Jacket: Good Night Macaroon c/o | Tank: Nordstrom | Pants: Nordstrom | Shoes: Similar | Earrings: Etsy

Ok but for reals- you try posing for a picture with a RED popsicle in hand, wearing all white in 100 degree weather while your photographer also has a popsicle in his hand and cares more about the popsicle than the photos. Hence the not so pretty laugh and the lack of options to choose to share with you all. I came across Steel City pops in Dallas and fell in love. Especially since Texas heat has been no joke lately, a refreshing tasty popsicle has been the key to my heart. Luckily for us Houstonians, they will be opening on soon in the Heights! So if any of you all want to meet up for a popsicle date, I am your girl.

Now lets talk about this jacket. I know you’re probably thinking ,”You just said its 100 degrees outside, why would you wear a jacket”. Well in Texas it does get that hot but inside we like to use air condition on full blast during summer time. I am always prepared for the summer heat with my outfits but get miserably cold indoors. This jacket is the perfect summer combo. The embroidered details and the cobalt blue is pretty much everything. I got a million and one comments on this bad boy while I was out and about in Dallas last week and I highly recommend it. I love the pop of yellow in this outfit too because BUTTERCUP <3

P.S Get 30% the jacket + anything off the entire store with code: 4julylovegm

ONE MORE DAY UNTIL THE FREAKIN HOLIDAY WEEKEND. CHEERS!

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.
