Art Talk Tuesday: Versailles Sun

Today one of our Education Center team members left for graduate school in Canada! Traditionally on their last day at the museum (specifically in my department), the person gets a gift and lunch at a place of their selection. So our friend TM selected the staple Cuban restaurant, Versailles for her last lunch. At the end of a great meal we all sat there knowing the sad inevitable was I drew this little sun on my place mat...a reminder that TM would miss the Miami sun, but mostly that we will miss her ray of sunshine personality.

Thursday Threads: Blue Jean Baby

If you ask me, the most basic outfit anyone can have is a great pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. Pair that with flips for a casual day, or add heels and a statement necklace for a date, toss them with flats and a jacket and you own casual Friday at work. I love my jeans, and I know I wear them every chance I get. Here are some great pairs I found on the interwebs this week. 
This paint splattered pair is very fun and brought to us by our friends at the Gap. Currently on sale for $52.99, you can snag a pair for yourself here.

The classic of all classics is a great pair of Levi's jeans. This boot cut fit, which is flattering on most people can be yours for $45 online. The great thing about Levi's is that they NEVER go out of style! Everyone should own a pair!

If you really want something casual, then get yourself some distressed jeans (or make them yourself)...but if you're not a DIY girl, then this great pair from Old Navy can be  yours for the rock bottom price of $15 online! How can you say no to that? Warning...these are the "super skinny" so you might want to go up a size.

Do you have "go-to" jeans in your closet? What do you love about them? Who makes them?

Happy Shopping!

Music Monday: Grant Lee Phillips, Love My Way

Today was quite a day, with a sick Mini and Mr. D hurt his back, so I had to bring Mini along for the ride all day long today. On our way from the History Museum to the Science Museum (all in a days work), I heard this song. Love My Way performed by Grant Lee Phillips. I love the original Psychedelic Furs version just as much as the next person, but I thought Grant Lee Phillips did a really nice job with his 2006 remake of this classic.

Are there any remakes you really like?

Thursday Threads: Dog Days of Summer

It is HOT! Normally August and September are the worst months in Miami, but this year here we are in July and it is BAD! To beat the summer days, the best thing to do is fine a great dress and wear it like a uniform. Recently I discovered a few dresses and jewels for the perfect summer ensemble.

This dress is one of the reasons that I am back in love with the Gap.  Currently it is on sale for $30!! It comes in the two prints shown and also in white. It's perfect and ...yes AND it has pockets!!!

Then there are these beauties to layer with these dresses for a touch of sparkle! They are from J.Crew and can also be worn on their own without each other. The bottom one is $55 and the top one is $58. Aren't they pretty??

Any new great finds you've had this summer? 

Happy Shopping!
