I’m a big believer in “you should’t have to sacrifice style for comfort”.  I also wanted to take a moment to highlight the company LuLaRoe. My good friend Sierra sells their clothes and brought this beautiful company to my attention.

“LuLaRoe strives to continuously find ways to Bless Lives and Strengthen Families. Believe it or not, your favorite LuLaRoe piece has its own story. The production and development that goes into each style, print and design touches the hands of thousands of artists and craftsmen around the world. From Korea to Guatemala, to the US and Vietnam, together we are blessing the lives of over 100,000 families. Arriving in the hands of our Customers, each piece embarks on its own journey, complimenting the story of the beautiful person wearing it.” – LuLaRoe website

Any piece from Sierra’s collection shows a prime example of how you can elevate your everyday look with ease. She offers everything from basic solid colors to bold patterns that are so fun to wear!

I love this striped IRMA tunic that Sierra sent me! I paired it with some distressed cut off denim shorts and lace up sandals for an easy-to-wear and COMFORTABLE outfit that I wore while out running errands with Josh :)

Sierra is seriously the sweetest person ever, so if you have any questions at all you can reach out to her here.

LINGERIE FASHION INSPIRATION

Fashion Inspo 1Fashion Inspo 2

Being fashion obsessed I love pulling inspiration from more then just the fashion magazines, and lately I have been pulling that inspiration from lingerie. If you haven’t noticed, lingerie has become very trendy over the last few years. The days of only wearing a simple padded push up bra are long gone, and I honestly hope it never comes back. I thought it might be fun to post a few of my favorite sets along with outfit inspirations from each  :)

Sometimes the simplest of outfits make you feel the best! I always have easy-to-wear white tops in my wardrobe to throw on when I don’t feel like “putting together an outfit”. I wear them with a pair of jeans for an effortless yet put together look.

So I’ve done the hard work for you and searched the web to find a few of my favorite white tops for this summer (and the first one is the one I’m wearing above). Also if you’re interested, here is the link to the jeans I’m wearing from Forever21 and espadrilles from Dillard’s (ON SALE NOW) :) Click the images below to shop the looks!

4TH OF JULY PUP-SICLES

Pupsicle 1Pupsicle 2Pupsicle 3Pupsicle 4

These limited ingredient pup-sicles are full of fruits that are good for your pups and natural enough that even YOU could eat them!

Here’s what you’ll need:

– 4 paper cups

– 1 carton of strawberries

– 3 banana’s

– 1 heaping tbsp of all natural peanut butter

– 1 carton of blueberries

– 4 carrot sticks, pealed and tops chopped off

– 3 cups of water

Directions:

Put your (whole) strawberries in a blender with 1 cup of water. Blend until smooth then evenly pour into your paper cups filling them just a little under half way. Place cups in freezer for 1 hour.

After 1 hour put bananas, peanut butter and 1 cup of water in blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Remove paper cups from freezer and place a carrot stick in the center of each (larger side goes in the strawberry mixture). The strawberry mixture will be a thicker texture which helps keep the carrot in place.

Now take your blended banana mixture and pour evenly into the four cups. Place back in freezer for 1 hour.

After 1 hour put blueberries and 1 cup of water in blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Take cups out of freezer and pour blueberry mixture evenly into the four cups.

Place back in freezer over night.

Once you’re ready to serve these delicious pup-sicles to your best friends run the cup under hot water (water only hitting the cup) for about 10-15 seconds. Then cut a slit into the top of the cup and tear it away from the pup-sicle.
