Striped Obsession

Hi All!

So I promised more looks from the Palm Springs trip and here it is!! I am super excited to share this outfit with you all. I didn’t realize that lately I’ve been buying a lot of blue and white stripes (no really… a button down shirt, a backless dress, this dress and maybe a few others!).

This outfit was shot at the Riviera Palm Springs Resort. This historic hotel was host to many faces from old Hollywood, such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and even Desi Arnaz had a regular show in their ballroom.


This was the perfect seat to view the pool and all the people lounging around that day!











These shoes were so cute and easy to walk around in. The suede is super soft and the ankle ties make them really fun. They can be found on sale Here !


The property is beautiful and lush. It has all sorts of secret little nooks to take photos in. This dress is one of my newest favorites. The cute but sexy tie front is perfect and can be found here Shein for less than $20!






The outfit was so easy to wear all day at the Blog Rx Retreat and I had a lot of compliments!

Shoes: See above!!

THAT Pink Door


Its really true! We found it lol! It was so that and much more. I did wonder if the owners tire of random bloggers showing up on their front porch basically to shoot pictures, but I mean come on they’re the ones who painted it pink! (practically begging for photo shoots).


I chose this off the shoulder dress to wear special for this shoot. I loved the polka dots on the fabric and the way it moves. This dress is on sale for less than $24!




I think every girl needs a dress just to twirl around in and this was perfect.








Shoes: FOREVER 21 (less than $30!)

Hat:  Mine (sold out); Similar Here

Dress: SHEIN

I hope that you enjoyed this fun Palm Springs landmark as much as I did. It was really a fun weekend adventure that I loved taking with my friend Melissa from @stylistafitness (my official photographer!!) for a blogger retreat called BlogRxRetreat. Watch out for my complete write up on Palm Springs and the BlogRxRetreat!!







So I’m back to real life and started a new job after returning from Palm Springs. I can’t wait to show you all the photos from my trip and cute outfits!! I’m hoping to have one ready for you very soon. In the meantime, this gorgeous beach/pool tote is for you to enjoy!


The tote is from a popular store called Mar y Sol which was influenced by the owner’s trip to Madagascar. There she met the local artisans who handcraft these beautiful bright bags. It is so roomy and the hanging tassels on right on trend!  My hat is from Nordstrom and just sold out but if you check back on their website they usually get some more at times. Here is a Similar one that is super cute too.


Well that is all for tonight! Hope you check back on my Instagram for more on my Palm Springs trip!



Makeup Mini Post

Hello Lovelies!

I’ve been recently branching out a bit more lately with my makeup and trying to learn how to apply it myself. I’ve been insipired by my friend Priscilla, who was my medical assistant and somehow on most days managed to look just GLAM! And now my newest nurse is a MUA by night too! Seriously these gals are both talented.



First I picked up a new eyeshadow primer by Urban Decay. It helps with keeping your eyelids from creasing the shadows and getting too oily. You can get your primer HERE .  Next I applied just a dab of Benefit highlighter at the inner corner of my eye. This product has just a bit of shimmer, but be careful not to put on too much because it can look cakey.

So off I went to get my own Naked palette with dreams of the perfect smoky eye. You can get yours HERE. I got my laptop out and tried following the girl on You Tube whose makeup was flawless of course and lets just say mine was “meh”.  I used the brush that came with the palette and then got out my own MAC cosmetics brushes HERE and HERE which actually helped a lot more—whew! I’m so used to using these two brushes for highlighting and making a more blended crease that they saved the day.

Next I applied my new eyeliner which glides on and doesn’t catch at all by Urban Decay. It is waterproof and smudge proof once it sets. I used the Almay liquid liner at my waterline and the corner for a subtle cat line. The Jouer pencil is actually an eyeshadow pencil, but I used just a little for smudging at my outer corner.

Of course I then put on my new sunnies from Guess and Voilá I was done (ok after much retouching,    Q-tips with remover, cotton balls to hide my extra smudges….sigh).

I will post a photo of my smoky eye on me soon (after some more practice I promise!) The products are my choices and not being sponsored by any company, but have been really helpful in making this makeup illiterate girl look just a bit more GLAM!




Peach Jumpsuit

Hello Lovelies,
It’s the middle summer and I love pool days, relaxing outside, and sipping a cocktail in a comfortable, but stylish outfit. YET, anyone that knows me, knows I stay away from two colors: yellow and peach. Not that I don’t like either; I actually love yellow, its just that on me I usually feel “washed out”. Also my personality gravitates to brighter happy colors.


This jumpsuit had me sold from the second I saw it online.


It is SO soft and the fabric is totally lightweight. It also has a subtle shimmer, which shows up when the light catches it, but it is still perfect for daytime too.



I love a backless outfit especially since it is usually over 110F here in the summer!




The best part is it can be found on SALE for less than $40!!. You might overlook this jumpsuit on a hanger, but its super flattering on. Check it out before it is gone. I don’t typically shop at this store, but decided to go into the store recently and found the cutest things. AND the home things— oh my gosh too many darling things for words!




I think this would be perfect for dancing too!



So the accessories I have been collecting lately are from Box of Style. This Summer 2016 Box had the most perfect items. I love my Sunglasses from YHF. This bag is from the Spring 2016 Box–sold out sorry!


This edgy ring is from the design company called Luv AJ again the BOX OF STYLE!!!


This gorgeous neckalace is from LUV AJ too— you guessed it—the BOX OF STYLE!!!

Summer Jumpsuit

Hello Lovelies!

I love summer outfits and this super chic jumpsuit is no exception. This was a fun shoot which had me imagining being in South of France while sitting on these cute rattan chairs. I’m going to have to get some of these chairs for my house and make a French bistro in my backyard!


