Summer weather has finally started to rear it’s head around here.
That means backyard BBQ’ing and outdoor parties will soon become a reality – especially as we make our way toward my four-year-old’s birthday in early June and my own – GASP- 40th in July!
These mini Mason Jar sippers immediately caught my eye and made me long for the lazy days of summer and pink lemonade. I picture a gaggle of sweaty 4-year-olds walking around sipping from cute red and white straws.
But who’s to say that these cute little jars wouldn’t make great high ball glasses filled with hard lemonade for the older set?
You’re probably wondering if I gave up on LBS.com or what. Truth is, I took on a lot of freelance writing work recently and am also winding up the school year with my two boys…
This has meant less time shopping for me and a little less to covet.
But fear not, I do have a long list of covets as I head into the end of this pregnancy. While I’m coveting virtually everything non-maternity, one item I’d love to add to my summer wardrobe is a swim coverup that will “cover” me through the summer.
This Letarte scalloped drawstring cotton tunic is so feminine and so light and so airy, I can imagine wearing it to and from the pool on the hottest of days — now that we are experiencing some 80+ degree weather!
And trust me when I say I’ve got plenty to cover up these days!! (Are we there yet, baby?)
Sorry, bloggy friends, for not doing much fashion these days. My “paying gigs” are keeping me busier than ever.
I did want to re-post a piece I did for Momaha.com today though, because I think it’s incredibly relevant and incredibly important. (Read here) Please take a few minutes to read the blog, and even see what Miss Representation is all about.
Thanks, as always, for reading LBS and I’ll be back soon with some fashion inspiration.
You thought I was going to say bracelets, didn’t you?
At first glance these rings do look like bracelets. But they are actually the miniature version perfectly sized for ring fingers instead.
I adore the turquoise rings with brushed gold stripes and a fun bezel-set rhinestone, of course. These ring sets also come in black, white, orange, mint and peach too. (I can’t wrap my head around these colors again — too high school!)
I hope you took me seriously when I said that this blog was going to be heavy on the shoes and handbags for a while. They are a pregnant girl’s best friends after all.
It’s so nice when you’re as big as a house and it all still fits.
Today, it’s this Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag with a top handle. If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you may have gathered that I have a “thing” for patent leather. And this structured bag is no exception.
This little Gucci bag-that-could isn’t too big, and isn’t too small. It gives me a little bit of a Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-pillbox-hat feeling, but is still a totally modern bag with it’s slight hobo-style silhouette. And you can hike it up on your shoulder while on a spree for more shoes and accessories than one could ever wear during a single pregnancy!
