Thank Goodness....


blazer (J.Crew, Factory Version HERE(, tee (J.Crew, linen version HERE(, jeans (DL1961), belt (J.Crew), chucks (Converse), bag (Michael Kors), bracelets (Stella & Dot, Adele of Lexington), shades (Ray Ban)
To say that I'm thrilled it's Friday would be an immense understatement---had quite the week of traveling on the road for work and I am zonked!  When I tell you the look above is such a love of mine, I'm not fibbing---it's hard to pick up on in the images, but the faint seersucker blazer (collar popped), a baseball tee, some distressed denim, & chucks---oooooohhh boy, she's a keeper!   I feel completely myself wearing rigs like this--pulled together yet ridiculously comfy!  You can shop the look below.
Just a quick note of gratitude.  You all made the Anniversary such an amazing one--your feedback & words of encouragement are so appreciated--I'm going to run the giveaway through Sun night so be sure to enter!  I would be remiss if I didn't mention one integral part of s + s....she brings the blog & my vision to life and this place would be nada if it wasn't for her talents behind the lens---I thank you, KT.  Thank you for your hard work, dedication to me & the blog, tolerating my shenanigans such as nagging deadlines, for airbrushing my crow's feet (my favorite thing about her), for being an amazing mentor & friend, and for saying "Yes," that day in Starbucks when I approached you with this crazy idea.  The gal has seen me in my bday suit, acting a fool, taking too long to change in the freezing cold, and yet--she still meets me  to shoot my mug time and time you kid! Alright gang, enough of the mush---make it a good one!
