Good friends & good shoes!

“If you don’t think shoes are important, just ask Dorothy and Cinderella.” Anon

Hello friends!

Recently, I had the pleasure of getting to collaborate with a REALLY good friend of mine, the Dallas Mama Blog. I have known Melissa for a longgggg time. We used to have fun sleep overs as kids! She is the sweetest girl you will ever meet & her son Max is absolutely ADORABLE! I can’t thank her enough for collabing with me. IT WAS SO FUN!

Today is about shoes! OH the power of shoes. They have such an effect on an outfit. They can really take an outfit and dress it up or down.

In this post, you’ll see Melissa & I take one outfit and let our shoes completely transform it. It’s magical. haha 🙂

Links to my shoes and outfit will be below! Go to Melissa’s blog to check out her outfit details! 🙂

The cutest boy!

Summer shoes are so fun to shop for. I can’t wait to pair these shoes with more outfits!

Melissa’s shoes were insanely cute and perfect for summer! Her Steve Madden sandals with the pearl studs are mezmorizing! She says they’re incredibly comfortable so we all know thats a major plus!

Her wedges remind me of those Marc Fisher shoes!! I will definitely be looking into those! Find all her outfit and shoe details on her blog.

Here are my details:

I adore these Sandals! They are so fun and really stand out on any outfit. When I’m running out the door with just blue jean shorts and a plain T, these will really add to my outfit. You can also get crafty with the long straps. Little pom poms are quickly becoming my favorite thing.

These heels are from TARGET! Yes. Go get them now! They remind me of Valentino shoes! You need them. They really dress up an outfit and don’t cost an arm and a leg. They were also super comfortable for me with the thick heel.

Red, white & blissful

“Like wildflowers; you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.” – E.V.

Hey guys!

Hope you’re having a fantastic week! I have to say, I’m super excited for you to see this outfit! Summer is so fun to me because it’s FULL of color. I’m going to be doing a fun summer haul coming up so get excited!

Now, I actually didn’t intend for this to turn into a patriotic outfit but it just ended up happening. lol With that being said, if you’re already trying to think of an outfit for July 4th… I have a good one for ya 🙂

They have this top in a lot of different colors! I have the color kiss kiss red & I’m definitely thinking of grabbing the blue one.

THESE SHOES. If there is one thing you need… it’s the gladiator heels. Just guess where they’re from…….. wrong! lol TARGET. They have quickly become my favorite pair of summer heels. You’ll be seeing them again. Grab them while you can because they’re on clearance!!

I bought this bag at Nordstrom, I believe last year. It’s the perfect size & I really liked the color, plus it just seems indestructible! I found a gently used one on Tradesy.com, here. Tory Burch still makes this bag in black & brown, here. I REALLY like the brown one…

I’ve had these white jeans from Wet Seal for YEARSSSSSS. I’m definitely in the market for some new ones. I have my eye on these.

Find my earrings here! They’re perfect for summer!

A sky blue dream

“Anyone can find the dirt in someone. Be the one who finds the gold.” -Prov. 11:27

Happy Easter you guys!

I hope you’re having a wonderful evening. I had the best day filled with food, Easter egg hunts (Andy found 30 dollars), loteria bingo (I won!) & lots of family time! I wish every Sunday could be like this.

Now, let’s get to one of my fun spring dresses! Say hello to my new favorite dress.

TaDa!

This dress is too cute! I recently wore it to a wedding and lots of people wanted to know where it was from. This dress could be worn to so many different occasions. To me, it’s such a happy dress!  It also comes in different colors. The pink one is absolutely adorable.

Find the dress here!

I hope you have a fantastic evening! I’m off to go watch the Houston Rockets with Andy’s fam! I’ll talk to you very soon! 🙂

Until next time,

Spring has sprung!

“April showers bring May flowers!”

Feel free to skip all this jibber jabber & scroll to the first picture you see to get right to my first spring outfit of the season!

Now, let’s catch up…

First of all, who doesn’t love spring?!  Sunshine, beautiful flowers, bright colors and Easter! I don’t know about you but I’ve been so ready for spring.  So many things are going to be happening!

