.teal and orange floral.


I always love to wear a floral print and I just thought this outfit was so playful because how often do you get to sport a backpack?! right?! this adorable backpack bag I snagged during the nordstrom anniversary sale a few weeks back and haven't looked back! I LOVE it. it honestly is HUGE inside and I love the sleek design ;) if I were you .. I'd hop on this backpack train too.




see what I mean about the adorable backpack straps ;) plus the color matched my top which was pretty cool too 




another trend I just won't stop with is the ruffles and bell sleeves! I'll be sharing a ton of pretty options so head to the bottom of my post to see all my picks! :) 






these booties were also from the nordstrom anniversary sale and I'm so happy with them! the only thing is, you've got to wear socks ;) maybe not these particular ones (because ew they're showing!) ;) but I had blisters from the first time I tried breaking them in - new leather and bare feet AND the parade of homes do not mix. learned my lesson there. so socks it is! ;)

thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed the look and let me know if you try the backpack trend??? I just think they're really functional too! especially as a mom - how practical to have a fuss free way to hold your bag!

.designer look for less : burgundy moto + stripes.

designer look for less : burgundy moto jacket

splurge 
jacket // top // jeans // bag // earrings // shoes 

save 
jacket // top // jeans // bag // earrings // shoes 

today's outfit inspiration comes from a fun look I created on the left ;) this entire outfit is from J.Crew and while I LOVE J.Crew I also feel like you can recreate their style using pieces from other retailers that don't cost as much. if you've followed my blog for a while then you know that I love sharing how to get the look for less, so I've linked an entire outfit that is inspired by the J.Crew one :) would you believe me when I say that the 'save' outfit only costs about $160 while the J.Crew 'splurge' look costs about $1,200! that's quite a price difference!! my favorite pieces from the 'save' side are the ballet flats, I think they look adorable - and while they're not Italian leather ;) they still have the same bow and simple detailing that make the J.Crew ones so timeless. 

what do you think?? can you achieve the look for less?? 

thanks for stopping by :) have a great week!

.swim days.


impromptu shoot with my sister from the beginning of summer :) I was feeling daring and didn't have too many swimsuits at the time ;) this was before I went in and purchased my first Albion Fit swimsuit. my sister edited my pictures and took them for me, I'm really going to miss my blogging buddy when she leaves on her mission next month. she has such an eye for her style and does such a great job learning new things to better herself at photography - she just started a youtube channel and does really cool videos! check her out here ;) and her instagram here 






I'll be honest, being in a swimsuit I feel I notice my 'body flaws' more and it's so easy to criticize ourselves, but we are more than our bodies! AND our bodies are fabulous! they do amazing things for us - so while I'm not super tan or toned - I can still wear my suit with confidence :) I can be proud and happy with my body no matter the 'stage' I'm in.
