Fashionista Versus The Sun

I love summer- who doesn’t?! But, summer weather makes me sweat like the little piggy I know I am, and finding ways to keep cool on humid Kentucky days is like finding a needle in a haystack. Sun protection is also a must must have on my list because I have Lupus. Harsh rays will leave me with a nasty rash and can totally drain me of energy if I’m exposed to the sun for too long. The struggle to…

Lauren James Eyelet Circle Skirt

    Skirts are one of my favorite parts about spring, partly because they’re easy to dress up or down, work perfectly with the ever-changing weather, and because I dread wearing pants- they’re just too clingy. This pretty Lauren James skirt is the perfect addition to help your wardrobe spring into, well, spring. The eyelet fabric is super gorgeous and will add a charming touch to your whole look. It even has a detachable sash which you can tie any…

Pretty Pink Jon Hart Luggage

It never fails that every time I go somewhere, I leave with more than I intended to. I, Kayla Pigg, am a notorious over-packer. Whether it’s the snacks I stash in my purse when I’m headed out the door or outfits for vacation, you can bet I’ve got extra. Which is why I’m always on the lookout for great luggage. Packing is the worst– you only have so much room to fit everything you’re going to need for the next…

Lavender Valley

Lavender Valley is the kind of place I could imagine myself living if I were a Disney princess. Waking up everyday to the sweet scent of lavender, the hum of honeybees, and a view of Mount Hood wouldn’t be too shabby. I’d tend to the lavender everyday, and when my prince charming came to take me away to whatever princess duties I had, I’d probably tell him to go away and leave me and my lavender alone- I’m obviously busy.…

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…

Lauren James Mystery Box

My whole life I’ve been obsessed with mysteries. It didn’t matter whether it was the contents of the presents under our Christmas tree, or who the killer was on CSI. I had to know. Nancy Drew, the sleuthing queen, was my role model. Through her I became a sleuth master and learned exactly how to solve every mystery… except maybe what was going to be inside my Lauren James Mystery Box. This black Friday Lauren James has cultivated the perfect…
