Hi everyone! Some of you were asking if I could make a post of each individual outfit from my feature on Inspired by This. I was planning to do so already, I just needed to wait for the feature to be posted first on IBT! So here are the deets from this particular look, which is probably my favorite of them all. If you read any of the feature, you know I’m not a fan of boring and my #1 must have in an outfit is comfort.  
I’ve always been such a tomboy…no like, I think I wanted to be one of the guys and it was just not okay. I can remember my sister having a talk with me when I was in 6th grade and she was in 8th grade (at the same school) — she told me I needed to start wearing skirts and dresses because it was totally embarassing that I wore my cowboys jersey and spandex biker shorts to school all the time (thank God for sisters).  Although I finally came into my own, I still have major attachment issues to this sort of look. It’s usually my easy go-to because it’s so effortless to put together and gives a cool vibe in my opinion. I love the laid-back-cool-chic look, so I’m always working to perfect it. The older I get the more attracted I am to simple pieces. This Dry Clean Only top designed by Sincerely Jules (available exclusively at Piperlime) is easily one of my favorite graphic tees at the moment. I also have this & this by the same label and they are the coziest tees you’ve ever felt! [[ I’m wearing an XS for sizing reference]]
 I’m settled in back at home in Dallas and ready for a fun weekend! Hope you have something fun planned, enjoy 🙂

Savvy x Zinke Trunkshow Styling Event

I’m so excited to finally share with you all some photos from this event! If you live in Norman or anywhere close in Oklahoma, you already know that Savvy is one of the best boutiques ever. It’s been a favorite of mine ever since I got to Norman for college, but Savvy recently expanded and it’s now twice the size with a cool new vibe. There style has gone in this new boho chic direction and I’m totally obsesseeeeed.

If you live in Norman or anywhere close in Oklahoma, you already know that Savvy is one of the best boutiques ever. It’s been a favorite of mine ever since I got to Norman for college, but Savvy recently expanded and it’s now twice the size with a cool new vibe. There style has gone in this new boho chic direction and I’m totally obsesseeeeed.
If you had the chance to come out to the event you know it was such a blast. We played dress up in Zinke bikini’s, Savvy’s adorable selection of kimono coverups (they literally have a million to choose from and if I had no self control I would just buy one of each), and gorge jewels.
When Savvy asked me if I wanted to partner up with them to host the Zinke trunkshow at their super cute boutique, it was obviously a no brainer for me. Spring break was just over a week away and although I’m a college graduate, I couldn’t help but want to be in on all the fun spring break shopping!
I couldn’t wait to stop by and hang out for the day/visit with all the college girls about what to wear over Spring Break. It seems like everyone at OU is headed to Cabo this year! Although I’m not headed anywhere exotic next week, I will be in Dallas over the weekend and since the weather has warmed up I’ve got Dallas pool parties on my mind!  Sooo naturally, I couldn’t resist throwing on a couple Zinke swimsuits and taking a few selfies 🙂 What a fun group of girls they have at Savvy, I just love them!
If you weren’t able to make it NO WORRIES — you can contact them via Savvy Facebook and purchase any of the items you see in store over the phone. The bikini’s are going QUICK though, they had to re-order in the first few days, so get on it!

Spring Break Essentials

Hey Y’all! It feels so good to be back writing on here, but it feels even more good that Spring Break is just around the corner!! Believe it or not, I’m 3 years graduated from college and I still count down the days. I can remember in college counting down literally the minutes until I’d be on my flight to some tropical destination. Unfortunately this year my vacay is nowhere near tropical, but I will be spending it with family/friends back at home in Texas and I’m always excited about that. Praying for good, warm weather so I can hit the hott pool parties while I’m in Dallas.

One of my favorite things about any sort of vacation is planning my outfits and packing (way too far) at least a week in advance. This is why I have put together a list of things that are must-haves and my beach destination essentials!

  • Fedora Hat  & Face Sunscreen are must-have/essential. Obviously the fedora is the chicest final touch to your beach outfit, but more importantly it will help block your face from the sun. This face sunscreen is my absolute fave. Now that I’m getting older (almost 25, yikes) I’m realizing how silly I was to be so careless with my skin on past vacations. As my mom always told me, “put your sunscreen on and wear a hat or you’re going to have leathery skin when you get older!” …she’s 52 and still a smoking hott babe. She’s always taken great care of her skin so I’ll take her word for it and you should too 🙂
  • On the rest of your body, feel free to use this incredible Beach Tanning Oil  by the one and only Bobbi Brown. Smells dreamy and gives you some extra shine to soak up those rays!
  • Why the Leopard Tory Burch Phone Case? Well because leopard print is so chic for one. But the real reason fo this being included in the essentials list is because I am famoooous for dropping my phone and I know I cant be the only one. No body wants to be walking around with a tacky cracked screen, right? (side note: water proof case would be a million times better but they’re too bulky = ew)
  • These Taylor Headphones because first of all I’m obsessed with the white/rose gold combo. And secondly, let’s admit it…. you can only read so many magazinea while laying out in the sun until you get bored and want to take a nap. The perfect humdinger.
  • I’m loving the ‘1, 2, or 5 rings on all 10 fingers’ at the moment as well as the stacked bracelets. I think they’re a perfect dainty accessory, but not overboard for when heading to the beach (you deff don’t want to be that girl if you know what I mean).
  • I always have to be wearing a watch. If I dont, I feel naked. This Nixon Watch is my latest addition to my collection c/o my sweet boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. He did gooood.
  • Tory Burch Perfume because only if you aren’t human will you not shed a drop of sweat during your time at the beach. Freshen up, roll it on your wrists and neck. No dudes like stinky girls!
  • This YSL Lipstick  is my favorite at the moment per Sincerely Jules recommendantion. I don’t even know why they call it ‘lipstick’ because it’s more like a shiney chapstick, not quite a gloss, and not dry enough for a lipstick. It’s just heaven on your lips and gives you the perf amount of color for the beach. Understated. Less is more.
  • Loving these fun heart glasses and quite honestly obsessed with all of the RAEN Optics Sunglasses this year. Either one..you can’t lose. Add this uber cute Rebecca Minkoff Sunglass Case just because the hott pop of color (and to prevent sand scratches!)
  • White polish, especially this starc white polish by Essie called ‘Blanc’ is definitely on trend and great for making that skin look extra dark at the beach!
  • Sandals of course, I usually live in my Tory Burch flip flops while on vacation. They’re easy, comfortable, and so affordable. The print she released this spring are so lovely. Get.on.it.
  • This Crossbody Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag has just enough room to stash your essentials for the day. And how amaze is this hot peach color?? In love.
  • And last but most definitely not least, your bikini..duh! My favorite bikini’s this year are by far Zinke Swimwear. I was so happy to get my hands on this turquoise ruffled top and the precious side ties on the bottoms from a lovely boutique called Savvy here in Norman.
