Happy Monday loves! I hope you had a great weekend. We traveled to Houston on Saturday for Bryson’s nieces 2nd birthday party and it was so much fun and good to see his family. Sunday we spent relaxing and getting ready for the week.
I wanted to do a quick Instagram round up because I haven’t done one in a while and I’ve had a few questions about different items I’ve shared that have not been included in a blog post yet. I am obsessed with just about everything above but most importantly this new pj set from Madewell and these new Miu Miu ballet flats. I wore them for the first time today actually and I am even more obsessed than when I opened them.
Happy Sunday loves – I hope you all had a great weekend! Today is my 24th birthday and in honor of turning 24 I thought I would do a special blog post and share 24 things I am thankful for and or that make me happy. I am so guilty of getting caught up in the moment and forgetting to stop and think about all of the blessings in my life. I’m sure I could list 2,400 things but I will keep it short and sweet instead. Here we go;
My family – they are my everything
My boyfriend Bryson – my rock
My pets – 2 golden retrievers Ralf and Riley, kitten Keek and yorkie Bella
My house/having a roof over my head
Blogging and having a space to be creative
Crab legs and or pizza for dinner
Being able to travel
FurryFreshness and Melvina
Warm clothes fresh out of the dryer
Online shopping – cliche but true
Being able to help people + give back
Starbursts – only the pink, yellow or red
Yerba Mates or coffee in the AM
Days spent at home
A smile on the face of someone I love
Laughing and those who can make me laugh
A warm shower
Being able to turn 24
Thank you to everyone who has sent happy birthday messages, they mean the world to me! Now I am off to hang out with #2 + #5 and eat one of the options from #11 – feeling so blessed for another year!
If your birthday is this weekend like mine, you might be extra excited for the weekend to come. We did have a trip planned to go to LA & San Diego and we were supposed to leave on Saturday but we had to cancel due to business craziness. To make up for cancelling the trip I booked myself a hair appointment and am planning to go pretty light on Saturday. Eeek I am so excited and have been working towards a blonde-ish for over a year now. I know most people say go dark for fall but I like to swim up current so stay tuned for the new hair debut.
Most of this look is from Forever 21 and I threw the skirt and tank combo together in store. I loved the colors together and the mix of the satin and lace, so girly! This bomber and these heels are my go-to right now. The bomber is super lightweight which is perfect for this Texas heat and you already know from my last posts how much I love these shoes (under $30). All of these pieces are great together or separate wardrobe staples.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a good week loves.
Is anyone else a sucker for neutrals? I would say about 90% of my closet consists of neutrals. I wear a lot of black and grey and most recently have been adding more white, nude and blush tones. There is something so chic about neutral tones especially an outfit that consists of only neutrals from head to toe.
I found this lace cami at Forever 21 for less than $10 and I couldn’t pass on it. I just recently saw online that it comes in black and mauve pink and I might need them both. A big style for fall is the “stay in your pjs all day look” which consists of anything from pj set looks to lace and baby doll styles. I would say I’m not brave enough to try the pj set style but I can get all over the baby doll lace and slip dress styles.
I have been living in these Forever 21 heels that I mentioned in my last post paired with these white jeans. I love this look right now as we live the last month of summer (gasp) although I am a strong believer in winter whites. These jeans are actually stretch jeggings and I have them in black as well. Talk about comfy – who wears jeans anymore without stretch ew!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week + weekend ahead!
Happy August loves! Can you believe it is already the 8th month of 2016? I cannot.
If you could pick one decade of time to live in aside from the one you were born in which would you chose? I would pick the 70’s for sure! I am such a sucker for floral, flares, free spirits and anything boho. I recently went shopping on Forever 21’s website and this 70’s inspired romper was the first thing I added to my cart. I absolutely love the floral print, the bell sleeves and the ruffle shorts and for $22.90 how could I say no? I will mention that I purchased this one in a size small but had to return that for a large for more length (I’m 5’10”) so if you are considering purchasing and you are a little taller I would size up for length.
These shoes were the second thing I added to my cart and for under $30 they are the perfect nude heel. I have a lot of black shoes so I am trying to add more neutrals and browns into the mix. These shoes will definitely be on repeat for a while. These Quay sunglasses are from Melvina and I love the circle sunglasses style that is in right now. I think they’re fun and they add to my 70’s obsession.
I hope you guys have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by!
