OH MY DISNEY EVENT RECAP

20 August 2018

Last week Freddy and I went to an event at our local Disney store to celebrate the launch of the new Oh My Disney apparel collection! You may have seen me post about it on my Instagram stories, but I had been looking forward to this event for weeks! I first found out about it by reading the Oh My Disney blog (which is amazing if you've never read it) and I immediately called our Scottsdale Disney store to get the details. I obviously planned on bringing Freddy with...


J. CREW X ABIGAIL BORG

18 August 2018

When I saw that J. Crew was launching a new collection that consisted mainly of floral prints, I was ALL over it! Based on my recent posts (like this one and this one) then you'll know I've been obsessing over floral prints lately. These weren't just any florals though, they were designed by English textile designer Abigail Borg. I was immediately drawn to the beautiful details within each pattern and the muted jewel tones used throughout the collection....


MY FAVORITE UNDERGARMENTS

16 August 2018

With the new fall season on the horizon, I'm so excited to start refreshing my wardrobe and incorporating new pieces that are perfect for the cooler weather. While I'm excited to incorporate some new sweaters and jackets in my closet, the undergarments for those clothes are just as important. It's not always the most fun thing to invest in, but I've learned the importance of refreshing my intimates every 6 months-1 year; it really does make a difference in how I feel..


BELIEVING IN YOUR SELF-WORTH

13 August 2018

This is a topic that's been on my heart lately, and I wasn't sure if it was something I wanted to post about. It can be scary sharing personal opinions on the internet sometimes, not sure how people will react or respond. I think that's the one part of blogging I haven't quite gotten comfortable with (even after 3 years!). I find it's easier to post about outfits and leave out the personal stuff, but as I've been praying about it more, I think it's better to share all of that stuff than to...


SOME LIKE IT HOT

25 July 2018

I've mentioned before on the blog that I would define my style as timeless, feminine and classic, gravitating towards pieces that I can pull out of my closet again and again. While that is true 90% of the time, when it's 115 degrees outside sometimes you just have to throw on the easiest thing (like this tank top that's on sale for $12!) and go with it! Honestly, when it's that hot, nothing is exactly comfortable and no matter what you decide to put on, you're...


HOW TO WEAR THE MIDI DRESS

19 July 2018

I've been getting into a fall state of mind as I've been browsing all of the amazing finds on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which opens to the public tomorrow!) this past week. It's hard to even say that when it's still 100 degrees and 50% humidity here in Arizona, but if I just imagine I'm somewhere cold that usually does the trick. One trend that I keep seeing a lot of is midi-length skirts and dresses. I used to think that a midi-length skirt or dress was awkward and on...


NEON FLORALS

16 July 2018

I've grown very fond of this quote over the past few years. It's a great reminder for me when things don't go as I planned. It can be so much easier to complain when things don't go our way, but I'm reminded to be thankful for the beautiful things in my life (big and small) and to put greater emphasis on those things. Life is absolutely a gift, and I've felt the need to slow down and take that in more and more this past week. Work has been super hectic this past week...


SUMMER SWIMWEAR GUIDE

05 July 2018

I've always felt that July 4th signifies the peak of the summer season. It's the ultimate summer holiday, with everyone barbecuing to their hearts content, playing in the pool, or doing any outdoors related activity. It's also very fitting that today is "National Bikini Day" so I thought I would round up some of my favorite swimsuits for summer...


SUMMER FLORALS + A DAY aT THE PARK

03 July 2018

I've mentioned before on the blog that Freddy and I don't get very many days off together in a month. Whenever we do have a day off together, it usually involves running errands of some sort (because grocery shopping + Costco) but we always try to do something FUN together too! Not that strolling through Target isn't fun... This past Sunday we met up with some friends at a local park and enjoyed an outdoor concert--it was so much fun! It was the last concert of the...


FREE PEOPLE FLORAL MAXI

30 June 2018

I think it's fun to see how our style evolves over the years. I've had this Free People dress for probably 5 years now (I didn't think it had been that long! I feel old...) and at the time I was really into bohemian style. Free People was my favorite store at the time, and while I couldn't afford everything in there, this dress spoke to me and I knew I had to...
