Summer’s pretty much upon us in Florida, and it’s my favorite time of year. I really enjoyed Hands Free Mama’s post about unplugging to make simple lasting memories with your loved ones during the season.
On a recent trip to TJ Maxx, a pair of palm print cropped chinos got me all introspective about my ‘style journey’ over the last several years. 2012 Keira would’ve bought them without hesitation — they were cute and inexpensive, and all the other bloggers are wearing palm prints for spring/summer — but 30 year old ‘practical’ Keira reasoned that I’d likely only wear them once and the $25 was better off in my wallet. I’m totally growing up, you guys! ;) (See also: My Grown-Lady Shopping Rules.)
Maybe I can indulge in the palm print trend with a cute swimsuit? Like this one-piece from Forever 21.
To all the fellow day planner addicts in the place: I loved my original Day Designer last year, but it was nearing the last month and I wanted something a bit more portable. This time I opted for the ‘Today & To-Do mini planner; she’s like the Day Designer’s little sister with over 300 non-dated daily planning pages, each featuring the signature schedule/to-do list combo. I think I may actually prefer it to the original!
Who What Wear says every girl in NYC is wearing this Zara crop top and high-waisted cropped pant combo. I wish they made it in every color; it just looks so chic and easy!
Ingrid Nilsen has some easy ideas for staying cool this summer with a few easy drink recipes. I need to get my hands on a giant ice cube try, STAT.
