Boots and Blue Jeans


Yesterday while I was lounging in bed, watching the Today Show, the news anchor declared "Mom jeans are back!" 

Puzzled, and intrigued, I tuned in. Apparently a pair of jeans that are high-waisted and are not considered "skinny" are, in fact, mom jeans. And I actually happened to already own a few pairs! 

Today I'm teaming up with ThredUP, that largest online consignment and thrift store, to show you how you too can style "mom" jeans, while also rocking denim on denim.

If You're Going to San Francisco, Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair


This post is certainly long overdue! I mean, when you have over 1,000 pictures to sort and narrow down to a handful of favorites, how could it not be!?

This week I'll be sharing a look into all three parts of our recent trip to Northern California. I'll be talking all about how we spent a long weekend in San Francisco, what we did, what we ate and pretty pictures of what we saw. 

Let's just say that today's post is a travel guide how to see the most of the city in just 3 days!

Girls in White Dresses & Books to Read


Happy Saturday, ya'll!  There's nothing better than a casual (and comfy) white dress that's fit for every day. 

Oh, and a pair of wedges that are comfortable enough to wear for 12+ hours!  I'm all about being comfy and chic! Couldn't you tell? 

I'm sharing deets on this look & a roundup of a few books I'm currently loving (and wanting to read) so scroll on down yall!

Transforming Skincare with La Prairie


Today I’m talking all about La Prairie’s Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream. It’s a sun protection, skincare and color all in one! With SPF 30 to boot!


If you told me in high school that one day I’d “grow up” and be obsessed with makeup, so much so that I felt knowledgeable enough to review it, I would have been shocked!

Maybe because all I wore in high school was a dash of blush and a swipe of mascara. If only that high-school skin could last forever! Thankfully, there’s such a thing as Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream (kind of like foundation) to answer all of our skincare woes. Phew!

Let me tell you why I’m loving it ….

Walk This Way


One of mine and Patrick's favorite things to do lately is to go on walks around our neighborhood as soon as we get home from work.  Comfortable shoes are a must when exploring, so I switch out my heels for breathable & comfortable flats. 

Today I'm talking all about how these memory foam flip flops from Dansko make for the most PERFECT of walking shoes imaginable.

Red, White & Blue Maxi - Memorial Day Style


Memorial Day Weekend is only two weeks away! Do you have your red, white & blue look planned yet!?

It's not like it's 4th of July or anything (a day where you MUST don your patriotic pride) but it's always fun to sport Old Glory's colors while munching on BBQ & corn on the cob, am I right?

Today I'm talking about this red, white & blue maxi, our plans for Memorial Day & my latest obsession with crown braids.

This "groundbreaking" trend just so happens to be one of my favorites! So today I'm talking allll about this red Paper Crown floral maxi dress.
