Sanuk

On the Edge & In Style

Today, I got to wear the outfit I was planning on wearing last night to the Jason Mraz concert. After we had our South Florida, daily, afternoon rains, I was hesitant to wear my brand new dress on the wet lawn so I made a last minute change in attire.

When my best girlfriend and I made plans for drinks on the water tonight, I was happy for the opportunity to wear my new dress! Here’s what I wore:

The dress, I picked up at Marshall’s for $12.99

The bag is brand new as well, Nine West. Again, Marshall’s and I only paid $14.99. I had been looking for a small bag to use at the concert and was very pleased with this find.

My usual Sanuk flip-flops (I swear I live in these things down here in South Florida).

I used a belt from another dress around the waist just to break it up a bit.

Second day in a row rocking the aviator shades.

“K” and I enjoyed our drinks and a light dinner right on the water of an awesome spot called On the Edge in Ft Pierce and took in the music played by another close friend of ours. Here’s a couple of shots of the beautiful view we enjoyed as the sun went down:

Can’t beat that!

Neutered & Neutral

Yes, you read the title correctly. On my last of 3 lovely days off from work in a row, I took my little baby doodle-bug, Jack Daniels to be neutered. I spent the day waiting anxiously to pick him up and working on some craft projects (you will get to read all about them in some up-coming DIY posts! So get excited!)

Because I was planning on a relaxing day around the house and pool, my Daily Threads were pretty basic and way comfortable. I spent most of the morning in a bathing suit and eventually put on “real” clothes for the rest of the afternoon. My look was pretty neutral with minimal accessories (basically, just enough to avoid the “naked” feeling). Because I failed to post my daily threads for my last two days off of work (they were pretty basic as well) I wanted to make sure to post today, especially since tomorrow I’m back in black. My black suit for work that is.

Here’s what I wore:

  • Navy Blue V-Neck T – Forever21
  • Navy Blue Flowy-“vest” – Forever21
  • Khaki Shorts – Old Navy
  • Straw Fedore – Gift from my friend, TRO
Each of these pieces is pretty “old”. Forever21 goods are usually good for a few wears and then pretty misshapen and/or ripped but these two pieces have held up at least a year now. And I love the flowy vest so much!!!
The Old Navy shorts are about to get the chuck because they drive me nuts. The bottoms just crinkle right up and fold over so I look like I’m constantly picking wedgies, when in reality I’m sparing the world a view at the crescents of my pasty white ass… I guess those two actions are similar… but they’re different!! I’m not exactly the biggest fan of Old Navy. I usually end up pretty disappointed with my purchases. I do, however, feel super skinny when I try on their clothes since their sizes are about 2-3 sizes too big.
  • My Claddagh
  • My Silver chain
  • Silver and Faux-Turquoise bangle by Lucky Brand

My Mom was kind enough to be my photographer for the day. She quickly alerted me when there was the illusion of a camel-toe, and that’s why I love her.

Anyone want to guess at what I wore on my feet? If you guessed crocs, you should be shot. If you guessed my Sanuk flip flops, you’re awesome as well as correct.

Cheers! and here’s to Jack’s balls!

“made of flesh. made of sand. made of human”

Here’s what I wore today:

It was a laid-back day off of work with plans to surf in the evening. I wore a camel-colored corduroy skirt by Bongo that I got at a thrift store not that long ago for a couple of bucks. I wore a brand new, plain white t that I got from Ross for $7.99 (I go crazy for a fresh white T/tank… I just love them!) I had my usual Sanuk flip flips on and borrowed my friend’s hat that was laying around the boys’ house.

Here’s how I accessorized:

(crappy cell-phone pic) My short silver chain w/ shamrock, long owl necklace, Lucky Brand Peace sign earrings, my claddagh ring, owl ring, silver chain bracelet, silver bangle, Alex & Ani star of venus bangle, earth tone beads and jade beads.

But that wasn’t my only look for the day. Once it was time to head to the beach I had to switch it up.

I borrowed the men’s Levi plaid button up and simply tied it around my waist. I wore a pair of white shorts for a small amount of time as well.

