ON SAYING “NO”

Good freaking morning. I finally have more than a minute this morning, and I am in heaven. I’ve already put in almost a normal week’s (for me) worth of hours this week, and I needed a little extra time this morning. There’s just something magical about sleeping in a little, snuggling your man and enjoying your coffee. And since I don’t usually have Saturday for that, Thursday works just fine. I love two piece sets like this one I wore...

RED OFF SHOULDER DRESS

Last night, Ben and I got in bed at 8:45, and I was so excited to get an amazing night of sleep but still wake up early enough to write this post, workout and get to work on time. We commented how maybe we’re old now because we both were reading before bed (trying new habits instead of staring at my phone, ya know?!). But YOU GUYS. I laid awake for three hours. THREE HOURS. I have no idea what my problem...

WHITE OVERALLS AND FIVE THINGS YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW

           \   \   OH hey guys. I feel like it’s been a minute. I’m usually super on it with posting three times a week, but the last few weeks have been some of my busiest yet. Friday was the first time in probably two months that Ben and I have gone out to shoot. Aka it was planned, and I did more than one outfit. Lately, time has only allowed for us to just stop to snap some photos on...

INSTAGRAM ROUND-UP

I haven’t done one of these in FOREVER. But a lot of you asked about a bunch of these items, so I thought I should put together a little post with some of my recent Instagram photos and links to the things I’m wearing in them! I don’t always have times for a full shoot when I’m heading to work or out with Ben or with friends but I still like to share my real life day to day outfits!...

HASHTAG, GOALS AND SKINNY JEANS

          We’re gonna chat about two things today. Goals and skinny jeans. One of these is important, and one is not. 😛 How many times have you seen someone comment on an Instagram photo, “Ugh goals” or “#goals” or “#bodygoals”? I don’t know why but it kind of drives me insane. I get it if you’re being funny or you just tag your friend and say that for fun, but I think that the girls posting that most...

WHITE BOHO MAXI AND BLOGGER CONFESSIONS

        Blogger confessions Part I. I was feeling so cute and boho in this dress, and then when I saw it in photos, I was like UM NO. 😛 I had originally thought to belt it to give me a waist but I thought nah, let’s just keep it breezy. (Friends, anyone??? Please tell me know you.) Anyways, yah I don’t know what kind of magic some of these girls pull when they photograph these billowy dresses, and they...

A LETTER TO MY FOLLOWERS

           WELL. I can’t believe it. I woke up to 20K on Instagram this morning! I don’t know why but that’s always a number I had as a goal. To be honest it feels like a long time coming. I know people who have been blogging the same or shorter than I have and have WAY more followers than I do. But I also know that a lot of them did things like buy followers or likes...

FIVE TIPS ON HOW TO CREATE AN ENGAGED INSTAGRAM AUDIENCE

   Alright guys. I’m not a pro or anything, but over the last few years, I’ve learned a thing or two about having an engaged audience on Instagram. Now I didn’t start out with these guidelines and set out to create an engaged audience but for me, it’s just something that has happened organically over time. And so from that, I’ve pulled a few things that I think help with creating an engaged audience on Instagram. We all want to...

SUMMER TUNIC, BLACK COFFEE AND OTHER THOUGHTS

        OH HI. So I don’t know if you guys all saw my Instagram last night, but I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what this blog is and what I want it to be. If you follow bloggers and you scroll through Instagram, almost guaranteed you’ll see the same outfits and accessories 27 times. Because the reality is if we all tryna be cute and have style, we all are going to have some of the same clothes,...

GINGHAM OFF SHOULDER TOP AND FIVE THINGS YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW

        Alright. It’s pretty much official. Over half my wardrobe is from Shein. I just feel like they always have that one thing that makes each piece just a little bit more unique. And it doesn’t cost an arm and leg. I might have spent an hour last night in between watching Friends, just scrolling through their site and favoriting things for some upcoming vacations and you know, just life. (Insert Ben laughing at me. 😛 ) I am...
