lighten and brighten

In celebration of the warm weather and newly sunkissed skin we've been experiencing...

J. Crew sweater & neon shirt with Banana Republic pendant -paired with old jeans & Target sandals.  Laid back outfit for an outdoor dinner with Brandon at Red's Icehouse.

Banana Republic scarf, cami, and belt -paired with Express maxi skirt & Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals

bright weather calls for a bright mani.  
OPI "Cajun Shrimp"

which obviously calls for brighter hair, too:

My office flooded this week, so we've been out of commission.  No, not a natural disaster, we just had a faulty hot water heater that decided to leak all over our office throughout the weekend.  This means that I've gotten to wear fun outfits like this in the middle of the week.  
The shorts are J. Crew.  I love them because the material doesn't hold wrinkles hardly at all.  Most shorts look awful by the end of the day because they have so many creases from sitting down throughout the day.  The top is from Banana Republic last year.

This also means that I've gotten to get things done like...  wash/vacuum car, get hair highlighted, organize purse, go to bank, take a mid-week browse at TJ Maxx, go to Zumba class, wander around Whole Foods, sweep the house, finally find my license plate tags that should've been stuck on there in December, get some sun while doing 30 minutes of cardio on the path behind my house, organize my vanity...  all of the things I never have time want to do when I get home from work in the evenings.  We are always so busy on the weekends, I feel like I never have "chore" time!  (Not always a bad thing, but makes me feel very behind a lot of the time.)

And because the Masters make me happy...
Brandon went to the practice round today and brought me back this cute hat.
I love, love, love hats for working out outdoors, going out on the boat, etc.

That's all I've got for tonight.  See you loves tomorrow!
