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!



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

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!

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!


The Perfect Shoe...For Everyone with Shoes of Prey

Ya'll know I love a good pair of shoes! It's no secret that my closet is filled with every kind of shoes and no lie the line from the movie, In Her Shoes about how clothes don't always look good but shoes always fit is everything! I will never turn away from shoes! Growing up however I always hated my feet, I have a wide foot and finding shoes was a struggle when I was a kid. Even to this day in most brands I have to size up a half size to make up for my wide foot. So I must admit when I saw the range of sizes and widths from Shoes of Prey I had heart eyes!

Shoes of Prey allows you to design and personalize your own shoes! Really, how cool is that?! Like I mentioned they offer extended shoe sizes, US 2-15 and in narrow, wide, and extra wide widths in most styles! I created a super girly pair of heels in the style Ives 70 designed with White Nappa Leather and Rose Gold Metallic Leather, they are what dreams are made of! I just love that you are in charge of every detail in your custom made shoes! They are also so comfortable and beautifully made and packaged! The box, the wrapping, every detail is stunning!  Want your own pair of custom shoes? Click here to check out Shoes of Prey plus I have a coupon code (LARAMIE) for free custom inscription in your new shoes, I put the name of my blog as my inscription in my custom beauties! 

Summer Night Out

Summer is probably my favorite season next to spring not only for the beach days and fun trips but the fashion! I love the bright colors and fun accessories. Summer is a time to be playful and just have fun and what better way to do that than with your wardrobe? Am I right?! Some of my best memories and fashion moments have definitely been in the summer time which is why I'm so excited to share this look with ya'll!

Date night usually consist of myself wearing skinny jeans and a cute (usually black or white) top and wedges. So I've decided to switch it up a bit, with the FL sunshine as hot as ever you don't need an excuse to wear a sundress. This is one of my go to's for summer, yes I know it has long sleeves but this dress is the lightest most breathable cotton and the sleeves eliminate having to bring a sweater to happy hour or the movies. I added the fun pineapple clutch for that fun summer touch and some nude wedges that are the most comfortable things ever, and with a fiance who's over 6 ft. tall I tend to sway towards wedges when I can (short girl here). 

You can find the dress and clutch at Old Navy and the wedges at Nordstrom Rack, but currently tons of places have cute sun dresses and wedges, including Target, Loft, and TJ Maxx! I've linked these pieces below for you to shop the look!

Let me know what you think of this look and what you like to wear on a date night in the summer time!!


T-Shirt Shop Series Take 2: Look 2

In case you haven't noticed pineapples are still a huge trend and this look embodies the pineapple and foiled trends that are currently happening. In the last T-Shirt Shop Series I brought you another pineapple look that was more bold, unlike this one that is more toned down. This has been one of my go to looks this summer especially on Sundays when I'm running around doing errands. You can't get more simple than jeans and T-shirt like I've said many times before but it's true and throw on a hat and it's the ultimate laid back look perfect for busy days! Like always pieces will be linked below and let me know if you love pineapples or a different current trend!
