Day: Sunday, August 23, 2015.
Where: Church, Elevation Burger for lunch, and Bowling with some friends.
The Cole Haan sandals have been in my closet forever and I love them so much, they give height without being too uncomfortable.
Outfit Details: Dress, J. Crew; Shoes, Cole Haan (similar here at amazon.com); Necklace, J. Crew; Sunglasses, Anthropologie.
Anecdote of the Day: We saw some good friends at mass and when we mentioned that we were going bowling, their ears perked up. We thought, "hey, let's invite them the next time we go," but they could come that afternoon. I love it when plans fall into place so easily. It was awesome. :-) I did okay, but I want to always do better. BTW, I am not joining the bowling league this year (sad) since my new job means I don't have enough spare time to make it happen. So I really will need these outings to keep my bowling skills up.
Day: Wednesday, August 19, 2015.
Where: Winesday at Whole Foods.
Outfit Details: Dress, J. Crew; Birkenstock Madrid Sandals, this exact pair can be found here at amazon.com (amazon.com also has the shade in these sandals and J. Crew still has some of the mirrored Madrid available); Necklace, J. Crew; Sunglasses, Anthropologie.
Anecdote of the Day: So the week before I had seen my ex-roommate at Whole Foods at Winesday. I am happy to report there was no sighting of him this time. :-)
Day: Friday, August 21, 2015.
Where: Swimming Pool.
Outfit Details: Swimsuit, J. Crew (my version is only available in d cup or long torso, but the pretty fern print one is still around in a regular length).
Anecdote of the Day: I did nothing but laze around with my kids and my dad at the pool that day. I was glad I took those moments, though, since the next week was an endless parade of school meetings and classroom work. I was exhausted from all the teacher prep I did. (I will do those teacher type outfits later this week, fwiw.)
Day: Saturday, August 22, 2015.
Where: Rex's baseball tryouts, Stella and Dot party, and a dog fair.
Outfit Details: Tee, Madewell; Shorts, Boden (this year's styles here); Shoes, J. Crew (in navy here); Sunglasses, Anthropologie; Necklace, gift.
Anecdote of the Day: My friend, A., mentioned there was some kind of fair near us when I was at the Stella and Dot party. Initially I was supposed to walk three miles home from the party, but instead I went with her to the dog fair. In the end, snuggling cute puppies and then only getting 1.5 miles seemed to be a fair trade. Right? ;-)
Okay, I hope you all are doing well! Have a great last few hours of August and happy early September!
