Burgundy bags

Okay, we may have quite a bit of summer left to live (thank God), but it never stops me from looking forward when it comes to my bigger purchases. I have been swooning over burgundy bags for the past few falls, and I think this may just be the one where I bite the bullet.

Latest buys

My style is in full on summer mode. We’ve had some nice weather, but this weekend the temps are bumping up to the 90s, and I’m very ready to wear nothing but casual cutoffs and sandals!

Get patriotic

I absolutely love the Fourth of July. It’s the perfect opportunity to hang around outside, eat and drink to excess, and spend time with friends! This year I’ll be going to a rather large pool party, and I’m already brainstorming the perfect outfit for it.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and every year I’m torn when it comes to getting something for my mom. She’s low maintenance, and doesn’t want us to make a big fuss over her for the day. I like to think up something small and thoughtful to get her anyways, and spend the day with her!
