How was everyone’s holiday weekend?
Mine was filled with firsts: my neighborhood’s first-ever block party on Friday with a huge July 4th celebration and amaaazing fireworks (they’ve never had one before in all the 6 years we’ve lived here)…and Lil Tot’s first-ever sleepover at a friend’s house. (He’s only ever had a friend sleep over here before, so it was a huge milestone for my little boy! Can’t believe he’s now EIGHT…I started this blog when he was TWO so it’s been quite a journey. *wipes away tear*)
We decorated our bamboo stalk with paper decorations and wishes for Tanabata (Japanese Star Festival) yesterday, and now the week has begun.
And so has a new series of mine: Chic for the Week. A couple items I’m crushing on this week…
1. In Summer you have to go breezy and easy with your choice of tops. This Choies Crop Top may be a play on words, but is also a chic option.
2. LOVE these bold and chunky Shoe Cult Cross the Line Flatforms. Wear with #3 and you have yourself an outfit!
3. A striped skirt is an essential Summer piece and when the shape is billowy and ballroom it’s so now. This ASOS woven midi skirt looks super-cute with a crop or tank top – can’t wait for mine to arrive so I can rock it out!
4. The Limited Pearl Collar Choker is so minimalist and modern – and totally affordable too. I think this would be an easy and quick DIY once you can source the main metal choker part.
Hope everyone’s having a great start to the week!
Hi Carly, they sure grow up fast. I moved when I was a teenager and our new street had great block parties. I met all the neighbors and got hired to babysit for a few. Sounds like a fun weekend. Pat S
