Striped Two Piece Set

Back from Aspen and back to going 1000 mph. We had the absolute best weekend away, though. There is really nothing I love more than a weekend getaway with friends. So good for the soul! Aspen was absolutely beautiful, too. I know it's known for the skiing, but I much prefer it in the summer. The weather is so perfect and the lush flowers are so dreamy! They were getting set up for Aspen Food and Wine, and it was so fun to reminisce about our experience there, last year.

Last week I shared our trip to San Diego and promised I would share the outfit deets on this photo, in a different blog post, so....here we are.

I am living for this striped two piece set, you guys. It's fun for all occasions but would a totally chic option for the upcoming Fourth of July, holiday. It's only $20, fits true to size and comes in blue, too.

Also new to my closet are these tan mules. I absolutely love mules and wore my old pair out so much that I had to toss them last year. I was so happy to find another pair that goes with everything. I know I will be getting my pay-per-wear out of these - and I think I already have!

A lot of you asked about this bag, on Instagram. This exact one is from Zara, but I linked to a SUPER similar version from Sole Society, below.





Tower23: The Best Luxury Hotel In Pacific Beach San Diego

I love going to San Diego. I spent a lot of my teen years there and there is a certain familiarity to it, that makes it feel comforting whenever I visit. Specifically we would go to Pacific Beach. There are so many wonderful areas to see and visit in San Diego, but I always make Pacific Beach my homebase, for the access to the beach and the laid back atmosphere. Still, a lot has changed since my teen years, and sleeping 10 to an outdated and dingy room is no longer an option for this 30 something. One of the biggest downfalls of Pacific Beach for me, is that it's lacked the kind of hotels that I Brandon and I have grown accustomed to staying in, that are chic and modern and offer all the modern luxuries. That's when I found Tower23 - which is THE BEST luxury hotel in Pacific Beach, San Diego!

Everything at Tower23 is done to perfection! We obviously love the modern design, but the hotel staff is so friendly and welcoming, and made us feel right at home. They even greeted us with a cocktail, upon arrival! So fun! (My kind of place!) The hotel also provides beach towels and beach cruisers, so you don't have to pack anything extra or spend money on rentals, which is so nice!

It's funny because the weather was actually kind of cold while we were in San Diego, so we didn't have much beach time. It was so nice to be able to have a home base at Tower23 to hang out at, and relax, and actually not even really want to leave. This was a total R&R trip for us, with no grand plans to sightsee or do all the things, and I can honestly say we found just that - in large part thanks to Tower23. We even skipped out on the night life and hung out by the fire on the tower deck and played Uno. So random, but some QT that was so needed!

We had lunch and Rose (obvi) at the Tower23's restaurant JRDN - which I hear from the locals it he perfect place to watch the sunset! (Darn weather wasn't cooperating with us though!) The restaurant was fabulous and so yummy! I ordered the Asian chopped salad and Brandon was living for the crispy chicken it came with. (That says a lot if you know my picky eater!)

Boho Floral Embroidered Dress

Holy smokes guys. I started the BBG on Monday and I don't know if I am just out of shape but I can barely walk! I never expected day one to leave me so wrecked! Has anyone ever completed the program? It looks like it gives crazy results and I am so here for it! I'll be doing before and after photos, so you can see the results, but if you want to join me (and help keep each other accountable) you can check out the program here.

I ran around in this boho floral embroidered dress all weekend, and am in love! It wasn't til I went shopping that I noticed it's actually a Free People dupe - and about half the cost! (Here is the real version, if you're interested.) The dress I am wearing is a small, and I'm 5'7 - in case you are wondering about sizing/

I've been using this bag like crazy lately. I can't get enough of straw bags, this season. I also love this one from Sole Society, if you are looking for one without the tassel accent. 

I also love these $12 slide sandals I picked up from Target. They come in black, too.

Happy Wednesday!

Best Travel Size Beauty Products For Your Carry On

Happy Memorial Day! We are heading out for a quick trip to a whale's va-jay-jay, today. Yes, San Diego! (I can't help but say that Anchorman reference everytime I say San Diego! For those that have no idea what I am talking about...watch this.) 

Brandon and I have both been crazy busy lately, and desperately need some R+R and time to connect, so we chose San Diego because it's familiar and one of our favorite beach towns. I actually spent a lot of my teenage years heading to Pacific Beach. I took Brandon there for his 30th birthday, because I knew he would love it, and sure enough, he does. It just has a certain Colorado vibe to it, if that makes sense. 

Anywho, like I mentioned, this is definitely going to be a quick trip, so bringing a carry-on is a must. I needed to upgrade our carry-on game, and have had my eye on this one by Herschel for a while. Luckily, it's currently on sale for 20% off, too! When it comes to traveling, I always stock up on these travel size beauty products, whether I am packing a carry-on or not. Full size products add so much weight to your bag, and for me...that's weight I need for my shoes! These are my tried and true best travel size beauty products.

MY FAVORITE TRAVEL SIZE BEAUTY PRODUCTS


It Cosmetics CC Cream - This is my go-to summer product, in lieu of heavy foundation. I am more of a light-medium coverage kind of girl, especially in the summer months, and I love that this CC cream comes with 50 SPF - perfect for summer play. This mini is the perfect amount to take with you on vacay, without taking up too much space in your bag.

Patchology On The Fly Travel Kit - I've been a huge fan of Patchology products ever since my girl Taylor turned me onto them. (I live for their 5 minute flash masks!) Air travel totally sucks the life out of my skin, so I always do damage control after a flight. I love this travel kit by Patchology because it comes with all the things needed to whip my skin back into shape, quickly. 

