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!

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

Gingham Goals | Shop Thriver

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

Hi girlfriend!

A few weekends ago, I headed to the cutest outdoor, springy event with my mom, sister, and best friend, and it was so fun! We’re talking shopping, food trucks, and the cutest flower truck! I actually did a photoshoot last year for the flower truck company if you wanna check it out too!

It was a gorgeous spring day filled with laughter and fun, and don’t forget the ice cream! 😉

I wore the cutest little blouse from Thriver, which is an adorable women’s clothing store based out of Portland, OR.

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

I was so excited to collaborate with them, their stores is incredible! You have to check out their Spring Collection!

This blouse is the actual cutest!

If you’ve learned one thing from me by now it’s that I love gingham!! It’s my favorite! And this top is totally gingham goals.

And of course I love floral print, I mean is it even spring if you don’t wear floral print???

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

The details of this blouse are just too cute! Like are you seeing the sleeve ruffles? SO CUTE! I love how feminine and fun it is! I’m kind of getting little farm girl vibes, but like in all the right ways! Lol.

You could pair it with black denim, white pants, shorts, even a skirt! The possibilities are endless! It’s such a great blouse to have in your closet for spring & summer!

You can purchase it HERE!

I paired my blouse with some super fun denim & my favorite espadrilles!

Retro Vibes | Olive + Pepper

IMG_3711IMG_3716

Hey girl!

I am SO excited about tonight’s post! I have been following Olive + Pepper on Instagram for quite some time, so when we got a collaboration in the works, I was ecstatic.

Their vibe is everything I’ve ever wanted to be in life, and their clothes are everything I wish I had in my closet.

I LOVE how unique their style is, and how they don’t stick to the traditional “boutique” world of clothing. They are doing something that not many boutiques are! All their clothing is incredible quality and all under $100!!

Olive + Pepper has some super fun pieces (not including the amazing ones I’m about to show you), so you just have to check them out for yourself: SHOP!

IMG_3714IMG_0223.JPGIMG_3712

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS LOOK.

I paired their Mona tie-front blouse with their Terra woven culottes. Major win.

I am so into the retro-esque button up, short sleeve tops we’re seeing everywhere! Olive + Pepper has another option to choose from that’s just as cute: Darla Top.

I am so in love with these pants! The Terra woven culottes are SO COMFY & versatile!! They are so easy to throw on and go! Plus, they will look goof with literally anything.

IMG_0219.jpeg

And of course, girl, we’ve got to accessorize!

I paired this retro look with some retro sunnies & a hair scarf, because you can’t go wrong with a hair scarf, am I right?

IMG_3717

These sunnies are SO fun, and I’ve always wanted a pair!! They come in so many amazing colors, and they have tons of other options too! (All retro-inspired!)

Shop my glasses HERE! I got mine in the “black & pink” combo!

And last, but not least.

IMG_0046

I am a hair scarf, head scarf, neck scarf kind of GIRL.

Just follow me on Instagram, and you will see that to be true! I am always on the hunt for more, because you can never have too many… they’re like shoes.. only different. BUT this one is hands down my new fave!

Shop my floral scarf HERE!

It is made SO well. You know how you can tell the difference between, say an eBay scarf vs. a Von Maur scarf? That’s what we’re cooking with here. This scarf is so nicely made, and it doesn’t feel like it could rip at any second. It really is nice.

You could tie it around your neck, tie it around your pony or bun, wear it as a headband, or even use it as a belt.

Plus, it comes in other color options too! AMAZING!

Sorry to say, girl, but my shoes are last season Forever 21! Here are a somewhat similar pair!

Pastels with Polly Ruth

Hey friends!

Welcome back 🙂

Today’s post is in collaboration with Polly Ruth Boutique! Also, shoutout to The Flying Cupcake for allowing us to shoot there… I mean, come on… could this dress match this bakery any better?

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

This. Dress.

I don’t think it could scream “Happy Spring!” any louder.

Purchase it HERE!

I love the colors of this beauty. The combo of the pastel mint + baby pink is just too pretty, and obviously works well together, hence all of the decor of the bakery. Lol.

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

I absolutely LOVE the length of this dress too! I am not one to wear super short dresses and skirts, so this one was right up my alley. It’s super comfortable as well, and very easy to just throw on and go!

It has very unique seam details throughout the bodice as well, which adds a unique, fun element to the already super-fun-dress.

I’ve mentioned before that I lead worship at my church, so this dress is perfect for me too because I am able to wear it on stage because of the length!

Speaking of, I think this would make the most perfect dress for Easter! So so springy & pretty!

You could easily dress it down, and wear a jean jacket and some flat mules, like I wore. Or you could dress it up a bit with some heeled sandals and more jewelry!

My shoes & bag are by VICI, but here are similar options:

Flats

Same bag, different color

And my earrings are by BauebleBar: Sugarfix by BaubleBar Triad Ball Drop Earrings

If you’re curious, my lip color is “Double Scoop” by Colourpop, and there’s a tutorial on a similar makeup look on my channel, using this lip color: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d36M3l45Glo

And most importantly, my cupcake is the “Pretty in Pink”, which is strawberry with cream cheese frosting, and it’s the best.

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!
