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!
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.
It’s hard editing these pictures and putting these posts together now that I am back in Rexburg. I just miss the Sacramento sun so much! I literally drove my car for 15 seconds to the mailbox the other day because I didn’t want to try and cross my apartment complex that is currently covered in a thick sheet of ice. Lazy or genius? I say the second 😉
New year new you, right? I am so ready for the start of a new year! Last semester I feel like I really got off track with my goals and am getting back to the place that I want to be. I have tons of goals this year. Work out, eat healthy, journal, read my scriptures and pray more consistently, plan meals, and so many more things that I want to work on!
One of my biggest goals this year is to write things out and be a better planner. For me writing things down and making lists is so important because it keeps me accountable and organized! Plus, being able to mark things off on my lists makes me feel so good too. One of my new favorite tools to help me be better about this is my LYTE planner, AKA my new bff. This planner has it all. One of its many amazing qualities is that each page is dedicated to a full day so I don’t feel like I have to skip writing things down because I don’t have enough space. I get to write down the tasks that I need to accomplish that day along with all of my homework assignments and still have room for more. Plus there also is a section for the meal plan for each day which is another big goal of mine! Another really special part of this planner is that it is all goal oriented and about “finding your truth.” I love this quote from their website that really sums up what sets their planners apart:
“The LYTE Planner is about defining who you truly want to be and how you really want to spend your time and building your life and schedule around those answers. The LYTE Planner starts with the “Truth Resolution” letter where you define who you want to be and what you want your year to look like. The LYTE Planner is also full of “Truth Prompts” which are one-of-a-kind journal pages that exist to help you nail down answers to the harder questions and prioritize the people and things that matter most to you. Each day in the LYTE Planner also starts with a “Truth Focus” which is there to keep you centered and focused every day no matter how crazy your schedule may get! Finally, the LYTE Planner has extras like a “Bucket List” and “Goals” sheet to keep you dreaming, discovering, and doing! More than anything, the LYTE Planner encourages you to live from your place of truth so you can create a life that you’re truly proud of.”
Who doesn’t want to live a life they love and are proud of?! I know that I do! And sometimes when we don’t feel like we are doing super great that can be hard and cause us to lose motivation (that was me the last couple of months!). But I know from experience that when we are doing the things that we are supposed to, when we are writing down our goals and dreams and working towards accomplishing them, that we are going to feel good about ourselves and have that motivation to keep going. The times that I have felt down about myself have been the times when I have not been doing the things that I should be doing and I lost sight of the woman that I want to be. I wasn’t staying organized or working out or eating healthy. But when I made the choice to change the things that I wanted to change (like going to the gym and plan out healthy meals) I have felt so much better and had more motivation to set new goals.
I know that we all have goals and dreams and things that we want to accomplish. I also know that when we write these things down and look at them daily that we can really work towards them and accomplish whatever we put our minds to! Because we all want live our own truths everyday.
*LYTE planners are now on sale for only $32. Trust me, you will not regret buying this! We can all work on our goals and plan together 😉

Happy Monday! Less than a week until Christmas! I have to admit that Christmas came for Houston and I a little early this year…we did a mini Christmas with just us yesterday before we make the drive to Sacramento to spend some time with our families. I really just could not wait any longer because I knew what was on my Christmas list and was just so eager to get it! It was a fun day, and even better now that we have a small break in-between semesters!
Winter is here and we have entered into what I fondly refer to as “the dark days” because I am not a snow lover (I probably mention this about 3 times a day) and when I can’t wear jeans and a t-shirt outside it is not good! Today’s look is a really cute, low key look that anyone can rock when it’s cold. I love this plaid shirt because it is short sleeved! So perfect for the summer (but waayyyy too cold to show you right now!) And of course I have to rock the moto jeggings again because they are the best. And these black ones are so great! As always details are below.
Houston and I did a little exploring over the weekend and found this fun spot near where he worked for a bit! I was a little afraid that this table was A. going to break, or B. there was something that was going to crawl out of the crevices and I do not do very well with creepy crawly things. But all was well and I sat at the very furthest corner that I could. What a fun place to go though, it was so peaceful and I love being able to step away and not be around others people. That sounds a little anti social… but you know what I mean!
I feel like there are so many must haves for anyones wardrobe because there are so many things to choose from! Here are my top three things that I think every woman should own because they are timeless and look amazing.
