As July is quickly coming to an end, this means school will be in session very soon…NEXT WEEK!! Being a teacher is great because we’re able to recharge and reenergize over the summer and do as we please- which meant traveling for me! Last year we were able to take an extravagant honeymoon to Italy for a couple of weeks and I wasn’t able to document our stay in Rome and show you all of our GELATO pictures we were enjoying every single day (sometimes twice or three times a day)! If you’re ever in Rome, you must try GROM (for gelato) and LADUREE (for sorbets topped with macaroons). It’s a must!!
We traveled in July and the heat was pretty crazy because of the humidity so it was easier to choose lighter fabrics and hats that would be able to keep me cool! Of course for accessories, I couldn’t decide which Jcrew statement necklace to bring, so I just had to pack it all! Next up, will be more photos from our stay at the Coast!
I love Jcrew!!! One, their jewels are always so sparkly! Two, their clothes go on sale within 2 weeks! And three, teachers get an extra 15% off of anything and everything!!! WOO HOO!!! I was eying this jeweled collared shirt for awhile- then it went on sale…then it went on an additional 40% on top of it’s sale price… and then 15% off of that= $$30!!! What a steal right?! Love it! Well, this time I decided to pair it with an oldie but goodie necklace from last year. I really love the vibrant red flowers (from Jcrew) and pair it with just about everything I could think of and didn’t think it would match well with this shirt because of the jewels on the collar already, but hey, why not try it out right! There’s no rules in fashion anymore so you can mix and match just about anything and it’ll look cute! Since it’s summer, it’s pretty warm still at night so instead of jeans I wore my favorite silk shorts by Marc Jacobs with little flower buds all over. They’re from last season, but they go great with anything! I also did a red lip to go with my pop of color around my neck! Happy Summer!!!
This summer I’ve really been into crop tops! At first, I was like “no way would I ever buy one…” and now I’m like, “BRING ON THE CROPS!” So since summer is coming to an end, Intermix http://www.intermixonline.com is having a really great sale on a lot of great pieces! I went to one of their stores in the Brentwood Country Mart and fell in love with this Bailey 44 leather white and black bralet and found a great pair of silk long shorts (an Intermix exclusive) to match it with. Lucky for me both pieces were on an extreme super sale (better than the online prices) and paired together the two pieces go great for a nice summer day and night!!
