Peaches in Cream

Pretty In Pastels

 

Summer seems to be being a bit delayed. I was starting to get concerned that I was going to have a Vitamin D deficiency until the sun finally decided to come out for the first time in weeks… literally 16 straight days of rain here last week in the DC metro area… and it’s back again! I should be posting about all the summer items I want to buy- tropical prints and bright colors- but instead I’m posting spring hues. I am realllly loving all the pastel and creamy colored items out there right now, and so many have fun prints, details and cuts! (Hello, scallops!) This dress, I mean come on. Tell me it wouldn’t be perfect for a bridal shower or a fun date day! And being a big fan of Deborah Lippmann, I can’t wait to try out her new gel polishes! This Peaches in Cream color can take you well into the sunnier summer days!

Save vs. Splurge

I have been searching for a cute, comfortable pair of flats that I can easily wear with a variety of outfits. Like many of you, I love Gal Meets Glam’s blog and when she posted the scalloped Nude Ballet Flats I was in love. That is what I was looking for- girly, yet very practical. One problem though… for someone who wears flats only very occasionally, I couldn’t justify the price tag that came with the Scalloped Chloe Flats. So my search for my save vs. splurge scalloped flats began, and it didn’t take long. I found a super similar pair for a fraction of the price & switching out my heels for flats today felt like heaven! I love the nude color & the scalloped edge isn’t overly childish or blister-making! Maybe one day I will be willing to justify that price tag for the splurge, but for now… these will do the trick!

Luna di miele

Beautiful Positano, Amalfi Coast, Italy

{via}

Luna di miele… “honeymoon” in Italian, which we better start practicing since that’s where we are headed! We are flying into Rome and already have so much that we want to do and see there, but after 4-5 days we’re planning on training or flying to another part of the country, leaning toward Sicily. Have you all been to Sicily before?! I’m looking for some insight- especially if you’ve traveled to Italy in the Fall!

I’ve already started thinking about ‘what to pack’ purchases and so far on my list are easy breezy pieces that I won’t get tired of! Here’s a few I’ve saved so far…

Green Juice

Tropikale Smoothie

Memorial Day. A weekend of remembrance, joy, and lots of beer… sometimes by the pool… in a bikini… holy smokes, summer is right around the corner! So instead of ordering a bagel smothered with cream cheese, or a cheesy sausage egg biscuit I opted for South Block and grabbed myself a green smoothie to start my day off on the right foot!

This smoothie is the Tropi-kale & one so easy and delicious I am going to start making it myself to kick start more mornings than just the ones I’m running ahead of schedule, because like I mentioned… bikinis are coming!!

Ingredients:

Coconut Water | Agave | Kale | Strawberries | Mangos | Bananas

Blend, Pour, Enjoy!
