Must Have Tops
Thursday, October 19, 2017 2 Comments Images

Hello loves.
So, I don't know about you guys, but do you ever have those nights where you seriously feel like no matter what you do, you simply cannot get comfy and have a good night sleep? Well, last night was one of those nights, so if my English and grammar is sub-par today, that is why! I don't understand why that happens, nothing changed with my bed, I was definitely tired, I am not overly stressed about anything, I simply laid there and could not fall asleep. So what did I do? Read a great book? Nah. Go out in my front room and get a little late night workout in? Nah. I browsed. Aimlessly. For hours. Then I thought about 40 million different things...my family, work, tasks needed to be done, places we want to visit, the boys school, Halloween, food (of course food haha)....and yet you know what, as I laid there in bed, I couldn't help but feel so overwhelmingly thankful for life and everything that it brings. We are so lucky to be alive and to be able to experience every single day. I may be dead tired and not functioning like normal, but I am alive and I get to spend this new day making choices, building relationships, spending time with those I love, and chasing my dreams.

Sorry to ramble on, but I guess what I am trying to say to you today is this: remember that life is such an amazing gift, and what we do with that life is up to us. Every single day we get to choose to make the most of the day or not to. I love all of you and am so thankful to you for your love and support! I hope each of you have a wonderful day and choose to make it great!

I have linked some of my favorite tops to wear on a daily below as well, so check them out!!

White Accents
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 4 Comments Images

Hello loves. Happy humpday to all ya'll. I hope this post finds you happy, healthy, and well.

Today is all about the accents with accessories. I have taken a pretty simple outfit, don't get me wrong I love these jeans and I love this top, but the back to my point...I have taken a simple look and with a few key accessories, given it some pop! Some pizazz, some wow factor! The dad hat (just launched here at caralorenshop) and the white booties give the look the edge it might have been missing otherwise. I especially love that they pop of white comes at the top and the bottom, giving the look just the right accents in just the right places. What do you think? Do you like the white on white accessories? Also, if you are digging using accessories to accent a look, what are your favorites to do it with? Bags, hats, shoes, sunnies, all of the above? I would love to hear your thoughts. I also mixed in the grey bag from Rebecca Minkoff that is the perfect neutral color and a bag that can literally be matched with any look, from casual to gym to formal!

Well, that is is for me today, I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! Smile more, do more, laugh more, cry more (sometimes this is needed you know), love more, and live more! I love you all!!

Hey gang! Happy Monday, it's a new week baby, let's get after it and make it a great one!! So I am asked quite often via DM's and emails about certain looks and/or pieces that I post to IG and my other social platforms, and sometimes I don't get to those swiping up or sharing those links on every look or outfit during that day or week. So I thought today I would do a roundup of a bunch of different looks I have worn recently and link where are each of the pieces are from below! I hope this is helpful, let me know if it is, and if you want me to keep doing roundup posts like this. I love your feedback and it really helps me to know what you want to see and read from me!

Sail Away
Wednesday, October 11, 2017 22 Comments Images

Happy humpday ya'll. Today, as the leaves begin to change here in Utah and the Fall weather starts to settle in, I thought...I don't know if I'm ready for cold. Then I thought, well I don't really control the weather and it is going to continue to get cooler and cooler here where I live, whether I am ready or not. So you know what...I am going to do the next best thing I can control when it come to the weather...throw it back to sunny days in Marco Island here on the blog.

Now don't get me wrong, I love the Fall, it is one of my absolute favorite times of year, and dressing for the Fall might be my number one when it comes to fashion, but sometimes I want to reflect and jump back to the warm sun, beautiful ocean, and a sail boat. So that is what I have done today. These pics were taken as we spent the day sailing the ocean down in Marco Island. We had the coolest captain ever, he had been sailing for the last 20 years and the boys thought it was so awesome to be sailing on a "moana" boat. We sailed out to a few of the other islands, searched for different kinds of birds, chased dolphins, found some seashells and crabs, played in the sand, and then headed back to where we started. It was a magical day, and one I don't think I will ever forget...and one I don't think the boys will either. Hard to forget your first time ever sailing. Any who, I hope you all enjoy my little flashback, I have linked the suit and sunnies, and the hat is coming soon!

Thanks for following and I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
