Lovely In Lace

8EAD8287-97C4-4E27-808C-6FC6E9EBFB8DHappy Monday! My hubby is starting week 3 of Ob/Gyn.  He has been working nights, so I have barely seen him this week. As hard as it is to not have a “normal” marriage right now, I am so thankful because Jake finally graduates in less than a year now! I know residency will not be all fun and games, but we’re both so ready for school to be over.

One of my favorite things I cannot get enough of lately is lace. I am constantly finding myself drawn to lace dresses. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I’ve worn several lace dresses this spring. I wanted to do a round up and share my 3 favorite lace dresses I have bought this season. These are all still available and I LOVE them.

Dress: Here, Red Version Silver Chandelier Earrings: Here (Color Bar-Style Greta, stones drusy and slate), Similar Glitter Bow Heel: Here Clutch: Here

I bought this dress with no real event in mind to wear it to. On the day of my hubby’s med school formal, I made a last minute decision to wear it. It worked out perfect. The thing I love about it is that it’s so versatile. It can be dressed up or down. In the formal case, I dressed it up with dressy silver shoes and a clutch. I also wore it on a date night with nude block heels and pink tassel earrings.

It is perfect for a date night, cocktail party/ spring wedding, brunch, or a bridal shower. For a brunch or luncheon, I would suggest a little cardigan over the shoulder to make it a little more conservative. Also, I would recommend more of a sandal with a heel.

The best part about this dress is the straps are adjustable. I got a size small and it fit perfectly. This dress also comes in red and is gorgeous. Too bad I don’t have an event to wear it to 😉

Lacey Lace Halter Sheath Dress

Dress: Here Earrings: Here (Color Bar-Style Greta, stones drusy and slate), Bracelet: Here Shoes: Similar Bag: Similar

I initially bought this one for my hubby’s formal, but changed my mind last minute. Here are more pictures of me wearing it in our Jord Watches blog post. It is the most dressy of the 3 and is just gorgeous. I love the halter details. It is perfect for spring weddings or a brunch with a cardigan. It is a midi length which is very in right now. I paired it with statement earrings and bow heels. This dress is true to size. This picture below shows the fit better.

Crochet Pom-Pom Trim Sheer Lace Dress

Dress: Here, Black Version Earrings: Here, Similar (same look, but lower price) Bag: Here Shoes: Here 

This dress is one of my favorites. I love that it incorporates current trends with the pom pom and bell sleeve details. I did a full blog post on this dress here. I paired this dress with rock stud dupes and statement earrings. This dress also comes in black and is super cute. With this particular retailer, their items tend to run small. However, this item has a larger fit, so I went down a size. If you are taller, I would recommend staying with your typical size as it is a little on the short side.

I tried the Sonia V-Neck Sleeveless Block Lace Sheath Dress and loved it. It’s on sale now. (Excuse my selfie, but it’s too good to not share)

It’s All About Embroidery

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! I don’t know about you, but this weekend flew by for us (they always seem to). On Friday, we went to my hubby’s med school ball and just relaxed the rest of the weekend. He only has 8 more weeks until he starts his 4th year of med school. We are both so ready!

You may have noticed that I am not doing as many blog posts as normal. I am trying to work on a new way to switch things up and maybe drop down to two blog posts weekly instead of three. I am very overwhelmed between blogging and working full-time, so this should help.

IMG_9022IMG_1206One trend I am obsessed with is embroidery.  It’s all about embroidery for summer and spring. It is everywhere from jeans to dresses. I am so glad it’s back because it reminds me of my childhood. I will never forget this little embroidered denim jacket that I had and some jeans with pink flowers. I probably still have them at my parents house.

The thing that I love about embroidery is that it incorporates so many fun colors. Bright colors make me happy, so I jumped on board with this trend quick. It reminds me of a fiesta!IMG_1205

When I wear something embroidered, I like to accessorize with colors that are in the embroidery pattern. Recently we had beautiful weather on a date night, so I decided to wear my new skirt. I decided to play up the pink and tone it down with this black ruffle bodysuit (I promise I don’t wear it everyday).  FYI, this skirt runs small, so I recommend sizing up. I also recommend wearing a bodysuit with it, since it lays better with the skirt.

