Hope you are having a great week so far. In this shoot I am wearing this amazing summer dress from WindsoreStore that I paired with a black vest. I also added a stunning triangle headband that I absolutely adore. This look is so fun, I think the headband and bracelet make the outfit pop and look more alive. You can wear this outfit to a fun night out or just to run some errands, and for the fall you can add some dark green tights with boots or booties and bam… you get two looks with just one dress. I love it! Be sure to check out WindsoreStore and littlebluegarden for more adorable things. See you soon.

Hey guys! Happy Thursday. So, fall is just around the corner so I decided to do a few photo-shoots on how to wear summer clothing for the fall. This is look number one out of three. I paired this amazing tulle skirt from www.windsorstore.com with a lace white crop top. Added a black leather jacket, a ton of amazing jewelry from mKaltenbach.com for some fun fall colors and for the outfit to pop. I also added a fun black hat and dark purple booties. Love this look so much its so girly with a punk twist. I am so in love with stacking a ton of jewelry together, it makes the outfit more alive and fun. Hope you enjoyed this look. See you soon.

We went on a hike yesterday to Hanging Lake, the hike was long but so worth it, the view was stunning. You have to check it out if you live in Denver CO or if you are just visiting. In this shoot I met up with fashion blogger Kendall from dippedinyellow.com we chatted over some coffee and talked about blogging. After that we headed over to Rustic Thread for a fun dress up and photo shoot. We had so much fun, I loved all of their pieces. This dress was my favorite because you can style it for the summer or fall, loved the loose fit and color. I paired it with a fun hat and layered some fun jewelry. Check out their website down below and stay tuned for another look from Rustic Threads. See you soon.

Hey guys! I have found the cutest one-piece swimsuit ever, I am so in love with this fun style. It’s hand made by Beverly from www.beverlyswimwear.com. I love all of her suits, they’re all so modest, fun and cute. Perfect for a day at the beach or by the pool. I wanted to go for a boho vintage style so I added this lace kimono that I absolutely adore. I also added a fun baby breath head crown and don’t forget the jesus sandals. Be sure to check out Beverly’s website for more fun swim suits. I hope you have a great weekend. I have some fun things coming up on the blog so this weekend will be a busy one for me but I am so blessed to be doing what I love, can’t wait to share with you all. Until next time.

Happy friday! Ahh, I love fridays so much it means I get to spend time with my lemon squeeze aka my husband lol. It has been raining all week here it kinda is reminding me of Vancouver. Its crazy we haven’t even had a normal summer but thats ok because the only reason why I love it so much is because of how beautiful and green everything is. My sister in-law and I drove to this field by her house and took some photos and I’m in awe of how gorgeous they came out. She is so good at what she does. I recently did a shoot in this gorgeous necklace and I can’t get over how stunning it is, so I decided to do another “way of styling it”.  The necklace is from www.etsy.com/shop/JBFreespirit she is also doing a discount of %15 off until August 31st, the code for that is “FEATHER”.  Be sure to get at least one, two or maybe even three of her amazing pieces before the discount ends. I paired the necklace with a boho off shoulder top and flair jeans I recently got for a steal at Rags Consignment. If you live in Denver be sure to check them out love everything they have right now. The awesome thing about that store is you can also sell your gently used items, how cool is that? Anyways, hope you enjoyed this look. Stay tuned for more.

Hope you had a great weekend. We went camping for a night, it was fun not having any service and just hanging out with the family. I enjoyed every minute even though I got bit by a billion mosquitoes, lol. Sunday started out with an amazing church service. We take life for granted sometimes and always say things like why can’t I have this or why is it this way or why do bad things happen? Hardly ever we sit down and say, God thank you so much for the air that I breathe and thank you that I can walk on my own two feet. Its sad to say but we all have been there. I suggest you take a step of faith this week and just talk to God like he is your best friend, no need for a fancy prayer just talk to him. Tell him what is on your heart and thank him for the everyday of life he gives you. Trust me you will see a change, just give all your problems to him he knows your heart and he will not give you more than you can handle. Anyway, back to the fashion.  I recently found the best boyfriend jeans, I had a problem with how loose they would be on me and they just never fit right. I finally tried a pair on from Madewell and completely fell in love, as soon as they touched my skin it was like love at first site lol. Loved the distressed look, color and feel. You know how jeans just get loose after you wear them for a day? Well, these don’t and thats why I’m in love. When you get a chance and you are in need for a pair I suggest you  stop by Madewell and try them on. I paired the jeans with a simple white tee, adorable  suspenders and I added some black pointy heels, a hat and this gorgeous necklace from whitehartjewellery.com . Love all of her pieces. It adds a look of simple touch to any outfit. So check out her website, you will fall in love as soon as you see everything. Hope you enjoyed this look. See you soon.

Happy Thursday!!! Hope your week is going great so far. In this shoot I had an oppurtinity to meet this wonderful gal named Chanella Leslie from notsonaked.com.au blog, she is a journalist/photographer here in Denver. It is so amazing how many people I have met through blogging and via Instagram. We grabbed a quick bite at Union station and did a fun shoot in this amazing hotel, the lighting was just perfect. We laughed, took photos and just had a great time. I found these overalls for a steal at H&M, I love them so much. They are having some amazing sales right now so hurry before everything is gone. I paired them with a loose stripped top, added some gold bracelets and cheetah booties. I hope you have a great weekend, me and my hubby are going camping with the fam bam. I am really excited to stay up by the camp fire, eat s’mores and just spend time with family away from this crazy busy thing we call life. See you soon.
