Hairstyles: Life and Style Linkup

Tuesday, October 21, 2014


Hello lovely ladies! For this week's Life and Style Linkup, we want to see your favorite hairstyles! You've probably noticed I've been on quite the braid kick lately, and this week was no exception. There are countless ways to work a braid into any style, just like Christina did with this side bun and cute mini braid. 

I've been experimenting with the messy fishtail braid, and I love how it looks with a flowy dress like this one from Belle Boutique. The fabric is so beautiful, and how can you not love that gorgeous back detailing?! Perfection!

Roadtrip Checklist

Thursday, October 16, 2014


Chris and I are no strangers to roadtrips. Back when we were dating long-distance, we both made the 16 hour trek from Portland to LA numerous times. LA to Vegas, to San Francisco, to San Diego...it's always been a mix of fun, exhaustion, and countless snacks and games to pass the time.

So how do you make a roadtrip feel more like the vacation, and less like a means to get to a vacation? I've put together a few helpful tips and suggestions to make your next journey on the road EPIC! Or at least help pass the time ;)

Date Night: Life and Style Linkup

Wednesday, October 15, 2014



It's time for the Date Night Linkup! Teaming up with the stylish ladies of Posh Pair to bring you our go-to date night looks. The last few times Chris and I have been out on the town, I've been mixing up some fancy and casual items for a fun twist on date night.

Today I went with this adorable faux leather skirt from the Lauren Conrad LC line at Kohls. If you've never checked it out, she has some great pieces at a very reasonable price. This skirt is on sale for only $35 right now, so don't wait to snatch one up!

Sweater Weather and Fall Boots

Friday, October 10, 2014


It's finally cooled off a little bit (at least after the sun goes down) and I'm loving getting to wear these super cute fold down boots from Belle Boutique. As soon as I saw them, I knew they'd be going to the apple orchard with me sometime soon. I love the plaid detail when you fold down the top, and they are the perfect way to transition some of my summer dresses into Fall. 

Life and Style: Denim

Wednesday, October 8, 2014


Today's linkup with Posh Pair is all about the denim. An all-American classic, it's hard not to love this versatile closet staple. This week I chose to showcase a new pair of boyfriend jeans I snagged from Nordstrom Rack.

Gold Silver and Black Metallic Temporary Tattoo Arm Bands. Pretty Boho Braid with Beach Waves from Design Life Diaries

Who didn't love stick-on tattoos growing up?! Well, now they're back and better than ever with these fun Meta Ink Tattoos! In place of the Disney characters and cheesy designs of our childhood are these boho-chic gold, black, and silver temporary tattoo designs. They are so cute, I love being able to mix and match them. The combinations you can create are basically endless!

Movie in the Park: The Princess Bride

Friday, October 3, 2014


Every time the seasons change, I like looking back on all the fun adventures Chris and I had the past few months. One of my favorite memories this past summer was walking from our house to the park across the street to watch my childhood favorite movie, The Princess Bride. Not only is this movie a classic, but it might be the first movie I started quoting regularly. (Aside from the Newsies!)

I was so excited to go to the show, that I bought our tickets about 3 months in advance. Life gets so busy sometimes that I was not about to let this one pass us by! The day of the movie Chris and I made some homemade popcorn to take with us. We like to cook it in coconut oil, and it's my favorite movie night snack!


Thank you all for your comments and encouraging words!!
Your support means the world to me, I love hearing from you!
