Christmas in Michigan Lookbook

Hey, Friend!

Happy New Year! This isn’t a recap post of 2018, but I did want to quickly mention that I hope 2018 was a good year for you and if it wasn’t I pray that 2019 is joyous and filled with many blessing for you! I used to hate the beginning of a new year when I was little, probably because it meant Christmas was over, but now I love it. Not to sound cliche, but I love the idea of starting fresh and having a clean slate.

Anyways like I said this isn’t a 2018 recap post, but it is a recap of outfits I wore during our time in Michigan the past week and 1/2. We came to spend the holidays with my side of the family, and as always it was such a wonderful time and I miss them already even though we just left this morning.A lot of my clothes I wore were old or purchased at TJ Maxx, but if you would like to know were anything is from let me know!

Let me know how you spent your holidays and/or what you got either for yourself or someone else?

Thanks for reading and again Happy New Year!

Fall Fashion Wish list

In my last blog post which you can find here I talked about some of the many things I love about Fall (btw do you call it Fall or Autumn?) including the fashion. I love fashion and shopping for clothes in general, but I especially love this time of year because its so cozy, but still cute and the colors this time of year are gorgeous. I have so many things saved in my shopping carts and wish lists on various websites and I wanted to share some of the pieces I have my eye on.



Old Navy


Nordstrom Rack

And that is everything or at least most of the things on my wishlist currently, but they grow bigger and bigger on the daily. Let me know what pieces you are eyeing or currently purchased. Also, let me know where you love to shop!

Boho Swing Dress

I’ve been spending the last week with my family up in Michigan. It has been such a wonderful time filled with good food and of course spending time with loved ones. I always wish time here could last longer, but I know we need to get back to Oklahoma eventually (Friday to be exact). I am looking forward to getting back to the south and being able to start decorating our house!! I’m planning on doing post on here if anyone is interested. Our new house isn’t a total fixer upper, but it does need some TLC and cosmetic work. My Pinterest is flooded with diy and decor ideas. What are some your favorite (inexpensive) home decor places?

Trying Prime Wardrobe

Trying Prime Wardrobe

I don’t know why my dog looks so weird in the last photo.. I guess we all have bad angles lol

Today I wanted to talk about a new service Amazon Prime has started which is Prime Wardrobe. Prime Wardrobe is all about try before you buy which in the world of online shopping is a great idea. I love Amazon as it is already and am a prime member because it’s a great thing to have, but when I saw this clothing service they have just introduced I knew I needed to try it out. So how does this work you might ask? Well I will briefly explain to you. You can pick up to 8 items that are prime wardrobe qualified there are hundreds of options, the items are sent to you and upon the day of arrival you have seven days to decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. You will only have to pay for what you keep. You can choose from so many items including jewelry, clothes, and shoes! The options available are so impressive and I am sure they will be adding more.  Prime Wardrobe is available for men, women, and children.
This service seems like the perfect option for so many people including busy parents, online shopping addicts like me and people who hate going to the store to try on clothes (also me).

Check out Prime Wardrobe here

I ordered five pieces of clothing to try out, and I thought I would share what  I am keeping and what I am sending back.

– Democracy Ruffle Yoke Cold Shoulder Top find here: This top needs to see an iron badly, but other then that it’s good top. I think the ruffles and detailing are so so cute. I will be keeping this item.

– Levi Boyfriend Jeans find here: I am really into the boyfried style right now, but unfortunately these ones did not fit me right well and will be returned. I prefer more high waisted jeans and these are lower riding. I liked how they made my legs and booty look, but they were just to tight around the stomach and I eat to much pasta to have tight pants…

– Calvin Klein Light Blue Blouse find here: I loved the sleeve detailing of this top and love the color of it, but I didn’t think it was a must have item for me as I already have a ton of blouses, so I will be sending this back. The white jeans I paired with this top were already in my closet and are from Old Navy.

