I love wearing casual dresses when it's so hot outside because I'm actually more comfortable. For some reason a plain dress to me can be nicer that a really cute top, then I can dress for whatever I need to! This dress is so soft and stretchy but so flattering; major plus points in my book! I'm also obsessed with these earrings from the Anna and Ava collection at Dillard's and they actually aren't too heavy! Also, PS Dillard's normally has their extra 40% off sale at the end of this week (Wed-Sat)!!!
I have today off so be looking for some new fun things coming up on Instagram and the blog this week!
I'm obsessed with yellow this season! Every item I come across online that is yellow I want to click and buy. When I came across this Who What Wear dress at Target I had to get it and then I had a vision on myself running though some yellow wildflowers, and here we are!! I ended up adding the red belt because it was just a little too big on me but I liked the pop of color. I had quite the mission to find a field like this but as I was tagging along with one of Austin's shoots, we passed it and I probably squealed a little too dramatically like I always do in the car and give drivers a quick heart attack.
All of the Who What Wear collection at Target right now is to die for! Perfectly on trend, perfectly priced! I could buy every single item if they had my size but it sells out so stinkin fast! Shoes, skirts, everything! For this shoot I pulled out my newKat Von D lip liner and used it for a full matte lip. The color is Lolita and a great darker rose color, even for spring.
Quick life update: It's finally sunny today!! Exactly what I needed for the first day of May, also how is it May already!? Friday was my senior final fashion show and was seriously a dream and my model was beyond beautiful!! Check her out on my Twitter :)

How cute is this little yellow door!?
Little life update! Sundays... the perfect day to lounge all morning, eat pancakes, watch She's the Man, and go out for coffee. This last weekend, I watched a little too much tv, but I think that is just what I needed. Last night I got to spend some sweet time with my best girlfriends that are in town for spring break and of course we ate at Table Mesa... our favorite downtown spot! Nothing like some girl talk with some incredible woman that I have gotten to see grow so much over the years :) Also, happy International Women's Day, babes support your babes!
I could wear this Free People Sacramento tee so many different ways, it might get over worn. Over a button up, with a denim skirt or shorts, with a lacey bralette, or as a pj top! Pretty much anytime, anywhere. That's how I feel about most Free People basics. You can never go wrong! These high waisted jeans from GAP are also my new go-to because some of my shirts are cropped style and I don't want to reach up and have my stomach showing! I can move freely in them and they still look good!
I hope everyone is having a great week, I'm ready for the weekend! :)
It's was 80 degrees and pretty much a never ending wind gust here in Fayetteville today. When Austin and I went to go shoot this outfit, my hair was curled in a half up bun, but it was so crazy windy that it all ended up in this crazy bun! His idea actually :) Then of course we ended the evening with some Mexican food, our favorite if we have to admit.
The sunsets have been my favorite lately, such light and rich pinks! I came across this quote one time that I always think of when I'm overcome by a sunset's beauty.
"If you can still feel romanced by a sunset, then you must be closer to your maker than you thought." ~ Beth Moore
The transition from Winter to Spring is always fun for me. I am always so eager to ditch the winter clothes and layers for dress and jumpers and shorts that I probably dive in too early. I have to make myself start with springy patterns and colors before I take off the layers because I'm such a cold body. One way I start the transition is by keeping the booties and light jackets but pairing them with a lighter weight dress or skirt. This romper is so fun with the cross cross back but is more for summer so I paired it with this BCBG overlay to keep covered up (no thanks to the wind). I love all of BCBG's pieces because I can always find something specific to my feminine style!
Thank goodness its finally Friday! Have a wonderful weekend! XO

We couldn't stop laughing because when we put the straws in, the fizz wouldn't stop overflowing! So weird!
Here is the other half from our shoot the other day with Ashton; all the reds! I loved getting professional pictures with Austin because half the time it's just one or the other of us in the picture. We made a promise to start taking more together and I can't wait to start sharing them with you all! On Valentine's Day it rained all day long. The prefect day to just stay in and be cozy, even though that didn't happen. Austin and I had a great afternoon and evening just out and about, an early movie, a quick BBQ dinner, and ended the day at the gym. Just about a perfect day for us :)
I love me some matching. We do it all the time on accident and will show up somewhere wearing basically the same tee or same exact color. This was intentional but of course so fun and cute! I wear this flannel tunic all the time because it has a little more style than the average flannel button-up. It's easy to dress up or down depending on what I am doing.
It is HARD for me to find the right size maxi dress! Either too long, too short, too wide... this one is perfect when I add the belt to it and makes me look so much taller and accentuates my waist (or else I look swallowed). I love how the slit is up the middle instead of the side because then it's way easier to walk. Shop our looks below!
Ready for the weekend! XO
I'm a sucker for some good old fashion bubble gum.
The infamous cat dress. It seems like I have had it forever but it just never gets old, pockets and all :)
I love love, I love all things Valentines, I love sharing a different type of love with all of the people in my life! My love is rooted deep for this day probably because it has been one of my Mom's favorite holidays. So, naturally, like mother like daughter right? It's sweet and girly what more could I want!? Who else remembers when we used to decorate shoe boxes in elementary school and have notes for everyone and have a full day of sweets? The BEST! I hope someday my kids will still be doing that :)
On Sunday, I had a cute Valentine's themed shoot with a sweet friend and we probably had too much fun with it! Ashton has such a creative mind and the ideas were flowing all afternoon! Check out her blog and website here! Austin and I also took some couple photos that will be spread out in today's post and the next. We had so many pictures that I thought I should split them up haha! Thank goodness pink is such a hit right now (not gonna lie I have been waiting my whole life for this ;) I could wear it every day and never get sick of it!
I love this see through midi skirt with a touch of metallic, great for church, date night, work... so much. I paired it with my favorite suede d'orsay heels and this soft pink crop top. Oh, and don't forget my go-to Kate Spade clutch! That baby is perfect for holding my essentials: phone, lipstick, and some cards or cash. All you really need right?
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day filled with sweets and flowers, your best girls or your best guy, or family and friends! Thanks for all of the love!! Give those kisses, say your appreciation, or just be there for a hug at the end of the day. But never forget to share your love everyday, not just one day a year.