The Perfect Pink Lace Dress

IMG_8551IMG_8550IMG_7714IMG_8552

Happy Monday! I cannot believe Easter is on Sunday. I made our brunch reservations last week at a restaurant called Cheever’s. If you ever visit OKC, I highly recommend it!  I am so excited to celebrate this holiday that is important to my Christian faith. I’m hoping that my hubby gets done with his weekend rounds early. You never know with his medical school schedule.

This weekend, I took Friday off. It was seriously much needed to have an extra day off. My mom and I went shopping at North Park Mall in Dallas and we went to lunch at The Neiman Marcus Mermaid Bar, as is our tradition. I didn’t buy a whole lot, but it’s always fun to look! After a quick stop in Dallas, we woke up early and headed to Lake LBJ in Austin for my beautiful cousin’s couple’s shower. I am so excited that my baby cousin is getting married. Unfortunately, my hubby couldn’t come down (go figure). He had to work on Saturday for his pediatric rotation. It is hard to go to things like couple’s showers or parties without your man, but it’s the sacrifice we have made to ensure a successful future (with much more free time at that point!).

Since Easter is around the corner, I wanted to share what I will most likely be wearing. I bought this dress at SheIn and am obsessed with it. This dress can go from a wedding to Easter Sunday. I will be wearing a little navy trench coat on Sunday, since it looks like it might be chilly. For Easter, I would accessorize with different earrings, since these are more for a night look.

IMG_1051IMG_8549

This lace dress is gorgeous, so I wanted to let it be the focal point. I wore my hair half up to show off some gorgeous earrings and wore my favorite rock stud heels. They’re not Valentino’s, although I get asked that all the time. They’re great dupes! I accessorized with my favorite little bag.

What are you wearing for Easter?

Blushing In Cold Shoulders

IMG_1104IMG_1096IMG_7766

IMG_1102Happy Monday and happy April, everyone! This weekend was MUCH needed. On Friday, I felt like I barely made it through the day because I was stressed and exhausted from work and keeping up with blogging/Instagram.

After work, I met up with a local Instablogger, Candace. We took pictures of each other in the downtown area and it was really fun. Our husbands are both over taking pictures of us, so it was perfect.

IMG_7764IMG_1103

On Saturday I woke up with a horrible migraine. I am so thankful to have a husband who is almost a doctor, as he was able to get me back to normal fast. He thinks it was a stress let-down migraine. I decided to get super organized and clean the house, so hopefully I won’t get so stressed next week. Later in the evening, we had friends in town, and we went to dinner and went out after. On Sunday, I slept in and then in the afternoon met two local bloggers for brunch and shopping at Nordstrom Rack. It was so much fun!

IMG_1095

One of my favorite trends this year is cold shoulders. While they don’t work for all situations such as at the office, they are so fun for the weekend. I got this dress at Target and I think it’s absolutely gorgeous. When she saw it, my mom was surprised the dress was from Target

This dress is flowy and very romantic. The dress was already a statement, so I paired it with some simple bow heels and simple jewelry.

Chambray And Bell Sleeves

IMG_1079

IMG_1074Happy Friday! This week has gone by decently fast, but I am so ready for the weekend.  I feel like I NEED this weekend, so I can get super organized. Work has been really busy, so I’ve been a little overwhelmed with that.

My husband is finishing off week 1 out of 6 on his pediatrics rotation. It doesn’t seem like this is the most intense rotation, but it is definitely different than being on electives. We both have been really tired, so sleeping in will be a must. This weekend we have my husband’s best friend and his sweet girlfriend coming in town on Saturday, so that will be nice.

IMG_1075IMG_1076

As you probably can tell, bell sleeves are one of my favorite things. If/when they go out of style, I will be that girl still wearing them! When I saw this dress online, I knew I had to have it. It combines two of my favorite things: chambray and bell sleeves. Chambray is one of those things that is almost always in and is classic for spring. It is so lightweight and effortless.

