What I Wore On My Disney Cruise | Formal Night, Excursions, Pajamas & More!


Hey guys!  We actually just got back from a Disney cruise to the Western Caribbean and I thought I would share some of the outfits I wore with you guys.  Every single outfit I wore worked out perfectly. I don't know if I've ever been more satisfied with my fashion on a trip.  So, if you are planning a cruise in your near future, maybe some of these things can give you some ideas. 



Boarding the ship
There are a few things you should keep in mind when you think about what you should wear on the day you board a cruise.  Most often your bags are taken by staff and later delivered to your room.  And, often times, that process can take a few hours.  I highly recommend wearing something comfortable and fun, just in case you are in it for several hours and in the event you also need to wear it for dinner.  This off the shoulder blue dress I found on Poshmark and I thought it made the perfect embarkation outfit.  I tossed my swimsuit and a bottle of sunscreen into my shoulder bag and off I went.  This little dress was light and comfy, but also worked as a swimsuit coverup.  I could have easily worn this to dinner, but, thankfully, my bags arrived at my room in plenty of time for me to change.

Dress:  (Poshmark) Indah Kamani Ruffle Edge Mini Dress
Flip Flops:  Haviana Slims
Ears:  Disney


A day at sea

Our first and last days on the ship were actually spent cruising at sea.  For these days I opted for comfortable tropical/nautical inspired pieces.  I didn't photograph my other day at sea look, but it consisted of an anchor print cardigan with a white tank and khaki shorts.

Dress:  Amazon
Sunglasses:  Amazon
Flip Flops:  Haviana Slims
Bag:  Cult Gaia


At the ship pool

As someone who has a history of melanoma (skin cancer), I try to cover up as much as possible while I'm in the sun.  That typically consists of a bathing suit with a coverup, a floppy hat and big sunglasses.

Coverup:  Victoria's Secret
Floppy hat:  Tuesday Morning
Swimsuit:  Forever 21
Flip Flops:  Haviana Slims

Sunflower Field Photo Shoot | Outfit Ideas | Pose Ideas


Hey guys!
One of my favorite things in this entire world to do is visit Sunflower fields, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, anything along those lines. Here in central Kentucky we have several orchards within a 15 minute car ride, and I was so excited to go see the GORGEOUS Sunflowers this year! Not only is it fun to just go and see, but it is an excellent opportunity to snap some gorgeous photos.  I noticed a lot of photographers snapping professional shots of families and couples, but my photos were just snapped with a regular iPhone. Nothing glamorous or time consuming, and they turned out so well. I thought I would give you some ideas on a possible outfit and different poses to give you a little inspiration if you have the chance to visit a Sunflower field. 


One of my favorite props for photos has to be a hat. A signature pose I often do is to turn my back to the camera and hold the hat with my hands. It automatically elevates a basic snapshot into something Instagram worthy. 


Pick a gorgeous bloom and use that sucker as a prop. This particular Sunflower field lets you pick any Sunflower in the field for $2/bloom. LOVE. 


~Be like a Sunflower....even in the dark stand tall and find the sunlight. 


As for my outfit, I immediately knew I wanted something off the shoulder (my signature Summer look in these hot, humid days), and I knew I preferred a print that would pair well with the Sunflower background. Buffalo check is always a good choice, and the mod white bracelet and white gladiator sandals were last minute additions that completed the look. I love big, statement earrings with off the shoulder dresses, and the black trimmed straw hat just seemed to finish the look to perfection. I think a bright red dress or a white summer dress would also look perfect in a Sunflower field!

Details:
Dress: Poshmark (boutique, mine is no longer on there but there are TONS similar)
Sandals: OLD, I can't even remember where
Bracelet: Iris Apfel
Hat: Amazon
Earrings: Dillard's


Did you spot the yellow butterfly? 


Another honeybee drinking up the Sunflower goodness!


God's handiwork!



So basically, throw on a pretty dress and smile your biggest smile! You can't go wrong in a field of beautiful Sunflowers! They have to be the PERFECT backdrop for gorgeous photos. If you take any pictures in a sunflower field make sure to tag me in your photos and let me see!

Pumpkin Patch And Apple Orchard 2018 | OOTD

Hey guys!  We have already been hitting up the local pumpkin patches and apple orchards here in my neck of the woods and I wanted to share with you an outfit that I absolutely fell in love with.  It is, to me, the PERFECT fall outfit - ideal for anything you may do!  Comfy and cute, this outfit is perfect for photographs as well.



A simple flannel with bright red rain boots.  Perfect!


I kept the makeup and hair fairly simple - just long waves in my hair (my everyday hair style) paired with a bright red lip.  Another go-to look of mine.


Necklace/earrings:  Plunder
Red lip:  Colourpop x Alexis Ren Lipstick in Little Weapon



Shirt:  JCrew
Skirt:  JCrew
Vest:  JCrew
Boots:  Hunter





Let me know what your favorite things to wear to a pumpkin patch are!  I have a few more super cute looks to share with you guys, so keep an eye out for them.

A Week's Worth Of Outfits | What I Wear To Work

Hey guys!  I thought I'd share another Week's Worth of Outfits with you today!  Make sure to check out my previous posts if you enjoy these.  I love getting ideas and inspiration for different outfits by seeing what other people are wearing!

Dress:  Meijer
Kimono:  Forever 21
Bangles:  Bourbon & Bowties
Sandals:  Sam Edelman
Yellow Sapphire ring:  QVC

This has to be one of the most comfortable outfits I've ever worn.  The dress is so soft you can barely feel it.  Paired with the dramatic kimono it was totally work appropriate and even kind of dressy.

Dress:  Amazon
Sandals:  Ashley Stewart
Yellow Sapphire ring:  QVC
Watch:  Citizen Eco-drive

I'm totally spoiled with the two day shipping with Amazon Prime.  It makes ordering new things way too tempting!  This one-piece dress looks like you are actually wearing a top with a skirt.  Love.

Cardigan:  JCrew
Skirt:  Older from a boutique in my hometown
Bow flats:  Libby.Edelman

I received so many compliments on this outfit!  I absolutely love black and white paired with yellow!  So fun!

Cardigan:  Target
Shell:  Walmart
Pants:  Old Navy
Sandals:  Tuscany brand (from Nordstrom)
Birthstone ring:  QVC

I wear a TON of blue, including quite a bit of navy.  This outfit was crazy comfortable but also looked nice for work.  Absolutely perfect!

Blouse:  JCrew
Skirt:  JCrew
Sandals:  Sam Edelman

JCrew is the most popular brand of clothes you will find in my closet.  I absolutely adore JCrew!  This outfit was so comfy, light and loose.  And I love the red shirt paired with a red lip!

Dress:  Eloquii
Sandals:  JCrew
Bangles:  Forever 21
Watch:  Citizen Eco-drive
Yellow Sapphire ring:  QVC

Eloquii is a plus size clothing store with absolutely AMAZING clothes.  The only downside to losing weight is that their clothes only go down to a 14, although some styles are offered in a 12 as well.  The last bit of clothing I have purchased has been a 12, but this dress is in a 14 and fits fabulously.  The scuba knit fabric keeps it kinda clingy in the right areas, and I can definitely appreciate the extra fabric in the body of the dress!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a great rest of your week!
Be blessed.
