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!

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 Time Embroidery

Happy Monday Friends!

I’m totally ready for spring time and sunshine, anyone else?! I’ve been picking up some spring pieces lately and Old Navy and Stein Mart have had some great steals recently! These jeans are my new favorites y’all! They are high waisted, distressed, and sculpt how can I resist?! These are the best jeans and are of course from Old Navy! The tunic top is from Stein Mart and such a steal for $18 and I love the embroidery detail and the color! Paired with sandals from last year and Loft aviators on sale! This is my ideal spring look, it’s super comfy and easy on the go!

We are busy wedding planning and scheduling trip for the summer and I couldn’t be happier for beach days and trips! What is your favorite part about spring/summer?!

Classic Fall Style with Loft

Happy Wednesday lovelies!

I have another fall look for y’all! This one reminds me of horse back riding with the high neck and tie detail on the top and the blazer with chic elbow pads this look has all the details! This entire look is from Loft minus the shoes! These leggings are amazing, super comfy but also look more like pants than leggings, a big plus for the office! Again the top has fabulous details and can be worn with jeans for a more casual look. The blazer is a staple piece to have in your closet and this one is perfect especially for this Florida weather! It’s more of a sweater material but has the structure of a heavier jacket along with great details again would be great with jeans or even a skirt.

These pieces are great investment pieces and great mix and match items which are worth every penny. For me personally I tend to sway more towards classic timeless pieces and only purchase a few trendy pieces because the classic pieces will always be in style and a better idea to invest in.

What are your must have pieces in your closet? What do you invest in? Let me know!

Love Loft - Try On Session

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week thus far! Last week I shared a little bit about my experience with Loft at the Altamonte Mall but I wanted to go a little more in depth and share some looks from my try on session!

Again I had the pleasure of working with some amazing girls at Loft and we all tag teamed and picked out some looks for me to try. First off best part about this is when others pick your clothes, they choose something you might not ever try and might love if you did try them on! These girls chose several pieces I would never try and I loved every look I tried on at my try on session! I love Loft as a whole, the quality of the clothes, and especially how their clothing is for the everyday woman! I can take all my Loft pieces from day to night, dress up, dress down, that is what I love to have in my closet!

Another thing I really love about Loft is they just started carrying plus sizes so everyone can find the size best for them and not sacrifice style, so important! Another plus Loft almost always has a sale, I always score major deals at Loft and these are pieces I constantly wear!

Definitley check out Loft for some fun new fall pieces that have a ton of great things right now! A few looks from my try on session are below for y’all to check out along with the girls that put together those looks for me! Make sure to check them out!



Loft & Life Chats

We are half way through the week friends, yay!

This week is a super busy one for me full of events and fun things! I wanted to share something fun with you that I had the opportunity to do yesterday. You all know how much I love Loft, I mean let’s be honest over half my closet is Loft but yesterday I had the chance to actually go into Loft at the Altamonte Mall and try on some of their new fun pieces for fall! Literally it was a dream come true to get to work with a brand I love so much! I had the honor of meeting some great girls and working with them last night to do a try on session, check it out on my IG stories @lifestyle_w_laramie! They were the sweetest people and so fun to work with! Literally so grateful I get opportunities to do things like this!

So now on to this look, of course it’s Loft! This is a suit I got for our Vegas trip a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you! I have never tried Loft swimsuits before and I ordered 3 for this trip! I loved EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM! I was totally surprised but I really did love the fit and cut of each one and they were perfect for my trip and trips to come! Anyways this one is so fun with the lace up detail and the fun colors I couldn’t pass it up! I paired it with some hot pink sunnies from Loft as well and sandals from Old Navy to top it off! The whole look is under $50 as you all know I love a good deal and got everything one sale, I had my eye on this suit for a long time! Loft is just literally perfect for the everyday woman and I just absolutely love shopping with them! Make sure to check out their current sale which is 40% EVERYTHING!

As for everything else going on we are now into what I feel is my busiest time of year! I have some weddings I’m shooting in October and November. I’m planning my own wedding (I promise I will be writing a post about this soon). I have tons of blogger events to attend. Still work my 9-5 job and have a few trips lined up as well. Not to mention the holidays are coming! I mean really after Halloween is over you blink and it’s Christmas!

Again so thankful for all of you that take the time to read my blog and like my IG posts! I am so grateful for all of you! Hope you have a great week and I will see you next Wednesday! xoxo

Hamptons Vibes

Happy Wednesday ya'll! Summer is in full swing, especially here in FL and this has to be one of my favorite looks to date! i snagged this Vince Camuto Jumpsuit from TJ Maxx for only $40 isn't that amazing! I love a great deal on high end pieces and TJ Maxx never disappoints. This look is very different from what I'm used to, more bold, bright, and colorful but as long as you like it and feel confident in it that's all that matters! Right?! 

I'm sharing this fun look with you below, as well as the accessory details so keep scrolling and check it out!

This look gives me all the resort feels and makes me feel like I'm in The Hamptons on a vacay! What accessory gives you all the vacay feels? A big floppy hat of course! This LC by Lauren Conrad hat has been my everything since the moment I purchased it! It goes great with everything and is perfect for the beach, pool, picnics, you name it! 

