Summer Lovin'

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Hope y’all have had a great week so far! As always we have so much going on right now! I feel like Summer is one of my busiest times when it comes to travel and work! My 9-5 is in season right now with everything so I’m slammed with tons of work and my personal life is super busy right now with summer travels and wedding planning. They kind of leads me into talking about this look!

With being super busy I need pieces in my closet that are easy, one piece that can be a complete outfit. Y’all see a lot of dresses on here from me and that’s mostly because I love that a dress is easy to grab and put on, there’s no oh this doesn’t match with this, exc. I also feel like dresses are so easy to dress up or down with shoes and accessories and that makes them so versatile!

I’m a short girl but I’ve been loving the midi-length dresses, especially Old Navy! I’m also loving this purple pink color for summer! I paired it with a fun clear bag from Amazon and sandals from Old Navy too!

Hope y’all have a great rest of your week!

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!

Perfect Neutrals with LC Lauren Conrad

Happy Wednesday babes!

Dresses are always my go to for the summer time, especially here in Florida! Dresses aren’t just the easiest thing to wear with just one and done piece but also something that is breathable and comfortable. I love this look from LC Lauren Conrad as the dress is perfect to wear at the office with flats as you see here, or with a denim jacket and sandals or wedges for the perfect brunch look! It’s so easy to wear and change for any occasion!

There will be more dresses coming to the blog in the coming weeks along with more summer fashion and another round of the T-Shirt Shop Series that we do every summer! There will also be more Wedding Wednesday posts as we are working more on our wedding planning!

Let me know what you would like to see on the blog! Your feedback really helps!

Retro Inspired Spring Look with LC Lauren Conrad

Happy Wednesday babes!

We are talking all things LC Lauren Conrad today! Every piece that makes up this look is from the LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s and I’m OBSESSED!!! This look is giving me modern 70’s vibes from the high waisted pants to platform heels I’m living for this look!

To start y’all know I love a good t-shirt and this fun one is super soft and I love the details on it makes it so fun! The pants though, I need every single color and pattern in these because they are the comfiest things every! I think they are so flattering on every body type with the slight paper bag waist and the tie detail. The accessories are all so fun and can be used for all different looks! The shoes are so fun and would be great with skinny jeans or a maxi dress! The sunglasses are great for everyday and I love the classic shape. Above all else I’m loving the beautiful hair pins, this is a big trend right now and these are perfect for everyday!

Definitely check out the whole spring line at Kohl’s online and in store!

Spring & Easter Dress Options

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Hope y’all are having a great week so far! I have a short week this week as I’m taking Friday off to finally shoot our engagement photos and then head on a mini vacay right after that!! Woot woot! Love me a long weekend!

This week I wanted to share with you one of my favorite dresses for spring and summer along with some fun dress options for Easter next weekend! This dress below is from Old Navy and is one of my favorite dresses they have ever sold! I know that’s a heavy statement but this dress is so light weight and comfortable, perfect for spring and summer here in Florida but there is a plus…this dress has a hidden button between the first and second button that guarantees there won’t be any gaping hole between buttons, this is a game changer! If struggled with tops and dresses that button my whole life and this is amazing! I talked a bit about this on my stories as well @lifestyle_w_laramie if you want to check it out! Anyways this dress comes in a few different colors and patterns and just an overall must have in your closet! It’s perfect for the office, brunch, shopping you name it, I’m wearing this dress everywhere!

Old Navy is killing it in the dress department this season so I’m including some of my favorite below! They are great Easter options as well as just spring/summer dress options to have in your closet! I practically live in dresses during the hotter months so I love having so many options!

What do y’all do for the Easter holiday? Do you have a big celebration or is it more of a casual day? Let me know below!


Cute & Casual Look

Happy Monday!!!

Starting the week off sharing one of my favorite casual looks and every piece is from Old Navy! This whole look head to toe is all together under $50!!! These jeans are my absolute favorites, I’ve talked about them before but they are the high rise secret slim rockstar jean from Old Navy and are my perfect distressed jean! Paired with a white tee, black sandals, and a fun hat! How fun is this hat?!

This is a great outfit for everyday and perfect for running errands! Y’all know I love a great casual outfit and this is one of my favorite for spring time it’s also perfect the movies and shopping too! Recently I worn this on a target and lunch trip and seriously you don’t get more comfortable than this!

I hope y’all have a great week! More fun things coming to the blog, I’ll be talking about my current fitness and health goals and where I’m at with all that soon on the blog so make sure to sign up for my email list so you don’t miss anything!

Sassy Spring Look

As we head into spring I’m showing y’all one more look on these pretty pink stairs! This berry dress from LOFT was a steal on sale and is a dress that can really be worn every season! ou can take this from fall/winter with booties and tights and summer/spring paired with a denim jacket and wedges or maybe some pastel accessories for spring! Kind of like you see here I paired this dress with the same Halogen heels from Nordstrom Rack and crossbody bag from LC Lauren Conrad.

I love dresses like this that are so easy to change up and pair with different things as well as the dress itself is so comfortable but slightly structured and I LOVE that! The material is super comfortable and light weight but looks more expensive than it is, which i love!

I can’t wait to share more spring looks with y’all! Get ready for swimwear and the t-shirt will be coming back soon too! That seems to be a favorite around here!