As soon as we got out there, the white shorts came off. Later on, once I was tired of being tossed around like a rag doll, I wore the shirt open and untied without the shorts.

I happened to be wearing the oldest bathing suit I own, but it’s an “old faithful” for me. It’s my black and teal Billabong bikini.

It was a glorious evening at the beach; we didn’t leave until well after the sun went down. The beach at dusk is beautiful… I may not have had any major break-throughs in my surfing “lessons”, but I got some writing down and generally just enjoyed the salty air and warm breeze.

Title of post “made of flesh, made of sand, made of human” from Jason Mraz’s “Only Human”.

With A Bow On Top

It’s been too long since I’ve posted my Daily Threads and even then, I wasn’t very good at consistently posting them. I’d like to try and get better at this… I guess we’ll see how that goes. If nothing else, I want to at least feature non-workday ensembles and there’s no better time than the present!

Here’s what I wore today:

I love my new floral tank that I picked up at Ross for $8.99. Paired with my Billabong jean shorts, you can barely tell I have shorts on at all (that’s why I included the second picture). It should be no surprise that I wore my brown Sanuk flip flops… I live in those things.

I actually wore less bracelets than usual. I wore a plain silver chain, an earth-tone beaded bracelet and my Alex & Ani Star of Venus bangle.

Rings: my claddagh, heart turned out, and one of my newest acquisitions, a costume piece, that’ll probably turn real quick. I got it from one of the guests at the hotel who practically forced each of us to take a few pieces. I thought this one was pretty awesome though and so do my guy friends for some reason. The first time I wore this ring, each of the guys, at different times without knowing each other also asked, asked to wear this ring… it was strange.

I wore one of my favorite headbands too! I ordered it from ASOS, I forget how much it was.

I wore, simply, a shamrock on a short silver chain around my neck and spritzed myself with Clinique Happy Heart (one of my absolute favorite perfumes!)

Well that’s it. A casual, summer outfit to sit poolside with the family.

Blue Thursday

My “slow” week at work is coming to an end. I’ve been doing all the desk and paper work that I am unable to really do when we have artists in-house. This week, we’ve had a local renter presenting their production of the musical Chicago, which translates to Katie getting work done and not needing to cater to anyone’s immediate needs. All day I’ve been trying to organize myself, my desk, my planner and my mind for next week. We have shows every day Monday-Saturday; All big acts too. (I will cherish this weekend!) I know next week I’ll barely have time to breath, let alone blog, so I fingered I’d get some posts in before I go all awol again.

Yesterday, when I got home from work my seasonal order from Forever 21 was waiting for me. Each season I pick up a few staple pieces from Forever 21’s website just to kick-start my seasonal wardrobe.

Here’s what a wore today:

White Mid-Sleeve T-Shirt. -Forever 21

Blue Flowy “Vest” cover-up. – Forver 21

Straight leg, loose fit jeans from Paris Blues

My beloved Sanuk flip-flops, brown.

Silver bangles, Diamond Studs

and these adorable Blue Earrings with a very Indian print (♥-♥-♥ Indian Inspired fashions) along the top. I got these on clearance from Target a couple of weeks ago and they are nickel free!!! (which means I can actually wear them!)

I love these flowy, cover-ups! You can throw them over your bathing suit, add it to a plain outfit, you can wear it long, or tie it up, which I think looks adorable!

—Today I was also introduced to a friend’s new blog. She’s someone I’ve worked with on several shows in the past and since then we have kept correspondence via facebook and blogger. She has been maintaining a domestic blog for a while and has recently expanded into a new segment about self improvement and being a young 20-something. I took a peak at what Miss Mary-sunshine has been posting on her new blog and I really think the things she discusses are often things a lot of young women, and frankly, women of all ages, struggle with: weight, appearance, a little self-pampering every once in a while… I hope you’ll check it out and even follow! Mary is a constant source of support for me and all my blogging endeavors, I’m so thankful for that support and would like to return the sentiment. So check out her newest blog! It’s darling! I’m adding it to my “Who I’m Reading” List!
