The Cutest Romper For Summer

Happy Friday friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day, and are getting ready for a great weekend. I have a super busy one ahead, two shoots, “to do” lists, and lots of errands. I wanted to share this super fun romper with you all because I’m all about rompers right now. I think they might be my favorite thing to buy. Throw in some ruffles and stripes and I’m sold. What trends are you loving right now?

Alright, I saw this romper on a fellow blogger and she looked adorable! The romper was not able to be linked but thankfully she shared where she had purchased it. It’s from an online boutique called The Pink Lily Boutique. They have a super big variety of dresses, rompers, accessories, etc. I like this boutique because their items really fit true to size. It’s always a struggle for me to shop online because I go back and forth with loving how many more options there are, to whether or not it’s going to fit. So, when I find a good online website or shop, I want to share the wealth!

Okay, okay back on track. I love how this romper has ruffles on the sleeves, and on the shorts. It is long sleeve but still able to be worn in the heat. It is a really light weigh fabric and is perfect for a Summer night. I paired it with my new favorite Marc Fisher wedges. I know you’ve seen these in the tan color, BUT how fun are these patterned wedges? I had to have them when I saw them. I’m a sucker for a good shoe!

I wore a lace bralette underneath the romper for a little added touch. I paired a super fun sun hat with the outfit which would be perfect for a beach or resort look! I’m not quite brave enough to wear these super fun sun hats around Dallas yet, but you can bet I’ll be wearing them all Summer at the pool or the beach. Plus, if you live somewhere tropical you could totally pull that look off, Dallas isn’t really the city to walk around in a big sun hat unfortunately. But, it is one of my favorite Summer accessories. The one in this post is from a company that reached out to me called ilymix, I have linked them here. If you want to purchase anything from their website you can use my discount code “Taylor_20” for a 20% off discount code on any item on their site. The exact hat from my post is here!

If you have any questions about how this romper fits, or just want to ask a general question you can leave a comment or send me an email! If you purchase this romper tag me and let me know, I would love to see how you style it. I will link the exact romper here! It is sold out in size small, but is still available in a medium and a large. So hurry and snag it before it runs out. Also, my exact shoes can’t be linked in red, they are linked in blue. But if you want to shop the red ones here they are!

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.

A Pop Of Pink

It’s Friday and I could not be more ready for the weekend. As I mentioned in my blog post on Monday, we have a lot going on in our lives right now so we’re worn out as of late. Between working full time jobs, keeping up with the blog, our dogs, and Cameron’s Football Kicking company, life has been crazy. I’m definitely hoping it will slow down soon, because we need a break. Maybe some of you are in this stage too, life seems to NEVER stop, and you just feel exhausted! If that’s you, I just wanted to let you know you’re not alone. I think so many times we feel as if we’re the only person who has ever gone through “this exact thing” whatever that may be, and that’s not the case. There is always someone out there going through the same things, so be kind to people and love people because you never know who needs it. I’ve found that even when I’m struggling or stressed, it helps me when I care about others needs and feelings. I just wanted to share those little thoughts with you all, in hopes that it will help someone or that someone else can relate! Now moving on to this fun little number. The only thing that would make this outfit better is if someone could figure out how to transport me to the beach instead of in front of a brick wall! Other than that, this outfit is SO great.

I was a little hesitant about the color of this dress because I typically tend to stick to pretty neutral colors. I will say this is probably one of the brightest pieces in my closet right now, but I’m really trying to step out of my comfort zone and spice things up a bit for Spring and Summer. Does anyone else feel like they need a whole new wardrobe change when a new season starts? I definitely do! I started cleaning out my closet this week and it feels so good to get rid of stuff and downsize a bit.

Okay, on to the details. Unfortunately this dress already sold out. I just bought it last week, and today when I went to link it for you all it was already sold out. I will keep an eye out for it in case it becomes available again, but don’t worry, I will link some similar colors and styles for you at the bottom. What I love about dresses like this one is how comfortable and easy they are. This dress is adorable and so stylish but not uncomfortable to be in. I love a good dress like that! It’s flowy and loose but still flattering at the same time. I love the length as well, the midi dress length is definitely a big trend right now and I totally understand why.

