1. Tan Blazer | 2. Fringe Earrings | 3. Wide Brim Hat (on sale for $12 and comes in three colors!) | 4. Black Top (comes in four other color here)| 5. Striped Button Down | 6. Fringe Cardigan | 7. Faux Leather Shorts | 8. Snakeskin Booties

These are all items that I am seriously considering purchasing. Well, except for the striped top because I thought it was black and white, but it’s actually navy. Womp! Womp! I don’t know why I’m not a navy person, but every time I see something in navy, I get mad that’s not black. Haha! I’ll probably wait on getting the fringe cardigan because sadly, it won’t be sweater weather here for another few months. The real question is, should I get the blazer? It’s kind of Read More

I am a total denim/jeans girl! Always have been and always will be. As a kid, I refused to wear anything but jeans. Even in the summer, I only wanted to wear jeans. And I grew up where just about every day in the summer was over 100 degrees. Wearing jeans in 100+ degree weather…that’s true love right there. Ha! Needless to say, I’ve made it my mission in life to have a killer jeans collection. And thanks to Target’s redesigned denim, my collection just got better.

Target’s new denim line is amazing! So, so, so amazing! They now offer 20 fits in 66 washes, so everyone is sure to find a pair that fits their own individual style. When I heard of their wide selection, all I could think Read More

HAIRSTYLES FOR SHORT HAIR

easy-hairstyles-for-shoulder-length-hair

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I have my two go-to hairstyles (down with textured waves, and a low messy bun), but I actually can style my hair different ways. These are my four favorite ways to style my shoulder length hair…of course two of them you’ve seen many times before. Haha! I also like to do a top knot with face framing pieces (like in this post), but ever since I got that horrible hair cut a month ago that I absolutely hate, my hair is slightly too short to do a top knot 🙁 Anyways, I hope you like these styles!

I’m trying to play around with my hair more to come up with other styles too, so if you know of any easy hairstyles, let me know 🙂 I usually wear my hair the same two ways in my blog posts because I take all my pictures on the same day each week and just change outfits in my car, and those two hairstyles are the easiest to do in a car without a good mirror to look at. 

I recently got a new flat iron and have started using that to Read More

I have worn this outfit, no joke, four times in the past ten days. You can never go wrong with black and white, so why not wear it non-stop? Haha! Most of the time I didn’t wear the denim jacket because it’s been too hot, but when I wore this outfit out to dinner, I brought my jacket because it’s starting to cool off in the evenings. We’ve actually been able to sleep with the air conditioner off and the windows open, and it’s been so nice!
