instagram style lately!

My Instagram round up posts are always one of the most popular around here... it's fun to see all my favorite Instagram shots in one place! Summer is just flying by and to be honest, I don't feel like I have been the best Instagrammer lately - oops.  This month was full of summer fun, stripes and easy outfits... here's a glance at it:


My summer isn't complete without a twist cone with sprinkles.  Thankfully I can check this one off the list... ;) (similar or similar striped top)


I'm officially obsessed with this bag from the Nordstrom sale. It's the perfect size with butter soft leather and I'm trying to figure out if owning two would be overboard (yes, no, yes!?!?).  The key to large totes is having a few pockets, the large inside and outside pocket insure that this bigger bag doesn't become a black hole. (bag, sunglasses)


Snuggly new pj pants (similar) that are making me very happy! You can read all my book reviews for the month here - including this book!


This striped top and sunflowers made me very happy this month!


I snagged a few new back to school shoes for my kiddos... these sneakers for my son, these sneaks for my daughter and whoa! These boots were a major deal for my daughter too!


My first experience with Golden Milk and I'm hooked (if you want to make it at home I picked this up and it's great!).  (similar or similar dress, bag)


This top is the perfect date night look!  I can't seem to get enough gingham lately. (similar or similar top, jeans, bagsunglasses, sandals)


We happened upon this amazing field of sunflowers recently! I mean, how gorgeous! This was definitely one of the highlights of our summer. (similar cardigan, tank, jeans, sunglasses)

Well June just FLEW by... I mean seriously!  Any one else have some seasonal whiplash here? I thought the summer was just starting and now it feels half over. Which is a good reminder to be soaking it up as much as possible I suppose.  We had a beautiful month weather-wise but some of the cooler days made my outfits seem more spring-like than summer-like, which you can see here.  So June was all about lightweight layers.  I had a blast rounding up these Instagram looks today... it was a GOOD month!  Make sure you follow along on Instagram to see all my looks there and follow along with my silly/snarky/borderline boring "stories" there!

This gingham top is SO cute and fun, you can see me wearing it here.  Shop the pieces: top, shorts, fun iPhone case, earrings

This is what I consider the perfect soccer-mom look... we are always on the go for soccer in the summer and this sweatshirt is perfect for chilly mornings! Shop the pieces: sweatshirt, jeans, sunglasses, sandals

Have you tried the ombre pink drink at Starbucks!?!? So cute! These three pieces have been getting TONS of wear lately! Shop the pieces: sandalsshorts, top

This ruffle sleeve top is EVERYTHING.  And yes, I can't stop wearing these shorts! Shop the pieces: topshorts, sandals - on sale!, bag (or check here for the bag for less!)

We have loved enjoying the lakeshore this summer! This one-shoulder suit and cover up have been in heavy rotation!

Blue hydrangeas and classics totes are exactly what summer is about... no? My bag is old, but this is the newer version.  It's so classic and simple.

I'm loving this easy striped tie-back top AND it's on super sale! Check it out here!

I love an easy summer sweater... it's perfect for nights out after long days in the sun!  Shop the pieces: sweater - on sale!, jeans, bag, sandals
