Dress: Aqua | Jacket: Aqua

Getting dressed during your 3rd trimester could definitely be a struggle. I've been wearing lots of stretchy dresses that show off the bump, so you don't feel like a big hot mess. No joke, I felt skinnier when I was rocking tighter dresses that fit my bod. The 100% exclusive AQUA line at Bloomingdales has an amazing selection of fitted dresses whether your pregs or not... super flattering and affordable. Here's another fav that's perfect for spring!
I also can't get enough of denim.... ever! It's like a crazy obsession I've had since childhood that has stuck with me. This studded number is amazing to style over dresses or shorts for the warmer temps. It adds an edgy vibe to any look. Shop some more of my favs styles below:

Dress: Pam & Gela | Jacket: Sunset & Spring | Sunnies: Quay

The weather's not feeling the spring temps just yet but my wardrobe definitely is. I'm starting to style my fav must-have denim pieces for spring. Such an easy transitional piece to rock for that model off-duty look. The distressed denim and pearl accents compliments the camo printed dress all from the 100% exclusive Bloomingdales collection. Camo is popping up everywhere this spring and I'll definitely be styling this print all season... just think a chic tee, distressed denim or comfy joggers!

Tis the season, so let's amp up your look for your next holiday party! Of course a sparkle dress is cool and all but the accessories that you pair with it really makes the statement. Let's start with the earrings - I'm totally a hoop girl... gold or rose gold hoops are life! It's a staple all year round but is definitely on rotation during the holidays too. As for the arm party, stack on the bracelets or opt for a statement cuff. I went for a dainty, chic and classic look by styling the Eklat & Rubric collection from Tous. They have timeless pieces that are perfect for any holiday party plus you can rock them post holiday season.. it's a win win! OK you need to get yourself a festive bag to pull the look together. Think sequins, metallic or anything with some shine. I'm all about taking it to the next level... so just go for it. Also check out a special holiday love story here
Wishing you and your family an amazing and special holiday season. Xx

Ok let me break it down for you ladies... some people are blessed with Victoria Secret model stems and others dream for a leg-lengthening miracle. Well I got you covered with some easy tweaks to achieve the look you want! So location is everything. Always opt for a boot that at least hits your mid-calf or higher (OTK is perfect too) because any boot that stops at your ankle will cut your legs off. Also, pair your boots with a skirt or dress to add some length to your legs or go for a skinny jean that is the same color as your boots (it's an illusion)... knee length skirts/dresses are a NO NO! Always rock heels... no model walks the runway in a flat and neither should you when you're strutting your stuff on the streets!

Boots are Charles by Charles David Alberta Bootie and can be purchased at DSW.

I'm a big fan of metallics right now. I mean you totally take it to the next level when you rock an all metallic look. I definitely went over the top with a head to toe silver and gold/copper outfit but I just couldn't resist. To add to this vibe I layered on the new Tous Medallion collection. I chose all rose gold and black pieces to go with the edgy feel. The really cool thing about these necklaces are they are custom... so you can add the charms of your choice and mix up the colors to go with your look. I went with the more is more mentality and included a bunch of charms. What I really love about Tous jewelry is that you can just mix and match all the styles and create the perfect look for any occasion. Let's just say this is the perfect holiday gift... men yaa hear me?!

Growing up reading basically every fashion magazine always gave me serious hair inspo. I mean page after page was hair GOALS! When I decided to go to University of Florida for college, I knew I needed a major update. I was becoming an adult and living on my own for the first time, so I was ready for a change. I wanted to feel like myself but exude a level of confidence that shined through! Yes, that's the moment that I went blonde. You know what they say... blondes have more fun, so there was no better time. I owned my new look and never turned back! So when you're approaching a big milestone in your life, switching up something as simple as your hairstyle can really boost your self-esteem and elevate your look  You can always find me rocking beachy waves which aligns with my free-spirit vibe and effortlessly chic style. I'm most confident when I can let my hair down and just go with the flow! So invest in your hair, it's the crown you never take off! xx

Jacket: River Island | Shorts: River Island | Crop Top: River Island | Booties: River Island 

