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!

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!

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!

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!

Spring & Easter Dress Options

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Hope y’all are having a great week so far! I have a short week this week as I’m taking Friday off to finally shoot our engagement photos and then head on a mini vacay right after that!! Woot woot! Love me a long weekend!

This week I wanted to share with you one of my favorite dresses for spring and summer along with some fun dress options for Easter next weekend! This dress below is from Old Navy and is one of my favorite dresses they have ever sold! I know that’s a heavy statement but this dress is so light weight and comfortable, perfect for spring and summer here in Florida but there is a plus…this dress has a hidden button between the first and second button that guarantees there won’t be any gaping hole between buttons, this is a game changer! If struggled with tops and dresses that button my whole life and this is amazing! I talked a bit about this on my stories as well @lifestyle_w_laramie if you want to check it out! Anyways this dress comes in a few different colors and patterns and just an overall must have in your closet! It’s perfect for the office, brunch, shopping you name it, I’m wearing this dress everywhere!

Old Navy is killing it in the dress department this season so I’m including some of my favorite below! They are great Easter options as well as just spring/summer dress options to have in your closet! I practically live in dresses during the hotter months so I love having so many options!

What do y’all do for the Easter holiday? Do you have a big celebration or is it more of a casual day? Let me know below!


Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July ya'll!

Some of my favorite memories with my family are spending the 4th in Michigan with all our extended family cooking out and watching the fireworks over the lake! I haven't been to Michigan in the summer time for a couple years but if you ever have the chance I highly recommend it! The town has a parade and blueberry festival along with so many other fun activities for the 4th!

Here's my fun take on red, white, and blue for the 4th of July. I've been loving pieces from Loft lately and they have some super fun pieces for summer currently! Both the shorts and navy top are from Loft and were super discounted, I got both pieces for under $35. Loft always has some of the best sales around especially when it comes to mark downs on top of sale prices! 

I paired this look with some fun sandals from Old Navy and my Coach purse. I love a great deal and designer bags are no exception! I always try if possible to grab a bag when it is on sale or has made it to the outlet store. This bag was a investment piece but you can't beat the quality and I've worn it almost everyday this year, definitely worth the money!

I hope you all enjoy this look and have an amazing 4th of July! Let me know what your favorite summer looks and activities are! Do you have any fun trips planned? Let me know!

Hamptons Vibes

Happy Wednesday ya'll! Summer is in full swing, especially here in FL and this has to be one of my favorite looks to date! i snagged this Vince Camuto Jumpsuit from TJ Maxx for only $40 isn't that amazing! I love a great deal on high end pieces and TJ Maxx never disappoints. This look is very different from what I'm used to, more bold, bright, and colorful but as long as you like it and feel confident in it that's all that matters! Right?! 

I'm sharing this fun look with you below, as well as the accessory details so keep scrolling and check it out!

This look gives me all the resort feels and makes me feel like I'm in The Hamptons on a vacay! What accessory gives you all the vacay feels? A big floppy hat of course! This LC by Lauren Conrad hat has been my everything since the moment I purchased it! It goes great with everything and is perfect for the beach, pool, picnics, you name it! 

I finished the looks with some pink wedges and gold oval hoop earrings keeping the accessories minimal and clean since the jumper is so loud and vibrant. Jumpers and rompers have quickly become my favorite look this summer since they are so easy and perfect for the heat! 

So between the V-neck on the jumper, the print, the accessories, this looks can really take you anywhere! I've worn this to work paired with a sweater and the same wedges. I've worn it to a conference/event and out to eat! This is perfect for pretty much anywhere and you don't have to try to hard! What do you think of this look and are you loving jumpers just as much as me this season? Let me know!

T-Shirt Shop Series Take 2: Look 1

You all loved the T-shirt Shop Series earlier this year and asked me to bring it back, so here it is! Summer is coming to a close but let's face it here in Florida I'll be wearing T-shirts for a few more months as the temps are still high. I recently visited my hometown of Sarasota, FL and while I was there we made a trip to The Ringling Museum. **Side not if you have never been definitely make a trip and visit this museum, it's one of my favorite places in SRQ and the art is unreal!** Anyways back to our look, the museum is huge and has several different parts both inside and outside, regardless you do a lot of walking. Lots of walking calls for a cute and comfortable outfit especially when outside in the heat. So of course my go to was a cute T and some denim shorts and printed sneakers all from my favorite, Old Navy. The museum is on the water so my t-shirt has a fun saying on it to give the outfit something fun! I will link everything below for you guys! Let me know what your current favorite t-shirts are and where you like to shop!
