If there is an outfit that defines who I am, this would be one of them. I am a huge fan of cute little skirts and this bright orange peplum skirt stole my heart. I always seem to go for white bodysuits paired with my skirts, which you can never go wrong. Here is an example of a skirt + a white bodysuit look I did for NYFW that I will never forget. I also saw a couple girls at the conference wear this skirt with this jacket. I now need to order the jacket to match the skirt because I am obsessed. The jacket would have been perfect for the cold nights we had!

I wore this look to the opening night of the Reward Style Conference, which I have been at all weekend. It was a pool party hosted by Sole Society at our hotel and the bright orange really did work with the theme! Anyways, I am poopied and sorry for this being so late today! I came straight home to a sick puppy who thankfully was at his grandmas who took care of him. I have lots of unpacking and then repacking to do for a Florida trip I leave too on Thursday! I will be sure to share with you all this week some of my favorite looks from the conference so see you back here tomorrow!

Top: Sanctuary | Jeans: J Brand | Shoes: Tory Burch | Bag: Florabella | Earrings: Bauble Bar

I wear this top way to much for its own good. I actually got it back in February and tried wearing it all the time but was so intimidated by the color. It comes in 6 other colors and is a good basic OTS for your closet. The strawberry color is perfect for now April and I love it paired with white denim. These are my new fav white jeans and I love love them!

I am keeping it short and sweet today since I am at the Reward Style conference. It’s crazy how this was my goal a year ago and I am here. So much to learn and so much to see. I can’t wait to learn everything and bring it back to this baby space of the blog!

Crushing on Cactus Print

First came polka dots, then came cactus print. I mean who doesn’t love a good ol cactus print? I got weirdly fascinated with cactus’s in Cabo when I saw GIANT ones for the first time. They are the cutest little things and can be found on just about anything. I am extremely obsessed with this sweater, which is already sold out on all other websites, and these pj shorts. I definitely need to make a Target order for this mat bc look at that price! Oh and neck scarves are also what I have been crushing on and a huge trend at the moment.

What print do you think will come next? Happy Thursday babes! I am off to the RS conference and couldn’t be more excited! I shared yesterday on IG stories some of the items that came in that I am packing so be sure to watch that here, before times up!

Swallow Maxi

Maxi: Hinge | Hat: Sole Society | Shoes: Marc Fisher | Earrings: Loves Affect | Purse: Gucci | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Bauble Bar

I wore this outfit to my sister in laws baby shower a couple weekends ago and I got so many compliments. I was surprised at myself for ordering a maxi dress since I haven’t wore / own one in years. I haven’t been crazy about them until this one came along! I love the V cut and light blue color. It has a bohemian / Coachella inspiration print with the birds and I LOVE swallows. I actually have a swallow tattoo on my rib cage. I always have had this odd appreciation  for birds and swallows in particular. In like 8th grade I knew I wanted a swallow as a tattoo. I couldn’t really answer why a swallow at the time until Freshman year of college when my dad passed away. Dad reminded me of a bird, free spirited, and not a care in the world. He lived such a simple life and when he passed away, I felt like he was free. He was no longer caged into the world but free with our Heavenly Father. That’s the summarized short version of course but why a swallow print means so much to me and reminds me of dad! Even on a dress lol!

 I am gearing up for the Reward Style conference and there is so much to do. I shared on snapchat how I am peeling BAD from Cabo so I am trying to figure out how to fix this mess. I need to find outfits that will cover my arms until it fixes on its own. Coconut butter, lotions, oils, baths, etc have been my best friend this entire week! None the less I am so incredibly grateful to be invited to this conference. It was one of my biggest goals when starting the blog so receiving an invitation was such a big deal to me.
