Happy Monday Ya’ll! 

How was everyone’s weekend? Ours was incredibly low-key and exactly how I wanted it. Every time Colton and I had the opportunity to really make plans, we kind of steered away and chose to relax instead. Friday , we had a very chill dinner with my Dad and talked wedding business; Saturday – I had pilates in the morning, grabbed a spontaneous boozy lunch with Colton and spent the rest of the day at the park with Bentley; Then Sunday was incredibly low key (like we watched 5 episodes of Shameless), cleaned the apartment and had a last minute Valentine’s Day shoot. It was still busy, but we didn’t have plans nor real obligations or commitments and it was just really nice. We have been so busy recently and for my own sanity, I really needed to decompress. 

This week is going to be absolutely crazy though! Tuesday is Valentine’s Day, Thursday we leave for NYC and Friday is my Birthday! It’s going to definitely be a super fun week and I cannot wait! I’ll expand more on Friday ,on my thoughts on turning 25, but I’ll go ahead and let you know now, that it is definitely sinking in and starting to feel real, that I am actually going to be 25 years old. 

Any who, onto this amazing little satin number I am wearing! The moment I saw this satin outfit pop up on the Nordstrom website, there was no hesitation that it was going in my shopping cart. I honestly feel like I have been waiting for this outfit my entire life (lol). It’s sophisticated, it’s sexy, it’s classic, and extremely affordable. I bought the satin top in an xs but I wish I would have ordered it in a small instead and the satin bottoms are an xs as well, but fit perfectly. My only complaint, is that they are a tad bit long on me, but what can I say… I am only 5 feet tall! None-the-less, it’s outfits like this one that just make you just feel so confident. Also, the nude tones are absolutely perfect for transitioning into spring. I swear I have been living in nude tones recently! 

What do you guys think of this satin set?! Is it a yay or a nay? 

Oh and Happy official Galentine’s Day!:)

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 Humpday guys! 

I don’t know about you all, but I am selfishly really excited for today because tomorrow we are heading to Mexico! We have been planning this trip with 10 of my closest friends from high school, since like September, so I can’t believe it is finally here! 

I’m just ready to get away and be in the beautiful weather. For anyone that lives in Texas,  you’re more than aware that our weather has been extremely bipolar. One weekend it is snowing in areas and a high of 35 and the very next day we are reaching the high 80’s. Like I said, bipolar. Any who, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was craving the spring time now that the holidays have passed.  Does anybody else feel that way? It’s like, I want it to be cold for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but as soon as those two pass I am ready for patio weather!

Regardless, I know that Texas will definitely throw a few more frigid days our way. Despite when it’s time to put up my coats, one item that I will continue to wear are these distressed jeans. I have been living in this exact pair . They are a little bit pricer, but my goodness are they comfortable and flattering. Definitely true to size. If you would like to spend less, here is much cheaper option

Also, your also going to see below a link to my 2017 Survey. If you guys would please take the time to complete it, it would mean the world! I mean SO much! It’s only 8 questions, will take you less than 3 minutes and is completely anonymous. I did this at the beginning of 2016 as well and it helped me tremendously. 

It’s an easy way for me to hear from you guys, as well as help me bring you guys the best content that I can. 

You can find the survey link here!
