I don’t want July to go! This past week has been picture perfect weather in our neck of the woods and I want it to hang around! Usually around now, my mind kind of starts to wonder to Fall but I’m really enjoying soaking up the summer! I got to experience one of my favorite things of summer this week which was the heirloom tomato bruschetta at a local Italian joint called Venturi. I had missed out on it last year, so it was worth the two-year wait! 

1. Polka Dot Wedges
The polka dot shoes in the title picture up there are a huge re-pin on Pinterest. So, I thought it be fun to find a few more pairs and I am in love! They are all so stinking cute and many of them are on sale for half off this time of year! With lots of summer yet to go, this is a good time to buy sandals!

How much did y'all love the BLANKETS I shared last week? Still on Sale for $25.90!
OK, OK, I admit in my top paragraph, I did mention that I didn’t really have Fall on the brain yet but because of Blogger peer pressure, I did succumb to the Nordstrom sale by buying two different boots that I think are winners! I had to share them as I think you’ll see similar styles to both a lot this season. I’ve also linked up some other options and some less expensive options. I love the pointed toe of the tall suede ones and I’m so excited to pair the snakeskin ones with lots of blush pink!

How cute are these polka dot shorts? Throw in a ruffle hem and pockets, and I’m totally sold! I just love the bowtie waist as well! Easy to dress up or down, I chose a simple black tee and some heels for one of our dinners on vacation! They look super cute with flats too.

  1. I love all the polka dots in this post, Andrea! I feel so conflicted -- it's hard to believe July is almost over and I'm not ready for summer to be over, but I am ready for cooler temperatures. It's been a hot summer! I'm all about the snakeskin trend this fall and those boots are fab! Have a great weekend!

  3. We ate lots of ice cream on our weekend trip; it was really hot and just perfect for cooling off! I have a few of those zippered blankets (not in pineapple though) and just love them. I keep them in the car and use them at the beach and park.

  4. Love me some polka dots! That ice cream cone!!

  5. Your red polka dot shoes are super cute! I was so ready for fall when I had convinced myself I was staying in MN. Now that I'm going back to Houston & it won't even be down in the 80s until October, bring on all the ice cream because summer is never going to end! lol Happy Friday!

  6. I just love those polka dot shorts and oh my goodness the wedges, so darling. You always have the best, cutest and most chic outfits. I love gift bags too- so so fun! Hope you have the best weekend my gorgeous friend!

  10. Gimme all the polka dots! I love them, too! Is that really YOU wearing those red and white polka dot wedges? Oh my gosh, girl! I would fall and break my neck for sure. I use to laugh at my mom when I was in my late high school years and early college because my mom quit wearing heels to work because she was scared she would fall or she just simply couldn't wear them anymore. I can't remember the last time I wore a pair of heels, but I do like wedges and wear them alot! Just not as TALL as yours, Girlie! Have a wonderful weekend, Babe!

  11. What a fun post and I too love the polka dot wedges and shorts. Enjoy the weekend.

  13. How cute are those wedges! I have a pair of navy wedges with polka dots and they have such a fun, summery vibe. Hope you enjoy your weekend, lovely!

  14. You are on a polka dot kick and I love it Andrea!! And seeing your snakeskin booties makes me glad I bought a pair at the end of last season. I wasn't sure how much I'd wear them, but I'm seeing them everywhere now!!

  15. I'm still holding out and have not gone on the Nordstrom site, but I have a slight obsession with shoes and may break down soon! Those polka dot wedges are darling and I love your new boots! Have a wonderful weekend!
