(mini) current obsessions wednesday: feeling like a ballerina at the beginning of summertime.

summer has officially kicked off in our house.
the little sis is out of school for the summer so we get to spend more time together.
we're thinking beach days, movie runs, and lots of smoothie runs!
as much as i miss chicago in the summertime, 
there is so much to look forward here with the beach right next door and being with family.

and hey, since i got back from GA, i've been playing catch-up with everything so i don't have a full current obsessions post for you today. but....i will say that i am completely obsessing over these adorable Natalia flats sent over by one of my awesome sponsors, Blowfish Shoes. and not only are these flats adorable - they are super comfortable. i do not lie. i did not even have to break into them. i slipped my feet right in and wore them all day without a blister. also love the ankle straps - i felt like a ballerina. 

oh and one other obsession i hafta throw in here.
this particular movie trailer that made my week.
could november come any sooner?!

what are you obsessing over, friend?

 much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]

p.s. love funky, mind-blowing creativity?!

    The answer is NO. November cannot in fact come ANY sooner.
