Springtime at the Capitol

Hi guys! If you are a Utah local, I am assuming you have been to the Utah capitol building in downtown Salt Lake City in the springtime. Since we just moved here (in January), I was unaware that it was a THING.

I was lucky enough to win a mini photoshoot with the amazing photographer Kenzie D. (@kennydawn on IG), and she told us to meet her on the north side of the capitol. Boy were we in for a treat! It was a beautiful day and the trees were in full bloom.

It is funny to move somewhere where the downtown area is somewhere you actually want to go and hang out, and not feel creeped out or scared the whole time you are there (read, downtown LA). Here are a few snapshots from the day, professional & not.

If you live in Utah, I highly recommend spending a little time walking around the capitol building and exploring downtown Salt Lake City! Let me know your favorite spots down there!

Easter with ASOS

Easter is just around the corner, and I turned to my favorite, trusty ASOS to find the perfect Sunday outfits! I love ASOS because I can literally always find something within my budget. No matter if I’m willing to spend a little bit more on a good dress, or I want just a plain tee, I always end up happy! They have good deals going on often too, like right now they have 10% off if you are a student, and free shipping when you spend over $40! Sounds like a good deal to me. Here are a few of my personal favs–

image1xxl Loving the color and detail of this ruffled dress.

image4xxl These butterfly sleeves are so dreamy, and I just picture this with a great pair of strappy sandals! Great price too, found here.

image1xxl-1 If you have an extra $338 laying around, I demand you get this Ted Baker dress. It is simply perfect in every way.

image1xxl-2 Saving the best for last…this beauty! Holy cow…paired with a Honey Slip, to hide what you don’t want seen:)

image1xxl-3 The perfect white strap heel for only $40!

image1xxl-4 These are just sort of fun for upcoming summer!

image1xxl-5 I’m assuming metallic is in because these are so good.

image1xxl-6 I recently bought these in gray, which seem to be sold out. But I love them! They are super comfortable.

 

Let me know if you buy anything and what you are eyeing from ASOS! Happy shopping and happy FRIDAY!

Bathing Suit Blues

Well, it is that time again! Spring is right around the corner and you start thinking about vacations, and warm weather, and the unavoidable bathing suits. Haha. Unless you live in Southern California that is, where it is always a perfect 85 degrees and you can wear a bathing suit year round.

If you are like me, I am always on the hunt for the perfect suit! You know, comfortable, cute, not too revealing, a reasonable price…all the good things. Luckily, one pieces and not-so-skimpy two pieces have been on the trend lately, so that gives us a lot more options! I have a hard time paying, actually I just will not pay, more than like $80/$90 for a swim suit, I just can’t do it. I’ve scoured the internet and found some of the best suits for the best prices (in my opinion) 🙂

This tankini top from Kingdom and State is pretty much everything I could ever want. I love the coverage, print, and pair it with a pair of high waisted or bikini bottoms, and you are set!

Has anyone heard of Rosegal before? Or shopped there? I’m pretty sure that it is a China site, and it makes me a little nervous. BUT! I have shopped from other sites similar before and have been really happy, so I am going to purchase these 2 suits and give them a try. With being so tall (5’9″), sometimes buying one pieces online never works, but they are so cheap that I know I would easily be able to resell them for what I paid.

I have never purchased anything from Revolve Clothing before, but this stunner good out to me! First, you can never go wrong with black, and I love the simplicity of it, with a little bit of fun detail!

Please tell me you haven’t forgotten about American Eagle! Obviously that is where my whole wardrobe was from in high school (think collared shirts under sweaters, thick strapped corduroy flip flops, slip on clop thingys…you know what I am talking about!)…and now they are even my go to for a great pair of jeans. As I was browsing I found myself on AE’s website, and I was impressed! They have a ton of cute (& modest) options for super reasonable prices! This gold ruffle piece is a fav.

Last but certainly not least, something from our favorite place, Target! For $25 this could either be the best deal ever, or it could be really bad. It is sort of a bummer that it’s an online only item, but it is definitely worth a try…it’s so dang cute!

Now tell me, where are your favorite swimsuits from, and what do you look for in the perfect summer suit?
