Bright High-Low Tank from Recycled Design

I have been following Recycled Design & Consign‘s shop online and on instagram for a while now and I finally get to share some items with you! I’m so excited because they’re unique and so cute. Today I am wearing this bright, printed high-low tank from their shop that is just so perfect for summer. I love the geometric print and shape so much. It’s not your typical tank. I would wear this for everyday, to a BBQ, going to a concert or out at night, or throw it on to go to the pool. It’s so versatile! I paired it with a big gold necklace, but I have so many pieces of jewelry I want to try with it!

Style Lessons from Sex and the City

I have to apologize because I have barely even blogged the last two weeks. I have been sooo busy at work, I was out of town, and then I was sick. So, here is a little pick me up from one of my favorite shows and one of the best fashion shows ever. I found this on WhoWhatWear.com and had to share because it’s just so true. Happy Saturday everyone, I’ll be back next week! I promise.

1. The right bag can make an outfit: “Balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we’d feel naked in public without it.” – Carrie BradshawSATC1

2. Never compromise your taste: “I’d like a cheeseburger, large fries, and a Cosmopolitan.” – Carrie BradshawSATC2

3. Your wardrobe counts as a liquid asset: “I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.” – Carrie BradshawSATC3

4. Shoes can make you just as happy as a man: “It’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes—that’s why you sometimes need really special shoes!” – Carrie BradshawSATC4

5. Running to a sale counts as exercise: “Shopping is my cardio.” – Carrie BradshawSATC5

6. The higher the heel, the closer to heaven: “I’m not afraid of heights…have you seen my shoes?” – Carrie BradshawSATC6

7. Trends are fleeting; friends are forever: “They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.” – Carrie BradshawSATC7

8. Head scarves: okay. Scrunchies: not okay: “I loved it…Except for one huge problem. You have your leading lady running all over town wearing a scrunchie. A scrunchie!” – Carrie BradshawSATC8

9. Never apologize for unconventional outfit choices: “You shouldn’t have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else has a problem with it.” – Carrie BradshawSATC9

10. The perfect fit is worth waiting for: “A relationship is like couture—if it doesn’t fit perfectly, it’s a disaster.” – Juliette B. from Sex & The CitySATC10

11. Designer labels? Yes. Judgmental labels? No: “Some labels are best left in the closet.” – Carrie BradshawSATC11

12. Never be too busy to dress up: “No matter how fast paced the city is, I always manage to get my clothes on before I leave the apartment.” – Carrie BradshawSATC12

13. A drop necklace is a great way to emphasize your décolletage: “Maybe the best any of us can do is not to quit, play the hand we’ve been given, and accessorize the outfit we’ve got.” – Carrie BradshawSATC13

14. A Tide pen can be a girl’s best friend: “I will never be the woman with the perfect hair who can wear white and not spill on it.” – Carrie BradshawSATC14

15. A classic stripe is always in style: “This isn’t about stripping, it’s about striping.” – Carrie BradshawSATC15

Tie Dye Maxi by Ecote

I love a good maxi. Urban Outfitters has a bunch of really unique ones like the one I am wearing here. I love the bright embroidery on the front of the dress. It makes the whole dress pop. I’m also kind of a huge fan of tie dye again right now, so I’m sure you’ll see that some more on me this summer!

Venice Beach Swimsuit from Albion Fit

Last week I was asked to wear a swimsuit for Albion Fit on the Fresh Living segment of KUTVs news program. I was a little nervous at first because who wants to stand around in a swimsuit…especially on tv…but it really wasn’t bad and it was pretty fun. Plus I LOVE Albion so I was happy to do it! They make the best quality swimwear, so if you are looking for a swimsuit for the summer you definitely need to visit their site. They have extremely flattering and modest swimwear in the cutest styles and patterns! I love the material they use as well, because it’s thick so it’s not going to show all of your flaws and it won’t wear out after one season.

