I cannot believe that my first summer off as a teacher is already almost over! Though this is not the greatest summer as I have been working a lot, I honestly cannot complain. I have had 3 and 4 day weekends and with the amount of money, I have been able to work on clearing my credit and save up for a car. Any who, here are my highlights:
- But of course, seeing Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z at Yankee Stadium. Did I mention I also got myself tickets to see Justin at Barclay’s Center this fall?!
- A crazy amount of BBQs with my family and friends.
- Oh how I love pool days!
- My boyfriend’s new godson’s Christening. Below is a pic of him sleeping in my boyfriend’s arms, how adorable!
- Impromptue girl nights.
- Dorney Park with the family.
- Spending quality time with my boyfriend as long walks, Hibachi dinners, and so on.
And here is the rest of my summer bucket list:
- A weekend away from the city.
- I have not had a beach day, weird, as usually by now I have at least 20.
- More time with my BFF’s. (They have been MIA, I miss them!)
- Sleeping in late mornings.
- More of my highlights from above.
This past weekend I went to see Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake perform at Yankee Stadium and it was an unbelievable night. I had an amazing time. It was such a once in a lifetime experience to see these incredible power house artists perform together. And what made it even better was that JT has been my favorite musician since forever. Yes, my first concert was N’SYNC when i was twelve and since I have been to multiple JT concerts, which may hopefully include him at Barclays this November.
Anyway, I had such a difficult time figuring out what to wear to this major event. It was outside and it was in the middle of a crazy heat wave. Last minute, I went with this adorable and comfortable cut-out dress from Mandees and my new Nike Dunk Sky’s, yes, the one with the wedge heel. I loved my outfit, looking back however, I would have opted to throw my hair in a top-knot. It was HOT HOT HOT! And by the end of the night, it was beyond frizzy and oily at the same time.
What would or do you wear to a summer concert?
Believe it or not, I went years without ever organizing my room. Purses every wear, shoes galore, jewelry in random places, it was madness. I just never had the money, time or enthusiasm for it, but now having the summer off, working a second job, and feeling bad about myself every time I pin a new home decor to my Pinterest wall, I have decided to start. Soon my plan is to get to the living room with a much larger Reno with new paint and couches. Anyway most of this stuff is from target and all was CRAZY affordable
I’m considering getting a cute little vanity for that corner, but this will do for now. Like I said, I have much larger and desperate renovations for my apt on my mind
Peplum shirt: Express
Cardigan: New York and Co
Necklace: Forever 21
It’s Friday and I’m off, glad it’s the weekend too, I’m tired. I have no plans so I hope something comes up. On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind a relaxing weekend, which is something I have not had in a while.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!
They are cute and comfy and great for walking. I wear them on weekends when my boyfriend and I go for long walks, usually to sightsee in the city.
Wedge sandals: Lucky Brand
They are great for everyday or you can totally dress them up for a night out. And best of all, they are usually way more comfortable than most heals.
Colbalt Blue Color Block Platforms: Nine West
Perfect for those hot dates and girls night outings, or just when you want to feel hot and sexy
Nude Heels: DSW
Great office work attire.
Chic Flats: DSW
Another shoe that can be used as an everyday staple or if paired with the right outfit, perfect for a night out. And they are definitely the least likely to make your feet bleed.
Military Green Toms
I’ve actually begun wearing these bad boys to and from work. They have become my summer Ugg as they are comfortable and easy to throw on and go.
Flat sandals: Target
And last but not least, summer wouldn’t be complete without cute flat sandals.
What are your foot worthy summer must haves?
