The July Edit

DRESS:: Carolina K // SANDALS:: Palmetto Handmade c/o // BAG:: Palmetto Handmade c/o // WHITE ORB NECKLACE:: Asha // INITIAL NECKLACE:: Zoe Lev

WEEKEND UPDATE:: It's hard to believe it's the middle of July already. Summer days go by so quickly, don't you think? We had one of the nicest weekends. We went to the beach yesterday and had some friends over today for swimming and lunch. The kids stayed in the pool all day long and we practically had to drag them out. I was really nervous about moving into a home that had a pool. A pool was actually on my list of negatives while house hunting. We ended up fencing off the part of the yard where the pool is and we also installed a protect-a-child mesh fence around the actual pool. It's not pretty but it makes me feel a whole lot safer.




ON TO THE EDIT:: Whenever July rolls around, I find myself gravitating towards brighter and bolder colors. Maybe it's because I know once September hits I'll be back into my land of neutrals until summer comes again. I found this dress while Chris, Ellie and I were walking around Nantucket over July 4th weekend. It's by Carolina K and it's the Greta Midi dress. I quickly popped into CJ Laing and it's the first dress I saw. There was something about the color and the beautiful sleeves that got me. I bought it without a second thought and I'm so happy I did. It's a dress that puts a little extra pep in my step. Scroll down to see the rest of what I'm loving this month!





THE JULY EDIT::
  • This dress. The smocked top and the sleeves. So pretty!
  • I randomly came across this dress and thought it looked pretty cool. 
  • These popped up on Instagram today and I really want to give them a try. My summer skin is so dry right now and I could use some gentle exfoliation. 
  • I've been on a crazy jewelry stalking kick and have mass followed a bunch of jewelry accounts. I'm obsessed with the layered look and have so many pieces on my wishlist. I love this necklace for summer layered with some daintier ones. I also love this necklace by Brinker & Eliza
  • I'm OBSESSED with this pleated cami in the pale alder color. Saw it in person and it's beautiful. Now that it's on sale I might just have to make it mine. 
  • I know some of you are over hearing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I just saw this skirt in the cream color and I think it would be so pretty all year long. With a fitted tank for summer and a cream sweater for winter. 
  • I like the style and print of this one piece, now what are the chances it will fit my long torso? PS: this suit DOES fit and I wore it this weekend! PPS: thank you for the love on the Instagram featuring that suit- I know I never really go into the "business" side of blogging, but I so appreciate your engagement. It makes putting the time and effort into this blog worthwhile. I don't have much free time and the little time I do have to myself goes to this blog. SO, thank you for taking the time to follow along and for your support! It means so much!
