Orange You Glad That Summer’s Here?

It’s officially the last day of school folks! Put away the teacher hat, and bring on the fun in the summer bliss! [except for the fact that I’m teaching summer school, ha!]

What’s more summer than a bright colored maxi dress?

Feel Good Sandals — Allie Rae Footwear

I was going to do an outfit post today, but I came across this special company and I just feel so compelled to tell you about it! So introducing Allie Rae Footwear — a company trying to raise money to start up their company that focuses on creating jobs and self-sustaining communities in Hondurus through the production of stylish and comfortable sandals.

I feel like my words don’t do this company justice, so please take a look at their short video!

Look how gorgeous their designs are! Simple yet elegant and not to mention how well made they are. Right now they are awaiting the patent for their unique heel design. Basically, they somehow figured out how to make sandals more comfortable with the heel.

They only have 9 days left to raise the funds, or all of the pledges are going to be gone. So literally it’s All or Nothing.

They are hoping for at least 10,000 people to donate just $10 or more. So let’s get to it! Pledge and spread the word! I decided to pledge $125 in order to get my own pair of Allie Rae Sandals. I think it’s the best deal because you get to both support their cause as well as enhance your shoe collection!

And just to show you how versatile these sandals are, I’ve created 3 style boards for you! I hope this inspires you to make a pledge!

Early or Late // I Couldn’t Wait + GIVEAWAY

Man, I’m struggling here. The sun is shining, the beach is calling my name and it doesn’t help that I have some new summer clothes that I want to wear!

I spent this past long weekend visiting my grandparents in LA and came back Monday with just enough time to squeeze in a Memorial Day BBQ before the weekend was up! I know I’m a little late when it comes to posting a Memorial Weekend outfit, but I’m just going to say that this is my exceptionally early July 4th outfit. Hey, if it works, why not? 🙂

STOP!!!!!!!!

If you usually skip my babbling and just scroll through the pictures, hold your horses! Let me tell you about the perfect white blouse I’m wearing. I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled to find the perfect white sleeveless blouse for awhile. It has to have a pocket, needs to be tapered in a little bit, needs to have a good length to tuck/tie or leave as is…….Guess what? Here it is.

Thank you Boden for coming up with the perfect blouse to start off my summer wardrobe right! If you haven’t checked out Boden yet, now is the time!  They have a great collection of apparel that will keep you cool and stylish this summer! {Right now they are having 30% all dresses!}

Oak and Florals

Three day weekend are nice aren’t they? If only society changed the work week to Tu-Fri instead. 🙂 Sadly, it’s time to get back to work but lucky for me there are only 9 more days of school left! In the mean time, you can find me chugging coffee trying to push through. Ha.

Today I bring you a spring look full of florals and color!

If you haven’t heard of Oak 73 yet, let me be the first to introduce you to this online brand. They focus on the classic shapes but they put a twist on them that makes the apparel anything but boring. Also, I love how all their products are made in the U.S.A. Fabulous designs + Quality make = Happy Girl 

I’m wearing their Painted Floral Dress which is the perfect summer dress as the weather continues to warm up. It’s sleeveless but I wanted to wear it to work so I decided to throw on a blazer to make it more appropriate.

Casual in Grey and Gold

Today is just one of those days where the “laid back” feelings of summer are creeping up on me, hence it’s going to be a casual Tuesday with a simple look. We all need simple looks, right?

To spice up this simple look, I decided to accessorize with some gorgeous jewelry from Wrenn Jewelry. Alissa Wrenn Smith specializes in intricately handmade jewelry that will add a classic touch to any outfit. Her passion for jewelry making and creativity shines brightly through her designs. Because of the simplicity and daintiness of her jewelry, they are perfect for everyday wear!

 Quality gems, classic designs, and a hint of sparkle? What more can you ask for?

Oh yea, and you may have noticed that you don’t see any pictures of my footwear. After looking back at pictures, I realized that my choice of shoes wasn’t really working so I decided to spare your eyes. All about trial and error right?

Tell me, what shoes would you wear with this outfit?
