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.

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?

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!

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!

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!
