Fourth Fashion

Independence Day is next week, so I put together 3 looks I would wear for the occasion. The great news is these can double up for USA games during the World Cup (Tim would be so proud) :) 

top // shorts // earrings // shoes // bag 

top // bag // shoes // skirt

Which is your favorite?

This past Friday Tim and I went to one of our favorite spots, Brooklyn Cafe.  

I was looking for black scalloped shorts for a few weeks, and it was my lucky day when I walked into Francescas and found this pair, in my size, on the "last chance to fabulous" rack, aka 40% off!

 I also picked up this top [actually Tim treated me to it] during their BOGO 50% sale. I mean those sleeves couldn't be passed up. 

As you can see it was shining bright like a diamond when we shot these pictures before leaving. 

I couldn't pass up a close-up on the sleeve detail.

Or a shoe shot.

You can't visit Brooklyn Cafe without ordering these Artichoke hearts. Tim always has to remind me how to eat them, I feel like a kid asking "can I eat this part?"

After dinner, we went to Cafe Intermezzo, which is actually where we had our first date. 

You might think it took us forever to decide (this is just the cheese cake selection); however, after many attempts I have found my favorite.

Oreo :) 

Outfit details:
Top && Shorts: Francesca's
Shoes: Tory Burch (similar)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff ( currently 15% off)

I hope ya'll had a wonderful weekend, minus that USA tie (it basically feels like a loss)

Zebra and Lime

This look is from last Sunday, and I can just tell you right now these shorts are going to be worn all summer long. I found them in the J. Crew sale racks and didn't hesitate to buy them. I'm glad I didn't purchase them when I saw them a few weeks ago, they rung up for half the price! {Find them here}  My top is older from Express, and the wedges I'm sure ya'll are familiar with by now :) But if you're interested they can be found here. The last picture is a peak at what I was trying on at Francescas. I love the Aztec printed sequin top and fun kimono! I always find items there during the spring/summer. 

Thanks for reading,

Weekend Refresh

Atlanta recently opened a Kendra Scott store, and I decided to check it out over the weekend-It was so gorgeous! I love the way they designed the store with drawers to pull out all the displays. I could have spent hours in there! Plus you can design your own pieces in the store and they make it right then and there. On wednesdays, they host a girls night out and offer special deals, cupcakes, and champagne (they know how to bring us in don't they?!) I picked up the spear earring pictured above in the teal color. Also, make sure to sign up on the website for their emails for 15% off, which they will honor in store.

I checked out the cold press juice bar next door for lunch. I wish there was one closer to home. Such an easy way to get the nutrients you need. 

How gorgeous would this dress be for a summer wedding? It's sold out online in this color, but it's available in a gorgeous blue here

I love this pineapple top and these sandals featured in my last Friday Favorites. Tank // Sandals

What I wore. Shorts (additional 30% off on sale price) // Tank: Express

Tonight I'm heading to Fado to watch the USA game, wish me luck ;) 
Have a wonderful week!

Aqua and Crochet

Dinner dates at Marlows has quickly made it into our restaurant rotation. My top is from Dress Up, and can be worn as pictured or with the "sleeves" pulled off the shoulder, which would look perfect at the beach. My white jeans are old from Target- side note if you ever want to feel really bad about your body go try on pants at Target… I had to size up times like 2. These wedges are definitely a staple this month, so you might be seeing them on repeat the next few posts. 

Tim would have called this post World Cup since it's opening day- he's been counting down the days since. Funny enough I asked him and he actually said "World Cup Fever" so I wasn't too far off :) Who's excited to watch? It's my first one!
