bridal shower & rehearsal dinner dress

June 30, 2017



















My Outfit Details: DRESS Ruffle Halter Midi Dress // DRESS Beaded Choker Necklace (c/o) // BRACELET Kendra Scott 'Jana' Bracelet // EARRINGS Studded Earrings // PURSE Kate Spade Quilted Crossbody Purse // SHOES Brown Sandals (similar linked) 


On this lovely Friday, I am sharing a billowy white dress that would be PERFECT for an upcoming bridal shower or rehearsal dinner! I thought that it was so perfect, that I wore it for my own rehearsal dinner in the beginning of the month! Woot woot! It is on sale for under $39, which is a steal for this dreamy dress. If you aren't a bride this summer, you can also snag this dress in several other stunning colorful shades. I'm thinking about picking up the navy color for a wedding I will be attending in September.

Thankfully, the weather has cooled off these past few days and it has been a lovely eighty degrees. I've still been pretty busy organizing my cozy little home, and I am thankful for the break from the heat! I'm excited to have the hubby join me in the apartment organizing this weekend. It is also Bradford's birthday on the 4th, and I am excited to celebrate him soon :)

I hope that you have a lovely weekend as you prep for the 4th of July! :)

how to wear jeans in the summer

June 28, 2017








My Outfit Details: SHIRT Floral Printed Tunic (on sale & super lightweight!) // JEANS Dark Wash Denim (similar linked) // SHOES Valentino Rockstud Heels // PURSE Valentino Rockstud Crossbody Purse // BRACELET Kate Spade Hinge Bracelet (similar linked) // NECKLACE Gold Layered Necklace (similar linked) 


Alert! Alert! I found my new favorite lightweight tunic on sale for 60% off. This tunic is exactly how I can get away with wearing jeans this summer. For some odd reason, when I moved into my apartment with the hubby about a month ago, I lost about 50% of my denim shorts. It's as if they completely vanished! As a result, I have been stuck rotating through two pairs of denim shorts and my expansive jeans collection. But, when it is 100+ degrees out {and you don't have a washer and dryer in your apartment complex} you learn pretty quickly how to wear jeans in the hot weather so that you don't immediately suffer from heat stroke. My ultimate trick is to find lightweight and airy tops that provide some breathability. 

In other news, I received my wedding pictures yesterday . . . and I am super excited! It took me two hours today to look through all 1,152 photos that we were given. Phew, it took forever! I will definitely be sharing them with you guys sometime soon :) Stay tuned! 

Have the loveliest Wednesday! :) Talk to you soon!

off-the-shoulder top & espadrilles

June 26, 2017











My Outfit Details: SHIRT Blue & White Off-the-Shoulder Top (c/o) // SHORTS Grey Chino Shorts (on sale, under $30!) // EARRINGS Beaded Tassel Earrings (c/o) // WATCH Michele Watch  // BRACELETS Alex & Ani 'Anchor' Bracelet  & Alex & Ani 'Initial' Bracelet // PURSE Kate Spade 'Emerson' Crossbody Purse // SHOES Navy Espadrilles (similar linked) 

Warning, this may sound dramatic but . . . stop what you are doing, and get these chino shorts in every available color. They are currently on sale for under $30, and they are so so so comfortable. I have never been a fan of super short shorts but I don't want to pull out a pair of bermuda shorts either. Well, after some heavy duty searching, I ended up finding these shorts that are the most perfect length! They are avaliable in eight colors and they run true-to-size. I'm super bummed that I missed out on getting the "raspberry" color in my size :( 

In other news, I hope that you had a lovely weekend. The hubby and I had a very relaxing {I might have accidentally taken a three hour nap on Saturday, opps!} and errand filled Saturday and Sunday. We watched one complete season of Parks & Recreations, did a ton of laundry, attended what might be our new home church, and we finally bought a closet organizer so that I have a place to put my socks and underwear . . .  If I have learned anything about married life these past 3+ weeks, it is that honestly the simplest of things can sometimes be the best -- like finally getting a box full of socks out of the hallway and into a properly ordered closet organizer. Woot woot! 

I hope that you have a blessed Monday! Make sure to treat yourself to something today to get you throw the Monday-slump! I know I definitely have a vanilla iced coffee in my near future :)

casual bodysuit & converses

 My Outfit Details: BODYSUIT Printed Bodysuit (under $50!) // SHORTS Cuffed Denim Shorts // EARRINGS Kendra Scott 'Alex' Earrings // BRACELET Alex & Ani Gold Bracelet // PURSE Black Crossbody Tassel Purse (similar linked) // SHOES White & Gold Converse All-Stars

Happy Friday!

It has been a wonderful week organizing my apartment and running fun house errands. I have also enjoyed exploring our new city! Just a mere three minute walk from my house, I can get to an ice cream shop, a cute little library, Starbucks, Coffee Bean, and Trader Joes! Woohoo! The hubby and I definitely scored on this apartment.

In other news, if you didn't notice, I wore two bodysuits in one week! First, there was this black short sleeve number from Wednesday. Now I'm obsessing over this printed mock neck bodysuit. I know that I am a little late to the game, but I am having so much fun styling bodysuits this summer. They pair wonderfully with a pair of denim shorts and simple Converse All-Stars. I found my gold and white pair on sale for under $45. Not only are these shoes are cute and comfy, but they are giving me flashbacks to my junior high and high school days. Converses were a uniform staple of mine back in the day :)

I hope that you have a lovely weekend! As always, I am so appreciative of all of your support in my blogging adventure!

dark high waisted shorts

June 21, 2017







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

June 19, 2017











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 :)
