what to wear?

Hey y’all,

Sorry I’ve been gone the past couple of days – it has been busy! Tuesday night Collin and I were at our friends house all night for dinner and some games. We ended up staying really late and had a lot of fun out there! Then yesterday I finally got some quality time at the pool, a great workout, and Collin made us an AMAZING dinner.

So today, after I woke up I had to sit in on a magazine interview for work and run a few errands. I’m finally back in for the day!

I’m starting to really think about my cousins’ wedding I’ll be attending in a couple of weeks. I was talking to my mom the other day about what we should wear because it isn’t your typical wedding. It’s being held in the Stockyards and seems like it will be more casual than most. Initially I thought a maxi-dress would be super adorable – but my mom and I are both VERY short!

I’ve actually never worn a maxi-dress because of how short I am, but I would love to try it! Here are some of my favorites from Nordstrom that I think might work for us short people for the season:

Fire Bustier Maxi Dress (Juniors)

Splendid Stripe Faux Wrap Maxi Dress

Fire Strapless Print Chiffon Maxi Dress (Juniors) (Online Only)

 

These all have defined waistlines that would help from the dreaded no-leg image.

What do you think about maxi-dresses and height?

Flashback Friday

I have noticed A LOT of leather on the runways lately and have seen leather products filling up clothing stores. It feels like I’m back in the 90’s with the leather pants trend!

One thing I actually just noticed today really blowing up the retail world is leather summer dresses – and it definitely caught my eye.

Here are a few adorable leather dress finds of mine..

You can take the girl out of TX…

The last few days my boyfriend got off work so we got to go to TEXAS – my home, sweet home. I fully believe that you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take the Texas out of the girl.

I was SO happy we got to see my wonderful parents right after Mother’s Day and my best friend from high school had her 21st birthday. But before I get to my trip…

As promised, I took advantage of the sunny, warm weather.

After getting some much needed sun, I had to run some errands and pack for our last-minute trip. Early Tuesday morning we drove on down to Texas and immediately began the birthday celebrations!

We had a lot of fun that night swimming, going out to dinner, and playing games. Wednesday Collin (my boyfriend) and I enjoyed spending time with my parents and relaxing.

This morning we headed back with our ADORABLE kitty…

It’s almost swim season!

It’s almost my favorite time of the year…SUMMER!

The pool at my apartment complex isn’t opening til the last week of may (LAME, by the way) but that won’t stop me from laying out. The forecast is warm and sunny tomorrow and I can assure you I’ll be by the pool all day!

So in honor of how excited I am for this time of year, I’ll be sharing my favorite swimsuits that I’m dying to get!

These are from my absolute FAVORITE store to get swimsuits – Victoria’s Secret.

 

Where are your favorite places to shop for swimsuits?

MET Gala.. The good, the bad, the ugly..

I’m back fellow bloggers! Things got EXTREMELY crazy with finals for school… but IT’S SUMMER!! I’m finally taking a break before my last year of college and looking forward to enjoying this much needed time off.

And for my first post back, we’re taking a look at some Met Gala outfits.

This year, the theme was “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” Honestly, I love the idea. It is the perfect theme to get some high-couture unique outfits with personal twists. Here are my favorites:

Anne Hathaway

In Valentino, Anne Hathaway stood out to me in a floor-length dress that was stunning. It was extremely flattering and although “punk,” still classy.

Jennifer Lawrence

To be completely honest, I’m not a Jennifer Lawrence fan. That being said, I am obsessed with this Dior dress. It’s something completely classy and something that us normal people could wear to any fancy event.

Miranda Kerr

GORGEOUS. She was by far the best dressed of the night, in my opinion. The cut-out dress trend is one of my favorites for this season and this Michael Kors dress was very flattering on her. Love.

And here were the worst dressed of the night:

Kristen Stewart

This outfit was not flattering at all, and had more of an oriental feel than a punk feel, in my opinion. And this slicked back hair trend.. am I the only one not understanding it? Pretty color – I’ll give her that.

Kim Kardashian

Of course, this picture has been EVERYWHERE so this isn’t anything new. The pattern is very overwhelming on her. If it was a solid color, the dress itself wouldn’t have been horrible – but it’s just too much. Her makeup is gorgeous, though, and the print on the shoes is adorbs.

And for the most SHOCKING outfit of the night…

Madonna

I honestly don’t even know what to say about this outfit. She’s on point with the punk theme, but my goodness. It is Madonna though..so are we really surprised?

The Met Gala brought outrages outfits to the red carpet, and I was loving it.

What were your favorite/least favorite outfits from the Met Gala?
