Flirty Florals

Anyone else thrilled that this week is a short one? Can't complain about a four-day work week! I'm getting excited for July 4th but I haven't had time to make our apartment festive for the holiday! There's always next year right? I've got some yummy July 4th recipes in the works so look for those soon!

 As I was rummaging through my hard drive I came across these photos from last year that I somehow forgot to post here on the blog! So no I didn't go back to ombre... I can't believe how reddish-brown my ends were in these photos! These photos were taken by my dear friend Christine of Christine Barlow Photography and these floral pants from H&M are my favorite pants year-round. They are such a statement piece that you can keep the rest of your outfit pretty neutral. Christine is such a talented photographer and photographs everything from weddings to family photos.

Modkini Swimwear

When it comes to being poolside this summer, my main focus is being comfortable and relaxed. I haven’t felt that great about my body the past couple months and am definitely not feeling as ready for swimsuit season as usual. Every summer I have the dilemma when buying a new swimsuit… bikini vs. tankini/one piece. Bikinis provide me with much-needed chest support but I feel exposed when wearing them. Tankinis are modest but they often don’t fit perfect in all the right areas I need them to.

Well I’ve got great news…Modkini was invented specifically for this swimsuit dilemma we all have faced! Modkini Swimwear allows you to adding a well-fitting tankini section to your current bikini top! Bikinis often have more style options, different fits and different patterns than tankinis, so this allows you to take advantage of the bikini styles while still providing you with the coverage of a tankini! I love that the Modkini is not permanently attached to your bikini. I can choose to have the added coverage when I feel like I need it and it’s a very cost-effective option! There are two ways to attached your Modkini to your current swimsuit and they have easy Modkini instructions and a tutorial video for how to do both of them.

Here are some before and after photos of my black bikini top from H&M with the Modkini attached! 

You can see in the “after” photo that I’ve attached the Modkini section onto my existing bikini and while wearing it, it feels seamless. I chose a Medium size for a more tighter fit, but you can always size up if you'd like more wiggle room. Modkini is such a great invention and I  really love being able to simply alter my bikini depending on my mood. Check out Modkini’s website for more product details and pick yourself up a Modkini for only $25.00!

Gold-Foil Prints by Troublemakr Etsy Shop

We moved into a new apartment about a month ago and since I’ve been focusing a lot on decorating. One of my favorite 2014 Home Décor Trends is Gold-Foil Prints. Gold-foil prints are such a great way to express your personality. I have been on a gold kick lately so when I saw these gold foil prints from TroubleMakr Etsy Shop, I knew I needed one for my gallery wall! Anastasia, the shop owner, is extremely talented and offers such a great variety of gold-foil prints!

After taking forever to decide which one to get, I finally decided on the Snow White Gold Foil Print from the Troublemakr Etsy Shop. When it arrived I couldn’t believe how intricate the detail is, you can tell in the photo I posted above how perfect it looks. Snow White was one of my favorite Disney Princesses growing up and I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic about my childhood when I saw it! Imagine how CUTE this print would be in a little girl’s room/nursery? I’ve chosen to put this print on a side table in our bedroom where I keep my necklaces and beauty supplies. It adds such a fun touch of personality to the space and I love how amazing they look no matter where you have them in the room. These gold-foil prints truly are worth every penny and are such a great, inexpensive way to add some glam to any room in your home! I’ve also included some of my favorite prints from the Troublemakr Etsy Shop collection below for you to take a look at.

Visit Troublemakr Etsy Shop today and spoil yourself with one of these stunning gold-foil prints!

