If you follow me on instagram, you probably know that I haven’t spent much time at home in the month of May (hence the reason why I’ve hardly had a second to post on the blog at all this month – eeekkk, sorry y’all!) But I’m finally back at home for a while and I’m so excited to share my travel diary and photos I’ve stocked up on the last few weeks. While traveling does limit my time on the computer, it does offer up some gorgeous backdrops for blog shoots, and I couldn’t think of a better location than the amazing outdoor pool at The Greenbrier resort where my mom and I traveled a couple of weeks ago (a full review to come – stay tuned!) to shoot this darling little peachy keen, mix-matched bikini set I scooped up from my friends at Albion Fit.

My Top 3 Packing Tips



RED SUITCASE: c/o Lipault  //  PURPLE SUITCASE: c/o Lipault  //  TEAL WHEELED DUFFEL: c/o Lipault  //  TOP: Chelsea 28  //  JEANS: Topshop  //  PUMPS: c/o Sam Edelman  //  BANDANA: Nordstrom  //  SUNNIES: Prada  //  EARRINGS: SUGARFIX by BaubleBar

Confession: I used to absolutely dread packing for a trip. I avoided it like the plague and would often wait until the morning I was leaving to pack or stay up until after midnight the night before (which always gave me zombie status on my first day of travel). Since I began blogging and have started traveling much more in the last couple of years, I’ve quickly learned that having a good packing strategy + the right luggage is key to a successful, stress-free trip.

I’m so excited to team up with my friends at Lipault and Dillard’s to share some of my best tips on packing perfection. Click on the read more button below to read my tips.

PS – calling all my DFW gals, I’ll be sharing the full scoop on my packing tips this Saturday, May 6th at the Dillard’s at Hulen Mall. Come join me at 1:00pm or 2:15pm to mix, mingle and hear all of my tips.

Little White Dress



JACKET: BlankNYC  //  DRESS: Chelsea 28  //  SANDALS: c/o Sam Edelman  //  BAG: c/o GiGi new York  //  SUNNIES: Karen Walker  //  EARRINGS: c/o Lisi Lerch  //  NECKLACE: c/o Panacea  //  WATCH: c/o Cluse  //  CHOKER: c/o Oh My Bijou Box

Happy Tuesday friends! Today I’m excited to talk to you about two things. The first is about a trend I’m especially loving this Spring season, the little white dress, and the second is a new way you can keep up with the latest trends from every season, right from your phone with the new Trove app.

Keeping up with fashion trends for all four seasons of the year (and let’s not forget about that extra resort season they throw in) is not always a simple task, which is kind of the reason why fashion blogging was born…real women visually sharing their interpretation of the season’s trends to help inspire those with a similar style. The thing is, there are SO many fashion bloggers out there these days, it’s gotten hard to keep up. Thankfully, the Trove app, which you can download on your iPhone or smart phone in the app store, is here to make navigating looks from your favorite fashion bloggers more simple than ever before.

I’ve always been a Beyonce fan, but I’d especially like to thank her for her most recent album because I have a feeling its the reason why lemon print is totally trending right now and I’m loving it! Today I’m styling a zasty and playful look featuring the vibrant print along with another trend I’m loving the season – yellow! I know green is the official PANTONE color of the year, but in the fashion world, it seems yellow is getting more love than it has in a long time and I’m all heart eyes over the happy, vibrant color.

Happy Monday friends! Today I’m so excited to be partnering with my friends at Nordstrom and Madewell to bring you a spring picnic-ready outfit featuring the cutest gingham cropped pants from the brand. When I spotted these high waisted crop pants featuring the classic print, visions of picnic baskets and lemonade came springing to mind and I had to have them. While I love gingham print in practically every color, the classic red and white picnic blanket gingham is especially fun to play up for spring.
