Erin Wasson X Free People


Erin Wasson is a such a cool girl in my eyes so I am naturally swooning over the photos of her in Free People's March catalog. Her carefree approach and style is what draws me to her and also, she looks so gorgeous in these looks. Definitely sold me the collection ;) You can find all the pieces in these looks here 
Thanks for reading!

Sunday Crafts

I love just getting in a zone and being able to be creative, even if I'm just making a simple bracelet or starting a new scarf. I just love the process of coming up with an idea, realizing it, and seeing the finished result. I don't really get to be that creative at my "real job" but when I am coming up with new ideas for crafts, outfits, inspiration and subsequently blogging about it, that is when my creativity comes out and I really enjoy it :) What do you guys like to do when being creative?

Festival Wears

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9

I am so in love with the fashion I have been seeing lately for Coachella. I so wish I could have gone but instead I am left to admire the photos and outfits! If you guys are at all into Coachella fashion, then you know that Vanessa Hudgens killed it this year. I am in love with her even more now! I put together some of the things that I would bring along to the desert if I had the chance to go. The music festivals for this year are not over yet, so there is still hope ;) What would you wear to a music festival?

Maxi Skirt and Leather

Hey guys! I am so in love with this maxi skirt I picked up at H&M the other day. It is so light and flowy and I know I am going to be wearing it more and more this summer. This skirt came in two other colors I believe, so I am for sure going back to pick up the other two. If you follow my blog then you know I am loving my hats! :) I just love how it completes a look and I feel can go with anything. I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for reading!

Dreaming in Pastel

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Pastels always look so feminine and sweet in my eyes. Anything in blush or mint or any pastel shade is great to welcome spring. I am loving blush-toned maxi skirts and a hint of mint in any outfit. Since Easter is right around the corner, I got inspired to search for pastel pops of colors to add to my outfits. Will you wearing pastels this spring?

Forever21 dress | Forever21 hat | Jeffrey Campbell boots | DIY bracelets 

It felt like summer this weekend so naturally I decided to grab a light, floral dress for the occasion. Seeing the flowers finally blooming gives me so much excitement! This weekend we loaded up on fruits and veggies for our weekend vegan cleanse. It felt so good to drink fruit infused water in the morning followed by smoothies and fresh juices. We look forward to doing it again as the temperature rises. I hope your weekend was lovely, thanks for stopping by :)

New dresses for spring (floral dress here)

New beauty products from Sephora

Lovely rose pink colored yarn

New planner and notebook from Poppin here and here

With the beginning of spring comes a lot of shopping as you can see :) I am super excited that Spring is finally here. I feel like I talk a lot about the weather all the time but it is something that it's part of our every day lives and that alters how I feel and what I wear (obviously). With the warmer weather, I am looking forward to eating healthier and getting exercise. I can't say that I am the most fit person, so going out for walks or running is something that I am really looking forward to. Eating healthier also comes with spring. I have always been curious about being vegan and eating only raw fruits and vegetables, so my fiance and I will be doing a cleansing weekend only eating the most freshest produce we can find. This will be a challenge for us but that makes it all that better and will also make us healthier even if it's just for two days. I would like to know what you guys are looking forward to doing for this spring/summer :)

Crop Top and Clear Skies

The place that we shot these pictures at is not really that reminiscent of the desert but it sure made me wish I lived by it. I love a beautiful scenery that ranges from clear skies to fields of flowers. Sometimes I wish I could live in a more rural place for the purpose of admiring these types of scenery (wouldn't hurt for taking outfit of the day pictures either). This past Sunday the new season of Game of Thrones started! We had a viewing party at my house filled with drinks, good food, and company. It was a great time and felt good to hang out and relax. How was your weekend?
