The Perfect Easter Dresses Under $100

T-minus 2 weeks til Easter people! Is this year flying by or what? Getting dressed up for Easter is one of my favorite parts about the holiday. There are so many great easter dresses right now, that I had to share a few of my faves I found while shopping. I've rounded everything up from pastels, and bold colors, to florals and lace patterns. Which is your favorite below?

What do you normally do for Easter? I feel like our Easter plans have been all over the place in recent years. I'm a total creature of habit and crave tradition, so that's been a bit of a hard adjustment for me. Perhaps when we have a bigger home, we will make it our holiday to host. This year, we are heading to the Garden of the Gods Club (remember when I stayed there?) for brunch with Brandon's family and my parents. I'm definitely looking forward to the amazing views and some qt with the fam. 

What are your easter plans? Do you plan to buy a new dress? Let me know in the comments below!

5 White Tops For Spring

I feel like there is never really not a good time for a cute white top, but there is something about Spring that makes them even more appealing. The crisp white color, the eyelet or knotted details...they all hint toward warmer weather and the promise of Spring in the air. 

I recently score this one from H&M for $18, and absolutely love it! It got me thinking about how white blouses are such a spring staple, so I rounded a few more faves for you below. (This one is such a steal though, it's like...why even bother sharing more?! It also comes in 5 colors, if you are feeling the style but want a little bit more flavor in your life. That's also why this top appears like a floral number in the thumbnails below.)

Speaking of Spring - I feel like a total teen again because I am heading to Victoria's Secret PINK Spring Break in Breckenridge today. I mean...PINCH ME! I'll be sharing all the fun over on my Instagram story, so be sure to follow along there.

Love you guys, mean it.

Orange Jumpsuit For Spring

Spring is in the air and I couldn't be more excited. I'm usually not a huge Spring fan, because they tend to be short lived here in Colorado, but Spring does mean we are one step closer to Summer, which sets my heart a flutter!

We've actually had a pretty mild winter around here, which makes it easy to start wanting to stock up on Spring pieces - and I totally have!

This orange jumpsuit was one of the first pieces I added. It's such a great color for spring!

I shared this look on my Instagram a few weeks ago. I recently changed how you can shop my looks over there, and thought I'd give you a quick run down. If you ever see a look on Instagram, and want to shop it - simply go to the link in my profile (this one: and find the thumbnail of the picture you want shop. Click on the thumbnail, and it will open up all the shoppable links, right there, without having to sign up for anything! It even tells you if it's an exact item, or not.

An Everyday Evening Routine For Better Sleep

A couple of weeks ago, I shared my everyday morning routine with you all, so I thought it would make sense to go ahead and share my evening routine with you.

I have struggled with getting good sleep for a very long time, and have tried just about everything to help me get better rest, and the evening routine tips below seem to work the best for me.

I wish I could say I am better about doing this evening routine, but sometimes I am just too tired and end up crawling into bed. One thing I never ever forget to do though, is remove the makeup from my face (and brush my teeth! #obvi). The other things I will do, on a perfect night, when I care about going the extra mile for a night of good rest.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar - Just like in the morning, another time I like to drink ACV is right before bed. I love that I feel like it's working in my system, for a full 8 hours, while I sleep. Not only is it supposed to aid in weight loss, but it stabilizes your blood sugar, which is a must if I have had two glasses of wine that night, and don't want to wake up at 1am wired! Anyone else get that post-wine blood sugar spike after they hit 30?!

2. Magnesium - This is a wonder supplement, that most people are completely depleted of. Magnesium plays a huge role in the function of your body, yet our fruits and vegetables continue to produce less of it and other nutrients, we need. I initially started taking magnesium by recommendation of my naturopath, to assist with, well..."staying regular". Not only has it helped with that, but taking a couple tablets before bedtime also reduces cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and relaxes my muscles to help aid with good rest. There are a few different supplements I like for this. Right now, I am taking these Magnesium Glycinate tablets. (I've read magnesium glycinate is more easily absorbable than other forms of magnesium.) I also really like this powder that you can mix with water, because it absorbs quickly. 

3. Tea - Brandon and I have recently become addicted to tea! We love mixing 1 bag of stress relief tea and 1 bag of bedtime tea. The combination helps wind the mind and body down.

