Skinny Legs

Outfit Details – Top: Goodnight Macaroon | Pants: Express {old} | Earrings: David Yurman
Watch: Vince Camuto | Bracelet: Mindy Mae's Market, Target | Wedges: Target {old}

Wait a second, you probably remember my past post about my not-so skinny legs. However, this post entitled "Skinny Legs" is more about the pink feathered friends on my adorable top. I knew when I saw this on Goodnight Macaroon's Instagram account that I had to order it the moment it became available. Pink flamingos and bows? Count this girl in! I decided to pair it with black skinny jeans and simple accessories since the top itself has so many things going on from the bold print to the bow neck tie.

While everyone around me knows I have a love for animals, I may or may not have gone a little over the top with my love for flamingos with this look–enter flamingo phone case, bracelet and top. Ha! What can I say, fashion makes me a little birdbrained {pun totally intended}.

Hi ya'll, Kacie here! I know, you're probably like, "Say what? That's Jaime in those pictures"! That's true, but nonetheless, I will be your narrator for this post. If you know Jaime you probably know that she is the happiest, bubbliest, most smiley person in the world–even at 6:00am when I want to punch someone in the face. When we were at Nordstrom a few weeks ago, I forced this top on her because well, it fits her to a tee (er, tank?). Of course, she styled it impeccably and looks just adorable, doesn't she? All kidding aside, Jaime is the sweetest human being I have encountered in my entire life and I truly believe that her morning Luna bars are laced with some sort of sparkle!

Hippie Dippie

Kimono: Jane | Crop Top: Forever 21 | Shorts: Forever 21 (old) | Necklace: Forever 21 (old) Headband: Forever 21 (old) | Bracelet: Alisa Michelle | Sandals: Michael Kors | Bag: Target

This past weekend, Jarrod and I headed south to Louisville for a little weekend getaway and we had an absolute blast! We haven't been able to spend that much time together lately so it was fun to get away to celebrate his birthday and a late, late, late four year wedding anniversary.

I threw on this boho-inspired outfit after dinner as we headed out to 4th Street Live for drinks. I think Jarrod wasn't too sure about this look, but as he so lovingly told me when I asked if he thought I looked weird, "I don't think you look weird. You would know more about it than I would." True dat, my friend! I'll be posting a bunch of our fun photos in the coming days so stay tuned!

I'm So Fancy, You Already Know...

 Top: L Mae Boutique Skirt: Charlotte Russe Shoes: Madden Girl (old) Clutch: Lulu (loving this)

bon ton noun \ bän-ˈtän

1 : fashionable manner or style; high society

2 : something regarded has fashionable correct

I was recently introduced to L Mae Boutique by a fellow style blogger and when I came across this bon ton top in their collection, I had to have it! I started getting into the Peter Pan collar trend last fall (see here) and was super excited to be able to work one into my summer style - plus, it has a bow so it was automatically perfect. I knew right away that a classic midi skirt and a top knot would be perfect companions to this 'high society' top and the polka dot bow clutch tied it all together. Fancy, huh?

Not to mention that when my top came it was adorably packaged with a handwritten note (you can see it here on my Instagram), it was so sweet! As an added bonus, L Mae Boutique is currently having a 40% off sale through tomorrow night (7/16) when you use the discount code FINAL40!

Lake Lovin'

During this past 4th of July weekend Jarrod and I had the opportunity to spend a day at his cousin's lake house for his grandmother's birthday celebration (Happy 84th, Frannie!). Upon arriving at the cottage we immediately fell in love with the serenity of the lake - it was so gorgeous there! Despite being together for over a decade, that day I had the opportunity to meet many of his family members that I had never encountered before. I spent the day in the sun, snacking on fruit (and birthday cupcakes!), and listening to family stories. I snapped a few shots throughout the day and have shared them below!
Looking out onto Lake Cordry
I couldn't believe how clear the water was!
This is Lulu, she's a 10 week old Goldendoodle. She was too cute!

My lake attire was super casual as I planned to be basking in the sun in my swimsuit most of the day. My look consisted of this adorable lobster crop top (it's now only $5!), denim cutoffs, colorful Reef sandals, a crossbody bag, and fun accessories. It was a perfect summer day that I won't soon forget!

Boom, Clap the Sound in my Heart

In my book, July has three very important dates–Independence Day, my sister's birthday and my birthday. The month starts out with a bang each year as I spend the 4th of July holiday with my family for a little sun, fun and of course fireworks on Lake Tippecanoe. My mom sister and I suddenly turn into little kids and sit atop the hill at the country club, eagerly awaiting the time for fireworks to start. You'll find us oohing and ahhing at every firework shot off, swearing that that firework was better than the last. Totally silly, but I love it none the less! Thankfully this year's holiday fell on a Friday, so I was able to have the full day off to enjoy a long weekend with two of my favorite people. Check out my pictures from this past holiday weekend: (P.S. - a big thanks to my sister for getting the Charlie XCX song "Boom Clap" stuck in my head. It's officially become my weekend theme song.)

My sister & I! 
 ...and now for the grand finale!

The last picture was totally blurry, but I'm kinda in love with it. The finale was pretty spectacular and literally took over the sky. Hopefully each of you had a great holiday weekend!
