Sweet Moments

02 Holding onto the last bits of summer

This week is certainly flying by. I am so excited for the three day weekend coming up! I don’t have any plans, but it will be certainly nice to have a day off from work. And even though it means that summer is off icily coming to an end, I am very excited for the fall!03

This summer, I wore more dresses and skirts than ever before. Usually I stick with my denim cutoffs or any shorts for that matter. But I had fun pairing blouses over my dresses and turning them into skirts. Can I also mention how amazing this view is?! I am not a huge fan of Arizona, but some areas are so beautiful with the mountains with the sun shining over in the late afternoon.

2. Foley & Corinna Tassel Charmer ~ $250
3. Calypso St. Barth Zebra Print Scarf ~ $275
4. Victoria Beckham Belted Safari Dress ~ $294
5. Henri Bendel Safari Chic Flex Bracelet ~ $99
6. Super Sunglasses Basic Wayfarer ~ $189
7. ModCloth Safari Finesse Hat ~ $40

Croque Madame

001

When I was in Paris this past May, I enjoyed classic French foods from crepes to macarons and delicious baguette sandwiches. One particlar item that I wished I could have while there was a croque madame. So I deceided to make one at home. This is probably one of the most amazing sandwiches ever (using this recipe)! the spread that I made certainly is unique and the classic egg on top is the perfect topping.

Tweedily-Dee

At work, the attire is business casual, except for dress down Friday’s. But there are some days that you need to step up your game. That’s how I feel about tweed skirts. They are stylish and comfortable. With a white blouse, and a pair of heels that pop with color, it makes a dressy work ensemble a little more fun!
