Today, I am so excited to be collaborating with Zaful to share with you this darling striped dress and cute accessories. I fell in love with these stripes at first sight and knew I had to have the mustard tassle earrings to pair with it. I mean, how can your beat $5 earrings that are THIS cute?!
I received my package in record time and could NOT wait to open it, as I had requested items through a wishlist prior to my order arriving and was hoping I would be sent the items requested. To my surprise, there they were! Exactly what I had selected!
I immediately put the dress on and would definitely say, it runs true to size. If you’re busty, I would suggest sizing up in this particular style as it does seem more fitted on top, especially with the button detail. I chose to unbutton the top button, as it was more comfortable and seemed to gape open a tad when closed. Overall, I found the quality to be good, especially for the price, it was not see through and looked exactly like the photo provided online. I also love that you can unbutton the bottom or completely button it all the way down. You can decide how you want to style this piece and make it your own. I love it paired with a big hat or on days where my hair is actually clean, I like to add a straw bag, some comfy sandals and a tassle earring or bracelet stack.
I will even go as far to say, I think this dress would be appealing to nursing mama’s because of the button detail. Also, if you aren’t a fan of green, no worries, this dress comes in four colors and in my opinion, is the perfect summer maxi. Its flowy, for chips and salsa, has pockets, another perfect attribute for moms, and pairs so well with a straw hat or fun bag to accessorize, if you choose.
Finally, if you’re in the market for a fun, summer dress or a cute pair of earrings but don’t want to break the bank, Zaful has several great and affordable options. They don’t stop at dresses either, friends. Zaful even provides swimwear, hair accessories, rompers, jumpsuits and so much more to accommodate your needs. Check out their website here.

Have a great week!

Hello, loves! I hope your Wednesday is off to the best start!
It was touch and go for a while but it seems spring may just be here to stay, or we hope! Over the weekend, and while it was a high of 50 degrees, I took a poll on what you guys wanted to see, and one of the most requested was the top items for spring. So, here they are!
Let’s begin with prints! From floral to gingham, stripes to tropical, sequins and of course polka dots, prints are everywhere right now! I am loving any and all things print and am having so much fun mixing and matching lately. Gingham is always so classic and I am so happy its made such a statement this season and you can never go wrong with polka dots. Can I also mention, anytime this girly girl can wear sequins or embroidery, you know I’m going to rock it! So, whether you’re the ultimate #girlboss, love to snazzy it up a bit or have your toes in the sand on a beach, this seasons prints will have you covered in a whole lot of cuteness! You can even shop these items by hovering over them and clicking on the image.
Secondly, hats are all the rage right now, and you NEED one! Not only for fashion purposes but to cover your pretty faces and keep you from getting premature wrinkles. Straw hats are one of my favorite accessories going from spring and into summer. They are chic and hide those bad hair days, or in my case, dirty hair days! I love a hat, y’all! Perfect for the pool or even for those times you just want to throw on a tank and shorts or a cute sundress and make that hair last one more day without a shampooing! Check these cute options out!
Speaking of accessories, another favorite that takes me back to the glory days, is ribbons, hair scarfs, and bandanas. I never thought I’d see cheer days return in my 30’s but the more sophisticated version is back and I’m not one bit mad about it! I’ve been using them often to dress up my top knots, accessorize my half up do or just to keep my hair out of my face completely. You could say they are multipurpose, as they can be worn around your neck or in your hair. Love this newish, throwback trend that you will be seeing often, at least on me, this summer!
Overalls=LIFE! My #momiform just got an upgrade and if you haven’t already, it’s time to dig them out of the back of your closet, ladies! So much goodness and they are so cute on EVERY body type! Also, as a mom, they are a dream. Here are the ones I chose. They have a great fit and are so comfortable, plus are on SALE! HOLLA! Shortalls are another great option for those hot summer months and you better believe I have a pair hanging in my closet that I plan on wearing on repeat every chance I get. All my soccer mom friends, get ready! You’ll be seeing them most Saturdays! 😉 Please note, in regard to fit, I would suggest staying with your regular size, unless you want a looser fit. American Eagle, Madewell and Abercrombie run true to size, but I would suggest sizing up in the H&M brand. As this brand tends to run on the smaller side. For size reference, I chose a 2 short in AE. I am 5’4 and the short option always fits me best. I can easily wear a 4 or even depending on the cut, a 6 in H&M. It has more of a European fit, so just be aware of this if ordering online.
Bamboo and straw bags! This is a big one y’all that will be carried right into summer! HA! From Cult Gaia to Mar Y Sol and all the dupes in between (linked below) your accessory game will be on point all season long. These unique bags are simply an outfit game changer. Add the classic arc bag to your collection and pair it with all of your cute spring rompers or even cut-off denim and a graphic tee. Show stoppers that will make a statement and I guarantee you’ll be asked where to find them wherever you go! My arc bag is one I get asked about often and complimented when carried. Check these great (real and dupe) options out below!
High waisted EVERYTHING! Mom jeans and culottes have made a come back and I can see why! Hold the phone, denim skirts too, y’all! Can we say spring of 2005? I literally gave all my denim skirts away thinking it would never happen. WRONG! I’ve recently purchased a couple new styles to update the wardrobe and although they aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, they seem to be sticking around until further notice. Here are a few favs and affordable options. I would always suggest sizing up in denim skirts. I say this because you don’t want your bottom to be “cupped” for a lack of a better word (I’m a little delirious) and you want it to fall on your hips. Message me if you need sizing references in any of the brands below!
In rounding out the look, two must have items are dainty necklaces and fun tassel earrings. These are kind of opposite ends of the spectrum but just think, dainty necklace by day, fun tassels by night. I always love Baublebar and Sugar Fix for my dainty necklaces. They are affordable and are just perfect for everyday wear. I’ve linked a few of my most current favorites for you!
Let’s talk tassels. They are so fun, are a little EXTRA and are great to add a fun pop of color to a print or solid. I’ve been eyeing these below.
Last but certainly not least, BODYSUITS! If you haven’t snagged one yet, its a must to wear under overalls and high waisted shorts. They also are perfect for layering under kimonos and light-weight cardigans, that is, if Mother Nature decides to freak out on us again. Fingers crossed it stays nice and warm! Here are a few I own and a couple I’m saving for a day that I have an “add to cart” moment.
I hope this post leaves you feeling beautiful and confident in all of your spring finds and buys and that no matter what you choose in this season, whether it be, denim, florals, dainty, ruffles or understated, that you will embrace the beauty within! Rock that outfit and keep being YOU, girlfriend!
I can’t believe it’s SPRING BREAK! Feels like it snuck up on us pretty quickly. I thought I would round up a few favorites since we’re finally going into warmer weather and it’s beginning to feel a lot like springtime. Also, can I just say, bring on the beach! Like, my body says no, but my mind says YES, PLEASE! Anyone else? I literally go from being so excited about fall and all of the chunky knits that come with it, to can’t wait for some sunshine and tan lines! I mean, sunny and 75, beachy waves, pineapple drinks! I go from 0-100 in about 3 minutes between wanting more of that crisp air and missing the hot summer sun! I think we can just skip the West Texas spring wind and tune up the boat because this mama is ready! I think you get my point but with all of the cute spring fashion hitting the ground running, it makes it all the more exciting!
Here are a few of my favorites to get you into that sunshine and spring/summer time spirit!

