What I'm Loving Wednesday


It's Wednesday! Hump Day..and time for my favorite blog hop of the week with Jaime from http://www.littledaisymay.blogspot.com/!

So...onto what I'm loving...

it was on my summer want list...yours truly went and bought it for $150...I read that it ran big, so I bought a size down which was HUGE. It was so big it wasn't even something the tailor could take in. On a recent shopping trip with my friend, A, I begrudgingly returned it....only to browse at Banana Republic since it was 40% all sale items to spy it in a size 4.  Let's just say..I've never been a size 4 in my life...but since this dress ran ridiculously huge, a size 4 fit..still needs a little tailoring. BUT..the best part of my story as to why I LOVE this dress....it was on sale for $80..with 40% off and then the nice little Banana Republic greeter let me pick a coupon from her little Banana Republic goody bag and I nabbed an additional 25% off...so my $150 dress came down to $34...the little silver clutch I needed cost more than the dress


I'm also loving Jennifer Aniston's Fragrance from Sephora. I bought it at the beginning of the summer and it's quickly become the only thing I've been wearing..it's light, kind of beachy and not overbearing and has made me put all my other fragrances and perfumes on the back burner for now!


 
My goto summer snack...Larabar Minis. I love Larabars as they're made with all natural ingredients, no long chemical names you can't pronounce...they're made with godo stuff like cashews, dates, and dried fruit. I love the minis as they're very calorie and fat friendly and these little ones are so easy to pop in your purse and grab on the go!


 
lastly....I'm absolutely LOVING that next week is V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N. A week on Martha's Vineyard awaits us! I will be sitting on the beach, hopefully everyday, with a frosty beverage in one hand and my Kindle in the other!
