Step Into My Office… The Big Reveal!!

Happy Wednesday Babes!!!

I hope ya’ll had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend! Our’s was FULL of outdoor fun and lots of family time! I recently bought an inflatable water slide that was a huge hit! The kids were on it all day, every day which in turn left the adults to chill and relax!! Unfortunately, there is a weight limit on the slide so none of the adults actually used it but I see that rule breaking in the future.. we did not want to break it Day 1 🙂

As promised, today I am sharing a project that only took a year to complete! After many months of procrastination and trying to figure out my vision, I am sharing my new home office! But I do have a confession, after looking at pictures I realized I want to do some painting and add a couple more tweaks but I am very happy with the final product!! 🙂

ENJOY!!!!

I am so happy with how everything turned out! All the decor came from different places but all seemed to come together so well. I obviously am a huge fan of color and prints and that is what makes me the happiest! That was my main focus when it came to the decor! Vibrant, colorful, feminine, fun and exciting! Words to describe my dream office!

I hope you love it as much as I do! Hopefully it doesnt take me a whole year to put the actual “final touches” on it 🙂

Have an awesome rest of the week!

What I Ordered From The NSale + Weekend Sales

Happy Friday Babes!

I know I promised my Home Office Reveal for today, but I couldn’t NOT share the most amazing sale of the year!!! I took advantage early and bought some amazing deals that I wanted to share for all of you to take advantage of! I always regret not waiting to buy until sale time but I’m always worried my size will sell out lol. I hope everything you love is in stock and that you’ll get some amazing deals.

I am super obsessed with these Leopard Print Shorts and I actually tried these on awhile back but never got them. Now I am glad I waited for them to go on sale!  Speaking of leopard print, I couldn’t resist this Leopard Choker  that I will probably wear with everything. I had a friend wear this Half Sleeve Tunic  and I totally had to have it. It also comes in 5 other colors. And please don’t get me started on these amazing  High Waist Leggings … I was sold at “sucks it all in”!!!  I have seen so many babes wearing this Bell Sleeve Top and I couldn’t pass it up, especially for under $25!!  If I don’t already have enough fringe pieces in my closet, I had to add this  Fringe Crossbody. The most versatile piece I purchased hands down is this High Neck Dress! I cant wait to get all of these in the mail 🙂

All of these are still in stock last I checked but I know they are going fast! Happy Shopping!!!

Jumpsuit Obsession

Yup…… another jumpsuit! 🙂

They are just that good and are pretty much an obsession! Especially if they involve stripes and are under $40!!!! Ill take 20 of them!

 I have to talk about this striped culotte jumpsuit!

striped jumpsuit

Jumpsuit // Neck Scarf (Similar) // Shoes // Hat // Sunglasses

I actually tried this jumpsuit on at Dillards while trying on some Easter dresses. I always have the best luck at Dillards! I didnt end up buying it but regretted my choice later on. I decided to order it and so glad I did! The wide leg culottes cut and square neckline is chic and sophisticated and easier than you think to wear! I am wearing a size 6 but probably should have ordered a size 8 for a more tailored look. I paired it with a fun neck scarf, panama hat and my go-to strappy sandals!

Being short and stocky build, I never think jumpsuits are flattering for my body type but I think its all about the print and the cut of the material. Vertical stripes are ALWAYS a good idea. Horizontal stripes can shorten your figure and make you look wider than you are… trust me (homecoming dress circa 2001) Anything with a tie-waist helps accentuate your curves and actually gives you a waist. I am literally the same size width wise and dont really have a waist. I love the hem line on this jumpsuit because it breaks off my torso from my bottom half! AND it has pockets… AHHMAZING!!!

I think it would flattering on any body type! And anything from Dillards is a WIN!

What are your thoughts on jumpsuits?

Happy Monday!!! Our weekend flew by but at least its a short week… I spent most of the weekend getting my home office FINALLY set up and complete! (It only took a year.. #oops) I will be doing an office reveal later this week. Eeeek!

But….  Yay for Memorial Day Weekend!!

I wanted to share some fun inspiration if you are needing last minute essentials! And let me tell you… this fanny pack doesn’t disappoint!  I actually used it this weekend at a neighborhood block party and everyone wanted one!  Beer holder = SUCCESS! 🙂

Black Bardot Dress + Pom Pom Heels

Here in Dallas, it’s getting to the point where it’s warm enough to head to the pool on the weekends, which I’m SUPER excited about. I’m currently doing my swimsuit research and stocking up on great little summer dresses like this one.

laser cut off the shoulder dress

You guys know how much I love off-the-shoulder anything, so right off the bat this piece is a winner in my book. I was initally attracted to the sleeves and then the laser cut detail caught my eye and I was SOLD! The fit is perfect, AKA flowy, and you cant go wrong with black!  This dress is such a good summer buy and so affordable! It’ll also be perfect for holidays especially when trying to avoid tan lines!

And can we talk about these shoes! Show Stoppers! They give me life and are actually pretty comfortable! I love how the statement heels look with a simple LBD. I was actually wanting to make some myself as a DYI project. After researching and finding all the supplies, I was going to be out $50! Why not actually find some already made AND cheaper?!?! These are under $20 and on sale y’all! Whoop Whoop!

Of course I had to add more color and sass to the outfit with a fun necklace and my favorite pom pom earrings!

Have an awesome weekend babes!

Brittany 🙂