Boho Chic

My style is slowly turning a little boho-chic. Lately I have loved combining oversized sweaters and maxi skirts. H&M was having a ridiculous sale on maxis the other week (ONLY $4.95) and I purchased one in every color basically. Maxis are great for summer and this light floral print is such a fun one to mix and match with things in my closet.  Happy Hump Day and don't forget to enter the $50 Shop Credit to AMI Clubwear Giveaway

Wedding Season: Mermaid Wedding Dresses

Wedding season is in full swing here in Utah; but when is it not right? Later this month we will celebrate our two-year anniversary of getting engaged and I can’t help but remember all the chaos that ensues when planning a wedding. Like I’ve said before here on the blog, I wanted my wedding décor, reception venue, and most of all, my wedding dress to be a direct reflection of my personality. Your wedding dress is something very important and you want to feel beautiful and content wearing it on your special day! I remember it took me a while to finally say “YES to the dress” since most dresses I came across either weren’t my style or were definitely out of my price range.

DressV has a great selection of affordable couture wedding dresses that will satisfy your style and your budget. I wish I would have known about their website when I was dress shopping because it would have made my decision so much easier! I know purchasing your wedding dress overseas and online can be really intimidating but DressV provides detailed sizing on every one of their dresses and they offer quick shipping! I  especially love the DressV mermaid wedding dresses I have seen on their website lately. Mermaid dresses are very flattering since they accentuate your curves and so feminine. Visit today to see more of their DressV sexy mermaid wedding dresses that will have you feeling confident and beautiful when you walk down the isle on your special day!

Chic Weekly 6.12.14

Lately I've been.... 
 CRAVING the vegetarian salad from Costa Vida
DOING lots of de-cluttering around the house and in my personal life
DREAMING about weird looking creatures chasing me through the streets.....really random
 GIVING some thought into July 4th decor! Can't believe it's right around the corner! 
 GRATEFUL to be absolutely content with where my life is right now. Wouldn't change a thing.
 HAVING lots of fun dinner dates downtown with the hubs
HOPING for a relaxing, sunny Saturday spent at the farmers market & car show
MAD that my sunburn is still sticking around. It’s been almost a week and I’m still red.
 MAKING delicious freezer meals with my mom
 MISSING how amazing and carefree the summers were as a child
 PRAYING for these things for my husband
 SINGING Lana Del Ray’s “Once Upon A Dream” song from Maleficent.
READING You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay
 THANKFUL for our life, I take our first-world luxuries for granted
WANTING to care less about worldly stuff. None of it is coming with me in the afterlife.
WATCHING the first season of BBC’s Sherlock on Netflix. OBSESSED!
WISHING my style icons Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen Happy Birthday tomorrow.
WORKING on my new exercise/weight-loss plan which starts next week
WONDERING if I'll ever find a plant that forgot to be a plant but instead looks like a human

Casual Chic

It’s getting hot, Hot, HOT here in Utah! I love the warming temperatures but when I’m hot and sweaty—you should probably walk away or you’ll get my wrath. I hate feeling all sticky and uncomfortable so light-weight, oversized tops have become my go-to for the recent warm days! You can look cute AND allow for your body to still breathe and feel comfortable while you’re out enjoying the sunshine! This top was on sale for Memorial Day at H&M for $4.95 and after putting it on and seeing how it has such a relaxed-fit, I couldn’t help but pull the trigger! It's on sale again at H& & in stores-- go grab yourself one!

Another side note, but NOT an announcement:
My closet is getting filled with “this-could-be-cute-when-I’m- pregnant” type clothes.  No more sizing down, if it’s oversized and it could one day be a possible maternity shirt, I’m sold! Not having kids for a bit but for some reason maternity fashion is on my mind!

Let's Get Lost

I know it's only Tuesday but running away to Tahiti sounds amazing right now. My week started out with me getting a REALLY  bad sunburn while laying out at my apartment and I seriously look like a lobster. If you've got tips on sunscreen that actually works, send your knowledge my way! Monday at work was a bit stressful too so I am just ready to do exactly what this shirt says... Get Lost. I always long for a good adventure, especially one that involves my husband, the beach, and graphic tees. Graphic tees never get old for me, especially the ones that involve lots of bright colors! I love this saying, multi-colored letters and it goes perfect with this bright chino shorts from J. Crew. This outfit screams summer right? P.S. I'm head stylish today over at Style Elixir, go check out her fabulous blog and see my feature while you're at it!
