IMG_1222

I don’t know about you but sometimes, especially in the summer, I just want to be COMFY and feel like I don’t have to tug on this and tug on that to look like I have it all together (I know you feel me). This outfit is so simple, so casual, and so comfy. The main piece? A simple white tee.

This tee is from the amazing Ellis and Company. Guys, this company is going to be super involved with my Frugal Friday series because they have the most amazing prices! I just can’t get enough of them.

Its at Ellis and Company for $27 (holy amazing price difference!) and I’m in love with it. The quality is extremely durable and so soft. Plus, I have a coupon code for you! I swear giving you coupon codes it my absolute favorite thing. Use “Whit20” for 20% off your whole order at Ellis and Company! The this top will end up being $21 with the code, holy cow!

The beautiful necklace is from Larae Boutique, yes the same boutique that I got that beautiful gold and white clutch from in my Summer Date Night Look post. The necklace is only $5 with coupon code “whitj10” for 10% off anything in their shop!

You Better Believe I Wear Olivia Wares

IMG_0962

I recently found this company through Instagram called Olivia Wares they have beautiful, unique, fashion finds in their boutique and I truly enjoy browsing their shop… I do if often.

In this perfectly cool and fun summery outfit I am featuring their floral leggings. Guys, these leggings are as soft as butter and (as you can see) I am a girl with curves and these have plenty of stretch to perfectly cover my curves. I didn’t feel like I was bursting out of them AT ALL (which is not that easy to find when it comes to leggings and my bod).

Ready for the best parts? I am giving away one pair of leggings from Olivia Wares this week so stay tuned for the details on that. ALSO, I’m all about beauty on a budget so I have a killer 40% off coupon code for you to use on anything in their shop!

4th of July is one of my very favorite holidays; BBQ’s, sunshine, fireworks, water fights summer nights and my fave… fun fashion! You can ask my hubs, every year I am on the hunt for the perfect 4th of July outfit. One that keeps me cool, is cute, lets me play hard, and has plenty of red, white, and blue. This year was the year that I finally found an outfit that has it all!

Summer is HOT// My Tips On Staying Cool

IMG_0720-1 This Summer has been the hottest Summer in Utah for a very long time. Now, I am a huge fan of Summer time (who in the right mind isn’t??) but when it’s this hot this early into Summer, it definitely make things interesting. I am going to share with you how I stay cool without sacrificing style or modesty. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and we believe in being modest, especially after we have been endowed in the Temple (even though that is what I believe, it totally doesn’t mean I don’t love you all the same if you don’t feel the same way… I promise!). Thus, I have always had a hard time when Summer came because its so HOT and when it’s so hot the only way to cool down is to wear less…right? WRONG! Here are my tips on how: Skirts, dresses, and sandals, oh my! 1. Dresses- I LIVE in skirts and dresses in the summer time. Lately I have been obsessed with Baseball tee dresses. There are so many amazing midi dresses out there that are so comfy and so BREEZY. Yes breezy, I feel way cooler in a midi dress than I even do in capris. Sometimes I have the problem with dresses not being quite long enough, when I run into this problem I always size up. More baggy and less fitted is definitely in right now so its a win win 🙂 Here are links to some of my favorite summer breezy dresses: Moxie and Threads (remember to enter in “whitjmoxie” for 20% off your purchase) Mindy Mae’s Market, and Sonnet JamesIMG_0637 IMG_0824 IMG_0634 2. Sandals… let yo feet breathe!! Lets also talk about how amazing sandals look with skirts and dresses. Here are some of my very favorite sandals right now: PS I Adore You, Target (they have a promo going on right now, save 20% on shoes and accessories), and Piper and Scoot 3. Skirts with graphic tees, lets be honest here… graphic tees are all the rage and I am SO HAPPY ABOUT IT! Just like dresses, skirts give you that easy breezy feeling in this summer heat. It is the perfect way to stay nice and cool. Graphic tees are so cute and are completely effortless, you honestly can’t go wrong with a graphic tee. Add a graphic tee to any skirt and I promise that you will be rocking it. Here are some of my favorite summer skirts: Modest Pop, and Laurel Sherbert (you know getting two for one is like my favorite thing…look at these skirts and you will totally know why I love them. Enter in code “SUMMER15” for 20% off your purchase). Now for some of my favorite graphic tees: Arsenic and Lace, and Sweet T’s Design. IMG_0591IMG_0812 4. McDonalds Diet coke….nuff said- keep yourself hydrated! I know this isn’t fashion related but I think my veins bleed diet coke so I had to add it in here :). I would LOVE to hear how you stay cool in the Summer, comment below and let me know! Thanks for reading! FullSizeRender

Pink, Tulle, and Floral // Getting the Most Out of Your Purchases

IMG_0823

My outfit today involves three of my favorite things; pink, tulle, and floral. These three are such a great combination together, you really just can’t go wrong. You might recognize this shirt from one of my previous posts a few back called Laid Back Summer  Lovin! In that post I styled this shirt very casually. But this time around I styled it fancy. Which brings me to the topic of how to make the very most out of your purchases.

I am not, nor will I ever be, the type of blogger who buys prada and wears Louis Vuitton, there is absolutely nothing wrong with those designers but I am just not a designer type. When I buy, I buy for style (of course) but I also buy for versatility. My hubs and I have a budget we set each month and I stay within that budget, even as I blog. In order to do this I look for pieces to buy that I know I can wear at least two different ways, like this shirt. If I can’t wear it two different ways then I rarely buy it…unless I am in LOVE with it and in that case…well you know what that case is :).

This shirt is from White Plum right now you can get 40% off your order of $40 or more by entering in code “AMERICAN BEAUTY”

What are your tricks for style on a budget? I would love to hear from you! I am always looking for new ideas. Thanks for reading!

Summer Hiking Vacation Essentials// Where to buy Lululemon Pants for Cheap

IMG_0728

My hubs and I love to hike, once it hits anywhere near March (if it has been a mild winter in Utah) we are out there taking the trails by storm! When we can, we love to go hiking in Zion National Park in Utah. Zion is just a few hours drive from us so we are lucky! The trails are beautiful and that red rock is unlike anything else. If you have never been, GO! Even if you aren’t a hiker, there are trails for any level of physical fitness…or hiker savvy-ness. This fun outfit was inspired with my vacation in mind, with the amount of hiking we do,  typically feel like being casual for the after party when we get home at night. This outfit was beyond comfy and beyond practical, especially for an active type vacation.

I am also going to give you a few of my hiking essentials, one of the things on my list is a pair of Lululemon compression pants. There really is no other workout pant like Lululemon’s, they are so amazing it almost makes me mad. When I first heard of people paying around $100 for a pair of workout pants I was mad… until I tried them for myself and for an avid worker-outer, they are almost worth every penny. I don’t pay $100 for mine, I pay $50. My trick? I buy them COMPLETELY NEW on Ebay. They typically only have the basics but the basics are just as good as their specialty pants. I have been nothing but impressed with the Lululemon pants that I receive from Ebay. DISCLAIMER: If you buy them from Ebay, they will take about 2 months to arrive to you, just fyi :).

Now for my hiking Essentials:

1. Lululemon Compression Pants

2. Sassy Workout Tank 

3. Cool Kicks

4. Sick Shades 

5. Camel Back Waterbottle

6. Small Pack

Happy trails!
