Doesn't this whole outfit make you think of a Mexico summer vacation? Growing up (and before it got a little dangerous to travel to for a period of time) we always spent a week or two in Rocky Point in the summer. Now mind you, I pretty much have the worst memory of all time, BUT I will never forget the style of the house we stayed at. It was this little beach house that one of my dad's fellow firefighter buddy owned. It was one street away from the beach and used to have this pathway we would cut through to get the the water. The house was white and the floor had the same style tile as the one i n the background of this picture! So now every time I see that style, it takes me back to those summers! Which again, is pretty funny that I even remember because I was like 7 and have a horrible memory. Anyways, as an adult, i'd totally wear this outfit for a Mexico vacation (orrrr anywhere really!) Do you already have your summer travels planned out? I'd love to hear where everyone is roadtripping, or jetsetting to!
Outfit : Muse Apparel
Jewelry: Stella & Dot

So here's the thing, if you can't tell by now by majority of my wardrobe, I have a serious love affair with jumpsuits. Like forrrr real. I can't really get enough of them, and I would prefer to wear them over any other article of clothing. Heck, even my pajamas are a romper haha. So basically this black jumpsuit is the queen jumpsuit in my closet for multiple reasons: 1. it's black, so that makes it perfect for any occasion. 2. Those RUFFLES? They are perfect. and 3. How fun is that open back / knot detail? It could definitely be worn really dressed up, but I chose to make it more casual by adding some strappy black sandals and a western hat and paired it with some Stella & Dot jewels. I almost always wear gold jewelry, unless it's a big chunky necklace. I feel like silver chunky jewelry adds such an edge to any outfit.
If you 100% need this jumpsuit, be sure and shop Arizona local at Muse Apparel. If you aren't located in good ole' Az, i've linked some options below!

So i'm in the looooong process of updating my blog. So, let me know if you are liking the progress so far! I have had so much more time to create lately, so I figured I would jump into blogging and designing again. I very often go months without blogging, BUT I was just thinking about how I get to do all of these fun fashion shoots that I love! I figured I might as well actually post the images somewhere other than the one or two I post on my instagram, so here they are!
This outfit here is no surprise from Forever 21. Obviously this is not sponsored, (I wish!) I just pretty much keep that store in business.....no biggie. Unless an outfit is gifted to me, I stick to the more affordable stores. I really only wear an outfit a couple of times before I'm over it. (also, I totally realize how bratty that just sounded) But basically what I am saying is that i'd rather wear a pair of pants 5 times for $15 than only 5 times for $200. So, I present to you the cutest pair of polka dot culottes you ever did see! I wore this outfit in one of the scenes while filming Total Bella's season 3 in San Diego.

So, I have a bit of an adrenaline junkie side to me. I used to spend my summers in Colorado, and we spent most of our days hiking, camping, fishing, and riding atvs. So when I found out we were going ATV riding in Rocky Point, Mexico, I was super excited - if you can’t tell by the pics below of me doing donuts haha. I love heights, and roller coasters, and jet skis, and all that fun stuff! People often get thrown off a bit when they see that side of me, because I’m usually in some kind of dress or romper and am pretty reserved. BUT I grew up spending most of my time outdoors, and playing sports - volleyball, basketball, and track - and my dad definitely taught us to be guys girls. So, don’t let the dresses fool you haha. Audrey from Love Audrey Photography nicknamed me sporty spice, and it definitely stuck all weekend. PS - how awesome are these action shots she took?? I’m going back to Rocky Point this weekend to shoot a wedding with my mama, so if I have some time I might sneak away for another ride or two!

Hi! So in my previous post about my trip to Rocky Point, i talked about the difference in the two resorts we went between. This post is what I meant by the cute little shopping spots and little food stands outside the Hotel Penasco Del Sol. This little Pina Colada truck was the BEST. It was $4 and he gave us this big pineapple filled with pina colada and topped off a whole other cup as well. It was perfect to split between two people! Plus, he didn’t care that we used his truck as a prop haha it was just too cute to pass up! One thing that I love seeing when I visit different countries is that they have no paint limitations. Every building is painted fun colors, or have different textures. It’s just fun to see the uniqueness of different places! I can’t wait to go back in two weeks and explore some more!
I went to Target and found this romper for only $8. I loved how bright the colors were, so I thought it would be perfect for a beach vacation! I also partnered with Sunglass LA to showcase some of my favorite styles - everything is all under $15 and they have hundreds of styles! I typically like more of a classic style or retro 70’s style in either black or tortoise. These one’s here are my absolute favorites because they are rimmed with gold, and everyone else probably isn’t as ocd as me, but I mainly wear gold jewelry, so I love that it always matches!
"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
