Summer Date Night with Popfizz Boutique

Summer Date Night with Popfizz Boutique

Lace Dress (c/o Popfizz Boutique + Popfizz Oxford) | Denim Jacket (similar) | Clutch (similar) | Wedges | Sunglasses (similar) Once a week, Mack and I plan to have a date night! This usually falls a weekend night, deepening on my work schedule and if Mack’s in town or not. Date nights are the BEST NIGHTS! We love to get a little fancy and head to one of our favorite spots. With summer just around the corner, I want to explore new ways to date night! In the short time that we’ve lived in the Florida panhandle, I’ve learned there’s always something new to do. So this summer here’s how we plan to switch up date night: Live Music: Okay, this is quickly becoming my favorite part about where we live… there’s always live music and it’s usually free to attend! It doesn’t matter if you’re at restaurant, in your favorite local shoppette or simple enjoying a cocktail, live music isn’t far. I recently heard an amazing band here locally and I am about to stalk their website to see where I can see them play again. Alas, summer date nights and live music are about to become our new normal!

Two Products for Low Maintenance Hair

Two Products for Low Maintenance Hair

Batiste Dry Shampoo | L’oreal Next Day Hair Perhaps instead of “low maintenance” I should simply say the lazy girls guide to hair! Despite my best efforts to have voluminous, teased, perfectly curled hair, it just doesn’t work with the current climate in which we live. In Mississippi, I could curl my hair and it would stay for HOURS… I am talking hours! Best thing ever. This was quite opposite from living in Denver where I couldn’t get my hair to hold anything. Fast forward to moving to Florida’s panhandle and the moisture coming off the gulf water makes my hair fall flatter than flat. Except of course it rains in which my hair just frizzes up! So to combat all of this, I’ve developed a routine that works for me and in most cases, my hair looks better on the second day which is always good news! The two products I use weekly to keep my hair in check are L’oreal Next Day Hair and Batiste Dry Shampoo! For the longest time, I washed my hair every single day. This became exhausting and I read that it’s actually not that great for your hair. So, I now wash every other […]

Four Must-Have Shoes for Spring

Four Must-Have Shoes for Spring

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I’ve been prepping for spring and summer in the best way possible: getting my shoe game in check for warm weather! As I looked at my teeny tiny closet the other day and saw boxes of shoes stacked up, I thought to myself that I should share my recent shoe purchases with you! Here’s what I’ve added to the bottom tier of my closet in anticipation for hot days; wedges, strappy block heels, fun printed heels and of course, flats! WEDGES Wedges and warm weather go together like wine and cheese- perfectly! I opt for wedges on date night, when I know I’ll be walking a lot or when I am going for a casual (but not too casual look), you know what I mean? Wedges offer the stable support and for me, are the most comfortable option for warm nights! I finally snagged a pair of these designer dupe wedges and I am obsessed. They were under $60 and come in a variety of different colors. I linked a few additional styles I love below! STRAPPY HEELS Strappy heels are a great option for that fun girls night out, a summer […]

Ruffle Chambray Off the Shoulder Dress

Ruffle Chambray Off the Shoulder Dress

Dress (similar) | Shoes (similar) | Purse | Sunglasses (similar) From day to night, this ruffle chambray off the shoulder dress is perfection! It’s comfortable (chambray is one of my favorite materials to sport, like this romper here!) and features flirty details like the bell sleeves and frayed bottom. As the weather continues to warm up, I am looking forward to days spent outside all day (this week was in the 80’s). Mack and I live very close to a lot of adorable neighborhoods and restaurants. Therefore, one of our fav things to do is ride our cruiser bikes to dinner on the weekends! However, along the way we weave through our favorite neighborhoods! We constantly scope out homes, like this pink one shown above (don’t you LOVE it), and take in all the Florida scenery. There really is no beating the candy-colored homes that line nearly every street around here. I can’t believe we live where people vacation! Truly, Mack and I talk it all the time and just how lucky we feel. We try to soak it up every single minute! Anyways, I know this chambray dress fits the bill for a day of being outdoors- from bike rides to happy hours- […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Tea Pot | Keurig | Nothing To Prove | Recipe Box | Card Holder | Cardigan | Mug | Initial Necklace | Wedges | Perfume | Acrylic Organizer With Mother’s Day less than a month away I thought it would be a good idea to share some gift inspiration! What better way to spoil Mom than with kitchen essentials, some cute accessories or organizational items to make her life easier. There’s nothing we can do to repay them, but spoiling them a little bit never hurts. In honor of Mother’s Day I thought I’d share some lessons my mom instilled in me. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve truly seen the importance in these pivotal lessons and honestly wish I would’ve listened sooner (haha isn’t that always the way it happens)! I am so thankful for her, even though I am very bad at showing it at times, and the example she has always been in my life. So with that, here are some key lessons I’ve learned from her: Always, always be nice: My mom is the picture of patience, kindness and forgiveness. Everyone who knows her will tell you that she’s the sweetest lady they’ve ever met. I literally don’t know […]

