Summer Wedding Guest

Happy June babes! And with that, wedding season is upon us! I have 4 weddings (one down, three to go!) on my calendar this summer alone! I got off lucky with the first- I was a bridesmaid so my outfit was decided on months ago. As for the next three… ooh. Not so sure yet.

So obviously I’ve been on the hunt for some great pieces I can snag. If summer weddings – or honestly, any dressy summer parties in general- are on your agenda this year, check out these five fun and chic pieces!

ONE.  Shoulder Tie Lace Dress
Honestly for me, one of my fave things about clothing in general is fun sleeves! No matter what the season, I’m always down to have a unique sleeve moment. I think it just adds an extra element of chic to any look. That being said, I think this feminine tie sleeve dress is perfect for a wedding that’s more on the formal side!

Summertime means vacation (hopefully!) and with that, travel! If you aren’t properly prepared, an uncomfortable flight can set even the most exciting trip off on a sour note. And no one wants that, right?

Between going to college out of state for four years and traveling abroad for a semester, I’ve definitely picked up tips and tricks to make airport travel a little more relaxing (well, as relaxing as it can be).

Two weeks ago Carl and I traveled back to Ohio to be in my friend’s wedding and we spent Memorial Day Weekend road tripping up to San Francisco. Regardless of whether you’re traveling by plane or car, there are a few essentials that are a must.

Happy Monday!

This past weekend, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the power of positivity and gratitude in my life. I’ve always been a person who naturally looks on the bright side of things, whether things were going great or they were really crappy. I’m coming to realize what a gift that is, even though at times I can get caught up in self-pity and complaining, about big and little things..

But what good does that do? None. Who am I helping by complaining? No one. How is having a pity party for one going to help my situation? Not at all.

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Picks

In case you’ve been busy recovering from a wild start to the new year or just been busy, the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is going on right now and today is the LAST day!

I rounded up a handful of my favorite staple pieces to snag from the sale! Nothing too crazy, but I think these are staple items everyone needs to refresh every so often.

I always clean out my closets and get rid of lesser worn items before the holidays, so this month is definitely going to be a re-stock of new pieces (and grabbing them on sale sounds like a great way to start the year to me!).

Travel Tips

Despite the annoying heat wave hitting us here in San Diego, holiday season is in full swing! Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away, Christmas is 6 and Starbucks has officially unleashed Red Cup season. If that doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit, then I don’t know what will.

Though I’m lucky enough to have family within driving distance, I’ve spent my fair share of time doing long distance traveling. From flying and driving across country over my four years in college and a semester of travel abroad in Europe, I’ve clocked in plenty of far travel. By no means have I totally mastered the travel game (i.e. the time I forgot my ID at home and didn’t realize it until I was in the security line at the airport… yikes), here are a few of my tips and tricks for all you babes who are logging some major travel miles this holiday season.
