True Life Addiction: Coffee and Tee Shirts

If you know me, then you know I can’t live without Starbucks. Conveniently for me, my boyfriend is my barista, but I also like to show my love for coffee in other ways.

This tee from the Pretty Print Shop is so sweet and perfect!

I got it on pre order, but I think they are re stocking soon, and they also have some amazing fall surprises in the works. Follow them on Instagram for updates (and to see my photo!)!!

They also make shirts for kids and babies, so if you want to match your mini me, this is the place for you!

Fourth of July Planning

I am so pumped for the Fourth! Jack and I will be making tri-colored margaritas for his family, and I got some amazing headbands from Shop Bracket!

These are just three of the five designs that came in the pack!

Here’s a subtle red, white, and blue outfit if you don’t feel like going all out. I’ll be keeping my actual outfit a surprise until the day of!

The boyfriend was not happy about having glitter blown at him, but he managed to pull through.

I also did some experimenting for my holiday mani!

From pinky to thumb, the colors are Essie Butler Please, Julep Ivy, Essie Double Breasted Jacket, Essie Butler Please with Summit of Style, and Essie Double Breasted Jacket. I started and finished with the all in one base and top coat from Essie.

What are your plans for the 4th?

Sparkle and Shine

One of my favorite gifts was a sweater and shirt combo that my mom put together from J. Crew!

The J. Crew Long Sleeve Tee has a metallic gold leather collar and a quarter exposed zipper in the back. It was just the right neutral to pair with this gorgeous J. Crew Belted Cardigan. In the above picture the belt is tied behind my back. I paired this with my Kendra Scott Rose Gold Elle Earrings and my new Kate Spade Cedar Street Ombre Nisha Wallet. I fishtail braided my hair to make this look a little more trendy!

I was very happy with this look and wore it to have dinner with my boyfriend’s family. Even he complimented me twice!

Mixing Matches

One thing I love to do with my outfits is to mix patterns that still go together. The trick is to pick a dominant pattern, like a bold stripe or floral, and pair it with a subtle print that compliments it. Here’s my take on it!

What I’m Wearing

This is one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer skirts that I got at their Endless Summer Sale a couple years ago. It is so colorful and goes with anything!

The shirt is from J. Crew and my watch is from Kate Spade

Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

My boyfriend and I made strawberry lemonade! I found a really great recipe on How Sweet It Is through the site Yummly.

You need:

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup water

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

1/3 cup mint leaves

Directions:

Combine the sugar and water in a small sauce pan to make a simple syrup. Whisk the mixture until the sugar dissolves and bring it to a boil. Once it starts to boil, remove from heat and place in the fridge for ten minutes.

Puree the mint and strawberries. Then add the lemon juice and simple syrup, pureeing again.

We strained our lemonade once to remove some pulp, but we could have strained it again in our opinion.

As a garnish we added some sliced strawberries, lemon slices, and a mint leaf!
