Happy Monday - I hope y'all had an amazing weekend! It was a little easier waking up this morning since this week is a short one... and because I just couldn't wait to show y'all these adorable shorts from Kohl's! As many of you know, I'm slightly obsessed with fun shorts, and I definitely have no shortage of them. What I really like about these multi-color Joe B shorts is the navy, crocheted waistband. The waistband differentiates these shorts from all of my others, and I feel as though it makes them look a little bit fancier - perfect for a dinner & movie date with my hubs on a Sunday night (yep... that's what we did last night, and this is what I wore ;)

Thank y'all so much for stopping by. May your day be as beautiful as you are!

Happy Friday! Can you tell I'm already thinking about the 4th of July - my absolute favorite holiday?! Every year for the fourth, my husband and I (and Brutus, of course) go to my parents house in Wayzata, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), where they have a house on Lake Minnetonka. It's always such a relaxing weekend - with much of our time spent on the lake soaking up the warm sun and competing in extreme tubing competitions (hehehe...true story). 

While I spend the majority of my days in a bathing suit and swim cover-up (scroll the images below to see the cute bathing suit I got from Old Navy), I love cute, flowly maxi dresses for the evenings, and I've already got this outfit packed for next week! Like our days, our evenings are very relaxed. Jason and I love to stroll through downtown Wayzata, which is situated on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, and enjoy the picturesque setting (and maybe a double-scoop coffee ice cream cone from the local ice cream shop ;) Gosh, I'm getting so excited just talking about it (the trip... not the coffee ice cream, hehehe)! What are your plans for the 4th of July?

Pink Flamingo...

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I found this dress a few weeks ago while shopping during my lunch hour at Kohl's. I knew right when I saw it, that I HAD to have it! The playful flamingo print is perfect for summer, and while I've dressed it up with a pair of heels for today's post, this dress also looks great styled casually with a cute pair of flat sandals... or even as a swimsuit cover-up! 

Thank y'all so much for stopping by. May your day be as beautiful as you are!

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm making a statement with this rope bib necklace from H&M. I love how easily this necklace transforms a simple black tank dress into a fun, sexy outfit. A statement piece is an affordable way to maximize your existing wardrobe and create fresh, updated looks for the summer season!

Partido de Palazzo...

Happy Monday - I hope y'all had a lovely weekend! 

Can I just start right off by saying that I'm totally in love with these palazzo pants?! The high waistline creates the illusion of longer legs (yes, please!) and the bold, colorful print is so fun for summer! Now, I have to admit, I was very reluctant to try this trend out at first. I'm rather short (at 5'4) and have a very athletic build, so I assumed that the wide-leg fit would make me appear short and compact. However, I've been pleasantly surprised every time I've tried on palazzo pants! 

For today's look, I'm letting these vibrant pants speak for themselves by pairing them with neutral accessories. While it might not seem like it, I did put a lot of effort into choosing the right top. I initially paired these pants with a simple black tank top (like this), but decided against it when the lines of the tank, along with the wide-leg pants, gave me a boxy look. I decided on the halter-top because the neckline draws the eye inwards and upwards and creates the illusion of a lengthy, narrow frame (again, yes, please)!
