Home Is Wherever I'm With You

Hello there! Today I cleaned the apartment, did laundry, worked out, ran a couple last minute errands, packed some more, and we went to dinner with Bob's family. 
I can't believe it's finally here already, and we are leaving tomorrow! It's so great to be able to say that, and even better- to simply be away from work for nine days. It's a very freeing feeling. Vacations ALWAYS fly by so crazy fast, so I have to really try and savor each day, and make the most of everything. I am simply grateful that we are able to afford trips like this.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing one of my favourite shirts. I got it at TJ Maxx for I think $17. I love the cowl neck, and the colourblocking of my two fav colours. It's just all around a great shirt! Of course it matches perfectly with my new pink, orange, and aqua necklace.
The first picture below is of a pillow I bought at Home Goods yesterday. I really love it! It has so many colours in it, which of course is something that catches my eye!

New Yellow Shorts

Hello there! Well, thankfully the work week is now done. After work a couple of my friends and I went out for a drink. I ran a couple errands after that. And I'll be getting ready soon to go out with Bob and some other friends to a local bar. 
I picked up the yellow shorts I'm wearing in the pictures below on sale at Target tonight for $13.50. I had been eyeing them for months. It was great to score them at this low price! When I last tried them on, they were a bit small in my normal size. So, every time I checked back after that, they didn't have the size I needed. Luckily tonight they had one pair of the size I needed! They are a great shade of vibrant yellow. 
By the time I was ready to take these pics it was a little dark out, so that's why we took them inside. The lighting isn't too great in these. 
Of course I'm rocking one of my favourite new necklaces, and my favourite pair of sandals. I find myself wearing these sandals all the time. The colours in them match most of my wardrobe.

New Handmade Ice Cream Dress!

Hello there! My mom finished the first dress for me! I picked it up tonight. I reallyyyy love it. It's a little big in the bust/waist, but this thick black belt helps to hide that. She's going to take it in for me a bit when she gets home from vacation. I just think the pattern and colours are so amazing! I have this dress in green, I got it from Modcloth in June. I love both of them, but I definetly love pink more than green, ha. This dress is pretty close to a coral shade.
My new Francesca's Collections necklace paired well the coral and yellow in the dress. I love this necklace so much, I keep reaching for it to pair with outfits. 
Ahh, thank God tomorrow is Friday!!! But, the day is definetly going to drag since it's my last day at work before vacation. I am already on vacation in my mind, ha!

Pink/Orange= My Fav Combo

Hello there! 
In the pictures below, I'm wearing one of my two new Francesca's Collections necklaces. I really love this one! Pink and orange are my favourite colours, so it'll definetly match with a lot of my wardrobe. I also love how bright and cheery it is. 
The moccasins I'm wearing in the pictures are my favourite flats. I wear them constantly in the fall, spring, and even winter! Of course I love them so much because they're rainbow! I haven't worn them all summer, since I live in sandals in the summer. 
I have so many pink and orange shirts and dresses, and it's great because I have sooo many shoes and accessories that match perfectly! Ha. 
Bob and I started watching Breaking Bad Season 3 this week! But, he was out for hours last night, and probably will be tonight too, so I'm really itching to see it again! Might have to wait until tomorrow.

Orange/Pink/Red

Hello there! Ugh, it's Monday yet again. I won't be doing much tonight, besides working out. My mom might stop by for a little bit too, she wants me to try on the top part of a dress she's making for me. It'll be nice to relax tonight. I'm still a little tired from my lack of sleep this weekend. 
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a top I bought at Macy*s yesterday. I love the colours in the top.... the bright orange, red, pink, and blue especially. This necklace matches perfectly with it. I have three necklaces like this, and I love them. I frequently wear orange, pink, and red. The bright blue shade of my tank top/the bright blue in the top, seem to be quite popular lately. I've been finding a lot of items in this shade of blue, and it's my favourite shade of blue.

A Connecticut Weekend

Hello there! I've been having a great weekend. Got back from Connecticut around 1:30 today. (We also made a couple stops on the way home.) We didn't hit any traffic on the way back, which was great! We went in the ocean for a little bit yesterday. The water felt so great! There weren't any waves where we were though. Of course I got a little burned! I never seem to be able to prevent it, unforunatly.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a top that I picked up at TJ Maxx in Conneticut yesterday, it was $15. I love the leaf pattern on this top. I have this top in another pattern, I wore it on my blog a couple weeks ago. The brand of these two tops is Cable & Gauge.  Most of my shirts are this brand. I can usually get them at great prices at Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and Macy*s. I actually picked up another Cable & Gauge brand top today too, at Macy*s. 
I don't wear these shorts much, but I thought they were perfect paired with the shirt. (I don't wear a lot of green.) I wore a belt over the top, because they're not any definition in the waist on this top.

A Sizzling Friday

Hello there! Happy Friday! Still in a heat wave here.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a dress I've worn on my blog before. It's definetly one of my favourites. I wore this outfit to work yesterday. The dress is light and silky-ish. But, not see through at all, which is great. I got this necklace when I visited my sister in June. I haven't worn it since I bought it. I thought it looked good paired with this dress. 
I'm not sure if we're still visiting my sister this weekend, since it's supposed to storm tomorrow. I'll have to keep my eye on the weather, and we'll probably decide tonight.
