Bachelorette Little Black Dress Under $30

Bachelorette Little Black Dress Under $30

Bachelorette Little Back Dress (under $30!) [Sunglasses, Clutch, Shoes & Earrings are all from consignment stores around Denver (I may do an entire post about where the find the best stuff!)] I am heading to Austin tomorrow for my best friend’s bachelorette party! She truly is the reason I even know Mack. Obviosuly, I can’t wait to celebrate her with my favorite people from college in Texas this holiday weekend. We have FUN plans (aka karaoke and tubing) so keep up with me on Instagram if you want a behind-the-scenes look into our weekend! Before I go however, I wanted to share this adorable, bachelorette party approved, little black dress. It’s under $30, but looks like $100. The quality does not match the price point- the fabric is thick, the ruffle sleeves aren’t flimsy and the mesh detailing doesn’t look cheap (if you know what I am saying). I bought this dress thinking there would be a night that we all wear black, while the bride shines in white. But, there aren’t any dress code requirements for the weekend so we’ll see if this number still makes the cut. Regardless, it’s the perfect pick for your weekend away with the […]

Two New It Cosmetics Products to Try: Superhero Mascara and No. 50 Serum

Two New It Cosmetics Products to Try

It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum | It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara Oh my gosh you guys… it has been a month. May has been an eventful one- in both good and bad ways- but I am back home now and settling back into my routine. All that to say, I am sorry that I disappeared for the past few weeks. Between getting a gum graft, losing my Grandmother and traveling, let’s just say I needed a MINUTE. However, I am trying to get back on track so here goes! While I was home in Colorado, my Mom and I made an Ulta run. One thing that my Mom and I can always relate on, besides Rebel and Tiger, is consignment shopping and new beauty products. I have a deep rooted love for trying new products, testing different makeup options and more. However, my #budgetlife doesn’t allow for too much wiggle room beyond what I know I need when it comes to skincare and cosmetics. But, she spoiled me (#blessed). And now, these two products are going to fall into the necessity category in our budget. I am an avid It Cosmetics user (refer to this post detailing a few other products […]

How to Style a One Piece Swimsuit with Overalls

How to Style a One Piece Swimsuit

One Piece Swimsuit (also featured in this post!) | Overalls | Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) | Wedges Confession time… in my elementary school years I wore one thing and that was overalls. I had two pairs that I’d basically rotate all week. I am sure my teachers wondered if I only owned overalls, which I didn’t, but we like what we like! In fact, one of the first outfits I ever featured on my blog was this pair of skinny overalls (excuse the iPad photos 😂)! Some things never change. Here I am, pushing 28 and still dressing like a 3rd grader. #noshame Anyways, I would describe this pair above as the “boyfriend jeans” of overalls- they’re loose, comfortable and perfect for lounging. In the spring and summer we oftentimes go the beach (I hardly ever get in the water unless I am roasting), then walk around, ride our bikes or head to get lunch. I picked up these overalls because I knew they’d be cute styled over my one piece swimsuit all summer long! I featured this ruffle one piece a few weeks ago and I’ve worn it the beach a few times since. It’s perfect for beach […]

Trends to Try for Summer

Trends to Try for Summer

Clutch (I purchased mine at Hemline Sandestin, similar here and here) Even though I am currently in Denver where the weather seriously just needs to pick a side (snow one day, 70 degrees the next), summer is almost here! I know it’s already summer back home in Florida and I must say that I am missing our consistently hot weather. But I am happy to see my family nonetheless! I featured this wood clutch in last week’s post and had to dedicate a post solely to it because 🙌🏼. I saw this bag here and there last season but it’s back in full-force and if I am being honest… I jumped on the bandwagon. I couldn’t deny that I too wanted to sport this seemingly unrealistic handbag all summer. I am here to tell you however, that it actually conceals the contents better than you’d think. Furthermore, it’s not as unrealistic as it looks! To my surprise, this clutch functions and just happens to be statement-making! Who doesn’t love that? With my new fav clutch, I also wanted to share two additional trends to try this summer. I think you’ll find them easy to incorporate into your summer must-haves, too: Pastels- […]

What to Wear on a Sunday in the Spring

Spring Sunday Style

Polka Dot Dress | Star Espadrilles | Ark Bag (similar, I got mine at Hemline Sandestin) | Sunglasses (similar) A Sunday in the spring on the Emerald Coast is what dreams. are. made. of. A typical Sunday for Mack and me includes church, swinging through a coffee shop, meal prep and getting outside one way or another (usually via cruiser bike!). Sometimes if we’re feeling spontaneous we will head out to 30A for lunch and just soak up that #patiolife. Sundays are my favorite because they’re sweet and slow! Because we are usually going from church to coffee to lunching on a patio, I need a Sunday outfit that is suitable for all occasions. Here are my tips for what to wear on a Sunday in the spring: Find a conservative dress you love (ideally with a little pattern)- Polka dots are timeless. I’ve always loved the simple pattern (even when my strict all-girls high school tried to shut down my polka dot heels that I wore on the first day of my freshman year but that’s besides the point). To me, a small polka dot pattern rarely competes with my accessories so I like that it plays well with others. The […]

