3 Happy Hour looks Paired With Black Jeans and Booties

Happy Thursday, lovelies!

Cheers to it being the weekend (almost)! I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend. I am doing a shoot over the weekend and shooting some new looks for spring, I can’t wait! It has been soooo cold lately and I can’t wait to take advantage of the warmer weather. We got 16 inches of snow on Tuesday and I felt like spring would never come. It will be around 65 degrees this weekend though so yippee to that! If any of you have had the same experience lately and are STILL wearing winter clothes, I feel for you because I’m right there with you. With that being said, I thought I would share some cute winter looks for happy hour. I hope this is the last time I will be sharing winter looks for awhile! I paired all three outfits with black jeans and booties since those are always my go-to winter accessories. I also linked all of the outfits I’m sharing so you can shop the looks. I hope you all enjoy!

XOXO,

Jonica

Exciting News

Happy Tuesday, loves!
I have some super exciting news to share with all of you! This past month has been filled with new opportunities and I could not be more excited! At the beginning of February, I went in for a job interview at the Center for Health Equity Research at Northern Arizona University (my alma mater) and got hired on the spot! I have been working there for two weeks now and although it has been challenging, it has also been very rewarding. I am so excited to be doing research and starting my career in Public Health. I am so passionate about helping others and I hope my knowledge can eliminate health disparities/create health equity for everyone. I hope to someday work for for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. I’m seriously such a nerd when it comes to infectious diseases or anything healthcare related, I could learn about it all day long. I took an epidemiology class last fall and I was so excited to go to class because I loved all of the material and loved my professor even more, she is so passionate about teaching and epidemiology. But back to the exciting news, I also met with La Fleur magazine on Monday and will be writing editorials and doing shoots for them soon! I cannot wait, the magazine is so cute and definitely my style. I will be sharing more details with all of you as soon as I know more, but I am already so excited to begin. I have also partnered with Boho Betty USA, which sells the cutest jewelry at an affordable price. If you use the code: SANDYTOESANDSALTYHAIR at check out, you will also receive another 20% off your entire purchase. I am also partnering with JORD Wood Watches, which you have to check out because they are the cutest! I will be promoting their brand on social media through Instagram, Pinterest, and my blog. Finally, my boyfriend and I have been house shopping and are looking to purchase our first home and completely renovate it. I will keep all of you updated with the process, I’m so excited! I just want to thank all of you for the continued support since starting this blogging journey. I just reached my first 1k on Instagram and I am so excited to continue blogging and posting. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or things you want to see on my blog or Instagram, I am always looking for new ideas!

XOXO, Jonica

Spring Looks Under $60

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I hope you are all having an exciting or relaxing weekend! Since we are getting a huge rain/storm storm (again, ugh), I thought I would share my favorite looks for spring and they are all under $60!! I seriously want to buy everything I’ve linked to this post, especially since I’m craving warm weather. I thought it would be a perfect time to share all of these amazing finds with all of you since March is upon us. Whether you are going to the Caribbean, hanging out by the pool, or spending a casual day outside, all of these outfits and accessories are perfect for you! Some highlights of this post are the Steve Madden wedges, which are on sale for $60 and look exactly like the desired Marc Fisher wedges (those are $160). The St. Tropez self tanner is my all time favorite for spring since I am in that awkward super pale stage and don’t want to strut a bikini without a little bit of a tan. It’s my go-to and doesn’t leave any lines around your palms/feet and the best part is, it is such a natural looking tan (as in you won’t be orange, yay!!). Also, I’m such a fan of all the new Baublebar earrings, they are perfect for spring, especially if you’re going on a tropical vacation. The new colors are so vibrant and make the perfect accessory for every outfit! Finally, I’m such a fan of floral rompers for spring. Rompers in general are always my go-to outfit and adding a floral print to a romper makes them ten times better than they already are. I linked some really cute options for floral printed rompers and like everything else in this post, they are under $60. I hope you all enjoy and happy weekend!

3 Ways to Wear Lace Up Tops

Happy Thursday!

It’s almost the weekend (yay)!! This weekend I plan on catching up with work, organizing closets, and planning some upcoming shoots. It’s about that time of year for my annual spring cleaning and this weekend will be the perfect weekend for it since we are getting more rain and cold weather, ughhh. Today I will be sharing three ways to style and wear lace up tops, since they are so popular right now. Lace up tops are always my go to top when I go out and can be worn during many different occasions. I provided links to the outfits so you can shop the looks for yourself!

XOXO,

Craving Spring

Happy Tuesday, loves!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I enjoyed my weekend, despite the huge rain storm we got! I actually did not mind the rain because I was stuck inside working all weekend and would’ve been so upset if I couldn’t be outside to enjoy the nice weather, so it was a win for me! Today I will be sharing a shoot I did last April since I am craving spring weather so badly! I only wore two looks for this shoot, but love both outfits. The first look I used was a simple and light sweater from Free People with jeans, Coach booties, and a bralette. This look is perfect for spring because the sweater is so light/airy and is such a fun color. My second look is a gorgeous pastel pink dress from Francesca’s, which I paired with black Tory Burch sandals. I love this dress and actually wore it for Easter last year since it is such a perfect color for spring. I have provided links to shop similar looks and hopefully you can create your own perfect look for spring!

XOXO,

Jonica