It’s Wednesday and I’m hoping you’re recovering from all of the festivities of Christmas! Just a few more days to prepare for New Years, but I have something that is sure to start 2018 off right!
If you don’t already know, I’m a sucker for a little arm candy, and this watch is all of that and more. Meet the “Frankie Series” from Jord Wooden Watches.
Thats right, friends! I said “wooden” watches!!
Talk about UNIQUE! They come in a variety of colors from maple to dark sandalwood and eleven other options to fit the needs of both men and women. Did I mention the quality is absolutely amazing? The sandalwood is hand finished with pretreated tung oils and the sapphire glass around the face is known worldwide for its durability so it’s guaranteed to last for seasons to come. One important detail I love about the “Frankie Series” is it has such a classic design yet is modern and chic. It’s built for every day wear and will go from work to play in a matter of minutes. No pun intended! From chasing my toddler at the park to a dinner date with my girls or husband, this watch goes with me everywhere. I also love that every Jord watch tells a story. Each series in every collection is described so differently and distinctively on the Jord website, which also makes purchasing a watch from them an extraordinary experience.
I have to say friends, when this beauty arrived at my door, I was literally blown away by the packaging alone. Jord is seriously brilliant when it comes to their packaging and marketing their product. Each watch comes in the most stunning wooden box that actually doubles as a jewelry box and it does not disappoint. I could hardly contain my excitement when this package arrived!
Like mentioned above, Jord has a broad selection of luxury wooden watches to choose from. The “Frankie” stood out to me personally because I love the emerald face paired with the dark sandalwood. It makes such a beautiful statement and the large face is most appealing, simply because I love pieces that are stylish yet have an unconventional elegance. Something you see and think, I wonder where they found that? It’s definitely not a piece you’re likely to come across on a daily basis.
Jord also engraves their pieces which makes them the PERFECT gift for a loved one. On birthdays, anniversaries, even with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, Jord has you covered and is sure to make your day even more special with a customizable message, name or initials. From classic to sleek in design, Jord is one-of-a-kind!
