 Usually when I go in a store, I’m on a mission. Very rarely do I go in and browse, just to buy. As in, if I am going into a store, it’s because I am there for a reason. Aka -I’m a woman on a mission. 

I do this to try my hardest from impulse shopping because impulse shopping is indeed my worst enemy haha! But that is exactly what I did with this top, and I am okay with it! 

On my way home from spin the other day,  I stopped into Anthropologie to find this dress. I had been obsessing over it for awhile, so I thought I might as well stop in to try and find it, post spin stench or not. I knew it was going to be a stretch finding it in petite, but for some reason I just knew it would be in the store. Well, I was wrong lol, but it was okay, because the first thing I saw when I walked in, was this peplum top. The colors and material immediately caught my eye, even though it was folded up on the table. It was one of those “dang it, this is definitely coming home with me” moments but I was totally okay with it. I have been picking up more and more pieces like this one because it does have those  warmer tones. It’s also extremely light & flattering so #doublewin

Since we are transferring into fall (how do we have less than a month left of summer!? I am trying to plan out my posts for the next few months. So if you would take this questionnaire (2 Questions) at the end of this post, it would be the bomb. Super simple. Two Questions basically asking what kind of posts you would like to see from me in the next three months! So if there is a specific post you have been looking for, you can tell me here! 

In other news, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was a little different. We had an unexpected tragedy happen in my family, so I spent majority of the weekend with my Dad & my sister. I’m looking forward to this week though because it will be a short week for Colton and I. We are heading out of town for Labor Day (can you guess where we are going?!?) & I am so excited to just get away with him for a few days. 

Have a great Monday you all!

My Summer Wish List

Outfit Details: Anthropologie Dress (similar) // Soludos Sandals // Rebecca Minkoff Purse // Tassel Earrings // YSL Lipstick (shade 203)

As of last week, it is officially summertime. Even though, I personally feel like summer began in June. Maybe even late May! It’s just, when it’s 95 degrees+ outside, that counts as summer my book! 

So even though “my summer” has started off pretty great (to say the least!), there are still a few things on my bucket list that I would like to do before summers goes.

  1. Host a Sunday dinner for friends. Preferably outside if it’s not too hot!
  2. Make my way to New Orleans for the Red Dress Run and to visit my bf Annie Boo.
  3. Have a full on pool day one Saturday before the water starts to get to warm. I want to have a ton of people over and just grill and drink by the pool all day long! Maybe even have a few Margarita Popsicles while we’re at it 😉 
  4. Pick a venue (& location!) for our wedding. We’re really in between three big options (large black tie, small & intimate, or destination) If you have suggestions, help me!
  5. Host a Birthday Party for Life to Lauren!! I can’t believe it’s almost been a year & I really want to do something fun for it, 
  6. Go on one more beach get away. The sand is calling my name!
  7. Try to start getting back into my early morning workouts. There is just something about getting up early for a sweat session that I love.
  8. Declutter the apartment and get rid of things that truly just take up space. I am in a serious redecorating mood and I am thinking about starting a IG page to sell a ton of decor on. Thoughts? 
  9. Visit one of my best friends Haley, in Los Angeles. I missed the girls trip in June so I really want to make this one work!
  10. Try a few new brunch places around the city! So far I’m looking at a few on this list
