Summer Style Me Pretty

Day 3 - Khaki Shorts, Stripped T-Shirt, Statement Necklace, Metallic Sandals
I LOVE the outfit (t-shirt - Old Navy, shorts - Gap) on the left. Not shockingly it was too miserable to wear it. I was disappointed. My classroom is normally UBER hot at the end of June so this would have been the perfect outfit. I ended up pairing the stripped top with my boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) and a sweater (Joe Fresh). I don't have any khaki pants, so I thought the tan sweater kept the spirt of the outfit while allowing me to retain some heat in my cool classroom!

 Day 4 - Tank, Printed Shorts, Metallic Sandals, Fedora
On the left is the outfit I wanted to wear (tank - Old Navy, shorts - Gap, fedora - Gap), but the weather here was miserable, so I wore what's on the right (skirt - Gap, jacket - Bootlegger). I'm still unsure what I think about the fedora. I even tried to wear it this weekend at a friends for practice and barely left it on 15 minutes. I think I will enjoy it reading a book on the beach. . . . It might grow on me. The maxi skirt has. I wore it on Day 4 of my own free accord!

 Day 7 - Bright Tank, Maxi Skirt, Statement Necklace, Metallic Shoes
Once again, the weather was brutal. I didn't even leave the house in this. I love my yellow tank with this skirt, but since I wore it only a few days before I mixed it up with this green t-shirt (Gap). I just got this new statement necklace and I really like it. Not quite as much as THIS one I see everyone in the challenge wearing, but I still like it! I gave it a try with the denim vest (Gap). I haven't taken the tags on the vest yet. Not convinced of it, yet. As with everything else, I'm sure it's bound to grow on me.

Day 5 (LEFT) - Printed Top, Denim Shorts, Metallic Sandals, Statement Earrings, Fedora
Day 8 (RIGHT) - White T-Shirt, Boyfriend Sweater, Denim Shorts, Runners
This is the best I have for a printed top (RW). Most people in the challenge I see wearing nice tribal ones, but I haven't found one I like. I have seen a few I like on the challenge FB page, so there is hope that I will find one! I am wearing the same boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) in both. I bought them for the spring challenge and really have fallen in love with the cut and length. I am also loving my new Chuck Taylors (I just learned that this is the name for this type of Converse shoe! - Thanks, Britt and Luke). I will have to find some of those socks that you can't see, because these hurt my feet when I wore them barefoot. I wore a bit of a greyish shirt with this outfit, but it may have looked better with a white top in retrospect. 

As you can see I skipped a few days and unlike last challenge where I was obsessed with following it to a 't' everyday, this time around I am quite fine going with the flow (which is so not me . . . I'm making progress, people!). Please check out my lovely challenge friends below!


  1. I think it is so funny about how you talk about he jean vest still having it's tags as I just snipped the tags on mine yesterday! It looks great on you, you should do the same!

  2. You look so pretty in everything - I can't pick a favorite. I really like your printed top though.

  3. Stick with the fedora! It looks awesome. Jean vests are not my favourite...but keep it if you like!

  4. you're gorgeous.
    Also, let's trade legs okay? thanks!

  5. The outfit you were fearful of the most is the one I love the best. Let's pack our maxis for our trip

  6. I wasn't as brave with my jean vest, I ended up returning it! Looking great as usual Jordan!

  7. Great printed top!! And those shorts!! Your outfits are great!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
