Summer fashion inspiration

There is so much summer inspiration flowing on Pinterest these days! And with the sunny Dublin weather we've been having and our upcoming trip, I am definitely in the spirit!

Bring on the bright colors and summer whites!

Gold accessories + pop of pink // Striped maxi, headband scarf + neon tote
White on white lace // Summer neons + accessories

Linking up with Long Distance Loving today... head over for some more fashion inspiration!

Complete side note (and completely off my Italy diet plan), has anyone tried these yet???
These sounds ridiculously tasty!

Happy Wednesday!

My brother comes into town tomorrow to visit us for the weekend before we head off to Italy. Very much looking forward to his visit and having him out to Dublin for his first trip to Europe!

Today I am linking up with The Vintage Apple to share some of my favorite Pins of the week!
Lovely office nook

Perfect for our upcoming trip!

Inspirational quote:
"Comparison is the thief of joy."
Such a wonderful reminder.

The sun is finally shining here in Dublin after a week of rain... it's a good day already!

Jetsetting to Italy

One week from today, I will be off for my trip to Italy! I am beyond words excited for this trip!

We are flying into Rome and will be staying there for a few days before heading up to Tuscany and Florence. After that, we are off to the gorgeous coast of Cinque Terre and then Milan where we fly out.

Any tips, tricks or recommendations are more than welcome! I am all ears for some great hot spots from all of you!

Instagram recap

We are officially back in Dublin after a lovely visit home!

Sorry for the hiatus. I expected to blog a bit more while I was away, but time got the best of me. And instead of stressing about it, I just enjoyed the time we had there. I don't think we were quite ready to come back, but what a sweet visit it was!

I wanted to share a few Instagram pics with you as of late.

Pretty peonies: a surprise from Jacin at our breakfast date // Caught a Giants game with the family in SF
The bird + I enjoying the summer sun & blooms in the park // Gorgeous Cali weather and scenery during a morning run

Is it bad to admit that I miss it already...?
