Happy Wednesday!

Today’s post is in collaboration with Daisy Shoppe! Daisy Shoppe is located in California with multiple locations, and they actually have been around for quite some time! They celebrated their 50th anniversary in June of 2016! How cool is that?

They pride themselves in providing “cute and happy clothes,” and gifts for the everyday girl! Not only do they carry clothing and accessories, but they also carry home goods and little trinkets. So fun!

Not only that, but they also carry faith-based journals, devotionals, and adorable little Bibles.

Basically, they’re a one-stop-shop and every girl’s dream!

This Palm Printed jumpsuit is so fun & perfect for summer! It’s also available in black.

It’s one of those unique jumpsuits, with the leg slits, so it’s basically like you’re wearing a romper!! That style is perfect for super hot, summer days! And the fabric of this jumpsuit is super lightweight and very breathable!

I’m wearing a size XS, and I’m 5’1 for reference. I paired this beauty with some heels, as it was a little long on your girl, but hey, what isn’t?!

My tassel earrings and belt are both from Target, and were super on sale and are super old. Sorry girl!

So like I mentioned earlier, they also carry little knickknacks, home goods, and faith-based books and journals.

This little Devotional Bible for Women is also from Daisy Shoppe, and it’s amazing, and also the cutest!

As many of you may know, I am a Christian, and as a Christ follower it is vital that we get into the word every single day so that we may grow on our walk with the Lord.

I know at times it is so tough to either find the time or just the motivation to do it. I also know that making it a part of your daily routine is challenging. Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.

Okay, I haven’t just “been there”… it’s a reoccurring theme sometimes in my life. We get so distracted by all of the hustle and bustle of this life, making plans, working hard, going, going, going, and sometimes we leave the Lord right out of it all.

It’s ironic though because without Him, we’d be nothing, have nothing, and could do nothing. But we’re humans, and we make mistakes (boy, do we make mistakes), but the grace of our Lord is sufficient and ever-present, and all He wants from us is to get back up, keep trying, and to keep pursuing Him.

This devotional book has helped me so much! There’s just something about holding a tangible book, rather than just scrolling through a Bible app. I have more motivation to pick up a book than to just open up another app. I feel more connected and like what I’m doing is important, because now it’s separate from all the other things I already do on my phone. Do you get what I’m saying?

It’s also a beautiful book just to look at, so sometimes it catches my eye, and I’m like, “Hey!” so I sit back down with it and go through it, if I maybe forgot to that morning, because again, “life happens,” even though life can’t happen without Him.. but you get the point. Lol.

This Devotional for Women is split up into daily readings, each reading coincides with the date! Each day is filled with verses plus a small application paragraph at the end! I love it!

Summertime Sundress | Honey Lake

Hey girlfriend! Welcome back!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! And Happy Race Day here in Indy!

Summer has officially begun.. well technically, that’s not til June, but we are experiencing 90 degree weather here daily… so it’s summer. So bring on the popsicles, the picnics, and those summertime sundresses!

I am so excited for today’s post, as it is another collaboration with Honey Lake Boutique! It’s been a minute since I’ve teamed up with my bffs over at Honey Lake, so it was about time!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Yeah. I know. You probably just died over this dress like I did the first time I saw it.

This little midi dress from Honey Lake Boutique has “summer picnics for days” written all over it. I LOVE the length of it too! But, you probably knew that by now, if you’ve been following me! 🙂

The classy, sophisticated style of this dress is just amazing. And I love that it’s striped too!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

This dress is SO nice too! It’s not made of dinky, see-through fabric; it’s actually lined! It’s not heavy by any means, but it definitely doesn’t feel cheap either! It’s perfect!

Speaking of perfect, do you see that embroidery….

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

It’s okay to cry, I did too.

Can you say STUNNING?! I absolutely adore all the intricate detail of this floral embroidery pattern! And those colors are absolutely perfect together!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

I paired this beauty with some cognac heels and the perfect red lip, to let the dress do all the talking!

Purchase the dress here!

Use the code CLAIRE20 to save on Honey Lake! 🙂

If you’re curious, my red lip is the shade “cherry moon,” and you can purchase it here!