Where to start!  I’m throwing my best friend a bridal shower this month and I’ve been a busy busy bee planning that.  I absolutely LOVE planning things like this so I’m excited to see it all come together.  I’ll probably do a little post on it and show you some fun pictures!

I’m also going to Spain in a few months to visit my little brother!!!!  He’ll be studying abroad so I’m coming up with a fun series for that trip.  I’m thinking about vlogging my trip and posting it to share with my family & you, my friends!  We shall seeeee.  You have no idea how excited I am about this!  I’ve never traveled internationally.  If you have any advice please share!

I’m also arranging my best friend’s bachelorette river trip for next month!  That’ll be so fun! I’m thinking of vlogging that too.

If I’m not planning those things, you can find me buried in books.  Once we hit 2017 I started a reading challenge on GoodReads.  My goal, to read 50 books this year.  I’m going on 21 this weekend!  Andy thinks I should raise it to 90 but I’m not so sure about that… if I did that, my life would consist of just pages and stories, but then again, that doesn’t sound so bad to me 🙂  Someone somewhere once said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one.” I feel like I’ve lived so many lives already!  What’s another thousand? lol

Dakota wanted some attention 🙂

I’ve been loving those silky tops from express! I have this top in 4 different colors… I love the look of them with shorts or jeans. Classy on top & casual on the bottom. <3

Top  (On sale right now! Go forth!)

Shorts  (I’m wearing old shorts from target. This is a similar pair that I really like!)

Heels  (These heels are amazing; very comfortable! Just wore them to a casual backyard wedding and they did wonderfully!)

One of my favorite things about spring, besides everything I mentioned above lol… are the spring dresses! I can’t wait for you to see the ones I picked up!

Until next week,

C

Day Dream

“Would you like an adventure now or would you like to have your tea first?” -Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Happy Holidays!!

Wow, it has been a hot minute since I’ve posted. Once school ended for winter break, I’ve just been buried in books! Free time = reading time.  There is always a book in my purse; it’s like old times! I might start writing book reviews because I’m talking about them non stop to people who probably don’t care. Oops! 🙂 I’m a sucker for a good book. If you’re a bookworm like me, I have a GoodReads account! Find me! I put my profile name below so we can connect! See what I’m reading & vise versa! 🙂

Ok, on to the good stuff! For some reason this outfit reminds me of an outfit from the first Stars Movie lol Maybe it’s the colors! I love Star Wars.

Ok anyway, I’m linking everything below. Now, I couldn’t find a few things online but I know they’re in the stores, so just know that! With all these sales, things are just constantly disappearing! Gotta hurry!

Out of an outfit, if there’s one thing that gets me EXTREMELY excited, it’s the boots. I’ve always had a thing for boots! Boots & books fo life!

Alright, I was super happy how my eye shadow came out in this. Don’t judge! Looks great when the eyes are open too but I just thought it looked really cool in this shot!

I couldn’t find the shirt online but I got it from forever 21 recently. Here is a similar & here is another! Can’t beat those prices!

Boots on sale! They have quickly become one of my favorites.

This cardigan was sold out online so I bought this in store on sale at Banana Republic Factory! Go grab it! Here is one online I also like that would go great!

I hope you guys have a great night! IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! I’m taking a small break from reading and I have lots of fun stuff planned so stay tuned! Maybe it’s time to let you read some of the fictional short stories I’ve written! …maybe. 🙂 Until next time!

Sincerely,

C

(For those of you wondering about dad, he’s doing okay. I’ve been contemplating writing a post just about that but I’ve been on the fence about it. I think I may later on. I’m sure other people are going through the same thing and I know it’d feel good for both of us to know that we aren’t alone. Stay tuned & thank you SOOO much for your prayers!)

Fall best dressed!

“The only thing getting “lit” this weekend is my fall scented candle!” (anon)

Hey ya’ll!

Wow. It has been a hot minute since I last posted.  Things got a little crazy with midterms and work and family and I won’t lie I’ve been buried in books, but I’m back! 🙂 AND IT’S FALL! Well, kinda.  It’s not insanely chilly over here but it’s also not 100 degrees so that’s a win to me!  Guys, fall is so exciting and I can’t wait for you to see some great autumnal things I’m putting together!  First, let’s start with this classic fall dress.

