Scalloped Edges and Summer Hats

We are almost to the weekend already and I feel summer slipping through my fingers. Its been so good I really don’t want it to end. For the first time in many years it has felt long to me and I am grateful for that. Gabriel starts kindergarten tomorrow which I am a little dumbfounded over. More on that tomorrow! For now, here’s what I’ve been up to on the eHow style blog…

A few different ways I styled scalloped edges (have you tried these?). Surprisingly, you can wear them pretty casually….or even sporty.

Skirt (order a size up): ASOS // Tee: Old Navy // Watch: Michael Kors c/o // Necklace: Padgett Hoke // Sneakers: Converse // Sunnies: Reds Outfitters (gift)
Shorts: ASOS // Sweater: ASOS (similar) // Boots: J.Crew (similar)

And as you know, I have a thing for hats. Here are 5 summer hat styles I have been wearing over…and over. :) Have a splendid day friends!

4 Instagram Accounts to Sweeten your Monday

White and Blue | IHOD

Wait, what? It’s Monday??
Whirlwind weekend has my head spinning! How was yours?

I thought it would be fun to share with you some recent instagram accounts I really love. This is the one form of social media I really enjoy and don’t get overwhelmed by. I try to go one day each week when I cut off from the internet (oh do I love that freedom!), and on the days I do tune in, I am attempting oh so hard to keep to designated times. My goal is to get rid of mental clutter. I realize that even scrolling through feeds can eat up our mental and emotional energy, and many times it is on people who aren’t even huge parts of your life! Also, read the article “I’m Not Here, I’m Not There” in the current issue of Darling Magazine, and this study that proves constant multi-tasking/social media checking can dumb you down faster than marijuana. Yep. Nothing more motivating to be more disciplined with my phone than that little tidbit of gold.

That being said, when I do tune in, I really appreciate people who have a good perspective on life and share honest content. People who I respect and admire. Here’s a few to take note of:

Salt of the earth good people who I wouldn’t mind being neighbors with and sharing some conversation over coffee:) Who are some of your instagram favorites? I am all ears!

P.S. Shared three ways to wear this white dress on eHow as well as three sunglasses trends I am digging.

The Perfect Nude Pump + ShoeMint giveaway!

Electric BlueElectric Blue | In Honor of DesignWearing: Dress: J.Crew (on super sale) // Clutch: BaliELF c/o // Sunnies: Old Navy //  Necklace: Roe BLVD // Pumps: ShoeMint c/o 

As you can tell I am over the posey pics, so we played around with movement and shadows this go around. The shoes made me do it you know….

I have a tendency to avoid looks that are too matchy-matchy so throwing in a nude pump with some bold electric blue is my way of throwing off the expected. It’s tough to find a good nude pump though, I tell ya what! I searched high and wide. So when ShoeMint offered to team up again, I said sure…… as long as you throw me a nude pump that can kick the tires and light the fires! (Wink wink.) 

As you can see, these do the trick and they really do kick it too the curb on all fronts!  Comfortable believe it or not, not too round, not too pointy, and that perfect hue of blush nude. I can even do my squat jumps and not topple over so we are winning. A few other fab things you should know about ShoeMint in case you aren’t familiar: Free shipping both ways (tops my list!), refined materials such as leather and suede at an affordable price point, AND new styles are added monthly which makes it fun to re-visit. Whenever I login I see what shoes are geared towards my style profile, and always I nod my head and say “mmmmhmmm….you got that right.” On par every time!

Ready to win a pair of your choosing? Winner will be chosen next Tuesday! 

TO ENTER: Head over to ShoeMint, sign up (free and no obligation to buy), and leave a comment letting us know what your choice pair would be if you win!
