Season for WHITE....

Pants: H&M // Tee: Old Navy // Blazer: Target // Heels: Zara // Bag: Accessorize // Necklace: Target // Watch: Target

You know that crazy rule that white is only appropriate to wear between Memorial Day and Labor Day? Crazy right? Who even writes these crazy rules? Any who, this is one fashion rule I defiantly don't follow and am guilty of breaking just the other night as I attended a family dinner wearing all white, a little touch of color, and a black blazer. oops!
For all of you that follow this rule, only a couple more days......

On another note, we just returned from my surprise trip and my hubs seriously planned the most amazing trip to Amsterdam. His Grandpa actually grew up there(hence the last name) and we got to go back to his hometown. It was amazing and somewhere we will defiantly be going back to.

Happy Thursday!

Four years ago I married this handsome man!
Not sure how I got so lucky to find such an amazing guy that loves me and most importantly gets me. I remember before being married I thought that it was going to be a fairytale, ya know just like ALL the movies. I am proud to say that is completely false, it is not the fairytale like you see in the movies, it is ten times better. I am the first to admit that we fight, argue, scream, and cry{me} but if we didn't then we wouldn't haven grown into what we are today and what we will become tomorrow. 
Like I mentioned before Pete gets me. He knows how to deal with my meltdowns. He has learned to let me go all out on holidays, party's, decorating ect. without telling me I am crazy and doing whatever it takes to to make it everything I imagine. He lets me live my dreams and is right there by my side while I do them. He shares my passion for travel and is always up for new adventures. He is willing to make sacrifices to make me happy. He works full time, does school full time, gets in his flying hours all while being the husband and dad that we need him to be. He trust me. He lets me go shopping as much as I want{need} because he trusts me with our money.  He always lets me be me. I couldn't have asked for anyone more perfect for me then this guy!
I love you babe! Happy Anniversary I can't wait to see what the next years brings us.

One Dress, Two Ways...

Dress: Old Navy // Blazer: H&M // Chambray: H&M // Flats: Sperry // Flip Flops: Old Navy // Purse: Michael Kors // Necklace: F21 {gift}

My favorite items in my closet are those that can be worn many ways. This dress for instants, was bought as a swim suit cover up last summer which worked great for that but I decided to do something else with it. For church I threw on a Blazer and some flats to make it look more dressy which could also work  if you are needing to dress up for work or even a date night with the hubs.  That same night we had a BBQ with some family and I decided to go for a more casual look which all it took was pairing it with a chambray top and some flip flops.
Simple as that!
Try it!

Happy Wednesday!
Love ya so much!

Finding those Gems.....

Dress: Old Navy {on sale} // Shorts: F21 // Sandals: Unknown {old} // Fedora: Nordstroms // Necklace: Downeast {old} // Watch: Guess

Friday I happened to have the day off which was very much needed. Hadlee and I decided to dejunk our house to get ready to move {our house is FINALLY almost done}. I went through boxes of old clothes that I had packed away a year or so ago. I am so glad I went through it cause I found some gems and pretty much felt like I went on a shopping spree in my own closet!
 If any of you are like me {probably not, I am crazy} and pack some of your clothes away that can't fit in your closet, I challenge you to dig though them and see what catches your eye. That is the glamorous thing about fashion trends changing, because those things that were once outdated are now a big hit!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

 Tee: Nordstroms Rack // Sweater: Old Navy // Pants: J. Crew // Purse: Target // Necklace: H&M // Flats: Tory Burch

 One of my favorite things is to mix bright colors up, even those ones you may not think go together. Nothing will make it seem more like spring then throwing on some bright colors topped off with some bright lips :)

Happy Wednesday!

Exploring in San Francisco......

Tee: Nordstrom {Love this} // Skirt: J. Crew // Sweater: J. Crew {old} // Sandals: Dolce Vita {Similar}// Purse: Michael Kors {Similar} // Necklace: TJ Maxx // Watch: Target // Bracelet: J.Crew // sunnies: F21 

Last weekend we decided to take a last minute trip to San Francisco being that I had never been there before. Holy cow... I have been missing out. I fell in love with the city and everything about it except I could of went without seeing the large group of 50 year old men riding their bikes butt naked. But what the heck, its part of the experience right...? It was a fun and short trip, one that we will be re-living in the near future being that it is not too far away from home.

We spent more of the time seeing the tourist spots, eating all the delicious sea food {not a sea food eater, just a good wife}, met some crazies, and surprisingly enough not too much shopping even though the shopping their was amazing. One thing we didn't get the chance to do was bike the Golden Gate Bridge {bucket list}
That is why we must go back!

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. Ours was full of sunshine... FINALLY!
Thanks for reading!

Dress: Banana Republic // Jacket: H&M // Tennies: Converse // Hat: Fanzz // Purse: Tj Maxx // Watch: Michael Kors

A couple of weeks ago we went on an amazing trip to the Dominican Republic. If you haven't been there before I would highly recommend it. We stayed at the most amazing resort which was full of lots of activities and beautiful beaches. What I loved most was that I was able to actually wear summer clothes for a whole week.

Happy Monday, hope you enjoys your weekend.

The Sun is Out......

Shorts: Express // Shirt: J. Crew // Flats: Sperrys // Necklace: Francesca's // Purse: Target

I am to the point that no matter how cold it is outside I am wearing shorts, flip flops, bright colors and everything else Spring. This coldness has gone on long enough and I am not letting it win. It has worked these last couple of weeks and hopefully Spring stays around.

Hope those that have the Sun this weekend enjoy it to the fullest. I am flying to Las Vegas to see it at its finest.

Enjoy your weekend.
