Hello World! Here we are at the beginning of August! Can you believe it? The Summer has flown by. I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend consisted of shopping and some pool time. You can check out my shopping experience here on Instagram. There is a funny story about the purchase that I will share soon on the blog. But, for now, it’s time to see what you pretties have been up to.
Welcome to Week 186 of:
I loved this post from Passementaries about dressing well on a budget. Purses, shoes, and scarves are a staple in my closet. However, the scarves don’t come out until cooler temperatures arrive. And, I just kind of love this picture of Coco Chanel.
Lolly Jane shared an easy tutorial for a monogram stencil backpack makeover. How fun! Pay a visit to check out all the details.
Don’t you love finding old, ugly things in thrift stores and then giving them a fresh update? That’s what Surroundings by Debi did with this sweet, little crate update. Fly on over to see the before.

An Extraordinary Day brought her Chicken Salad with Roasted Strawberries recipe to the party. This would make such a delicious Summer lunch…by the pool!
Perfect for a Summer dessert is this recipe for Strawberry Shortcake from Unusually Lovely. Doesn’t this look scrumptious?

With the start of school just around the corner, Pink Fortitude has a round-up of 7 Industrial Style Farmhouse Command Centers. The one above is from Pottery Barn.
