Grounded Kitty

Embellished Military Shirt Jacket + Britney tee + Hunt the Plains boots (Jeffrey Campbell) + Jemima bralette: Free People


Happy hump day! Last night my dream involved cool weather and oh! how I wish that was true this morning. I need winter desperately.

But let's talk about this jacket. The detail on the sleeve is beautiful. It's a light shirt material, meaning it's somehow bearable in the heat. This is another loved item at Free People, and it also comes in army green.

When I told my husband we had a t-shirt at work that looked like a kitty destroyed it, he laughed. But wouldn't you agree? The name of this top should've been the "my kitty is grounded tee". Free People should let me name their products. 

Ps. I also need a cat.

Goodbye Summer

Alana pullover + Destroyed ankle skinny + Royale flats + Ring leader hat + Arrow stone ring + On the run belt: Free People




This is the one hat you buy that mysteriously goes with almost everything. At Free People we LOVE this hat.

Working retail has me thinking on comfortable footwear. Being on my feet for hours I knew I had to go with a more comfortable option; sadly it couldn't involve my every favorite pair of heeled boots. The Royale flat from Free People came to my rescue. These flats are amazingly comfortable and they fit my style perfectly. 

Although it's hot in south Florida, the thin, loose, and off shoulder material from the Alana pullover kept me comfortable in an air conditioned room. Can I also hear a 'hurrah' for saying goodbye to Summer? Not that it changes anything in the Floridian weather for a while, but it means it's the beginning of my four favorite months of the year.

The Senior Stylist

washed denim overalls + bandeau: Free People | top: Urban Outfitters | sandals: Anthropologie 



I wore this outfit like a month ago, and just now I'm getting to do a post about it. I'm so behind, but being super busy lately has kept me from blogging, and now with more rain coming our way who knows when pictures will be taken for my next blog post.
But I'm not closing the doors here yet, I promise!

My job at Free People is going really well. I love the atmosphere as well as the people that work there. And the even greater news is hearing that I got a promotion! Now you are looking at your new Senior Stylist at the Fort Lauderdale location. Over the moon over here! Come and visit.

Ash Platinum

Merpati shorts + bandeau + Baja Escape Wrap Cardi + Arrow Stone ring: Free People | gladiator sandals: Anthropologie



Working retail has definitely boosted my confidence on my hair color choice. There were times where I wasn't sure if the platinum was doing me any favors, but I've gotten so many compliments in the past couple of weeks. Hats off to my hairdresser Vanessa Dunson, she is amazing.

I have people ask me what shampoo I use to keep it looking from going copper-ish after a wash. The not so secret? I use Shimmer Lights by Clairol -shampoo and conditioner. It's purple in color, so it gets rid of the yellow copper tones in your hair. 
Ash platinum is here to stay! 

Now about the outfit: this cardigan reminds me of Rey's outfit from Star Wars. It's a great versatile piece that looks cute with jeans, shorts, dresses or possibly a Rey costume for Halloween?
The shorts have an abstract print but it makes me think of feathered native american headdresses. Anyone else see that?

Honey Dip

Honey dip vest + Arrow stone ring + fringed bag + Hunt the plains boots: Free People | shorts: Dstld | necklace: Premier Designs | Watch: Daniel Wellington


This soft sleeveless sweater is cool and comfortable enough to wear in this nasty summer heat. My love for neutrals never dies; I just can't ever have enough white tops. 

I look forward to the beginning of each month, as it's when the Free People catalog arrives. My last favorite catalog was back in April 2016; I wanted to jump inside every single page and join in on the adventure. The August issue has me swooning over almost every page, and there's a lot of pieces I'm already loving... Excuse me while I go chase my wallet, I think I heard it run away.
