Tassels are one of my obsessions this season and I just can't seem to get enough!  I just love these shorts with the tassel fringe hem and they're perfect for when I want a casual look yet still a little something to make it stand out.  As someone with more muscular thighs, I also found the rounded hem super flattering and even creates the illusion of slimmer legs -- something we all want, am I right? ;)  I'm wearing these shorts a bit higher on my natural waistline as I have short legs (the pitfalls of being only 5' tall) but I actually felt that it created a bit more of an hourglass shape and quite loved the way it looked!  

This off shoulder blouse has also become a closet favorite and it's my new go-to when I just want a simple white top (previously worn here).  And while wearing white while taking care of little kiddos doesn't always end well, this top has actually gone through the washer and dryer multiple times and come out good as new every time!

I hope you're enjoying the holiday weekend so far!  I wanted to pop in for a quick review of a dress that I received a few weeks ago from a new-to-me site called Lalalilo.  I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on the website as the rose print looked gorgeous and the dress shape looked elegant and classic (with sleeves too!).  Unfortunately, when I received it I was a bit dismayed that the dress didn't look or fit anything like how it was shown online -- to me the rose print in person didn't look like rose print at all and even after sizing up to a medium, the dress was short.  I wore it to a quick dinner last weekend and it actually would do a little creep up whenever I walked and so I ended up having to pull it down every few steps!  Ordering from Asian websites can sometimes be hit or miss and sadly Lalalilo was a miss for me.

In case you are looking for a red floral dress though, here are a few that look lovely (actually loving this maxi option!):

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 july 4 sale picks

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:

And in non-sale news, I also picked up this highlight from Sephora.  I'm a HUGE fan of Jaclyn Hill on YouTube (check out her videos if you haven't already!) and while this product actually sold out on launch day (Thursday, July 2), it's now fully restocked!

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.
