Happy Tuesday Friends!
Looking so forward to a long weekend. I went from having zero plans to lots of plans. My parents are coming to NC, and I couldn’t be more excited. Love getting to spend the weekend with them!
I am so obsessed with these shorts y’all. I’ve worn them probably every weekend since I got them. They are beyond flattering and look adorable with basically any top I put with them.
Also, how cute are these sunnies? May or may not have scooped them up in 3 different colors. I get so many compliments when I wear them.
I’ve been getting a ton of messages about my workout routine. Message me or DM me if you’d want to see a workout routine post. Or about any type of posts you’d want me to do. I’m open to suggestions ;).

We had the BEST weekend in New Orleans, y’all. I mean check out the view we had from our balcony! I think I literally gained 5 pounds from the sheer amount of beignets and hurricanes I consumed.
I’m going to do a complete post on all of my New Orleans favorites, but I wanted to get this romper up ASAP.
It’s so cute and the perfect mix of dressy casual. I know it’s long sleeved, but the cut outs kept me cool even in the 90+ degree weather this weekend.
Rompers can sometimes be challenging for me because I have a longer torso. But, this one fits pretty true to size (I’m wearing a small) without causing an all day wedgie – If you have a long torso I know you can relate.
I hope you guys have THE best week. I’m already ready for another long weekend 😉

Happy Thursday loves! Today is my Friday and I am so looking forward to a long weekend.
We are heading to New Orleans tomorrow for a high school graduation and I can’t wait. My parent’s best friends moved to New Orleans when I was in middle school and we’ve been visiting ever since. Can’t wait to share some of my favorite New Orleans things with you –
think snow cones, and drive through daiquiris and Sazeracs and beignets!!!
Can you tell I’m a little excited?
Since today is my Friday, I wanted to share an easy weekend look. I am a huge fan of any type of shirt dress. They are seriously so easy to dress up or down. & this one comes in the cutest color. Love that it’s not black or white.
AND the ruched sides make it beyond flattering! AND it’s under $75 bucks.
I always get a million compliments when I wear these wedges. They are ridiculously comfortable. Highly recommend. I own them in three colors now.
I hope you guys have the best weekend. Stay tuned for some New Orleans goodness.

Happy Hump Day Friends!
I wanted to share a little bit about our one day Grand Canyon trip. I seriously did A TON of research beforehand. So many people said don’t do the grand canyon in one day and I’m with them with a caveat. If you’ve never seen Grand Canyon National Park, do not try to do it in one day. You’ll be super bummed and feel like you haven’t seen any of the park. But, if you’re like me and you’ve already seen Grand Canyon National Park, doing the west rim in one day was perfect and I highly recommend.
So let’s dive in. We rented a car in Las Vegas,but you don’t have to. There are tons of different companies that will take you from Vegas to the West Rim. The one I heard the most good things about was the Pink Adventure Tour.
We picked up our rental car bright and early and got on our way. The Vegas sign and Seven Magic Mountains are both on your way to the West Rim. You’ll also pass the Hoover Dam if you want to stop. It takes about 2.5 hours to get to the West Rim.
The West Rim of the Grand Canyon is owned and operated by the Hualapai tribe. When you enter the reservation, you must park and use the shuttle to get to the different look out spots.
Sky Walk is one of the biggest advertised attractions of the West Rim. It does offer seriously breath taking 360 degree views of the West Rim. However, It costs extra $$$ to go stand on it AND you can’t take any of your own pictures. You have to pay for the pictures taken on the Sky Walk. We decided not to walk on the Sky Walk. & honestly, I didn’t regret it. You can stand to the right and left of the Sky Walk and the views are beautiful and we got some great pictures.
Guano Point was my favorite part of our West Rim visit. It’s definitely the best place to do some hiking. The views were just beautiful.
A few words of wisdom: We visited the first week of May and it was HOT. Like 95+ degrees hot. Wear comfortable work out gear and shoes. Bring water. Plan on staying for 3-4 hours to see the entire park and all of the lookout spots.
I hope this guide was helpful if you’re thinking about traveling from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon for the day!

