Bow Booties

Hey y’all and Happy Monday!

Today I’m here sharing with you my new all-time-favorite BOOTIES! They have a bow on them and they are so.. SO adorable. I’m already obsessed and it isn’t even Fall yet – but booties are a year-round shoe in my opinion.

I took these photos this last weekend when I went down to National Harbor in Maryland and did a little shopping at Pepper Palace. In case you’ve never heard of this shop, you should definitely check them out and get some amazing food items – we stocked up on salsa, queso, and wing sauce – YUM.

And yes, these photos are taken in a parking garage stairwell. But I like stairs – OKAY?!

This top is also one of my favorite tops of all time. It’s insanely soft and comfortable, and it’s thin enough to wear during that transition time between summer and fall.

Seven Falls – Things to Do in Colorado

Hey y’all! Hope you all are having an amazing start to the week. I’m here with some serious wanderlust looking back on my latest vacation and wanting to share with you all Seven Falls – Things to Do in Colorado!

In case you didn’t know, I went to Colorado over the 4th of July weekend and had an amazing time. It’s one of my favorite places in the country and it was great to have a little family road trip! I also finally made the trek up Seven Falls… I’ve been a few times but never walked up the steps. I got halfway up before realizing – one of my worst fears is STAIRS. Probably not my brightest moment. But I will say that I have been less scared of stairs since making the trek .. woohoo!

If you ever make it to the Colorado Springs/Denver area, I would definitely recommend taking the hike to the top. And in case you aren’t familiar, Seven Falls is a waterfall with, well.. seven falls! There are seven waterfalls all connected and it’s a wonderful sight to see.

When I used to go as a kid, there was a parking lot on the area, but now there is not. Take note and either be prepared to take the shuttle up or find some other remote parking on the park.

Once you make it into the park and buy your tickets, take my advice and TAKE THE TRAM! There’s a tiny train that runs from the entrance to the falls and trust me – you should take it. We decided to walk and realized halfway through that the uphill hike was much longer than we thought. The train back took less than 3 minutes and was a great idea after putting our legs through hell on all of the steps!

Before walking up all of those stairs, I’d recommend taking a stop at the lookout point just outside. You just take an elevator up (#lazygirlwin) and you have an amazing view of the falls. I really think that this view is even better than the view from on top of the falls. You get a good look at the entirety of it and have a great spot for photos.

And finally, when you walk up the stairs – don’t look down! The steps are tiny and it’s pretty steep, so just make your way up and enjoy the view once you get to the top. It’s SO WORTH IT! Even if you’re scared of stairs how I am, it’s an amazing view that will really let you appreciate the beautiful nature of the area. And you can get a magnet that says you made it to the top.. so obviously you have to do it #duh.

Summer Beauty Essentials

Hey y’all! Long time, no talk…

I actually ended up getting a promotion at work (hollaaa!) So I’ve been a little MIA on the blog front. I’ve been completely swamped and let this fall to the side.. but no more! I’m back!

I don’t know about where you live, but where I am it’s crazy humid outside. So these are my top summer beauty essentials for the hot, humid summer months.

T-Shirt Dress

Hey y’all! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

My mother-in-law came into town for her birthday weekend and we had a great time sightseeing and celebrating! I got myself a library card to the library of congress (talk about a cool place to work/study), and we finally got into the capitol building for a tour. I’ll be sure to do more DC posts soon and a vlog channel will be coming even sooner! (is that a word..?)

But we were outside of the capitol building and I thought.. what better place for some blog photos?! I was wearing my all time FAVORITE t-shirt dress. This thing is crazy comfortable and I want it in every color possible. Forreals.

In addition to the exact items I’m wearing, I also linked to some amazing deals from the Nordstrom sale going on right now. So be sure to shop this look and similar items (& great deals) in the slider at the end of this post!

Unfortunately the capitol building was under construction and the scaffolding was up so we didn’t get to see the amazing designs inside the dome. BUT We did get in on the last day they were doing tours before closing up shop for 2 months to complete the construction. I’ll definitely want to see the finished product!

It has also been crazy hot up here, so a t-shirt dress is perfect for insanely hot summer days. It’s comfortable but still flowy, and I love a good year-round bootie.

Hope you all have an amazing day!

Denim Shorts

Hey y’all! Happy monday!

I feel like every post I’m complaining about how humid it is where I live. But for real – it’s HUMID! It’s hard to even wear shorts because anything feels constricting. But this outfit was super comfortable and perfect for our day out in the city. We went to our friends place then to a housewarming party, and denim shorts are always my go-to clothing item during the summer for days out.

I also wasn’t sure what to do with my hair that day – so I decided to do a twisty half up hairstyle. I’m thinking about doing  a summer no-heat hairstyle video/post.. let me know what you think!

You also can’t tell in these photos (we were in a bit of a rush taking these), but the back of the top is lace up and I’m OBSESSED! I could wear this backwards and put the lace in the front as well. I love the lace up style for summer and I can see how it can wear SO cute into Fall as well.

Be sure to shop this look and similar items in the slider below! I was comfortable in the crazy heat but also didn’t feel super exposed – which I think is really important during the summer months.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
