We’re finally halfway through the week!! Who’s ready for a night out on the town? Me, Me, Me! I’m beyond excited for this weekend because 1. Grayson doesn’t have anything going on (he’s been out of town every weekend since our wedding) and 2. We get to have a fun celebratory dinner with some of our closest friends and 3. Lots of snuggle time with Steven Jalapeño. SO looking forward to dressing up and getting out of the house for a fun night out. BUT what do I wear??? I always refuse to go out downtown so finding something I will actually feel amazing in is going to be a challenge!
I can’t believe it’s almost been an entire month since our elopement! I literally JUST got the link to our wedding photos and can’t wait to show them to y’all!! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you have probably noticed an overwhelming amount of photos from Scottsdale. So many people have asked, and why Scottsdale… You know it’s really hot there, right?? Grayson and I didn’t have much time to take a full on honeymoon so we elected to go somewhere close for 5 days and the winner was the desert!
Do you ever have those things in life that just make you feel like you can conquer the entire world; a pair of killer heels, a super sexy dress, an amazing set of hair extensions?? You know we all do! That’s how I feel with this look. I am rarely dressed up going out in Austin and it’s even rarer that I have my hair extensions in, but this night was an exception! We had just gotten back from our mini-moon in Scottsdale and wanted to go out for a night on the town and celebrate in Austin!
From my early childhood until the end of high school I was an avid soccer player and absolutely loved being healthy and fit. When I started college, fitness was the last thing on my mind with being a full-time architecture student with no life or any time to go workout. I would ALWAYS tell myself to go work out, start eating healthier, get a routine going, but nothing motivated me. This was literally me until this year! Turning 30 made me a little more motivated to get my ass into shape!
Happy Weekend everyone! Who else is ready for some cooler temps?? Saying I am ready is an understatement… I’ve already found myself starting to buy more and more sweaters, scarves and OTK boots lately and its still over 100 degrees here without a remote chance of cooling down soon. That calls for a colder weather vacation, right?! I have tried to be conscious of buying things that I can easily transition into Fall or wear indoors without getting too hot here. One of my latest finds is this chic, navy shirt dress by David Lerner. (It comes in white too!)
Last month I had the pleasure of being invited to Portland to visit costume designer, Deborah Cook, on the set for Kubo and the Two Strings, an upcoming stop-motion animation movie coming to theaters August 19. From the first time I saw Coraline, I knew these films took an army to create but I had no idea how extreme stop-motion actually was. Being amazed was an absolute understatement! Here, I will give you an inside look on what it’s like on an animated, feature film set. From costuming, 3D printing to set building, you are going to be blown away.
Yes, yes… I know, NO MORE NSALE! BUT it’s the last TWO days and I wanted to give all of y’all a super easy shopping guide for the items that are actually left in stock in multiple sizes. I mean, who wants to waste their time going through the entire site only to find a few things that aren’t even in stock in their size?? Not me!!
Jeans have to be the hardest part of my wardrobe I have to shop for. Ladies, I know you agree. I mean, I despise having to shop for jeans which is why you always see me in dresses! There’s always a little excitement when I walk into a store, absolutely fall in love with a few pairs and then get heartbroken when I try them on only to have them not fit in those unflattering areas. You would think my body would be an easy one to fit but apparently these soccer thighs and long torso are deceiving, even to me! And let’s not even go into muffin tops…
Happy Monday, friends!! Grayson and I are finally back from our amazing mini-moon at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale and already back to work. Can I just tell you how hard it is coming back from such a perfect getaway!! I’m already having major withdrawals from that amazing resort!! More to come on that in another post, so stay tuned!! Since we’re back and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is still going on, I’ve teamed up with some amazing gals to go in on a HUGE gift card giveaway that’s at the bottom of this post.
