‘Tis the season to be busy! Already wishing I could transport back to the Keys. Has it only been a week?! This beautiful sarong is only $20 and can be worn as a skirt or a dress. It took me from a chic beach 🏖 club in Dubai to the relaxed resort style of the Florida Keys where the hair frizz is for real.

One of these days we’ll take professional photos for our Christmas 🎄 card, but today is not one of those days. Feeling very accomplished that I got our cards ordered today, and racked up the coupon codes like a boss. 😎 Ended up using photos from our family trips this year, and this one from our Thanksgiving trip to the Florida Keys is the centerpiece. Who am I kidding the cutie in the festive Minnie dress is always the centerpiece. ❤️

Happy Thanksgiving-Eve 🦃🍁 I’m looking forward to all the food, holiday specials, family time and of course online shopping. I plan on doing it all from my couch in comfy clothes, and am excited @express has already started their Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Everything I’m wearing here is 40% off 🤩 including these jeans. Swipe ⬅️ to see more of my fav pieces all on sale, and happy shopping! 

SO much to be thankful for this year, 🙏🏼 and I’ve been enjoying teaching Lil’ Miss what the holiday is all about and hearing what she’s most thankful for.

Kick the dust up ✨ Still swooning at the thought of experiencing a Dubai Desert 🏜 sunset, but even more so to be home in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family, 🙏🏼 and celebrate one of my best girls this weekend. 

#LTKtravel #LTKHoliday
I usually end up staying in comfy clothes to enjoy all the food for Thanksgiving, but if you plan on jazzing it up a bit this rhinestone ✨ strap cami from @express is holiday perfection. It’ll definitely be making lots of appearances throughout all the festive 🎄 fun in December. If you live in a cooler climate - just add a blazer.

The beach is always good for the soul, especially in Brazil. 🇧🇷 Wrapped up another whirlwind work event, and we celebrated with dinner on the beach. Not too shabby! Counting down the days until I’m reunited with my little fam. 💙

#LTKbrasil #LTKtravel
Squeezed in a quick date night before heading back out on another back-to-back work trip. ✈️  Any guesses where I’m heading next? Hint: It’s 2 different continents again. 

Head over to the blog to see how I re-styled this super cozy twist front reversible sweater for dinner and drinks out with my forever plus 1. 🥰

The art of the mimosa 🥂🍊 That’s all I’ve got! Day date + bubbles = 💛

It’s officially the season for long sleeves paired with shorts… well not quite in Florida. It’s been warmer than usual, but looks like it’ll cool off soon. This knotted sweater from @express will be on repeat, and I love how the twist detailing is reversible and  can be worn in the front or the back. 🎀

Real talk ~ the past two weeks were HARD. This app is our highlight reel, so what you see are the amazing travels, food - ooooh the food, views, etc… what you don’t see are all the tears shed when leaving for the airport or FaceTiming with my little fam. I LOVE what I do, and am privileged to be able to travel around the world 🗺 while doing it. I’m blessed with lots of fun co-workers, but they are also leaving their families behind and working long hours while jet lagged and stressed. It’s hard guys… really hard. We went to Venice, Italy then straight to Panamá from there for another week. Both events went great, and it went by fast but man did I miss my husband and my little Princess. Thankful 🙏🏼 to be home in time to celebrate her birthday - she’s going to be FIVE. Not quite sure how that happened already, but here we are. Celebrations begin tomorrow, and will go all weekend just because 💕

#LTKtravel #LTKeurope
The only thing more amazing than this picturesque cathedral in Venice was the food. Still thinking about the best lasagna EVER! 🥰 Always here for the food in Italia! 

#LTKeurope #LTKtravel
Whatever floats your gondola - for me it’s been the pasta 🍝 and tiramisu. Work trip number ✌🏼 is about to get crazy busy, but I’m thankful for the time I was able to explore and eat. Did I mention the pasta yet? 

#LTKeurope #LTKtravel
Squeezed in a quick date night amidst all the travel this season. We took advantage of #MagicalDining to check out a new-to-us steakhouse so I dressed up for the occasion. We popped over to an outdoor bar after where I felt overdressed, and then remembered there’s no such thing! Are you also team it’s better to be overdressed than under? 

#LTKshoecrush #LTKstyletip
The rain the past few days had me reaching for this dress from @express for it’s fun balloon sleeves, and the paisley print brought the sunshine ☀️. I’m not quite ready to embrace fall as my motto is long live summer, but am slowly letting go with beautiful pieces like this 💙 Now I just need Mr. Sun to come back out and play!

There’s no place like home 🏡 After wrapping our 1st in-person event in almost 2 years I ventured over to the dazzling ✨ Chandelier Bar in the Cosmopolitan for the 2nd time that week. Where else can you enjoy picturesque cocktails inside a giant chandelier? Less than 2 hours of sleep later it was time to head to the airport… totally worth it and so happy to be home and caught up on sleep. 

