Ruffle & Mesh Sleeves

Top- Pink Pineapple; similar here & here
Denim- Anthropologie
Shoes- Old, similar
Bag- Francesca's; similar
Earrings- Kate Spade
Bracelets- Altar'd State; A gift (similar)

I'm pretty sure the reason I bought this top was solely because of the sleeves. The detail is so unique and something I have never seen before. I got it at a boutique in Newport, RI and they don't have it online at all (it may not even be in the store either). However, I did link a few similar tops below.

Can someone please explain to me how today is the last day of July for 2015?! I swear this year has gone by like no other and I absolutely hate it. There are just not enough hours in the day; that may be cliche but goodness gracious is it true.

Happy Fri-yay, y'all! Thanks for reading, xo

Second Times the Charm

Shoes- DSW
Earrings- Old, similar
Bracelet- Susie Raine

This is the perfecttt dress for summer! It is so light and airy while still being a perfect length. I wasn't sure I was going to like it because of the pattern and how it looked droopy/big on me, but the second time I put it on I absolutely loved it! Not to mention it came from my current favorite boutique, Hazel & Olive. Seriously though, go and check them out, now!

This was such a fun shoot for my photographer and I! We were trying to figure out what poses and faces were best for me. I usually don't pose for shoots so she was trying to bring that "model" side out of me.

Instagram Round-Up 7.22.15

I haven't done an Instagram round-up in a while, so I figured I'd change that today. You can find me on Instagram here: @catlyonc

Sunglasses- Charming Charlie 

My mom and I have been wanting to do a few things in Boston that are just best to wait until you have a moment away from little children. Mine was finding a local coffee shop that uses real mugs and does latte art. I highly recommend popping in The Wired Puppy on Newbury Street if you are looking for the same thing!

Top- Old, similar here & here // Wallet- Kate Spade // Key chain- Esty

Duvet- Target

Scarf- Ann Taylor, similar // Shorts- J Crew, similar

While touring a friend around Boston, I made it clear that we had to stop at Amorino (which is right across from The Wired Puppy!). The staff was the sweetest and you get you gelato shaped like a rose, who doesn't want that?

While my friend was up here we decided to head to NYC for a day trip, and there was no question we would leave New York without me going to Kate Spade.

Fourth of July on the beach was definitely an experience!

These sunnies and shorts are still up for sale! Email me at if interested!

Fleece- Patagonia

Caught the sunset! 

Throwback to this post

Gotta love when your fat "puppy" hops in your lap


Shorts- American Eagle // Koozie- Etsy

Found That Summer Dress

Dress- Nordstrom Rack [similar]
Shoes- Converse
Bag- Kate Spade
Sunnies- Charming Charlie [similar]
Earrings- Old, similar
Bracelets- Charming Charlie; Altar'd State; gift, similar

One of the things I really want to stock up on this year is summer dresses. I headed to Boston a few weeks ago and stopped at the Nordstrom Rack. My eye is really catching the color white lately, which is how I found this dress in a sea of different dresses. As you can tell, it went home with me that day and I was way to excited. 

It's July 17th, y'all! Which means the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public!! If you don't know what the hype about this sale is, it's because Nordstrom takes the hottest trends and brands for this coming fall and putting them on major sale! Never have I seen a store that puts things on sale before instead of after the season, and it's the best thing ever. You can see my top picks from the #NSale here! Also, I just wanted to let y'all know that there is a sale going on at J Crew as well! The whole store is 30% off with the code GOSHOPPING and i've also linked my favorites from there down below.

Crossbody Into Clutch

Skirt- Piperlime [similar]
Shoes- Lulu's [similar]
Earrings- Old, similar
Bracelets- Charming CharlieAltar'd State; gift, similar

This Rebecca Minkoff crossbody is my favorite because you can use it with so much and in many different ways, such as a clutch. Truth be told though, the strap broke so I was kinda forced to use it as a clutch, but hey it works y'all! Oh and when one is surrounded by flowers it's only logical to pick one and put it in your hair, right? 

I hope you all are having a great week so far! My Wednesday started off with brunch with a friend, which let's face it, is the best way to get you through a week.

World Map Tank

Top- Forever 21, similar
Denim- Forever 21
Shoes- Converse
Earrings- Old, similar
Bracelets- Charming CharlieAltar'd State; gift (similar below)

This is currently my favorite shirt ever. First, it's the world map; I am obsessed with anything that has the world map on it. Seriously just ask my friends and family and they will tell you #wanderlust. Second, you are wearing pajamas. Third, this pajama top can be dressed up in every way possible. 

 There was a shoe cleaning chair for show out front of this barber's shop, so my photographer told me to hop in it for a few pictures. A few shots later the barber came out and told us to come inside for a few pictures. A little confused, we both hopped in and our mouths dropped. There were red booths and stools to sit on, but all around on the walls were sketches of famous paintings, of things such as the red sox #duh, and pictures of the oldest customer. It's things like this y'all. It's things like this that make life exciting and adventure more enthralling and enchanting 

Between finishing my high school career and working on my blog I have been inside more than I like. But it was like all of a sudden I figured out it was July and that 3 feet of snow would be back on the ground sooner than I could recite my abc's. Good grief it scared the living day out of me. I mean gosh darn it, I only have about a month left of summer air. So, I decided to get out, and it was the best decision I have ever made. I may even go to the beach later this week since there is a "heat wave" going on.

Early access for one of the biggest retail sales of the year is here! Actually it's been going on for 2 days, so if you have a Nordys debit/credit card get on this sale. If not then you will have to wait until July 16th to shop, but I am giving you a sneak peek at what to put in your cart. I've listed some of my favorite things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and oh boy like always it's an amazing sale. Like seriously, you could probably buy your entire fall wardrobe just from this sale. I'm probably going to head to a Nordstrom on Monday to check out what they have in the stores too. I would get there sooner but i've learned you don't go on or off Cape on the weekends (darn you tourist traffic!!).

Happy weekend, and thanks for reading y'all! xo
