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 Wednesday! In this shoot I styled this amazing envelope white skirt from Windsor  that I am in love with. I paired it with a long sleeve blue blouse, stunning headband from jolieusa.com and some black knee high socks with boots for a fall look. I love how simple but elegant this look is. Hope you have a fabulous day.

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.

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.

IMG_2535  IMG_2539 IMG_2540 IMG_2544 IMG_2546 IMG_2548 IMG_2552 IMG_2553 IMG_2554Hey guys! Hope your weekend was great. Mine was super busy but a lot of fun. 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.
