Holy cow it is almost July!  I seriously can't believe it.  This year has flown by and it still hasn't hit me that is really summer because I can still wear long sleeved shirts like this outside.  

And if you didn't know on July 1 Google Reader is going away! Sad I know, but it is a great time to switch over to Bloglovin (the little + sign at the top right of the page!) They can automatically transfer over your Google Reader so you can keep track of all your lovely daily  blog reads.  You can also find me on Google+.  Whichever you prefer. So make sure you make the switch before it's too late!

And have a happy last weekend of June :)

I lived in the dress and heels this past weekend.  I am all about comfort and practicality and surprisingly these wedges fit that bill.  Add this awesome scalloped edged shift dress and it equaled the perfect outfit for a cookout, walk in the park, AND a night out on the town.  Talk about versatile!

A fun colorful/printed skirt + a comfy graphic tee + patterned flats = my summer look. 

 With the amounts of shoes I've added to my collection recently, I find myself grabbing for these guys almost every day. I just love the unexpected pattern and how it can really just add a fun element to any outfit I throw on.

Side note: So, I am kind of excited about this tropical storm Andrea (well my name is pronounced ON-DRE-YUH but this storm is as close as I think I will ever get).  Ever since I was little I strangely would look out for the storm lists and see when my name(or similar name) was coming up but typically A names aren't large enough storms for news coverage, but this year it's a storm that's hitting the East Coast as we speak.  But I will be having a little Tropical Storm Andrea celebration this weekend, because you know, when will I be a storm again?!

Like I said in my last post, I went to visit my sister for Memorial Day Weekend.  On Sunday afternoon I threw on my red, white & blue to stroll around this cute downtown area with my sister.  The weather was perfect and it was a really great day.  My sister also enjoyed taking reign over using my dslr.  I think for never really working with one before, she did a great job.  More snaps of the day below.
