Paddleboarding with Pretty Things

I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure how much use we would get out of the paddleboard. Did it seem cool in concept, but would it find more time in the garage than on the lake? I’m happy to report that everyone loves it. This past weekend I had a couple of cute accessories, wearing a breezy embroidered cover-up (these types of purchases go on huge sales at this time in the summer!) and with lovely Miss Ella coming along for the ride.

The Elusive White (and Distressed) Jeans

There are a couple of types of jeans that consistently elude me – white and distressed. As far as white jeans are concerned, no matter how many hours I spend on the treadmill I’m never quite happy with how they look on me. And distressed jeans just never seem appropriate – especially since hitting the big 4-0. So when I found these comfy, not too tight, not in-your-face ripped, white jeans, I was very happy. The sale price definitely helped. I suppose some would argue that these are more of a patchwork style than distressed, but I’m going to put them in the latter category and check it off my list!

Olive Summer

I know, I know, it’s a terribly silly play on words, but I really do love summer. Especially weekends like this last one. A day off with friends on Friday with amazing lake weather, followed by an intense evening storm that all but eliminated any chance for humidity the rest of the weekend. That lead to wonderful mornings and breezy days, comfortable enough on Sunday to throw on this tunic and pants and take a little drive in the beautiful countryside. I purchased this tunic thinking that the color and style would be best in the early fall, but I love to sport a little olive hue after a few sun-kissed days.
