Wedding Guest Attire

I had the pleasure of returning to my home state of Georgia a couple of weekends ago to attend James's cousin Margaret's wedding in Atlanta! I had not attended a wedding since 2013, before I got sick! So, we were both excited to get dressed up and have a nice night together with his family. 

We went shopping separately, but we found what I thought were outfits that coordinated really nicely together. We have both have had a hard really few years together with my struggle, so it was really nice to feel confident and dress up as each other's dates. We were proud of ourselves and so happy to be able to celebrate with his family. 

Scroll through to see the photos and shop the looks at the end! And CONGRATULATIONS MAGGIE AND ALEX! 

My Outfit:
The 1st dress below is the exact one I wore, but mine was the navy. I included some other similar options for you guys, too! I would actually really love to own the white color too, if I had somewhere to wear it! The necklace I linked is exact, and I loved how it complimented everything! The dress was comfortable, flattering for my body shape, and perfect for weather that was a little on the cool side. This is my 1st purchase from this dress brand, and I was impressed! I would definitely purchase from them again. 

My Makeup:
It was my 1st time trying these Faux Mink lashes, and I think they really completed the look. They were super lightweight. I also really recommend this foundation for legit long lasting wear for any event. I know you can't see it, but I had to include my scent of the night, too! :)

James's Look:
James's blog debut - exciting, right? His wool Sport Coat is exact, the rest are all similar. He looked so handsome! I love that he opted for the pocket square in lieu of a tie!

We have another wedding to go to next weekend! 
What are you wearing this wedding season?



Comfy Shoes. Holey Sweatshirt.

Happy Friday! I have been OBSESSED with this sweatshirt and these shoes lately!

I wore this outfit for a day out with my Mom a week or so ago, and I was just so comfy - but still felt like I was sporting some trends. Everything is linked below. The shoes, sweatshirt, jeans, and purse are exact. Jewelry is similar. Shout out to my sweet girlfriend Adi - who sent me the sweatshirt and convinced me that I should wear a medium. :) Now we are also convinced we need this cold shoulder sweatshirt from VS that our friend Megan just got. Thoughts?

I am ready for some SPRING CLEANING!
What are your plans this weekend?

I plan to post some things on Poshmark!



Big Island Fashion

ALOHA! My trip to the Big Island in Hawaii at the beginning of this month was amazing! 

I had so much fun putting together some fun resort/ island looks for my trip and wanted to share them all here in one post for you. They are posted on my Instagram feed as the last few things I published, and as promised, links to items are below in the little thumbnails below each photo! 

Make sure to click the right arrow after each 3 items to view more. If you are reading this in your email and cannot see the shopping galleries I created, please open up the blog in a browser like Chrome or Safari here, and the photos and shopping links should be easier to see.

Day 1:

I wore this fun off the shoulder shirt with a pop of color on the tassels for our 1st night in Hawaii on the Big Island. We stayed at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, and had a lovely sunset happy hour/ dinner at the pool bar at sunset. Shop this look my scrolling and clicking the photos you see above! Tops & jewelry are similar, shorts and clutch are exact! 

Day 2:

We had the pleasure of enjoying the hotel Breakfast Buffet our 2nd morning on the Big Island, and I wore this comfy outfit for a walk along the beach. Tank & shorts are exact! I love the quote on it, "Wherever you are, be all there" I love how the ocean makes me feel - the sounds, the smell, the colors. It is so healing and I tried to be so present and soak up every last second of it. 

Day 3:

We got to go to a fun Welcome Dinner and Party at our hotel our 2nd night of our trip. It was fun to get a little more dressed up for one night, since island life can be super casual! The earrings are almost exact, I got these exact ones in a turquoise color. I couldn't find the exact dress I am wearing, because I bought mine at a little boutique several years ago. I was really very excited to finally wear it though! I linked several similar dresses that would give you the same look, as well as some very similar, affordable sandals!