This dress is the perfect color for fall! I found it in the Banana Republic Factory store on sale! It was worth the wait. If you’re looking for a classy fall dress, THIS one is perfect, not to mention incredibly comfortable. I paired it with black heels and gold jewelry.

I can’t wait for it to get colder here in Texas!  Hot chocolate, fall candles, a fall blanket, a good book & BOOTS! Yeah, those remind me of fall. Pretty excited over here. It’s the little things. 🙂 Alright, have an amazing night! Talk to you soon.

Love,

Caroline

Northern lights

“If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.” Dolly Parton

Hey guys!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We’re still melting over here in Texas.  This humidity is no joke. On the plus side, I heard it’s good for your skin but don’t quote me on that!

Alright, guess what. Fall is coming!!  Are you excited?  I read that the first day of autumn is September 22!  Here’s a random thought, do you say fall or autumn?  Just curious.  I say fall but I think I like the way Autumn sounds.  Autumn.  Anyway…

Now, I know this isn’t a fall dress but I couldn’t resist.  I debated whether to even talk about it but it’s just too pretty to not share, so here it is!  I give you, northern lights.

Northern Lights Maxi Dress

If I had my own clothing line, you could bet your bottom dollar it would have colorful things like this with magical names.  I can’t get over this name, “Northern lights.”  Gahh I love it! I’m just a sucker for things with fun names.  Alright, I hope you have an amazing week & I will talk to you very soon. Exciting things to come!

Love,

Caroline

More poppin pjs!

“Smile at strangers & you just might change a life.” Steve Maraboli

Hi friends!

Today I’m reminiscing on my summer vacation in Arkansas.  [insert long sigh]  So, I just noticed that I’ve been on a fun, comfy pj pants kick.  I usually go for your typical oversized, soft T shirt and shorts, but for some reason I’m finding myself wanting fun sleepwear. Why? I have no idea. It could be a phase but I feel that with fall around the corner, this phase may only get worse!  Let’s just add fun pj pants to the list of things that make me smile.  It’s the little things ya’ll.

Walk it out

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” Carl Sagan

Hey friend!

How’s your day been?  I’m a little bummed summer is over BUT, the good thing about that… is FALL!  Pretty excited for fall; college football season, fall colors, fall weather & BOOT SEASON!  Yes, I’m so ready for fall.  🙂  Don’t mind this boot lover over here.

One thing I love to do in the fall is go walking.  Yep, not jogging, but straight up, good old fashion walking.  I like doing it after a good work out or after a long day!  It let’s me take in my surroundings and really think about life.  I love it!  Throw on some headphones & play some good music! It’s so calm & relaxing, at least to me it is!

When I was in Arkansas, I took advantage of those steep hills & went walking with my mom and aunt almost every morning, walking & chatting away! <3

I wore an EXTREMELY comfortable outfit on this morning!

Tassel fun

“Be the weirdo who dares to enjoy.”  -Elizabeth Gilbert

Hey friend!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I had a fantastic time visiting family in the beautiful state of Arkansas!  It was the perfect getaway & much needed.

DSC00637

This outfit, I just have to share with you!

It’s so much fun to wear!  Okay, I know I say that a lot but I really don’t know how else to describe it.  Years ago, I never really cared about what I wore; I never let it make me happy.  It’s the little things ya’ll!  Now if I wear something that I think is cute, I let it make me happy; I let myself feel good!  Even if I look like a complete dork, I don’t care!  Life’s too short, let the little things make you happy.  DSC00627

This crop top is sold out at the moment!  It’s a bestseller at ASOS & they usually restock it.  (I’ll keep an eye out for you!)  Here is a similar top I like.  Love this top too!

Got a great deal on these Jeans during the Nordstrom sale! I also REALLY like these jeans. Both fit so good!

This is my favorite hat!  Can go with so much.

This cover up is stunning!  Elle & K are the sweetest boutique & they have adorable things for great prices.  They really treat you like a friend!

These wedges are my favorite!  I also love these!

Kendra Scott earrings just go with everything.  🙂

Alright, have an amazing night ya’ll!  I like to post randomly so don’t forget to subscribe to know when I post!  Your support means so much to me.  Talk to you very soon!

Love,

Caroline