Let’s Get Local: Jamie Kamber

Homemade Cronuts Cold Brew Salted Caramel Affogato 5-Layer Ice Cream Cake Do you fan-girl over people on Instagram from time to time (or in my case, all the time)? Well I do just that over Jamie Kamber of JamieKamber.com, a destination for affordable fashion, baking and travel inspiration. Luckily for me, I met her at a local blogger dinner a few months ago and I am here to report that she’s the person you WANT to fan-girl over. She’s extremely genuine and passionate about the content she curates and shares with her over 7,000 Instagram followers turned community of readers! As a fellow local blogger, I wanted to share her blog with each of you because we are both obsessed with the color blush, have an undeniable sweet tooth and can’t get enough of our fur babies!

Warm Weather Refresh at Home

Warm Weather Refresh at Home

The idea of spring cleaning is great. The actual implementation of spring cleaning is another story! Over the past several weeks, I’ve chipped away at little to do’s on my list and it feels so good. More than just general cleaning, I took a deep dive into every nook and cranny of our home to really refresh the space for warm weather. Mack told me it was like I was getting ready to sell the house. NOT the case (actually I don’t think we’ll ever sell this place)! But I like the idea of having our house in its best possible shape, always. Here’s how I refreshed our space: Patio Refresh: I watch enough HGTV to understand curb appeal. Well, ours was seriously lacking! We have an entryway that’s gated (sounds way more glam than it actually is, trust me) and something about it has always been off to me. We had one random bush, pine straw everywhere and quite frankly, I wasn’t sure what kind of critters also called our entryway home. Oh, and we use it to park our cruiser bikes. If you’re getting a visual, it’s probably pretty accurate haha. After three hours to raking, relaying a […]

Wedge Weather

Wedge Weather

Wedges (under $40!) Murphy’s Law always comes into play when you want everything to go just right. Do you all agree? We had our friends in from Virginia Beach this past weekend and although they have a beach, they were ready to indulge in the white sand and sunshine of the Emerald Coast. Well, the weather was not the best but they assured me they still had a great time on their visit. Regardless, wedge weather and beach season are about to be undeniable (and I told them they can come back anytime for a sunny beach weekend haha). Wedges are my favorite mode of transportation in the summer time. I love that they elevate (both literally and figuratively) any warm weather outfit! I picked up this pair (color shown above is taupe) last season and they get A LOT of love. Because I realized I wear this pair so often, I am on the hunt for a few options to rotate in! Here’s what I’ve found so far: I am going to pretend like the following break down is for you all, but really I just need some justification to assist me in my decision on which option/s I need […]

Mustard Lace Overlay Romper

Mustard Lace Overlay Romper

Mustard Lace Overlay Romper | Wallet | Blush Heels | Sunglasses Let me start this post by saying although it looks so pretty and glamorous… not photographed were the numerous groups of college students on spring break hauling their Yeti coolers to the house party just on the other side of this bridge 😂. This situation was just funny because I am so sure they were VERY confused as to why Mack was taking my photos on a random bridge. My very selfless #instagramhusband just waited patiently as they passed and you all know I was so uncomfortable. Anyways, I hope that story made you smile even just a little! So, onto this mustard lace overlay romper. This little number is currently hanging in my closet and it’s like I am looking for any excuse to wear it. I didn’t know it until we shot this dress in a similar shade, but I think mustard is my color. You guys, I really love it. If you have dark brown hair, I suspect it’s your color too. If you’re not a fan of mustard (because I just checked and this shade is sold out- such is life haha), it also comes in […]

Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Peanut Butter Protein Bites

Peanut Butter Protein Bites I’ve been doing this thing recently where I have something at a restaurant that I love and then I scour Pinterest to find a copy-cat recipe! Baked Feta from Zoe’s… Pinterest. Peanut Butter Protein Bites from Freshii… Pinterest. “Be Awesome” smoothie from Formula Fresh… Pinterest. Although I don’t find that these copy-cats taste the exact same, they’re still delicious. For me I think food always tastes better when I don’t make it. Have I told you all I am not the best cook haha? Luckily, these no-bake peanut butter protein bites are super easy featuring only five ingredients. I find myself making these once, sometimes twice a week. I eat them when I get that mid-afternoon hunger strike but Mack eats them for “dessert” after his dinner (he also loves this Cookie Bar). I opt for Blue Bell for dessert but to each her/his own! 😂 Regardless, whether you need a hearty snack (I always eat two) or a sweet treat these are for you. Here’s what you’ll need: Ingredients 2/3 cup Peanut Butter 1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats 1/2 cup Ground Flaxseed 2 Tbsp Honey Shredded Coconut to taste Instructions Combine […]
