I am absolutely loving this relaxed look with the addition of some strappy heels! The heels completely make the outfit & take it a step above casual but still daytime appropriate. I am also loving strappy heels//sandals. You will see a couple more pairs make an appearance on here soon :) I'm off to the Reward Style conference today in Dallas, TX & could not be more excited!

Pink & Denim

Dress: H&M similar Here - Denim Shirt: Asos similar Here & Here - Shoes: Converse via Nordstrom - Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs similar Here - Bracelet: J.Crew - Necklace: c/o Wild Butterfly Boutique (on sale!) - "K" Ring: Lush Jewelry - Sunglasses: Target similar Here & Here



 I love putting a spin on the classic feminine look by wearing it with something unexpected. I loved the way my white converse looked with this pink dress! Plus, they were the perfect shoes to run errands in all day :) I threw on a denim button up over top because it was a bit chilly in stores & I really love the way it looked. I rarely wear bright pink anything because I kind of feel like a Barbie in it but I was surprised by how much I loved this dress (thanks momma :)) & will definitely be wearing it more this Summer! OH & can you tell I'm loving rings lately? My new favorite is my "K" ring (for Kannon)! I'm obsessed to say the least! Hope you all got through the case of the Monday's! Here's to a great week ahead!

Easter 2014

 This is just a little peek into our Easter this year. Unfortunately Kannon has been sick for 4 days with fever & I started feeling sick yesterday as well. So we spent our Easter in pajamas munching on our yummy goodies the Easter Bunny brought us ;) We decided we are going to still dress up in our Easter best & take photos though when everyone is on the mend this week so stay tuned for those!
 Back to the baskets though.. Growing up, our Easter baskets were always very extravagant (some say it was the Easter Bunny but we all know it was my mom going all out, she always goes all out for any holiday & I'm trying to follow in her footsteps:)). We usually spend Easter with my family but this year we all were apart & it was slightly unusual. I'm glad we at least had the 3 of us together!  Anyways, we usually have a ton of candy in our baskets but with Kannon now, we try to get other things. As you can see above, we have books & little toys & some healthier bunny fruit snacks & grahams. We obviously still have sweet goodies (it is tradition after all), just not as much as we normally have.
I also wanted to do something sweet for our family members that we couldn't spend the day with & so I made some amazing cards from Treat greeting cards!  If you haven't heard of Treat, they are apart of Shutterfly & basically the greatest creation everrrr. I am always going off about how I order everything online & couldn't be happier that I can now order custom cards online as well. Shopping for cards at the store is so last year... I mean, who has time for that!? I sure don't! Plus, they have THE cutest cards & they are so easy to make. Who doesn't love that? Especially when they have adorable photos of a baby in bunny ears :) You can bet that I'll be purchasing all of my future cards from Treat!
What are some of your Easter traditions? Do you guys do Easter baskets? As much as we love the whole Easter Bunny thing, we are religious & spend the day thinking about how blessed we are & how thankful we are for our Savior, Jesus Christ, & the atoning sacrifice He made for us. That is the true meaning of Easter & is definitely not overlooked in our home! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope you all had a wonderful day! Sending love to you all!

A Night Downtown

Dress: c/o Urban Philosophy - Jacket: SheInside - Heels: Zara similar Here & Here - Necklace: Zara - Wristlet: Michael Kors

A while back I wore this dress & promised a post where I "dressed it up". It took me forever for some reason but.. here it is! I still am in love with this dress & think it's perfect for day or night. The lace (which is actually a crochet type lace) is so fun & feminine. I threw on a leather jacket to mix the feminine with a little bit of an edgy vibe. That's my favorite style at the moment :) Anyways, I wore this out for mine an Adam's 4th anniversary dinner (it only took us 2 months to celebrate haha). We went to this amazing restaurant downtown called Mo-Chica & if you're ever in the area, I highly suggest you go! They have THE best food & my favorite fresh juice "mocktails" (you could get real cocktails too ;)). They also have sweet potato beignets that I'm still craving! Below are a few pictures from the restaurant. Hope you guys enjoy!

Lands End

Jacket: c/o Lands' End - Top: c/o Lands' End - Sports Bra: c/o Lands' End - Bottoms: c/o Lands' End - Shoes: Vibrams

If you follow along with my blog, you can clearly tell that I love clothes. I always have & I always will. That doesn't exclude workout clothes either! I absolutely love finding cute & functional workout gear, especially at a great price point. Don't get me wrong, I love me some LuLu Lemon but sometimes struggle spending that kind of money on clothes that I just sweat in haha. I was really excited when I received these clothes from Lands' End because they are not only adorable but great quality as well. In my opinion, you can't beat that!

On another note, I am always getting comments & emails about my workout routine. I did a post a long time ago but will do an updated one. What exactly would you all like me to include? Actual workout routines? Let me know! :)
