I love neutral colors such as white, black, tan, and grey because of their ability to be mixed and matched so easily. When I’m wearing neutrals in the winter, I stick more to darker tones such as black and dark grey. Once spring rolls around, I start leaning towards light grey, tan, and white. This spring, I received a great new addition to my wardrobe: a Jord watch! Jord makes hand-crafted wood watches. They invited me to join their influencer program and I gladly accepted… Read more »

I wanted to share the outfit I wore on Valentine’s Day because I’m wearing PINK. And that doesn’t happen very often. I tend to gravitate towards wearing lots of grey, black, blue, or white. But lately I’ve found myself liking pink more and I’ve been making a point to add more colors into my wardrobe. I love the blush shade of this top along with it’s gold accents and I know I’ll be wearing it many more times to come. I also wanted to share the great deal… Read more »

As we move into August, I’m happy about the fact that here in Colorado we have a good two months where I can still wear summer clothes. Is it just me, or have the summer clothing trends this year been extra cute? There were so many styles that I saw on Instagram (and a few that I bought for myself) that I thought were extra unique and fun this year. Here are just a few of my favorite summer 2016 looks. 1. Off-shoulder tops… Read more »

Last June, John and I took a fun weekend trip to Montrose/Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, which is in southwest Colorado. We spent the first night walking around downtown Montrose and then the next day exploring the Black Canyon (which was extremely intense-I’m planning on putting together a post on that soon). Downtown Montrose is a quaint city with a population of around 19,000 people. It serves as a gateway for fun tourist attractions like the Black Canyon of the Gunnison… Read more »

I think I’m going to start doing these “5 things on Friday” posts. The main reason is because I normally have so many quick ideas and updates that I want to post, so this gives me a way to share multiple things at once. I’m also a huge fan of lists. Especially handwritten ones. But since blogging is not very conducive to handwritten lists (with the whole digital thing and all), I think this is the next best thing! So,… Read more »

I’ve never been a gaudy jewelry person. Most of the necklaces I own are small lockets. When the statement necklace trend first started appearing, I originally wasn’t a huge fan. They were just so different from what I normally wore that I didn’t think I would ever get into it. However, one did catch my eye when I was shopping at Forever 21 (the necklace that I’m wearing in the photos). I liked it because it’s relatively small for a… Read more »
