Good Morning & Hello from San Diego! 

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Colton and I pretty much laid low all weekend long, since we both had to leave out of town, for work on Sunday. Lots of early dinners, catching up on TV shows and sleeping in consumed our weekend. So yeah, now I’m here in San Diego, doing my companies first trade show of the year, and for those of you who do not know, a major part of my day job is fully putting together trade shows. I set up everything from the booth itself, to its designs, pamphlets, give aways and more. It’s definitely my favorite part of my job. I love traveling and getting to meet new people. I haven’t been to San Diego in almost five years, so I am really excited to be here for the week. Yesterday we spent the day in La Jolla and it was just absolutely beautiful. 

I wanted to share this look with you today because this gingham top is FINALLY back in stock from Good Night Macaroon. I wore it over New Years while in New Orleans and received more than a million compliments on it. I really liked the blouse, but I was shocked as to how many comments I actually received from it. It has been a really great “transitioning top” because it is super light weight but is still long sleeve.  Also, these Steve Madden sandals  were a favorite of mine last spring/summer and are still making a statement in every store this up coming season! 

If you watch my Insta stories, then you know I am in the process of transferring over my blog to a different hosting site. Instead of paying for someone to do it for me, I decided to take on the task my self and it has been a little but difficult, to say the least! Literally, I don’t know what I was thinking! So if things start to look a little bit different on here, then you know why! Hopefully ya’ll wont notice anything 🙂 

Any who, I hope you all have a great week! I’ll be coming home Thursday, just in time for the Super Bowl and I cannot wait! 

xo,

Lauren

Happy Friday Loves!

After a week of long posts, I wanted to keep today short and sweet! First off, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent a sweet message concerning Colton and I’s wedding plans. You guys are the best! 

As I was organizing my photos for the week, I realized that I had completely forgotten to post this look! I was supposed to post it during the Holidays but ran out of time. This sweater is from Shein and is only $28 (holla!). It’s also incredibly soft and warm. I loved pairing it with this white oxford to give it a classic, yet edgy touch. Then the pop of red makes it stand out!  Ya’ll know I love a good pop of red. If you guys haven’t shopped at Shein before, I really do recommend it. For a long time, I think I was a little skeptical because the prices are almost too good to be true, but so far I have had no problems and have loved everything I have gotten. Like this ruffled blouse! It’s still my fav. 

This weekend we are going to a Black Tie wedding (so fun!) and then we have a Birthday Brunch for one of my sweet friends on Sunday. Other than that, I plan on taking it easy! 

Have a great weekend! 

xo,

Lauren

My goodness, how is it already Monday? This weekend literally flew by for us. As you may know, Colton and I went to Waco, to go to the Baylor football game and to say it brought back all of the feels is the understatement of the century. 

Before heading out, I had to run a million errands. Small errands, but ones that needed to be done before heading out of town, once again. I was short on time, so I really wasn’t concerned about what I was wearing. I was going more for comfort and convenience to say the least-lol. Like I definitely wasn’t wearing makeup and the Nikes I had on, may or may not have had a hole in them. So of course, this was the time that I not only ran into almost everyone I knew, but a few readers as well. After running into about the fifth person, I called my mom to tell her how mortified I was about my appearance. I mean, here I am, supposedly this “blogger”, giving out fashion advice and I look like a train wreck! She said, “Lauren, you know, they probably don’t care and to be honest, it makes you more relatable”. When she said it, I immediately felt ridiculous because the truth is, I am not dressed perfectly all of the time and I do have days where I am running around like a total hot mess. 

When I do dress up, it is usually for work, dinners, events & parties. The rest of the time, this is most likely what you will catch me in. I wear workout clothes or the equivalent to workout clothing probably 75% of the time. For example, this Lululemon Long Sleeve Top that I have literally been living in since I bought it. I know that Lulu is #sobasic… but I can’t help but love it. I don’t buy ll of my workout apparel from there, but the items I do buy, I wear a lot. For example, these shorts are the only shorts I will work out in and I own about 5 pairs. I’m telling you, when I find something I like, I stick with it. This is my morning walk with Bentley outfit, my quick trip to the grocery store throw on, my cooking dinner and running errands go-to. 

In other news, the rest of this week is kind of jammed packed for me and I am just praying it all goes by smoothly. I have a meeting on Tuesday for an upcoming project that I am so excited to share with you all, my Moms birthday is on Wednesday, I’ll be trying out Orange Theory Fitness for the first time, my little from my sorority officially moves to Houston, Kick Ball is starting back up Thursday, one of my best friends is coming in for the weekend from Minnesota, and little Hannah J is going to her very first Homecoming! 

Have a great week 🙂

Lauren
