Remember how I told you that I’m obsessed with wearing shorts + blazers? Yep, I wasn’t lying.

Isn’t this just the perfect summer date night outfit?! Whenever I have a good date night outfit I want to wear, I make Cody take me on a date 🙂 We’re pretty low key date night people so we usually just end up at the movies, and really, I could wear pj’s to the movies and nobody would know because it’s so dark in there, but hey, I’ll take Read More

You guys, this little black dress was almost stolen from me by an evil thief. And by evil thief, I mean my sister. She borrowed it the other weekend when I went to my hometown for a visit, and it looked so gosh darn good on her! I almost felt bad when I took it back because it looked that good on her! Of course, “almost” wasn’t enough to stop me from Read More

Swimsuit season is officially here, and you guys, I have found my perfect swimsuit! I think we can all agree that swimsuits are probably the most difficult item to shop for. No matter your size, we all have insecurities about our bodies (except for maybe Sofia Vergara…girl’s got it going on!). It is so important to find a swimsuit that fits your body type so you can feel confident to hit the beach/pool this season. For me, it’s all about creating the illusion of curves. Like I’ve said before, I have the body of a Read More

So todays outfit is basically the same as this outfit I posted exactly one month ago, only the grey and tan are flipped. Oh, how I love my neutrals! Lately when it comes to jeans, I’m either all about my black jeans or all about my white jeans. I don’t know why but I’m just hating all my regular blue denim jeans. I’m really thinking I might get these from the Nordstrom sale because I need some Read More

Nordstrom is having their half yearly sale, and so many items are 40% OFF!!! These are my favorites from the sale, but I can’t decide which items to get. Hopefully I can narrow down my list because I can’t afford to get everything, but I do really want to get something. Usually when I can’t decide, I say “if I can’t have it all, I won’t get anything”. Worst decision maker ever! Haha!

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale ends 5/30/15

Amazon is also having an awesome sale! They are offering 20% off all fashion items through 5/25/15. Shop the sale here. Read More

This is the story of the romper that almost didn’t happen: Once upon a time, I saw this amazing black romper while online window shopping. I knew it could be easily dressed up or down or even worn as a swimsuit coverup. It had to be mine! Or did it? I’m the world’s worst decision maker. I debated purchasing it for about a week, and by the time I finally decided to get it, it was sold out 🙁 Noooooooo! I searched high and low and everywhere I could think of but couldn’t find it. And then something magical happened…it was Read More

I have the pink one so I’ve been wearing that but now I think I need more. Plus, I Read More
