Funny thing about the word staples…not everyone uses it or has heard of it. In case you don’t or haven’t, staples are things you buy every time you go to the grocery store or constantly keep on hand like eggs, milk, butter, flour, sugar, etc.  For me, the staples of summer are cutoff shorts, white t-shirts, and flip flops, the easy pieces you wear in rotation. Lately though, I have been loving the idea of jazzed up staples, like a denim vest or a lace t-shirt to make casual and easy look ever slightly so put together.  I loves me some effortless with a tiny tinge of put together, in clothes and in life in general.




Daydreaming: Beach Cabin Getaway

I am seriously DYING for a vacation.  Between Sean’s rigorous paramedic school/real life working schedule, I feel like its been a really long time since we have been able to take an honest to goodness string of days off to go somewhere.  And if he gets hired on a fire department full time, it could be another year of probation and not being able to take time off.  I’m really hoping there is a week or two in between for some kind of getaway.  I would be so happy with just stealing away with all of my favorite people, a blender, & a swimsuit and heading to a cute little cabin on the beach like this for couple days.  I’d spend my days sleeping in and waking up to the sound of the waves, alternate between reading, swimming,  and sleeping in the sun during the afternoon, consume way too many calories in fruity blended drinks, and play cards every night. Its perfection!  Whose ready to go???
