Short Shorts

I love these shorts. Even though they tend to wrinkle at the slightest movement I still love wearing them. The high waist is super flattering and the overall silhouette is much more unique than normal shorts. I just have to invest in a hand steamer to wear these long term. Shoes: Kate Spade (love these) | Shorts: Asos (similar) | Shirt: Sincerely Sweet Boutique | Bag: Kate Spade

7 Wedding Guest Dress Ideas

Something Lacy: Lace is perfect for a wedding. It’s special, classy, and always appropriate. Now comes the hard decision. Should you splurge or save? Something Classically Black: It is perfectly fine to wear a black dress to a wedding. Make sure the material is light and it doesn’t weight you down, though. This is a lovely option. Something Preppy: For a more classic style you can’t go wrong with ruffles, and pink. Pink is always a good idea. Something Formal: A formal wedding is hard because you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a dress you can only wear […]

Spring has sprung

I realize I have been trying to say ‘spring is here’ basically since January. I think it is finally safe to say that spring has officially arrived. I really hope so, Hannah is growing out of all of her coats and I am ready for her to wear her cute summer things! Is that too much to ask? I mean her little summer rompers are just too adorable to be sitting in the closet. Flats: J.Crew factory (similar) | Skirt: Zara (old, but love this) | Top: Express: Similar, but denim | Necklace: Manic Trout | Hat: Target (similar — and maybe […]

5 One Piece Swimsuits To Get You Through Summer

  One piece swimsuits are a must-have this summer (thank goodness). If you’re dying to ditch the bikini I have selected my top-five one piece swimsuits that are anything but boring. Whenever I think of swimwear, I always think Mara Hoffman. Her colorful designs and flattering silhouettes are impossible ignore. This scalloped suit is super flattering and the color is beautiful. This is one of my favorite swimsuits ever — so of course I had to include it on my list! If you’re willing to splurge this suit is just wonderful. I love the little cap sleeves and the classic black […]

Floral Belle

Do you have a go-to look? A silhouette you know you rock the heck out of? Mine is a form fitting top and a full, a-line skirt. I go back to this look over and over because it works for me and makes me feel like a glamazon. If you don’t have a go-to look, find one asap! It makes getting dressed so much easier. If I need to buy something new or get ready in a pinch I have a default silhouette to fall back on. So instead of having a ‘I have nothing to wear!’ meltdown it’s just a matter […]

Springtime Fresh

I am thinking this crisp, white blazer might be a go-to for me this summer. I love a blazer, but I usually go for black or navy styles. This white one is great for spring and summer because it’s so versatile! Now all I need is a blush pink blazer and my blazer arsenal will be complete. Also how cute is this Manic Trout elephant necklace? I think deciding between the elephant pendant and the giraffe pendant was one of the hardest accessory decisions I have had to make. Ultimately I decided on the elephant because I just loved the blue beads. […]

Color Your Spring

Richmond has some pretty awesome murals. They are all over the city and they are all so beautiful. The murals definitely adds some really unique charm to the town. And it makes location scouting for the blog a thousand times easier. 🙂 Also, I am so excited to share that I just signed on to write for Mode, a fun blogging network. I will be sharing some of my articles here from time to time if you’re interested in reading them. My first one is all about summer beach day must-haves. Can you tell I am so ready for summer? Shoes: Go Jane (similar) […]

Working on my fitness

I have to be honest, the gym and I are not besties. I always admire girls who like going to the gym. I am not one of those girls. But after you have a baby, you pretty much have to go to the gym. For me, my post-baby fitness goals weren’t about weight loss, they were about rebuilding muscle tone. My poor stomach felt like a bowl full after the tiny princess arrived so I had to help it out. I find that cute gym clothes, a killer playlist, and finding the right workout for you makes the gym much more bearable. For […]
