Maui + Wedding

maui12

As the weather gets colder here, I begin to miss the warm Hawaii sun, which got me thinking about my most recent trip to Maui. I realize I didn’t get a chance to share this travel with you. David and I spent five nights in Maui at The Royal Lahaina Resort doing nothing but eating and relaxing.

Hawaiian Air charges for a bag check-in so I decided to squeeze everything into my carry on. I try to avoid checking in a bag as much as possible to save time. The thought of waiting at the baggage claim and then struggling to catch my bag before it spins away from me is never Continue reading

Lauren Conrad Blue Crochet Dress

LC Blace Lace Dress (2)

I’ve always been a romantic girl so it’s not a huge surprise when I type in “romantic wedding themes” in my Pinterest search box. I love the soft colors, delicate decors, and the feminine lace patterns. I may incorporate lace as the main pattern for my wedding (maybe, maybe not. I don’t know.) Add that to the long list of things I have to think about for my wedding. Anyways, I’m spiraling off topic here. Let’s focus on this Lauren Conrad dress Continue reading

Branch Silhouette Dress + Side Braids

branch silhouette (1)

It’s official! Autumn is here to bring us colder weather and hopefully some rain. My garden has been less than happy these past few months. With all the attempts to save water, my plants have been getting watered only once/twice a week. However, the strong vegetables like eggplant and chili peppers have been thriving. I’ve gotten more eggplants this year than the last two combined! My tomatoes and cucumbers grew fine with the limited water, but some type of pest is getting to them before me. Therefore, I decided to stop watering them all together and when I get the time, I’ll pull the plants out. I just don’t see any reason to keep them alive when I can’t even reap the benefits of the fruit.

Lace Trimmed Denim Shorts + Basic Blouse

Lace trim shorts (6)During one of my Target hauls, I snatched up this lace trimmed denim shorts for less than $7. I paired it with a simple, basic blouse from H&M to give this juniors denim a little bit of an adult feel . With the simplicity of this outfit, I decided to carry my Betsey Johnson Ditzy floral bag to add some color. 

The bag comes with a long strap so you can sling it over your shoulder with ease. Lately, I’ve been fond of just carrying my bag by my side or simply holding a clutch. It gives my shoulder a break. Sometimes I feel like my “purse-carrying” shoulder takes a lot of pressure and hangs a lot lower than the other shoulder.

Portland + Highwaisted Shorts

Hello! It took a while, but I finally got some pictures up from the Portland/Seattle trip I took in July. We were there for 3 days and did a lot eating and sightseeing. Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to abuse the tax-free shopping. I love everything we did here, from the places we ate at to the beers to the friendly people to the parks we visited. I ‘m definitely adding this to my favorite destinations to revisit.

I hope you all enjoy the pictures!
