Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

I've had a serious case of wanderlust as of recent. A far and exotic land is calling my name and I must go soon! But where? Pinterest has given me a few good ideas. But I need your hep!
Basic requirements: must not break the bank, must be heavy on cultural experience and must provide memories for a lifetime! Can't say I'm asking too much...

My bucket list:

Any others I should consider? Be my trip advisor! Where should I go, Carmen?

...Those Summer Nights

We have a couple weeks to go until the official first day of summer (June 21st). But, with sunshine lingering past 9pm and temps in the 80s, it sure feels like summer. I am thrilled to start wearing shorter hemlines and sleeveless tops. I especially love this dress from the LOFT. The fabric is light and breathable. I love the flirty flare hem and the mock-halter neckline.

Wearing this dress is as easy as the decision to purchase it. I have the feeling I'll spend many summer nights in this dress. Look out, Summer 2015, we're coming for you!

Tech Refresh: Cell Phone Case Top Picks

You can't argue the research: those who own smartphones now spend nearly 4 hours each day on them. Don't let your smart phone style get drab! Spruce your tech-game by swapping your old case for a new one. Cell phone cases are a fun way to show off your individual style. And, with so many styles to choose from, the sky's the limit! 

Get a little collection going and make it a routine to switch them on the occasion (just as you would a bag or wallet). Playing on seasons is an option: floral for spring, pineapples for summer, geometric for fall and glitter for winter.

Let your case do all the talking! Where's your favorite place to shop for tech-accessories?

Naps Every Single Day (As if)

Graphic Tee: Nordstrom (similar here)
Jeans: Topshop for Nordstrom
Bag: Thrifted (similar here)
Shoes: Target

Naps every single day, I wish! Weekends? Now we're talking.

I absolutely love a graphic tee and relaxed boyfriend jeans for weekend and everyday wear. Also, these gold espadrilles I picked up at Target have proven to be a major steal. How can one resist a pair of gold sparkly espadrilles for just $20? I digress...

Espadrilles are one of the "it" shoes of the season. I've worn them and I'm a fan! Buy a pair for yourself. Wear them to a baseball game, out to drinks with friends, to the Sunday market or any other flingy destination you choose.
