Easy To Re-Create Outfit

TEE: Madewell (own this in a few colors) | DENIM: AG (similar under $100!) | DENIM JACKET: BP | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton (similar style) | SHOES: Vince Camuto (similar style) | HAT: Janessa Leone (similar on sale here) | WATCH: Michele | SUNGLASSES: Celine | LIPS: #1 + Spice + Undressed | NECKLACE: Love Always 

These are my favorite white tees - I have them in a few colors and LOVE them. I have two of this white one because I wear them so often. I wear a size small in them! (My favorite one is the grey color, though!) My outfit is pretty basic but I love this look because its practical and great for spring transitional weather. (We had some cooler temps yesterday.)

Yesterday we went to church and grabbed lunch at Panera and spent so much time outside with Fitz and he was loving life. Fitz is such a family dog - it cracks me up. He loves to be right between John & me! :) Lately he's been sleeping underneath our bed (for naps) and its hysterical bc he is too big but he sure squeezes under there!! 

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Cinco De May Inspo

TUNIC: Johnny Was (linking similar under $100 below!) | DENIM: SP Black (last spring) (similar HERE & HERE) | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban | EARRINGS: H&M (similar here) | WATCH: Fossil | HANDBAG: Prada (similar here) | WEDGES: Dolce Vita | RING: Natalie B, Cartier | LIPS: Beige Tribute + Undressed 

Okay, my top was kind of a splurge. (As I'm typing this I wish I had an emoji keyboard for my blog!) Anyway, I debated back and forth on it bc it is pricy but I knew I'd get wear out of it and I am sure my mom will too. BUT, the good news is I found some similar style tops under $100 (in widget below)... there's one that is SO cute & off the shoulder. 

Also, thanks to those of you who commented with future blog post ideas!! Sounds like the top requested is a Whats in your bag! I'm pretty excited to shoot that for you all!

Also, I found a new foundation that is SOO amazing. I'm giving it couple of days to try out and then I'll do a full review!! <3 Hope you have a fun weekend!

The Perfect Maxi for Special Occasions

DRESS: Show Me Your Mumu c/o | SANDALS: Steve Madden c/o | CLUTCH: Providence Story | SUNGLASSES: Love Always | RING: Kendra Scott, Cartier | BRACELET: Hermes | EARRINGS: Vanessa Mooney | LIPS: 'Pastel Pink'

Zappos used to be my go-to site for shoes (anyone else remember that?!). Now, Zappos has all of the best clothing lines (like Show Me Your Mumu, Mara Hoffman, etc.). I also use Zappos to order John's clothing so it is nice to be able to place an order for myself but also pick up a few things for him to try. Also, returning things is super easy (& free) with Zappos - I think they even allow returns up to 365 days?! 

I was SO excited to find this maxi dress on Zappos! I love maxi dresses but I'm kind of picky about them - fit wise. I love the way this one fits & flows. It's available in white & also in red rose pattern! I am wearing the size small and it fits perfectly. It's a great dress for the beach, a special event, attending a wedding, graduation, or a special date night out! That's one thing I love about maxi dresses - they can styled casually or dressed up for a special event! We have a few weddings coming up the next two months so I'm for sure going to be packing this dress! 

Oh sidenote! My allergies are killing me! I have to take medicine every few hours on the clock. My eyes started watering when we were shooting these sooo I was not looking at the camera much. Anyone else battling those right now!?

BEACH VACAY {Must-Haves}

Since summer is upon is, I wanted to share a few things that have been on my radar for a beach vacay & things I own and always pack for the beach! Sorry this is going up a bit later than usual. If you watch the news, you may have seen that we got bad weather in OK. Luckily, no tornadoes in my area but I was up all night watching out the window. Whoops! Also, not sure how I forgot numbers on this one?!

FLOPPY HAT WITH BOW $24 (I ordered this yesterday!)

TORTOISE SUNGLASSES (A dupe for THESE Karen Walkers that are $280.)

BAG CHARM $28 (You can attach one of these to any of your bags for a fun flair!) *Idea* Grab an inexpensive beach bag from Target and pop this one to have a designer look... remember THIS one from this post?! *oh - this bag is only $34!)

