This skirt is so fun! It looked super crazy on the hanger, so it only made sense to try it on. It’s super soft, and best of all…it’s on sale right now with an extra 40% off. I planned on being out and about so kept it cool and paired it with these sneakers I’ve been living in the past few weeks.

Tomorrow I’m off to my favorite place, and plan on packing this outfit with a twist! Be sure to follow me on instagram @ONLYIFYOULOVEIT for travel inspo and see what I’m up to!

Hey loves!! It feels good to hop back on the blog…I feel like so much has happened IRL and in the digital world, sometimes it’s hard to keep up! I’ve been so non-stop at my ‘9-5’,  9-neverstop, it’s been hard for me to find time to sit down and write and connect with you guys. When I do, I find myself getting distracted with emails, bills, and the 5 pairs of sandals yelling at me to proceed to checkout in my shopping cart.

It all comes back to: The Perfect Balance. What is the perfect balance? Now, I don’t have kids nor do I want them anytime soon seeing as how I’m trying to get my own life together, but trying to juggle everything all at once is not an easy task. The moment I had my first ‘omg I can’t do this anymore‘ moment, it all began to unravel. Let me explain…

A few months ago, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t waste my time on anything else that wasn’t going to make me happy.  From my relationship, to friendships, to workplace, I started to take a big look at what exactly was making me happy. For starters, my day job became a place I began to dread, not because of the people I work with, but because of the type of job I was doing. When you’re at a place for 10 hours/day doing something you don’t love, it starts to show…and not in the work, but the overwhelming anxiety of ‘omg I can’t do this anymore‘. Life is too short not to do what you love. Which made me realize how damn lucky I am to have this platform to connect with so many of you. Blogging is my outlet to unplug, and not just connect with you on a personal level, but also get to know you as my reader. I love sharing and inspiring women to feel good about themselves and helping find that long-term happiness, so hello Aquazzura heels.

I am nowhere near the perfect balance of life, but I think that’s just life, and I’m on the road to getting there. You find what works for you, what truly makes you happy, and own it.

BTW—FINALLY joined back on snapchat add me @ONLYIFYOULOVEIT and see where I’m off to later this week!

Love-Hate: Dresses

Not quite sure why, but I’ve had a love-hate relationship with dresses for years now. I love how easy it is to throw one on and you’re dressed, how girly it can make you feel, or best of all: how dressy it makes you. All this love, but theres still that something. This summer, I’ve decided to branch out, and go beyond my comfort zone to evolve my style and maybe even pin point “why such a love-hate?“.

On the hunt, I began thinking of the best places to wear a dress. The beach? A night out? Work & Play? All of the above! Here are some favorite finds sure to keep you looking and feeling cool over the summer months…

BEACH DAYS

NIGHT OUT

WORK + PLAY


Keep in mind, dresses instantly dress up your style, so depending on your mood you can throw in a sporty vibe like this white sneaker to soften up your look & keep it chill. Now, time to dress up! Xx
