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 :)

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!

Engagement Story & Photos

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I’m finally doing a post about our engagement and sharing our photos from our fabulous photographer Emma Anne Photo! Our engagement story goes a little something like this, on May 20, 2017 the day before Travis’s birthday I had planned a birthday dinner for him at one of his favorite restaurants, Kobe’s. We were going with our friends Chris and Mer and I suspected nothing as I was just focused on celebrating my guys birthday. We got to the restaurant enjoyed our dinner and then I told the waiter to bring the cake out for Travis and instead Travis got up and started giving the whole table of 10 people a speech about me and I just looked at Mer and was like he’s drunk what is he doing! Then I realized and he turns to me and asks for my hand and asked me to marry him! *All the ugly crying* Seriously I was so shocked and happy!

Fast forward we have been engaged almost 2 years and finally took our engagement photos a few weeks ago! Check them out below and I have some tips for taking your own engagement or couples photos as well that I highly suggest not just as a blogger but a photographer myself.

I definitley recommend picking your outfits in advance colors and patterns that compliment each other we had two outfit options so we did one fancier outfit and one casual. The nicer look I found a jewel tone dress from Lulu’s and Travis wore classic black pants and suit jacket with a white button down. The casual outfit I chose a casual dress and fun pink wedge heels and Travis jeans and a short sleeve button down. I recommend lashes either extensions for falsies and a little heavier makeup, this makes a huge difference on camera! Also i suggest getting a mani and pedi because it’s all in the details! The little things are important and are noticed!

Above all else have fun and enjoy taking your photos together! This is a celebration of the two of you and memories that you will hold forever! Importantly print your photos, frame them and enjoy them!

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?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year beauties!

After a hiatus at the end of 2018 I’m back and ready to take on the new year! Without getting to personal 2018 ended with a bang and not in the best way. My fiance ended up in the hospital for about a week so we couldn’t make our holiday travels, our priority because getting him healthy and we were able to bring him home on Christmas Eve, Woot! He’s on the up and up and doing well, shout out to everyone that sent texts and called and gave us support, especially my parents! Then we had some more things happen before we rang in the new year. We are working through all of this and are taking it one day at a time!

Now for happier news, Travis and I have chosen a wedding venue and have started booking vendors for our big day next year!!! I’ll be doing more wedding blog posts for y’all this year about how we found our venue and the reason behind it.

Now for the first look of 2019, this year I’m having more fun with fashion but streamlining it. Classic and casual has been my style for a long time and that hasn’t changed. These pieces are super affordable and comfortable. The dress is surprisingly from Stein Mart and booties from LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s, the bag is Coach outlet my go to bag for 2018 and necklace from Dillard’s Black Friday Sale. I’m loving the olive green for winter in FL.

This year is a year of change, and I know that’s what everyone says but after everything we went through in 2018 especially at the end I know I am stronger than ever before. I’m confident in myself and being a curvy blogger, yay body positivity! I’m determined to take control of my health and wellness this year and cut out all negativity in my life and only surround myself with the positive! Anyone else? What are your goals for the new year?
