Houndstooth


 Today I was trying to think of what my "go to" outfit was for the summer.  If have to tell you, I think it is a bathing suit and a sunburn.  I didn't even put on a bathing suit last year and this year I have worth them A LOT.  I have loved it.  Most days my laundry pile consists of a million towels and our bathing suits. 
 But some days I like to dress up a bit.  When I was in California this past weekend I took pictures of my little sister and her husband for their 1 year anniversary.  We did them in an orange grove and I was a bit wrinkled at the end because I am all over the place when I take pictures.
 The Olympic coverage has begun!!  We are planning a little party with some friends to watch the opening ceremonies this Friday and tonight Josh and I are watching a rerun of the U.S. vs France soccer game that happened earlier today.  I really do foresee us being total couch potatoes during the Olympics.
 We went to England a few summers ago and fell in love with that country, so it has been so fun to keep seeing different places in London that we loved.

  5. Love this outfit! My go to outfit this summer is a bathing suit also. I've been all over the place this summer with only a few weeks between each vacation or beach trip. Living in Orlando it's hard NOT to be at the beach often :) Other than that, I've found I love a good maxi skirt or dress. Love the pics and this outfit is great, the teal looks amazing with the houndstooth pants.

  23. Yay for houndstooth! My family are huge Alabama (Roll Tide) fans so most of my sister's wardrobe is crimson and houndstooth. :)
