{Weekly Wrap Up}

 Reunited with my friends one back from California and the other back from her trip to London and South Africa!

 I enjoyed the summer time weather by eating outside multiple times this week.
 And when it's this hot, you need something to cool off with. {necklace from Zara, sunglasses from Free People}
My new Ray-Ban's and two new suits for my California trip next week! {left is O'Neill, right is Forever 21}
Relaxing before bedtime with two new Target candles and my Teen Vogue.
Do you ever just have those days where everything seems to be going wrong, but eventually falls into place? Where one second you're stressed and upset, and the next, you open your eyes and see the bigger picture? When you put out bad energy, that's what you get. I had one of those eye opening experiences yesterday, and once I let the bad energy go, everything fell into place. 
Sometime's it's little things like making the green light when you're running late, or when you stop into a store only to find out everything is 20% off. Yes, that's very silly of me to say, but it did contribute to making my day better. 
More things that are going to contribute making me happy and see the big picture when it just isn't going right? Wonderful friends, my loving boyfriend and family, my upcoming trip to visit my friend in San Diego, and yes, my 20% Ray-Bans I bought last night. So, go on and judge, but all these experiences and more make this girl realize how lucky she is. Have a wonderful weekend, and yay, it's finally summer (well, on Saturday!)

{Weekly Wrap Up}

Jesse and I went to our friend's wedding last weekend and we had a little too much fun if you can't tell. 
Most amazing sandwich from First Watch...the beefeater. 
Latest bathing suit! I love the suits from Victoria's Secret.

At the beach a few weeks ago. It was a nice little get away to officially welcome in summer.
  Celebrating last week at my company's 25th Anniversary party at Wit & Wisdom in the Four Seasons in Harbor East.
A slightly messy room, and the gorgeous Miranda Kerr on this month's Lucky magazine.

Back to a full week of work this past week. Last week I was off a few days for various reasons, so this week was extra hectic. Add in rain, meetings & a tonnnn of traffic, and this girl is seriously ready for the weekend. Okay--this week was also filled with a lot of wine & Orange is the New Black. I may or may not have watched five episodes in one night...but anyway, once the clock strikes 5:30 p.m., I will be out of my office and ready to roll. This week is filled with hanging with friends and an appetizer cook-off! Have a great weekend!

Summer Uniform

|Shirt: Soprano{via Nordstrom Rack}| Shorts: Target| Shoes: Target {love these}| Purse: Isaac Mizrahi {similar}| Sunglasses: Uptown Cheapskate {want these}| Nailpolish: Essie in "I'm Addicted"| Bracelet: South Moon Under, Alex & Ani| Watch: Fossil|

Every time I walk into Target I tell myself to just get what I came for and leave. Well, that never happens, and I end up leaving with new Essie nail polish, shoes and shorts. While these shoes are from last summer, these shorts I picked up recently. A good pair of jean shorts is great for the summer, but mixing it up with a printed, silky pair is even better. I'll be finding myself wearing these shorts (and I wish these & these) all summer long.