Breaking news in Raleigh tonight!
Ryan Cabrera is in concert tonight. I almost feel like I would be doing myself a disservice by not going. Amirite or amirite?
Don’t mind me while I sing on the way down for the rest of the day. Sorry, not sorry coworkers 😉
How adorable is this dress ya’ll. The color is perfection and it’s a great go to summer dress. It was HOT, HOT in Raleigh this weekend. Like 95+ degrees. I wore this little number to dinner Friday night and it kept me nice and cool and cute.
It’s also $40. Love a good affordable summer staple.
Hope you guys have the best week! Stay tuned for some more cute affordable summer dresses this week!

Happy, Happy Saturday friends. This week flew by and I couldn’t be happier. Need some serious R & R this weekend.
I think I could only do a Vegas weekend once every 5 years. Maybe it was the time change or the lack of sleep, but I still feel like I am recovering 5 days later. Is this what getting older is like? No thank you.
I love love love Shein. This romper is adorable and figure flattering and under $25. Doesn’t get much better than that.
Actually, I love all rompers that I can just throw on and go. They are so easy. &&& this one can be dressed up or down. It looks adorable with sandals and a jean jacket for a more casual look. I wore it to dinner and it was perfect for date night.
We are heading to New Orleans next week for a friend’s graduation. Any suggestions on things to do/see?

Guys, a new love has entered my life.
I feel like this one’s going to last forever. and ever. and ever.
Her name is Celine and I am beyond obsessed ;). I have been coveting a celine luggage bag for basically ever. I think the structure of the bag is super classic.
I went back and forth about the size I wanted for months. The larger sizes make a great everyday bag. But, I ended up picking the nano. I use crossbody bags all the time and I wanted one that was more structured than my Chanel.
Whenever I am thinking about a bag I always use Bag, Borrow or Steal to try it out. If you’ve never heard of BBS – I highly recommend you check them out! If I’m going to make a serious investment, I want to make sure I like it. I rented several of the larger Celines, but ended up going with the nano. In terms of rental prices for BBS – they are relatively affordable (200-300 for a month of use).
I wore this top on Cinco De Mayo and got so many compliments. It’s cute and hides any evidence of two or three tacos 😉
Hope you guys are having the best week!!
DRESS: Ted Baker (sold out) Similar Here and Here │SHOES: Tory Burch │SUNNIES: Ray Ban
While we were in Las Vegas, we trekked out to Seven Magic Mountains.
This super funky two year art exhibit is located about 20 minutes outside of Las Vegas in the middle of the desert. Yes, it’s a little bit of a drive from the strip, but the views are so worth it.
The exhibit consists of seven 35 foot colorfully painted boulder towers.
Ugo Rondinone, a Swiss artist, is responsible for creating this colorful collection. I highly recommend visiting for something a little different during your time in Vegas. The picture opportunities are endless. If you are going to visit – a few words of advice – wear closed toed shoes. There aren’t any bathrooms, so plan ahead. And bring water.
I wore this Ted Baker maxi dress that I absolutely love. It’s older and sold out, but I linked a few similar options. The color is perfect for summer!
Let me know if you have any questions about Seven Magic Mountains!

I had to get this skirt up ASAP. It’s the perfect summer skirt and it’s $9 dollars.
Yes, you read that right. It wasn’t a typo.
IT’S NINE DOLLARS.
I love, love Shein for cute clothes that I know I’m only going to wear a few times. As a general rule, I usually buy two sizes because the sizing can be a little bit all over the place. This skirt is TTS – I’m wearing a small. How cute would this skirt be on vacation? It has me itching to plan another beach vacation. I’ve been eyeing Bermuda for months now.
You guys message me about these shoes every time I wear them.
I’ve looked high and low for them and I just can’t find them anywhere. Stuart Weitzman generally makes a great nude wedge every summer. So, I’m just patiently waiting (read: stalking the site everyday) for a good nude or cork wedge to come out for you guys.
Vegas and Grand Canyon Trip Review coming this week!

Happy Weekend y’all.
The Sunday Scaries haven’t set in yet and I think it’s because we are having the most beautiful weather in Raleigh this weekend! I had to get out and enjoy it.
Obsessing over this adorable top I wore to brunch this weekend. It’s freaking $16 bucks y’all! So adorable for spring and summer. Ruffles and gingham and off the shoulder? Obsessed. It also comes in three colors.
These are my favorite, favorite cropped jeans. They are so flattering. Even on my fattest days (that’s a thing, right?), they are super slimming. Maybe it’s the wash or the cut, but whatever it is, I highly recommend. Any jeans that I can eat endless Mexican in and still feel skinny are a winner in my book.