– Jessica Simpson Navy Blouse find here: I realize I just said I didn’t need the previous top because I have so many blouses already, but I am tossing that idea out the window with this top because I think it is so cute, and I already know I will get a lot more wear out of it compared to the light blue top. I don’ think my photo does this top justice especially the sleeve details, so check out the Amazon photo. This top is a keeper.

– Silver Jeans Co Skinny Crop Jeans find here: When I ordered these I wasn’t truly sure how I felt about them, but after trying them on and seeing how they looked I really like them, plus they are very comfortable. I am going to be keeping these and think I will get a lot of wear out of them.

And that is everything I received in my first Prime Wardrobe order. I am sure I will be using this service again seeing how easy it was to use. Let me know if you try this out and what your thoughts on it are.

Okay before I jump into the post I have to share what was happening when the hubby and I were taking these photos. This is a pretty secluded lake so not many people frequent it, but there were a few people and I do mean a few (only 4 or 5), but anyways as we get out of the car we notice two boxers just roaming around who came to check us out the moment we got out of our car. They were very sweet dogs just wanted to see what we were doing. Then as we are walking out on the ledge where the photos were taking the guys in their boat where seeing what we were doing as well as the father/son duo sitting on rocks fishing, so I had a audience and then our small schnauzer who was in the car noticed the bigger dogs and had to make her presence known, so she started barking at full volume. Needless to say we didn’t stay at this location very long. Have you ever had interesting behind the scenes stuff happen at photo shoots? Let me know.

Alright let’s get into the reason for today’s post: Denim! Now I know its incredibly hot some places so some of you maybe thinking “jeans? really. It’s so hot I don’t even want to wear shorts.” trust me I know the struggle. But I still wanted to share some of my favorite jeans because as someone who struggles to find denim they like perhaps it will inspire you to find something you like.

Here’s my first not so secret secret to my fave jeans I only buy jeans from one store that that is Old Navy. I know how they fit, I like how they fit, the quality is great and I’ve owned jeans from here for 4+ year, so the quality is amazing!

Here are a few of my favorite jeans (let’s see how many more time I can say that word) from Old Navy.

midrise rockstar skinny jeans in rinse– this is the same exact pair I linked above

high-rise rockstar jeans in sandy 2— I personally love light wash jeans and own  2 or 3 this particular pair.

mid-rise rockstar jeans in bright white– I was super nervous to get a white pair of jeans because I can look at something at it will end up as a stain on my pants, but I’ve been lucky with these so far *knocks wood*

As you can see I really only like one style of jean which is skinny. I know a lot of people are growing out of that style, but I still like it and personally I’m not a fan of wide leg or bootcut. Is that the same thing? either way I don’t think you’ll see me wearing that style anytime soon, but perhaps I’ll venture out a little into the more straight leg cut.

Where is your tried and trusted place to buy jeans? let me know in the comments!

dress: Torrid (no longer available) shoes: similar shoot location: in-laws front yard

Happy Memorial Weekend well end of, but nevertheless I hope it has been going well. Fun fact (kinda) it has been so dry here in Oklahoma where we live that we have been in a burn ban meaning we are unable to have BBQ’s, so if you had one of those this weekend I’m quite jealous. How are you celebrating the weekend? does it include any shopping? There are so many good sales happening right now, and I wanted to share some of my favorite clothing sites that are having sales and share my top picks (items I’m wanting to buy)

first up a my picks from H&M
– short sleeve tunic– easy to throw on and would make a good cover up
– sleeveless dress– love the color and lace detailing
– YEAH t-shirt– just a fun shirt to pair with some shorts
lace maxi dress– another beautiful color

Loft (use code Surprise)
– striped fit and flare dress– no such thing as too much black and white in your wardrobe in my opinion
embroidered flutter sleeve top– love the flutter sleeves and beautiful embroidery
– ruffle tie waist dress– I love this bright color
– medallion petal sleeve dress– beautiful pattern and this dress looks so comfy

– sleeveless midi dress– such a fun pattern
– eyelet dress– just gorgeous!
– ruffle sleeve t-shirt– love how the sleeves dress up a basic piece
– crochet flutter sleeve top– another top with lovely sleeve detailing

I know there are so many more sites and stores with sales happening, but I didn’t want to go overboard with the sharing. Let me know what some of your favorite sales are or any purchases you’ve made whether it’s from sales this weekend or just recent purchases.

