Guys I am SO SO excited to share my newest clothing brand obsession with y’all…BUDDY LOVE! You guys know I LOVE bright bold colors, prints + accents and anything with a girly feel so when I discovered Buddy Love I instantly fell in love! From chic dresses to flirty tops to great swim pieces, Buddy Love has all of the fun pieces you’ll want to wear all summer long + the best part? They fit great, are amazing quality + are at an affordable price point.
I first discovered Buddy Love via Red Dress Boutique since I am always adding new pieces to my wardrobe from their new arrivals section + when I spotted these fun prints + neon hues I knew this brand would be a new go-to for me!
One of my current Buddy Love favorites is this cobalt reptile print dress. When I slipped it on not only did I feel sassy, fierce + sexy, but I also feel like Paris Hilton + crew would have so rocked this outfit in the early 2000’s + any little bit of nostalgia I can feel when it comes to fashion, I am all about it!
Before I begin sharing my current Buddy Love obsessions, I want to share how I styled this dress with these classic white pumps + vintage Prada bag. I got this bag when I was in middle school + now it’s making a come back. Don’t you love that?! When things come back in style after being forgotten for so long? Such an exciting feeling + a lesson to never let go of pieces that may make a comeback one day!
Now to round up some of my current Buddy Love favorites…these picks are sure to have you stylin’ this summer + I can’t wait to stock up on more of these beautiful pieces hehe ♥
Happy Sunday Funday ya’ll! I hope you all are up to some fun adventures!
Friday I had the opportunity to head to one of the happiest places on earth, Disneyland! From checking out some new rides, to enjoying some yummy dishes to viewing some amazing performances, Disneyland never disappoints + this summer, they have so many fun activities for you to check out + enjoy all season long!
If you are anything like me, you are a Disney lover + are always searching for the inside scoop on what to check out when you are at the park to maximize your trip, so today I am sharing some fun new happenings at both Disneyland + California Adventure specially for summer.
While everyone is talking about Galaxy’s Edge (and trust me it is AMAZING) I want to share just how much there is to do at Disneyland that the whole family will love! First up…a fun new theatrical performance at California Adventure, ‘Tale of the Lion King’ at the Palisades Stage!
The show is an all-new musical showcase inspired by everyone’s favorite Disney movie, The Lion King! Highly energetic performers depict an imaginative story that celebrates the spirit of Africa + the amazing movie highlighting our favorite characters Simba, Scar, Mufasa + more!
Next up?! California Adventure brought back a fan favorite ride, ‘Soarin’ Over California‘ in Grizzly Peak! From June 1st – June 30th, you can hop on this fun ride that brings you Soarin’ over iconic California landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Malibu + more. Let me tell ya, this ride is a BLAST + being a Californian it is so fun to explore my surroundings in this fun, unique way.
I live for a yummy lunch break + one of our go-to spots is the Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier that has delicious new brunch dishes like avocado toast, french toast, potato flautas, yummy cocktails + more.
My personal favorite is their adult french toast, it is beyond scrumptious + is super filling for a long day at the park. Cocktail wise you can’t go wrong with their Cinnamon Toast Cocktail…it’s as if your favorite bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch was put into a bottle + it included a hint of vodka…SO GOOD!
I LOVE Toy Story + all things Pixar so that means you 100% need to play Midway Mania (a fun interactive shooting game at Pixar Pier that is a replica of Andy’s room from Toy Story), along with the Incredicoaster where you go on a wild rollercoaster ride to chase down JackJack (my fav)!
There’s also a new Toy Story themed ride at Pixar Pier for kiddos, Jessie’s Critter Carousel so you should definitely check that out if you have young ones!
I also love Cars Landso had to stop by to hang out with Mater + the gang because why not?!
Now off to Disneyland Park…where they refurbished the gorgeous Sleeping Beauty Castle making it as gorgeous as ever to have your magical photo moment!
The castle is just so iconic + it’s even more gorgeous at night during the newly returned, ‘Disneyland Forever‘ fireworks spectacular that takes place every night at 9:30pm.
I love Disneyland so much, I feel like there is magic behind every corner + because of Galaxy’s Edge opening, a lot of my old time favorite attractions have shorter lines or have been updated to pair with the Star Wars theme!
Anytime I head to Disneyland, I always go on the Haunted Mansion ride, It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean + Splash Mountain (you can’t go wrong with any of these)!
BUT one of my fav rides is over in Tomorrowland, Space Mountain which has been renamed Hyperspace Mountain + rethemed to highlight StarWars. You get to hurtle through Hyperspace while dodging furious dogfights during the high-speed adventure!
