Outfit details: Hat- Borrowed from Mom, Top- Miley Cyrus & Max Azria, Dress- Monteau, Shoes- Target
My weekends are days that I cherish. Who doesn’t cherish sleeping in & fun adventures with lovely people? We spent most of our Saturday indoors, A/C at full blast, and watching crime shows, The Big Bang Theory, and prison shows in our PJ’s. However, after a few hours of being lazy butts we decided that we needed a little bit of outdoor Summer vibes. By the looks of my outfit, I was ready to go to the beach but instead I went on a grocery run with Jon to get Pico de Gallo paletas (popsicles). Paletas are our addiction every summer along with watermelon, frozen yogurt, and iced coffee drinks.
This weekend I decided to borrow this fabulous hat from my momma. It’s such a sweet Summer piece! So perfect for the beach! My mom is definitely one of my fashion inspirations. The pieces in her closet are so classy and timeless. I blame her for my love of cardigans and shoes. Speaking of shoes, I decided to bring out my floral wedges for the first time this year. My feet are usually in closed toed shoes from Monday to Friday, so it was nice to give my feet some fresh air and a tan!
Today I went on a little adventure with Jon and my mom. We road-tripped it to the Bay Area to see where Jon will be start working soon. He’s definitely pumped and I’m so very excited for him too! We’re so motivated for the future, and are so excited for what God has in store for us. What a perfect way to end the weekend!
I am off to get recharged for tomorrow! I hope you all have an amazing and productive week! ♥
Sunday was definitely fun day. We had my nephew Levi with us this Sunday, and we had so much fun. It’s always a blast when that kiddo is around. We went to Funworks, which is like a mini golf/arcade/go kart deal. We attempted to play some putt putt golf, but it was unbearably hot outside. So we stayed in the arcade trying to get some tickets to win Levi a Cars toy he had his eye on. Lightning McQueen is his homeboy. I also found out that he loves Skee Ball just like his auntie. He was not having the kiddie games! Such a lovely day with the family. I am so blessed to have these people in my life.
So how are you all recovering from this weekend? Gosh, waking up this morning was such a challenge for me. I had gotten so used to sleeping in until 9 and staying in my PJ’s all day. It’s easy to get used to the good life. Lucky for me, there’s such thing as dry shampoo! Those extra 20 minutes of sleep made all of the difference. I definitely needed that break. Now I’m back to reality and that’s okay too. Money don’t grow on trees, and I am so blessed to have a job during these hard times.
Well this week is going to be a busy one, which should also make it a fast one. I’m looking forward to Friday. I get outta work early on Friday! Woo hoo! These are the kinds of things I look forward to all week. Anyway, I hope you all have a great week!
Funny how easy it is to forget how to do things once you haven’t done them for a while. This explains why it took me a too long to get this post together. I’m a little rusty. Not that I was ever an expert at codes and blogging at all! Since it’s a four day weekend and Jon is at work, I thought “Why not do a little bit of updating?!” I got my Cannon outta the closet, turned it on, and then thought “Uhhhh…. I know how to do this!” I had forgotten how to take pictures. What is up with my brain?! But like riding a bike, I remembered and got to snappin’. Same with this whole coding deal. I guess I’m gonna have to lessen my after-work-telly-watching sessions to stay on top of these things.
So I decided to match with the state of my skills last night, and wore rust details to warm up my gray dress. I felt like being comfortable for date night so I paired it with my Minnetonka
Booties. My Minnetonkas are my favorite. They are the comfiest shoes I own, they’re simple, cute, and they match with everything! Not much has changed when it comes to my polka dot obsession. You can add any print to a simple dress to make it pop. Polka dots just always happen to be my first choice.
I haven’t done much shopping lately, just a little bit of thrifting here and there. We’re all guilty of having something in the closet that never gets worn. I’m trying to rid myself of this bad habit and get creative with what I already own. So far I’ve been doing pretty good.
Well I’m off to do some weekend thrifting! Wish me luck!
As you guys have probably noticed, I’ve been out for quite some time. My last post was in April, and we are already in July! However, I’ve been meaning to dust off my camera and laptop to update you all. Luckily, I’ve had my iPhone at hand during these last few months! I’ve been absent on my blog, but you can’t keep me away from Instagram. I update that thing quite often. It’s just so convenient for a lazy bum like me!
Last night I stayed up late catching up with my favorite blogs, and gosh did it make me miss posting! Lately, my life has been wake up, work, eat, sleep, and repeat. What’s so interesting about that, right?! I’ve failed to notice all of the fun and eventful things that have happened in between of what I call mundane. It hasn’t been all work and no play!
