Zebra Print Dress c/o (Similar Dress) & (Top) || Leather Moro Jacket c/o || Cognac Boots || Crocodile Circle Bag || Knot Headband || Hoop Earrings || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o ||

Good morning! If there’s one print this season that’s standing out from the crowd and trending widely, it’s animal print. I’ve always been a huge fan of leopard and use it as a neutral for many of my outfits. This fall, ALL animals prints from snake, leopard, cheetah, and zebra are huge and add a fun dimension to your wardrobe. This zebra dress I’m wearing is silky to the touch and feels amazing on. I love how it’s actual zebra’s on the dress too. I couldn’t find the specific dress online, but they do have a top with the print. This leather moto jacket actually goes with the dress and has the same zebra print for the lining. I actually have the jacket on now for the chilly mornings we’ve been having. It’s the perfect weight for cool mornings and evenings.

With gorgeous pearl detailing along the front, neck, cuffs, and pockets, this piece is sure to keep you polished all season long.

Also, may we never forget the horrific events of September 11th, 2001 and pray for all of those affected. It’s hard to believe it’s been 18 years already. I remember that day crystal clear as if it were yesterday. All of the victims, their family’s, friends, and loved ones are in my thoughts today and everyday.

Zitsticka c/o || Loungewear Sweater || Loungewear Joggers ||

Good morning! I’m very excited to be sharing this new product with everyone today and let me preface this by saying I’ve been a long time acne suffer and am blown away by how well this works. To dive right in, all of these photos were taken over the course of three days, I do not have any makeup on, and took them as soon as I woke up in the morning. I actually reached out to the company after my future sister-in-law sent me a link showing how well Zitsticka worked. We were both super curious and wanted to know, does this really work??

I had a hormonal breakout on my cheek, with one zit in particular being large, deep, and painful. I focused mainly on that one to test the patches out. The first photo I took before starting the product. After removing my makeup and cleansing my face at night, I applied one patch to the spot and slept with it on overnight. The next morning, I woke up, took a photo with the patch on and then once I removed the patch. I was extremely happy to see the size of the zit had shrunk and the pain was no longer there. The zit was now flatter and also slightly less red. A huge win in my book! I repeated the same process again the next night. The company does say some zits, like my deep one, may need two patches to clear it up. After the second night of wearing the patch, I awoke the next morning, took the patch off, and snapped a photo of how my skin looked. The zit was now completely flat, less red, and was well on its way to being gone. The extremely painful and deep zits reak havoc on my skin and typically leave marks behind that last for months. This product nipped that situation in the bud and while there was still a slight mark left after two applications, it eventually was gone within the next few days. The fact that Zitsticka could reduce the size, inflammation, color, and pain was INCREDIBLE to me and I’m sure most acne sufferers would agree.

The product itself comes with 8 soaked cleaning swabs and 8 spot clarifying patches. Once you prime the area with the cleana swab, you then apply the killa patch to the zit. The pain-free microdarts on the patch permeate the top layer of the skin to deposit clarifying ingredients within two hours. I like to leave mine on overnight. The water-resistant hydrocolloid base sticks firmly to the site, protecting and concealing the area. The magic is in t he microdarts, which are the ingredient filled micro-structures that gently dissolve over the two hour time period. Honestly, I’m blown away and love the product. Zitsticka is $29 for one box of 8 patches.

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! Theres something incredibly elegant about creamy tones in the fall and winter. I instantly think of Jackie Kennedy during JFK’s inaugural address. While many of the women attending the event were in dark winter colors of navy and black, she stood out in a beautiful camel colored coat dress, matching pillbox hat, and white elbow length gloves. I can’t help but to think of Kate Middleton as well, who is always so effortlessly chic and polished. This cream colored coat with an inner twill lining and front patch pockets exudes the very same elegance Jackie carried with her on that historic day. The also comes with a matching cream dress. Both fit true to size.

A huge congrats to the Green Bay Packers on their win over the Chicago Bears last night for the opening of the football season! Ava was super excited to see her guy, Aaron Rodgers on the screen again. She kept taking photos of him throughout the game, haha.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! If you’re in the path of Hurricane Dorian, please stay safe. We’re only supposed to get a few rain showers from the storm, but to everyone else affected, you are in our prayers.

Good morning and happy Wednesday, friends! One item on my bucket list has always been to visit a flower farm and over this past weekend, it finally became a reality! What dreamy day it was too. The weather was absolutely perfect for taking in all of natures splendor. The views were breathtaking and gave an overall sense of calm when gazing out upon the colorful land. Needless to say, Ava and I had an absolute blast. She loved seeing all of the sunflowers, zinnia’s, and especially running through the vast fields. Not only are there flower fields, but the Lakeland Orchard (a part of Roba’s Family Farms) also has a vast array of activities for the entire family to enjoy. Along with the sunflower and zinnia festival, there is also apple picking, an antique carousel, the cow train express, a pumpkin bounce, a giant corn box to play in, various yard games, toy duck races, a goat corral, a hippity hop bounce corral, the cider garden, and for the “young at heart” there is also hard cider available. There’s also food and drinks at the orchard cafe with the cider slushee’s being a big hit with everyone! I believe in later fall there are also fire pits available to enjoy as well. There is a small admission fee, but if you purchase the tickets ahead of time online, they are cheaper. Along with the admission fee, you are able to cut one flower a piece for free. You can cut more flowers if you wish for an additional cost. To check out more about the farm, click here.

