Happy Friday! I have teamed up with Jane.com and Cents of Style to take part in a #BeTheGood challenge. I am loving this company “Be The Good” it reminds me that there is still good in the world. A few months ago I was in the drive thru at Starbucks and I wanted to pay for the persons coffee behind me so I did. I also made a little note saying how God loved her. After I left Starbucks I had a great feeling in my heart just for making someones day with a cup of coffee and letting that person know that God loves them no matter what they are going through. I challenge everyone to take that leap of faith by doing or saying an encouraging word to someone, it will change your life. I would love to hear about it.

Hey ladies, I have found thee cutest bag! I love the color, size and how roomy it is. In this shoot I decided to include “What’s in the bag”. Before we start with that, I styled this darling bag with some fun prints. I love how the cheetah shoes and the checkered top look together, oh FYI that top is my husbands, I love that it’s long and looks a little loose. I also added my favorite faux leather leggings and a cozy white cardigan. This outfit is super comfy and cozy I absolutely adore it. Back to “Whats in the Bag’. What are your go to and can’t live without items that you always carry? Mine is this little green lipstick pouch. I literally need all my lipsticks because I am always on the go with photo-shoots and I just love having variety. I hate when all my lipsticks are just everywhere in my bag so I love the pouch because it holds all of them together and my bag is not a big mess. I also can’t live without my glasses and a planner. Hope you enjoyed this look and “Whats in the Bag”. See you soon.

I cannot wait for the fall weather to come already. The Denver weather is so weird, its hot one day and the next its in the 50’s, so I can’t put any of my sandals away just yet. I love how you can still wear all your summer dresses in the fall. In this shoot I styled this summer black Lacey dress from 7thStBoutique. I added a jean jacket, knee high socks, cream boots and some fun accessories. I love that this dress is so fitted. You can also dress it up with tights and some sexy heels for a date night or even a wedding. I hope you enjoy this look, can’t wait for the weekend already all I wanna do is sleep in and cuddle in bed with my boo oh and don’t forget my cup of coffee lol :) I hope you have a great weekend.

Anytime I get to spend a week at the beach I am the happiest girl in the world. I also enjoyed our short trip to Vancouver WA to see some of my family and friends. It was kinda sad saying good buy to everyone and getting back to reality but so is life. Back to the shoot. I love this yellow sweater that I scored at H&M for $5 its was a size large so I wore it as a cozy dress with some knee high boots and layered a ton of jewelry from my favorite company mkaltenbach.comI love this cozy look for fall, makes me want to order a Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks lol. Hope you enjoyed this look, until next time.

Good morning and a happy Wednesday! I’m so sad today is our last day in Maui, we had such a great time. The beaches and the views were breathtaking, God’s creation is so amazing. We have one more stop to make before heading home, we are going to visit my sister in Vancouver WA for a few days. I’m very excited to see my family and friends. When we get back I will share some photos on the blog from our trip so stay tuned for that. Back to the shoot. In this post I did a simple look of white shorts and grey tee, OMG they’re so comfy. I literally feel like I’m in pajamas and if my clothing feels like pajamas but looks this dressy then sign me up lol. I also added black strappy heels, some amazing jewelry pieces and rocked the mohawk again. I hope you enjoyed this look. See you soon.

Recently I had a few people ask how I did my hair. I didn’t have any time at all to make a tutorial :( but I found one on youtube (here) I hope that helps. A few days ago I went and got my hair done by Bree Marshall from bamhairservices.com and let me tell you, she is the sweetest and very talented. I had a lot of yellow in my hair that I wanted removed so I showed her a few photos of the hair color I wanted and she made it happen. I have never been this happy with my hair color especially with blonde. So if you are looking for a hair dresser in Denver she is your girl. Back to the shoot. I am soooo obssesed with this simple purple dress.  I styled it a fall way to show you how simple it is to transform your summer dress by just adding knee high socks and booties. I also added a green statement necklace with a fun mohawk up-do, reminds me of a City worrier. Hope you enjoyed this look. I am heading to the beach today can’t wait to share some photos of our trip.

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is going good so far. In this shoot I paired this adorable black and pink headband with a tight black and white dress. I love these combos together. I’ve been loving headbands lately, when you are having a bad hair day or you just don’t want to do anything with your hair you just add a fun headband and your look is complete. I hope you enjoyed this look.

ALL BLACK

Hope you had a great weekend. My husband and I had two birthday partys to go to so it was a busy but good one. I never wear solid black so this was a little different for me but I wanted to show you how you can make an all black outfit fun by just adding a cute bow tie. I love how classy and feminine it looks. So don’t be afraid of adding fun accesories to your simple outfits. I hope you enjoyed this look. See you soon.
