THE BEST WHITE JEANS

And just like that the unofficial start to summer kicks off this weekend, which means it is now appropriate to wear white jeans. Okay, let’s be honest people, I wear white jeans all year round (I’m a rule breaker, it’s fine), but the newest styles are here for summer and I have been testing out a few new favorites just in time for the holiday.

STYLE DETAILS: No. 185

Style Details

Is anyone else ready for the official kick-off to pool season, cutoff shorts, juicy watermelon and songs of the summer? We will be spending our memorial day weekend with some great friends up in the mountains for a wedding. If it wasn’t supposed to be in the low 50s and rainy in Colorado, I would definitely be wearing a swimsuit my new shorts. I seriously cannot get enough of my perfect fitting Levis. They were definitely a little bit of a splurge, but after looking for the perfect fit for over a year, I have to say, they were worth every penny.

STYLE DETAILS: MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Memorial_Day_Style

There is nothing I love more than dressing for an occasion. Especially when it involves stripes and my favorite color combination. Memorial Day is around the corner and I am so excited to celebrate in style.  I will be sporting this bathing suit, my favorite cutoffs, and this white linen shirt for our friend’s pool party and then switch into some stripes and a pair of white crop flares for night.

Can we be real today?

Okay, good.  This week has really just felt a little blah.  I spent most days either at my computer working until all hours of the night/morning, in bed, or eating pizza on the couch (insert monkey covering his eyes emoji). So to be completely honest, my life was anything but glamorous this week.

It doesn’t help that it has been raining for the last 2 weeks in Dallas- it is just really killing my vibe. This long weekend could not come at a better time. Me and my husband (still getting used to saying that word :)) decided to stay in Dallas for the weekend. We have been living here for over a year, but due to our crazy schedules, planning a wedding out of town, and our love for travel, we haven’t found the time to explore our own city.

If you live in Dallas, please send your recommendations on places we have to go, try or see!

A little side note, there are so many amazing sales going on this weekend. So while you are laying in bed on Sunday morning, this is the time to scoop up some must-have items for Summer!

Anthropologie has prints galore on sale- this weekend is an extra 20% off with the code GONEFISHING 

JCrew: 30% off your entire online order using the code WEEKEND (have you seen the new arrivals? I want need everything)

Nordstrom is having their Half Yearly Sale.  You do not want to miss this. Head here to see my top picks.

THINGS I LOVE

I just love the summer months- maybe it has something to do with growing up in Arizona and the scalding hot temps, but I love sun and being outside when the sun is shining. Since we have officially kicked off summer with the Memorial Day weekend, the pool is finally open and I cannot wait to throw on my new suit– I am seriously obsessing over Marysia’s zig zag suits. I really wanted this Flamingo print, but I decided to go safe and get the solid blush color. I love how it looks with a good tan!

Patrick and I are headed to Nashville for the first time to go see Bob Dylan in concert, do a little bar hopping on Broadway street, and hopefully see sweet Jessica. I have a long list of places to eat, and I am so excited. We are definitely stopping at Mas Tacos for lunch but if any of you lovies have any advice I would love to hear your recommendations.

I have had an obsession with fresh berries as of late. I have been eating them at almost every meal and they are not too bad in a glass of champagne either. My drink of choice this month has been a glass of rose, or a delicious Greyhound..the grapefruit juice is just so refreshing.

With a good tan, I try not to wear as much makeup. I love a NARS illumnator and a dusting of NARS Laguna bronzer for the perfect glow and some soft pink lip gloss and normally call it a day. Do you have any beauty favorites for the summer months?

LOVE YOU, FRIDAY

And we are off! I cannot believeit is the weekend already, and I am definitely not complaining. This week just flew by and Patrick surprised me once again with a visit home (gosh I love it when he is home). I will be working most of the weekend but hope to enjoy some down time with the pups, friends and hopefully make it pool side one of these days and of course a lot of barbecuing. I just love any excuse for a good barbecue (especially the chips and dips and a Tank 7- I am a beer girl at heart). Although I will not be heading to the lake or jet setting to the beach for the weekend, I do want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. What kind of fun plans do you have set for the long weekend?

Hopefully I will be checking out some of the great Memorial Day sales too:

TODAY

I had two posts scheduled for today, but it just didn’t feel right to talk about my new watch or Memorial Day style with all of the devastation happening in Oklahoma. People woke up this morning without their homes, loved ones, and or any physical possessions. I was listening to the radio on my way to work and hearing those innocent children tell their stories made me want to cry. So today, I think it is important to take a moment of silence and support those who are suffering.  It is pretty incredible to read the stories from all of these people donating their time and money.

You can text “RED CROSS” to 90999 from your phone to donate $10.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! While everyone enjoys the lake, beach or backyard barbecue, we have to remember what this day is all about; celebrating the men and women that fight for our freedom everyday. So my sun hat goes out to them for allowing me the privileges of freedom and safety. I hope you enjoyed a fabulous long weekend.