This is the Venice Suit and it is one of their more popular styles! The underwire flatters those of us who are less fortunate in the bust area 🙂 and the paneled sides give a flattering illusion of a whittled waist. Who doesn’t want that?

Tingi Jacket from Anthropologie and a $150 Giveaway to Sephora!!!

Mother’s Day is coming up and Coupons.com has some amazing deals for all of you super hero moms out there! Make sure to visit all of these great Mother’s Day Deals on Coupons.com because you don’t want to miss out.

Being a mom is tough sometimes! You don’t get a lot of time to yourself and you have to run around and put everyone else first! When do you have time for your health and wellness? Well coupons.com is trying to make that a little bit easier for all you moms out there. They are giving away $150 to Sephora (one of my favorite places!) for Mother’s Day! I wanted to share a few of my favorite products that keep me healthy and beautiful during the summer, since it’s coming!!!

Josie Maran makes some of my favorite beauty products that keep my hair and skin healthy. Plus, it’s so quick to use, you don’t have to spend a ton of time getting ready, which is perfect if you are a mom!

Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum – This serum is an anti-frizz treatment that creates tons of shine and provides intense moisture to your hair. It provides long-term repair to each strand of hair, so it’s perfect to use during the summer while you’re taking kids to the pool or beach and getting all of that sun and chlorine damage to your hair! Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 – All-natural, non-greasy, long-lasting moisturizer that has a high SPF for skin protection. This is my favorite face moisturizer. I use it every day. You should use a moisturizer on your face every day and I love this one because it’s not heavy, but it provides very good protection. Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47

Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment – an argan-infused balm that conditions repairs, and protects dry lips!Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment

If I got the chance to win the $150 gift card, I would probably stock up on my Josie Maran staples (beauty and health!) and maybe throw in some sassy bright pink lipsticks from NARS, because I think I’m going to be loving those for summer as well. I might just be sending some of this to my own mom as well. Good luck to everyone! Scroll below to enter the giveaway!

Here’s another fun outfit for today as well! I’m loving the Kimono trend so much this year. Anthro calls this a jacket, but I’m pretty sure it can be considered a Kimono.

Spring Blossoms and Free People

If I had gone to Coachella…

This is what I would have worn…but I obviously probably would have been much cleaner. And I think I’m liking this setting much more. These blossoms are so incredibly beautiful. My amazing photographer, Britney, found this gorgeous place, not too far from where I live and I just about died. How pretty is it? We hit it just when the sun was coming up and all the flowers were just perfect. So as much as I love music, I think a day of laying in the sun here in the quiet would be just as good.

I also have to gush over this dress a little bit. I’m in love with Free People right now. I want everything in their store. If you see me this summer I think I will be living in dresses like this. Just breezy, fun summer dresses that you can throw on and go do whatever in. Ahhh…can’t wait for summer!

Provo Fashion Week – ABree Original Show

The aBree Original Spring 2014 Line at Provo Fashion Week

by Bree Wilkins DSC_0047DSC_0043cropfashion-show_42-756x1024

I got the opportunity to walk for Bree’s line at Provo Fashion Week this year and it was so fun! You’ve already gotten to see a lot of it on my instagram and my previous posts because I got to do a shoot for most of the outfits in her collection after the show, but I wanted to do a post about the actual show too. I met some really awesome girls doing this and Bree is seriously amazing. Her designs are unbelievable and she is the sweetest person you have ever met. The show was a blast and hanging out with all the girls “behind the scenes” was so fun! So here you go, you get to see what we did all day and meet all of them!

Getting ready at Paul Mitchell! We went and got our hair and makeup done. I always love having someone else do it for me because I think I’m terrible at it and I love having someone play with my hair.photo 4-14photo 1-27photo 4-18

We also did a little “pre” shoot at Bree’s house before the show, so here are pictures of all the girls walking and in the outfits before. I added their instagram names in case anyone wants to follow them or use them later! A few of the girls also have blogs too, so check them out!