The Perfect Shorts | Gingerly Witty

DSC_2351DSC_2390DSC_2483DSC_2445

Hey girl!

I am so excited about today’s post, and I’m kind of obsessed with today’s look… I know I start like every blog post that way, but I guess that just means I’ve found a good path to be on 😉

I have teamed up with Gingerly Witty to bring you today’s look.. that I’m obsessed with… did I mention that? 😉

If you don’t know what Gingerly Witty is, it’s the cutest shop to ever exist, with the most adorable Instagram feed, need I say more?

But really. I have been following them for so long being utterly obsessed, so when we got a collaboration in the works, I was ecstatic.

Gingerly Witty carries so many amazing labels, with such unique designs. Their clothing has a bit of a boho flare, while also being kind of edgy. The coolest, really.

Now a moment of silence for the cutest shorts of life… I’ll wait.

Purchase them HERE!

DSC_2402DSC_2382DSC_2450DSC_2481

That last photo accurately displays how these shorts make me feel.

I had never seen anything like these shorts when I laid my eyes on them on Gingerly Witty.

I loved everything about them.

The color, the style, the length. They were perfect, and I knew I had to have them.

Mine are a size small and would fit a 2-4, I’m a pretty true XS, so they’re a little big, but the belt makes them work, and I loved them too much, so they had to work.

They’re “paper bag” style shorts which basically means they’re not going to be skin tight, they’re a little baggy, and they have super cute pleats. And they’re high-waisted so like literally what more could you want?

DSC_2382DSC_2380

I paired these beauties with a classic chambray top that I tied up to show off the belt, some cognac heels, and a woven bag.

But what I know you’re all waiting for are these earrings…

DSC_2404DSC_2406DSC_2424

You would not believe how many questions I got about these earrings on Instagram… well maybe you would, cause you were probably one of them! 🙂

These earrings are also from Gingerly Witty, and they’re amazing!

Now I have really sad news… they’re out of stock! 😦 BUT she has so many other cute ones, and I bet if you bug her enough, they’ll come back in stock! 😉

Make it Work for You, Girl

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey girl!

Let’s just cut to the chase.

Have you ever been shopping, when suddenly you come across the cutest piece on the sale rack, with a “final sale” tag on it, and you think, “Oh this is so cute! It’ll work for me!” And your friends says, “You should try it on!” And you say, “No it’s okay, looks like it’ll work!”

Just me?

Well.

I find myself here more times than not, you’d think I’d learn. But I just don’t have the patience for try on rooms, and I can’t pass up a good sale! You know what I’m saying!

Well that just happened to me a few weeks ago, and let’s just say I added to the pile of “can’t take these back, should’ve listened to Grace!”

Exhibit A.

Screen Shot 2018-04-20 at 10.09.33 AM

If you wanna watch the video, it’s HERE!

Dry Goods is the cutest, but I typically only shop the sale rack, cause as you may know I’m not made of money! Well, Dry Goods was one of our last stops, I saw the gingham, and I was sold.

I didn’t wanna try it on for multiple reasons, one of them being I was shoppinged-out (not a word?), two try-on rooms are a hassle, and three it was so cheap like might as well try it, right? Wrong.

My friends Grace did convince me to slip it on over my outfit in the middle of the store, so I did. And by the way, everything looks good over jeans and a sweater, lemme tell you.

From the front, the romper looked fine! And with jeans on, it was hard to see where my behind stopped and my leg began, so I was like, “Yeah, sure it fits!!” *purchase*

I take it home, leave it in the bag for a few days cause that’s my life, bring it out the next week to film that haul^ video. BAM. Too short. Too low. Hate it.

CRAP.

I looove gingham, and I had always had my eye on this romper in Dry Goods! I loved the floral print + the gingham, and the colors were gorgeous! But it just didn’t work for me, girl.

So here I am, left with a romper I can’t wear out because I don’t feel comfortable in it, and I can’t take it back either because it was final sale!

Wonderful.

Then, it hit me.

I slipped on the romper, added a white tee, and looked at myself in the mirror. Cute, but still needed something. I wasn’t about to show the world my cheeks. Then I remembered, girl, I have my FAVE SKIRT!

Threw it on and voilé!

