Zaful Flounce Dress

Off-The-Shoulder Dress  // Wedges //  Purse (in black– can’t seem to find the white — also here in a Oak Color)  // Earrings  // Lipstick

Happy, Happy Friday pretties!!! We made it to the weekend :)) I am ending this week with one of my favorite off-the-shoulder dresses!!  & on a sidetone, please excuse how wrinkly it is.. Every time I get in the car with C he looks at me and says, “Put on your seat belt!” I flash him the puppy dog eyes & say, “but it’s going to wrinkly my outfit!”  most of the time I give in… & this time I definitely did ^^ if you can’t tell lol — but other than that I love the thin material because it’s perfect for these hot summer days & there’s lots of ways you can accessorize this lil number! I chose wedges to dress it up, but sandals or gladiators would also look adorable!! I think you could even rock some slip on sneakers with it or kids & call it a casual day 🙂 Shop the post by clicking on the links above or the pics below!

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

TANK TOP: Old Navy  \  JEANS: Old Navy  \  BELT: Ann Taylor  \  PURSE: Kate Spade  \   WATCH: Michael Kors  \  BRACELET: Pandora  \  BRACELET: David Yurman  \  RING: David Yurman  \  NECKLACE: Chloe + Isabel

Confession:  (I actually have 2)– #1- I love wearing all the same color! especially nudes, pastels, and white!! I think it looks very crisp & clean #2- I have been in a splurging mood when it comes to my jewelry & purses.. so I am budgeting, finding clothes at good prices, then investing in jewelry pieces that I wear every day!!  For example, these skinnies and tank top are super cheap!!! But my accessories are something I will get so much wear out of it so they are a little more pricey!  think about your staple pieces & splurge.. If it’s a one & done, maybe try cutting back!

White Lace Poncho

White Poncho Red Dress Boutique  |  Ivory Slip Nordstrom  |  Sunglasses Ray Ban  |  Purse (linking a similar one)  |  Ring, Link Bracelet,  Morse Code Cuff Baublebar  |  Shoes Steve Madden  |  Bar Necklace Argento Vivo

Turned my favorite poncho into a new favorite dress!! I wore this to date night this past weekend & it was the perfect style for a dressy, classy dinner!  any guesses on what I ordered??? (lobster & baked potato.. my fav) I originally planned to wear it with white skinny jeans.. white on white! but with the temps being in the 90’s I opted for the dress! little cooler & little dressier!

my bracelet stack has also been on repeat!! these are my favorite buablebar pieces and they all go great together!! love, love, love all the gold!!!!

Happy Hump Day!! halfway to the weekend!!

Love, Moscow Mules, & True Pani

My Look: White High/Low Dress  |  Lace-Up Sandals  |  Jord Wood Watch

His Look: Ralph Lauren Cotton Shirt  |  Ralph Lauren Shorts

From the Post

  • True Pani Moscow Mule Cups
    • True Pani was actually founded by some of my fellow Yellowjackets here at Georgia Tech!! So let me tell ya a little bit about their initiative!! Their mission is to provide safe drinking water at the point of use. They created a kit (a cup & a lotus, made out of copper) that rids water of harmful microbes. You can shop the True Pani Mug & help them, help others!
  • Moscow Mules Recipe
    • 1 Grapefruit
    • 1 Sprig of fresh Rosemary
    • 1/2 oz. of Lime Juice
    • 3 oz. Ginger Beer (we used Blue Moon)
    • 2 oz. Pink Grapefruit juice
    • 2 oz. Vodka
    • **** I’ve been trying to find drinks that C & I both enjoy.. I am a wine girl all the way & he likes his bourbon… this is couple approved though 😉  &&& tastes even better in our True Pani cups 😉 🙂
  • Favorite Cheeses
    • C likes Gouda.. I like Gouda 😉  It’s pretty much our go to!

