Two Favorites on Sale!

I wanted to share two of my favorite items just reduced!

I bought these last year in the leopard print and loved them so much I bought the snakeskin version this year. What I love is there are no pockets and they zip up the back.  It makes for a seamless, slim fit.
I am wearing a size small.

The matching camisole is also on sale too.  Would make a cute twin set.

I can't say enough great things about this dress.  It is cotton and so soft. Several of you asked last time about what bra to wear and you can wear a regular strapless bra.  I am in a size small. The orange color is also on sale HERE

Obsessions | Transition Pieces

We still have a few more months of heat here but I am dreaming of Fall.  I thought I would round up a few clothing options for now that can also take you into Fall, transition pieces if you will.

This is the perfect romper for now and into Fall. It also comes in red.

I just love these and they also come in red, and white.  

This is great for now and would perfect layered with a leather jacket once it gets cooler.

I was shocked when I found out these were Jessica Simpson.  They look way more expensive.  I can't believe they are under $100!! I am really considering ordering these.

I love this wine color for Fall.  This would be great alone as is or paired with tights and booties.

I love a chambray dress.  I especially like the lighter color of this one.

I love the boho feel of this blouse.  I would wear it with jean shorts now and jeans later.

I actually just picked these up and love them.  I wear them now with gladiators flats and a tank but also love them dressed up with heels.

Such a great price for this lace top.  I can't decide if I like the white or black better.

This is under $50 and comes in 3 color options.  Looks so soft adn comfy!

This was just reduced to $39.  Super cute with shorts now and jeans later.

Lightweight enough for now and great with tights this fall.

Ok I had no idea Tom's made shoes other than their regular canvas shoes.  These remind me of a pair of Vince shoes I have been lusting after but way less expensive, under $100! These would be cute with any of the dresses above.
I love this blush color for summer and fall.  It also comes in a gorgeous teal color and it was just reduced 40% off.

I love a maxi dress in the fall with a cute jacket. 
This is so simple yet so stunning.

Family Sushi Dinner + Cucumber Salad Recipe

When World Market contacted me about planning a dinner table scape I was ecstatic.  World Market has become my go-to for entertaining essentials.
 There is one not too far from our house and I find myself there often browsing their new arrivals.  They have an amazing wine selection too, especially Rose!

World Market has so many great plain everyday white dishes but I wanted something a little different.  Since Sterling has been so into sushi lately and now Frances loves it too, I decided some Asian inspired dished would be fun.

I have to say I am kind of obsessed with our sushi gear and I know we will be using these dishes often.
My parents happened to be in town this weekend so I invited them over for Sushi Night!

The plates were my starting point for the table.  I fell in love with the bright colors.  The bowls match the plates.
I always love Moroccan tea glasses.   The glasses come in 5 different colors, but I really liked the teal.  You really could serve any beverage in them but I love them for wine.

I use my table runner all the time and it was just reduced to 50% off and is now only $12!

Let's talk about food.  We obviously had more than 2 rolls of sushi, this was our starter course.  These rolls were mainly for the kids, we saved the good stuff for the adults.  The salad could not be easier. 

 You spiralize one English cucumber, and two carrots.  You could also thinly slice them if you don't have a spiralizer.  Add about half a bag of frozen edamame (thawed).  Drizzle with soy sauce and sesame seeds. So simple and we loved it. Plus the colors are gorgeous.

Sterling was super excited about our sushi night.
Oh and the wooden chopsticks are washable and reusable:)

Since we were doing sushi I went all out and bought sake too.
I just love the little sake carafe and glasses.
The whole set is under $8!

Frances wasn't quite sure how to use everything and had more fun stacking the dipper dishes.  She did however shock me and ate 5 pieces of sushi!

My adorable parents. I was so happy they could join us.
I think Sushi night will be a family tradition we will continue.

You can shop all the pieces I used below. 

Thanks to World Market for partnering on this post.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
