Life Lately

For the first time ever I have been experimenting with bright lip colors. It's fun and summery :)
Spring is so all over the place. We had a week of glorious weather and then it's been crazy cold for the last few days. But back when the weather was warm we hung out in the park, played catch, laid in the grass and talked about life. It's those little moments that are my favorite. 
 Wear your shoes boys and girls. I ran to the mailbox without my shoes and on the way back stubbed my toe on our cement stairs. My toe like split in half. It was painful and really weird. It was bleeding a ton and Scott made fun of me for saying it was the worst I had been hurt in years haha. I avoid getting mom taught me that one. 
 I'm obsessed with my new swimsuit!! You can enter to win one on my instagram (entries end Wednesday at midnight!)
 We did some spring cleaning by deep cleaning our carpets. We celebrated by playing Yahtzee. I won. :)

Shoe Happy

 Shoes|Sole Society c/o   Jeans|Aeropostale c/o   Sweater|Anthro, Similar, loving this 

I've been eyeing these shoes for months. They are just so beautiful! Is it ridiculous that a pair of shoes can make you happy? When these came in the mail it seriously brightened my day. They are my new favorite pair of heels and I want to wear them with everything! I'm excited to put together tons of outfits with these beauties :)

Family Weekend

Last week, at the last minute, I decided to fly out and visit my family in New Mexico for a long weekend. I knew that with my internships this summer and fall I wouldn't get to see as much of my family as I'd hope to. I had a blast! I just love my family! I just wished we lived closer to each other!

Before I headed out Scott and I gave each other little somethings for Easter (yes it was mainly an exchange of mini Cadbury eggs haha). He also gave me these bright and happy flowers that I am in love with. 
This little girl, she is too much fun! 
Egg decorating was fun as always, but we missed Scott's creative talents.
Easter Sunday was beautiful. We somehow forgot to get a picture of us all together in our matching Easter outfits. Mom will always make sure that we are coordinating on Easter :)
 I snapped this pic on Easter and I just couldn't get over how beautiful this little bloom was. I love Easter and the time to reflect on my Savior, all he did for me and everything I am so grateful for. 
 Monday morning my little bro and I hiked to the top of Sun Mountain. We had fun and met some pretty hilarious hippie ladies at the top that convinced us to sacrifice a rock to the dead "blessing tree" haha only in Santa Fe. It was so much fun spending some quality brother-sister time together over the weekend. I'm so proud of this handsome boy.

Dressing Down a Pencil Skirt

Top|J.Crew    Skirt|J.Crew    Bag|Forever21     Sandals|Report, similar here and here    Necklace|Etsy

I'm a big fan of pencil skirts. I own them in so many different colors. I recently got this new pinky coral pencil skirt from J.Crew for sale. Let me tell you, it is quality. I usually dress up pencil skirts with fancy tops and heels  for a day a church, but it was a sunny Friday and it was screaming at me to wear it so I thought I'd try to dress it down.

Red and Floral

 Skirt|Aro&Company c/o    Tee|Forever21    Wedges|Victoria's Secret, Similar    Bag|Forever21

I'm a lover of skirts. But I didn't used to be. When I was little and my mom would wear skirts during the week I would think "It's not Sunday, we're not going to church, why would you ever want to wear a skirt just for fun?". But mom's are always right haha. I love wearing skirts now. They're so comfy and girly. This one from Aro & Company is particularly fun because of the floral print, tiny polka dots and pleats.

Oh and I parted my hair on the side for a try. Weird. I'll be going back to the middle.

Life Lately

Life lately has been so jam packed it's crazy. I literally feel like I rarely see my husband anymore. He's working his butt off and I'm so proud. I'm happy when we have even a few seconds to cuddle and catch up.

 One of my favorite people is getting married this month and I had so much fun catching up with her and my London girlfriends the other weekend. I've shared some of my favorite memories with them and I know we'll always be good friends. 
 This girl! Haha We are literally the same person. We have so much in common it is crazy and I just have a blast hangin with her. She's definitely funnier than I am. Everyone (I mean EVERYONE) tells us we look like sisters. So glad we're neighbors and got to meet!

It's finals week for grad school....It's not too fun. But finals never are. I've only got one term left of classes! Come June I'll be done with classes forever!! I can't believe it! I'll still have two internships and a thesis to write, but hey, it's something.

Hope your week is going well! Happy Wednesday!

Wavy Hair Tutorial

Guys, I curled my hair differently for the first time in forever!
It was fun experimenting  and doing something different with my hair and I like the way it turned out, but I'm not sure I like it more than my normal curls. Hopefully I explain everything ok and I don't look too silly talking to myself. haha enjoy.

Watercolor Jacket

Jacket|Aeropostale c/o, similar here, here and here    Jeans|Aeropostale c/o    Tee|J.Crew old, Similar  
 Flats|J.Crew, similar     Bag|Forever21

When Aeropostale contacted my about collaborating with them, I was a little nervous. I had never bought anything from their store before and honestly I had never even walked in. I was nervous I wouldn't find anything that I liked or that fit me right. But I was wrong! The second I walked into the store this watercolor jacket caught my eye and I fell in love! Isn't it gorgeous? It's a great daytime look for this springy weather we're having  It's also perfect because it's totally waterproof for when the april showers come rolling in too.

Yay for spring and floral prints!
