Happy Friday!!

The week is over and it’s time to bring on the weekend, woo hoo! Does anyone have fun plans for the weekend? I am looking forward to just relaxing in our new apartment and watching football all weekend! The leaves are already starting to change here, which is making me so excited for fall. I love fall weather and everything else fall has to offer.

Today I am sharing the cutest outfit from Southern Tease Boutique. If you know me, you know I am all about the ruffles. Whenever someone mentions the word ruffles, I know I will absolutely love it. I love the style of this ruffled top and how it looks on. The white jeans are also so cute and they are VERY comfy. They are stretchy and flattering (my kind of jeans). For those of you wondering, I still wear white jeans during fall because the white pant rule doesn’t exist anymore, in my opinion. I have so many fall outfits that look so cute with ripped, white jeans, like the ones I am wearing.

This outfit is perfect for a day out with friends or date night. I paired this outfit with my favorite booties to give it more of a fall feel. If you live in a warmer state, this outfit would look cute with wedges or sandals as well. I also can’t wait to pair this outfit with my favorite over the knee boots and riding boots.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

We are officially halfway through the week, yay! This past week has been absolutely insane due to moving. We are all moved in though and I absolutely LOVE our new place! Stay tuned, I’ll be doing an apartment reveal soon. Also, thank you for all being so patient with me, I’ve been a little MIA because of work and the move, but now that I’m back into my groove, I’ll be blogging a lot more!

Today I’m sharing the most amazing necklaces from LaceysLayers. Lacey is the owner and creator of all of the jewelry she sells and runs her own boho chic inspired jewelry line on Etsy. Right when Lacey reached out to me about collaborating, I searched her website and fell in love with all of her amazing jewelry. First off, Lacey is so sweet and fun to work with, she’s also a fellow AZ girl! Next, I love the length of both necklaces and layered them to wear together. The quality of the necklaces is amazing and I love the sterling silver. If you are a fan of gold jewelry, she also sells many gold pieces as well. Go check out Lacey’s Etsy shop, you won’t be disappointed!

Happy Saturday!

If you follow me on social media, you are well aware I was in Chicago last week because I posted an abundance of pictures during my time in the Windy City. We had such an amazing time exploring everything Chicago has to offer and probably gained five pounds along the way. The food in Chicago is unbelievably good, so good I always had room for more. We were there for five days and I definitely could have stayed longer. Today I will be sharing my travel guide to Chicago, including everything we did while we were there and where we ate!

Day 1:

We spent our first morning in Chicago going to Goddess & the Baker, which is an amazing breakfast, coffee, and pastry shop in Chicago. I got a breakfast sandwich with a vanilla latte and it did not disappoint. We then walked through the city and took the Red Line train to Wrigleyville. We then saw the Cubs play the Braves and had so much fun sitting in the bleacher section. I love the fans at Wrigley Field because they get so into the game and make the atmosphere a fun place to be. The Cubs beat the Braves, yay! To finish the day, we ate at Gino’s East and had deep dish Chicago pizza, so yummy!

Day 2:

We hit up Glazed and Infused donuts before making our way to the suburbs for my cousin’s wedding. Her and her husband had the most beautiful wedding, I wish I took more pictures of the venue to show you all how beautiful it was.

Day 3:

We made our way back into the city early the next morning to enjoy a full day in Chicago. We started our day at Hash House A Go Go, which has the most unreal breakfast platters. I got the chicken and waffles, which as you can see, was bigger than my face. It was absolutely delicious though. After our huge breakfast, We decided to walk along Lake Shore Drive next to Lake Michigan to burn off all of the food we ate. They were hosting a pro beach volleyball tournament so we got to see the venue and everything going on for the tournament. It was a beautiful day at Lake Michigan, everyone was swimming in the lake and tanning on the beach. We then made our way to The Hampton Social to drink frosé and take pictures in front of the rosé all day sign! To wrap up the night, we had a light dinner and all picked at cheese boards from our hotel.

Day 4:

We woke up and went back to Goddess & the Baker one last time. We then shopped around Michigan Avenue, bought caramel/cheddar popcorn at Garrett’s, and went on an boat tour on the Chicago River. We took the architectural boat tour with Shoreline Boat Tours and we highly recommend using them if you take a boat tour in Chicago. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and allowed us to ask questions. The boat tour was the highlight of my trip and I would do it again in a heartbeat. For our last night in Chicago, we went to the Londonhouse rooftop bar (which is where we stayed during our time in Chicago) and enjoyed the most beautiful views of the Chicago river and all of the skyscrapers. We then went to Cindy’s Rooftop and enjoyed the views of Millenium Park and the bean, along with views of Lake Michigan. Afterwards, we had dinner and drank wine on the Chicago Riverwalk and watched the boats go by. If you get the chance, City Winery is a wonderful place to relax, eat dinner, and enjoy a glass of wine by the river.

Day 5:

It was difficult to say goodbye to Chicago after all of the wonderful food we ate and amazing places we saw. It was so nice to spend time with my family that I hadn’t seen for awhile and enjoy time with my parents and boyfriend. We all highly recommend staying at the Londonhouse next time you visit Chicago. We had the most spectacular service, amazing views, and beautiful rooms while we were there. We couldn’t leave the city without stopping by Stan’s Donuts on our way out. We all got a specialty donut and waved goodbye to the Windy City.

All of the outfits I wore in Chicago can be shopped under the ‘Shop Instagram’ tab on my blog!

Till next time, Chi-town.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I am in Phoenix and getting ready to head to Chicago later today for a vacation! My cousin is getting married over the weekend and we are all so excited to be apart of her and her husband’s special day. I absolutely love Chicago and can’t wait to explore the city! If you have any recommendations, please comment them below! I will be posting all of my trip details next week on the blog, so stay tuned.

Today I am sharing pictures from the sunflower fields we explored last week. Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers and they happen to grow wildly in Flagstaff, which I absolutely love! I always look forward to this time of year when the sunflowers come back and flood the sides of the streets with bright yellow. Sunflowers always make me feel bright and cheery, which is always needed before we start to enter the cooler, darker months. If you live in Arizona, you definitely need to come see the wildflowers in Flagstaff during August, you won’t be disappointed!

I am wearing my go-to Vince Camuto booties from the Nordstrom Sale, my favorite American Eagle jeans, a beige cardigan from Marshall’s, and my favorite lace cami from the Nordstrom Sale. All of these pieces are perfect for fall and so affordable! You can recreate this look my shopping the outfit at the end of the post.

Happy (almost) September!

Cool weather is on it’s way, unless you’re like me and live in Arizona… then it might not be on it’s way yet. At least I live in Northern Arizona where it’s much cooler than Phoenix! I have always loved fall because I’m a huge fan of football, pumpkin spice everything, and oversized sweaters/scarves. Today I am sharing my favorite picks for the upcoming season and everything is either on sale or very affordable. You can shop everything below by simply clicking on the image where you will then be redirected to a page to shop the item(s). I hope you enjoy!