This bistro is located at Kierland Commons. It is delicious and has a secret courtyard inside too.


This outfit I accessorized with several pieces from Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style The sunglasses were inside of my Summer 2016 bix and are by an L.A. based company YHF . The clutch is from an Instagram friendly shop Le Boutique Shop

lightroom2-- 8565

The earrings are from a local artist who’s jewelry business can be found  Pure Life Jewelry on Etsy.










I know I promised the info on these SHOES!! Well here it is and I got mine from Nordstrom and the best news they are on sale. YUP, sale! You can also find them here and on sale too at Amazon. The white jumpsuit is from Tobi. It does run a bit big around the torso so check their measurements carefully.

I hope you liked this fun summer post. Don’t forget to check out the photographer Beth Ann on Instagram and follow this talented gal BB and R Photography!



Red, White and Blue

Happy 4th of July Y’all!!

I love this holiday and all the history behind it. Back in school I totally geeked out on American History. Its a great holiday to be celebrating this land and even better during a long weekend this year.


This top is super cute and can be pared with a cute jeans skirt or white shorts for the rest of the summer on repeat!




The crop off the shoulder top can be found at Urban Outfitters. I love my new top and when I went into the store all tops like this were an extra 30% off!.


The red skirt is old from Nanette Lepore but here are some similar ones Luxe–Yves Saint Laurent or more less expensive Boohoo (less than $30!!)




The flag scarf is one I picked up at Springfield in Spain LOL. Yes only I would buy an American flag scarf while in Spain. Here is a similar option William B for less than $10!





cropped version


The location was beautiful for todays’ shoot. It was the outdoor patio at the Tommy Bahama restaurant at Kierland Commons.


The Mai Tais are delicious and so pretty too with an orchid in each one which is lovely. It feels like you are on vacation!

I had so much fun with this outfit. Loved working with a new photographer Beth Ann from BBandR Photography —stayed tuned for more work with us!!

Accessories are from Zoe Box of Style (purse, sunglasses); Necklace Kendra Scott ;Ring Bauble Bar; Shoes (old) from Target.


I hope you had a great Fourth of July Holiday (sorry about the late post). Til next time. Shop happy and seek out All The Prettys!




Flamingo Floatie Info!

Happy Summer!

So I’ve been asked by some where I got my flamingo floaties. I got them last year for the Bloguettes Instacamp. These flamingos had quite the adventure over at the Saguaro LOL.


The cute cups are from the Oh Joy line from Target (again from last summer). I was really hoping she would have more this year (boo!)

Ok here is the link—same ones (GREAT quality) Amazon…..there were 12 of them. I figured at least they would look cute empty just floating alone in the pool, but they really do work. You need cans of champagne or pink SOLO cups which can be found HERE , which are the perfect size for these flamingo floaties!


Ok, I hope this helps! Happy Pool Days!






Summer Lovin!

Hey There Sunshine!
I recently picked up some goodies that I plan on having on repeat this summer! See below….


The coral tie on sandals are my most favorite thing I have bought in awhile. I found them the perfect height and really comfortable too. Macy’s has a few colors which I may be getting a second pair when I decide which color (sshh don’t tell).

The colorful caftan is from Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style. This is by far my favorite subscription box. I have really liked everything, which is weird because I can be a bit choosey. Box of style comes out once every season. Its like Christmas in a box! (they still have a few left of these—hurry!) Box of Style  will give you great deal $10 off when you use this link!!

The sunglasses are also from Box of Style by a Los Angeles based company called YHF Los Angeles. These sunnies were tested by Rachel Zoe’s staff members and both boys and girls can pull off this style!

The earrings  from Target are nickel free and less than $8. I love the ice blue colors with these.

The ring is a great cocktail ring size from Banana Republic. I love how luxe it looks with a simple outfit.

During the summer you need a good waterproof mascara. I spend on skin care but for basics like this—its drugstore all the way. ULTA carries most all regular brands and you can use you coupons and points too. I got this fairly recently and really like it, better than the expensive Dior one that I bought a few months ago.

The polish is my go to brand Essie, which is found in many different drugstores, but this color is one that is in store only.  It is called Van D’go. I usually get most of my Essie polishes at Target, but Ulta can carry different colors that other stores don’t have, and can you can use your coupons and points (the best!!)

Lastly, the laser cut shoes in a natural color has been hard to find, but Target had this perfect pair.  I know right!?!?!  The heel is a bit taller than I like (way too many dance classes have made the ball of my feet very thin).  I placed a shoe insert in each and good to go (and dance!)

I hope you get inspired to seek out some fun some summer things of your own. Don’t forget to tag me when you share you I can see what you get too. Til next time.





Summer Tassels


Hello Prettys!

I recently picked up my first official tassel item! Yes I know I’m late to the party (psst I don’t have anything pompom either—don’t tell).


I really love the ease and soft cotton fabric of this dress. This dress was a steal at less than $28 Target.  It is perfect for some pool time or just running around in. The sandals are my summer favs from last year Sole Society –these are Similar .



This sleeve…..I love the detail with the tassels!



I am so excited to tell you that his hat is back for the summer!  Nordstrom and this summer’s version is packable which let me tell you is the best so your hat does not get crushed.





The clutch is sold out online but may be available in some H & M stores still. This link is for a similar one H & M




This sweet pup was walking with her owner that day. Little Stella has Cushing’s Syndrome but it doesn’t slow her down!





And my favorite sunglasses are still available too Target .  I really love summer weather and getting to relax with friends. I hope you enjoyed this fun post!
