White Tie Sleeve Top













White Tie Sleeve Off The Shoulder Top - Another similar style - HERE




You really can't go wrong with a classic, crisp white shirt.  Especially an off the shoulder one!
The tie sleeve details give it an extra cute touch and I love the small button details in the back!
This is my kind of easy weekend wear. 

I also can't say enough about this pair of denim.  The softest denim ever and fit oh so perfectly with no stretching out and becoming super baggy and losing their shape by the end of the day.  
Now, they are a cropped fit, but for my 5'3 frame, they are just the perfect "regular" length...haha.  I think if I ever want a true cropped fit, I will need to do some serious alterations.  But I'm happy with the length.

Denim Dress















Denim Dress (under $35 and an extra 30% off today only!)

Sandals // Bag - Similar HERE // Panama Hat // Ray-Ban Sunglasses


I have been looking for a great fitting denim dress with a little detail for the right price....and I totally found it with this dress!
The high neck and shift/swing cut is flattering for any body type.  The frayed hem and pockets are also a great touch to keep it from being such a plain denim dress.

I saw a very similar dress to this that I loved that was near $100!  So when I saw this almost identical one for under $35...I snatched it up immediately!  Such a great staple piece for Summer.  I've also worn it with these wedges for a different look.  Just about anything or any color can be paired with a denim dress.  That's what makes this a great versatile piece! 


Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Red, White, & Blue












Lovers + Friends Off The Should Top - (currently over 50% off!!) - Similar options HERE, HERE, and HERE




I'm definitely feeling a little festive in this red, white, and blue get up!  Can't wait for the longer weekend and 4th of July fun!

Not gunna lie...when I put this on I was feeling in the patriotic spirit...and as soon as I slipped on those aviators...I instantly started singing "Playing With The Boys".  
My husband's a lucky fella for those kind of performances.
And if you knew that was from Top Gun after reading the song title...we just became best friends...  bonus if you started singing it almost immediately also.  

I love this off the shoulder top.  But then I haven't met an off the shoulder top I didn't love.  #truestory.
This one just fits so well.  Has a built in shelf that just compliments everything and keeps it all in place.  Plus, the flowy sleeve and bottom lace detailing are so adorable.

Aside from trying to beat the heat, we look forward to BBQ's, a little family and friend time, and maybe light off a few fireworks!

What plans do you have this holiday weekend??

Finished Backyard Reveal!


After a year of planning, saving, and waiting for the right seasonal months... I'm so ecstatic to say our backyard is finally finished!!!
It was so hard to picture the finished product with all that dirt staring at us...my patience does pay off (as I'm learning) and now I can't even remember what it looked like with the dirt!

I just want to say a big THANK YOU to my amazing husband for all the literal back breaking work he put into to make our backyard oasis absolutely beautiful!  The concrete work (with help from awesome family and friends), flower bed shoveling, and 1,300 sqft of fresh sod.... he truly put so much effort into this. 







Playing ball...this is probably her favorite pass time.  We are always out here from the early hours on the weekend mornings to the later hours in the evening during the week.  Bella Bear can't wait to get outside and play.



She also loooooves playing and rolling around in the sprinklers Daddy installed!  She pretty much thinks they serve no other purpose than for a fun cool down to run back and forth in.







Fire Pit-Table-Cooler Combo // Chairs (Costco) // Patio Set

We love our new patio set!  So comfy to hang out on back here!  And this table on the outer part of the patio is the coolest!  We've used it as a cooler, somewhere to set our drinks, and can't wait to roast s'mores on it!

We added these solar lanterns for decor and plan to add a couple more.  I love the look of lanterns for outside decor!  I will probably add a couple comfy pillows to the chairs as well for a good color pop and texture.



Overalls // Striped Tee - Similar HERE 


Another favorite thing about having our backyard complete...I love the days we sit out back, watch the dog and cat run around, enjoy the view, each other's company, and a nice cold drink.


See our whole backyard progress:
