The off-the-shoulder trend is here to stay for the fall season, and you know this girl is a happy camper. This little nautical striped off-the-shoulder top is just $36 and is from a new online boutique I’m so excited to tell you about – Tristin. I’m always a sucker for online boutiques with unique finds lie this top at affordable prices, but Tristin does one even better. This family-owned boutique has made it their mission to change the way we shop by never using products made from animals and they donate a percentage of their profits to animal rescues and rights charities.

As you may or may not know, in two months I’ll be running my third half marathon at the happiest place on earth. Since this isn’t my first run-rodeo, I know that a successful race requires training AND healthy eating. While cooking healthy meals for Cole and I at home is easy to do, the one thing that always gets me is snacks. Chips and queso, chips and guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip…you name it! This girl is addicted to salty snacks, which usually come in forms that are all sorts of unhealthy. So you can imagine my excitement to discover Harvest Snaps – a low calorie, high protein snack that makes healthy snaking a snap!

There’s something about getting married and having your first home (we’re renting ours currently, but it’s still a first!) that just makes you want to host a party. I remember being so excited to host our first party at our home, spending hours planning everything from the decor to the food and beverages. Since we’re coming upon the time in Texas where it’s actually enjoyable to spend a day or evening outdoors (it’s just too hot in the summer, y’all!), today I’m so excited to be partnering up with my friends at Noonday Collection to share some ideas on hosting a sweet weekend gathering.
