Travel Guide: A Day In The Channel Islands

We woke up before the sun even considered rising to get ready and prep all of our gear for the day.  We had been planning and anticipating our adventure to the Channel Islands for months, only for me to come down with the world’s most terrible, inconvenient cold the day before.  Krystal had suffered through the same cold the first half of our trip (and then passed it on to me… thanks sis). My backpack was stuffed with lots of water,…

Our Stay At The Fontaine In Kansas City

When we walked into the Fontaine for the first time, we knew it was going to be unlike any other hotel we’d ever stayed at before. The whole space was so grand and stunning that I couldn’t believe we were really going to be staying in this beautiful space for the next two nights. There were chandeliers, sky high ceilings, and the prettiest while molding on the walls. It was perfection for a girly getaway, and we felt like royalty…

Fashionista Without A Cause

Somewhere between the Salton Sea and Joshua Tree National Park, Krystal and I spontaneously pulled over to the side of the road. We were halfway in the dessert, but still had a cool view of the mountains-I’d never been anywhere or seen anything like it! The sun was beating down hard that day too, making the area feel much more desolate, and me in desperate need of a popsicle. This Marrakech velvet bomber jacket makes me feel like the female…

The Perfect Pair

These new Sorel Boots are my version of Dorothy’s red slippers. They’re super chic, glamorous, and the perfect statement piece if you love wearing brightly colored tights like me! There’s no tongue on the boot, so the color or design on whatever tights or socks you wear will show through which adds a fun twist to any look. I also love that they have a wedge heel, it gives me just a little more height so I can reach the…

One Day In Seattle

The line was already down to the corner of the street by the time we got there. It was still early morning and everybody else was obviously in the mood for the most delicious biscuits in Seattle just like us. Biscuit Bitch (lol) makes buttery, soft, better than your grandma’s biscuits. BONUS: they make a small amount of gluten free ones a day and they’re AMAZING, but make sure to get there early because they sell out fast! They even…

Big Little Adventures

We visited North Cascades National Park on a recommendation from Bella Bucchiotti, we weren’t disappointed. When we first saw the lake I would have sworn someone had just taken a massive bottle of food dye to it, there was just no way that occurred naturally. I kept saying “It’s so blue!” so many times I’m pretty sure Krystal wouldn’t have minded kicking me out of the car just to get me to shut up.If there’s one thing I look forward…

A Day At Mount Rainier (Part One)

One of the coolest days of our trip to the Pacific Northwest was the day we got to hang out with the wonderful Bella Bucchiotti! We’d found each other on Instagram about a year ago, and discovered we had so much in common. There was no way we couldn’t meet when we were going to be so close! We spent the day on an epic road trip to Mount Rainier, took Bella to Chick-fil-A for the first time, sang way…

$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…
