I Got Stung

Hi!  I hope you’re having a good week so far.  Mine started a little rough because I got stung by a bee!  I honestly don’t remember the last time I got stung.  Daniel and I were at his company party and it was a carnival theme. We were getting on The Zipper and when I sat down something poked the back of my leg.  I thought there was something sharp on the seat.  I wiped the seat and my leg and didn’t feel anything.  When we got locked in our cart I looked down and saw the stupid bee on the ground!  My leg was throbbing and I couldn’t get off the ride.  I wasn’t sure if I was allergic because it’s been so long.  I was freaking out a bit thinking I might have an allergic reaction on this ride and I won’t be able to do anything about it.  Luckily I was fine and nothing happened to me one the ride besides getting a little nauseous from spinning around so much.  Anyway…  Let’s talk about these culottes for a sec.  They are so comfy!  I was in NYC at the beginning of the year and found them at Zara.  I forgot I had them and spotted them in my closet last week. They are the best summer pant because they are so light weight.  I can’t want to wear these more.  It’ll probably wear them once a week!  Okay, have a good Wednesday!

Monday Morning Brights

Good morning!  I hope you had a good weekend!  I sure did.  Daniel and I went to Park City, UT for a little anniversary getaway.  We didn’t do anything special, but it was so nice and relaxing.  We got massages, ate a lot of food, walked around Main Street, went to Park Silly and just spent time together.  It was the perfect way to celebrate our first year of marriage!  Anyway…  I usually don’t wear a lot of color and I for sure don’t wear yellow very much.  I feel like yellow tops makes my teeth look super yellow.  I know, I’m a little crazy!  I saw this top last fall before I the Kingdom and State’s spring line launched and fell in love!  The fabric is neoprene which is right on trend.  I paired it with shorts, but it also looks good with a pair of skinny jeans.  The great thing about this top is it’s a thick ish material so it’ll for sure cross over into your fall wardrobe!  Kk have a great day!  Bye!

Shorts Are My Thing

Hi Monday! This past weekend Daniel and I went to Park City with some friends and stayed over night. We went to Main Street, ate some dinner and played games all night. Then on Saturday the boys went mountain biking and the girls went to the pool. It was so relaxing and a nice weekend get away. I forget that Park City is so close to us and don’t take advantage of going up there often. Right now we don’t have kids and got to talking with one of the girls about how much freedom we have right now. We can’t take for granted this time we have to spends with our friends and do whatever we want. Don’t get me wrong I am excited to have kids with Daniel one day, but it can definitely wait a few more years. I love that we can stay up as late as we want or go on random overnight trips. If you don’t have kids don’t just sit around and wait for the time to pass. Life is too short to not live you’re life! I know once we have kids we will take them to travel and do things with us, but for right now I love the freedom and flexibility we have! Anyway… About this outfit. I seriously can’t get enough of these shorts! They have saved my life this summer. They are super light weight and go with any kind of too you want to wear. I know summer is half way over, but get some of these now! I know you won’t regret it and you won’t be throwing them away next year. They are a timeless piece to have in your closet!

Culottes & Life Lessons

Hello!  I know it’s Wednesday, but I am still trying to get into the swing of things after the holiday weekend!  The past few days I have been lagging a little.  Friday we went boating and the weather was perfect!  There obviously were a lot of boats on the lake, but we still had fun.  The only sucky part about our day was breaking down and being stranded on the water!  We called the rangers office, but they were dealing with an accident and said they would get to us as soon as they were done.  We tried to flag people down, but for some reason no one was willing to stop and help.  We were getting a little worried because we were getting close to shore and didn’t want the bottom of the boat to hit rocks.  We were just about to jump out and push the boat to safety when some people stopped and asked if we needed help.  Honestly, they were the last people who I thought would stop.  It was a group of friends, two guys and one girl.  They were a little harsh looking, but so nice!  They helped tie a rope onto our boat and slowly pulled us to the ramp.  One of the guys even came into our boat to check the motor and things out to see if he knew what was wrong.  I feel bad that I made a snap judgement on them.  I for sure learned a lesson last week and will never judge someone on their appearance.  I wish I knew their names so I could send them a thank you.  I know this outfit has nothing to do with my weekend or my story, but I thought it was a good lesson to share with everyone.  Anyway…  These culottes are one of my favorite pieces from Kingdom and State.  They are seriously the bomb.com!  If you haven’t tried culottes try them NOW!  I know that these are white, but they are thick and not see through at all.  Plus they are so comfy and flattering.  I really feel so skinny in them!  Yahoo!  Who doesn’t love that feeling?  Anyway…  I think I’ve talked your ears off enough!  Bye!
