Alright Spring...I am ready for you! Although it is feeling a little more like it, it's still not there yet. This dress has spring time written all over it (hence the floral pattern). I will say the only thing I will miss about the cooler weather is my favorite OTK boots and I am trying to wear them as much as possible before I have to officially put them up until next season. I am so obsessed with long necklaces lately and starting my collection now. I feel like I'm bringing out my inner dress up days when I was a little girl because I and I'm sure many others used to LOVE playing dress up with long beaded necklaces. This dress is the brand "Honey Punch" and I got it at a local boutique. I could not find it online unfortunately, but have linked similar ones down below! 🙂
Black will always be one of my favorite colors. It is so chic and looks great with everything! (DUH!) lol. I recently got this top from one of my favorite online stores, LuLu's and you can get it >HERE<. Currently one of my favorite tops; I love how it ruffles. Oh and remember me saying I have an obsession with TJ Maxx lately!? I got these Paige jeans there and you cannot beat that price! So be on the lookout in your local store for nice brands like this. Hope you all have a fab day!
Happy Monday loves! This look is one of my faves and coincides with my love for fringe. This is actually a top and I chose to wear it as a dress for the warm weather. I love a piece that can be worn multiple ways and this one can be worn for a casual day or a night out. The booties I'm wearing are Sam Edleman and they are sold out but I linked similar ones down below 🙂 . I'm really drawn to soft colors (pastels) lately and it is the perfect transition to spring. My fiance and I spent our weekend in Pensacola, FL (my hometown). So I got a few blog post photo shoots in while we were down. It was one of my best friends birthdays and it was nice to catch up with all of my friends. We also spent a day with my mom and went to the beach for lunch and shopped a couple places. I have always loved TJ Maxx but my love for it as I get older keeps growing. They have SO much great things in every department and prices you can't beat. Jeremy and I definitely got the cutest stuff for Baylee (our pup) who is way spoiled hehe. P.S. Kylie's lipkits are restocking today at 3 P.M. Pacific time so keep your eye out! 😉 I know I will be trying to get my hands on a couple more kits because I am so obsessed. Hope you all have a fab Monday!
Happy Fri(YAY) everyone! 🙂 I haven't done a "Friday Finds" in a while and I thought today would be a great day to do it. Spring is right around the corner and I could not be more ready. Hello warmer weather, bright colors, and dresses (which are my fave). How cute are all of these items!? I want them all! I actually just purchased the Mumu dress I have shown below because I couldn't pass up what a great deal it is! Perfect for spring and summer; you should definitely check it out. The brand Show Me Your Mumu is one of my all time faves, they have the cutest prints.I hope you all enjoy this edition of "Friday Finds" and have a great weekend!
I finally got my hands on one of the most wanted lipstick and I was and still am very excited. It's the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit and I got the color "Dolce K"; although I really wanted "Posie K" and it was one of the first to sale out. I will admit that I do LOVE the color I got and so happy I decided on it. I have always been into bold lips but have never really used lip liner and it is something I need to work on a bit more LOL. I really do feel like I have "Kylie lips" using this lipstick and I love how plump they make my lips look. This matte lipstick is pretty awesome and very matte. It is easy to apply and it also smells delicious; it smells like the lip smackers Vanilla Frosting I use to get as a kid and I'm sure I'm not the only one 😉 . I have only wore it for this review so far because I just got it yesterday and know that it is a long lasting lipstick because it was a little difficult to remove it with my makeup remover wipes (which is a good thing). I love a long lasting lip because I sometimes forget to re-apply. These lip kits sale out VERY FAST! So fast that I had the color "Posie K" in my cart and when I clicked to pay it was out of my cart. My tip for you to get your hands on one of these is to go follow @KylieCosmetics on Instagram and go turn on post notifications on the profile to be notified every time she posts a new photo. That is how I got my hands on this one because she posts on her cosmetics page to let you know they are available again. I would also suggest going ahead and creating an account on kyliecosmetics.com and be logged in because it slows down the buying process if not. I am hoping to get a couple more colors and Kylie posted earlier today that it is less than a week until her next release. Hope you all have a fab rest of your day!
