WhitneyxLot 2029xExciting News

Ahh you guys, you guys. I am so excited to share these photos with you. I have teamed up with Jordan (check out her IG...she's amazing) to shoot this collaboration with Lot 2029 (one of my favorite places to shop).

As a blogger one of the best feelings is finding a photographer that you work well with, that just "gets" you, your style, and captures the movement. She passes the test!

Lot 2029, oh this store. It's full of pure happiness!! I dare you to go in here and not want to buy's tough. They also have a brand new sister store, Onyx and Pearl, I'm equally obsessed. They'll also be hitting the blog/IG soon. 

BIG ANNOUCEMENT (drum roll please)...I have a new blog in the works, you guys, STAY TUNED!

Back n' Bright

Where have I been? Well to be honest, busy...but that's not an excuse. It has been a hot second since I last had an actual post, but to be totally honest with you I've been uninspired in my writing and I don't believe in putting content out just to "post". I feel that I owe you, as my readers, my all, every. single. time!! And so, to answer the "where have I been"...I've been uninspired, probably because life has been complete chaos, but here I am. Back at it, and hopefully with a bang!

So let's get back into it...

If you follow me on Insta you're aware that I'm now part of the  fam! I couldn't be more excited, for me and for you! This makes shopping SOOO easy for you, you guys! You just need to download the app and simply screenshot my photo(s) then head to the app and my look is right there for you to shop...seriously, how freakin' cool is that? If the item isn't available I do my best to link something similar. 

What I sit here and think there's actually A LOT! So now comes the word vomit, I'll make a list... if you follow I give you props, if you scroll strictly to the photos that's cool too... I also get antsy to see what Bobby does.

1.) As per my IG story, most of you were probably aware that I was running the half marathon in Fargo, ND. I completed that and feel great having that off my plate. It honestly became stressful. But, I have already told myself I'm doing it again next year...I know, I'm crazy.

2.) I was officially offered a position as a brand ambassador for Lot 2029 - have you been there? One of my favorite local boutiques. They've hit my Insta & will be on here soon too...stay tuned!

3.) I've been to blogger meet ups & connected with other bloggers, this has become one of my favorite things about blogging! Meeting all the amazing women doing the same thing! 

4.) With every day it seems there is new surprises, new apps, and new technology. With this means new opportunities, new brands, and new things to try. As you follow along you will get to see new brands, new fashion and new trends. Again, stay tuned! 

5.) There is also an amazing man in my life, you'll be seeing more of him too.

As you can see, life has changed, been crazy, and full of surprises. But honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. I thank you for your continued support, sweet messages, comments and emails.

Now, the photos! Enjoy!

Summer (not so) Secret

I feel like all I'm wearing lately is white, but honestly I have zero problems with it. It's totally my go to color, I feel like I've said this before...most likely more than once, but I just said it again. White is my fav! Especially when warm weather hits.  Pink is probably a close runner up as of lately, though. Which is so weird considering color has never been a thing for's funny how our style evolves.

Anyways...I love the laid back/dressed up look, I think this is typically how I tend to dress. Very rarely will you see me wondering around (teetering?) in stilettos and a dress. Does it happen? Yes, but rarely. I'm still trying to figure out those women that wear stilettos regularly, I mean I have mad respect for that. I just cannot feet get sore and I end up barefoot. 

These pants are so comfy, and the lace adds a feminine detail to the otherwise masculine look. 

And...this jacket, you guys!! I'm obsessed with it. JNS does awesome things, check them out here. And a personalized jacket? Seriously, the coolest! You won't regret it, I promise.

PHAM life

Social media, such a large sea of; inspiration, confusion, people, travel, ideas, brands and products...the list could go on forever. Through blogging I'm learning (or trying to) the ins and outs, just call me "Nemo". Some platforms I've never even heard of, some I want nothing to do with, and others are completely my jam. 

In other words, it's kind of like dating...I think that's a fair analogy. And I think Instagram has become "the one" for me. I have met so many amazing bloggers through Insta, and yes, we are on a nickname basis. I feel like I owe my life to that app, because I wouldn't be where I am right now in ALL aspects of my life if it weren't for Insta, weird right?

If you're not aware, there's an option to DM (direct message) on there. Some people get this, some don't, so I'm trying to do my best to explain. Anyways...DM is how a lot of bloggers connect with other bloggers, and how bloggers connect with brands.

P.H.A.M ... the moment I landed on their Instagram I loved their feed, I browsed their entire page, which then lead me to their website. They are about living life freely, pride themselves on quality, and don't just work with anyone. ALL things that I stand for, the relationship was just meant to be.

Another relationship that was meant to, hats, and overalls. I just think a hat does so much for any outfit, and it hides my hair that hasn't been washed for a solid week. So all in all, it's a great thing.

VB x Target Collection

I do my best to try to live in the now. But, I think it's also important to have those things in the future that give you something to look forward to, too. These things definitely help me get through the mundane. Not that my life is mundane by any means, but we all have those days. At least I think we do? As with anything in life, balance is key! 

I'm about to get real honest with you and admit I'm working to find my balance. I feel at times as though I have so much going on in my head I get lost in my own thoughts, and my to do's that I'm not fully present. I hate myself for this! My lifestyle has become so "go"....there are days I feel like I can't catch my breath. I get so consumed in "to do's" that I've forgotten important things, and it's embarrassing to admit all of this. I've realized lately that I busy myself to a fault and will fully admit balance is something I struggle with. So, my question to you is, how do you slow down? I need tips, you guys!

Anyways, back to looking forward to things... The Victoria BeckhamxTarget Collection was on my calendar last fall, I'm pathetic, I know. She is one of my absolute favorites when it comes to fashion, to me she's an icon. When I heard she was collaborating with Target my eyes probably popped out of my head. And, she didn't disappoint either. I saw these pink pants online before the collection dropped and I needed them. Needed them! I also got a few other items too, but I needed to blog about these immediately. I paired this white lace top and it just felt like if the weather would cooperate we'd be set.

Summer Staples

In my mind nothing screams Summer more than white and denim. It's such a classic go to that can be worn in so many ways. A white top with jeans always seems to be something I reach for if I don't feel like thinking too much about my outfit...I guess now you'll know the mornings I over sleep, or just feel lazy. We're entitled to those once in a while though, right?

This post took my basic white and denim to another level, but I absolutely love it. Not to mention the entire look is under $60. The details of this skirt immediately caught my eye, and I knew the options with it were endless. So, no brainer. And this shirt, I absolutely love the details of it. I mean, how can you not? 

Zara + Target, my two favorites have officially collided! How did this take so long? Well either way, I'm smitten this happened.
