Workwear: Blushing Navy

July 30, 2015

{Navy Blue Maxi Dress ~ Nordstrom Rack Clearance {similar here} / Blush Pink Blazer ~ H&M / Sandals ~ Kohl's {on clearance here!}}
I am in love with this color combination; navy blue will always be a favorite color of mine to wear.  I think it is such a sophisticated shade and goes well with everything. I always struggle with whether maxi dresses are office-appropriate but somehow pairing this one with a blazer and heels made it more polished and I love it! :)

Workwear: Golden

July 21, 2015

{Mustard Yellow Jersey Dress ~ Asos {available here!} / Metallic Striped Tote ~ Kohl's {available here!} / Brown Suede Wedges ~ Target {super old!} / Sunnies ~ Forever 21}
This is hands down the most comfortable dress that I own. The sleeves are long enough to provide coverage {which I love for dresses worn to the office} and the length is absolutely perfect. It hits right below the knee and looks adorable with flats and even better with heels. And this color! Gosh, this color is the most stunning shade of golden mustard yellow that I think looks so good against brown skin. This dress was just one of the purchases that made sense.  I love when that happens! :)

Review + Giveaway: Redbubble Studio Pouch! {CLOSED!}

July 17, 2015

Happy Friday everyone! 
I am excited to share this adorable candy pouch, via who recently added drawstring bags and pouches to its line of personal accessory bags as part of the Art in Motion campaign. I am a sucker for cute accessories and this adorable Sweet Candy Painted Pattern Studio Pouch, by artist Micklyn from South Africa just makes me smile! 
Find out how you can win this cutie below!

This pouch can be used to tote lipstick – which is what I use it for – my lipstick collection is currently out of control, lol! .  I also sometimes use pouches like these to house my keys, wallet, lipsticks, and other little things so that I can easily transport them when I am changing purses. It makes life super easy! :)

I can also see this cutesy candy pouch being worn as a clutch for an evening out – with jeans, a simple t-shirt, heels and a bright lip. That would be so cute!

I am a huge fan of this cute Studio Pouch and I am sure whoever wins this cutie will be too!  These pouches are so unique.  And affordable! None of them are over $25, which I think is great.  I just bought THIS one. It's so fitting. hehe, I LOVE it!
For your chance to win this large Sweet Candy pouch, simply visit the Studio Pouches section over at and comment below what your favorite design is.
I will randomly select a winner on Tuesday, July 28th at noon.

11 Years!

July 14, 2015

My husband and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary last Friday! We attended my girlfriend's wedding that evening, which made it extra special – Weddings are the ultimate date nights! And it was such a love-filled day {and weekend!}.
As cliché as it may sound, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world being married to my husband.  Of course things aren't perfect but what we have is so special and real – it makes me happy every single day waking up in this life with this man and our children. I am so blessed!
I decided to get extra fancy for the wedding and literally broke my neck to order THIS dress back in June!  It is absolutely stunning in real life and these pictures surprisingly do it no justice. I may or may not have taken it in {all myself!} a tad too much around the bust {oops!} but I felt gorgeous in this beauty. It is seriously like a piece of art.
I kept the jewelry simple with only wearing some pretty dangly coral colored earrings {to match my lippie} and grabbed this vintage ivory resin clutch to wear at the last minute.  I couldn't attend the wedding in uncomfortable shoes so grabbing my go-to ankle strap gold heels was a must! I even applied some eye shadow – something I never have time for – when applying my makeup that evening. 
It was the perfect anniversary night!  Eleven years down, an infinity to go! :)



Workwear: Summer Dress

July 7, 2015


 {Coral Smocked Waist Summer Dress ~ Forever 21 / White Linen Moto Jacket ~ Nordstrom Rack / Brown Wedges ~ Shoedazzle "Rebekkah" / Metallic Striped Straw Tote ~ Kohl's {LOVE!!}
I am all about summer dresses and straw totes lately.  Nothing compares to the ease of throwing on a cute summery dress, a pair of comfy wedges and topping it off with a fab straw tote in the summertime! This bag is super adorable and surprisingly goes well with so much in my closet.  I will be getting a ton of use out of it.
