C'est La Vie

Summer feels like it has been in super-sonic-speed fast forward! I seriously can't believe that it's almost the end of July! Phew!

I'm in the process of getting my Real Estate license, so that I can move out of the "assistant/transaction coordinator" world, and am completely overwhelmed at the thought of how much more I have left to do! I've really got to buckle down these next few months, and push through to get this done, so I apologize in advance if my blog posts are a little more sparse until then. I hate the thought of that, but between school and working full time, something's gotta give..

Current Uniform

Classic pieces are doing it BIG for me this summer and this outfit proves no different. Whether it's stripes it's stripes or solids, black and white seems to be my current uniform.

 I've recently taken to this Panama Hat (last seen here), and although I've turned to Fedora's, for years, to combat Summertime hair woes, I find myself reaching for this hat to complete a look - even on a good hair day.

What's your current uniform?

Floral Kimono

So I might be a little late to the party, but I finally jumped on the floral kimono train. Better late than never, right?

It took me forever to jump on board, but when I stumbled upon this kimono from Gypsy Threads...I fell in love. 

Colorado is a funny place. It's generally never "hot" here, (at least in my opinion) so it's safe to say that you can generally catch me in some sort of cover-up in tow. Chambray seems to be the usual suspect, as of late, but this kimono was a pleasant change from the norm. 

Gypsy Threads is full of all things curious and lovely, and their array of scarves, sandals, palazzo pants and headbands (to name a few) definitely keep me coming back for more. They have a little bit of something for everyone and are definitely worth a gander...or two.

Sears Style - The Hot List

If you follow me on instagram you are fully aware (due to photo overload) that I celebrated my 1 year wedding anniversary with my Mr. in Denver over the weekend. Downtown Denver is only about an hour's drive from where we live in Colorado Springs, so although quick trips for dinner/shopping are common, it still felt new to get away for the weekend and explore the big city.

A big weekend calls for a big wardrobe, which is why I was so thrilled at the chance to stock up on some new Summertime goodies from Sears.

We stayed at the Westin in Denver which has an amazing rooftop pool - something this born and raised Cali girl has been missing these past few years in Colorado. A quick trip to Sears prepped me for a day at the pool, where I picked up these bold striped and dotted beach towels and bag.  In keeping with the "primary colors" theme, I thought the dotted red sunnies made a fun final touch for poolside lounging.

The weekend continued with meandering around the city, shopping and lots of yummy food #obvi
It was a seriously HOT weekend, so an easy breezy top and cut-off shorts proved to be the best warm weather options, while cute combat ankle boots kept my feet protected while trekking around the big city.

Of course, no anniversary weekend would be complete without a date night! For date night I wanted to turn to a tight fitting, sexy and sleek look, and this Kardashian Kollection dress had covered. I'm so obsessed with these shoes and the bag is such great quality, I know they'll both become frequent daily wear. I was also really impressed with Sears' Jewelry selection. All of their pieces were on trend, and on budget. #winning

Overall, my experience shopping at Sears was top notch. They had everything I needed, and more, to stay stylish and on budget during my weekend anniversary getaway. (Pssst...I'm even planning a trip back today to pick up a few items that have been on my mind ever since my last trip!) 

I now know that Sears has all I need to achieve my perfect Summer style.
