Orange Crush

Happy Monday! I’m currently sitting lakeside this weekend. We haven’t been out once this whole summer so I’ve been dying to come. The lake is my absolute favorite place. I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Oklahoma or what but there’s something about being out at the lake that makes me feel like I’m escaping life even if just for a day or two. Don’t we all need relaxation every once in awhile?

This has been such a fun post. I recently purchased THESE converse and was wondering how I was going to style them. I loved the idea from other bloggers with taking a pair of white sneakers and throwing it together with a dress or skirt. It seems very 80s or 90s to me! Speaking of 90s, MY choker necklace is back in style. If someone would’ve told me this at the age of 7 they’d be cool again I would’ve kept a few! I loved them growing up and I think it’s so cool that things like white sneakers and choker necklaces we wore as kids are back in style today as adults. This skirt was a recent find from the TopShop collection. I love the cut-out lace detailing. I chose to dress it down in a fun way. This is a perfect summer wear! What are your thoughts on my 90s vibe summer outfit?

White Hot

Happy Monday! Ahh I’m so excited to be blogging again! I took off for the 4th of July and decided to take last Monday off as well. Sometimes you need to step away for a short period of time to refocus your energy. I’m glad I did that and I’m happy to be back full of excitement! Thank you for your continual support.

It has been over 100 degrees here in Oklahoma the past couple weeks so sweating immensely has become the norm for everyone around here. I thought I’d make that the topic of this week’s post; how to dress when it’s ridiculously hot outside. It doesn’t take an engineer to figure out that the less clothing you wear, the cooler you will be! But, lets not get too carried away as most of us still want to be presentable, that’s why my tank is so great for summer weather. I’m really big into any fabric other than cotton when I’m hot. I know people say cotton is “good” to wear in summer but I’m always miserable with a cotton shirt in 100 degree weather. I go for a lot of polyester material in the summer heat days. Polyester allows for better airflow and dries much more quickly than cotton, which helps when you’re dealing with sweat! As much as I love wearing my daisy duke cut offs every day in summer, (I work from home) sometimes occasions call us to be a little more presentable. Try going for this version of shorts to dress up a little. A cute summer dress like this or this is always fantastic as well.

Stay cool ladies!

Happy Monday! My usual photographer and husband, Austin, is currently in Boston this weekend helping a friend move back to Tulsa. So sometimes I get lucky and the talented Lauryn Tumpkin helps me out like she did with my first post here. Thank you, Lauryn!

I picked THIS dress up from the TopShop Collection at Nordstrom. The nude (I say pinkish) cold shoulder midi dress is fun to dress up or down. For attending a wedding, dress it up like I did or for a fun brunch date try mixing it with a pair of Converse shoes and a choker necklace.

*FYI – I love TopShop but I learned with their brand I had to size up one size on everything.

Rose Serenity

Fashion Colors of The Year

Happy Monday… I feel like I should stop saying that. Let’s be honest, most Mondays, at least Monday mornings are not all that happy. You’re dreaming of the past weekend and already plotting next weekend’s adventures. That’s why I bring you this every Monday. I hope to inspire your Monday Blues with a touch of happiness, creativity, or inspiration for the week to come. I post on Mondays because we all need an escape sometimes. With that being said, happy Monday!

For those of you who keep up with the world of style and fashion you know that the colors of 2016 include Rose Quartz and Serenity. A few of you may have scoffed at the idea of this, but the vision behind these colorings were to find colors that make us feel comfortable; who doesn’t love that? I think the offset of pinks and blues is something to admire and maybe adopt into your own wardrobe this summer. I did and I’m glad, because and I’ve fallen in love with this coloring combo. Check out examples here of how to wear your Colors of The Year best. Oh and I wanted to let you guys know that I picked my cute tank up from Urban Outfitters for $7! So if you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by and try this super comfy tank on. I’ve linked a few here, here and here.

Printed Summer Joggers – All Dressed Up

Happy Monday! Whoa! We had a crazy busy (good busy) week. Sunday was a full day of brunch, friends, and birthday parties. I purchased these BCBG joggers last summer and loved them. They are SO comfy; I’d wear them to work (retail management at the time) for long workdays if I knew I’d be doing physical movement but still wanted to maintain a trendy look. Joggers are great to dress down for festivals and casual day-dates. Other times, you can dress them up like I did for work or for night dates! I like to wear mine for evenings out with the hubby. I found these (on sale 40% off) and these that are this year’s version that are very similar. I’ve also linked others I found that are super cute below. Joggers are a comfortable way to look trendy and fashionable; I’d pick them over jeans any day!

