Bits for the end of July:
✿ You rarely ever catch me in pastel-y shades but they just seem so appropriate in the heat of the summer. Somehow the cooler colors make the weather seem a wee bit more mellow. Just a wee bit though.
✿ I am looking forward to a weekend of lounging, sleeping in, probably eating too much (as usual), and living in stretchy shorts and t-shirt dresses. Yes, snack and nap-worthy dressing.
✿ Today is day 5 of doing The Shred for me. Twenty minute workouts are awesome. But here's me being all rushy-rusherson - when do you start noticing a difference?
✿ I think I've imbibed too much in the recent round of "% off" sales from our fave retailers (thankfully for my wallet, some stuff is going back). But come on, J. Crew, when are you going to throw in a coupon code for your new arrivals? Mama wants herself some toasty woolens in this 95+ degree heat!
✿ What's on your fall weather to-buy list? I think I "need" some flat grey boots and a bold-hued jacket (like this in blue). And though I'm probably going to end up resembling a stump, I couldn't resist these ankle boots for my first Asos purchase.

There were a couple of questions on what I wore to Kim's virtual blogiversary party, so here it is:
Top: J. Crew gypsy rose (worn here before - similar here, mildly sim but whoa here)
Skirt: J. Crew (similar on sale here)
Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff striped pouch (from set of three)
Shoes: Keds spright (worn here before - similar here, here)
Have a terrific end-of-July weekend, ladies!
