Life Lately

So much has been going on lately that I feel it’s time for a little update!

Summer is in full swing and I am in heaven! I mentioned a while back that we purchased a grill so I have LOVED utilizing that and grilling outside after work and on weekends. Last night Kelly grilled us some cilantro lime chicken with grilled asparagus. I’ll sit out in the backyard with him while he’s grilling and sip on some sparking water or even some champagne.

I’ve realized that I love being outside more and more so I’m really enjoying it.

We got back from New Orleans a few weeks ago and I’m so disappointed I didn’t take more pictures. My phone ran out of storage and it honestly just got past me. We were just enjoying ourselves and I didn’t focus enough on photos. Needless to say, it was a blast. We went with our good friends and the four of us all made it back in one piece. Barely. Ha!

Next trip on our list is our honeymoon in three weeks. Work is going to be CRAZY over these next few weeks so it’s definitely coming at the right time. I have a huge presentation the week before we go and I will be in major need of some R&R.

Fun fact: I’ve never left the country!

I didn’t have a passport until last week and y’all would never believe the hoops I had to jump through to get it. I’ll just say that my application initially got held due to insufficient information… Ugh. Regardless, I got it last Thursday and now we can really prep and plan for the trip.

I’m thinking about writing a post all about what I’m packing. Stay tuned for that!

If you follow me on instagram then you may have seen my IG Story about Howdy being bit by another dog last weekend. Long story short…he was bit, he needed stitches, and he’s fine. I just had a few of you asking about what happened to him so I thought I would also let you know that he’s recooping just fine. He’s loving all of the extra attention.

Next on our agenda is my mom and dad coming to Houston for the weekend to visit. We are going to an Astros game on Friday night and then seeing where the weekend takes us after that. We are excited! That’s about all I have for an update and hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!

Something funny about this top shown above…the knotted straps are designed to be worn off the shoulder towards the sides, but when I tried it on I wore it both ways and liked them over my shoulders a lot more. Plus, I thought the top was designed for over the shoulder straps. LOL! It was definitely designed to be an OTS top but oh well.

The outfit details are above and below. This top is sold out but it’s cute striped sister is still in stock!

My Summer Wish List

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

Even though Summer doesn’t technically start until June 21st, it is hot enough here in Houston for me to turn my Summer mode ON! We have already taken one trip this Summer and we are anxiously awaiting our second trip coming up here in a few weeks. It will be full of sunshine and tons of salty water so I am wanting to get a few items for the coming trip.

I’ve done quite a bit of shopping lately but there are still a few things on my list that I have been keeping my eye on. I may or may not have already placed a few in my shopping cart. Ha!

A few of my favorites on this list would be these earrings. How fun are they?? They would be perfect with any black or white outfit and would be that perfect pop of color. Another thing I am DYING to have is that maxi dress! I can already see myself wearing that to dinner by the water or to sail on a catamaran ride that we are going to do. Lastly, I think I HAVE to get that pom clutch. I love anything and everything that has pom poms and when I saw that clutch it hopped right into my shopping cart.

What are the things that you are loving on this list?

Sun’s Out Shoulders Out!

IT’S FRIDAY!

I am headed to Austin today for a weekend FULL of family. My Mom and Dad celebrate their birthdays only one day apart and both of their birthdays fall today and tomorrow. So, my sisters and I are spending the weekend with them to celebrate and enjoy some much needed family time.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to seeing my sweet little nieces and nephew and drinking wine all weekend with my family at the kitchen table. It’s going to be great!

But before I head out of town I want to share this off the shoulder dress that I scooped up for a steal of a price and is super cute! I also found these sandals that I know I will be living in ALL Summer!

I’m a sucker for anything off the shoulder and this cotton material is so comfortable that I think I will also be packing it for our trip to Mexico in a few weeks. The dress comes in a variety of colors and I have a feeling I will be ordering more in other colors.

I am so ready to get through my work day and head out for the weekend. I hope you all have a FAB and safe weekend!

Affordable and Adorable

Good morning, babes!

How was everyone’s weekend?? I had a pretty good weekend and just laid low. I was sick all last week and am slowly getting over a cough brought on late last week. No fun at all!

Regardless, I tried my best to enjoy the three-day weekend and relax as much as possible before our trip this coming weekend.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you this adorable top that I scooped up this weekend and I love it!

It’s got high slits on either side and the color pops! I love it and I know I will be rocking this in Mexico next month.

I also got these cute sandals that are SUPER comfortable and a steal of a price.

All items of the outfit are linked below. I hope that everyone has a fabulous week ahead!

It is grey and gloomy here in Houston so I thought that putting together a round up of my favorite SheIn Summer items would be fun!

I am taking a few trips this Summer and I can see each of these pieces in my suitcase ready for any event–including a day that calls for a long Netflix binge!

As many of you already know, Summer is my favorite time of year including the fashion and SheIn has a price point that is incomparable to a ton of other places. I have linked all of these items above for you so you can shop all of these items directly.

SIDE NOTE: This is an international site so make sure you choose US Dollar for an accurate price when shopping.

Which top above was your favorite?
