Floral off the shoulder dress

The Mint Julep Boutique dress review

I always love collaborating with The Mint Julep Boutique because they have the cutest pieces! I was sifting through their new releases and this dress immediately caught my eye. It screams "vacation" and I'm totally vacation-mode focused at the moment! The colors are so fun, and admittedly, I don't have enough of this shade of green in my closet. The high-low hem is so dramatic, and you know I am all about drama when it comes to my outfits! The fact that it's off-the-shoulder just sealed the deal for me. Such a beautiful dress!

It's not goodbye!

Jenna and I started this linkup on July 27, 2015 - almost 3 years ago! You can look back at that original post here. But before Hello Monday came along, there was Manic Monday that I co-hosted with Gina! It was a spin-off of a Holiday Style linkup we hosted at the end of 2013! You can see the last post in that series where we officially announced Manic Monday here

Buying lately

Hey guys, and happy Monday! This is going to be a short and sweet post today, and the only post for the week, unfortunately. I had a mini breakdown last week and I've realized that I could use a bit of a break. It's not the blog that's stressing me out, but it's the lowest hanging fruit in terms of things I can cut back on to give myself a bit more breathing room in this thing called life and actually time to relax. I'm honestly not sure what this means long term for this blog or even for the linkup. But for now, I will share the things I've been buying lately.

Texas design tour

--- Our team at the "i love you so much" mural ---

As I've mentioned before, I grew up in San Antonio, so I consider Texas home. I lived there predominantly my whole life just past college graduation before moving to Ann Arbor, Michigan and then here to the St. Louis metro area. My boss wanted to plan a trip for the four of us to travel together. It's rare that the four of us on our team all travel at the same time to the same place. The purpose of the trip was to not only see some of our open cafes in the market, but to also visit other concepts for design inspiration. The trip was amazing for me and I had to make sure I documented all of our stops because I have a new appreciation for my home state.

Random roundup

I didn't know if I had it in me or not to pull together a random roundup post before the long weekend, but alas here we are. I feel like a lot of the things I wore last week were super old, so I apologize many of these exact pieces are no longer available. But, for what it's worth, this is everything I wore last week!

Black tee shirt

I posted this outfit on Instagram this weekend and mentioned that I wore it for brunch but then changed right before I walked out the door! Some days you just crave certain things, and while there is nothing wrong with this outfit at all, I wanted something off the shoulder instead!

Blue, white, and pop of leopard

Hey everyone! Happy Monday! Hope your weekends were productive and/or relaxing! Hopefully a mix of both! Since last weekend I spent so much time cleaning and purging the closet room, I definitely steered towards the "relaxing" side of the spectrum this weekend. Watched a couple of movies, had a long mani pedi, and brunched with the girls. It was nice! This week is going to be crazy busy with travel. I'm gone 3 days for work and then I leave next weekend for a long weekend for the nephew's first birthday party! But let's talk about this outfit first!
