Summer song

IMG_4040Last night I had the chance to see American Authors, The Script and OneRepublic on tour here in Omaha. The show was amazing, and the guys in OneRepublic are crazy talented beyond belief. If they’re coming to your city on this tour, you really should try to purchase some tickets.

It got me thinking about a summer playlist and what I’ve been listening to a lot over the summer. My musical tastes tend to range from classical to electronic (but you’ll never catch me listening to country music). Lately I’ve been obsessively listening to the music from the era of the Masterpiece show Call the Midwife. Such good 50s and 60s throwback songs! Here’s the playlist I’ve had on repeat:


Straightforward Straightforward Straightforward Straightforward

Button-Up: Banana Republic | Denim: Old Navy | Espadrilles: Denim & Supply | Bag: Pour la Victoire | Watch: American Eagle | Bracelets: Forever 21, Banana Republic | Sunglasses: American Eagle | Lips: Revlon’s Blasé Apricot | Nails: Deborah Lippman’s She Bop and Happy Birthday 

When it comes to dressing in a snap, I keep things straightforward and simple. For instance, yesterday the carpet-cleaning guy stopped by my apartment while I was still in my pajamas (oh, the perils of working from home), so I threw this outfit on before heading out the door to work at a coffee shop for the afternoon. I haven’t worn my chambray blouse for quite awhile, so I paired it with the first pants I could grab out of my closet and the easiest shoes I could slip on. 

The best eyeliners


The first time I got to wear eyeliner was in 7th grade; I’m fairly certain my first attempt made me look like a bit of a raccoon. Since then, I’ve perfected the best line for my eyes, and no matter what my makeup routine looks like for the day, it will always include eyeliner. I’ve tested quite a few throughout the years. Shop my favorites below!


Over the break


Sorry for the quite unintended break in posts! My friend Keri got married this past weekend, and I was honored to be one of the bridesmaids! I was staying at her house for the week near Chicago, and between attempting to maintain a regular work schedule (which didn’t happen, by the way), catching up with friends in the area and wedding prep, I knew I’d be pressed for time to create blog posts for last week. But the break was well worth it! The wedding was absolutely beautiful — and can we talk about how gorgeous Keri looked in her dress?

Blazer: TJ Maxx | Tee: Gap | Denim: Elle | Wedges: Relativity | Bag: DVF | Bracelets: Forever 21

Never in a million years did I think I’d be wearing jeans and a blazer in the middle of July sans being in an air-conditioned building. But thanks to the summer version of the polar vortex, this outfit happened. I’ll take a few 60-degree July days that allow me to wear jeans any day! 

How was your weekend? Mine was filled with wedding activities (my cousin got married in a beautiful ceremony on Saturday) and catching up with friends and family. I’m off to Chicago tomorrow for wedding number two!
