Blue, White, and Taupe

The end of summer is approaching, so I’m trying to make the most of my white denim jeans while I can. White denim is such an easy way to spruce up a basic t-shirt and jeans outfit… although I have to admit that whenever I wear white denim I think of this hilarious skit. :P

Hope you are having a great week!  I’m looking forward to a long weekend getaway… our girls start first grade next week, so it will be our last summer hurrah.  :)  Do you have any plans for the upcoming Labor Day weekend?

Distressed Denim

For a while I was on the fence about distressed denim, but it’s grown on me over time… as long as it’s not TOO distressed. These denim shorts from Old Navy have been a staple for me this summer, and the necklace I’m wearing is my favorite find from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale… there are lots of great deals if you haven’t checked it out already!

Summer is about half way over for my daughters and they are really enjoying it so far. We recently went on a family vacation to Brasada Ranch in central Oregon… this was the cabin we stayed in during our visit. We did some biking and played a little tennis and volleyball but ended up spending most of our time at the pool. :)

One afternoon I went on a trail run/hike to a place called Spirit Rock… the desert view was really pretty!
