Pink Leather in Paris

April 24, 2017

Pink leather Jacket Pink Leather Jacket Outfit Striped J Crew Sweater Paris March Weather Outfit Moo's Musing Paris Outfit Pink jacket Paris Outfit Jean Skirt Paris Outfit Inspiration

Pink jackets and coats were really popular this winter, and I am very behind in getting mine up on the blog. I’ve actually had this jacket for quite some time now, and I don’t know why I don’t wear it more often. When I was planning out my outfits for Paris I knew I needed to bring it along though. I wore this outfit on our second full day in Paris, which was actually fairly warm. I definitely still needed the tights though.

The thing about the pink jacket trend that I do like is how easy it would be to transition the jacket for spring and summer. So easy to grab this and throw it over a white off the shoulder top or one of my simple peplums. Yay for pink coats!

All day yesterday I thought it was Friday. Needless to say I was not so happy when I discovered it wasn’t, and I would need to get up in the morning for work. I really should have gotten up to work out prior to work, but ya know I’m not perfect and we should all just be happy that I made it to work on time.

I just wanted to pop in here and tell y’all how incredibly thankful I am for the response I have gotten to this post on singleness. I wrote this post a weeks ago, and it’s been sitting in my drafts for a little bit. I knew it was really personal, and something different that I don’t always do on the blog. However, I am so glad I hit publish! All the comments, texts, and messages I’ve been getting is so encouraging. Opening up and being vulnerable to people is a really hard thing to do, yet when it happens it’s so rewarding. It’s amazing how much you can relate to someone and learn from them.

So this top! Yay for more ruffles! I seriously love how this trend is in. This was a top I bought in Paris on our shopping day. It was from this really cute little boutique who had a majority of blush items that I just couldn’t resist walking into. I found a super similar top from Macy’s that I linked below so y’all can buy one for yourselves. Let the ruffle obsession continue!

This moment, this glorious and perfect moment. The city was fairly quiet, not quite awake yet. Very few people were out and about; the photographers, the runners. Just enough to know the city had life, but not ready for the busyness of the day. There were a few car engines, but no honking. The tourists were not awake. It was simple and peaceful.

This moment when the sun was barely peeking over the rooftops, this moment when the light was not yet harsh but rather soft and warm, this moment of a golden hour morning. This moment is just another moment where Paris stole a little bit more of my heart. It will forever be engrained in my mind how even on a cool morning I felt warm. How in a boisterous and busy city I felt the calm. How in a city with a language gap I still felt like I belonged.

It was a small piece of heaven to sit and watch the city wake up. Slowly, more cars joined the road, slowly the streets became more crowded. Just another tourist on the streets. Yet, it felt like I had seen a secret part of Paris. A part that not everyone gets to see. Where she is shining and calm and just so close to perfection.

Spring Dress Inspiration


Old Navy Dress Outfit Old Navy Spring Dress Old Navy Flower Dress Old Navy Spring Dress Moo's Musing Spring Outfit Moo's Musing Old Navy

Spring! Doesn’t this dress just scream spring? The florals, the color, it’s all beautiful. Thank you Old Navy! They have a ridiculous amount of spring floral dresses. Some would be great for Easter, or the coming months and weather! Being that I’ve been collaborating with them recently I’ve been shopping there a lot. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with their sizes and how well they fit me, and the prices! They seem to be consistently having a sale, and most items can be bought for around $25-$30 if not less! Old Navy seems to be the perfect I need a new dress or top store to run into real fast and find something perfect. We all need more of those stores in our lives.

If you follow my instagram then you know this past weekend was full of wedding festivities! One of my best friends celebrated their wedding day, and man was it a blast! I helped with most of the planning, and was in charge most of the weekend. It was a big job, but we made it through! She was such a beautiful bride, and I was so honored to stand next to her on her big day. Being a bridesmaid is a lot of work, but seriously so fun!

What’s In My Carry On For A Long Flight

March 21, 2017

IMG_2666-01

I am officially a world traveler! No that does not make me a pro…especially considering the two flights to and from Europe were the longest ones I’d ever been on. If you have no idea what I am talking about then you also probably didn’t notice that I was gone for the last two weeks. So hello, hopefully you are new and not just totally oblivious. The last two weeks I went gallivanting around a few cities in England and Paris.  Hopefully you were able to follow along with my adventures on snapchat because they were pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. If you didn’t well that’s a bummer, but it’s okay because I’ll be sharing my photos and some vlogs in the coming days and weeks! It’s seriously amazing. The trip was so perfect.

Today I want to share with y’all what was in my carry on. I read so many other tips about what to have with you on a long flight. Certain things I brought, certain things I didn’t. Some of which I found unnecessary and others I wish I would have had. So here’s my list and my experience.

What I brought:

Passport-Duh! Please don’t forget this. I think it’s self explanatory.

