Weekend Sales

I hope you all are having a wonderful 4th of July so far!  There are quite a few notable sales happening this weekend so I just wanted to share a few picks with you all!

J.Crew Factory - 50% off everything + free ship (Friday only) w/ code HOTSALE

jcrew factory july 4 sale picks

J.Crew Factory is having 50% off everything with code HOTSALE!  If you're shopping today (Friday), they're even offering free shipping!  I noticed the fruit salad tank a couple weeks ago (see picture on the right below) and absolutely love the bright colors and the casual look when paired with a pair of shorts.  I also bought the octopus tee awhile ago as I seriously live in tees when I'm just hanging out with the fam.  It can easily be dressed up though by pairing it with a skirt and heels (like I posted on my IG on the left pic below).  The nude patent bow flats are also one of my favorites that I own and I would highly recommend!  And finally, pom poms are all the rage right now and this top could not be any cuter, especially with the embroidery detailing (and there's even a maxi dress version too!).

BaubleBar - 30% off + free shipping with code 4JULY

BaubleBar is probably my favorite place to shop for accessories and it's 30% off everything sitewide with free shipping!  I'm on a tassel kick right now so you can tell that the majority of what I picked out have tassels on it.  I ended up buying for myself the tassel earrings in coral, the moon pave necklace (I can see it looking beautiful with v-neck tops and dresses), as well as these sunshower fringe earrings.  

Other sales:

Happy shopping!  Let me know what your favorite items are and what you're picking up this weekend!

The long 4th of July weekend is finally here!  I've been really getting into cowboy boots again and loved how it turned this feminine floral dress into something with a little country flair!  I picked up this dress from Pink Blush and am absolutely in love with it!  The handkerchief hem is so flattering and there are tie straps that hold the dress up at the shoulders and can be adjusted for the perfect fit.  The bold red and white colors are also perfect for ringing in the 4th of July and while I didn't have any blue, it would look perfect with these royal blue drop earrings or this cute tasseled beach tote

Silky Smooth :: Tria At-Home Laser Hair Removal Review

cute & little blog | tria laser hair removal 4x review

Summer is here and the hot weather has already settled in for good here in Dallas!  Leg-baring shorts and dresses are in regular rotation and we've hit up the pool already this season!  Having lived in Texas all my life, I actually love warm weather but I'll admit that having to constantly shave is always a bit of a nuisance.  And if we're being honest, showering has become a luxury these days now that I've got both a baby and a toddler to take care of that the last thing I want to do is shave!  Add on to the fact that I've also always had an issue with ingrown hairs whenever I shave and it just makes the end result of shaving even less pleasant.  

I first heard about the Tria laser hair removal device when InStyle magazine named it a "Best Beauty Buy" in 2014.  It's a handheld device that actually lets you perform laser hair removal in the comfort of your own home!  The results are permanent and the device actually uses the same diode laser technology that you find in professional doctors' offices.  Knowing that it's is also the only FDA-cleared laser available for home use, I also felt safe using it and not risking burning my skin.

Blue / White Vintage Print + Distressed Jeans

Enter my weekly On Trend Tuesdays Linkup!

Dress (worn as top): SheIn Vintage Dress c/o - wearing S
Jeans: J.Brand Distressed White Skinny Jeans
Shoes: Jessica Simpson 'Allyn' Espadrilles - only $79 w/ code FOURTH (similar - on sale!)
Bag: Tory Burch Mini Robinson (similar for less)
Earrings: Ann Taylor (old, super similar, similar)
Watch: Citizen Crystal Silhouette c/o
Sunglasses: Karen Walker 'Super Duper'

I've been loving the combination of white and blue lately and find that it's such a classic look for the summertime!  I love the print of this tunic and for some reason, it actually reminds me of the blue and white homes I see in pictures from Santorini, Greece (on my bucket list of places to visit someday!).  

This top is actually designed to be a dress but I found it to be much too short even on me (I'm only 5' tall).  It was perfect worn as a tunic and still just as chic when paired with white jeans!  The dress is nicely fitted yet not too clingy -- perfect for looking chic and enjoying a tasty meal without feeling self conscious!

A few of you guys have also asked me for a good pair of white skinny jeans.  These by J. Brand are my absolute favorite as they're thick enough to not be see through and are actually a crop length which make them a perfect full length if you have shorter legs like me!  There is only light distressing which gives them a broken-in look without looking too torn up and it actually hits me correctly on the knees!  I've also linked up a few more distressed white jean options below:

Sandy and I are teaming up again for another On Trend Tuesday!  I got this dress in the mail last week and it was love at first sight!  From the floral print and the delicate accordion pleats to the feminine sweetheart neckline, this dress makes for the perfect summer outfit -- whether it's dressed up with heels for a wedding or dressed down with sandals for a casual day spent outdoors.  

This was my first time ordering from Ami Clubwear and while I had browsed their site years ago when I first heard of them, I was turned off by the clothes that seemed too risque and revealing for my taste.  When I was recently contacted by the company, I decided to take another look and was pleasantly surprised to find this classy and beautiful dress (along with this one that I ordered)!  I'm wearing a size S and was happy to find that it fit perfectly without any alterations.  The bodice is lightly structured and I actually appreciated that it helped to kinda "hold" everything in.  The bust is also lightly padded with foam but I ended up removing the padding as I felt like it made me look a little too busty.  #breastfeedingproblems  

Everything on Ami Clubwear right now is currently 50% off (code: USA50) so definitely take advantage of this sale to try out this site if you haven't before!

And if you're on the hunt for floral strapless dresses, here are a few other options:
