top: Madewell || jeans: ASOS || shoes: Nordstrom || hat: Urban Outfitters (love this blue version!) || bracelet: c/o House of Harlow via Rocksbox (get a free subscription with code GOLDENSWANKXOXO)

Hey guys! It's me, just literally dripping sweat in my apartment from every crack of my body. The sad thing is, the air conditioning is definitely on but boob sweat is definitely happening. (TMI? Apologies.)

So that's my life these days. How's yours? ;)

Anyways, can we talk about how you guys probably think I'm pregnant or something? I literally cannot stop wearing/buying swing dresses and loose fitting tops! They are just so dang comfy! And I promise there is no baby on it's way. (Or maybe I'm being a big, old liar right now? Hehe I kid. Pun intended? K I'm stopping now.)

Madewell is Q U E E N when it comes to all things oversized, so when I spotted this top on sale at Nordstrom the other day, I know I was bringing it home with me. It's so pretty in real life and I love the peek-a-boo cut outs on the sleeves and side panels.

Hope you all like this look! You can shop these exact items by clicking on the icons below. xx

jeans: GAP (love these) || top: Madewell (also here, here) || shoes: ASOS (similar here, love here) || hat: ASOS (on SALE!) || sunglasses: from Taiwan (similar here) || purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Oh hi. 

I'm in CA for the week for a blogging conference, and it is such a nice escape from the heat in AZ! (It was 104 the day I left.) All I've been wearing in AZ is lose fitting clothing like this outfit because I hate hate hate the feeling of clothes sticking to skin. Not many things worse. Promise.

Since I now live in a place that is endlessly summer, I am stocking up on some warm weather pieces. Hats and sunglasses are a must for me. Lucky for you, my all time favorite hat shown in this outfit is now on sale! I'm tempted to get another one just because. Weird? Naw. So snatch one up before I buy them all for myself! 

As for sunglasses, I am currently infatuated with these and these. They're a little much (and by that I mean a lot), both in style and price, but they just look so fun! Gah!

Hope everyone has a happy hump day! xoxo

shirt: Madewell || pants: H&M (similar here, love these super distressed jeans) || hat: Urban Outfitters (similar here) || shoes: Forever21 (similar here, love here) || purse: Banana Republic (similar here)

Photos by the amazing Rox B Photography

It was such a treat to have my friend, who happens to be an amazing photographer, in town. Rox from Rox B Photography is such a sweetheart and has such a cool editing style. She is starting up her clientele in Arizona so if you're in the area, make sure you check her out!

Anyways, I know I am late to this game but I have fallen madly in love with Madewell. I never really gave it much attention because a store was never that close to me and it's not the cheapest store out there. But here in Arizona, the shopping is unreal. There is a Madewell, Free People, Anthro, Planet Blue, J. Crew, H&M, Forever21, etcetcetc within 10 minutes of me and let me tell you, it is T R O U B L E! 

I have bought more things from those stores than I ever have before in the last month. I mean, how could I walk away from this mixed-grid shirt? It is perfection. At least when I'm online shopping, I can just close out and tell myself I don't need the items. But when I'm in the store, trying things on, it's like my mind goes to another place and I can't leave without purchasing it. Shopaholic? What? ;)

Happy Monday! A really amazing giveaway is happening here tomorrow. 

Hint: Starts with Taylor, ends with Swift.

A good girls night does the body good and I love what my friends dreamt up! Our girl's night was quite different from the "let's stuff pizza in our faces until we look six months pregnant but good thing we're wearing sweats" girl's nights. This was a "let's get dolled up and surround ourselves with only the prettiest of things and take pics" girl's night. And it was perfect. Everything was so feminine and fun, with delicious treats and beautiful blooms to match. The berry tones and touches of mint make for the prettiest spring color palette. I am just the luckiest to have so many talented friends.
