Hip hip hooray for Thursday! Today is my Friday at work because I am off on a roadtrip to Austin tomorrow with a few girl friends. So fun!

So today I will keep it short and sweet. Have a happy weekend!

P.S. If you are looking for something to do this weekend, I HIGHLY recommend seeing this movie or this one. Both are stellar. Summer movies are the best.

happy birthday pops!

Happy 50th birthday to my dad! Hip hip hooray! My dad and I have always had an odd dynamic. I am heady and emotional and he is stoic and sure. But as I get older I am respecting and cherishing our relationship more and more. He is full of wisdom and sound advice and can be quite hilarious. He has always taken care of all his girls and probably spoiled us rotten. I love that crazy dad of mine!

Happy birthday old man!

skirting around

I am loving these skirt looks from my most favorite of favorites, JCrew. It is nearly impossible to want to put on pants in the Texas summer heat. I think any of these would keep me stylishly cool at work. Divine.

Dulce Sequin Skirt, $450.

Vintage Cord Pencil Skirt, $59.50.

Burnished Linen Skirt, $49.99 (on sale).

P.S. This is my 200th post. Holy cow!

This picture just about sums up my weekend in the Texas hill country. Hilarious.

offbeat beauty

How gorgeous is this vintage 70s lace dress? I think it would be awesome for an offbeat, indie type wedding. Don't you?

Just add this cheeky little hat and dazzling bag, and you are all set.

i love july the fourth

This weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. I love sparklers. I love laying by the pool all day. I love fireworks. I love hot dogs and seven layer dip and cider in the bottle. I love parades and parties. I love friends and family all around. I love the official start to summer.

This weekend we are off to the Texas hill country to do a little wine tasting, a little antiquing, a little fishing, a little eating, a little fireworks watching, a little sparkler burning.

I love July the fourth. I hope you have an oh so very Happy 4th of July!

please remember me fondly

It is overwhelming how much I am loving this song right now. It's just so good. I love songs like this that you can get all wrapped up in.
