Almost summer. Almost.

Old-Navy-Summer-1

a) Why oh why couldn’t I have gotten my nails done prior to these pics being taken? It’s killing me softly.

b) The pics in this post are hilarious to me. Here’s Chase playing with Jack and looking like a completely adorable, attentive, dreamboat husband and father, and then don’t worry – I’m just over here on my phone. NBD. Haha! You guys! I swear it’s not like that in the real life – ok? I couldn’t take a good picture for the life of me during this photo shoot. Tragedy.

A Whole Bunch of Ways to Wear White Jeans

Tory-Burch-Handbag-4

So is my evident obsession with this pair of white jeans getting awkward? Based on the fact that they make an appearance on either the blog or Insta about once a week (which reads I’m wearing them at least twice a week and just not posting pics of the other times out of shame), I’d say Yass: we’re starting to feel uncomfortable about it.

Chicwish Florals and Some Melodrama

Floral-pencil-skirt-Chicwish-2

Let me just apologize right off the bat for the fact that I’m about to make you victims of the most random, melodramatic post of all time. I have things on my mind. You guys, the massive earthquake in Nepal – did you donate to any relief efforts for that? I didn’t, and it’s really, really bugging me.┬áIf you have any suggestions for meaningful ways to contribute to that or good places to donate to, will you please share? Please please please. And thank you.

Another thing: I have a blogging friend who some (or lots) of you may know, who recently found out that her husband has stage 4 Melanoma cancer. She is 8 months pregnant with her 5th child. Sigh – can you even imagine?

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale!

SHOP THE SALE HANDBAGS SHOES CLOTHES Yep – it’s that time. The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is here people! This has been my strategy for awhile now guys: I keep an ongoing list of things that I want to add to my closet or that I’ve had my eye on. I also keep an ongoing list of ‘investment pieces’ I’m interested in (i.e. nicer handbags, a super classic, well-made pair of heels, etc.). Then, I wait until my favorite retailers who sell things like that are having their huge sales…. i.e. Nordstrom… i.e. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES… and then that’s when I buy. I basically never, ever buy my nicer items at full price, cuz why would you when you can hold out and then get them for a significant discount? Example: this would be an excellent time to pull the trigger on getting a super classic, nicer…

All Gray Every Day

Chic-Wish-Coat-C

Ok people – let’s cut to the chase and talk about the only thing that anyone really cares about right now: did you all watch The Bachelorette last night?! Am I a teensy bit embarrassed to admit that I definitely did watch the Bachelorette last night? I tell ya what – I made it through all of my college/early-marital years with no interest in these types of shows and then on a dare (or something) I watched like one episode a few seasons back, and it was all over from there.
