. . . for Lauren and Lauren: I know what you're thinking

June 30, 2013

I know what you're thinking

 
tee: old navy    skirt: tjmaxx  necklace: curated by Kelly

Oh look, another maxi skirt and tee.  This is getting old.  

and yes I am thinking the same thing.  But I am running out of options.  I've thought about not posting outfits much since it is getting to be the same thing, but realize that posting outfits on my blog is probably one of the top motivation these days for getting dressed.  

If it weren't for that I'd only be wearing my boxer shorts and same tank top like I do most days.  And my tank top would be pulled high above my belly because I hate things touching my stomach these days.  Let's just say it's not a pretty sight.  


I am however incredibly thankful for accessories.  If it weren't for them I'd start to get even more bored with my outfit.  This is my new favorite necklace from Kelly.  I've wanted one like this for awhile and am so glad I waited until I got this one.  If you haven't checked out her shop you need to do  it.  She has so many beautiful pieces and they are not expensive either!  Win, win! :)  

Another thing that I'm thankful for is funny, cute and personable bloggers like Kaylin.  I'm happy she's back on my blog today to share with you 5 things that are better in summer.  I could easily come up with a list of 20 right away and they would include watermelon, dresses and walks.  


Sometimes you just need to be one with your outfit, if you know what I mean,
so insert awesome leopard impersonation here.....

Clearly, I nailed it.
I'm Kaylin, and I blog here at Stay  Blonde, Ski Local, or SBSL for short.  You'll hear tons about my new niece, my online shopping addiction, I'll even talk about weight gain, how I feel about blogging, and I'll confess a few personal things while I am at it as well.

I started reading Katie's blog the day I started blogging, which coincidentally was the day I started reading blogs. I immediately feel in love with her relate-ability, kind character, and adorable (and affordable) style!!!

Katie loves summer, but honestly who doesn't???
Summer is exponenially better than most all seasons, 
except maybe winter for the skiing, but for now we'll just agree it's better.
 So here are five things that are better in summer.

1.  Reading-
 sure curling up by the fire and reading sounds fun, but I usually end up falling asleep. Give me a lounge chair by the pool or lake, and a book, and it's like I blink and I've finished the book.  I love it. Super relaxing, and getting a tan while doing it. It's simply called multitasking.

2. Going to the Movies- 
Let's not pretend like the movies are 'enjoyable' in winter.  Who wants a cherry slurpee when it's raining outside? Also why must theatres run the air conditioners year round. Lay off the AC in the winter Signature Six, it's just no necessary. But when it's triple digit heat, going to the movies is AMAZING.  Plus don't all the good movies come out during summer anyways?

3. Walks- 
I love walking Zoey, try to do it every day. Though when it's cold, and I can see my breath (it doesn't even snow where I live, and overall we have mild temperatures, you Mid-Westerners are hating me right now) it's hard to find motivation to get out there and walk.  Summer is always more fun, there are more people out, everyone is happy, and you don't have to wear rain boots or a parka.

4. Dinner Dates-
 Need I say more. When the waitress asks, 'inside or outside', it's a no brainer, outside. 
In winter it's not an option. I LOVE sitting outside.

5. Road Trips-
 Traveling someplace by car isn't always fun, but when you can have your windows down, and awesome upbeat 'sing along songs', eight hours feels more like two and just like that you are at your destination, no worse for the wear.
Stop by SBSL sometime, I'd love to have you.
Also get out there and enjoy summer, it won't last forever.


Thank you Kaylin!  You know that I am much happier in the summer too!

Hang in there girlfriend...you are in the home stretch. And, what is wrong with maxis and tees everyday? LOL

Oh, I'm totally in the same uniform right now. Isn't it weird how sensitive your belly is right now? I live in my hubby's clothes most days, and dread OB appointment days (when I actually have to get dressed).

Joyce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Tiffany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha! That's what you should post a picture of. The tank and boxer shorts. =) I'm not even pregnant and I'm pretty sure after my 30 for 30, I'm going to spend an entire week and a tank and pj shorts, so... ;)

And yes, summer is the BEST! =)

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, I promise I wasn't thinking that! It's a great combo, so it doesn't get old :) And that necklace is gorgeous!

Ginny said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm with you on motivation for summer dress, if you're not going nowhere it's a little hard to make yourself look nice. Love this green on you :)

You are almost there!!! And I say you are a rock star with the maxis, tees and accessories!! Adorable!!

Desiree Macke said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I can totally relate to wearing (or not wearing) "regular" clothes. The last few weeks of pregnancy I was in mesh shorts (with little to no elastic), and pulled them way up over my belly, and I wore only my hubby's t-shirts. :)
You're close. Hang in there momma!!

Lauren ONeill said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Thanks for introducing me to another awesome blogger! I kept laughing at her answers and will be heading over to her blog now!

PS: I would be totally fine with wearing a tee and maxi skirt every single day but I'm not pregnant so I have no excuse... :)

Summer is definitely my favorite--I love eating outside, even at home. We've had quite a rainy summer so far, though.

Katie, it won't be long now!!
