Longing for Lace.

Reminiscing about the beautiful summer weather… Should be here soon!!! This is a post I wrote about 9 months ago when I first started my blog. Longing for lace today! Shared on Peeled Wellness!!!


This past year in April, Ryley and my spring break schedules didn’t line up so Ryley took a personal day to spend time with me during my break. Aweee… Anyway, there was snow on the ground but we were both itching for sun and spring, so we ventured off to find a nature park near our new house! We stumbled across this beautiful park just a few blocks away which was breathtaking even with all the yucky snow! They even had a small mini-golf area with a big Snoopy (see below!!!) ! We knew we HAD to go back once it got nice! During this time of year, I love a comfy, chic tank with lots of romantic detail. I also ADORE all white! Nothing like a romantic lace tank to make you feel like a lady! You just CAN”T go wrong with lace and all white this time of year!! So feminine and elegant! I decided to pair this tank with a nice big shoulder bag with a beautiful texture since another school year is about to start back up and I just know I will need a nice big bag! And the loafers I picked here are feminine and girly and look great with the brown bag!
















All photos were taken by my loving husband! This amazing CLOSET STAPLE- the lacy tank is from Express. White jeans are from The Loft. The shoes are from Marshalls (old- similar here at Forever 21 for only 16.80- what a steal!). Bag is from The Limited (old- similar here in a beautiful caramel brown!)

Paint Brush Inspired Dress.

A new trend seems to have emerged as of late- a popular female (or male) bonding night consists of painting and wine! I personally love the concept! In fact, my loving sister planned such an event for me and the other lovely ladies in my wedding party about a year ago! It was an absolutely FANTASTIC experience! I mean, wine, paint, friends, laughs… what more is there?! So this dress totally brought back some nostalgic feelings from that experience because I think the pattern looks like brush strokes! So what did I do? I paired this gorgeous black and white classic with a pop of fuchsia color for spring! Don’t mind the wind! It was a crazzzzy wind shoot!!!

One Blouse, Two Looks.

So I found this great blouse at H&M and just couldn’t pass it up! As soon as I saw it, my mind began to race with different stylings! I could see it with boyfriend jeans and the perfect pump. Or I could see it as a swimsuit cover up with beach waves and a bright pop of finger nail polish. Or I could see it with some grunge black jeans and cheetah print accessories! As soon as I visualized the cheetah print, I could not put this one back on the rack! Then I saw the headband and I was DONE FOR! It was going home! And the best part- this versatile piece was under $30! It has a loose, cozy fit for an effortless look on a windy weekend! Look #1: Girls look Oh-So-SWEET in Headbands! For both looks, I kept all the same basics (shirt, pants, shoes, handbag). But I switched out the accessories! For this one, I chose a flirty headband and some sweet feminine pearl earrings. I rolled the sleeves loosely, and tucked in one side of the blouse in the front! The handbag is my favorite “everyday” Michael Kors bag. Paired with a pair of my favorite Toms wedges (these might be the most comfy shoes I own BTW)! And they support a great cause!

For this second casual, cozy look I picked out a rich, deep cheetah print scarf with gold embellishments, a Michael Kors handbag (because who doesn’t need a little more Michael Kors in their life?!) and of course a cheery cherry lip gloss! Roll the sleeves casually for a slouchy relaxed look!
