It's August Already

And just like that it's August. And in the SE, the kiddies will all be going back to school soon which is always a bit weird for me, because who goes back to school in the middle of summer? I know, I know, everyone's school year is different. But sorry, guys, I grew up in the NE and we didn't start school until after Labor Day and the year didn't end until late June, so that's just the "right" way to do things in my mind.

Neon Coral and Rhinestone Sandals

These DIY'd wedges have proven to be more versatile than I initially would have imagined. They are awfully sparkly though, so I'm kind of glad I refrained from gluing even more rhinestones to the sandals. I kind of want to bedazzle another pair though, maybe I'll try a more cas pair of flats next time - glam cas!

Red Lips

I love the look of bright red lipstick. For a gal who can't really do makeup, lipstick is about the only thing I can manage and red lips can instantly dress up an outfit (and a face). However I wear red lipstick with caution because I have a tendency to get it schmeared everywhere - on my teeth, my cheek, my hands, my collar, on mugs and cups. So any tips to keeping lipstick where it belong, please let me know!

Pajamas through the Daytime

You gals have patiently listened to me blather on about my move for the past few weeks now and I'm happy to say that I'm settling in nicely. However, new town, new house, means having to find a whole new routine for myself. Like finding the local branch of my bank, figuring out the easiest way to get to the supermarket or locating a neighborhood bakery I like.

And dealing with a whole new work routine too. My company doesn't have a facility where I am now, just a satellite office that I only need to go part-time. So I spend a few days working from home and a few with new co-workers. Which means I technically really only need to get dressed a few days out of each week.

Nice in theory, right? Well, part of the reason I even started my blog way back when was at the time I was working full-time from home. Which meant I spent too many days in sweats or my robe, sometimes walking to the mailbox in the afternoons with my hair still uncombed and wearing the same clothes I slept in. I was sloppy. And style blogging was a way to make sure I got dressed for real each day.

So I find myself kind of afraid of sliding back into that same ole not getting dressed hole. Granted I care a whole lot more about fashion in general now (and have a whooooole loooooott more stuff in my closet), but don't see the purpose of sporting a jumbo rhinestone necklace or point-toed heels just to stay in the house all day. I guess we all better get ready to see a more casual Lisa (at least part-time).

But if you start seeing me sporting PJs through the daytime, tell me to cut it out! Yes, the irony of my typing that line with this particular outfit on is not lost on me.

Lighthouses on my Skirt

I was so freaked out about dropping the ball with the blog during this whole packing/moving/unpacking business that I made sure to be pretty diligent with my outfit pics in the weeks leading up to the big day. So much so, that it's now two weeks after we've moved into our new place and I still have a backlog of outfits from our old house to work through. Some of those outfits I really adored (like this one I am wearing now) so I hope you don't mind me showing off an ensemble a few weeks old. This outfit, features one of my fave old school J.Crew prints - lighthouses!
