Distressed Denim

Ray-Ban Sunnies (On sale) 

These shorts may have been my best purchase of the summer. I've been living in them..I literally don't wear anything else. A good pair of distressed denim can do wonders. They go with everything from weekend casual to date nights with Brandon. (P.S. We just got done watching two more Gossip Girl episodes on Netflix. I told you he was obsessed!) I'm a firm believer that distressed denim looks better dressed up than regular old denim. I love the juxtaposition of high and low, the character and uniqueness of them. If I could wear them to my day job I would. Speaking of work I have a pretty busy day today. My full day of work is accompanied by 3 hours of meetings post office hours at one of my favorite spots in Des Moines, Malo. I can't wait to sip on some sangria peeps. It's so yummy. Enjoy your Tuesday!

Bright Blue

Mexico was amazing and my girlfriend Emily looked amazing at her wedding. Her wedding definitely solidified the fact that I want a destination wedding one day. They're so carefree and beautiful. The boyfriend and I had quite an amazing weekend. I can't share the details but maybe soon! I also got him hooked on Gossip Girl and by hooked I mean obsessed (I hope he doesn't read this...he'll kill me for saying that!). Back to Meixco...If I wasn't wearing boho neutrals while there, I was rocking bold brights like this dress from Lulu*s. I swear this bright blue looks good—and tan—on everyone.

Mexico Travel Attire

H&M Blouse (Similar)
Chanel Shoes
Brian Atwood Bag (On MAJOR sale)

I'm back!! Mexico was amazing but I could of stayed a few more days. I'm pretty exhausted from trying to get caught up on work and life after being sick and gone for so long. I wanted to share a peak at what I wore on the plane ride to Mexico. When I travel I do two things: wear comfy shoes and layer. This stripe dress was so comfy and easy to travel in. It's from Swell which is one of my favorite places to shop online. I also seem to get cold on airplanes so a soft chambray blouse was a no-brainer to toss on and tie or wrap around my waist when we finally got to Mexico. And I treated myself to this Brian Atwood bag that is on mega sale. If you like it, definitely take advantage of this deal
