Monday we meet again! And oh hello- you & I meet again, too! 🙂 If you typically keep up with my blog, you have probably noticed my posts have been MIA the past couple weeks. So let me apologize first off! Second off, I plan on making up for that in the weeks to come. No matter how busy life may get I refuse to let my website and this platform slip away from me!
All that said, I hope life is dandy for you & that the warm weather has been inspiring you to shop for your closet 😉 I mean spring temperatures call for dresses, denim cutoffs and straw bags! You can’t ask for much more than that. I was on one of my weekly shopping trips at Nordstrom’s last week & came across this TopShop dress and had to have it! I love the 70’s vibe it puts off & it’s so girly with the polka dot tie around the neck.
Thinking it would be great for a shower or even rehearsal dinner you have coming up. I am probably going to take it with me to Napa in a couple months, as it will be perfect for our day when we tour vineyards! The price is a little more than I typically spend, but I figured I could get good use out of it with our different festivities this summer… so it was worth the $90 in my opinion. I am wearing a size 2, but would size up to a 4 if I had to do it over again! It’s a little tight around my booty… which is always my problem. And TopShop usually runs small for me, so I prefer to size up!
Are you in to bold prints like this one? Have a good week!
Hi love! Happy hump-day 🙂 Today is kicking off my Wedding Wednesday posts, so I hope you are ready. We are less than three months out until the big day, so I am in full wedding mode & so excited for all of the festivities to start! Whether you are a bride-to-be, serious girl friend or just a lover of all things wedding related, I hope you will follow along with me. I am going to be sharing everything from shower attire, wedding planning tips & even budgeting advice!
To kick off this series, I am collaborating with one of my favorite online stores, Red Dress Boutique. When I saw this romper I knew I had to have it. I mean honestly, have you seen anything cuter? I am obsessed! The first wedding festivity we have is our couples shower, which my MOH is so kind to throw for us! It is at the beginning of September, so I wanted something that had a hint of summer, but did not scream fall! I think this romper accomplishes just that. From the lace details, to the cutout back & the flower embellishments… it gives me all the heart eyes.
I styled it with my favorite go-to Marc Fisher wedges, because I felt as if the romper had to be styled with a platform & not a pump or heel. However, if you can envision it styled that way, I know you will rock it 😉 With the low v in the front & open back you are unable to wear a bra, but hello- that’s what they invented sticky boobs for! For reference on the romper, I am wearing a size small, but honestly my booty could have taken a medium [this is always a problem of mine when I am wearing rompers]. Oh & Red Dress Boutique seriously has not only the best clothes, but best prices, too! This romper is under $60, which is a steal for the quality & gorgeous detail!
I cannot wait to wear this beauty to our shower & be surrounded by all of our close friends. September 10th needs to hurry up, so I can whip this cutie out again 😉
All of my outfit details are linked below. Thanks so much for stopping by!

St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse: Nordstrom//
Hey girl hey, happy Monday! I have been so busy this past week traveling for work & playing catch up on my emails, I haven’t even made time to post a blog post. Hey, I am not making excuses though! I know life is busy for all of us. 🙂 And can I just add that I am mind blown that it is already August?! Seriously though, where the heck did this summer go? I am getting excited, because that means we are that much closer to our wedding day (96 days to be exact).
With summer coming to an end, you might be in major need of a good tanning product. Yes, you read the title to this post correct, tan in a can 😉 My momma & I have always called tanning products in a can or bottle this, so you could say the name has just stuck! Any who, I am one who all through high school tanned in a tanning bed ( I don’t need the lectures, I know how bad it is for you) because we all wanted to be as tan as possible. And looking back at pictures I am not sure why my mom did not stop me! One, it’s awful for your skin & 2, I looked like an oompa loompa. Thank goodness those days have come & gone! Now, I just like a subtle glow, where my legs are not completely blinding.
With that being said, lately I have been using St. Tropez’s Bronzing Mousse in Classic. I know tanning products like these can sometimes be extremely scary, because you do not want to look splotchy, but honestly I swear by this product! It goes on super evenly with the St. Tropez mit. So much so, after putting it on and letting it sit for 4 hours, I look like I walked straight out of a spray tan. AKA my favorite thing in the world! I also invested in the St. Tropez Bronzing Face Lotion in Classic, because let’s be real- what’s better than your face being tan? I think nothing!
Now, now, now, I know these products are a little on the pricey side, but my thinking is it lasts just as long as a spray tan when you apply it & it’s about the same cost. However, you get MULTIPLE uses out of it, so it’s a win-win in my book! You can find these products at ULTA, Nordstrom or Sephora & I have linked them below in case you want to shop them online.
Hopefully this helps for all you pasty ladies 😉 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week.
If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, welcome to the best week of your life [well in the shopping world at least]! You may be wondering why I say that… solely because the sale has gone live to everyone & their mom [literally] 😉 With that being said, I wanted to help a sista’ out & roundup my favorite jeans for you!
Jeans & boots are my two favorite things to splurge on with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, solely because these are items I will get good wear out of & it is worth saving the money! You can see above that I am wearing the high waisted, button up pair from the sale & I seriously adore them. They are under $50, so comfortable & hide everything in [if you know what I mean]! Oh & just for reference, I sized up to a 26 in these, as they are not as stretchy. Any who, I am one who hates spending a ton on jeans, but I know it is so worth it, so see below for my faves. I have rounded them up based on price, just so it is easier to select what you want depending on your budget!
$50 & Under
Happy shopping & better yet, happy Friday! 🙂
Sometimes I browse websites like Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Free People, etc. finding so many items that I really want to purchase . However, if you are like me, you cannot justify spending $50+ on a shirt or dress. Seriously though, I typically do not wear pieces in my closet more than a few times. I mean I obviously have my exceptional items I have on constant rotate, but for the most time I wear things just a couple times.
What I am getting at, is that I have a great website where you can find $10-$20 items that are honestly so cute & for the most part good quality. The website I am referring to is SheInside! I have been buying a lot of items from here recently, because I am planning a wedding & on a major budget. In fact, the dress I am wearing above is from SheIn for under $20! AND it is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. SheInside is great for those hidden gems that you will receive so many compliments on! Seriously though, I worked at market last month & wore numerous pieces from SheInside & received countless compliments. I mean I don’t know about you, but if I pay $10 for a shirt & a bunch of people say they like it, that is a win in my book!
So a bunch of you have asked me recently, are the pieces worth the quality? How fast do the items ship? Are the pieces try to size? Where do I begin, their website has so much! Well I am here to walk you through how to shop via SheInside.
Quality: I have found better quality, but I think this is something you give up when you are paying such a low price! There are several items I have bought that are fabulous quality though & I cannot complain.
Shipping: Yes, it typically can take up to 2 weeks to get your package. I typically select expedited shipping, solely because my order total is so low for so many items. Worth the couple extra dollars if you ask me 😉
Sizing: Shirts & dresses I always size up & buy a small. I normally wear an XS from other stores, but SheIn typically runs a little small… so I advise to read the item description and if need be, size up!
Where to begin: I always start on their “new to date” tab! This is where you will find what was just added. I seriously love that I can get on their website everyday & find something I hadn’t seen the day before. I always pin through each of the dated tabs & go from there.
Have a question I didn’t answer? Feel free to comment below! Happy affordable shopping, friend 🙂
