Wishlist Wednesday: Pouches

Ask anyone who knows me well and they'll tell you that I LOVE pouches. At any given time, you are sure to find at least a few inside my purse and if I'm traveling you're sure to find even more. I love organizing all my random knick-knacks in pouches so they don't end up swimming around in the bottoms of my purses. Here are a few fun ones that I've been eyeing lately! (Some of them can even be used as clutches -another reason why pouches are the best).

According to my phone...

Happy Friday! I'm off to Cape Cod for a girl's weekend with some friends! Hopefully the  rain will subside soon, but then again it could give us an excuse to stay in and have a slumber party. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Pink & Gray

I decided to dress down this dainty, pink, lace skirt with a slouchy gray tee (that is by the way unbelievably soft) and I'm loving the juxtaposition.

Wishlist Wednesday: Phone Cases

Phone cases are the new accessory of our generation. They provide yet another outlet to express your inner fashionista or at the very least they can serve as a nice conversation-starter. I've rounded up some of my current favorite eye-catching ones for you here! Now I just need to decide which one I want...

The only hairstyles I've been living in this past week are either a high ponytail, french braid, or a topknot like the one I'm wearing here. Any style that will keep my thick hair away from my face and back! The heat wave really hit us hard last week and the only way to survive walks outside was in outfits much like this one! I've had this dress for a while and I've rediscovered how perfect it is for hot, humid weather with its breathable fabric and flowy silhouette. Plus the hi-lo hemline and cutouts add just the right dose of fun. 

Happy Monday! Hope you have a great week!

Wishlist Wednesday: Summertime Blues

Lately I've been gravitating toward blues. Perhaps it's because of some wishful hope that some cool blues will help me fight off this hot & humid heat.

Flowy Florals

This top is definitely a new summer favorite of mine! The combination of its fun florals and flowy silhouette are perfect. Plus, it also works great as a beach coverup you can just throw on over your swimsuit! 

Hope you guys had a lovely 4th of July weekend! I'll post a weekend update with some pictures soon. In the meantime, Happy Monday & here's to a great week for us all!
