Another Lazy Sunday

Hello! Well, I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I LOVE summer! Can't believe this is the last dayof June already. It's a shame, summer is always so fleeting. But, I try to savor it as much as I can. Four weeks from today, Bob and I will be on vacation in Virginia Beach. 
I haven't done much today. I worked out, watched some silly TV, (nothing good is on) and read a bit. I don't want to go anywhere, because I don't want to spend any money. And also, I don't mind being lazy on Sundays. We usually just stay in the apartment on Sundays.
I really hope this week goes fast! And I'm so looking foward to being off on Thursday! :)
In the pictures, I'm wearing one of my favourite shirts. I have it in a 3/4 sleeve version, too. When I find something I love and that's flattering, I often buy it in multiple colours/patterns. This is the only time I've bought that exact same patterned item, just with different sleeve lengths.  
The shirts I have like this one (I have a lot of shirts in this style) unfortunatly tend to get pills on them. I bought a pill shaver at Target a few months back. It somwhat works, but it doesn't get them completly off. I can definetly see a difference though, when using it. I hate pills!

New Sandals

Hello! The food was so good last night. I got the Bavarian soft pretzels with beer cheese soup dip. So yummy!! I wish we went there more often. I've only gotten food there three other times, and I got the soft pretzels once before. The soup dip is just as good as the pretzels themselves.
So far it hasn't rained today, which is great. We've gotten so much rain lately. The road in front of our apartment was flooded the other night for a little bit, since we got flash flooding that night. 
It's going to be so nice to have a short week next week! We're closed on Thursday, for 4th of July. Bob and I are going to my parent's house that day. My sister will be home then, too. She'll be here for a few days. And my mom's birthday is next Sunday, so I'm sure I'll be back there on Sunday, too. I can't wait for all the great food on the 4th! I'm going to be making chocolate oatmeal cookies to bring there. 
The dress I'm wearing in the pictures below is one of my absolute favourites. I've worn it before, on other blog posts. Today, I'm wearing it with my new sandals that arrived yesterday. I love the pairing of my bright like belt, with the bright turquoise sandals.

Zig Zag Wedges

Hello there! Happy Friday!! It came back around again, and I'm very excited about that. Ha. Weekends are just even better in the summer, and they also go even faster! There's so many fun places to go to, and warm weather things to do. And one month from today I'll be on vacation in beautiful Virginia Beach! I can hardly wait. 
Tonight, Bob, some of his friends, and I are going to Brew Works in Bethlehem, PA. We're going to be eating dinner there, and getting drinks. They have great food and drinks! 
Lately, I've been seeing so much stuff I want from Modcloth! So hard to stop buying things. I ordered a dress with an ice cream cone print on it two days ago. I also have sandals on the way that will probably be here today. And there's an adorable dress that I've been waiting to come in stock for a long time, and it's finally available! It has different kinds of fruit all over it.
Yesterday, I ordered a necklace online from Francesca's Collections. It's very bright! Can't wait for it to get here.
Of course when we went outside to take the pictures, the sun had just gone away. And now it's raining very hard. Luckily, we got out there before the nasty rain came.
I love the shirt I'm wearing in the pictures below. The shirt is Cable & Gauge brand. I think it's quite flattering. I love empire waist tops. I like the crossover style, too. And it's a great shade of pink. I also have this top in teal. When I find great, flattering clothing I tend to buy multiples. Especially if the price is great. These tops are from TJ Maxx. I got them a year ago, I think they were $17 each. The tote bag is Vera Bradley. I love it so much! I bring it to work every day.
The wedges I'm wearing in the pictures are from our first trip to VA Beach, two years ago. They are Rocket Dog brand. They are easy to walk in, and don't hurt me. Love the zig zag pattern on them. 
The necklace I'm wearing in the pictures is a necklace that I wear all the time. It matches with a lot.

Orange/Black

Hello there! Once again, another work week is over half way done, which makes me quite happy.Tonight Bob made chicken & dumplings. This is one of my favourite meals! My mom never made it when I lived at home. But, I first had it at Bob's parent's house. His mom made it, and once she found out how much I loved it, she made it a lot! Ha. Which was nice. Bob makes it about once a month. I wouldn't even mind if there was no chicken! I just love the dumplings.
In the outfit below, I have that shirt in two other colours too. I especially like how they look tucked in to skirts. I like the area at the shoulders a lot, it's like a chiffon ruffle. This is an outfit I wear to work, although lately I've just been wearing dresses to work. I LOVE this skirt. I love the shade of orange, and I like the style of it a lot. The heels I'm wearing, I wear to work all the time. They don't hurt me at all, which is great.
The lighting is bad in these pictures. This weekend I'll definetly be taking pictures outside, which will be an improvement for the pictures I've been getting lately, inside the apartment.

Another Hot One!

Hello there! Wow, is it hot out today! My hair has gone crazy frizzy....it's just lovely. Ha! I REALLY need to cut it. The split ends are out of control. I may cut is quite short. The only drawback would be is that, if I got it cut really short, I'd have to straighten it every day. And I also wouldn't be able to pull it back, and that would be annoying for when I'm working out!
In the pictures below I'm wearing a dress I came across today in TJ Maxx, while on lunch break. I hadn't been seeing much that I liked there, in a few months now. But, I loveee this dress! It's super comfy, and I love the print. My sandals match it very well, too. It's Cynthia Rowley brand. I love her dresses! I have four other dresses by her, that I found at TJ Maxx and Marshall's. This one was a steal! Only $25. While I was checking out in line, I had a woman tell me she really liked it. 
I have another pair of these sandals on the way! I already had them in a bright yellow, too. But, I just ordere them in bright blue. Can't wait for them to get here. They really are the comfiest sandals.
I wanted to take these pictures outside, but I figured I'd start sweating right away! Ha. And make my hair/make up even worse.

Shocking Coral And Bright Blue

Hello there! Of course this weekend is flying by. Ugh...it's ridiculous how fast weekends go! Especially in the summer, when there's so much fun stuff to do! 
In the pictures below, I'm just wearing a very simple summer outfit. I have this tank top in a few colours. It's comfy, and fits better than a lot of tank tops I've tried on. The bracelet matches it well. I've never bought anything else at the store called Icing, before. I got this bracelet probably close to two years ago. The necklace I'm wearing in the pictures, I wear all the time. It's one of my favourite accessories. 
I'm wearing Maybelline lipstick in the pictures. I love the bright pink shade. It's called "Shocking Coral."
Five weeks from today we leave for vacation! We're going to Virginia Beach.

Hello, Summer! Nice to see ya

Hello there! Well, summer is officially upon us, and I couldn't be happier about it! It's very sunny out today & quite warm. It's perfect! 
I just had a cookie dough Dairy Queen blizzard for lunch. Yum!!There's not much that's better than ice cream. Especially when it's hot out!
Today so far I cleaned the apartment, did laundry, and worked out. I really like getting all that stuff out of the way early in the day, if possible. Later on, Bob's brother and a couple of his friends are coming over. We are walking to some bars in the area. It'll be so nice to be able to walk outside late at night & not be freezing!
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a skater dress from Express. I love these dresses so much! And it's nice to be able to have a lot of options for what shoes/accessories to pair the dresses with. I love the bright orange shade of the dress paired with the coral coloured belt. The sandals I'm wearing are from Modcloth, I've been wearing them all the time! Very comfy.
