High Waisted Skinny & Another Giveaway!

Sometimes styles come and I think "oh no". Other times, I scream a big "Heck yeah!" and run right to the store. When it comes to high waisted skinny jeans I definitely did the latter. But being a short gal, I measure up at a tall 5'3, with a small waist and large derrière they aren't always easy to find. Lucky enough, Gap had exactly what this girl needed and I don't ever want to take them off. For a fun night of wine and girl talk with my blogger gals Hannah, of The Champagne Lifestyle on a Beer Budget, and Abby, of The Fabulous Life of a Natural Disaster, a skinny jean and structured blouse were exactly what I was looking forward. This outfit was witness to way too many glasses of wine and so many laughs my belly hurt. So to sum it up, a good night am I right? 
Skinny High-waisted jean-- Gap. | Blouse -- The Loft. | Clutch -- Anthropologie. | Sunglasses -- The Loft. | Earrings -- Francescas. | Ring -- TJ Maxx.

Birthday & Giveaway


I've talked a few times about how busy the summer season can be and this month has certainly held true to that notion. The end of June encompassed the end of June Gloom {thank GOD!}, my birthday, and my best friend's visit {!!!}. All fun and exciting things I have been looking forward to for quite some time but also things that can lead to a ton of planning, and when you're me sometimes over planning because lets get real I have a tendency to find way too many fun things to add to my to-do lists which ends up resulting in one busy and burnt out gal. I've had a blast spending our days at the beach, celebrating birthday dinners and brunches with friends and now planning a fun 4th of July BBQ -- but this gal needs a relaxing night in with a bottle of wine ASAP. 

If you remember way back in January when I shared some New Years resolutions I mentioned that being present was one of them {sounds so easy, right?!} and 6 months later I am still trying to remind myself to fully enjoy each moment. For this busy and event filled month that has resulted in a lack of blogging pictures, but hey, I have a ton of memories to add in their place. However, I do have two things for ya'll instead. 1 -- a few pictures from my day of celebrating with my girlfriends and 2 -- since I was showered with gifts for my birthday its your turn with a fun summer giveaway to make up for it ;) 

We appreciate our followers and readers so much that we would love to gift as many of you as possible! In this giveaway, we are rewarding 3 precious readers/followers with a fabulous authentic Tory Burch package that includes a tote bag and a wallet! Each package is worth $590. Open to international contestants but international winner will be responsible for shipping and custom fees. Entrants must be 18+ old to join. You have 124 chances of winning if you follow all the sponsors so follow as many as you can.
