Thursday Threads: White Summer Pants

Few things say "summer" like a great pair of white pants. Here are some of my favorite white pant finds so far this summer. Have you found any white pants you adore?
These are some of my new favorite finds. I actually wore them yesterday, they are fantastic. Brought to you by our friends at Old Navy, these comfortable cigarette pants are on sale for $30! I wore it with a tunic, but you can wear them with any summer staple like a gingham shirt or navy and white stripe T.

You'll be surprised when you read where these Levi's are from. SEARS! For $37 you can walk away with this new fun summer staple, a skinny white jean with an ankle zipper. I've very tempted to head over to my local Sears, aren't you? This is definitely the softer side of Sears!

The Gap brings you these linen pants. They are quintessentially summer and on sale for $34 right now. They seem to be selling fast so be quick to snag your own pair! This looser pants would be fantastic with a thin ribbed tank or a brightly colored v-neck T.

So there you have it. A nice selection of white summer pants all at affordable prices! 

Happy shopping!

Art Talk Tuesday: Rose Miller Art

My day job allows me to wear various of them is that of merchandiser (sort of). Our museum store is part of my department, so the shop manager often sends me pictures of this and that, which may or may not end up in our store. Last week she mentioned some hand painted rings coming into the store for sale. Today I went down there to finally see them and I fell in love. Rose Miller, is a local artist in Miami and she does amazing things! I am so happy to have found her, as I am now a great fan. The picture above is a ring she painted with the Biscayne Bay Pink Islands of Christo. I'm so in love with this ring, it is going to be very hard NOT to walk out of work with it on my finger.
 Above are some other rings of Rose's that we have for sale at HistoryMiami. Most of them range from $25-$45. A bargain for a beautiful original work of art that you can wear!

Music Monday: The Go Find

Hello and Happy Monday! This month has been crazy, so I have been neglectful of my posts. SORRY!

Now as for music. I have discovered some great new tunes, but this one is special. Last week Mr. D stumbled upon a great college radio station from Lithuania,  Start FM. Every few minutes he was calling me into his office to hear "this" and "that" ...and then came 25 Years by The Go Find. It reminds me of my friend Greg McGrath's music, mellow but faceted. If you have not heard them, I reccomend you do.

Have a fantastic day tomorrow!

Thursday Threads: Fun in the Sun

Today was the last day of school for public school students in Miami-Dade County.That means that summer is here!!! To celebrate that here are some fun things to bring into your life for the summer months.
Summer would not be summer at our house without one of these hats from Stitching Around. Stitching Around is a great little monogram shop in Miami that I live for. Run by my friend Colleen, she has everything you need for summer time activities...towels, totes, swim suits and yes, SPF protected hats. I just bought two new ones for Mini and she loves them. At $22 you can't beat them!
 This seaplane is made by an innovative American company called Green Toys. They make their toys of recylced materials and are extremely durable and affordable to boot! How much fun would your kiddo have at the beach, pool, back yard or tub with this fun toy? It's about $20 online at the Green Toys website. 

This year for my birthday I finally caved in and got the LL Bean Hunters Tote and had them monogram it in orange (as seen above). The zip top version is perfect for the summer. It's waterproof, it zips up top so nothing will fall out...and it's only $39 for the XL +$10 for colored monogramming. 
When you are running around in the summer, you don't want to worry about having to take your watch off before jumping in the pool. Swatch has been making colorful splashes as long as I can remember. personally I had a great collection of swatches that I would kill for today. Here is one my favorites from the company today, it's $60 and lots of fun! 

So happy summer! I hope you are safe and don't forget to apply sunblock every 60 minutes when you are outdoors! 

Happy Shopping!
