This week is slowly creeping by because I am ready for the weekend and July 4th! Who else is with me?!?!? In preparation for the long weekend I wanted to spotlight a brand that will get you vacation ready and that brand is HIHO! HIHO is a Caribbean inspired brand that offers casual comfortable clothing from linen shirts and sweaters to beach dresses, printed cover ups and soft cotton tees.  This brand seriously is a one stop shop for your Summer needs! I recently came across this brand and seriously wanted EVERYTHING on their website!  I have been searching for the perfect little white dress for Summer and this one (pictured above) is it!Read More

The Dress YOU can’t live without

Tularosa Hattie Dress / Jeffrey Campbell Rodillo Hi Wedge

Happy Monday beauties!! Today’s post is on my current absolute favorite dress I own! I have been eyeing this dress for a few months now and when it finally came back in stock I pulled the trigger and got it and haven’t looked back since.  This is the “Hattie” dress by Tularosa.  I truly got this dress for my Nashville trip in a few weeks, but you know how it is when you try to save an article of clothing once you get it in for an occasion and you just HAVE to break it out early?!?! This dress is THAT dress! I seriously wore it the day after I got it in and had all intentions of waiting to share it with my Tecova “Jamie” boots on my Nashville trip, but you all will be seeing it again soon on my Instagram because I’m super impatient (insert cheesy face emoji).  I paired this dress with my Jeffrey Campbell Rodillo- Hi wedge , I live in these wedges and they never get old to me or hurt! Every time I wear them I get so many compliments on the design and how unique they are!Read More

7 Years of Marriage and a Few Pieces of Advice

“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:9

Wow… I can’t believe I have been married for SEVEN years, tomorrow! It’s funny, but since my husband was the only man I ever dated we have actually been together for 11 years.  We began dating when I was 15 years old and he was almost 19.  Like any young couple we went through a few months break ups a couple times, but for the most part we have been together all of my adult life, so life without him is something I have really never known.  I’ve had a lot of people ask if I ever regretted no dating other people and my answer is “no.”  I knew when I began dating my now husband, Brian, that I truly loved him.  Our relationship started unlike most because I was unable to “date” at 15 years old so he had to make a trip to see me every time we did anything.  Not only this, but he was originally my older brother’s friend and my brother wasn’t too fond of this relationship to say the least, at the beginning.  I also have two younger siblings who were always around and seriously hazed my husband at the wishes of my older brother.  This went on for an entire year until I was allowed to “car date!”  During that year of “house arrest”, I was so angry at my siblings because they put us through so much, but what I didn’t realize is it allowed us to grow-up together and we had a bond with my family and my husband’s family that I would not trade for the world.  I am so thankful now to my parents for giving me those boundaries because it was those boundaries that allowed us to develop a friendship that turned into a deeper love for one another.  As the years have continued to pass, our lives have changed but each year we become closer and closer.  I am not here to say that marriage is a piece of cake because anyone who says that, is not telling the truth, but I would not trade it for anything in the world.  So here’s to 7 years and a few “real life” lessons I have learned in marriage.

I guess the saying “You know when you know…” That was me and my husband, Brian! I just wanted to share a little fun fact about my life before I moved on to these hot-to-trot boots that totally have me swooning!Read More

The Perfect Summer Dress Under $100

Tularosa Alice Dress / Tory Burch Miller Sandal / Straw Hat (Similar)

Wish You Were Here Hat 

Summer is HERE and this dress I finally broke down and purchased just went on MAJOR SALE! This dress is by one of my favorite new brands Tularosa and it summer perfection! This is the Alice Dress and it a dress that is flirty, fun and the most amazing pattern!  When I purchased this dress on Revolve clothing I couldn’t wait to get it in and this dress DID NOT disappoint! One of the BEST features is that this dress has cups built in so where the back dips low and the front has a cutout detail, there is no issue having to find a “sticky” bra.  My only complaint with a lot of summery clothing with cut-out backs is that there is either no way to wear a bra or you have to wear “sticky boobs” and I just don’t care for them and they don’t give the support I want.  The day I received the dress in the mail, I went to link it for you all on Instagram and realized it had gone ON SALE Under $90! I was so upset I paid full-price and immediately called Revolve Clothing to see if I could exchange it for the cheaper one.  Revolve was so awesome and said that whenever that happens that they will PRICE MATCH FOR 30 DAYS, that’s a LONG TIME!!! To me, there is nothing better than customer service and that is why I just LOVE Revolve!

This hat that I am wearing is one I have had for YEARS!! However, I have been living in my “Wish You Were Here” hat  (sorry for over posting 🙂 ), but I have found this amazing ‘Come Sail Away’ Floppy Straw Hat for $26 and I have a really good feeling it won’t be in stock long, so GRAB IT NOW

I hope you all are having the BEST day ever and I just wanted to share the dress that I keep posting on repeat 🙂  I also wanted to let you all know that I have created a Summer’s Hot List tab on my website that I am continually updating with some of this summer’s best wardrobe must-haves that are READY TO SHOP (just click on the item and it will take you where you can purchase)! I am also planning a BACHELORETTE to Nashville for my sister, which is seriously like 3 weeks away and I will keep you all updated on some of the hot spots we are going! Do any of you have Nashville MUST SEE or TOP SPOTS?