Water bottle-TSA will let you bring in an empty water bottle. I was a little worried about bringing a metal one, but I looked it up on their website and it said I could. I had no problem getting it through. It’s super important to stay hydrated during a flight. Rather than asking the attendant for 10 different mini cups of water I like to bring my own bottle and fill it up once I’m through security.

Blanket scarf-This is a must!!! I didn’t put it in my carry on for the flight home and really missed it! The perks of a blanket scarf is that it can literally be used as a blanket. It’s also big enough to crumple up and use as a pillow. I’ve mentioned this before on the blog, but I am always cold. I was also cold on the flight and this was really helpful. Most airplanes don’t offer complimentary blankets anymore so bringing my own was great.

Book, Laptop- Bringing my laptop in my carry on is just necessity. If you have wifi on the plane then it’s nice to work. However, I did not but I wasn’t going to pack it in my checked bag (this was the same with my camera). As for a book, it was just one way to help keep me entertained. Another idea would be a coloring book or some sort of puzzle book.

Headphones- This is another thing that is no longer complimentary and yet totally necessary. The flight I was on had screens and we were able to watch movies during the flight.

Snacks- I did not bring enough food, and this was such a bummer! I get really cranky without food too (sorry Tori!). We ate lunch before we left to fly to Europe, but on the way home we didn’t even think about it. You can buy food on the plane, but it’s obviously ridiculously priced and I couldn’t justify buying a lot of it. So bring snacks! Lot of snacks!

Socks, Moccasins- Now I wore socks onto the plane so I didn’t actually pack them. I did however pack moccasins and it was dumb (which you’ll see below). If you don’t wear socks on the plane then I would pack them. Again, I get cold and would have froze even more without socks.

Pen- When you land in other countries you usually have to fill out a customs form. It’s just great to have your own pen handy rather than having to ask the other passengers around you if you can borrow theirs.

Phone Charger- I carry a portable phone charger with me everywhere I go. Even when I am in the states. There is almost always a charger on me, and if you catch me without one I probably feel pretty lost.

Beauty Bag: face mask, tooth brush and paste, make-up wipes, face wash, mascara and cover up, and chap stick-

Any flight that is really over 6 hours you are probably going to sleep on. It really is just one way to take up time and you’ll probably need to. Bringing little travel size beauty supplies was helpful for me to get into my regular mindset of preparing for bed. I got a little sample of my favorite face wash from Sephora, and just a travel pack of make up removing wipes. My favorite is the lavender ones since they promote sleep. I also brought a travel size of the Origins Drink up mask. This mask can be worn overnight and is so moisturizing! Flights are really dehydrating to your body and skin so I think this is a great one to use. I read about people who literally bring sheet masks and wear them on plane. While that would be hilarious I am not that brave so I stuck to this one since it’s clear and I don’t have to take it off.

I also brought mascara and cover-up for once I landed. It was nice to freshen up with a few swipes of mascara. This way I didn’t look like I just woke up from traveling 9+ hours.

What I wish I had brought:

Eye mask-The kind that you can sleep in. I’ve never owned one of these sleep masks, but man did I wish I had one! They did turn the lights off on the plane, but only at certain times. This would have allowed me to sleep when I wanted.

Pillow- Another thing I’ve never owned. I’ve always had a hard time sleeping on any sort of transportation, planes included. I really prefer to feel like I’m actually laying down. I don’t know if a travel pillow would have helped, but it sure seemed to let other people sleep.

Ear plugs- This is something I read on multiple blogs that I was like nahhh I won’t need those. I was wrong and people can be soooo loud on planes (drunk man behind me, I’m looking at you).

Blanket scarf- Like I mentioned above, I packed this on the way there and didn’t on the way back and really wish I had. I was cold and really wishing I had my blanket.

Hair tie- #LongHairProblems It really is just always in the way.

Deodorant/Perfume- These would have been nice to have just as one more way to freshen up. The flights felt like a full day had been missed and reapplying deodorant is just refreshing.

 

Have you flown on lots of long distance flights? What’s your biggest tip?

Striped Peplum

Old Navy Peplum Tank Top

Old Navy Stripes Old Navy Lace Shorts Outfit Spring Old Navy Outfit Lace Detail Old Navy Shorts Moo's Musing Striped Peplum

A day spent outdoors is serious therapy for me. There’s just something about being outside with nature that is truly relaxing. Fresh air, sun light, the birds singing; it’s all just really amazing to me. It’s seriously one of my favorite ways to spend an hour or a day.

We all know how much I love versatility, and this outfit fits right in. It’s cute, and comfy, and I can do just about anything in it. This outfit also comes with a secret…these shorts…they are children’s short. I know I know! You wouldn’t have guessed right?! Being really petite it’s hard for me to find shorts, pants, or skirts that fit me. When I was shopping through Old Navy  I found some of the most adorable shorts that they had. Problem was they didn’t fit me in the waist. So I thought I’d try their kids section and ta da these shorts! I know that maybe wearing children’s clothes doesn’t relate to everyone. Yet, I thought I would share since I am sure there are some of you out there who have a problem with pants being too big too.
