End of Summer & Wedding Update

As summer “technically” is coming to a close and it is still very much pool season here in Florida so of course you can find me sporting another ArteSands suit by the pool soaking up some rays of sunshine. They recently sent over this sassy one piece in the cutest animal print with a fun cut out! Y’all know I love this brand and everything it stands for! I love that they are size inclusive and have the cutest prints and styles! I paired this fun suit with a super cute cover up from Amazon and sunnies from Old Navy. I absolutely love the cut and fit of this suit and how it accentuates all the right things! I highly recommend checking them out!

I also promised y’all a wedding update and here it is, we are working on wrapping things up before the holidays begin as once October hits we know a lot won’t get done between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, My birthday, New Years we are going to blink and it will be the day. Needless to say we are doing our best to complete all our tasks. We will be sending out the official wedding invitations soon, my dress just got here, my bachlorette party is next weekend and my bridal shower is next month and things just keep going, LOL! I can’t believe it all has happened so fast, I’m trying to soak up as much as I can because I want to enjoy all the little things!

I’ll be sharing more posts coming up about all the wedding festivites and outfit options for the bridal shower and bachlorette party! Make sure to check back every Wednesday for a new post and updates!

Jewel Tones for Fall

Happy Wednesday babe!

This week we are talking about jewel tones and jumpsuits and going into fall. If you’re anything like me you love jewel tones especially for the fall season! Give me all the emerald, cobalt, and amber colors! I love the richness of the colors and how they compliment fall fashion! Let’s talk about another thing I love…jumpsuits! I love a good jumpsuit and this one took me by surprise from Old Navy! I love the amber/mustard color and the polka-dot print! Jumpsuits just like dresses are a great one and done, one complete outfit in one piece, my perfect scenario!

I love that this jumpsuit in particular is a light weight material and can still be worn from summer into fall I paired this below more for summer with a block heel sandal and clear bag perfect for brunch or shopping, I’m obsessed with this look! I also love that you can take this into fall with a denim jacket and some flats and cross body bag. The jumpsuit was $25 on sale and the sandals I’ve been wearing all summer also from Old Navy and the bag is from Amazon because they kill it in the accessory department!

What do you like to wear during the fall season? Do you have favorite pieces or colors that you enjoy wearing? Let me know in the comments below!

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!



Random Rambles & Summer Gingham

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. I would love if you could let me know what you are wanting to see or need on the blog! Please let me know in the comments below!

As for wedding there is a lot happening! I’m mostly excited for my bachelorette weekend as I know a little bit about it and it’s at my favorite place! I can not wait! Super excited for picturesque moments with my best babes! Stay tuned for more!

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!

Annual Daytona Beach Trip

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Y’all know that for the past few years now Travis and I have taken a little weekend vacay once a year to Daytona Beach and it’s a great time for us to reset and enjoy the start of summer! I love to share travel blogs with y’all the most probably because traveling and doing something different than everyday life is fun and a great escape!

We got to The Hyatt Place on Friday and immediately went to the pool to relax and enjoy golden hour before grabbing pizza at my favorite pizza place in Daytona, Rossellini’s! We get a basic cheese and peperonni pizza with ranch and y’all it’s one of the best places I’ve ever been for pizza!

Saturday we hit the beach and pool pretty much all day after grabbing our complimentary breakfast at the hotel. I’m loving all the gingham this summer and this suit from Old Navy is not exception. I paired it with some retro sunnies, also from Old Navy and some earrings from Bauble Bar, topped it off with a red lip and you could say I was probably the most over done person at the pool, LOL!

Moving on to Saturday evening we decided to check out a new restaurant as we tend to go to the same places while we are here. We decided to give Cocina 214-Daytona Beach a try! Y’all this is probably some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever had! Their queso blanco with chorizo and chip is out of this world! Seriously what dreams are made of! Travis got tacos with rice and beans and I got the enchiladas and we were not disappointed! Everything was amazing! The restaurant itself is stunning inside and looks out to the water so I decided to wear this little tropical print number to dinner. Again the dress is from Old Navy paired with my go to summer LC Lauren Conrad straw bag with flip-flops and it was the perfect casual dinner outfit! We finished the evening taking a stroll on the beach and just enjoying the water and each-others company, sappy I know.

On our last day we soaked up as much beach and pool as we could before heading home. I brought this fun pink suit from Aerie to snap some shots of and absolutely adore the color and style! Paired with some simple gold earrings, white sunnies, and pink lip I loved this look!

That’s about it for this years trip! We had a great time and just love our time by the water and hope to move closer to it again someday soon!

xoxo

Summer Lovin'

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Hope y’all have had a great week so far! As always we have so much going on right now! I feel like Summer is one of my busiest times when it comes to travel and work! My 9-5 is in season right now with everything so I’m slammed with tons of work and my personal life is super busy right now with summer travels and wedding planning. They kind of leads me into talking about this look!

With being super busy I need pieces in my closet that are easy, one piece that can be a complete outfit. Y’all see a lot of dresses on here from me and that’s mostly because I love that a dress is easy to grab and put on, there’s no oh this doesn’t match with this, exc. I also feel like dresses are so easy to dress up or down with shoes and accessories and that makes them so versatile!

I’m a short girl but I’ve been loving the midi-length dresses, especially Old Navy! I’m also loving this purple pink color for summer! I paired it with a fun clear bag from Amazon and sandals from Old Navy too!

Hope y’all have a great rest of your week!

Must Have: Little White Dress

Just like every girl needs a little black dress she needs a little white dress as well! I found the cutest little white dress at Old Navy with this eyelet detail and buttons is so perfect for any occasion!

I paired this cute little number with a few different current trends! I’m loving the clear bag trend and this bag was only $19 on Amazon! They have tons of cute ones and I’m loving them! Next the pearl hair clip, this is another huge thing right now and I got a pack of 12 different hair clips and pins for $12 on Amazon again, like wow what I steal! Lastly I’ve been loving these block heels from Old Navy they go with everything and are so comfortable and I’ve bought them in a bunch of different colors!

This dress would also be great for a rehearsal dinner or bridal shower! It just has great details and is so delicate making it something a little special!

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!

Bold Floral Look

Happy Wednesday babes!

I’m loving some bold colors for spring and summer this year and these bold florals are everything! This dress was a steal for $12 at Target and these sandals are from Old Navy and I love them! I have them in white as well and they are a great shoe for the office or going out!

Dresses are the easier during summer here in Florida and this one is another super light weight dress that make you look put together without trying to hard, yay!

I have more dresses coming for y’all along with some white options for my fellow bride-to-be’s out there! I have a great one that I can’t wait to share with you!