#LTKtravel
Currently en route ✈️  to our first event in almost 2 years, and dreaming of the mimosas from last weekend. My mind and my heart have needed a break the past few weeks, and will have super stressful days while working on location. How are YOU doing? Know that it’s ok to not be ok right now. Take a break, read that book, drink that glass of wine, pause for a few moments to reflect in prayer, and count your blessings. 🙏🏼 Hoping to share some of the fun moments this week, and will be popping into Stories and perhaps even a Live if I feel crazy enough!
When you shop your closet for the perfect dress to celebrate two of your fav’s birthdays. 🎂 Wore this floral OTS maxi in the Bahamas, and was excited to pull it back out for the framily festivities.

Guys I did it - I finally tried out a pair of boyfriend jeans. My millennial skinny jeans loving heart chose a pair from @express that wasn’t super baggy in the waist and cuffed at the bottom so they pair well with heels, sandals or a comfy pair of sneaks 👟.  I took them for a spin the other night for dinner, and got two thumbs up from
Lil’ Miss the ultimate critic - ha! Have you tried a pair yet? #ExpressPartner #ExpressYou #August2021 

#LTKstyletip
Still feeling all the birthday 💖 and received the best compliment from Lil’ Miss when she saw the dress I picked for the weekend festivities. “Wowwww mommy I love that pretty dress!” Heart officially melted plus it kept me cool in the summer heat. Win-win! 

#LTKstyletip
When the rain moved in on date night, we hunkered down at the cutest tiki bar 🍹 which transported us to the shores of Hawaii. It’s looking like a lot of rain again this weekend, may need another pick-me-up! 

#LTKunder50
All the pretty details for the weekend ✨ I had to remind myself (happily) that today is in fact Friday. Hoping to melt some stress away over the weekend in the pool and a much needed date night where I’ll break back out some of these pretties. 

#LTKitbag #LTKunder50
Sees floral wall at the beach, and stops for a quick photo. We checked out a new-to-us beach 🏖 over the weekend that had cinnamon looking sand, enjoyed lunch with water views, and of course stopped for ice cream before heading home. The sweetest way to end the day. 

#LTKswim
Luxe comfort, but make it blue 💙 We all donned our best blues this weekend, and I reached for this @express ruched one-shoulder bodysuit for the occasion. Perfect for the summer heat and the celebration of a beautiful friend. 🙏🏼#ExpressPartner #ExpressYou #July2021

What’s a trend that took you a while to get on board with? For me it was biker shorts 🚴 I’m glad I finally came around because they’re insanely comfy and perfect for working out, lounging at home or out running errands and grabbing ☕️. I chose the @aikka.activewear Lula Biker Shorts in Ultimate Gray, and love that they’re from a women owned small business that uses high quality fabric and has affordable prices.

Let your dreams set sail ⛵️ Another gorgeous floral wall at @thehamptonsocial was the inspiration We all need especially on a Tuesday. 🌸 #LTKshoecrush #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/3jEDo
My heart is officially full after celebrating not 1 but 2 birthdays which we skipped last year for obvious reasons. It was SO good for the soul to gather over good food, drinks, and much needed catching up. Happy birthday 🎈🎂 #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/3jtn0
This week has been heavy. Looking forward to the sun shining again, and mentally I’m transporting myself back to the Bahamas. Just add 🍹 #LTKswim #LTKtravel #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/3jhjD
Raise your hand 🙋🏻‍♀️ if you’re tired of getting tangled in wires when working out or trying to relax on a plane. These @sudio ear buds have been a game changer for my time on the elliptical and the peloton bike, and look how pretty! Of course I went with the sparkling sand color. 🤩 If you haven't pulled the trigger on wireless ear buds yet like me, it may be hard to figure out which ones will fit you best. The Nio model is affordable at only $89, and are best for exercising. While the Ett earbuds are better for noisy environments with active noise canceling and a complete seal of your ear.

When a sign is basically calling you over to take a picture. Finally checked out the new @thehamptonsocial ⚓️ and can’t wait to go back! The whole place is simply beautiful from the decor to the drinks to even the floral 🌸 walls perfect for photo opps. I coincidentally wore my own florals as well, and loved this OTS top for date night. #ExpressPartner #LTKshoecrush #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/3j4wA
‘Tis the season to glow ✨ I’m adding to that summer sun 🌞😘 kissed glow with my newfound love of @maeloveskincare Their Glow Maker Serum is hands down my favorite and it’s packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid, and Hyaluronic Acid which gives you that long lasting hydration our skin is craving after all the beach and pool days. I’ve always had sensitive skin, and immediately noticed that it felt softer. And that glow - LOVE! #LTKbeauty #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/3iMHB