All Wrapped Up

Summer Kimono Wrap Style Floral Dress

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend. I’m writing this while packing for a quick getaway to the family lake house. I picked this wrap kimono dress up from Dolce Vita a few weeks ago. The beautiful colors in this wrap dress are PERFECT for summer. This dress would be a hit for weekends at the beach or lake, a summer BBQ, or a brunch date! I’ve never worn a kimono dress before but love the way it fits. It’s ties around at the waist and effortlessly flows throughout the shoulders and arms as well from the waist down. For the Tulsa area ladies, you can pick this dress at Dolce Vita (just reordered!) and for the not-so-close girls, I’ve found some beautiful similar pieces here, here, and here that would be gorgeous choices! If you’re looking for shorter wrap kimono dress options, try this or this!

My Spring-Style Floral Skater Dress

I never wait this late to write a post! It’s 10pm on a Sunday night and I just got home from Hop Jam, where we got to see some friends play, along with the folk/hippie band, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s (so fun). My feet are swollen and I’m covered in a layer of sweat, SO gross! This weekend was full of festival fun.

I’ve been waiting a few weeks to share THIS DRESS (similar here) from our local Dolce Vita with you guys! Ahh, another one of those pieces I fell in love with so so quickly once stumbling upon! This floral print skater dress makes any body type look great; it hugs and flows in all the right places. This was my first skater-style dress purchase and I have to say I’m hooked. The closeness of the waist and the flowing bottom (my favorite) make me feel all the more girly, while the back makes the dress so unique for skater-style dresses. If you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by Dolce Vita and give this beauty a try-on! I’ve linked a couple very similar ones I love here and here.

See you next week loves!

Flashy Pink Dress with Lace Up Shoes

I can’t believe it’s already Monday again. I’ve had so much fun these past few weekends. Last week, I told you guys that Mother’s Day was my birthday. The day before, my parents came up to Tulsa and took us out to The Rusty Crane for lunch. A place I had wanted to try for a while; the patio is perfect and the food is delicious! My husband, Austin was in a wedding Sunday in OKC, and it just worked out that my BFF Shelby lives in OKC as well. She was studying for pharmacy school finals and graciously gave up some time for me! (She passed btw, cause she’s a genius.) We celebrated by grabbing brunch at Fassler Hall (so good) and did some shopping afterwards (no luck) afterwards we headed off to the wedding!

This Sam Edelman dress was a purchase from last year but…. I found it SO cheap for you guys! This is a great dress I love throwing on for those warm spring and summer days. You can dress it up or down! Throw on a pair of converse and you’re ready for a Saturday brunch with friends, or dress it up with THESE super comfortable heels like I did and you’re looking chic so easily! I love having clothing that  accessorizes for me. I’m the type of girl that goes for the printed pattern dress, to avoid having to find the perfect jewelry combo. This dress just makes everything so easy. And best of all, it has POCKETS! I’m a sucker for dresses or skirts with pockets. Lastly, the TOP trending sunglasses this season; oh Dior how I love you so, yet can’t afford you… so I picked up similar dupes to these at Dolce Vita.

See you next Monday loves!

Floral Sleeved

Bell-Sleeve Floral Shirt

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day. Yesterday was also my 23rd birthday so we went out to brunch and attended a wedding in OKC. More details to come.

This week’s post features the currently popular bell sleeve and of course my fav type of print, floral. I found this top on sale at Dillard’s (found it WAY on sale for you) last week and loved it! If you’re a woman who knows fashion you know bell sleeves are so in right now. They are huge (literally) this season. The detailing of the bell sleeve is great because it features enough up top to enable you to keep the bottom of your outfit simple – it does the work for you! For a more conservative look, go for a solid-colored bell-sleeved top and fun-layered or statement necklaces. For fun upcoming events try those patterned bell-sleeved tops you’ve been eyeing! Just remember that with bell sleeves the details are up top, so keep your bottoms simple.

Have a great week ladies!
