Striped Open-Back Top

When I ordered this striped open-back sleeveless top from Nordstrom Rack, I had in my mind that I would wear cute bralettes underneath whenever I wore it. Well, I was pleasantly surprised when I received the tops  (I picked this top up in the white with black stripes and one in navy blue with white…

Photo Challenge: Rare

Today is my last [week] day of summer break before I go back to work. How is the summer over already?! I’m not ready! So on my last Friday of summer break, I have a photo from my summer vacation to Alaska to share for this week’s photo challenge. The challenge was “Rare” and I…

Peplum Cami

I can’t believe I only have 2 [week] days left to my summer break! It really passed by in the blink of an eye. I’m having a hard time accepting this fact and I think I’m in denial that I go back to work for a week of workshops bright and early Monday. But let’s…

Martino’s Cuban Restaurant

I always enjoy trying new (or new to me) restaurants, mainly because eating is one of my favorite pastimes. I recently went to Martino’s Cuban Restaurant and enjoyed my dinner there in the small, family owned & run restaurant. According to their website, Martino – the owner and namesake – opened the restaurant in 1992 with the…

Prints Charming: A Shorts Story

  Prints Charming: A Shorts Story by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring a bangle bracelet I personally don’t own any Lilly Pulitzer items, but if we’re talking about prints and shorts with prints for that matter then it is a brand that must be considered. I chose these shorts in the classic Lilly Pulitzer colors and print, which shows…

Sweet Floral Print Dress

So by now, even if you’re relatively new to my blog, you probably have come to realize that my favorite print is floral. I just love it and I rarely see a floral print that I do not like. The all-over floral print on this white dress may seem a little busy to some, but…

Rio Olympics Closing Ceremony

The closing ceremony for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio was last night and you know I love the Olympics. For real, it is a bucket list item for me to one day attend the Olympics and see some of these events in person. Since I wrote about the opening ceremony I thought it only right to…

Book Review: The Girl on the Train

Some of you may have already read Paula Hawins’ The Girl on the Train, but I just got around to reading it this summer in time for the movie’s release this fall. When I first heard about the novel, I heard some comparisons to Gone Girl, which I enjoyed because it was one of the first books…

Floral Fringed Kimono

Combine the color teal, a floral print, and fringe – roll them all into one kimono and that’s basically how I was immediately sold on this kimono. The print is so pretty and the color combination works so well together. Kimono: Just Lex Boutique | Romper: H&M Fringe detailing is so fun and I love that…

Quay Australia “Fleur” Sunnies

Quay Australia is a sunglasses brand that I’ve heard about for a while now – at least one or two years. The glasses always look so chic and fun so this summer I picked up two. One called “Circus Life” which you may have seen me wear in this post .  The other pair that I’ve been…

Straw Bags

  Carry On: Straw Bags by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring photography wall art I think straw bags are a summer staple for many of us. Depending on the size, they can be the perfect tote bag to pair with your summer ensemble or a small bag to carry your necessities for a day out. They also make…

Photo Challenge: Fun!

This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Fun!” and I had a photo in mind right away. It’s not the picture I ended up choosing, but it is from the same place and may have even been taken on the same day. The photo I dug out of my photo archives is from…
