I love this pretty in pink, feminine look! My top is actually a dress, but I paired it with white jeans for a fun contrast! Let's be honest, in the Winter my skin is as pale as the dress is!!  While I normally don't wear pumps in my everyday wardrobe, I can never pass up a deal on shoes at TjMaxx!  (Also my shoes are covered in snow...perks of living in the Midwest! ;-)!)

This cozy robe was given to me by my mom before I moved back into my second year of college! Now you will love to hear where she got it!!! LOL This heart filled bathrobe is from Walmart! Honestly, some of my favorite lounge wear I have spontaneously purchased at my local Walmart! My favorite pair of sweatpants are only $5 from Walmart and you bet I have them in every color!!

Live Happy with Natural Life

Happy Monday Friends! 

I am very excited to share this blog with you all!!  I have received my first brand collaboration with Natural Life! Natural Life is a brand near and dear to my heart, not only for their products, but for the positive message they spread everyday!

 I first became introduced to Natural Life when my Aunt Jeanette from Texas sent me a birthday gift(she always sends the best gifts!!)! The gift included Natural Life's recycled Happy Bag, a small prayer box, as well as my favorite coffee cup to this day that says "Life is Crazy Good".  Every time I receive a new happy bag or coffee cup from Natural Life it instantly becomes my favorite!! :-) Natural Life not only creates products that make you feel good, but they stand for a good message.

A few things Natural Life believes in:

It's the little things that mean the most

Kindness really does matter

You should ALWAYS  be yourself

Do what you love

 

Scroll to see the amazing free-spirited clothes I just received from them!

A message we all should strive for everyday...Live Happy. This long sleeve shirt is so easy to wear for a casual look! You can dress it up with jeans and brown boots, or lounge around the house in leggings! I am wearing a size medium for a more loose look!

Get yours here!

Looking for pieces to transition between winter/spring, this Kimono is perfect! I paired this with a long sleeve and lighter washed jeans. In the spring/summer this Kimono would be perfect to wear with a maxi dress! The taupe color is easy to match with just about any color you may have! I love how versatile it is for anyone and everyone! Another bonus, it's a one-size fits all!

I LOVE this boho shirt! The flowy top is great to dress up with light jeans, or even a colored maroon jean! I typically like looser fitting tops, and this will easily be one of my favorites! Embroidered detail is one of my favorite trends, and LOVE that keyhole back! 

Get yours here!

Can a girl ever have too many bags?! These bright colors along with the adorable message are bound to make you smile! I like to put my go to beauty products and keep this pouch in my purse! It's the perfect size to keep everything organized!

Get yours here!

Not only do they have amazing gift items, but they have the most beautiful clothes!

You can check out Natural Life online, or see them in boutiques such as Francesca's and Altar'd State!  (my favorite store!!)

National Bridal Market in Chicago

What a month it has been! September has been one crazy, but exciting month. As many of you know I have worked for a bridal store, Modern Dress in my hometown for almost three years now. This past weekend I was lucky enough to travel to Chicago to attend Bridal Market. This trip was such a wonderful learning experience and definitely was the perfect reassurance of my passion for fashion!

 A Night Out In Chicago

Saturday night was a fun night for us girls! We were able to go to dinner and experience a little of Chicago! For dinner we went to the cutest nautical themed restaurant called the Hampton Social!  

After enjoying dinner, we traveled to Restoration Hardware. I was immediately in heaven when entering Restoration Hardware! How fun to enjoy the atmosphere and people while going while moving from floor to floor admiring the design of each room!

To end the night we went to the Drake Hotel! This hotel has carried rich history in the city of Chicago. For over 80 years! The Drake Hotel has been described as a symbol of white glove elegance. The hotel has accommodated guests from Queen Elizabeth to Elizabeth Taylor. You could just feel the history as soon as you entered the grand hotel!

 

Market Day 1:

Rise and shine!

