Tuesday Shoe Day

Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday.. yes, I slacked on my Tuesday shoe day but with good reason! I did my research and put together the ultimate summer espadrille shopping guide!

This summer is all about the espadrille trend and I’m all about it too! I’m into the flats, the slip ons & of course the classic wedge!

So, let’s get into it! Here are some favorites I have & are doing my best to get into my closet! Prices vary but a good pair of wedges are always worth the dough!

– WEDGES –

Nordstrom | $119

I have these & I love them! So comfy! The color matches with all kinds of things & they can dress up a outfit or dress it down!

Dillard’s | $79

Dillard’s | $39

Ahh I want these in gray so bad!!! They look like they would match lots of clothes and would look so cute with jeans, shorts, or a dress! Plus, the price is a real winner!

Target | $32

Dillard’s | $89

I absolutely love these and am getting them for work! I love a one strap shoe & these look super comfy!!

ASOS | $42

Zappos | $89

I love BOTH of these!! I think the jean color is so cute & the floral is THE BEST! I’m obsessed! A great shoe to go for a different look!

Dillards | $79

Zappos| $59

ASOS | $40

Including this two pack because it’s a STEAL and I love the white, will match everything & can take any outfit and make for a relaxed casual look! I also LOVE the crawfish ones because, duh, Louisiana!!!

Target | $19

American Eagle | $29

OKAY, not a gigantic fan of these but I know a lot of people are. The only thing that makes these okay to be on my list, (because I am completely against Birkenstocks) is that they are metallic gold & espadrille! Case closed!

Zappos | $62

ASOS | $40

LOVE THESE! so cute & different! Love the tie-up ankle & the floral detail! Price point is a winnnerrrr!

Floral Polka Dots

Let’s brighten up our Monday with this gorgeous under $40 dress shall we? ๐Ÿ˜‚ okay, so today in New Orleans is GORGEOUS – it doesn’t really need brightening up! But still!

I had a few events coming up that involve classy dresses so I went on a hunt for a few that I’ll be sharing with you guys over the next few weeks!

I wore this dress to Hayden’s fist communion and I thought it was perfect for church since it had a higher neck line. It’s not too short and I loved the mix of the blue polka dots & pink Flowers! I also love the little details of the ruffles on the sleeves, chest area & on the bottom!

This is a VERY light weight fabric so it is perfect for summer events. Maybe as we get more into the HOT summer months I’d obviously reach for this for a night time summer outdoor wedding. Or again for something in a church setting!

I purchased this dress from ASOS in a us size 6. I could have gone for a 4 if I wanted to create a more fitted look. There are definitely some places this could have been taken in just to explain to you guys for sizing reference!

Linking the dress HERE for you guys!! I paired it with a blush ankle strap heel but this would look so cute with an espadrille or a tan or even navy heel!

Be on the look out for some more cute summer dresses headed your way & everyone have a fabulous Monday!

blushinโ€™ jeans

Hey y’all! Keeping today’s hop on short and sweet because, duh! It’s Saturday! And my days been a little crazy, started with Hayds first communion, (he was such a little cutie up there on the alter acting like a angel ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‚) then I headed to work in the monsoon that this beautiful Saturday has brought us, and later tonight we’re going to melting pot to celebrate some more!

I wanted to share these jeans with y’all & the similar pair I found because they are on sale! I’m also sharing this cute too because it is flattering for all body types and is definitely a staple summer piece! It is a little pricey but it’s versatile so it can be worn casual or dressed up creating lots of outfit options!

Madewell | $54

Here I’m pairing the shirt with blush colored jeans I found at Abercrombie! I can’t believe I’m saying this but I think I have a new found love for Abercrombie jeans! I absolutely LOVE how these fit, I love the cut & where they are hitting me in the leg! These were a overall win for me! I am normally a 27 in jeans but sized up to a 28 because, ABERCROMBIE, need I say more? Anyway, I am also linking a pair I tried on at American Eagle that I almost got before these stole my heart! Both were a great fit but the American eagles have more of a jean legging feel!

