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!

The Perfect Rehearsal Dinner Dress-LC Lauren Conrad

To all my future brides out there, if your anything like me you have used the excuse that you are getting married to buy any and all things white. I’ve been slowly collecting white pieces to wear for my bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, honeymoon, you name it I’ve bought it.

This dress from the LC Lauren Conrad collection is the perfect white dress to have in your arsenal. The fabric is so chic and can definitely be dressed up or down, whether you are a future bride or not it’s a stunning dress to have in your closet!

My also obsessing over the details and accessories from LC Lauren Conrad! My wedding has rose gold and blush tones throughout so it’s only fitting that the accessories for this outfit are blush and rose gold hues. I paired the dress with this adorable floral print circle bag, Lauren Conrad makes the best circle bags y’all! Then added these blush wedges and rose gold heart earrings! I’m dying over the whole thing!

This whole outfit makes me so excited to celebrate my wedding and feeling comfortable and confident with my look is a plus and y’all know the Lauren Conrad kills it every time when it comes to cuts and fits of her line! I highly recommend shopping the collection future bride or not!

Getting Over Insecurities

Let’s talk insecurities.

I’m sharing two of my biggest insecurities on these photos below! My first one wearing my hair up in a photo, I hate it! Can anyone relate? I always feel like I can’t pull off a ponytail in a photo. Thankfully Kate, my photographer convinced me and I love the result! I’ve just never felt that I could pull it off and that it would emphasis my round face.

My second is wearing white denim. My whole life I have NEVER owned white denim until these LC Lauren Conrad white denim skinnys came along! They are great, not see through, and stretchy! They are everything I didn’t expect but we all know this brand does a lot of things right and this is just one of them! I also love that the brand is size inclusive as I’ve mentioned before both petite and plus! What a win!

Needless to say never let your insecurities stop you and have fun with your look and your fashion! What if you end up loving it?! Make sure to check out all these pieces on Kohl’s.com.

Happy 4th of July!

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!

What do y’all do for the 4th? Do you have any traditions? Let me know!



LC Lauren Conrad Sleepwear & Me Time

Can we all agree there is nothing better than coming home after a long day at work and slipping on your pj’s and curling up on the couch with a great Netflix show? I don’t know about you but I spend an insane amount of time in my pajamas, not sorry! I’m currently obsessed with the new LC Lauren Conrad Sleepwear line that just came out a few weeks ago! The fabrics are so buttery and soft and the styles are just perfect, my ideal sleepwear! Just so comfortable, practical and of course super cute!

The bobble pocket tank and bottoms are so adorable and perfect for lounging around the house. I’m obsessed with the details on the pocket and love that the pants are drawstring and have pockets!

I’m also living for the blue ruffle chemise that is just so chic but again that same super soft and buttery feel just so comfortable and love the timeless print on this one! These would also be super cute for bridesmaids or a girls trip the colors are stunning!

I’m loving these pieces so much! One of the things are working on right now is me time and learning when to pause from the busyness of life! It’s difficult but I will say one of the things I enjoy most is having the house to myself, hanging out in my pj’s watching my trashy reality tv shows or cleaning our place! It’s become so necessary because with so much going on I’ve struggled with not feeling overwhelmed. How do you make time for yourself and what do you like to do?

Flirty Summer Look

Happy Monday Babes!

I’m sharing some more fun pieces from LC Lauren Conrad below! This dress is super fun and flirty! The dress is super light and comfortable and I love the sleeves and the button details in the front! I’m also obsessing over this circle straw bag from LC Lauren Conrad as well! Straw bags are a big trend this season and this one is the perfect size, and I love that it has handles and can go cross body as well!

Y’all know I love LC Lauren Conrad and I especially love that the line is size inclusive offering Petite and Plus sizes as well! I definitely resonate with the term “in-betweenie” as I’m a regular size Medium or Large depending on the brand. I very much appreciate size inclusive brands like LC Lauren Conrad that offer a huge array of sizing for all shapes and sizes! I love that!

Definitely check out the whole Spring/Summer line over at Kohl’s there are so many great pieces right now! Also a huge shout out to Kate Kelley Collection for the stunning photos!

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!

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?

Cranberry Corduroy Look

Happy Friday Everyone!

Sorry I’ve missed you the last two Wednesdays! Last Wednesday we were on our cruise and this Wednesday was Halloween, so I’m catching you up with another fall look that I’ve been loving! I’m really enjoying this cranberry corduroy skirt from Forever 21+ the fit is perfect as well as the length! I’m especially excited to pair this with tights for the cooler months. The top y’all have seen before, this Loft top is a great staple for your wardrobe! It can be dressed up or down and the color and fabric are perfection! Paired with a LC Lauren Conrad bag from last season and Halogen studded flats from Nordstrom Rack! These accessories are some of my favorites for Fall and they are the perfect finishing touch on a look!
