Orange Bow Top




I bought this top a couple weeks ago when I ran to the mall on a whim before heading down to Chicago for a family friend's graduation party. Surprised by the incredible sale where I found this top, I had to snatch it and I have been loving it ever since! Not only did I wear it to that graduation party, but I styled this particular look for a dinner out, and I have also worn it under a jacket with flats to my internship.

Weekend Recap


Weekends with no plans are the best weekends, and even more so in the summer. This weekend I wasn't sure what I would be up to, but I ended up doing some of my favorite things and enjoying the beautiful weather we had here in Wisconsin. From a 10 mile bike ride to dinner with friends to Strawberry Fest on Sunday, my weekend was filled with the perfect balance of fun activity and relaxation.

This Week's Top 10


1. These suede lace-up sandals are amazing and currently on sale for under $100!

2. On the blog this week...

Small Space Decor because I'm officially going to University of Wisconsin and living in an apartment with my best friend!
Fourth of July pieces because we are less than two weeks away from the most patriotic day of the year.
My summer reading list because I am really trying to be more productive and read more. I'd love to hear your book recs!

3. Be on the lookout for this cute top that I'll be featuring here next week (just went on sale, too!).

Summer Reading List + Goals



As if I haven't already brought it up enough: I am trying to read more. Because of how crazy my life has been (and probably will be for the entirety of the summer), I am focusing on time-management and trying to get used to "busy" being my new normal. We all have the same amount of hours in the day, and getting everything done that we want to accomplish is truly a work of a time management more than anything else. That said, if I want to read more, then read more I will! I just have to prioritize it.

Summer Whites



I originally had a different post planned for today, but after shooting a few outfits yesterday afternoon with my best friend Elizabeth (aka future roomie at University of Wisconsin!!!) I couldn't resist getting this outfit up as soon as possible. I talked about both this t-shirt and these linen pants in a Top 10 post a few weeks ago, and I just couldn't help myself, I had to have them! Not only are both of these pieces probably the most comfortable things you could ever wear, but the material is amazing on both, and the white is incredibly versatile for summer. I chose to style the pieces together with this amazing oyster necklace from Sea Dipped (not kidding when I say I'm obsessed with Sea Dipped... I think their jewelry is so cool, and each sale saves 10 baby sea turtles!! Omg.) and other simple gold accessories, but I totally plan on knot-tying the t-shirt and pair it with flowy shorts, and even trying the pants with a striped tee.