Abercrombie | sale $44

American Eagle | $37

My hair scarf is also from madewell im linking it below the photo but want to say how much I am loving this trend! It’s so in and it’s a great way to spice up your hair style without having to change anything! This is a fun way to add an extra accessory to a look & for $12 I’ll take it!!

Madewell | $12.50

And that about sums up my fit! I hope everyone has a fabulousssss Saturday night and a relaxing Sunday!

Shoot for the stars … and good ice cream!

Here we are! Middle of the week! Amen! Hope everyone’s week is going fabulous! I’m hoping on to share this HOTTTT sheer blush star bodysuit! Jezzz! Say that 3 times fast!

So, I got this body suit months ago and have been waiting to share with y’all!!! It’s sheer so it’s perfect for summer & it can be worn with a ton of different things! Jean shorts, jeans, a cute summery skirt! I’m thinking of endless possibilities haha! You can also obviously pair it with heels or a cute white sneaker to dress it down with shorts! Ummmm, plus it’s $10. Your welcome!

Forever 21 | $10

It’s on sale today and some of the sizes say low stock so I’d scoop it up if you love it! I don’t know how others personally like how their body suits fit but, I like to size up so I feel not so tight and more comfortable!

Also, those photos were taken at Drip Affogato Bar in New Orleans! The ice cream was SO GOOD (i’ve been wanting to go back) but apparently they pour coffee over their ice cream and it’s supper yummy too. I’d believe it if I didn’t think coffee was the grossest thing ever! ๐Ÿ˜‚ just keeping it real!

Tuesday Shoe Day

As promised here’s my first annual “Tuesday Shoe Day” (props to my friend Krista for this cute idea, btw!).

This Tuesday it’s all about the tennis shoes! Okay, maybe it’s all about the tennis shoes all the time really because I am a tennis shoe addict!

Today I’m sharing these ADORABLE Adidas! I love the color because it’s girly & perfect for spring/summer! I also love how there’s touches of white in it as well! These are super comfy and will match with any neutral color!

I got them in Boston and thank jesussss I did because I planned to wear these $300 wedge sneakers in New York and Ryan (in natural Ryan fashion) forced me to put the adidas in his backpack because he was convinced I wasn’t going to make it in the overpriced wedge fury top sneakers. Y’all … he is always right … I didn’t even make it to our plane in the airport with these wedges on! I changed into the tennis shoes & never looked back ๐Ÿ˜‚

Lucky for me these aren’t your normal sneaker they are super cute & looked adorable with my black LuLus & cute pink sweater!

Lesson learned, buy the adidas!

Zappos | $85

Any tennis shoe under $100 is a winner to me! Happy Tuesday y’all!

spring cleaning : body style

Hey y’all!! I’m officially back from our tip and am working on getting back in the swing of things! Why is that always so tough after a vacay!?

I know one thing, it’s officially time to get my ass in gear! LITERALLY! Starting Monday I’m getting back in the mode of eating right & starting a new workout program! I am pretty good at getting in the gym every morning butttt my eating habits lately have not been my best! I tend to have free for all’s when I know “oh I’m on vacation” or “oh we have this and this going on so there’s no point in making the good choice now if I’ll be cheating then”.

Anyway, as I’ve gotten older I know what works for my body and what doesn’t. It’s just getting the willpower to hunker down and do it! I have the type of body that I could go to the gym 4837363 times a week and that doesn’t help! It’s allll what I put in my mouth and I have to be really dedicated and accountable to knock the 5 pounds off! It’s the first few weeks that really suck getting into that habit, but once I get over the hump I’ll do pretty good!

I’m posting today to share one simple little trick that always works when it’s time for me to get in gear and helps get me excited about!