One of my favorite parts about heading to Disney is meeting all of my favorite characters like Winnie The Pooh, Tiger + more. What I love about Disney is that no matter what age you are, you can always be a kid + have a magical time at Disneyland.
Are you heading to Disneyland this summer?!
I am always happy to provide some fun tips + advice on where to go, what to see + what to do!
Let’s Be Honest…finding pieces when online shopping that fit your style + silhouette can be a bit of a challenge. Without being able to try them on in store or without being familiar with how styles run from that particular website, shopping online can be a challenge when you are in between sizes, have a curvy figure or just want to feel good + look good no matter what the trend. Luckily, I found a one stop shop for curvy gals that want to look chic + trendy without getting pieces that aren’t giving in the right areas…JustMySize.com!
From stylish clothing pieces to undergarments, lingerie, bras + more, Just My Size has fashion forward pieces that are chic, trendy + fit perfectly for women of all sizes. What I love about Just My Size is that they mix the perfect blend f style + comfort to give modern curvy gals like myself the best selection of on point fashion at an affordable price point. Their stylish hug all the right places + the fabrics they use are super soft, comfortable + last well after your first initial wears!
This dress is one of my favorites – it is so classy for work + also a chic enough dress to wear for nice occasions like graduations, engagement parties, baby showers etc. The best part? The fabric is so soft ♥
Also found another dressy dress I am loving for work + play – this beauty is perfect for every occasion.
Now their tops are even more amazing…how chic is this off the shoulder blouse? I styled it here with a skirt but it is also great for spring into summer with jeans + wedges!
The bras / bralettes from Just My Size are my favorite! I am a bit busty on top + all their bras fit so good! They offer comfort, support + plenty of style. I stocked up on a bunch of their bras + panties since they don’t ride up, don’t fall down + don’t hurt after all day wear. This full support bra is one of my favorites. The panties are also great since you can buy individual styles or multipack at a great price point.
Guess what?! To celebrate Just My Size turning 35, I have a special promo code for you to shop the site!

ICYMI – I have a slight obsession with Red Dress Boutique! From adorable dresses to chic tops to stylish heels, accessories + more, Red Dress has become my go-to for all of my fashionable pieces I wear for work + play. I can’t get over how affordable their styles are + they make the color lover in me beyond happy! Since summer is here + that means time to switch up your wardrobe, I am rounding up my current favs from Red Dress Boutique below!
I hope ya’ll have been having a great 3 day weekend! Whether you are traveling or hitting the beach or enjoying some yummy BBQ, it’s important to not just enjoy the weekend but remember who + why this weekend is possible + that is because of the amazing men + women who fought for this country that are remembered on this Memorial Day ♥
It’s days like today that emphasize what it truly is to be an American. For citizens to put their lives on the line to protect + fight for the freedoms of Americans everywhere is what this country is all about. We fight for what is right, we stand up + protect what we have worked incredibly hard to achieve + we appreciate everything that it’s taken to get to where we are.
While I haven’t traveled all over the world or live outside the US, I couldn’t imagine living + wanting to be anywhere else other than the amazing USA. I love the ability to have the freedom to be whoever I want to be, achieve any dream I may have + to live in a country that people everywhere want to be a part of.
That brings us to today, Memorial Day. While I have never had the honor of serving our country in the armed forces, I am eternally grateful to those who have + continue to do so. The brave men, women + their families that serve this country are what makes America the strong, passionate country we love to be apart of.
No matter what side of the political aisle you are on, we all as Americans should come together to remember what makes this country truly great + how everyone in the armed forces made everything we have today possible ♥
I will forever be proud + honored to be an American ♥
Now to today’s patriotic outfit!
I recently discovered the brand Buddy Love + I am OBSESSED! Their colorful, statement making pieces are the epitome of Missy style with bright Pops Of Color, bold prints + amazing silhouettes! They have everything from cute tops to dresses to swimwear + so much more. Their pieces run true to size + are available at a bunch of my fav online boutiques like Red Dress Boutique, Mint Julep + Shoptiques.
This dress is super fun + flirty so I linked to a similar style from Buddy LoveHERE. I paired it with a dusty rose Gucci belt which has been my go-to this summer since it matches with absolutely everything. Definitely a great investment piece!
My wedges are from Red Dress Boutique + they are not just stylish but also super comfortable!!! Every summer I pretty much live in wedges + these beauties are it!
As for my bag, this one is a must have – the white ark bag is great for every summer occasion from date night, to summer weddings, to graduations + more…it fits all your essentials + looks chic with every outfit.
