When Houston and I moved back to Sacramento we started off staying with my parents, then moved into an apartment that turned out to not be a good situation, and then moved into the apartment that we live in now. Finally being settled into this apartment has felt amazing! I love being in this new space, the apartment was brand new when we moved in, which has been amazing! I wanted to give a little peak at how we styled our living room and made it our own comfy, cozy, and glam style. I am a bargain shopper so a lot of the things that I have gotten have been from Hobby Lobby, Marshals, or even craigslist! That couch and living room table? Craigslist! Our corner chair? Free, my mom found it on our neighbors lawn with a “FREE” sign on it and made me hop out of the car and snatch it up. Our dining table? An old 1930’s table that I refinished. There are so many ways to have a space that is all your own while not breaking the bank! I love being able to find the best deals on things that really scream my name.
One of my staples this week has been this super cute beach shirt that I actually made myself! I had such a fun time getting to design my own shirt with Uber Prints, I honestly was not sure that I could do it when they first approached me about trying it out but the process was surprisingly simple!
Happy Monday! Anyone else get out today and watch the eclipse?? We all were able to take a look today at work and it was cooler than I expected! I was waiting for the sun to be fully covered and then realized that we in Sacramento were not going to have that happen for us…oh well!
Sacramento summers can get pretty hot so my summer wardrobe has mainly consisted of skirts, fun tops, and strappy heels so that I can stay somewhat cool during these hot months! I love trying new shapes and this trumpet skirt is totally new to me, I have nothing like it. I love that this fabric is super thick but stretchy at the same time, it helps to keep its shape close to your body which is ultra flattering!
I am a sucker for trying out different brands and different products all the time, I feel like I can never get enough of new products! Some I love and some I don’t, but it never hurts to try right? I recently received these products to try from Lancome and was really excited because I realized that I had never tried a Lancome product before! I feel like I have tried everything so I am happy that I was finally able to get some of their products and give you my honest review of each product I used!
Do you know those pieces of clothing where you try them on, fall in love, and want to just buy every piece in every print they offer? That is how I feel about this perfect summer maxi wrap dress. This is a true wrap with an adorable ruffle detail along the bottom of the skirt and fluttery sleeves, great details that really make it different from other plain maxi dresses! Like everything else from Love Kuza it is made of quality material that lasts forever! This is a piece that you will have for a long time and goes with everything. I have been wearing it to work a lot recently because it is dressy while still being extremely comfortable, you can’t go wrong! You can always dress it up and make it look different when you switch the heels up for wedges or something with a pop of color and when you change up the accessories!
I have linked the dress that I am wearing below as well as images of other things that I am LOVING right now on their site that you can check out too!
Some pieces I am LOVING from them that are perfect for summer and expanding your closet!
And I am back! Graduating, moving, starting my new job, and moving again has made for a crazy life lately and I have let my blogging slack because of it. But I am back and ready to keep up with posting! What better way to kick off from my break then with this gorgeous red dress! I don’t think it is any secret that I love the color red and that I don’t mind standing out. This dress is such a perfect special occasion dress because it is made of great, thick material and can be dressed up so easily.
Even when it is raining in Sacramento it is still warm and my favorite place to be! This was my #sundaybest for church and when we got out it was totally pouring rain, but that was not going to stop us from getting pictures of this look! So under the overpass was the only dry place we could go to and still be able to find that little bit of light that we needed. Nothing was stopping me from capturing this bell sleeve look!
I am a total skirt and blouse kind of girl, especially when the blouse is so fun like this one is! Who doesn’t like to mix it up a little and find something that is super different from everything else in their closet? I know that I do and I love the idea of being able to brand out from my comfort zone! This blouse is a perfect piece that goes with everything. I love that it is this cropped length because it pairs perfectly with a high waisted pencil skirt like this one. You can never go wrong with that combo! I even like to switch the skirt out for a pair of cute cut off jeans. Or some distressed shorts. Really the possibilities are endless! I can’t tell you how many compliments I get it on it when I wear it out, it has been a huge hit.
I also have been really working to build up my jewelry collection with pieces that I can wear all the time. This neck party that I have been rocking has not come off since I have gotten the pieces! Chokers are great for layering and keeping on all the time! You really don’t need to add anything else, the delicate gold details speak for themselves.
I am keeping it short and sweet today with this really pretty white and gold look! I love this color combo, to me it just looks so timeless and classy and chic (my husbands favorite word ;). Has anyone else seen those sequin pillows where one way they are sparkly and the other they are a different color? This shirt is exactly like that! You can either make it all gold or all white or something in the middle like I did. This shirt is also made of a super thick and luxe fabric, it is my new go to for when I want to add a little more everyday glamour!
