Weekending & Exciting Life Update!!!!

Hello my dolls!  Welcome back from the weekend.  Last week was jam packed and it was so nice to relax this weekend.  So last week I had the privilege of shooting with my favorite designer Amanda Uprichard.  As you may know, I feature a lot of pieces from her.  Her designs are so feminine and flattering.  The price point are staple piece prices but I will tell you the quality is worth every penny.  The silk pieces are thick and do not wrinkle even in the Florida sweaty heat.  I love that all of her work is made in the USA, New York specifically.  I’m always stalking Revolve and Shopbop to see the latest pieces.  You can also shop exclusive pieces on her site itself. Can we even talk about the back of this gorgeous jumpsuit?!?!

I also love this blush dress, just make sure to size up on it.  It took like two sets of hands to squeeze me into this one lol.

So I’ve been dying to tell you guys all some big news!  Mark and I finally bought our first home together!  It all came together very quickly but I could not be happier.  It’s everything I’ve been looking for and more.  It has a big lot, a garage (such a novelty in South Tampa!) the school district we want and plenty of room to grow into.  That is why things have been a little quiet around here lately. Moving has been quite the process.  I honestly feel like if you can survive moving with your significant other and still be talking to them at the end of the day…..you can survive anything.

p.s shot this on a tripod in the rain….naturally.  Dress find here |||  sunnies here  ||| gray slides find here on sale!


I can’t wait to show you some of my favorite parts within the house but for now, we are still in the midst of unboxing.  As some of you may remember I moved into Marks condo after we got married…….framed jerseys above the couch and all.  I am so excited to build a home together.  Get ready for the paint swatches and interior decorating.  I need some of your favorite gray paint names please!  For now, I will need to work on ways to fill up this room.  I already bought my first piece of “furniture” and it’s this bench from Wayfair.  I love the stud work on it and it’s very sturdy.

glamorous moving in pictures but this is leading into our master that is no longer painted mint green…..


Very exciting things.  I have room to take selfie pictures of outfits….it’s the little things in life right?

Thank you to everyone for your love and support.  I’m so excited for this next chapter in our lives!