Last month we made a trip to Disneyland and had a blast. We were there for the weekend with my family. I saw radiator Springs, and almost felt like I was in front of the Grand Canyon. I loved seeing my nephew’s reactions to all of his favorite characters too. Disneyland is much funner when you’re a kid or when you’re with one. Despite the long lines, I got on all of the best rides. And Of course, I overdosed on sweets while I was there. The candy apple made me do it!
Summer has made it’s grand appearance in California. I have done my fair share of complaining about the 108 degree weather, but I have been enjoying the longer days. I’ve been sporting the top knot much more than usual, and have been bringing out the Summer apparel little by little. Road trips, frozen yogurt, evening bike rides, and bright colors. I always find something to love about every season.
What’s your favorite thing about Summer?
Well I’m off to do some cleaning and then continue my lovely four day weekend. Hope you all have a wonderful one!
Outfit Details: Top- Forever 21, Skirt- Forever 21, Shoes- Franco Sarto
I know, I know! I have been M.I.A for around two weeks now, but I feel like It’s definitely time for me to get back into the swing of things here at Little Red Bowtalk. Life has been crazy busy for me these days! I have much to update you guys with!
If you guys follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have heard that I got a new job two weeks ago. I absolutely love it! I’m doing accounting for a local company and it is so much funner than I had anticipated. Who woulda thunk it?! It really is such a blessing to have finally found a job in the field that I studied. It makes me feel like all those years of school are finally paying off. I had been on the search for so long, and God opened the perfect doors for me at the perfect time as well. It’s so relieving and comforting to know that my future is in God’s hands.
At work, Friday’s are casual days so I decided to wear one of the comfiest skirts I own. I wanted to start the weekend off right! I’m also sporting some bags under my eyes due to waking up so early for work! My body is still getting used to this change. I used to be the type of person that would start on projects at about 10 p.m., but now I have no choice but to be asleep at that time! How is this night owl supposed to get anything done?!
I plan on posting more of the business casual outfits I wear during the week as well. I thought I would have had a few posted by now, but I’ve also been moving. We have finally had a chance to settle into our new place and relax from all these changes. It has been a crazy and awesome last two weeks. I’m so glad to be back! Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
Outfit Details: Dress- Victoria Secret Pink // Tights- Target // Shoes- Minnetonka
I’m back this week with another casual weekday outfit. Do you guys like my post title? Ha! I felt like such a lumberjack yesterday! I love my plaid and fringe. I wasn’t quite equipped to cut down any trees, but I was comfortable as can be.
I absolutely love dresses! I think they are so easy to style and oh so comfortable! They pretty much make an outfit, which really comes in handy when you’re on the run. Just add some accessories in the mix and you are set to go! I didn’t do too much accessorizing with this outfit. I kept it pretty simple with a pair of black tights and my Minnetonka booties. I am a big fan of tights so I wear them all year round. I know there are so many people who would love to trade me places so that they would kick their tights to the curb! I should probably give my legs some sun though or I’ll be blinding people whenever I do go bare!
♥ I found myself wearing lots of sparkles in March! I have a small collection of shiny things, and they seem to make their way into my daily outfits. Every girl loves her glitter.
♥ We went on a few small road trips this month, and early mornings on the road call for breakfast stops. Breakfast has got to be one of my favorite meals of the day, especially when it involves coffee and potatoes.
♥ Spring arrived last month and so did all the beautiful blooms! The weather has been absolutely perfect lately. During the day the sun is out to keep me warm, and at night it rains and puts me right to sleep. So perfect!
♥ As you all know, this month I did a little Little Red Bowtique update. I still have lots of pretty things available!
♥ Rigby and I have been spending more time together, and I’m starting to think he may love me as much as he loves Jon now. Yeah, we’re pretty competitive when it comes to Rigby!
♥ I love candy! I am an especially big fan of anything sour! So good. Anyway, I feel like I’ve overdosed on candy. Maybe on my April recap you will see more pictures of vegetables and fruits…. Maybe.
♥ I’m sure you can tell by my outfits that I have settled right into Spring. The first day of spring I thought it would be perfect to wear florals so I wore my floral print oxfords. I don’t own lots of floral print clothes, but these shoes will add that dash of floral that any Spring outfit will need.
♥ That last photo is of Jon and I on Easter. I’m just warning you that it’s about to get really sappy. Oh how I love my partner in crime. I really am so blessed to have such an amazing husband who is so supportive and encouraging. We are looking forward to the month of April and just the future in general. I’m so excited for the great things that are to come for us. I’m also so thankful to God and the people around us who cheer us on! We love you all so much!
