Rainy summer day

Rainy summer day

Rainy summer day by lteevens featuring essie nail polish
It has been a bit of a rainy week up here in NH...although I have nothing on the peeps down in FLA! I will say that the cooler weather has been nice, I love wearing a sweater or sweatshirt in the morning. 

Anyway- I'm DYING to find those missoni/haviana (spelling?) collaboration sandals...anyone know where to pick some up? I'm also digging those nail polish colors, it's a nice change up from my typical summer coral color...what's your go-to summer color?

Makes you think

For some reason this statement really stuck out to me...Read it and just think about it...Are you where you thought you'd be in life, career, family or anything else?
Hope you all had a great weekend. XO

I've been running around like a crazy person but wanted to show you a summer must-have...(I'm doing this at work...shhh don't tell)

I worked at a golf tourney this past weekend and wore this all day...it was super hot but this dress kept me cool and didn't show any sweat marks (bonus!). I wore it with a super basic gap tank bra in white with flat sandals and minimal jewelry. It's my new go-to.
Happy Monday XO

I'm back...sorta

So in case you don't read cheerios and beer (which you totally should because Whit is my bff and WAY more fun/funny)...Whitney and I have something super fun up our sleeves...and the big reveal is coming your way on:
I can't tell you what it is yet but I hope you'll be as excited as we are!
Also, this week Kirtie (aka mom) and I have a fun shopping date in Boston on Wed/Thurs! I am so excited because the weather is supposed to be beautiful so I actually get to wear cute summer clothes...no more of this all black, all workout-wear (at least for one day). I decided to put together a little outfit on Polyvore for your viewing pleasure :)
Day Shopping in Boston

I'll have to take a pic of the outfit in person and you guys can weigh in on what you think- sound good?

Also, I need a fun dinner outfit for Wednesday...can someone please put one together for me?! XO

Kitchen ideas

So it's almost time for the fun stuff...picking colors, counters, hardware!

Ever since we started re-doing this house I've been super excited about the kitchen...I want open shelving, a big island and  light grey-green cabinets. Does anyone have any color suggestions? Here are some of my inspiration photos:

Operation Headboard: Complete!

Making the cuts 

Some beverages...yes, we're classy.

One done!


Artistic photo...thanks Instagram.
-Plywood cut to size of twin bed with an extra 1/4" on either side
-Batting (enough for at least three layers per headboard)
-Fabric of your choice (4 yards total worked for us)...we actually got "outdoor canvas" material because it was a little thicker and more durable.
-Industrial staple gun

You also need a good dose of patience because making sure everything is lined up evenly is painstaking, although having a semi-geometric pattern did make that easier.

Total time taken: 2.5 hours
Drinks consumed: me (2 1/2 glasses of wine) hubby (1 beer)...obviously we know who worked more and who "observed" with a drink in their hand :)