4. Wash Face - This doesn't really help with better sleep, but I never go to bed without removing my makeup. At bare minimum, I always use these makeup remove wipes. If I am being really good, I follow up with a face wash, toner, serum and face oil regimen. You can learn more about my overall beauty routine and products I swear by, here

5. Put on a podcast - When Brandon and I met, I was a total "fall asleep with the TV on" kind of girl. He wasn't, so we eventually compromised and decided audio sound was the way to go. Every night, we put on On Being or Ted Radio Hour. They are typically more soothing than some of the other motivational podcasts I listen to during the day. You can see more about which podcasts I love here. If I wake up in the middle of the night and my mind starts racing, I usually put on the "Sleep With Me" podcast. This guy just talks gibberish and tells ridiculous stories, that help you tune out and fall asleep.

This evening routine may seem like a lot to try to tackle before bedtime, but all these steps are really so essential to me for good quality sleep. If I'm still wired before bed, and in need of good sleep, I'll also take a melatonin or this product called Sleep Thru

Skirt With Lacing & Sweater + OTK Boots

Would you believe it if I told you that I'm fighting a cold, for the 3rd time in 2.5 months? You guys...I can't even. I am normally such a healthy person, so it just speaks to how bad this cold/flu season really is. You just can't avoid it. Well, you can't avoid it if you're like me and see a ton of people everyday. And, sometimes, those people are sick...

Anyway, I wanted to share a fun OOTD for those of you who struggle with what to wear when the weather can't make up its mind. Is it winter.... is it summer... I don't know.

Styling a skirt with lacing plus a sweater and OTK boots, is one way to transition from winter to summer weather. I'm a big fan of this sweater, and it's cropped nature. It makes it perfect for pairing with skirts, and other slimmer bottom styles. For sweaters that aren't cropped, I recommend tucking the front of the sweater into the skirt. This will help to accentuate your waistline and avoid an otherwise bulky look.

I got a lot of questions about this skirt with lacing over on Instagram. It's a total steal at just $35! I usually size one size up at this retailer, but honestly could have gone up 2 sizes on this skirt.

These OTK boots are on sale for $25, btw. Crazy right? I'm curious to see if they will hold up next Winter, but hey...for $25, they have done me right this season.

Spring Accessories That Elevate An Outfit

Heading back into the work week feeling super refreshed! Brandon and I spent most of Sunday laying around the house. We don't have those days too often, so I relish them, every chance we get. We watched the movie "Wonder", and about a heart wrencher! Has anyone else seen it?

I also spent most of Sunday on the computer, editing photos and prepping content. (Yes, my "rest" days usually still involve some sort of work...) I really love how these photos turned out! (I shared a bit about how I edit on Instagram my story, yesterday.) I also really love this outfit, and it got me thinking about how spring accessories can really elevate an outfit.

The basic white button up (this one is only $19!) and Levi's are cute on their own. But adding in a neck-tie and double buckle belt, really take it to the next level, don't you think? I plan on pairing this neck tie with plain t-shirts, as well. It's really such a simple way to instantly elevate the look.

I am super sad this neck-tie is sold out online, but I did recently see it in H&M stores, so check out your local H&M to see if they have it. (It came in a 2-pack, with a striped version for like $7!) If you prefer to shop online, I really like this one, and it's affordable, as well.

By the way, my shoes are only $40! That is the cheapest I have ever seen of this style! I sized a half size up, if you are wondering.

I've linked everything I'm wearing the widget below. I highly recommend snagging these spring accessories while you still can!

My Outfits On Instagram

Happy Friday! I have been sharing some outfits on Instagram, that hasn't made its way over to the blog, so I wanted to do a quick roundup. Outfit deets are linked below each photo. Don't worry if the link is a different color of the item, than what I am wearing. It should take you to the right one, and usually there are just multiple color options.

I don't do these round-ups too often, so make sure you are following along on Instagram and Facebook, so you don't miss anything! I'm also making it easier than ever to shop my looks, via the link in my Instagram profile. You don't have to sign up for anything! Just follow this link in my profile, and click on the thumbnails to view product details for each photo.
