#OOTD: Little Print Dress


When the heat index breaks the triple digits, it’s breezy sundresses; all day, every day. Guess we’re skipping spring this year, huh Florida? 

Lulu’s has a cute romper version of this dress here!

This and That


This morning I tweezed my eyebrows and put on makeup for the first time in a week. If I could muster the energy to take off my janky chipped nail polish we’d really be getting somewhere; but as my grandmother used to say, ‘one thing at a time, sweet Jesus.’

Livin’ that glamorous holiday retail life.

Also, note to self: You cannot work 60 hours in three days on your feet and not drink any water, you bonehead. The holiday hangover was strong this year, y’all.

As I slowly return to the land of the living after a crazy awesome Mother’s Day at the flower shop — my sixth! — here are a few of my favorite things from around the ol’ Internets this week:

21 Books Every Woman Should Read by 35 – Because the only thing I love more than books is a checklist of books.

While searching for chunky-heeled sandals late last night, I stumbled upon this adorable mini leather messenger bag from Zara that’s less than $30! I impulse-bought that baby in pink.

Cut hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, but even when I get them fresh from the farm they can wilt in a vase within a couple of days. Here’s an easy way to revive them with boiling water.

George Takai is my new favorite Facebook follow, bumping IFL Science into a close (and still beloved) second place.

Whoorl’s ‘8 Things I Learned About Anxiety‘ reads like you’re talking to a friend. As someone who’s experienced varying levels of anxiety since adolescence, I found her insight and tips to be honest, useful, and spot-on.
