Looking Back
Thursday, October 23, 2014 19 Comments Images

When I saw that Virgos Lounge had this dress in black, I knew it was fate.  I have had a couple different dresses from Virgos Lounge and every one is simply impeccable.  This dress is one that I will keep forever and pull out for those special occasions.  I wish I would have known about Virgos Lounge when I was getting married because their dresses would have been perfect for bridesmaids. I don't really know how weddings got brought into this, but does anyone else ever think about their wedding and wonder what you would do different now?  Mine was 5 years ago and I already think I would have changed things.  Don't get me wrong...I still love it and all the memories I have, there are just so many ideas out there now.  To be honest, I think I would be a little overwhelmed trying to plan a wedding now.  Anyway, I would have totally used these Virgos Lounge dresses if I could go back.  Is anyone else with me on this?

The Perfect Fit
Wednesday, October 22, 2014 13 Comments Images

I am so excited that Fall has arrived because it means boots, jackets, and my favorite....layering. I love this dress, and I am loving it even more with this leather jacket.  This dress will be one I will go back to when spring comes along as well because it would be perfect with strappy sandals.  The fit of this dress is actually my favorite.  I feel like it's hot without having to be hot.....if that makes sense?  I usually don't use that word to describe an outfit, but what girl doesn't want to feel hot every now and then?  I mean I still like feeling cute for my hubby, and I think that's a good thing.  Anyways, do any of you agree with me, or am I just getting on one of my little rants again?
This fabulous dress I am rambling on about is from The Coverii, and they have a ton of gorgeous pieces.  I have a few different pieces from them and every one is amazing quality, and a piece I will wear over and over again.  Make sure to check out The Coverii, you won't be disappointed!
p.s. The Coverii is giving all Cara Loren followers 20% off with code "caraloren", so happy shopping!

I am so excited to show you this post because I am so in love with this camera bag from Jo Totes!  I mean it looks like a pretty fabulous purse right!?  That is my favorite part about it, I love that I don't look like I'm hauling around my camera in an ugly case.  It fits my camera body and a lens, along with a few purse essentials which I always need.  It's all padded inside and comes with padded dividers as well, so the camera and lens are both well protected.  On a side not it's an awesome diaper bag as well with the dividers......that stuff is just always on my mind.  I wish you could hold the bag and see the actual leather because it is stunning, honestly I didn't think a camera bag could be so cool! Have a great Tuesday, love you all!

Mermaid Curls
Sunday, October 19, 2014 19 Comments Images

Today's post is all about those messy mermaid curls that I am absolutely loving lately!  I am using my trusty NuMe Titan3 set to achieve these curls.  You can watch the tutorial and hopefully it will all make perfect sense, but I am using the largest wand and the medium wand for these curls today.  The Titan wand is a must for me because I can sleep in these curls and they still look fresh the next day. I also have to mention that because of these titanium barrels my hair continues to look shiny and healthy which is always important.  I get tons of questions about this because sometimes it's hard to keep blonde hair shiny, but I really think if you are going to use heat on your hair these wands help a ton. I hope you guys like the tutorial and please let me know what other kind of curls you would like to see.  Have a fabulous Monday!

Brightening Up

Ever since having Arrow I have really felt like I need teeth whitening.  I have been using this kit from Smile Sciences and I am beyond thrilled about the results! Smile Sciences prides prides themselves in teeth whitening that is not only safe and effective, but pain and sensitive free.  I have to say that I couldn't agree more and it's much cheaper than going to the dentist office....which is always a plus. You can watch this tutorial to see all the details, it's super simple to use! I hope you enjoy and let me know if you try it, I want to hear if you love it as much as I do!

Darkness Falls
Thursday, October 16, 2014 14 Comments Images

We were out yesterday running errands and we went to snap a few pics not realizing it was dark by 6:00 that night, hence the darkness.  This is a true sign that fall is here and I can't quite decide how I feel about it.  Don't get me wrong, I lOVE fall.....I just love summer too! I love everything about fall except it getting darker earlier.  For some reason I just HATE it.  It makes me feel like the nights are so quick and we don't have any time to play! I don't know if anyone else agrees but I am definitely going to continue wishing for the sunlight!

Not the Norm
Tuesday, October 14, 2014 27 Comments Images

While I was pregnant, all I wanted to wear was high-waisted things and now I remember why! I don't know what it is about them, but I feel like high-waisted items are so feminine yet so cool at the same time.  Everything from skirts, pants, shorts....everything! Don't get me wrong, I loved being pregnant and growing that little man inside me, but I was excited to expand my wardrobe a little bit. 
I paired this high-waisted skirt with a fun casual sweatshirt to mix up the look a little bit.  I would normally pair this skirt with a blouse or something a little more dressy, but I think it's always fun to try new things and I really like how it turned out.
Oh and if you can't already tell, I'm really into relaxed ponies lately.  Not only because they take me less than 1 minute in the morning, but I'm loving the effortless vibe they put off.  Are you guys onboard with the casual pony look or what's your take on it?
