Transitional Booties


Steve Madden Peep Toe Booties via @lucismorselsThe Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening and I've already scored two pairs of shoes! As such a big Nordstrom fan, I've been patiently awaiting the arrival of the sale for a while now. I'm not ready to get into fall fashion just yet, but planning ahead and being prepared is just like me!

Homemade Pico de Gallo

Homemade Pico de Gallo Salsa via @lucismorselsBlogging is a funny business. Some bloggers are professionally trained in what they blog about (e.g. fashion and culinary training). Others have backgrounds in photography or graphic design. And there are those of us with PhDs in history who never considered themselves creative! You can guess where I fall in that lineup. While it would be great to have more help and training in all of the facets related to blogging, I really enjoy learning new things and am in shock at all of the things blogging has forced upon me in the last few years. But every once in a while, you have a chore to do that just doesn't happen easily, and yesterday was one of those times.

Peach Beach Romper

Peach Beach Romper + Huffy Bikes Beach Cruiser | Santa Monica Beach via @lucismorselsLast week, when I shared my airstream dreams, you might have noticed the cute Huffy Beach Cruiser parked in front. The Airstream was the selling point for sure, but the beach and palm tree background and the beach cruiser parked out front had me smiling like a giddy kid. This isn't quite a new bicycle under the Christmas Tree, but it's pretty close (especially given that it's July)!
