Friday Faves - Colorful Summer Favorites Edition

First off I have to let you guys know that we passed our inspection finally on Wednesday and got temporary occupancy for the next 90 days.  We have to finish the siding and pay $55 for the additional inspection (on top of the $1500 we paid in the beginning for our building permit!) in order to get permanent occupancy.  Thanks for all your words of support and luck!

Since it’s officially June and almost officially summer, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been swooning over lately.  I love how colorful everything this year, it just makes me feel all around happy seeing everything so vibrant!

This bag…
I am loving this overnight bag from Tiny Devotions.  They have a bunch of cute ones, but I love the color scheme of this one.  The price is a tad more than I would like to spend for the time being, but it’s definitely on my list & maybe would be a nice birthday gift to myself!

This Nail Polish…

I have been getting gel manicures like they’re going out of style these last few months and I love all the colors, but spending between $30-$40 every 10 or so days is putting a huge, unnecessary dent in my wallet.  I just found the perfect shade of blue called Dive Bar (love the name!) from Sally Hansen at Target and it’s such a fun shade.  Although regular nail polish doesn’t last but a couple days on my nails, the price is much better for my budget.

This Colorful Quartz Druzy Pendant…

I cannot get enough of OM Soul Shop, their stuff is just so wonderful!  I'm obsessed with this Quartz Druzy Pendant necklace & I had such a  hard time choosing between the black, the lavender, and the turquoise, but ultimately stuck with what I love most and that is the turquoise.  The black would be perfect to go with a LBD and really does make a classy statement, the turquoise stands out more to me though and has always been one of my favorite colors.  And bonus, since my order # was 1111 they are sending me a free gift!  How fun!

These awesome Converse Chuck Taylors…

I have always really loved Chucks, they’re comfortable and come in a multitude of colors.  I used to rock pink low tops and black high tops for years, but it’s been awhile since I’ve owned a good pair.  For my cousins wedding in August we are all (and by we are all I mean, all of us family) are wearing Converse since the entire wedding party is also wearing them.  I found this fabulous hand-painted pair on Etsy and asked for them for a birthday present from Joe.  They will go perfectly with my purple and cream dress I’m planning to wear!

These colorful Sassy Cheetah Shorts…

I got these a couple weeks ago from Hot Chakras Yoga and they are amazing. I liked the price, plus I had a coupon code & they are offering free shipping right now with a code of FREESHIP.  I love how colorful these are as are pretty much everything else in their shop.  I really love these Birds of Paradise ones too!

Well, there you have it!  All the fun, colorful stuff that I’ve been swooning over for summer!  What are your favorites for summer?

  5. ooooh those shorts are super cute, and free shipping? hmm....
    i feel you on the nails. even when i get them done professionally, they never last (4 days as opposed to barely one day when i do them myself) and it's such an unnecessary hit on the budget! that blue is gorgeous though.
