Wrap Shirt + Ripped Pearl Jeans

So here’s the thing, I have a horrible habit of buying clothes and leaving them in my closet for months. This front-tie wrap shirt for instance, was purchased early this year and has since collected dust. It was one of my first ever purchases from Go Jane along with some patched denim. I figured it was time to rock this baby before jackets are mandatory. An afternoon lunch date with my Hubby and daughter at our favorite Chines restaurant was the perfect occasion.

I even got another wear out of my wedding sandals. Ladies I’m telling you, these babies are the gift that keeps on giving! To keep things cute but comfy I added a paired of jeweled ripped jeans that I’ve had for years. I found these at Bare Feet Shoes here in Philly and the pearls won me over immediately. Not to mention the small rhinestones add to the glam factor.

These jeans make the quintessential white blouse/blue jean combo even more chic; and my daughter totally agreed so it’s safe to say I’m a cool mom, LOL. Well, I’m off to celebrate my Mother in Love’s 4th anniversary of beating breast cancer tomorrow, so have a fabulous weekend darlings, XO!

Ivory Wrap Dress

For those of us living in the North Eastern part of the U.S. we know that nothing indicates the true end of summer like that very last heatwave we receive in September. Last week said heatwave hit and hubby (omgosh I can’t believe I say that now lol) surprised me with a weekend getaway to Avalon, New Jersey. A lovely four bedroom home only a few feet away from the beach meant three full days of sun, sand, and all the waffle cones we could handle. This was my first time in Avalon but it definitely won’t be my last! The people are super sweet and the town itself is absolutely charming.

Needless to say, with all that sunshine and temperatures in the mid eighties, ya girl just had to squeeze in a mini shoot! I decided to pack at least one white look because the beach demands it and well, it’s after Labor Day. Believe it or not, this ivory dress has been in my closet since March just waiting to be worn. Only one button and one belt closure means this dress was the perfect no-fuss item to go from day to night. The only necessity was choosing the right accessories. I purchased these $20 clear sandals for my wedding back in May and I’ve lived in them all summer! I decided to add touches of gold with my bag, jewels, and metallic lip.

This trip was the perfect end to an amazing summer. How about you? Share your summer highlights with me in the comments below!
