Spring Sweater

Spring Sweater

Pom Pom Sweater | White Jeans (similar) | Crossbody Bag (similar) | Starburst Ring | Hammered Gold Ring | Sunglasses | Wedges (similar) | Sunglasses I am the #1 advocate for versatile pieces in your closet. This sweater is not that. BUT we all need a little spice in our lives. This coming from the girl that sat fifth row at the Spice Girls concert, bought the t-shirt and yes, even a ring that I refused to take off. So for all of us that lived and breathed everything Spice Girls, think of this sweater as the spice in your life just in time for spring. You may be thinking, “a sweater for spring?” I say yes! The transition to spring isn’t always a defined route. Temperature jumps and chilly nights call for that extra knit. Although, I am convinced that Puxatony Phil was incorrect this time as spring has made an early arrival in the Florida panhandle (not complaining, just an observation). I love pairing spring sweaters with white jeans for now then jean shorts later. Plus, this pom pom version just triggers that spring spirit in all of us as winter subsides and warm temperatures return. I secretly […]

Athleisure with Planted True

Athleisure with Planted True

Baseball Hat | Black Zip Up (similar) | White T-shirt (similar) | Planted True Joggers | Tennis Shoes (similar) | Coffee Mug Happy Wednesday! Holiday weekends always throw me off (especially when the weather is perfect). Give me all the bike rides and beach walks for three days straight and I am one happy camper. But I am also behind haha. I think we can all relate to playing catch up after a week out of town and a holiday weekend! But I am back on track over here and in case you missed it, I highlighted Karen Hatcher of Planted True on Friday in this post. Her family business is very inspiring and I always get so excited to share the stories of fellow business owners in my community. If you haven’t already, be sure to read the post! Anyways, these adorable joggers are from the Planted True lifestyle brand and they’re so comfortable. I rock athleisure outfits more than I am willing to admit. If it’s the weekend, I am in an outfit like this until it’s time to change for date night. I just have a hard time getting dressed up during a normal day where we […]

Let’s Get Local: Planted True

Let's Get Local: Planted True

“She stands tall.” When a twenty-something hears those words, they resonate. I have to believe that when any woman hears those words, regardless of age, they still resonate. These words along with a specific set of core values are what sparked Planted True (launching at 9am CST for my early readers!), a boutique and lifestyle brand curated by Karen Hatcher in Panama City, FL. A family business that made the transition from brick and mortar to solely online remains focused on their mission of creating a comfortable space for women to shop and find clothes that promote confidence. When I first came across the Planted True Instagram, it was the visually pleasing feed that caught my eye. But after months of following their content, I realized they were so much more than a boutique offering a mix of highly sought after brands in conjunction with their own lifestyle brand, rather I discovered Planted True is a movement through a team focused on uplifting one another and their community. This is so evident in their deep family roots upon which this brand is built. I had the opportunity to sit down with Karen to discuss the future of Planted True and learn […]

Pom Pom Vest + Photography Tips

Faux Fur Pom Pom Vest

Pom Pom Vest | Black Dress | Blush Bucket Bag | Sunglasses (similar) | Leopard Booties Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone has a day filled with love. I am in Las Vegas with my Mom but going home to my Valentine tomorrow morning and can’t wait. Speaking of Mack, I receive so many questions about who takes my blog photos. The secret’s out- it’s my sweet and selfless hubby! Let me preface this post by saying I started this entire blog by taking photos on an iPad- yes, you read that right. First with my Dad and then with Mack when we moved. Let’s just say we’ve come a LONG way since then. But as two self-taught, amateur photographers- I have to say I am pretty proud of us! With that in mind, I wanted to share our tips to capturing blog-worthy imagery: Scout Locations- In most cases, the location makes the photos. We try to keep it fairly consistent but we switch from a number of local spots ranging from neighborhoods to community hubs and hotel exteriors. However, we always shoot outdoors. Natural light is the best light! We are blessed to live in a tourist centralized location […]

Sweet + Healthy Valentine’s Day Treat

Sweet + Healthy Valentine's Day Treat 1

With Valentine’s Day just two days away, time is of the essence in the gift department. Luckily for you, not all gifts have to be purchased. Rather, sometimes the “sweetest” gifts are those that are baked. If any of you watch This Is Us, which I suspect you do- run to the closest grocery store like Rebecca did for Jack on his birthday and get to baking. This easy recipe is not only delicious, it’s paleo. Here’s how to make this delicious chocolate cookie bar: Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups almond flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp vanilla extract 2 large eggs 1 tbsp almond milk 1/4 cup coconut oil 1/3 cup honey 1/3 cup almond butter 1/3 cup chopped almonds 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips Instructions: 1.

