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!

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!

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!

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?

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!
