Dear Readers, I’d like for you to meet our newest little addition to our family, Finley Bear. He is a 6.5 weeks old chocolate Toy Poodle, currently weighing at 1.5 pounds. He’s the sweetest and most ornery dog you’ll ever meet. He’s teething so he absolutely loves to nibble on everything. He likes to wake me up at three in the morning to bite my ears or to chew on his loudest squeaky toy. I don’t mind it one bit though. He’s too cute to be angry at. He’s only been a part of our family for a few days now but he’s absolutely captured our hearts. He’s brought so much joy into our lives regardless of the lack of sleep.
Hey Guys! Today I’m kicking off a new series featuring rompers that are just under $25. I’ve teamed up with Target to bring you some great summer buys that you need in your wardrobe right this minute. I wanted to start this series off with my personal favorite embroidered crochet romper. I feel like I belong at a music festival in this outfit. Anyone have any concert tickets? You can obviously wear this romper by itself but I wanted to share with you how to style it to it’s maximum capacity. I wore a trendy handkerchief around my neck, cinched the romper with a belt and tied the look together with my timeless combat boots.
I’m so excited about this Target series of three. I hope to give you more affordable clothing options in the future. You don’t need to spend a fortune to feel good and look good. Am I right?
Oh Target. Why do you have to be so good? Every time Wyatt and I go on a Target run I always stumble upon some great buys that are impossible to resist. I found this striped tee on our latest endeavor to Target while on the phone with my Maid of Honor. At the moment I decided on this black and white print but now that I’m thinking about it, I might have to go back and stock up on a few more. Why? Why do I need more basic tee’s added to my wardrobe? Because they’re just $6, that’s why. I spend more on a Chipotle burrito. I believe this is the “Mossimo” brand that makes up the majority of Target’s inventory. I love this brand personally. The material of this top is incredibly soft and comfy.
I wanted to rock this tee but I wanted to do so in a chic street style manner. So… I threw on my new distressed midi skirt and stopped by my local Whole Foods, bought these bouquet of roses for myself and went on with my day. I just love the contrast of the roses and my lipstick against this grey background. The striped tee neutralizes everything while bringing some pattern along with it. Not to mention that my current read, “Me Before You” matches this set up perfectly. This was all accidental by the way.
I’m just about halfway done with my book and I’m in love so far. I love fiction books based on romance and adventure. I really love that the movie for it comes out soon. My plan is to finish it before the movie premiers and watch it on it’s opening day! The book is ALWAYS better than the movie but it’s still so amazing to see the book that you’ve read for weeks come to life right before your eyes. If you’re looking for something to read and you’re a bit of a romantic, you need this book.
Meet Stanley, Stanley the pineapple. I brought Stanley around with me everywhere I went when in Hawaii. The funny thing is that I don’t actually like eating pineapple all that much but I do love a good photo shoot with one. It’s like the perfect accessory when galloping around town. A guy even asked me, “What in the world are you doing with that pineapple?” Well sir, I don’t even know.
I miss Hawaii, I miss the ocean but what I miss the most is the beautiful scenery. Big, bold and beautiful flowers were on every corner. I felt like I was dreaming. The vibrant colors nearly hurt my eyes. Talk about a fashion bloggers dream.
Let’s talk about checked print for a moment shall we? I’m giving you a heads up now- this fun pattern will be this summers hot trend. I’ve already seen all sorts of variety of the checked pattern in nearly every clothing store I’ve come across and I’m not hating it. I’ve been a sucker and have already purchased enough of it to last me all summer. This dress is one of those purchases and I’m in love.
Tropical Vacation Packing Tip: Only pack flow-y, easy breezy clothing because you won’t want to wear anything else. Just the thought of putting something constricting or form fitting while I was in Hawaii made me cringe. I felt best in my maxi dresses and loose t-shirts. The heat is the main reason you don’t have to wear anything too tight and let’s not forget about the gnarly sunburn you’ll get on your first day of your honeymoon..or was that just me?
Wyatt and I were too eager and did a little sun bathing by the ocean and got burnt our very first day of our honeymoon, I don’t have any regrets though because mine turned into a perfect golden tan just 2 days later but note to future self: you can’t ever pack enough sunscreen.
I bought this beautiful light teal colored maxi dress not just for the honeymoon but for everyday after that. I cannot get over how comfortable this dress is. I’ve always loved maxi dresses, I just don’t own enough in my closet. I’m so happy with this dress purchase because it was under $20! CRAZY!
