MAHI Leather Weekender.

One of the many perks to moving to Southern California was having the ability to visit so many beautiful places within just a couple hours drive. On any given weekend Reece and I might decide to drive up the coast, stay in a cute little beach town or drive out to the desert for a…

Hey guys! How’s the Labor Day recovery going for everyone? I’m still a tad sunburned but finally feeling a little better today! My husband and I had a very nonproductive Labor Day weekend which mostly consisted of laying around watching OZARK on Netflix  when indoors (sooooo good btw) and also laying on the beach enjoying…

California Casual.

Comfortability for me these days is top of my list, especially during the day when running errands, etc … and these pants from Quicksilver DO NOT disappoint! High waisted and pleated in the mid section allows tons of room and comfiness! I absolutely love that they’re cropped and obviously pockets makes any outfit a million…

Billabong + Levi’s.

Summer’s almost over and while it seems as though my feed is already starting to fill up with sweater posts, I’m going to hold onto summer a little bit longer and share with you guys one of my favorite summer outfits from our stay in Waikiki Beach, HI. The Levi’s are totally vintage, once owned…

Decorating With Thrift Store Finds.

  Before … And now the afters … What can I say, I’m a hardcore thrifter. I love, love, love finding a steal and when I can incorporate my findings into my decor or wardrobe, well, that’s a win win for me! We live in a four bedroom house with two bedrooms to spare and…

North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii

Hey guys, heeeyyyyy! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here! The reasons are many, but besides lack of content due to life getting busy I’ve also been working on a new project that has completely consumed my mind in nothing but good ways! I’ll be sharing details soon enough but until then I’ve…

Cropped Wide Leg Pants.

Happy Hump Day, guys! This won’t be a super long post but I wanted to jump on here real quick and share a styling tip regarding these ADORABLE trousers! So basically, at 5’3″, I’m kind of a shorty. And most times I find it difficult to find jeans, especially cropped jeans to fit me, as…

Monday.

I know it’s Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but according to statistics, there will be 5,000 weddings, 10,000 child births, and 42 million hugs occurring today. Also, today there will be at least 4 people who win multimillion dollar lotteries, 600 people will get promotions at work, and 3,000 people will lose…

With Awareness, Reality Shifts.

Today feels sad. Not one, but two … in one week. The heaviness that lingers in the knowing and unknowing of what one is going through, their minds in their darkest moments is now front and center and can no longer be ignored.  People of success can be tortured too and if any lesson is…

Taste The Rainbow.

“One morning she woke up different. Done with trying to figure out who was with her, against her, or walking down the middle because they didn’t have the guts to pick a side. She was done with anything that didn’t bring her peace. She realized that opinions were a dime a dozen, validation was for…
