Date Night Dress

Hope you ladies are having a great week - it's almost the weekend, woohoo! We've had a super hectic week - we are redoing some things in our new home, so we've been back and forth between home and a hotel. Hotel living can be fun, but I'm ready to just be able to be at home and get settled! In the midst of it all, we still had time for a little mini date night - and I decided to wear this amazing dress from Nicole Miller's Artelier collection - it's sold out, but the skirt version is great as well - the beadwork and embroidery are so great! I paired it with my favorite Zara heels (similar here), old clutch from Gap (love this one), and some gold jewelry from Lana Jewelry, The Oxford Trunk, and Miansai. This is the perfect dress for so many occasions - date nights, weddings, bridal showers, bachelorette parties...the list goes on! I have a feeling I'll be wearing it non-stop this summer. Xx

Happy Birthday Somewhere, Lately!

Happy humpday ladies! It's hard to believe, but this little blog of ours turns ONE today! This year has flown by, and our blog has been such a source of happiness for us - thanks to YOU, our readers! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading our blog, sharing out photos, and commenting, it really means SO much to us! We want to know what you'd like to see more of in the next year? Please, please let us know! We can't wait to see what this year brings, kisses! Xx 


Hope you ladies are having an amazing week, we are finally getting back into the swing of things from the weekend. As bloggers, we tend to get caught up in the never-ending world of social media. We are constantly using technology...whether it's blogging, Instagramming, or checking in on our favorite blogs, it seems as if life revolves around a screen. Both of us have to agree, taking a break is essential to our sanity and creativity. smartwater has created an Instagram challenge (#lookupsweepstakes) to look up, and take quick tech breaks throughout the day. Be sure to follow smartwater on Instagram and enter the contest (you could win a free trip!).
As you know, I was recently on vacation, and all I could see was a blue sky over the lake, surrounded by blooming flowers. I'm not sure there's anything greater than being on vacation surrounded by beautiful views. I had to throw on my favorite floral bathing suit to enjoy time on the dock with friends. The flowers on my suit looked just like those surrounding the lake, it was the perfect outfit for a day under the sun. It was such a great change of pace from my everyday (hectic) life. 

Like Brooke, I was inspired to take a break from my busy city life and spend the day at one of my favorite parks just south of the city. The sky and water were so blue, I decided to mimic Mother Nature and threw on this maxi dress and purse. The day was spent with close friends, good food and amazing views of the city and lake. It's so easy to get caught up in life and forget to take a breather from "reality". Days like this are the ones I will never forget!

Summer Dress

Happy Monday lovely ladies! Hope you all had a fab weekend! Mine was jam packed with activities and I'm feeling a little exhausted from all the fun! Lots of coffee will be consumed today! I wore this dress to a casual sushi dinner last night (followed by Pink Berry, yum!). I bought it at Milk & Honey Boutique when I was in Dallas over the 4th of July. It has easily become one of my favorites of the summer - I love the details and the heart cut-out on the back. It's also great because its a great mix of casual and dressy which makes it perfect for different occasions. As you can tell I've been basically living in these sandals. They go with everything and are so comfortable, it's hard to wear anything else!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks!

Happy Friday lovahhs! SO happy the weekend is finally here! Tonight I'm doing a cooking class with my boyfriend at the Chopping Block and tomorrow were celebrating one of my best friends birthdays! Were also kicking the weekend off with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Although were in the middle of summer, it's time to start shopping for fall - yay! I'm definitely adding these boots and this bag to my shopping cart. So many things I want to buy! Have a great weekend! Xx

New In: My Closet

I can't get enough white lately - in my home and in my closet. These are two new blouses I love, you may have seen the crochet top on instagram the other day. It's from The Oxford Trunk, and is probably my favorite piece for summer - I have a feeling I'll be wearing it all the time (stay tuned for a full outfit post). This button down is the perfect boyfriend shirt - it's silky so it falls perfectly, and it can be worn so many different ways. I love that the back is a little longer than the front. The best part? It's only $20! A great piece that can be worn from summer into fall. I've been so busy unpacking all week, we moved into our new home, and it's so great to have s-p-a-c-e! I'll fill you in on all of the moving details (and drama) later, but have to go finish unpacking now - we're almost done, what a relief! Hope you are having a fabulous week! Xx
