Today's Everyday Fashion: My Office Style Secret


When it comes to spending my clothing budget I don't mind shopping for casual/weekends. I get excited for special occasions, and I love accessories. But I don't love spending money on office-type outfits. So I've developed a preference for buying those items secondhand. It's cheaper, it's good for the environment, and I've actually found some super-cute stuff. Like this floral pencil skirt which is lightweight and so perfect for summer! I rounded up some similar options below.

Top: JCPenney, $15 (similar, plus, similar)
Skirt: Cynthia Rowley c/o thredUP, $14 (similar below)
Shoes: JCPenney, $30 (similarsimilarsimilar)
Purse: Aldo/Amazon, $40 (similarsimilar, similar)
Earrings:, $5 (similar)
Approx. dates: Top and purse are 3 years ago. Shoes are 1 year ago. Skirt is newly thrifted.

Today's Everyday Fashion: Kelly's Ice Cream


Fashion inspiration comes from so many places. And this time it just happens to be a literal place! We've been frequenting Kelly's Ice Cream since it opened a couple years ago and I was dying to take some photos there. (Lucky for us they said "yes!") I was so inspired by their pink aesthetic that I wound up looking a bit like a Kelly's Ice Cream mascot, and I am totally okay with that. This is one of my favorite outfits of all time, and adding a little ice cream to the mix only makes it that much more fun!

Today's Everyday Fashion: Heron Kay At Sunset


We love exploring new places together, and our recent trip to historic Mount Dora was no exception. As we drove past this particular bed & breakfast I asked Joshua to pull over. I knocked on the door and asked if we could take some photos there because it was breathtakingly gorgeous! The sun was just starting to set and the light was perfect; my hair was a mess from the wind so I pulled it back with the scarf. And we had the best dinner date at a cute little place (as seen in my IG story) before we headed home. It was such a dreamy night!

When two brands like Lord & Taylor and Walmart combine forces you know it’s going to be good. And that’s exactly the case with the new Lord & Taylor Premium Brands Shop on! It’s precisely what it sounds like – you can now shop premium brands from Lord & Taylor – right there on

It launched less than two weeks ago, and I was able to give it a try and place an order right away. The process was seamless, the items are very clearly organized and marked as “premium brands” within and the best part – free shipping and returns!! I’ve always loved Lord & Taylor but I am so much more inclined to shop with free 2-day shipping on select orders  $35+ and free returns on

Perhaps the biggest motivation to shop though: I luh-ved the items I found. The dreamy pink floral dress is by Wish, my adorable shoes are Jessica Simpson, the convertible purse (you can wear it on your shoulder OR on your belt) is by Lord & Taylor, and my stripe top is UK brand Miss Selfridge.

Check out the Lord & Taylor Premium Brands Shop on and tell me what you think!!

(Also – I cannot stress this enough but we did not vandalize this fountain and put bubbles in it for our photo shoot. I might be extra but not that extra. 😆 )
