The 4th of July is around the corner and what better time to pull out my favorite blue and white stripe skirt. Earlier this Spring, Tuckernuck launched their own collection and I have been wearing this skirt on repeat since May! It pairs perfectly with a basic white tee, a wide stripe shirt, or a crop sweater for chillier days. Add a few red accessories and you are all set for the holiday (without screaming firework!) I love the idea of mixing prints, florals and stripes so your outfit doesn’t scream flag swimsuit from Old Navy circa 2000. lol.Read more
Friday marked the official start to summer and we are sure feeling the heat here in Texas. Since we will be spending most of the summer in town, I plan on spending the weekends in the pool (with a huge sun hat (or maybe a visor, thoughts? and lots of sunscreen––a new favorite!) and wearing all the breezy sundresses for late night dinners with friends.
There is something special about summer nights. Maybe, it’s the long days when the sun doesn’t disappear until 9pm or everyone’s relaxed attitudes due to the increase in Vitamin D. Whatever it may be, summer has always been my favorite season.Read more
We are little over halfway through June and I can’t believe how quickly this year is flying by. After taking some time off to reflect on this space, I finally have a clear vision again.
For the first time, after 9 years of blogging, I was feeling the burnt out and I needed a little break. I didn’t know it would last this long, but I am glad I took the time and really focused on what I wanted. I spent more time with friends, my husband and focused on quality time instead of trying to capture the moment. Did I miss it? At first, totally! But as the weeks went on, it was nice to just live my life and not feel the need to post an Instastory on my daily walk with the pups. This being said, capturing beautiful moments makes me happy and I am ready to get back to it. I missed my community here, my conversations on Instagram with friends, and creating just for myself. In all honesty, the last few months all of my creativity was being pulled into my other job (that I should mention I am absolutely LOVING!). My cup has been overflowing creating work for other people instead of myself and I was totally content until I realized I was missing a little piece of myself––this space that I have nurtured for the last nine years.Read more
