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...

NATIONAL SUNGLASSES DAY

27 June 2018

In honor of National Sunglasses Day (and my love for a great pair of sunnies) I decided to round up my favorite styles in a few key categories! I love that we're seeing more playful shapes and designs when it comes to sunglasses. Protecting our eyes doesn't have to be boring! I feel like you can really have fun with this accessory and choose one based on...


A TRIED-AND-TRUE CLASSIC DRESS

25 June 2018

When I'm out shopping or browsing online, there are certain pieces that speak to me, and those pieces are typically very feminine, classic and timeless. Whether it's a blouse, a skirt or a dress, I'm almost always drawn to things that can stand the test of time or can be worn multiple ways for different occasions. I've never really been into trends, since they come and go so often, but the trends that I'll try are ones I can incorporate into my everyday style. For example, when...


A CASUAL, FAMILY DINNER LOOK

21 June 2018

It's been so nice to relax and unwind after we got home from an amazing 4 days in Chicago. For some reason I was feeling exhausted and unable to catch up on sleep for a good week after we got back. I'm not sure if it was due to the time change or just because we had been so busy walking around every day. You know those moments when you feel


DAYS 3 & 4 OF OUR CHICAGO ADVENTURE

18 June 2018

The third day of our Chicago trip was more chill, which was just what we needed. We didn't realize how tired we would be walking around the city so much! We slept in and walked across the street to Everybody’s Coffee for bagel sandwiches and our morning pick-me-up. Then we saw Solo: A Star Wars Story in theaters (I thought it was SO good!) and walked around Milwaukee Ave, which is filled with cute vintage shops, while snacking on Stan’s Donuts. We had to..
