Does this dress make me look like a flamingo? hehe :p ICYMI the latest Instagram pose that all the gals are doing is a little something called the ‘Flamingo‘ (no joke it’s a real pose see HERE hehe). Anyways between rocking this stylish flamingo print dress to rockin’ this flamingo pose, I am never wanting summer to end. Honestly this IG pose craze is pretty great since it helps make you look sleek + tall…just like a flamingo haha get it? 😉
Since summer is coming to an end I wanted to get my last licks of summer in by sharing my flamingo look. This cute dress instantly makes me want to head on vacation (in fact we are planning our next getaway now…we are thinking Hawaii! Watchya think?) This dress is actually on MEGA sale from Red Dress Boutique (one of my major favorites as you may know by now haha I do hauls of their great styles basically weekly honestly) so I highly encourage you to shop it + snag it for 50% off!
Ever have one of those really amazing hair days + just feel on top of the world? This shoot day was definitely one of them! Ever since I began my Jenny Craig journey a year ago, my confidence has been through the roof and then a good hair or makeup day is an added bonus. It is crazy to think this time last year I was 60 pounds heavier and look at me now hehe :p
I am so excited to be on vacation! I have had a whirlwind of a year so taking time to relax, unwind + disconnect has been much needed. My boyfriend + I are away in Florida to celebrate my birthday + our anniversary so to get in a tropical state of mind I wanted to share some of my favorite tropical print dresses that I will be rocking on my trip!
These photos were taken before I started Jenny Craig – crazy what a difference this program has made in my life…I have lost over 40 pounds + truly feel so much better than I did when I was shooting these images 😉
Anyways, I can’t remember exactly where I got this tropical print dress but I found a few similar styles I am linking to below:
I don’t know about you, but I have a serious case of the Mondays! After clearing out a full inbox, I am finally feeling a little relieved. Honestly, nothing stresses me out more than an inbox filled with emails. If I see a notification, I must check it…my BF definitely thinks I am a nut but hey…I don’t ever want to leave an e-mail unanswered hehe :p
My boo + I laid low this past weekend since this weekend we are heading to VEGAS! I am super excited to celebrate my boo’s bday in Sin City. While we aren’t big gamblers by any means (we both would rather gamble with our money in the stock market than at the Blackjack table haha :p) we are super excited to explore, relax + live it up! I surprised him with a fun car tour featuring one of his favorite car guys he likes to watch so I am ready to rev up + see what bad ass cars we will get to check out over the weekend!
What I love about fall is how easy it is to transition your favorite summer pieces for cooler weather. This pink pleated midi skirt was on repeat for me this summer – styled with a crop top or body suit, so I styled it for fall with a chambray button down blouse that I tied for a feminine look!
I love this look for fall since it is fun, flirty + great for hanging with friends or date night. I also plan on styling this midi skirt with a chunky sweat for winter with ankle boots!
I love being a little ‘matchy matchy‘ so a pink skirt plus pink heels = perfection!
I feel like every gal needs a cute pair of pink heels to dress up any look. Pair them with jeans, dresses, skirts + even more…they are bound to make a statement.
My bag was a graduation gift to myself when I graduated high school – the Louis Vuitton Speedy. This bag is an oldie but still a goodie.
I hope you all have a fun weekend ahead! My boo + I are heading to San Diego for a baseball game + some relaxation…and you know I already researched for all the fun colored walls + murals to shoot outfits in front of 😉 hehe While we are there, I fully intend on having a romantic date night + that means I need a cute date night look that will also keep me cool with the hot temps this weekend. My solution? This blue halter dress from Venus! I am always up for a bold pop of color + the halter style fits me perfectly so when I found this dress, I was IN…hook, line + sinker!
This dress is lightweight, flowy + fits perfectly for any occasion. While I LOVE a bold cobalt blue, this dress is also available in red + black. Honestly, I love this dress so much I think I need to buy it in the other colors as well haha :p
My fun flamingo print straw tote is also from Venus. It is a great little go-to for beachy or tropical destinations, and when I wear it I instantly feel like I am on vacation! It retails for under $30 + is a total essential for every gal’s wardrobe.
As for my shoes, I went with this fun pink ankle strap heel to match the pink of the flamingo’s on my purse. What gal doesn’t love a good pink shoe…am I right?!
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! I spent mine BBQing, shooting new outfits + relaxing with my boo. We have been so busy with furnishing our place, shooting campaigns + traveling, sometimes a weekend of rest + relaxation is much needed. You know what else helps me rewind?Blogging! hehe :p Obvious I know but I love sharing style inspo with you guys, especially when it’s head to toe affordable like this look!
This dress + these shoes are under $100…and both make such great essentials to have in your summer wardrobe!
My dress is from Skies Are Blue Clothing. I tend to size up with shift dresses since I like them to be a bit loose rather than constricting, plus I always opt for bigger then dry it a few times in the wash to get the desired fit 😉
What I love about Skies Are Blue Clothing is that they sell online from their site as well as other well known retailers like Nordstrom, Dillard’s etc. Their pieces are always on trend, stylish, amazing quality AND a great price. All pieces typically range from $20 – $60 that is something I LOVE since I change my clothes as often as I change my mood hehe :p
My shoes are also a steal of a deal hehe They are from J Adams Shoes + this style in particular retails for under $50 AND comes in a variety of colors. This ankle strap sandal style is my favorite for summer so you know I will be stocking up on this shoe in every color to match all my summer outfits.
My bag is from Cambridge Satchel. I LOVE their bags because they have great colors + styles PLUS all of their bags are great for work or play. They fit your laptop and all of your work essentials PLUS with their colorful styles like this one, they make for the perfect ‘Pop Of Color‘ to brighten up any look.
