Happy Monday, All!


Over this past Labor day weekend and last week/weekend, I’ve been camping in the woods with good friends, I turned a quarter century, danced until I literally couldn’t walk any longer & I had the honor of standing by one of my best friends getting married! I think I will take a seat now; I am one happy but very tired girl haha.


Even thought the weather is really nice here in Portland, I’ve still had fall on the mind and slowly building my wardrobe for the transition into cooler temps. I have been loving these Vince Camuto OTK (over-the-knee) boots. I got them at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for half the price, but I have linked some cheaper similar versions if you’re not wanting to drop the $$. I’ve also been loving Olive for fall (or anytime really!) Also – the shape of this Lush top is flattering for anyone. You can find my look here:

I’ve had a lot of questions about my necklaces I’m wearing with this look – they are by the brand @lovewell_ follow them on insta and their website is www.lovewellbrand.com! They also gave me a coupon code to use for their necklaces 🙂 Use “CHELSEA20” to take 20% off your whole purchase.

A Few Life Updates:

Thank you for stopping by on this lovely Tuesday! I have been quite MIA from Instagram and my blog. This is the first time I have had my blog in the summer and I’ve had a hard time keeping up!

I saw this quote the other day and it couldn’t seem more fitting “August is like the Sunday of Summer.” TRUE. It feels like summer was the weekend and suddenly it’s Sunday and you have to prepare to get everything ready for the craziness of the week.

I just wanted to say amidst the craziness, I thank you all for your continued support as I try to find a balance between work, life and blogging. I also can’t believe I will be coming up on my quarter life birthday next week and 1 year blogversary here in October! 🙂 So exciting! I am so fortunate and grateful for all the people I’ve met and opportunities I have been given in this blogging journey.




Now onto this top from THML Clothing! They have such perfect everyday wear for the modern woman with a touch of boho flare (some of their things remind me of Anthropologie, but way cheaper.) When I received this lovely top it was such great quality! It’s super light weight for summer wear and also could be layered to transition into the fall months. You can shop their lookbooks here: Summer 16′

I’ve been obsessing over these sunnies from Nordstrom only $24! They have a very flattering cat eye shape and they are ultra sun blocking which is something I have to have when it comes to sunglasses!

All other details shop below xoxo

Happy Hump Day!

I recently discovered a lovely online boutique called Hello Harper based out of Houston, TX. I initially found them on Instagram @shophelloharper and fell in love with their clothing! I’ve come to find out through my short blogging days that those Texas girls really know how to dress well 🙂

I immediately was drawn to this girly lace dress. The details were very elegant and I loved that it was still trendy and off the shoulder! Giving my honest opinion to you all, I believe that they truly make a quality product. I would have to say my only reservation is the dress is just a pinch too big for me (but what isn’t!?) 🙂

You can shop this lovely lace OTS dress for only $48 here!

I also have to give a quick shout out to these Steve Madden heels – if you’re looking for a classy timeless heel that you can wear all night, these are your shoe. The bulkier heel makes these way more comfortable than the stiletto and I literally wore these ALL night to a wedding on Sat and didn’t take them off until it was quittin’ time. Plus they’re under $90 which is a deal for a quality shoe that won’t leave your feet dying! You can shop all of my outfit details in the links below or by clicking any of the images!

Sharing this striped dress for only $20 on the blog! It’s perfect for summer months and it’s adorable for a day by the beach or wandering downtown.

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Does anyone else feel like the summer months are just so packed you can’t even think!? July was a crazy month, I can’t wait for August though! It will be a little more relaxed so I might be able to get some camping, hiking and outdoor time in! When you’re born and raised in Oregon, it’s just in your bones to want to hang in the woods 🙂 We had a little rain here in Portland recently and it’s made me feel ready for the fall! So did the #NSale, Nordstrom really knows how to make a girl excited for sweater and boot weather. Shop my #NSale picks here, here if you missed them.

The striped dress I’m wearing had me feeling so type of way! Nautical that is, I wish I lived by the ocean so I could have a cute beach theme. I’m loving the pockets on this dress, they add such a cute detail as well as the tied waist! And it’s under $20 – you know I’m all about the deals.

I also love these affordable espadrille shoes! They are a little narrow for my foot but they are probably the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn. I think the block heel really helps with stability and comfort! And they are under $30 🙂

Also – stay tuned for a giveaway coming up soon for hitting 10k on Instagram! So thankful for all of your support and following me on this blogging journey. xoxo