With the stunning weather, Ava and I dressed in our floral dresses for the fun flower filled day. I love slowly transitioning to darker florals as the seasons progress. This particular dress has a beautiful dark green background with golden cascading leaves and pretty pink flowers. The perfect dress to compliment fall. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing an XS.

Check out below for some family photos from the orchard!

It’s no secret that my go-to hair care products are from MoroccanOil. Their light treatment oil literally transformed my hair making me a devoted fan of their products. With Fall on the horizon, I know my hair will need a little extra TLC with the weather slowly starting to change. Whenever I want to give my hair some love, I turn to a deep conditioner or mask. This intense moisture mask does the trick in only 5 minutes. It is infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil and nourishing ingredients that hydrate and condition while dramatically improving hair's texture, elasticity, shine and manageability. A pro tip is to add in some of the light treatment oil into the creamy mask before applying to towel dried hair. My hair was even softer after doing that! I added about 2 pumps of the oil and loved the results. Depending on your hair type, 1 pump may be all you need. Give it a try next time!

Happy Labor Day weekend, friends! The last hurrah of summer is upon us and while I’m sad to see summer go, I’m anxiously anticipating all that Fall has to offer. I just recently picked up some pumpkin spice k-cups and look forward to sipping the autumn brew each morning. While slowly starting to incorporate some fall items into my life, I’ve also started adding some fall pieces into my wardrobe, including this beautiful plaid tweed shift dress. Talk about a true classic with a tailored touch! I adore wearing plaid and tweed pieces in the fall, especially when they’re so beautifully paired together into one standout frock. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a size 2.

I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend! Cheers to the unofficial end of summer! It truly was a memorable one with so many highlights that I hold near and dear to my heart. Also, a big congrats to my future sister-in-laws brother getting married this weekend!

I must admit, when it comes to exercising, I am not knowledgeable at all. I wouldn’t even pretend to be, though I do like to stay healthy and find taking walks, jogging, or hiking to be my favorite ways to get and stay active. Not to mention chasing after Ava all day, haha! Ava and I both have our favorite outdoor spots to get active at and for me personally, I find dressing the part always helps motivate me to get out and exercise as much as I can. I love a simple tank, leggings, and sneaks in summer. If I’m at home, I’ll switch the tank out for a sports bra. When the weather starts to cool, I throw on an active sweatshirt with leggings and sneaks. It’s very low key, but still helps get me in the exercise mindset! Below are some of my recent activewear favorites. Also, I always love to have coconut water with me when exercising.

The gold buttons and white self-tie bowknot on the neck add to the nautical charm. The sizing runs true to size. I’m wearing a size small and found it to be very comfortable. This is one of those dresses that will be a staple piece for years to come. Classic pieces are classic for a reason. They never go out of style and can move through each decade without losing their sophistication. It’s also fantastic to wear for work or out with friends. Truly a versatile piece.

Also, if you’re looking for some shows to watch on Netflix, I finished both In The Dark and What If. Both of them kept my interest and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t stop watching! I started Mind Hunters too, which I highly recommend if you like a psychological thrill. It’s slower, but incredibly well done.

For me, a white dress feels just a refreshing to wear as it looks. This gorgeous white crochet midi dress is a true stunner and is sure to turn heads! This is the outfit I wore for Sunday brunch this past weekend. The hem has sheer detailing along with the waist having a cutout pattern. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a UK size 6.

I always feel my best when I’m surrounded by pink tulle. This tiered hi-low skirt adds feminine romance to any outfit. For my look, I wanted a fairytale like feeling, and boy did the golden sunset help create the effect. I particularly love the hi-lo style, which is fantastic for petite frames. The skirt fits true to size. A very special thank you to Ava for taking the bridge photos for me! I had the camera set up on the tripod and showed her how to focus and then snap the photo. She did a marvelous job! A future photographer in the making. She was a huge fan of the skirt too and even tried it on herself! Check below for a photo of her as “princess Darth Vader” lol

Good morning and a very happy Friday to you! This right here is where you can find me for the rest of summer and into the fall. My porch, and specifically these chairs, are where I go to have my morning coffee, to relax with the summer breeze, to work on this blog, to read, and basically everything and anything else. With the theme of my home being Cape Cod, my most favorite place on this earth, I wanted the outdoor space to reflect that as well. The white wicker patio set with blue and white striped cushions fit in perfectly with the beach decor and are incredibly comfortable to sit in. Knowing this is my favorite spot, what better place to photograph this striped dress than against the striped chairs! You can never have too many stripes, especially ones in these beautiful pastel colors. The off the shoulder striped ruffle dress fits true to size (wearing a small) and comes with a removable belt in the matching pattern. I’m always a bit hesitant with off the shoulder styles, but felt completely comfortable in this one, especially with the elastic around the top of the bust area making for a secure fit.

Good morning, friends! Oh, how the colorful stripes on this halter neck maxi dress from Chicwish bring a warm and vibrant smile to my face, similar to that of the stunning colors in a sunset. The dress has an elastic waist for the upmost comfort and an accompanying sash to create a flattering figure. As for sizing, I would recommend going down one size and also pay attention to the length. I’m wearing an XS and still found it to be a tad large in the chest, while the length was long on my 5ft 2in frame. Unfortunately, without a seamstress, this dress is not meant for petite sizes. That being said, with a seamstress handy, this would be one stand out piece, especially for evening summer events!
