Berry Picking and Gingham

Berry picking season is in full swing! I think almost all berries are in season right now, and our local u-pick farm has tons! Berry picking is probably one of my favorite summer activities. I love spending any time I can outdoors, and this is something that we don’t get to do on the regular.

Usually, my whole family goes picking but this year I got to make a double date out of it. My boyfriend had never been before so we went and invited some of his close friends. He thought paying to pick fruit and help someone else’s farm out seemed silly, but afterward he was totally on board! He said it was more fun than he thought it was going to be; which made me pleased. This little day activity was the first time he had the roll of blogger boyfriend/photographer, and I think the photos came out pretty good! We’ll see how he does growing into the roll ;P

Since we were berry picking as a double date I didn’t want to wear my boots like last year. I had purchased this top on sale actually intending to wear it in Canada and just never did. When I started searching for a berry picking outfit this top was totally perfect! I’m so glad I didn’t shoot it while traveling because gingham is seriously perfect for this! (I actually just noticed I even wore gingham last year too…opps!) I was a little nervous wearing my pink tennis shoes while picking the Ollalie berries since they stain, but I walked away just fine! It was seriously such a fun day!

Dresses For Summer Weddings Under $30

July 19, 2017

J Crew Dress Summer Wedding Summer Wedding Guest Dress

Summer wedding season has been here, and I’ve already attended some. Wedding season is seriously my favorite! I love seeing everyones different styles and dresses. I’ve always loved weddings, and even more so after working as a wedding planner last year. Seeing my own friends get married, or people I actually know is way more heart warming. It’s so much fun supporting people on their big day.

Being that I have multiple weddings on the books already I’ve rounded up some of my favorite dresses that you could wear as a guest! All of the dresses are under $30 too!

Lately, I’ve been loving layering a leather jacket over my dresses. I am always cold, so going to a wedding without a sweater or jacket is seriously not an option!

What do you normally wear when you go to weddings?


Embroidered Top With Chicwish

Yes, you have probably seen this top before on a few other bloggers. I just couldn’t help but choose it when I had the opportunity to collaborate with Chicwish. They have tons of cute options in their shop, but this one just is so cute I couldn’t help but gravitate toward it.

The top is called chambray, and while I guess you could classify it as that it’s not denim at all. The embroidery on it seems super well done so I’m not worried about it coming apart in the wash. I only wore this top for a short amount of time so I’m not sure if the fabric is easily wrinkled, but it might be. You can tell in the photos that the top goes high to low which isn’t my favorite thing ever, but I think for a pregnant mama this shirt could totally work. It is a one size fits all kind of top which usually don’t fit me. I’m an XS or SM in everything so the shirt is a little large on me. I don’t mind it since it’s meant to be flowy though.

Chicwish has a ton of other cute options for summer, and they are running a Fourth of July sale! This pineapple set is adorable! Imagine it for a summer wedding or outdoor dinner party. Eyelet is super in right now, and I almost ordered this top instead. Seriously y’all they have some great options!

Thank you Chichwish for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Colorful Stripes

This whole staying home all day thing is so boring! I’m learning if I don’t start off the day productive than it kind of gets away from me. I’ve been trying to start my day off by working out, but after that I get so bored being at home and working on the computer all day. Even working outside feels so much nicer than just sitting indoors all day long! Having kids and staying home makes a lot of sense to me, but I am obviously not a person who can stay home and do nothing all day long. I get so antsy.

That paragraph is about as exciting as my life has been right now. I work on blog stuff or business stuff, but other than that I haven’t done a whole lot. I’ve started looking up new recipes to try for dinners. Last week I made this chicken and pasta one. The chicken was so good! The pasta and sauce was good, but I didn’t think they were necessary since the chicken was just amazing!

Now onto the clothes! I scored this top from Francesca’s a few weeks ago, and totally forget to share it with y’all. My bad! I can’t find this exact top, but they have a lot of other great off-the-shoulder options. This one is pretty similar, and a great price at under $40.

Hope y’all are having an awesome week!

When The Packages Arrive

BP Off the Shoulder Top Moo's Musing BP Top Nordstrom OTS Flower OTS top Moo's Musing OTS Top Cold Shoulder BP top

My package from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale arrived this week and man was I excited! I ordered this top, and I actually love it! I’m still iffy about the off-the-shoulder tops, but the fact that this one has straps really changes things. Sometimes OTS tops are really uncomfortable and every time you move it feels like the shirt either rides up or is going to fall down. The straps really make a difference. I wore this top yesterday, and I didn’t feel like it was gonna fall. I wish the straps were adjustable, but other than that it’s great!

Take Me Out To A Ball Game

The boys of summer. Oh baseball. It just feels right to spend a summer night at the baseball field right? It’s such a fun summer time activity to do with friends. Seriously, I love it! Watching sports just makes me so happy! I think that comes from playing them so much when I was younger, and now I miss playing so much! Watching them is my way of reminiscing maybe. Who knows, I just love it!

Last weekend my boyfriend (yes, you read that right! Catch that announcement on instagram) and another couple went to a Dodger vs. Cubs game. It was seriously so fun!! I’ve been to Angel’s games a million times, but this was actually my first time at Dodgers stadium for a baseball game. Dodgers stadium is older than Angel’s and it definitely feels more vintage. Matt’s a big Cubs fan (hence the hats), and the couple we went with are Dodger fans. The Cub’s lost, but it was still such a fun night. We even got to watch the fireworks from the field. That part was pretty amazing!

I posted the above photo on instagram the day of the game, and had so many questions about my shirt. I got the idea from this pin and just knew I needed a shirt like this. Honestly, I wish I had one years ago for all the games I went to during college. The company that makes the shirt from the pin was all sold out in my size so I had to search for a top on my own. I ended up going with this one from amazon. It fit great, and it was screen printed on so I knew it wouldn’t come off. I’m going to link a few more below that you can click through.

Kicking Off White Jeans Season

May 30, 2017

White Jeans Outfit

Memorial day has come and past, which means it’s officially white jeans season! Believe it or not these are the first white jeans I’ve ever owned. I know…shocker. They make me so nervous! I am a clumsy person, and I spill frequently. I am just waiting to sit in something, lean up against something, or spill something and look like a total fool. Just wait for it, I’m sure it’s going to make a really great story.

A story I want to know is where did this whole only allowed to wear white after memorial day and before labor day come about. Being my first pair of white jeans this isn’t a rule I’ve had to think about, and I also think it’s silly. I can’t think of anyone who follows this rule exactly. I mean Kate, from Lonestar Southern, rocks white jeans all the time! She’s worn them so many times on her instagram it was seriously convincing me to get a pair! I get that white goes along well with the summer season, but why make it a rule? Maybe there’s a really great theory behind it. Who knows!

This past weekend was a busy one for me! Friday night I went to a Dodger vs. Cubs baseball game, which was so fun! This was the first time I’d been to Dodger stadium for a game. We even got to watch the fireworks from the field! Saturday was my mom’s birthday, and I had a friends bridal shower. Sunday I took my best friends engagement photos, which I still can’t believe she’s getting married! Then Monday was a nice BBQ with a friend’s family, and we went to go see the new Pirates movie. Have you seen it yet? I really liked it, but still not as good as the third one. I thought this was going to be the last one, but there’s a scene after the credits so maybe they are making more!

How was your Memorial Day weekend?
