Saturday Morning Musings

Good Morning Sugarplums (!)  Happy Weekend to you!  In the ultimate act of procrastination (since I’m supposed to be moving today), instead of packing I’m drinking coffee, rubbing Gus’ belly and fiddling around with Pinterest.  Whoops.  If you have anything pressing on your plate today, perhaps you should halt and fiddle faddle with me for a minute too:

{WHAT SATURDAYS ARE FOR}

This pic evokes all kinds of warm fuzzies for me, but the ponytail / denim / chambray also makes me feel like Fall’s comin.

Old Navy: Your Summer Secret

One day on a lil’ Sunday stroll along the Santa Monica Promenade, we decided to dip into that old bastion of our collective farm girl youth, Old Navy, for sh*ts and giggles. To our maje surprise, we (mostly Karrie) found a treasure trove of cute little summer outfits – and you guessed it – all were SO inexpensive (everything under $40). Check out what we got, and forgive Karrie’s Lazy Sunday no-makeup look, thank you:

Women’s Jersey Tube Jumpsuit, $37 – So soft and comfy, and available in black too!  Steph’s cute lil’ sleeveless denim jacket found here:

Women’s Jersey Shift Dress, $22 – Wear it as-is for a more profesh look, or get it hemmed to show off your stems, like Karrie promptly did:

Women’s Maxi Cami Dress, $35 – Breezy and casual, or can be made to look more formal with jewelry and what-not. Love this!:

The Pixie Ankle Pants in Blue Floral, $30 – Super comfy, and a bit unexpected. Just get ’em.

Chambray Cami Jumpsuit, $32 – Can be worn under a long cami or sweater at work with wedges or cute sandals, or with flip flops for a more leeeeisurely look:

Embroidered-Stripe Swim Cover-Up, $27 – Don’t mind the wrinkles (ON THE COVER-UP):

K that’s it… for now.  Grab everything quickly, as some stuff’s down to 1-2 sizes. Happy $hopping!
