80’s-Inspired Outfit with Express

April 7, 2017

80's-inspired outfit

I've taken a little break from blogging because I was battling a viral chest infection that I caught while traveling abroad. I'm finally back to 100% and feeling much more energized to work on the blog.

So I've teamed up with Express to share how to incorporate the totally rad 1980's into your everyday wardrobe with metallic colors, bold shoulders, sweetheart necklines and ripped denim.

Summer Whites at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Summer Whites at the Missouri Botanical Gardens

Summer nights in summer whites at the Missouri Botanical Garden is the dreamiest way to spend an evening in my opinion. I may be a little biased considering we had our wedding reception at the Spink Pavilion in the garden, but I love visiting this floral oasis in St. Louis.

How I Stay Comfydent Working for Myself

August 16, 2016

For the past five years, I have more or less worked for myself - owning a wedding invitation design business, freelance graphic design and writing this blog. I ditched the corporate world and said 'goodbye' to a 9-to-5 job.

While I love the freedom that I have to create my own schedule, taking this unconventional career path definitely creates moments where I don't feel like I measure up amongst my peers. After all, it's just me out there. No team, no management.

When I'm on deadline, the last thing I want to be thinking about is how uncomfortable my bra is or how badly I want to change my outfit.

Lilly Pulitzer Blythe Dress and Monogrammed Straw Clutch

Lilly Pulitzer Blythe Dress and Monogrammed Straw Clutch

What's more perfect than a Lilly Pulitzer Blythe Dress and Monogrammed Straw Clutch for a bright, colorful look at the beach? Not much in my opinion!

I've always been a fan of the bold prints from Lilly, but never owned one of her iconic dresses. So after a rain-soaked afternoon hiding indoors, I purchased my first Lilly dress at Barefoot Princess in WaterColor in a fun, fresh 'light as a feather' pattern.

Cabana Life SPF Coverup Dress

August 8, 2016


I am spending the week in WaterColor, Florida, for a beach vacation with my entire family and this Cabana Life SPF Coverup Dress has been a lifesaver! It not only has 50+ UV protection, it is lightweight, breathable and looks super cute for riding to the beach and around the pool.
