sister plaid

My sister came home for the weekend, so obviously the first thing I asked her was if she wanted do pictures for the blog. (I'm sure it's so much fun to have your sister always making sure you pack cute clothes so she can take pictures of you ;)) But if you ask me, she's a natural at this point. Girl was throwing out poses left and right. I love when photoshoots can be fun!

apple picking

A couple of weekends ago I went apple picking at this super cute orchard called Solebury Farms. Obviously going into it I had high expectations of fall fabulousness, and picking delicious apples. Happy to say, my expectations were exceeded! I had SO much fun, I got delicious apples, AND even got fresh apple cider donuts (ohmygoshsogood). A comfy sweater, my new FAVORITE jeans, and my trusty Hunter boots ended up being the perfect outfit for the day. And I'm already thinking about going back again...

sweater: Banana Republic (similar) // jeans: Joe's Jeans (seriously my new favorite brand. they fit like a dream and are so worth the investment!) // boots: Hunters (similar) // sunglasses: Nich Boutique (similar) // lips: NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Prague

Tis the time of year for fall activities! What are you going to do?

weekly roundup

one: When I first clicked on the trailer for The Final Girls, I thought it would be a little stupid. But it actually looks really good! I love everyone in the cast, and I can't wait to see it!

two: 29 times the pun was strong with tumblr. Beware, you will probably laugh out loud as you read through these!

four: Demi Lovato recently did a cover of "Take Me to Church" and oh my goodness, it is amazing.

Have a great weekend!

pink eyelet

I bought this top on a whim during a Loft sale back in July, and it quickly became one of my favorite shirts! I've been really into key pieces lately, rather than "trendy" pieces that I tend to wear only a few times. Probably a good move on my part (or at least my bank account thinks so). So I'm all about finding comfy, but pretty tops that can be worn in numerous ways! Starting to feel like an adult with this grown up decision! ;)

shirt: Loft (love this one!) // jeans: J.Crew Factory (30% off with code EXTRA30) // shoes: Target (similar) // necklace: J.Crew (similar) // sunglasses: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (use the code DRESSINSPARKLES to get your first month of renting free!)

I think I could get used to this buying "staples" thing!

favorite summer looks

Like I said in yesterday's post, I think I'm finally ready to wrap up summer and head into fall. That being said, I'm definitely going to miss my summer outfits! So I thought I'd round up a few of my favorite looks from this summer, and see what your favorites were!

Which was your favorite?

closing out summer

I have to admit it, I'm officially excited for fall. We went apple picking yesterday (more on that to come), and it was a tad chilly, and I absolutely loved it. I'm totally ready for fall fashion, and ready to transition some of my favorite summer staples into fall wear. Case in point, this SUPER comfy button up from Ann Taylor. Part of a perfect summer outfit with white shorts and wedges, but I can already envision it with boots and a fun statement necklace! Okay fall, bring it on! But first...closing out summer...

shirt: Ann Taylor (super similar!) // shorts: Target (similar) // wedges: Target // sunnies: Anthropologie (similar)

Who else is ready to close out summer and take on fall?

weekly roundup

one: I may be biased, but boxers are the best kind of dog. (I had a boxer named Tugger, and he was the absolute best dog in the world!) And if you need some reasons why they're the best, here's a list ;)

four: This baby getting so excited over her pet cat is probably one of the cutest things I've ever seen! She just loves that cat!

Have a fun weekend!

pink pineapples

Summer is coming to an end now, but I'll be fighting it til the end with pink and pineapples! I didn't have much of a summer because of my nursing program, and it's still pretty darn hot, so I'm going to let my summer continue on for as long as I want it to! Who's with me? ;)

shirt: Loft (similar) // scarf: Loft (similar) // shorts: Forever 21 (similar) // shoes: Carlos Santana (similar) // sunglasses: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (use the code DRESSINSPARKLES to get your first month of renting free!) 

What are you going to wear to keep summer alive?
