Heart In A Cage

Junebugs Dress in Birdcage Print in Blue

I can't sing enough praise for the Junebugs and Georgia Peaches collection from Pinup Girl Clothing.  There were a few pieces I couldn't wait to add to my closet and then there was this Junebugs dress.  While I love a great novelty print, the collar kind of scared me.  While visiting the boutique with Sammi last week I decided to try it on for fun.  It may not have come home with me that day, but I couldn't stop thinking about it.  And as you can see, it's now a part of my dress collection.  I even got a sweet compliment from my husband when I wore it!  I guess collars aren't so bad after all...

What's On My Radar: Current Loves

This month has a bunch of new and wonderful picks!  I'm looking into some home decor items (my husband and I are slowly redecorating our house) and I've been meaning to expand my shoe collection as well.  Of course, it's still me so there are lots of dresses and pretty prints included.  Here are my picks for August:

Target Office
1. Metal Linear Floor Lamp
2. Burke Slipper Chair
3. Templeton Futon
4. Safavieh Windsor Mirror
5. Windham Accent Cabinet

Target has really upped their game in the home decor department!  Kevin and I just repainted our office and now we're redecorating the space.  While this is a joint effort, these are the items I'd pick for the new space. 


Chelsea Crew
1. Teal and Tan Oped Toed Heel
2. Nude Round Toed Heel
3. Pastel Petal Heel
4. Black and Tan Heel
5. Mustard and Tan Opened Toed Heel

Chelsea Crew heels are just wonderful!  I own several pairs and often wear them to work because they're so comfortable.  Right now they're on Zulily so you can get all of these picks and so much more for a steal.  It's best not to wait because they never stay in stock for long!


Modcloth
1. Biking Through Brussels Dress in Bloom
2. Because I’m Blossom Dress
3. Bloomington Breeze Coat
4. Need I Say Amour? Dress
5. Biking Through Brussels Dress in Dijon

Yes, I know there's a coat on there but it's just so perfect.  I may use it about once a year (if I'm lucky) but it's too pretty to pass up!  As always, quirky novelty prints and florals rule my wandering eye...




Topshop
1. Ribbed Midi Bodycon Dress
2. Striped Midi Skirt
3. Flower Jacquard Dress
4. Crepe Wrap Midi Skirt
5. Notched Neck Striped Dress

Topshop has some great basic pieces with even better prices, so I'm obviously a fan.  I love how they make many of their dresses in a maternity, tall, and petite version so ladies of all shapes and sizes can enjoy the same great style.


That's all for this month!  What's on your wishlist?  Are you getting ready for the fall or basking in the summer like I am?  Let me know in the comments below!

Navy Lilac

Bernie Dexter Chelsea dress in Navy Lilac print

I took a bit of an unexpected hiatus this past week, only because I've been having way too much fun with Sammi!  Today would be our first day without solid plans which is actually quite nice.  We've done some shopping, a Disneyland trip, visited some wonderful rescue barn animals, and met up with our friends Elana, Erica, Sarah, and Alex.  We also had time to take outfit photos at one of my favorite local nature reserves.  Having another person with you while you take your own pictures isn't only easier, but it takes the edge off when you have curious people around you.  I've come to the conclusion that they're less likely to ask questions when you're in a group!

Teal Harlequin

Pinup Girl Clothing Teal Harlequin Jenny skirt

And the harlequin outfits continue!  I didn't actually intend to post these outfits back to back, but I couldn't help but share my trip to the grape fields.  While the Temecula wineries can get pretty busy, there was nobody around in the early hours of the morning.  As someone who really enjoys being alone, this was yet another perfect moment in a beautiful place.  I feel like I'll be making these early morning solo trips more often, it does wonders to your spirit!

Purple Harlequin

Pinup Girl Clothing Jenny dress in Purple Harlequin print

I'm sure it's no surprise when I say that purple is one of my favorite colors.  So when Pinup Girl Clothing released a purple harlequin print I was all over it!  I initially purchased this dress right after having Bianca and my dress size was much larger.  I didn't think I'd get the chance to own it in my actual size because this color way is now discontinued.  Thankfully, I have a few close friends (in this case, Sarah) who all wear the same size and our clothing is constantly swapped between us.  I got this from Sarah for a steal and I'm so happy it's finally returned to me!
