Stripe it Lucky: Moto Jacket + Tee + Denim [& a Bracelet Giveaway!]

Tuesday, April 14, 2015


Hey there!  Do you have any jewelry that is so super special that you feel like you can only wear it to the fanciest of occasions?  I have a few diamond pieces that I basically only bust out for weddings, work events, and the like.  Then I realized that's kind of silly, because sometimes those sparkliest of pieces can be the prettiest with a casual outfit!

Therefore, when Anjolee sent me the darling cubic zirconia tennis bracelet that I am wearing (and giving away!!) in today's post, I decided to take a little risk and pair the shine with a low-key look.  How will you style it, if you win?  [Be sure to enter for your chance to score yourself this shiny, new, CZ bracelet at the end of this post!]

What have you been up to lately?  This past weekend, Matt and I took a road trip down to Mexico for a quick mini vacation with some good friends.  It was so relaxing, just sunbathing on the beach, with a fruity drink in hand, and no worries whatsoever.  Ahhh, sweet Spring.

Happy Thursday!  We are so close to the weekend.  I can almost taste it.  I am reeeal ready to get some errands done that have been on my "to do" list for far, far too long.  Matt and I are still working on the house, but we are so close to finally having it just how we want it.  I can't wait to throw a housewarming party so our friends and family can see the finished product -- and to share it with you all too, of course!

Spring Has Sprung: Sweatshirt + Cutoff Shorts + Slip-Ons

Saturday, March 21, 2015


Hey there!  This is my first post written since I turned yet another year older.  Thursday was my birthday, and I turned the ripe, old age of 26.  Remember when you were in grade school and you had teachers who were 26?  Yeah... You totally thought they were super old.  Don't deny it.  I mean, I'm pretty sure we all thought anything over 17 was ancient. Thankfully, I still feel relatively young (despite the creaking joints and poppin' bones that are starting to occur more and more these days).  Plus, with each passing year, life just keeps getting peachier and peachier, ya know what I'm sayin'?

I'm forever grateful for all of the opportunities that my 25th year of life brought me.  Just in the last year, we adopted Kingsley & Ollie into our family, took our trip to Italy and Greece, made the most amazing friends here in Phoenix, my sister & niece were in AZ for the past few months... I could go on listing for what seems like an eternity.  25 really is quite a year to top... but I have faith that 26 can do it ;)



Creamsicle: Sweater + Trousers + Wedges

Sunday, March 15, 2015


Hi there!  How are ya?  The temperature in Phoenix really started climbing upwards this week (up to 90 degrees already...?!?!), which makes me a little sad.  I feel like it's way too soon to be this hot this early.  I want a few more weeks of sweater weather, ya know?  The day I wore this outfit in today's post, it started out pretty chilly in the morning, but by the time I got home from work, a sweater and long pants were far from weather-appropriate.  That's what happens here in the desert though.  Ah, Phoenix, I love ya in the winter... I fear ya in the summer.
