Henry & Belle Collab

I had the opportunity to do a collaboration with one of my favs PB&J Boutique and an amazing line of jeans, Henry & Belle! Myself and two other bloggers choose a type of jeans we love to style and show how we would wear them everyday! I am loving the flare look and these Micro Flare Pure Indigo jeans are nothing less than perfect! I have a hard time finding jeans that fit me just right and these are now at the top of my list! They have that perfect amount of stretch without having too much stretch where they fall off halfway through the day! I want every pair to be honest haha So check out my look and the other fabulous looks as well!

Big News

Okay guys it is a really big day for me today, I am graduating!!! WAHOO!!! I don't know that i have ever been so relieved, excited, accomplished, and who else knows what.....I just feel great!!!! Now on top of that exciting news I have another little surprise! So as my graduation celebration/gift my hubs and I are going to EUROPE!!!! We leave in 5 days and are freaking out! We have decided to leave Hanes behind with grandma's/grandpa's and I have probably already had around 20 break downs about leaving him! I seriously have been bawling like a little baby! I have never been away from him for more than a couple days and I know this is going to be rough for me! I just continue to tell myself this is a once in a lifetime experience so enjoy it!
Now don't worry, while I'm gone the blog will still go on!! You will still get a daily outfit posts and all that fun stuff that I hope you love. The only down side is that I won't be able to answer emails, or questions or who knows what while I'm gone! So if you email me and think I am being mean by not answering I promise I am not! I will try to catch up on everything as soon as I get home, which is the 13th!!  Oh and I most likely won't be able to notify you of my posts each morning on facebook, instagram, twitter or everything else so make sure you just check in each morning to see my daily posts still!
Anyways you are still stuck with me for a few more days before I leave but I just wanted to let all my sweet followers know. Oh and make sure you are following on instagram. I am hoping to share as much as my trip with you as I can while I'm gone and I'm sure you will see more than enough when I get home! I love you all and am so thankful for all you sweet friends!!!

p.s. There was such an amazing turnout with the Elaine Turner giveaway that she wanted to give all my followers a 20% off coupon code to say Thank You! code: CARALOREN20
It's good for one month so don't miss out on the killer deal!

Spring Color Combo

Okay so this is one of my favorite color combo's of the season, some tans, creams, white, and a pop of citrus.  I feel like you can wear any pieces in these colors and it will still look springy and I love that!!
Oh my goodness and Hanes haha he kills me!! It's near impossible to get pictures of him lately but I love going through the pics after they are taken. I am usually laughing the entire time at the faces he makes and how crazy he is!

Dress To Impress

Okay so this may be one of the most perfect dresses I have ever worn! It fits me like a glove and I feel so girly and fun in it! I actually get to wear this darling dress for my brother in laws and soon to be sister in laws wedding in a couple months and I can't wait!! I instantly fell in love with this peachy color and can't wait to wear it again!! And I'm sorry Hanes wasn't in these pictures again! He fell asleep the second he got in the carseat and I just couldn't wake him....it's sad because he looked so cute and dapper too :(

Silhouette

I am loving this chill yet not chill outfit! I clearly love maxi skirts but look at how fun this one is! It's not just an ordinary maxi, it's a maxi with a little twist which is always good! You can tuck the ruffle in, wear it high waisted, wear it on your hips, pretty much you can wear it however you would like haha but i am loving the ruffled high waist look! AHHH and this purse, I mean are you dying!! It's perfect right!? It's that citrus color that is so in for spring and exactly what I have wanted! It makes a simple outfit like this pop just because of a purse, and it looks great with a bright red lip, I would say it's the perfect purse for me! Oh and make sure you scroll down for an amazing giveaway! It involves one of my favorite pieces of jewelry!

Brighten Things Up


I wanted to brighten things up a little today and shock you all with some color!  This skirt is simply amazing and has a perfect combination of bold colors, the second I saw it I knew I had to have it! It is that perfect little skirt that you could wear to the park with some flats, to church with a classic button up or even on a saucy date night like !  As many of you know i am slightly obsessed with a good red lip and it goes perfect with this skirt. Anyways I hope you like it and I want to hear other pieces that are must haves for you right now!?
