I can’t believe we are mere days away from the official end of summer. I’m not going to be all “Ohhh my how the time has flown! Where did the summer go?” But seriously. WHERE IN SAM HILL DID THE SUMMER GO? My gracious.


Ever since I got this layered tank in my July fix, it has been one of my absolute favorite tops to wear this summer. It’s so light and airy and flowy and comfortable and it’s easy to nurse in (#keepingitreal) and I can wear it with jeans (of many colors!) and I can wear it with shorts and I can wear it with a maxi skirt and I just love it. I will stop gushing, but I will also say that I definitely plan to take this tank into the fall as well… it’s one that will be really easy to just throw a denim jacket or a cardigan over and boom… you have fall attire.

Let’s talk about these earrings.

The oh-so-fantastic Kathleen from House of Polynesia sent me two GORRRRGEOUS pairs of earrings from her shop and I love them. She makes the most beautiful jewelry. I wish I was talented with something like jewelry making or some craft… I always have a little bit of envy for people who have a knack for something like that. (Use code “MOLLY15″ for 15% off your order!!”

Anyway, while I am, quite honestly, not prone to wearing dangly earrings ALL the time (mainly because Lilly will RIP THEM OUT), I do LOVE to wear them on occasion… to a special event, on a date night, or just when I’m out by myself and I want to feel a little dressed up.

There’s just something about wearing a gorgeous pair of hoops or statement earrings that makes me feel all fancy like. Am I the only one?

Also, I will totally own up to the fact that you can see the remnants in my ears of when I had a bajillion piercings. It is weird for me to think that there was a time in my life when I had 10 piercings. TEN. I had eight in my ears (four on each side), my nose pierced, and my belly button pierced. It was a youthful phase that I am clearly out of.

The nose ring lasted all of about eight months my sophomore year of college until it fell out one night in my sleep. It hurt so bad to get it done the first time that I refused to get it done again. The belly button ring I got for my 15th birthday (my mom took me! WHAT?! It’s true. haha!) and I took it out I think four or five years ago. Basically right around the time I stopped wearing two piece bathing suits.

Now I just wear two earrings in two holes in my ears.

Was this too much information for you? Probably. Oh well, I started rambling and went on a somewhat related tangent and divulged a weird fact about me.

Please do not judge me.


Also, this photo below, I strangely like it while I also think it looks like I’m about to hit on a shrub or something… like, “Hey there shrub! How YOU doin’?

I’m all over the place today, aren’t I?
ANYWAY! Back to the subject at hand. The FABULOUS Kathleen is giving TWO pairs of earrings away (YOUR CHOICE!!) to one of my lucky readers. So, be sure to enter below and be sure to check out her shop… her jewelry is absolutely gorgeous.
