In case you didn’t see my announcement earlier this week, I’m not recapping The Bachelor this week.
3 days worth of fever AND pink eye (yes, gross) TOOK ME DOWN.
Luckily I had some other posts already written, and that’s what got published this week.
And it feels awful.
Just call me Bob.
(I wonder how many people got that joke.)
I received THIS romper in the mail a couple of days ago, and even though I soooo badly wanted to love it, I didn’t.It wasn’t flattering on me, so it’s going back.
Heads up to all the clothes out there, if you want to live in my closet, you’ve got to make me look skinny. Know this.
I got THIS shirt, and I DO love it!
It’s kind of sheer on the back, so I’ll be wearing a nude tank with it.
I’d take a picture and post it, BUT I DON’T KNOW IF I MENTIONED I HAVE PINK EYE.
You ladies went CRAZY over THESE earrings and the fact that they are $10 OFF right now.
(I’m not sure why, but the price right now isn’t showing that they are on sale, but they are.
Regular price is $38.)
Read facebook comments from readers HERE if you are on the fence about them.
I tell you, the comments are pretty dang convincing.
ESPECIALLY this one from cute Dana:
have the clear crystal/gold, navy, bright blue, dark green, white,
tiger’s eye & light purple…and now I’m about to order the pink
& yellow!!!! The white ones are fantastic for summer — I’ve worn
them so many times over the past few weeks!
I told Dana I wanted to be her best friend.
First of all, I had never even considered white, but she made a very good point about white being great for summer.
Secondly, the girl doesn’t mess around.
She found a pair of earrings she likes, and she decided to be ALL IN.
You have to admire dedication like that.
And I realize this is a little unconventional considering it’s JUNE…..
but I’m making them a Santa Alert!
These Kate Spade studs would make THE PERFECT Christmas gift or stocking stuffer!
And for $10 off right now, WHY THE HECK NOT?
KATE SPADE studs HERE .
If you went ahead and bought some for Christmas gifts, you’re going to have to leave a blog comment. I’m always fascinated by people that are so good at shopping for Christmas all year long!
And if you’ve been on the fence about my nude patent flats, you might want to read THESE facebook comments too. It’s not just me that loves these particular flats. And they are ON SALE!!!!!
(Several of you have asked, and I have no idea when the sale ends. So sorry!
Listen, you and me both wish Nordstrom would confide in me.) 🙂
all other colors (including snakeskin) HERE
The Hunter boots site has a pretty large selection on sale for 30% off making the boots
right under $100!!!!!!
Thank you Courtney for letting me know!
I have several friends that have been wearing them for years, and I
have 2 friends in particular that have been at the scarf party the whole
I won’t mention any names.
These 2 girls have rocked scarves for years. YEARS!
Still, even though I always thought they looked super cute in their scarves,
I steadfastly proclaimed that I wasn’t a scarf girl.
I just didn’t understand the way a scarf has the ability to totally transform an outfit.
Because it can.
It totally can.
It can even make plain jeans and a plain white t-shirt DARLING!
Scarves are magic like that.
Now I’m always on the look-out for a new and great scarf, and a couple of new ones caught my eye last week.
Because they both have pom poms. And I love a pom pom.

And there’s THIS cardigan here that’s very similar in shape to my striped one above.
In fact, it might be a little cuter.
It’s a waterfall cardigan, which I love. It used to come in grey, but now it’s sold out.
But I love this color.
This is a great year round cardigan. I would throw it in my purse and take it to restaurants and movies even in the middle of summer!
Here is THE CORAL SCARF again with just my WHITE TEE c/o Everlane, my BIG CIRCLE HOOPS c/o Gorjana and Griffin but now available at Nordstrom HERE!!!!!!, Teagan Open Ring c/o Gorjana and Griffin but now available at Nordstrom HERE, my DISTRESSED SKINNY JEANS, my NUDE FLATS that are ON SALE and are a SUMMER STYLE STAPLE!
a white Michael Kors watch THAT IS 40% OFF!
Now, imagine me wearing some cut off denim shorts or khaki shorts instead of the jeans,
and hello summer!
my BIG CIRCLE HOOPS c/o Gorjana and Griffin but now available at Nordstrom HERE,

and a grey and white striped cardigan (similar HERE)
When you are buying a scarf to be worn during the spring
and summer months, you have to think about a couple of things:
1) You want to make sure it’s thin material and very
light and airy!
2) You want to pay attention to how you tie it.
You typically don’t want it to be too bunchy!
Again, think light and airy!
(Although the girl on the far left in the below collage laughed in the face of my rule #2, and she looked good doing it.)
If you need some more proof that scarves can be worn in the summer, here you go!
Lots of bloggers in the collage showing you how it’s done!
grey tank HERE / white tank HERE / white tee and jeans blog HERE (but doesn’t link to exact post)
coral shorts HERE / green sweater HERE / orange stripes HERE
So, which one do you think I should keep?
All of the above scarves are from LOFT, Anthro, and Nordstrom because I find they have the best selection…and they all have lots of choices right now!
Click HERE for all Anthro scarves.
Click HERE for all LOFT scarves.
Click HERE for Nordstrom scarves.
AND BY THE WAY…I just saw that Anthro is doing one of their FREE SHIPPING for $150 purchase deals…..they only do these once in a blue moon, so if you’ve been eyeing something it’s time to move on it!!!!
Anthro’s shipping is SO ridiculous, so I love it when they do these!
*just fyi: I hate paying shipping so much that I hadn’t pulled the trigger on THIS tunic that I was dying over. HOWEVER. The free shipping code made me get the tunic..AND THIS.
BECAUSE FREE SHIPPING PEOPLE.
Well played Anthro, well played.
Now I have an assignment for you, and it’s going to be fun!
I want you to all leave a comment today saying how many scarves you own!
Maybe you don’t own any. If so, still comment, just write “0”.
Or maybe you own 37?
I want to know how many scarves you girls have!
And don’t just “ball-park” it.
Go to your closet, count your scarves, and then come back here and leave a comment!
(Your hubbies don’t read this blog, so you have nothing to worry about.)
Can’t wait to see what everybody has to say!
Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
