The Aesthetic I Want in Our Denver Home

I’ve been wanting to update y’all on my plans for decorating the house for weeks now, and I’m so glad I’m finally sitting down to gather my thoughts and write this post. If you’ve been following along, then you already know that I moved from Dallas to Denver in the middle of October. I left a house that I absolutely ADORED and spent the last 3 years decorating and getting…

What to Wear for Engagement Photos

If you followed along on Stories last weekend then you saw Duncan and I got our engagement photos taken!! Ahh, I’m SO excited to see how they turned out!! We went down to Colorado Springs to Garden of the Gods Park, which is absolutely stunning and I highly recommend it for engagement photos or just to visit! Such a cool Colorado sight! But anyway, let’s focus on the task at…

All About My Dallas Home

Hi guys! I’ve been compiling this post for a few weeks now and I gotta tell you, looking through all the photos certainly feels a bit nostalgic. But at the same time, this chapter of my life truly does feel over. Like, if I was offered the opportunity to switch everything back to how things were (back in my Dallas bubble living in this home with Duncan of course!), I…

2 Athleisure Outfits When the Mornings Start Getting Chilly

Hey friends! OK, so just in case you haven’t seen my Stories recently, the Denver weather has hit me HARD. I know that sounds really dramatic LOL, but it’s been a big eye-opener. It’s like I knew it would be different than Dallas, but actually starting to experience it is crazy. Also, I don’t hate it? It’ll take some time to adjust for sure, but I really don’t mind because…

How I Asked My Bridesmaids

Doing something sweet and personalized for my bridesmaids was one of the little things I was really looking forward to when it came to wedding planning! I might not have ever thought about what kind of dress or wedding I wanted, but I DID dream about what little gifts I would get my friends! I think it’s such a fun little personalized touch and way to thank your friends for…

Best of Fall Decor For All Budgets

I showed y’all some of my fall decor a couple of weeks ago on Instagram, but between the move and all the things, it’s pretty much as far as I got. Oh! And I did put some pumpkins on my porch :) While I’m not going full out for fall decor, it’s one of my favorite times to decorate and add little pops of Autumn to the house. Since we’re moving right in the middle of the season, I didn’t think it was smart to buy too much, but if I were…here’s what I’d be buying! I do actually have a few of these items that I’ve used year after year and still LOVE!

Making the most of your single Season

If you’ve hung around my blog or instagram lately, you know some pretty exciting things have been happening around here! I am ENGAGED and I’m MOVING to Denver! While it has been a whirlwind of excitement, it has also sent me into reflection mode. Maybe you’ve been following me since before I met Duncan and remember that I briefly touched on singleness. When I got engaged, one of you guys…

Wedding Dress Shopping at Stanley Korshak Bridal

I’m so excited to finally share my experience of finding my wedding dress! It was SUCH a fun process and honestly, it still feels surreal! Obviously, it’s a HUGE moment and one of those things you loosely think about and then when it’s here, you don’t even know where to start! Before beginning my hunt, I asked around and began looking for reviews online – I knew I wanted to…

Maine Trip Recap

I’m so excited to finally be sitting down to write this blog post. I mean it when I saw that our most recent trip to Maine over Labor Day weekend was probably one of my top 5 favorite trips I’ve ever taken! I went back and forth on how to structure this blog post, but I think the best way is to summarize everything that we did, covering our favorites…

9 Things to do Right After You Get Engaged

I shared the story and how it all happened in this post (thank y’all SO MUCH for all the love on it btw), so now I want to talk about what comes next! I’m guessing there are a few of you out there who might be in the same boat as…

I keep catching my ring out of the corner of my eye and getting all giddy inside – the newness of all of it definitely hasn’t worn off! I’m want to relish every second of it.…

4 Quick Ways to Prep For Your Labor Day Party

I know I sound like a broken record but how the heck is it Labor Day?! LIKE WHAT? Between my trip to Portugal, some wedding weekends, getting engaged (still on a high from that omg), and just life, summer is flying by and I honestly can’t believe we’re already onto Labor Day. While Labor Day technically means the end of the season, it still feels like summer in Dallas until…

3 Things I’ve Learned About Working Out Lately

Since college, I’ve had an ‘all or nothing’ relationship with working out. Growing up I was super active (like most of us are) and I even cheered throughout college so movement was easy – something I just did. But as an adult, I feel like there’s this huge lack of motivation that comes with working out. And maybe it’s because of the pressure we start putting on it. It becomes…

One Thing Making My Life Easier Right Now

If you’ve been following along for a while, you probably know this about me: I’m a lazy driven person. I don’t even know if LAZY is the right word – it’s probably not – but I like life to feel EASY. And I’m not someone who enjoys being on the go 24/7. Does that make sense? Like I will kill myself to make a project perfect, but I also know…

But for today, we’re switching gears and I’m diving into detoxing your home!

My Summer Morning Routine + Favorite Dallas Coffee Shops to Work From

If I had to choose a season where I most like my morning routine, it’s probably summer (though a cozy Fall morning is awesome too!). But there’s something about the warmer, lighter summer mornings that make getting up early easier and all around more enjoyable. I think my early morning Pilates routine has also just instilled waking up earlier and being active in the mornings which has truly been a…