You can still show off a little leg without worrying if you’re going to flash someone when you stand up from the table at dinner. If you ask me that’s definitely a reason to invest in some good midi dresses. I paired this hot pink number with some black studded block heels that are such a good price you can’t pass them up. Not only are these under $40, they are also the perfect height. I am trying to invest in shoes that I can wear with shorts, dresses, pants, etc. I’m really not big on super high heels primarily because I cannot walk in them without killing my feet. At the same time though I love to wear heels, so it’s all about finding the right style and height for you. If you’re like me and not wanting to kill your feet but still add a little extra height, these are definitely for you! I will link them at the bottom for you as usual.

I added a little fedora because, why not right? I’m really into hats right now which is so odd because a year ago I never accessorized with hats. I’m not sure if my style is just changing a bit, or if this pom pom fedora was just too cute to pass up. I actually have a special discount code for my readers at the bottom of the post. You can use it to purchase this fun Fedora or something else from their website. The website cannot be linked via LIKEtoKNOWit so I will link it right here for you to shop if you want to stock up on some cute hats as well.

The code to shop on their website is “Taylor_20” and will take 20% off your order at checkout, so if you purchase from them be sure to use that code for a good little discount. I hope you all enjoy this look as much as me, as I mentioned above I’m trying to add a little more color to my posts lately. However, if you have a certain look or style you would like to see, please let me know! I would love to do a post on something that YOU request, so feel free to send those my way!

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.

Vacation Vibes

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are now ready to take on a new week! I shared a post Friday called 6 Things I’ve Learned in 6 Months of Marriage. You can read that hereĀ if you missed it. If you already read it, I hope you loved it and got a little encouragement from it. I love sharing fashion, skincare, and all the fun stuff with you all, but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up a bit. This Wednesday is also the start of my Wedding Wednesday series where I’ll be sharing all about our wedding and different aspects of how I planned and styled it, so be sure to check the blog on Wednesday morning for the first post in that series!

Now, let’s jump back on the fashion train because this dress is just too good not to share! I cannot link it via liketoKNOWit, so I will link it at the end of the post for you! If you haven’t noticed, there is now a new way to shop my looks. It’s easier than ever and once you sign up it is so simple. All you have to do is go to the App store and download the liketoKNOWit app. It is free and available now! Once you download the app, simply create an account, and then you’re done! Any of my photos that have a liketoKNOWit link, or the small icon in the corner are shoppable through liketoKNOWit. All you have to do is screenshot that photo, and it will show up in your app with all my outfit details. If you prefer to have emails sent and not use the app, you can still like my photos via Instagram and the details will be sent to your email that is on file! It is now so simple and easy to shop my looks! I’ll be doing a full, in depth post soon just to show you how it’s done, so stay tuned for that!

Alright, now onto the fun part! THIS DRESS! I got this in the mail last week and couldn’t wait to wear it. It is so light and breezy and is the perfect length. If you’re not into maxi dresses but also want something a little longer, this midi dress is for you. It comes down to mid calf and shows just the right amount of leg! The colors and the pattern are seriously perfect for a Summer vacation, or just a Summer day trip to the pool. I will definitely be wearing this as a coverup all Summer. I love that it is light and airy, but is not see through at all. Also, did I mention that it’s under $40? How amazing is that! I will link it here in case you want to shop this exact dress, but I’ve also linked some of my other favorites at the bottom!

I paired it with some fun straw heels from Target that are seriously so comfortable, and the price is amazing as well! I plan to wear it with a cute little fedora and a beach bag at the beach this Summer, but you could easily wear this dress all throughout Spring and Summer, vacation or not. I normally don’t buy items with super bright colors, I typically gravitate towards darker shades! But, I’m trying to switch it up a bit for Summer. Anyone else love their all black looks? But Summer is all about the fun patterns and colors, and this dress has both of those!

Feel free to email me or leave a comment with any questions regarding sizing, or if you just want to stop by for some girl talk! I’m fine with that too! Enjoy your day and don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for my first Wedding Wednesday post.
