This past weekend was quite warm so the layers were ditched for my new favorite ripped boyfriend jeans and this cute crop top. I'm definitely ready to cozy back up in my fall clothing but that probably won't happen anytime soon. I'm heading to Florida next week for my cousin's wedding. I cannot wait for some beach time. But...I'm not exactly excited to pack. I want to bring the bare minimum and basically live in my bikini for the 5 days I'm there.  I'm thinking of packing this dress, this dress and this dress. Which one is your favorite?

Fall & Family

On September 16th I was challenged to abandon all forms of social media. It couldn't have happened at a better time because it was right after I got back from Fashion Week. I was happy to say goodbye to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and my blog after revolving my life around it for the past week. I was shocked to feel zero stress and I found myself wanting to be outside enjoying the breezy fall weather with my dogs and boyfriend. Brandon was very happy that I didn't look at my computer or phone all night. We love taking the pups to the lake so after I got home from work, I put down my phone and we headed to play. I definitely need to do it more often. It's a weirdly freeing feeling and disconnecting is so important to actually live in the real world. I highly recommend trying a social media cleanse of your own so you can enjoy living in the moment for one full day. You deserve it!

 Speaking of fall, all of my favorite shows are coming back and a few new ones are starting. I had the chance to watch the pilot of a new show called Selfie. It was hilarious and definitely a little eye opening. The show is about a girl who has 263,000 Instagram followers but quickly finds out that social media friends aren't the same as having friends in real life. With he help of a co-worker, she works to rebrand her self-obsessed reputation, learn how to connect with others and truly makeover her life. Make sure to tune in tomorrow at 8/7c on ABC to watch the premiere of the hilarious show Selfie! 

A big thank you to ABC & POPSUGAR Select for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Skirting It

TGIF! I wore this outfit when I was in New York. I've always thought midi skirts were so fun and girly but every time I tried them on, there was something that didn't work. Some were too long, too girly, or for whatever reason just didn't look good on me...until this JOA skirt from Lulu*s. I've fallen in love with it and while it's still very feminine for my tomboyish style I toughened it up with my favorite leather jacket
