SXSW Kimono Style

Express// Tank | Kimono | Shorts (0 tts) | Shoes | Earrings

So yesterday bright and early I hoped on a plane to ATX to kick off SXSW! I am so excited to be here and wish I could stay the entire SXSW week because there is so much going on and your girl loves good events + good people! The best way I can describe South By South West (SXSW) is basically a technology conference and music festival. Every festival I go to, I immediately think kimono and comfy shoes. I was in Express the day before trying to find an outfit and this outfit could not be any more perfect for the occasion. I honestly think this “kimono” is classified as a beach cover up online so HEY it’s multi purposeful in my book and I plan on bringing it on my next beach trip too! I also stocked up on the basic spring necessities, these shorts, and this tank. These shorts are actually ahhmazing too because they are the perfect length in the front and longer in the back to show the booty!

Express has been so darn nice to offer $25 off a purchase of $100+ in-store only using the code: 3390. You can find all info here! I also picked up this dress for my trip to LAX this weekend! They has such a great selection of spring pieces that I am excited for and will for sure be back in the store using that discount code!!

Well, happy weekend darlings!!


Casual Week

Top: KNOWONECARES| Shorts: STS Blue | Earrings: Baublebar | Purse: Gaia | Shoes: See by Chloe

Ok confessional time that has nothing to do with the outfit. I have been staying up WAYYYY too late, getting no sleep at all, binging reality JUNK TV. I feel like I’ve spent like 15 hours this week so far on the couch indulging. Since Ted is in Korea for work, I honestly have the TV to myself, and clearly I have no self control haha! I also have had a lot of free time since I have been home for almost a month. We have been taking it VERRRRY slow and it feels good. I am all caught up on everything when usually I am running around like crazy trying to get ready for trips! Today I do leave to Austin for a dinner with Create and Cultivate and from Austin I am going straight to LAX! I am so stinking excited for this next adventure. I have been itching for a trip so here goes nothing! Be sure to follow along on my stories 🙂

Oh & YES these shorts are amazing and this top comes in like 3 colors! Both for a good price too! Happy Thursday!


Baby Blue Dress

Dress: Topshop | Purse: Givenchy | Earrings: Baublebar | Shoes: Sam Edelman

Ok I can’t keep this dress from you all any longer! It is the absolute perfect blue spring dress for your next event coming up! I know so many of yall + some of my dear friends already have snagged it via my IG Stories last week when I shared it. I wore it to date night last week and then ended up at Homegoods and took a mirror selfie and probably got a million and one questions about it. I am wearing a size 4 us and I know this can be flattering on all body types! I can’t recommend this dress enough! I promise to do a try on a session of my favorite spring dresses and this dress will be included!

I am headed to a luncheon today but first, I am working out! Since I leave out of town on Thursday I decided to kick booty today. Then this evening I am headed to a Nordstrom Rack grand opening and I plan to take yall with me!! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