NEW WORKOUT + WELLNESS ACCESSORIES

yes this is totally stupid and materialistic but it’s the truth & I’ll own it! Here’s a list of a few things I’ve recently purchased and want because they are cute and will put me in a good mood when it’s time to workout or eat right in cute yoga clothes!

Jump rope | $8

Sports Bra | $15

Leggings | $22

Tank | $12

Leggings | $22

Sports Bra | $12

Flower Water Bottle | $20

Sports Bra | $14

Leggings | $19

Lace Up Leggings | $24

Sneakers | $80

Leggings | $19

Sports Bra | $14

Leggings | $22

Cute workout accessories, a fun new water bottle or a matching workout set will almost always do the trick for me! Iโ€™m obsessed with that pink jump rope and canโ€™t wait to skip the mornings away ๐Ÿ˜‚

Send me your well wishes come monday! If y’all have any fun tips or tricks y’all use to get motivated send them my way!

Lace + Bell Sleeve Top

Hayyy! I’m currently flying from Nola -> Boston but wanted to hop on because I’ve been super excited about sharing this top with y’all!

I’ve seen this top of top on various different sites for an expensive price so I was so happy when I found it for $24. I had purchased it in Black for work and got sooo many compliments, which meant I obviously had to go for the white too!

Forever 21 | $24

This can be styled with jeans and a dressy shoe or even jean shorts and flats! I tried to take a photo for you guys with shorts and wanted to show y’all a normal jean shirt but I was in the midst of packing for the trip and I forgot! I also took another photo close up to try to show y’all the sleeve!

Linking my shoes for both pictures below for y’all in the slider!

I’m going to try to post while on vacay but also want to spend time with the fam so if I’m M.I.A. I’ll be back when I get home!

Wrappinโ€™ shirts

Okay – so, in this mix of hot one day cold the next weather good ol’ Louisiana brings us I am loving this whole wrap shirt deal. I love this because I can put a cami or bralette under and tie it up and it totally dresses up your normal pair of lulu leggings that I flaunt around in the grocery to or in the house.

I don’t know if I really need an excuse to love these? I just do. I’m keeping this short and sweet because to be honest, I’m tired!

My exact shirt is sold out AT THE MOMENT but I’m linking it below incase it comes back. In the meantime I also found two even cuteeeer ones from Abercrombie on sale, sooo your welcome.

Abercrombie & Fitch |$22

These also come in burgundy and black!

Forever 21 | $15

It looks like they are taking pre-orders for this shirt again so I would get it while the gettin’ is good! Especially for the price!

And just Incase because I always get questions, linking pants below the photo!

lululemon | $98

Hope you all have a fabulous rest of the week!

Dusty Rose Slip-ons

Okay, running in the mall yesterday totally gave me spring fever. I’ve had my eyes on these Abercrombie jeans so I decided after work to just run in and grab them …. omg, SPRING FEVER! I am officially ready for spring, everywhere in the mall has such cute stuff (I’m not normally a mall girl but I’ve decided to just roll with it because, why not?!).

So, before I get sidetracked and don’t stick to the script let’s get to it – while buying this jeans in Abercrombie (which by the way I think I was the oldest person in there minus parents who were with their 15 year olds, but I just decided maybe people would think I was getting clothes for my 15 year old? And maybe I didn’t care because I was totally reliving my glory days of working there and reopening the store after Katrina. RIP Abercrombie Chelsey circa 2005) Anyway, I found the CUTEST slip on shoes that were under $40 and I thought they were totally worth sharing with you guys!

These will look so cute with jeans or jean shorts over the summer and I’m becoming a big fan of slip-ons because they are SO easy to just obviously, slip-on & head out the door!! Plus, I absolutely love the little tie bow on them! It makes them different then a boring old one strap slip!

I found them from two stores and am liking them below the photos!

Abercrombie & Fitch | $38

American Eagle | $34

I almost kinda prefer the second pairs shape & color but tough tooties because I won’t get two of the exact same pairs! …. or will I?! ๐Ÿ˜