OK I'm going to make getting dressed in the AM super easy for you... ready for it - matching sets! It's the effortlessly chic and easy way to look put together while cutting down major time in the morning.  We have definitely seen this matchy matchy trend before but it's totally making a comeback.
This flowery set is from River Island - the one stop shop for affordable, sexy trends for every girl! I don't typically gravitate towards a flowery print but I love how it looks with lace booties and a crop top, making it a bit more edgy. And for the ice cream cone... duh that's a necessity to close out the summer! Ya feel me?! Xx

Jacket: River Island, similar | Shoes: River Island 

DENIM GOALS!! I'm always a big fan of denim but this piece really takes it to the next level. The embroidery and charms are so major and unlike anything I own. I kept the rest of the look simple with a white crop and denim cut-off shorts. I can't even believe I'm starting to rock boots again. I don't want to rush the end of the summer, but reality is we're only a few weeks away from September! Anyway I do love a lace up bootie with shorts... very downtown chic. BTW these boots are the perfect transition from summer to fall and the heel is ideal for running around the city. Best part is.... they are super affordable! I'm sure I'll be living in these all season. 
Hope you guys are having an amazing summer. Thanks again for all your support loves! X

OMG where do I even begin! At the beginning of the summer, I traveled to Arizona with my blogger babes and experienced the most epic trip. I feel so fortunate to be able to travel to such inspirational and truly one of a kind places. We really got to learn the history behind Phoenix and explore the scenic mountains and desert that make up the beautiful state! 

On the first day we went to the David Wright House to celebrate Frank Lloyd Wright 150th Birthday. If you're not familiar with Frank Lloyd Wright (don't worry I'm totally not judging you) he was an incredible architect, interior designer, educator and truly a legend! They created a gorgeous balloon installation in his honor - yes envision the stunning decor that you see on pinterest... jaw to the floor type of thing! We shot pics early in the morning before it was open to the public - the backdrop was serious GOALS!!

The next day we experienced something I've always dreamed of! We had an early wake up call in order to beat the heat and took a helicopter tour of the Valley over the lakes and the cacti. We learned how they kept the grounds hydrated and healthy in such extreme dry temps! Major props for making this crazy desert livable! In the afternoon, we went back to the hotel and explored the grounds and had a pool day which ended with massages... basically the perfect day! We stayed at the Royal Palm Hotel which mirrored a luxurious hotel in Spain. It was absolutely flawless and captured the amazing architecture of Phoenix. We each had our own bungalows filled with endless champagne and lots of goodies... yep they definitely spoiled us! And the food at the restaurant TCooks. was beyond...! It was so delicious that we had 2 dinners and 2 lunches there and we were only there for 4 days HAHA! 

Our last full day in Phoenix, we had brunch at Olive and Ivy along the Canal in Old Town Scottsdale and we were greeted by a man named "Minister Of Sunshine" . Yes his personality mirrored his name exactly! We discussed all things blogging and how this industry is ever-changing and growing and shared all of our exciting career updates. He was very intrigued and inspired by all our hard work! The afternoon was probably one of my absolute favs! We toured Taliesin West in a jeep and explored the private shelters in the Sonoran Desert where the Taliesin graduates designed each unique structure. The crazy part was, students lived in these "shelters" for a few months in the winter as part of their college program. Think about it, these shelters had... no bathrooms or showers (communal ones at the front entrance), no wifi, no tvs... I could go on but you get the idea. Seems almost unlivable but the students made it work! We took the most insane shots hanging from the architecture as the cacti filled the backdrop. BTW it was also 110 degrees.... major desert moment! It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. 

Before we headed to the airport we had two more final stops. First included food... of course! We had an amazing "Thank You" brunch at the offices of the Southwest Cultural Tour group. We completed our trip with a delicious homemade brunch and a little more history of Phoenix. Our last stop was at the Heard Museum, where they closed down the museum to give us a private tour of the Frida Kahlo exhibit. She was a true fashionista who rocked flowers in her hair and bold one of a kind jewels... a true vision!  

This was definitely a trip for the books! If you haven't had a chance to visit Phoenix  yet I would definitely push it to the top of your bucket list! 
Thank you to the sponsors who made our experience one we will never forget! XO
