Dotted Denim

Today I had an absolute blast hanging out with my beautiful cousin! As soon as I saw her I loved her outfit and new it HAD to appear on my blog! So this blog post features my amazing cousin Heidi!
I fell in love with this dotted denim shirt and love how she paired it with a simple black maxi skirt.
I absolutely loved her bling today! Love her monogram ring!
I have to tell you, before today I was not really a fan of gladiator sandals however with this outfit she completely rocked them!
I am overall in love with this outfit!!!
 
I love my cousin so very much and am so blessed to be able to share my love of fashion with her! Thanks for letting me go all paparazzi on you Heidi, you took it well! :)

MissMe Love!

Living near the mountains has its awesome advantages. One being that I live very close to some pretty neat little towns! This is definitely one of them.  I drove here with my mom the other day and had a blast with this old gas station as a background.
Who doesn't love the color yellow??
To say I love MissMe Jeans is a serious understatement! I am absolutely obsessed with them and my closet proves it! I love this pair particularly because of its wash out patterns! Just enough distress for me!
I paired my MissMe Jeans with this awesome jacket by Jennifer Lopez! I am obsessed with this color mix!
 Coral is the color of the season and I incorporate it as much as possible.  This nude jacket was the perfect fit!
 
Have a great night!

Fire Engine Red!

So tonight is the big night! Lights, Camera, Fashion will finally be happening! I couldn't be more proud of this group of ladies to help turn this dream into a reality.  Our fashion show is not only a showcase of our Communication skills but also a reflection of hard work and dedication! Let the games begin! Tonight I decided to go with a very bold statement outfit! What better color than red to make it stand out from the rest!
Saying that I'm obsessed with this outfit is a severe understatement! I have become a huge fan of the color red over the years and this outfit shows why!
I love how the contrast between bold and trendy! Its always important to have a signature piece like this sweater (here)  to make everything bold. Target once again never lets me down!
These shoes are my new obsession! I had never heard of Lulu's till the LuckyFABB Conference a few weeks ago, however now I'm addicted! (these) are such a good price and such an awesome find!
I decided to top off this bold outfit with a bold lip color.  Immediately after putting this on I had a Marilyn Monroe kiss face moment in my bathroom! There is just something about red lip gloss that makes you feel pretty!
 
Hope everyone enjoys this gorgeous sunny day! Special thanks to my parents for the early graduation present! A new DSLR camera! You both rock! (This post was shot with it! Nikon D5100)

Caution! Bold on the Blog!

Heading into spring there is a transition period where I feel it is completely acceptable to still wear black! I added a pop of color (green) underneath to make sure that it looks bright and vibrant! Don't forget to add a statement necklace to really make yourself stand out!
Some would say I love drama, but only on my eyes! I love to use smokey eyes to make my look become even more intense!
 
I shot this at an old little church in one of my favorite towns to pass through on the way to the mountains. I'm pretty sure this is a great outfit to wear to church. It is a bold statement but still very classy.
Love this outfit so much! Green is definitely a great accent color!
Have a great day! xoxo

Dirt Road Floral!

What an amazing last two weeks I have had! I was blessed enough to attend a conference in LA sponsored by Lucky Magazine! LuckyFABB 2013 was absolutely amazing! So informative and exciting to be apart of! I gained one new obsession while I was at the conference.... FLORAL! I was never really a fan of floral prints but after seeing many bloggers like myself sporting them I had to give them another try and to be honest, I love them!
This floral shirt has so many intricate details and I am so in LOVE. Love Culture does such a great job at having adorable, vintage looking clothes!
Coral has proven to be the color of the season and I couldn't be more happier! I got this adorable short sleeve sweater at Banana Republic and it was the perfect cover up!
This dirt road was the perfect place to shoot some gorgeous spring time pictures.  One of my favorite roads in our county!
These Charles David shoes are some of my favorite. Such a great sandal that goes with just about everything!
Hope you all enjoy this gorgeous spring day! Don't forget to switch things up a bit and add some color to your outfit!

And That's a Wrap! LuckyFABB!

What a whirl wind of a week! While on spring break last week I got to do so many awesome things! I got to spend Easter with family, see a friend and go to Sea World, then last but definitely not least I went to LuckyFABB which is a Fashion and Beauty Blogging Conference put on by Lucky Magazine! I was so excited!
For day 2 of LuckyFABB, I decided to go a bit more casual! I found this necklace at New York & Co.  I have never received so many compliments! This jacket was an awesome find at JCPenney! (I haven't shopped there in forever and now love their new looks).
I paired this jacket with some jeans from Express and shoes from Charles David.  Lets not forget about this gorgeous clutch from Target! I absolutely loved getting to know Mara! She is such a talented blogger and an even sweeter person! Check out her blog (here)! While standing in line to get into the conference we were invited to a breakfast sponsored by MissMe Jeans!
It was so inspiring to hear about how to make your blog a point of differentiation. It was such a classy event to attend and was so excited to be included!
I chose a bright orange watch from Target and my favorite bracelet from Tiffany & Co., to add some arm candy.
One of my favorite break out sessions was with Mr. Bruce Grayson! He is the Olay brand ambassador. He also is the head make up artist for all major award shows in LA. He is pretty amazing! I loved hearing his insight on make up and application!
Loved seeing Dylan's Candy Bar at the conference, I definitely over indulged on some candy!
Loved our cocktail hour!
Tacori was so awesome in letting us play with millions of dollars of jewels! So lovely!
 
Well what a week it was! Absolutely loved every single part of it! Spending time with family was definitely a highlight too! So blessed! Have a great day!

Lucky FABB Day 1!

Today I had the pleasure of being surrounded by some VERY talented women! Talk about intimidating!!! Everyone that attended the conference was dressed to the nines! I absolutely loved being apart of this incredible conference and can not wait for day 2, tomorrow! Here are some of the photos I took with my IPhone 5 today!
The conference was held at the gorgeous (did I mention GORGEOUS??) SLS Beverly Hills Hotel! I loved everything about this hotel! From the decor to the food!!!
Are these not the cutest yogurts on the planet???
This photo does not do the hotel justice at all!
Drew Barrymore was such an inspiration to listen to! She truly is a down to earth amazing woman! She has so many different adventures she is involved with!
I will have a separate post for my outfit but the pants are Apt. 9, jacket is Jennifer Lopez and black shirt is from Anthropologie! LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!
Editor of Lucky Magazine, Brandon Holley was also a great speaker! She is so sweet!
 
Today was such an incredible day to hear from all the panel speakers and key note speakers! Truly amazing to hear such great insight on how to build your brand and start a great foundation for where you want to go in the fashion world and in life. 
 
Never settle for anything less than everything you've always wanted!
Until tomorrow, goodnight!
