Alas, we are back to the grind of school, work, and life back in Utah! It feels so amazing to be back home and back with each other. We were living in separate states for about a month because Sarah went back to Utah to work while I stayed in Missouri working with my husband, so we just reunited this week!
We're sure any sister can confirm that when you don't see each other for a while, it is always the exact same when you get back together, even if you hadn't seen each other for a long time. You just go back to where you left off!
We are already down one week of this college semester. Yippe! But that also means that we are creeping closer to...FALL! Which we are super excited for because this heat is becoming a bit unbearable, AND we get to start dressing in warm, cozy sweaters and boots. So we wanted to do a last bon voyage to summer with these cute peachy items. Sheinside seriously has some great items, like this peach dress. It is only $13!! Like, how can you beat that? The fabric is super soft and stretchy and we love that it ties in the middle so it can kind of hide any food belly we might have, lol. It is versatile too, so you can wear it with heels, flip flops, or sandals for a more casual look.
We love rompers because they are shorts and a top in one aka EASY outfit. This exact one opens a bit much in the front though, so Sarah had to safety pin it, keep that in mind if you buy it!
We just love Provo, which is where these pictures are taken and also where we are from! If anyone is planning on visiting, let us know! We will be your tour guides and give you all the best foodie places to go! :)
Hope you are having a FAB week!! Thanks for reading!
I know every girl has that one bag that you cannot part with. It is the bag that has been with you through thick and thin. Traveled with you across the country or was used as a backpack carrying all your books, laptop, papers, and endless supply of junk you never needed.
This Micheal Kors bag was that bag to me. We have been through several different countries, 4 years of college, road trips, numerous flights as my carryon luggage, countless amounts of shopping sprees, and even theme parks. And in despite of it all, it still holds its shape so well and looks good as new!
We believe there are a few key items that a girl needs to spend more money on than others. A good bag is one of those! If you can have a bag that lasts years and can be rung through the ringer and still looks amazing, wouldn't you spend a bit more money on it, rather than buying 5 different purses over the course of the same time?
I have had such great experinece and satisfaction with my Michael Kors purses. They are great with keeping their shape, color and are so so so durable! And not to mention that they have great customer service. An example of that was when my handle broke on one of my tote bags, I went into the Micheal Kors store, told them the story, and they let me pick out a whole new purse! So I love this brand to say the least, lol. anytime I get good customer service, I become loyal to that brand/company.
I linked a couple of great camel colored purses below. The color camel is such a staple piece for my wardrobe because it goes with almost everything and compliments almost every outfit!
I hope you are all having a wonderful HUMP day. We are half way through the week! Woo hoo! My husband and I just bought a new house and are moving in next Wednesday. so I am literally counting down the hours and days. lol.
Thanks for reading!!
So this park is just like a mile from our house here in St. Louis. It is so cute and fun to hang out. We like to feed the ducks bread at the pond. We have probably been to this park a dozen times for carnivals, pictures, and just playing and relaxing. But the weather is a KILLER especially with the heat and humidity, so an hour is usually the max time to be out in the sun and then I'm tapped out!
That's where a good, breathable and inexpensive dress comes into play! I love these dresses from Discount Divas because 1. THE PRICE 2. they are sooo comfortable and breathable in this weather 3. they are versatile so i can wear them casually with a pair of sneakers or wear them with heels for church or a lunch date! You can shop at Discount Divas through they're Facebook page here, They are always posting new items and have some great deals! You can see their style and looks through their Instagram here.
Anyone else as excited for school to start as me?? I always am so so excited to be done with school and for summer to start. Then a month goes past and I start missing school again! I must be crazy, lol. But I just love school and learning and the whole atmosphere. I was saying in my previous post that I really like routine and structure in my days, and that is exactly what I get with school. I love having all my classes, work and life organized in my planner.
I must also be so excited to start because it is my last and final semester of school! Woo hoo! I will be graduating with a bachelors in business marketing and business management,
It is weird to think that I will have to get a real like job/career! haha. It's like you are working towards this "degree" for years and then it actually comes and you're like, okay, what do I do now? But I am sure I will find a good job that I love. Marketing is exactly what we are doing through blogging anyway so I have learned a lot in just that.
But as far as back to school goes, there's also a back to school wardrobe that comes with it! This was always my favorite part of a new year of in elementary, junior high and high school. I remember feeling so much pressure for the first day of school outfit and literally spent weeks picking the outfit out. Anyone else who did this?!
I feel like you can never go wrong with a casual look with a cap, overalls and t-shirt. It's like a summer-back to school staple! You can re-wear and mix these items so many different ways too. Instead of wearing heels though, you can pair a cute pair of adidas or converse or flats for a more casual/comfortable look. Asos has some super cute rompers, which you can shop here and items that are 70% off right now. Check their sale out here.
Hope you guys are enjoying the rest of your summer and start of a new school year, whether that be high school, college, or your kiddies school!
