stuck in my day dreams: vol. 2

Happy Friday, friends! 

This week was kind of a rollercoaster for me with the end of my Summer semester and then some personal happenings on top of that. Needless to say, I'm welcoming the weekend with friends in Philly and down at the shore. This coming week I've got a little break from school where I plan to relax, read some books and work on blog posts for you all! ! Here is some of what I've been loving lately. 

  • I saw Lauren Instagram a picture of these muffins this week and immediately knew I needed to try them out - I can't wait to make some! 
  • Everyone is talking about Fall clothes, but Julia's post about Summer Comfort and easy Linen Pieces for Summer has me wanting Summer to last a little longer... 
  • I wrote a pretty big post that went live on Monday about how to style on a student budget... did you read it? Let me know your thoughts :) 
  • One of my favorite sites to swoon over style and lifestyle wise is Tuckernuck. They just released their August Lifestyle Guide that has got some serious end of Summer, early Fall inspo. I mean come on?! Talk about being stuck in my daydreams.
  • Like everyone else, I'm antsy to switch my wardrobe over to Fall - I've got my eye on this perfect sweater and I need to replace my most worn booties of the season. 

What are you up to this weekend?

the perfect match: a denim skirt for a Summer evening

Last weekend we met up with some of our favorite friends at Spruce Street Harbor Park along the Delaware River in Philly. We drank wine [while the boys drank beer] while admiring the cute little sailboats in the harbor. My favorite part, aside from the people and views, was the ice cream from the SS Franklin Fountain food truck! We stood in kind of ridiculously long line and definitely paid too much for ice cream, but as a self-proclaimed ice cream connoisseur, I'd say it's the best I've had in Philly! And they give it to you in a Chinese takeout container - how cute!? 

What I wore: Since we're just getting to know each other here, you should know, when getting dressed, above all, I choose comfort! One thing I stand by: you can never go wrong with denim and a t-shirt. I am a sucker for sun washed denim and white together in the Summer and this was no exception. I chose neutral colored accessories to let the flutter sleeves on the tee and raw hem on the denim steal the show. Details below :)

Arnold Palmers in Houston

We took a trip out to Houston, TX a few weeks ago to visit family. Our favorite spot was eating fresh baked cookies & drinking iced Arnold Palmers at a sweet little place in Houston called Tiny Boxwoods. This breezy outfit was perfect for walking around the city and staying cool (I'm all about comfy over here) and these pieces are still ones I turn to as the summer heats up. Scroll down for outfit details :)
