Summer Staples

Anthropologie Tunic (on sale!), DIY Denim Cutoffs, Jack Rogers SandalsRay-Ban Aviators
Starfish Earrings via Lilly Pulitzer on Newbury St. (similar), Essie "Bikini So Teeny" Polish

I picked up this top at Anthropologie a few weeks ago when shopping on Newbury and can't get enough of it.  I paired it with a few of my favorite summer pieces: denim cutoffs, my Jacks, and flashy starfish earrings for a Sunday afternoon cookout.

Striped Tunic

J.Crew Shirt, Necklace & Wedges, Madewell Jeans, Prada Sunglasses

Sometimes I just have those days where jeans and an oversized top are the best I'm going to do. There's nothing better than dressing up in a fab ensemble (especially in the life of a fashion blogger), but being casual is probably one of my favorite things. Just throw on a statement necklace and some lipstick and call it a day!

My Jawbone Tells me I'm Lazy


GapFit Top & Capris, Nike Sneakers (see more), J.Crew Headband, Jawbone 24UP 

Many of you know Ally and I are both fairly active people.  While we may not run marathons, we love going to the gym, zumba classes, barre classes, bootcamps, etc.  I'd been wanting a FitBit or Jawbone for a while now and found myself feeling a little lazy this summer so decided to make the purchase.  I went with a Jawbone and I LOVE it.  It literally does tell me I'm lazy by vibrating after 30 minutes of inactivity (let me tell you, we sit more than we realize).   The average person should move about 10,000 steps per day and sitting at a desk for 8 hours makes that quite difficult.  While I've only had it for a few weeks, I'm now much more conscious of how sedentary I am at a given moment and have made an effort to fix that.  I included a screenshot of yesterday's stats at about 4 pm and I had already reached my goal thanks to an approximate 7,000 step (or 2 ish mile) walk on the beach!

Simple Stripes

J.Crew Shirt (wearing size small) & Shorts (similar), Madewell Sandals, Forever 21 Hat (similar)

So I stole this shirt from my mom last week and have been wearing it as a beach cover up, sleep shirt, and just a casual oversized shirt for some weekend activities (don't worry... it's been washed). It's such a thin, lightweight material that drapes nicely and doesn't cling in this heat we've been having. These shorts are also a work in progress. I am viciously drooling over these destroyed denim shorts, but just can't justify the purchase. So I will be working on destroying these babes as time goes on. Hope you're staying cool!
