Planning on painting my nails these new colors tonight. Turquoise on the fingernails, peachy-orange on my toes.
Little Lilly Shifts // Iona Top // Buttercup Shorts
My Lilly package came in today, from the Splash into Summer Event. The Iona top is even better in person, than I had imagined. The pink on it is so much brighter than how it looks online. I haven’t tried out the Beach Speakers yet, but plan to later this evening on our deck while we’re cooking out.
This Tory Burch Lidia Top is another one I scored during the Memorial Day Sales last weekend. Such a pretty neutral top, and it’s still on sale.
I posted this pic with my newest nephew to Instagram a few weeks ago and forgot to link it up on the blog. A few of you were interested in where I got my Throughway top. Also, here’s a previous post with the entire ensemble.
Well, we survived the first week of summer break! Although I wouldn’t really count it completely. The girls had a Pirate Camp at their school, so it was more of an extension of school, except no work, all play. They picked out their outfits each day. E had on fairy wings this day so she could be the Pirate Fairy. The staff always does such an awesome job making this a fun camp every year! Last year it was Circus Camp with magicians, clowns, etc. This year it was Pirate Camp with puppet shows, treasure hunts, etc. Next week will be the true test, especially since we won’t have the pool yet. It opens the following week.
I did have a public meltdown at Target on Thursday morning. It seems to always happen in the check-out line. Snapping this pic did manage to calm him down. Any kind of distraction seems to do the trick. I’m wearing one of my new tops I posted about on Thursday. Still getting tons of use out of my striped St. Anne Tote.
If you follow me on Instagram, expect to see more pics like this, until the pool opens…
Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!
