$30 Scalloped shift dress

I’ve always had a sweet spot for street art because they’re always so unique and vibrant.. When we’re exploring a new city, seeing the murals on the sides of the buildings is always so fun because it gives you a sense of the town and its people. This pretty pastel mural is located in the Shelby Park area in Louisville. It’s called “Sunshine & Shadow” which is perfectly fitting for the contrasting darker toned shades and colorful hues. What immediately…

$30 Amazon Striped Swimsuit

This summer I (very skeptically) ordered three gorgeous swimsuits off of Amazon.  Since they were all under $30, I wasn’t expecting much, but they are surprisingly well made and have turned into my new favorites! This one piece is awesome because it has such a striking yet sophisticated look with a way different price tag than basically all other swimsuits of its style.  Like, a $100 difference. This fabulous swimsuit has a flattering high waist, which for all of you…

$30 Pinup Swimsuit

I’ve never been much of a two-piece swimsuit gal because they’re never really flattering. They always seem to hit just at the wrong spot and accentuate my food baby, making me wish I hadn’t had dessert like, ever. High waisted two-piece swimsuits though, have totally changed the game. The bottoms come up high enough that they cover up that whole muffin top/ love handle/ what did I eat area. Plus it has a cool vintage vibe and isn’t that fun?!…

Lauren James Taylor Oxford Dress

My family has been going to St. George Island, Florida for vacation since before I was born. Located just a twenty minute drive away from the island though, is a small historic fishing town called Apalachicola. The little fishing town is filled with lush green palm trees, beautiful historic homes, a quiet river, and a deep blue bay where if you watch for a few moments you may see an alligator or a manatee swim right by. Finding a well…

Lauren James Timeless Planner

In this day and age we rely on our cell phones for everything, but what happens when your phone breaks and you lose all of that information? We’ve all dropped our phones before and cringed as we watched our daily schedules, notes, and precious photos drop to their (possible) imminent death. This is why I’ve started writing everything down. Whether it’s my class schedule, work schedule, or my next vacay, having it all written down in a planner helps me…

The Spectacular Sundress

Looking good and being comfortable is always the goal, but sometimes it feels like getting that is going to cost me an arm and a leg, especially if I want to keep the outfit in my closet for a few years. Every once in a while though, you stumble across a gem when you never even realized you were hunting for treasure, and it feels GLORIOUS. That’s exactly how I feel about my Old Navy sundress because it’s comfy, cute,…

Blush Tieks!

Finding shoes that look nice and allow me to be on my feet all day is always a tough task. One of the symptoms of my Lupus is arthritis, so unfortunately some days I feel more like an 80 year old lady walking around. Because of this, finding a perfect pair of shoes is like finding a needle in a haystack! It seems impossible, but you know they’re out there. I’m so glad I finally found Tieks. They’re comfortable, durable,…

Breeders’ Cup

Lets just get real here, this post is all about the day I met Taylor Lautner. Enjoy the other stuff too, but lets get the important stuff out of the way first. I don’t think anyone understands how much I loved Twilight growing up, and yes, I’m admitting to that right here on the Internet for the whole world to read. I was such a huge fan that when I saw him I knew if I didn’t ask for a…

Lauren James Easter Dress

When I was a little girl, I remember my mom and dad telling me all about how fun the Easter egg hunt was going to be. I got clobbered. Easter egg hunts for five-year-old little girls who are there to make friends and collect one or two eggs get massacred. Little children are ruthless when candy is involved (In my defense, no one told me there was candy in the eggs). My dad eventually ran out to the field, scooped…

Pretty Pretty Peplum

When I go shopping for tops, I appreciate a flattering silhouette there just like I do for my coveted fit and flare dresses. That’s one of the reasons why I adore this peplum blouse. The silhouette of this top is different from most peplums, as it is forgiving as well as flattering. A peplum shape will always be a gal’s best friend because it emphasizes her waist and flatters her curves at the same time- making it a perfect go-to! The fun and…