Mixed Prints for Spring

Mixed Prints for Spring

Floral Dress & Leopard Heels: Blush Destin | Sunglasses (similar) | Purse (similar) | Watch (similar) When it’s finally okay to wear white shoes again of course I opt for leopard print haha! I saw this look on the Blush Destin Instagram last week and immediately asked Morgan to hold this dress for me as I knew it would be a spring staple. I love the bold print and the bright colors balanced by the muted grey tone. This dress is so pretty to me! When I swung by to pick it up, there was one pair of these little leopard heels left in my size and well, I couldn’t resist. Originally when she posted this dress she paired it with these heels so I decided I’d try it. Although I love an outfit featuring mixed prints, I’ve never been able to find the correct pieces to pair together that work. Since this outfit was Morgan-approved, I knew it would be so dang cute. Due to that, I asked her to contribute some tips for mixing prints for all the girls out there that WANT to mix prints but aren’t quite sure where to start. Here’s the advice she offered: I absolutely love […]

Rust Off the Shoulder Dress with K Avenue

Rust Off the Shoulder Dress with K Avenue

Off the Shoulder Dress (c/o K Avenue) | Sunglasses (similar) | Handbag | Shoes If you’ve followed along here for awhile then you know I am a budget-conscious kinda girl! Yes, it’s so challenging at times to put the shoes back on the shelf, walk out of HomeGoods with the only candle you intended to buy and follow your grocery list strictly to ensure you don’t overspend. But all that to say, it’s worth it! So worth it when you build some savings, can splurge on something fun (like a home update or a trip!), or simply for the peace of mind that if you needed some money (I am looking at you car problems), you have some cash stashed away. But the question remains, how does one stay budget savvy while maintaining a sense of style? Well let me tell what’s worked for me; research, invest in classic pieces, and plan for items you want as the seasons turn over. Here’s my formula for keeping my closet costs low: Research: Luckily for all of us, there are tons of small business boutiques that cater to girls looking for the best and cutest outfits without a bankroll to spend. We simply have to find them, rake […]

Spring Refresh at Home

Spring Refresh at Home

Blush Curtains | Boxwood Wreath | Welcome Mat | Pom Pom Pillow | Picture Frame | Blush Ikat Pillow | Pom Pom Basket Much like a closet that needs a quick refresh as the seasons change, our homes could use a mini update as well to welcome warmer temps! As the days grow longer, I find myself tucking away those faux fur blankets for lighter options, adding some subtle color to the nooks of our home and always update the front porch to offer a fresh hello! A few quick and easy additions to your home for spring time can really breath new life into any space! First, I plan to take action asap and update the wreath on our front door with this seasonal boxwood. We’ve had a monogrammed “G” hanging on our door for over two years so I want to try something new. Also, I am going to get a new welcome mat as our current one is very worn out (so much so that you can’t read what it says anymore). I am confident that these two simple updates will spruce our curb appeal! Next, I plan to bring some lighter elements into our guest bedroom! We […]

What’s in My Purse

What's in my Purse

I always joke that when I am going to work, on a trip or even to the grocery store that I am moving in! For whatever reason I am not the girl who just carries everything in that tiny card holder on the back of an iPhone. I can’t do it- I need to have my giant tote bag, which houses my smaller purse and everything else I reach for on a daily basis. Seriously, when I leave for work each morning it’s almost laughable how many items I bring with me. But, your girl is prepared for anything and EVERYTHING! Hungry? Here’s a snack! Have headache? Here’s an Advil. Need to wash your hands on the go? Here’s some hand sanitizer. Being unprepared is a feeling I dislike very much. Therefore, I organize my tote bag as a mini survival kit! Because I’ve just learned over the years, you’d rather be safe than sorry (mostly pertaining to snacks haha). Here’s what I make sure my bag is stocked with on a day to day basis: My Purse– That’s right, I carry a bag inside a bag haha. I like to keep it this way as my wallet, lipstick case […]

StyleWe Black Crochet Dress

StyleWe Black Crochet Dress

Black Crochet Dress (c/o StyleWe) | Leopard Clutch (similar) | Earrings (similar) | Wedges (similar) | Sunglasses (similar) While online shopping do you ever get instant heart eyes for a specific item? That’s what happened to me with this dress! It’s everything I love in a dress- the color black, floral design and crochet detailing. Funny story, as Mack was completing pilot training he had an award ceremony, for which, I wore a navy blue crochet dress. I will NEVER forget that dress as it was such a happy day. Now, whenever I see a crochet dress of any kind I immediately convince myself I need it for whatever special occasion may arise that I can wear it to. I associate all happy moments in life with the clothing item I was wearing that day… is this normal? Haha probably not but it’s how my mind (and memory) work! This dress in particular is perfect for one of those evening summer weddings where the dress code isn’t exactly specified. You know that type? The invitation says the ceremony is at 4 p.m. on a Saturday with an outdoor reception in the middle of summer but fails to mention appropriate dress. I’ve noticed that even […]
