dark high waisted shorts







Happy first official days of summer! Currently, I am sitting in my little apartment that feels like 100000 degrees . . . it definitely feels like summer! The only thing that is saving me from the heat right now is the fan that I have pointed in my direction 24/7. I can tell that this fan and I are going to be BFFs this summer.

In other news, I never thought I would say this, but I am officially fallen headover heels in love with a pair of high waisted shorts. I never knew how flattering they could be prior to trying on this grey-washed denim pair! Currently, Free People is selling this classic Levi shorts that I am wearing for under $60. They also come in six different washes. My twin sister is addicted to these shorts as well, and she has three of the six washes (they're THAT good!) 

I hope that you have a lovely and exciting Wednesday!

light blue wrapped romper











My Outfit Details: ROMPER Skort Wrap Romper // EARRINGS White & Blue Beaded Tassel Earrings (c/o) // SANDALS Jeffrey Campbell Wedge Sandals // CLUTCH Pom Pom Clutch (similar linked) 

We have officially been back from our honeymoon for one.whole.week....I am definitely having some Hawaii withdrawals. Since we have been back (and since the hubby has gone back to work) I have had jammed back days of organizing and decorating our cute little apartment. It has been a blast finding spots for our fun wedding gifts! I even think we received enough cooking supplies to open-up a five star restaurant haha!

Now that we are also in the middle of June, the heat has started to really amp up here in Los Angeles. I am thankful for comfy shorts, flowy dresses, and soft and lightweight rompers. This wrapped romper is particularly unique because it looks like a flirty dress from the front, but you can see that it is definitely a romper from the back. Not only does it come in this beautiful light blue option, but four other colors to pick from . . . and I am eyeing the "red" version as well.

I hope you had a lovely start to your week. Talk to you soon :)

instagram lately

I am officially married!! Now with the wedding season behind me {& sadly the honeymoon as well} I have more time to blog! Woot woot! In this instagram recap, I am sharing my outfit details from several of my pre-wedding instagram posts plus a ton of outfits from my honeymoon instas! 




I am OBSESSED with this pom-pom beach cover-up! It is under $20, and it is a great alternative to some of the more expensive pom-pom cover-ups options.

These fringe lace-up sandals are AH-mazing. They are under $23, and they are also available in black.

This strappy bikini was my favorite swimsuit that I brought on my honeymoon.

On our honeymoon, we visited the most stunning white sand beach. There were even sea turtles that were swimming near the tide!

I found the PERFECT work dress (c/o). It is so comfortable,  and it can be dressed up or dressed down to better fit your work environment. Plus, it has pockets!!!

I joked with my husband that this cover-up should have said, "good times & sunburn" instead since I got burned so badly several of the beach days!

Every girl needs to buy at least one Hawaiian dress when they visit the islands, and I was happy to find this one! It went so well with the gold accessories! Also, I want this necklace in every available color!

My Outfit Details: SHIRT Thermal Tee // SKIRT Black Skirt (old, similar linked) // PURSE Black Tote // SHOES Black OTK Boots // NECKLACE Crystal Bib Necklace (sold out, similar linked) //  WATCH Michele Watch // BRACELET Alex & Ani 'Heart' Bracelet (on sale!) & Alex & Ani 'Heart' Bracelet // 

We are about a month away from my wedding, my last bridal shower is on Sunday, and I finish my teaching credential in three weeks . . . life is pretty crazy right now but I am soaking in every minute of it! I am so excited that I am finally able to get this post up today. I took these photos a couple months ago, but I am just getting them up now -- lol! Better late than never, right?! 

I have this thermal tee in two clothes, and I wear it ALL.THE.TIME. It is beyond comfortable {like pajama status!} and lightweight! I love styling it with a bralette or layering it over a white tank.  Also, I just found one of my favorite Alex & Ani bracelets on sale for under $15 at a well-known retailer!!! 

P.S. My fiance and I just bought a couch for our new apartment . . . real life adulting over here! :)

stripe top & suede skirt








My Outfit Details: SHIRT Navy & White Long Sleeve (similar linked) // SKIRT Suede Skirt // PURSE Tory Burch Crossbody Purse // BRACELETS Alex & Ani 'Apple' Bracelet  & Alex & Ani 'Heart' Bracelet  // SHOES Suede Lace-Up Flats (similar linked) 

I am knee deep into my spring break, and I am enjoying every minute of it. I've been catching up on laundry, cleaning, organizing, lesson planning, job applications, wedding planning, and blogging. As you can see, this break is anything but unproductive! :) But I am still getting plenty of rest . . . so that I can gear up for the home stretch of my credential program and wedding planning. Woot woot! 

Speaking of spring, this is the best skirt to wear during this transition season. This skirt is from my sister's amazing boutique line. I love purchasing some of the items from her, since I know that the pieces are high-quality and at a reasonable price. Currently, it is under $50! I've also been obsessed with my suede lace-up flats lately. I got mine at Target several months back, but I found an identical pair online for you! 

I hope that you have a lovely Wednesday!

embroidered spring dress









My Outfit Details: DRESS Spring Embroidered Dress (c/o) // EARRINGS Kendra Scott Earrings // SHOES Steve Madden OTK Boots // SUNGLASSES Pink RayBan Sunnies // PURSE Black Reversible Free People Tote

This beautiful floral embroidered dress is only fitting now that we are officially into the spring season. It can be dressed up with a pair of OTK boots, and it can just as easily be dressed down with a jean jacket as well. And with a $30 price tag, this stunning dress won't break the bank either. That's a win-win in my book!I am going to link-up a bunch of other floral embroidered dresses that I have had my eyes on down below :) 

I hope that you have a lovely Monday :) This Monday is extra exciting since Bradford and I are only two exciting months away from our big day. Also, we will be signing the lease to our new apartment today as well!

perfect springtime top












 My Outfit Details: SHIRT Free People Long Sleeve (on sale, under $50!) // JEANS AG Skinnys // NECKLACE Kendra Scott 'Harper' Choker Necklace // WATCH Movado // EARRINGS Pearl Studs (similar linked) // SHOES OTK Steve Madden Boots // PURSE Kate Spade Crossbody Bag

Today, I am beyond excited to let you guys in on a little secret . . . my all-time favorite long sleeve top is on sale for under $50. Even though this top is labeled as a 'thermal,' it is anything but that! It is a top that kept you warm in the winter, but comfortable during those awkward spring days where it is warm/cold out {Does anybody else have a difficult time dressing for those warm/cold spring days!?)

Also, this is the perfect time to start stocking up on all of the winter boots that are on sale--and saving them for next fall! Right now, my OTK boots are on sale. 

Have a lovely Wednesday :)
