Summer Nights

Last night J and I went with some of our best friends to see one of our favorite musicians at one of the most beautiful amphitheaters ever-Michael Franti and Spearhead at Red Butte Gardens. It was an absolutely perfect night and we had an amazing time. And even though it was a little hot, we still decided to ride our vintage cruisers to the show so we didn’t have to deal with parking-and it was well worth the sweat. A perfect summer night that only served to remind me why I never want to see summer go…

Tank: JCrew (on sale for under $10!) | Jeans: Rich & Skinny (old), similar | Cuff:  Fair Trade | Earrings: GroopDealz, LOVE these| Sunnies: Nordstrom | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Flip Flops: Dini’s Los Angeles for Havianas

While this outfit is extremely casual, I have to say that I am loving all of the playful colors.  Red and pink are a favorite color combo of mine and I am loving the pops of neon back to the mirrored aviators.  Who says comfort can’t be fun?

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

FPF: Montana Love Tee

I will always have a love affair with my home state of Montana. There is just something so special about it that I can’t explain. It was the most incredible place to grow up and someday I hope I can raise my children there, or that it will, at the very least, be an important part of their lives too. And because I was lucky enough to marry a man who loves Montana as much as I do, every summer, J and I make a trip back to my hometown to soak in the beauty, the serenity, and all of the amazing-ness that is Montana. And this year’s vacation, as usual, was the high light of my summer. So when I saw these cute Montana Shirt Co. Tee’s everywhere on Facebook and realized their shop was located in my hometown, I knew I needed to get one so I could express my love for my home state with pride anytime, anywhere…

Montana Tee: Montana Shirt Co. | Jeans: Joe’s (same style, different wash) | Necklace: GroopDealz, similar | Watch:  Michael Kors | Sunnies: Rayban | Pumps: Marc Fischer

Be sure to stop by Montana Shirt Co. and check out their assortment of tee’s, tanks and hoodies.  They have a ton of cute stuff and the quality is fantastic.  But be sure to order at least a size up-the women’s tee’s run pretty small.

Hope you all had a fantastic week.  Happy Friday!!!!!

Where The Green Grass Grows

Not only did J and I purchase a house two years ago that needed a complete gut job and remodel on the inside, but it also needed a total overhaul of the outside as well. And after countless projects and a lot of hard work (we have done the majority of it ourselves), we are literally one project away from completion-both inside and out. And since one of my favorite things about warmer weather is fresh-cut grass (both the smell and the color), I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend countless evenings on the back deck enjoying ours this summer. And I am guessing this also might just be the explanation as to why I am so enamored with my grass-green tote right now…

I am on the road again this week for work-which marks two weeks in a row.  And while I love my job, I can’t even begin to describe how much I am looking forward to getting home tomorrow night, and spending a nice relaxing weekend lounging in our finished backyard.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!
