Happy Tuesday, babes!! Okay, I am BEYOND excited for today’s post because it feature’s my best friend’s new jewelry company, Lark and Love!

I met the founder, Alex, in college and have been SO blessed by her friendship for the past three years. When I first decided to start a blog, I will never forget the amount of overwhelming support I received from her, and it has not slowed down since. I can’t tell y’all how many times I have thought over the past year and a half “holy cow, how the heck would I do this without Alex?!”.

Okay, I’m done with the mushy gushy stuff, let’s talk about the JEWELS! First off, how perfect are these earrings?! They come in several different colors, so you have lots to choose from! ***Also, you can use code EMILY15 to receive 15% off your entire purchase!!***

Next, I’m obsessed with her adorable gold bracelets that are perfect for stacking! Y’all know I love a good arm party, and these bracelets are my new favorites!

I hope y’all love her jewelry as much as I do!

The Best Self Tanner for Summer

Romper: Sold Out (Similar, Similar) | Heels: Dolce Vita (on sale!!) | Purse: Similar | Self Tanner: St. Tropez | Foundation: Girogio Armani | Bronzer: Urban Decay | Blush: Bobbi Brown | Eye Shadow: Urban Decay | Lipliner: Stila (Pink Moscato) | Lipstick: Stila (Baci)

With Summer right around the corner, it’s time to bust out those self tanners! As my mom always said, “if you can’t tone it, tan it!” (lol). But really, I find that a pretty bronzed glow always gives me an extra little boost of confidence!

I have tried countless self tanners, but ALWAYS come back to the same one- St. Tropez! I’ve been using this lotion for about three years, and can always rely on it. I know some people get super freaked out when they hear “self tanner”, but I promise this one is very natural looking! It is gradual, so you get to decide how dark you want to get. I usually put it on at least 3 times a week!

As y’all know, I do most of my shopping at Nordstrom, which is why I love that they have such a great selection of beauty products. Not only am I able to get all of my clothes, shoes, & purses, but also all of my cosmetics as well! Since I do work full time and run my blog, I don’t always have a ton of time to shop, which is why I love that Nordstrom makes it SO easy!! Seriously, it’s such a time saver!

I just bought my romper a couple weeks ago but it’s already sold out (SO sad)! However, I did link a couple other white rompers that I am totally obsessed with! I also linked all of my makeup deets!

Holy moly, how is it already May?! I went to type out “this semester just flew by”, but then remembered I’m no longer a student (lol)! In my defense, I still live in a college town and am constantly surrounded by college students!

I have been so excited to blog this dress, cause it’s easily one of my favorite dresses I’ve ever owned! The floral pattern, lace details, and pom poms make this dress so unique! I paired it with my favorite block heels (they literally match everything) and a cute little clutch!

I hope everyone has a great week!

This past Saturday night, I had the pleasure of going to Reward Style’s official launch party of the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, and it was an absolute blast! The attire was black tie, so when I saw this dress, I knew it would be absolutely perfect! The cut is so flattering and the fabric is very breathable.

For those of y’all in high school, prom is just right around the corner, so I’ve linked all my favorite dresses below! I know prom dress shopping can be a little stressful, but luckily Nordstrom makes it SO easy! They have everything you need, from short dresses, to long dresses at every price point. If you don’t live near a Nordstrom, they offer free shipping AND free returns, so you can do everything from the comfort of your home!

Happy Sunday, cuties! I just got home from an amazing weekend at the Reward Style conference! It was such an amazing experience, getting to learn from some of the best in the business and getting to meet so many boss babes! I follow so many incredible people on social media, but it’s so fun meeting them in person! And let me tell you, they are just as gorgeous in person as they are on their blogs!

I prepped for the conference by heading to Nordstrom and getting all my outfits, shoes, an accessories! Since there were many different events all throughout the weekend, from brand meetings to cocktail parties, I needed tons of outfits. I loved being to able to purchase everything I needed from the same place and having it shipped to my house for free!

I got this little floral romper last week and am just in love with the pattern! Florals are one of my favorite spring trends, which is why I was immediately drawn to this romper… then I saw the back and I was SOLD!

I am SO excited because today I am packing up and heading to Dallas for the Reward Style Conference! This will be my first year, so I am eager to learn a bunch and meet other amazing bloggers!

When it comes to packing for a weekend getaway, my Barrington duffle bag is my go-to! If you’ve never heard of Barrington bags, you have to go checkout their website because everything is customizable. You get to pick everything, from the print to the monogram stripe! I choose the checkered pattern for my tote and duffle bag, which I get compliments on ALL the time. This pattern is a classic and will never go out of style!

I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Floral Free People Dress

Dress: Free People (also love this one)| Shoes: Dolce Vita (on sale) | Purse: Similar | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelet: David Yurman | Bracelet: Nordstrom

Free People has done it again! Y’all, I could not be more in love with this little number! The pattern, the low-cut front, the overall fit of the dress- it’s all perfection!

I was shopping with my mom at Nordstrom last weekend when I saw this dress, and instantly knew I had to have it! Nordstrom is always our go-to store (hehe what’s new), because we can both shop our favorite brands in one place! It has honestly gotten to the point where when I say “hey let’s go shopping”, she doesn’t ask where, we just meet at Nordstrom (LOL)! It’s just so convenient because I can put together a full outfit, from clothing, to shoes, to jewelry without leaving the store!

I hope everyone has a great week!
