We All Shine On...

To me, summer is not "officially" here until the school year ends for the boys...now they are home all day...it is definitely summer!!

Worn to work Monday, June 4




 Jacket-Old Navy/Skirt-Calvin Klein/Shoes-UO/Necklace-present from Italy/Jewelry-H&M, Target, UO

Like my new necklace??  My mom bought it for me in Italy!!
This is pretty a typical summer outfit for me...perfect for a casual day at work or some weekend fun.  I must have these stretchy tank tops in every color of the rainbow...I even just picked up a few neon ones at Old Navy!  Throw one on with a skirt and a topper...denim, blazer, cardigan...making mornings easy...then pile on the jewelry to add some personality.

This week starts part-time stay at home mom... The boys do not start camp until next week, so I promised the boys that we could go on a picnic tomorrow....Alex reminded me that I need to bring broccoli for my lunch and pancakes for him and Jack.  Jack then told me that "we have to bring extra food and drinks for the ants...we smash them when we see them in the house, but if we are outside we have to feed them"...ok...I guess I will bring extra pancakes for the ants!

I am linking up today with the Monday Mingle!

I love this combination for summer! The bright skirt and denim jacket are adorable together. And that necklace is absolutely beautiful. It's such a statement piece. Sounds like you and the boys (and the ants) will have a wonderful time on your picnic. Bet it'll be fun to have some time with them this summer. Enjoy!

It's good to see the sun shines on your place as we are experiencing 2 continuous days of raining. Hate to go outside but I have to drop my kids to school. Anyway, I love the pastel color of your skirt. So chic and flirty!
