Real Talk: Confidence & Fashion

Happy Wednesday Y’all!

Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite pieces from the LC Lauren Conrad summer collection with you and wanted to also have a little chat about confidence and how clothes can affect that.

First off it ‘s not new news that we all have a size we prefer to be and see on our clothing tag, however that number doesn’t define us nor should it make us feel less than. I’ve struggled my whole life with my body image not until a few years ago did I truly learn to except to love my body in every state. I’ve learned that every brand and article of clothing run differently size wise so whether I need to size up or down or am my regular size the number on the tag does not define me whatsoever.

Therefore I love that LC Lauren Conrad is size inclusive with regular, plus, and petite sizing! How awesome is that!? I love that the fabrics and style and cuts can be worn by any shape and size and the clothes just make you feel good about yourself.

I’m obsessed with this sunny dress with lush fabric and bright print. It fits great and puts me in such a great mood paired with these adorable wedges also from the summer collection with some layered necklaces and earrings! This is by far one of my favorite dresses I own and will be wearing all summer long!

Y’all know you can shop LC Lauren Conrad online and at Kohl’s and make sure to check out their Instagram for style inspo @lclaurenconrad :)

Summer Night Out

Summer is probably my favorite season next to spring not only for the beach days and fun trips but the fashion! I love the bright colors and fun accessories. Summer is a time to be playful and just have fun and what better way to do that than with your wardrobe? Am I right?! Some of my best memories and fashion moments have definitely been in the summer time which is why I'm so excited to share this look with ya'll!

Date night usually consist of myself wearing skinny jeans and a cute (usually black or white) top and wedges. So I've decided to switch it up a bit, with the FL sunshine as hot as ever you don't need an excuse to wear a sundress. This is one of my go to's for summer, yes I know it has long sleeves but this dress is the lightest most breathable cotton and the sleeves eliminate having to bring a sweater to happy hour or the movies. I added the fun pineapple clutch for that fun summer touch and some nude wedges that are the most comfortable things ever, and with a fiance who's over 6 ft. tall I tend to sway towards wedges when I can (short girl here). 

You can find the dress and clutch at Old Navy and the wedges at Nordstrom Rack, but currently tons of places have cute sun dresses and wedges, including Target, Loft, and TJ Maxx! I've linked these pieces below for you to shop the look!

Let me know what you think of this look and what you like to wear on a date night in the summer time!!


Happy Holly Days

Christmas is officially 10 days away! I swear I blink on Halloween and suddenly it's Christmas! Anyone else feel that way? I am done with shopping (except for online) since the stores are manic and am so excited to share this next holiday look with y'all.

 This midi dress from Old Navy is perfect for the holidays especially in this red! A plus, it's under $50 and super comfortable and wearable throughout the whole year! I paired it with some velvet blush heels from TJ Maxx to keep with the holiday feel as well as velvet bag from Kohl's. I've been loving the velvet trend lately which I'm sure you all can see in this look and several upcoming looks as well! The velvet adds a luxurious feel to the look and is super festive as well! 

Let me know what you all love to wear during this time of year as well as shop this look below!

Daytona Beach Vacation

Happy June everyone! My Fiance and I started June off right this weekend with our favorites by escaping to Daytona Beach, FL and staying at the Hyatt Place Daytona Beach-Oceanfront! This trip was actually a gift to my Fiance for his birthday and we had literally one of the best weekends we have had in a minute! Again like our St. Pete trip I'll take you on a play by play of our trip! Hope you all enjoy and please let me know if you enjoy these travel blogs!


We got to Daytona Beach around 5:30 pm on Friday and immediately grabbed some food to take back to the hotel. We grabbed some pizza at this sweet little Italian restaurant called, Rossellini's. This place is located super close to the beach and had some super delicious pizza at an amazing price! I highly recommend if you are in the mood for some authentic Italian food and pizza while out in Daytona hit up this yummy restaurant. After dinner and hanging out a bit in the hotel we walked down to the pool area and hung out. My favorite part about this hotel is you walk out to the pool and then just walk right onto the beach, so convenient and easy! 

Below you will find my car outfit, every piece from Oldnavy and super comfy! You will also find my swimsuit from the first night there!

Tropical Inspired Bar Cart

Summer is upon us, especially here in Florida! I've been loving the tropical theme lately that seems to be taking place right now and I used this as inspiration for my bar cart! So I grabbed a few key things to take my bar cart from classic to tropical! 


Let me talk about these pineapple mason jar glasses...obsessed. These are from Sur La Table and they are super inexpensive. They are super cute for a beach getaway or poolside with a pina colada! These mason jars are currently on sale for half off which is a steal, highly recommend! I also had a great experience with their customer service and would highly recommend shopping with them. 

The flamingo margarita glasses are also perfect in keeping with the tropical theme and could they be any cuter? These are from Kohl's and are currently on sale for half off! Again I always enjoy shopping with them and always get a great deal! 

Behind the glasses you will see 2 cute carafes, these are from Target! I love these for water or juice on the cart and think they are so adorbale, target gets me everytime! My mom actually bought me the pineaplle one!


The super chic bar napkins are also from my parents, they gave me these on Easter. How cute are they?! These I believe are from Sur La Table as well! The details on these are super sweet! The trim is adorabale and each napkin has something tropical on it; a flower, a flamingo, a palm tree, and a pineapple! Too cute!

My mom also got me the cute pineapple lights that are hanging on the vision board above the bar cart as well as the pineapple decoration next to the napkins! My mom is the sweetest! 

The rest of the bar cart is just the basics. In the four squares of the bar cart I just keep steamwear and cocktail glasses as well has two gold storage bins that keep extra napkins and appetizer plates for small bites with drinks. The bins are from TJ Maxx and are perfect stoarage solutions for anything! 


Below is the final outcome of these trocial things on the bar cart! Hope you all enjoyed this post and have a wonderful summer season!

Top 5 Everyday Jewelry Pieces!

I don't tend to wear a lot of jewelry on an everyday basis, however I love collecting pieces that are classic and can be worn for several different occasions! I am featuring a few of my favorite pieces for everyday looks below! I mostly stick to earrings and necklaces on a day to day basis, which is what you will see in this post. I will tell you the hands down best time to purchase otherwise expensive pieces for a steal is from Black Friday through the holidays. On the hush hush Dillard's has the best clearance section all the time but especially during the holiday season! We are talking Kate Spade, Kenneth Cole, Michael Kors and so many other name brands are on sale for amazing prices! I strongly recommend stopping into Dillard's next time you have the chance and glance at the jewelry section! 


Without a doubt you will never see me without earrings! Whether it be a simple pair of studs or a fun pair of ear jackets I always have earrings on. A look is not complete without some earrings to me! The two pairs below are Kate Spade and are so simple and elegant I adore them! I love a great simple stud earring that can go with any look. On the other hand I love when a piece can give you a pop of color and earrings are a great way to do that also!


The same thing goes for necklaces, I love ones that go with everything and are just silver or gold! I also have a huge obsession with long necklaces especially, because I think they are perfect for all seasons! They go with that summer maxi dress or that turtleneck sweater in the winter time. I'm showcasing two of my favorite long necklaces below, one colorless and one with a pop of color! Along with those I have one regular necklace that is the definition of dainty which I think every girl needs in her closet, don't you agree? We all have that one or two necklaces that makes you feel like a princess and the last piece is just that!
