Shop my looks with Liketoknow.it

Romper: Charming Charlie | Phone Case: Skinit | Laptop Skin: Skinit (discount code below)

It’s been awhile since I have done a post like this and since there are so many new faces around here lately, I thought I’d reintroduce Liketoknow.it for those of you who are thinking to yourself “like to what”?? Liketoknow.it is a popular service that allows you to shop any of my Instagram outfits. Once you are signed up, you are all set to get outfit details from not only me, but any other blogger or influencer that uses this service as well. While my blog houses tons of outfits, Instagram is where I usually share things first. A lot of times items will sell out before I am able to get them on the blog so I try to at least get it on Instagram before that can happen. Plus, Instagram is where I share my daily outfits so you can get a better idea of my “normal attire”. So if you haven’t already heard the hype about this service, I’m telling y’all it really is the best thing since sliced bread 🙂 Prepare your wallets though!

HOW TO SHOP MY LOOKS WITH LIKETOKNOW.IT

  1. Sign up here. Don’t worry, all you have to give is your Instagram handle and email! Easy peazy!
  2. Download the Liketoknow.it app from the app store.
  3. Go to my Instagram and simply like or screenshot any picture that you want outfit details for.
  4. Open up your Liketoknow.it app where you will see every picture that you have ever liked/screenshotted all in ONE place! If you click into each picture, it will list out all of the outfit details. At this point you can click on the item you are interested in and purchase directly from there!

For those of you that do not have an Instagram or do not wish to use Liketoknow.it, I now also have a “Shop my Instagram” page directly on the blog. This allows you to shop any of my Instagram pictures without being signed up for Liketoknow.it. I list all of the outfit details for you and make it super easy to shop all of the items from your computer or phone! Even if you aren’t wanting to spend money on new clothes, this page is great to go to when you are needing outfit inspiration for your own closet. Remember that I am always one message away if you need help with outfit ideas or have any questions about sizing (or anything else!).

Laptop skin and phone case are both from Skinit. Use code CHIC20 to get 20% off of your order!

4th of July

We are a little over a week away from the 4th of July and all of the festivities that come along with it! If you aren’t decked out in red, white and blue, then you are not celebrating correctly my friends 🙂 I love stocking up on festive, American attire for several reasons. Besides the fact that it proves you are patriotic AF, there are so many holidays and occasions that warrant wearing your favorite American colors. Let’s not forget that being from Texas means these colors are pretty much an everyday staple. If you are still looking for the perfect festive attire, check out some of my favorites below! Simply click on any of the images to shop the item!

Taking A Step Back + Nordstrom Giveaway

Top: LOFT (on sale) | Shorts: Nordstrom | Sneakers: Johnston & Murphy | Earrings: Similar

Hi Friends! I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but I have taken a step back from the blog these past couple of months for multiple reasons. Some of those I am not able to share right now but others I will certainly let you in on. I am a big proponent of “quality over quantity” meaning that I don’t want to just get on here to write a post if my heart is not in it. I used to think that just getting a post up whether it was read-worthy was what it took to make it in the blogging world. Well I’ve come to learn that posting halfass blog posts doesn’t do either one of us any good. You don’t want to read something that has no point to it and I certainly don’t enjoy writing them! It’s a lose-lose.

These past few months have not been what I expected recovery to be. Not because recovery has been bad, in fact it has been really good! I am pretty much back to a completely normal lifestyle! I have started physical therapy and am currently going 3 times a week. Life is busier than ever with friends, family, events and just life. But then why is it that I feel so drained all of the time? I wake up already dreaming about what time I will be able to make it into bed that night. Usually my heart sinks a little when I realize that it will be another late night with little sleep. That is no way to start the day dreading how much you have to do. It’s discouraging to say the least.

I couldn’t even tell y’all the last time that I cleaned my house. There are still suitcases lying around my room from recent trips because I just haven’t had the time or energy to unpack them. Laundry hasn’t been done in months. There are still Easter decorations up. When I do have the time for these things, all I want to do is relax. Yet I can’t even seem to unplug and relax anymore without the worry and guilt of things that I should be doing. It’s a viscous cycle that I want out of!

My cup is empty. What do I mean by that? I have finally realized that I am pouring into so much that is not fulfilling me. All of these things that I am spending my time on should not have to feel like work. Friends, events, blogging, dinner dates, whatever it may be. I am so used to keeping a busy schedule that lately I couldn’t figure out why my busy schedule was not keeping me entertained. In fact why it was doing the exact opposite. So that’s why I have taken a step back to try to get things back in order. To try and figure out what it is that motivates me. To unplug and enjoy being present. To appreciate the little things. To come home to a clean house. And above all to be happy with where I am spending my time.

So many of us fill our schedules thinking that that is the way to success. Well hey if that is working for you then you just keep on keeping on! But if you are pouring into a lot of things that are not fulfilling you, you will eventually crash and burn. Instead of trying to pack “you” time into your already packed schedule (because so many people will suggest this), it might be necessary to take a step back altogether and reevaluate. There are very few things that we can give away and never get back, but time is one of those so choose how you spend it wisely!

I’ll get off of my soapbox now 🙂 With all of that being said, I wanted to let y’all know that I will still be around. I am just taking some time for me and still trying to blog in the process because it really is such a healing tool when I do finally get behind the keyboard. It’s the getting there that is the hard part! That being said, although I am a fashion blogger, recovery has taught me that I love writing about personal topics. Dating, real life, the messy parts, that’s what I have loved writing about recently and you guys seem to be loving it too! So you can expect to be seeing more of that!

Now onto the good stuff, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is just a little over a month away. This sale is HUGE guys. I’m talking full price items, even designer ones, on major sale. So much stuff flew off the shelves in the first couple of hours last year so you definitely have to be on your game! To get you ready for the big sale, I have teamed up with some other bloggers to gift one lucky reader a $1,000 Nordstrom gift card. See below to enter.

Graphic Tees

CLICK AN IMAGE TO SHOP THE ITEM DIRECTLY,
OR USE THE LINKS BELOW!

I have had a major crush on graphic tees as of recently. Pretty much anything that has to do with wine is most likely already in my closet or is sitting in an online shopping cart somewhere. The latter is a habit I’m trying to break because after a couple of glasses of wine, those online shopping carts tend to empty themselves…

Speaking of wine, I have some exciting news concerning this topic that you will most certainly want to be following me on Instagram for. Let’s just say it’s going to be a wine-filled week! For all of my Houston people, Wine and Food Week kicks off Monday June 5th and runs through the 11th. If you are looking for a good time, make sure to check this out. You can purchase tickets here.

Love this trend but don’t want to splurge? Target has a GREAT selection and they are always under $15! Here are some more options at different price points.

Graphic tees for all budgets
