Fourth Of July!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend filled with great food, good vibes, and nice weather!! – We kept it pretty simple this year, mostly because we  had to work the next day, but it was a great time!

It’s been busy over here with wedding planning & work, but I had to share some of my fourth of July looks! For some reason I wanted to be festive this year -LOL.

I like tying a jacket around my waist to make it more defined, especially since the dress is not tight to the body. This look is super casual, but you could also dress it up. I think that’s what I love about it! Plus it’s only $36 dollars!

-Next up is this two piece amazon find! I wasn’t sure when I purchased it if I was going to like it, but I ended up REALLY liking it! Since I’m short I was concerned about the high waist making me look odd. However, I have seen so many other bloggers (of all body types) with this same bathing suit & it looks great on all of them! It comes in a lot of other colors & its only $25 dollars! – STEAL

I’ve linked below – HOWEVER the blue/white t-shirt dress is sold out so I linked the same dress in a different color!

Friday Vibes

-If you’re anything like me you want to look cute, but be comfortable. Especially on the weekends! For the most part we’re pretty laid back when it comes to what we do. Hiking, drinking, and casual nights in with friends is our vibe. However, sometimes you want to look and feel good while doing it!!

-I have TWO looks that I am sharing with you today that I would wear for those weekend nights out!! Of course, you all know I love my black-LOL.

First up is this jumpsuit from Amazon!! That’s right, and only $20 dollars & comes in more colors! I’ll link it here.

I’m pretty short, so it’s a little long. I ordered a medium due to chest size, however I think a small would have worked, especially for a shorter length. Nothing the dryer probably couldn’t fix!

Next up is a romper from Express! Now, its from last season so it’s no longer on their website, BUT I’ll link a similar one in shape & style here. Currently on SALE TOO!!

-You could change both looks up depending on what you wanted. Create a more casual look with each by adding flats/sandals. Or dress it up with some heels and cute accessories!! I love jackets, so that’s usually my go to.

-Always, Tara XOXO

Let’s Jump Around!

Recently, while walking around Marshalls I stumbled upon this jumpsuit that I couldn’t pass up. Now, normally I would have NEVER thought twice about buying something so bright and bold… but I had to have it! Not to mention it was only $12 dollars!! – A STEAL

Fashion is something I love, but am never brave enough to take chances with – which I’m working on. Every now and then though, it’s exciting and fun to try something you normally wouldn’t!

I paired it with a jean jacket that I got from Express years ago, and a nude shoe. However, it can be worn by itself as well with flats or sandals for a more casual look. It really is perfect for Spring/Summer! I think the only thing that would make it better is pockets!

I received so many compliments on my Instagram post that I wanted to share similar looks with you. That way everyone can enjoy stripes of their own!! – Obviously, we all know I can’t link Marshalls (which is sad) but I do recommend going to your local store and exploring for random finds! – Below, I linked three similar option, all under $100!!

-These jumpsuits are so cute! I think I might get all of them. Dress them up with jackets, heels, etc. for the perfect work look, or dress down for a casual night out. Let me know which one is your favorite! I think I know mine already! XOXO

3 Pieces Every Girl’s Closet Needs

-Lets talk about work attire. Deciding what to wear has been my biggest challenge lately. I always tend to go for comfort above all else. Sometimes though, I like to dress it up. Personally, I think you need to dress it up every once in awhile to boost your mood and confidence.

However, business casual can be tricky. You don’t want to be too casual and sometimes you don’t want to be all business. That’s why I have found that owning these three staple pieces are essential. -What are they you ask? A blazer, A high waisted skirt, A cute tank. You can dress each piece up or down, and together they can make a statement.

{  Blazer: Here  |  Tank: Here    |   Skirt: Here    }

I love this color tank so much I actually have this color in three other shirts I own! Plus, I love black so a pop of color is needed every now and then. Everything you see here is from Express. I was able to find the same blazer and skirt, however the tank is different.

-Each piece is sort of affordable – Lol. BUT keep in mind it can all be worn separately to make different outfits/looks. If you wanted a more casual look for a Friday you could replace the skirt with a nice pair of jeans & booties!

Spring is right around the corner so I’ll be sharing more skirts and dresses! I’ve yet to wear either with tennis shows, however I want to try it out! Maybe we can do it together and share our looks!

Always – Tara

Halloween Vibes

Hey everyone!

Can you believe that it’s already November?! I don’t know about you, but I’m already starting to feel the pressure. Getting the house ready, food menus, and of course hanging with FAMILY. 🙂 I know too much, right?

Don’t worry we have some time still. For right now, lets grab ourselves a drink and enjoy each other’s company. 🙂

So Halloween was not that long ago, and I wanted to jump on here real quick and share my DIY Costume I did this year! I always dress up, which could be because I bartender for seven years, and well… you dress up in a bar! ( Tips, ya know)

Anyway, now I work in an office, so my costume choices have changed to say the least, but I still enjoy it. So this year I decided to be Mary Poppins!

I went with the bag instead of the umbrella.

I did eventually decorate my hat, which I think made a big difference!

It was super cute and fun to do! I also posted some fun boomerangs and video’s on my Instagram! ( So if you missed it, make sure to go FOLLOW me on there!)

I bought all the pieces separately, which I am going to link below for you! The shoes I already had, which are from DSW!
