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..

What do YOU think about the trend? Will you be buying in this summer season?



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…



I couldn’t resisit 🙂


…I work out.

So, I’m kind of in a workout rut. I work out about 4 or 5 days a week and do 20 minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of weights, approx, each day. If I do just cardio, I’ll do 45-60 minutes. BUT… I’m Bored.

In Texas, I worked out at Golds Gym, and they offered Les Mills classes. Everyday I would do a couple of classes and I was OBSESSED. Cycling is by far my favorite with kickboxing being a close second. Sadly, my gym now doesn’t offer any classes so I’m stuck with a routine of the same 4 cardio machines.

I would love to hear some suggestions. What workouts are your favorites?

But, what can make a workout better? GOOD CLOTHES! I’m obsessed with Victoria’s Secret workout gear, and I literally wear their yoga capris every single day. Here are some of my faves.

Disclaimer: I did not take these photos! I just like them 🙂
