What’s On My Summer Bucket List

I’m reading (and loving!) everybody’s seasonal bucket lists right now, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon. It has been a few years since I’ve written and shared a proper wish list for any season – I had a lot of fun putting this one together, and it surprisingly…

Elevated Everyday Closet Basics for Summer

Raise your hand if you get into a style rut come summer … ME! ME! ME! When the weather warms up, I usually fall back on comfort and ease without worrying about style. And, let’s be honest – I’m a jeans/denim shorts and tee girl 95% of the time anyway…

Hello, June! I can’t believe that summer is unofficially underway – when did that happen? Last month was a quiet one, yet it felt like it flew by. Maybe that’s just what happens once you get older! I’m still in the midst of trashing, trying and buying new things –…

  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
