Candy Stripe





{Chambray and White Striped Dress ~ Forever 21+  Hot Pink Silk Blazer ~ Thrifted / Color Block Sandals ~ Dolce Vita / Gold Stretch Belt ~ Thrifted}
 
Happy Tuesday!  I am back from our amazing anniversary vacation in Cancun, feeling quite refreshed and loving my golden tan. What better way to celebrate the summer than with stripes and bright sandals? This was the perfect outfit to wear on the first Monday in the office after vacation; it made me happy!
 
Speaking of happiness, after a week of pure bliss at an amazing all inclusive adult-only resort, and reflecting on our relationship and how important family and happiness is to us, our energy has shifted quite a bit.  With being so busy with life, work, schedules, housework and the day-to-day stress of keeping everything together, it can be easy to forget to smile and gripe about the smallest of problems.  We will no longer complain about things that don't matter but instead will focus on appreciating the beautiful life that we have.  I am looking forward to savoring these last few weeks of summer – especially our upcoming family vacation to Myrtle Beach. :) 
 
 
xoxo, thanks for reading! ♥

Ten Years // Wedding Anniversary Photo Shoot

Here are a few shots from our tenth wedding anniversary photo shoot.  I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be married to the best husband, father, friend and life partner I could ever wish for. Ten years down, a lifetime to go!
 
We had so much fun shooting these.  I want to send a huge thank you to my big sister Tifini for capturing these moments and so many more!  She took well over 1,000 pics and they are all amazing! I can't wait to sort through them all and order a coffee table book and canvas. 
 
Style notes: this amazing sequined trimmed peach kimono is K-Dash by Kardashian and was purchased from QVC. Get it here! // The pale peach tulle skirt was made by me, by following this tutorial.
