Floral Bell Sleeves

Happy Friday eve! I hope you all have had a great week so far. I just got back from a short local work trip, this month has been so crazy with work! But I love being busy, so I'm not complaining :) Onto this look, about a month ago I placed an order with Forever 21 and this top was one item I snagged because of the bell sleeves and great price. You probably have already notice, but I am obsessed with bell sleeves lately...  now I have my eye on this top.

Affordable off the Shoulder Dresses

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Lately I have been loving the off the shoulder trend. When there is a trend that I like, but know may only last for a short period of time, I look at affordable stores like Forever 21, Target and Asos. Below I have linked some of my favorite off the shoulder dresses that won't break the bank.

Front Porch Relaxing

 Lately I have been working on our outdoor spaces, including our front porch. I have slowly been adding pieces to the decor. First I found the bench, then large planters, next was the pillow and lastly was the accent table. I will be posting more photos next week and talking about where I found everything, so stay tuned! But I finally feel like it's coming together and we are starting to utilize our outdoor spaces when the weather is nice. On to this look, I recently picked up this adorable off the shoulder top (it's no longer on their website, but this one is very similar and I have linked more below) , it has really cute back details with buttons. I am really loving the off the shoulder trend, I think I will be embracing it all through summer!

Spring Dress + Block Heels

I am definitely a dress girl. I love spring and summer because I get wear dresses for work and play. This dress is one that I could easily wear to work or on the weekend. I have probably said this before, but I love how easy dresses are, it takes the guesswork out of getting dressed in the mornings. I'm also slightly obsessed with the block heel trend! I saw these sandals at Target and was delighted to find that they are super comfortable. I brought them on a work trip a few weeks back and they were perfect to wear for day and night. Plus there are a bunch of colors to pick from!

My New Favorite Sweater

I hope you are all having a great week so far! We have been having a taste of spring lately and I have been loving it, but it's supposed to be cold and rainy here in Colorado tomorrow, so I thought this look would be the perfect rainy weather outfit. I picked up this grey belle sleeve sweater from Zara while I was in Amsterdam and I have probably worn it at least three times since. I couldn't find it on their website, but I found a lot of other options (that are on sale). I also found this one from the Gap which is really similar, but the bell sleeves are bigger!

JCrew Factory Try-Ons

If you've been following my blog for a while now, you may have seen this post. Well I absolutely love this dress and have worn it a handful of times for work. I love that it's available in coral and blue!

Okay, I CANNOT say enough good things about this top. The material is super high quality and the fit is really nice, plus the ruffle sleeves are adorable. Yes, I bought it :) And these jeans were also another winner for me! They are really comfortable and my favorite type of wash, beware you may need to size down - I'm normally a 26 and I went with a 25.

I am a sucker for a good shirt dress and this one was a favorite. It's cinched in the back, so it creates a nice waistline. I tried on a 0 and it felt a little tight around my hips, a 2 probably would have been just right.

I really loved this dress and I almost bought it, but decided against it. If you like shift dresses you will love this one! I just felt like I needed something that had more shape to it.

Again this top is a great find. FYI, the stripes are navy, not black.

This top was pretty, nothing too crazy about it - it would be cute for work. The jeans were adorable! They are called the Destructed black skinny jeans, I loved the distressed hem. I would recommend sticking with your regular size, the 26 fit perfect.

On my way to checkout I saw this tank and I grabbed an XS (without trying it on) hoping it would work for me. When I got home and tried it on, it was a perfect fit!

 Hello and happy hump day, I'm finally back! I hope you all have been doing well :) About a month ago I went to The Netherlands and lately Bryan and I got so busy with the house that I have started to let my blog slide, but I am back today with a look that I am seriously obsessed with. This outfit has so many aspects that I just love, like stripes, classic colors and my favorite Target booties (which are a few seasons old and no longer available).

Choker Trend


Today I am trying out the chocker trend, something I never thought I would do after high school. I remember how popular it was through my junior and senior year, but I definitely did not expect it to come back. 
Have you been trying out chokers? What are your thoughts?

New Year, New Hair

Happy (late) New Years!! I hope you are all having a great New Year, we have spent the last month getting settled into our new house... which is why I have been totally MIA lately. For the most part our house was pretty much move-in-ready (check out my Instagram for updates on our house). There were just some big cosmetic things we wanted to take care, like painting. We painted our living room and all four bedrooms. 

Anyways, on to this look. I am in love with this parka, and I knew I needed to share it with you all, because it's on sale right now for $35! I was a little worried about quality, but I have had absolutely no issues, it's super warm and the zippers all work great. Also, I colored my hair! I just needed a break from blonde, I am really loving the darker color.

What I'm Loving Lately

Recently I went into Bath and Body Works to check out their 3 wick candles and there were a few that I really liked. I'm not a big fan of the sweet smells, like vanilla or cupcake. I prefer fresh scents and now (thanks to one of my good friends) I am starting to like the masculine scents, like Black Tie

This holiday season I have been loving the "lumberjack" print (that's what Bryan calls it), I purchased this wrapping paper and then I saw this adorable coffee mug and I decided to add it to my buffalo plaid collection.

I'm sure I'm not the only who is loving the new Starbucks Holiday cups, but seriously this year they are SO cute! And if you are looking for fun Christmas gift ideas, these holiday travel mugs would be perfect!

Okay, so even though it has been ridiculously cold in Colorado lately, I have secretly sort of been enjoying the chilly temps. When you wake up to a quite, snowy scenery it's absolutely beautiful (as long as I have a hot coffee) and getting to wear cold weather accessories is definitely a plus! 

Here is an earlier photo to show how much this succulent has grown. I love watching the growth and progress of succulents, my mom and I call them our "babies" when we start the propagation process. I recommend reading this blog post if you are interested in growing your own succulents.

Okay, so I have had one Swell water bottle for a while now and I have been wanting another one for a while now, so I could have a clean one if one was dirty. When I saw this rose gold one, I knew it would be my second investment water bottle.

What are your favorite things lately? Have a great weekend!
