How I Stopped Shaving My Legs

I had no intention of sharing this on the blog, but after the last few weeks, I am completely in awe of not having to shave every day!! That's every girl's dream, am I right? Here's the backstory....

Black and White Patio Inspo

The closer we get to decorating our new home, the more excited I get! This weekend, we went through the house to measure out a few things and then spent some time chilling on our back porch. It's so peaceful and the perfect area to unwind. I can't wait to decorate it and want to create a space that's sleek, stylish, yet still comfortable!

SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup (5/3 to 5/10)

How are we almost halfway through May!?!? Time is going by SO fast!! Last week was a blur, but super busy/fun hence the absence of last week's roundup. My brother (he's in med school) was in town for a few days so I spent last Friday with him at Carowinds. Every year year there are middle school (and maybe high school) band competitions where schools in the state spend the day at Carowinds to have their performance and then ride rides all day. Well, unknowingly we went the same day of the competitions and there were kids everywhere! I mean packed haha! Fun fact, we actually were both in band way back when and got to do the same thing haha! Needless to say, the lines were super long because the groups were huge and we didn't want to waste the day waiting only to ride a few rides. We upgraded to fast passes which cost more than the tickets themselves (eyeroll) but it made for such a fun day! The longest we had to wait was maybe ten minutes on a ride and so thankful for the time we got to spend together! We were always pretty close growing up so it's nice getting to spend time together in the midst of our busy lives. Anyways, the next day was the surprise party for one of my husband and I's best friend. I was in charge of decorating, so Saturday was spent running around getting all that together! You all LOVED!!! the balloon arch so I'll link all the details I used below. Anyways, that's enough for a life update or I could go on forever! 

As always, scroll through for outfit details of the week- including an Amazon and Nordstrom try-on haul, sale alerts and the top sellers of the week! Have a great weekend everyone!!

SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup (4/19 to 4/26)

I'm so happy I'm off this weekend, but boy oh boy is this Friday rough! I have a to-do list a mile long and zero energy to do it! I have to do a call shift every schedule period and this week it was Monday and then had my regular 12 hour shifts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Crazy me was like, well I have to do three days in a row so might as well do one more and go into overtime hahah! And well, here we are four days later and my body is not my friend today lol and we signed up for a 5k tomorrow so that's going to be fun haha! Anyways, last weekend we went around a few countertop stores and think we found "the one" for our kitchen! I loved one in particular on the sample board, but when we saw the full slab, there were specs in it that I was not a fan of and although it was still the best out of all we saw, I hated having to settle for that one. That was until we walked out of the warehouse and saw one being lifted up and oh my goodness is it a beauty! It was a newer one they didn't have a sample out yet. I can't wait to show you guys!!! So many other house updates but I'll save that for another time :) For now, here are all my LTK/IG posts of the week, top 5 sellers and a list of sale alerts at the end. If you're a beauty lover, there's a huge sale going on you don't want to miss! As always, let me know if you have any questions :)
Have a great weekend!!

Four Spring/Summer Outfits From Walmart

Walmart has really stepped up their game and is quickly becoming the next "one stop shop" for all your Spring and Summer needs! I rounded up four different outfits from Walmart including the perfect vacation look, one for the fitness guru featuring $10 leggings, the cutest button down ruffle dress and the girly girl ready for her next social event or bride looking for a white dress for her bridal shower or brunch. The We Dress America section at Walmart has a ton more great, affordable options  to have you covered for all of your Spring/Summer events! Which look is your favorite?

SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup (4/12 to 4/19)

Welcome to SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup! I'm going to be rounding up each week's IG posts, top 5 best sellers, and a roundup of weekend sales every Friday! I have loved doing SimplyLovely Fan Faves every month, but it was a struggle because by the end of the month, some of the top sellers were either out of stock or no longer on sale, etc. so this is basically SimplyLovely Fan Faves except every week instead of every month! I also know a lot of you guys don't like using the app or can't keep up with Instagram Stories all weekend long where I usually share sale alerts, so I want this to be a place to get easy access to sales going on every weekend, get first dibs on the most popular items I share and most of all have access to it all weekend long without worrying about it expiring like it does on stories. I would love your feedback so feel free to let me know in the comments below :)

My Ulta Haul

I asked, you voted!
Here is a roundup of items I got from Ulta today. I wanted to get a few new makeup products to try out. I don't really wear full coverage makeup- if I want to wear some coverage with a little bit of a glow, I opt for this favorite product of mine. I have been watching quite a few makeup videos and reading reviews on the best of the best products so I picked them up today in order to experiment with a fuller coverage on days I want to glam up a little bit :)  There's a few all time favorites on the list that were refills so those are obviously keepers

Simply Lovely Fan Faves January 2019

Starting the week with Simply Lovely Fan Faves January 2018 edition! If you're new around here, I'm sharing YOUR top five favorites from the month and my number one top favorite purchase. I'm a little late to share this month's round-up, but luckily they are all still in stock and some of these items are on sale! If you missed last month's round-up, can check out December 2018 Simply Lovely Fan Favorites post HERE.

This has been a favorite cardigan of mine since I got it a few months ago because of the waffle knit detail and statement buttons! It’s also very cozy and soft! There are more color options and often goes on sale. It does go in and out of stock all the time, so if you don’t catch it in stock in your size, keep checking back.

I got this top right at the end of January and it surpassed other top sellers very quickly, for good reason! I got my true size as it is an oversized fit and love that you can wear it loose and flowy like I shared on IG stories with white jeans for a baby boy baby shower, but also looks good tucked in the front with jeans or bow tied in the front. It also makes for a great workwear piece over classic pants or a high waisted pair. Obviously a very versatile closet staple :)

Look familiar? This was the only December top seller that made it on January Fan Faves and it’s currently on major sale! I have the pink version and sized up one size for a looser fit. It’s a soft knit with the cutest button detail in the back. It comes in a few other colors that make for great Spring transition sweaters.