Happy Fri(YAY) loves! Next week is Valentine's and it is approaching SO fast. I shared a Valentine's gift guide last week and today I thought I'd share some "Pink Picks" I adore in honor of V-Day. I LOVE pink and it has always been my favorite color. So this holiday is always fun for me because there's literally pink EVERYWHERE. I hope you enjoy! This weekend is the Mardi Gras parades in my hometown, Pensacola, FL and I am so excited to spend the weekend there. Mardi Gras is another favorite of my mine and I can't wait to spend it with family and friends. Hope you all have a great weekend!
Happy Monday loves! This past weekend we decided to spend our time at my family's camp in Camden, AL and take some pictures while we were there. Really, it was my idea to snap some pics and I'm thankful that he was willing to take part in all the photo fun LOL. These are not our engagement pictures, just some casual photos I wanted to take while Baylee (our puppy) was still little. Our engagement pictures are scheduled for March and I am so so excited! 🙂 The dress I am wearing is from Shop Hope's in Kelsey's November Style box. I linked a similar one down below 🙂 . I am also wearing my current favorite lipstick which is Mac in the shade Twig. I hope you all have a great day!
Valentines Day is right around the corner and I thought I'd share a gift guide. Whether you're treating yourself this V-day or needing to drop a couple hints to your Valentine; I've got you covered 😉 . For the makeup guru, the girly-girl, and everyday wear. If you're looking for a great pair of rain boots that are stylish and will last you for a while, then I suggest investing in some "Hunter" boots. All of these items are so cute to me and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I have been absent from my blog for a while now and I feel like I am saying that more often, in which I apologize. I LOVE to blog but sometimes it doesn't fit in my schedule as much as I would like it to. I recently started back school and only have TWO semesters left (YAY) so I will finish over the summer. My fiance and I also got a puppy last month and have been busy taking care of her. She is a black lab we named Baylee and she is so cute yet a handful. We love having her and she definitely brings us happiness. Hope you all have a fab Wednesday and thanks for stopping by! P.S. You can find this adorable lace bra >HERE<
Happy Monday! This dress is everything. If you do not own a Piko dress than I suggest you invest in one. I wear this all of the time (it's my go-to lately). I love it because it is super comfy, cute, and so versatile. It also looks good on many body types. I usually wear mine with boots and add in a blanket scarf for a cute seasonal look. The weather in Alabama and Florida (where I go back and forth), is so wishy/washy. One day it is FREEZING and the next it is very hot, so I just layered necklaces for this look because it was one of those warmer days. This was what I wore Thanksgiving and I am just getting around to posting it. Also, before I got engaged if anyone notices I am not wearing a ring. I hope you all are having a great December so far. I still cannot believe Christmas is so close and I have yet to start my shopping. Any ways, I hope you all have a fab rest of your day!
^Our very first picture together 🙂From the time Jeremy and I met I knew there was something different (in a good way of course). He is so sweet and a true gentleman. We met after an Alabama football game where I was hanging out with one of my best friends who was down for the weekend and he was with his friends. For those of you who don’t know, I attend the University of Alabama where I live in Tuscaloosa. He came up and introduced himself and we ended up talking all night. The next day, I received a text asking if I wanted to do lunch and so we did. From then on we started going on more dates. He lives about an hour from Tuscaloosa so it was always convenient. We started dating two months after we met, October 31, 2014. We recently celebrated our “one year” of being together and it’s been one of the best years. He is truly the love of my life and best friend. We always have so much fun together. He also treats me with so much respect and I can be my total self around him. That’s how it is suppose to be when you meet your true love.
How He ProposedHe proposed on November 28th, this past Saturday at my cousin’s wedding. The proposal could not have been more sweet or perfect to me. It was everything I had dreamed of and more. My cousin got engaged about two years ago and I got to be apart where I hid and took pictures. So her and her husband being involved in mine was very special to me. They mean a lot to Jeremy and I and I thank them for sharing their big day with us. Lauren (my cousin) is one of my very best friends and we have always been really close.
^The Newly Weds! 🙂We all know that there is a bouquet toss at every wedding and the one who catches is it the one who is to be married next. When she went to throw it she turned around and handed it to me. I was then turned around to see Jeremy on one knee with the song “Like Jesus Does” by Eric Church playing. I was so shocked and emotional, it was the best ever. I of course said YES and it is the best feeling ever being engaged to your true love!
^The next morning 🙂 .. The wedding party stayed on Pensacola Beach so we took some pics on the balcony!