Black Wrap Dress with Planted True

Black Wrap Dress

Black Wrap Dress (Planted True, more details soon!) | Kitty Straw Clutch (sold out) | Leopard Boots (under $30!) The constant search for the perfect LBD is one that never ceases for me. I ALWAYS find a reason to add another black dress to my closet mostly because they transcend season, event and time really. I recently snagged this little black wrap dress from Planted True, a local store, that I can’t seem to get enough of. I have some exciting new content coming soon in partnership with them so stay tuned! In the meantime, feel free to stalk their Instagram and fall in love. With spring literally just around the corner (but not quite here yet), I plan to mix my favorite winter accessories with spring focused items such as this adorable kitty straw clutch, until the weather truly transitions. I shared a few weeks ago about this blanket scarf and how I plan to carry it with me as we welcome spring. Take an inventory of your closet and evaluate if any key items can be used in multiple ways. Don’t judge me, but you’ll probably see me wearing these booties with jean shorts and my favorite tee […]

Spring Musings

Spring Musings

With six more weeks of winter promised, the time to start day dreaming about warm weather is NOW. Yesterday I felt a hint of spring in the air, but rain and storms are projected for the week. To soak it in, I walked Rebel and Tiger further than usual and they were very happy boys! With spring on the mind, I wanted to round up some items I’ve been musing over (whether on trend or not, because really just wear what you want!). Here’s what I’ve added to my cart for the spring season: Spring to me means a mixture patterns (like this polka dot wrap dress and this pinstripe shirt) balanced by denim shorts (I prefer Levi’s 501’s but may try this pair and this pair too). Also, I want to incorporate more lavender into my closet this season accomplished by this swoon-worthy dress and this athleisure bag ideal for beach days! Speaking of beach days, I really want to try a one piece this season- I like this one with ruffles (and I love the price point in case I only wear the style for one season). Finally, I plan to step into spring with these shoes on rotation- […]

Pretty in Pearls Dress

Pretty in Pearls Dress

Pretty in Pearls Dress (sold out, similar here and here) | Denim Jacket (almost identical) | Heels (similar) | Blush Bucket Bag | Sunglasses (similar) Happy first day of February! I kicked off the {almost} new month last night by watching one of the greatest love stories of all time.. Sweet Home Alabama. I’ve always loved Reese but nothing pulls my heart strings more than when she goes to the pet cemetery to say bye to Bear- if you know what I am talking about then you KNOW. Anyways, February is a month filled with chocolate after a January focused on a cleanse (generally speaking, I didn’t do one haha). Regardless, bring on the flowers and chocolate. This pretty in pearls dress is another great option for your Valentine’s Day date night. I shared this causal date night look last week if you’re interested in a more dressed-down option. But considering the name of my blog is about my obsession with details, the sleeves on this dress are everything. Sadly, it’s sold out- I am so sorry! But I linked two very similar options above (although, they’re missing the pearls that I love so much). This dress, seemingly simple and […]

Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her

Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Her

Valentine’s Day Gift Bag | Loafer Mule Slippers | Champagne Gummy Bears Let me preface this post by saying that Mack and I don’t really do Valentine’s Day. We will definitely go out to dinner but we don’t exchange gifts (refer to my budgeting post haha)! Valentine’s Day gifts for one another don’t usually make the cut but a fun dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant definitely does. But that doesn’t mean I can’t window shop for you all. If you’re a husband or boyfriend reading this (girl, forward it to him to end the guessing game), here are three tips to shop for your bae: Comfort Over Everything: Fantasy life may suggest that lingerie is the way to go but I am here to tell you that comfort trumps all. Seriously. Opt for this adorable sweatshirt and these slippers and she’ll be the happiest girl in the world. Champagne Anything: A bottle of champagne, champagne flavored gummy bears and even this champagne dog toy for her puppy (if she has one!) are appropriate options for Valentine’s Day. Plus if you consider her puppy, major brownie points! Pink Accessories: I am never one to suggest expensive gifts that can’t be put to use […]

Casual Date Night Look for Valentine's Day

Heart Sweater (sold out, similar) | Step Hem Jeans (similar) | Blush Bucket Bag | Block Heels | Sunglasses (similar) I teed off Valentine’s Day earlier this week with my Galentine gift guide for your girlfriends! Today, I wanted to continue in the spirit of Cupid and offer a sweet and casual date night look. If you and your hubby or boyfriend are anything like Mack and me then your favorite date nights include margaritas and a whole lot of queso. This look is perfect for a regular date night that just happens to fall on Valentine’s Day. Pair a festive yet comfortable sweater (I love the heart patches!) like this one from Blush Destin with your favorite skinny jeans, block heels and a blush bag to top it off. If you plan to stay home, simply swap the block heels for these chic slippers instead and enjoy a night in. Stay tuned for my Valentine’s gift guide for her next week. In the meantime, I hope you have a great weekend! Thank you for stopping by today!
