Alrighty y’all, it’s back to regular programming although it was fun to relive our vacation memories.  It seems like only skirts and dresses exist in my wardrobe, but I CAN be casual.  Of course, ask Mr. S and he states there’s a fine line between my casual and casualty.  He usually sees my “casual” at home after work when my hair goes into a messy top bun {what he calls sumo hair} and my comfy clothes {what he calls stretchy pants}!

Lace cut out sweater and Leather trim tank thanks to LNA // LOFT jeans // c/o Kelly Wearstler scarf {similar} // c/o DMSX Jayla boots // c/o Jami Etta earrings // Stella & Dot, thrifted, and c/o ViX suede wrap bracelets // c/o Caravelle by Bulova watch //  Chanel soft and chain bag // Ray Ban aviator sunglasses
You may have seen my instagram pics of this outfit before heading out of the house to run errands.  I love the lace cut outs on the shoulders and elbow – takes the top from plain to urbane {LOL just wanted to rhyme}!  I recently discovered LNA clothing and now am obsessed.  All of the tops are SO SOFT and have the perfect drape.  {Bonus: It’s made in sunny California!}  Don’t you love it when you discover something new and you feel like you’ve hit the jackpot?!  Another case in point, my earrings from Jami… LOTTO!
And I may have spoken too soon about nursery planning.  I need to get the adoption profile book in order first!  Cart – horse?!  Horse – cart?!
