It's Friday my friends....our last Friday on vacation! Next week I am sure I will be counting down the seconds until Friday rolls around and Chris will be off work again. But that is neither here nor there because as you are reading this I am on my way to my most favorite place in all the land....Homer!!! We have gone there every summer since we moved here and it is what I look forward to all year! The beauty, the food, the beach, the food. You can read all about our adventures last summer here, here, and oh, here.

But if you would rather skip all that...and I can't blame you, here are some better reads. Are you reading Stephanie's blog? You should be.

This post! Kate just gets it right every.single.time. 

I love this post on how to decorate when you're renting a house. Chris and I have both said we will never buy a house until we are done with the military life. I do not have the mental sanity to deal with selling a house....I'll give my thirty day notice all day everyday over that biz-naz!

The lipstick junky in me saw this post and immediately made a list of things to buy!

Shall we get into Father's Day? How in the hell are we already at Father's Day? Didn't we just take down Christmas decorations? I swear. Anyway, I tried to reverse psychology Chris into thinking the Apple watch he gifted himself is his present. But realistically the kids will be giving him more. The man loves ties more than he loves me, so this set is perfect! I turned Chris into a little bit of a sneaker head, so now I feel it is my responsibility to keep his collection going. I love these woven ones that he can wear everyday, or dress up with some dark denim and a blazer! The kids are all going to make a little card for him as well....you know, once we get around to that!

I am sure everyone and their mom has seen or heard about the whole capsule wardrobe phenomenon. I would like to think that I am one of those people that could totally scale down my closet and live in a more simple wardrobe. But, I don't want to lie to myself. Instead I am really trying to buy pieces that I can mix into my closet with very little effort. Pieces that have endless options. I am always buying that one piece to complete an outfit in my head, but never really thinking....what else will this go with? So I'm going to give this a try, re-wearing and remixing, what a concept right? This denim top is on it's way to my house, and I am thinking this swing sweater will be the perfect year around sweater for Alaska. I need another pair of sneakers like a need a hole in the head....but I am thinking I neeeed a pair of stan smiths, you know just to round things out. (ridiculous...I know...I need help).

What are you loving? What are you reading? Give me the goods folks!

  3. Where do you find blazers for your husband?! I can't find any that don't look extremely ethnic and if you met my husband that just is NOT his personality lol. Have fun on vacation!

  4. I think I could do the capsule wardrobe, for sure! I honestly just wear the same stuff over and over again anyways. I have stuff I haven't worn in YEARS but keep it thinking I will again one day!

  5. The capsule thing is interesting to me but I could never do it. As soon as I donate something I want it back. No joke. Enjoy your vacation!!