IMG_1073IMG_1078IMG_1076

When I received this dress, I knew my new wedges would be the perfect casual touch to go with it. I decided to wear a statement necklace since the dress is pretty simple. This dress is very versatile. You can pair it with the shoes I did for a date night look, or you could also do flats for a casual running around town look. You could also do boots and tights for fall.

Dressing For A Rehearsal Dinner

IMG_7104IMG_1008

Happy Friday! I am so glad it’s the almost the weekend. This time last week, we were heading down to Dallas for a fun wedding weekend. Although it was amazing, we’re so excited to spend time at home.

Jake is in between rotations this weekend and will be starting Pediatrics on Monday. We will be taking advantage of him being free over the weekend, since free weekends will soon be rare again. He has had a full month of elective rotations, so we got a little spoiled with no weekend work. The weather looks nice tomorrow, so that always makes the weekend more fun. We don’t have any set plans, but I know we will do a date of some sort.

IMG_1009IMG_1007

I am meeting up with a blogger to start taking pictures together. I am also hoping to organize my closet and move the winter clothes to the top rack. My poor husband is getting exhausted being an Instagram husband taking most of my pictures, so I am working with other bloggers to take pictures of each other.  I’m excited to start working with them!IMG_7095

Now that it’s wedding season, you might be invited to a rehearsal dinner if you’re in the wedding party or are a close family member of the bride or groom. Most rehearsal dinners are not formal; they’re usually more cocktail attire. I determine what I am going to wear by the location of the dinner and I used the invitation as a guide.

IMG_7103

The one we recently went to was at a brewery. I was not really sure what to expect, so I played it safe with a little black dress. My rule of thumb is, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. I wanted to still look trendy, so I wore a cold shoulder dress. One of my favorite things about LBD’s is they’re like a blank canvas. I wanted to have fun with this look, so I wore a statement necklace, leopard pumps and my new pink bag.

What is everyone doing this weekend?

Dressing Up Jeans

 

IMG_0996IMG_6635IMG_7320

Hey everyone! We’re finally halfway to the weekend. This week has been way better than last, since I’m organized and have been sleeping better. Work has still been stressful though since we’re currently undergoing a lot of change. We are also busy, so I am trying to keep up.

IMG_1005

Jake is on the last week of his elective rotations and has really seemed to enjoy them. I cannot tell you how ready I am for him to find out what he matched into. Luckily he will find out in less than a year (March 16,2018). I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! I am hoping it goes by fast. He starts a new rotation on Monday, so I am taking advantage of our time together. I know he will be super busy soon.

It is officially spring as of Monday and we’ve had beautiful weather lately. I’ve had fun dressing for spring. One thing I cannot get enough of lately is my white jeans. I got a new pair at the beginning of the season and they’re my favorites.  I picked up this gorgeous cold shoulder ruffle blouse at Target and have loved it. It is perfect for a date night.

I am all about dressing up, but sometimes it’s nice to just wear jeans, especially when the weather is chilly. I decided to pair this look with these gorgeous chandelier earrings to dress up this look. Statement earrings and heels are always a great way to dress up jeans. It seems like accessories are what make all the difference.

Happy Wednesday! This week is starting to look up, since we are halfway to the weekend. So far, being very organized has helped this week not be so chaotic. I have been busy with work and blogging, but it has been much more manageable.

IMG_5981IMG_5982

The weather is a little chilly here still, so I have found leather jackets to be a go-to piece lately. When putting this look together, I couldn’t really decide what to wear. Leopard is a neutral to me and pink is my favorite color, so that’s where I got my inspiration.

IMG_5985IMG_0626

One thing I’m loving lately is mixing a classic dress with an edgy piece, such as a leather jacket. I paired a classic A line dress with with this jacket and added a pop of pink to give it a little color. To make this look a little trendy, I wore lace up shoes.

Also, I don’t know if you noticed, but I FINALLY have a logo. Please let me know what you think!
