East vs. West Style - Lace!

Happy Thursday Loves!

Another month has come and gone which means it's time for the East vs. West Style Collab with the oh so amazing Pamela from Sequins & Sea Breezes! This time around we're all about the lace/crochet trend which is sizzling hot this season!

I absolutely LOVE Pamela's bright coral lace shorts and can we talk about how tan she is?! They're so fun and look great paired with off set neutrals like her basic black tank, nude Tory Burch sandals and chic long necklace! Make sure to check out the rest of her look here!

Truth be told I took these photos a couple of weeks ago when I visited Dallas for my cousin Ansley's wedding. I crashed for maybe an hour or so after getting off the plan, but then got up and headed to the Grassy Knoll in downtown Dallas to see where JFK had been shot and go to the museum to learn all about it. 

The entire afternoon was spent with my family and since my sister just had her jaw surgery, she wanted as many photos taken as possible - and rightfully so! 

My hair was a hot mess from just getting off the plane so I braided my bangs back and put that strand of hair into a braid with the rest of my hair. I kind of like how it turned out!

Month in Instagram - April

Happy Monday Dolls!

I usually aim to get my month in Instagram out within the first week of the new month, but alas I have once again procrastinated and now it's the end of May .... what the what? Where time has flown by to I have NO idea!

 Wine tasting with Dr. D for our 2 years
Monogram everything! I'm a sucker for anything and everything monogrammed!
 One of the perks of PR is getting to test out their new stuff - whether it's menus, a particular product or in this case the spa! Spa Montage hooked me up with a fabulous massage and morning of relaxation!
 Obsessed with the print of this ikat dress - perfect for Spring
Just threw this peach and gold combo on one morning and loved the way it turned out!
 Since I moved, Dr. D and I don't get to see our favorite fur ball anymore so him and Jeff the cat had one last bonding session
Enjoying a much needed Shock Top on my new roof patio after a long day of moving!
 In the midst of unpacking I threw in the towel, made some popcorn and caught up on Once Upon A Time
Driving to a work event I couldn't help but take a photo of the palm trees lining the road in Beverly Hills
Received my monogrammed (told y'all I'm obsessed) acrylic case from Prep Obsessed - still not sure where to use it at though on my new vanity 
My dear sorority sister Aly sent me a 3 month subscription to BirchBox .... just because! I am so thankful for the dear friends I've been blessed with!

That's it to wrap up April's month in Instagram ... hopefully May will be more entertaining :)

Memorial Day Weekend + Stylish Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Dolls! 

I hope everyone had a phenomenal Memorial Day Weekend and enjoyed some quality time doing what they love! I celebrated one of my best friend's birthdays at the beach, bought some furniture for the house and spent some quality R & R time with Dr. D - which was more than needed! 

In addition to a weekend full of fun, I also am participating in a $235 Asos gift card giveaway with 19 other fabulous bloggers! Be sure to enter via the Rafflecopter below and show the other ladies some love! 

After a weekend at the beach playing volleyball and going out to the bars for a birthday celebration, I really wanted to be cozy for the latter end of the weekend. Rather than throw on a v neck tee and shorts (my go to look,) I figured I'd stay stylish and comfortable with printed shorts and chambray - one can never go wrong with chambray! 
 Obsessed with this stack!

I love taking photos on my patio, but I got a little adventurous and wanted to take some on the roof. Dr. D was totally for it and I love how they turned out!

Can we just talk about the perfect use of a "pop of color?!" Black and hot pink are always the perfect color combo in my book, but adding the green blazer is sheer genius! The polka dot lining pairs so well with the coloring of her Louis Vuitton bag and let's be real, I love all of her over-sized statement pieces!
