Fall Season with London Times

I’ve teamed up with London Times to share a few pieces from their October collection and let me just tell you I’m obsessed! First off is a jumpsuit and y’all know I LOVE a good jumpsuit! You’ve been seeing quite a few of them here on the blog recently and they are here to stay! Just like a dress I love that a jumpsuit is a complete outfit, one piece and done! The Lu Jumpsuit in Navy is the most perfect outfit for fall and even going into the holidays! It’s super well made, double lined and has this beautiful metallic threading throughout to give it a little shine. Seriously so beautiful, I especially love the cut and style with pockets, belted waist, and perfect neckline! This is a timeless piece that you will wear over and over again! I paired it will a cranberry velvet bag and a light gold kitten heel as this is definitely something I could wear from office out to happy hour or shopping! A must have, check it out below!

Second look I want to share with y’all is the Anika Dress in Eggplant. This dress is perfect for all year long, the color is one of my favorites and one I especially love for Fall and Winter Season. I love the details on the cuffs of the sleeves as well as the different sheer fabric used for the sleeves along with the gathering to define a shape! I think the cut is so flattering for any body type as it is fitted and then floats away from the body helping emphasis an hourglass figure, what woman doesn’t love that! I dressed up this look with a metallic clutch and white heels with silver accents to go with the silver embellishment on the sleeves! Such a great dress, again another timeless piece that you will wear over and over again! Check it out!

Make sure to check out these pieces along with the other fabulous pieces from the London Times October Collection over on the London Times site HERE these are timeless pieces that are worth the investment! Let me know what your favorite look is below!

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!

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.

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?

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.

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!

April Ellie Look & Fitness Update

Happy April Everyone!

Time is just flying by this year! If you follow me over on Instagram @lifestyle_w_laramie you know that towards the beginning of February I decided to make a commitment to myself and replace “I don’t have time” with “It’s not a priority” when it came to my fitness schedule. Well once I started doing that my mind shifted and I started carving out time 4 times a week to workout, this is huge for me as I have never liked the gym. I’ve been a ballroom dancer my whole life and have never liked a gym atmosphere. however after college and not having as much dance at my disposal I became lazy and didn’t put myself first.

That ended almost two months ago because as we focus on wedding planning and building a life together I realize that if I don’t build these habits now with my health and wellness and focus on myself when will I ever? I want to be the best version of myself when I walk down the aisle not just physically, but mentally. That all starts with putting myself first and making moves!

That being said cute active-wear also motivates me to work out and y’all know that I have loved Ellie for years! They send the cutest work out clothes from the best brands! Below is a fun look from their April collection and I’m loving the cool cut outs on the pants! I definitely recommend checking them out especially if you’re looking to try some new pieces!

That’s all for today, just remember sometimes it’s important to put YOURSELF first! Take time for yourself, self care is so important and can really change everything you do and your outlook taking just a little time for yourself!

Wedding Wednesday: Picking the Ring!

Happy Wedding Wednesday y’all!

This week we are talking about sparkle! We have gone wedding ring shopping and although we haven’t made a purchase yet, I definitely know the look I’m going for! I have a rose gold, pink morganite, and diamond engagement ring so you can go a few different ways when it comes to rings, as mine isn’t part of a set. I tried a matching wedding band and a few different wraps that I definitely prefer. I also love lots of sparkle and the one I love the most offers sparkle and goes along with the vintage feel of my engagement ring and is timeless. Below you can see the one I love, along with a few others I tried!

You can see below I tried rings that were “too much” and competed with my ring and didn’t complement it. I also tried a more traditional band that went more with my ring. I ended up loving a white gold ring that complements the rose gold and sparkles and wraps the ring beautifully!

What does your dream ring look like? Let me know!

Wedding Wednesday: Picking the Perfect Shoes!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Now that we have the perfect dress we need the perfect shoes, right?! I’ve always had an idea of the shoes I would wear at my wedding as well as look perfect in my wedding details flat lay (I also photograph weddings so details are so important to me!)

If you’re anything like me you have every sparkly Badgley Mischka heel pinned on a wedding board on Pinterest! I knew I wanted a blush colored heel, something semi comfortable to walk in and a bit of sparkle. We went to Dilliard’s and it just so happened they were having a SALE! I tried every nude and blush heel I could find, closed toed, open toed, sandal, wedge, and heel you name it I tried it. My mom found the perfect pair of shoes thankfully in my size and brought them over to me and and these were all my shoe goals! They are Badgley Mischka, blush, open toed heels with the most beautiful details on the heels! A plus they were marked down from $268 to $80 y’all that is insane! I’m sharing my perfect shoes below along with some other options that I love!

What would y’all like to see next week on Wedding Wednesday? Let me know!

Wedding Wednesday: Saying Yes to The Perfect Dress!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Travis and I are officially less than a year away from saying I DO, so I wanted to start doing Wedding Wednesdays on the blog! A few weekends ago I went dress shopping at The Perfect Dress Bridal Boutique in Sarasota, FL. I had no expectations going in, just expecting to look around and try dresses on. I didn’t have anything in particular I was looking for at all….I mean NONE AT ALL! I tried on a total of 7 dresses, of all different styles and sizes. On a side note, when you go wedding dress shopping your size doesn’t matter as wedding dresses run super small in size, don’t even look at the size…just my opinion.

Anyways I had the best bridal consultant, Sue, she tried everything from different sleeve options, to veils, headbands, you name it she did everything to give me the best dress shopping experience and that she did! I highly recommend The Perfect Dress for all your wedding needs! Sue helped me narrow the search down to two dresses that were similar in style but very different feels! I did end up saying YES to The Perfect Dress and couldn’t be happier with my choice! I’m sharing some of the dresses I tried on below along with some photos from the bridal boutique.
