I would say happy Monday, but I am just not feeling Monday this week. Not like I am ever overjoyed with excitement for Monday, but this week seems especially yucky. The weekend just went by too quickly, and it was a beautiful/relaxing one. This was my Sunday Funday outfit yesterday and I love it, though I have to say it is getting a little too hot for pants. I’m going to have to throw on my white shorts or a white skirt with this one next time.
Next weekend will be a crazy one, since our friend Bryan will be in town from Michigan. We’re planning to have a party in the new backyard and get in lots of sun:) Only 4 more days!
The end of summer is drawing near, so I decided it is time to get my white pant posts in while I can! Although, I have to say, I’m not a strong believer of the no white pants past labor day rule. Especially in Texas, it’s more like a fashion guideline….for those people in the north who actually have fall and winter. Haha!
Pardon the frizzy, awkward mess that it my hair in these photos, it was extremely humid and actually looked like it was going to rain! (It didn’t.) That’s why my hair is actually blowing in some of the photos! What a nice change from the stagnant, hot weather we usually have in August.
I found this peplum top at Target (yes, I realize I have a problem) just before the Texas Style Council at the beginning of August. I wore it to the Lulu’s clothing swap and got a ton of compliments! I like how it is shorter in the front and longer in the back (mullet top!) And we all know how I feel about teal and coral…..
Well, there you go! Now, I need to think of some cute fall ways to style my white skinnies once labor day rolls past!
How would you bring white pants in to fall?

I am the type of person who doesn’t like to be myself. Even if Wes is in the other room working on something and I am watching TV, it’s just nice to have someone there, it feels less lonely. So, when he bought a plane ticket to Michigan to see his friends for 5 days, I was less than excited to spend those 5 days at home, alone.
Luckily for me my parents decided that they needed to see my uncle’s new farm that same weekend! They came down late Friday night and stayed Saturday night after our adventure to the farm and left very early Sunday morning. This left me with Thursday night, most of Friday night, Sunday, and Monday all to myself. The first night, I will admit, I was lonely. Sophie and I cuddled up and watched Harry Potter in bed. Every creaky noise I heard freaked me out and I slept with the TV on all night. I did not like it. Friday and Saturday night my parents were here with me so I didn’t feel so alone. But, by late Sunday night I had kind of settled in to the quiet. I may have even learned a little bit about myself…maybe being alone wasn’t nearly as bad as I had imagined.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am SO glad I have a husband. It’s nice to have someone to come home to after a hard days work and to have someone to cuddle up with to watch a movie. It’s nice to fall asleep beside the one you love…but I did enjoy a little alone time. As much as I thought I hated it, it can actually be a little bit nice. I read, I watched what I wanted to on TV, I went to sleep when I wanted to, I listened to my country music and I listened to it loudly…I got to have a little me time. I even took some blog pictures of myself (see above)….I kind of had the single girl life for a couple of days.
I guess the moral of my story is that being alone can seem scary, but I think that every once in a while it is good for you. I had a chance to really think about things and do things that I like, but don’t always do when there are people there. I felt “free as a bird”, if you will. (See how I tied that in there? That whole bird thing? Like the shirt….(PS: I also wore this shirt here in an entirely different way….)
Well, as free as I might have felt, I am still SO glad Wes came home last night. It’s nice to have another person around…Are you the type who always has to be around someone or do you enjoy your alone time?

Good morning, Ladies!
Its’ starting to get hot down here in Austin, so I’m trying to get some use out of my pants and longer sleeves before it gets too hot to wear them! These white skinnies are my favorite pants right now! A good pair of white skinnies will make everyday shirts that you normally wear with jeans look SO much cuter, and they can REALLY help to expand your wardrobe since they go with practically everything! Today is a chambray and pastels kind of day:)
Shirt: Old Navy
White skinnies: JCPenney
Sunglasses: Charming Charlie
Handbag: Charming Charlie
Necklace: Charming Charlie
Watch and Bracelets: Old Navy and Charming Charlie
Bow ring: Charming Charlie
As you can tell, I have an obsession with Charming Charlie, a HUGE majority of my accessories come from there. If you don’t have one by you, that is a shame…if you do and you haven’t been, that is a CRIME! GO!! Really cute stuff, REALLY affordable prices, it is AMAZING!
Hope you all enjoyed!
