exploring local this summer

I love Lawrenceville, NJ. 
We have lived her for about 7 years & I am so happy we have decided to call here home!

Lately we have been exploring our local shops, ice cream shops, and restaurants 
{picture taken from The Purple Cow ice cream shop in Lawrenceville, NJ} 

I also wanted to check out a boutique I recently spotted in a local strip mall,
"Perfectly you" caught my eye with the yellow striped floral blouse in the window.
You have to ring a bell to get in which was a little weird, and a white dog that surprised/scared me,  she lives there and was barking at me but was too cute!
 there were many tops that I fell in love with, but a little too pricy to take them home with me...

loved the stripes on this blouse, especially the people at the bottom, 
may stalk/purchase if it goes on clearance!

Another pretty floral blouse!

I also went to the Burlington Coat Factory that is in the same plaza,
I fell in love with this colorful leopard blouse {$14}
May have to run back and pick this up!

Also loved this Hello Kitty leopard bag! 

I did pick up these Calvin Klein perforated leather pointy cap toe flats!

The sushi place in this plaza was one of our favorites about a year and a half ago for "happy hour sushi" that was super cheap {like $3 a roll!}, but it has been closed for renovations & it is back!
Now they have an "all you can eat approach" and it is still good for the price!
Love their Kani Salad too!

A relaxed summer look for my local adventures!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Firmoo, lips- MAC "Chatterbox", necklace- hand-me-down from mom, scalloped tank & shorts- Anthropologie, lace tank & sandals- Target/Sam & Libby for Target

At home, I've been making strawberry mango lemonade!

& made chocolate covered strawberries & pineapple! 
Happy Summer! 
I am enjoying every moment while it lasts!

I like the look of the scalloped top with the scalloped shorts! I almost bought those shorts but decided not to at the last minute. And I totally thought the lace top was Anthro too!

I know right! Anthro has some versions right now but this one is Target! A great score!
