Probably one of the biggest reasons I ever considered starting my own blog is because I personally love reading blogs! So I thought I’d share the love from my blog reader and talk about a few posts that caught my eye this week. Keep scrolling for some summer wardrobe tips, a cake recipe I’m obsessed with, and a fun post on speed cleaning.
1 – First off, does anyone else find summer fashion waaaay more challenging than dressing for cooler weather? I feel like I’m really struggling right now to look put together while navigating the soaring temps + freezing air conditioning.
Which brings me to this super-helpful post from Audrey at Putting Me Together. Her capsule suggestions are right on. I think if I just added a few of these pieces to what I already have, I’d feel way more put together at work (and on my days off too). Even though I work in a super casual environment, I definitely prefer to look polished and professional…which has not really been the case lately!
Since we’re on the topic of summer fashion, I also feel like a huge game-changer for summer outfits is SHOES. When it’s too hot to add layers (and thus, interest) to an outfit, choosing great accessories is a must. I see shoe shopping in my future.
2 – This short post from The Onion entitled Mom Spends Beach Vacation Assuming All Household Duties In Closer Proximity To Ocean. I’m not even a mom, but I thought this was so funny because it is SO TRUE. How does this happen?!
3 – Confetti party cake. I think I must make this. Like, yesterday. There’s something about confetti desserts that just speaks to my inner three-year old so powerfully. Thank you Deb at Smitten Kitchen for enabling me! Recipe: Confetti Party Cake, photo from Smitten Kitchen:
4 – This speed cleaning list from Karianne at Thistlewood Farms. We went out of town for the 4th and the resulting extra laundry/cleanup means that the condition of my house in general is horrendous. It’s not good guys. I just wanna clean ALL day today, but realistically that isn’t going to happen, so I am putting this list to good use! Five minute increments for the win.
Mmk, well that’s it for today! I’m going to head out and make some returns (joy) and then start on that cleaning list. And laundry. Yep. Gonna do it.
