Happy Friday, everyone! I am so excited that you decided to take a few minutes to stop by and say hello. Today is my Friday with Friends blog post, and I think that you are going to be glad that you dropped by. Andrea is a midwest girl and the only lady in her house since a husband and three boys surround her. I can’t imagine how she finds time to blog, at my home, I would have been busy picking up dirty socks and doing laundry if there were that many boys running around. Lol! But, not only does she find time to blog, she loves to cook and has dreams of writing a cookbook.
When asked what she loves, there was a looooong response: “sunsets, Summer “date days” with my husband, Starbucks, laying in the sun, Pool floating, family traditions, country music, Chick-fil-A Market Salads, M22, Barry Manilow (don’t judge), hoop earrings, berries, scrapbooking, shopping til I drop, Notre Dame Football, FALL, being cozy, wind turbines, Chicago (the city), singing to the radio, laughing with our boys til my side hurts, fonts, our doggie named Daisy, snowshoeing, working out including long walks with my sweet mom, Dana Carvey, black beans, Fannie Mae buttercreams, Lake Michigan, decorating our newly built home, and binge-watching popular T.V. shows with my husband.” You should feel like you know her pretty well after reading all that. Hop on over and check out Andrea’s blog; Living on Cloud Nine.
I am styling a simple summer look today for you. You can’t get much simpler than a cute tee and an adorable pair of shorts. The dark navy (sorry if it looks black) flutter sleeve tee is very soft and comfortable. I love the deep round neckline because it makes my neck look longer. The tee is 100% cotton, so it is machine washable, which is a big plus in my book. This top comes in a couple of other colors, and if you were wondering, I am wearing a large. However, after trying on several tops from this store, I will be ordering mediums in the future. Here is the link to the top, which is on sale by the way.
I am wearing the Shannon necklace and the matching Rosaleen earrings. I thought the pattern in the shorts matched the teardrop shape of the pendant. I like how the earrings and the necklace both have silver and gold. Having both silver and gold in the items takes away any stress that you might have about which color to wear. The Maueve bracelet set is now discontinued, so they are no longer available for purchase.
The patterned tile shorts are toooooo cute. I bought 5 or 6 pair of shorts the other day when I caught them on sale at Belk. These are another of the Caroline Classic shorts by Crown & Ivy, in a 5″ inseam. (here is another pair that I wore the other day) These are machine washable, and they run true to size; I am wearing my usual size 10. These are still on sale, so click here to get the link.
If you read yesterday’s post (here), then you know that I went on a 1000.00 shopping spree at Nordstrom, and I walked out with three bags. Wonder what is in the three bags? Here you go, this is what I bought.
Be sure to go and visit with Andrea today (here) and tell her that I said hello!
