Fall Season with London Times

I’ve teamed up with London Times to share a few pieces from their October collection and let me just tell you I’m obsessed! First off is a jumpsuit and y’all know I LOVE a good jumpsuit! You’ve been seeing quite a few of them here on the blog recently and they are here to stay! Just like a dress I love that a jumpsuit is a complete outfit, one piece and done! The Lu Jumpsuit in Navy is the most perfect outfit for fall and even going into the holidays! It’s super well made, double lined and has this beautiful metallic threading throughout to give it a little shine. Seriously so beautiful, I especially love the cut and style with pockets, belted waist, and perfect neckline! This is a timeless piece that you will wear over and over again! I paired it will a cranberry velvet bag and a light gold kitten heel as this is definitely something I could wear from office out to happy hour or shopping! A must have, check it out below!

Second look I want to share with y’all is the Anika Dress in Eggplant. This dress is perfect for all year long, the color is one of my favorites and one I especially love for Fall and Winter Season. I love the details on the cuffs of the sleeves as well as the different sheer fabric used for the sleeves along with the gathering to define a shape! I think the cut is so flattering for any body type as it is fitted and then floats away from the body helping emphasis an hourglass figure, what woman doesn’t love that! I dressed up this look with a metallic clutch and white heels with silver accents to go with the silver embellishment on the sleeves! Such a great dress, again another timeless piece that you will wear over and over again! Check it out!

Make sure to check out these pieces along with the other fabulous pieces from the London Times October Collection over on the London Times site HERE these are timeless pieces that are worth the investment! Let me know what your favorite look is below!

Bachelorette Weekend Recap & Mini SRQ Travel Guide

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

This week we are talking everything bachelorette party weekend! I chose to have my bachelorette party in Sarasota, are you surprised? Let’s be honest I’m a Sarasota girl through and through and I had to have my bachelorette weekend at the beach, no place I rather be than here! This post is about the weekend but also a mini travel guide for some fun things to do if you are ever in Sarasota!

First off my girls killed it with the hotel and the decor for the weekend! We stayed at The Sarasota Modern, and it was an instagrammer’s dream, everything was beautfiul and picture perfect and I can’t wait to go back! My party was tropical themed so everything banana leaf and pineapple which I’ll share below with all my favorite treats to munch on over the weekend!

A must while in SRQ is to hit Selva Grill especially for Happy Hour! They have my ALL TIME FAVORITE Cesar Salad and the drinks are amazing too! *Word to the wise get there earlier, it’s a poppin spot* We also hit some bars on Main, which I can’t attest to much as I’m not a bar girl so we didn’t stay long, but we did have a celeb sighting at one of the bars, see if you can’t guess who it it below :)

We also of course hit Daquiri Deck on Siesta Key and had to take a photo at the beach because what is a trip to Sarasota if you didn’t go to the beach, right?! Highly recommend checking out the Daquiri Deck if you’ve never been, it’s a staple in town, especially if you’re going for a beach trip! They have great drinks of course and the food if yummy too!

Lastly we only hit one local breakfast spot, but if you’re ever in town make sure to stop at Station 400 they have amazing breakfast and lunch and the food is out of this world. The whole vibe of the downtown location is just like a train station, it’s the cutest! Highly recommend!

Sharing some snaps from the weekend below and will have a fun photoshoot from the weekend coming soon! We are 4 months away, next stop bridal shower!

What I'm Packing For My Bachelorette Weekend

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

We are just a few days from my bachelorette weekend and I’m sharing my must haves that I’ll be taking on my beach inspired weekend!

First off all things white! I’m bringing a cute white summer dress from LC Lauren Conrad for one of the nights as well as a white swimsuit and other white accessories for all the looks to be “bridal” without being to much in your face. I’m also packing tropical print and colored pieces from Old Navy that will be perfect for drinking daiquiris and walking on the beach! comfortable shoes are also a must as we will be doing a good amount of walking so sandals and comfortable wedges will be essential! I’m also packing a few fun bags to go with the whole beach theme especially because here in FL summer isn’t really over for I’ll be bringing all the summer pieces I haven’t worn yet!

I’ll be taking tons of photos this weekend to share with y’all of the final looks and the fun festivities! Below are some of the pieces I’m packing and some other fun things that would be perfect for a beach bachelorette!

