I can't believe it's August already! Where did the summer go? July has been pretty busy for me, and to be honest I haven't been in the mood to blog at all. But apparently I am in the mood now, so let's catch you up on what I've been doing and what I've been wearing.
I love this striped dress, and it was under $20! I was in need of some (cheap) retail therapy and found this striped dress, not that I need any more striped items.
My sister Sophia's wedding is this Saturday (oh man, only 2 more days left!) but these photos are from her bridal shower earlier this month! My youngest sister came into town for the shower as well, so it was great to have everyone together! I'm wearing a Zara dress from last year, an anthro necklace, and my trusty Aerosoles.
So I really wanted one of those fancy schmancy elastic hair ties, but really didn't want to shell out a lot of money for it. Then I turned to etsy, and the prices there were better but I wasn't satisfied. I actually ended up buying some elastic myself, and making these in the exact colors that I wanted! They are really comfortable to wear, and I love all the different possible color combinations (my favorites are the neons and the minty color).
I must be in a crafty, DIY phase right now, because the same thing happened with customized name/monogram note pads. I have a slight obsession with stationary and fonts, so I knew I had to figure out how to make them myself! So after doing some research and investing in a few little things, I made my own tear off notepads! As someone who loves to make lists and take notes, these are perfect. I can list-make to my heart's content. I'm also a sucker for a good monogram.
I was lucky enough to spend a part of last weekend out in CT to celebrate a friend's birthday! Not only was there creek floating in the rain, but we got to go out on a boat as well. It was so nice to be out of the city and get some face time with the water.
