Did anyone watch Chime for Change on Sunday? (What an amazing event!) I was drawn to Jada's shark tooth necklace. Honestly, I haven't given shark's tooth jewelry a thought since leather ankle bracelets from a souvenir shop at any beach sometime around 14 years ago. But I'm digging the grown up necklace versions and covet all of the above. The earrings are pretty rad, too. And you know how I feel about dainty earrings with attitude.
On Saturday I wore this. On Sunday it was forty six. Go figure.
A few years ago in Chicago we had what I dubbed "the summer of no summer" where for nearly three months it was neither warm, nor sunny. Just blah. And it killed me. Growing up in Tennessee summer is always summer, no questions, and no matter where I live the rest of my life, I'll always need it. At the rate it's going my concerns are growing each and every day that we're in for a repeat. Sundresses and street fests and the beach at the end of our street are calling my name, only Mother Nature isn't cooperating...get it together woman!
Alas, we had our first rooftop party and hit up Do Division over the weekend (before it rained) and it felt great to jump into some summer apparel. These scalloped peach suede shorts are a fave so far. (Similar here.) The bun was a "hurry-let's-go" attempt at looking presentable with wet hair, but paired with this, once dry, created some piece-y slight waves that ended up being acceptable. I also spent a few hours with Photoshop on Sunday, something I haven't done in ages, and it felt good to create all my birthday/occasion cards for the month. What else is there to do when it's so ugh outside?
Ok, I'll stop complaining now, Monday's hard enough on it's own. Wishing you all a sunny week!
So we're doing a cleanse again. (Again?, says the husband.) Listen, we've got at least three months ahead full of street fest food, roof top celebrations and dining al fresco - just trying to start summer off right if that's what we want to call it. Since it's salad season, here's an awesome one (quite possibly better on day two?) if you want to follow along. (I skipped the goat cheese and honey for cleanse approval but it was still super yummy.)
Side note: I've been into kale lately. The chips are ok, but I dig it in salad form. Anything with a 1000% of a vitamin in one cup, K in this case, sounds like a winner to me. K for kale, easy enough. This recipe notes to "massage" the greens, doesn't that sound special? :)
