5 Years

Friday the 13th!  April the 13th is the day me and Greg like to call our wedding anniversary.  We got married at the courthouse on March 21, 2013 but we got all dressed up and celebrated on April 13, 2013.  It is hard to believe it has been 5 years.  I will admit even after 5 years I still get butterflies and miss him when he is gone.  Like this week when he has been gone 10 days for work.  I hope to never lose that feeling with Greg.

My past is not perfect but I must have done something right to have Greg in my life.  This was both of ours 2nd marriage and although the 1st time didn’t work out for us someone knew we were meant to be together.  And I thank God every day that he put Greg in my life.  He is the best Instagram husband a girl could ask for.  LOL.  But he is more than that!  He has always been my biggest supporter and is always there with encouraging words when I am feeling defeated.  And not to mention he is the best step dad to my 2 boys.  My youngest thinks he is the best hide and seeker there is!  I love watching them bond and know that they will look up to him as they get older.

So Greg cheers to us and many more years of happiness and butterflies – I love you with all that I have.  I can’t wait to celebrate in Scottsdale with you next week.

I gathered up some of my favorite pictures of us over the last 5 years.  Enjoy!



Cactus Shirt

I guess my upcoming trip to Scottsdale has cactus on my brain so I picked up this cute cactus print button down a few weeks ago.  But I have been seeing cactus print on lots of things so I guess it is the print for spring.

My go to spring look seems to be button ups, shorts and sneakers. But it is such a great look to where I feel like I am put together but also very comfortable.  Because I wear business clothes during the week my go to weekend looks are all about casual and comfort, but I still want to look presentable in public.  So again I am pairing this cute printed button up with my denim shorts and some slip on sneakers.  This button up is very soft and has some length to it so it could also work over a swimsuit for a pool cover up as well.  I am wearing a small (sized up one) and it is loose on me so it you want a more fitted look you could get your normal size.

Floral Cold Shoulder Dress

Dress / Purse / Shoes / Sunglasses / Necklace (similar)

Adding this fun floral dress to my spring/summer wardrobe because I usually don’t buy floral print.  Time to mix up stuff in my closet for once.  The fit of this dress is very flattering and when I first tried it on I didn’t realize it was a cold shoulder (oops).  It didn’t look bad and who knows I may wear it like that in the future.  It is a lightweight material and will be perfect for those hot summer days.  You could dress it up with some heels if you have a wedding to attend.  Or some flat sandals for a more casual event.  I am wearing a small for reference because I think this dress is considered a junior sizing.

Target Opalhouse

So I am not one to usually show home decor but OMG – the new stuff from Target Opalhouse is so cute!  Some stuff is a little too colorful for me, I am more a muted/neutral person when it comes to my home decor.  My bedding is black and white and I found lots of cute items I wanted to add to my bedroom.  And the prices are really not too bad.  I think this Opalhouse collection from Target is really good!

Striped Cap Sleeve + White Denim

Top / Jeans / Wedges / Bag / Sunglasses (similar) / Necklace

This weekend I was supposed to be in Dallas to visit my parents for a long overdue visit, it has been a few months since I have been home.  But bad weather delayed it until next week.  So now I am just enjoying some me time at home all my boys are away this weekend.

Now if you’ve followed me since I started my blog you know I love my white denim all year round but I tend to break them out a lot more in the spring and summer.  I am up to 3 pair right now and I love to alternate each of them out.

Today I am sharing a very friendly budget white denim option with you and a top with cap sleeves from the same retailer.  This pair of white denim only cost me $9.99, yes that is right under $10!  I was shocked at first and thought for sure they were mismarked.  But for $10 I had to try them on, and honestly I thought I would hate them.  I took a couple of size options with me because I wasn’t sure how they would fit.  I ended up liking them and went with one size up from my normal jean size.  Now they are white (fake packets in the front) and so they are a little see through.  I just wear my nude underwear and they are fine.  I am actually very pleased with this $10 find.  And my cap sleeve top comes in 4 colors, 2 striped options and 2 solids.  It is very lightweight and only $12.99.  I am wearing a small for reference.

Throw on your favorite wedges, sneakers or flat sandals and what a great look for under $25!




