Beach Strollin'










COVER UP: Nanette Lepore (LOOVE this one!) | SWIMSUIT: Mara Hoffman (I also packed THIS similar one!) | SANDALS: Tory Burch | BRACELETS: David Yurman (here & here) | RING: Kendra Scott | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban  | EARRINGS: Tory Burch | LIPS: 'Candy Yum Yum' | HAT: Amici

I posted these sandals on Instagram yesterday because I am so obsessed with them! They literally go with everything that I packed which is awesome! I think they are definitely worth the splurge for this spring / summer if you are looking for a great quality pair of sandals that you can wear a lot. Speaking of that, I only packed 3 pair of shoes - John let me know that he is positive it was the lightest my luggage has ever been! 

I'm linking some of my favorite minimalist sandals from Nordstrom in the widget below - they have a TON of super cute ones! And as far as sizing goes with this cover up -- it runs big. In fact, I accidentally ordered a medium two times - I definitely needed a small in this. I actually clipped it back for these pictures because it wasn't too flattering without the clip.. oops! :) 

Hope you all are having a great week! Thank you so much for reading..xo!!

Beachy Days..







DRESS: Topshop | HEELS: Valentino | HAT: Amici (only $22!) | RING: Kenda Scott | BAG: Valentino (love this similar style) | NECKLACE: BaubleBar | BRACELETS: David Yurman (here & here) | LIPS: "Michiyo" | EARRINGS: Tory Burch

I arrived in Montego Bay, Jamaica yesterday & oh my goodness, it is soooo beautiful & warm here! John and I honeymooned in Jamaica 2.5 years ago & I was excited to be coming back. The people are so fun & friendly. Tulsa (& Arkansas) are in the path of a snow storm today so it couldn't be a better time to escape the weather! 

I've been buying so many sandals lately from Nordstrom & these Valentinos happen to be one of my favorite pairs I have ever owned. The photos don't do them justice, they are so beautiful. Nordstrom has tons of cute springy sandals right now - I will be linking some of my favorites below!

Similar trench coats HERE & HERE | DENIM: Loft (craving these) | HEELS: Christian Louboutin (almost identical and under $100 here) | SCARF: old (similar style) | BAG: Louis Vuitton (similar style) | SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker (LOVE these for under $40) | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELET: David Yurman | EARRINGS: Tory Burch (I have been wearing these 24/7) | LIPS: Heatwave | RING: David Yurman

I am notorious for being late for everything, something I am not proud of... but I've got certain outfits that I go to when I am running late that are fail-proof.. and this outfit is one of them. I love trends & wearing bright, bold colors, but there's something about having true classic pieces in your closet that will never fail you. Yesterday we were getting ready for church & I realized I was behind so I went for this outfit (hence the wrinkles!). As I mentioned in this post, I get the most wear out of this scarf when the weather is transitioning from winter - spring. Another classic piece that gets plenty of wear this time of year is my trench coat. To be honest, I counted before I posted this & I have 4 trench coats.. oops. But really, if you are looking for a lightweight jacket for the cooler mornings & nights, a trench is the best! 

Sidenote(s): I do not get lash extensions, I actually use THIS to grow them out.. & I am not wearing extensions in this post.

Simple & Striped..









TURTLENECK: Nasty Gal | SKIRT: Kingdom & State c/o | HEELS: Steve Madden | CLUTCH: Clare Viver | WATCH: Michele | BRACELET: David Yurman | RING: BaubleBar  | LIPS: Happy Go Lucky | EARRINGS: old (similar style) | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban

I am counting down the days until my skirt for Kingdom & State is available, but until then I am wearing this faux leather midi from K&S! Oh, and I may or may not have picked up THIS swimsuit, too! Next week I am heading out of the country for a few days so I've been scouting out new swimsuits.. I also grabbed THIS one! 

Just in case any of you noticed, I got a little off schedule with my posts this week. :/ Sorry about that! Fitz turned me into a paranoid parent for a couple of nights. His bark has been sounding different - almost hoarse?! We have noticed it for about a week. Like, when the UPS man rings the door bell Fitz always goes running to the door barking (ferociously!), but recently his bark sounds weaker than usual. His personality is the same - still as fun and playful as ever. But one night he was making a weird coughing noise and I of course freaked out. John said he thinks Fitz is fine.. but I am the crazy one who started thinking about Fitz being sick! This is embarrassing but for two nights in a row I was waking up every once in the while to put my hand on Fitz (he sleeps on my feet or John's head, lol!) to make sure he was breathing. I honestly could not sleep because I would feel him get still and I would get worried. Anyway, sorry for the novel - but I am taking him to the vet to get peace of mind. 

**For those asking about my bed - it is HERE and the headboard only option is HERE.

Fuzzy..








CARDIGAN: bar IIIc/o | TURTLENECK: Nordstrom | LEGGINGS: bar III c/o | FLATS: Yosi Samra | BAG: Prada (similar, more affordable style) | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Brandy Pham c/o | SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban | EARRINGS: Kendra Scott  | LIPS: #26 'Rose Libertin"

There are so many things I can say about the weather, but that's getting boring. Yes, there's snow on the ground, yes I am sitting outside enjoying the weather. Just how it goes in the south, keeps things exciting?! ha!

Between being snowed inside or working outside, this fuzzy cardigan by bar III has been getting plenty of wear. (You may have noticed it in this Instagram pic.) It's so soft / cozy / long - kind of the perfect combination for this time of year.

I'm not sure if any of you have noticed the #settingthebar hashtag, but it is a campaign that bar III recently launched dedicated to highlighting Millennials who are 'setting the bar' by pursuing their ventures & defining success. Throughout this year bar III will be highlighting these Millennials through social media/videos entitled "#settingthebar".  I'm a big fan of this campaign because I know it will make a positive impact on our generation. 

Thanks to bar III for sponsoring this post. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
