Peach and Mint

Hello lovies! This week thus far has been so beautiful and sunny! The pictures from this post, unfortunately had really weird lighting, so it's more of a quick outfit of the day. I am in love with this silver/metallic floral blazer, it goes with so many different pieces! Most importantly, I have finally mastered the sock bun, as seen below LOL. I am always a few steps behind all the hair trends (it took me FOREVER and 10,000 youtube tutorials to finally learn the fishtail braid!) 
My two favorite colors so far this summer are Mint and Peach/Coral. I love these pink Charlotte Russe shorts I got on sale last summer, they're actually somewhat dressy not that my pictures show of course. I've also decided it's time to ditch my casper-white skin tone and start laying out ASAP. Holy cow am I pale!

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! What are your guys' plans for this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend?

Romper Season

I'm baaaaaaaack!

So after what I now realized has been about a 4 month hiatus from my blog (I can't believe it was really that long!) I'm back with a new post!

In the 4 months that I have been out of the blogging world I have been tackling many things in my life, INCLUDING losing weight. I have lost 20 some pounds and am feeling so great physically and mentally! Which brings me to this post.
I have never been one to wear rompers in the summer. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore them. They are so cute! However, before losing weight I would've never considered actually buying and wearing one.

I found this gem at Charlotte Russe shopping the other day and figured 'what the heck' I'll give it a try. I instantly loved it! It's sweet and flirty, without the too much skin factor I cringe thinking about (hey my thunder thighs still need some work). So yet again my wonderful boyfriend took on the role of playing photographer. Many of the original photos I was of course pouting, making silly faces or ones that would lead you to believe I wanted to smack him in the face. (He is rarely serious these days)

I am thrilled that summer is here and am finding so much inspiration in the now and upcoming trends for the season :) 
Hope everyone had a fabulous Wednesday!

Hi loves! Once again it has been a while, and I'd rather not make excuses, I'm just happy to be back! I hope everyone had a great New Years and beginning to their January! 

Typically, I wear a lot of black. Not just because it's the dress code at my job, but because of course, black is very slimming. Speaking of slimming...guess who's lost 15 pounds over the past month and a half? Yep, THIS GIRL! :) I'm so ecstatic, and I can't wait to keep losing and get into shape!

So today's outfit of the day is mainly black, paired with my FAVORITE new necklace. I got this beaut for my birthday in December from my boyfriend (who just so happens to be my photographer for my blog as well, and I think he did great on today's photos!)

What I wore:
Marshall's top
Charlotte Russe Coat (old)
Pacsun leggings; similar ones found here
Rings; gifted

I'm hoping to do at least one more post this week, but don't quote me on that!

Side note to my followers and IFB friends: Who of you are going to the Conference in February? Leave me a comment on here, or message me through my IFB account :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous week! And don't forget to follow my networks ;)

What to Wear: NYE

Still trying to find the perfect New Years Eve dress? I'll admit, with the stresses and business that came with Christmas, I completely overlooked shopping for the perfect NYE dress, but you better believe I'm on the hunt now! I've always been a HUGE believer in having a sequin dress for New Years, for whatever reason to me, NYE and sparkle are synonymous. You also don't want to overdo it and completely damage your bank account on one dress you may or may not ever wear again.

Just for you guys, I've narrowed down my top picks that I've found online.

Shimmering Paillette Cocktail Dress (in peach above) from Forever 21 - $29.80

Jazzy-Black Sequin Dress from Windsor - $89.90

The Mixed Sequins Dress by LA Boutique on Karma Loop - $45.95

Lauren Conrad Sequin Sheath Dress by LC (at Kohl's) - $48.00

Blue Mesh Insert Skater Dress by Arden B - $29.50

Almost every single one of these dresses is on sale too how great is that? I hope this helped give a few of you procrastinators some ideas and wish everyone luck on finding their perfect dress to bring in the new year! Happy hunting :)

My Week Through Pictures

So, I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the lack of entries the past few weeks, things here have been CRAZY busy! Plus, most bloggers I know don't have to work part time or full time on top of blogging, and with being in retail, it has been nonstop!

My birthday was the 19th, so some of my closest friends took me out for drinks, which was much needed amongst the Christmas chaos, shopping, and work. Then we had Christmas of course, and divided our time between my boyfriend, Mark's family and mine. I felt like Reese Witherspoon in Four Christmases! So much family, so little time!

I didn't get to do an outfit of the day yet unfortunately, but here's some pictures to enjoy of my life the past week!

One of my best friends since high school, Mel & I out for my birthday :)

A collage of my birthday night. I think this pretty much covers it :) LOL.

Some friends of Mark & I had dinner at Carrabba's (I'd never been there before! SO yummy!) This was my birthday cocktail I ordered called the 'Toasted Marshmallow' ... so yum!

Found this candle at BBW and am IN LOVE. Sadly the scent only comes in this candle :( boo

This is my baby! Well, my two-year-old baby :) little Landon in front of our tree, cheesin' as usual :)

Cookies on cookies on cookies, for real! I made sooooo many this year :) What can I say, they were $1 each!!

All dressed up & LOTS of places to go ;)

My new Nikes!!! Can't tell you how obsessed with these I am. Only 3 stores in Ohio had them and my dad managed to snatch one of the last pairs up in my size! He said they had me written all over them ;) It was meant to be! :D

& the award for best boyfriend would go to MINE! He outdid himself on blessing me with this new sewing machine ah :)

Papa (my dad) teaching Landon how to golf. Suiting, since my dad is a golf pro!

Me and the man I've been so blessed to have be in my life this past year. He truly is amazing & I could not love him more!!

"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!" Just love my mini-me! :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and received many blessings! I sure know I did :)
