Hi Guys! HAPPY ALMOST LONG WEEKEND! As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been a little busy these past few weeks! Last week I turned 29 and celebrated down in NC with my whole family. The following week Matt put together a small after work happy hour with all our friends to celebrate my b-day a bit belated! I wore this gorgeous blue dress for the occasion and despite being a little overdressed lol I felt awesome in it. It’s ok to dress up on your birthday, right??! The best part about this dress is that it is only $39.99! I am a huge fan of an A-line silhouette as it accentuates the waist giving the illusion of a petite frame. I felt really comfortable in this dress because it hit me at the waist and billowed out from there allowing me to relax and indulge in all the bar food we ordered haha!

This weekend, Matt and I are heading to South Hampton for a whole week, just the two of us. We have had an incredible summer filled with travel, family and friends but I am really looking forward to having a week with just my hubby! What are your plans for labor day? This dress would be perfect for the long weekend. Let me know in the comments!

INSTAGRAM ROUND UP AUGUST EDITION!

Hi Guys! This summer has been one of the busiest summers EVER! The weather has been incredible and we have definitely taken advantage and traveled a ton. I haven’t been posting as often because we have been traveling so much so I apologize about that. Once the fall comes back around ill be back on track! In the meantime, I thought I would put together an Instagram Photo round up so you guys could shop some of my recent outfits and also get a little insight as to what we have been up to!

I am sure you guys are getting sick of hearing about my obsession with 305Fitness, but I am just so obsessed! It is literally the most fun I have everyhad working out and has completely changed the way I look at exercise. I actually look forward to class!! For class, I always try and wear tight fitting leggings and the best ones I have found are by Danskin. Their styles fit me perfectly and come in super fun colors. I linked mine below:

I recently decided to start a book club! We had our first meet up and discussed the book “Me Before You.” Have you read it? It’s such a great book club book and we all had an awesome discussion. Anyways, not sure what you are supposed to wear to a book club, but I was hosting and wanted to look nice so I wore this bright outfit from Zara! I linked these options for you below!

With the weather being so insanely warm these past few weeks, we have been spending our time at…more like IN the pool haha! I absolutely LOVE this Joe Boxer bikini that I found at Kmart. The best news is that it is only $14 lol!

Bikini: Joe Boxer Topbottom

 

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s Instagram round up! This weekend we are heading to Charlotte, NC to celebrate my birthday with my family! Check in to my Instagram to see all the fun we get into!

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend and did your best to stay cool in this INSANE heat wave we are having. I am either in the water at the pool, or inside. Outside is just unbearable!

Blogging has become one of my favorite past times. It isn’t my full time job but I really enjoy it and connecting with all of you guys. One of the perks of having a blog is the swag that comes along with it. Blogging has become such a techie industry from cameras to iPhones and computers etc. so I was super excited when CaseApp reached out to me and offered to give my cell phone and computer its’ own style :).

And I uploaded my blog logo for my phone. As a blogger, I am on my phone a lot so I figured I should be advertising my blog somehow and CaseApp helped me do so! In even better news, one lucky reader is going to get the chance to win their very own iPhone or laptop skin! It’s GIVEAWAY time people!

All you have to do to win is to follow me on Instagram, comment on this post & subscribe to my newsletter. That’s it!

It may be August already and fall is right around the corner, but I am still all about my summer maxi dresses! I am getting as much wear out of them as possible! I got this Zara dress from their end of season sale for under $50. Sadly it is already sold out, but I have added some of my favorite floral dresses that are on sale for you guys to shop below.

This weekend we are heading to South Portland, ME for a family reunion and to celebrate my Nana and Bumpa’s 80th birthdays! I am totally wearing this floral frock to celebrate. Have any of you been to Maine? We used to spend our entire summer there is our cottage by the ocean. It is definitely my happy place :).

I hope you all have a great rest of your week and weekend!
