My Style: Festival Season


Happy Friday! Sharing a few snaps I put together for a post over on Glitter Guide in collaboration with Old Navy - I styled 3 looks for festival season but this one was my favorite. I've been wanting a light weight cargo jacket for a while and have been waring this one non-stop since I picked it up. Perfect for this fickle spring weather we've been having!

Travels: NYC With Elle Decor & Nate Berkus


I got back from my quick trip to NYC last night and enjoyed a lovely dinner at my parents before coming home. I was up in the city for a shoot for Elle Decor.com and Nate Berkus and just wanted to share these fun snaps from Instagram. Nate's exactly how you'd imagine him to be in real life -- friendly, funny and lights up the room. I was so nervous about this incredible opportunity but had such a great time! I can't wait to share (and see!!!) the images from the shoot that will be out next month. I'm wearing a dress from Troubadour Clothing -- more on that next week!

My Style: Keep It Simple

Forever21 blazer (old), J.Crew Factory shorts, Zara heels, Fossil bag (gifted), Candy Shop Vintage necklace (gifted). 

Just sharing a quick post with my favorite spring combo while I'm en route to NYC in the pouring rain! Nothing beats the combination of denim shorts, a super soft tee + structured blazer in my book. A delicate layering necklace like this one from Candy Shop Vintage and heels really dresses it up.

In The Kitchen: Cherry Melon Smoothie

Joe Fresh sweater, Old Navy jeans, Loren Hope bracelets, BaubleBar necklace (all gifted). 

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was a little more relaxing than mine! I've been running around like crazy getting ready for shoots, getting up before the sun to shoot and am so looking forward to this coming Friday when I can sleep in and relax!! I love to be busy but sometimes I let my diet and exercise slack off when things get stressful.  For my latest post on Style Me Pretty I collaborated with Carlene from Healthfully Ever After to share a clean eating meal plan for brides to be. Carlene had so many helpful tips for me -- and over the next week I'll be sharing all of her recipes. Her biggest suggestion was prepping ahead for meals - on Sunday night so you don't have any excuses for making poor food choices during the week. I've been starting my mornings with the same green smoothie for over a year now -- but this delicious blend of cherries + canteloupe is such a refreshing change and it's so quick to make! Read on for more photos by Abby Jiu + the reicpe from Carlene!

My Style: The Spring Midi Skirt

Bel & Beau skirt (gifted), Old Navy tee, Zara sandals. 

It's finally time for Spring outfits around here! Last weekend I swapped out my winter wardrobe, donated + consigned a bunch of stuff and can't wait to wear lighter, brighter clothes in the coming months. This skirt from Bel + Beau  was first on my list of clothes to wear. I love myself a midi-skirt! Shop a few more of my faves below + keep reading for more pictures.
