Palms Palms Palms…this has been one of the biggest prints of the summer and I hope it’s here to stay! I think it’s the cutest ever! This swim top from Albion Fit is killing it! I have worn this over and over all summer because it is so unbelievably flattering, besides being out of control cute. (It also comes with straps!) I love the retro high waisted bottoms, but I have also paired it with normal rise bottoms as well to mix it up a little.
Also, if you’ve never been to the Grand America’s pool, you need to go visit. You don’t even have to stay there. You can pay to come visit for the day! Their food is so yummy and the canopies are perfection.
Another also…Albion Fit just came out with a new Antigua Print! I just picked up some of their new arrivals and I’m shooting some today! So be on the lookout for those, but you can already grab them online and in their store!
I don’t do a lot of beauty posts, but I love when I get to! It’s kind of fun to break out of my fashion mold a little bit! Today I get to tell you about Strong Lash! Most of you know that I get my lashes done, so you’re probably all wondering why I’m telling you about a lash growth serum. As first when they approached me I told them that I get me lashes done so I wouldn’t be able to try out the product, but she explained to met that tons of girls with false lashes use it to strengthen their real lashes and help their false lashes stay on longer! So I said why not! And I’m so glad I did!
You just apply a small amount to the skin of your upper lash line (and lower if wanted) with the applicator brush before makeup and after removal, up to twice a day! You will see results in as little as two weeks! I love it because it keeps my lashes strong for my false lashes. I use false lashes because mine are pretty short and I like having them for my photo shoots, but I guarantee if you just used this product you wouldn’t even need to use false lashes. This helps your lashes grow and stay strong!

P.S. How amazing is this bathroom at The Grand America? It was my favorite part of the room! Gorgeous!
I am ready for hoodies and beanies! I know I’m going to regret saying that in about a month and a half when it’s really cold and starting to snow! But right now I’m so excited for fall clothes!
Billabong sent me this cute hoodie and I love it because it reminds me of home (Cali) and I love the burgundy color. It’s one of my favorite fall colors. It’s also sooo soft! They have tons of cute items for fall so be sure to visit their new arrivals and get stocked up!
The courtyard at The Grand America is gorgeous. It was my favorite place in the hotel…ok well, the bathroom was amazing (and I took full advantage of the bathtub on my stay) and I obviously have a hard time saying anything is better than the pool! Besides the amazing design of the buildings, I was in love with all of the flowers that decorated the outside and the fountain. I could take pictures here forever! I love the way it makes this red dress from J.Crew pop! (P.S. the dress and the bracelet are both on sale at J.Crew right now and you can get an extra 25% off all their sale items and select full-priced items until Sept. 14th! Use code: LOVEFALL)
Also, I’ve been wearing this necklace from Peggy Li Creations on repeat! I love layering it, but I also love the simplicity of it on it’s own. Based out of San Francisco, Peggy Li Jewelry is all handmade and perfect if you are looking for something delicate, yet striking. A fun fact about this jewelry is that it has been featured on all of your favorite popular tv shows, like Hart of Dixie, Vampire Diaries, Arrow and so many more! Visit the site to find the perfect style for you and see if it’s been featured by any of your favorite actresses! Dress – J.Crew; Sandals – Vince Camuto (old – love this style here!); Bracelet – J.Crew; Necklace – c/o Peggy Li Creations (similar here); Ring – BCBG
Today’s dress is from the PB Sands collection from Shabby Apple. I love this collection because it’s more casual and I would wear the pieces in it every day. I love the versatility.
This dress is incredibly comfortable and the fit is perfect. I decided to dress it down a little with converse, but you could wear this to the beach as a cover-up or dress it up with some wedges or sandals.
I also love this necklace from Sacred Jewels. I really like the detail up close. The one I am wearing is Tourmalated Quartz. Sacred Jewels is a collection of handmade jewelry crafted from precious and semi-precious stones. For every piece of jewelry that is purchased, they donate to Save the Children. Save the Children is working to help millions of children and families in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia whose lives are at risk due to severe food shortages brought upon by drought, crop failures and livestock deaths.
The Grand America is gorgeous so I knew I wanted to save this pretty little black dress from Maggy London to wear while I was there. I’m obsessed with the chandeliers and the flowers they have everywhere. They smell divine.
Also, Maggy London is having a huge Labor Day sale! Get 30% off new arrivals and 40% off everything else! Check out their Illusion Collection (like this dress!) because I think it’s absolutely gorgeous!
A few weeks ago I got to stay at The Grand America overnight to get a little taste of all the amazing things their hotel has to offer. (More posts to come on that!) Their sweet shop, La Bonne Vie, is seriously the cutest (and tastiest) thing you have ever seen! I mean how cute is this? I want to live here. If you’re in Salt Lake City, obviously I would recommend staying at The Grand America, but you have to at least stop here for some gelato, macarons, or one of their other amazing treats! The pastries are freshly made daily by their own pastry chef! Also, their cakes are soooo adorable! They made me a cake and sent it to my room, decorated for my blog and it was to die for. (I’ll post photos later!)
