The blueberry bloosums are really thick this summer, I'm hoping we will have another fabulous year for berry picking. I just used up the last of our blueberries from last summer for a Blueberry Gobbler so we're feeling the lack of them. 
This is just a few of my favorite summer items, I love these shorts from AEO! They have a nice high rise and a decent inseam with a looser leg so they're about perfection.

I can managed to not fall in the water but walk on a flat road without biting the dust? Nope!

Keep It Short

H&M Hat
L.L. Bean Denim Vest (thrifted)
AEO Dress (2014 or 2013)
Rag and Bone Leather Shorts (ebay)
Free People Sandal and Bag (ebay)

I wore this two ways, with the dress over the shorts and then with a deep side tuck.  I like wearing shots when I wear this dress because it's so flippy and since we were at the playground for a bunch of the day, shorts were a good idea.  I do like it with the drape so I'll have to remember to wear it with my HL tunic some time.  I've been trying to be good and make sure I get a lot of wear out of these shorts - for some reason I'm on much more of a shorts kick than I was last summer.

Rose Garden

H&M Hat
Free People Dress (eba)
Isabel Marant Boots (ebay)
Ecote Bag

The fence along the opening of our drive is covered with wild roses that have grown up the fence over time.  The roses are only in bloom for about a week but they're beautiful when they are.  The petals have all fallen off by now and the wild irises have taken their place.  I enjoy the wild flowers so much and feel really fortunate  to live somewhere so beautiful - it even makes the cold winters worth it.
These pictures were a little tricky as the lace dress blends right into my skin in the pictures, right now the sun is up almost 24 hours so unless I find some shade, a lot o the color in the photos gets washed out.

Big Deal Mkay

AEO Jacket(2013) and Dress
UO Hat
Target Bag (2015)
Free People Heels

Happy Father's day all!  
I slack a bit on the blog this past week, it feels like summer is just flying by right now.  Before we know it the kids will be back to school, the leaves will be changing and we'll be preparing for winter. (Ugh, that word...)  I've gotten a lot of use out of this simple black maxi so far, I usually throw it on over my bathing suit when we are heading to the beach but I also wear it quite a bit otherwise.  It's just a simple maxi but it has a great drape and flow to it.   This Target bag gets pulled out of the box every summer, it's so pretty but I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a bag that would only see 3-4 months of use so I was excited when I saw it at Target a few years back.  We don't have a Target within 300 miles so when we make a trip down to Anchorage the kids always want to make a stop at the Wasilla one - my kids are pretty sure Target is a big deal.  (Sort of how I feel about Costco!)

Isabel Marant Blouse (ebay) and Boots (ebay)
Vince Suede Pants (ebay)
Paige Jacket (thrifted)
Free People Bag

This is pretty close to a outfit I posted during the 10x10 a little while back - just different boots and bag.  I don't usually wear light colored boots with dark pants because I'm a weirdo about things like that ( belt, bas ad shoes matching? Yeah, that's me most f the time....) ut I'm trying to break out of some of my patterns.

Two In One

Free People Hat (old)
Winter Kate Dress (ebay)
Clogs (thrifted)
I tied the dress up for most of the morning and it stayed up surprisingly well but it was so warm by the afternoon that I had to let it  back down again - the less touching the skin the better! the sad part is, it wasn't even 80F out....I'm such a wimp.
