The Best Camera Is The One You Have With You

What do you do when your husband leaves all his camera equipment at work, but you’re all ready to take outfit photos!? Use your iPhone! I have to say I’m pretty proud of how these photos turned out! It was a heck of a lot faster & easier. What do you guys think?

I love shorts. I especially love non jean shorts. It’s so fun having a pair in a crazy color, pattern, material, & style to dress up or down. Riffraff always has the best selection of these kind of shorts, and I got my first pair from them. I’ve kinda started a collection. ☺️  This pair is a new favorite I got in the mail last week! I love the teal color & the pretty scallop detailing around the bottom. I decided to make it more causal with my keds, but they would be super cute with a crop top and some wedges!

Hope you’re having a great week!

Oh-Em-Gee

This dress. You guys this dress has made all my “I need a black dress” dreams come true. Thanks to Riffraff, it’s going to be my go-to for any fancy events or weddings coming up! I love the slit in the back and it’s just the right midi length for a girl on the shorter side. I kept it simple with delicate gold accessories, cause sometimes less is more. I’m so excited to wear this to an upcoming wedding that Marla & I are assisting Haley on in NYC! Ahh! It’s going to be a blast! I’ll share more about that later! Hope you’re staying cool! It’s getting to that almost miserable time here in Georgia.

Happy Tuesday!

Tie-Dye

How is it already July, y’all?! This summer is flying by and the temperature keeps rising here in Georgia. We had a new grocery store just open in our downtown area called Ocmulgee Traders. It’s super cute, and just happens to sell King of Pops! I know y’all have heard me talk about this local Popsicle cart, and I could just go on and on about them! Their homemade Popsicles are seriously the best, especially on a hot summer day. I had the coconut lemongrass and it was pretty tasty.
This tank from Riffraff has been my go-to lately. I love how over-sized and soft it is. It’s perfect to throw on with some shorts and even under some overalls. I love the fun tie-dye colors and it shows just enough on the sides to wear a fun bandeau. Basically you need it! :)

Have a fun holiday weekend!!

Onesie Monday

It’s onesie Monday, y’all! Thanks so much to all the sweet comments on my last post! It really made me feel better! :)

I am almost back to my old self again, but still numb on the bottom left lip and chin. Crossing my fingers that it isn’t permanent. I’m really hoping I can actually enjoy the 4th with my family and eat some real food! That’s been the hardest part of this whole process for sure. So, I bought some fake glasses! Hehe. I thought it would be a fun addition to play with in my outfits. I am very thankful I have perfect eyesight, but sometimes Inwish I could order some from Warby Parker. Am I right, rest of the gals out there with perfect vision?! I am SO glad I decided to purchase this fun jumpsuit. It has everything a girl needs. Pockets for candy, a fun studded belt, a nice elephant print (who doesn’t love that?!), and the illusion that your bum is bigger than it seems. Sold.

Y’all have any fun plans for the 4th?! Love to hear ‘em!
Have a great week!

Pineapples

As I write this I am currently laying in bed with a bag of frozen peas on my face, deciding if I want mashed potatoes or mashed potatoes. Getting your wisdom teeth out is no joke, y’all. All I want is a blueberry donut from Dunkin, nachos & cheese dip, all of my favorite candies, & Chick-fil-a. My procedure was on Wednesday, and it went a little something like this… I was a nervous wreck on the ride there, and my heart was about to beat out of my chest. I sign in, and the lady at the counter said my appointment wasn’t until July 23. I could either wait till July, or they could squeeze me in that day. The only problem with squeezing me in was that I would have to get the laughing gas instead of the IV. So I put my big girl panties on and took the gas! I was flying high as a kite! You do hear everything, and it was nice cause he would tell me exactly what was going on, but honesty you are so out of it you couldn’t care less what you hear or what is about to happen. I felt like I was floating on a cloud.  Overall it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, I mean don’t get me wrong the aftermath stinks! I just want REAL food…

like pineapples!

They are all the rage right now, aren’t they?! Riffraff has a couple pieces with the favorite fruit and I knew I needed at least one for my closet! :) It’s a fun little crop top, perfect for these hot Georgia days. I paired it with these super comfy, high waisted shorts, & added a fun print with my turban from Monroe & Harlow! Guess what?! M&H turned one last week! How exciting is that?! It has been so fun working with Anikka and seeing her business bloom!

Hope you all have a fun weekend!

You guys, where does the weekend go?! We had a pretty good one. Hanging with friends, eating Popsicles, laying by the pool, eating good food, & napping. I would say we brought in the first weekend of summer pretty well!

So, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out this week! Yikes! I am super nervous/terrified. I hear the best part, though, is that you get to eat ice cream all day. That’s the only thing I’m looking forward to, and I’m kind of hoping I’m totally tripping and Bobby gets an awesome video. I am one those people that never gets embarrassed. I just love to laugh even when it’s at myself. Have seen this one?! This girl got famous by Ellen. Fingers crossed I meet Ellen, guys! ;)

Hope you all have a great week! I’ll be living in these overalls all summer. I promise you these are the most comfortable pair out there. Very light weight, roomy, & worth every penny!

LWD

Kim from Morning Lavender Boutique contacted me a week ago about sending me an item to style on my blog. Of course I said YES! Have you seen her shop yet?! I am obsessed! They have some of the prettiest clothes and accessories! Their new lookbook featuring Mara from M loves M is absolutely stunning! I couldn’t wait for them to send me something so I ordered the blue skirt I wore in my last post. When it arrived I smelled this amazing smell all over my mail. I opened it up finding the skirt and this perfect dress, AND some lavender! I mean, who wouldn’t love your mail to smell like lavender?! I have been so impressed with the quality, reasonable prices, & customer service. It has been such a delight working with you, Kim! :)

Have you checked out Kim’s blog, Laces & Locks? She is adorable and her style is so chic!

This dress is exactly what my closet needed! Every girl needs a LWD (little white dress)! I love the cap sleeves and the heart back, oh em gee! :) I have wanted a dress with a heart back for so long! It’s just perfect! :)

Happy Friday!!

Haley & Kaylee Do Crop Tops

I was SO excited when Haley from Colour Me Classic contacted me to do a collaboration. I love her unique sense of style & her blog always looks ah-mazing! Check out her new site here! Her outfits are always making me want to step outside my box and try something new!

We decided to style crop tops! I was a fan last summer, but never got the nerve to actually wear one. Hey, they are kind of intimidating, and I definitely don’t have abs like Beyoncé! I wanted my look to be something I could wear again and again, and something I felt comfortable in. When I received this skirt from Morning Lavender Boutique (my new obsession) I knew it would be perfect styled with a crop top. I chose the top from Necessary clothing because I love that place! They have such great prices on essential items for your closet. The high waisted skirt was just the right length and fit, just showing a tiny bit of skin making the outfit fun and flirty. I promise you the crop tops aren’t as scary as they seem. With some confidence and some killer accessories & lipgloss you will work it! :)

I love how we both opted for a high waisted skirt, showing the right amount of skin to give the outfit just enough playfulness. I love the pattern/print play Haley has going on with her top and wedges! Such a cute look for summer!

A Whole Mu World

Well I’m back, after a nice little break. As you may know from my last post the guys competed in the VH1′s Make a Band Famous last week. Sadly they didn’t win, but they did make top 12. During the second round they were teamed up with another band and were given a song to learn in an hour and then perform for the judges. They seriously KILLED it! I couldn’t be more proud of those guys! Here’s the clip! :) So I kept myself pretty busy last week while Bobby was gone. I laid by the pool, worked, hung out with the girls, & did wifey things around the house. I’m usually a freaking wreck when he leaves me. You know the saying “I’d die without you.” Well I really would. Hehe.

Have you gals seen the latest collection from MuMu?! Oh my gosh, I know I said I was obsessed with the brand already, but I’m even more obsessed with the new prints! My favorite local boutique, Rumor, sells some of their items and I got to look over the lookbook and pick a few! :) By far, the world map print is my fave! I love all the colors & how long and flowy it is. It’s perfect paired with shorts or jeans and a must for the beach as a cover up!

Hope you have a sunny Tuesday!

#MABF + #GoodNightAlive

So some of you may know, if you follow me on twitter, that my husband and his band mates are in a competition called VH1′s Make a Band Famous. It started back in May where they had to submit a 15 second video on Instagram playing one of their songs. Out of 2,500+ bands VH1 narrowed it down to 60 and the guys made the cut! The next round you had to vote on twitter, tweeting anything, but with the hashtags #goodnightalive and #MABF (make a band famous). That went on for a couple weeks, and the guys stayed in the top 3 the whole time. I’m sure my tweets and retweets covered your feed, sorry! I gotta represent my babe! ;) On this past Thursday they announced the top 24 who would be moving on to the finals in NYC! Without a doubt I knew they would make it, and they did! The guys will be hitting the road Sunday evening. I am so excited and proud of these dudes. They will be in a 24 hour competition starting June 11 at 8 pm. It’s a live stream event and they need our votes to stay on! So if you all would please tweet #GoodNightAlive #MABF as many times as you can everyday until the event is over on Thursday night we would greatly appreciate it! I’ll be taking a break from the blog till Bobby returns so I can tweet my little heart out till my fingers go numb! :)

Listen to their new song! It’s my favorite! :)

And here’s the song that they submitted!

Hope you all have a great weekend and week!