A totally new outfit, that was even cuter than what we started with!! Praise Him.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Obsessed.

This skirt by ASOS, is one of my favorite items in my closet. It is so easy to pair with literally anything, even a romper!

So what am I trying to say here?

Try things on? Maybe.

Don’t just buy things because they’re on sale? Probably.

Listen to your bff? I guess.

But what I actually want you to know is: do something unconventional. Make it work for you, girl!

Wear a dress with skinny jeans. Wear a ribbed turtleneck under a dress. Wear a t-shirt under a dress. Wear a t-shirt OVER a dress. Wear a skirt with a romper.. you see where I’m going with this. I ended up liking the “romper” SO much better this way!

I loved the print of this romper SO much, so I wasn’t about to sell it or give it away, so I am so glad this outfit came together!!! And I got so many compliments on it too!

Back to the Basics | Amour Vert

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey Girl!

Happy almost weekend!

Today, let’s talk basics.

Every girl needs a few good basic tees, tanks, tops, for layering, for wearing in every season, and for just throwin’ on when you’ve got 5 minutes to get ready.

And let’s face it, not all basics are created equally. Actually most of the time, they’re not made in the best way possible. The Amour Vert is seeking to change that. When  Amour Vert reached out to me about joining in on their #ImpossiblySoftTee campaign, I was down.

SHOP the #ImpossiblySoftTees HERE!

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 presetProcessed with VSCO with a4 preset

Your girl loves her basic tees. But they have to be made right, and well. Sure you can spend $4 on a F21 tee, or $9 on a Target tee, and by year 2, it’s stretched out, shorter than it was when you bought it, and probably has a few tears on the seems. No thank you.

I want one where I know I can throw it on time and time again without fear of it breaking, stretching, or looking different than it did the day I bought it.

“Amour Vert’s specially engineered textiles and blended fabrics are crafted to be soft, flattering and long-lasting. We only use low-impact dyes and adopt a zero-waste philosophy.”

Sign me up!

I am so excited to be apart of this campaign, and my tee is PERFECT.  And they aren’t kidding when they say impossibly soft! 🙂 It’s so effortlessly beautiful, and I’m obsessed. You can purchase it HERE! I will absolutely be wearing tis tee time and time again, and you probably will be too! 😉

Spring Has Sprung!

Processed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 preset

So I guess spring has sprung, but has it though? Lol.

Here where I’m at, we’ve experienced some random bursts of 70, 60, 50 degree weather, and I really don’t know what to do about it. Sure, it’s great when it comes, so we crack out the sandals, the ice cream, and the spring decor, but it’s never here to stay, and we never know when it’s coming back!

It’s currently raining here as I write this, and it’s about 37 degrees, so needless to say, spring has definitely not sprung… but I am counting down the days until the warmer weather is here to stay.

But on a brighter, happier note, this dress is absolutely beautiful and perfect for spring.

I’ve teemed up with the sweet people of VICI for this post, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

VICI has some of the most unique, trendy pieces you will ever find; I am in totally in love with their stuff. Plus, it’s all amazing quality! I understand that things add up, so use code: CLAIRE20 at checkout! Anything I can do to help a sister out! 😉

Processed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 presetProcessed with VSCO with m5 preset

This. Dress.

Is anyone else crying over this one, or is that just me?

Seriously, every little detail of this dress is so perfect, I just knew I had to have it.

First off, I love white, especially for spring! Second, I love higher necklines! Third, I love sheer sleeves! Fourth, I love embroidered flowers! Fifth, I love the layered look of the bodice, it’s perfect for dancin’ 😉 It’s literally everything I’ve ever wanted in a dress.

You can purchase this baby HERE!

I love the sweet, feminine details of this dress! It’s so unique and beautiful! I also love the mix of sheer + not sheer to add texture and dimension! The colors are also so fun and great for spring and summer!

I think this dress would be so perfect for Easter Sunday, a bridal shower, a birthday party, any kind of party, even to run to Target in, you know what I’m saying? You can never be too overdressed 😉

To complete the look, I threw on a pair of white tassel earrings by SugarFix by Baublebar for Target, and a pair of some tan heeled sandals!
