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!

L-O-V-E & Valentines

Happy almost Valentine’s Day!

This is another super fun and Valentine’s inspired look for y’all! I grabbed this LOVE sweater from Old Navy during Christmas time funny enough and saved it for this month because it was a perfect fit! I paired it with my favorite high waisted shorts from Loft, pink Pumas from TJ Maxx and pink Michael Kors crossbody! I love a great sporty look and this one is so fun and kind of reminds me of old school jock sweaters, does anyone else love the movie Grease?! Anyway this is a great look if you are doing something casual tomorrow or maybe going shopping or brunch this weekend!

Travis and I have never been huge on the holiday, we don’t need a holiday to show how much we love each other but that’s just us. We actually have never had a good Valentine’s Day anyways and there is to much pressure on this holiday as it is. This year we are keeping it super low key, going out to our favorite BBQ spot and not worrying about pre-fixed menus, again that’s just us, to each his own.

To be honest I just love the pink and red and all the half off candy the day after Valentine’s Day, anyone else? Probably the best park about Valentine’s Day especially when I was younger and single was running to Target the day after Valentine’s and buying myself flowers and chocolate, buying myself a gift! LOL! It’s so important to love yourself first! Self love is key, don’t let a holiday change your mind or think that you have to be with someone, just saying.

Anyways enough of my rambling about this holiday! We are headed home this weekend for a special collaboration as well as tons of wedding planning! I will be taking you all along on IG and sharing more here on the blog when we get back! For now let me know what you have planned for tomorrow, or what outfit you’ll be sporting!

Give Me All The Hearts

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

Sorry for the hiatus in January, but I’m back and so excited to share my first Valentine’s look with y’all! This is probably one of my favorite looks to date! You all know I love a good graphic t-shirt and this conversation heart one from Nordstrom is super soft and comfy! I paired it with other pieces I already had in my closet. The skirt is from Loft, I actually showed you a different way to wear it last Valentine’s Day along with velvet Nine West pumps and a fun pink Michael Kors bag! This look is just so fun and festive without being serious and could be great for spring too! Again everything you see was on sale!

It’s becoming more important to me to purchase key pieces to change a look or that I can already wear with other pieces I have in my closet! This T-shirt I believe was $34 but the rest of the look I already had, but it changed the look enough that I had a whole different outfit! Just like everyone else I love a great deal and changing up my closet!

What is your go to Valentine’s Day look? Do you like more casual or are you more of a full glam kind of girl? Let me know in the comments!!

Classic Casual Look

Hey guys! Hope you're having a great week so far! Quick life update for you I'm gearing up for a busy fall. We are headed to Vegas this month, possibly planning some beach trips for September, and I'm boarding my first cruise ship in October. I have weddings booked, wedding planning for my own big day, and starting to plan for the holidays, I seriously need more time in a day, anyone else? 

Anyways...I've got a classic Laramie look for y'all today. When it's not boiling outside a look like this is pretty much my go to. I love everything girly and dressy don't get me wrong but I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl through and through. Old Navy has always had some of my favorite jeans and I love a good distressed pair of denim! Paired with a fun t-shirt with some embroidery from Loft and fun flats (again from Old Navy) add some sunnies and I'm good to go anywhere. This look in total is under $50, you know I love me a sale!!! I hope you love this look!

Let me know what you would like to see next on the blog? Do you want to see some beauty products? Transitional pieces going into fall from summer? 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!

Classic Blue

Happy Friday you guys! This is the start of some Easter/spring dress options for you. This sweet baby blue with white detailed number is of course from Old Navy. I paired it with nude Nine West heels from TJ Maxx and my Coach bag. This is a great look for the holiday, especially is you are going to church, a family gathering, or somewhere you need to dress a little more modest. This dress is super comfortable and easy to dress up or down just by changing out the shoes and the bag. Probably my favorite place to shop for spring and summer dresses is definitely Old Navy, of course super affordable pieces that are well made and fun! *Fun side note for you, Old Navy gave me my first job as a sales associate at 16 and I can tell you that the pieces and quality have only gotten better since then!* I very much appreciate that there is something there for everyone! 

What are you all doing for Easter? Do you want to see more holiday related looks or recipes? Let me know below!

Blushing Pink

We are gearing up for spring which means I'm pulling out my pastels, my favorite! This is one of my favorite outfits to go from a day at the office to happy hour after work. I really love to have pieces in my closet that are easy to wear casually or dress them up, versatility is key! This top is from Loft on sale, skirt is TJ Maxx and shoes are from Nordstrom Rack. All classic pieces that can mix and match with other things! This is also a great look for Easter coming up and I'll be posting some great dresses for the holiday as well in the next few weeks! Make sure to keep an eye out! 

Poppin' Pink

Happy February Everyone! With Valentine's Day only weeks away I'm pulling together a few Valentine's looks for y'all! What better way to be festive than with a pop of pink! This is one of my favorite looks for Valentine's Day, it's perfect for the office or date night...or both! I'm loving the classic black flare skirt with the pop of pink and black t-strap heels! It's perfect for all my girls out there that don't want to be in your face Valentine's but still festive! 

If this is still to bold for you try just incorporate some accessories that are for the holiday! Maybe a heart necklace or pink or red bag, something along those lines would be perfect with a solid black dress or jeans and a top!

What is your go to Valentine's look? Do you love the super girly look or like something less pink? Let me know below! 

Happy Holly Days

Christmas is officially 10 days away! I swear I blink on Halloween and suddenly it's Christmas! Anyone else feel that way? I am done with shopping (except for online) since the stores are manic and am so excited to share this next holiday look with y'all.

 This midi dress from Old Navy is perfect for the holidays especially in this red! A plus, it's under $50 and super comfortable and wearable throughout the whole year! I paired it with some velvet blush heels from TJ Maxx to keep with the holiday feel as well as velvet bag from Kohl's. I've been loving the velvet trend lately which I'm sure you all can see in this look and several upcoming looks as well! The velvet adds a luxurious feel to the look and is super festive as well! 

Let me know what you all love to wear during this time of year as well as shop this look below!
