Sweetheart Neckline Blouse with Ruffle Detailing

White Blouse Ruffle Sleeves Sweetheart Cut

Hi boys and girls!

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. Mine was nice and relaxing. I spent a lot of time with the boy which is my favorite. Friday we visited a new restaurant down the street, José, and loved it. If you’re in the Dallas area I highly recommend. Great Mexican food but beware of the margaritas, they’ll knock you on your ass.

We spent Saturday morning walking around Klyde Warren and Downtown. We’re making it a point to explore different neighborhoods on the weekends. It’s nice to mix things up. If you have any suggestions for us, leave them in the comments below.

Sunday we were extra lazy with a night in having drinks on the patio and Monday was for catching up on errands and blog work. I swear, that stuff never ends!

In total it was a good weekend and I hope you soaked it up as much as we did.

Favorite self-tanner and 3 genius self-tanning hacks

white knot top bathing suit

Everyone knows the self-tanning basics.

Exfoliate prior.

Apply lotion on dry areas (elbows, knees) before application.

And use a mitt for even application.

There are several more but why discuss what we already know? Instead, let’s talk about 3 of my favorite self-tanning hacks (techniques I use on the reg) that aren’t so frequently covered. Why?

  • It’s the time of year for glowing skin.
  • Hemlines are only getting shorter and you need some color on those limbs.
  • Sun damage is not an option. Gross.
  • And because sharing is caring.

With that being said, let’s dive in to perfecting our self-tanning routines, ladies!

Rust tie-front dress

Rust Colored Midi Dress Perfect for Summer

I wore this gorgeous privacy please dress to a friend’s graduation party this past weekend. It is the perfect knit for summer. The shade of rust is everything and I’m crazy about the cut-out with tie detail in front.

I opted for a simple nude mule to keep in tune with the dress’ minimalistic style. Additionally, I left the baubles to a bare minimum. Gold layers never fail.

My summer style

Blue Backless Tie Dye Dress with Flutter Sleeve Detail

Time is flying and Memorial day is almost here. I recognize the holiday as the first day of Summer, even though the calendar claims it to be June 21st. We all know that’s a bunch of bullshit.

Technicalities aside, my wardrobe reflects the season of sun. I’ve begun to gravitate towards certain styles/items and don’t foresee a change of heart anytime soon. Here are the pieces you can expect to see me in for the next three months- linking some of my favorites for you as well.
