We all deal with insecurities in our life at some point. Whether it’s with our jobs, our relationships, our hobbies, our bodies, or even the way we dress. I have struggled back and forth several times with feelings of insecurity. I still struggle with it at times when my focus is lost or I get distracted by someone else’s life. We all want that beautiful and perfect life of traveling to new places, having the best relationships, lots of money, or the best job. I love this quote from Stasi Eldridge’s book Captivating, “We desire to possess a beauty that is worth pursuing, worth fighting for, a beauty that is core to who we truly are. We want beauty that can be seen; beauty that can be felt; beauty that affects others; a beauty all our own to unveil.”Read More...
It’s finally starting to feel like spring in PA and I am so ready and excited for the warmer weather. There is nothing better than throwing on a sun dress and a light jacket or cardigan or a cute top with jeans. We always need the perfect pair of shoes to go along with our outfit. I absolutely love shoes too. So I am excited to share with you all some of my top favorite finds for spring sandals. I am going to be sharing my favorite heeled, wedges, and flat sandals.
Wedges go great with a pair of shorts and a top or a pair of jeans and a top or even a skirt or dress. You can wear them with so many different outfits. I found the cutest nude wedge from Red Dress Boutique. These sell out really fast, so I also linked the exact same pair from Amazon. You can find almost anything on Amazon. They come in several colors including a leopard and snakeskin. The best part about these shoes is they go with everything and are so comfortable. I wore them around a Disney park for the day and my feet didn’t hurt too much at night. I also linked some cute wedges from Target that are on my list to get next.
I love a good heeled sandal to wear with dresses and jeans. It helps to make the outfit look dressier and more formal. My favorite heeled sandals are these black and nude plain strapped heels. I love the block heels on my nude shoes the best since they make walking easier and are more comfortable for longer periods of time. I found mine at Francesca’s last year but they have almost identical ones at Target and Red Dress Boutique. I linked several different options below in different colors too. It’s always great to have one nude pair and one black pair.
I also have a pair of cognac shorter heeled sandals from Prim and Pop Boutique that I absolutely love. They are so comfortable and give you a little height, but aren’t too high of a heel. So if you want to go with something shorter I would recommend these. I also linked some from Target too. You can get my exact pair for 20% off at checkout by using my code: Autumn20. They fit true to size and I wear a size 6.5 or 7 normally.
Having several pairs of flat sandals and flip flops are a must for spring. They are the shoe I go for when I want something easy to throw on with dresses or shorts. My favorite pairs of flat sandals are from Target. I have a cognac color flat and a black pair. My cognac ones are still in stock and they have similar ones to my black ones. Amazon also has lots of cute flat sandals as well and I linked my favorites below.
Hope this helps you all with your spring outfits! Happy Spring! Have a great weekend!
I love shopping period. You can normally find me checking out different boutiques to shop at for unique items. I love brand name clothes, but I also love small boutiques. I love being able to support a small business too. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite small boutiques I have worked with and some I haven’t worked with yet, but love.Read More...
Date night is always a special night for us. I always look foreword to date night with my hubby. We both have off on Friday so we either do a date during the day or in the evening. Now that it is finally starting to feel like spring in PA we can start doing some fun date nights. As a young couple, it is hard sometimes to think of date ideas, especially if you live in a smaller town. I figured I would share my top five favorite spring date nights with you all.
1. Going to the Zoo.
We have to travel to get to a good zoo near us, but we make the travel fun. We bring some of our favorite snacks along in the car or we stop for lunch at Chick Fil A along the way. We live a little over an hour from the D.C. Zoo so we like to go on Friday during the day typically. The best part about this zoo is it’s free. You will need to pay for parking, but it’s not much more than $20 at most. There are so many fun animals and things to see at the zoo. We always have the best time there. Afterwards, we go to a frozen yogurt shop which is right across the road from the zoo for a treat. They also have an amazing sorbet for anyone else who is dairy free like me.
2. Going Hiking or Going to the Beach
We have lots of great hiking spots around our area including the Appalachian Trail, so we love to go hiking during the cool spring days. If you don’t have hiking and have a beach or lake near you then make a trip to the beach or lake for the day. We have a beach about three hours from us, which is far, but we are planning a trip there this summer already. Going on adventures together can be so much fun. We love packing our favorite snacks for all of these adventures and also stopping for some ice cream afterwards. Our favorite place to hike in our area is up near high rock. You have some amazing and beautiful views up there.
3. Going on a long walk or bike ride
We also have some amazing trails for walking and bike riding so we love going during the spring time when it’s still cool outside. Make sure you have a bike rack for your car if you are planning on going biking anywhere. We will either grab lunch on our way or pack a lunch and have a picnic. This is one of my favorite things to do during the spring and fall.
4. Visit a city close by
We live in a small town but are really close to lots of bigger cities so we have a lot of different options. Find a big city near you and go visit it for the day or stay one night over the weekend. We both find it so romantic and exciting to go somewhere outside of our comfort zone. We love visiting Georgetown, D.C., Hershey, Baltimore, Gettysburg, and Frederick is one of our favorites. There is so much more to do in bigger cities like walking around the town, going into shops, visiting national monuments, and lots of different restaurants. I love food, so that is the best part of traveling different places to me. Traveling together makes some of the best memories.
5. Have a Picnic then Star Gaze
Find a different park in your area and plan for a picnic. Don’t forget to grab your supplies at the store before you head out. We haven’t done this a lot recently, but I am looking foreword to being able to have more picnics this spring together. Grab your favorite foods to grill or even your favorite fast food and bring a blanket to sit on. You can also make it romantic by playing some music and dancing together. We also love bringing a frisbee to throw as well.
One of the most important parts of marriage and building a relationship with someone is by spending time with them and having fun with anything you do together. It’s so important to date your spouse and make them feel loved by adventuring together. I can’t wait for many adventures this spring with my hubby. I hope this helped you all to think of some new ideas for date nights this spring and I hope you all have a great weekend!
Spring is my favorite season and although it still feels like winter in PA, I love getting ready for spring. I leave for FL on Tuesday and I am so excited for warm weather and sundresses. I love the feeling of being able to throw on a sundress and sandals and head out the door instead of putting five layers on. I know many of you all have wanted Spring Vacay outfit ideas as well so I am excited to share some of my favorite Spring trends, rompers, and dresses. I wear a variety of casual and dressy so I will share some ideas for both. I am also going to share a lot of unique boutiques which I have gotten to work with on spring items and I have coupon codes for you all as well.Read More...
