Breezy Days: February 2015

How We Wore It: Spring Casual

February 25, 2015
I'm excited to be participating in this collaboration with some of my favorite bloggers! We are all drawing inspiration from Sasha's outfit picture on her blog Moiology. I love how feminine yet casual her look is, and I wanted to amp up the casual factor by adding a half bun & converse! 

I'm stoked that it is warming up which means more spring colors and slowly switching over to less layers and more sandals....SCORE! 

Check out how all these ladies drew inspiration from Sasha's outfit!

Hearts & Glitter

February 10, 2015
This is my fancy-comfy look for Valentines! I snagged this Lauren Conrad heart sweater from Kohls a couple years ago for $13 on the sale rack. Score! It's become a new favorite to pull out around the love-filled holiday. 

These arrow studs are at Francesca's for only $12, they are too cute! I'll be wearing them year-round :)

I can't wait to see what Ryan has planned for this weekend! I'm excited for a relaxing day with my sweetheart :)

Valentine's Stripes, Bows, and Polka Dots

February 7, 2015
Valentine's can be such a corny holiday, but I totally embrace it. Heart wreath? Heart pillows? Heart welcome mat? CHECK. It's so fun decorating and getting dressed up for themed holidays! I put together this Valentine's look with pieces from Francesca's, it would be the perfect look for when Ryan takes me out for a night on the town! 

This necklace is even MORE gorgeous in person! While it's not offered online, I picked it up from my local Francesca's Collections and was elated with my find. It is glitzy and festive without being over-the-top Valentines-y.

If you're here locally in Utah, you HAVE to visit my friend Nicole from Layers n' Lashes! She is not only the most adorable thing ever, but she's been doing my lash extensions lately and I'm in love with them. I appreciate the extra few minutes I get in the morning to sleep in because I wake up looking gorgeous ;)

What Valentine's Day look would be complete without some festive flowers? You all know how I love my flowers :) Stay tuned for another fun Valentine's look!

I enjoy showing my BFF that she is loved :) These pictures are from a blogger Galentines party I was invited to where I had a total blast! It was the perfect way to celebrate love and friendship :)
