Sunday of Summer

August is like the {Sunday of summer} – trying to squeeze everything in before the chill of fall sets in.  I’m taking advantage of each sunshine-filled day that’s left!  I’ve gone on some great {adventures} this summer and look forward to packing in a few more!  Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

Summer 2014

1. Crossing {homemade martini} off my 25-year bucket list with these mango cosmos

2. Luke Bryan at {CUSA}

3. Birthday cookie delivery from my BFF in Seattle

4. Reunion with old co-workers in La Crosse, WI for Rockin’ the Docks fundraiser

5. Visiting my favorite {hole-in-the-wall bar} for the best bloody mary

6. Celebrating my 26th birthday with a backyard patio happy hour


Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! xo

A major {color trend} for summer 2014 – pastels.  I am really excited about mixing and matching prints and colors in these subtle, flirty shades.  They pair well with {metallics} and big pair of sunnies!  Here are some my favorite ways to prep in pastel!

1. Nails 

Essie Pastel    love for {essie} and little lines

2. Periwinkle

3. Print

4. Shoes
