Golden, Girl


Hey, my loves! I’ve missed my blog, and it feels good to be back! Okay so here are three reasons I’ve been M.I.A.!

  1. Back to school, duh! My Charly is back from her fabulous summer, and it’s been an adjustment for both of us. We’ve worked hard to get a good morning and nighttime routine, and now we’ve finally got it!
  2. I scratched my cornea! Yep, a Saturday nap turned into extremely dry eyes with contacts in, and I couldn’t resist the urge to rub them. No bueno! So…I was prescribed eye drops and forced to forego my beloved contacts. L And…I wasn’t feeling a photo shoot in my glasses. Vain? Maybe lol.
  3. Career change in the works! Yes, I start my new job on Wednesday, and I’m ecstactic! I tend to thrive in an environment where I feel that my work and efforts are contributing to the greater good of mankind. Weird perhaps, but that’s just me. My new job will assist with homelessness prevention in Mississippi. Yay!!! So…I’ve been busy wrapping up things at my current job and preparing for my new one. Maybe I’ll post my first day outfit! We shall see.

Dress: Liz Claiborne (similar here), Shoes: Ann Taylor, Purse: Thrifted (similar here), Ring: The Limited 

My Outfit: I decided on this outfit at the last minute. I really wanted to wear my new gold wedges that I love! So…I decided to pair them with this navy dress. I’ve had this dress forever! Anyhow, I added accessories to complement the gold and voila!


Floral + Fuchsia

Since starting this blog, I have noticed how feminine and girly my style is. I love floral, dresses, pink etc. This former tomboy has completely flipped the script! Lol


Dress: Adrianna Papell (I’m dreaming about this one), Shoes: Enzo Angolini (similar here), Purse: H&M, Sunglasses: Steve Madden (similar here)

My Outfit: I was having one of those moments where I really wanted to wear something different, but I didn’t have time to shop. No, I just don’t need to shop at this point lol. So…I decided to visit my secret closet. I actually have a bunch of clothes at my mom’s house. Yes I know, mom. I will move them soon. Thanks. :-) Anyhow, this dress was in my secret closet. I haven’t worn it in awhile and I didn’t think it would fit. I’m so glad it did! I decided to pair it with a neutral camisole and neutral pumps. My bag added a nice pop of color.S0316163 S0306132 S0306125 S0306121

Casual Comfort

Hey loves! My weekend was pretty awesome! My in-laws from Texas were here for a little over a week, and we’ve had so much fun just spending time as a family. I’ve greatly enjoyed them as usual. Since they left yesterday, I guess I’ll get back to my routine lol.

Also last week, my work office relocated to a new area, and that was just H-E-C-T-I-C! I have never moved at a job so that was an eye opener lol. Now, that we’re all settled in, I can get back to regular business.

From happy and fun with my family to crazy and hectic at work, I was up and down emotionally and as a result, I ate what I wanted lol. I didn’t have time to coach myself on what was or wasn’t organic or what did or didn’t have pesticides. I was like yeah whatever lol. My life’s balance has returned, and it feels good.  ;-)

Jacket: Thrifted (similar here), Top: Forever 21 (similar here), Shorts: Old Navy (similar here), Shoes: GAP (similar here)

My Outfit: I wore this while hanging out with my in-laws. I was comfortable, and really that mattered most. We were eating good food, playing cards, and laughing often. I guess I still had the giggles because I was so goofy during this shoot. LOL My husband was taking pics and just stopped, looked at me, and said, “Really?” LOL Yes, really!
