A-Fourth-Dable Red White and Blue | Maya UnMarketed

(Image of this playsuit via Free People–though I altered it ever so slightly. Don’t worry, it’s the most expensive thing on this list! I love it and had to add, it but everything else is in my usual price range.) A-Fourth-Dable. *Laughs loudly at own joke.* If you tell me my puns aren’t funny, I’m going to bury my head in the sand and not listen to you. I’ll also bury my toes in the sand while we’re at the beach for the 4th of July… and maybe dig a little cup-hole-der…for my rosy tumbler of rose’, of course!

“Racking” up a Wishlist… And Some Amazing Buys!!!

Hello beautiful friends! And Happy Monday! (Is “Happy Monday” an oxymoron…?) The word “oxymoron” always makes me crave shrimp, because the most noteworthy ninth grade example of an oxymoron was “Jumbo shrimp.” I think part of the reason it stuck with me is because “Jumbo Shrimp” is really more of a classification than a downright 100% oxymoron… For some reason that bothered my nitpicky 14-year-old self lol.

Navy Striped Romper

I have a question: When did things become “stripe” instead of “striped”? Or “scallop” instead of “scalloped,” etc.? As a lifelong language lover and {recovering} Creature of Habit, I couldn’t help but notice the shift during recent perusals of other blogs and of course online shopping sites. At some point in recent-ish history things became double nouns (“stripe” and “romper”) instead of adjectives followed by nouns (“striped romper”). Or maybe the stripes rebelled against being portrayed in the past tense?!?

Updated Mom Jeans

I LOVE mom jeans.  They sit at the tiniest part of your waist. The pockets are placed high up on your backside and are consequently oh-so-uplifting. And the extra bit of bagginess is forgiving on the hips and thighs.

Good afternoon and happy Friday! As I mentioned in this post, Stephen and I were recently in St. Petersburg, FL for a wedding. Since both our moms live there, we also got to celebrate an early Mother’s Day! The morning of our “Mother’s Day” (exactly a week before the official day), my mom and I headed to St. Pete beach for a relaxing walk and swim. We grabbed some Dunkin’ Donuts lattes to tide us over until our noon brunch date.
