After spending the day with my mom and sister at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, we all drove up to San Francisco to introduce my mom and sister to Thai food.

I decided to combine two days of the style challenge, and wore my polka J. Crew sequined top with my pleated ASOS midi skirt.

This is a really fun top, and if you Google J. Crew polka dot sequined top, you’ll find plenty of ladies that have worn this top their own way. I also own the white and black version of this top, and I wore it with a chambray top underneath it. This time around I didn’t want to bother with layers and wore the top on its own.

I’m wearing a J. Crew sequined top (sold out, I bought mine on eBay), an ASOS pleated skirt, an H&M clutch purse, and J. Crew Factory Emery flats.

 I’ve sang the praises of J. Crew Factory’s Emery flats for over a year. I own them in black and bronzed clay, and they are my go-to flats. I do have a wide foot, so I tend to size up in any kind of flats and did the same with the Factory Emery flats. I wear my Emery flats at least three to four times a week. I teach, so you know that means I stand all day long. I was iffy about buying the flats last year, but I’m so glad I did!

These flats are versatile, comfortable, and fashionable. J. Crew Factory recently added the navy version (shown above) to their product line, and I had to make sure I nabbed them for the new school year!

These shoes retail for $98, and they are currently listed for $78. Last night they were $60, so I was bummed when the price increased today! However, I just got an email about a flash sale! If you enter SWIM at checkout you get FREE shipping and 30% off! Plus, if you use EBATES you get 1.5% cashback.

My mom and sister spent a couple of days with us, and we had a great time. My sister and I can still finish each other’s sentences, and my husband looked at me with wide eyes when my sister and I would sing every part of a Disney song (instruments included) in unison.

Chambray
 This week has been a busy week for me; my mom and sister are coming to visit for the next few days, so I’ve been attempting to prepare for their arrival. That means a bunch of cleaning, purging, and organizing–stuff I’ve been meaning to do for awhile, but I never got around to doing it (nothing like yo’ mama’s arrival to make you go into a cleaning tizzy).

A few weeks ago I placed an order for an adult sized pair of Saltwater Sandals from Zappos. However, when they arrived I go a size kids’ size 9! I called Zappos, they were sold out of the red (OF COURSE!), and they sent me a gold pair of Saltwater sandals for FREE and told me to keep the pair they sent! I’m planning on giving those to my friend’s daughter.

I do like my gold pair, but I really wanted a red pair of Saltwaters; I ended up getting them at a local shoe store and I love them! I remember wearing Saltwater sandals as a kid, and about six or seven years ago my friend Cheric wore her Saltwaters to church camp, and I fell in love with them again! Salwater sandals have been on my mind every summer since then, but I didn’t buy a pair (or two) until this summer. They seem to be everywhere and I almost didn’t buy them.

I’m glad I got them, and if you’re interested in a pair for  yourself, here are a few things you should know:

  • When ordering online, be sure to order the big kid/adult size.
  • The shoes run large; I ordered my normal size, but I could have gone down a full size.
  • They are made for water; when we were in Carmel a couple of weekends ago, I wore these into the ocean with no problem. They dried quickly, but they also stretched out and got a little loose.

I’m wearing a GAP chambray shirt (similar, Day 23 of the Style Challenge!), a Dorothy Perkins skirt, Saltwater Sandals, and a Harper Reversible Tote.
