Happy Weekend!

Another week, another roundup – here are a few things that made it awesome….We’re off to Galena for a wedding weekend, hope your’s is fab!

I finally tried the genius of the metallic Sharpie’s for nail art. life = changed.

Since bun weather is back, let’s try this Braided Sock Bun. Mr. Kate cracks me up – I’m convinced no one handles haters better.

Pinterest announced our boards are searchable, OMG yay!!!

Makes my mouth water. (Also enjoying other bits of Tastemade.)

These pants. And these!

Why powerful women make the greatest friends.

Jaws Inspired

Did anyone watch Chime for Change on Sunday? (What an amazing event!) I was drawn to Jada’s shark tooth necklace.  Honestly, I haven’t given shark’s tooth jewelry a thought since leather ankle bracelets from a souvenir shop at any beach sometime around 14 years ago. But I’m digging the grown up necklace versions and covet all of the above. The earrings are pretty rad, too. And you know how I feel about dainty earrings with attitude.

P.S. One made with a real tooth, a fabulous bracelet, and a super cool cuff.

Monday Musing

On Saturday I wore this. On Sunday it was forty six. Go figure.

A few years ago in Chicago we had what I dubbed “the summer of no summer” where for nearly three months it was neither warm, nor sunny. Just blah. And it killed me. Growing up in Tennessee summer is always summer, no questions, and no matter where I live the rest of my life, I’ll always need it. At the rate it’s going my concerns are growing each and every day that we’re in for a repeat. Sundresses and street fests and the beach at the end of our street are calling my name, only Mother Nature isn’t cooperating…get it together woman!

Alas, we had our first rooftop party and hit up Do Division over the weekend (before it rained) and it felt great to jump into some summer apparel. These scalloped peach suede shorts are a fave so far. (Similar here.) The bun was a “hurry-let’s-go” attempt at looking presentable with wet hair, but paired with this, once dry, created some piece-y slight waves that ended up being acceptable. I also spent a few hours with Photoshop on Sunday, something I haven’t done in ages, and it felt good to create all my birthday/occasion cards for the month. What else is there to do when it’s so ugh outside?

Ok, I’ll stop complaining now, Monday’s hard enough on it’s own. Wishing you all a sunny week!
