Highs And Lows

July 3, 2015

{One last shot of my customized macarons before my works friends and I devoured them.}

Jamie and I arrived in Delaware yesterday to torrential downpour and an intense thunder and lightning storm. Although the both of us were determined to make the best of our 10 hour drive no matter what we decided that the first thing we needed to do was have a long nap. When we woke up from our three hour sleep the rain had stopped, and although the sky was still covered in fog we headed down to the Rehoboth boardwalk and dipped our feet in the ocean, which was long overdue. Our mini vacation couldn’t have gotten off to a better start regardless of the rain and I can’t wait for what the rest of the weekend has in store. Happy fourth of July weekend from Delaware, see you Monday!

Cold Shoulder

July 2, 2015

It’s a rare occasion when I combine multiple seasonal trends into one outfit, but when it comes to this off the shoulder and culotte look I surrender to the trends. This top actually comes as a set but when it arrived I felt it a little too young and revealing for my taste. I can still see myself wearing the shorts with a chambray top or light sweater, but for now this flowy off the shoulder top suits these navy culottes perfectly and makes me want to go salsa dancing with some girlfriends.

Happy Canada Day Strawberry Shortcake

July 1, 2015

1 copy
Happy Canada Day everyone! I was planning on taking a little blogging break today but since this Strawberry Shortcake is just so easy and appropriate for Canada Day I decided that I had to share! My mom always made my sisters and I Strawberry Shortcake growing up so every time I eat it I am transported right back to my childhood. Of course the strawberry shortcake I remember eating was a little bit less elevated than this but because I didn’t make this shortcake from scratch I figured the perfect way to make it a bit more special was to serve it in a jar. It also mimics the Canadian flag, so how could I not? I hope you all have a fantastic Canada Day!