Classic Red Dress For Any Occasion!

Hey guys! Hope y’all are having a great weekend! I’m now going to be trying to do 2 blog posts a week one will be Wednesday for “Wedding Wednesday” and one will be Sunday for everything else; fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. I’ve had lots of you say you wanted to see wedding details and of course I want to keep my normal posts going as I know wedding won’t pertain to everyone!

That being said, I wanted to showcase a classic look, this would have been great for Valentine’s Day but this is also a great look if you have an event or maybe a special dinner that calls for a bold color! Nothing says confidence more than a bright red dress! Right?! This look is from LC Lauren Conrad with Halogen heels from Nordstrom Rack and bag from HOBO bags at Bloomingdales! All these pieces have been in my closet for a few years now, remember you don’t always need to have the newest pieces to reinvent a look!

I feel like every girl needs a little black dress, white dress, and red dress and this one is mine. I’ve worn this for not only Galentine’s Day parties but corporate events as the cut is very modest and classic but makes a statement with the color. This dress is a hit for any occasion.

I hope y’all have a great rest of your weekend and a fantastic week! We are spending the day getting the apartment organized, meal prepping, and running errands. What are you all up to this week? Anything fun?

Wedding Wednesday: Saying Yes to The Perfect Dress!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Travis and I are officially less than a year away from saying I DO, so I wanted to start doing Wedding Wednesdays on the blog! A few weekends ago I went dress shopping at The Perfect Dress Bridal Boutique in Sarasota, FL. I had no expectations going in, just expecting to look around and try dresses on. I didn’t have anything in particular I was looking for at all….I mean NONE AT ALL! I tried on a total of 7 dresses, of all different styles and sizes. On a side note, when you go wedding dress shopping your size doesn’t matter as wedding dresses run super small in size, don’t even look at the size…just my opinion.

Anyways I had the best bridal consultant, Sue, she tried everything from different sleeve options, to veils, headbands, you name it she did everything to give me the best dress shopping experience and that she did! I highly recommend The Perfect Dress for all your wedding needs! Sue helped me narrow the search down to two dresses that were similar in style but very different feels! I did end up saying YES to The Perfect Dress and couldn’t be happier with my choice! I’m sharing some of the dresses I tried on below along with some photos from the bridal boutique. Check out The Perfect Dress HERE

L-O-V-E & Valentines

Happy almost Valentine’s Day!

This is another super fun and Valentine’s inspired look for y’all! I grabbed this LOVE sweater from Old Navy during Christmas time funny enough and saved it for this month because it was a perfect fit! I paired it with my favorite high waisted shorts from Loft, pink Pumas from TJ Maxx and pink Michael Kors crossbody! I love a great sporty look and this one is so fun and kind of reminds me of old school jock sweaters, does anyone else love the movie Grease?! Anyway this is a great look if you are doing something casual tomorrow or maybe going shopping or brunch this weekend!

Travis and I have never been huge on the holiday, we don’t need a holiday to show how much we love each other but that’s just us. We actually have never had a good Valentine’s Day anyways and there is to much pressure on this holiday as it is. This year we are keeping it super low key, going out to our favorite BBQ spot and not worrying about pre-fixed menus, again that’s just us, to each his own.

To be honest I just love the pink and red and all the half off candy the day after Valentine’s Day, anyone else? Probably the best park about Valentine’s Day especially when I was younger and single was running to Target the day after Valentine’s and buying myself flowers and chocolate, buying myself a gift! LOL! It’s so important to love yourself first! Self love is key, don’t let a holiday change your mind or think that you have to be with someone, just saying.

Anyways enough of my rambling about this holiday! We are headed home this weekend for a special collaboration as well as tons of wedding planning! I will be taking you all along on IG and sharing more here on the blog when we get back! For now let me know what you have planned for tomorrow, or what outfit you’ll be sporting!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year beauties!

After a hiatus at the end of 2018 I’m back and ready to take on the new year! Without getting to personal 2018 ended with a bang and not in the best way. My fiance ended up in the hospital for about a week so we couldn’t make our holiday travels, our priority because getting him healthy and we were able to bring him home on Christmas Eve, Woot! He’s on the up and up and doing well, shout out to everyone that sent texts and called and gave us support, especially my parents! Then we had some more things happen before we rang in the new year. We are working through all of this and are taking it one day at a time!

Now for happier news, Travis and I have chosen a wedding venue and have started booking vendors for our big day next year!!! I’ll be doing more wedding blog posts for y’all this year about how we found our venue and the reason behind it.

Now for the first look of 2019, this year I’m having more fun with fashion but streamlining it. Classic and casual has been my style for a long time and that hasn’t changed. These pieces are super affordable and comfortable. The dress is surprisingly from Stein Mart and booties from LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, the bag is Coach outlet my go to bag for 2018 and necklace from Dillard’s Black Friday Sale. I’m loving the olive green for winter in FL.

This year is a year of change, and I know that’s what everyone says but after everything we went through in 2018 especially at the end I know I am stronger than ever before. I’m confident in myself and being a curvy blogger, yay body positivity! I’m determined to take control of my health and wellness this year and cut out all negativity in my life and only surround myself with the positive! Anyone else? What are your goals for the new year?
