Fall Fashion Accesories


Tomorrow is the official start of Fall and, while it stills feels like summer weather in Florida, I'm already planning all the cute fashion accessories in preparation for the crisp air finally making it's way south.

5 Recent Purchases - For Me

TGIF! It's been a while since I've managed to post on a Friday.

Other than all the random household and pet items I purchase from Amazon, I really haven't done much shopping for myself in the last few months.

Dresses From the Past


I've had this post sitting in my drafts since July of last year. It somehow slipped through the cracks and I forgot about it. Anyways, as much as I'm a jeans and cute top kind of girl, I love dresses for certain occasions. Since it's been a year from when this post was drafted, I've added a few more dresses to the list.

Cruising Outfit Inspiration: Key West and Cuba

Our cruise to Cuba is finally on the horizon after being cancelled due to Hurricane Irma back in September last year. The weather forecast isn't looking great but I'm praying it's not accurate as it's been the past few weekends.  These are some outfit ideas for the trip to hopefully prevent me from over-packing but I can't make any promises there.

New Workout Gear


It's been years since I refreshed my workout gear and with holes in my favorite leggings, it prompted me to start the search for some affordable yet stylish and comfortable pieces to update my workout wardrobe. Breathable tank tops, supportive sports bras, and comfy tights are high up on my list.

Blushing For Valentine's Day


Happy Valentine's and Galentine's Day my lovely friends!

K and I celebrated Valentine's day last night with Thai food for dinner. Our work schedules this week are crazy busy so that was the only opportunity for us to catch up but some fun things are planned for the weekend ahead!

Flashes of Fall - Fashion Faves


I love seeing all the cute Fall outfits my blogger friends are wearing up north and just wish we could experience a real Fall. The changing colors of the leaves and the cool weather makes me want to head to Nashville where our friends live to experience all the Fall foliage.

Fun in Florals


After riding out Hurricane Irma, which hit us in Central Florida on Sunday through Monday, and then having to go back to work on Tuesday (while schools were out all and most businesses were closed), I've been a bit of nervous wreck over here. Driving while lights are out at major intersections and debris everywhere is a hazardous commute. There are so many reports of people losing their lives in the aftermath due to stupid and/or accidental mistakes on the road, with generators powering their homes, and you name it. I'm just happy Friday is here because I really need to lighten the mood around here with some fun in the fashion department.

I found this cute little floral number and wore it out to Kate's Birthday Brunch a few weekends ago.

#GirlBoss - Book Review & Outfit Crushes


 I just finished reading #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal apparel. I actually didn't know who she was prior to reading the book but the title alone drew me in so I purchased it to listen to on my commute.

In her early twenties, Sophia started out by selling vintage clothing on her eBay store named "Nasty Gal Vintage", the name was inspired by one of Betty Davis' songs. After separating from eBay and launching the Nasty Gal online retail website, Sophia built the multi-million dollar brand in just 7 years.

Resort Style



Right before we left for Mexico I found this cute fringed kimono at Target and knew I had to have it. The lightweight material along with the floppy hat made a comfortable outfit perfect for exploring the shops in the Playa del Carmen village and then heading to the pool at our resort to relax.

The Little Black Dress


Every girl needs a little black dress or five. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many black dresses I have although many are beachy/casual or maxi dresses. I wanted to share some of the true LBDs in my closet from the past and present.

20 Things I've Purchased in 2017

Looking back at my purchase orders for the year, I have to say I've been quite good with no major splurges just one off items here and there. Some for the house, some for Lola, and some for me... all usually on major sale.



Then & Now High-Low Hem Dress

I bought this high-low dress back in Summer of 2014 for a friend's wedding weekend in Punta Cana. The material is light and airy and it was perfect for a tropical venue. I wore it to their rehearsal party the night before the wedding.


Friday Faves

 

This cute little nugget joined our team at work on Monday morning. We call him a therapy dog (because of pure cuteness) not to be taken literally. He is as sweet as can be but we need to get over the potty training stage as with all puppies.

Boho Transition Outfit


I recently shared some affordable Festival Style outfits that I found at Target and Kohl's in anticipation for my first concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver. I don't own many festival style pieces of clothing but my bestie recently gifted me this Boho Kimono which is made of super soft, lightweight material and is a great transition piece.

Festival Style


I don't go to as many concerts and festivals as I used to in the past but last night I booked flights, along with some friends, to Denver to see one of our favorite bands perform at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. It couldn't be more of a dream come true. K and I visited Denver last year but didn't make it out to Red Rocks which was high up on my list of things to do so this year I'm making it happen.

Happy Friday lovely friends!

I'm relieved the weekend is here to relax a little but also entertain my in-laws as this is the first time they're visiting our new home. I had a late start at putting this post together so I'll keep it short and sweet just like I hope today plays out in anticipation of the weekend.

Friday Faves


As always I'm relieved it's Friday! I can't even complain that I had a crazy week or anything because it was quite stress-free for a change. I'm just looking forward to a fairly quiet weekend with no big plans or traveling so I can enjoy some downtime at home.