'HOLA' BEACH BAG (Totally snagging this before my next beach trip.) *PS. Also comes in 'Siesta' & 'Ciao'.

STRIPED / TASSEL COVER UP (Worth the money. Size down though.)

PINK TASSEL EARRINGS (Also available in turquoise.)

YSL LIPSTICK (This formula is not super heavy or pigmented but very hydrating & pretty.)

CHARM SANDALS (These are under $100 & are a dupe for the popular Elina Linardaki ones (nearly $200).. I wore them a lot HERE.)

WHITE SWIMSUIT (I packed this style swimsuit for my first beach trip this year (post HERE) & love the criss cross tops for an extra lift.) :):)

Hope you all were safe from the storm if it affected your area. Happy Wednesday! <3

Statement Shoes (On Discount!)

DRESS: sold out :( (similar HERE & HERE) (similar shirt style) | SHOES: Schutz c/o (similar HERE & HERE) | HANDBAG: Prada (similar HERE) | WATCH: Tory Burch c/o (more designer watches here) | EARRINGS: Elizabeth Cole (love these!)

Last winter I saw a pair of booties on Pinterest that I loved so much but they were from a previous season and were no longer being produced and I go SO excited because I found them fully in stock on Saks Off Fifth. Not to mention they were half of the price! Woohoo! Anyway, I was browsing Saks Off Fifth last week and noticed that the prices are so so so good! One of my favorite brands is BCBG and they are carrying lots of last springs items but at a way more affordable price. If you looking for high quality or designer apparel at a discounted price you for sure need to check out this site- many items are up to 70% off!

I could not believe I was able to snag this Schutz 50% off. Sidenote - I am loving these wedges for daily wear - they will go with everything!

Oh and yea my hair is a little wild because we had extreme OK winds on Sunday. It was not cute. :/ The outtakes on these photos were actually really funny.

Trending: Lace-Up Dresses

DRESS: ASTR (wearing size small - XS would have been fine too!) | HEELS: Rebecca Minkoff (on sale - highly recommend!) | HANDBAG: Celine (similar here & here) | EARRINGS: Kenneth Ray Cole | BRACELETS: Hermes,  | SUNGLASSES: Quay via Love Always | RINGS: Natalie B, Cartier | LIPS: 'Virgin Rose' + '369' 

If you saw on IG last night - I wore this dress two times over the weekend.. bc I am so obsessed with this dress! It feels like pajamas but looks trendy and cute on! What's funny is, I was at my friend Savanah's house on Friday and she was returning this dress bc it was too big and I was like "umm no I will take it home and try it on!" It does run a little big but I like the length - it wasn't too short! I had just gotten these shoes in the mail so I wanted to wear them together. (sidetone: these shoes are my faves right now!) They make your legs look SO long! And they are comfy. 

I'm linking some cute lace up dresses below in different colors... there's a couple I have my eyes on! Initially I wasn't crazy about the trend but it's grown on me big time. :) 

Hope you all had a fun weekend!!! We finally got sunshine and spent a plenty of time out in it.. <3

Home Office Tour (Part 1)

I can't believe I'm finally doing a home office post! We've been living in our new home for close to one month now & holy cow! Decorating a full house is quite the task. Honestly, I may not have another home decor post until this time next year! (jk... I hope!)

Anyway, I wanted to give you a quick sneak peek at what my office looks like so far and how I used Lulu & Georgia to decorate. There's more to do in this room but I'll post updates as it goes on.. 

My office doesn't really have a theme or color scheme. My style is more ecclectic so I tend to mix patterns & prints..  I really just wanted it to be a place where I could not only store handbags & some key clothing pieces, but also work on my blog. I spend HOURS in my home office - I'm in there until 2am many nights so I wanted it to be comfortable, functional, yet fun & cute. 

2. White Ceramic & Gold Lamp (on entry way table)

My outfit: CARDIGAN | TANK (similar) | DENIM | HEELS | NECKLACE | RING | LIPSTICK (in Ginn Fizz) | WATCH | BRACELETS: David Yurman (herehere, my fave is here) 

PS. Tory Burch F&F Sale started TODAY! (30% off)  This cross body is one of my favorites - you'll wear it daily! And THIS TOTE is great for the office, baby, or for a gal like me who prefers a large bag! I'll post a couple of up close shots...
