fashion // every day attire.

if I were stranded on a deserted island going on vacation and could only bring one outfit, it’d be this. I could rave for days about maxi skirts [+ dresses]. paired with this beautiful floral top. it easily takes me from an afternoon wandering main street + it’s shops, to a nice dinner with my fiance.

if you were allowed one outfit, what would you pack?

happy thursday.

fashion // maxi must.

now that the weather is finally making a drastic turn towards the bright side, let’s talk warm weather attire. [as I’m saying this.. it’s 50°, windy, & rainy. ugh]. I am convinced that every woman needs to own at least 3 maxi dresses. absolutely convinced. they’re so versatile, you’d be doing a disservice to yourself by not owning one, or three. throw them on for a quick trip to the store. or add a statement necklace & a bright lip for a date night. not to mention the comfort. do it for yourself.

three reasons why you need a maxi dress. now.

1. to shield your sunburn legs from the previous pool day. [this could be just me].

2. for this kind of morning – “oh no, I am going to be late and my legs aren’t perfectly shaven, but it’s too hot for pants”.

3. I can’t put in the necessary effort to pick out an outfit that matches.

happy thursday.

[it’s date night!!!! we’re super romantic ..$7 beer pitchers & half price boneless wings. clearly it takes a lot to make me happy].

travels // go blog social.

I had my heart set on attending go blog social this year. I also had my heart set on starting a new job. with training, and lack of vacation days because I’m saving almost all of them for my wedding ..I didn’t know if I could make it work. long story short ..

I will be at half of go blog social.

I am taking off to kansas city on friday (after work). to meet some of my favorite bloggers. and learn how to make this blog just a wee bit better.

here are a handful items I will absolutely be taking with me ..

go blog social //

1 // fun notebook; a lot of great info will be shared. 2 // colorful pens; just because I can. 3 // business cards; essential for networking with other bloggers.

4 // maxi dress; comfortable + chic for a long day. 5 // large tote; because you only have two hands. 6 // bright nail color; why not?

7 // sandals; you’re going to be on your feet all day. 8 // pocket file; to organize all the business cards you’ll be receiving. 9 // breath mints; no explanation necessary.

if you’re also attending, I want to know! and for those of you who are not, you can count on me to take good notes & photographs.

let this week begin ..

happy monday!