On LOVE 

  • Our Story
    • First & Foremost, Happy 3 Years C!!! I am thankful for you & all the time we’ve spent together!
    • so… how did we meet?  Well long story short, we’ve known each other our whole lives! My grandparents & his parents use to have houseboats by each other at Kentucky Lake.. We grew up together, traveled together, and hung out together.. funny that it took us 19 years to really connect though 😉 — then on this very day 3 years ago, we had our first ever date, at the river front, in Owensboro Kentucky.. I can still remember C sitting there eating salad (while I waited on my chicken fingers & don’t worry he had a steak coming) & I thought to myself, “wow.. I like him way more than I ever expected” I guess the rest is kinda history!
  • How to Survive Long Distance
    • I have to say.. long distance is tough!!! wow.. we’ve had ups & downs, long trips, late nights on the road, & too many miles between us.. but I think distance really does make the heart grow fonder. I joke with Clint & my friends all the time about the snapchat streak him & I have (478 days) & without snapchat idk if we would survive.. I think it’s our main tool of communication because it keeps us connected on immediate thoughts & plans.. it’s like we’re almost there or if I was sitting right beside him when he sends me that 4 second pic…  & that leads me to communication… talk, talk, talk, & talk some more!!! when it comes to separation I think it’s so important to keep communication open & going!  along with honesty & trust! these are the 3 main things that I think are crucial in a relationship (& I think Clint would agree with me)!
    • Becoming independent.. this creates somewhat of a barrier between Clint & I when we are together.. I have gotten so use to doing things my way & doing them alone, that sometimes I’m not use to having someone else around. I think it’s good to be independent & make time for yourself, but you just have to find a good balance!
  • Strengths & Weaknesses
    • I’m OCD & a perfectionist… He is so patient & kind with me so it works out well 😉
    • We are both quick to get upset when plans change (me especially).. it’s something we are working on
    • A strength of his is that he’s always complimenting me! He’s very affectionate & I love hearing his words of affirmation!
  • Raising a Dog
    • It creates an emotional, loving bond that I can’t even explain!! & although we have dual custody of little Oslo, he is our absolute world!
    • Raising a dog has taught us so much about responsibility, priorities, and caring for something other than ourselves! So many people said, “Don’t get a dog in college..” but I disagree.. it was the best decision we ever made!! & honestly, we had more time for him in college than we would’ve if we worked a normal job!!
    • budgeting & money.. dogs can be expensive.. one time Oslo ate chocolate off the dining room table & let me tell ya, late night doggy ER trips are expensive in ATL.. I didn’t have a $$ buffer so I had to call C to bail me out.. taught me to always keep a little extra cash for the pooch in case of emergency!
  • How We Spend Our Time Together
    • since our hours are counted we try to make the most of all the time we have when we’re together. so when we’re not shooting my blog posts (yes, C takes most of my pics), you can either find us at the gym or eating out!! C & I will both tell you one of our favorite activities to do together is go to the gym! Every time we walk into a fitness center I look at him & say, “this is probably my favorite thing to do with you”.  We both really enjoy taking care of ourselves, keeping our fitness levels up, eating right, & pushing our strengths to the limits.. Our next big thing is Yoga!! we have bought the mats & a beginner book.. so I’ll have to keep y’all updated on that!  — & when it comes to eating.. 3 years ago I wouldn’t touch 3/4 of the things on the menu.. now C has me hooked on lobster, crab legs, & asian food.. while I’m working on his sweet tooth (cookies, ice cream, dessert, cake, froyo.. the good stuff ;)) I guess you could say we both really enjoy good food & better company!
    • When you find the one you are suppose to be with, find the things that make you both happy & capitalize on them! When you love what you are doing, where you’re at, & who you are with it’s just good for the soul!
    • Find a special spot.. make a point to visit there often & do your couple soul searching!

My #1 tip on relationships:  Relationships are always stronger when you are best friends first, and a couple second.. I think everyone has their best friend, their significant other, and their 1 true love.. If we’re lucky, they’re all the same person <3

& remember “love isn’t always what you say, it’s what you do”

Zaful Striped Off-the-Shoulder Playsuit

 

ROMPER: Zaful  //  CARD HOLDER: Kate Spade //  SHOES: Sarto  //  RING: David Yurman //  RING STACK: Charming Charlie

red, blue, & yellow! sharing the primary colors today and one of my favorite rompers ever (that’s less than $22)!!! This playsuit is a thin, linen material making it absolutely perfect for these hot summer days!!! The adjustable rope tie around the waist is great for readjusting, so no matter your height you can pull this off!! Make it shorter, or make it longer!  I tied in red accessories to my look but almost anything would look good with this- nudes, pinks, yellows, blues!  This is definitely something you can get your wear out of by mixing & matching your accessories! It’s a casual, fun look!! I love, love, love!!! <3

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo, T

TOP: Similar V-Neck Tee JEANS: Mavi Jeans SANDALS: Jack Rogers  NECKLACE: Love Always PURSE: Similar Style FITBIT BRACELET: Tory Burch BRACELET: Ivory Stone Pearl Kendra Scott

I really, really like wearing oversized tees and skinny jeans!!  & although it feels like the equator here in hotlanta, I just keep on throwing this combo on– no matter what the temp is 😉

I love these simple neutral colors for summer and to transition into fall!! Peach & cream– kinda like peaches & cream, ya know!? since the outfit doesn’t have too much going on I styled lots of gold jewelry with it! Accessory overload you may say 😉

I wore this outfit on Saturday to lunch at Yard House, then shopping at Lennox! I spent my first weekend here in ATL all summer and my bf came to visit!! It was very relaxing, fun, & much needed!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Lead the Way Sunset Dress RaeLynns Boutique York Buckle Tote Tory Burch Chunky Heel Sandal Steve Madden

I’ve officially started transitioning my closet with fall pieces as the end of July is nearing! This embroidered dress is one of my first ‘fall’ish looks, although it’s great to wear now too!!! I paired it with some gladiator, heeled wedges, but when it gets cooler I am going throw on booties with it! Up close the detail embroidered is so adorable!! Since the print is busy I decided to keep my jewelry very minimal and let the focus be on the dress! It’s also available in Navy! both are cute & fit so great!! in love with the bell sleeves ;))  & if you are shopping on RaeLynn’s Boutique use code: Torunn10 for 10% off your entire purchase!! Happy Shopping! xoxoxo, T