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Face Wipes - I don't even know what life was before these, guys! I use them daily, prior to washing my face, but I especially love them on vacay because they do the job to get the makeup off, without having to bring along my bulky face washes.  

Dry Bar Dry Shampoo Mini - I live for dry shampoo, and Dry Bar has pretty much nailed the formula. I try to stretch my vacay blow-outs as far as possible, so bringing along dry shampoo is an absolute must! This one is the perfect size for your carry-on.

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen - You all know I'm a huge fan of Supergoop! products. They launched this Unseen Sunscreen a few months ago, and it's a hit because of its sheer formula. It's TSA size friendly, and an absolute essential to add to your summer suncare kit. If you want to read more about Supergoop! and why I am a fan of their non-toxic formula, read this.

Amika Travel Kit - If you need a well-rounded set of hair products for your vacation, this is the best set! I recently fell in love with Amika's Un-Done Texture Spray, to achieve the bedhead lob look I've been after, so I was thrilled to find this kit that has the texture spray, dry shampoo, detangling primer and nourishing mask - all in perfect travel size minis. These are definitely the products you need for a beach trip, after playing in the sand and sea.

Elevated Work Outfit: Oversized Blazer + Joggers

Ask and you shall receive! I have been getting questions to share more work appropriate outfits, that aren't dresses, but also aren't just your boring work pants and blouse. I get it. I often find myself experiencing work-wear woes, too. It's the tension of wanting to look professional, but also wanting your personal style to shine through - and sometimes your personal style isn't always work appropriate. 

I find that if you stick to one tried and true work staple, like this oversized blazer, you can have a little fun with the other pieces your incorporate in - i.e., joggers. Another simple trick is to add a statement piece to your classic work outfit, such as a colorful/printed blazer or fun shoes. Play around with the pieces in your closet and take a piece that you might wear in your off-time and try to pair it with a professional piece, to see if it goes. It's a simple way to blend your professional and off-duty sides together.

A Stunning White Eyelet Top

You guys, how is it already the end of May? I swear the months are just flying by right now. We have been extremely busy with work, which makes the days feel short and long, all at the same time. You know what I mean? Brandon and I are headed out to San Diego in a few days for some much needed R&R, and I am so freaking excited. We haven't been on a trip since October, which is C R A Z Y, for us. One of my goals was to travel less, this year. Which, I know it probably sounds crazy to want to travel less, but we just traveled so much, last year, that I ended up feeling more stressed and scattered, than rested and centered. I felt like I needed to make it a goal to be home a little more, this year. But now that it's been 7 months since our last trip...I'm going a little stir crazy! We have two other summer vacations planned, right now, but I'd say I'm sticking pretty good to my goal. Do you have any summer trips planned?

This white eyelet top is such a pretty addition to my closet. At first, I was afraid it was a little sheer and I'd have to wear a tank underneath, but I ended up wearing a bralette instead and it worked out just fine. I paired this white eyelet top with my favorite distressed denim, which have been in my closet for years! I actually found them on sale for  60% off, making them only $30, so you should definitely take advantage of that deal. (They are normally $80+!)

I've been living in these flat mules this spring. They are light and airy and so comfortable! They go with just about everything, and are only $25. I recently added this bag to my closet, too, and I'm pretty much obsessed. You'll be seeing it in heavy rotation, for sure.

The Best Summer Sandals Under $100

Now that it's officially been warmer around here, I've been slowly but surely switching out my Winter wardrobe for Spring/Summer finds. I have been on the hunt for good new Summer sandals, so I thought I would share a few faves I am coming across with. The only problem now, is that I've found so many cute Summer sandals I don't know where to start.

If you can't tell by the collage below, I have a thing for neutrals.

Best Summer Sandals Under $100

The Best Summer Sandals Under $100 featured by popular Colorado fashion blogger, Leah Behr
Wooden Wedge - I am majorly swooning over these Steve Madden wedges. They would go with just about anything from jeans to summer dresses. They are definitely a contender for getting added to my closet.

Clear Strap Sandals - I added these to my closet last summer and am so glad I did. They add a fun and expected touch to any dress, and step up the normal nude heel game.

White Slide Sandals - I've been eyeing these for months and think it's time to take the plunge. I love a good slide sandal and these white ones are so fun for summer.

Tan Slide Sandal - These are a great knock off of the Hermes version that have been a hit for years. If there is one sandal I think you actually need to add to your closet, this is it.

Classic Nude Strappy Sandal - If there is one sandal staple, you absolutely need to add to your summer wardrobe, it's a nude strappy sandal. I have these exact shoes in their tan color, and I really love them. They go with just about everything!

Nude Mule - These are definitlely going to be finding a home with me! I am such a sucker for a good mule and this nude color is a classic.

Platform Espadrille - Espadrille sandals are having a huge moment right now, and these platform espadrilles by Steve Madden are cute as can be! 

Clogs - I've never been a huge clog fan, they just don't do it for me, but I'm all about these ones! I feel like they would be perfect with jeans and dresses alike. They are definltey a contender to add to my summer wardrobe.

Espadrille Wedge - I've seen these ones on a few bloggers, and they are super cute. (I've heard they are comfy, too!) This is a classic summer shoe, that almost never goes out of style. And, at only $80, they're budget friendly.

Strappy Lace Up Sandal - I feel like every clost needs a good lace up sandal. They are just fun! Nude goes with everything, so if you are wanting to upgrade from your classic strappy sandal, but still want something that is versatile, go with this. 

Which are your favorite Summer sandals? Let me know in a comment below!
