The Perfect Long Jacket

Happy Friday!  I hope you have fun plans and are getting ready for the holiday next week!  We are having Friendsgiving at our house tomorrow so this weekend will be very busy!  Anyway…  I recently went into Tai Pan in Sandy, UT and got a few things.  When I saw this long jacket I knew I needed it.  The length and color are perfection!  If you don’t know how to style long jackets just put it with some skinny jeans (you can never go wrong with black) and a tee shirt.  You want to make sure that the jacket is the main focus of your outfit.  I am super obsessed with it and want to wear it everyday.  Oh and the jeans are the same ones I worn in my last post.  Like I said they will be in majority of my future post!  Kk I’ll keep it short! Bye have a great weekend!

The Perfect Jean

Hey Monday! I know I have been on a few month hiatus, but life has been crazy! I won’t bore you with the details and I’ll get straight to talking about this outfit. So you’ll notice that in majority of my up coming posts I will be in black jeans. No, they aren’t different they are the same pair. I’ve basically been living in them! I don’t know about you, but it takes me forever to find the perfect jean. All of them are usually too long or too loose around the ankle or knee and I hate that so much! If I’m wearing skinny jeans I want them to be skinny! Anyway… Last weekend Daniel and I went to the mall I told him I wanted to try on some jeans in Nordstrom. I tried on the Top Shop brand and they are the perfect pair of jeans! I’m going to order another pair of black and a few more colors. If you’re wondering what they are they are style “Leigh”. Trust me you will love them! Please don’t judge me when you see the rest of my upcoming post! I promise I wash them! 😉

Denim is Always a Good Idea

Hello!  A few weeks ago I went to NYC for work and of course I had to stop in at Zara.  When I saw this denim dress I knew I had to get it.  I am obsessed with everything denim!  Sunday my whole family is taking family pictures and I picked out Daniel’s outfit and he’s wearing all demin.  When I was trying to figure out what I wanted to wear I went straight for everything denim.  I wanted to change Daniel’s outfit so I could wear the denim things I found, but I was a nice wife and let him keep his outfit.  HA  Anyway…  I hope you have a good day!

Life

Happy Wednesday!  So Daniel and I have been married for a little over 11 months.  I can’t believe how fast time flies.  I don’t feel like we’ve been married for that long, but I feel like I’ve known him forever.  I know that sounds weird, but it’s true.  I feel like this past year we have been so busy.  Lately we are never home, there’s always a soccer game, or blog photos, or a family event, or a nail or lash appointment, or whatever else and we don’t get home until 10 ish at night.  I feel like our house is always a mess because we aren’t home.  We haven’t been home for a weekend for the past month.  I’m not complaining because we have been on fun trips, but life is hectic!  I wish I could pause time so I could get my life in order and clean our house.  I would only need two days or so then I could press play and live my life.  Anyway… I feel like this outfit is perfect for my crazy life.  It’s super simple, but it looks like I took time to get ready.  Personally, I think that if you wear a dress or a skirt even if it’s casual it’ll always make you look put together.  I got this skirt at Zara last year and forgot I had it.  I cleaned out our closet a few weeks ago and found it.  Just a little FYI I’ve cleaned out our closet a good 3-4 time this year and it looks like I’ve done nothing to it!  I’ve gotten rid of 6-7 garbage bags full of stuff every time I’ve cleaned it out, but it’s still a mess!  I hate to admit it, but I am a hoarder!  Kk… Enough of this rant.  Bye!

Black and White Check

I know it’s summer and the hotter temps are here, but I just got this jacket at the Stylebuy sample sale in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago and I love it!  It’s Harlowe and Graham.  This brand is sold at Nordstrom.  I was so excited when I saw this great piece.  I’ve seen the black and white grid jackets before and have always wanted one.  Well, thank you Stylebuy for having a sample sale so I could find one!  I will for sure be wearing this all year-long!  Such an awesome timeless piece to have in your closet!

PS.  As you can see in some of these pictures that I am laughing super hard.  I got the giggles during this shoot and couldn’t stop laughing!  I’m surprised Shay got a few with me being serious.  She seriously is the best!  If you need a photographer for anything contact her!  You won’t regret it.

Permanent Resident

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  I know I did.  Remember a few posts ago when I told you my embarrassing story about getting our wedding date wrong for Daniel’s Green Card interview?  Well, luckily my stupidity didn’t hurt our chance of getting him approved to become a permanent resident of the USA!  We got a letter in the mail last week saying he was approved and a few days after that we got his green card in the mail!  It only took a week to get after our interview was over.  We are beyond excited!  On Saturday Daniel and I celebrated him being a permanent resident of the United States with our families.  We are so thrilled to finally be able to leave the country together.  We hopefully will go on a cruise or something out of the US soon.  If you have any suggestions on a fun, fast cruise please leave me a comment.  Any advice will help out!  Anyway… Enjoy the beginning of your week.  Also, go get these pants from my pictures.  They are so comfortable!
