F21 Top // Zara Skirt // J.Crew Belt // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Wedges // J.Crew Lipstick, Peony Pink

It's finally Friday!  With a long weekend attached.  Does it get much better?  No, not really.  Hope you all have relaxing plans as it's kind of the last weekend of summer.  Not technically but as far as I'm concerned.

 Target Blouse // Old Navy Jeans // J.Crew Wedges // Ray Ban Sunnies // J.Crew Watch

Red lips, green plaid and bam it suddenly looks like Christmas up in here.  And to be honest I am completely okay with that, maybe even what I was going for?  I will tell you though, it was a terrible choice.  This day I had a terrible headache and so I thought "hey, it would be nice to feel cute today". Well cute I did not feel, my face was sweating, my back was sweating, basically everything had sweat on it.  But I suppose that's what you get when you try to channel Christmas in 90 degree weather.  Lesson learned.  I'll leave that for December from here on out.

J.CREW iPhone Case // MADEWELL Sunglasses // ZARA Messenger Bag // J.CREW Hat // MADEWELL Belt // GAP Clutch // SAM EDELMAN Heels

Seriously though, that baseball cap is killing it.  I tried it on and let me tell you, big mistake.  My head needs it but my wallet can't afford.  Such a sad realization.  But damn, it looks so good.  The other things on here are cute too.  But nothing compares, in price or beauty.


1 1/2 pound salmon filet
1 teaspoon chile powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cumin
8 tortillas

1 bag shredded cabbage
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tspn sugar
pinch salt and chile powder

1 mango, skinned and cut into small dice
1/4 diced red onion
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
pinch salt

1. Season and grill salmon until fully cooked.
2. Combine Ingredients to make slaw.
3. Combine ingredients to make salsa.
4. Heat tortillas on stove until crisp
5. Shred Salmon and fill tacos with all ingredients.

*You can definitely add cilantro to the salsa but due to my pure hate for it I decided to leave it out.  But, do as you wish and enjoy.  They are light and delicious and perfect for taco tuesday!  Plus I added some diced avocado!

J.Crew Denim Jacket // J.Crew Top // Anthropologie Shorts // Sam Edelman Sandals // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Bracelet

First, and I think I've already said this, but I am so done with this shorts weather.  Second, my J.Crew link bracelet is one of those purchases, that at the time I thought was frivolous (because let's be honest, it kind of was) but has proven itself in my wardrobe time after time.  I wear it more than anything else I own.  Just browse the archives, I'm sure you'll find it in 9/10 posts.  It's just that piece for me that adds a little something special to any outfit.  

Do you have one piece that you wear on an almost daily basis?

Anthropologie Blouse // J.Crew Blouse // J.Crew Heels // J.Crew Clutch, Similar // J.Crew Link Bracelet

Living in Southern California, along the San Andreas fault line I was inspired to purchase this seismograph-inspired top to remind me of the natural disasters we have here.  Just kidding.  I found it on sale, in my size and it's cute.  That's all there is to it and all there usually is.  I wore this out to dinner over the weekend and it was such a fun night with my husband.  I ordered drink after drink, literally.  I had two, but that was more than enough and we just had a blast.  

Anyway, I also love this skirt.  It's a different style for me and I just felt cute and flirty.  My only grievance is that it runs big (like most J.Crew).  Other than that I think I'll wear it all the time.  Go buy it.  It also comes in white!

Madewell Skirt // Zara Jacket // J.Crew Shoes // J.Crew Top // J.Crew Pants

I've been loving all things leather lately.  It can make you feel a little more edgy than you might actually be and that's always a fun thing.  It's also a great way to transition into fall before the weather catches up with you.  I especially love the J.Crew tee and the Madewell skirt!  These two are definitely on my list!

Madewell Top // Madewell Jeans, Similar // Zara Sandals // J.Crew Belt // J.Crew Bag

Since my legs are only about a 28 inch inseam, a skinny jean that runs much longer is just completely lost on me.  I don't like the look of jeans bunched at my ankles and rolling them can also be quite a hassle.  While I was somewhat sorting through my closet I found these old Madewell jeans and thought I'd cut the edges since I didn't wear them anyway.  To my surprise I actually liked them!  I have a tendency to cut things up in the hopes or recreating the piece into something really special and unique and it is generally a flop and ends up in my trash can.  I was so excited they worked out that I forgot to throw out the ends.  My husband was lucky enough to find them on his side of the bed that night.  He was obviously just as thrilled as me!  

Have you reworked any clothes in your closet lately?

J.Crew Chambray // Madewell Shorts // J.Crew Shoes - Similar // Fossil Bag // Madewell Sunnies

Some messy hair to go with a man inspired outfit.  Even though it's hotter than ever, and no chance of it letting up any time soon I am more drawn to fall.  Fashion world why do you do this to me??!!  I wish that they would push bad the release of fall by a month or so so that when it cooled down (kind of) is when fall would come out instead of the heat of summer.  Oh to wish.... I'll just continue to sweat my way through it, not so glamorous but really, what is?

MinkPink Dress // J.Crew booties // J.Crew Clutch // Madewell Sunnies

This is one of those dresses that I found at a small boutique a while back but just didn't want to shell out the hundred bucks to make it mine.  So i relentlessly stalked it online at shopbop until it got marked down, then waited until it got marked down again and then finally pulled the trigger when they had an additional off markdowns.  That's a deal for the books I tell ya.  The old me would have bought it on the spot just to be able to see it in my closet a little sooner.  Now I prioritize the clothes in my life.  I've grown so much :)  I got my normal size but it runs a bit tight through the shoulders so if you're in between I would recommend going up!  I think it's the perfect dress for this transitional period we're in, and will be until mid to late November (at least in SoCal) so get your hands on it.

Hope you all have a great weekend!  I have no plans and it's just the way I like it!  What about you?

 Madewell Top // Zara Skirt // J.Crew Bag // J.Crew Belt - Similar // J.Crew Wedges // J.Crew Bracelet

I wear a lot of skirts for work because they are an easy way to feel pulled together and cute.  However because I wear them to work I don't like to wear them any other time in my life because they are "work" skirts.  It seems like anytime I try to wear one for something else I don't like it because I have this fear that then I will have to go to work.  Silly, I know.  So I found this skirt and thought it was just too cute to pass up so I designated it my non-work skirt so I could be happy wearing it off the clock, and happy I am!  Do you have any pieces like that in your closet?  That no matter how cute they are you can only wear them for one part of your life?

I saw this on pinterest the other day and just thought I had to share it. 

My week seems to be moving at a snails pace, hoping yours is a little better!
