This outfit was all about staying cool. I took Stella out after my morning workout and could not believe how hot is was outside already that early in the morning! I knew I needed something to beat the heat and stay cool and that is exactly why I picked this dress that day. For those of you who are new here, my pup (or assistant I like to call her during a workday) tags along with me to work some days so during lunches we have a little play session outside.
dress: old navy (few sizes available online but fully stocked in my local store) // sandals: tory burch // earring studs: kate spade neon stud (similar color green) // necklace: kate spade "mrs"
I was out of the office one day last week for a meeting and some other things and wanted a dress that was nice but also flowy so I was comfortable for the day. This one had come in the mail just the day before and I fell in love - I love the combo of the bright colors and black as well as the casual style of the dress.
Wednesday and my favorite night of the week (during summers only). Out on State Street for Dining Under the Stars with my grandma. This week we went to a little french place and the rain held off but it was a little bit of a cooler night - which is always nice when you're dining outside. On this day I posted tips for being an on time wife and then was late to leave!

Friday blooms from the grocery store - I was loving this color which is a little different than I would usually pick.
Also at the grocery store I did a little gathering for a donations event our church is doing with the local food drive for Fourth of July. A theme and a good cause?! Yes!
Date night for the week. I had some returns to do at the mall so we picked Maggiano's which was close by and to our surprise they had dining outside so we were sold for a late dinner.
Enjoying a martini and being outside while waiting for one of my favorite meals with my favorite person was a successful night in my book. We ended up being the only ones on the patio which happened later that weekend for lunch - nothing like an empty patio all to yourselves.

The princess of the house got a new bed which is way too big for her but that was the plan and the plan worked because she loves it. She also hides under it and tries to get the stuffing out of the inside.
After a day on the golf course, I was ready to be comfortably cute and relax at my parents' house for one of our Father's Day BBQ's.
*I can't say enough good things about these shorts - I got them Friday, wore them twice this weekend and then ordered them in lavender and blue (only $9 right now!)*
Of course I couldn't skip National Wear Your Lilly Day on Sunday so for some errands and a lunch date this dress was just right. I read Lauren Scruggs first book and am obsessed with her (as well as her and her hubby) so I am just starting in on her new one.
