Keeping Up with the Cardigans

{Ocean Isle Beach, NC}

In anticipation for this short and carefree weekend, I'm heading east to OIB (Ocean Isle Beach), located in Wilmington, NC. I'm looking forward to soaking up the sun, jumping in the refreshing waves, tanning, walking along the pier, and spending the whole day out on the beach with the family that I love. And most importantly, hoping that the forecast is wrong and the thunderstorms will disappear. Come on weather, can I just please enjoy one hot summer night without a dark grey cloud in the sky?

Loving things for the moment:
{Refreshing fruit smoothies that taste as alluring as none other once you take a sip.}
 {I can't get enough of her crisp and classy blazer. I've always wanted to try a blazer with high-waisted shorts. I should make a mental note of that.}
 {My three favorite nail polishes as of now. 
Coral & gold combo on my nails, dark blue & gold combo on my toes.}
 {Beautiful Milly dress I found at Fabulous Finds Boutique downtown yesterday. 
There wasn't one in my size unfortunately.}
 {Whimsical dresses/tops at Fabulous Finds Boutique. The sparkly dress on the right was a charmer.}
 {Last macaroon at the Daily Grind Café.}
 {In dire need of a one-shoulder dress. This black one is HOT HOT.}
 {I cannot contain my excitement to see the Big Apple in a couple of weeks!}
{Despite that it's still summer, I like to keep myself alert with outfits for fall: cardigans, floral skirts, tights. 
My kind of outfit.}
{There's nothing I love more than drinking hot tea while reading a classic book on a beautiful summer morning.}

How are you planning on spending your relaxing or not-so-relaxing weekend?
