Eeekk! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started yesterday and I am so excited to share my picks with you guys! I know I am a day late, but we have been SO busy moving! I am going to make a tab at the top of my blog with all the different categories that I will keep updated so y’all can always refer to that! I’m sure you’ve heard from everyone but if you like an item, buy fast! Things sell out SO quickly! Happy shopping!
Hi friends! I’m back with another jumpsuit! Surprised? You shouldn’t be! I am obsessed with jumpsuits!! They are so effortless and make you look so put together. The material of this one is so airy and light which makes if perfect for the hot summer months. I love the flower detailing on this one with the color, and the tie on the front adds the perfect touch. This one is a little more expensive than I usually like to spend but is definitely worth it! I’ll link a few more below that I am loving! I paired this one with these wedges, and this clutch. I also found these earrings the other day that are so cute on and only $22!
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! Patrick and I spent the day packing! We are having a little going away party on Saturday with some of our closest friends, and then we leave to Georgia on Monday! I can’t believe how fast it’s going! Please keep us in your prayers for a smooth transition to Georgia, and thank you for stopping by!
Hi friends! The Fourth of July is a week away and I am SO excited to celebrate this weekend! Patrick and I are going to the beach with some friends this weekend! I personally love this holiday because it is so fun to dress the part! I love everything gingham, stars, stripes and polka-dots and of course all the red, white and blue.
I love these fun shorts that are under $20 that I have on in the pictures above and I am obsessed with this tank! I love a good white tank because you can seriously wear them with anything. It’s definitely a great investment piece. I have put together a Fourth of July Inspo board for you guys as well with some of the cutest pieces!
What’s everyones plans for the fourth? I hate that it’s in the middle of the week, but we are still going to make the best of it! Are y’all celebrating this weekend or next weekend? Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great week!
As you can tell by the title of this post and by my instagram post, after a year of living in Houston , we’re moving to Georgia! Patrick got an amazing new job and I am SO proud of him. We’re excited and scared, me mostly scared (HA!), but we are excited for a new adventure. We will definitely miss our house we are in now! It was the first house we moved into together and is so special to us.
Patrick grew up in South Carolina and Pennsylvania and didn’t move to Texas until high school so the area is home to him! I have grown up and lived in Texas my whole life, so this is definitely new to me but I know this is the best step for Patrick in his career and for our family. I am excited to see a new part of the U.S. and to go on this new adventure with Patrick. We went a few weeks ago and found our new house, and I am SO excited about it! I can’t wait to show y’all when we finally move in. Our house right now is an absolute wreck from packing y’all. I am SO ready to be unpacked in our new house.
Patrick’s new office will technically be in South Carolina so we will be in north Georgia. I am on the search for a new photographer in the area so if you know of anyone, please let me know! I am so excited to take y’all along on this adventure.
If y’all want to know the truth, I have cried more days than not because this is all so new and foreign to me, but I know (hope) we will get out there and love the experience and love finding new things! Moving states away from our family’s is hard and we are nervous but excited to make new memories as a family of our own. Texas, we’ll be back!
Thanks for stopping by, and I would love and appreciate it if you guys could keep us in your prayers as we embark on this journey! Thanks in advance guys!!
Everything and anything that’s casual and comfy, I’m all in!! You can wear this top with jean shorts like I did hear or you can pair it wither nicer linen pants and heels for a dressier look! I love this top because it has a longer part in the front that is made to tie up! It’s a good price point too! I have on the Small here and I would say it fits true to size. This one will definitely be on repeat! I paired it with jean shorts and these sandals, which I LOVE! They truly are worth every penny paid!
My mom is in town this weekend helping me around the house with a few things. My grandparents are also coming to town tonight. What are y’alls plans for this weekend?! I hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy finally FRIDAY!!
Y’all, I can’t even tell you how hot it was taking these photos! I swear I was dripping sweat! The first day of summer is almost here and I will definitely be wearing little dresses and rompers all summer long! They are so easy, but they make you look so put together. I love the ruffle details and open back on this one. I have a small and it fits true to size. The straps are also adjustable! Yellow is such a trendy color right now and it’s a color that looks good on everyone! Anytime I see this color, I immediately gravitate towards it. I paired it with these shoes and this clutch. I’m sharing some of my other favorite dresses and rompers for summer down below.
Happy Monday guys! Patrick and I had such a great weekend with my parents on the island. A day of fishing and riding on the sea doo was such a good little getaway. Thanks for stopping by, and as always please reach out to me if you have any questions!
My dad has always been my best friend. We are seriously the same person. People always say I look like my mom but act like my dad. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or bad thing! Ha just kidding! My dad is seriously the best. I could not even dream of having a better dad. He is so loving, and will do just about anything for anyone. There is not a person in the world that doesn’t like my dad. He knows just about everyone around where I grew up and I have never heard one person say a bad thing about him! He’s truly the best and I feel so blessed to have been raised by him! I hope one day Patrick and I can use the things he has taught me to raise our own kids! I wanted to share three things my dad taught me growing up that have always stuck with me.