These. Pants. Are. Amazing!! I’m not going to lie, I went through several sizes of these pants before I found the perfect fit, but I’m so glad I didn’t give up on them! They are SO flattering and obsessed with the chic style the bow detail adds! I’m 5’4 and 24 in jeans for reference and decided on the short because the regular length came down to my foot so the hem kind of sat on my shoe and folded weirdly not giving me the ankle length I was going for as pictured in the model photo. I’ve worn these pants with both heels and flats and they’re just so adorable! They are currently on sale, so I am getting another color ASAP!
SUNGLASSES // TURTLENECK // PANTS // SHOES (similar pair here)

A sweater you can wear with leggings?! Yes please! This lightweight tunic with a high low hem is a great basic piece for a casual day out with leggings or dressed up a bit with jeans! This exact color is on sale as is the navy and mustard but also comes in a pretty light pink.
TOP (more colors on sale here) // jeans // booties


I had several favorite purchases this month, but this jumpsuit wins the prize for number one favorite! I’ve been wearing it SO much around the house and constantly reaching for it when I know I’m going to be home for the day or to turn down for the evening! I wish you guys can feel how soft and stretchy it is!!


Most of the pictures above made it in the top 5, but the very top liked picture on IG this month was this one:

Followed by this one for a close second:
HOODIE (updated version) // JOGGERS // SLIPPERS (similar pair) // MUG (From Charming Charlie, similar mugs linked HERE)


This is hands down my favorite IG post of January and probably favorite outfit in a while! If you haven't jumped on the athleisure trend, you're missing out! This was one of the first times I went into athleisure mode and looking stylish and still being so comfortable is the best for a busy day running errands and maybe, just maybe, getting a workout in haha! These shoes were also my favorite December purchase, and I still can't say enough good things about them! I'm normally a 7-7.5...a 7 fit perfectly.

I hope you all enjoy these posts!! Let me know if you have any other "favorites" you'd like me to share and which outfit was your favorite in the comments below :)

Neutral Spring Shoes

Hello Spring Shoes!! 
I did some Spring shoe shopping today and decided to round up some of my favorite finds/what I bought! I laughed at this roundup because I didn't realize I stuck to the neutral color scheme until I put it all together on here haha! I obviously favor neutrals because they go with anything, but almost all of these come in a ton of different colors! I will link these shoes and a ton more I found below.

I especially love wedges or block heels for Spring/Summer because they are so comfortable to wear since majority of the time you're dressed up for walking around/hanging out the whole day since it's so nice out! It's been in the 60-70s this week so I've got major Spring Fever and can't wait to share ways to style these beauties in the coming weeks!

Which ones are your favorite?

Galentine’s Day Gift Ideas

Who says Valentine's Day is only for couples?! Enjoy some time with your girlfriends for some Galentine's Day fun! Today, I'm partnering with and sharing a few cute finds to spoil your friends or even yourself this Valentine's Day.
If you've never heard of, it's a boutique marketplace where many different brands sell a wide variety of items such as clothes, beauty & wellness items, shoes, accessories, toys, unique finds and much more at such great prices! Many of these deals change daily, so if you find something you love, be sure to check out quick! (Click HERE to view their Galentine’s Day selections).
One of my favorite way to spoil my girls for Galentine’s Day is to gift them a basket of fun items they can use to spoil themselves. Think makeup, spa products, cute tee shirts and of course, you can't forget the sweets....after all, it is Valentine's Day :) A little makeup bag filled with a lipgloss or some of your favorite makeup products is a great gift idea that they can use even months after Valentine's Day.

Below, are the links to the exact sellers from to the items shared in this post. If they are no longer available, be sure to submit your email for a restock notification.

Thank you for sponsoring today's post. As always, all opinions are my own.

SimplyLovely Fan Faves December 2018

I'm so excited to start Simply Lovely Fan Favorites again this year! I started it sometime last year but well, school aka survival mode lol! I will share 5 top sellers from the month,  5 most liked photos on IG and my personal favorite purchase of the month with you all! I love looking over analytics to see which pictures/items you all loved the most so I hope you do too! Enjoy!


This item is currently on sale and LOVE it! It's very soft and I can't believe it comes in 25 colors making it perfect for any room in the house! It also makes for a great year round gift! I have the grey one and use it daily whether as a throw for a decor piece or for a snuggle on the couch for a Netflix binge or movie!

This was one of my favorite purchases because a white basic sweater goes with everything this time of year! This comes in more colors and makes a great layering piece or can be worn alone. I've worn it a few times on IG, but my favorite look is probably paired with loungewear pants in THIS post.

These have easily been my most worn shoes all year and have been a lifesaver from everyday to clinicals. They still look professional, but can be easily be dressed up or down! I've worn them countless times-you can see how I styled them on my Instagram! PS they're currently on sale and come in tons of other colors.

Love this sweater! It's super soft, oversized and cozy-not to mention can be worn with leggings! It also comes in a muted pink and currently on sale!

Last, but not least is this key hole sweater. I posted it in the pink version and it's made it on the list of top Instagram posts- you all realllyyyyy loved this one and I do to! It's such a great fit and the detail on the back gives it the perfect touch!

This one was easy! There are so many favorite purchases, but I can't say enough good things about these shoes and love that you can wear them dressed for athleisure or an everyday look like the ones HERE. The reviews on sizing are a little confusing so I ordered two sizes to try but usually wear 7-7.5 and found that 7 fits perfect. 6.5 was a little too tight. They come in more colors and just simply amazing!!
