a lovely living

Monthly Archives for July 2014


Now that August is nearly upon us, I’m doing my best to take advantage of all of the summer things we have yet to check off of our list. One such item was visiting a local amusement park. It’s small and very manageable which makes for an easy outing for our family. Needless to say, […]

Caprese Pasta Salad

It’s safe to say we are in full picnic mode. I love picnics because you’re typically only required to bring along one dish, yet you end up having a feast. We’ve been to three within the past week, so I’ve been on the lookout for some yummy side dishes. I had pinned this Caprese Pasta […]

My Kind of Safari

I hate to say it, but I’m already prepping my wardrobe for fall. Not that I’m purchasing fall pieces (outside of the Nordstrom sale), but more like pieces that are season-less. This safari vest is one case in point. I had had my eye on it for some time, but I wasn’t planning on paying […]

His & Hers (non-essential) Survivor Kits

It’s interesting to think about what your everyday go-to items are. The items you’d have a hard time getting along without. I’m not talking food, water, shelter here, but more of the things you’ve become all too comfortable with. I asked my husband to join in and no joke he rattled of five items in […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, all! It’s been a busy week around here. First and foremost I should let you all know (unless you follow along on Instagram and are already aware) that I became an Aunt! You can see a shot of sweet little Max below. He is absolutely perfect! Of course immediately after he was born […]

White + Turquois

I’ve mentioned how I’ve been drawn to white on white this summer as last seen here. I’m guessing part of that reason is because the time we’re able to pull off the monochromatic white is very short lived. Here I paired my white denim with a cute, casual t-shirt that I got on sale at […]

Lemon Basil Shrimp Risotto

A friend recently posted this link to one of the Pioneer Woman’s latest recipe’s. It was right up my alley so I jumped on making this Lemon Basil Shrimp Risotto. Many times I find shrimp served in less rich dishes, but I loved the creaminess of this version. She mentions that the size of shrimp […]

One Outfit Two Ways

I’m not sure if I’m becoming or have always been a t-shirt junkie. I think it’s much easier to become one these days because of the numerous options available right now. With that being said, I wanted to show you how easy it is to wear your t-shirts dressed up and down. I grabbed this […]

I fell for THE sale

Well, it happened, I caved. I’m not ready for fall in the least bit, but some of the prices at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale were just too good to pass up. I think being a blogger makes it impossible to ignore this sale because it’s all anyone is talking about on here. It makes sense […]

High Five for Friday

I swear sometimes I blink and it’s Friday again. How does that happen?! Nothing too crazy to report around these parts. The little man has been at a camp every morning this week so I was able to get a little one on one time with my daughter. Even just having the time to sit […]
