A Look Ft. My Nordstrom Picks

I feel that I need to be candid with you all. As I sit here and write this post, I must be honest, it’s the very last thing I want to be doing right now. It is Sunday night, my face is soaked with tears that are streaming down my face. My mom has just left for the airport after her short weekend here, and I miss her so much already. She got the mom sense that I needed some serious cuddle time (she seems to always time her visits just right, moms), and flew out Friday morning to surprise me at work that afternoon. I turned the corner and there she was. Instant waterworks. We had the most amazing weekend, just spending time together, talking, shopping, you know, all the mom things. And she knew I’d be unable to take off work, so she booked her flight for early Monday morning to prevent me from even trying to ask off. And now, here I sit, the weekend officially over, reminiscing on our first hug outside my office, crying like a baby, wishing I could hit the rewind button. If you’ve seen my earlier posts, you know that I avoided […]

Run Sweat Think Pink

Happy Almost Friday! Today’s post is all about running to the weekend (literally) in some of the cutest most versatile workout gear I’ve ever owned! I swooped up these sale leggings a few weeks ago and am loving them so much, I just had to share! Of course, I was automatically drawn to the bright pink color, who wouldn’t be?! But add the sale price tag, my favorite brand, and the extreme comfort level and I’m all about it, friends. If you’re not one for the bright bold colors when it comes to workout gear, don’t fear! These leggings come in solid black, and this particular pair is reversible to a light heather gray! Pieces like this are so great in my opinion, because they can appeal to every color personality. I know that the pink can be a bit loud, so on days when I’m feeling a little more subdued, or want to wear my bright blue tank, I can switch to a calmer neutral. I love how these can be perfect for yoga or your go-to workout class, or just running to get a coffee on Saturday morning. I’ve been knotting this tee non-stop lately with both these […]

Show Me Your Mumu Minidress

Happy Mumu Monday, friends! Today’s post is another bright one, can you tell I’m getting into yellow this summer?! How can you not when it literally makes you feel like a real-life sunshine! I’m avoiding posting about the Anniversary Sale still because it’s too darn hot to think about anything other than little dresses and summer clothes, so here goes. If you’ve been following along for a while then you know I absolutely LOVE Show Me Your Mumu pieces. Bright, fun, and flattering to boot, I’d buy the entire store if my wallet would allow it. They’re always coming out with gorgeous new prints and hues that are sure to add some pizazz to even the most neutral of wardrobes. When I saw this yellow minidress, it just screamed summer fun and I knew it’d be a great addition to my summer dress collection! Also, can we talk about how PERFECT this would be for a summer wedding?! In addition to the happiest color on the planet, this dress has some of the most darling details! The front has the cutest criss cross straps in the front, which is the perfect touch for someone like me with broader shoulders. The […]

Blush + White

Happy Thursday, friends! I was already fried from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale after one day, so posts on my purchases will come later I think. For now, I want to share one of my favorite color combos with you: blush + white. I love the feminine and chic look when put together, it looks so great in any season! When I saw these high-waisted shorts, I immediately had a blush crush and had to have them. Light and loose, perfect for summer, and a beautiful delicate pink color that looks flattering on ANY skin tone! I’ve basically started treating blush as a neutral. I love that these shorts have an elastic waist band, making them comfortable and easy to wear all day and night. There’s even a cute little tie on the front for an extra touch! PS. These shorts sold out super fast, so I’ve linked some other similar options at the end of the post! I’m sure you can tell that I cannot resist the clean look of a white top. Or any piece for that matter. It’s so fresh and bright, and makes any color pop. I paired the blush shorts with this gorgeous white bodysuit. It […]

Mellow Yellow

Starting off this Monday with something sunshine-bright to give you all that extra boost for the day! I’m sure you’ve seen this off the shoulder dress all over the place, this has been the “it” dress of the summer! I mean how could it not be, it’s super easy to throw on (you all know that’s the ultimate win in my book), it’s got an off the shoulder ruffled hem, comes in tons of colors, and right now, it’s on sale for $41, friends! Get on it! I wanted to switch things up from my normal pinks and blues and go with something a little brighter, so I snagged this darling dress in the brightest boldest yellow and I love it! It does run a tad big so I would definitely recommend sizing down. For reference, I’m wearing a small here and would downsize to an extra small. I was so surprised how easy this dress was. It’s a fun color so you really don’t need much to glam it up, but adding fun statement jewelry complements it just the same. I paired the dress with a statement necklace that I purchased from my new favorite Etsy shop (I’m sure […]
