Lots of grilling, lots of pool time, lots of snowcones, and lots of friends and family time!
We are really soaking up all the fun!
fyi: When editing this post last night, the hubby was running a fever. I hope he doesn’t mess with our summer mo jo this weekend!
Last month Nordstrom asked me to talk about summer jewelry, and although I already owned several pieces I knew I wanted to talk about (we’ll get to those items in a second), I also used the post as an excuse to order 2 new pieces.
You see what I did there? I needed to order two new pieces.
I also have a great new embroidered tank that I haven’t shown you guys yet that I think you are going to love!
tank HERE / cami HERE (awesome and only $12!)/ similar jeans HERE (with great reviews!) / similar sandals HERE
necklace HERE / earrings HERE (ON SALE!) / bracelet c/o Kendra Scott HERE / aqua bracelet HERE
Size References: I’m wearing a medium in the tank, but it was definitely blousy and I’m thinking I might should have gone with a small. I’m wearing a medium in the camisole and definitely need a medium in that.
PLEASE NOTICE THE CUTE LITTLE TRIM ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK!
The tank also comes in white and turqouise.
AND IT’S ONLY $28!
Many of you have commented previously that you loved the idea of my Gorjana hoops, but you didn’t like how large they were. Well, then THESE are for you! Same idea, but smaller scale!
And click HERE for the Kendra Scott white necklace.
I could go on…and on…and on about this necklace.
It’s DEFINITELY my favorite summer purchase thus far. I’m wearing it constantly.
This “Dylan” necklace has a bigger stone than the previous Elisa pendant necklaces that many of you have, and I absolutely love that it’s bigger. (If you are going for a more dainty look, then the Elisa is for you.) You have 6 total colors to choose from including turquoise, magenta, coral, black, and this really cool periwinkle/translucent glass.
I went with white because I thought it screamed summer!
Click HERE for the drusy friendship bracelet c/o Kendra Scott. When the Kendra Scott team sent this to me, I thought it was just “okay”. But that has changed. I now adore this bracelet. It’s so summery with the braided ribbon, and the drusy is sparkly and goes with everything!
Click HERE for the Argento Vivo stretch bead bracelet.
I love how pretty, feminine, and delicate they both are, and I think they look great paired together.

So the earrings say they are $48, but this morning they were reduced to $38.40. And my FAVORITE STRAPLESS BRA EVER is normally $60, but it’s on sale for $48 (scroll to the right to see it)!
You first saw this picture a couple of months ago, but this necklace is now available at Nordstrom!
I’m wearing it here by itself, but it would also be great layered with a shorter necklace.
jeans HERE (FULLY STOCKED, but probably not for long)
Floral cardigan and mustard tank sold out. 🙁
And aren’t these stack rings darling?
Pink and coral are so hot right now, so these were an easy decision for me.
Click HERE for the rings c/o Kendra (that also come in a turquoise combo HERE and a white and drusy combo that can be found HERE).
FYI: I’m holding them like this instead of showing them on my fingers for one simple reason. When in pictures, my hands look like they belong to a 94 year old woman. And I’m not okay with that.
I’ve found that my black maxi and denim jacket have both been in heavy rotation this summer. There are so many times that a maxi seems to be the perfect thing to wear.
Dressy….but not too dressy….and seriously comfortable.
Here’s a close up of the jewelry!
earrings HERE (ON SALE!)/ necklace HERE (on sale for UNDER $9!) / watch HERE
You know I love this watch, and I’m so happy with these new earrings! I love my Gorjana hoops, but I’m happy to have this smaller version as well!
Here’s a picture showing you the difference in sizes of my Gorjana hoops (on the outside) and the the smaller Argento Vivo hoops (on the inside).
And girls. My leopard wedges are still on sale!
If you remember, they are the ones that are so comfy that I wore them TO THE GROCERY STORE.
Several of you said you doubted my grocery store claim, but now you too are believers!
I hear you.
And I understand.
Here’s how to get the look for yourself, but remember the earrings are on sale:
You know I couldn’t have a jewelry post and not talk about my $8 studs.
Because you all know that I’m obsessed.
A reader posted on my facebook wall late Tuesday night, and it TOTALLY made my day.
Here’s the picture she posted and what she wrote:
A group of us gals in Midland , TX had a great social night swapping our “favorite things”! (As requested after an amazing Christmas version in December hosted by Lisa Davis as well). This was my “favorite thing”… The BP studs that I discovered from following my FAV blog, PTMT! Love following you and all your awesome items!!! Get ready for MANY more fans from West TX! – Alli ?

So, in summary, THIS necklace is my favorite new summer piece.
I love that it’s white and that it goes with everything. I really do feel it’s the perfect summer necklace.
