One of my favorite weekend activities is going to the farmers' market. Seriously, no one is more excited than I when summer hits, because that means a bounty of fresh goodies to peruse. So when the folks at Rockport asked if I'd be interested in trying a pair of their sandals, I figured what better place to break them in than during one of my weekly market strolls?
Aside from the fact that their Total Motion Stone Anklestrap Wedges seriously required zero breaking in - no, seriously - I got to partake in one of my favorite past times: doing something by doing nothing. Where else can I do my food shopping, leisurely enjoy the beautiful weather, have
an oatmeal raisin cookie ice cream sandwich for breakfast and bring home
a happy bouquet of sunflowers? It's little things that make for a good weekend for me.
Ladies, for a limited time, Rockport is offering a 20% discount off their shoes to Respect the Shoes readers. These are the first pair of Rockports that I own and I don't know why I've waited so long. The sizing is TTS for me and the sandals were literally immediately comfortable right out of the box - there was absolutely no breaking in period, seriously. For a gal who is on the eternal search for stylish and comfortable shoes, these are it. I am already putting down other Rockport styles in my shopping cart!

My apologies for the brief blog absence, ladies, I've been on the road traveling for work and it has been all-consuming. I've had the good fortune to have visited to Amsterdam and Paris these past two weeks - so no complaints here! - and I've pretty much eaten my way through both cities. I'm planning to share some pics on the blog soon - have a lovely week!
I know this top is really meant for sleeping in and I have! but it is a near perfect blue/white stripe for me - other stripe maniacs out there know what I'm talking about here: the hue of blue, the spacing between the columns, mm-hmm - and just plain comfy, so I can't help but to wear it out and about. I accidentally tossed this top on a cast-off pile of shorts from another day and ah-ha, pattern mixing eureka for me! Most of my outfit combinations are happy accidents, and this is one of my recent favorites. Happy Monday, everyone!
This blouse is different from my usual style but the print on it was too pretty to refuse. Plus the light weave is a great cool layer for warmer weather. The fluttered sleeve is also a nice bare-arms-but-not touch, though I had some trouble making it work for me - these type of sleeves are typically not too kind to the broad-shouldered. However undoing a few of the buttons along the shoulder seems to make it work - my sleeves may be extra "fluttery" now, but at least I don't resemble a linebacker in a frilly top.
