This Print on Repeat

So, in case you wanted an update on how I am doing with my summer to-do list, I have tried a few new restaurants. For example, I tried a new Thai place that is just on the other side of this white wall I am standing in front of. (Quite frankly, it's been way too hot here to do much more than that!) My husband and I tend to go to the same dozen or so restaurants over and over again, which is why it's fun to try out new places. Plus, now that I am on summer vacation, we can reap the benefits of the weekday lunch specials that aren't often offered on weekends! I know this makes me sound really cheap, which in many ways I am, but whatever I save I can spend on new handbags, shoes, and clothing!

Like restaurants, I find that my wardrobe also tends to get into ruts as well, especially around summertime when the excessive heat means prioritizing function and comfort over style. I am also prone to gravitating to similar prints over and over again, like this floral one from J. Crew. I wore it on my blog last month when I bought it as a new arrival. Now that it is on sale, I am sort of bummed that I didn't wait longer for it, but I have been able to get a fair amount of use out of it in the meantime. I am actually contemplating buying the dress version of the print now that it's on sale. In fact, it's in my shopping cart as I am writing this!

  3. The print of your skirt... LOVE! The colors are great, and it's perfect with the pink checked shirt too. I love to try new restaurants, but we also tend to get stuck in a rut of eating at the same handful, so it's always fun to branch out!

  4. Lunch specials are great!

    I LOVE the print of your skirt! I vote for getting the dress! :-)

  8. YASSSS I love the print on print look! I totally know what you mean, I live in a huge city and I just go to the same 6 restaurants over and over again! But there is something nice about going somewhere you know you like right?


  9. Wow!! The print of the skirt is so amazing, bright and fun. I absolutely love it paired with the pink gingham. Great combo. Have a great weekend.

  10. I just put the dress on my wishlist. I'm thinking it would be an amazing first day of school outfit!

  11. That skirt! Such an amazing print! Love this outfit.


  12. I love taking advantage of specials by restaurants, this way you can try it out and see if it's worth going back. I have the dress version and bought it full price as well. I am tempted to get the skirt :)

    Thank you for being a part of TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you soon!


  13. Honestly, I'd be wearing that gorgeous skirt all summer. I'm talking everyday! But with a closet full of gorgeous florals, you have a lot more choices hahaha. I get into ruts as well and I love your thoughts on saving money, we feel the same in that aspect. Money saved = new makeup! XO -Kim
