13 Colorful Dresses to Wear to Work

colorful work dresses

I love a good colorful dress. ICYMI I wore a bright yellow dress to work yesterday. And I’ll likely find myself in a bold pink one today.

In my mind, nothing screams “summer” more than a boldly-hued dress… so any good summer shopping haul needs to include a killer selection of colorful work dresses.

Navy need not apply.

What is Blogging and How Do Bloggers Make Money?

White Fringe Shift Dress

Sorry for the late post, friends. This one’s a big one, so I needed one extra night to work on it.

At least three or four times each week, I’m asked either about blogging as a concept, or about how bloggers make money (the latter is much more frequently asked than the former). It seems like there is a lot of confusion as to what exactly I do, why I do it, and how I’ve managed to monetize it.

Sooooo…. hopefully this lil post clears some of the air.

My Favorite Summery Workout Clothes + Workout Tips

Blue Workout Outfit

This summer, I’m focusing on my health and fitness. I’ve been waking up at 6AM every day to workout before work. Eating at least relatively healthy. Drinking a minimum of 8-10 glasses of water per day.

To help further matters (also because I can’t be trusted around french fries), I’ve teamed up with my friend Kami of The Kalon Life. Kami’s been helping me with everything from meal planning to working out (she’s an amazing personal trainer here in Dallas!).

And since I’m now going through a lot more workout clothes per week, shopping has been on the mind as of late. So I thought I’d round up some of my favorite summery workout clothes… And team up with Kami to bring y’all some of her favorite summer workout tips for getting and staying healthy!

9 Books on my Reading List Right Now

Fiction Dramas to Read this Summer

In case you didn’t know, I’m an avid reader. And I always have been. I’ve probably averaged around 2 books a month since I was like 7 years old. Doing the math, that’s 480 books in my lifetime.

And that’s my conservative estimate.

Sure, I’ll have the odd book that takes me an entire month (or two)… but then I’ll encounter a book like the one I’m reading right now. One that makes me stay up till 3AM reading, averaging 200 pages a night, because it is just that engrossing.

As it is summer and everybody is on the lookout for the next great beach read, I thought I’d share my current reading list – all of the fiction dramas to read this summer (including the one I’m reading right now!) in case one of them catches your eye!

Colorful Clutches to Get You In the Summery Mood

LOFT Orange Straw Clutch with White and Gold Jack Roger Sandals

What a fun weekend. Seriously. I don’t think I can remember the last time I had such a great weekend, full of friends and relaxation and fun.

Such a fun weekend, in fact, that I fell asleep last night without writing today’s post. (Rookie mistake!)

Today’s post is all about colorful summer clutches. Because just sticking to 50 shades of beige all summer long is way too boring.

Oh and PS all of my picks are under $200 (and all but two are under $100!) so get excited.
