am also going to take advantage of Aaron’s time off and see if we can tackle some to-do items around the house! I am itching to “reveal” more of our home, but need to complete a few small areas first!

Make sure to check out Smirnoff’s amazing flavors and pick some up for your Labor Day plans! Yum!

Smirnoff Ice celebrates the absurdly awesome.
