Nothing screams summer more than celebrating the 4TH OF JULY! When I look back, I realize I never use to be that excited about the upcoming holiday. Sure, I’d attend a BBQ here and there, watch fireworks and parades and always wear a cute festive t-shirt. But I now believe no other day defines summer quite like the 4th of July! So bring on the red, white and blue because I’m ready to celebrate! I’ve linked all the best finds for Americana apparel including this lightweight sweatshirt and the cutest home decor pieces from some of my favorite retailers. Come along and go shopping with me!

I’ve been going to the same Ugly Christmas Sweater Party for almost a decade now! You could say it’s a Christmas Tradition. I’ve worn lots of ugly sweaters in the past 10 years, lucky for you I couldn’t find any photos to share with you. The funny thing is, these days Ugly Christmas sweaters aren’t so “ugly” anymore. Some of them are actually pretty cute! For those needing help finding a funny and inexpensive ugly Christmas sweater, look no further! Or if you just want a good laugh at some of those sweaters, this one’s for you too. {Shop by clicking on the item from the above image or the links below.} // Festive AF // Flying Unicorn // Deer Hoodie // Fa La La Llama // // Sleigh My Name // Dress // Single & Ready To Mingle // // Bye Felicia // Santa Poncho // Filthy Muggle // […]

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only days away? I feel so behind on all things holiday, which is odd because I got the Christmas decorations out this past weekend. We even hung lights outside and lined the walkway up to the front door with giant candy canes. The outdoor decorations already look very inviting. To the outsider, I have it all together and am ready for the holidays. Full disclosure and full transparency, there’s boxes all over the house! Clearly I’m not Instagram ready! I’m starting my Gift Guide series with the cozy cutie in your life! These are all great gifts for your girlfriends, your mom, your sister, your hair stylist or even for yourself! I’ve rounded up my favorite options for that girl in your life who wants to stay in and keep cozy! The purpose of this blog is to help you check everyone off your list, […]

Just because it is September 1st does not mean that summer is over! I’m not saying that I’m not super excited for all things fall – pumpkin spice lattes, chunky sweaters and fall scented candles, but I just can’t believe that summer will soon be coming to an end. I’ve rounded up my favorite Amazon purchases that I made this summer. These are pieces that I’ve worn over and over again. Pieces that I will wear all the way until the warm weather ends. Since I’m in the Midwest that could be October! We never know. 1. Sunflower Midi Dress – My #1 favorite Amazon purchase this summer is this sunflower dress. I can’t tell you how many times I wore this dress this summer. It’s comfy, it’s flattering, and it’s the perfect midi length. I also think it offers a good amount of support to go bra-less. It’s such a great […]

I don’t normally talk about my birthday this much, but I thought why not. It’s a great opportunity to share my life with you. Yesterday was my 33rd birthday, so today I’m sharing 33 things I learned over the past year. (33 thing I’ve learned this year in no particular order.) 1. 33 is not old, neither is 50 2. Everyday is a day worth celebrating 3. Moisturize everyday 4. Under eye cream is a lifesaver 5. You can never get enough sleep 6. Dress size doesn’t matter as long as I feel comfortable 7.
