Outfit Post: Do Small Things With Great Love

Like the shirt says, "Do Small Things With Great Love." What a great phrase to apply to your life. Somethings life becomes too routine and demanding. Don't take anything for granted and make even the smallest action count. Definitely something I could work on :)

The Minted Exchange has done it again with this floral number. Seriously how awesome is this Kimono?! I love the mix of the neon floral with the black background. So fresh and perfect for summer.  PS these shorts are my new fav. I got them this weekend at Forever 21 {which I was pleasantly surprised by the length in the front and back} plus I loved the color and the distressing. You can never have too many good pairs of distressed jeans shorts ya feel me?!

Outfit Post: Golden Eagle

Lets be honest, the whole Birkenstock trend that is all the rage is either a LOVE it or HATE it type of thing...well I completely love it! I grew up seeing all my aunts wearing these and I officially bought my first pair at Nordstrom Rack this past weekend at a total discount! I couldn't pass them up. Here is how I styled them.

Do any of you feel so busy sometimes you just don't know what to do?! I have been so busy lately with work events and wedding planning, it's hard to juggle everything. It will all be worth it in the end when I get to marry the man of my dreams! :)

Spotlight Weekly Link Up: Favorite Handbag

Hi everyone!!! I am so excited to be guest hosting this weeks Spotlight Weekly Link Up with Elle {livingincolorstyle.blogspot.com} and Jacqueline {styleinstlouis.com}.

When Elle emailed me a couple weeks back, I began racking my brain about my absolute favorite handbag. I have manyyy favs but this bag from KiVARi is my go-to boho summer bag. It is so easy to throw in my wallet, phone and chap-stick and run out the door. Here is how I styled it.

Outfit Post: Summertime

When I saw this headband from Lemon's and Lace I automatically thought of summertime and sunshine. I love pairing pink and red together lately so this headband was a perfect match with my Infinite Chic blouse. I already have so many other ideas on how to wear this top. It would be super cute with untucked with skinny jeans and some fun strappy sandals.

Outfit Post: Good Friday

Hi everyone!! I hope everyone has had an awesome week! I want to apologize for being somewhat MIA on here. My photog {aka my dad haha} was on a business trip all week and got back last night so I had to bug him to snap these this morning. Jeff, who also takes the majority of my photos, was so busy this week as well... so the outfits were put on the backburner. I'm so happy I have time to do this before work today because I couldn't wait to show you some of these pieces.

If you have been following along you know my love for Gypsy Soul Collective. Well once again, I am obsessed with this skirt. It is so unique and the gorgeous ombre tie dye is definitely a must. I paired it with one of my new tees from BofG. She is the cutest thing and let me tell you, she does one heck of a job on all of her tees. Unique, fun sayings and awesome distressing makes for the perfect slouchy tee. DEF a go to for me as of late. Shop her stuff {here}

Outfit Post: Hustle

"The dream is free, the hustle is sold separately." Definitely one of my favorite quotes! Everyone can dream but to really go after what you want takes hard work and dedication!

Outfit Post: Surfboard

I feel like I need to be on a tropical island in this outfit...and I don't have a problem with it! The amazingly awesome pants are from Loloelle Boutique. Not only are they super bright and perfect for spring and summer, they are so dang comfortable! They have built in shorts to prevent them from being see-through. Definitely a must! You guys have to check out their awesome collections {here}.

Tonight after Jeff and I are going to the grand opening of a new gluten free restaurant in the area for my work. I am always looking for fun unique places to eat and how can you refuse gluten free pastries and wine? I will have to let you guys know how we like it:)