Tie Front Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit / Wedges / Purse /Necklace / Sunglasses (similar)

Anyone else loving the color olive green?  I am finding myself drawn to it when I go shopping now.  I have a little bit of everything in this color – tops, dresses, jeans, shoes and now a jumpsuit.

When I put this jumpsuit on I felt like I was wearing pajamas it was so comfortable.  I loved the tie feature at the waist, I felt like that added a little something and made it almost look like two pieces.  And I will note that since it does have that feature it might show a little skin depending on how you tie it.  But I had no trouble with that.  I haven’t worn much in this brand so I wasn’t sure on the sizing.  I am usually a XS/S just depending on the brand.  I ended up getting the small in this jumpsuit just because I had a little extra room in the hips and that is what I preferred.  Now it you look at the picture of this jumpsuit online I don’t think that it looks as good as it does in person.  Not sure what happen with that transition but it is very cute on.  I just wish they had more color options so I could wear it more without people wondering if I own any other clothes.

I have paired this with my favorite wedges but it also looks very cute with flats.  And you could even throw on a denim jacket if it gets cool.  So many options with this jumpsuit and it will get lots of wear through summer, maybe even into fall.

Sleeveless Ruffle Midi Dress

Dress / Denim Jacket / Wedges / Purse / Sunglasses (similar) / Necklace (similar)

A fresh new week and month.  Hard to believe April is already here.  I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.  My boys are starting to outgrow some of the fun kid stuff so we decided to take them on a little adventure Saturday.  About an hour and a half away is a place to zip line over a canyon and I have been wanting to take them to do that.  I was always worried that my youngest who is 7 would not be able to go, but they allowed for tandem rides.  So it was perfect.  We had so much fun and they want to go again already.  I am already looking for another one that is within driving distance.

Now onto my look.  I got this black sleeveless ruffle midi dress last week and wasn’t sure about it when I picked it up off the rack.  Usually I am not drawn to the midi dress length but I loved the material and shape of this one so I tried it on.  And guess what…I loved it.  I wore it to a shower over the weekend with these wedges for a more dressed down look and received so many compliments on it.  It could be paired with some black heels if you needed a more dressed up look too.  I think it will work for so many occasions throughout the spring and summer.  It also looks good with a denim jacket over it too (see below).  It is TTS and I am wearing an XS which is what I normally wear in this brand.  And for under $33 it is a great affordable summer spin on a little black dress.


Spring Favorites

So March means spring and that means it is time to change up your wardrobe and accessories.  I am seeing so many good things I want to add to my spring wardrobe (some I have already bought).  The bright colored accessories, wedges and straw bags so many great options.  So time to put away the sweaters and boots and get those pedicures and show off those toes.

Here are some of my new purchases or items on my wish list for spring.  And most are under $50.

White Denim Under $70

Jeans / Tee / Wedges / Purse / Sunglasses (similar) / Necklace (similar)

Although I wear my white denim all year round in Texas some people may not break theirs out until spring and summer.  Today I am sharing several white denim options and all are under $70.

I own 3 pairs of white denim jeans, I don’t know why but I do.  I have a regular skinny pair, a skinny cropped pair and a distressed skinny pair.

I know white denim can be scary for some because well they are white.  But I (knocking on wood over here) have been very lucky to keep my clean when I wear them.  Maybe just avoid wearing them if you are going to around young kids or someplace where the chance of you getting dirty is very high.

So go and get you a pair of white denim jeans and don’t be scared to wear them out of the house!





Camo Pants + Twist Tee


Why does the 2 days over the weekend feel like the quickest 48 hours but Monday and Tuesday feel like it lasts for 5 days?  I hate when my weekends come to an end.

I was so excited to see that my camo jeggings are back available.  For a little while they were sold out online and in store, so I was so happy to see them online again!  They fit so good and I love the light distressing in the knees.  I have worn them many ways, you can check out a previous post here to see.  They are TTS and usually this retailer will put there jeans on sale for BOGO 50% so you can usually get them on sale.  If you love camo print you will love these jeggings.

For this look I have paired it with a simple twist hem tee and a pair of booties. Adding neutrals to camo is usually how I like to style camo.  But camo is a neutral in my book and looks good with color as well.  How do you like to style your camo pieces?
