A Perfect Day

Last Sunday was the perfect day, well almost, short of winning the lottery.  The sun was blaring bright and I indulged in my two favorite past times, pool lounging and reading.  I spent the first five hours of the day horizontal on my raft surrounded by water, daydreaming, and jamming out to my tunes.  (btw, loving the beat and lyrics in Katy Perry’s new jam, Wide Awake-take that RB!).  Just short of a sun poisoning episode, I called it quits under the brightest star and had a location change (of course wardrobe, too) to the quintessential symbol of summer leisure...a shaded porch swing.  There, surrounded by purple flowers (seen below), and protected from the rays I caught up on Elle, InStyle, Bernstein, and yes duh.... Us Weekly.  With a little R&R under my belt I’m ready to kick ass this week.  Watch out world here I come :)










 And now after a hard day's work..... off to the pool with my favorite accessory.....hello raft time!  "Jump  in.  Make a splash.  Today is the day" ~ Zadra and Yamada


Top - Aritzia Bergen Blouse
Skirt - BCBG Valeria
Michael Kors Gia Clutch
Shoes - Guess (also seen here)
Sunnies - Prada Baroque
Bracelets - BCBG, Anthro, BR

  40. Ahhhhhhdore this clutch. It's the perfect bright pop of color, without being too obnoxious. Really love the texture of it as well - and it's so classy and cute and summery. Just ideal.

    Those shoes are amazing! The cutout is really unique, and I haven't seen anything like them before.

    Glad you got to relax and take in the sun. Sounds like an amazing time. Love reading magazine - always relaxes me and clears my mind of annoying responsibilities, haha.
