Outtakes | Lifestyle

Sometimes I like to go back & revisit photos that didn't quite make the blog cut. It's always fun to take a walk down memory lane & has really helped give me inspiration as I try to get back into the swing of blogging. Crazy to think that this blog took up much of my life in 2014 & 2015!

Me getting ready for a photo-shoot with my sister. This was only a month after I moved into my apartment! This photo makes me miss my shorter blonde hair </3

Aside from my 25th birthday, I've been known to splurge on a pair of designer sunglasses as a gift to myself. I have such a thing for sunglasses. They're the perfect accessory (especially when I'm not in the mood to do my eye makeup). These Chanel are my favorite pair. They're so fun & the shape is perfect for my face.

Although I rarely wear masculine pieces, I've always admired an over sized blazer mixed with a feminine dress & statement sandals. Perfect for summer office attire.

Pop of Pink

It's officially summer! Yippee! 

I've been into the lax look lately. Trading in my fitted dresses for a pair of jeans & a tee. I even own a pair of Toms (gasp!) thanks to Mike's persuasion. I've found that a quick fix for my 'lack of femininity' is to throw on a chic accessory - like this periwinkle pink Coach bag. It's just the right pop of color to give this look a bit of girly-pizzazz

Mike & I celebrated his birthday in Austin a couple weeks ago. I have never fallen in love with a city quite like this. We've been home for 2 weeks now & I still can't stop ranting & raving about the time we spent there.

This photo was taken just moments after arriving at our hotel room. I would give almost anything to be in this very moment right now. I'm so blessed to have seen & shared so many amazing places with such a great guy.

I promise to have more photos & tips from our trip shortly!

Mike & I visited Boston a few weeks ago. Let's just say that my packing-job for our weekend getaway wasn't so practical. If I'm being honest, I wore this outfit pretty much all three days - okay, okay, I did change up my top but that was literally it.

We had a great time in Boston. Mike had never been, so we spent the weekend doing typical touristy things. Like sipping on more rose than one should within the first 3 hours of arriving, taking a 4 hour nap (according to Mike it was only 2... same,same) eating lobster rolls, going to a Red Sox game & visiting Quincy Market. 

While Boston wasn't my best dressed trip, we had so much fun it didn't matter!

New beginnings can be frightening & exciting all at the same time. I feel as though my life has been on a fast track for the past year, with new opportunities around every corner. 

This week I will be embarking on a new career path & I can't wait to see what's in store for me. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love & support me. I have always believed that life is about the bonds we make & the special people we get to create & share our memories with. I can't thank my loved ones enough for always believing in me & pushing me at times where I didn't believe I could move. Thank you to my family & friends & a certain special someone for always being there for me to lean on. I love you.
