 I have a thing for a cute pink skirt outfit. Summer or winter, I love pairing them with sandals or booties, sleeveless tops or sweaters.

Just when you thought you'd seen all the pink pleated skirts you were going to see from me, BAM, I'm back with another pink pleated look. I wore this skirt for a winter post - complete with a ton and a half of snow, here and just because I think pink is seasonless, I'm sure it's not the last time I'll be breaking it out.

I honestly don't know what it is about pink skirts (I like pink tulle skirts too) that makes me want to spend money like it grows on trees, but I truly have issues. Oh well, it could be worse, right???? :)

 I'm also a fan of statement earrings this summer. Even though these black tassel earrings go with everything, my favorites are actually full of color.

So now that summer is in full swing, I'm trying to take advantage of every second of it. I got off to a late start running, thanks winter, but now am back to somewhat of a schedule. I've also been frequenting the trails around Lake Michigan and OMG, I can never get over how gorgeous the are. I think that's one of my favorite things to do in summer. It feels SO good to be outside and active again!

My list of things I want to accomplish for summer is continually growing, but the two things that are HIGH atop my priorities are:

1) Deck Re-do. Nothing fancy...but I do need to stain it this year and I've been eyeing a new table/chair/umbrella set and cute rug. And cute pillows. And some new lighting. But aside from that stuff, nothing fancy. I LOVE my deck but really can't use it like I want because there's no shade and it's directly in the sun nearly the entire day. So a small dining table with an umbrella would be perfect!

2) A trip to NYC to take in a Yankees game. I could just go watch the Yankees when they're in Chicago (I probably will), but let's face it. That is not the same. Plus, it's New York, soooooo....I need to make this happen!

Hope your weeks are off to great starts and there are two things I absolutely HAVE to know from you: 1) What are your summer outfit go-to's? and 2) What are your exciting summer plans? Full disclosure, I'm totally looking for ideas to steal:)
