While on vacation in Key West with my family, I was on a mission to find a straw purse for the summer months. I've been carrying around a clunky leather purse and wanted one more suitable for the warmer climate. I spotted one at a local shop (Terra Nova, http://shopterranova.com/) and fell in love. However, being on vacation with your entire family (i.e. three kids and husband), there wasn't much time to stroll around and contemplate whether I wanted to take the plunge. And inevitably, we left to go home and I left empty-handed (sad face). A few days later, low and behold an unexpected package arrived for me with you guessed it - the straw purse! My insanely thoughtful mother sent it to me as an early birthday gift. She really spoils me sometimes...well all the time!

Back now from vacation and done with a week-long volunteer gig at my kids' summer camp, I'm hoping to get back to blogging here. But with life as it is in the summer, you never know how each day will end up. In any case, I'm happy to be here now. This outfit is pretty typical of what I've been throwing together most days. A breezy top, lightweight shorts and coordinating accessories. It's really a simple formula for a pulled together look from head to toe.

I was lucky enough to win the InPink Instagram challenge last month and went straight to work deciding on what piece(s) I wanted to get. And recently I've been on a long necklace kick, so when I discovered this golden amber necklace, I was sold. I adore the size, shape and versatility of this piece when worn with this silk and printed shorts combo or dressed up over a shift and heels. Thank you to InPink for this gem!

I can put on these white skinny jeans with anything and everything, and instantly feel put together. The stark white against literally any color, style or fabric adds the perfect amount of contrast for a polished look for day or night. I guess I should go get myself another pair!

Hello Monday! Sorry for the silence here lately. I've been busy the past couple of weeks with family visiting, end-of-school stuff and everyday life. This summer will probably see a slow down, too with all three kids home and vacations away. I do hope you continue to visit though as I've really enjoyed documenting my style here.
On to today's outfit. This colorful and comfortable outfit with simple accessories is all you need for a fun night out with friends or your love. I adore the fit of this blouse and love the bold hue. If you're at Target this week, snag one up. I believe it comes in a neon yellow, too! Have a great week, friends!
