Flamingos And Pink For Summer

Hi lovelies, I hope you all had a great week. I’ve definitely had a busy week so I’ve been a little MIA from Instagram and social media this week. Sometimes that’s nice though right? I think we all need a little break every now and then. Whatever you did this week I hope you enjoyed your week. I’m shooting with another new photographer this weekend and I can’t wait. I’m slowly but surely figuring out what I like and don’t like but I’m loving getting to meet new photographers and see new places in Dallas.

Okay, so moving on to this look. I’m sure you’re well aware that kimonos are really in this season, so I jumped on board and loved how fun and easy they are to wear. I ended up going with a shorter one opposed to a long one, but I can’t wait to find a long one I love as well. Kimonos come in all different forms, long sleeves, short sleeves, long lengths, or short. I found this one for under $30, and love the pattern. The pink and white is so fun for Summer and would look adorable with some jean shorts or even some white jeans for a night out. I sized down in this one because I didn’t want it to look huge. I typically wear a medium in things like this and sized down to a small, but it all depends on the fit and look you’re going for.

I got this Flamingo print bag in the mail a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t sure what I was going to pair it with, but when I got the kimono I knew they would look so cute together. If you’ve never heard of SheIn (the place where I got this bag) you have to check it out. It is all from China so shipping can be slower, but if you have a little patience you can really get some good deals. I would say if you’re shopping for clothes there to size up because everything typically runs small. Also, I’ll be honest, sometimes I order ten things and they all work out, sometimes only half work, and sometimes I throw items away. You just kind of have to weed through the site and find the gems! But I do love their site for low priced items.

I can’t wait to take this cute little bag and this kimono to the beach this summer. They are both perfect accessories for a beach trip or a pool day. Also, speaking of pools- I’m officially on operation “get it right, get it tight” for bikini season. Anyone else feel like Summer just crept up on us? So not fair! Anyway, enough about me freaking out that I have to be in a bikini in a month and a half, I hope you all love this look and I will link everything below for you to shop. Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Also I wanted to thank Mane Salon Dallas and my awesome hair stylist for doing my hair for this shoot! Shandy is amazing and always listens to exactly what I want for my hair. I linked their website above! If you’re in need of a good stylist, check them out. My husband and I both see her and love their salon.

Shorts for Spring

Hi friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. We’re currently in a transition time in our life and things have been kind of stressful, but that’s life sometimes right? I hope you all had a restful weekend are feeling ready for a new week.

I have a fun post coming up on Wednesday about how to style your wedding party, and I’m sharing some really fun photos, so be sure to check that out. But today I want to share this adorable outfit I wore last week. I was sent these adorable shorts as well as this cute off the shoulder top from two amazing boutiques! They were so kind to gift me with these, and I couldn’t wait to share them with you all. There will be a special discount code at the bottom in case you want to do some shopping of your own!

So let’s talk about the shirt first, it’s no secret I’m obsessed with off the shoulder tops lately. I hope you’re not all sick of them because I just can’t stop buying them! They are SO cute for Spring and Summer and there’s a ton of adorable patterns out right now too. This navy OTS (off the shoulder) top was sent to me by Shop Buddy Love. If you love bright colors, fun patterns, and a huge variety- this is the place for you! There are so many things I want from their website, but I’m holding myself back! This top is so comfortable and would be adorable paired with some white skinny jeans, or some cut off shorts. I’m still in search of the perfect pair (but when I find them you’ll be the first to know.) I love the ruffles on this top as well as the flowy sleeves. It actually has straps that you can wear on the shoulder as well, but I chose to tuck them in and wear it this way, SHOCKER.

Moving on to these fun fringe shorts! Another big trend right now is fringe- fringe denim, fringe tops, fringe shorts, anything with fringe is so fun! I just said that so many times in my head it started to not sound like a word anymore. Ooops, does that happen to anyone else? I got these shorts in the mail from a boutique in Indiana called Raelynn’s Boutique. Not only are these shorts amazingly comfortable, they are also under $30, which is such a great deal. They have a small amount of distressed fringe on the bottom and the blue and white stripes just seal the deal. I’m all about stripes this season, so I was so excited to style these when I got them in the mail. I would say to size up in these if you want a looser fit, or if you prefer a little more fitted than they run true to size.

