Birthday Bliss

tie top // midi skirt // lace up sandals

Happy Sunday! Hands down, this weekend has been one of the best weekends of my entire life. On Thursday, my Grandma, mom and I headed to Las Vegas to celebrate my 21st birthday! We arrived at the Wynn hotel, which was such a gorgeous place to spend the weekend [it’s also where we snapped these pics]. During our weekend, we enjoyed some shopping, eating, casinos, and the incredible Le Reve show. If you ever go to Vegas, you definitely have to see the Le Reve/The Dream show. It was one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen, and I was in owe of how talented all the performers were! It’s definitely a great show for all people, of all ages. On a slightly-random side note, I only got kicked out of the casino once this weekend [the security guard didn’t believe I was actually 21, but it happens, it’s fine]. Being 5’0 doesn’t really help me look my age, but it’s something I will appreciate years down the road.

Long story short, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend with my family. I’m celebrating my birthday with my college besties this week, and I am excited to have one last celebration before exams begin! In the past, birthdays have never been a big deal to me. I’m not quite sure why, but they just never seemed too important to me.However, your 21st is definitely a special one & I decided that I wanted to go all out for once. I wanted to find a birthday outfit that screamed ‘twenty-fun‘, so my sister, Allie, helped me pick out this unique, orange floral set. I paired it with my favorite lace up sandal heels and minimal accessories. It was definitely the perfect bday outfit & I absolutely loved wearing it on my special day!

Though I am sad this perfect weekend is over and that I have to go back to the ‘real world’, I am really grateful that I got to spend some time with my family and enjoy such a fun city.

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

Better in Blue












dress // clutch (similar) // lace up heels // earrings // bracelet

Pretty in pink.. but better in blue. I always seem to gravitate towards blue pieces in the same way it seems most people opt for the ever-so-classic black. I love black, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just something about blue that is so relaxing and fun at the same time. I also feel like it’s very universally flattering (unlike black, which is a color I tend to avoid when I am in dire need a serious tan). I have a confession to make, friends. I may or may not have snatched this dress from my mom’s closet. When I saw this blue & breezy Free People beauty hanging up, I just had to ‘borrow’ it (sorry mom, ily!). This floral mini dress is beyond comfy, and it’s incredibly lightweight, making it perfect for the warm (and sometimes sticky) months ahead. My favorite part about this dress though? It’s easy. It’s that dress that is your constant ‘go-to’. It doesn’t require much thought or contemplation. It’s easy to just throw on, go, and conquer the day. A day of shopping? Pair it with neutral or metallic sandals and a crossbody purse. Brunch with the girls? Lace-up sandal heels and a clutch are a must. This dress also comes in black, so yay for options! I know I will definitely be wearing this dress weekly during the summer. It’s just so adorable!

Feelin’ Floral

Does anything else scream “spring” more than a bold floral print? I don’t think so! When I saw this flirty & fun two piece outfit at a local boutique in my hometown, I knew instantly that it would be the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe. I’ve been obsessed with two piece outfits lately because of how versatile they really are! I especially loved this specific set because of the adorable print, ‘Steel Magnolia’. Steel Magnolia also comes in a romper, crop top, mini dress, maxi dress, and trousers version as well (yay for lots of options!). The mixing-and-matching options are truly endless!

I paired the floral set with cork Tory Burch sandals and a simple black clutch. I definitely plan on rocking the top with denim shorts, white jeans, and neutral skirts this Spring. The shorts would pair perfectly with a chambray button down or any black top. I can’t wait to play around with different combinations all season!

I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend, and that you are enjoying time with family and friends!

Dress: Show Me Your Mumu //  Necklace: Kendra Scott // Boots: Ivanka Trump (linked similar) // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff 

Where the heck did February go? I can’t believe March is already here with spring break just around the corner! Crazy! Just because spring is almost here doesn’t mean you have to put away your over the knee boots just yet. Even though I go to school in the south, it is still chilly here. Though I am dying to break out the halter tops and sandals, I am still taking advantage of this crisp, but sunny, weather. I recently picked up this Show Me Your Mumu dress. I love the Kylie style because it is perfectly casual & beyond easy for everyday wear. I paired it with my favorite black OTK boots and a tassel necklace. However, I definitely plan on throwing it on with a denim jacket and sandals later this month. It could definitely be dressed up with some statement earrings and sky-high wedges as well.

Guess what, friends? I am going to Dallas this weekend! In my three years of college, I have never ‘randomly gone home’. I typically only go home for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and Summer. Going to college ten hours away from home is so fun, but sometimes there is nothing better than a relaxing weekend at home. I also need to bring some of my winter clothes home to swap out with my spring pieces. My grandparents are going to be driving through the area, so I am hitching a ride with them all the way back to Dallas! I am so excited to see my fam & catch up on some much needed Tex-mex!

I hope that you all are having a fabulous first week of March!

Mumu Monday




denim shirt / shorts / tassel earrings / sandals

It’s official. These are the my favorite shorts I have ever owned. I’ve worn them over twenty times this summer (no exaggeration), which is pretty crazy. They pair perfectly with almost all of the tops in my wardrobe and are perfect for day or night. I also think they are really comfortable and flattering. Show Me Your Mumu has easily become one of my favorite brands over the past few months! I absolutely love their bold prints and fun florals.

Here are some other ways to style my favorite tropical-pattered shorts:

Dress Show Me Your Mumu Wedges Jack Rogers  Earrings Kendra Scott

Every time I put on this fun, tropical dress, I instantly feel like I am back in Maui (which is pretty much my very favorite place on Earth). The halter, swingy fit of this Show Me Your Mumu dress is incredibly flattering and perfect for those hot summer evenings. I loved the ‘Katy Halter Dress’ so much, that I purchased another one in this wild print as well! I decided to pair it with some rose gold, hibiscus adorned wedges, and pearl statement earrings. For my lips, I went with a beige lipstick and a layered coral lipstick. I’ve also been playing around with my new Exhibit A blush, so I will definitely be reviewing this bold blush soon!

Hope you are having an awesome weekend!