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for reading! xx

Red Lace

Red Lace

Dress: Boohoo Curve  Sandals: Asos (similar) Photo Location: Black Mesa

I want to start sharing more outfit post, and I knew I wanted to start by sharing photos of this gorgeous lace midi dress from Boohoo. When I first laid eyes on this dress I added it to my cart right away. This piece was actually included in my first ever purchase from this site, and ever since I have been hooked. I heard mixed feeling about this brand before buying from it, but personally everything I have ever bought from them is made really well and fits nicely. This dress would be perfect for a wedding or to wear in the middle of a deserted road like I did…

I will note that if you are more flat chested (like me) you may struggle a bit with how this dress fits in the chest area (this is the only dress I own, so I’m not sure how others fit) I had to tighten the straps the tightest they will go, but personally I am not bothered by that because overall I think the dress fits really nicely.

If you would like to see more pieces from boohoo let me know or if their is any website or store you’d like to see outfits from comment below!

Thanks for reading! xx

Plus size dress inspo for wedding guest

Plus size dress inspo for wedding guest

Spring is in the air… I think. I mean it technically is spring, but I am not sure if Mother Nature got that memo because it doesn’t really feel like spring in most places it seems. Back in my home state of Michigan and other places in the Midwest they are still getting snow! Regardless though it is springtime which means bright colors, pastels, and floral patterns all of which I love. It also means spring weddings. I am sure a bunch of you have weddings to attend in the next few months (I have one in May) and so I wanted to share some dresses I think would be great for a wedding. I tried to include a good mixture of casual, formal and in between because we all know not every wedding wardrobe requirements are the same.  Let me know where you love to buy dresses or clothes from general from!

  1. floral print midi dress
  2. crochet lace midi dress
  3. pastel stripe dress
  4. embroidered lace skater dress
  5. contrast stripe maxi dress

  1. foil print sheath dress

Spring Wardrobe Try On Haul

Spring Wardrobe Try On Haul

Is anyone else disappointed that there are six more weeks of winter? My brain is already in spring mode, so when I was shopping for some new pieces to add to my wardrobe I definitely had warmer weather on my mind. I’ve become a big fan of blush pink which is slightly ironic because any shade of pink used to be a highly disliked color for me. Apologies for the lack of lighting and small/dirty mirror. Girls gotta work with what she’s got!

TOP I’m wearing a 2. Jeans are the rock star style from Old Navy. These are about 2 years old.  I’m wearing an 18.

TOP I’m wearing a 2. I think this would also look super cute with a pair of shorts probably tucked in or white capris.  Jeans are same as above.

TOP I’m wearing a 2. LEGGINGS I’m wearing a 2. These are the soft leggings I have ever felt and they are so incredibly comfortable.

Top is same as above. A chambray top is an essential piece in my wardrobe and I loved that this once is a little more dressy.  LEGGINGS I’m wearing a 2.

CARDIGAN I’m wearing a 2x.  TOP I’m wearing a 2x.
The photo below shows the adorable ruffle sleeves of the striped top. I’m a big fan of black and white in general but it was definitely the sleeves that sold me on this specific top. PANTS I wear these to work pretty much every day (I have three pairs). They are so comfy. I wear a size 18R in them.
Also, that’s a dogs tail in the bottom of the photo…


Firstly please excuses the smudges on the mirror and the tag sitting on my shoulder…
Unfortunately this top must have sold out or isn’t on Nordstrom Rack anymore because I can’t find it. It’s by the brand Bobeau and it’s not on their website either. My pants are the same as above.
