Summer is upon us and one of the biggest trends this season is bold floral prints.  From florals to leaf prints, you will see this trend every where.  The prints are colorful, eye catching, and fun to wear.  As many of you have noticed, I love a beautiful floral print and tend to gravitate towards all things floral during the summer months.

Not only will you see this trend in clothing but you will also see this trend with jewelry.  From dainty floral earrings, necklaces, and rings to bold statement makers, floral accessories are trending and here to stay.

JTV.com has a gorgeous selection of floral inspired jewelry pieces...you are sure to find that perfect accessory to complete your gorgeous floral dress or top!  I personally adore this dainty floral leaf ring...the wrap around style and dainty detail on the leafs makes this ring one of a kind!  I love wearing this ring every day on my right hand and have received so many compliments on it as well.  It truly is just so gorgeous and it sparkles even more in person!

I've also created a collage of some of my other favorite JTV.com floral inspired pieces!  What I love most about JTV.com is that they have a broad selection of gorgeous pieces that fit just about every style.  Not to mention, their pieces are so affordable!  Which piece is your favorite?!  Check out the blog shop HERE.

Are you loving the floral jewelry trend as much as I am this season?!

Ruffle Floral Summer Dress with Nordstrom

*Today's post was sponsored by Nordstrom...all opinions are my own.

Does this dress grab your attention?  It certainly grabbed mine!  The fun colorful floral print on the black backdrop makes this dress such a stand out.  The off the shoulder style is perfect for these warm summer months and the lace trimmed ruffles adds such a girly feminine touch to this gorgeous dress.

I can't help but be drawn to bright colors and of course as you know, I'm always drawn to a beautiful floral print.  Adding a pop of yellow with these adorable heels seemed like a no brainer and this clutch...oh my THIS CLUTCH.  It was love at first sight.  The stripe pattern and the rainbow of poms across the front of this envelope style clutch is just so summery and fun.  And how fun are the little mirrored pom tassels that hang down from the side too?!  This bag is surprisingly roomy and I love that it can be dressed up and dressed down.  

I must mention that this dress is currently 40% off?!  It really is such a steal and will be a dress that you can wear year to year.  It's one of those that will not go out of style and that you will find yourself gravitating towards for a variety of occasions and just for every day wear too.

Many of my summer dresses have come from Nordstrom this season.  They have such a broad selection of gorgeous styles that are at a variety of price points too.  If you missed my first post on summer dresses with Nordstrom, you can read that HERE.

Hope you are having a great start to your summer and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

Travel in Style with Jon Hart Design






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


I've gone through suitcases over the years.  I will never forget the first set of suitcases given to me...my parents gave me a set of black suitcases after college graduation as we were traveling to Hawaii to celebrate.  I carried those suitcases until the wheels fell off (not really) but I did carry them until they just begged for retirement.

I've also looked at suitcases time and time again...does anyone else find it hard to settle on which suitcase set to get?  They all have their "perks" their bells and whistles but sometimes its just so hard to pick the right one.

So I recently settled on pieces from Jon Hart Design.  I love the look of this set and the size of the larger suitcase is perfect for a long weekend away.  The weekender is perfect for carrying on too!  Not to mention, the personalization adds such a special touch and no one will mistaken your bag for theirs!  The large suitcase also comes with a clear cover that protects your suitcase while flying the friendly skies.  There is nothing worse than a beautiful suitcase getting beaten and marked up so when I travel by air, I always put the protective cover on.

In the need for a new set yourself...I recommend that you consider Jon Hart Design!  Their pieces also make wonderful gifts too!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Pineapples & Poms

Pineapples and pom poms...the perfect little combo for this adorable kimono!  I love the bold red backdrop for this cute pineapple print and the fun colorful pom poms add such a festive touch too!  You can also wear this kimono over your swimsuit if would like!

Of course I had to pair it with my favorite picnic basket bag and these adorable pineapple earrings.  Guessing I just have a thing for pineapples right now but can you blame me?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a great day!

Palm Print Workout Wear





Photography by Hallie Duesenberg


Sometimes you need new workout gear, well and a beautiful tropical destination. to feel inspired.  I picked up this fun subtle palm print workout set prior to my trip to Fairmont Mayakoba as I knew we would be exploring the property, riding bikes, and hopefully doing a little yoga.

I spent some time during the early morning hours, on one of my first days there, meditating and soaking in the beautiful quiet around me.  It was so peaceful and relaxing.

This particular spot overlooks a beautiful canal on property and there was no one else at the pool at the time...talk about solace!  I also spent the morning exploring a Cenote!  I've included my full recap HERE, in the case you want to read my review of the gorgeous Fairmont Mayakoba.

How do you stay inspired with your workout routines?  Is it buying new workout gear, a change of scenery, a new play list?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Dressed for Summer with Nordstrom






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson



The first official day of summer is this week and although we've personally already welcomed summer, I'm looking forward to those longer days where the sun doesn't set until 8:30pm or later.  We love spending summer evenings outside as a family!  Popsicles on the porch and chasing fireflies are two of our favorite things to do.

Most of you know that I LIVE in dresses during the summer.  I would much rather wear a light breezy dress than anything else when it is hot outside.  Not only are dresses perfect for staying cool during the hot summer months but they are also versatile and easy to wear for a variety of occasions.  From running errands, to an outdoor cookout with family or friends, to a date night, or to a wedding...a beautiful summer dress is perfect for all occasions.

Every summer season, I shop for new dresses at Nordstrom.  They have THE BEST selection of summer dresses and I'm alway able to find just what I'm looking for.  From casual to dressy, you can find the perfect dress for every occasion.

When shopping most recently, I saw this gorgeous floral off the shoulder maxi dress at Nordstrom and I was immediately drawn to the style, colors, and bold floral print.  We have some evening events this summer and I knew this dress would work perfectly for some of those events.  I paired it with simple blush heels and a bright white fold envelope clutch.  To not take away from the bold floral print, I kept my earring choice simple with these Sophia drop earrings.

Hope you are all having a great start to your summer!  As always, thank so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

DRESS || SHOES || WATCH || RING

Watercolor buds, the prettiest ruffle flutter sleeves, and pockets!  This Becca Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress from Donna Morgan is such a pretty feminine every day dress.  Perfect for the office, perfect for a special occasion, and perfect for church on Sunday.

What I love most about Donna Morgan's dresses is that they are classic and timeless.  There are a variety of styles to fit every woman's shape and style.  I'm loving some of their new arrivals...bold prints, playful patterns, ruffles, off the shoulder necklines, and special little details.

A Donna Morgan dress is one that you will have in your wardrobe from year to year!
