We had the biggest crepe myrtle tree right outside of our house growing up. It was there every time I ran down the back steps and left the house. It was there when I got a skip-it for christmas and tried to set a record in the driveway. It was there the last time I walked out after our house sold and cried my eyes out because I knew I would never hear that same familiar sound of the back door closing. Anyway, there are so many gorgeous crepe myrtle trees blooming all over Chapel Hill and it makes me think of my home in Mississippi.
I gave my sister a painting of our house for her birthday a few years ago and I’m so excited that for my birthday this year we are getting to go to New York City! Home is where the heart is and in this case my heart is going to be in the audience of Les Mis with a cup of red wine… I saw from Snapchat that that’s available in a themed mug, no less, so I know what I’m getting myself for my birthday! haha In clothes news, I’ve fallen in love with Apparis. Its’ pretty, affordable, and great quality. Also, this J.McLaughlin purse has been one of my favorite ever. It goes with everything and I love the way the cognac leather pairs with white for the summer 🙂
Also in clothing news, Shopbop is having a surprise sale today! Its 25% off all designer sale merchandise using the code DESIGNER25. It ends tomorrow. Also, and this one definitely applies to me, Amazon Prime is doing 30% off clothing, shoes and accessories, and 35% off luxury beauty today. I feel like this is a warm up of the sales since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, aka the sale of all sales, starts Thursday!
There’s real life documentation of all the gorgeous crepe myrtles on snapchat today (LC_Steele) along with Nilla saving a turtles life. 🙂
