Hi everyone!!! Hope you had an amazing weekend. Mine was great but went by too fast as always. My hubby and I got invited to go boating with some friends, the weather was perfect and we had a blast. I love summer so much I’m so sad its almost over. In this shoot I teamed up with this doll face Cheeia Xiong from notesbycheeia.blogspot.com she is also a fashion blogger from Southern California so check her cute style out. We decided to do a fun lace dress theme so I paired the cream lace dress with a fun brown hat and some black booties for a vintage touch. These amazing photos were taken by her sister Doua I adore these girls so much. The time flew by so fast. Hope you enjoyed these two fun styles. See you soon.

Hey, happy Friday!!! I want to thank everyone who came out and supported me last night at  Madewell event. I cannot thank you enough for all of your support and love. I had an absolute blast. In this shoot I am wearing this amazing jumper from Stitch Boutique that I absolutely love. I paired it with this gorgeous hand made necklace from Jewelry By Free Spirit shipped all the way from Australia. I wore this look to the mall the other day and I literally got 10 compliments on this jumper and necklace. I love these two pieces together, its sophisticated with a bit of boho. Its perfect for a date night or just a fun look for a day to day outfit. Have a great weekend see you soon.

Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a great weekend. In this shoot I am rocking my absolutely favorite tee right now. My sweet blogger friend Christine Bennett from www.moxiebennett.blogspot.com got it for me and I am in love with it. I love the loose fit and the fun statement on the tee. I paired it with some fun pom pom shorts from Stitch Boutique. This whole outfit is so comfy it literally feels like I am wearing pajamas and its super cute. I added some brown booties, brown hat and a fun necklace. Hope you enjoyed this look. See you soon. If you read the last post about Madewell I cannot wait to see you there.

Hello, yay its the weekend! What are everybody’s plans? I would love to hear about them. I have nothing going on so it will be relaxing. Sometimes weekends like these are my favorite, sleeping in and just enjoying it with my husband. Anyway in this shoot I am wearing these amazing jean overalls. I am in love, I have been looking for a pair that fits me perfect and I think I  just found them. I love the style, the wash and just the way they feel on my skin. I styled these overalls two ways, one is a casual day to day look and the second is a dressy night out look, just to show you how adorable these overalls are. I paired the causal look with a button up striped baseball tee and threw on some bright orange nike shoes. I love the orange shoes and the striped tee together it just makes the whole outfit pop. For the dressy look I paired a black crop top, blue earrings and some simple beige stud heels for a fancy yet fierce look. If you are in Denver be sure to stop by Stitch Boutique. They are working on there website right now so that should be up soon so be patient. See you soon.

Hey I hope everyone had an great 4th of July. Mine was very interesting but fun, we got invited to go boating with some friends. The weather was perfect so we decided to go but as soon as we got on the lake the clouds rolled in and it started hailing really hard, so we ended up going home after a few minutes on the lake. We sat around for about an hour at home, the weather cleared up so we decided to try the boating thing again. As soon as we got to the lake the second time it started hailing again, so we called it quits and just ended up getting some coffee and going home for a movie. In spite of all the hail we had a blast. Back to the blog. I recently had some awesome girls from studio9720.com Merida and Kelsey here in Denver come over and raid my closet. It was a blast. Merida went through my closet and picked out four fun outfits  while Kelsey took the photos of me and our little condo. I loved the way Merida put together the outfits, they were so me. These girls were a blast, I could not stop laughing. Kelsey and Merida were halaroius with all of their jokes. The photos came out amazing. Check out both of their blogs for more fun closet raids. If you live in Denver be sure to email them. Hope you enjoyed a little sneak peak of my closet/condo. See you soon.
