Romantic Lace Top

Apr 30, 2017








Such a busy weekend! I had a prom shoot yesterday then on Sunday I had a graduation group to shoot. Can't wait to get all of the images edited this week! I'm also hoping to find time to go to IKEA one day this week so I can get the items for my new closet/office space. So much to do! 

I love the details on this top- the high neck, the lace, the hem, def a new favorite! I love feminine tops paired with jeans and simple heels. I feel put together with very little effort in my look haha.

This is probably one of my favorite outfits I've worn in a while (besides this one!)! I love the simple colors and the femininity of the lace cami. I can't wait to wear this cami with my leather moto...talk about juxtaposition. 

I thought I was done with everything today and crawled into my bed at like 10:30- super early for me. Anyway, I was thinking, 'I know there's something I forgot to do! What is it?' I couldn't think of anything so I got comfy and turned the tv on then I was like 'duh! You didn't do a blog post.' BLOGGER FAIL. Oh well, one day I will be super organized and on top of things. Today is not that day though!

Little Black (cold shoulder) Dress

Apr 21, 2017











Sunglasses, Celine

Excuse me while I live in this dress ALL SUMMER LONG. It is so flattering and I am obsessed with the cold shoulder detail. The fabric does not wrinkle and it fits TTS. Highly recommend! Also, still obsessed with this bag, last seen here!

I have a busy weekend ahead! On Saturday I have a prom group to shoot and I'm hoping the weather holds up! I really want these kids to have some great pictures to look back on. Good news! We started working on the new closet space! We had a door frame taken out and had sheet rock put in to fill the hole, I'm hoping the rest of the process goes just as smooth! Anyway, enjoy the weekend 💖

Happy Friday Eve! So I have wanted a 'cloffice' for a while. I currently share a closet space with my husband- when we moved in we saved a bedroom and moved the door frame so that we could use that room as a big walk in closet. And I LOVE IT, I really do. We had custom shelving and racks put in and he even surprised me with a great custom vanity. The only issue is I need more space, embarrassingly enough. But when clothes are like, your job, and you get c/o items pretty often, eventually that's what happens! So. We are planning to turn one of our spare bedrooms into my new closet and office space. I have been pinning like a mad lady and I am sooo excited! Plus, bonus, my husband won't have to see my unorganized crap everywhere haha. Stay tuned for updates!

I wore this earlier this week for our trip to the museums and I can't tell you how comfortable these $40 jeans are! They legit feel like leggings and they neverrr lose their shape. Obsessed.

It's that time of year again-dresses and Pink Drink everrrday! I love a dress all year, but esp in the warmer months when you can just throw one on with sandals and go! So much easier than putting pants on. I tied a knot in this one to give it a different look but it is the best non-clingy material. The back has a cute criss-cross detail at the neckline...actually when I bought it I thought the criss-cross went in the front, so when I put it on to wear I had it on backwards. I really need to start trying things on IN STORE. I last wore this jacket here & I'm still obsessed. It's seriously a work of art.

Today my sister and I took my little cousin to Raleigh to visit the state museums and the capitol building. I had not been to the museums in yearssss and had forgotten how amazing our state museums are. We only had time to visit the NC Museum of History and the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, but both were amazing. Admission is free FYI, so if you're in the area definitely take advantage of it! The exhibits are first class and I love how both are laid out. The history museum has an exhibit downstairs that literally tells the story of NC, from Native Americans before the Europeans settled all the way to the industrial period. The science museum has a killer butterfly exhibit that you can go in, but it was closed today :/ Anyway! We had a very educational day and it was nice to brush up on my NC facts :)

How cute is my sister's outfit?? I made her let me take a picture haha


This adorable cat just walked up to where we were taking pics and laid right at my sister's feet. He was so cute and the sweetest thing!

Embroidered Top...

Bag, Chanel

I hope everyone had an amazing Easter weekend! You know I love my family time so it was pretty great. My husband and I did a little bit of outside work and got all of our plants moved to our patio. Currently trying to convince him that we need azalea bushes planted all around our little outside area. He's not convinced 😝I am so excited about my peonies this year! My mother in law planted them in this gorgeous turquoise pot for my birthday last year but it was past peony season, so this will be the first time they bloom for me! So far I have 9 little buds and I'm crossing my fingers for more. 

I went shopping (light shopping, almost not even to be considered shopping) with my sisters on Friday after our lunch outing and found this top and immediately knew I had to have it. My sister Taylor also bought it, but she got the black version- which is great because we are the same size & now we can swap :) I love the embroidery detail & I also like that you can wear it as an off the shoulder top OR a wide neck peasant top. You can also wear the sleeves pushed up at the elbows which is super cute. Off the shoulder is my favorite trend this season, (Last off the sholder post here) I don't like to wear shorts too too often so this is a nice balance for the warmer months :)

First of all, lavender lattes for life. Secondly, I had the best time this evening meeting up with my blogger girls for a late lunch. We sat outside and on a patio and the weather was absolutely perfect! Emily brought her youngest daughter who is a total sweetheart and drew me a picture! So precious. Anyway, I think it's important to get together to chat and vent about things, blogging is stressful man! It's nice to have people who understand and are going through the same things <3 Thankful for the relationships I have made on this journey & for each and every one of you!

Little Lace Dress...

Apr 13, 2017

Obvi you can tell I have been obsessing over neutrals and pastels lately and this dress is a pastel blue dream! The lace detail on the back, the sleeves, the loose flowy fit..so perfect! Runs TTS, I ordered a medium and had to have it taken in, so stick with your regular size. So cute for bridal showers, casual weddings, date night, dinner at the beach, so many options!

I have been ditching the gym lately for workouts outside and I absolutely love it. I actually look forward to my workouts, and that says a lot for me! The weather is perfect and my mom and sister joined me tonight, it's just refreshing. My allergies hate me in the mornings- seriously I get the worst headaches and ithcy eyes, but it's worth it. Anyway, since I'm on a rambling spree...I think I eat too much sushi. I had tuna sashimi tonight for the third time this week, and it's only Monday. It's my favorite and it doesn't help that I can get that and rice and cucumber salad (my favorite meal lately) like two minutes from where I live. I go on these kicks where I eat the same thing over and over and over and it's all I want. Why am I like this?? Ha

PS! I have two drugstore finds I am absolutely loving! One is a sunless tanner and the other is an oil-free BB Cream. I'm going to use them for another week or so before doing a review, just to make sure there are no bad side effects lol.