Day 4:

I wore this simple surfer girl look to tour the island with my best friend and my boyfriend! We saw some really beautiful waterfalls, some volcanic rock, and even drove through a hail storm before getting back to our hotel area. I got the tank I am wearing at Target a few years ago, so I linked some similar tanks that would give you the same look. They always have cute new ones every year, and the ones I linked above are also SO cute and fun. Shorts are exact, and the black sandals are exact, but mine are in their tan color. I also own and love the thinner strap tan ones that I linked.

Day 5:

For my last day in paradise, with a little bit of color on my skin and and my heart and love tank full of paradise, I went with these easy, breezy tropical outfit that I loved. Shorts & tank linked below are exact, the rest are similar items that would help you create the same look. I called this my coral necklace look.

That is it! I didn't take any photos in my swimwear, but please check out this post from when I did my swimsuit shopping! I mostly wore the purple one piece on the right and the black tankini on the right. I also got the BEST black sarong to go with those. It was super soft and lightweight and goes with everything.

I hope you enjoyed this Island wear post. I cannot wait to return to the Big Island again. I feel like I needed one more day to relax on the beach or at the pool or go on a tour. There is never enough time though, right!?

Would you like me to do a packing tips post in the future?
I could also do a post about Hawaii or Maui and places to eat and shop at!?



Date Night Camo

I wore this outfit to a dinner date night with my boyfriend James last week! As usual, I am wearing a mix of Nordstrom and Target fashions!

Shop the look below! Open up this post in your email browser if it is hard to scroll through the images on your email/ phone. The t-shirt I am wearing is in the light pink color. I love this t-shirt as a wardrobe staple. I think I own 3 colors now - pink, white, and kelly green. The earrings are not exact, but I found this awesome similar dupe for only $8!! The lipstick is one of my favorite blush pinks - the color is Brave. I hope you guys enjoy this post.

What are you doing this weekend!? 
I am going to a wedding!



Pink Adidas - Comfy Classic Cool

I wore these classic Adidas Shoes in High School in the late 90s! It is so fun to see them back in style. I found my pink ones in the photo at a Nordstrom Rack store. I wasn't sure about them at 1st, but who could say no to that blush pastel pink shoe!? And it fits me so great. I tried to link the similar styles below. I have seen tons of options in little girls' sizes too. So, you are in luck for your daughter, niece, or yourself if you wear youth sizes in tennis shoes!

Let me know if you find these pink adidas anywhere else. I would love to let my readers know! I also am in LOVE with these comfy jeans and t-shirt. If I had to wear one outfit every day for the next week or month, this would hands down be IT. Everything is linked below! Click the right arrow to scroll through the thumbnails and shop! 

Open the full post HERE if you cannot see the preview or shoppable links in your email inbox!

I hope you enjoy your week and if you are in a time zone like I am - Daylight Savings Time ends! WHOOHOOO!!! 

Let me know if you have these shoes or anything similar! I would love to see new ways to style them for the spring and summer coming up. 



Girls' Night Out OOTD

I had so much fun last weekend at the House of Blues Anaheim Preview Night Party! I don't get a ton of GNO (Girls' Night Out)(s), so it was exciting to get glammed up and hang out with the ladies! Shop my look by clicking the images below! 

I would have to say the best decision in choosing this look was wearing leggings! 



Softest Pajamas Ever

These pajamas are the softest most comfy pair I now own! I was actually shopping for a wedding guest dress with my mom one day, when we strolled into Soma to check out the underwear and PJs. These pajama sets that we found are so cute and thin and just amazing quality. I wore them right away, and cannot wait to purchase more sets. I want to just throw out all my old t-shirts and boxer shorts and have only nice, luxury PJs! Click through the images below to shop everything I am wearing in the photo! I could not find the exact bedding, but it is by Daisy Fuentes, and I usually buy my throw pillows at Home Goods. Our bedroom furniture is from Living Spaces. Boots (my cat) was especially excited to make an appearance in this photo. :) And, no - I definitely do not wake up like this. I WISH I did, though! I do know that I am ready to get some new panties, bras, and more jammies at Soma! I love to shop online, but it was also pretty fun to go into the store. They had great customer service and I love how they wrap up your items in your shopping bag. This is not an ad for them, but I am just such a new fan! 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 
Let me know if you have any fav items you like to buy at Soma
