Fashion Friday: Edition the summer schedule

I realize I haven’t been the most consistent about keeping up with the blog over the last few days. It’s mainly because now that I know the government is reading everything I write, I feel a little self-conscious and exposed.

Except that’s not really why. Because heaven help our government if they think anything I write is worth their time.

It’s really because summer requires a bit of an adjustment period. As in I don’t really have a lot of down time and I’m trying to figure it out and Caroline spent three hours “styling” my hair in various configurations last night and then giving me a “makeover”.

So this is the part where I say I’m going to do my best to write on a fairly regular basis this summer but I also know that I’m about to get edits back for my next book and I’m sure that will create quite the workload. Because I have a tendency to overuse punctuation and all caps and my sweet editor has to work very hard to make me better than I really am.

Anyway, that’s where I am right now.

Fortunately there is always time for fashion. Here are some cute things I found this week:

1. gap shoreline slub tee

I love a good tee from Gap for the summer. These are really cute and come in some cute colors.

2. mexicali floral cuff

Coral is such a great color to use as an accent with summer outfits.

3. lace neck top

This would be really pretty with shorts or jeans. And would look pretty under a blazer in the fall.

4. lush knit maxi

These maxis from Nordstrom are really cute and come in some great colors.

5. zigigirl cole boot

I’m on the fence with the booties. They’re everywhere. People wear them with shorts. I’m conflicted.

But I do think these are really pretty.

6. tiered linen skirt

This a great summer skirt. Add a t-shirt and a necklace and you’ve got a cute outfit.

7. piper tunic dress

I really like this and it would look great with leggings and boots later in the year.

8. ruched neck tank dress

If you’re looking for a great casual summer dress, Ann Taylor Loft is your place. All their dresses are 40% off right now.

9. sea of love patterned blouse

This would be great with white jeans or white shorts.

10. free people city limits tiered dress

I love this. I’d wear it with cowboy boots. The end.

That’s it for today.

Y’all have a great Friday.

    Can’t wait for your next book. I loved Sparkly Green Earrings. It hit so close to home… only child, the gifted and talented testing, child WITH a HUGE personality! I laughed out loud several times – loved it!

    gah! What is with all the see thru fabric lately? The first t-shirt is adorable, but you can see her pants thru it! I shouldn’t have to wear a tank under a tee shirt to be comfortable! Thank you, ranting about knits is done now. :)

    I was so disappointed this wasn’t in my inbox this morning but happy to see it when I returned from lunch!

    Funny story…I was contemplating ordering that Tee from the Gap, then got distracted and didn’t do it. Seeing on your site (and not Gaps) makes me realize that…yep…I NEED it! My first time visiting your blog and I really like it!!! 😀 Keep it up!

    That bracelet is stunning!
    I have a hard time embracing the booties as well. . .and the name doesn’t help. . I mean, I live with three kids, 2 of them boys, calling something a bootie is gonna evoke a rib punch and giggle.

    Mmmkk, I just don’t understand booties with a dress. It just isn’t flattering in my opinion. But I’m not as stylish as some. :)

    I love the boots! I can see them during transition as we are over summer, and ready for fall. They would be great with dresses, and shorts and a tank or sleeveless top for night or concert!

    Some Friday will you have a guest blogger do “Fashion Friday for Chubby Girls”? I LOVE all the styles you post, but as my mom always said, do the best with what you’ve been given. A flat stomach and nice arms I have not been given. waaa waaa waaaaaaa
