There are too many photos in this post for such a simple and laid back outfit. I know. But this bra/tank combination is my go-to right now, so I feel the need and desire to share so many photos of it with you! Ever since watching Sex & the City the first time around, seeing Carrie's bra straps (or lack of bra) in every episode, I've largely stopped caring about mine showing. And when the straps are as beautiful and elegant as this black lace piece, you just can't blame me! This bralette is actually a few years old and Wacoal doesn't seem to make anything similar at the moment, but Free People always has a great selection of bralettes and camisoles. This black lace one is similar to mine, but it has such beautiful detail, I really want to add it to my wardrobe! Don't you?

I'm checking out for the Fourth of July weekend. T has tomorrow off and we're heading to the beach for Winston the White Corgi's Birthday Bash with our neighbors and friends. Fingers crossed I come home without any tan lines that will mess up my wedding dress situation. And then we're prepping for our annual trip to the Eastern Sierras. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Coconut Sweet Potato Muffins

Coconut Sweet Potato Muffins | Luci's Morsels :: LA Food Blog
One of the great things about blogging and freelancing is that you meet and become friends with people who might not have otherwise met. We can't get together for coffee dates and dinner parties, but we have our own ways of have "get-togethers." Today, for example, I'm participating in my first e-shower with fellow food bloggers and it's for a dear blogging friend of mine - Zainab of Blahnik Baker. Zainab is one of the sweetest people I know - always ready to chat and help whenever she can! The fact that she's a PhD student was what initially bonded us, but now we chat about everything from our love of coconut and fashion to siblings (she's from a huge family too). She and her husband Justin are expecting their first baby next month, so we've been debriefing each other on countdowns, registries, and to-do lists for our respective events this summer! I've nicknamed their baby boy Lil J.Z. I secretly hope it sticks because I think it's hilarious! To celebrate such a momentous occasion, a huge group of food blogger friends of Zainab have posted recipes today as an e-shower to celebrate the new addition to the family! There are links to each blogger and recipe below the jump - get ready for  A LOT of coconut! And if you need me today, I'll be salivating, commenting, and pinning each of these delicious recipes...

At the Movies

1. State Gingham Top :: ASTR Leather Midi Skirt (similar)

I warned you last week with this outfit that I'd be wearing this shirt a lot this summer. It's just so cute and comfortable. I usually try to avoid wearing loose tops and bottoms together, but I think the details and cuteness factor outweigh any possible frumpiness. And I'm still loving these wedges. They're available in about five colors and I secretly (well not any more) want them all! The immediate comfort of these wedges has me loving all of her designs and I'm very intrigued at her new comfortable 4-inch heel. I'll be the judge of that, but boy am I ready to start testing them out!
