I mentioned a few posts ago that my husband and I recently headed to San Antonio for a weekend out of town. The reason for the trip was his wedding gift to me – a re-creation of our first date. We took the drive west to see a certain pop punk band that used to play pretty regularly in his old Astro van… Motion City Soundtrack. We had so much fun! I’m pretty sure we were part of a small percentage of attendees that were over the age of 17, but I was really impressed with the band. They’ve been around for years and I have to say, they’ve still got it.

I felt this baseball tee was pretty perfect for the occasion. Effortless yet put together with just a touch of edge (at least I like to think so, edgy is subjective… but come on, I have a skull on my shirt and spikes around my neck, right?). One of Kyle’s best friend’s who now lives in Milwaukee got us these shirts as part of our wedding gift. When I opened it I just laughed thinking I would just use it as a “day around the house” top, but I have admittedly found several ways to work it into my everyday wardrobe and it has quickly become one of my favorite shirts. With skinny jeans and heels, with a pencil skirt, with a structured blazer – simple printed tees can add the perfect laid back element to your style.

We decided to skip the hustle and bustle of the river walk this trip and stuck to the historical district of San Antonio, which I am super happy about. The river walk is a bit overwhelming and not really our thing. But we really enjoyed this part of the city. Gorgeous old homes, delicious neighborhood bars and coffee shops, and a much more green part of the river complete with kayakers on a brisk morning. The next time you are in San Antonio make sure to stop by Madhatters Tea House & Cafe – phenomenal food!




HAPPY FRIDAYYYYY! Anyone else going to see Catching Fire this weekend? It was my favorite of the Hunger Games books, so I’m pretty excited!




Leather Frills

Like the boyfriend jeans from my previous post, an A-line, frilly leather skirt is something I’ve been on the search for some time now. When I found this faux one at the Nordstrom semi-annual sale I knew it was time to give in. I love where it sits on my waist… just high enough to give me a flattering waistline, but not too high that I feel like I’m showing too much leg. I also love how the flirty shape gives an otherwise feminine twist to the edgy leather material.

Hope you have a fabulous hump day and rest of your week.



Chic Boyfriend

DSC_0615.jpgI’ve been looking for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans for almost 2 years now, but I haven’t been able to find a pair within my price range that I actually really like… until now. On sale at less that 40 bucks (now back to only $59), I just couldn’t pass up the chance to try out these.

DSC_0593.jpgI’m in love with their versatility. I wear them out to run errands with a plain tee and my favorite sneakers or flip flops, or better yet I can dress them up with a pair of heels, a peplum top and a blazer. I love when two contradicting silhouettes fit together like they were made for each other. It’s the perfect combination of comfortable and chic!

DSC_0590.jpgI’m extremely excited this weekend to go to La Push, WA and camp on the beach, drink good beer and relax with my best friends. It’s already the end of July and I’m ready to soak up every last ounce of summer!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend. It feels great to be posting again 🙂
