Hey what’s up hello!

Thanks for coming back! I hope you guys enjoyed reading last night’s post on my hair. If you haven’t had the chance to see it, scroll down and check it out! It’s a good one. #hairflip

One of my all-time favorite quotes is, “Believe in yourself. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face… You must do that which you think you cannot do… The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” by a wonderful woman named Eleanor Roosevelt. At the time (not to get all history lesson here) she was the first lady during the second World War and America’s Great Depression. She said those words to inspire Americans to get over their fears and feelings of hopelessness and do something great.

To pursue your dreams takes an incredible amount of courage. And strength. We’ve all been through tough times (don’t pretend you haven’t). But there’s a good chance those struggles made you stronger. So, I guess you should be grateful for them. I know I am.

And now… it feels like you can do anything. Right?! You conquered your stupid fears. (Once upon a time, I was terrified at the thought of starting a blog. #shy) And succeeded.

With that, I’ll leave you with this (because the majority of today was spent ideating something great and scary and exciting all at the same time)… your future will only belong to you if you set out to create it. You have no idea what it holds. No clue. But I guarantee you, if you pursue things that are super scary and amazing and big and awesome, the best is yet to come my friend.

So… go for it.

Happy Monday everyone!

(And yes, my boots are on sale. Like major sale.)

Thank God it’s Friday. I’m beat. And need a couple days to relax and recoup from last weekend’s trip to Dallas and this week at work. Sometimes it feels like I’m running a marathon (in heels of course)! Ah, but enough about that – I’m truly grateful to be busy and to do what I love everyday! Now let’s talk fashion…

Rather than wear the same thing on Saturday and Sunday (boyfriend jeans and a comfy white tee), I’m opting for something slightly more stylish (and comfortable) this weekend. Denim shorts and this off-shoulder top from Neiman Marcus.

If you haven’t figured out by now – I love my denim distressed. Like extra extra distressed. Which is why I adore these shorts by Rag & Bone! I love how they have tiny holes in them and a frayed hem. They also fit my petite frame really well.

(Unfortunately, this style is sold out online but you can find a similar pair here.)

Delicate stripes accent this totes adorbs off-shoulder top from designer, Foundrae. I love how versatile it is. You can wear it with denim cut-offs and leather sandals, a white midi skirt with espadrilles, a denim skirt or with cropped white jeans. Plus! Off-shoulder tops are like one of the season’s hottest silhouettes.

My bag of choice for the weekend is always a crossbody because it’s compact and easy to take with me when I’m on the go. This one, by Chloé, is one of my favorites. It’s hue, the details, the trim, those gold studs, that swishy tassel… are all beautifully crafted and 100% worth the splurge.

Suede gladiator sandals from Italian designer, Gianvito Rossi, complete this look. I can’t way to style them with a summer dress or with a pair of cropped jeans.
