Grey Maxi Dress (AKA Cover Up) | Pink Velvet Sandals | Pink Leather Tote | Pink Sunglasses | White Lace Bra | Threader Earrings (I love these because you can sleep in them!) | Gold Necklace

I always forget to pack cover ups when we’re going on vacation. Always. I don’t know what it is but they always seem to be an after thought. That’s why they were first on my list of 5 things to pack for a warm weather vacation.

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.

Anniversary Shoot with Koman Photography

Malibu Beach California engagement shoot.

As a few of you know, Matt and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary on July 4th! If you missed the massive outfit round up from our celebratory trip to Cabo San Lucas, you can still catch it here. Personally, I don’t think any celebration can be complete without a few photos but I’m guessing that doesn’t surprise you. So, I convinced Matt that it would be a good idea to do a “quick” anniversary shoot! On the hottest day on record in Los Angeles (it was triple digits), Matt and I met up with John from Koman Photography to snap a few shots. We were totally sweating on each other during the shoot but hey, what haven’t you see one year into marriage? Not much.
