Shades of Blue

DSC_0032DSC_0024

Being a big fan of just about any shade of blue, I just had to have this super cute Escapada top. Besides the gorgeous blue colors, this top also has a fun tassel fringe bottom. I also love how well it paired with these white Target chino shorts, that I’ve been practically living in lately, and these Charming Charlie tassel earrings for a fun Fourth of July outfit. 

What are some fun pieces that y’all are loving lately?

P.S. I apologize for being absent from Short Sweet and Lovely for the past few weeks–things have just been a bit crazy for me as of late!

I don’t know about y’all but I am loving the off the shoulder trend.

These earrings are not only gorgeous but also help fight against trafficking.

I’m always one to love a good classic print and this gingham dress is no exception.

One Down, Three to Go

 

I can’t believe a quarter of the year has already passed by! Growing up, I always had older people tell me: “oh just you wait until you’re older…time will start flying by!” I honestly never believed them when they would say that, and yet, here I am, wondering where the time went.

2017 has already treated me so well, though, that I won’t complain about how fast it seems to be going by. I was able to take a trip to Seattle and back to my second home of Oregon, spend time exploring new places in my area, and change up my casual wardrobe to represent a more post-grad life ( Side note: This has also resulted in a few more people now asking which college I recently graduated from instead of asking which high school. #shortpeopleproblems? haha).

Hope 2017 has been good to y’all as well!

Life Lately via IG

 

  1. Had lunch at the Mason Jar, a restaurant that I’ve been going to since I’ve been in diapers, and I unfortunately found out that the land has been sold. If you’re in the Houston area from now until December–please check out this place!
  2. Made the first loaf of pumpkin bread for this fall season of the year. As you can see, it’s a heavily used recipe.
  3. Checked out the pumpkins and gourds at Trader Joe’s but managed only to buy some Pumpkin Spice Apple Cider (so yummy!).
  4. Saw a Theatre Under the Stars production of In The Heights, and it was such a phenomenal performance! (Wearing: LOFT dress, Target belt, J Crew Bucket Bag & Target sandals)
  5. A beautiful tapestry done by Leonardo Nierman titled “Rhapsody 2004”.
  6. The playbill and set of In The Heights.
  7. The stunning gold ceiling of the Hobby Center, which prompted me to want to start singing the Black Keys’ “Gold On The Ceiling”.

Like many cities in New Mexico, Las Cruces is home to some very artistic residents. Whether you’re driving up and down the main drag (Lohman Ave.) or walking around downtown, you’ll generally stumble upon mural after mural after mural.

The city is especially known for its Water Tank Murals, which are painted by Anthony Pennock (and family).
