Vibrant Summer Prints | Style Savvy Weekend Rewind

This past weekend, Saturday was for browsing/shopping home d├ęcor and having brunch with AB. For this casual morning endeavor, I threw on an oldie but goodie from several seasons ago. I don’t wear shorts (well---with the exception of my new love for rompers, like this one), so a midi-length, comfy, cotton dress usually works well as a replacement. 

Saturday morning - dress: GAP / flats: Steve Madden / bag: South Moon Under /
accessories: Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co, Ralph Lauren, Cruzan hook



Cracker Barrel yumminess: mixed berry pancakes with berry syrup


Cracker Barrel yumminess: fried eggs and hash brown casserole (they're mixed with onions and cheese!)

After munching on hearty country-style cooking at Cracker Barrel, AB asked me to accompany her to a “day party” event in the city that afternoon. Since we live about 25 minutes apart, I didn’t have time to run home and change. But since we were headed to Marshall’s to browse their home section, I decided to see what I could find there. I was able to put together this great outfit for less than $50. I’ve been flirting with prints in a big way this season, but this was my first dive into the tribal print trend; I also don’t normally go for espadrilles, but these bright orange Steve Madden wedges were too adorable to pass up.

Sunday was for celebrating my wonderful father with the family. My mom, younger brother, son and I all went to church with Dad, and then treated him to dinner afterward. It was a very laid back day—much like my Dad’s personality.

So this didn't happen over the weekend, but it happened, it was super yummy, and I had to share. I’d wanted to make a watermelon salad ever since I had it at a tasting for an event I was planning about a year ago. 

Arugula, watermelon, avocado, goat cheese, balsamic glaze

When I saw this recipe at The Average Girl’s Guide, I knew I'd be trying it that night. I subbed goat cheese for the feta in her salad, and added avocado--and boy was it muy delicioso!!! The perfect light summer salad, added in addition to a pre-seasoned bourbon salmon filet I picked up from the fresh market. I recommend you try it, and maybe even add your own spin!
