GAP shrunken boyfriend gingham shirts

These are the cutest things ever.  That is all.
Ok, maybe not all.  They are on sale at GAP right now so there aren't much left by I've seen them all over (Supersore/Joe Fresh...) and I think they are the cutest little summer shirt.  Throw 'em on over a pair of shorts or a maxi dress and you are set!

Happy Monday!

Hey everyone! Just came back from a weekend at the lake so I obviously hate being home and have no desire to enter into any "real-world" situations.  But, alas, I must.
My camera sucks (after I dropped it at Jack's birthday, remember?) and so I tried to take some pictures of the shoes I have been wearing and loving this summer and, wait for it, my WEDDING SHOES!!
But some of them didn't turn out.  Some of them did, though, so here they are:

 The above two pictures are of my wedding shoes.  Not sure if ya'll remember the detailing at the side of the dress but it's distinctly "silvery" I would say.
So I think these little flats will be perfect on the little jetty that we will be out on.
 Randomly, here is a new Steve Madden bag I just got.  Love it!! Both wedding sandals and bag from Winners.
 These little gold t-bar sandals with black leather KILL IT with everything.  Perfect!
Rose gold sandals from Forever 21.  I wear them all the time.  They are a great shimmery pop at the bottom of skinny jeans or maxi skirts.

And just super fun but not very functional: floral platforms, also from Forever 21.

And that's all for right now folks. 
Except for, I am wearing and loving this shirt that I got and mentioned in one of my last posts:

Cute hey? Especially the photo bomb c/o Ava :)

I love the super styled everyday clothes on Stylemint.  I had some credits so I cashed them in!
This is what I got:

I needed some sleeveless shirts (that weren't Old Navy too-loose tank tops) for summer.  They are easy to throw on but because of their structure, material, buttons, collar, etc. they make you look more put together.  I need structure.  I feel like a regular t-shirt or cotton tank does me no justice.
Plus I feel like they will go well with these funky cropped pants I just got from Reitmans.  Very Betty Draper, non? 
Oh, and I got the little infinity scarf as I've always wanted one and it's just so cute.  A great way to wear stripes (which are major right now, and forever timeless) into your wardrobe if you are worried they might make you look wide in a shirt or pant.
Another great way to get stripes in is in your footwear, like these two striped babies from Shoemint (Stylemint's sister site)

Cute, right?
Oh, and I got these shirts from Stylemint a while ago and while they may not look like "WoWzErS!"in the pictures, they are super comfy, well-made, and I get a TON of wear out of them:

Yay!!! Shopping!!!

Joe Fresh

Speaking of Joe Fresh, I have a Superstore so close I could spit on it so obviously I have a few things of theirs in my wardrobe.  In early Spring I got this faux-leather moto jacket and love it:

I'm thinking about getting these because they are kind of perfect to wear with everything:

And I already got their big, white, floppy, wide brimmed hat :)

New Dress!!

Got this new Calvin Klein dress from Winners the other day.  I didn't have a reason to buy it but they say not to wait for an occasion to start looking.
And I'm glad I got it as now we are hot into the wedding circuit and it will get it's use.
Ava (my 5 year old) actually picked it and got me to try it on.  Not sure I would have thought it would look good--but it totally does!
I think I'll pair it with my nude Joe Fresh cork platforms.  And some kind of flats for dancing later--of course!

Update: wore it and looked amazing (I think):
 And the hair I wore it with:

General Looks I'm Loving...

 Jeans worn casually but with a pointy toe?  I really like.  Here is a sleeveless and long-sleeve (rolled-up) version.  
Gwynnie's shoes are making me hot! I just got a kinda similar pair last night. That will be my next post.  Promise
A cutoff is killing me right now.  (Need to get these gams tanned and shapely). I also love a sport short worn dressy like above and below

 And Karla just kills it everytime.  Those shoes?