8 AM we were ready to go and enjoying breakfast at the Merchandise Mart. The Merchandise Mart is the second largest building in the world with 4,000,000 square feet in floor space. As we entered the 7th floor, I was overwhelmed with how many booths filled the room!

We first went to Mori Lee to enjoy a runway show and choose dresses from the Spring 2018 Collection! After the bridal show, we hand picked prom dresses! While picking out these dresses, you can quickly see what the trends will be this upcoming season!

After Mori Lee, we visited many other designers we carry at Modern Dress including, Badgley Mischka, Maggie Sottero, and Casablanca! The day was long, but the greatest hands on experience I could ever imagine!

 

 

Market Day 2:

Our second and final day began with Jasmine Bridal. After a little breakfast at Jasmine we quickly went to work to pick out Spring bridesmaids dresses!

After bridesmaids, we had to do a bit more prom shopping!  For prom we visited Faviana. Howard from Faviana showcased these beautiful prom dresses which made the experience even more entertaining! Day 2 came to an end and it was back to our little store in Iowa.

 

 

 

 I can't be thankful enough for this opportunity! I can't wait to go again!!

With love,

A Week With My Wardrobe: College Edition

School is officially in session!

As I am slowly falling back into a routine, so are my outfits! I would describe my college style to be more casual and easy going. Always on the go from class to class, I make sure comfort is my number one priority. 

My schedule this semester is a little odd compared to most. I don't have class on Monday, Wednesday, or Fridays. On my days off I enjoy studying at coffee shops, as well as working at Modern Dress! Unfortunately that means Tuesdays and Thursdays I am on the go from 8am-5pm.

The outfits I chose to show are some of my favorite basic pieces I have in my closet. I also included what I like to wear when I am off for class and working! 

 

Monday

For my Monday outfit, I chose a black high-low maxi skirt paired with a fun grey tank top! This outfit is so easy to dress up with jewelry, or a fun shoe!

On Monday's I usually like to find a study spot outside on campus! :-)

Grey Tank: Forever 21

Black Maxi: TjMaxx

 

Tuesday

If I were to choose an outfit that best fits me (and could honestly wear everyday of my life) it would be this one.

I love this simple outfit for so many reasons. First, I love mixing black and brown together in my outfits. The brown just pops so well with the black tank. Secondly, if you know me, you know I always always always am wearing hats. They just complete almost every casual outfit for me. Lastly, this outfit is so moveable with the wide legged jeans! LOVE!

Blank Tank: Rue 21

Belt: American Eagle

Jeans: Target

Shoes: Target

Purse: Made Well

Hat: .... (stole from my mama)

 

Wednesday

Wednesday is here, which means work day!

This is the perfect break in my week to get my mind off of class and onto work! Every Wednesday I drive back to my hometown of Boone to work at a bridal store, Modern Dress. This job has been the best learning opportunity for me when it comes to fashion, business, and people skills! For this outfit I paired our new logo t-shirts with a delicate tulle skirt! 

Shirt: Modern Dress

Skirt: Francesca's

 

Thursday

Back to class for my Thursday outfit! 

Can you sense the pattern that I have an obsession with black!!!

I would say 70% of my closet is black, white or grey. Black is just so easy to throw on and pair with anything!  I love this form fitting workout outfit, because it is so easy to run around campus. And why wouldn't I put a hat with it??

P.S. thanks grandma for my new running shoes ;-)

Tank: Old Navy

Jacket: Maurices

Pants: Lulu Lemon

Shoes: Nike

Hat: Chi Omega

 

Friday

Friday! Let's get ready for the weekend!

My favorite color lately has been olive. I think this is the perfect color to transition from Summer to Fall. Especially with changing weather, I always like to keep my outfits lightweight. 

Sweatshirt: Gap

Jeans: Express

Shoes: Journeys 

 

I can easily say it feels so good to be back at college surrounded with all of my friends and back to learning lots of new things!

Hope you enjoyed a peek into what I wear in my week! :-)

With love,

b.e. good
