cruise ship outfit

If you follow me on instagram, you might have caught a glimpse of some of the breathtaking scenery and adventure Cole and I experienced just a few weeks ago on our Alaskan cruise with Princess Cruises. The photos hardly do the trip justice because it was truly the most breathtaking, majestic trip either of us have ever been on, but I’m going to be sharing them (and some of my first-ever travel video footage!) anyway in a series of several posts here on the blog. 😉

To start, I’m sharing a peek at the gorgeous ship that we called home through the seven day Alaskan cruise, the Ruby Princess, along with an example of a nautical-inspired cruise ship outfit idea that’s perfect for your days at sea.

Fall has finally officially arrived down in Texas, y’all (I felt leaves actually crunching when I was walking in our yard this weekend!) Fall is a wonderful (and welcome!) reminder that change is not only a part of nature, but also that it can be an absolutely beautiful thing. As wonderfully beautiful as change can be though, it can also be difficult. That’s why I’m so excited to team up with my friends at Herbal Essences to talk about embracing change by expressing yourself for all the world to see…through your hair!

SALSA: c/o La Casita Hot Sauce  //  CHIPS: c/o La Casita Chips  //  ROMPER: Socialite  //  BLUE JEAN JACKET: similar KUT From The Cloth  //  SUNNIES: Karen Walker  //  EARRINGS: c/o Virgins Saints and Angels  //  BELT: c/o Raina Belts  //  BANDANA: Madewell  //  BOWL: c/o MacKenzie-Childs

Happy Friday friends!! I’ve been SO excited about sharing this post with you all, and given that tomorrow is the ultimate game day for every Texas fan, the TX-OU game, I thought today would be the perfect time to introduce La Casita Chips and Salsa, a delicious and easy tailgate appetizer! It’s ironic that this post follows one where I talked about how I got started blogging, because the owner/founder of La Casita, Veronica Westlake, (who is also a mega-inspiring #girlboss!) just so happens to be my fourth grade teacher, and was the very first person who recognized and inspired my love for writing. Flash forward 18 years and now the teacher who was such a huge influence on my journey to blogging has turned one of her passions into a business, and the results are delicious. As a girl who’s lived all of her life in Texas, I know a thing or two when it comes to good chips and salsa, and the La Casita hot sauce and chips is absolutely the BEST!
