Sometimes you just find a dress that makes you weak in the knees because you love it so much. Appropriately named the 'Free Fallin' dress', you'll find it ideal for dressing up or down with extreme ease! Oh and trust me, it's even lovelier in person. As you look closer, you'll see the subtle detailing, all perfectly placed. Little additions like the neon patterned neckline and subtle criss cross straps make it so much more than just another white dress.
Trust me, you don't want to miss this one!
Its the age old question... Which do you prefer?
Silver? or Gold?
Who says you have to choose?
I personally don't think we live in a day and age where we must select one or the other. But lets be real, my wedding ring is definitely silver. So, I guess I did choose a little. Ha!
My gold flats are perfect for when I'm feeling a little edgy. I'll be very honest, those spikes are pretty sharp. Don't mess with me when I'm wearing those bad boys! My silver Tom's on the other hand make me feel like Cinderella just enjoying a casual day. Tom's have always been a favorite of mine. I've always been so impressed at their outreach and advocacy for those in need. Go look in your closet. Start counting your shoes, and stop!...

Ohhhh. My. Gawwwwd. (Janice from Friends anyone?)
Can you believe its already August? This year is flying by. Lex is back to school next week...but didn't summer break just start?!
Summer vacation seems shorter every year, guess that's that whole "adulting" thing right? But, we cherish vacation time and decided to end our summer with a bang!
To kick off August, we have decided to surprise you all with our first month-long style challenge.
There is even a fun giveaway in it for you!
I never thought I would fall into the Pom trend, but let's be real, who am I kidding? Lately I've been obsessing over everyone's sandals and heels with the Pom accents, probably to avoid all the adorable straw clutches I've seen....but really they're just so summery I couldn't deny them.
I found these Big Buddha sandals on sale for $3 at Walmart! I was perusing through the shoe section to realize, hello, Walmart actually had some cute summer sandals, and most were on sale! I linked this exact pair and a few others (and more expensive) below!
I can tell I'm ready for fall by the outfits I choose sometimes. I'm loving the olives and darks right now and in Arizona, that's not necessarily the best choice! These extra long tees are only $10 from H&M and are some of my favorites, so comfy and can worn as a dress with an extender, can be knotted up, or tucked in for so many versatile looks. This new denim skirt from Lizard Thicket is slowly become a new fave, and of course will be perfect for fall as well! Check out that read more tab to see how I styled this plus soooo many options for my look alike shoes (seriously so similar to the JCrew!) that I got for BOGO at Payless.
The older I get, the more I realize that most dresses are too short or too tight, oh man did I just age in that sentence! Obviously I've shifted to shop at different stores, but there are still some super cute items in my closet that I just can't let go of! Instead of tossing them (or donating like I probably should....) I keep them around so I can mix them up. This dress is adorable, but my main issue is that it is so sheer! Here's how I switched it up!
When life gives you lemons, you wear them! It's getting hot here in the desert, and quickly. Today is a rare exception, hello 70 degrees and beautiful. Certainly it's a nice refreshing treat when we are typically beginning our summer-long heat wave. Citrus trees thrive around here, so why not add them to your wardrobe right?
Booties are everywhere right now and I couldn't be happier! I am so in love with all of the styles out there right now with the intricate cuts and designs, I just want them all! They're so versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. I tend to love wearing booties to dress up a basic outfit like my destroyed denims and a graphic tee, but I also like rocking a pair with a cute dress as well (perfect for spring or fall).
I just love a fun print, sometimes a subtle pop is all your outfit needs. I tend to plan my outfits starting with my shoes. I am a shoes girl through-and-through. Just ask my husband, they're all proudly on display in our closet. By picking my shoes first, I find that I actually be sure to wear them all. I've had these shoes for quite a while and sadly, they had never been worn! Oh my goodness, these babies more than deserved some time out of the house. I mean, just look at them!
