The Perfect Tee

TOP: Lush (only $32 and so many colors!) || PANTS: Vici Dolls (also come in black) || SHOES: BP || BAG: Chloe Drew Bag (almost identical here) || SUNGLASSES: BP

I absolutely love this top! It is light and comfy, so it is perfect for warmer weather. I have already had it on repeat and can't wait to pair it with jean shorts and cute hat. These jeans, which you have seen a time or two on here or instagram, are my fave! They are stretchy like leggings but fit like jeans. They have the perfect amount of distress giving it a little edge to your typical white pants outfit. I also have them in black and literally wear them all the time.

On a side note, I just found out there's a rumor that Victoria's Secret will no longer sell swim. I was so, so sad to hear that! I have been getting my swimsuits from there for years. I love the fit and they always have such good sales, so you get a good price for the quality and style. I definitely have to stock up on some favorites and find a new favorite swimsuit store! Where do you get your swimwear? Let me know in the comments below! XO

White & Blush Inspo

TOP: The Limited (sold out) very similar at Boohoo || More Blush Tops: Lush (blog post on this top here), Dottie Couture (love!), Vici Dolls,  || PANTS: Zara (similar) || SHOES: Jeffrey Campbell

Before I go on about the outfit, just wanted to give you a heads up the pants and top in the photos are no longer in stock (so sorry!) but I decided to post this outfit anyway for outfit inspiration. I did link a few super cute blush tops above that I found that are in stock at the moment. White pants, blush top, and nude heels are one of my favorite combos! It is so feminine, classy, and perfect for spring/summer. Also, I have had my eyes on these wedges since last summer and when I finally caved in to buying them, I waited four months for restock and now they have them in stock in all but one size! I sized half a size up and they fit perfectly and are so comfortable to walk in. I am so glad I bought them and you will definitely be seeing them often!

On a side note, this drink!! If you follow me on Instagram, you already know about my obsession! It is the strawberry acai refresher with lemonade instead of water. It is the perfect fruity summer drink and literally so refreshing. I crave it daily! I have been nervous to look at the sugar and calorie count on it because I am 100% this isn't "healthy" but I have to have my indulgences and if you find out, don't spill the beans haha! But really... definitely a must try if you're into sweet fruity drinks!

Stripe Sweater Dress

DRESS: Monki (comes in black with white stripes too!) || SHOES: Vince Camuto || BAG: Chloe Drew Bag, Dupe here ($26!) || SUNGLASSES: BP (only $12!) Here is a Kate Spade pair I found (if you want to splurge on a leopard pair)

You will learn very quickly that I absolutely LOVE stripes! This striped sweater dress from ASOS is the perfect transition dress. I bought it a few weeks ago, but it got too hot out to ever wear it since the material is thin sweater-like. I was finally able to wear it this weekend since it dropped in the low 70s and it was so comfortable, not too hot. I love it paired with these booties and the pop of pink gave it a little touch of spring. I will have it on repeat and can't wait to pair it with a blanket scarf and closed toe booties in the fall! 

Also, don't miss out on a few of the great giveaways I have going on on the blog and Instagram! It is so easy to enter and we have had some great winners so far! XO

Black Lace Dress

DRESS: Prom Girl || CLUTCH: Aldo || SHOES: Steve Madden || NAILS: OPI (gel)

I wore this dress to my best friend's wedding and it was perfect for the occasion! I love the lace detail especially at the neck line and sleeves. I bought this dress in blush around the same time, which is just gorgeous, but I ended up returning it because I had too much to alter in such little time and close friends/family ended up wearing black so this one fit right in. I still have heart eyes all over it every time I see it so I am totally getting it for a maternity shoot or whatever excuse I can find (not hinting anything lol!) 

This lace dress comes in a few other colors so it is also perfect for wedding parties or other formal events. I had never ordered from this site before, but ended up ordering it in my true size and it fit like a glove. It also comes with a built in bra so I just slipped it on and was ready to go. The bottom was maybe a tad too long, but with these heels it was off the ground enough to not trip all over it so I didn't worry about altering it. I was also a little nervous because the lace looked shiny online but it doesn't look like that at all in person. I really loved this dress and highly recommend it! 

Side note: These pictures were taken at the hotel we stayed at in Arizona. 
I talk more about it in this post.
Also, if there is anyone that would like a tutorial on this hair style let me know in a comment below.  I would love to share!

