Must Have: Little White Dress

Just like every girl needs a little black dress she needs a little white dress as well! I found the cutest little white dress at Old Navy with this eyelet detail and buttons is so perfect for any occasion!

I paired this cute little number with a few different current trends! I’m loving the clear bag trend and this bag was only $19 on Amazon! They have tons of cute ones and I’m loving them! Next the pearl hair clip, this is another huge thing right now and I got a pack of 12 different hair clips and pins for $12 on Amazon again, like wow what I steal! Lastly I’ve been loving these block heels from Old Navy they go with everything and are so comfortable and I’ve bought them in a bunch of different colors!

This dress would also be great for a rehearsal dinner or bridal shower! It just has great details and is so delicate making it something a little special!

Bold Floral Look

Happy Wednesday babes!

I’m loving some bold colors for spring and summer this year and these bold florals are everything! This dress was a steal for $12 at Target and these sandals are from Old Navy and I love them! I have them in white as well and they are a great shoe for the office or going out!

Dresses are the easier during summer here in Florida and this one is another super light weight dress that make you look put together without trying to hard, yay!

I have more dresses coming for y’all along with some white options for my fellow bride-to-be’s out there! I have a great one that I can’t wait to share with you!

April Ellie Look & Fitness Update

Happy April Everyone!

Time is just flying by this year! If you follow me over on Instagram @lifestyle_w_laramie you know that towards the beginning of February I decided to make a commitment to myself and replace “I don’t have time” with “It’s not a priority” when it came to my fitness schedule. Well once I started doing that my mind shifted and I started carving out time 4 times a week to workout, this is huge for me as I have never liked the gym. I’ve been a ballroom dancer my whole life and have never liked a gym atmosphere. however after college and not having as much dance at my disposal I became lazy and didn’t put myself first.

That ended almost two months ago because as we focus on wedding planning and building a life together I realize that if I don’t build these habits now with my health and wellness and focus on myself when will I ever? I want to be the best version of myself when I walk down the aisle not just physically, but mentally. That all starts with putting myself first and making moves!

That being said cute active-wear also motivates me to work out and y’all know that I have loved Ellie for years! They send the cutest work out clothes from the best brands! Below is a fun look from their April collection and I’m loving the cool cut outs on the pants! I definitely recommend checking them out especially if you’re looking to try some new pieces!

That’s all for today, just remember sometimes it’s important to put YOURSELF first! Take time for yourself, self care is so important and can really change everything you do and your outlook taking just a little time for yourself!

Viva Las Vegas

We just got back from our Las Vegas trip Tuesday morning so of course I had to let all know about the must sees and dos when visiting the strip!

We stayed at the Paris Hotel for a few nights to really experience the strip and walk around! The hotel was amazing so chic inside, crystal chandeliers everywhere and just an overall Paris vibe of course. The pool over looked the Eiffel Tower of the hotel and was an absolutely stunning view while laying out by the water. 

Let's talk food! So as soon as we got off the plane at LAX we headed straight to In-N-Out for the first time EVER on our way to Las Vegas. Ya'll it was everything  I imagined and when you've been on a plane for hours and starving it tastes extra good! Another fun spot we checked out was Taco Bell Cantina, yes the food you can get anywhere but not the drinks they have 7 different slushy flavors in which you can add a shot of alcohol and have the perfect drink to beat the heat! To top it off we had to stop and get Fat Tuesdays because when in Vegas! 

Some must do activities would include visiting old Vegas, Fremont St. and seeing everything there. Also if you are adventurous check out the High Roller Ferris Wheel the view is amazing and it is a perfect way to see the city! Of course if you have time check out a show they have tons to offer and tons of amazing singers have residencies in Vegas currently! 

Lastly if you have time on your way out of Las Vegas make sure to stop at the Seven Magic Mountains! It is so cool and different, definitely a must to stop and take some photos with these colorful rocks! Do expect it to be packed I would highly suggest maybe getting there earlier in the morning to beat the crowd but again totally recommend it!

Have you ever been to Las Vegas? Let me know in the comments below we are thinking about going again sometime and exploring more!

Winter is Coming!

The slightest bit of climate change that remains for days straight is so exciting here in FL. It has been so so nice here in the early mornings and evening as the air gets cooler and there is a need for a sweater, it puts an instant smile on my face. Below is one of my favorite looks for fall and winter. A sweater with jeans paired with a pair of fun boots and sunnies, topped off with a deep colored lip. This is a great look for day paired with shorter boots or flats and neutral gloss and then take it to evening with a heel or tall boot and deep colored lips! Please leave your favorite winter and fall fashion pieces in the comments below!

Orlando Artists To Watch!

Art...what do you think when I say that word? I have always loved art and studied art in school, granted I don't have much talent when it comes to painting or drawing. My art is photography, but I have always been super inspired by artists, whether it be a painter, a photographer, or a writer, in a way everyone is there own artist right? Well I am very inspired by two awesome artists in particular that I want to share with you, Genna Sweetnam and Peterson Guerrier. I want to thank these two fabulous souls for opening up their studios and allowing me to capture their art and them at work! You both are SUPER AWESOME!


Genna

Genna and I met in a drawing class in college and we were instant friends! This girl loves everything art and everything art loves her....she is so talented in all art forms! It's inspiring to know someone that doesn't want to limit themselves to just one art form but do their very best at every art form they try! She is a fabulous painter and creator, her pieces have a great sense of adventure and whimsy that bring such joy to everyone that sees them! Make sure to check out her IG @giggerbug and show her some love!


Peterson

Peterson and I met at my first job out of college at an art gallery. He quickly became one of my favorite people at work and another inspiring artist! Peterson is also super talented at all art forms! Not only is he a great photographer but painter as well! I love that he blends these forms together capturing his subjects through his lens as well as his paint brush! Probably my favorite thing about Peterson's work is that it is expressive and takes you to a place with true emotions. Peterson is super fun to be around and watch take on the art scene, truly inspiring!
