What shennanies did you partake in?
Summer has taken quite a while to reach these parts. We had a decent month of May, but let me tell you, June, well June and I, we aren’t on speaking terms. It was cold and windy, and it rained nearly every day.
July has been pretty good so far, sunshine every day and the temperatures have been great. If only the wind would stop. But thats wishful thinking here in Newfoundland.
But I’m a take what I can get kinda girl, so I’ve been soaking up every bit of sun I can, and doing my best to take advantage of the not freezing my ass off temperatures.
Its on my list to spend the 4th in America at least once. Cause I’m sure the parties and fireworks are unbelievable.
It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the items for this week’s edition of Therapy Thursday. There was an awful lot of swipe swipin’ going on on my trip to St. John’s, pretty sure my credit card is worn out, but I came back dreaming about a bunch of stuff I didn’t buy. So without further ado…
one. I love this color. I always gravitate towards it in stores.What I love about this dress is that the short hemline is well balanced with the modest neckline and elbow length sleeves.
two. This one is alot like number one, but I had to include it, I just had to. I mean, how could I not, look at that amazing chevron pattern. Swoon.
three. Again, another chevron, but this one is a little different, so I feel its justified. I’m really enjoying loose fitting vests right now. They’re great alone, or under a blazer or cardigan. I have a few solid ones, but I’d love to get one in a playful pattern like this one.
I buy my Everly at a store called Envy which I talked about here. But you can also shop for it online at Red Dress Boutique and Piperlime.
Four. I desperately need a new pair of jeans. I wear jeans almost every day, and I have two or three pairs that I rotate through. So as you can imagine, they get a lot of wear. Normally I buy Silver brand jeans, but lately I’ve been thinking about buying a pair of J Brand. They’re a bit more expensive than I what I’m used to, but I’ve been told buy a bunch of people that the quality is great, the color hardly fades and that they’re worth it. I’m really looking for a pair of super dark skinnies, and I think these fit the bill.
I love Aldo Shoes. I can almost always find what I’m looking for, and the price doesn’t break the bank.
Five. I’m usually not a fan of flats, but sometimes you want to look put together at times when heels are just not practical. I’m liking these because the shape of the toe helps elongate the leg which is something I think is super important.
Six. Again, these have that great pointed toe that I like. What I enjoy most about these though is the metallic toe cap. It jazzes them up a bit which is great for when you want to take an outfit from day to night. No shame showing up at a bar in these.
Seven. I am the queen of jean shorts. I own at least 8 pairs, most of which are fairly similar. What can I say, when I find something I like, I stick with it. With that said, I have zero casual/dressy shorts. For those times when jean shorts are too casual or just not the appropriate choice. These black shorts from Scotch & Soda are great because they would look good dressed down with a t-shirt or you could dress them up a bit with a nice blouse if you chose to. You have to love items that are versatile.
Eight. Its no secret around these parts, or to my friends and family, that I love blazers. I own a bunch and they get lots of wear. I love them because they’re a great way to classy up an outfit. In the summer I try to stay away from dark colors and neutrals, and infuse some color into my wardrobe. This blazer from Smart Set would be an excellent way to do that.
That concludes this week’s edition of things my bank account hopes I don’t buy.

I had the best weekend! I spent the weekend in St. John’s with my cousin Shelley. My friend Jennifer was supposed to be in town, but she scored a really great last minute deal to Cuba, so she was busy soaking up the sun.
It may have been a bit of a drive. Okay, 8 hours is more than a bit, but it was totally worth it. I had so much fun, that I hardly took any pictures. Not very “blogger” of me I know, I did the best I could to remember, but its hard to take pictures of a ton of stuff without your friends looking at you like you’re crazy, cause they don’t have a sweet clue about this little space in the blogosphere.
Anyways, I did the best I could, with the terrible memory and lack of stealthy picture taking skills. So without further ado, here’s a little photo evidence of my extra long weekend shenanigans…
