hello september.

I can't believe that Monday is Labor Day! Where did the summer go...actually, where has this entire year gone!?! I guess it's true what they say, the older you get, the faster time flies!

With that, I'll leave you with a few of my favorite finds from the week:
  • If you're planning a trip to San Francisco (or if you live nearby and want to try out some different spots), check out this 12 Hours Travel Guide and see the best of the city by the bay in just one day!
  • I know I'm not the only one that goes into Target for toothpaste and leaves with a cart full of items I didn't know I "needed"...admit it, your Target obsession is out of control too!
  • One of my (and just about every female I know) favorite movies, The Notebook is now ten years old...check it out from a guy's perspective!
  • If you enjoy great design as much as I do, you'll appreciate these great packaging ideas!
  • Usually if I'm going to bake, I'll make cupcakes...but this week I decided to try my hand at a "real" cake...not as easy as I thought it would be! Make it easy on yourself and check out these tips on how to build a cake like a pro!
  • I'm always on the look out for new (and more importantly, easy) ways to do my hair for work...I'm loving this chic braided bun!
Whatever your plans are this long weekend, have fun, stay safe, and get out there and enjoy the last weekend of the summer! See you all in September!

black and white [on repeat]

blazer: H&M (old, similar, similar) // tank top: Forever 21 (old, similarsimilar) // jeans: Target
necklace: Cost Plus World Market // watch: Michael Kors // wedges: J. Crew Factory

Happy Friday Eve Thursday!

I know what you're probably thinking..."Wow, this girl wears those white jeans a lot!' I can't help it... they're my favorite pair of jeans and summer is coming to an end! #sorryimnotsorry

I've been wearing these to work quite a bit as well. In fact, today's outfit is almost identical to this one I wore a few weeks back!

If you don't own a pair of white jeans, I highly recommend adding a pair to your closet (preferably ankle length). Check out these, these, and these (all on sale!) You can thank me later! :)

end-of-summer blues.

blouse: Forever 21 // skirt: J. Crew Factory (similar, similarLOVE this one!) // necklace: Urban Peach Boutique
watch: Michael Kors // heels: Jessica Simpson

This is kinda/sorta the last week of summer...or the last week you can get away with light flowy fabrics in summer colors anyways. Needless to say, I'm taking full advantage and wearing all my favorites one last time!

On a different note...I am the only one still wearing the bubble necklaces? The past couple of years they were everywhere and now I'm thinking I may have missed the memo that they're old news?  Trends aside, I'm still loving these necklaces, especially this one in aqua. Such a fun way to add a pop of color to an outfit!

What about you ladies, what summer favorites are you wearing before the official start of fall, and are you still rocking the bubble necklace?

casual friday.

tank top: Forever 21 (old, similar) // shorts: Banana Republic via Crossroads Trading Co (similar, almost identical)
necklace: Guess via Crossroads Trading Co (similar, love this one) // watch: Michael Kors // wedges: Toms via eBay

Working at home on Fridays means that I can wear shorts! I have to enjoy the last few weeks of the summer while I can!

Have a great weekend!

pink lace & white jeans.

blouse: Forever 21 (old, similar, similar, love this one!) // jeans: Target // earrings: Nordstrom
necklace: H&M (old) // watch: Timex (old, similar) // wedges: J. Crew Factory

The weather has cooled down significantly over the past week, reminding me that fall is on it's way (whether I like it or not!). In turn, I'm trying to get as much use as I can out of my favorite summer pieces, including these white jeans. These are definitely one of my most-worn pieces in the summer months and I'll be bummed to put them away in a few of weeks.

What favorite item(s) will you miss now that fall is on it's way?
