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.

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!

What I’m Loving Lately.. (Its Back!)

Happy Friday y’all!!

I am actually taking a personal day today and putting the OUT OF OFFICE status up for the first time in a LONG time! I decided after a LONG crazy three months of working non stop, I needed a day for myself.. (without actually replying to emails)!! So momma is getting her hair done and then manis and pedis!! In other words… Im getting a “Tune Up “!! I am going to soak it all in and NOT think about work (hopefully)

I last wrote a Loving Lately post probably about six months ago on the old blog platform. It is one of my favorite series to write and to read from other bloggers! Sharing things that make me happy and could make someone else happy is just so much fun!! Here are a couple things I am Loving Lately….

Starbucks Spring Cups

Last week, Starbucks launched their new, multi-colored Spring cups which come in pastel blue, yellow, and green — according to which size you order. The cups feature a big white space in place of the signature Starbucks green mermaid. Don’t worry, some cups will feature drawings inspired by Spring to brighten your season now that the gray skies of Winter are finally leaving.

Silver Hair

I will hopefully be rocking one of these looks after today! I couldnt bare to do my own hair color anymore and need my hairstylist to do work his magic! Hoping that it turns out like I am picturing… Ill keep you posted!

Spring Rompers

Bardot Print Romper

Off The Shoulder Romper

 

Tie-Waist Romper

Halter Print Romper

I want all the floral prints for Spring! Especially floral print rompers!! These are all on my wish list and affordable! I have been on a ruffle kick and putting floral and ruffles together just give me life!!

Cover FX Enhancer Drops

Cover FX Custom Cover Drops are pigments that you can add to either a transparent product to make your own foundation, or another base product to adjust the shade for a better fit. Cover FX suggests one drop for sheer coverage, 2 for medium, 3 for full, and 4 for total. This really is almost pure pigment, which is more bang for the buck. With something like the Custom Cover Drops, I can always have a pigment on hand to lighten or darken up whatever product I’m using.  Also, I love this product as a concealer.  I can take my eye cream, add a drop or two of the Custom Cover Drops and voila, I have a concealer! It’s worked great for me.

HIIT Workout

I recently just started doing the HIIT workouts again since we will be beach bound in a couple weeks. I was getting bored with my usual “Arm Day – Leg Day” workouts and wanted to change it up a little bit. I came across some articles about the HIIT Workouts and thought these looked pretty intense. I actually do some of these exercises already so I thought it couldn’t be too bad. I am still sore from the arm workout on Tuesday. I never thought doing as many push-ups for a straight minute as you can was so hard but let me tell you… I was dying by the third round. The leg workout was pretty intense too…. I incorporated 10 minutes on the stair master with this for extra cardio.

What are some things you are loving lately?

Have an awesome weekend!!

Crown and Ivy for Spring

Hey Friends! Hope y’all had a fabulous weekend!

We had some pretty amazing weather so we spent lots of time outside. I am trying to get this pale body ready for Mexico so I spent a little “extra” time outside soaking up the Texas sun. I need to do this everyday to get any good color 🙂

I recently had the opportunity to work with Belk and one of their popular brands Crown and Ivy! They incorporates a modern twist on the classic southern styles. What I LOVE about the line is it is FULL of versatile pieces, lady like dresses, and even some bold patterns. The fabrics are gorgeous, they’re all clearly well made, and they really epitomize modern southern style. I love wearing a great pair of shorts in the summer. Especially scalloped shorts with an amazing print. Stripes are always a win in my book and these red striped shorts are no exception. The fabric is so lightweight and comfortable. I’m obsessed with the scalloped detail. I paired it with my favorite chambray top and my go-to converse sneakers. It was the perfect outfit for a day of shopping!

The next look features the cutest and most comfy eyelet tank. Its the perfect top for shorts or bright colored jeans! And did I mention its super comfy!! I paired it with my favorite dark rinse denim shorts and a lightweight cardigan that has been on repeat the last couple of weeks!

Happy Monday Friends!!! 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! We were busy with lots of family time! My alumni, Cincinnati Bearcats, played SMU yesterday and it was such a great game!! I dont really have a voice today from screaming and being sick… My Bearcats lost but it was def a fight! And what about the Grammys? I was NOT impressed at all this year… Except for Gaga & Metallica! Epic!! 🙂

Today, I am sharing a transitional look for Spring and it could also be an outfit idea for Valentines Day!  (Please excuse my pale legs!!!!) Since last November, I have not styled shorts in a blog post, so when the weather rose to 80 degrees this weekend I decided it was the perfect time. I found these amazing leather shorts last summer at TJMaxx and actually wore them to the TSwift concert! They are so comfy and the color is more of a dark red. Going for a casual look with a touch of sophistication, I paired these leather shorts with this amazing cream colored blazer that is just the right length for shorts and pants! I wanted to keep it a little edgy why not add some fringe! These stiletto fringe booties have been my go-to for so many outfits!

Do you have any exciting Valentines Day plans tomorrow? We are probably keeping it low key and will go to dinner… with out toddler! #romantic 🙂
