Favorite Travel Items.

Harem Pants: Agnes and Dora// Sunnies: Firmoo

Well, today we head to California for a little wedding reception. I am excited to see family and friends again! But, I am really excited to head back home to Utah after and stay put for a little bit. It's exciting to be able to start real life together and get our house all decorated and settle in. It's the simplest things in life that make me the happiest! Like having a husband to come home to and cook dinner for, date nights in watching movies and having snacks, and never saying goodbye at night. I am excited and ready for real life with this guy I get to call my husband!

For now though, more travelling! So speaking of simple yet great things, these pants. I LOVE these pants for traveling! They are comfortable and light and perfect for traveling from a cooler climate to hot or visa versa because they keep you covered up but they are light and airy. Basically, these are your dream pants! I also cannot wait to carry them in to my fall wardrobe. But for now I am pairing them with flip flops and a light tee and some sunnies because California calls for sunnies of course!

I hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you back in the real world on TUESDAY! Thank goodness for long weekends to keep you in la la land for an extra day!

Hawaii Night Out Look

tank: Swell// shorts: Swell// hat: borrowed from the best

I loved taking this look with me to Kauai for a night out with my man. It's dressy without being too dressy. I still wanted that relaxed island vibe but I wanted to feel pretty. These shorts and comfy light tank top did just that! I threw on a sweater to feel cozy in the night air and a lovely hat covers up any beach blown hair from the days activities. 

I wore this outfit to go for sushi and it was the first day I actually put on nice clothes and did my hair and makeup. I LOVE not having to get ready every day while I'm in Hawaii because my skin and hair feel so amazing and I feel beautiful with fresh skin and air dried hair. But, after a few days it is always feels nice to get ready ready and have your man say dang you look beautiful! haha. 

So if your style is laid back, easy breezy but put together like I feel mine is, make sure you check out SWELL. I promise you will be able to fill your closet with their options, or at least grab a few items for your next vacation!

Honeymoon Vacation Week

outfit: Aeropostale// hat: H&M

Summer is on it's way out. Yet, I still have the beach on my mind. Probably because my skin is still pink from that Hawaiian sunshine. So this week I will be sharing with you my Hawaiian honeymoon outfits! These outfits will also be a good way to transition while the days are still warm but the nights start to cool down. 

During the day it's still hot hot hot. Especially if you are on vacation somewhere extra warm! But the nights can get a bit chilly and if you are out watching the sunset or having a fire, you want something to cover up those arms. What could be more perfect than a chambray? The answer is nothing. Chambray shirts are so versatile and perfect for layering. I'll admit I own quite a few and every time I see one I convince myself I need just one more. At least they all get put to good use! 

I absolutely love this weather where you start to layer up but you are never cold! Plus these thunder storms you guys. I LOVE them!!! 

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you had a great great weekend!

Bridal Shower Look

Dress: similar// Necklace: Mindy Maes Market// Shoes: Care of Ariel

This is it! This week is Wedding week! Saturday is the big day and I honestly cannot believe it. But before Saturday there is a lot to get done and a lot of celebrating to be done! Including an amazing bridal shower. I cannot wait for this bridal shower. A couple of my closest friends are planning it and I know it is going to be so fun! With a theme like Lauren's Whimsical Bridal Shower how could it not! I just excited to see all of girl friends here and spend time with them before the big day. I'm extra excited that my sister will get to be here for it also! It's going to be such a good week!

Now for the outfit. I was basically told what I needed to wear by my lovely friend Gentri haha. I love her for being the planner in this friendship because she can definitely confirm that it is not me! I saw this dress and fell in love with it. It's off white and has such a beautiful lace detail. Plus the price tag made me smile! It's simple enough that I knew I would be able to dress it up with some jewels and when I saw this pink crystal dot necklace I knew it was the one to top off this outfit! 

So I'm off to get a whoooole lotta last minute wedding things done. And also make about a million and one trips to the airport! Ah! I am beyond excited!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

10 Dorm Room Essentials + Kleenex

*A big thanks to Kleenex for sponsoring this post! All my opinions and views on these products are my own! #Kleenexstyle

Well, I've been a little MIA from the blog world. A main thanks to trying to get our new home all put together and looking/feeling like home. While I've been doing this I have been thinking about my very first home away from home. My first time away from home and my very first place to decorate myself! Now, I'm not super proud of how I decorated, as my style has changed quite a bit! Looking at the options now that I would have chosen I get so excited for decorating and making our new home ours. Walmart has so many great options for your fresh new collage students, and also for us who wish we could go back and do it all again! So here are my top ten picks for your dorm room must haves!

1.  Comfortable and stylish bedding - you want to want to go to bed. Trust me by the end of the day I ALWAYS look forward to crawling in to my comfortable and cute bed.
2. Decorative board - I love these boards you can hang up! You can stick pictures, notes, reminders, quotes, anything you want in them!
3. Bed linens - As important as the comforter you place on top of your bed. These need to be cozy and stylish as well! Matching your rooms theme.
4. Extra shelving - A place to put your books, socks, hair essentials, really anything that needs to be organized and out of the way but still with easy access.
5. Storage boxes - That aren't eye sores. These make for great places to keep anything that needs keeping. Yet, you don't have to place it out of sight because you can choose whatever colour you need to match your room.
6. Mini Fridge - a bonus to this fridge is you can write your grocery list right on it as a reminder! Plus it just keeps your favourite must have snacks close to you.
7. Tide Pods - I wish I had these while in collage. I LOVE these! It keeps things organized as you have your detergent and softener all in one small pod. No more bulky bottles all over.
8. MORE storage - I am all about organization and having things put away so your room looks nice and tidy.
9. Closet doubler - hang this in your closet and you have more space to hang more things. What girl doesn't need that?
10. Tissues- Kleenex Expressions Oval Tissue keeping these adorable boxes close to your bed or anywhere in your home makes for easy access when you need them. Spills, tears, smudged makeup, or that ever so terrifying spider crawling on your wall…

Kleenex has done it again! Making everyday life more stylish with their Expressions Oval Tissue line. I love that the colours match my rooms theme and I know you can find one that matches yours! These make those everyday sneezes and tears and spills an easy clean up.  These specific oval chevron designs are only available for a limited time at your nearest Walmart so hurry over and stock up!

All the looks above can be found at Walmart along with all your other dorm room needs! Make sure you grab Kleenex to add to your stylish room though because everyone will be asking where you got yours as they hide their boring tissues away in a closet!

Find your nearest Walmart  and snag these while you still can! And good luck styling your rooms!