I finished the looks with some pink wedges and gold oval hoop earrings keeping the accessories minimal and clean since the jumper is so loud and vibrant. Jumpers and rompers have quickly become my favorite look this summer since they are so easy and perfect for the heat! 

So between the V-neck on the jumper, the print, the accessories, this looks can really take you anywhere! I've worn this to work paired with a sweater and the same wedges. I've worn it to a conference/event and out to eat! This is perfect for pretty much anywhere and you don't have to try to hard! What do you think of this look and are you loving jumpers just as much as me this season? Let me know!

Easter Florals

Happy Monday Y'all! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! I had a little me time getting a facial on Saturday and some amazing brunch yesterday for Sunday Funday with our favs, but you're here for the fun floral look below right?! This is another great option for Easter and for spring with the floral details and fun colors. This dress again is from Old Navy along with the baby blue flats! The bag is from Hobo International and I love it for going out or when you don't need to carry a big bulky bag. The flats come in tons of colors and are super comfortable, easy to wear at work and then out or traveling, simply versatile! I love this look and I hope you enjoy it! What are you doing for the holiday? Anything special? Let me know!

 

There are tons of fun things coming up and I can't wait to share them with you guys! We are working on booking some more trips and I'm working on tons of new looks and content for you! xoxo

I hope you all have a safe New Year's Eve and Happy New Year! I can't wait for all the fun things to come in 2018! 

Winter Wonderland

The final count down is upon us as Christmas is only a few days away! This is my final and favorite holiday look for you all leading up to Christmas! This is the perfect look for Christmas dinner or Christmas Eve cocktail hour, this look can even be perfect for New Year's Eve as well! Again, I kept this look super affordable as the top is from the Loft clearance section (a whole $2.75, like what?!), the skirt is from the Lauren Conrad Runway collection for Kohl's (on sale for $30), the heels are from Dillard's last year ($25), but I'll link some similar ones for you guys as well as the clutch is from a cute Sarasota boutique. This is literally my favorite look for the season, I hope you all enjoy it! 

I'll be traveling during the holiday, so I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year! I'm working on several fun new things for the new year and will be posting again once I get home from my holiday and birthday travels! 

Again a huge thanks to Emma Shourds Photography for capturing this look in front of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, here in Orlando! 



Fall into Winter

This is the start of some holiday looks I put together for you all! I've paired this floral dress from Old Navy with with wine colored booties from Kohl's and golden bag from Lauren Conrad to make the perfect transition from fall to winter especially here in Florida. This is a great look for the office or grabbing some last minute gifts, it's comfortable and put together. All the pieces are super affordable as well which is a plus! 

I had a blast shooting this look with Emma Shourds Photography around downtown Orlando area especially with this brick and stunning architecture!

Make sure to shop the look below and keep an eye out for my next holiday look!


September Favorites

I can't believe September is already over and we are heading into October and then we'll blink and it will be the holidays! This part of the year seems to fly by always. September has been a busy month, full of apartment hunting, collaborations, and brunches! We finally found an apartment and we couldn't be more excited to move! I'll keep you all posted with all that fun on my IG stories :) I'm so excited for all the fun things October holds and I'll be sharing all the event on my blog and IG! For now here are all the things I've been loving in the month of September!


Beauty Products:

In September I've been playing with all kinds of fall colors and pulling out my richer tones. I've been living for the L'oreal Infalliable Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick, this is probably one of the most comfortable liquid lip I've ever tried! The product lasts all day through eating and drinking without ever re-applying! There's a great range of colors and they are perfect for this season! Another beauty favorite as always is colourpop, I've been obsessed with the "I Think I Love You" palette as well as the "Yes, Please!" palette both are great for everyday and can create tons of looks! One more essential that has been my go to this month is the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation! I love how it looks on my skin and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything and they have tons of shades!


Skin Care Products:

Along with my products from last month these are some of my must have skin care products for this month. Formula 10.0.6 is one of my go to's for masks especially and I love the "Get your Glow On" peel off mask! Next up my favorite cream cleanser ever is from Aveeno, this one is my ride or die I use it every night before I got to bed to help keep my complexion blemish free and skin feeling clean! Finally for skin care I love the Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic To Go Pads these are great for everyday and especially great for travel! 


Fashion & Accessories:

I love rich tones for fall, plum, mustard, forest green, they just really scream fall! Old Navy as always is my go to they have tons of great fall looks right now with a variety of beautiful colors and pieces to choose from! Also my favorite earrings all month have been these simply gold oval hoops. I love gold for fall to go with all the warm tones so these are my favorite touch to any fall look! Next up is this stunning LC by Lauren Conrad bag from Kohl's. I again love the mustard color which is still a neutral for fall and the detail on the bag is perfection! Lastly, booties are a given for the fall season and Sonoma at Kohls always has the best ankle boots at killer prices! They go great with every look and are so easy to wear especially here in FL! 


Those are my September favorites! I hope you enjoyed and please let me know your favorite below! Anything I need to test out let me know!