Take your credit cards and cut them up and throw them away. So, my dad works at a bank so he has always taught my sister and I how to handle our money. He has instilled in us how we need to save and has always said credit cards are nothing but trouble. Credit cards can be a good thing obviously because you need credit to buy a car or house or anything big like that, BUT in all reality I see so many people get themselves into trouble with credit cards. Putting a car or bills in your name builds more credit anyways! So many people get credit cards and things they are doing so much good to try and build credit and then they rake up their bill and can’t pay it each month and it ends up hurting you more than helping you! So basically, save money and pay your stuff off when you buy it! If you can’t afford it then, save up and pay for it when you can pay it all at once!
Find a church and do your best to go every Sunday. Growing up, my family was extremely close and we went to church every Sunday and then went to lunch as a family. Looking back, this truly was my favorite day of the week. My sister and I were SO busy with school, cheerleading and 4H during the week and most weekends so taking that one day to do something as a family was great. I’m not gonna lie, Patrick and I have been so bad about going to church since we moved to Houston because we have been SO busy non stop but I was actually just telling him the other day that now that things have calmed down, we are going to start going. It is such a good time to talk to God about what’s on your mind and let him know what’s going on in your life. Even though there were Sundays when my sister and I didn’t want to wake up and get dressed, I am so glad my dad was so firm on this.
Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something. My dad is a go-getter. If he wants something or wants to do something, he’s not gonna stop until he makes it happen. I have always loved this about him and tried to do the same myself. He put himself through college and became successful because he didn’t want to be anything other than that. I was lucky enough to not have to put myself through college, but that just made me realize that you really can do anything you put your mind to no matter what anyone says. There has been plenty of times throughout my life where I have seen my dad succeed and do things others told him that he couldn’t and I am so thankful to have such a strong male figure in my life to look up to. My dad wanted boys so bad, but instead he got two girls and he has always made sure we know that we are just as strong and can do anything that a male can do and to never settle.
I put together a gift guide of some of my dads favorite things below!
Char-Broil The Big Easy Grill: This thing is AMAZING! My dad actually bought Patrick and I one for a wedding gift and I’m obsessed with it! It is so easy to use! I even grill on it sometimes.
Bluetooth Headphones: My parents workout every morning and my dad LOVES his headphones. My sister and I actually got him a pair of bluetooth ones last father’s day and he loves them so much more than regular ones.
Jon Hart Duffle Bag: Y’all, all Jon Hart luggage is amazing. It lasts forever and it seriously worth every penny. I love that you can personalize it and that it all matches. My dad has the set and has never used any other luggage! It’s great to travel with too!
Jon Hart Shave Kit: My dad has had his shave kit for years and it still looks brand new! I actually got Patrick one of these for Christmas a couple years ago and it it perfect. It fits so much!
Monogram BBQ Grill Tools: My dad loves to grill. I love that these are personalized and that there is a case to put them all in!
Maui Jim Sunglasses: This is the only brand of sunglasses my dad wears! They have a great warranty problem so if anything happens to them you can just send them back and have them fixed or replaced. Again these are worth every penny paid.

Hi y’all!! Happy Monday! I hope everyone has had a great start to their week so far! Patrick and I are currently sitting in the airport with a delayed flight back to Texas! I just want to get home to my pups!!! Anyone else a psycho dog mom when you leave your dogs with someone? Lol. I definitely am.
SO onto this outfit. You guys have probably seen this bodysuit so many times. I saw a few of my favorite bloggers with it and I loved it on them so I immediately bought it myself. Holy macaroni, I am obsessed with this thing. It goes with any bottoms, and I mean ANY bottoms. Whether its jean shorts, paperbag shorts, jeans, flowy pants it all looks so cute! It is so comfortable too. The fit is amazing, and it isn’t too tight where its feels uncomfortable. I am obsessed with the ruffle sleeves. It is the perfect feminine touch! The material is thick enough where it isn’t see through. I have a strapless bra on with it here but you can easily where a regular bra with it and not have to worry about it showing.
I paired it with these jean shorts from Target, and these amazing brown wedges. You have probably seen so many people rave about these as well. They are under $80, so easy to walk in, and extremely comfortable. If you’re going to buy one item of clothing to get you through summer, this bodysuit is it! Oh, and did I mention it’s only $35!!! Totally worth it!
Y’all, when I got in my car today the temperature said 100 degrees. Summer is here and sleeveless tops and shorts are all I have been wearing! There is TONS of cute tops out there right now. I have gathered a few of my favorites for y’all and put them down below including this blush off-the-shoulder crop top that is only $25! I love crop tops because they look so cute with high waisted shorts and you don’t have to worry about a top hanging down over your shorts or pants!
This top looks so cute with shorts, jeans, and I LOVE it with white shorts and jeans. I actually planned to shoot it with white shorts and then forgot to put them in my bag so I paired it with these jeans and these wedges. I can’t say enough good things about these shoes. I’m about to order them in 2 other colors! They are so comfortable and truly go with everything.
Happy Monday! I hope everyday had a great day and a great start to their week! Patrick and I are headed to Georgia this weekend for a quick weekend trip! What are you guys doing this week and weekend? Let me know down below!
