Summer Dress


Hello sunburn... yikes, this happened when I went on my three mile run a few days ago, I didn't think it was even that sunny out.  Apparently, I was wrong.  With the help of some heavy duty aloe lotion it went away a few days later.  This dress pretty much screams summer to me!  I thought it would be the perfect time to feature it because to me Memorial Day weekend is the summer kickoff (even though it won't stop raining in Colorado).  I am crossing my fingers that it stops a little bit this weekend so I can layout by the pool, but I have a feel it's only a wish at this point.

Lilly Dress Number Two

My second and last Lilly for Target dress (which I fiercely snagged in the last smallest size available) fits nicely after a quick visit to my seamstress.  I absolutely adore this dress, I have nothing like it in my closet.  Sadly, many people were unable to get any of the Lilly Pulitzer dresses at Target and I would normally say go check out eBay (and you definitely still should), but it's insane that people are selling them for double or triple of their retail.  I completely understand that it is supply and demand (supply is very low, almost gone and demand is still high), but it's sad how many people just loaded their carts with as much product as they could to go turn around and sell it on eBay.

Wedges: Forever 21 (old), Similar, Similar

Watch: Charming Charlie (old), Similar (under $30), Similar but pricey

On my Mind: Fitness lately

Why, hello... yes it's me, you thought I was on another one of my "blogging vacations" didn't you!?


I signed up for Tone it Up Bikini Series 2015 with one of my girlfriends from college.  I have had been sticking to the workouts, even a few of the early morning ones, but last week was insanely busy with traveling for work and I fell off my fitness path.  I worked out a few times when I was at my conference, but not diligently.  Luckily it's never to late to get back on track!

 I bought these bands for my Fitbit flex a few months back, I love having options but one thing I have noticed is that my bands have started to get dirty and I have literally tried everything to clean them and nothing has worked.  If you have any tips, please let me know what they are.  I really want this one by Tory Burch... maybe for my birthday.  Also, I am thinking about doing a post/review of my Fitbit, let me know if that is something you guys are interested in.

One of the #TIUBikiniSeries challenges was to snap a photo of your workout outfits for the week, I found this to be not only fun, but totally motivating.  Here are a few of mine...

 Below I linked the shoes and sport bras.  I went on a (mini) shopping spree for sports bras at Forever 21, they fit nicely and for the price I could not say no.  I read the reviews and many girls said they were not supportive, I can definitely see why, but if you are like me and have a smaller chest these will still work great for you!  If you are interested in purchasing a few, I recommend trying them on first, I was a small in one but then randomly a medium in another...
Thanks for reading, have a wonderful week!

 Happy May! I feel like NOW it's officially Spring and people can't think I am crazy for wearing dresses anymore.  I have been really into embroidered dresses and tops, I just had a few come in the mail that I ordered recently.  Below are a few options that I am loving!

Tie Dye


This week has been incredibly busy with work! So today's post is short and sweet, a fun and easy dress for Spring.  I love the tie-dye, it makes this dress easy to wear by only needing simple dainty jewelery.  And a bonus, this dress was only $30 (it runs very small, I am wearing a medium).

Wedding Wednesday: The Bridal Shower


We are about 5 month out from our wedding (goodness, it feels like there is still SO much to get done!), which means that the bridal shower is just around the corner.  Here is a bit of inspiration of my bridal shower... I can't wait to have mimosas with friends and family to celebrate our upcoming wedding!  Pink and gold everything, how perfect, right?  This DIY will be a must have for a simple, but darling centerpiece.

Spring Date Night Look

It's that time of the year, when bright colors are available in stores and online! I have been trying to make an effort to brighten up my closet, I have so much black, gray and navy for work; I definitely lack fun vibrant colors.  I love how well these heels coordinate with this dress, which would both be perfect for date night.  I also think the heels would to go well with a neutral outfit for a fun neon pop.

Lilly for Target - My thoughts

Wedges: Forever 21 (old), Similar, Similar, Cute Option
KS Ring

I could not believe how insane the Lilly Pulitzer collab for Target really was.  I checked the site at about midnight MST on Saturday and it had crashed, so I just went to bed and decided I would try my luck in stores.  Initially I was going to head to Target when I got around to it, but I woke up at 7 a.m. and saw the news for all of the other store that were ahead of our time so I hustled over to Target in my yoga leggings and no makeup to venture into the craziness to see what I could get my hands on.  Luckily the Target near us only had about 20 people in line when I arrive at 7:45 a.m.  I managed to get the dress pictured above, as well as this shift dress (which I had to get a size 6, so I will have to have it altered), these fun shorts and a few other small accessories.  I was surprised by how small the collection of clothing they had for sale at the Target I went to was, I thought most of the dresses would be at all of the stores.

As far as the quality goes, it seems to be very good for the price, the cotton shirt dresses are thick with high quality adorable zippers! Overall I am satisfied with the line, I just wish Target was more prepared for the madness, I missed out on this bikini because of the website crashing :-/

Lilly's coming to Target, in 2 days!

A few of my favorite from the collection, okay honestly I love the entire collection!

Just in case you have not heard (because it has literally been everywhere) Lilly Pulitzer is coming to Target!  There could not be a better collab and it's at the most perfect time possible!  Make sure to mark your calendars to place your orders asap.  I know I will be doing both online and in-store shopping!


Spring into the Office

I would say this is the perfect outfit for a Spring day at the office, but not today.  The snow is coming down heavy and not stopping, so I am bundled up in layers :(