End of Summer & Wedding Update

As summer “technically” is coming to a close and it is still very much pool season here in Florida so of course you can find me sporting another ArteSands suit by the pool soaking up some rays of sunshine. They recently sent over this sassy one piece in the cutest animal print with a fun cut out! Y’all know I love this brand and everything it stands for! I love that they are size inclusive and have the cutest prints and styles! I paired this fun suit with a super cute cover up from Amazon and sunnies from Old Navy. I absolutely love the cut and fit of this suit and how it accentuates all the right things! I highly recommend checking them out!

I also promised y’all a wedding update and here it is, we are working on wrapping things up before the holidays begin as once October hits we know a lot won’t get done between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, My birthday, New Years we are going to blink and it will be the day. Needless to say we are doing our best to complete all our tasks. We will be sending out the official wedding invitations soon, my dress just got here, my bachlorette party is next weekend and my bridal shower is next month and things just keep going, LOL! I can’t believe it all has happened so fast, I’m trying to soak up as much as I can because I want to enjoy all the little things!

Happy Wednesday babe!

This week we are talking about jewel tones and jumpsuits and going into fall. If you’re anything like me you love jewel tones especially for the fall season! Give me all the emerald, cobalt, and amber colors! I love the richness of the colors and how they compliment fall fashion! Let’s talk about another thing I love…jumpsuits! I love a good jumpsuit and this one took me by surprise from Old Navy! I love the amber/mustard color and the polka-dot print! Jumpsuits just like dresses are a great one and done, one complete outfit in one piece, my perfect scenario!

I love that this jumpsuit in particular is a light weight material and can still be worn from summer into fall I paired this below more for summer with a block heel sandal and clear bag perfect for brunch or shopping, I’m obsessed with this look! I also love that you can take this into fall with a denim jacket and some flats and cross body bag. The jumpsuit was $25 on sale and the sandals I’ve been wearing all summer also from Old Navy and the bag is from Amazon because they kill it in the accessory department!

Happy 4th of July y’all!

We are celebrating the 4th with family this year! I’ll be sharing all about our trip coming soon but I wanted to share this super fun look today! I always love having a fun red,white, and blue look for the 4th but especially pieces that I can wear all throughout the year with other things!

This retro dress comes in tons of colors and lengths at Old Navy and the fabric is super light weight and easy to wear! I paired mine with a distressed white denim jacket from LC Lauren Conrad along with blue heel sandals also LC Lauren Conrad and retro inspired sunnies also from Old Navy and Kate Spade earrings!

I just appreciate that all the pieces are good paired with other things in my closet! The dress would be cute with sandals. The jacket is cute with other dresses or pants and a top and those shoes go with everything!

Random Rambles & Summer Gingham

Happy Wednesday Babes!

Hope y’all are having a great week thus far! This week I wanna talk a little bit about this look but I also have a lot of random rabbles and life update! First off I’m super over whelmed with work right now as we are in busy season, from 9-5pm I work in the real estate industry and it is never a dull moment! I have the pleasure of meeting a lot of amazing and interesting people but y’all this business is not for the faint of heart. But anyway I’ve been struggling a lot with balancing work and what I really love doing which is my blog and photo business. I would love to tell y’all I have it all figured out but that is just not the case. I’m working on organizing and managing my time better and will update you later on what I’m changing and doing.

As for the blog I’m working on a lot of new content for you, trying to expand more and not just focus on fashion but beauty and lifestyle. I have tons coming up with summer fashion, wedding planning tips and tricks, organization, and everything in between. I would love if you could let me know what you are wanting to see or need on the blog! Please let me know in the comments below!

As for wedding there is a lot happening! I’m mostly excited for my bachelorette weekend as I know a little bit about it and it’s at my favorite place! I can not wait! Super excited for picturesque moments with my best babes! Stay tuned for more!

Ok lastly lets talk about this look really quick! I’m loving the gingham trend right now and this little number you guessed it is from Old Navy! I paired it with my favorite summer sandals right now, my favorite amazon clear bag and Kate Spade necklace. I’m living for the bright colors and summer feel and the fabric on this is super light weight, perfect for this FL weather!

That’s it for now, have a great rest of your week!

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!

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!
