DESERT FLORAL




Oh hi. I feel like I've been so MIA from this little space of mine recently. We moved into a new apartment about a week ago so we were occupied with packing and cleaning and unpacking and unpacking some more.

We are finally getting in the swing of things so hopefully I'll have more regular posts up for you guys. I also need someone to kick me in the butt so I can keep up my YouTube videos that I've been MAJORLY slacking on. (Insert all the monkey-covering-eyes emojis in the world because I officially suck.)

Yet somehow, I managed to take a few pretty desert pics with my super talented friend Rox. Tis the season for florals and maxi dresses so get on it people. I linked to a bunch of cutie options below. You can scroll through the images and click through to shop them directly! XOXO

PLEATED IN PINK

Hello my dears! This week I turned one year older, and (hopefully) one year wiser! I am such a birthday person through and through. I love celebrating my loved ones birthdays and I love celebrating my own too. I was whining my face off to Jake about my birthday this year because I wanted to go on a trip, but it's just not practical at this stage in our lives. We're moving to a new place next week and have had tons of unforeseen expenses recently, so we'll just have to put on our big kid panties and push the pause button on traveling. 

Jake was so sweet and took the day off work to hang out with me and planned the whole day out. We went to the Phoenix Zoo which was SO much fun. We were running around like toddlers, just having a grand old time. Since my birthday fell on a Tuesday, we pretty much had the entire zoo to ourselves. The giraffes and the flamingos were my favorite. Then we went to the mall to pick up my birthday dress and then had sushi for dinner. It was kind of the best. 

It's times like these where I'm filled with gratitude for all the genuinely good and kind people who are in my life. I'm wildly blessed.

Have a great weekend!!! xoxo

It's that time again! SHOPBOP is having their friends and family sale and I've rounded up my favorite picks of the season. Full price and sale items are 25% off at Shopbop, and 30% off East Dane with code INTHEFAM.

There are so many cute thing for spring/summer that I've been eyeing. Since it's my birthday in about a week, I feel like it's totally ok to spoil myself a little. (Just don't tell my husband.) I might need to take the plunge on these sunglasses, this bag, these sandals, and this dress. But if I'm being totally honest, I just want it all.

I hope you are able to snag something during this sale. But hurry because the sale ends April 7th at 11:59 p.m. xoxo

BELLS SLEEVES, BLUE JEANS, AND BOHO BRAIDS


sweater: c/o PB&J BOUTIQUE (on sale!!) || jeans: ZARA (loving THESE) || chain chocker: c/o ELEANOR KALLE || stone choker: c/o ELEANOR KALLE || shoes: KORKEASE


Happy Monday! I hope you all had the best Easter weekend. We went to church, ate a HUGE meal, took two hour naps, and then went to the park with our pup. We don't live in the same state as our families so holidays can be a bit lonely. But as hard as it is to be far from family, this Easter was so simple and perfect.

I wore this outfit to the park and Jake kept saying how it looked like a "bonfire outfit." Like what? No clue how he comes up with this stuff, but I guess I can kind of see it. ;)

But in all seriousness, have you guys heard of PB&J Boutique? They carry some of my favorite brands like Free People, Quay Australia, Wildfox, Vanessa Mooney, Raga, and Rifle Paper Co. to name a few. They have a location in La Dolce Piazza in Chico, CA so if you're in the area, make sure to stop by!

This Free People sweater from PB&J BOUTIQUE is my go-to. It's so comfy and soft. And the color! Give me all the dusty-blue things please. Aside from all that, I am absolutely smitten with the bell-sleeves. I think they might be my favorite part. Jk, the fact that IT'S ON SALE is my favorite part. Just make sure to size down. I'm wearing a size small here and wish I'd gotten an extra small.

I paired the sweater with some easy boho braids, some frayed blue jeans, platform sandals, layered chokers, and bam. Such a easy weekend look for running errands... or going to a bonfire? haha

I hope you all have a great week!

COLOR SERIES: BEHIND THE SCENES OF A FASHION SHORT


Hey guys! I'm so excited to share a little TBT action with you today! If you remember from a few months ago, I worked on a fun color project with NICOLE TRAVELLER and she created this amazing behind the scenes video. We wanted it each outfit to be a specific color and take on it's own vibe.

I absolutely love working with Nicole because her mind goes to creative places I never knew existed. She pushes me to try new things, and go just a little farther. It's rare for me to find friends that just get my creative vision, who encourage and uplift me to be better. I am so appreciative of the good people in my life who do exactly that. There's nothing quite like it in the world. Now I just have to convince her to move back to the west coast. ;)

If you missed the other posts with the rest of the imagery, I've linked to them below. Let me know what you think! xoxo