Neutral Outfit & Cardigan Finds

Cardigan: Vici Dolls || Tank Top: Dottie Couture (sold out, similar here and here) || Pants: Vici Dolls || Shoes: Vince Camuto || Sunglasses: Ray Bans || Bag: Prada

This is one of my favorite outfits. I love wearing neutrals and I especially love the cardigan! Cardigans are a closet staple. They can be worn all year round: with a blanket scarf in the winter, over your bathing suit or shorts in the summer, or over a tank in the spring. I also love how easily it can be taken on or off if you get too hot or cold. I have linked a few cardigans I found below. I left a little description under each link in case you didn't want to go through each link or had an idea of what you were looking for. Also, I noticed duster cardigans are in right now, and I love them! I linked a few of those as well!

Macbook Air + Canon Rebel Kit

Hello Sunshine

TOP: Lush (on sale in different colors here) || JEANS: Vici Dolls || SHOES: BP || SUNGLASSES: Ray Bans || BAG: Celine Luggage Phantom || WATCH: Michael Kors

I could not be loving this perfect spring weather any more! We took these photos in a beautiful cactus garden we found on our last day in Arizona. I love the pop of yellow with the background! We had breakfast at the Henry that morning (which if you are in the area I highly recommend it for breakfast/brunch) and then headed to the airport. We ended up missing our connecting flight by literally thirty seconds and watched them close the door. Initially we were bummed out, but they were able to book us on the last flight of the day. So, we got to spend our day in Arizona rather than on layovers and ended up getting home at the same time. 

I love wearing bright colors this time of year! I wore this outfit around the city and on the way home. These shoes are super comfortable to walk around in, but I especially LOVE this top! I have it in two other colors and is easily one of my favorite tops. I love the v-neck and flowy sleeves the most. It is super lightweight and can be dressed in so many different ways. I would look so good with shorts in the summer or tucked in a pencil skirt with cute heels. I have also had a slight obsession with ripped jeans lately, these are my favorite, so you will definitely be seeing these on repeat!

Cold Shoulder

TOP: Dottie Couture (sold out in exact style but I'm linking cold shoulder tops from them that I also LOVE here, here, here and here) Also found this one that is almost exact: Make Me Chic (only $12) PANTS: Zara (similar) SHOES: Sam Edelman BAG: Prada

I have been loving the cold shoulder trend! I feel like the cold shoulder is a more "covered up" version of the off the shoulder look (which I also love!) while still showing just enough skin. It's perfect for when it is a bit too cold out for an off the shoulder top or when you want to cover up a bit. I wore this outfit on a date night in the city with my husband. It was a little chilly that evening so having a little sleeve kept me just warm enough. Also, I know you have probably seen these shoes EVERYWHERE by now, but they truly are so comfortable to walk in and worth the investment. We walked across the city after dinner to get some gelato that I was craving and I had no problem in them. I wanted birthday cake gelato for the longest time, but when we got there they didn't have any (boo!) so I settled for Reese's and another flavor with caramel in it and oh my it was still so good!

TOP: h&m (in store) similar here and here | PANTS: Forever 21 (linked similar) | SHOES: BP | WATCH: Michael Kors | RESORT: Arizona Grand Resort and Spa

You will quickly learn that I LOVE anything with stripes! It is one of my favorite prints that can be mixed and matched so many different ways. I wore this outfit as we traveled from California to Arizona in March. We had breakfast in Cali that morning, flew to Arizona and explored our hotel for a bit before changing and meeting our friends that were getting married the next day. Our hotel was called the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa. Our stay was so short, just for the weekend, so we didn't get to enjoy the huge water park they had that we heard good things about. The resort was really pretty and the rooms were nice and spacey. That afternoon, we ended up getting manis with the 'almost' married couple which I think my husband enjoyed more than I did (LOL!) and then helped finish up some last minute details.

I wore these shoes several times during our trip and they were so comfortable to walk in. I highly recommend them. I love wearing them to dress up jeans or leggings but they would also look so good with a cute swing dress!

Longsleeve Floral Dress

DRESS: Ivy City Co | HAT: Forever 21 Also found this, I mean (insert heart eyes emoji) | SHOES: Sam Edelman

When I saw this floral dress, I had to have it! I was shopping around for new spring dresses and this one was perfect! I absolutely love the floral print! I am in love with floral print as it is but haven't found one that was on the "darker" side that I liked as much as this one. The cute line of buttons at the neck line also totally won me over. It is so light and effortless and can be worn for so many different occasions: church, wedding, date night, vacation and even thoughout the year. How cute would it be with a wool hat and booties! 

On a side note, I finally figured out how to make my pictures the same size (LOL) and am trying to get this whole editing thing down... I also enjoy hearing feedback from those of you that have been following my blog! You guys are the best! XO!