I paired the adorable top and fringe shorts with a pair of wedges that might be even more comfortable than my Marc Fisher wedges from this post! Okay, they are both extremely comfortable just totally different shoes. I was gifted these shoes and I will definitely be purchasing another pair from this company with my own money now. I don’t just share items with you all so you’ll buy them, I honestly want you to find things you love! So if I’m sent something that I really don’t care for, I won’t post about it! The shoes have the most adorable beaded detail, and I love how the heel is super chunky. They would be perfect for a date night or even for a day out and about running errands (they are that comfortable.) Unfortunately they are sold out, but the brand is Shop Sugar Brand Shoes if you want to see their other items!

I hope you all enjoy this adorable outfit, also how fun is the pink background? I’m loving bright colors lately! Definitely trying to branch out for Spring and Summer and add a little more color to my wardrobe. I’ll link everything at the bottom of my post per usual. Have a lovely day friends!

The discount code for Raelynn’s Boutique is “taylor15” for 15% off any of the boutique items.

Spring Colors and Puppies, What’s Better Than That?

Hi, Hi friends! We made it to Friday! Insert dancing emoji here, I’m definitely doing a happy dance. I am so excited to introduce you to one of our dogs this week, and show you this adorable Spring look we shot. I’m a total dog obsessed mom. I have birthday parties for my dogs, get them extravagant birthday cakes, and literally treat them like they are my children. I can’t imagine how I’ll be one day when we have kids. I’m not ashamed to say my kids will probably be embarrassed of how embarrassing I am! Oh well!

Now on to this adorable Spring inspired look. My two favorite seasons are Spring and Fall, I love how the colors begin to transition in each season. When Spring rolls around we get to start bringing out the pastels and the gingham, which I’m loving right now. To me Spring colors and Summer colors are similar, so then when Fall comes around and it’s acceptable to start bringing out the deep and dark shades, I get all kinds of excited again! Anyone else have a favorite season, or two? Okay, onto the details. I ordered this top from a local Ft. Worth boutique a couple of months ago and was nervous because I hadn’t tried it on.

I had seen it on their Instagram and loved the pastel yellow and gingham pattern. The easiest way to order from them is to follow them on Instagram and then call in and order on the phone! They are great about getting packages out in a timely fashion, and they have the cutest things. If you’re local I highly recommend taking a trip to go and check out their cute boutique. I added some adorable teal tassel earrings for some added color.

I picked these up at Target a couple weeks ago and will link them here and at the bottom! They were under $10 and super light weight! Of course I’m wearing THE wedge for Spring. My Marc Fisher Adalyn Espadrilles! I said it once and I’ll say it all Spring and Summer, these shoes are WORTH IT. Every time I wear them I love them more, and I get a ton of compliments every time I go out in them!

I will link them here, as well as the less expensive Steve Madden dupe here!  This beach bag is one I got a few years ago from Target so I will link some of my current favorites and ones I’m thinking about purchasing at the bottom of this post.

Now, onto the real star of the show! This is Fletcher and he is a Goldendoodle, he’s three years old, a big teddy bear, and loves everyone he meets. I mean just look at that face, how could you not be obsessed? Excuse his messy hair, he’s still getting the hang of the whole modeling thing! We have another doodle as well, but he could care less to sit in front of a camera haha! So if you want to see him, he’s always on my Instagram stories. Fletcher is wearing a seer sucker bow tie and I will link it here! I’m all about cute Spring accessories for my fur babies, so I’ll put all of our favorites at the bottom of the post. Anyone else love to buy the cutest little things for their fur babies?

As always, all my outfit details, or similar items will be at the bottom of the post! I hope you enjoyed getting to meet a member of my cute little family. Oh, and please excuse our messy hair don’t care, Fletcher was ready for the treat we promised him by this point, but I still wanted to share some of the photos even though our hair is not cooperating haha! Enjoy the rest of your day! So thankful for everyone who is following along on my new and exciting journey.
