anything with a tassel.

i am a sucker for anything with a tassel and this shift dress is no exception. as i mentioned before, the warmer months means the excuse to wear more dresses, and i am loving how this print dress can be worn day or night {for a dressier night look, pair with a leather jacket and black wedge sandals}. and i bet you will never guess where i bought these black gladiator sandals {see below for link for where to buy}!

it's one of the best sales and only happens twice a year and we can't get enough of it.

the nordstrom half yearly sale is happening NOW. you people need to run, not walk to your nearest store and start shopping. but if you're anything like us {extremely busy} then have no fear because it's all online too! but it ends sunday so no procrastinating!

below are some of our favorite finds for this sale {this list doesn't even make a dent in our wishlist!}

not going to lie a few of these are in our shopping carts as we type!

smooth, straight and frizz free.

does the title of this post intrigue you? well, those 4 little words sure did get to me when my hair dresser mentioned a smoothing treatment they offered at the salon. i had gotten used to taming my frizzy hair, but was so sick of how high maintenance it could be. in order for me to get beach waves {tutorial on this coming soon!} i had to blow dry, flat iron, and then use a curling wand. with my european vacay just around the corner the thought of having to do this process while on vacation was not something i wanted to be spending my time doing. so i took the plunge and tried this treatment, and i have to say...IT WORKS {like, really, really works}. after my first blow dry at home my hair dried in half the time, was 100% frizz free, and didn't even require a flat iron! if these before and after photos don't do the trick, i don't know what will ;)

for more information on this service, contact your local gene jaurez salon and ask about the "cezanne keratin smoothing treatment" or visit retexturizing  on their website for more info.

ONE dress. THREE ways.

i love when i can mix and match things and this dress is the perfect for that. i mean three outfits with one dress, does it really get any more versatile?! and if that wasn't good enough, this dress was under forty dollars! {you're welcome!}

now that it's starting to get warmer here in seattle i can go from day to night by just throwing a chunky sweater over it. or for colder weather i can wear it over jeans.

plain white tee {or tank}.

distressed denim, a simple white tank and a stand out statement necklace is one of my favorite looks for spring and summer because it's so effortless and fun.

i posted about this necklace on instagram a few weeks back and snatched this one up as soon as it went live. bauble bar has been doing celebrity collaborations and alessandra {insanely gorgeous VS super model} was their most recent "guest bartender" as they call it.

{umm, who wouldn't want to buy this necklace after seeing her model it!?}

leather + fringe {pure happiness}

i love leather jackets. and i love fringe. put the two together and i am one happy girl.

a girl can never have too many leather jackets. seriously though i have at least five BUT they are all different and this one is obviously my current fav {it has fringe people!}

{jacket / jeans / tee}

one dress. two ways.

the warmer weather is starting and that means wearing more dresses! loving this paisley print dress and how much i can change up the look with just a different sweater and accessories. i can't wait to try it with a jean jacket and flat sandals or a leather vest and gladiator wedges {that's 4 outfits total with just one dress}!

{dress // sweater: american eagle outfitters in store // booties: bcbg, nordstrom rack // hat similar here}

i am leaving today for our belated honeymoon to europe so make sure to check out our instagram for pics of our travels! can't wait to share our adventures with you when i return!

how to wear boyfriend jeans.

one of our followers tweeted us to ask how she should style boyfriend jeans after just buying her first pair. if you haven't worn bf jeans before, we can see how it may be daunting, especially when you aren't sure how they work with your body type. here are a few tips when wearing and pulling off this trend {btw-anyone can wear them, all it takes is some confidence, a smile, and a few easy accessories}. and the best part-this look can be worn day or night and here's how...

one: pair them with a ballet flat or sandal for a more casual look{sneakers are usually a don't as this silhouette can be more masculine to begin with and a sneaker tends to hide the ankle which is what you want to show off with this pant}. for a dressier version, try a stiletto or pointed toe heel {again, a wedge or chunky heel doesn't work as well. something sleek and structured works best}.

two: a tee shirt or tank with a simple cardigan is the perfect compliment for this cool look. to dress it up add a blazer or leather jacket.

three: accessorize! for a day time look, simple sunnies and a top knot bun work great. for a night on the town, add a statement necklace, bold lip and a clutch {umm hello effortlessly sexy}!
