sweater dress // similar boots // similar bag // necklace

I've been saving this dress for months (literally) for the most appropriate holiday... Thanksgiving!! This dress is so fun, so festive and so fall. I absolutely love the color, and, it's the perfect amount of oversized for pumpkin pie lovers like myself, so you'll stay comfy all day long!

I paired it with my ol' cowboy boots for some western vibes, but I think ankle booties would look super cute with it too. 

Hope everyone has a happy + safe Thanksgiving holiday!!

love is all we need print // cactus framed print // butterfly framed print
cactus garden framed print // peace sign wire art // yay sculpted wall decor
rhinestone cowgirl horns

I am so excited to share a little bit of my apartment with y'all (finally!!). I recently updated my living room with a new gallery wall, thanks to PBTeen! I just love how all the pieces are so unique yet cohesive, adding just the right amount of flair to my once-bare living room wall.

I drew inspiration from a lot of neutral tones and boho elements to create something that would inspire me, yet complement the space. When I moved into my new place, I knew my style had changed a little, so I wanted to reflect that while still coordinating with pieces I already had in my living room. I think this gallery wall does just that!

Being happy with where I'm at is hard for me. I'm always looking for the next thing, the next opportunity, the next weekend... always something. Whenever it arrives, I can't help but search for another thing to focus on worry about until it happens... and then, it does, and the cycle starts all over again.

This cycle leads me to a lot of grief, needless anxieties and countless "what ifs?" I get my hopes up for plans, and then life happens, and those plans I was so excited about don't pan out as I thought they would, leading to a lot of grief and unhappiness. The holidays are no exception.

With Thanksgiving just a couple weeks away, and Christmas right around the corner, I have to stop and remind myself to enjoy the moment. If there's anything 2017 has taught me, it's to be content with what I have, who I am and where I am. Things can change so quickly that I need to count my blessings each day that I have them. Sometimes, it's so easy to get caught up in the idea of where I should be that I miss all the fun of where I am right now. 

Choosing to embrace contentment not only yields happiness, but also gives me the freedom to focus on things that matter most. Jesus has been really good to me through some tough times earlier this year, and complaining about minor inconveniences during the day isn't a good way to show how grateful I am for his love through it all. Instead, this holiday season, I'm choosing to be thankful, mindful and above all joyful for where I'm at in my life at this point.

It's okay to look ahead and be excited for things to come (like my birthday next month!!!), but it's also important to be happy now. Be content with this moment, right now, and find happiness where you are. Some days, it's harder to find, but making a choice to be content will make a huge difference in your life. That thing you want oh so badly to happen isn't going to make you happy. Maybe for a minute, but it's fleeting. You are the only one who can wake up and choose to embrace happiness every day. Make it count!

I'm wearing... sweater (only $40 and comes in soo many colors!) • similar skirt • over-the-knee boots • crossbody bag (c/o)

Nothing like waiting 'til the last minute to realize that Halloween is only a couple days away, right?? I'm terrible at planning my Halloween costume, mostly because I end up watching Harry Potter movies with my dog (lol who can relate), so I always try to go for things that I can pull right from my own closet.

I've been so into Riverdale lately (but who hasn't???), so it was so easy to pull from the show for inspiration! While Betty & Veronica are popular picks this year for costumes, I went with a Cheryl Blossom vibe, complete with a burgundy mini skirt, OTK boots and her signature red lip. Just the right amount of ~spooky~ while still being on-trend!

What are you dressing up as this year??

Epcot's Food & Wine Festival is here!! It's honestly one of the best times to visit. I just love perusing the countries and sampling all the special food and drinks here just for the festival. There's so many new options this year, too!

I've visited a few times thus far and still haven't tried everything... pretty sure that would be impossible, so I've picked out my favorites to share with y'all.

I think the highlight of my tasting/sipping journey thus far has been the Pineapple Wine from Hawaii (yet it's made in Florida, who knew??). It was absolutely delicious, and I'm definitely going back for another before the festival ends. 21+ friends, don't miss this one.

I also really loved the Pomegranate Beer from Brewer's Collection (near Germany). It has a super fancy name I won't even try to spell, but trust me, it's amazing.

I'm prettyyy picky when it comes to food, so I'll leave that to my Disney foodies. Although, I did enjoy the calamari dish from Italy!

Are you planning on visiting Food & Wine this year?? What are you most looking forward to trying?

I'm wearing... romper (c/o, under $15!!) • similar shoesbaghatsunglasses

Dressing for fall in Florida can be tricky. With the endless sweaters and scarves popping up in stores, all I can think about is iced coffee and shorts still. Summer is nowhere near over down here, but since I like to stay on-trend with the seasons, I tend to switch up my wardrobe just a little bit to give a more fall-appropriate vibe. 

I always go for pieces that have more fall colors (wine, mustard, taupes, olive greens...) over textures. I like to mix flowy tops like the one I'm wearing here with shorts and boho accessories, or even denim with t-shirts and tanks in the evenings. Again, the trick is playing with colors and prints, and steering clear of anything that suggests layering. I'll definitely be sharing more ways to style fall looks for Florida soon!

In other news, I'm officially all moved-in to my new place! I'm so excited for the change of scenery and a much needed fresh start. And, of course, I can't wait to do a little redecorating, too. I'll share another apartment tour once it's all done, so stay tuned!
