This summer has flown by so fast…seriously!  Seems like I just celebrated Memorial Day.  Crazy!  I love the cooler San Diego evenings so I borrowed…ahem, justifiably ‘stole’ this sweatshirt from my sister, not realizing I’d use it for an outfit post.  Maybe she’ll enjoy seeing how perfectly it goes with my denim shorts (these ones are a steal!) and my beloved New Balance sneakers.  Sadly, these sneakers are no longer available online but I was able to track down some matching alternatives.

This dress is undoubtedly one of the brightest pieces in my closet and has certainly become a warm weather favorite.  I bought it a couple of years ago on a trip back to Chicago and fell in love with its fun, whimsical print.  Even though this particular dress is no longer available, you can find a very similar style here (25% off using the code ShopNow) that is just as adorable.  Hope you’re having a great Wednesday!

Wow!  It’s been a long while since I’ve done a roundup on links.  I didn’t realize how much I missed sharing drool-worthy home decor, must-reads, and must-buys with all of you!  So hopefully I can interject some extra lightheartedness and fun into your Monday by perusing the following links.  Hope your week is off to a great start!

Learn: The Everygirl has been turning out some really great articles lately. I especially loved this most recent one…‘How to Grow Old with Yourself.’

Wear: You know how much I love sneakers (hello!), so it’s no surprise this Dolce Vita pair caught my eye. How adorable are the blush and flame color?!

Read: Page turner alert! I just started reading ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ and I seriously cannot put it down! I’ve become invested in the quirky and endearing characters and look forward to settling into bed each night just so that I can unravel this crazy story.

Shop: The color of this bag is just as beautiful as the price. Who would guess this is only $40?!

Browse: The surfboards and swimsuits decor is my favorite in this fun lineup of unexpected room accessories.

Prepare for Fall: I’m already thinking fall scents. This one is a longtime favorite!
