All these “fall transition” posts on different blogs are making me a little depressed. I may love the weather in the fall, but I am definitely sad to see summer go. I figure it’s better to jump on the ban-wagon then to resist change. So in that spirit, how perfect is this jumpsuit as a transitional piece? I wore it on a cooler night out with sandals and a linen blazer, but I also think it would be perfect with booties and a light-weight scarf. What are your favorite things to wear in early fall? Have a great long weekend! xo
Today I’m joining up with some lovely ladies to bring you an exciting giveaway! Fall is probably the season when I shop the most. I love getting ready to go back to work with new clothes, and the change in weather makes me want to load up on cute cardigans and boots. Today I’m bringing you the chance to win a $200 giftcard to Nordstrom. Nordstrom already has some great pieces for fall, like this plaid shirt and this oversized knit. Make sure you enter the giveaway using the rafflecopter below. Good luck and happy Monday! xo
Today marks the two year birthday of Sweetest Somethings! It’s been such a great experience to write this blog over the past two years. I love the connection with others, and all of your support and feedback has been amazing. I didn’t know what this space would turn into when I started it, and I’ve loved seeing how it’s evolved over time. I look forward to sharing more with you all, and continuing to grow in this community. Thanks a million for all your support! xo
I bought these white pumps for my rehearsal dinner and haven’t stopped wearing them all summer. They’re prefect to dress up something more casual, like this Anthropologie top and distressed denim. This top has an adorable ruffle detail on the back, which I forgot to take pictures of! Blogging can be tough somethings. I also love that it can be worn out casually or also to work because of it’s high neckline. I’m trying to stock up on transitional pieces since it’s almost fall, but I can’t stop buying white. Oh summer, please don’t go.
These are the last of my pics from our honeymoon in Hawaii. They are also probably my favorite and the most beautiful pictures from the trip. The last two days we took a cruise to the Na Pali coast and drove through Waimea Canyon. Both were absolutely breathtaking and my favorite activities during our time in Kauai. The cruise was five hours long and we got to snorkel and see all parts of the coast that you can only see by boat.
Hawaii was such an amazing place and the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. I wish I could go back every year (too bad it is so far from the east coast). If anyone is visiting Hawaii anytime soon let me know! I’d be happy to answer any questions or give recommendations! xo
PS- First dress os Gypsy05 and the second is Zara. Bikini is from H&M!
This post could also be called “yay! finally a recipe!”, but I decided to stick with the recipe name. I made this yummy salad last week and finally had enough time to snap some pictures as I was cooking. I love making a pasta salad in the summer months using fresh raw corn and heirloom tomatos. I decided to make it, but instead of pasta I used a vegetable peeler to thinly slice a zucchini and used that instead. It was delicious, fresh, and super healthy! Recipe is below. Enjoy and have a great weekend. xo
Ingredients for the salad: fresh corn, yellow and green squash, heirloom tomatos, shredded carrots, and feta cheese.
Make a light dressing for the salad using mustard, honey, lemon juice and zest, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Using a vegetable peeler thinly slice the zucchini into strips. Place strips into a strainer and allow it to drain for 30 minutes. Combine all your ingredients in a bowl, serve, and enjoy!
This dress is one of my favorites from last summer. I love the print, and thought it was perfect for dinner in a tropical location. I wore it out on the last night of our honeymoon when we had dinner overlooking the water and the sunset. I also lived in this sunhat I borrowed from my friend for the trip. It kept me protected from the sun when we were laying by the beach and dining outside. I also love these hats (one, two) for hot weather!
