When I think sundress I think bright fun colors, a high messy bun, strappy sandals and some big ol glasses to complete a summer look. I did just that and this look is no exception to making my heart so happy that summer is here. A strappy cold shoulder look and these strappy sandals are the perfect pair. I wear these high heels a lot and luckily Nordstrom is price matching for under $70. I recommend snatching them while you can because they are the comfiest high heels I own. Nordstrom obviously has captured my heart for many reasons including price matching but the free shipping and returns gets me every time. 

Happy hump day lovers. I really want to say thank you for stoping by. I am not sure what has happened this month but things have been swamped for me. I feel like I am constantly trying to play catch up. I must get my life organized – especially in the midst of crazy Summer season. My friend Jaclyn recommended an app called a-note so I am so excited to check it out! Any tips on staying organized?

Luckily there are about three holidays in the summer that you can celebrate the stars and stripes of this beautiful country and go all out. This land of the free is about celebrating so I say grab a popsicle float + the cutest patriotic one piece you ever did see and celebrate. For obvious reasons I am crushing on red white and blue this week and here are some picks I have had my eye on!

I officially nailed down our plans for this holiday weekend. Friday we will be heading to galveston to pop some of our own fire works. This was a tradition daddy, my sister, and I would do every chance we could get. Him and Katy were such dare devils while I would sit in the car and watch (ha!). I’ll brave it out this Friday and pop some in remembrance of him. Saturday we plan to chill and do absolutely nothing. We haven’t had a Saturday like this in months so we will see how this plan goes. On Sunday the plan is to go to church then immediately after hit the road for some good ol tubbing. Ted and I have tubbed separately multiple times down the river but NEVER together as a married couple. I LOVE the river so I am super excited about this. Then Monday we have a bbq planned with our friends in San Antonio and back home we go!

I will of course be sure to bring you all on Snapchat (dederaad). I am hoping our plans stick but you never know! What do you all have planned this three day weekend?!

A little pink dress and summer go together like a baby and a bottle. It is a much needed item for summer time and instantly makes you feel more girly. It also brings out my somewhat tan which I have been lacking  with Summer 2016 and I need to fix PRONTO. I am so behind on my tan this year and I blame adult hood. None the less when I head to the pool this week to play catch up, this darling pom-pom tote is coming with me. You won’t believe the sale price on this bag and comes in two colors. A straw tote this season is a must and pom-poms make it that much cuter! The dress and tote were both steals from Saks Off Fifth which I highly recommend stopping by for steals on deals.

Happy Happy Monday lovelies! I finally made it back to my bed after spending half  a week in Dallas. It was an amazing trip filled with family, a wedding, brunches, and beautiful people but glad to be back home! Now to start planning this weekend (the party never stops). What do you all have planned for the Fourth? I still am in shock that June is coming to an end.

So I know you’re probably thinking I just shared a romper literally exactly like this on Monday. Why yes I did BUT it wasn’t tie dye and it wasn’t selling out in a blink of an eye so I HAD to share this one before it’s completely sold out. I also am sharing my favorite similar tie dye finds here here and below in the widget. You know my 5’3 self loves me some rompers, especially some long sleeve deep v cut rompers. Sorry for all your tall or big booty ladies, really I am!

I literally had the perfect day yesterday y’all. I am in Dallas visiting family and friends and had a non stop by. I plan to do a recap on my Dallas favs but for now here is a list of what we were up too yesterday

  • Reward Style Meeting: their office is such a dream
  • Hopdoddy: obsessed with their Ahi tuna burger
  • Chase Tower: fail, it was closed until Monday
  • Highland Village: couldn’t afford a thing but window shopped
  • Royal Blue Grocery: the cutest grocery story I ever did see – meet @hkung
  • Steel City Pop: YOU MUST GO HERE. Literally cutest popsicle place ever. They are opening one in Houston and I am so excited. I have been craving a popsicle all month
  • Chuys: Who knew happy hour included a Nacho bar. You must go! 4-7 & cheap drinks
  • Soul Cycle: LOVE LOVE this work out. You must try it if you haven’t! They give you $10 off your first spin. Its like a night club on a bike. Best part is they have clean showers so I could clean up before dinner
  • H&G Supply: Most adorable roof top bar. I met with two blogger babes here and the Kale + Cesar salad is my fav light combo ever

WOW I did a lot haha! I always get so nosey what people are up too when visiting other cities so I hope you enjoyed this little tidbit! Would love to hear your feedback if you are even interested in my travel diaries. Hope y’all have an amazing weekend! Ill be snapping away for the wedding we have on Saturday so be sure to follow along (dederaad).
