Whoop Whoop, Happy Friday!!! June is going by way to fast!! Unfortunately, it's pouring down rain today. My mom and I were going to go to the beach but instead I'll be home today pricing garage sale stuff for our pre-moving sale next month. This weekend I hope to stop and take it in a little slower with a brunch wedding, day date afternoon with Mr. Nine and the boys all finishing up some landscaping updates on Sunday to get the house ready to sell later this summer. No worries, more beach days are within reach!! Let's get to some favorites and fun!

1. First College Apartment
So, the reason I was off blog land the end of last week was our oldest did a transfer orientation to IU and we went and saw his first college apartment he will be moving into in the Fall. He changed majors to Intelligent Systems Engineering and the IU campus has so much more to offer. Plus, he can walk to the stadium. Tailgate parties at his place, lol

2. Our Niece and her BF
I'm going to brag on our beautiful niece and her sweet boyfriend. They just graduated from Cardinal Ritter in Indianapolis and this Fall, she will be attending Xavier University. He will attend Easter Illinois on a baseball scholarship. Just this past weekend, Blake and his team won state! Our niece was unable to be there and had to listen to the game because she is on a field experience doing lots of fun stuff including......

....Hiking in Colorado!!! Love this girl!

3. Week's Attire
TJ Maxx Dress, Target Cardi, Charming Charlie necklace

Gap top, The Loft Pants, Macy's I.N.C. necklace. Another way to wear this top HERE

4. Slouchy Beach Graphic Sweatshirt
I love me a slouchy sweatshirt. The beach town where we go soon and every summer has some cooler evenings so a comfy outfit like this is a must for watching the sunset and hanging our with the fam.

5. Misc. Fun!
Bonomo's Turkish Taffy
I always think of Narnia, ya know, "The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe" and the Turkish Delight when I think Taffy. My mom told me about the amazing Taffy from Bonomo's so I bought her a 3lb bag to share with me. Next up I want to try my other favorite flavor: Vanilla!

Jouer Lip Products
I first heard about this company on the Today show and I am blown away by their products and the decent price. I am all about metallics lately and let me tell ya, this stuff is the BEST!! And it smells like a Dum Dum cream soda sucker, which is my favorite sucker!!

Have a Summer Weekend to remember sweet peeps!!

Linking up with  Amanda // Friday Favorites  // Oh Hey, Friday  // High 5 For Friday // 5 on Friday // Fashion Friday



Love, love , love a good midi and this one from The Loft was perfect. Welcome to our weekly fashion link-up. Today, I'm also over at The Blended Blog showing off my favorite Pom Pom clutch. I was just in The Loft recently and the sales lady said this was one of their fastest selling skirts. I could not find it online and I just ordered it 3 weeks ago but there were still a handful in my store so, check yours.

What I love about it, besides the length is the color me, it's a great mix to take us right into Fall, although I'm not ready for my favorite season yet at all. I was just thinking it'll be great to get another season out of it.

The linen tee is also from The Loft and I love how they are made. I never really used to be a huge fan of the mustard color but it really popped with this. In fact, when I walked in the living room, Mr. Nine said "that's a really pretty outfit!" So, of course I knew it was a winner!

The satchel purse by Sole Society is my favorite purchase from last year's Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I can't believe the big sale is next month! Are you ready?

Cannot wait to see what goodness you link-up today for our The Blended Blog Style Link-Up! Don't forget to head over to there and check out another fun summer outfit I styled. Have a glorious and sweet day my friends!!



 "She was an American Girl!" Just love that song by Tom Petty. I always wished I was Italian, from a country in the Swiss Alps or Canadian after traveling to Canada and meeting my brilliant Canadian friends. However, truth be told I'm pretty happy to be a citizen of the land of the free. If I'm being super honest, the pride swells in me the older I get but that could also be due to the growth in my love of all things red, white and blue. I find myself pondering the idea to wear all things Stars and Stripes during our July beach vacation and after getting yet another Americana piece with this darling straw flag tote, I said "whoa," that's enough patriotism wear, lol. Or maybe not.
I thought it would be fun to make this a Fashion LINK-UP. You can link-up old or new red, white and blue!!!!! It doesn't have to be those colors, link-up all your fashion goodness. I thought it'd be fun to get some style or stars and stripes inspiration for the biggest day in the year for the land of cotton and corn!! 
My dear friend Shauna from Lipgloss & Lace is a huge fan of all things patriotic and I first fell in love with this tote in one of her adorable posts. 
It is the perfect All-American straw bag for Summer!

While I will for sure be donning some stars on my clothing in the next couple weeks, What I love about this outfit is that each piece can be worn with so many different things. 

The new piece in this ensemble is this cute as a button red cross front ruffle sleeve top. Perfect with just some white jeans and blue wedges. Throw in the purse and a trio of red, white and blue bead bracelets and I'm ready to wave the flag at the parade and watch some fireworks over the lake.
