{Weekend Wears} Graphic Tee & Lace

What a super fast weekend we just had!'s never long enough right?!? My weekend went a little something like this---Friday night date wouldn't start..Saturday Brunch with the girls and a Stella & Dot Party (more on that later)...flat tire....pouring rain for hours...Sunday golf with Dad...and the weekend is over and here I am back at Monday. Good thing it's a short week right! :)

I styled my Home T a little differently over the weekend by pairing it with a pink lace skirt. Take a look back at how I wore it before {here}
It kind of reminds me a little bit of a Miranda Lambert look :) All I'm missing is a cute pair of boots!

I love a comfy tee paired with a skirt. It is a combination I like to wear often because it is a simple way to dress up a tee or dress down a skirt and also be comfortable when it's so hot outside. I don't really wear shorts very often, so a skirt is a go-to for me in the summer time. 

Hope you had a great weekend! What is your go to weekend look???

Cobalt & Floral

Happy Summer!!! I spent the first weekend of summer hanging out with my family and celebrating my Mom's birthday! We had the best time hanging out by the pool and cooking out together as a family. It was a much needed and perfect layed back weekend, which for some odd reason I'm having a hard time recovering from. Doesn't it seem like as soon as you get a little lazy it's so hard to get back into the swing of things!?!

I picked up this cute and comfy cotton dress at Target over the weekend on their buy one get one 50% off dress sale! Of course, I spotted it right away because of the beautiful cobalt blue I've been wearing so much lately. I decided to pair it with this kimono cover up for a fun pop of floral and my monogrammed pink clutch.

Today I am linking up with the these pretty ladies for the Trend Spin Linkup featuring Florals!


How did you spend your first weekend of Summer?

{Outfit Post} Blue Summer

Have you ever gone through a phase when you love to wear a certain color?  You know, like Kim in her white phase and Adele in black? That has been me lately in all shades of blue! I picked up this cute romper at Loft a few weeks back and it has been a go-to for those mornings when I'm running a little behind and need something quick to put on for work. Its super easy to wear and is so comfy. The only downside is it's linen which isn't my favorite, but the comfort and cool fabric makes it worth it. 

So far this summer, this has been the only romper that I have found that I have really liked. I am on the hunt for a couple more! They are so cute and it's a good switch up from the usual dresses I wear all summer.

If you happen to find some cute rompers anywhere, let me know! I'd love some suggestions on where to look :)

I started my blog a little over two years ago, which makes me somewhat of a baby in the blogging world. I have been very lucky to have had so many great experiences, I've met some amazing bloggers and designers, and had some of the best opportunities ever in the time I've been writing my blog. Even with all the fun things that have come along , it can be hard to find my voice and not compare myself to other bloggers. I sometimes have to remind myself that I have my own unique style and love for fashion that is not always going to be like everyone else. Truthfully, that is the beauty of it all isn't it? 

{Each of us have our own individual style and view of the world!}

Maya from Charmingly Styled launched an amazing campaign called "Real Blogger Beauty"'s the truth behind it all...that we are NOT always perfect! Of course, we love to have beautiful pictures on our blogs and instagram feeds but, honestly it's not always sparkly macaroons, blogger meetups, and sunshiny days full of outfit selfies. We are all real people and most of us have full time jobs, school, and families. For me, it has been a struggle to maintain it all at times. Sometimes I am involved in too much and have found myself recently cutting back on a couple things to truly focus on what I want. It's hard not to always attend every fashion event or meetup but sometimes you have to step back to refocus.

The comparison game is also something I have fallen victim to several times. I know so many amazing bloggers and I am so inspired by so many of them that sometimes the doubt fills my head and it can be a really hard thing to get past. I don't always get to post to my blog as often as other bloggers and I don't have as many followers or comments and it can really consume me if I let it. I've learned recently that I sometimes need to "Unplug" myself for awhile-- turn off the phone, give myself a break from social media, and let myself just breathe for a minute.

I blog about fashion because I love it and I want to inspire others. That is truly my driving force behind my blog.  I feel like it has tested me, taken me out of my comfort zone at times, and also taught me that I have to be confident in who I am. I think I sometimes also need to give myself credit for my accomplishments and feel content with were I am in the process. 

Thank you Maya for bringing so many bloggers together today to support one another! It's very refreshing to see everyone speak so openly about the struggles of real life.

First Fridays {8183 Pop Up Shop}

This past weekend I attended First Fridays at the Crossroads Art District. Every first Friday of the month the streets of the Crossroads come alive with vendors, dancers, artists, food trucks, open houses, and Pop Up Shops! It is so fun to check out the art work and open gallery spaces! This past Friday night some of my favorite KC small businesses participated in a Pop Up Shop at the 8183 Photo Studio. I was so excited to check out Hello Cheeseburger, Sandlot Goods, Lily Dawson Designs, Ocean & Sea, Happy Habitat, and Our Sassy Pantry! I love supporting Kansas City businesses and always love to see what new things other people are working on. 

Some of my Blogger pals Alissa {The Adored Life}, Kari {This, too}, and Jessica {26 and Not Counting}

I loved these long necklaces from Hello Cheeseburger and the delicate gold necklaces are always great for layering. Hello Cheeseburger is one of my favorite places to get jewelry because it's always fun, colorful, and unique.

I knew I had to get one of these fun shirts by Ocean & Sea as soon as I saw them! I went with the LA KC NY Heart tee. 

Sandlot has the most beautiful leather products! I was eyeing a small wristlet that might have to be a near future purchase.

In love with the beautiful sparkly pieces by Lily Dawson! I bought a pair of her earrings and they are gorgeous.

If you ever get a chance to check out First Fridays down in the Crossroads you should definitely do it! It's a lot of fun and a great way to spend a Friday night! There is always something new to see or a new food truck to check out!

{Outfit Post} Summer Style

Summer is here! The weather has been hot and humid around here and I have been loving it! Nothing has been in my wardrobe more lately than lace, so when I saw this cute Lou & Grey skirt at the Loft sale over the weekend I had to scoop it up! I've been drawn to light easy fabrics and fun skirts for summer. I love adding a pop to a simple outfit with fun & bright accessories!

Sunnies, bangle bracelets, and earrings are definitely my go to pieces for summer! A colored bag can add a little pizzazz to a simple outfit!
