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!

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 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?

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!

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!

Yearly Daytona Beach Trip

Happy October everyone! Can anyone else not believe that it’s like three months until the holidays?! Where did time ago? Anyways Travis and I took our now annual trip to Daytona Beach this past weekend and had a blast as always. We have stayed at the Hyatt Place Daytona Beach Shores for 3 years now and don’t plan on stopping! It’s a close drive but we are definitely the happiest close to the water, it’s the Sarasota girl in me growing up ten minutes from the beach!

We got to the hotel Friday after work in time to watch the sunset and enjoy some relaxation and dinner! I’m always super casual driving to the beach so this was my travel look if you will.

Of course we spent most of our time on the beach and at the pool! I brought a few suits from Loft to sport on the beach and love this one! It was $15 on clearance and the color was perfect and goes perfect with that big blue sky!

Saturday night we hit one of our favorite spots to eat, Ocean Deck. This is one of our favorite spots super casual and on the beach but I love wearing a good sun dress. This dress is from Forever 21+ I grabbed this on sale as well for $13 its super cute and I plan on packing it for our cruise too!

Sunday Funday was for the beach and we grabbed some shots of this other Loft suit with a little more sass! This suit is out of my comfort zone but going out of your comfort zone is good for you, right?!

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!



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!

Classic Casual Look

Hey guys! Hope you're having a great week so far! Quick life update for you I'm gearing up for a busy fall. We are headed to Vegas this month, possibly planning some beach trips for September, and I'm boarding my first cruise ship in October. I have weddings booked, wedding planning for my own big day, and starting to plan for the holidays, I seriously need more time in a day, anyone else? 

Anyways...I've got a classic Laramie look for y'all today. When it's not boiling outside a look like this is pretty much my go to. I love everything girly and dressy don't get me wrong but I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl through and through. Old Navy has always had some of my favorite jeans and I love a good distressed pair of denim! Paired with a fun t-shirt with some embroidery from Loft and fun flats (again from Old Navy) add some sunnies and I'm good to go anywhere. This look in total is under $50, you know I love me a sale!!! I hope you love this look!

Floral Fun Look

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It has been raining constantly here in FL so I've been soaking up the sun when I can and embracing those summer look just a little bit longer! This summer I've been living in rompers, shorts, and dresses because the heat has been unreal this summer! Rompers and jumpers are probably the easiest thing to wear in the summer just because that is your whole outfit! Throw on some cute sandals and fun accessories and call it a day! 

This floral number is of course from Old Navy, they really killed it this year with the floral prints and cute styles! I've worn this romper so much this summer, it was definitely one of my go to's. It is so comfortable yet you feel put together and it's just so easy! I mostly wear it with the accessories you see in the photos, my bright pink sandals also from Old Navy and my delicate pink studs are from Kate Spade. You all know I love a good statement piece but my tried and true jewelry is delicate and simple! 

We have some exciting trips that I can't wait to share with ya'll very soon! I also need ya'll to let me know if you want me to do more than one blog post a week, and if so what days? What are some other things you would like to see on the blog? I've been doing a lot of fashion lately but are you interested in beauty products or home decor?  Let me know in the comments below!
