Stripes, Shoes and Blogging Space

07/29/11
I'm sporting just another casual Friday outfit today.  I feel like I'm in a bit of a style rut lately, but it's just so easy to get dressed in cotton knits and simple outfits in the summer.

Earring close-up
I absolutely love these earrings.  I picked them up at my favorite neighborhood boutique while popping in to buy a few birthday cards the other day.  And while we're talking about accessories, you know those comfy black wedge sandals that I feel like I've worn all summer?  See herehere and here. They're on sale for $25 today on the Aerosoles site!  Just passing it on, since they're super comfortable and versatile, and they come in other colors.  I'm considering ordering a pair in red because they're so great.  You can see this link for details.

Tee: Loft
Skirt: Old Navy
Shoes: Puma
Earrings: Hazel

Blogging space
I'm not a regular participant in Friend Friday, but after seeing this week's over on MinnChic, it was hard to pass up.  This is where I do my blogging.  And my working from home, since I don't really have an office set up.  I had wanted to get a desk to put out on our sun porch but eh, for now the couch works.

  1. I like the earrings!  Your logging space looks pretty similar to mine; comfy couch, laptop, cute dog.

  2. I love your blogging space. It looks super comfy. I do mine in the kitchen or in my "office," not really comfy, but if it's too comfy, I tend to fall asleep :) 

    Your earrings are gorgeous. I really love drop earrings, and it adds a lot to your really casual outfit, which, hey, is totally acceptable for summer blogging. I've been thinking about how I dress much better in the colder months compared to the summer/spring. And it's all about what I feel comfy in. I'm just hoping it cools down a LOT soon so I can actually start dressing up!

  3. I know what you mean. Fall is my favorite time of year in general, and definitely style-wise. I think I miss being able to layer the most.

  5. It's actually kind of interesting to see how everyone's dealing with the miserable heat.  You look good, and I really like those earrings.  And, the best blogging space always involves a fuzzy pet.

    Those earrings are fabulous.  And I'm feeling you about being in a style rut lately.  It's not even that hot here, but my brain has apparently left for summer vacation.  I can't find anything to wear lately.

  7. Those are really pretty earrings - I love em! Summer is all about simple dressing and I think you look fab. Also, a dog is a great addition to any work/blogging space ;)

  8. Those earrings are a lovely choice. Also, it kind of looks like Kameka (that's her, right? Jude's harness is not black. . .) is dialed in for the blogging time, too!

  9. Jude's harness is black - it's slimming and versatile, which he loves. Kameko's got a bright purple harness, since she loves rocking bold colors like me.

  11. Sometimes I wish my awesome local boutique weren't a block away because I give them way too much of my money!  But that said, check out Hazel on Montrose sometime if you want fun new jewelry :)

  14. Love the earrings as well!  And I love how Jude likes to be involved in all the steps of the blogging process!  The mini FR is so over blogging right now.

  15. Ha, I think if I had a blogging space like this that I would promptly curl up and go to sleep!  I must be sitting up on a hard chair!

  17. In this kind of wretchedly hot weather, cute tops, skirts and dresses are all you need. That's why we scoop them up while we can!
