Colorful Walls and Comfy Tunics

Pink Dog Creative in the Asheville Arts District

Pink Tunic Top (40% off, also loving the white!) | White Jeans | Taupe Bow Wedges | Leather Tote | Tortoise Sunglasses | Lipstick in ‘Swag’ | Tassel Earrings | Gold Rings here and here

For all the times I wear dresses, sometimes I just want to wear pants. While I think both options are comfortable (if you find the right dress), there’s something to be said for being able to sit cross legged. What is really love to wear is my Lululemon leggings every day but I doubt my company would consider that appropriate office attire!

Tampa Style Guide

Beach coverup and a wide brim hat in Tampa, Florida.

Initially, I had wanted to do a Tampa travel guide. However, cute restaurants and Instagrammable walls didn’t take priority over batting practice and baseball stadiums this past weekend. Oh well. For all the quests to find a botanical garden I’ve dragged Matt on, he deserved a little time for himself. We did get a chance to spend a bit of time at our hotel which had a few cute spots. Even though things don’t always go as planned, I’m making lemonade out of lemons and doing a style guide instead!

Friday Five: 5 Must Have Items for Spring Break

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about spring break lately. For someone that doesn’t actually get one, I find that ironic. And while I wish I had a week off of life right now, I don’t. So, I’m resolving to just dream about one instead. Oh, and shop for spring break outfits like I actually have plane ticket to somewhere exotic.

As any fashionista knows, the destination of a spring break trip is just as important as a spring break outfit. When we travel, I meticulously plan all my outfits. It’s nauseating. Even I can admit that. Partly because the struggle is real when it comes to fitting everything I want to bring into one suit case. Partly because I want to knock the perfectly planned wanderlust photo out of the park. I’m a perfectionist. It’s a gift and a curse.

Botanical Gardens and a Floral Dress

Topshop floral dress at the Biltmore Botanical Gardens.

Mesh Floral Dress | Blush Velvet Heels (platform version here and slip ons here) | Prada Bag (similar for less) | Pink Sunglasses (my all time favorites!) | Gold Rings Here and Here | Pink Tassel Earrings | Lipstick in ‘Bawse’

Initially, I thought about building up the suspense for this shoot we did while in Asheville. True to form, I scratched that thought as soon as I sat down to write this week’s post. Waiting for something (aka patience) has never been my strength – Matt got all of that! This floral outfit was my favorite look from our long weekend in North Carolina. Hands down, my favorite thing to wear come spring is dresses and this one gives me all those warmer weather feels!
