Crisp Summer Button Ups

July 22, 2015


I’ve featured Frank and Eileen in the past but, while scouring their new arrivals, I knew that a second post was in order!  It’s safe to say that I want Every. Thing. on their site, but I’ll try to get a grip and share only my current favorites.  First off is this hot pink poplin button up that I envision wearing with white jeans and tan strappy sandals.  And then I would pair this palm tree checker print blouse with a denim skirt and slip on sneakers.  I mean, that print is so whimsical and warm weather perfect! I also love the dark blue/white piping contrast of this linen beauty. It’d be perfect alone or over a white tank. Or even better…a swimsuit cover up!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!  I’ve been enjoying mine so much that I…well, I got behind on Dressed and Fed! Most of my weekends have been spent outdoors relaxing with friends and family.  To me it doesn’t feel like summer is slowly winding down, but rather, just revving up!  Here’s to an endless summer.

Weekend Wear

June 26, 2015


One: Sweatshirt  /  Shorts  /  Bag  /  Sneakers  /  Sunglasses

Two: Bag  /  Hat  / Tank  /  Sandals  /  Sunglasses  /  Skirt

Three: Dress  /  Heels  /  Clutch  /  Earrings  /  Necklace

 The temps here in San Diego have just begun to climb, putting me in full-on summer mode!  I’ve added a few new pieces to my wardrobe this season, but have also taken a serious look at my closet to see what I can mix and match. A new sweatshirt wasn’t on my list of ‘must haves,’ however this one is pretty freakin’ cute, right?! I love a laid-back look made ultra-comfortable with a pair of Converse sneakers. One item I’m seriously eyeing is this long, budget-friendly skirt. Old Navy has put out some great pieces this season and I always stock up on their super-soft vintage tees and workout basics. Of course, their skirts and dresses are not to be overlooked! And where do I start with those heels in look three?! I love the versatile color and it’s a reasonable price point for a high-heeled strappy sandal.

San Diego Father’s Day Restaurants with Open Table

June 17, 2015

Lots to celebrate this weekend! Not only is it Father’s Day but it’s my niece’s birthday. A special dinner is certainly in order! I’ve used Open Table for years to make my reservations and this weekend will be no exception. Generally I make reservations by visiting the restaurant’s website and then clicking on their open table reservation button, but did you know that Open Table’s site has specific search features? You can browse restaurants by neighborhood, specific dietary needs, and occasion! These are my top San Diego restaurants, which are sure to spoil dad!
