Happy summer! I’m sharing some of my favorite summer neutral find as a collaboration with Amazon and their growing fashion department. I’m finding these days that I tend to stick to neutrals because they’re: easy to mix and match, easy to grab straight from the closet without much thought, easy to create that ‘I feel pulled together’ sort of look with. I have very little time to plan anything that requires putting thought into an outfit – there’s too much goodness to start the day off with than that sort of stress! Thus for whatever reason grays have always, always been a favorite friend in the color department. Doesn’t the above grey tank feel just ‘easy’? Pair with a simple gold necklace and jean shorts and there we have it. Possibly boring but I’m so cool with that for this summer. Hope that this sunny weather is treating you well!
Amazon has asked me to share a few of my favorite items from their Amazon Fashion site and I’ve fallen back on some tried and true favorites. This spring I’ve been gravitating towards embroidered items and I think the above blouse by Tracy Reese is so pretty. I’m pairing it with a new skinny jean (that I just ordered in an effort to hunt down a really comfy dark denim wash) and clogs. We’ve had some May Grey here in San Diego which has resulted in more sweater-weather than anticipated – but no complaints! I found a patina’d pair of earrings at the farmer’s market recently that I bought as a birthday gift and now I have an eye out for patina everything :). How pretty is that turquoise? They are by Etsy shop TheresaRose. Here’s to closing out a busy May, and welcome June!
It’s all about the little things in life :), am I right?
The other day the girls and I packed a picnic brunch for meeting up with Kevin at one of his food trucks (they’re always at some pretty fun events so we try and tag along when we can). We made scones and then went on a little garden snipping spree and added lavender into room temperature butter to bring with. The herbs chopped up most finely were the tastiest (plus a few larger chunks for show). Mixed with cranberry scones, the whole little snack was delicious.
Really kinda fun, unusual and pretty. I’m on a roll now… for more infused/mixed butter ideas, I’m thinking pecans + maple syrup + butter for waffles, rosemary + blue cheese + butter for steak, lemon + lavender + butter for dutch pancakes, goat cheese + chives + butter on bread. Can be made in advance, not completely revolutionary, but easy and delicious… mmmmmm that’s what I’m talking about.
