There’s a little nip in the air- actually, it may not even be a nip it’s just not HAWT. This means that my least favorite time of the year is winding down. I had a pumpkin spice bagel yesterday. Fall is coming. But it’s not quite here yet.

Last night, Bubbles & Bloggers had their August meet up at the Embassy Row Hotel with special guests from  StyleMeBar. We try to pick out a theme for our events, and this month is was “come wearing your favorite summer outfit.” Kind of perfect for the last B&B bash of the summer.

My outfit was one that has been on repeat since June. The dress, which I also have in pink, is a style I wasn’t sure would work on me but I LOVE. I can’t do off the shoulder, but a cold shoulder has been my sassy go-to way to wear the trend. I just have to pop on a great Stella & Dot necklace and the softest loafers (an excellent TJ Maxx find) and I have an outfit in 3 easy steps. I’ve also been carrying around this sweet bag from The Kate Spade at Clarksburg Premium Outlets. You might have noticed it in my engagement pictures– but it makes for a great tote while I’m lugging my life around DC.

I find that I really love a statement necklace to jazz up pretty much any outfit that I wear. Since this dress is solid, I usually grab my York Necklace to add some color and texture to it. And it is absolutely zero secret that I adore Stella & Dot. I still need to spend my reward bucks from the online style session I hosted, but I’m glad I waited becauuuuuse Stella & Dot is offering 25% OFF sale items, which means you can save up to 50% on your favorite pieces! This sale is on now and will expire on Wednesday, 9/6.

Annnd just like that it was June. Seriously, this year is going by so quickly. This month, my mom finishes out her final school year, Kendall comes home from training, and we get our engagement photos taken. It’s also Father’s Day and I’m going with my two local bridesmaids to pick out their dresses in person. Like I said on Saturday’s post, I’m not shopping this month. But a girl can still look!

the carolove june wish list

 

  1. I really will end up with this 3/4 Sleeve Tiered Gingham Tent Dress.
  2. Ditto the Checkered Ruffle Sleeve Keyhole Tie Back Smock Dress. For someone who used to hate gingham I love it now!
  3. I seriously love all things Tees And Tank You, but their Covfefe Shirt is cracking me up. I usually don’t try to get too political, but I think this lighthearted design kind of let’s me prove the point that I want to make.
  4. Never one to shy away from a great novelty bag, I’m obsessing over this Milk Box Cross-body Bag…
  5. … and this Tape Shaped Shoulder Bag. Note that both are under $30 because I’m over buying tiny bags for crazy prices. Looking at you Kate Spade!
  6. I know what I just said… but I can’t get over this Kitsch Strawberry Candy Crossbody.
  7. Like, I’m sure, many of you, my first perfume was Love’s Baby Soft Cologne Mist. With my allergies acting a mess, I’m thinking about going for this like scent for the summer!
  8. It’s great that at first glance these Betsey Johnson Boom Sneakers are just plan white sneakers then PEEK-A-BOO!
  9. Wishing I could apply for the job on this Women’s Wildfox Part Time Destructed Tee on LinkedIn.
  10. It’s official- mason jars are out and Light Bulb Novelty Drinking Glasses are in!
  11. I guess I kind of missed the sheet mask craze because the new guy in town is the Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask! This one I have to try.
  12. There’s this one Juicy dress I’ve had since college that I’m about worn into the ground. It’s still in great shape and somehow fits, but I love this Daisy Tile Ruffle Sleeve Dress as an alternative!

We’re all familiar with that one line from Devil Wears Prada:

Yes- florals are all over for spring and yes this isn’t exactly new news, but I can’t help but love a good flower print this time of year. It doesn’t even have to be a print, tbh. Anything flowery to celebrate that small amount of time we get between too cold and too hot is a good thing.

Besides that, it’s be relatively dreary out. April showers are supposed to bring May flowers… but showers it is. And has been for what seems like an eternity. Even this past weekend, DC was treated to mostly showers and cool weather, keeping this salty biotch out of the pool and shopping instead. I guess that’s a sign that it’s time for me to start making my own sunshine, or flowers as the case may be.

Back when I was shooting with Nicole, I lost my SD card with a shoot on it that then never made it to the blog. Somehow, it resurfaced when Kendall and I moved. I hadn’t given it a lot of thought until I lost ANOTHER SD card (those tiny little suckers!), ordered a new one with a mini, then Kendall needed the mini for our GoPro. So I stuck in the SD card I found, complete with my Taylor Swift concert outfit from two summers ago.

So much has changed in the past 2 years- I moved out of my first apartment and into a new one with a boy. I got engaged. My blog has changed and grown immensely. I was witness to some of my best and oldest friends getting married. I’ve made amazing new friends, fallen out of touch with others, acquired more self-confidence than I’ve ever known, and finally feel as settled as I’m going to be as a millennial in kind of a crazy time.

But so many things have also naht changed. I still get panic attacks, but I know how to deal with them and surround myself with people who help me through them, whether they know it or not. I refuse to give up my quirky and somewhat juvenile style, I’ll rock the hell out of my sneaker wedges, and I’m still obsessed with weddings. I still don’t love my job, but I’m going to keep working my ass off and giving it my all (and interviewing elsewhere when something interesting comes up).

Think back over your last two years- what has changed for you? What hasn’t? I’d love to know in the comments!
