Playing Catch Up

Well hello everyone! I hope you all have been having a great couple weeks and I apologize once again for delaying posts. I absolutely adore blogging and it has helped me in so many ways but lately I have been a bit busy and that is not an excuse to not be doing what I love. I am ready to get buckled down and start posting more. In the next couple weeks I will be enjoying my ending summer here in Pensacola, FL and preparing to move back to Tuscaloosa, AL for school. I am a bit sad for the summer ending but what better way to go back to school knowing football season is ahead of us! I LOVE football games and Saturdays in the south are possibly the best thing ever, ha. Which reminds me I need to start shopping for game day looks. Other than being behind on posts, I have been enjoying the beach, doing dinners, and fun outings with friends at night. Oh and tomorrow night is the Corey Smith concert with some of my girlfriends and I couldn’t be more excited. Today I am sharing some of my photos from the iPhone lately and even some OOTD’s so I hope you enjoy. I also have been brainstorming for future posts so be looking out for new posts to come. A little sneak peek to one I plan on doing in the near future is “How to Stay Confident” because that is something I have always struggled with and have been here lately hence my late blog posting. Hoping to have it up very soon because I feel as if I cannot be the only one struggling with self confidence and maybe I can help someone suffering in the same ways I do. On the other hand, I hope you enjoy and have a fabulous day (as I always say, lol). Also a big thanks to everyone supporting me and reading my posts, it truly means a lot and makes what I love doing so much easier.

Judith March said it best “Willie, Waylon, Merle, and Hank” which is now one of my favorite t-shirts and let me admit that those country legends will always be some of my favorites to listen to.

This little princess named Payton (my best friends little girl) had her 3rd birthday party and I dressed up in the Minnie costume to have a tea party. Cutest thing ever to hear her talk to *Minnie*

My sweet Dixie girl riding in the car after the vet. She rides like this every time she goes on a car ride and it is the cutest.

3 Ways to Wear Converses

Good afternoon loves! I apologize for lack of posts lately and for this late post. I am just getting back in town from Tuscaloosa to prepare for this next school year which is literally right around the corner. I must say I am a bit excited as football season is ahead of us and getting back into my routine of things. I will say I am going to miss the summer, my family, friends, and of course the BEACH. As my obsession of converses is kicking in high gear and I have also noticed more and more people rocking them as well. I figured it would be a great post to do 3 different looks to wear with these super cool kicks. Converse have been around for years now and they have only become more popular throughout the years. I absolutely adore mine and continuing to add to my collection. They are so versatile with different looks and comfy, oh so comfy! Although there is a variety of ways to wear these, here are just a few fun-cute ways to rock them. Oh and for everyone who is to afraid to try these kicks out, just do it you can never go wrong! ;)

Feeling Bright

This look is totally summery with the bright colors and patterned skirt and I am loving the vibe. Mixing bold patterns and colors can be daring but mixing the right color panels and you’re good to go. I love the girlishness of the skirt and the length and fit is perfect. Pairing a bold colored shoe was a must for me because I wanted to bring out more of the colors in the print. Any ways, I am really glad today is friday and ready to bring on the weekend once again and really hoping the rain holds off. I will be staying at my condo again and hopefully beaching it if the weather is good. Hope you all have a fun filled weekend!

Celfie

I am loving this shirt I purchased in Florence, Italy at the H&M store and finally got a chance to wear it. For those who don’t know, it’s spelled like “Celine” would be but instead it says “Celfie” like “Selfie” and everyone loves a good selfie (LOL). I also thought that it was appropriate to do a couple selfles myself while wearing the shirt, ha. Any who, I wanted to do something fun with this look because the shirt itself is fun so I decided to pair it with a fun skirt and of course converses. I am truly loving converses lately and am building my collection with different colors. I love that they go great with anything and I mean anything, sometimes I pair them with nike shorts and yoga pants for a relaxed class look. I hope you all have a fab rest of the day.

Summertime Blues

As summertime is coming to an end, you may be getting the summertime blues (or at least I am). I live in Florida so my summer consists of the beach and I LOVE it. It is the best thing ever (literally) and like I said before, it is the best medicine. Any who, today’s post inspiration is the beach to say the least and I wanted to share some last minute items that are perfect for summertime (never to late, right!?). Hope you enjoy!

Fringe && Boots

Today’s look is what I like to call “back to my roots” and it may sound silly to some but cowgirl boots are shoes I have been wearing since I was a little girl. These photos were taken at our beautiful farm where I enjoy so much to be. I just got this dress last week and it is my new favorite. I love that it is light weight material and it is trimmed up top with fringe. I also love that I can pair it with my boots and even wedges for a different look. Any ways, I hope you all had a fun filled weekend as did I spending it on the water with family and friends. I absolutely adore summertime and think sunshine and saltwater is the best type of medicine. In Pensacola, FL my hometown we have a show called “Blue Angels” and it is an airshow that flys over our beach. It is so much fun and super crowded at the same time but well worth it. So that is how I spent my weekend and ready to spend a few more weekends on the water before heading back to Tuscaloosa, AL for school.

My Vegas Style

It’s summertime as we all know and you know what that means!? VACATIONS! Today I am sharing 3 looks inspiring Las Vegas style for the Aria Resort. I was given the opportunity to be a part of the Vegas style blog challenge and I was so excited to be able to style different outfits for the lovely Las Vegas. Starting the day off with getting some sunshine in the 3 amazing pools, where you can chill under cabanas, take a dip, and enjoy a nice cold beverage at the bar (sounds so relaxing, right!?). When choosing the first look for the pool, I went with chic; all black with a very classic coverup featuring a fun embellishment with rhinestones. Transitioning into lunch where there is a variety of restaurants to choose from, I chose the lovely Lemongrass for the appeal and the mouth watering menu. The look I chose for lunch is girly and fun with the accessories and elegant enough for the atmosphere of the restaurant. Now, moving onto the last look of the day for a fun night eating out at another exquisite restaurant and dancing the night away at one of the hottest night clubs in town. Going with Javier’s for dining as it is right up my alley with the food for choice and center of the casino floor. After dining and maybe playing a couple slot machines, Haze nightclub would be the place to dance the night away. For this look I chose edgy yet classy with a little black dress trimmed with lace, bold accessories, and gold pumps. I hope you enjoy the looks for Vegas as I enjoyed creating them wishing I was there! ;)
