ARCHIVE: travel


Hey guys and happy Tuesday! Today’s post is all about what I wore down to Dallas this past weekend! I went courtesy of Mary Kay,  to learn more about the brand, visit their headquarters and attend the 50th Anniversary of the ACM awards! (They were one of the official sponsors.)

For those of you that follow me on YouTube (you can subscribe here!) I made a packing video last week, which shared everything I brought with me on this trip, and I mentioned I was going to share the outfits I wore. I didn’t get as much footage as I wanted because the trip was such a whirlwind and we got caught in a tornado watch!!! But at least I was able to document (both on video and in photographs) two different looks, one of which I wore to the awards ceremony!


I wore this dress by Donna Morgan to the ACM red carpet and awards ceremony. My earrings are from Bauble Bar, my shoes are from Schutz and my bag is from UGG. Luis Casco from Project Runway did my makeup and the lovely girls from Era Salon styled my hair! They did such an amazing job, I felt so glamorous! :)


I have owned this gorgeous silk shift dress, which was a gift from Calypso, for months now but it has just been too darn cold to wear it! So I was over the moon that I finally was able to in Dallas this past weekend. I wore this look to my meeting at the Mary Kay offices and then to lunch afterwards.

You can purchase the dress here!

(Side note: Make sure to wear a slip underneath this silky white sheath because it’s pretty see through!)









These are my vintage cowboy boots! I’ve owned them forever but never really wear them.

I think I need a sleek black pair. Wouldn’t those look amazing with black ripped jeans and a leather jacket? Yesss. If you guys know of a great place to buy vintage boots, let me know!

Hi guys! Today is a very special day because it’s my Dad’s BIRTHDAY! We are celebrating by spending some time as a family on Orcas Island, one of our very favorite Pacific Northwest getaway spots and soaking up every minute of it. I decided to try and capture the beauty of this place by making a little video for you guys, so if you would like to see, hop on over to my channel (have you subscribed yet?!) to take a look. xoxo


Spending the next two nights at the Outlook Inn.

I’m wearing Karen Walker sunglasses, J.Crew cashmere scarf (this is on sale plus an extra 30 percent off!) and denim shirt (currently 25 percent off with the code SPRINGSALE), Frame jeans and Rag & Bone booties. My suitcase was a gift from Hartmann Luggage. It has been the perfect travel companion. :)


Totally in heaven here…

This past Sunday, we took a little day trip to Tarifa, to celebrate our friend Jami’s Birthday. It was about a two hour drive from Malaga, so we got up bright and early to beat the crowds and spent some quiet time on one of the nearby beaches. We soaked up the sun, applied massive amounts of sunscreen, ate more tapas and sipped cold beers. After a few hours, we drove back into the old part of town, which was just beautiful. The streets are narrow and winding and the views surrounding the town are incredible. It’s one of the ports where you can catch a ferry to Africa, which is also pretty neat.

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…





The keyhole-shaped entrance to the old and original part of town, which was settled in 1292!


This whole trip, I let my hair air-dry, constantly wore my sunglasses (but that’s nothing new) and wore no makeup, except for the occasional swipe of mascara and a peachy lip color. I lived in my bathing suit and constantly had sand in my hair, but it felt pretty great to just be au natural and not worry about anything else. Sunday was no different for the most part, but I knew Tarifa was a special place and we were celebrating so I felt like slipping on something a little more dressy than just my usual shorts and tee. I had packed this dress hoping to wear it at least once, and it turned out to be the perfect piece to slip on to enjoy the second half of our day. I definitely had beach hair, which was still drying in these photos, so I wore my new favorite Panama hat and a bright lip for a pop of color.




Fresh nuts and coconut slices!













Thanks for following along over the past week and a half while I’ve been away in Spain – it’s been so fun to share these photos with you on the blog as well as Instagram. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have! xo

Saturday, Andi and I took the train into the city of Malaga and did a little exploring. We visited the big market there, where I bought some great spices, and we sampled some of the local fare at one of the tapas stands. We made the obligatory trip to Zara, where I picked up a few things, and then we sat and chatted over more tapas and wine. Here in Spain, it is expected to sit down every few hours, eat a tapa or two, drink a glass of wine and chat before heading back out again. Oh, and naps. Naps are big here. I’m a big fan of that part – well everything, really. All and all, the day was a success, and I loved having some catch up time with this one. She’s pretty great. :) xo

My dear friend, Andi and I have a girlie moment on the beach. Thank you, Casey, for taking these photos, for having patience and always finding the humor in things. Love you. xo


Hola from Spain! How was everyone’s weekend? Ours was pretty fantastic. We spent time on various beaches in Benalmadena and Tarifa, explored nearby towns, and indulged in more than our fair share of tapas and vino blanco. I can’t believe how fast this trip has flown by and that it’s already Monday. We head out Wednesday morning, so today and tomorrow will be spent reading on our local beach, taking nap breaks and sampling more of the amazing food this country has to offer. I have to say, being from Seattle, where fish is very fresh and abundant, I can be somewhat snobby about my seafood. But the amount of fresh shrimp, prawns, mussels and clams we’ve experienced so far is pretty impressive. I really love it here. xo



Hey you guys!  I’m still in Spain and enjoying every second. I have been taking pictures like crazy and am planning on doing a round up of everything soon, but wanted to pop up a few photos from yesterday of the homemade paella our Spanish friends made for us. It was amazing – packed with mussels, prawns, calamari, clams and pieces of fish. It really was a treat to have it prepared specially for us and with a homemade recipe that has been been passed down through generations.



Can you believe we’ve already been here for almost a week? We fly back on Wednesday, which seems to be approaching way too quickly, so instead I’m not going to think about it and instead live in the moment and really enjoy the rest of my time here. I hope you all have a fantastic Friday and keep following me on Instagram, where I will be posting more photos throughout the weekend. Love to you all! xo

P.S. My jumpsuit is from Forever 21 and my sunglasses are by Saint Laurent.



Hello and happy Monday! I know I usually put up an “Over the Weekend” post on Mondays, but this weekend was spent packing and getting ready for our trip to Spain, so there wasn’t anything too interesting to photograph. Instead, I want to share these two photos of Malaga, taken by my friend Andi, who is living there for the summer, and who we will be staying with for the next ten days! I can’t wait to spend time at the beach, eat good food and explore this beautiful little beach town.

Hi y’all! (Yes, I am feeling very southern right now.) So, we’ve been in Nashville only a day and have already experienced great food and drinks at The Farm House, The Southern, Patterson House and Rolf & Daughters. Needless to say, it was a fantastic introduction into the bar and restaurant scene. It was a scorcher yesterday so this flowy maxi was a perfect choice for the 90-degree weather we were experiencing.





Today, we are hoping to check out Edgehill Cafe and the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, then eat dinner and maybe  go bowling at Pinewood Social. Afterward, I am hoping to hear some live music at either the Listening Room or The Bluebird Cafe. I can’t wait and hope to get some great photos this weekend.xo
